Hi… my name is Lovey (aka Lady),

Adopted 12-31-18

As a young dog (born in February 2018), I happily admit to still having things to learn. I’ll gladly pay attention to the person I’m with—you could say I’m all ears—and more training will be very welcome. But I’m shy at first. Now a 50-pound female, I was a tiny, tiny puppy when originally found. Then my first adoption wasn’t a good fit. So now, a little confidence is needed, which will go nicely with my energetic, loyal nature. Athletic, alert, and smart—I’m eager to stay active and prove my devotion. Some sweet friends have complimented my speckled black and white Blue Heeler coat, and they’ve made me feel welcome here, but I dream of you—the patient, understanding person who will return my devotion with kindness and a loving home.

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

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.
