About Ginger Snap

Adoption Fee: $450.00

Meet Ginger Snap. She's 4-5 months old, ginger/red colored, and the softest thing we have ever touched. She's on track to be slightly larger than the average female golden, though lots of factors may affect that as she grows. She has tons of energy and loads of personality, then snuggles in tight for naps on foster mom or dad's lap, or curled up against her furry foster sister. She loves meeting new people - men, women, and kids, and doesn't know a stranger. She's having an absolute blast with the younger foster sister (a year and a half old golden with a strong play drive) and is trying to make friends with the 7-year-old golden, who is not as impressed with the puppy shenanigans. Ginger loves to run, play, wrestle, tug, play bitey face, chew on toys, and run and chase some more. She is very active and needs both a structurally fenced yard and a young, playful sibling so she can live her best (energetic) life. She is unknown with cats so she needs to be in a home without cats. A home where someone is home often is preferred. She's in that adorably clumsy stage where her back legs look too long for her body and she's not always quite sure where all her legs are at any given moment. She has mastered a new technique of convincing one of her sisters to chase her, then right before she gets trampled she ducks into a tiny ball so she can be jumped over, then starts chasing instead of being chased.

She loves tennis balls (defuzzing is more fun than chewing on them since her mouth is still small), squeaky toys, Kong knots toys, and is a champ at kongs with frozen PB or canned food when she's in the crate. She likes a towel or blanket to dig/burrow in as well. She would love physical challenges like agility - she likes climbing on things at angles - and auditioned as a therapy dog with a friend who had a death in the family and asked for a puppy visit. (She did great - the perfect combination of snuggles and clumsy, silly distractions).

Ginger occasionally leaks a small amount of urine at times right when she falls asleep (including when on Foster Mom's lap). It's a tablespoon or less, and the vet is hopeful she will grow out of this soon. But in the interest of transparency, this is something that might need follow-up.

Bad habits we're working on: counter-surfing and eating mulch. Good habits she's made lots of progress on: Sit (in general, to get out of crate, and before receiving food bowl or going outside), stay, down, come. She tends to get sassy with a funny but piercing awoowoowoo or yip if we're taking too long with the treat as positive reinforcement :-) so we're working on learning that barking does not get treats. She can jump on the couch and run up and down the (carpeted) stairs with confidence.  She keeps her crate dry and relatively quiet overnight (a little whining when we say goodnight and barks if she needs to go out). She's down to 0-1 accidents each day, and the last few accidents have been urinating on the rug as we're walking to the door. She has had 7 100% outside potty days over the last 2 weeks so we're almost there. She walks fine on a leash so far (using a front-clasp harness), is fine in the car, and is curious about loud noises such as lawnmowers, motorcycles, and a helicopter. She hasn't experienced significant fireworks or thunder but I don't anticipate a fear response. She is so cute and so sweet. Just a perfect little golden nugget.

Hi my name is Prince! I am a two year old goldendoodle who is looking for my new furever home. I am a very active and high energy dog who would best fit with a family who can keep up with me. I love to play with toys and can play fetch for hours. I am fully potty trained and let you know when I need to be let outside. I play well with other doggo friends and would do great in a home with another dog, however, that is not necessary. Overall, I am a good dog but have a few behavioral tricks to learn that I sometimes forget when I get so excited. My foster Mom thinks I am a quick learner though and have improved everyday she has had me. I love to play in the backyard and run zoomies so a fenced in yard would be best, but not required. When I go on walks I do better with a harness because I get easily distracted and overly excited when I see squirrels. I sleep in my crate at night but usually only enter it if my foster Mom bribes me with treats. During the day I follow her everywhere she goes because I prefer to be around people than be left alone. When I get worn out from all my playing I love to snuggle up next to any human while I rest. My foster Mom said she is happy to answer any questions you may have about me, hope to meet you soon!
