My story

Eddy is a herding dog enthusiast's delight. He appears to be a mix of Australian Shepherd and Australian Cattle Dog, which is known as a 'Texas heeler'. He is bred merle to merle, resulting in deafness.

He's a handsome and unique looking boy who is affectionate, loves to sit for cookies. He hails from the Apple Valley shelter, picked up as a stray. He's very affectionate, and he's a pretty gentle boy. He has a unique temperament. Eddie's kind of on his own planet. We find his quirkiness to be really endearing and he's grateful for every minute of attention. He's an unshakably happy and calm boy.

Eddie came from the shelter with a rash that turned out to be a nasty staph infection. It spread like wildfire and he lost most of his coat. The infection is finally gone after treating it several times, leaving Eddie with a thin coat. He takes a very inexpensive supplement to help with his coat.

To meet Eddie, please complete our on-line adoption application:


Please note that we are unable to respond to inquiries, emails or phone calls. Our adoption process starts with completion/submission of an application for adoption. All applications are reviewed as quickly as we can, and our adoption process is not first come, first served. We select our adoptive homes according to what our dogs/puppies require. If you are selected as an appropriate match, you will be contacted to set an appointment to visit the Ranch and meet Eddie.
