Philip Gonzalez and Ginny

Ginny was a dog that had saved the hundreds of homeless cats. She was found in an abandoned house. Ginny was locked in a closet with her three puppies with no food or water for about a week. Fortunately, they were rescued.
In 1990, as a result of an accident at work, Philip Gonzalez became disabled. The man was depressed and his neighbor, Sheila Harris, persuaded him to adopt a dog to lift his spirits. They went to shelter together. Philip wanted a big dog – a Doberman or Rottweiler. But at that time there were no big dogs there. A shelter worker offered to look at a Schnauzer/Siberian-Husky mix.
