Hi there! I'm Ginger, and I am a super sweet little girl. I'm great with other dogs and am very tolerant, which is a good thing because I do have some special needs. You see, after Young at Heart rescued me, they found out during their head-to-toe senior intake exam that I have diabetes. I am now being managed well on insulin and I feel SO much better. I need some more time for my body to simply catch up to years of neglect, and then I will need to have surgery to remove one of my eyes that was severely damaged in my previously life and never looked after. Don't worry, I'll feel so much better after surgery as the eye won't cause me pain anymore, and I can't see out of it anyway! I love to follow my foster mom around the house and in the yard, but I'm not really strong enough (yet!) to go on long walks. I'm very content to just hang out with my sanctuary family and keep them company. I am housebroken, but because of my diabetes, I do have an accident on occasion (I've been told that this is normal for dogs like me!). Despite the little hiccups in my health, I am a gem of a dog and have a great quality of life. Thanks to Young at Heart's amazing supporters, I get to live the Good Life with my sanctuary family for the rest of my life.
