Facts about Ripley

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)

  • ID#: 10790143-6780

When Ripley first came to Sedona, she was underweight, had worms, crusty fur, dermatitis, an ear infection and a stiff gait. With good food and proper nutrition she gained 15 pounds, was able to walk 2 miles, and the dermatitis had cleared up. Ripley was on her way to better health when we found a large growth above her shoulder.

The mass was firm but movable and was diagnosed as Liposarcoma, which are malignant tumors of the fatty tissue. The mass that was impinging her left shoulder, which was causing lameness and appeared to be growing quickly. After confirming the cancer had not spread, she had surgery, thanks to the Dr. Ross and the great staff at Crown Veterinary Specialists.

Thanks to a partial grant we were able to provide her surgery. However, we still need to raise an additional $1,800 to cover her surgery and care.  We have set up a You Caring account to help with Ripley’s medical costs.  Ripley is now recovering in her foster home.  Her tail is always wagging when meeting new people and she will quickly snuggle up against a new friend. Ripley is also very easy going around other dogs, so she would do great in a dog friendly neighborhood.

About Sedona Shepherd Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

Sedona Shepherd Sanctuary specializes in helping adult and senior German Shepherds and mixes find their forever home. Sadly, many older dogs are dumped in shelters and most often are the first to be euthanized to create room for younger, supposedly more adoptable dogs.

Our mission is to find loving homes who realize the special nature, love and enjoyment these dogs can bring to a household.

We work with owners who because of circumstances beyond their control need to find a home for their dog. We also work with many shelters and rescue organizations in the Northeast.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fee is:

Ages 4 to 7: $250

Ages 7 and older $125

For dogs older than 10 or with medical issues we will waive the adoption fee. This is done on a case by case situation.

We do not adopt puppies. If you are interested in adopting a dog under 4 years old there are a number of respectable German Shepherd Rescues in the New Jersey metropolitan area that can accommodate you, including Shepherd's Hope Rescue and Garden State German Shepherd Rescue.
