Ella, she was purchased as my second performance/show prospect from the same breeder I purchased Jazz from. The breeder, who was very involved in herding, started Ella on sheep, "putting them away" from the time she was about 5 or 6 weeks old. Unfortunately by the time Ella was 12 weeks old, she had developed an OCD in her hock, a life long debilitating injury that left her off and on lame again for the rest of her life. Rather than letting a minor 'hitch in her get-a-long" get her down, Ella lived her life up to her potential, thrilling me with a CDX, an ARC Carting title, and a ton of 'Ella stories' to last me a lifetime, with epic stories! Ella is definitely one of a kind. We are so blessed to still have her hail and hearty at almost 12 years old (as of December 2017) and she still our "Queen of Everything". Ella has been a constant companion to my elderly mother (who lives with us), as well as the Supreme 'puppy raiser'. Ella loves babies, is fair, but FIRM when required, and has definitely been the light of our lives! We feel completely blessed to call Ella ours, and I will be eternally grateful we have been the very lucky ones to call her ours!

Our first and only foray in the breed ring...Ella's conformation wasn't good enough to keep going, but boy did we have fun that day! And she went BOB puppy over another Rottweiler puppy! FUN times!
