Talk now about how to select a blue heeler. When you're looking at a specific breed of dog I encourage you to always do a lot of research. Get to know somebody who has a specific breed you're interested in, read up more about them. Get as much information as you can. Make sure that this is a dog, a breed of dog who is likely to fit in well with your family now, and for the next fifteen years. You're going to have this animal with you for quite a while, and dogs bond quickly to us often and very well, and separating them at some point during their life is potentially extremely difficult for them. Molly here is is probably a cattle dog mix, cause' she fits a lot of the characteristics of the cattle dog in terms of size and temperament, but with the blue heeler you want to take into consideration what was their original function. They're very active dogs generally, and anything I say should be taken into context with individual dogs varying from the general breed standard. But, they like a lot of activity. They're generally easy to train. They could potentially be dogs who would herd, and then in that sense might be difficult with other animals, but Molly, for example, gets along great with other dogs, don't you Molly? But, all of those things taken into consideration, if it's a dog you're interested in in having, a breed you're interested in having you would want to be careful in your selection if you're if you're attempting to get an example specifically of the breed, or consider a reputable rescue for the purchase of the animal.
