We raise Queensland Heelers


Australian Stumpy Tail Heelers

(both standard size...and miniature)

These dogs are my pets, and are usually only kenneled during heat cycles, to ensure the purity of the breed, 

or just prior to whelping, to keep mom and newborn pups safe. 

We have several acres here for them to run on at our home site ...and they do.  

I track cycles and regulate mating to perpetuate this amazing breed.  

I currently have 7 standard size breeding females (dams), 3 miniature dams, and one sire 

Aniston (reference dam, pictures below) has been my sidekick for over 14 years 

and is the granddam and great-granddam of many of these pups. 

I allow these amazing dogs to breed naturally, and safely, as they come into heat.

There is no way to rush this process, unfortunately, as dams only come into heat twice per year, 

so it may take time to get your heeler puppy.  It is worth the wait.

Once a dam is bred, gestation is about 62 days.  

These two months are part of the 6 months between heats, so when a dam

whelps a litter of pups, I can expect her to be back in heat in 4 months.  I allow them to breed every cycle.  

If a female does not take when she is bred, it is most likely because she needs a break, 

and I can't begrudge her that break. 

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

Please note that you do not have to reserve (i.e., pay a deposit).  

You may ask to be put on my "interested" list instead (no payment required), 

if you would like to continue your search for a heeler pup without a commitment.  

You may just email me and ask to be on the "interested" list.  I will put your email 

address on a separate list as  an "interested" party.  I go to this list if I ever

have an extra pup that doesn't fit anyone on the reserved list, or, on occasion, if 

I come across an older heeler pup, or grown heeler that is in need of a good home.

 If you cannot find a pup you like elsewhere, you can always reserve and go onto the reservation 

list (getting a pup in order of reservation), or simply remain on the "interested" list 

in case I have a pup available at some point that doesn't fit anyone who is reserved.

of one of my females (Senseney), years ago, playing with her pups (by Clooney's grand-sire).

They begin to "show" at about 5 weeks along in the pregnancy.

Pups go home between 6 and 7 weeks of age

eating dry Purina Puppy Chow (from 3 weeks of age), with first puppy shot, 

and routine deworming at 3 and 6 weeks of age 

(you will get a health pamphlet with DOB, vaccination/deworming, and other info.)



Standard heeler pups are:

$395 for males and $450 for females

Miniature heeler pups are:

$525 for males and $575 for females


You may reserve for a pup not born yet (minimum $150 deposit required), and go onto the reservation list

moving up on the list as pups are born (offered in order of reservation date, as each 

reservation fits the puppies born).  Note: This could take several litters

(miniatures are taking longer than standards).

 Or you may simply email me at 

thelewisranch@aol.com to get on the interested list (no payment required)

Please click on the link below, and read


...before you reserve, as reservations are non-refundable.

It does take time to get your puppy...please realize that you must be patient

(I don't make these pups in my garage...nature is in total control).

Please note: For miniatures, I have had quite a few reservations this past year or so, 

so it could take several litters to get to you (I would advise duplicating on the standard list

and having the option to take a standard pup when offered, if it is taking awhile to get a miniature). 

Our male, Shelton Blue , is the sire of both our standard and miniature pups

and he only weighs 35#s

Miniatures are a bit of a wait (especially for females, as less were born in each litter the last year or so, and more people on the reservation list are reserved for a female only), with only the 3 dams.

Once you reserve, you go onto the reservation list,

and move up as litters are born.  I always go in order, 

and you will get your pup as soon as it is your turn, and a pup is born that fits

what you have requested (gender, color, markings, etc.).

Note: You do not have to pay to get on the interested list.

You may simply email me and be on a waiting list of folks who are interested

You will then be notified first (after reservations are exhausted) when a pup is available that does not fit

those reserved (before the pup is posted on this site for sale to the public).  Please note that at this time

I rarely have to go to the interested list for miniatures, as most pups fit someone who is reserved.

