Born November 7, 2016
Zena was born on a sheep farm in Blossom, Texas. She was the only white/biscuit puppy in her litter. She has changed coat colors over the years. She drops her coat twice a year and everytime it comes back a little different.
Both of her parents are AKC registered. She comes from an excellent line of livestock guard dogs. I did not purchase her AKC registration paperwork, or breeding rights.
