Update! Ginger (AKA Rosie)

I’m using the email address I found in the paperwork of TMC’s Look Here’s when we brought “Rosie” to our group. I know that a lot of people loved her and wanted to know if she found a good home. Below is an email I received from her adopters today. They are now calling her Ginger because their other dog’s name is Rosie! Would you please pass on this report to anyone whom you feel would like to see it? I know she was loved by a lot of people so I thought this would be welcome news.

Thanks in advance.

So hi Hettie, and I hope all the hounds are doing well at your place! Also, I want to give you an update on Ginger!

Ginger is just as you said: she is just the sweetest dog! She has been here a little over 2 weeks, and is dong amazingly well! Although she was a bit timid at first, we see that she is becoming more confident. She is extremely tolerant of Rosie, and it has helped to have another dog for Ginger. She loves romping in the yard, has been wonderful at relieving herself in the yard and on the leash, and enjoys going for rides in the van. Most days we go for a walk down to the marsh to check on the geese, and she has met some people in the neighborhood. Being the social canine she is, she enjoys that.

And she comes and goes in and out of the house by herself, with only some guidance. She is eating well, enjoying her snacks, and has adjusted to our routine. She sleeps well beside our bed on her blankets, and stays right there all night until we get up. We see that she needs the security of being close to us, but this is to be expected.

Ginger is in her crate only when we are away, has the run of the house while we are here, and she will come looking for us during the day between naps. I can tell you that I think she has bonded with all of us quite well, wags her tail, and is letting us know she is happy. We have not yet heard her bark!

When I think about the journeys some of these dogs make, I am so very thankful for the caring people who intervene to help bring these animals home. I know that futures are uncertain for many Greyhounds. But for this one Greyhound, it has made all the difference in the world. You and the folks at the kennel have made all the difference to this dog, and I thank you for all that you do. I hope you will share this with the people at the kennel who have been so important to Ginger.

Thank you so much.
