Now available for adoption— Grits (deaf)! Have you been searching for the perfectly discreet restroom escort? Someone who will lavish love on you at any given moment? Someone you can share all your secrets with, and will NEVER share them? Grits is your guy. Because he’s deaf, your secrets are safe! This stunning boy is about one year old, and about 34 lbs. And the very definition of “blue glue”. He is a sweet and loving boy. A stay at home person would be his ideal love connection. He has the cutest little back legs too! Whether an old injury, or a congenital issue, his back legs are a little bowed. Our vet thinks it’s nothing that should hamper a full, happy life. He runs with wild abandon in the yard.  He has the most beautiful tail as well.His foster home has 4 other dogs and he’s perfectly fine with them, big and small. Cats are unknown. His foster has been working on basic hand signals with him as well, “no, ok/good and come here”. He likely never set foot in a home before being rescued. He is now crate trained, although he’s not a fan if you’re not home (barks), he sleeps all night in one nicely. He’s picking up on the living inside deal like a rock star. And Grits LOVES toys. He can be a little possessive of toys, with other dogs. We assume he never had anything of his “own”. Grits is house trained. Grits is being fostered in Carefree, AZ.Grits is a very special boy to his foster family, and are looking for the perfect situation for Grits 🐾🤠🧡🐶 If interested in adopting, start by filling out an application on our website (link in bio)* Sex, Age, Weight: male, ~1 year, ~34lbs* Breed/Look: Australian Cattle Dog, Blue Heeler, mix* Coat, Color: black, white, tan* Location: Carefree, AZ* Vetted, fixed, chipped, vaccinated* House and crate trained, some obedience* Currently lives with: adult humans, dogs* Traits: loyal, sweet, loving#arizonacattledogrescue #cattledog #cattledogsofinstagram #heelergram #adopt ...

Now available for adoption— Frankie! This young, handsome, blued eyed baby will be available for adoption as of the 9th of May! Meet Frankie. He is almost 4 months old and is just the most gorgeous boy, with his blue, blue eyes, and his floppy black ears. He is a card carrying ACD (Australian Cattle Dog) mix. What is he mixed with? He has been tight lipped with that information so we can only speculate that somewhere in his lineage there was a hound of some sort. He does not bay but barks like every other self-respecting ACD.He has just the best personality. Always happy, and very active with his 4 foster brothers and sisters. He keeps them on their toes with his antics. He loves to play with the big dogs, and he loves to cuddle with his foster parents. He adores his squeaky toys and will share a game of tug-tug with his foster sister. He is not going to be a big dog, rather we think he will be medium sized when he finally grows into his feet and his ears. He currently weighs in at 15 lbs.Frankie is 60% crate trained and is still learning the ropes of house training. He’s a smart little guy and will get it as he ages a bit. He loves to play chase in the backyard with the other fosters and he is darned good at keeping up! He is very treat-motivated so any training you want to do with him will only require that you bring food to the party!Frankie is fully vetted and ready to find his forever home, hopefully with another dog who is respectful of him 🐾🤠🧡🐶 If interested in adopting, start by filling out an application on our website (link in bio)* Sex, Age, Weight: male, 4 months, 15lbs* Breed/Look: Australian Cattle Dog, Blue Heeler, mix* Coat, Color: black, white, tan* Location: Rio Rico, AZ* Vetted, fixed, chipped, vaccinated* Some house and crate traineing, some obedience* Currently lives with: adult humans, dogs* Traits: friendly, playful, smart#arizonacattledogrescue #cattledog #cattledogsofinstagram #heelergram #adopt ...
