DENTON (CBSDFW.COM) – Animal shelter volunteers in Denton have rescued a neglected 14-year-old poodle and are hoping to soon give her a new life.

Ginger was rescued from a hoarding situation in Denton when her owner decided to give her up in hoping someone would provide a better home.

“Her hair was matted so badly that it was matted into her mouth,” said Stacy Smith with the Humane Society of Flower Mound. “There’s still hair that we’re not able to get out of her teeth until we’re able to put her under anesthesia.”

Smith says doctors have treated Ginger for dehydration, though other health concerns remain according to the shelter Facebook page.

“She has a heart murmur and is running a fever–no surprise she has an infection going on so she got a shot and we’ll run bloodwork tomorrow when she is rehydrated a bit.”

Ginger has so far eaten a big meal of specially prepared food and is resting comfortably. People can follow Ginger’s progress at #gingerthepoodle on twitter.
