Breed: Blue Queensland Heeler

Weight: 45 lbs

Age: 4 years

Personality: What? A couch potato Heeler? Yep, Cannon likes to spend his days sleeping -- But when it's time for a walk, he is also ready to go with a smile! And what a perfect gentleman he is on leash too. He is a well-behaved dog who doesn't chew or get into anything around the house. He is very smart plus treat motivated, so teaching obedience like sit, down, bed, and crate, is a breeze! Cannon is a very sweet and loyal dog. He loooves all people, and greets everyone with his famous wiggle butt (since he doesn't have a tail!) and an invitation to pet! He will do anything for ear scratches and belly rubs! See more of Cannon's daily doings on our Instagram!
