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. When she arrived she was very shut down but day by day she came out a little more to show us her true personality. 

She is now ready to finally start looking for an adoptive home! She still has rehabilitation ahead of her, but with an experienced and dedicated family we know she will thrive!

Adoption Donation Sponsored

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 finally ready for adoption! 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!

Requeted Adoption Donation: $250

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 been fully medically assessed and aside from a few benign lumps and bumps and him being mostly deaf, he is healthy and ready for adoption!

Requested Adoption Donation: $200

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.
