    It's funny the pic of the cattle dog above here is an exact replica of my dog, Sydney.He's the second Heeler I've had in my life. I've waited a long time to get him, because I know they can be challenging dogs.The good things: He's smart, very smart, loyal, actually to a fault...

    My Baby, Ol' Red :)

    My Red Heeler, full blood A.C.D. is soooo full of life! He loves to jump on people and greet them (which he is slowly learning not everyone wants to be jumped on ;) ) He loves running, racing and jumping for balls and frisbees. He is not much of a cuddler, but loves to be pet...

    Sally Pup

    Our beloved yellow Lab mix passed on- arthritis and old age took away our precious pup.  I decided I wanted an intelligent off the couch dog before age caught up with me- I knew that an ACD fit the bill.  I thought I'd checked out the facts well then we brought home Sally and...
