Adopted a 6 month old today

I adopted a 6 month old GSD today. She is a pure bred, apparently an 80 year old couple abought her and then kept her outside and never paid any attention to her.

Here is the breeder
Randy Rankin

Sire Nitro Mercury Lewis
DN19283501 (12-10)

Dam Holly Von Vissering
DN23287104 (12-10)

I tried looking up the dogs but nothing came up, could someone tell me if she is bred well. It doesn't matter to me, I am more concerned about hips etc... I was told the owners paid over 1000 for her, but I don't think that means anything.

Anyway she is very sweet and loving dog. Makes me feel good to rescue a her. Our family loves her and will give her a good home. She spent her first day with us celebrating our 3 year olds b-day and she had a great time.

Neither parents are in the PDB. Surprised a breeder would sell to an 80 yr old couple(I know, flame me for that statement
She is a cutie, looks like she is breathing a sigh of relief in her new home!!

Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it, pee on it and walk away.

The girls named her Princess.

I tried to get a good pic of her, maybe I will try tommorow. She seems big for 6 month old female, even though she is a very thin, her front legs are thick and her paws are huge.

She is a very sweet girl and she follows me and the girls all over. Only one problem. The couple kept her locked outside the house and I brought her home and she pooped 4 times in each room in our house. I am guessing she is not house broken, even though one person told me she was, and another said they didn't think so. Can anyone tell me how to train her, I am worried because she is 6 months old and with young puppies it's much easier.

The people I adopted her from drove all the way up from Paris Texas with other resuce dogs. I asked why they would drive up to Colorado to adopt her. They told me they wouldn't adopt in their area because that's where all the resuce dogs come from.


Anway, does anyone know what are those numbers under the sire and dams name? I thought that meant they were registered.

Princess is a totally cool name for a GSD. Good luck with the pottie training.
