Now available for adoption: Daisy! She is a young girl at 10 months old and absolutely adores people. She is playful, sometimes a little too playful, with other dogs, but she is not an alpha dog, by any means. She takes correction from her foster mates in her current home very well. She is currently living with an indoor cat (who is quite dog savvy!) and she is curious but respectful. She came into rescue as a stray dumped with her littermate sister. She is fully house trained, crate trained, and has had all of her vetting completed. She is now ready for her next adventure. She will do very well in a home with other dogs or in a home with only humans to love on and play with. She is good with children. We recommended that the children in her new home be of elementary school age and above because of her zest for life and her energy. We wouldn’t want her to accidentally knock over a toddler as she runs by them. She likes to chase a ball and if you have a strong arm and a lot of time, she will go get it all afternoon… Come and get her 🐾🤠🧡🐶 If interested in adopting, start by filling out an application on our website, link in bio* Age, Sex, Weight: Female, 10 months, approx 30lbs* Breed/Look: ACD, Blue Heeler* Coat, Color: Short, black, tan, white* Location: Rio Rico* Fully vetted, microchipped, fixed* Full house house trained and crate trained* Lives with: adult humans, dogs, a cat* Traits: loving, playful#arizonacattledogrescue #rescuedog #cattledog #heeler #blueheeler #redheeler #cattledogsofinstagram #heelergram #adopt #adoptme ...

Now available for adoption: Hawkins! Do you like to party? Hike? Run? Do triathlons before breakfast? 😂 Hawkins is your guy!! Hawkins is just a tad over 1 yr. His birthday is 11/8. He is a LOVE! He is an active boy that benefits from stimulation, like exercise. But he also settles really well, and is content to just chill with his family. He would EXCEL at dog sports if that’s your thing. Hawkins does great with the other 5 dogs in his foster home. He “can” be protective of his food with dogs, but we have no issues now with just being aware and managing. His start in life was locked in a small run with a littermate, so not surprising. Hawkins also participated in a local board and train program and did great. And that training will transfer to his new family as far as learning what he’s learned Hawkins foster family love him dearly, and will be crushed to let him go. But they realize he needs a more active lifestyle. He’s still a puppy— in his mind anyway… come and get him! 🐾🤠🧡🐶 If interested in adopting, start by filling out an application on our website, link in bio* Age, Sex, Weight: Male, 1 yr, 40lbs* Breed/Look: ACD, Red Heeler* Coat, Color: Short, red, white* Location: Cave Creek* Fully vetted, microchipped, neutered* Full house house trained* Lives with: adult humans, dogs* Traits: eager, loving, smart#arizonacattledogrescue #rescuedog #cattledog #heeler #blueheeler #redheeler #cattledogsofinstagram #heelergram #adopt #adoptme ...
