About Lone Ranger

“Oh hey there! My name is Lone Ranger but my foster family calls me Magic! My nicknames include Mag, Magie, Magician, Magical Girl, and Sweet Peach. I’m a very gentle, affectionate, well-behaved, stunning young lady looking for my forever home. I’m house-trained (I ring bells to go outside), crate-trained (I love my crate!), and leash-trained (I’m not a perfect walker yet but I’m learning!). I sleep all night long on my bed and I have the world’s softest fur (seriously!).

As far as my energy goes, I’m on the “high” end of moderately active. I loooooooove my walks but sometimes I still get a bit spooked by sights and sounds that are new for me, and then I pull to go home. My foster mama says it’s alright though, I’m gaining confidence every day!

On that note, it’s important for you to know that although I’ve come a LONG way, I am still working on my confidence with anything “new”. I’m still very much learning about the world and I need a family who will read my cues and go at my pace. Sometimes, my pace is really slow, and I like to lay down and just observe. For this reason, if you have kids they need to be over 10 years old. The little ones are just a bit too much for me right now.

I *love* other dogs once I get to know them, but as you can probably guess, I can be nervous at first meetings. It’s really a combination of nervousness and pure joy. It’s best that introductions to new dogs are slow and controlled, to give me time to warm up and not get overwhelmed. If you already have a dog, I would really, really love that, as long as they are calm and confident so that I feel safe with them and they set a good example for me.  It would be great if they like to play, because once I’m comfortable, I’m VERY playful! Zoom zooooooooom! I turn it on “full throttle” so to speak, I’m super fast and strong! Me and my foster sister spend lots of time chasing each other around the yard and wrestling everyday. I love it and my foster parents would love for me to have a canine companion at my forever home, or at least some dog friends I can play with regularly.

I would live my best life in a home with a big yard where I can spend lots of time outside and run and play my heart out. If you don’t have lots of space for me outside, that’s alright! I still need a fenced yard, and I’ll just need you to make sure I have enough physical and mental activities to keep my brain and body happy.

If you’ve made it this far and you’re thinking “yes, this is the one!” there’s one more thing you should know about me. I went through lots of tests for a few months because I was leaking pee by accident, and the vets found out I have a different bladder than expected. But I’m on a medication to help me hold my pee now and it’s working! It’s really no big deal anymore, I just can’t have as much water as other dogs because  my bladder gets full quicker and I can’t hold it as well.

My foster parents say I am the sweetest, most well-behaved teenager they’ve ever hosted. They love me to pieces and keep telling me my perfect match is coming. Is it you?” – xo, Lone Ranger
