Linfert Mastiffs would like to thank Mike and Heather Reid of Caledonia Mastiffs and Carla and Paul French for allowing us to purchase this very special girl. Ellie is from their Elliot and Roxxy breeding. Don and I are very happy to include Ellie in our Mastiff family. We are looking forward to training and showing Ellie and have hopes that she will make a great addition to our breeding program. Ellie has a wonderful old pedigree with some great champions from the past that we hope to continue. We're confident that she will follow in her Parents', Grandparents' and Great Grandparents' footsteps.

What fun Ellie will be going taking her into the showring.
She really enjoys strutting along on the lead, she will began conformation classes soon. Can't wait for her to see all the other dogs and Don teaching her, the steps of being a show dog.
Ellie's first time taking a handling class and she's a " Pro! "
She wagged her tail the whole time she was there!! At 13 weeks old we think she "Hot"!!
Changes from week to week
Ellie 4 months old and her first time in the BIG snow! She enjoyed it so much, she didnt want to come in. She slept like a log that night.. even got some video footage of her playing.. What a funny shot of her running up hill.
Abby was trying to catch a bird that flew into the tree.. "Or maybe she was teaching Ellie how to be a bird dog!"
Ellie's isnt interested in birds... she wants to run!
Ellie playing her own game and Running full speed like a greyhound.
Ellie waiting for Abby to run with her..... she got spooked by the neighbors dog, notice the hackles up on her back.
Ellie wanting to go back and get Abby....
Never mind Abby .. I think mom's got some cookies!!
Ellie is 8 months old now.. she stands 31 inches tall and is getting so elegant and graceful. The photos below were taken June 8, 2010
Ellie attends her first AKC dog show Sept 4th 2010, she won Winner Bitch for her first point. Thank You James E. Noe, for putting up Ellie as your WB over the older bitches.
Sept 5th 2010, Ellie completed her first weekend out... She won Winners Bitch and Best Of Winners, getting 2 points. Thank You so much Mrs. Beth G. Speich.
I'm glad you enjoyed her, as much as she enjoyed being there.
We showed Ellie at a UKC show on 10 / 2 and again on 10 / 3 / 2010, at Clermont County, Milford Ohio. It was Ellie's first UKC show, on the first day Ellie took two Group 1st.
On the 2nd day, Ellie managed to get two 3rd place in Groups. We weren't sure how many points she had earned. I decided to make a call to UKC, to find out about Ellie points and what she earned towards her Championship Title . I was so shocked and upset at the same time, too found out Ellie met all requirements for and had earned her Championship title. We didn't know or get any photos of her with the Judges, to show her as new Champion.
Thank You goes out to all the Judges, that judged Ellie on those two days! Here's the only good photo of Ellie at the UKC show, she turned 1yr old that day.
Ellie's 1st champion title
Ellie showed at another UKC show on November 14, 2010. She was being shown as a New Champion, she competed with other Mastiffs and took a BOB at each show. Need a couple more wins to be named Grand Champion. Ellie also took a group 3rd in the 1st show, and a group 2nd in the 2nd show.
Ellie showed at Columbus Ohio, November 20th and 21st, I want to thank, Carrie Claiber for taking the time to show Ellie for Don. You did a fantastic job handling her, for us. Ellie took a 2nd, and a Reserve to a major, on the 2nd day. Congratulations to everyone!
We showed Ellie at her first International dog show, February 29th-30th, 2011 Dayton Ohio. She behaved and show really well for Don. Ellie won BOB each show both days.
This makes her now a National Champion J-A, with IABCA. Way To Go Ellie and Don, you both Rock! Ellie 16 months old!
Standing so pretty for the judge!
February 13 2011, We showed Ellie at the Indy winter classic. Had a great time, Ellie took 1st in her class on Saturday and then Reserve to the 4 point major, on Sunday. Good getting back out to the shows!
Ellie received her Top Ten Certificate from UKC, she is the #3 Mastiff in ranking for 2010. I want everyone to know I added Ellie photo on her Top Ten Certificate.
" Congratulations Ellie"... You and your daddy Don are awesome!
