Georgia (formerly named Ginger)

Basic Information
Name: Ginger 
Age: Approx 3 years old 
Breed: Chihuahua Mix 
Weight: 11 lbs 
Special Notes: Her initial greeting to you, she is extremely scared, shakes, and may try to bite but with proper handling can be avoided. Once she gets past this, she is fine. She has a habit of nibbling on her your hands (like an older puppy does). We’ve been working to break that habit, but will need continuous reinforcement.
Georgia’s Ideal Forever Home:
• Quiet, yet playful
• Home most of the time
• Must have another confident calm dog in it
• If kids, respectful and won’t terrorize her and aggravate her anxiety.
• Willing to continually train her and work on her manners to remind her how much of a good girl she is
• Active (loves being outside)
• Previous experience with small dogs and and working with small dog syndrome.

Foster Notes:

Hi! My name is Georgia and my foster family likes to call me georgey porgy, georgey girl, stinker and so much more. My favourite thing in the world is to be by your side and cuddle you. That means I’d REALLY love it if someone was home with me all day (I’m a great study/work buddy). I’m a huge licker (it’s my love language) and even though my foster mom tells me it’s gross and I do it at the wrong moments sometimes, I just can’t help it. As soon as my coat gets pulled out, I know that it’s walk time and my excitement goes THROUGH THE ROOF. They always praise me for how well potty trained I am. I’m not always the best when I see other dogs on leash, but with the proper correction and help from my humans, I’m a really good girl! Dog friends my size are my favourite to play with, the bigger ones I am not so confident with just yet. I’m the stereotypical small dog that can bark unnecessarily (like at my own reflection) sometimes, and just need to be reminded that I shouldn’t do that. I love my food and treats, and will do almost anything for them. I can sit and shake a paw too! I need someone who can be a good leader for me when I get overwhelmed, to remind me how to be a good girl and that socializing isn’t a bad thing.) I wouldn’t mind being in a home with another pup but would prefer them to be around my size. My foster family is ready to help me meet as many people as I need, to make sure I find the perfect forever home.

As with all our dogs Georgia is spayed, up to date on shots and microchipped. If you think she  is what is missing from your home, please fill out an application under the Foster/Adopt tab. If you have previously applied to our rescue and are interested, please email us at 🐾❤️
