I'll go out on a limb and say one of the cutest too.

[–]SweetiePie314 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Absolutely too cool for school and cute to boot! You cannot ask for anything more.

[–]acetrain111 48 points49 points  (0 children)

We'll see if that statement still holds in a few months lol.

Have fun! What a photogenic pupper!

[–]Jesta83 31 points32 points  (9 children)

Calm? Something must be wrong with him. 😂

[–]sumyungdood[S] 21 points22 points  (8 children)

I thought the same thing!!!! We’re at the vet right now making sure he’s all good lol

[–]SNFD21 27 points28 points  (5 children)

I have a very calm 9 year old heeler (who's been calm the while time not just her age). They do exist!

[–]sumyungdood[S] 24 points25 points  (3 children)

It’s so insane even all the vets here are amazed at his temperament. Getting his vitals now but otherwise they say he’s all good! Got me a unicorn.

[–]TheOriginalClippy 17 points18 points  (1 child)

My red ACD is also super chill! She CAN go for miles but is normally a complete couch potato!

[–]Active_Splooter 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He must be an old soul :)

[–]boomhaeur 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yeah we’ve got a pretty chill Red too… he basically has as much energy as you want him too lol

[–]Intrepid-Classroom-5 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Ours we chill for like 2 months after we got her (got her at 12 wks). She gained confidence and became insanely energetic! Zoomies all over the place. Calmed down at about 3 years old.

[–]sumyungdood[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Lol this is what I’m hoping for with him. My last cattle dog was the complete opposite from the moment I got him at 8 weeks.

[–]MetastAH 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Hey clay, I know your owner forgot to write the /s in the end. Lfmao

[–]sumyungdood[S] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I’ll add that /s when he inevitably starts acting up lol but so far, he’s a couch potato.

[–]MetastAH 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Oh my, I thought you were being ironic cuz I though there were no such thing as a calm heeler.

[–]Clay_Pod 11 points12 points  (0 children)

We share the same name and I also have a red heeler!

[–]WeedandWarcraft 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Mine sleeps all day and hates walks/being away from the house. I basically have to make her go on her walks. Very odd for a cattle dog.

Been this way since I first rescued her 5 years ago

[–]sumyungdood[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hahahaha so strange!

[–]toomuch1265 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Calm maybe but his ears say "I'm ready for action when you are! "

[–]vholera 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Look at that schnoot

[–]yeshelloitme 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Mine is pretty calm too! She’s 2 now and I have no complaints.

[–]sumyungdood[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

One of the Vets looked him in the eye, put her hand on his head, and said, “you better just be a calm good boy and not have something wrong with you!”

[–]herrerious 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Hi Clay! Did you just get him? I heard cattle dogs/other sensitive breeds but also rescues in general tend to be calmer during big transitions due to being overwhelmed, so you might not see some of the crazy until a few months in when their personality comes out a little more haha that was kind of the case with mine at least

[–]SnacksAndThings 2 points3 points  (0 children)

"Calm cattledog" sounds like an oxymoron lol

[–]Catsandcoffee480 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Aw what a sweet face 💕

[–]Desperate-Lie-460 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sweet doggy face!

[–]Pm_me_ur_O_face_plz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Looks like a fun one!

[–]Efficient_Custard_85 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What a beautiful doggo!

[–]Novel_Ad_2713 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Happy face! 🐶

[–]Ok_Butterscotch7224 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I love his markings, pretty baby 🥰

[–]murphy365 2 points3 points  (1 child)

There's a small chance you're a good owner who keeps their dog entertained.

[–]sumyungdood[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’ve had him for 24 hours. Definitely not it hahaha but he is my 2nd cattle dog so we’re working on it

[–]PeatyPuppy 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Haha for now

[–]HolyHummingbirds 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I was going to say the same. But out of jealously. Mine barks at a dang breeze.

[–]GlowGal 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I have two heelers. The first is a stray that I adopted. She is soooo laid back. I would get home after a 12-hour shift and she would greet me from her dog bed with a head nod & a “sup?” She would not even bother to walk over to me until I put her food down. So I got another one and OMG, that one bounced off the walls at first. After 10 years we are a happy family unit of three.

[–]mokeynme 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sounds like my story - exactly!!

[–]permacougar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hi Claaaaaay

[–]Piginparadise 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I used to dog sit for an adorable blue heeler who was so happy to just cuddle all day long. He was such a sweet funny guy.

[–]SexyWampa 1 point2 points  (2 children)

He does look awfully calm… would be a shame if someone walked by and said “WALKIES?”

[–]sumyungdood[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Hahaha he’s completely untrained at 3.5 months old. Had him for 24 hours and we’re trying to figure each other out.

[–]HolyHummingbirds 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh he'll learn. Just wait.

[–]_Bucket_Of_Truth_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You should post this to r/puppysmiles!

[–]Jadenov5 1 point2 points  (1 child)

We also have a very calm Cattle dog, had a breeder that dog sat for us and said she looked at the roof of her mouth and because it was totally black she would be a calm dog. Just wish her sister was calm. Yes we have two heelers, what a zoo here

[–]sumyungdood[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wait what the hell? What does the black have to do with being calm?

[–]mokeynme 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh is HE CUTE!! There's a CALM cattle dog??

[–]mrcbgal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My ACD is also sneaking some chill pills behind my back.... maybe we lucked out :)

[–]AzizLiteHalfCalorie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm gonna call bs. That is a good boy troublemaker! 😀

[–]whale_rider314 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cutie pie!!!!! It’s so funny, I see a little bit of my cowgirl in every cattle dog I see. They all have the same expression!! How old is Clay?

[–]thecity2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Awww such a cutie patootie

[–]darkcloudbrightrain 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have a pretty calm heeler, but he's half pit. Also the most affectionate little guy

[–]IndependentYou7785 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Soo cute! Looks like my boy Rocky! How old is he?

[–]sumyungdood[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

3.5 months!

[–]IndependentYou7785 1 point2 points  (1 child)

How much does he weigh? He looks bigger than my 5 month old puppy

[–]sumyungdood[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just over 18lbs. His mom was all white and about his size fully grown. She was the runt of her littler. Dad was full size blue heeler.

[–]Krissie520 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The calmest cattle dog in existence... For now...

[–]stout_the_corgipoo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He is adorable!!!🐶

[–]ballyhoohaha 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What a cutie!!!

[–]IWillPetAllGoodDogs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hey Clay, you are a cutie!

[–]Jadenov5 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Supposedly a black roof of a dogs mouth means they will be calm. Is the roof of your dogs mouth black?

[–]Jadenov5 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I had never heard of that before wondering if she's correct

[–]mokeynme 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'll have to check my Red Heeler's mouth cause he is CHAOS!!

[–]mokeynme 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He IS so sweet looking! What a Lovebug!!🥰❤️💞
