A Sedona Shepherd Sanctuary Dog
This is a courtesy cross post Sedona Shepherd Sanctuary. THIS IS NOT A GSRNJ DOG. All questions regarding this dog should be directed to Sedona Shepherd Sanctuary.
Johnson arrived at Philadelphia ACCT in decrepit shape. He was scared and shutdown, not wanting to interact with anyone. Most of the fur on his back and hips was gone. His ears were full of gunk and stinky, his nails were long and he had sores on both shoulders and elbows. Thanks to Char-Wills GSD Rescue, Johnson had a place to decompress before coming to Sedona Shepherd in late August.
He has been with our program a short time and already his personality is starting to shine. He gives the standard shepherd pushing of his muzzle on your arm to get attention. Johnson is been easy to handle, allowing us to take him out for walks and work on gently brushing him and massaging his shoulders and back. We take him on walks with other dogs and after an initial bark, settles down and keeps moving on.
Sedona Shepherd is still getting to know Johnson better, and he is set for a full medical evaluation at Fanwood Animal Hospital in the coming week. He still has ear infections that will continue to need to be addressed. He has the remnants of demodectic mange (non-spreadable) and some other skin allergies. Johnson was neutered by Char-Wills vet and put on a course of anti-biotics.
We estimated Johnson to be about 7-8 years old. He enjoys his walks, but probably has not had a lot of exercise in the past year so he is building up his strength. We do not know for sure how he would be living with other animals at this time. If you would like to help with his medical care you can donate on PayPal or by check and just mention the donation is for Johnson.
