Ginny & Scratch need a new home. They've been used to living indoors but our two children have developed allergies to them and they've been living outdoors for the past 2 months. The TX heat is a bit much for them. Looking to place them in a home together. I've wrapped my brain around all the scenarios, benefits, downfalls, etc of keeping them. The reality is that twice this spring, in a 3 month period alone, my oldest son was taken to ER and admitted due to asthma. We was under care the first time for 3 nights and the second for 2 nights. He suffers from anaphylactic allergies. While he is mostly sensitive to the cat (we are also trying to rehome her), allergy tests reveal the dog allergy is quickly increasing. As a result of the hospitalizations, he's had two rounds of high dose steroids and we need to avoid that as much as possible. At 7 years of age, he has entirely too many stresses on his body, and doctors are urging us get rid of our pets. In addition to his health issues, I have a 2 yr old special needs son, also with allergies (but no sign of asthma yet). Too say life is a little stressful right now would be an understatement. More than anything I want to keep our animals and live as we have for years, but the health effects on my children are too grave. In my past, I have been a vet tech, animal rescuer and foster home for many. I love animals and swore I'd never give any up...and then the health issues began. My animals have not been getting the TLC they need for awhile now and it breaks my heart. I've been trying for months to find a good, quality home for them. We've had a little time and some flexibility with our living situation, but time is running out and we are going to be forced to make some tough decisions that are too hard for me to even think about. Here is a little about our girls: GINNY: Ginny is on the right. 9 yr altered female. DNA tests conclude traces of the following breeds: American Staffordshire Terrior, Finish Spitz (Meaning no evidence found of a purebred parent or grandparent.) 50 lbs. Current on all shots, heartworm preventative, premium dog foods, Omega 3 and probiotic supplements for years. Housed now with another (soul mate) dog, a cat, and two children ages 2 & 7. House-trained & Leash-trained. Ginny is an intelligent girl and was our first "baby" (before children). She is happiest following Mom around the house. Loves to fetch, swim in a lake, pond, ocean. Loves to go for walks or runs. Ginny is a high maintenance dog...like I said she was our first baby and she needs TLC like a child. If you give her that she is golden...a wonderful girl. She smiles. She barks when someone knocks at the frontdoor, so she's a fantastic "watch" dog. While she has raised the eyebrow of many UPS delivery men, she is only looking for some good rubs and pats. She is a bit anxious, so for this, she would be best placed in a home with older children. She is fine with my little ones, but I am practically trained in animal nature and am constantly aware of her comfort level. For example, my 7 year old knows not to throw or kick balls around her (unless it's to her). A ball being passed about makes her a tad nervous and she has been known to nip at the pant leg of the kicker. Ginny prefers the indoors to outdoors and especially is not fond of the cold. She was 34 pounds when we adopted her from the SPCA and after two months of TLC has pretty much maintained a 50+ weight. She loves to play with her soul-mate-sister "Scratch", and they are best with room to run and play, leap off of and bounce over each other. SCRATCH: Scratch is on the left with a white chest. 5 yr altered female. DNA tests conclude traces of the following breeds: Bull Terrier, Boxer, Bullmastiff (Meaning no evidence found of a purebred parent or grandparent.) 55 lbs. Current on all shots, heartworm preventative, premium dog foods, Omega 3 and probiotic supplements for years. Housed now with another (soul mate) dog, a cat, and two children ages 2 & 7. House-trained & Leash-trained: Yes Scratch wandered into our lives 4 yrs ago and really bec
