Rango is a sweet boy that came to us from a Central Valley shelter. He gets along well with other dogs and seems to prefer women to men. He has a longer coat so will require grooming and stunning blue eyes. He is a wonderful boy and will make a great companion for jogging, walking and hanging out. Rango needs a breed experienced owner as he can try to rule the roost with his person. Ongoing positive training will go far with him!For specific information please visit the adoption tab on our website, The adoption fee includes alteration, age appropriate vaccines, worming, flea treatment, microchip, and 30 days of pet insurance.

About Wags and Whiskers Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Time has taught us recycled pets are simply pets with some experience that need to adapt to new and appropriate living situations. Having transported, fostered and adopted shelter pets, we see the reality of overpopulation and misguided expectations. Often these pets are abandoned through no fault of their own. A puppy grows up, people get married or divorced, children are born or go off to college, and, sadly, economic factors are just some of the reasons we have seen for abandonment of a once loved family member. Coming from a home, the environment of a shelter can be shocking, and a shelter assessment faulty. Fear can be misinterpreted. Lack of exercise can cause a dog to display behavior that is inappropriate. Undiagnosed physical conditions can give a false impression of some behaviors. These pets simply need to be brought back into a home environment and practice living skills.
