Meet Kayla ...
Kayla is a female Blue Heeler, about 5 years of age that arrived in May of 2014 to the Humane Society of North Iowa in Mason City. I met Kayla on Tuesday and I have to say, she is very sweet. A little shy at first but once we got outside and away from the high energy of the kennels, she was happy, as you can tell from her photo! Kayla is a such a sweetheart and loves tummy rubs! Her breed is known for herding. So if you don't have cattle, sheep or other animals that need herding she may be able to help herd the kiddos in the car before school each morning!
Kayla's story courtesy of HSNI.:
I am such a beautiful girl, with a bit of a round physique:) I have great manners and am house trained. Fearful of strangers, I need some time to get to know you. My former owner said that I was not socialized well with people, so it’s really not my fault. In a matter of days here at the shelter, I made fast friends with all the staff. They adore me! I like other dogs and am trying to make some canine friends also. If you are interested in meeting me, please stop at the shelter and ask the staff to get me out. It might take a little while for me to warm up to you, but I am well worth the wait cause I am the sweetest thing you will ever meet! Please call the Humane Society of North Iowa at 641-423-6241 for more information.
Adoption fee covers the following veterinarian services: spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccination, flea and wormer treatment, feline leukemia test in cats, heartworm test for dogs.
Right Breed for You?
Happiest in wide open spaces, ACDs Blue Heelers) are very high-energy dogs and extremely intelligent, so they need a job - such as herding, obedience or agility - to keep them happy. While wary of strangers, the breed bonds closely to its family, though the owner must establish themselves as the pack leader. Their smooth, short coat requires only occasional baths and brushing.
