I came to the shelter as a Found dog. A kind person who had a similar looking dog contacted the shelter Internet handler and suggested that I may be a Blue Heeler mix but one is quite sure what else I may be mixed with. I am an adult female and a quiet dog. I have not missed any meals lately. I may need to be spayed by my new guardian. As a newly adopted shelter animal, it is recommended that I be seen by a veterinarian as soon as possible for a checkup. Surgery, vaccinations, worming, flea treatment, heartworm testing and prevention can be discussed at this time. I can do well in a city setting with a fenced-in yard but will do well in a country setting also. If you have been considering getting a dog, come in and meet me. I should make a great canine companion for a single person, a couple, a family with children, or even a senior citizen couple. What more could you want from a dog?
If you need a working dog, the Australian Cattle Dog or Blue Heeler, is as good as they get. This dog is a diligent, tough, courageous, and loyal dog that was bred for hard work. But it tends to be a one-person dog and may also feel compelled to establish dominance over other dogs. It has a coarse, short-haired, weather-resistant coat that requires little care and is very easy to groom. This animal has incredible stamina and will enjoy all the activity you can give it. Exercise is important. Without it, this dog may become bored and destructive.
