We raise Queensland Heelers

and

Australian Stumpy Tail Heelers

(standard size and miniature)

***Scroll down for updates on upcoming litters*** 


I have been raising Queensland Heelers for well over 20 years now, and love the breed.  

They are my pets and are only kenneled during heat, to ensure the purity of the breed, 

and just prior to whelping to keep mom and pups safe, during and after whelping.  

Dams are allowed in/out of the kennel while pups stay safely confined to the kennel.

We have property here for my heelers to run on... and they do.  I simply oversee mating

 to perpetuate this amazing breed.  I currently have 12 heelers here on the property.

 9 females (7 standards, 2 miniatures) and 2 breeding sires, plus Grandma Aniston, who is spayed.  

allow them to breed as they come into heat, and monitor breeding, but there is no way to rush this process, 

unfortunately, as each female will only come into heat every 6 months (twice per year).

 So... it may take time for your heeler puppy to be born, if you reserve (or ask to be on the interested list). 

Gestation (pregnancy) is about 62 days, which is included in the 6 months between heats 

(i.e., 2 months gestation, plus approximately 4 months to come into heat again).  

If a female does not take when bred again, it is usually because she needs a break...and I don't begrudge her that break. 

Your patience is greatly appreciated.  It will be worth the wait, I promise.  

Note: You do not have to pay in advance/reserve... if you want to keep looking (or are uncomfortable with paying in advance for an unborn pup), 

you may just email me and I will put you on an "interested" (not reserved/no payment necessary) list.

I go to the reservation folder first when pups are born (starting with the oldest reservation), and then go to the "interested" folder 

if I have pups that don't fit reservations or extra pups after reservations are exhausted (before listing pups on this site for sale to the public).

Once you have asked to be on the interested list, if you cannot find a pup you like elsewhere, 

you can always reserve later, and go into the reservation folder, moving up in the folder each time a litter is born. 

...or you may simply remain on the "interested" list until I have a pup available to purchase (though this could take awhile). 

I certainly may have a pup available at some point that doesn't fit my reservations (e.g., dam/sire, color, gender, markings, tail, timing).

                                                  These pups will then be offered to the interested list (on a first to respond basis) via email, before being listed on this site for sale.

of one of my females, years ago, playing with her pups.

                                                                                               as you are agreeing to wait patiently for your puppy to be born 

                                                                                                                            (in order of reservation), and

**Scroll down for pictures and additional information on the miniatures

Aniston, Clooney, Monroe, Bonnie
in the above photo

Standard pups are $395 for a male and $450 for a female
Miniature pups are $495 for a male, and $550 for a female ($100 more)
-Paypal buttons above reflect all 4 of those amounts
-The Miniature and Standard folders are separate reservation folders 

*You may "duplicate" your reservation and be in both folders if you are flexible on size,
essentially saying that you will take whichever size comes first, and going to the back of both folders 
when you reserve as a new reservation in each folder (to be fair to those reserved, if you decide to duplicate
at any point after you originally reserved, you must go to the back of the "new" size folder).
You will then be removed from both folders when you get your puppy.

You can use the Paypal links above to reserve (scroll back up toward the top for Paypal buttons)
using a credit card/ATM to pay in full (or mail a check if you prefer)...or you may split the cost of the pup 
into 2 payments using a credit card/ATM with Venmo (@Tina-Lewis-54) or paypal (friend to friend) or use my paypal if you don't have one 
at www.paypal.me/tinalewis (or mail a check if you prefer).
(a $5 fee per payment must be added to the reservation cost, and the balance should be paid ASAP,
but must be paid immediately when offered a pup or the pup cannot be held for you).   


If you prefer to mail a check, make check payable to: 
Tina Lewis
19802 Avenue 376
Woodlake, CA  93286

*Keep in mind that the reservation date for the folder will be the date I actually receive your 
payment in the mail, and you will be notified of receipt (note: along with your check, please include a phone number and 
email address, in addition to any specifics you may have about what you are looking for in a pup).

PLEASE NOTE: We have a no refund policy, for obvious reasons,
so please read How It Works before you reserve, as reserving is only one option.
You may also simply email me and ask to be on the "interested" list (no payment required).
Please click on the link highlighted in green above to read, before you reserve.

