This amazing German Shepherd/Doberman mix was found running freely in a field in Avenal, California. During that particular year, the Avenal shelter only had four adoptions, prompting them to collaborate with other shelters to find loving homes for their dogs. In 2018 he made his way to Woods Humane Society, accompanied by a group of dogs from the same shelter.

Upon his arrival at Woods, he caught the eye of Emily, the current CEO, who immediately fell in love with him. Her husband and her son, Oliver, were on the lookout for a canine companion, so they all went to meet Ranger, along with family dog, Luca. They fostered him while he awaited his neutering, and it didn’t take long for them to decide to make him a permanent part of their family. His name sparked some debate, but after a vote, “Ranger” was chosen. In fact, his full name is “Ranger Danger Moon Dog”, as christened by the creative 5-year-old, Oliver.

Emily affectionately describes Ranger as a solid oafish doofus. He is goofy and derpy but most importantly, he has a loving personality. Ranger adores children, gets along with cats, and even welcomes puppies, making him the perfect foster dad when the occasion arises. When I had the pleasure of meeting Ranger, he was a perfect gentleman and had a curious nature. His most striking feature, not immediately apparent from the front view, is his remarkably long nose, which only adds to his charm and adorableness. Ranger has won the hearts of the entire Woods staff. He was so lucky to get taken to Woods and to have found his amazing forever home there.  Ranger thinks everyone should adopt shelter dogs!
