***ADOPTION PENDING*** CASH – Blue Heeler – Male – 1 Y
You may recognize this face as “Rowdy” – we adopted him out in April of this year but, unfortunately, he did come back to us as a returned adoption (and not without a lot of tears). There was an older Heeler in the home who was having some physical issues (illness) and Cash was not being nice to him at all. It became not only an issue for Cash but a huge one for the older dog who was trying to heal and recover. It was agreed by all parties that Cash needed to come back into our program. He was immediately placed in the home of our trainer and she has been working with him for almost 4 weeks now.
Cash truly wants to be someone’s top dog – he would love to have his human all to himself but would probably share with another dog as long as the first introductions went properly (the other dog should NOT be a dominant dog). In his old home, he had a lab to play with and would lead him around by the collar. This boy is a quick learner, he wants to please – training is fun but you have to keep it interesting otherwise Cash will find it boring and his attention will wander. Knows the commands sit, down, and understands what “get your toy” means. He will then drop the toy on command when you say “drop it” and fetch it again. Understands “lets go for a ride” and rides great.
He gives you his paw when you ask him to for a treat and learned that in under 5 minutes. Cash is very attentive to his owner (especially when it is one on one) and loves being the center of attention.
Cash loves to hike and is good off leash. Has ridden on a kayak; the flat top kind and though he does not volunteer to jump in, he can swim. He will not go in to get a stick but plays from shore and goes in up to his belly. Has a blast and loves the exercise. He will let you rub his belly, trim his nails and give him a bath. Cash loved to ride in the “mule” sitting right next to his old owner as he took the trash cans up to the main road or to visit neighbors. Cash is ready to go for a ride, walk and play anytime. Has always been friendly with new people. The old owner claimed she always get compliments on him — how beautiful he was and how friendly.
Cash is housebroke and crate trained. He does have barrier aggression while in his crate if a dog should walk by – our trainer says this is still a work in progress. Watch your fingers when giving him a treat as he can be all mouth. We do not think Cash will do well with cats – he likes to stalk them which may not end well for some kitty. We also believe he would not do well with small toddlers as he would probably herd them all into a corner. Older kids will be fine. Cash cannot be left unsupervised in the house — he likes to cruise counters and will be destructive. He is fascinated by livestock and shows potential that he wants to work.
We are all in agreement that Cash will need to go to a home that is experienced with this breed and also a person who can supply this boy with a job. Cash is your typical high strung Heeler pup who needs someone to keep that smart brain of his motivated and active — if he gets bored, you will not like the results of his creativity. Neutered, up to date on shots, microchipped — where are our Heeler lovers out there?? Someone is going to have a ball with this boy and he is going to be your #1 best friend for life!
