We had her, then "lost" her when my EX (Leland's father) just let her go while I was in the hospital from a car wreck in 1994. He thought I wouldn't find her...he didn't like my German Shepherds or Roper..or the horses, for that matter.
NEVER TRUST ANYONE THAT DOESN'T LIKE ANIMALS.
When I finally got her back, CARE had "fixed" her for me (without trying to find the owner...fixed her then advertised that they had her), I "chewed several people out, including the vet who just takes these dogs in on "their say so" . Needless to say, she became just a pet, although we did participate in Earthdog competition in Durham for several years.
