Meet Gracie!  She’s an eight week old Red Heeler (Australian Cattle Dog).  We just picked her up today and she’s already stolen my heart!!!


I don’t think this one will ever see a leash.  She is glued to my ankles wherever I go!  😁

    Good dogs, and a cute pup! They'll herd anything, and I mean ANYTHING! :D

    I think your wife sees some new shoes and some new furniture in her future, good thing the dog is cute.

    Yes sir!  Our old one could not stand the chickens not coming into the hen house at the end of the day so she’d run them right it!  She would also herd my wife into the kitchen at night at supper time...  I loved that dog 🤣

     Cute puppy, I am about 6 months ahead of you. I wish I had more time to train mine, I believe the smarter they are the more they can be a pain in the arse. Lots of fun and having a buddy is good.

    Nice looking pup! My sister and here husband pretty much only use Australian Cattle Dogs on their cattle operation in Nebraska. They get the the job done according to her.

    Nice!
    i have a Blue Heeler that is my side kick and loves me to death.

    Shes freakin adorable! Our GSD is 8 months old now but she grew so fast that it seemed like she was a "pup" for about 2 weeks.

    One of the few dog breeds I would consider if I was to get a dog.  Going to be a good looking dog when she grows up.

    We don’t do paper training.  My wife is a freaking dog mind reader when it comes to pee/poop needs.  So far no accidents Indoors and she poops on command outside!  Our dogs are usually fully housebroken within a week...

    This is our second run with an ACD so we know what a huge PIA a bored smart dog can be 🤣

    Their instincts are crazy.  The last one we had was all of 8 lbs when we went to a ranch with a HUGE bull in a pen.  She wanted to break the truck window to go after him!!!  Had a big ram square off to her and she jumped up and bit him in the face and then jumped on his back.

    Fearless?  Dumb?  Maybe a happy combination of both... 🤣

    Yours is beautiful!  I showed pics you posted here to Kim and it was one of the reasons we decided to get ahead and get another one.  They are great dogs!  When they love you there is NO dog more loyal and they are ATTACHED to you!

    I know it goes too fast.  I wish they’d stay puppies just a little longer...

    Just noticed the name, if she's so smart, you should teach her to bark/groan once to the old George Burns command, "Say good night Gracie" :D
