Michael Vick is a very controversial public figure. He’s responsible for organizing illegal dogfighting and also for training and breeding allegedly more than a hundred dogs solely for the illegal sport.
Ginger is one of the dogs that survived and rescued from Michael Vick’s operation. After the rescue operation, Ginger, along with the other dogs, were found scared, malnourished, and doesn’t know anything about the world.
Usually, dogs rescued from dogfighting are euthanized shortly after being saved for fear of aggression towards humans. However, because Michael Vick’s case was very much in the limelight, people became more aware and wanted to give a chance to the dogs and rehabilitate them.
In Ginger’s case, she was fostered by Stacy Dubuc. Stacy found Ginger to be fearful and anxious about everything. Ginger didn’t even want to be touched by humans and had no experience playing with other dogs.
Stacy started introducing Ginger slowly to the world and showing her how great it can be. After eight months of being in her care, Stacy eventually decided to adopt Ginger and be part of her life.
Surely enough, Stacy showed Ginger love, and Ginger responded well and started to come out of her shell. She was eventually allowing Stacy to touch her, and she also started to play.
After eight months of being adopted, Stacy moved in with a friend who also had a dog. She was nervous for Ginger at first but eventually realized that it was the best thing to happen to her.
Ginger and her friend’s dog instantly bonded and became friends. Through the other dog, Ginger learned how to eat and how to play. She learned how to live life in general, and she also learned how great the world could be.
Thanks to Stacy, Ginger changed from an anxious and sad dog to a dog that loves life and eyes sparkling with happiness. Here’s a video showing Ginger’s story and transformation that will surely warm your heart.
