   The Lancashire Heeler is a
   native breed of the United  
   Kingdom originating in
   the county of Lancashire
   hence the name, he is the 
   smallest dog in the Pastoral
   Group, this group comprises
   of dogs who were used to
   herd cattle and sheep since
   the early days of mans close  
   association with dogs.

The Lancashire Heeler - a Native Dog 
  of the UK - originating from Lancashire

The people of Lancashire are fond of the Lancashire Heeler as I can  remember there were many around in the 1950's and 1960's these little dogs were also known as black and tans or Ormskirk Heelers.

A large amount of the people who owned them were the older generation who kept them as pets.  They were bred and used by the local farmers for herding their livestock as they nipped the heels of the sheep and cows without breaking the skin, hence the name Heeler, they were used at the back of the herds to drive the cattle forward, collie dogs were used down the flanks.
Lancashire Heelers were mostly given free to farmers friends in the outlying districts and were used for 'chasing rabbits' or ratting, like they were on the farms and keeping the rats from the grain stores.  Then people in the small towns and villages began to breed them mostly as pets, as they are excellent at alerting their owners of oncoming predators be they two or four legged foes, they are also good as a hot water bottle on a cold night, and for anyone who enjoys a small lively dog they are a joy to be around.
In the 1970's a group of Lancashire Heeleer enthusiasts got together and formed a club, The Lancashire Heeler Club, in 1978 they wrote a breed standard to give an overall guide as to what the dog should aspire to.  They then under the guidance of a lady, Mrs Gwen Mackintosh, managed in the early 1980's to get this lovely breed recognised by the Kennel Club, they are now shown at shows all over the country, indeed many have been exported to various parts of Europe and more recently America.   Audrey
