Sweet Ginny just wants to love you! One thing is clear, she is a big, silly love bug. She will warm up to you quickly and press her head and front body into you while you scratch her. When she's really happy, she will crumble into your lap in a puddle of limbs.

Her fosters are helping Ginny learn some manners when on walks. She is very food-motivated and has picked "sit" up very quickly and is making huge improvements! As a former yard dog, Ginny needs slow introductions to other dogs. She has been making progress with the help of some APA! tried-and-true techniques. She'll do her best in a fenced-in backyard, though she is more interested in living that comfy indoor life. Ginny is fully house-trained and has been doing just fine home alone. She loves her crate and goes in there when she just wants to chill.

Ginny is so worth it! With continued training and love and patience, she will be your goofy, sweet best friend forever. She is heartworm positive, but all that means is that she'll need a couple of months of rest during treatment, at APA!'s expense. Come and meet her today!
Come meet your new best friend
