Just about 50 {530e870c018efe4faeaf1650f5521f73bbd950ecc9f753be09e2bfdaa8245e82} of her life, Rockford resident Rhiannon Stine dreamed of observing a Neapolitan Mastiff in human being.

Now, not only does she personal the unusual breed of doggy, but she’ll be also displaying her in this year’s Westminster Kennel Club Dog Present.

Stine’s journey to the nation’s premiere dog display held in New York began in late 2019 when she and a close friend, Tegan Ottowitz, traveled to Michigan to see two Neapolitan Mastiffs for all of 10 minutes in a dog show. It was Stine’s 1st time viewing the exceptional breed in person.

“It is been my desire breed due to the fact I was 16,” Stine, 29, said.
