Thank you for your interest in our available dogs. We like to get to know the dogs in our care prior to posting them for adoption so if you do not see the dog you are looking for, feel free to put an interest form in telling us what you are looking for in a forever friend. We love to "match-make" and we may have a dog that is not yet posted that is perfect for you. Once we have an interest form from you, one of our staff will contact you (in 7 - 10 days) to discuss your needs in detail as well as the dog(s) you are interested in.
Please note, if you are unable to see the pictures of our dogs, your browser may not be up to date.
I am looking for my forever best friend! My personality is the epitome of what it means to be a Heeler. I want to be around my person and always touching them when we are together. I love to play tug, chew bones, and get exercise. If I can cuddle while doing so, even better! Most importantly, I LOVE CARS! I always want to hop in the car or truck. I am afraid of new experiences, but I am brave. As long as I can smell around, I will warm up to the new person, place, or thing. Although I am deaf, I constantly check in and read the social cues given by people and other animals, as well. I'd do best in a home with children 13 years and older. Please no apartments for me, I can bark a bit and we think I may get in trouble in an apartment!
Breed: Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler)
Color: White - with Black
Age: 4 years
I do fine with some dogs, but will need a slow introduction and very specific boundaries in the house as I tend to guard resources. While outside on a leash, I have only shown positive interest in other dogs. When I am uncomfortable with another dog, I will warn them with a low growl. Typically, I warm up quickly after my warning. I have not had any accidents inside. I am fully potty trained. I love my crate! I am learning to walk on a leash, but I pull and try to play tug with it. I am a bit mouthy and need help to curb that behavior.
I have lived with cats prior to my foster and showed little interest. I show a lot of interest in the cats I live with currently because they react to me. I do better with female dogs that are my size. I have shown extreme resource guarding with the large dogs whom I live with currently. I am working on that. Outside of the house, I only show positive interest in all dogs.
I have only lived with teenagers prior to my foster home. Outside of the home I have not enjoyed watching kids run around. They make me nervous. I'd do best in a home with children 13 years and older.
I love rope toys to play tug. I also enjoy bones, kongs, and other hard chew toys. I would probably enjoy soft toys too, but my foster siblings rip soft toys to pieces before I have a chance to play with them.
A home with confident, calm, yet active people would be wonderful! Please no apartments for me! I am a Heeler and I have the energy to back it up! I want to use my intelligence and need exercise daily. I would love it if you allow me to go on car rides with you daily because I love the car. I need someone with a lot of patience and someone willing to train with me – especially since I'm deaf! I would love a place that likes cuddles and constant interaction. I bond with “my person” quickly and would love to give you all my loyalty and companionship!
