This puppy named Ranger has won the hearts of thousands of people because of his adorable puppyish appearance caused by illness.
For some people, the most adorable thing they can see is a small animal with a lot of hair, such as cats, dogs, and rabbits. That is why the story of this German shepherd who suffers from dwarfism has captivated everyone’s heart.
Ranger is 2 years old, and is destined to have the appearance of a puppy for the rest of his life due to the strange condition known as pituitary dwarfism.
Ranger’s mother, Shelby Mayo, explained that when they adopted him he was the smallest of the litter, but they thought it was due to a parasite called Coccidia. Weeks later, after receiving the necessary care, they realized that he no longer had this parasite, but another called Giardia, and that he also had a neck infection, according to Bored Panda.
