Meet Buckshot!  Buckshot will be 1 year old Sept. 7th 2021.  He is a 27 pound Male Blue Heeler Mix who is also Deaf. He was surrendered to a high kill animal control facility along with a younger litter of puppies.  Unfortunately, another rescue pulled the puppies and left Buckshot behind.  We couldnt leave him there alone, confused and afraid.  

Hard-working, intelligent, and loyal—that’s a Blue Heeler in a nutshell. Historically, these dogs were bred to work on farms as herding dogs and they still thrive when they have a job to do. Their fierce loyalty makes them even better workers. Even if you don’t work on a farm, you can put them to work. They love figuring out puzzles and retrieving toys.  We are only considering families with kids 10 years old or over as the heeler mixes like to herd small children sometimes.  

Because he is deaf we are requiring a home with a secure physical fenced yard for Buckshot.  With his breed instincts, he is very active and will also be a "Velcro" dog because he is deaf.  He will look to his human for communication and direction.  He does know some hand signals.  Because of the attention he needs being an active and also deaf pup, we would like to see him as the only dog in the family where he will have all focus on him.   

Buckshot is neutered, current on vaccines, including Rabies, dewormed, tested Negative for Heart Worm and current on prevention and current on flea/tick prevention.  His adoption fee is $350.00.  If interested in meeting Buckshot, complete an adoption application online at
