EARL's Story...
EARL is a very special 3-yr-old blue heeler mix whose people surrendered him reluctantly when their lives took an unexpected turn, and they had to move to Chicago. He now lives at a dog refuge facility with many other dogs. He is neutered, fully-vaccinated, heartworm negative and current on monthly flea, tick and heartworm preventives. He is house-trained, crate-trained and leash-trained. He knows how to use a doggie door (although it has to be a tall one). Earl will sit for a treat. He likes his MilkBones! He stands about 28 inches at the shoulder and weighs 70-75 lb. There is much about him that is "special". He was one of a large litter of pups dumped in a remote rural area with their momma in 2010. Earl is deaf (not uncommon for blue heelers) but functions as well as hearing dogs in most ways. He is highly intelligent. He just needs someone willing to communicate with him via hand signals. He knows signals for "sit" and "back/stay". His personality is very blue heeler. He wants to be in control of "the flock". Living in a household of 12+ dogs is very hard for him because he wants to control the behavior of the other dogs and does not want to share his people with so many others. He is cat-aggressive. Although he can tolerate other dogs, he would probably be happiest as an only dog. Earl adores his people. He is initially shy with strangers but warms up once he knows a person is safe. He is strikingly handsome and has a thick velour-like coat. For more information on this very dear boy, please contact Janel Miller at dogrefuge@gmail.com.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

EARL, a Paron Blue Heeler/Hound (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Blue Heeler/Hound (Unknown Type) for sale in Paron, or seeking a Blue Heeler/Hound (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Paron.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Paron 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 Paron 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/Hound (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Blue Heeler/Hound (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Paron paves the way for another one to be saved.
