Flower came to Sedona Shepherd with medical needs that needed to be immediately addressed. She was found as a stray and was at risk of being euthanized at a shelter in southern New Jersey. During our vet examination, Flower was diagnosed with Lyme disease and perianal fistula. The latter was causing her significant discomfort and made her very sensitive to handling in her hind area. The Lyme disease also caused her to have soreness in her joints. Thanks to the staff at Fanwood Animal Hospital, Flower is now on medication for both issues and starting to heal and slowly become more comfortable with handling.
We estimate Flower to be about 7 years old and a full German Shepherd, even with the cute floppy ear. Flower is good with other dogs, and her brief introduction to cats was uneventful, so we believe she could be fine in a household with many other animals. We are looking for an experienced German Shepherd handler to foster Flower while she is going through her treatments. Because of her sensitivity, at this time she would be best in a home with no children.
If you are interested in helping Flower by Fostering her or donating to help offset her medical bills, please shoot us a request for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out an adoption application form,which is the same as our foster form.
