Ginger, 4-month old Corgi mix puppy

You will fall for Ginger in a snap! This cute cookie is a 4-month old, 11-pound Corgi mix pup. Ginger’s owners surrendered her to our shelter because they did not want to housetrain a puppy. This takes a little patience and creativity! She has a beautiful golden-blond, medium-length coat, and cute, fluffy tufts of fur on her ears. She most likely will remain a fairly small dog. Ginger is affectionate and fun to cuddle. She is as playful and fun as any pup could be.
