  • Weight: 70 lbs

  • House trained: Yes!

  • Good with other dogs: Yes, ideally, a playful, spayed female pup

The Deets on This Dynamic Dude

Ranger is a smart, energetic pup who craves adventure. He'd love a home with a fenced-in yard where he can zoom around and explore. Think runs in the park, hikes in the woods, or even agility training – this guy thrives on mental and physical stimulation. But he isn't non-stop. He plays hard and then sleeps hard. He's a big fan of long afternoon naps and will happily settle in for the night on the couch or his favorite dog bed and start sawing logs.

An Important Note About Ranger

He has very typical GSD and ACD tendencies: he likes predictability, is wary of strangers, vocalizes at anything "weird," and likes to run in circles around his dog friends from time to time. With that also comes a strong love of his human and dog family members.

He's on some medication and supplements to help with his anxiety, and they genuinely make a difference. He's happy, playful, and full of life – not a spaced-out zombie!

Steph Wants to Help Ranger Find His Perfect Match

Steph is incredibly proud of Ranger's progress and is dedicated to making his transition to his forever home as smooth as possible. She has a system figured out for him meeting new humans he'll be spending time with — your family will have Steph's support as a trainer and his foster mom for the transition as your new family member — and she's happy to teach this system to you.

Is Ranger Right for You?

Here's what you'll need to be an ideal match for this fantastic dog:

  • House with a fenced yard: This guy needs room to stretch his legs!

  • No young children: Ranger needs a calm, adult-only environment.

  • Experience with positive reinforcement training: Reward-based training is a must!

  • Bonus points: Experience with German Shepherds or Australian Cattle Dogs is a plus!
