Hi… my name is Tie,

Adopted 1-4-22

I am an affectionate Blue Heeler who loves to cuddle and get belly rubs. I have gotten along with other animals in the past, and I know how to use a doggie door. Because I am deaf, I have learned hand signals and they say that I respond well to them. I’d love to learn more, too, because we heelers are a smart breed, always ready to learn something new! I walk well on a leash when out with the vounteers, but I also love to run off some of my herding dog energy whenever I get a chance! My former owners said I had too much of that, so I am looking for an active person or family who enjoys being out and about as much as I do. Is that you?

Hi… my name is Lovey (aka Lady),

Adopted 6-21-19

I may be a Blue Heeler, but my exterior reveals black and white. Cute, right! I may have a rough exterior, but they don’t call me lovey for nothing. Some say I live up to my name; they say I am a true love. Even though I may not be the friendliest at first, I sure do have a place for your love. If you ever have a hard time, I can add my “healer” skill to make you better, but I can’t promise that I will be the best around other dogs. According to my previous owner, I am presently an Olympic jumper and can compete in chewing and digging contests. I always have room for improvement to retire from Olympic training and competition. Come visit me soon to see my lovey side reveal itself.

PS Yes, those are my baby photos at the end of the gallery.

CALLIE is a beautiful and smart 3-year-old, 48-pound female Blue Heeler that needs a new home as there are numerous grandchildren and she is not good with kids.

Hi… my name is Sarge,

Adopted 10-2-17

I was a lost dog (found on La Canada), without a home or person of my own, but I still think it’s a wonderful world! I’m in a great place now and someday soon (I’m an optimistic guy), someone wonderful is going to take me home. The kind person who rescued me said I was “very, very friendly,” and when someone says “very” twice, you now they really mean it! However, I’ve not liked some of the other dogs I’ve met and definitely not cats; but around people I know and love, I’m playful, lively, and ready for fun. At 3 years old and 32 pounds, I’m a sturdy Blue Heeler mix male who thrives on activity, can be protective and cautious of strangers, a brave and loyal companion. Please let me be yours!

Hi… my name is Spiker,

Adopted 6-4-17

As my former people explained, their “14-year-old Heeler passed away, which caused the dynamics within the house to change.” After that, the other boy dog and I didn’t get along, so I lost my home. But they left me with loads of compliments, saying I’m “great with cats…an indoor dog who has the run of the house…fully trained for bathroom duty.” They didn’t have kids, but at their house I was “good with all ages.” I’m a 4-year-old Blue Heeler male, 37 pounds, and sometimes I’m nervous or shy. Maybe you understand. If so, we could have great fun together—I love to chase a ball, catch a Frisbee, go on walks/hikes (trained to carry a pack), and know a long list of commands. Won’t you please say my forever home is with you?

Hi… my name is Sarge,

Adopted February 26, 2016

I’m so hoping someone out there will give me a second chance. I’m a 3½ year-old classic purebred Blue Heeler, and people tell me my beautiful coat makes me an especially handsome fellow. My favorite time to hear that is when the person saying it is nearby so I can bask in their company and enjoy a really good one-on-one petting. When it comes right down to it, I just adore being someone’s companion because that’s really my job in life. Like lots of Heelers, I’m smart, energetic and would love a “job” to do to keep me on the straight and narrow. If you believe in second chances, I hope you’ll give one to me. If you do, I promise to do my very best to make you glad that you’re my person.
