Dogs unfortunately can have seizures. I don't know what the exact standard for health problems known in German Shepherds or Heelers but I will go and check it out in a minute. I'm not a professional when it comes to Australian Cattle Dogs or German Shepherds, Although I am a professional when it comes to dogs in general. I am 12 years old and show my Australian Shepherd in four different dog sports and I'm getting ready to get her a trick dog title. I have learned much about dogs, specially in the training department.

Ok, I'm back. I checked and both breeds are not prone to seizures. This doesn't nessesarily mean that it can't get seizures but it is rare. From the breed standard then Blue Heelers are prone to considerably less health problems then German Shepherds. If you think your dog might be having seizures then it would be highly reccemended that you take it to the vet. I hope that your dog is Ok.
