” When we originally got Ranger from the breeder, he was smaller than all his other littermates, but we figured that was because he had a parasite called Coccidia,” says Ranger’s human, Shelby Mayo.”
“In the following weeks we took him home and he was parasite free but later got a parasite named Giardia. At the same time, we also discovered that Ranger had a large infection on his neck. We finally managed to control the infection, and quickly moved on after a few months. We could finally get rid of Giardia.”
Despite the fact that the Ranger is recovering from mental health problems, his skin revealed that he would not grow normally. They brought him back to the vet where the pituitary was with a dwarf.
Ranger has two sisters. Hazel, Labrador, and Jesse, German Shepherd. Although his sisters are older than him, The small Ranger position does not allow him to support them.
