Multiple Best In Show Winning



Stella 5years Freestack



Born: 19 September 2007

We were very happy to welcome the gorgeous Stella into our team as a bubbly six-month-old puppy in 2008. Although initially intended only to stay with us for a weekend or two to 'show her the ropes,' she very quickly became a regular and important part of our family! During her show career she lived with us at home, and kept us very much entertained with her games and most loving personality, only returning to the Rustufarion HQ to attend to maternal duties and to relax during her retirement. She definitely proves that good things do come in smaller packages!  Stella is now retired from the show ring.
