Ranger has been returned to rescue to find a placement that is a better match for him. He gets along great with other dogs, but does play rough so will need another dog that is also playful. The previous adopters reported that Ranger was protective in his home. They indicated Ranger has been a complete sweetheart with his family. He just moved to a new foster home in Virginia. We will update Ranger’s page once he gets settled in and his foster family learns more about him.

Ranger is small but mighty! Not only does he think he’s a lap boxer – he actually fits! And he has a ton of spunk in his little body. He gets so excited to see people (or when it’s time to eat) that he does the cutest circle dance across the entire room. Ranger gets along well with his two foster siblings – he doesn’t pay much attention to them. He has done well meeting new people and likes to make friends. Ranger still gets a bit scared by a lot of commotion/noise, so he would do best with a calmer canine companion and older children. He would also be happy as an only dog – he is mostly concerned with being with his people!
Ranger is housebroken and crate trained, and we are working on manners. He loves to snuggle on your lap for lots of attention. He is a super sweet boy who will make a wonderful companion!
Ranger is getting comfortable in his foster home. He is a sweet boy and is steadily gaining weight. Ranger would do best with a more easygoing dog companion, as he gets nervous around a lot of activity from other dogs. He is getting along well with both of his foster siblings. What Ranger loves best is being with his people. He also loves his crate and will go in on his own to nap.
Ranger was surrendered to the shelter due to cruelty. He was very thin and was being kept in poor conditions. Ranger did great on his behavior evaluations at the shelter with people and other dogs. He is a sweet boy who is very affectionate and eager to please. Ranger will need to gain some weight before his neuter surgery. He just arrived at his new foster home and is settling in well with both of the other dogs. We will update his page once his foster family gets to know him better.
