Thank you for this very generous grant and donation of 30 Kong toys, valued at $419.70, awarded to Big Dog Ranch Rescue. Our dogs are having a wonderful time playing with these Kong toys! Caring donations like yours makes all the difference to our precious pups as they wait for their forever homes.

Our dogs are excited to play with their Kong toys. Pictured is Oscar. From his profile: “Oscar is a great dog and very loyal to his family. He is a purebred Weimaraner. He is well-trained with all basic commands and walks on the lead well. His ideal home would be with a Weim-experienced owner who has a back yard so he can run and play. He is a homebody type of dog who loves to stay home and play with his family. He could live with kids but should be the only dog in the home. He will need an owner who is content with a dog that isn’t going to go on social outings and having lots of people come and go. His previous owner had to surrender him due to unforeseen circumstances.

“Oscar previously lived in a home with young kids and was fantastic with them. He is a guard dog and will become very protective of the family and home. He is the perfect dog if you are looking for home security for your family. Please note, you will need to be able to put him in a separate area when guests come over until his protectiveness can be overcome. If Oscar sounds like the Weimaraner you are looking for and you understand the breed, please contact the ranch for a meet-and-greet! He is such a loving dog who is looking for his forever home! If you are interested in adopting Oscar, please fill out the adoption form online or contact Big Dog Ranch Rescue (561) 791-6465 or (561) 309-3311 or email: [email protected]
