Hi! My name is Rapheal (Raphy for short) and I am a 1-2 yr old blue heeler x cattle dog mix.  I was rescued from an overcrowded shelter in New Mexico just days before I was to be euthanized (simply because the shelter ran out of space).  I am a stocky boy (not overweight, just big boned!).  I can be a bit shy when I first meet you; but, with kindness, patience and some yummy treats you can win my trust and then I will be your shadow (like all good heelers).  It takes me a minute to warm up to new/strange dogs; but, once I feel comfortable I love to play and wrestle.  Ive have met the cat in my foster home and Im mostly afraid of her (although my foster mom things I am secretly plotting her demise).  So, a home without cats would probably be best.  Small/young kids make me nervous, so I would prefer a home without kids (or only older, dog savvy kids). I am house-broken and crate trained (although I dont need a crate.  Im very well-behaved when left alone in the house).  I am neutered and up-to-date on my vaccinations.  If you are interested in meeting me, please contact
