Adopted a MWD and am looking for insight on a few things
I recently adopted a 4 year old MWD. She has her veterinary paperwork but nothing in that indicates her lineage or where ahe ultimately came from. My understanding from net searches is that they procure dogs of czech/dutch background from holland as well as from a breeding program within the states. Was wondering if something ne with direct knowledge can confirm that. The dog i have is a dark sable with red sable on the back of her head and has unique black toes which i havent seen in sables before. So it made me curious of her lineage.
Also i did not receive any training records so i was wondering what obedience training she might have had if any because it seems like i am teachibg her commands for the first time. Might be in a different language but ive tried german, czech, and dutch. At least my best pronunciation of them. My understanding is she was an explosive detection dog with one deployment before being retired to the Tx dps where she could not make the transition to narcotics.
