Facts about Miley

  • Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler Mix
  • Color: Merle
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Australian Cattle Dogs (and Blue Heelers) are a perfect choice for those who are searching for an extremely smart and loyal family dog. Of utmost importance...they're famous for their great temperaments and extremely loving and snuggly ways. They're known to be trustworthy and gentle with family members and other family pets. Since herding dogs require exercise and absolutely love being with their people...if a hike is the order of the day - count them in! These dogs are known to run joyfully and energetically through the Colorado mountains...and then crash on the couch snuggling close to their favorite humans and canines.

Miley's sweet nature is just waiting to be enjoyed and appreciated...she makes close playmates everywhere she goes. Miley is outgoing and social and that means everyone she meets ultimately becomes a friend. You know when a loved one approaches, Miley's tail starts the greeting and it wiggles up through her entire body ending into a smile. And if a spot on the couch is available, up Miley goes to cuddle and snuggle and let you know the level of her devotion. Miley is such a wonderful being...we think she represents the best qualities of the herding dog breed. At about 11/2-2 years old and 28 lbs, Miley is leaving behind the neglect and lack of love that made up her early life. She has become a fuzzy ball of good-will that loves to please - the happier her family is with her behavior, the more she shines with her accomplishments. We would like to see Miley in a home that includes her in family time and activities...she's very social and would thrive in a family that truly loves her and considers her a very important family member. Miley would be a wonderful companion for retirees who have the time and desire to be best friends with a truly adorable young girl. Miley would also do well with a family with gentle, dog-loving kids who want to make her a true member of the family. Miley doesn't require another dog to be happy...but does enjoy her canine relationships with kind and gentle dogs.

Miley will be arriving on transport in Boulder on Saturday 10/7/16. Applications are currently being accepted and can be found at If you're interested in this sweet, cuddly and super-smart pup, please fill out and return to, fax to 303-443-7730 or mail a hard copy to Farfel's Farm 906 Pearl Street Boulder, CO 80302.

About Farfel's Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We own a pet boutique named Farfel's Farm on Pearl Street in Boulder, CO. We have had the good fortune to find our niche in the Boulder community and experience success. We felt it very important to "pay it forward" in gratitude for our good luck. We couldn't think of a better endeavor than to save dogs who were out of time in the southern states, yet had been identified with great temperaments. We dedicate our efforts to their good health and ultimate wonderful, permanent homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Pets are transported from the southern states approximately twice per month. Almost 100% of the time, the dogs are spoken for as a result of adoption applications that can be referenced under Adoption at We study the applications. If the app indicates there is a match, followed up by a home visit and reference checks, the process moves to the next step. The adopter is committing to a 2-week foster (of course the dog can be returned at any time prior), and can then choose to finalize the adoption.

Our Adoption Process...

All potential adoptions start out as a 2-week mandatory foster period. During that time, Farfel's covers all vet issues if one of Farfel's rescue vets is used. We also serve as a support with trainers and behaviorists on board for questions. An Adoption Application and an Adoption Contract must be completed before any dog can begin their 2-week foster. Our average adoption fee runs about $395. This amount serves to cover vetting, spay/neuter, all vaccinations, heart worm testing, temperament testing and transport. Our dogs come from Texas, Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma and rural Colorado.
