Rango was rescued through the Australian Cattle Dog Rescue of Minnesota. He was found shot multiple times, starving and with severe mange. Rango healed through the love and care of his volunteers and medical team.  We are so grateful Rango is now able to provide happiness to clients old and young with his loving demeanor.
