Raleigh is a 7 week old Lab/Heeler mix male who currently weighs 7.9 pounds. His mother is a gorgeous Blue Heeler, but all of the puppies look mostly Lab, apparently from their dad’s side. Raleigh is black with tons of gorgeous blue ticking on his chest, his chin, and the tips of his toes. He is also a little fuzzier than his siblings, so he may have more of a Heeler coat. He is very outgoing, curious, and loveable. He is one of the smallest in the litter and will probably be as large as a small Lab when fully grown. Raleigh was born here in our rescue and has gotten the very best of care since Day 1. He has been raised in the house along with his siblings, other adult dogs, and has been exposed to all of the regular household noises including loud TV from Dallas Cowboys football and a bizarre presidential election season, so he’s ready for anything. When he hears a vacuum cleaner running, instead of running away, he runs towards it to investigate. He loves to be held and handled and doesn’t mind having his nails trimmed—he’s just happy to be held and loved. We are doing everything possible to make Raleigh and his siblings very well socialized and easy to handle so they will grow up to be the most stable, well balanced dogs possible. We already know they are smart—they pick up on new routines instantaneously as with their crate training, beginning house training, and running out of their kennel into the kitchen for their meals. Raleigh has had a perfect start and is ready for his new family to take over and help him become the great dog he is meant to be. Raleigh has received 3 dewormings, all age-appropriate vaccinations, is microchipped, and will be started on flea and heartworm prevention before adoption. He is available for a $250 adoption donation on a Neuter Contract that requires his adopter has him neutered by 7 months of age. He will be available after December 2nd, and if interested please read our Adoption Policies before submitting an application, both of which can be found at www.twistedbranchaussies.com.
