This wonderful dog is called Blue Bandit and he is a dog that you will never forget once you are in his presence even if for a few minutes.  This handsomely unique Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler is most definitely a one-of-a-kind dog.  We learned of this 9 year old boy who weighs 40 pounds, while he was standing in the lobby at the vet’s office back in February of this year.  It seems that his original owner had died (he was always kept outside) and the children brought this boy in to be put to sleep.  They could not be bothered with a dog that was this old and had heartworms as well.  They would not treat him and therefore he was not wanted.  Some kind lady in the lobby knew of foster mom Claudia’s love for Cattle Dogs.  She called Claudia and from there Critter Cavalry Rescue and now foster mom Claudia made the plan to take him home and get him well and healed from the heartworms.  Blue Bandit deserved a second chance at a better and more loving life.  This boy is so precious, calm, easy going and just plain old emotional therapy to be around.  He would lay by your side all day long on the front porch, the back porch, the TV room, by your bed or watch you cook in the kitchen.  He is dog friendly, loves people and he is the perfect Southern Gentleman’s dog.  Blue Bandit is on some heart meds daily that don’t cost much and he will need them for the rest of his life…which could be many years to come.  The Cattle Dog is a hearty and resilient breed that not only lives a long life but also loves their people to such depths as to follow you to the ends of the earth if you need them there.  Their love and devotion is beyond compare in the dog world.  Blue Bandit will wrap you and your heart up in a nice neat bow that will never come unraveled.  He will be a dog that you never forget in your lifetime.  We certainly won’t forget him either even after he is adopted.   PLEASE NOTE:  Our dogs are transported from Tennessee to meeting places in the states where we have posted.  Further information about us is given on our Adopt-A-Pet site.  The adoption fees vary and will be provided as well as noted on the application you receive.  Contact us at 615-661-5333 or ccrnewengland@gmail.com

We are a group of dedicated rescue people who want to save as many dogs and cats from the local shelters before they are euthanized. On the average....there are only 1 out of 10 animals that get adopted from a shelter. We are dedicated to helping increase pet adoptions by offering a shelter animal a foster home to go to while awaiting an adoptive family to find them on our Petfinder website.
