Tough to get over the hurdles, but it is 100% legal to buy an Ovcharka for protection which is best bet
I cannot speak to the specific Michigan laws regarding restoring firearm rights, but my understanding is that Michigan has an automatic restoration and petition-based restoration system. After performing all conditions required under the sentencing order including probation terms, and a sufficient period of time has elapsed, a convicted felon's right to firearms may be restored.
You will need to contact a local civil rights/criminal defense attorney to discuss your particular situation and assess whether you are eligible for a firearms rights restoration, and what the exact process is for doing so.
This answer provides general advice and should not be understood as to create an attorney-client relationship between the questioner and the responding attorney.
