On a Project Fetch transfer, our program to relocate cats & dogs into our care from crowded shelters and rescue groups throughout New Mexico, our Team met a high-energy Australian Cattle dog named Krieger. Krieger’s behavior — jumping, spinning, and barking nonstop — had made it difficult for the rural shelter to place him in a loving home. We decided to bring Krieger back to Animal Humane so our talented behaviorists could help him become a well-behaved family member.

Once Krieger arrived, our Animal Care and Behavior Teams quickly realized he was the kind of dog who needed a job to be happy. Renaming him Ranger, our staff and volunteers spent months tirelessly teaching him obedience cues and showering him with the same love and attention we give all pets in our care. While Ranger remained an exuberant and playful pup, he also gained the social skills and impulse control he needed to find a new family.

Ten months into Ranger’s stay, Dustin arrived at Animal Humane looking for a dog who could accompany him on the horseback riding excursions he leads. When he asked to see Ranger, we knew the match was perfect. Dustin and Ranger not only became family that day — they became partners as well. Ranger now had a job, riding beside his dad on the trail every day! Ranger’s success, like so many others, was the result of the love you give with each and every donation.
