Arrival Story:
Once upon a time I was turned over to the Morris Animal Shelter in Philadelphia. Then a breed rescue, Operation Scarlet Chinese Shar Pei Rescue of Lancaster saved me. The nice people at Operation Scarlet introduced me to my new Mommy and Daddy and life has been GOOD ever since! Visit the not-for-profit Operation Scarlet Web site at Tell them Ginger sent you!

This note is from my mommy, who I adore and follow everywhere: We have been very fortunate to get Ginger. She is an incredibly affectionate and gentle dog. To think someone threw her out like garbage makes me so angry. Owning a dog should be a life-long commitment between a dog and its owner. Even if the dog is lucky enough to be adopted -- odds aren't good for an adult dog to find a new home in the United States -- the emotional toll on the dog is still great. Ginger has had her rough moments from being abandoned: -- When we first got her, she'd whimper in her sleep, awake with a start and run over and jump in either my husband's lap or mine (whichever one was closer) to cuddle. Now, she just cuddles! -- It took her a year to wag her tail at us! She was affectionate, but you could tell there was a reserved quality to it, like she wasn't letting her guard down. Now, her little butt wiggles with excitement for pretty much everything. -- Even after five years, she still has separation anxiety, although that has lessened over the years as she has settled in.