For a standard size: I have been getting to the interested list on a few pups (e.g., not every pup fits what those on the reserved list are waiting for...such as gender, color, markings, tail, etc., and/or not everyone is ready for a pup when contacted (e.g., illness, vacation, new baby, moving, etc.), and, believe it or not, some don't respond when contacted, so I have to move on and offer the pup to the next in line.  I often get down the list pretty far on a litter of 7-8 pups.


You may use the Paypal buttons below to Reserve.

You may also reserve using Venmo, Zelle, your Paypal account, or by mailing a check 

(see address below)

You may pay in full or put a minimum of $150 down 

(I will be notified of your payment and will respond).

Just note that the balance for your pup is due when you say "yes" to a pup that is offered, 

so some folks opt to pay as they wait, so there isn't a large amount due later.

Email me after reserving to describe your specifications for a pup 

(please include a cell# and tail preference, and/or color, & gender preference, if any)

I will need/use your payment info/pup specifications email to add you to the reserved list, 

and confirm by replying to your email (your cell # will only be used to alert you when I have

emailed you about a litter of pups, when you are up for a pup).

**Please note: If you put the minimum down, I suggest paying the balance as you wait, 

because any balance owed must be paid in full the day you are offered a pup. 

If you say yes to the pup, I would need the balance paid via CC/ATM right away.

I cannot hold the pup for you without payment in full.

To pay via check: Email me to alert me you will be sending a personal check. 

Please include your phone number and email address, and I will email you when your check has arrived, and ask you for your specifications for your pup (if they were not included on a note with your check)

*To Venmo: Use @sarajane01 (please "follow" me first).

I am also set up to accept Zelle, or you can use your own Paypal account

(please make the payment "friend to friend").

or you may go to PayPal to pay $150 (or more) deposit to reserve.

...or use the PayPal buttons set up (below) on this page.

You may make additional payments while you wait using any of the above payment methods.

The drop-down box below has prices for standard or miniature/male or female

Note: If you are flexible on size/gender, and are paying in full...pay the lower price (male/standard)

and we can settle up any balance owed if you end up with 

a female and/or miniature (if you have stated you are flexible), once you are offered a pup. 

(because there are no refunds on price differences when/if you accept a lesser-priced pup).


Note: There has been some trouble (since COVID) flying pups, so inquire with the airlines.  The flight must be arranged and paid for by you.  If you must fly your pup, please know that there is a chance it cannot be flown at certain times of year, etc.  It is your responsibility to get your pup home.

* Pup may fly at 8 weeks old after Vet Exam, and requires Airline approved kennel, bowls, bedding, water, food, paperwork (Health certificate), transport to the airport (1 hour each way) and the Vet on my end (15 minutes each way), which I can arrange and accomplish for you ($175 covers all of this...right now anyway, except for the actual flight/Vet cost)...you can pay me via Venmo, Paypal or Zelle for this as the flight time nears.  *Please check with me before reserving if you plan to fly your pup...as I need to prepare to do this for you.  I must know in advance that this is your plan, because pups fly at 8 weeks, but otherwise go home between 6-7 weeks of age.  There is a lot of planning and preparation on my end that goes into flying your pup.

*Try Delta Airlines or United first as they have worked well in the past.  Plane tickets have been around $225 in the past (but with everything going up...this may be up as well), and fairly easy to arrange- flying out of Fresno, CA (pups usually weigh between 7-9 pounds and take the medium size carrier).  You must make the reservation on your end and pay for flight (coordinate this with me so I am sure to be available for Vet appointment for Health Exam/Certificate, and transport to airport within 7 days of the Vet Exam).   The airline approved kennel, water/food dish, absorbent pad, blanket, etc., cost is $175 (prices just went way up for these) and is paid to me so that I can have these items purchased for your pup, and ready for the flight.  Vet exam is paid directly to the Vet (around $65, last I checked) by credit card or Care Credit Card, or mail them a check in advance along with all shipping information.  In addition to payment, they will need the pup's name, your name, phone number, and address (final destination of pup) for the health certificate (required by airlines to fly).  I will call and make the actual appointment with the Vet, as I will need to work that around my schedule and the flight (within 7 days of the flight).

