Hank is a new arrival at Wayward Ranch! He is a gorgeous 2 year old hound mix (DNA test pending!) with long legs and a heart of gold. He came to us as an owner surrender when his owner realized he was not well suited for city life in Manhattan. This hound dog needs to be in the country, somewhere he can run and play and bay to his heart's content!

Hank loves dogs of all sizes and does great with children. We think he could potentially live with cats as well. Fill out an application for him today!

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.

With all she has been through, Brooklyn dreams of a forever family willing to take the time to get to know her on her terms.

Big Bertha had a tough life before coming to our rescue. We don't know exactly what she experienced but what we do know is she was found tied to a fence in 95 degree weather without shade or water. She was missing fur and had heat stroke. Luckily someone found her and brought her to the MACC animal shelter where she stayed until we took her in.

Bertha is a big, beautiful mastiff mix who loves to be loved! Like many mastiffs she is shy with strangers, but with a gentle voice and some patience you will have a friend for life!

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!
