Hello, my name is Ranger. My animal id is #7963. I am a desexed male brown brindle dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 1 months 3 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 01-Nov-2017.
Ranger is at risk for behavioral reasons. He is dog reactive, especially whilst on leash. Ranger is sociable with people and easy to manage on lead. He does not presently have any medical concerns.
