|sadly i had to put my 16 1/2 year old husky to sleep september 10th,her arthuritis,hips and nerves were just terrible,got her for high school graduation in 1994.she was a bit difficult to housebreak but she picked up on it,and everything else,loved to play,she was pretty energenic and listened well.
now that i am searching for another companion.pet i am taking time to consider all avenues.i read that heelers are intillegent and faily easy to train,loyal and freindly but might need crate time if nobody home,i do got a large fenced in back yard with a 6 foot fence so plenty of room to roam if not home,i work 8 hours a day m-f,is that too much time away?
i also read that theyre heel nippers,well its in their blood,but that should be trainable?my husky when i'd walk her would grab my pantleg and try to drag me foward faster,or the leash.that actually amused me so i should be able to handle that.
i got no kids,maybe a few little cousins might stop by from time to time.but we got a cat,how do these heelers get along with cats if theyre just pups?we had to keep my husky downstairs with me and the cat upstair as she would chase him.3 years ago we had to put the cat to sleep due to kidney failure but got another kitten.my husky still tried to chase her but only half heartedly as she was getting older at that point.
so at this point i been searching for blue heeler and husky breeders,most i found for the heelers are 4 hours or more away and i would really like to see the facilities they are raised in as we got out husky in a town only 30 minutes away,the breeder no longer are in buisness as they are either in their 80's or deceased.
so anbody know of any repetable blue heeler breeders?
would a blue heeler be right for me?
