I technically got her from my dad, but my dad got her from my uncle after my uncle got a bad batch of german shepherds(they had the whole shebang, hip dysplasia, liver failure, sketchy behavior) Her mom is an import from Armenia and her dad is from California. She ended up having just a little too much energy for the time my dad had to spare.
So my uncle imported her mother from Armenia and her dad from California after he had a bad batch of German shepherds, My dad ended up with one after visiting him(both of them have some property, my uncle has a lot and a herd of cattle) I ended up taking her on, at 7 months old, because she had quickly become too much dog for his time. So I took her because I needed a running partner, and had been looking into getting a dog anyway. I had NO idea what I had gotten into, so I started training her like she was a service dog, just to engage her.
