In shelter Dog

Sioux Falls, SD, 57106
Pet name:
Australian Cattle Dog / Blue Heeler
Blue Heeler, 6 months, 26lbs $375 Adoption Fee

Ralph is a neutered male pup who is about 6 months old. His breed is unknown but we guess hes a cattle dog mix with his adorable speckles on his coat and belly.

Ralph is so, so smart. He has already learned to sit and shake in his foster home. He only had to be showed how to sit twice and he was doing it on his own. He loves treats and is eager to do whatever it takes to get a treat or an ice cube.

Ralph is also a very sweet boy. Hes been around kids 4 and up in his foster home and has been very loving and gentle.

Ralph has enjoyed playing with the other dogs in his foster home and seems to get along with all dogs. He really enjoys running and playing with other dogs and would do well in a home with other dogs or as an only dog.

He hasnt had close contact with cats in his foster home but he does bark when he sees a cat. Ralph also rides very well in the car, snuggling up on the seat next to the kids in his foster home.

Ralph does sometimes tinkle if he gets really excited or nervous, but has otherwise been doing very well in his foster home with potty training. Hes been working on kennel training and keeps his kennel clean.

Ralph is such a sweet, smart boy. Hed love to meet you if youre interested in adding him to your family.
