We Never Seem to Run Out of Puppies

Heelers and Helpers— After you have 5–7 week old Heeler puppies, you definitely could use the help. The first week we had them, the noise was unbearable. They have gotten used to us now and are so much calmer. Jordan, Ace, Dakota and Trill are so cute and have unigue sets of spots so we can tell them apart.
OH, ABOUT THE HELP–Well, 12 Hills has been fortunate to find a super gal to help us out. She loves dogs, and knows how to take care of them in just the right way. Oh, we are blessed to have her for our rescue. Thanks Brenda!

Basic Stats:

Sammy

Fun Fact: She needs a little work but is not gun shy and would probably do great if hunting with another dog. Sammy has new kennel friends–the puppies like to crawl under and join her for fun and food. She is so good to them. She wants to run and play and is looking for a family that could do both. I see by her back toe the German Short hair breed. Sammy is a beautiful dog that deserves a special family.

Nyla

Approximate Age: 1 year

Breed (our best guess): Lab/shepherd Mix

Basic Stats:

Nyla

Fun Fact: She needs a home with a family that likes to play— a big yard is preferred. Nyla is not shy anymore, she loves people and other dogs. Sometimes she gets a little aggressive with other doggies, so it would be better if she was in a home without other dogs, or maybe with just one.

Nyla’s Story: Nyla came to us from our local pound, on her last day. She was adopted immediately, and was adorable with her giant ears. Nyla was loved and cared for by a wonderful lady, but became to big and too much for her to handle. Nyla is very strong and loves to go for walks and enjoys running. She has free access to the farm, so gets plenty of exercise here. She has one eye outlined normal, and one outlined in pink. A beautiful gal—with creamy white coat and a unigue look. You have to ssee her and get to know her.
