Hall's Heelers : The Original, Blue, Australian Cattle Dogs - Echuca, VIC.
Hall's Heeler's : The Original, Blue, Australian Cattle Dogs! We only breed and show Blue Australian Cattle Dogs; otherwise known as Blue Heelers. These are the original, renowned working dogs first designed and bred in Australia for the harsh Australian outback working conditions by Thomas Simpson Hall (the son of Australian Pioneer George Hall).
Although we have had a lifetime of 50+ years of experience both growing up with, breeding, and living with this definitive, active, loyal, loving, extremely smart, and "truly unique throughout the world" breed of working dog, we have very carefully chosen to establish our registered lines over a number of years on select, old bloodlines (the oldest in Australia) that are easily traced back to the foundations of our breed, hence our registered ANKC breeders prefix, HallsHeeler.
The aim of our select small breeding program is to improve the Hall's Heeler line of Blue, Australian Cattle Dogs to the point where we eliminate completely current genetic issues such as PRCD (Progressive Rod Cone Disease) in their eyes, PLL (Progressive Lens Luxation) in their eyes and Deafness by genetic testing and sound breeding planning and management, without adding any other health issues; at the same time strengthening the hardiness and overall breed standard, reliability, temperament and working dog ability of our lineage. This is why we were the first ACD Breeders to offer a LIFETIME genetic defects guarantee* on ANY pup sold.
UPDATE: We have now eliminated PLL and PRCD, whilst maintaining excellent type to ANKC breed standards. Our stud dogs are all PRA "Clear"; no known, testable genetic defects.
*See our website for our Lifetime Genetic Defects guarantee.
To describe a typical Hall's Heeler Australian Cattle Dog would be to see a silvery "Blue" and "Blue Speckled" coloured Australian Cattle Dog, like the turn of the 20th Century colouring, with a strong head and strong bones. A Hall's Heeler is a sound working dog that moves well with an innate ability and desire to work cattle (it's bred for purpose in life) and other livestock.
A Hall's Heeler, Blue Australian Cattle Dog (or Blue Heeler as they are colloquially known) has an excellent temperament, is very smart, easily trained, and makes for an "awesome" medium-sized, family dog for energetic people with "the room to exercise them properly" and spend time with them as that's all any Hall's Heeler Australian Cattle Dog will want; to be with you and the family 24/7 protecting, guarding and loving you. You will not get a more loyal companion for one person or a family. Although we recommend they be outside dogs many of our family of Hall's Heeler owners/carers successfully house them as outside/inside dogs.
Hall's Heeler's : The Original, Blue, Australian Cattle Dogs (Blue Heelers) are suitable for people after a pet blue heeler, small and hobby farmers, and large cattle farmers in Australia and Ranches World-Wide. We offer select dogs from our breeding program to other registered breeders in certain instances where we feel our HallsHeeler lineage will complement and enhance the overall bloodlines of the Australian Cattle Dog both in Australia and World-Wide. We also help establish newly registered breeders with our bloodlines within Australia and support them on an as-needed basis.
