Ginger Goes For Gold In ‘Nose Of Tralee’ Competition

Posted by



Stacey Wallace and Ginger will be hoping to bring home the ‘Nose of Tralee’ crown to Kerry this year.

THE hopes of the county in this year’s ‘Nose of Tralee 2015’ competition are pinned on a little dog called Ginger from Tralee.

Stacey Wallace’s dog is this year’s Kerry finalist in the second year of the national competition which will see dogs from the 32 counties taking part.

Stacey is hoping that Ginger’s inspirational rescue story will will steal the hearts of both the public and judges for those all important votes.

“Ginger was rescued in 2012 by Animal Help Net Kerry after living in the wild for months and had all the signs of a bad start to life,” said Stacey.

“In March 2013, I adopted her and she became part of our family. She was so scared of everything for the first few months including children, loud noises, going for walks, even being out in the rain scared her. Thankfully though, the Ginger we all know and love is a changed dog now,” she continued.

“She loves going for walks, loves her comfort, loves her food, she doesn’t really understand how to play with toys yet but loves playing with her family. She loves the mornings and never lets anyone sleep in after 7 am. She comes up to the bed letting me know it’s time to get up. The lazy pup is back in bed again by lunch time…. and god forbid you might wake her,” Stacey laughed.


Ginger and her escort Prince will be hoping to bring home the big prize, but they need your votes to help do so.

In true ‘Nose of Tralee’ finalist fashion, Ginger has already been given her own escort in Prince (complete with tuxedo and all!) who will be helping her in any way to win the competition.

“Having Ginger represent County Kerry has been incredible, but to have her win the overall title of the Nose of Tralee would be a dream come true. I have no doubt the people of Kerry will get behind her and vote because she is a deserving winner. She has come on so much from the girl rescued in 2012 and it has been amazing to watch her transform into such a happy, playful dog,” she said.
