Thanks so much! Besides the border collie, we think he might have some German Shepard in him also. He's almost 9 months. We finally got him sleeping off the bed. He's just a huge baby. Red used to get up in the middle of the night all of the time so we had to adjust our feeding time. We did a lot of research and determined he acts just like a heeler almost to a T.
Do you have pictures of Lorelai? I would love to see them. She must be the cutest!
Welcome to the team! Your heeler is beautiful...looks like he has a bit of border collie in him. He's one big puppy! Mine, Lorelai, will be 11 weeks tomorrow and is also extremely hyper. She sleeps in a box beside my side of the bed, and usually wakes up around 3AM to potty but sometimes sleeps straight through until around 4:30. I just get up with her then. That's great that you rescued him, poor thing. He certainly doesn't look like he's lacking from food now. How old is he?

Hi there! My name is Susan and I'm 24. My husband is stationed here at Fort Hood so that's where we are for the time being. We have 3 dogs, 2 are adopted.
One of the dogs we adopted is gorgeous cattle dog/heeler mix. His markings are gorgeous and we drove 4 hours to get him. We just fell in love with his picture online. He's still a puppy and extremely hyper. He goes 90 miles a minute all day, but when he sleeps at night, I swear he falls into a deep coma. It's like trying to move a huge sack of potatoes out of the bed. :] He's a little plump. He was skin and bones when we took him in. They found him wandering the streets so we've definitely fed him enough. He's very loving and sweet and just wants to be loved.
