She’s being called the “El Chapo of Dogs” after an incredible escape from the Apple Valley Animal Shelter on Saturday.

Two year old Ginger, a German shepherd, was surrendered to the shelter last Saturday when her homeless owner could no longer care for her. “Her previous owner didn’t want her to live out of a vehicle,” Gina Whiteside told “It was a very difficult thing for him.”

However, Ginger had other plans.

Just a few hours after being left at the shelter, she managed to jump over and out the top of her 6-foot tall kennel, through the shelter, past three closed doors, and out the front door, all before shelter workers even realized she was gone.

Three days later, Ginger was found just a few blocks away from her former home where she most likely went looking for her previous owner. Today, she’s back at the shelter, in a much more secure kennel.

Since her story was told, dozens of people have contacted the shelter in hopes of adopting Ginger. There’s no doubt this deserving girl will find a wonderful, permanent home.
