Steeler's Story...
Steeler is a 5-6 year old blue heeler mix. This love bug has had a very rough past. A rescue in Kentucky took him in after he was hit by a car. The poor boy had been suffering for a week before the rescue was able to help. He had to have immediate surgery on his left hip and was transferred to Pfister Animal Hospital the next day. The rehab team at Pfister Animal Hospital did everything that they could to try to save his left front leg which had nerve damage from being hit by the car. Unfortunately, his leg could not be saved and had to be amputated. Through it all Steeler has been a very willing patient and has had an incredible spirit. He is incredibly smart and learns very quickly. Even when he was only able to use two legs, he was not going to be stopped from doing anything any other dog could do. Now with three good legs he is truly unstoppable. Steeler loves people and being near them, the closer the better. His attitude and spirit have been an inspiration to all of us at Pfister Animal Hospital and we can't wait for him to find a home with a family that recognizes that he has no handicap and will challenge you to keep up.
Steeler is microchipped, spayed and up to date on his shots and vaccines. Please complete an online application at www.rescueAhart.org if you'd like to meet him. Thanks!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Steeler, a Cincinnati Blue Heeler dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Blue Heeler for sale in Cincinnati, or seeking a Blue Heeler dog from a breeder in Cincinnati.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cincinnati already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Cincinnati breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Blue Heeler breeders who help with Blue Heeler rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cincinnati paves the way for another one to be saved.
