“Ginkgo is mutt from the Kent Animal Shelter in Riverhead, Long Island.
I am going to circumnavigate on a sailboat and I will need protection, as well as a companion.
She will be more of an alert dog, than a protector.
I knew I needed a small dog because I will be on a small boat and Ginkgo was the only small dog at the shelter.
I’ve had her for four years.”
