Joker is a stunning merle Heeler baby. He is just turning 8 weeks and looking for an amazing home. He is a merle color with some black spots. He has upright ears that stand, and flop depending on the days but we feel will likely stand as an adult. He is going to be a medium sized dog as mom is about 30 lbs. We are told that he is pure bred but we were not there at the time of conception, only though their time after birth. These little guys are little bundles of joy who are looking for amazing homes that are looking for a super smart, and ready to go buddy!
Sunshine, their mom, and the babies came to us in a confusing situation. She was owned by a woman who did not have a good set up for a dog of her breed. She lived in a small apartment with out a lot of time, funds, or time for her. She had recently had babies ( as in a few hours before we took her). And the woman had no way to take care of the babies as well. To top things off she was considering putting sunshine down because she was protecting the babies. As any new mom would do, confused, when strangers kept coming in and trying to take them. Heck I am pretty sure I screamed at more then a few nurses as well! The babies and her were at risk for loosing their lives if someone didn’t offer help fast. We are glad we did as they are all amazing!
The babies are amazing. We have had them around cats, dogs, kids, animals, livestock, and just having a good time. They have been raised inside in a house with all the sounds and activity of a home/farm. They have been working on house breaking, but they are still babies and have not understood much more then its fun to go outside. They have had lots of toys and always seem to be playing with the balls, and other fun toys. They are amazing dogs and will make amazing pets for the right homes.
The babies are up to date, dewormed, flea treated, and microchip. They will be required to be altered when they are old enough. This is prepaid for and will be required to be done at 6-8 mo of age. They are working on basic commands, which really means they are learning to come to see us for attention. They are amazingly smart and a few are already working on fetch. They do require to have a fenced yard and would do amazing in homes that would give them something to do. These little gems are amazing dogs and we know will make amazing pets.
We spend a lot of time trying to get to know the dogs in our program as best as we can. This means that we have spent time introducing them to dogs, cats, kids, animals, people and as many things as we can. We try to do as much as we can to evaluate them, both with in our group and if the dogs come from other rescues or shelters their evaluations as well. However dogs are individuals and will react to different situations differently. This means that we do not know how a dog will react in every situation. We give out our best guess based off information provided but the handler of a dog and the way they are introduced to a situation makes a huge impact. So if you have any questions of how to introduce a dog to your home, please let us know and we will provide as much info as we can from pamphlets to helping find a trainer in your area.
Our rescue aims to help dogs who are passed by and over looked by most rescues and people. We help the dogs who are in need of medical care, vetting, training and breeds that most will not help with. In most shelters if you are large dog, a big dog, or a male dog; from the moment you walk in you are on barrowed time. If you have docked ears or are a guardian breed your time was over before you walked in the doors. We aim to save these dogs and give them a second chance. Please help us save more lives by helping with our medical bills as they grow. This year has already been hard and we have many medical dogs in need.

Listed puppies as Mastiff-Doberman mix. Told the whole store of the parents, what they looked like, how the doberman accidently got pregnant with the mastiff.... 6 months ish later, we dna test the dog (due to doubting the breeds), to find it is 50/50 staffordshire terrier with doberman. Pit Bull is a harder sell. When confronted with this information, Trisha threatened to come take the dog back, and to put a restraining order on me. She didn't like that I told her she was still under investigation with the Sherriff of Yakima Valley's Plice Dept. The Sherriff told me they receive a LOT of complaints about this lady.
