Cedar is a female GSD, probably closer to 10 years old who came to Northstar from a shelter where she was surrendered because her former owner was moving and could not afford to move and provide needed medical care for her. She gets along great with her foster brother, and other dogs with proper introduction. She hasn’t been tested with cats, but her previous owner reported she was afraid of them.
Cedar came to NorthStar with several medical issues that we’ve been working to clear up. She arrived with a severe ear infection in both ears, which has been cleared up. She is on medication for a skin infection that is clearing up. The most immediate concern we had upon her arrive was an active anal fistula which now nearly healed with medication and an on-going good diet. Like many seniors, she’s got a bit of arthritis in her legs and can be a bit wobbly in her hind end after exercising.
With all that said, she’s a very laid back lady who loves nothing more than lounging around the house, being with her people. She loves playing ball, especially with kids! Shes usually good for a couple rounds of fetch, but then needs a break from the action.
Her previous owners did not crate Cedar, and quiet frankly, there’s no need to, as she minds her own business when she’s left alone in the house. She rides nicely in the car, and likes sticking her head out the window to catch the breeze. Cedar goes up and down stairs well, but becomes unsteady with her back legs if she goes down the stairs too fast, thus we would recommend carpeted stairs.
