We were headed home from the farm and a lady who was riding the ferry with us told the husband that she had some blue heeler pups to give away. When we adopted Petie, we were looking for a heeler pup, but the one promised to us never materialized. So when this opportunity presented itself.....what else could we do? Besides, we felt that we were rescuing this little guy. When he was brought to us, he was with two of his remaining brothers. Each of the dogs was absolutly covered in ticks. They had so many ticks between their little toes that they were all splayed out. They were all in their ears and under their arms. We probably spent 2 hours picking off about 300 ticks.....it was AWFUL!
We decided on the name of Tug, since his possibility of adoption came about on the ferry which is
powered by a .....tug!
He went to the vet today.....got his first puppy shots, worming and weighed in at a healthy 10 lbs.
So now, has anybody got any good tips on training a heeler?
