This is Ginger, the most lovable 5 month old Boxer Lab mix that is looking for love. She was found roaming the streets of Abilene around the 3200 block of North First Street when she was picked up by the Abilene Animal Shelter. Because Ginger is a stray, she will need to find a home right away before her time runs out this weekend. I spent some time with Ginger and discovered she loves to sit in your lap and just chill out, which is a good thing that she only weighs 25 pounds. She is very well behaved for a 5 month old.

Ginger's general disposition is very calm and laid back, even though she is still a puppy she's not the jumpy kind like most puppies are at this age. She is light brown in color with white markings like a boxer and she's looking for someone to give her some love and attention in return. I think she'll be great with kids because when she saw that my daughter had her ball, she became very energetic and playful. She really needs someone that that wants a life long friend and that likes to play and run.

Please help me save Ginger? Tell friends, coworkers and family, help spread the word about the KEAN-Critters up for adoption, tell anyone that will listen and/or appreciate a story of a dog that needs love. Because Ginger came in as a stray, she really needs to find a home right away or she'll be put down. Please help.

More Info:

Ginger came in as an owner turn-in, for all I know she is not house broken nor do I think she's an indoor dog. Ginger will only need shots as her micro-chipping and she is already fixed. Ginger's I.D. # is: A19416586 and can be seen at the Animal Control Shelter.
