While Ginger was on the streets, she did contract parovirus, or parvo, an often deadly virus. Fortunately, it was caught early enough that she expects to make a full recovery.

The crew at Front Street Animal Shelter did stop by the Dahlberg’s household to provide Ginger early holiday presents: a bunch of treats and gifts.
