When Ginger the Pitbull’s mom, Kassidy, and her partner moved, the poor dog was lonely and bored. She would spend days looking out her window and whining at the senior Pitbull next door.
Previous to the move, Ginger had been, as Kassidy put it, a “socialite.” She had a group of canine friends she saw every day, and she adapted her playstyle to match the dog with whom she was playing.
After the move, Ginger seemed jarred. When she wasn’t whining at the window, she was sad, making her mom feel terrible. She started to perk up again once she met her neighbor, Chloe.
At 11 years old, the senior dog had lived with her mom, Cherelle, and didn’t enjoy the company of other canines. Since the day Cherelle brought Chloe home from the shelter, it had just been the two of them.
When Chloe and Ginger had their first playdate, the senior dog seemed set in her ways. Chloe growled at Ginger and even snapped, and if Ginger had been any other dog, the story would have stopped there.
But Kassidy knew Ginger needed a canine friend at their new home. So they decided to try again in their yard without leashes to see if they would be more comfortable.
They let the two dogs loose with bated breath, and Ginger and Chloe became immediate pals. Now, whenever she goes out to the yard, she first goes to Kassidy’s door to see if her new friend can come out to play.
