Animal ID: 14-10-18-00098Ripley (female)

Rhodesian Ridgeback    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Ripley is extremely anxious animal. She has skin allergies something fierce we can keep it in control with Zyrtec 10mg tablets 2x a day. And medicated baths 2 to 3 times a week. She has ear problems but each vet exam reveals no infection and no ear mites so it is probably skin allergy related. She has a sweet temperment with my cats whom she grew up around. She is scared of men initially due to when our home got broken into and burglars tormented and yelled and hit her when she was about 5 mos old. she will calm down around men pretty fast actually but at first she might fear nip and run away from men. I am reluctant to put her in a ... (Read More)shelter for fear her nippy anxiety personality will have her put down. She is extremely complex as she tries to dominate and thwart every command we give her yet when we have to tend to her hot spots and ears she does not bite or growl at us or the vet either. She loves hot baths in oatmeal as it soothes her itchy skin. She also tolerates walk in shower bathtime. She hates being in the grass outdoors she hates it. She hates sitting on ground without a pillow or blanket. she hates her feet to touched in any way and will yelp sometimes if you make any sudden moves to her paws even though you haven't even trimmed a nail but merely touched her paw. she yelps when she panics if she thinks you are going to hurt her (i guess its trauma from the burglars breaking in) her only abuse was at the hands of the burglars I was hoping by now almost 3 years old she would have rehabilitated and gotten over that. I have done everything I can to rehab her and provide her a safe home. I stay at home and she may be alone only 8 hours broken up here and there a week every week otherwise she is always with me or has her 2 cat buddies to hang out with. One cat she grooms and the cat grooms her back. She is truly a sweet heart BUT I cannot keep this up any longer the vet bills, the constant fearfulness over any loud noise or sudden movement, her nipping at my male friends when they come over, she has exhausted me. I can't fix her, I can't heal her skin, I wasted so much money vet bills, training her, she costed me a fortune to begin with and I am at my wits end. I want her to have a furr ever home but she hates kennels/crates even though she is orginally crate trained. Oh and she hates to get her paws wet, she will try to stand on one foot to go pee/poo rather than get her feet wet. she needs someone who can give her the special needs care to keep her happy. I can't do it any longer and I need to find her a safe home where she will not be abused or used for a dog fight or sold to animal research. I need her to be safe and worst of all now even though I was willing to keep her long term and have dealt with her issues for 3 years now but now my landlord has added ridgebacks to the banned dogs list. So now I ultimately have to get rid of her which is sad but also a tremendous relief. My landlord is very nice and is allowing me time to find a decent home but I ultimately have to get her off of the property. Now I have a adoption fee I know but my logic is anyone will take a free healthy dog and who knows what they really do with these animals since I doubt year to year followups are done. But I can ask a fee just high enough to keep dog fighters girlfriends from picking her up to put in a dog ring to train fighter dogs etc .. I just want whomever to adopt her realize A. she has major emotional and minor health needs that must be addressed ... so she is not a get my kid a dog on a whim or get her for the junk yard and leave her outdoors .. you can have her pet dog bed too. she has all shots updated and also meds i can give you too. I will hang on as long as I can but eventually if nobody will adopt this loveble hot mess of a pooch I will drop her at a shelter cause I won't have a choice my landlord will force my hand and I cannot get my family evicted over this furr baby either. I have 60 days. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rhodesian Ridgeback in Texas

Rhodesian Ridgebacks are very smart and obedient with firm training. Rhodesian Ridgebacks do not like to be teased by children. Ridgebacks need to be thoroughly socialized with other pets and humans, and may be dog aggressive. Ridgebacks can live in an apartment but these dogs are very energetic and need lots of daily exercise. This is an excellent dog to take jogging.
