Sorry I am just getting back to this...I asked the question of ADD. She is so easily distracted and very hyper. If you throw a stick she will run and get it but drops it quickly and will look for another, she cannot seem to complete a task given to her. Also she is in continuous motion, she slows down to eat but she will sleep for ten hours at a time. When she is awake she is pacing..she is such a sweet shepherd, she is good with kids, adults and other dogs. I have never seen any aggression toward people or dogs.

Your dog is acting out her instincts. Shepherds are a working breed. She wants to work. She probably would be better as a police dog, herding from dog, search and rescue dog, etc. She is a very high energy level dog. If you keep her, she needs at least 1 hour of constant running. If there is a jogger in the family allow her to run with them. This will burn off some of her energy. This should be done at least twice a day.
