Ranger is a pure German Shepherd with a size of a pup. In fact, he is 2 years old.
This pet has a rare genetic condition. Because of the “pituitary dwarfism,” he is smaller than the average German Shepherd.
At first, the humans of Ranger didn’t know that he had such a mutation. When they adopted the dog, they thought the Ranger has a parasite called Coccidia.
The doggie was treated for the parasite but he never grew up in size. The vet actually doubted if the dog had pituitary dwarfism but the owners didn’t believe in that opinion because that’s a very rare genetic condition.
Ranger had no appetite and a loss of hair. A follower of the pup’s owner on Instagram told him that the dog might suffer pituitary dwarfism. He also had a German Shepherd with the same problem.
The reveal made the owners of the pup take him to the vet. It was proved that the dog actually had the rare mutation.
Despite his genetic condition, Ranger is a very happy and joyous dog. He adores messing around and playing with other pups.
It’s obvious that he won’t live as long as the other dogs but we are sure that he is already happy surrounded by caring people!
