Maisy's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Maisy's Story...
Maisy (Maisy Mouse, Mousie Girl, Mouserella) is a 9 month old Australian Shepherd/Blue Heeler mix. We adopted her when she was 3 months old in August of 2014 from a farm in Hartland. She is up to date on all of her shots, and is spayed. She weighs about 35 lbs, and is a blue merle.

Maisy is a great dog for adults or homes with older children. She loves to run, play fetch, tug of war, and chase. She does well with other dogs. She has been housebroken since we brought her home, and she learned in 2 weeks. Since then she has not had an accident in the house once! When she has to go out, she barks by the front door. We let her out without a leash, because she never leaves the yard...she is a Velcro dog, and likes to be around her people. We can bring Maisy outside when we shovel, play, or hang out, and she never has an issue with chasing squirrels, rabbits, or ever leaving the yard. She easily adjusts to the temperament of the household, and enjoys a daily walk of 3-4 miles. She walks well on a leash and does not pull. We have taken her to Currie Dog Park in Milwaukee, and she loves to run and explore in the woods. She is voice trained and comes when called.

Maisy is a super smart girl. During the first few weeks we had her home, we worked on many different things with her. She knows sit, stay, heel, lay down, off, come, no, shake-a-paw, roll over and "pound it, dog" where she puts her paw on top of your knuckles. She is crate trained, and knows the command "go to your bed". She goes right in her kennel and lays down on her bed, and stays quiet. That being said, she does prefer to sleep in bed with us, though she isn't a snuggler. She really enjoys being pet, and having her belly rubbed.

She eats Fromm Duck and Sweet Potato formula, 1/2 cup 3 times per day. She enjoys eating her food from a puzzle toy, otherwise she vacuums her food up without tasting or chewing, which makes her throw up. She has a bad habit of table and counter surfing, and we have been putting her in her kennel during mealtimes. We can't leave open drinks on end tables due to her drinking whatever is in them...she seems to enjoy coffee with cream the best :)

Maisy can be a bit shy with strangers. There is lots of barking, and she can be reluctant to approach them. The hair on her back does stand up when someone new comes into our home, and she has a big bark that is intimidating. I tend to walk her at night, and my husband and I often say that if anything happened to me on our walks, Maisy would not stand down.

Overall, I really think she is a good dog at her core. She is willing and eager to please, as obedient as a 9 month old puppy can be, and would make a great pet for an active family with no kids or older kids. She just can't handle the unpredictability of small children.

Maisy is living in the Milwaukee area until she finds her forever home. She can go to home with kids ages 12 and older.

An adoption application is required, and can be found on our website at and her adoption fee is $300.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maisy, a Madison Australian Shepherd/Blue Heeler puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Shepherd/Blue Heeler for sale in Madison, or seeking a Australian Shepherd/Blue Heeler puppy from a breeder in Madison.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Madison already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Madison breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Australian Shepherd/Blue Heeler breeders who help with Australian Shepherd/Blue Heeler rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Madison paves the way for another one to be saved.
