Purebred heeler and DNA test results. Came from cattle working parents. Wonderful dog and eager to please and easy to train. Very loving. We adopted him when he was 1 year old and it was told he may have been abused/beaten. (He is 3 now) Not a fit for a home that will crate him. He is a bit anxious and does not want to be sitting in a house all day unless someone is with him.(work from home or retired person) He needs and wants a job to do and a home with room to run. He is a great guard dog and very intelligent. He has prey drive when he sees birds, squirrels or cats and that 'drive' can cause him to lose focus on everything and anything else and has caused him to make some bad choices. (bite but not attack) He immediately knows he has done something wrong before you even tell him anything because he acts guilty, sorry and retracts. It breaks his heart to know he has let you down or has done something wrong. He is not a 'nipper' but is protective and guarded with strangers more so men than women. Loves to play fetch and can jump like no other and is amazingly accurate. He is not dominating with other dogs, but not an ideal breed to be with a pack as they become too competitive. He is confident. He would be a great, loyal companion for a single farm person, truck driver etc. since he wants to be by your side. I marked the ad that he is best with adults and he has been great with kids, BUT some kids tease their dog and that wouldn't go well with him. He needs to trust you and a kid who is gentle and kind is fine. He is a strong dog, so he would easily knock over a small child, but not on purpose. He is a great dog that deserves a great home. We love him deeply. We don't want to give him up, but the few mistakes he has made has caused us issues with our neighbors. Fee is negotiable and is being donated back to Heeler Rescue.
