Ranger is a spunky, energetic, fun loving, confident, affectionate and cuddly young boy. He loves to play with dogs of all sizes and is looking for a home with a doggie playmate or two. He loves every human he meets, and enjoys his lap time, basking in the cuddles and kisses! Ranger came to us with some resource guarding issues and his foster is working diligently to teach him proper manners. Foster mom says he responded well to correction and now his resource guarding is a non issue in her home. He's looking for an owner familiar with balanced training methods and who is willing to continue his training in his forever home. He also needs a home with no children under 10 because of his resource guarding past.
There's no way to be sure of Ranger's breed, however, he's a low rider, which makes one think dachshund, and he has long hair (will require grooming every 3-4 months, mostly in sanitary area) that does shed, as well. His gorgeous coat is silky soft. Ranger is crate and house trained in foster home. He has not been tested with cats.
Please note: socializing dogs, especially young dogs, is critical to their development. Puppies need to have positive experiences with new people, places, sounds, dogs on a WEEKLY basis to ensure they do not grow into insecure, fearful or even aggressive adult dogs. Please consider this when adopting during this pandemic. Socialization is currently more difficult, but it isn't any less important, so please be sure you can fulfill this need in a new dog before committing to adopt.
If you are interested in adopting, please complete an adoption application. Because we are still understaffed due to COVID19, we will only be able to email those applicants that are approved to schedule a meet and greet. Thank you in advance for your understanding if you don't hear back from us regarding your application.
