What Breeds Make Up the Australian Cattle Dog/Blue or Red Heeler?

So what breeds were used to come up with a Blue or Red Heeler, Australian Cattle Dog or Queensland Heeler (all the same dog by the way)? The list is a lot longer than you might think! If you start from the beginning the first dog was called a Smithfield, it had heavy hair, floppy ears, a bob tail with a dark body and a white ring around it's neck, that dog was crossed with a Native Australian Dingo, the resulting dog was crossed with a Rough Coated Collie. This dog was then crossed with a Blue Smooth Highland Collie, the resulting dog was crossed back on the Dingo again. These dogs then had some Bull Terrier added to them (about 1870), to calm this little fighter down they then added Dalmation into the mix to make a more devoted loyal dog (oops! Excuse the "mix" pun!).  In case you wondered the Australian Cattle Dog was not recognized by the American Kennel Club as a purebred breed until 1980. With that in mind...... can a Heeler have spots? Can they be pure white? Can they have a natural bob tail? Can they have curly hair? Can they be brindle? .... Sure they can... it's all in the genes!

What about the Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler being a Miniature Dog? I realized many years ago that people naturally gravitated towards our smaller puppies, the smaller they were the better they liked them. I set out to keep my highest quality dogs to use in my breeding program that were smallest in size. Through the years I was able to get a smaller and smaller Cattle Dog/Heeler. They are 100% Heelers with no other breed used besides a Heeler..... just years and years of selection and breeding to get a smaller maturing dog.

All deposits and payments that are made on my puppies are non-refundable. If you decide that you can not have your puppy after you have put a deposit on it, you have credit towards any other puppy I have at anytime in the future when your situation is better again. If you decide you don't want the puppy you picked out and you want to change to another puppy understand when a puppy goes back on the website again everyone then thinks there was something wrong with the puppy you no longer want. I am forced to price the puppy for less because it then seems like something is wrong with it because you changed your mind. In that case you are responsible for the difference in price that it was when you picked it out and the reduced price I have to put it at because of the situation. So make sure when you pick a puppy out that you actually want that puppy. It isn't fair to the puppy for your indecision to make the puppy look like something is wrong with it.
After you get your new puppy do not take it to a dog park, public trails, Petsmart or any place where there are other dogs and it can be exposed to germs until it has all three of the shots in it's puppy series. Remember, your new puppy is not protected from transmittable diseases until it has had all of the shots in it's series

Are Heelers Good With Kids?

Probably 90% of our puppies go to families with either small children in the home or grandkids. Heelers are great family pets, they will play with your children until they are played out! Since they are instinctual herding dogs Heelers "fixate" on their people. They want to be where ever you are and do what ever you are doing 100% of the time. They won't always like new people but they love the ones that they are raised with. Our dogs have intentionally to be bred to be companions as well as work if their family wants them to. Ninety-nine percent of our puppies will never herd anything more than their kids in the yard but all of our dogs will go to stock if they have the opportunity. We have been told by other people that they have heard that Heelers are not good family dogs. If you have a Heeler that is only bred to work cattle, they can be extremely aggressive. It is important if you are looking for a Heeler for a companion or for your children that you get a puppy from a breeder that is producing dogs with good minds. We have many puppies that have grown up and are now being used as service dogs and in nursing homes

.

Here is a another question for you....... "My puppy's ear or ears have not stood up yet ..... what do I do?"

 To start with please try not to handle your new puppy's ears and encourage your children not to play with their ears. If it's ears are not up in a couple of weeks after you get it or it is 3 months old, then get some athletic tape, we find the wider is better, hold the ear up and put a circle of tape around the ear right where it bends. Puppies play very hard here before they leave and at your home after you get them.

PUREBRED AUSTRALIAN CATTLE DOGS DO NOT HAVE BLUE EYES. However an Australian Shepard can have blue eyes. If you have seen a dog that "looked" like a Blue Heeler that had blue eyes it most likely was part Australian Shepard. That does not mean that the blue eyed dog it is not a great dog, it just isn't a purebred Blue Heeler.

    Many of my puppies are service dogs for our returning service men and women that have PTSD. I have worked with The Semper Fi Foundation in the past. 

I take wire transfers, PayPal (you will need to add their fees) r cash as payment for puppies and shipping or deposits.  I take cash if you come and pick your puppy up in person. No checks or credit cards.

You saw a puppy you are interested in and you want to know what next...

Please don't text. Give me a call or email to visit about the puppies. I can answer your questions fastest and more completely if you call. I don't take payments through the mail or credit or debit cards anymore. I take wire transfers, Zelle and cash for deposits and payments. I took PayPal for a couple of months and got taken for $750 so that account is closed and I have signed up for Zelle which I understand is even better because it does transfers for free.Send me an email with your puppy on the subject line (ex: Pepper Girl 1) and please include your contact information in the email. That way I can easily reach you when your puppy is getting old enough to leave and I can quickly see who has each puppy in a litter. If we are going to ship your puppy to you I will need the name address and phone number of who will pick your puppy up at the airport and what airport you want to ship to. I can get to most major airports with United airlines but not always the small regional airports. For my records and so I have the best way to contact you it is crucial that you send me an email with your puppy on the subject line as soon as you decide you want a particular puppy. You may not feel like that is important but it is a big part of my system I am happy to answer any other questions you may have please feel free to give me a call.
