Meet Rango! (non GSD with a GSD sister)
I want to share my new buddy, Rango! He is a Australian cattledog and is as cute as a button! My partner and I have been causally looking for a second dog for some time now, but things have never quite worked out for us, such as when we would inquired about a dog, something would prevent us from adopting them ( in process of be adopted already, or would have issues we wouldn't be able to handle at this moment etc.). Long story short, we went on a vacation to the east side of Oregon, and on a whim, walked through the animal shelter. Well, we saw Chaz, as he was called there, and knew we had to take him home. He is goofy and sweet, and extremely friendly. A HUGE selling point for us was when we did the meet and greet with Vega, who is not the biggest fan of other dogs, they were instantly best friends. He follows her around the house, they love to play together, the whole nine yards. We cut our vacation short so we could have him be in a home environment and enjoy him more!
We don't know much about Rango, all the shelter knew was they he was chained up as a yard dog for most of his life, he as absolutely no leash manners or OB skills, and hasn't been fixed. But he is housebroken! YAY! He has a neutering appt later this week and OB classes start next month, so we will work on what we can until then. Lastly, he has NO IDEA what to do with the cat. I think Rango thinks the kitty is some sort of realllllly little puppy, because he keeps trying to play with her. So for now, they are being kept separated until he can control himself a bit more and the cat stops trying to claw his face.
Anywhoooo, we are so in love! Even though he needs some work, he is the best dog for us and for Vega.
I'm hoping the photos I attached work!
