Arlington, VA

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Ginger, a “sassy” German shepherd/chow/akita mix is keeping the Pet of the Week honors in the family.

Here’s what owner Felicia had to say:

This is Ginger. She is a rescue dog and became part of our family 7 years ago. A Doggie DNA test determined Ginger is mostly German shepherd, mixed with a little chow and akita.

She was born a country girl and was very shy when she first came to us but she has become quite sassy. Ginger loves long walks, socializing along the way, though she is equally happy lounging at home, looking out the front door.

Ginger’s good looks won her second place of mid-size dogs at the Arlington Dogtober Festival (she was robbed!) and her cousin Moe was recently named an Arlington Pet of the Week.

See the many faces of Ginger. She’s playful, silly, pensive, cute and sassy!
