Mystery Dog Ranch derived its name from the Indian Legend of the Mystery Dog.

Years and years ago the Indian utilized their canine friends as their means of

transportation. His life and habits quickly changed with the acquisition of the

horse. The Indians of the southwest were the first to obtain the horse. When he

first saw the horse the Indian was frightened. He thought the horse and its rider

were one animal. Some considered it sacred.