RESERVING: We will get you a pup as quickly as we can but when you reserve for a pup you are
stating that you understand that (a) you are reserving for a pup
that hasn't been born yet,  (b) that you 
have read and understand How It Works (our Terms and Conditions),
and (c) that you agree to wait patiently for the arrival of your pup, in order of reservation, which could take several litters 
to get what you have asked for, depending upon how many are reserved ahead of you, 
what they reserved for, what you are reserving for, if my females take when bred (sometimes they need a break), and what is born in each litter
(i.e., how many, gender, color, markings, tail/no tail, dam/sire). 

There are many variables that I cannot control, including:
Which dam comes into heat (and when), and if she takes, how many pups are born in each litter,
the gender (seems like females are always born less often, and reserved for more), color (red, blue, etc.), markings (mask, patches, spots, tan), the size, or, in some litters, 
if they will be born with a tail or be born stumpy (I can dock a tail, but cannot add one, of course, to a pup born without one). 
In addition, I cannot know who in front of you might not respond, or may decline when contacted/offered 
a pup (opting to wait... for varying personal reasons or timing), or if any duplicated reservations will be taking a pup (being removed from both folders).  
These variables all affect how quickly I get to you in the reservation folder and simply cannot be predicted (e.g., I could have 25 reservations in the
folder and 8 pups born...and work my way down to the 20th reservation (or more) in the folder, due to gender/color/markings, or dam/sire 
in a litter not fitting what is reserved for, or because people decline or don't respond).  
I just can't know any of these variables ahead of time, and therefore cannot know when you will get a pup.
Just know that I always go in order of reservation.

Email  me with any questions you might have after reading "How It Works" by
clicking on the link above, 
as many of your questions may be answered there.

Note:  There is currently (July, 2021) a bit of a wait (8 months or so...), so as long as you can be patient, I will still accept your reservation, 
allowing you to move up in the reservation folder as pups are born.  But, if you would rather continue to search elsewhere,
I can just add you to the interested list (no payment required) and contact you once reservations go down, or if there
is ever a pup that becomes available that doesn't fit those who are reserved.


Our Breeding males:  

Shelton Blue (Pfeiffer's line)



Picture taken January, 2021
Midler, Jillian, Sierra, and Blue


Shelton Blue is from the same line as Pfeiffer  (Pfeiffer's dam is his granddam), so he is continuing her line

He is also a smaller heeler, at about 35 pounds, and very playful and active-good with the kids and other dogs (playful).


Clooney 

Our bigger sire (about 50 pounds or so-he is thick/big boned, but average-standard height): 

He is continuing Aniston and Bandit-McConaughey lines 

Third generation Sire 

as a youngster (above) 

Clooney 
(January, 2021)

Aniston and McConaughey's son (Bandit's grandson-Bandiwas my original sire, 20 plus years ago) 

Clooney is playful, friendly, and very attentive/focused/easy to train, and loves kids and people 

-the FedEx delivery man leans over the fence to pet him and give him his treat.

He has spots like Aniston (he is her son) and often throws them.  

He was born with a tail (docked now)

He was sired by McConaughe

Parentage of Cloonewas confirmed through Animal Genetics 

(only because Tatum was a sire at that time as well and I wanted to be sure)

  
 Clooney's sire, McConaughe
with Foxy, a daughter of Senseney 
(Senseney is the dam in "cute pups" video at top of the page) 
and his sire Bandit 
(all 4 are deceased now)

                                     
                       Clooney's Dam: Aniston  (spayed now)                      Clooney's Sire: McConaughey (he was 80#s)

*Aniston (55#s) is at my side, all day, every day (she is 13 years old now).

Aniston (front-left) taken at 12 yrs

and 
One of her first litters (of 12) below
She was an excellent mom for several years.

  ***The white of newborn heelers begins to fill in with blue or red ticking at about 3 weeks of age,

and tan paws/muzzle/chest, on tri-color blues, begins to show then too, but any markings they are born with remain,

                                        and the "Bentley" mark (white star on forehead) will appear as well, once the ticking fills in, at about 3 weeks of age.                                                

Clooney is amazing with kids!!!

He literally thinks he is a kid and loves to play with 

(and boss) the kids out on the lawn

Example: A red pup...Sissy (by Clooney )
She had lots of the red markings at birth
and the white filled in with red "ticking"


Our Current Standard Size Breeding Females:

Monroe
(about 45 pounds)

Monroe is a Blue (almost liver colored) Australian Stumpy Tail Heeler

 (she has no tan, but throws pups with tan bred to Clooney)

She throws reds and blues...(some with and some w/o tan)

She also throws stumpy tailed pups...and some with tails.

