He’s 4 1/2 months old in this photo (which is current) he’s extremely smart, learns fast, loves puzzle toys, highly energetic, barks a lot and chews a lot. Anyone have any idea what he might...

    Hi guys! My dog (2 1/2 year old german shepherd-blue heeler mix) has had pretty bad separation anxiety in the past. She was a rescue and when we first got her, if we left her alone, she would destroy anything and everything while howling up a storm. We ended up replacing a couch and a...

    Hello, I am wanting to add a helper to my small farm. I raise both hogs and cattle (only a few of each). I recently had difficulty loading some hogs on the trailer in which the got out of the pen. I ran them everywhere until we got them back in. Speaking to a local guy he said a good farm dog...

    Hi, I asked this before when I got Springer as a puppy. I'm still convinced he is Catahoula mixed with either some Aussie or some Heeler. He was a rescue pup found in a log in Kentucky. I've now got him in California and we run every day, he is super fast and loves me to death. He is 3...

    Hello. I'm new here. I have a 6 month old blue heeler pup. As I'm sure a lot of other cattle dog owners do, we are having some trouble with strangers. When we are somewhere public, like walking on the beach, and she doesn't have time to claim something, she is fine with people. Of course, she...
  6. Dog Breeds
    So I got a puppy, and was told that she was a purebred blue heeler, only she looks and acts nothing like the blue heelers we have had before. He hair doesn't have that wirey feel to it, plus shes mostly white and black, with very few brown spots on her. I'm not upset or anything, just something...

    Hello all, recently you explained to me what my "mal" might be, by "mal" I mean probably some GSD mixed with a floppy eared dog.. haha. Let's try it again with her brother, Plato. He's a "Lab mix" but he pretty much only has the coat of a lab. Head looks different, ears different, tail...

    Roy (my Blue Heeler/Boston Terrier mix) is now 12 weeks old and a solid 18lbs. He's growing fast, but after this sweltering Missouri heat I know that it'll soon be fall, but I want to prep for the winter. So as for my questions... 1.) Is he going to have to put up with clothes for the cold? 2.)...

    Hi everyone, First time poster. I’ve been browsing around a bit though - happy I found a place to talk dog. Anyways, long story short my girlfriend and I are talking very seriously about adopting a rescue. We live in Boston, MA. While we’re keeping our options open in terms of breed and age...

    Hi, me and my husband adopted a 2 year old blue heeler that was part of a foster group in my town. This foster group pulled "Jessie" from the animal shelter on the day she was marked to be euthanized. We were looking for a good dog that would be a watch dog (I'm home alone a lot at nights)...
  11. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi everyone! My (new) husband and I just adopted a now 8 week old Blue Heeler (Australian Cattle Dog)-- she was 7 weeks when we got her. She is super adorable, and we love her to pieces, but she's driving me a little nuts. She does fairly well with housebreaking, although we have the...

    My Neighbor found him on her morning walk about 2 months ago. We took him in because she couldnt keep him, and he was going to be taken to the pound ...He is an amazing dog. I googled ACDs, because everyone and their mother has told me that he looks like a full blooded one. And I do have to...