Note: I will drive your pup to the Vet for the exam and secure the Health certificate, and then to the Airport for you (55 minute drive to the Airport, each way, and 15 minutes to the Vet, each way), which is usually at about 3 am (for the airport...they need the pup there 2 hours before the flight leaves).

-a medium kennel (pup must be able to stand and turn around without touching the sides or the top of the airline approved carrier) and feed/water dish is required by the airline and I can get that for you out of the $175 you have paid via Zelle, Venmo or Paypal ($175 for all-includes airline approved/required kennel, feed/water dish for air travel, blanket, absorbent padding, baggie of food, water bottle and health certificate/paperwork).

-a Veterinary exam has been about $65 at Lone Oak Veterinary Clinic and they will take a credit card (and possibly, 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 (before pup is 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 (I will pick up the Health certificate when the Vet has it ready).   The exam/health certificate is good for 7 days, so planning the flight around this is essential.  Pup must be 8 weeks old to fly, and cannot fly in extreme cold/or heat.

The Vet's number is 559-732-4818 and you can check out their website by clicking on the clinic name above.

                                                                                                                   Our Miniature Line

...begins with Tatum (a blue stumpy tail male), who sired Midler, who was 20 pounds. 

  Midler was a stumpy tail heeler (70% heeler).  I had her dam genetically tested for

percentage of heeler by Animal Genetics Lab because she was part heeler.

Ballerini is her daughter, and is 85% heeler (22#s).  She throws traditional blue pups with tan

and throws red pups too (very light to medium red ticking).  

Ballerini produces pups that are about

93% Queensland Heeler, and are "miniature"  and sold separately from standards.

Standard heelers usually weigh between 40-50 pounds or so

but her pups have ranged from about 17-35 pounds so far

Stefani (see her bio/pictures below), a Ballerini x Clooney daughter, will throw pups that are just under 97% 

Queensland Heeler

(she weighs about 27 pounds and is a bit taller than her dam, but very proportionate-just small).

Barrett, is a red miniature, and is 93% heeler (also a Ballerini x Clooney daughter) .  

She throws pups that are red, and throws blues w/tan 

Her pups are just under 97%  Queensland Heeler... (see bio and pictures below).

Pictures of Ballerini

 She is about 1/3 the size of a standard heeler 

(full grown, below)

Full grown, and pictured with Aniston, a tall standard heeler, above


A daughter of Clooney and Ballerini (she is 93% heeler).

She is bred to Shelton Blue

for just under 97% heeler pups

She weighs about 27 pounds and is a bit taller than her dam, but very proportionate-just smaller

than a standard heeler in every way

Stefani is about half the size of her sire, Clooney, but looks a lot like him.


Barrett is a red miniature heeler.  She is 93% heeler and the daughter of Ballerini (and Clooney).   I kept her tail. 

Her pups will be just under 97% heeler.   She is a miniature and is bred to  Shelton Blue (35#s).   

She throws pups that are red, and also throw blues w/tan. 

Barrett's puppy pictures below

The original sire in the Miniature line


He is an average heeler (about 40-45 pounds)

Very lean and active, friendly and playful 

He is an Australian Stumpy Tail heeler- blue with tan markings, and was born with a stumpy tail.

He is the grandsire of Ballerini and great-grandsire of Stefani and Barrett

Everyone who reserved for a pup, and has waited so patiently-Thank you!

We will get you a pup as quickly as we can, but when you reserve for a pup you are

what they reserved for, what you are reserving for, if a female takes (sometimes they need a break),

There are many variables that I cannot control, or know ahead of time,


Which dam comes into heat, and when, and if she takes when bred...I also cannot predict the gender, color 

(how many red, blue, etc. will be born), how many pups will be born in each litter, or their markings, size,

without one, of course.

*if a pup is born with a tail, it can be docked (at 3 days old) or left in-tact for you

Pfeiffer unexpectedly passed away on 1-31-2018.  She was 9 years old and a daughter of McConaughey

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

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

NOTE: If you are flexible on size (miniature or standard) you may duplicate in both folders (taking/considering either size)

and pay as if you will get the cheaper standard size ($395 for a male and $450 for a female)

If you are flexible on gender,

you may pay as if reserving for the cheaper male ($395 for standard and $525 for miniature) 

and we will settle up any differences once we know for sure what size and/or gender you are taking

Please email me to let me know this is what you are doing so I can keep track with you and note

that you are flexible on size/gender on your reservation.

