About Ruger Reece the Beagle
In 2014, when he was a year old, 'Reece' was rescued from the horrendous conditions of an Oklahoma puppy mill. In desperate need of veterinary care and a second chance, he was brought to start his new life at the shelter Miranda had opened in the Sooner State. Redemption Ranch provided the perfect environment to help restore Reece's waning spirit just in time for one of the many adoption events Miranda hosted, often with her friend Vicki.
Vicki knew her sister, Heidi, who lived in Austin, had always wanted a Beagle. When she saw Reece she immediately reached out to Vicki, setting in motion a plan to take Reece back to Texas for Thanksgiving, the following week.
It was love at first sight. In time, Reece blossomed into the healthy, social, squirrel-chasing, pecaneating, five-year-old fellow he is today. Along with more love than a dog could ever dream of, Heidi also gave him the sporting new name 'Ruger-Reece' - and, needless to say, everyone has had a lot to be grateful for since that Thanksgiving Day.
"A proud parent of eight rescue 'children', I've always encouraged people to adopt, not shop. Rescue dogs are something special - they just know you've saved their lives. Born-and-raised in Texas by parents who were always bringing home strays, I come by it honest. That's why my mom, Bev, and I founded Mutt Nation in 2009. Together, we work to support and inspire the adoption of shelter pets."
