Ranger II, 12-095Animal Type: Dog
Pet's Story / Bio
RANGER came to CARE from the Malvern animal shelter. He graduated from the Paws in Prison program at the Tucker Unit , where he received obedience training, and was adopted shortly thereafter. Ranger and his new family immediately set out on a road trip adventure, and have thoughtfully updated CARE:
"I thought I would send you a few pictures of Ranger.
In the past 4 days he has been introduced to 9 different dogs and 4 cats. He didn't get along with 2 of the dogs, but I think it was because those two dogs are hard to get along with. He traveled 1,000 miles and only threw up once. He traveled very well for just starting a new diet. He's really starting to come out of his shell. He barked for the first time on Sunday. He only barked once, but it was because his ball was out of reach. I'm glad to see his priorities are straight.Ranger is a great dog. I'm glad to have such a great dog. He did very well with kids and adults. Ranger seems to recognize when he needs to gentle and when he can be a little more rough. I however need to recognize when he is getting too worked up. Especially since he is dealing with a new diet, getting over prison food, and leaning out. I think he can get a little overworked and get sick. But he is just so much fun to play with and be with. I'm hoping I can get him around my uncles Australian Shepherd/Brittany mix which has about the same demeanor and same size as Ranger. It think they would have a lots of fun together.
Ranger doesn't seem to like playing with dogs larger than him, but he kept trying to play with my mother's Shih-Tzus and he was gentle with them. They kept trying to play with him too. I think Shih Tzus forget how small they are.
Thank you for this opportunity to add Ranger to our family."
GOOD BOY, Ranger!
And, thank you to Ranger's new familiy for adopting him, and offering him a second chance and a happy new life! [07-20-12]
