This is what I found on PEOPLE.COM:
Ranger, a German shepherd, may look like a puppy, but he’s actually two years old!
The pooch, owned by Phoenix-based Shelby Mayo, has a genetic condition called pituitary dwarfism, which has caused his permanently small stature.
The condition can appear in German shepherds as a result of “autosomal recessive inheritance” — or recessive gene inheritance, according to Claudia E. Reusch and her chapter in Canine and Feline Endocrinology.
Ranger has his own Instagram page with 72K followers.
Ranger’s owner thought he was the runt of the litter, she didn’t realize he would stay this small https://t.co/rubSss4nfF
