    Did Ranger get lost in Dunn, NC during the Lumber River HT last year? I remember being at the Jameson Inn last year and hearing about a young dog that broke while airing and getting hit in the road and then running off. If this is the same dog, glad to know there is a Happy Ending to this tragic accident.

    Yes, Hes the one. He may have had a tough month or so, but if you could see him on our couch right now, you would agree hes got it made now

    I think you will be surprised that with a good solid training program and lots of love he will make an excellant HT dog and companion. You are already off to a good start. Good luck.

    John Hahn (Western Kansas) made a relatively short, but successful FT career by turning washouts into FC's. Now retired, he's a very smart guy, and was an especially good dog man.

    There are a lot of people that are familiar with Ranger's story, not sure how many know the happy ending. You should bring him to a HT this spring and let us know on this board, I'd like to meet the fella and his new family...Congrats on the opportunity of giving a nice dog a second chance...
