Sweet and refreshing! Ginger Snap, a 4-year-old Australian Kelpie mix, certainly does live up to her name!
Ginger Snap is looking for a home where she will get vigorous daily exercise and then relaxing snuggle sessions. She’s a smart girl who loves to learn. She already does well on leash which makes walking her a breeze. And she knows some tricks and will gladly show you for some treats! Who can say no to that smile?
Ginger Snap would be happiest living in a suburban or country home with a yard with lots of room to play and romp. She is not suited for urban or apartment living. While she has lived with other dogs before, she prefers lower energy playmates, and would be love to be the Queen of the Castle with lots of time with her people. (She has not been cat-tested, but knowing her breed(s), cats probably aren’t the best bet.)
A volunteer recently took this gorgeous gal on a 5 mile walk and had this to say, “She’s good on a leash and in the car, good around people and other dogs… (typical herding dog) likes to chase wildlife (squirrels, birds, geese etc) and cats.”
In a nutshell:
- Walks well on leash with a gentle leader or front clip harness.
- Really loves the dog park and running around with other dogs.
- Excellent with young kids.
- Great in the car and willingly jumps into any vehicle.
- Knows a variety of commands and learns quickly.
