Prancer and his brother, Dancer, were dumped on the Gabbs ranch as puppies many years ago on Christmas Eve. Prancer lived most of his life on the ranch surrounded by other dogs, but with little contact with human beings. He was at the ranch when the rains came in January and the runs were flooded. Prancer left the ranch a few days before the big rescue.

He was one of the last four dogs to be taken to the Yerington Animal Shelter. When he was brought out of Gabbs, Prancer’s long coat had to be shaved to remove the mats and mud. Even though it was still winter, Prancer was jazzed about his new do. Now his coat has now grown back long, silky and shiny.

Prancer is a Retriever/Border Collie mix. The Border Collie in him tells him to bark at all things strange (including people) to keep them away. You have to put some effort into getting to know Prancer (and lots of treats). But once he gets to know you, Prancer is a love and will dance in place when you approach. Prancer gets along with most other dogs. He is leash trained and loves to go for long walks, both on and off lead. Prancer is about 6 years old. He is neutered and up to date on his shots. Prancer is still waiting at Safe Haven Kennel for that one person who will give him the home he has waited for so long.
