Important Note

Thumper is best friends with Dexter. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
http://www.valleydogs.org/dexter.html -- Thumper is looking for a new home along with his brother Dexter. They were originally rescued together as puppies, but unfortunately they are now looking for a new home because of their last owner losing their housing and dumping them at the Humane Society in another state. Thumper is the brindle dog that is so cute squinting in the photo and Dexter is the tan/blond dog.

They can be a little reserved at first due to be shuffled around after being abandoned, but open up very fast. They are currently in a boarding facility since we are unable to find a foster at this time. Once they know you they open up quick and love people. Due to the cattle dog or Heeler in them, they are herding dogs so we don't recommend them in a home with young children. If you are looking for a mellow set of dogs that will be more than fine as a pair alone in a house while you work, they will be perfect for you. Due to their age, temperament, and bond as brothers they will be great in most homes once someone gives them the chance they deserve since they are very mellow and easy to care for. They love to play ball and take walks and are social with other non-aggressive dogs. Our goal is to find them a home together since they were originally adopted together and are very bonded.

We know that there is Australian Heeler / Cattle dog and maybe some Lab in the breeding. They are each about 50 pounds. They are both microchipped, up to date on shots and fixed.

If you are interested please fill out an adoption interest form found on valleydogs.org and email brittanyladrech@yahoo.com with any questions.

About Valley Dogs

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a pending non-profit, no-kill rescue organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming adoptable cats and dogs. We have over 40 years of combined rescue experience and knowledge.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a kennel / shelter type of facility. We believe the most effective and successful way to match families and pets is to foster them in our own homes. Ultimately fostering our rescue animals in homes rather than a kennel environment allows us to give you complete information on the pet's behavior and how well he / she will fit with your family and lifestyle.

Our Adoption Process...

At Valley Dogs we make every effort to place the right animal in the right home. To aid in this goal, we use trained Adoption Consultants to help you select the best match for your lifestyle. You will meet with an Adoption Consultant and discuss your lifestyle, activity level, expectations, likes/dislikes, and past experiences with animals. Your consultant will then recommend the best match for your family and your lifestyle.
