Our Queensland Heelers, in Standard, Miniature, and Toy sizes
We have raised Working Queensland Heelers since the 1960’s out of stock that the cattlemen imported from Australia in the early to mid 60’s. Our dogs are old style Queensland’s they look a little different from the show style that most of the AKC breeders are producing today even though they go back to the same dogs. The old breeding is more athletic, very healthy tough workers & great companions as well. Through the years we bred for cattle working dogs, they were various sizes. As time went on there was less demand for workers & more demand for companions.
Many people liked the small sizes so we started a breeding program for minis separate from the regular standard size. We breed our Standard size females to standard size males to be sure & maintain the old style stock in the standard size. To establish our miniatures we bred the little undersized females to undersized males & through the years developed our minis, we did not use inbreeding or use dwarf dogs in our breeding program to decrease size we only use healthy well-proportioned breeding stock. For more info on the minis scroll down to the bottom of our site there is a blog for info on the minis & toys.
We register Most of our dogs through NAPDR as Queensland Heelers in standard & miniature sizes. As far as we know, we are the first to register Miniature Queensland Heelers in their own category. If they are 12in or less we consider them, toy size minis & they usually weigh 10 to 15 pounds. Over 12” to 15” are miniatures & usually weigh from 15 to 25 pounds. 16” to 17” we class as small standards. 17” to 19” is considered breed standard for females. 18” to 20” is considered breed standard for males.
All of our sizes still have working ability, the minis do good on small livestock & poultry. Most of our standard size dogs still go back to the original dogs of the 60’s they have been born here on the ranch every generation. We have many colors in all sizes. Blues in many shades, from light silver, to almost black, some light lavender to a darker purple shade. Reds in many shades as well, from a light Apricot to a dark rust, Also Chocolate in many shades, from a light cream to a deep Hershey brown, all shades of Chocolate have brown noses it is the inability to be black. Blue slate (very rare) are a silvery/blue with blue nose, it is a dilute of black. All colors come in speckled, mottled & roan patterns; they can be from all white to solid. Heelers are born white then color out as they grow. Sometimes they have body spots, which are there at birth & sometimes these spots cover almost the entire body. White is a lack of the ticking gene that makes them color out as they grow. Purebred heelers are rarely born without a tails; they are a long tailed breed. However, some people prefer doc tails, so we dock a few pups for selection & will dock tails on some pups per request at a young age.
We take deposits on young & unborn puppies Deposits are non-refundable, however the deposit can be used to buy a different puppy or dog current or for the future. We will replace any genetically defective puppy with a new puppy. We would not pay any vet bills,testing,medication,transportation,shipping or any other cost that have occurred.