She is unrelated to any of our other dogs.

Very sweet and playful, but calm and quiet-loves the kids too.

Very focused and trainable...well-behaved (always goes with me to feed the horses).

...from a pup



At 3.5 mos old (above and below)



She is about 45 pounds now that she is grown

  Our Miniature Line:
                                                                                                        (You may scroll down to skip this "miniature" 
                                                                                                       section and continue with additional information
                                                                                                                     on our standard size heelers).

Our miniature line begins with Tatum (a blue stumpy tail male) who sired Midler (20#s and short/small). 

  Midler was a stumpy tail like her 100% Australian Stumpy Tail heeler sire. 

Midler passed in May, 2021, but Ballerini is her daughter and Stefani is her granddaughter.

Midler was exclusively bred to Shelton Blue (about 35#s) for a stumpy tail line of miniature pups (some born with tails)

they ranged in size, but no bigger than about 32#s (most were smaller/short/petite). 

Her pups were about 85% heeler and considerably smaller than an average heeler (average heeler weighs about 45#s).  

She threw some traditional blue pups with tan

 Her first litter (born 4/9/18) gave us  

Ballerini who is very compact/small/short, but is a traditional blue heeler with tan

Ballerini (22#s) is always bred to Clooney... 

for about 93% Queensland Heeler pups that are "miniature" 

Miniatures are sold separately from standards with a separate reservation folder.


Midler 

In the above photo, Midler is in the back of the pack (middle)
with Hawn (left), and Shelton (far right)

 


 
Midler
Picture above was taken of her with her dam 

Midler had some blue ticking on her chest/neck area and buttocks area 
Shelton (100% heeler) put that blue ticking back into Midler's pups
...more than half of them...for 85% heelers...but miniature.

Midler...running fast!
(Tough to get a picture of her standing still, but her ears stand straight up in true heeler fashion)
This dog was so fun and playful and just loved people, especially children...and me.

**Midler's dam (fixed now and pictured with her above), was tested by Animal Genetics lab to verify her breed/genetics. 
She is part cattle dog (they listed ACD/Queensland Heeler, and "other cowdog" on the results paperwork).  
Tatum was 100% heeler and blue (with tan)...
an Australian Stumpy Tail heeler.  
That makes her pups, by Shelton
about 85% heeler 
(see Ballerini below)
, but much smaller (some are stumpy tail).  
In all of her litters, Midler produced blue heeler pups that are miniature Australian Stumpy Tail heelers/tailed heelers, but also produced a couple 
of pups in each litter that looked more like her and usually had blue ticking on chest/belly (some stumpy/some with tails).  
We kept a blue miniature female (see Ballerini below) from her first litter, in order
 to create a line of miniature pups that are about 93% heeler (with Clooney as sire).
We then kept Stefani from Ballerini's 2020 litter.  
Stefani is a miniature and will produce pups that are over 96% heeler.

Introducing...

Ballerini 

(She is 85% Queensland Heeler, but is a miniature heeler at 22#s)

We kept Ballerini, from Midler (20#s) x Shelton (35#s), to breed to our 100% Queensland Heeler, Clooney
for about 93% Queensland Heelers that are "miniature" ...and from our stumpy tail line.
Her sire is Shelton Blue and 100% Queensland Heeler (Pfeiffer's line).

Full siblings to Ballerini above
(Midler x Shelton litters)

The original sire of the Miniature line is Tatum


Tatu
(Midler's sire)

An average heeler (about 40-45 pounds)

He stays lean and active, friendly and playful 

He is all blue with tan markings and was born with a stumpy tail.

He is an Australian Stumpy Tail Heeler

and the sire of Midler, who was also born with no tail.

  

He is now neutered.
His granddaughter, Ballerini, and great granddaughter, Stefani
will continue his line of heelers (both are miniature).

After you read

HOW IT WORKS 

Reservations are non-refundable... and you do not have to reserve to get a pup

You may simply email me and be on the "interested" list (no payment required).

