Nonetheless, Hamburglar doesn't even notice and is all about playing and having fun. Hamburlgar is about 6-7 mos old (as of sept 2016) and ready for a new home with a playmate. This type of mange is NOT contagious. Please apply for this silly pup at www.polkadogz.org!

Animal ID: 57Ginger (female)

Basenji Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Ginger is 12 years young and is a gentle and elegant lady. Picked up as a stray, she had been attacked by another animal and had a 3-inch gaping wound on her chest, a 2-inch wound on her leg and a single puncture wound on the top of her head. Upon arriving at the shelter, it was found that she had a microchip that had originally been implanted in California. The current owner who lives in central FL, was contacted and informed that Ginger would heal fine and her wounds were stitched up, and she was waiting at the shelter. However, her owner chose not to come get Ginger. 4 Lucky Dogs could not bear to see this sweet girl in the shelter ... (Read More)and upon pulling her into rescue, contacted the microchip company two more times to ensure the owner was given every opportunity to get Ginger. A person at an alternate number that the microchip company had listed revealed that the owner had been reached 'but the owner was living a good life now'. We don't know what that means, but we know that Ginger deserves the best in life as well. Ginger is in foster care with 5 other dogs and is fine with all dogs she meets. She is completely house-trained, and does not need a crate. Although she was looking for her owner for a while, she is learning to be happy on her own again. Thanks to a generous donor, Ginger recently had a dental cleaning and one tooth extraction. She has been declared to be in very good shape for her age and smiles and yips a few times in excitement upon getting up every morning. Ginger loves to go on walks and loves car rides, and absolutely LOVES children. At this stage in her life, Ginger is looking for a home where someone is home most of the time, as she loves to be around people. She loves her comfy beds and loves her food, and at 30lbs, is just a perfect girl. Ginger is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations. She is being fostered in the Tampa area and her adoption fee is $75. If interested in adopting Ginger, adoption applications can be found on our website at 4luckydogs.org. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Basenji in Florida
    Basenji Dogs can make good pets in Florida if they match your IifestyIe. The Basenji is a playful, charming, energetic breed. They make excellent family pets but do best with older children. Basenjis can live in an apartment but need lots of daily exercise and long walks. A Basenji likes to chew and should be given toys and attention or it will get into trouble. Basenjis do not do well with cats and other pets beside dogs.