Keep in mind that if you reserve a pup: We may very well have plenty of pups to accommodate everyone in the next few litters of pups, but if we don't, being flexible will get you a pup sooner (specifying you must have a full mask, etc., for example, may take a bit longer); being understanding and patient is greatly appreciated, since I do not control what is born or what those reserved ahead of you decide to do, or not do.  Normally there are quite a few reservations, especially for blue females (the current trend), so it often takes several litters to get to you, since there is so much I have no control over.  Rest assured, I go in order of reservation...always, and offer pups to those first in line  and reserved the longest (if a pup in the litter fits their request).  I will contact you as soon as it is your turn, and a pup fits your specifications when I get to you in the reservation folder.  I will get to you, I promise.  I keep this site up to date with information on litters coming as I "know" it, and change the date accordingly, so you know how current the information is.  If the date isn't as recent as you would like, it is because there is no change to post on the site.  I always post any new information or changes as soon as I have that information to post, and change the date to reflect that recent post.

Again, please take a moment to read How It Works for payment information as well as the process that we use once a litter is born

 (before you reserve, after being sure you want a pup from me, as I cannot refund 

if you change your mind later due to the wait, if you happen to find a pup elsewhere, ...or for any other reason).

Flying a pup: Scroll up for Air Transportation information

Pups will be dewormed (at about 3 weeks and 6 weeks of age) and have their first puppy shot at pickup.

They will be eating dry Purina Puppy Chow from about 3 weeks of age; 

offered free-choice, after whelping, to dam and pups

I send pictures at birth, at about 10 days old (when eyes have opened), and about once a week after that, so

you can watch your pup grow, become active, and get his/her coloring.

Puppies' ears stand up anywhere from about 2 weeks of age to 5 months of age (usually by 3 months of age).

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

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

Reserve now   ...after viewing HOW IT WORKS


a smaller blue female-she weighed about 29 pounds

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

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

The white heeler is a rare color of heeler  and Pfeiffer threw a few in her litters but there was NO WAY TO KNOW WHICH PUP would be white, if any (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- but it was very light.

Ballerini (same line as Pfeiffer), also just threw three very light/white/cream pups in her August, 2021 litter.

If a solid white one is in a 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/red pup, 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 are reserved, and have indicated they want a shot at a white one, reserved folks first, and then those who just emailed to indicate interest,  before posting the pup for sale on the website, to find a home for the pup.  It will be first come, first serve at this point.  


Note: Ballerini (same line as Pfeiffer) and bred to Clooney (same line as McConaughey) also just threw three very light/white/cream pups in her August, 2021 litter.


Sarandon is Jake's dam (a stumpy tail sire I use on occasion to breed to Jillian-so, Chesney's sire and dam). 

Sarandon is Chesney's grand-dam and Tatum (stumpy tail) is her grand-sire: Sarandon was very light blue with red and blue speckles.  She threw blue pups and an occasional red one in the litter.  Some blues had typical tan markings, some did not (a blue heeler with no tan).  Most of her pups had many colors.  No way to know at birth which pups will be light like her, and which will be a more typical darker blue, or which will end up with tan markings, or look like a chocolate color or ?  They get color at about 3-4 weeks of age and this is when we can tell,  so there is no real way to reserve for a chocolate either.  You can specify your interest in one, or specify you do not want tan markings, and I can try to work that out but there is no guarantee...you can always back out of a pup you have tentatively chosen, and wait for the next litter... at any time before pickup day.

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

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

At about 10 days old:

 I call this pup (above) a "chocolate" heeler...no tan on paws or chest or face...just a 'black' heeler that turned chocolate 

Sarandon, had a brother this color!  Jake (occasional sire we use for Jillian, is also 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 has 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.

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

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

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 neutered.  He was my buddy for 13 years

Palomino finding some sunshine in his last days

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




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

and here with Senseney-what a tank he was.

  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...


 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 away.

The End
