I guess I will never know 100% as I'm not her original owner, I'm not even in the same country she was born in for that matter. I'm in Canada and she was pulled from a shelter in Ohio. Somehow I doubt I will be able to track down her original owner. When they sent her to the shelter they were living in their car.

She is turning out to be a good family dog but she is super hyper. Hopefully whatever she is will mellow out with age.

You also have to consider what's meant when someone uses the term "Dutch Shepherd"--in the police K9/KNPV circles, the name is often used loosely to describe a crossbred dog with working-lines GSD, Malinois and/or actual Dutch Shepherd behind it...dogs bred specifically for utilitarian law enforcement purposes, or for KNPV/Ringsport competition, and not for their looks except as it pertains to their performance abilities (the preferred build is a medium-sized dog, lean and trim in construction, lighter boned and squarer in body than the GSD).  Those dogs actually can go on to be given a performance pedigree,listing them as an HHX (Hollandse Herderhond Cross) by the body that registers purebred Dutch Shepherds, if the dogs earn their KNPV certifications.


Did your female have a tattoo or microchip when she was surrendered to the shelter?

There was no tattoo, they did say she was chipped but when I had her at the vet they couldnt find one.
