So I've been looking for a GSD for my dad, and haven't had much luck finding the perfect match...untill today. We have a gentleman that feeds some strays near his home, he came into the store today to let us know that he had found a female GSD (purebred) and needed someone to pick her up because the other dogs were picking on her. She had a collar and a tag, so all I had to do was make some calls. I picked her up and of course she was pretty battered from the other dogs, she had been bitten in the nose and was bleeding. So I brought her home, cleaned her up some and caged her. After 13 calls to different vets I broke down and called the last vet (which I dislike very much) As soon as they ran the tag # they knew the dog and gave me the number of her parents. This girls was absolutely beautiful! Everything in a GSD that I have been looking for and more! So when her daddy came to pick her up I learned that I had a Dunlap police dog in my house :) Instead of asking for a reward; which he offered, I made a deal that he would call his breeder and put a good word in for me......just got off the phone with the breeder and I'm VERY impressed! They don't have any breedings scheduled untill this spring, so it will be a while, but I think the pups will be worth the wait.
I didn't get a picture, I didn't have her long enough to borrow my MIL's camers :( But I know where she lives and I can stop by to see her anytime. We also have a friend in the police department now, which is awsome for us because if we need an officer to acompany us on a seizure I have a home number for one lol. When I first saw her I knew she wasn't from American lines, she was just too big and straight in the back, and she naturally stacked!
I think her training had a lot to do with her being beaten up lol, when the other dogs would approach her, she would just relax and almost submit to them. The irony is that she is fully trained as a police drug dog, she had one full day of work before the county pulled the funding for the program!
In a way I didn't want anyone to claim her lol, but I did give her daddy a little lecture about reporting her missing....even if she usually returns home after some time. I had called all the vets in our area and none had a GSD reported missing. The last vet I called I actually wasn't going to call because we have issues with him. Had I of skipped calling that vet I might not of ever found where she lived.
Glad she made it back home! I can't believe the vet just gave you the owner’s numbers. There's a law kind of like HIPPA with people doctors that they can't give out any personal information on a client or dog with out the owners consent.
