Ginger is a puppy that loves attention. She'll jump right into your arms. She is a 6 to 8-month-old, peppy Jack Russell mix that is white and tan. She only weighs 10 lbs. and will stay a small dog. Lily likes to talk. She may look shy sitting in the back of her cage, but if you stop by she will come to the door and roll over for you to pet her. She is a 1 to 3-year-old girl with short white and gray fur. She is spayed and up-to-date on vaccinations, so she is $45 to adopt.
