Ranger is a seven-year-old, twenty-two pound male who was taken to a shelter by his family along with several other dogs and cats that were family pets. We donít know if the family could no longer afford to care for their pets or if they didnít have time for them anymore. We do know the family included several children.
Ranger is an adorable boy who is happiest when he can be with you. He loves snuggling and playing with humans, and his tail never stops wagging. Perhaps because he came from a home full of dogs, Ranger felt that he had to establish himself with other dogs in his foster home. Initially he was aggressive toward the resident Griffs, but after a few days he was fine and was cuddling in the dog beds with them.
Ranger will stay in a crate, but he does not like it and will bark. He does better if he is contained in a small area with a baby gate so he has freedom to move around. He is great on a leash, loves to go for walks, and is housetrained. Ranger is extremely smart and can be mischievous if not watched. (He ventured into his foster momís closet to check out all the lovely things she stores in there.)
Rangerís ideal home would be a structured household where his human is in charge and has experience with integrating dogs. We also feel Ranger would be fine as an only dog with lots of human attention.
Ranger is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, micro-chipped, and on heartworm preventative. We ask that he be kept on a high-quality dog food so he can stay in tip-top shape.
Ranger is a wonderful boy for the right home. Could that home be yours?
Ranger is located in the Dallas, TX area.
If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Connie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
