stumpy tailed cattle dog + tail = ACD = blue heeler-blue+ red = red heeler and where the heck does queensland heeler add into all of this. i have always called boomer a ACD and this is what akc call them also but about 90% of these " ble heelers" are tailless in my area. i hate tale docking and tell everyone that gets acd's not to do so. What do you guys think?thinking

Please don't- feed your dog- Beneful.

First, Stumpy Tails are not docked ACDs, they are a separate breed.

Queensland Heeler, Blue Heeler, Red Heeler, Australian Cattle Dog are all the same thing. Blue Heelers refer to blueish ACDs, Red Heelers are redish ACDs. Queensland is a part of Australia.

There is no difference between these terms, all mean ACD lol.
