I love blue heelers but they are something else… Only domestic dog with wild dingo blood in their genetic make up. Much erroneous thought processes of public perception seems to stem directly from a disconnect with what animals were bred for. Our ancestors bred animals for purpose and work. Our modern time lacks much of the environments needed for them to do their jobs or people who live the lifestyles the animals were intended for. I’ve spent past five years searching the country for good blue heeler lines. The two have found are old lines maintained by an old cattle rancher in Texas and a man in Midwest who ABS (a company that collects bull semen for artificial insemination) bought their bloodlines from. Bet 80 or 90 years ago would have been alot more quality lines readily available. The show ring and pet industry is the death of the working dog as we know it. People will always maintain them because they are useful but not in demand as in days gone by.
