Caption: My name is Ginger. I am a foster dog with happy tail. My foster mom lined my crate with foam ($30-$40 worth of foam) so it would heal. I destroyed it as soon as her back was turned so I still have happy tail.
Ginger is a 3 year old Mastiff with Great Lakes Mastiff Rescue being fostered in Chicago, Il. Unfortunately, we were not able to heal her happy tail so she had to have her tail docked. Ginger is a lovable, small Mastiff only weighing in at 110 lbs. Though small in stauture, she’s big on love. She wants nothing more than to be right next to you at all times. She’s recently started agility training and is doing fabulously. Ginger has high anxiety and OCD so needs to be on daily dosages of clomicalm which helps her greatly. Even with the calming meds, she still continues to be a counter-surfer extraordinaire but no longer needs to steal all the toilet paper in the house for which all the humans are very happy.

omg u cut her tail off?
Did you read what they said. The dog kept injuring her tail banging it against things. The wounds are very hard to keep bandaged, and the dog often reinjures it. The wounds can get infected. So it’s one thing to dock a tail for cosmetic reasons, but it’s another thing when there is a medical reason for it. It’s not like the foster took the dog to the kitchen and hacked it off.
Love big lap dogs & she looks like she’d love to have a lap to keep warm! What a sweetie!
I love the comment about her being “small in stature” – as the mom of three big dogs (including a mastiff mix) I love the idea of a 110 pound teeny mastiff. 😉 She looks like an angel. If I only had room!
