Mo Chara Animal Rescue - Roving Ranger & Lovely Waffle

Ranger and Waffle

The Roving Ranger

Ranger is a gorgeous lurcher boy who came to us from North Tipperary Pound. He was found straying in an awful state – he was a bag of bones and had sores on his tail and legs.

Ranger was microchipped to a home in Belfast but the contact details were out of date – worried that he was somebody’s beloved boy; we did some detective work and finally managed to track down his registered owners. Sadly, the news wasn’t good for our roving Ranger – they had sold him as a puppy, they did not know (or care) where he went and no, they did not want him back. Therefore, Ranger became a member of the Mo Chara Clan and we have nursed this sweet boy back to good health – his sores have healed and he has gained weight steadily.

Ranger is a typical lurcher – he loves a dash around followed by a long snooze in a cozy bed. He is a boy of simple needs – if he is warm and fed then he is exceptionally happy. Ranger is a strong boy so would be best suited to a home with no little kids under five to avoid accidental knockdowns! He has been very well behaved with the other dogs at the rescue but he is not a fan of cats. Ranger is vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. He would make the perfect companion in a relaxed home.

A Lovely Waffle

Waffle is a handsome bichon frise mixbreed, he is about the size of a cocker spaniel. Waffle came to us from South Tipperary Pound. Waffle adores people and loves a fuss! He can be a little jealous of other dogs stealing the limelight and while we think that he could settle in a home with other dogs with careful introduction, Waffle would love to be an only dog! Waffle is a playful little fella and he loves to romp around with kids.

Waffle has a fluffy, wavy white coat which will require regular maintenance to keep it in good condition – he will need a thorough brushing a few times a week and a trip to the groomer for clipping every 8-10 weeks. Waffle is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and very ready to find his forever family!
