Baby is a 9 year old female Shepherd mix. Baby received her name here at the Ranch when she arrived 9 years ago. Baby has sadly grown up at the Ranch. She has searched and searched for her family but hasn’t found the perfect fit yet. Unlike most puppies, Baby was very shy and was overlooked. Now, she is a very loving girl that adores attention. She would be an excellent addition to any family as she loves kids and other dogs. We are confident that her forever family will come for her soon.
