Ginger is a boston terrier
that we were fostering but we have decided to keep. She was
rescued when she was 7 years old from a Missouri puppy mill where she lived in a cage her
whole life. She was in rough shape when she came to us.
She was so malnourished that we thought she was brindle, but in
fact her hair was brown from a lack of pigment. The incision
from an operation to remove a cist had opened up and we had to
have that stitched up which meant wearing a cone her first weeks
It has been a hard struggle working
with her but the results have been very gratifying. Now she
has shiny, completely black hair. She gets along with
Winston, Webster and the cats. She is also house broken,
although she still has a mistake once in a while. She stays
in a smaller room during the day because she is crate trained and
that room is small enough so that she won't mess in it.
Along the way she had gone to three homes to
be adopted but it hasn't worked out. We decided not to put
her and us through the adoption process any more and she is now a
permanent member of the family.
