Description: 
This cutie is a Red Heeler/Australian Shepard mix. According to his owners who need to find a new home for him: He is a 2 year old neutered male,loves kids,has lots of energy (like most heelers do),and is very quiet (NOT a barker). Up to now, he has been an outdoor dog, but we would like to have him indoors and part of a family. Although it may not be true in this instance, in our experience, many 'outdoor' dogs are given up because they are easy to ignore and, with very few exceptions, their care becomes more of a burden. If they are indoors, they are considered a valuable part of the family, as they should be, and caring for them is just an extension of caring for other family members. Because he hasn't been inside, he would need to be housetrained. But, heelers/australian shepards are very intelligent and pick up new routines quickly. We would recommend crate-training him and then ease him into his housetraining that way. This dog's adoption fee is $125, which includes his neuter and updated vaccinations (parvo/distemper and rabies--updated 4/10/08.) If you would like to meet this cutie, please email us: scfourpaws@hotmail.com or leave a message @ 435/752-3534.Please be patient with us getting back to you as we are all volunteers with full-time jobs.
