*** INTAKE DATE – NEW ARRIVAL ***
Big, stunning and simply gorgeous, Ranger is a magnificent boy of over 80 lbs who is simply a show stopper. That he is also the sweetest, most affectionate boy on the planet doesn’t hurt either. You’d be crazy not to want to rush to foster or adopt this amazing boy, who also proved to be a ROCK STAR in Doggy Playgroup. Possibly the most beautiful and big hearted dog we’ve seen in a many a year.
<3 A volunteer writes: Ranger's a born celebrity, the kind of dog who draws a crowd wherever he goes, and one look will tell you why...80-plus pounds of snow white handsomeness, a tail that never stops wagging, and a long, silly tongue with a life of its own...who wouldn't stare in awestruck admiration? A big guy with a big heart and a ton of energy, Ranger is still surprisingly gentle for his size, even when jumping up for a hug that's really just an excuse to get closer to a treat! He does pull hard on leash due to his weight and puppyish enthusiasm, but accepts a harness without complaint, takes care of business promptly once he steps outdoors, and greets passing dogs of all sizes with wonderfully friendly manners. Naturally, he rocked his first time out in playgroup, happily bouncing around and running the yard with a few girlfriends, and I bet he'd be thrilled to accompany his new family to the dog park for even more socializing. Sniffing and exploring from top to bottom is Ranger's first move in any new space, but he's not anxious or whiny and once I regain his attention with a pat, a tap on the shoulder or a little tug of the leash; his ebony eyes are on me and my precious bag of treats in a second--perfect for hand sign training. He may not look like a typical lapdog, but Ranger thrives on affection and leans softly into my legs as I rub his side before melting onto my lap like a big ol' marshmallow once I sit on the floor. His perfect match would be an active, experienced home where quality family time is a priority, and if there happen to be some four-legged family members in the mix, even better! Ranger's full of love and so ready to share it with the world. Come into our Manhattan Care Center and give this superstar-in-training his 'big break' today!
