A very clever German shepherd named Ginger managed to escape from a California animal shelter after opening three different doors and waiting at the reception desk for service possibly?
According to the Apple Valley Animal Shelter, Ginger was just determined to win her freedom as she cleverly climbed over the top of her caged kennel and subsequently used her paws, nose and of course some German shepherd ingenuity to maneuver through three different doors.
On September 17, Ginger arrived at the shelter after she was sadly surrendered by her human who had become homeless and no longer could care for his dog. Gina Whiteside, the director of Apple Valley Animal Shelter stated multiple alarms had gone off indicating movement at the shelter. When Animal Control Officers arrived at the shelter, the report indicated the intruder had been moving through the building at a “fast rate of speed.” At the reception desk, officers noted that notebooks, pads and other objects had been scattered about the area and the floor, but suspected a cat had found her way out of a kennel.
By Sunday morning, Ginger was reported missing and to everyone’s chagrin a review of the surveillance video revealed the dog’s adventure. Ginger had apparently headed towards her old home, and when found on Tuesday, she was near where she used to live – about three miles from the shelter.
On the shelter’s Facebook page, Ginger’s intelligence continues to amaze everyone. She is still looking for a home. Please share this gorgeous dog’s story with friends, family and social media contacts.
