The “Texas Heeler” not only herds and heels, but they handle a charging cow without a problem. As we start out to round up the cows, a few invariably attempt to charge. These dogs meet the challenge eye-to-eye, with every muscle tense and ready. With cat-like grace, they inch forward to meet the cow, and, in a split second, before the cow charges, They rush forward, grab the cow’s nose and give it a quick twist. The cow jumps back quickly and turns around with a snort. Then, the dog heels and ushers the cow forward to the barn yard. What intelligence, cunning and split-second timing! Many farmers are quite surprised that a heel dog can handle a charging cow, but it is the pure “Texas Heeler’ that has it all – so far advanced that one cannot help feeling they are the greatest!
