German Shepherd Mia’s Story
I work at a large Metropolitan Police Dept, it was Super Bowl Sunday, February 7th, 2010 A young lady called the station, stated I have a 12 week old full blooded German shepherd puppy with AKC papers, her name is Mia and I can’t keep her.
She stated she just got her from a breeder a week ago. I paid $400.00 for her, I got her a cage, food, and her accessories, I don’t want any money for her. I have 4 kids and the youngest one in diapers.
Why did you get a puppy? Because my kids wanted one and my aunt had a shepherd, she was a great dog, so I looked for a female German Shepherd puppy. I ask why she called the police dept, her response was, because they have German Shepherds.
She is smart, I was hoping the police dept would keep her, she would make a good “police dog”. I can understand that logic, but our shepherds come from Europe and they are 2 years old males.
I told the lady we just put our Lab, Ebony down, she was 12 1/2 yrs old. (I realized when I received this call, I just typed Ebony's name in my computer). I felt that this must be a sign from God, and maybe this is meant to be.
The lady stated I can send her picture to you, I reply, can you bring her here to the station, she said, I'll be there in 20 minutes. My coworkers were so excited to see Mia. She needed a home and my husband and I can give her a wonderful life, she just turned 1 yr old,she is healthy and happy. We love her and she loves us too!
