So this is Joey and she’s owned by Danielle @dmrussie (Instagram).
Recently Joey swallowed a squeaker from one of her toys and Danielle almost lost her. She spent day and night at the Vet clinic right by Joey’s side when Joey needed surgery to remove not only the squeaker (Pictured bottom right) but also 5 inches of intestine that had died as a result of the blockage. It was touch and go a few times but Joey is finally back to her normal smiley self.
Danielle is part of a wonderful team who have started a non-profit organisation called Hug A Heeler (www.hugaheeler.com) to raise awareness about and help Australian Cattle dogs (Blue and Red Heelers). On the website you can read stories about dogs and their humans and how they came to be rescued.
Right so, Danielle has entered Joey into a contest for Modern Dog Magazine, in order to not only show off her beautiful Joey-girl but promote Hug A Heeler and raise awareness for the breed (one which I fully and completely support because I have a Red Heeler).
Modern Dog Magazine Link for Joey
All I’m asking is you click the link and vote for Joey. You don’t have to sign up for anything, it’s simply a one click move and you can go on with your life.
And perhaps reblog it if you feel so inclined so we can get the word out about this amazing breed who are so often mistreated when all they want to do is please their owners.
