All Adoptable Dogs

Yahtzee is a new arrival here at Wayward Ranch and boy is he happy to be here with us! This guy never stops wagging his tail or dancing around like the little fox that he is.

Yahtzee came to us extremely underweight and emaciated after being found as a stray in Brooklyn. We don't know if he is a stray dog someone once loved or if he was abused and neglected before being tossed away. Regardless, our job is simple: to fatten him up and find him a family!

Requested Adoption Donation: $250

This adorable pup is Clementine and she has a long journey ahead of her. She came to us off of the euthanasia list at the Brooklyn ACC when she began acting out due to kennel anxiety. Since her arrival she has been very shut down but day by day she comes out a little more to show us her true personality. 

Our hope is in time she will be ready to find a forever home but for now we are just giving her the space and love to decompress and be comfortable. 

Not Yet Available for Adoption

Ozzy is one of our recent arrivals, coming to us in February 2021 after being on our waiting list since November. He was a pet store puppy brought home by a loving family who saw more and more fear aggression develop in him as he grew up. It become more than they could manage so he entered our program. 

Ozzy is not yet ready for adoption, but will be soon! He is a sweet boy who takes time to trust, but once you are in his world, he will love you forever! Stay tuned for more on him!

Not Yet Available for Adoption

Argos is our newest arrival, and he is a sweet senior boy who came to us from the NYC ACC. He was brought there when his owner was diagnosed with cancer and could no longer care for him. After 13 years in a loving home, he misses being a part of a family.

He has a few medical concerns we are addressing, and our hope is that he will soon be available for adoption so he can find a loving home where he can spend his golden years in comfort.

Not Yet Available for Adoption

Found as a stray at 3 weeks old, Bear was adopted by a wonderful family that loved him for 5 years. If he had been any other dog, he would have grown up well socialized, but Bear isn't like other dogs. He has genetic behavioral concerns that the average family simply cannot manage alone. 

When it became too difficult to manage his behavior in the home they reached out to Wayward Ranch and we became his new family. With our management and daily training Bear is able to live a full and happy life with us!

Permanent Sanctuary Resident

Chewy was born at a respected breeding facility and purchased by a loving family with a big yard and plenty of kids to play with. He had the life most dogs in rescue could only dream of. Unfortunately for Chewy and his family, he has some genetic behavioral concerns that made him unsuitable for live in the average home. 

When Chewy first came to us, our hope was that he would be adoptable to a family without young children, but from what we have seen, we feel the most responsible decision would be for him to remain a permanent 

resident here.

Permanent Sanctuary Resident

Brooklyn's life began normally, purchased by a loving family as a puppy. Sadly when her owner died months later, she had nowhere to go and was brought to a vet hospital. Because of her breed and fearful behavior they decided not to rehome her. For the next nine years she lived in a kennel run in the back of the hospital as a blood donor, until she came to Wayward Ranch in 2018.

After living with us for over 2 years we have made the decision to have her remain with us as a permanent sanctuary resident.

Permanent Sanctuary Resident

Hank originally came to us as an owner surrender in 2020 when his owner was no longer able to keep him. He was a solid and friendly boy with all of the humans, children, and dogs he met and was quickly adopted. Unfortunately he was recently returned after new behavioral problems came to light in his adoptive home.

Hank is now in our behavioral program and our hope is that with a strong training baseline he will be ready for adoption to a new family in several months.
