01/14/14 Update:  Ginger went to the vet today.  She was an instant hit, greeting everyone with the famous Aussie wiggle!  She will be groomed, get all of her shots, heartworm test and micro-chip.  She is one friendly little girl! 01/12/14 Update:  Ginger is an awesome little girl.  She is very affectionate and prefers to be with her people.  She is good in the crate but she does get lonely!  She would prefer to be a couch potato!  She would be the perfect dog for an older couple or a person living alone who really needs company.  It is almost impossible to notice that she is deaf – she’s that good! History:  This cute little 22 pound mini aussie was owner-surrendered to us this morning, and let me tell you, tears were shed.  Her owner adores Ginger, and trusts that Ginger is in good hands with TDL.  Ginger is totally deaf, but does not have any visual impairments that we can tell!  She is very friendly with strangers – she only needs a few second to warm up!  Ginger Doodle does know several hand signals! You can see more of her photos on Facebook. She needs a little help on the leash, and I suspect she has been treated like a princess all of her life – nothing wrong with that!  She is very healthy (she could afford to shed a pound or two) and needs a loving home.

Ginger Doodle gets nervous around infants but did well with toddlers.  Ginger also lived with another small dog and they interacted very well together, however she seems to be nervous around big dogs.  She doesn’t always do well on long car trips… if she can’t see outside, and she doesn’t feel the breeze, she might get sick in the back seat!  Allowing her to skip a meal if you’re planning a trip would be recommended! She is housebroken and crate trained.  So far, she is whimpering once and a while in her crate, but that’s because she can’t hear that we are home and she doesn’t know that she is not alone!  Winter would wake up me barking at 2:30 every morning, just to make sure I was there, and he wasn’t alone.  It was hilarious.  He quickly learned not to be afraid at night! We’ll be working with her over the next few days, evaluating her and introducing her to new things. Ginger Doodle really reminds me of Baby Ga Ga and Squeeze!  She is gorgeous! 01/19/14 Update:  Ginger was adopted by Courtney of Windermere.  Courtney runs her own business, and will soon be creating dog-related products, where Ginger will be her model!  I’m sure we’ll be getting a lot of photo updates!  Ginger has settled in nicely into her new home, and is learning a new routine.

Here’s a video posted on Facebook of Ginger learning agility!
