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,

and just prior to whelping, to keep mom and new pups safe.

We have 5 acres here for them to run on at our home site ... and they do.

I regulate mating to perpetuate this amazing breed.

I currently have 7 standard size breeding females (dams), 3 miniature dams, and 2 sires

(plus one older, additional heeler, Aniston. She is "fixed").

Aniston has been my sidekick for 13 years and is the dam of Clooney (one of my sires).

I allow these amazing dogs to breed as they come into heat.

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

so it may take time to get your heeler puppy.

Once a dam is bred, gestation is about 62 days (these two months are part of the 6 months between heats).

If a female does not take when 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.

If you feel you cannot wait, and would like to continue your search for a heeler pup,

you do not have to reserve. You may just email me and ask to be on the "interested" list instead.

I will put your email address on a list as interested,

and then if you cannot find a pup you like elsewhere, you can always reserve later, and go into the reservation folder

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

in case I have a pup available at some point that is not reserved for ahead of time.

Watch a cute video

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

You may reserve for a pup not born yet (payment 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),

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.

Please note: I have had quite a few reservations this past year, so it could take several litters to get to you

(though this has finally slowed to normal, and we are catching up now), but once you reserve,

you go onto the reservation list, and move up as litters are born. I always go in order.

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, but 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, as most pups fit someone who is reserved.

You may use the Paypal buttons below to Reserve (full payment or $150 down).

Email me after reserving to describe your specifications in a pup

or email me to reserve by mailing a check/specifications to:

Tina Lewis

19802 Avenue 376

Woodlake, CA 93286

*To Venmo: Use @tina-lewis-54 (friend request first...to avoid fees).

I am also set up to accept Zelle


* 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 ($95 covers it)

*Try Delta Airlines or United first as they seem to work well. Plane tickets are around $215, 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, and for, 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).

Note: I will drive your pup to the Vet for the exam and to the Airport for you (55 minute drive for Airport, each way, and 15 minutes to the Vet, each way) -free of charge (usually at about 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 ($95 for all-includes airline approved/required kennel, 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 (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).

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

Shelton Blue

(Smaller Standard-about 35#s)

...always wrestling and playing (high energy and athletic)

Shelton Blue is a standard blue male w/tan

He is from the same line as Pfeiffer (her dam is his granddam), so he is continuing her line

He is a smaller heeler, like Pfeiffer was, at about 35 pounds.

Our bigger sire (at about 50 pounds-thick, but average height):

He is continuing Aniston and McConaughey's lines

McKinney, above, playing with Barrett

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.

Midler was bred to Shelton Blue (about 35#s) for our line of miniature pups (85% heeler)

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

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

Ballerini is bred to Clooney (standard-100% heeler)

for about 93% Queensland Heeler pups that are "miniature" and sold separately from standards.

Standard heelers usually weigh between 40-50 pounds or so

but her pups have ranged from about 20-37 pounds so far

Her daughter, Stefani (see her bio/pictures below), will throw pups that are 96% Queensland Heeler

(she weighs about 30 pounds and is a bit taller than her dam, but very proportionate-just smaller).

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

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

Her pups will be 96% Queensland Heeler...once she is of breeding age (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 will be bred to Shelton Blue

for 96% heeler pups

She weighs about 30 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 96% heeler. She is a miniature and will be bred to Shelton Blue when she is of age in mid-2022.

See her puppy pictures below. I will update her pictures as she grows.

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

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

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

Please read


as all reservations are non-refundable.

You do not have to reserve 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, before the general public, when a pup is available that is not reserved for in advance

Either way, I will acknowledge receipt of your reservation payment.

Please keep in mind that we have a no refund policy, for obvious reasons

so please read How It Works before you reserve, as you are agreeing to wait patiently for your pup to be born.

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

stating that you have read and understand How It Works (our Terms and Conditions),

and 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 a female takes (sometimes they need a break),

and what is born in each litter;

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,

born with a tail/stumpy. I can dock a tail (done at 3 days old, upon request), but I cannot add one to a pup born

without one, of course.

These variables all affect how quickly I get to you in the reservation folder, and cannot be predicted.

So, please click here to read How It Works to understand the process before you reserve.

Tatum's Dam, Pocket (above)

(Ballerini's great-granddam)

This dam was a standard, but small, blue stumpy tail (about 30-35 pounds)

These lines (now carried on by Ballerini) are Australian Stumpy Tail Heeler lines

and Pocket, Tatum, and Ballerini are registered with the

Working Stock Dog World Registry

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

Heelers are born white and get color at about 3-4 weeks of age

The ears stand up from 3 weeks to 3 months of age or so, usually

Shelton Blue line:

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 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 cannot pay in full, but would like to get into the reservation folder, I will take your reservation in two to three payments using Paypal or Venmo (see Payment buttons above, and on the drop-down menu, click on the $150 option for a partial payment to reserve), or you may mail checks to the above address, made to Tina Lewis. I will notify you upon receipt of your reservation either way.

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 $495 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 is reserved ahead of you. 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 will post any new information or changes as soon as I have that information to 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 (spayed now) is my tallest female and goes camping, sticks close, and loves to go -this is my oldest heeler-born May, 2008

Her son is one of my sires...Clooney, and he continues her line. Aniston is currently still going strong at 13 years 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.

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

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

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
