Meet Ranger!


My name is Ranger and I am a red rough neutered Brussels Griffon about 5 or 6 years old and I am a bit overweight at 13 pounds. My past is a bit of a mystery. I remember living in crowded place in Arkansas where I got to breed a lot of girl Griffons. When that place was shut down all us dogs were taken away. I went to live with a nice lady who I really loved but she became too ill to care for me. I then was moved to Houston but due to my new owners heavy work schedule, I had to spend too many hours in a small crate. I was not happy.

My foster mom says I have a very annoying habit of "air-licking" and thinks it is a nervous habit. I told her I have been smacked around and she promised that wouldn't happen any more. In spite of my history I really love and trust people just as long as they don't have anything like sticks or brooms in their hands and they don't yell at me. I close my eyes and wince if anyone raises a hand because I think I will be smacked again. Mom has been trying to take my picture but I am afraid to look at her with that thing that flashes.

I am trying hard to be house trained and use the doggy door all by myself. I am doing a great job but I still don't think she trusts me. Mom makes me stay in the room with her and I am not allowed out of her sight. My most favorite thing to do is sit on her lap. I am very very affectionate and need lots of love.

I am looking for a very loving forever home where I will not be alone anymore.

If you are interested in adopting Ranger, please complete an adoption application. For more information contact Margie. Ranger is in Houston, Texas.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
