Ginger has lived with three adults and two teenagers in the home. She is described as relaxed and affectionate towards the children and grew up with them. She will engage in gentle play with the children. Around strangers she is shy for the first several minutes and takes time to warm up. She will allow petting and engage in gentle play. Ginger has never been around cats or dogs.
