Where To Get Texas Heeler Puppies

Unfortunately, since this is a designer dog, the American Kennel Club does not recognize Texas Heeler as a dog breed. So, if you decide to look for a reputable breeder, you’ll have to do your research. Remember, you’ll be able to tell an ethical breeder from the rest because they’ll do the following: Morgan…

  • Treat the dogs and the puppies like family, allowing them to live in the breeder’s home
  • Health screen and genetically test the parents before breeding and then test the puppies
  • Have health documents and family tree history prepared for you to take home upon adoption
  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date with their vaccinations

In addition, a good breeder will be available to answer all of your questions about the breed, the parents, the puppies, the process, or the breeder’s experience and reputation. Also, they’ll want to meet with you in person and allow you to meet the parents and the litter before adoption.

If you find a breeder who doesn’t do the above, they might be a backyard breeder or a puppy mill. Avoid these breeders since they don’t breed the dogs in healthy or safe conditions. Also, they’re more interested in making a profit rather than finding good homes for the puppies.

Alternatively, you can call your local animal shelter or rescue organization to see if they have Texas Heeler puppies, adults, or seniors available for adoption. You can gain a new furry friend, all the while saving a dog’s life. Puppsnstuff…
