Ranger is a very sweet 60-pound Rottweiler-Hound mix who loves people and loves to give kisses.
He is 3 ½ year old who adores attention and the company of his people. He is a happy, enthusiastic guy who is ready to join in on all kinds of fun and adventure. He loves to walk, explore, and play in water. He walks great on a leash and is a champ on car rides. He is crate-trained and housebroken. His hound tendencies become obvious when he puts his nose to the ground to follow a scent, or barks with a throaty hound-like bark when something interesting captures his attention.
Ranger’s manners are a bit rough around the edges, as he has lived outside a good portion of his life. He would do wonderfully with somebody who is willing to work on basic training skills and be patient with introducing him to house visitors. From our limited experience, he seems to do well with older kids, but we don’t recommend him to a home with younger children. Ranger has given mixed signals with other dogs and it is not recommended that he go into a home with other dogs.
Ranger really craves companionship. He has a Velcro-dog personality and would undoubtedly be a loyal and trusted best friend. If you are looking for an interactive dog who would thrive with your active lifestyle, a fun challenge to teach some basic dog manners to, and a canine bestie that can snuggle with the best of ‘em, then Ranger is your guy!
Great news that a generous sponsor has already paid for Ranger’s adoption fee!! You can learn more about him and/or schedule a meet-and-greet by contacting Stephanie at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (717)232-1644.