You will then be notified before the general public, when a pup is available to purchase 


Air TRANSPORTATION

* Pup can fly at 8 weeks old after Vet Exam and requires Airline approved kennel, bowls, bedding, water, food, paperwork, transport to the airport and the Vet on my end, which I can purchase and accomplish for you ($100 covers everything).

*Try Delta Airlines or United first as they seem to work well.  Plane tickets are around $215 or so, and fairly easy to arrange-out of Fresno, CA.-I may have to pay on this end, but you make the reservation on your end (coordinate this with me so I am sure to be available for Vet appointment and transport to airport) and pay the ticket amount to them, or to me (airlines vary on this).  If they require me to pay for the flight at the counter, you can pay me via Paypal right before the day of the flight (in addition to the reimbursement for the medium size kennel, bowls, bedding, etc. required by the airline). This cost is $95 and is paid to me so that I can have these items purchased for your pup, and ready before the flight.  Vet exam is paid directly to the Vet (around $54) by credit card or Care Credit Card, or mail them a check in advance along with all shipping information (your name, phone number, and address/destination of pup, for the health exam certificate).

*Alaskan Airlines to Washington was $184 in 2012 when I flew a pup once-you can try them also.

Note: I will drive your pup to the Vet for the exam and to the Airport for you (55 minute drive for Airport and 15 minutes to the Vet- each way, for each of these trips)-free of charge (usually at 3 am for the airport), which is fine by me so no worries when they give you that early flight time. ;)

-a medium kennel and feed/water dish is required by the airline and I can get that for you and you can reimburse via paypal at Paypal ($100 for all-includes airline required feed/water dish for air travel, blanket, absorbent padding, baggie of food, water bottle and paperwork).

-a Veterinary exam is $54 at Lone Oak Veterinary Clinic and they will take a credit card or CARE CREDIT over the phone (or they will allow you to mail a check in advance)-Notify me you have done this and then I will call and set the appointment according to my schedule (and pup reaching 8 weeks of age) and take the pup there for the exam.
 
-your call to the Vet is to give them payment for the exam, AND shipping information required by the airline for the Health Certificate.  
Their number is 559-732-4818 and you can check out their website by clicking on the clinic name above.

Tatum  

as a pup 


at 3 weeks old  

...and about 8 weeks old

                 

This guy was born without a tail.  He is a stumpy tail heeler (neutered now).


  
Tatum's Dam, Pocket 
(Midler's granddam, and Ballerini's great-granddam)
This dam was a small blue stumpy tail (about 30 pounds)


 These lines (carried on by Midler, and Ballerini) are Australian Stumpy Tail Heelers 

and Pocket, Tatumand Ballerini are also registered with the

  Working Stock Dog World Registry

Usually about half the litter (or more) is born without a tail-the rest have tails and can be docked upon request...or left as they are naturally born.



Heelers are born white and get color at about 3 weeks of age

The ears stand up from 3 weeks to 3 months of age

Pfeiffer (below) and a litter of her pups at birth (all blues)-but born white

Pfeiffer unexpectedly passed away on 1-31-2018.  She was 9 years old 

Shelton Blue is the same line as Pfeiffer (her dam is his granddam)

so Ballerini is also from this amazing line (and Tatum's stumpy tail line).

More pics of my Females and their past litters:

Swift:

  

Swift (now deceased) is medium in size...verrrry sweet and loving (loves kids and everyone's puppies). 

      


Aniston: 

 

 

Aniston (spayed now) is my tallest female and goes camping, sticks close, and loves to go.  Her last litter was August, 2016.

  Aniston's October 30th, 2012 pups at their new homes:

   

  ...and I'm never going out in the snow again!


Pfeiffer:

a smaller blue female-she weighed about 29 pounds (Shelton Blue is her nephew)


This is Bingo...an all white pup from Pfeiffer's first litter. 

He never got the black hairs (ticking) that make a heeler blue.


The white heeler is a rare color of heeler  and Pfeiffer has now thrown a few in her litters but there is NO WAY TO KNOW WHICH PUP WILL BE WHITE (or cream), SINCE ALL PUPS ARE BORN WHITE..they normally get color at about 3 weeks of age.  

Bingo had no color but some get a hint of tan on ears and undercoat.  The pup in her second litter got some tan on ears/back-it was very light

If a solid white one is in the litter (usually known by 3-4 wks old), it will probably already belong to someone by the time we realize it is a "white" pup.   If they are ok with a white one, the pup is theirs...if they would rather have a blue, they will move to the next blue pup available in the next litter.  This is up to the owner of the pup, of course.

