Red Heeler / Terrier / Mixed : : Female (spayed)
The Mighty Nine puppies are terrier/heeler mixes. Typically, these breeds have a strong instinct to chase, dig, and herd. They are active, intelligent, energetic dogs, and if they’re not provided an adequate outlet for expressing their natural behaviors, they tend to express them in ways people don’t enjoy — digging under the fence, herding children or other members of the household, and chasing whatever moves. Although we don’t believe in making sweeping generalizations about any dog based on its breed, it’s much safer to assume these dogs will be active, high-drive dogs than to hope for a couch potato. Each puppy is an individual, and some behaviors will be more prevalent in some of the puppies than others. That said, ideal adopters must commit to a minimum of one training class. They should expect to spend significant time providing physical exercise and mental enrichment for their dog — a daily walk around the block will likely not be enough activity once these puppies reach adolescence and adulthood. These puppies are good candidates for agility and other canine sports. A fully fenced yard is highly recommended, but not mandatory. Invisible/electronic fence users will not be considered.
We have 9 playful, happy little puppies that will be looking for homes soon - We are opening them up to start receiving applications for a PRE-APPROVAL process. **They will not be able to leave for their new homes until they are spayed/neutered and fully vaccinated which will be mid February** PLEASE READ to get a better understanding of these pups, and what the adoption process will be like. Currently, they are in foster homes and getting the much needed training and proper socialization needed. They are NOT at the shelter, so please do not come in expecting to meet them. Watch our FB page daily for each specific puppy to be highlighted with a pic and important puppy training tips! These sweet babies are a Red Heeler/Terrier mix and can live 15+ years. They are cute, but please remember that it's a LIFE LONG commitment and discuss with all family members before applying. They are affectionate, charming, highly active and intelligent little creatures that will need dedicated and consistent training in order to thrive. While we can not predict their full grown size, we expect they will be between 25-35 pounds based on mom and dad. They all will be spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated, micro-chipped, flea treated and dewormed.
Applications can be placed via our website only at this time. While you may select a specific puppy to apply for on the website, all applications will be reviewed, and once approved a meet and greet with prospective adopters will be scheduled. At that time we will be able to better determine what puppy will be best for each home based on their specific personalities and needs. With a litter of 9, they are not one size fits all - they have different personalities and characteristics! We want to ensure each puppy and adopter are appropriately matched to ensure a forever home!
Regarding the application process: Any application that is incomplete and not filled out in its entirety will not be processed. As applications are received - all will be reviewed and calls made to those that seem best suited for these pups, this may take some time for us on our end - PLEASE BE PATIENT!
