My name is Parker and I am a handsome Blue Heeler. I am about 2 years old (as of 5-1-17) and weigh approximately 41 pounds. I am currently in a foster home and seem to be house trained and very well mannered. I do great with all humans, but I do have herding in my blood, so I may nip at heels and small children may not be the best for me. I get along with other dogs. I can sometimes have "barrier tension" so I act foolish when a person or a dog comes up to the fence. But once you are in my presence, you're my best friend. I am just a great guy! I like to chase cats though, so I should not be in a home or around any felines please.
My adoption fee is $185.00. I am neutered, up to date on vaccines, kept on heartworm preventative and microchipped.
*PLEASE SUBMIT AN APPLICATION AT RURALANIMALRESCUEEFFORT.ORG
**An application and home visit are required prior to adoption. All of our pets are or will be spayed/neutered, up to date on all vaccines and micro-chipped prior to adoption. Please complete the application on our website and we will call you to answer any questions you may have. Our ability to perform out of state adoptions is limited and reviewed on a case by case basis. If you are not in TN, please ask us about the potential of adopting the specific animal you are interested in.
Our adoption fees not only help the animal being adopted, but they also help to cover heart-worm treatments and other treatable ailments that many animals, that would otherwise be euthanized, need to be made available for adoption. Thank you for choosing to adopt, foster, or aid in the rescue efforts of RARE! Please visit www.RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org for foster and adoption applications or for additional information.
***Please Note*** The breeds noted are guesses on the part of the volunteers of RARE based on the physical characteristics of the particular animal. We are not breed experts and cannot afford to perform DNA tests; therefore, the noted breeds may not be exact.
