On graduation, she moved to Pennsylvania and attended Temple University where she discovered the ability to work with numbers and problem solving skills. Majoring in statistics and finance she earned a Bachelor of Business Administration graduating with honors. Living in Philadelphia she started her family.

ROTTWEILER In 1931, the Rottweiler, wasplaced into the working group of the, AKC, American Kennel Club. Known for the Rottwiel’s Butcher’s Dog, so titled for the city in Germany, this breed was developed from droving dogs,used to pull supply carts for Roman legions. During the middle ages, the dog was used to pull carts full of meat while escorting the butcher and his money to the bank. Money pouches were tied around the massive necks of the dogs in the hopes of discouraging potential robbers. The Rottweiler is among the oldest breed of herding dogs. In America they are mainly used as guard dogs and police dogs. Because this is an intelligent dog, the Rottie is easily trained. However, due to its power and strength, this dog requires postive training, and will need to know its place within the family dynamic. The Rottie’s markings are natural and rustic. The lips are always black, as well as their coat with brown markings around the mouth, shoulders, paws, and of course, their cute circular eyebrows. Standing at up to 27 inches, the breed can reach a massive 135 lbs. Exceling in all activities, these dogs are bred to work, guard, and please.
