all of the horses and cattle here at Decco Ranch, there is
often a need for good working ranch dogs. We have found Queensland
Heelers to suit our needs perfectly. As their name suggests,
Queensland Heelers make excellent herding dogs. They are also
loving, devoted pets and very reliable watchdogs. Queensland
Heelers can also be known as Australian Cattle Dogs. Although

a family. Although they will love, play with and protect
all members of the family, they let everyone know who their
chosen 'special' person is.
