German Shepherd puppies are crazy cute, which is why Ranger, a dwarf German Shepherd who will always look like a puppy, is for sure the most adorable dog I've ever seen in my life (apologies to my dog brother, who luckily can't read). Usually a German Shepherd's early growth is rapid, and before you can blink, they're huge — but not Ranger. The pup, who has his own Instagram account with an impressive 113,000 followers and counting, has big paws but a small to medium-size body as a result of pituitary dwarfism — which is associated with a growth hormone deficiency — unlike a typical full-grown German Shepherd.
Although Ranger is usually posing for his followers alone, he also takes great photos with his younger siblings, a German Shepherd named Jessie and a Labrador Retriever named Hazel. See some of his sweetest photos ahead; he's so cute I could cry.