If a "white" pup becomes available to sell...I will notify those who have indicated they want a shot at a white one, reserved folks first, and then those who just emailed to indicate interest in a white one.  It will be first come, first serve at this point.

*Note: I haven't had a white pup in several years,

but coats of pups vary from light to dark (red and blue).  

 


Sarandon:

This female was very light blue with red and blue speckles.  She threw blue pups and an occasional red one in the litter.  

Some blues will have typical tan markings, some will not (blue without tan).  Most of her pups had many colors.  

No way to know at birth which pups will be light and which will be a more typical darker blue, ...or which will end up with tan markings, or have a chocolate color or ?.  They get color at about 3-4 weeks of age and this is when we can tell; no real way to reserve for a chocolate or white, or light...unless you decline a pup after it is obvious it will not get the color you desire.  You can specify your interest in one, or specify you do not want tan legs/chest and I can try to work that out but there is no guarantee...you can always back out of a pup you have chosen, and wait for the next litter, at any time before they go home.

A pup of Sarandon's, and one of Foxy's-all grown up... at home.


 Note: Most of Sarandon's blue pups ended up blue with no tan (which gives the appearance of a black heeler).

Chesney is a granddaughter of Sarandon.


At about 10 days old:


   

                                                                                                                  
I call this pup a "chocolate" heeler...no tan on paws or chest or face...just a blue heeler that turned chocolate 

Sarandon, had a brother this color!

Or once in awhile one appears to be white with some traces of black around ears.  They are not quite 5 wks in the pictures below.  

She always had colorful litters.

   
    

EMAIL if you are interested in reserving for a pup from one of the upcoming litters or reserving specifically for a particular dam's litter.


Reserving ahead gets you a pup quicker, but please realize I don't control litter size, color or gender, or if they "take" when they are bred; this is left to nature.

    2 of Aniston's pups at home


Dakota (she was rescued at 1 yr old and was half Queensland, spayed, and passed away at 17 years old).  

 She used to roam around the 30 acre ranch at will, but once she lost her hearing she was put safely into our backyard.

She was the "Mayor of Elderwood"


Palomino ( my baby... and a real boy, not a dog)...Corgi/Lab mix??? 

He was adopted at 6 wks old and then neutered

Palomino finding some sunshine in his last days

RIP (March 17, 2004 to February 20, 2017)

 Pali...You were truly a real boy to me. 

    

Palomino

Short, tough, and brave was he

This boy who was a dog

His home with us was meant to be

And we were blessed by God

 

Short in stature, but tall of mind

His heart could not be beat

Big dogs like him are hard to find

With legs that didn’t reach

 

Boating, Camping, a race around the tent

This real boy had some fun

Bury a doughnut, and off he went

Fast as his legs could run

 

His grin, it went from ear to ear

The boy could do no wrong

His dog days soon turn into years

We loved him for so long

 

Goodbye to you, my Pali boy

I loved you like a son

Rest your eyes and hurt no more

Your adventures are all done

 

In the mountains somewhere

Or buried on the shore

I know there is a treasure there

Where you have gone before

 

Tina Lewis (mom) ‘2017’

Chloe was a daughter of Senseney by Bandit



  

    


Our Females and their past litters:

Senseney: (Deceased now but not forgotten); red female


This is Senseney, she was such a good mom, very athletic and energetic.  Loved to fetch, and play catch with the kids with little pebbles, when no ball was available.  Loved to catch squirrels and gophers and mice.  She was very lean and stayed very active.  Foxy was her daughter and is also now deceased.  McConaughey sired these pups and is gone now too.

McConaughey's Dad:  Where it all began...


GRANDPA BANDIT


 Proud Grandpa! 


Bandit was sleeping and was accidentally run over in our driveway and had to be put down due to his injuries on Monday, October 16th, 2006.

I should thank Rick Tucker, DVM  for going above and beyond to help me that day.

Bandit is greatly missed.


The Good News is...We were fortunate enough, to get McConaughey from a litter that Bandit fathered about 2 weeks before he died, out of a really nice red female heeler that had been mated to him weeks earlier.  Clooney was just a year old when his sire, McConaughey passed.
