Ranger is a very good and loyal dog. He's very smart--almost too smart sometimes. He loves howling at night, and when the sirens go by, he likes to howl an eerie, long howl. He acts like an overgrown puppy, yet when strangers come visit, he likes to let them know that this is his territory. He loves swimming in the creek behind the house, and chewing on his deer antler collection. Ranger is an avid football player, and loves fetching rocks.
