This was 4 months ago when we first adopted her. Vet says 2-3yo. She has gained 3-4lbs since and Sasha has lost 3-4. Ginger's paws are alot whiter now also. They were almost brown from being at the shelter. Took us a week and 4 baths to get the shelter smell off her though. We had to have the windows rolled down when we brought her home.
We got her because we wanted a companion for our Corgi while we are at work. Also to help her become more active and lose some weight. Also I have been wanting another dog for some time. I searched for a few months at the surrounding shelters and really liked her attitude towards our daughter when we met her. So we brought her home not knowing what breed or anything about her. She is teaching us now LOL
Very good dog except some chewing problems which we are working through. Great with Sasha and our 4yo daughter. Great with company that comes to visit. Was very timid and flinchy at first. Not sure if it was from the shelter or a previous owner or what. But that is all basically gone now. Stays home with Sasha during the day with little to know problems besides random chewing. Loves to play and CHEW. Sasha finally taught her to fetch instead of taking the toy off to chew somewhere.So overall a very good pup
Loves to wait in sunroom for a squirrel or cat to come in back yard. Then rush out the dog door and chase them away. Last week she actually got hold of a cat and they had a tussle. She came out with a small scratch and little hole in her nose. No real damage just wore out for the rest of the day.
She didnt bark for almost 2 weeks. We thought she was full blood B at the time. Since she barks and her tail is pretty straight we think she is a mix with something. But we arent sure.
Wife and daughter have learned to pick up their shoes and clothes off the floor now :) Daughter has learned to guard her food until she it finished also. She pulled 3 of my shoes from different pairs out in middle of front room one day. Didnt chew any of them. So not sure why but she pretty much leaves my clothes/shoes alone. The girls on other hand have to keep close watch.
