Kathie Russo Kelleher , owner, breeder, show competitor

I really have a heart for animals, and especially for the rottweiler breed.   After owning several different  breeds, I fell in love with the rottweiler.  I began my journey with them in 1994 as an owner and show competitor.  I trained and showed in both the German venue shows and the AKC show ring.  My goal has always been to stay within the breed standards, produce dogs with balanced temperaments, correct conformation, as well as keeping healthy breeding parents.  I am an ethical breeder, abiding by rottweiler club standards and regulations.
I look forward to speaking with you about your next Rottweiler puppy.   I am happy to answer your questions and offer my experience in your selection.
In this time of ongoing pandemic, I am offering my breeding, owning, and sales experience in the breed to help guide those who are searching to purchase a Rottweiler puppy.   While I will not pass judgment on other  breeders, I will give you an overview of what you should look for, what you should ask about, and what should   be non-negotiable.    Shop wisely!   Your puppy will be part of your family for many years.
