A strange twist of events took place in the past week. This dog is now in my mother's home and will be there permanently. The adoption through VGSR fell through and we had no other foster or transport options for her in the short term. So, now that she has gone to my mother's home as a house dog, she has been determined to be:
obedience trained in both German and English
enjoys cats and sleeps with one of my mother's house cats
interested in livestock - ? herding training possible ?
loves to ride in a car
She is finally home and, while we wish that we knew her story prior to winding up in the local shelter, I don't think that we will ever know. Someone invested a lot of time, money and energy in this dog and why she was a stray that was never claimed, we will just not know.
