A volunteer writes: I have to admit, I’m a big dog lover, and I sometimes overlook the little dogs– but even I was drawn to Ginger’s rotund little body and bright, gentle eyes. As I walked past her cage, Ginger gave me a “come hither” look that I couldn’t ignore. Ginger was clearly used to being pet and cuddled in her former home. She came straight to the front of her cage and nuzzled up to me, letting me pick her up like a baby and take her outside for a bathroom break. Ginger walked easily on the leash, kept her little tail wagging from the moment she was on the ground, and seems to be housetrained. Despite being a bit overweight, Ginger seems quite sprightly and happy to go for walks and explore the neighborhood around the care center. Ginger is sweet, friendly, and loving– plus she loves to cuddle. Come and see this special girl at the Brooklyn ACC today!
