Cookie is approximately 10 years old and our best guess for her breed is lab/border collie mix. Despite her age, she is very active and LOVES to fetch a ball. She also enjoys water and playing in a hose. Cookie eats up attention and loves to share her personal space. She is good with other dogs that are respectful and okay with indoor cats. If you are looking for an older dog that remains very active, this might be the girl for you. Cookie is spayed and current on vaccinations.
Sebastien is a 6 year old Australian Shepherd mix with a tail.  He is housetrained and likes to play with balls and other toys.  Sebastien is a good hiking buddy and while not over the top around the house, can keep up with you for a nice long hike.  Sebastien is neutered and current on vaccinations.  Sebastien loves his people but can be pretty protective around strangers so needs a home that is willing to continue to work with him to manage those behaviors.
Rook is a fun loving and active dog. He is 2 years old. His mother is a purebred Border Collie and it is presumed that his father is a Yellow Lab. Rook loves to chew on a good bone or go for a jog. He loves, LOVES, loves to swim and is an amazing companion. Rook also loves to play ball and retrieve.  He would be a good companion for a young single guy. Rook needs a home with a strong/comfortable owner. He does not do well with other dogs and needs to be in a one dog only family. He is incredibly loving and will always stay by your side proud to be your dog.  Rook is neutered and current on vaccinations.
Bailey the Black Lab
Bailey turned 2 in January. She is good with cats. She is a lab mix. She is protective when it comes to new people, but is very friendly after she sees that the new person was accepted by us. My daughter plays with bailey and bailey plays back, bailey loves to play with children, but should go to a home without small children as she likes to nip at heels when there is a high level of activity. Another downfall for bailey would be how she barks/bites at tires. Bailey loves the water, car rides, walks, playing ball and any family activity. Bailey is spayed, house trained and current on vaccinations.
Wrigley is a 4 year old neutered Australian Shepherd with a tail.  Wrigley's disposition is sort of "grumpy old man" mixed with "silly puppy."  He likes going for walks and hanging out, but likes to do things in his own way and at his own pace.  Wrigley would do best in a home with no cats and no children.  Doesn't he look better all cleaned up and groomed?
​​Zoey is a two year-old spayed smooth coat female border collie mix. This high energy pup loves to play all out, but can settle down after play time. Zoey loves to give and receive hugs as she will melt in your arms. She would be a great companion for another high energy dog playing chase, romping, and taking long hikes. Zoey knows basic commands like sit, lie down, and is leashed trained. She is house broke, crate trained and doesn’t push the fence in the back yard. She has been around our cats and other’s small dogs, and although she may be a little too inquisitive, has shown no malice towards them.  She could easily be taught skijoring. She has been around horses and likes these “big dogs”. She has a neurological issue that gives her an odd gait, but don't make the mistake of thinking it will slow her down, all she knows is that her job is to have frolicking fun. Zoey lives life to the fullest, and puts a smile on your face every day. Zoey needs a home that understands her high energy needs and if you are that home she will reward you with lots of love and devotion.
Jill is a 2 year old Australian Cattledog / Border Collie mix.   She is a very active, inquisitive girl.  She is a petite girl, maybe 30 lbs.  She is SO smart.  She loves to wrestle non-stop with her dog buddies.  She will need a busy home to keep up with her.
Ethel is a 3 year old Australian Cattledog mix.  She came to us as a feral dog and has come so far, but still needs a very special person to commit to her and keep working with her on socialization.
Quirk is a 1-2 year old Border Collie mix.  He has an endearing expression and a sweet personality.  He is pretty shy with people but clearly wants to be involved with them.  He is good with other dogs and fine with cats with a proper introduction.  Oh, and did we mention the cutest ears?  Quirk is neutered and current on vaccinations.
Thomas is a border collie/corgi mix.  He is about 2 years old.  He is a character but probably needs an experienced and firm home as he will push limits when permitted.
Meiji is a 6 month old female black and white smoothcoat border collie.  Very shy, but sweet.
Eve is a 2-1/2 year old Blue Heeler mix, spayed, up-to-date on shots and micro chipped. Her love of people will melt your heart the first time you meet her. Her love literally has no boundaries. She LOVES squeaky toys and some tug of war. When rescued she did have a broken front leg, and will need time to build the muscle and strength back in that leg. She has a lot of energy, so as she heals I am sure she would be a great outdoor companion. Eve is being fostered with 6 other dogs, 2 cats and 2 teenagers. Eve is crate trained and is quiet as a mouse in them. She has also received basic obedience training, walks on a leash, and is house trained. She will do great with someone who can love her to pieces, but be able to let her know there are boundaries. She tends to listen to males better than females, so a female might have to show a little more authority. As typical with all my heelers, she is good with inside cats and can be distracted if she decides they need her attention, but outside cats, and rabbits are fair game. Eve loves to play with other dogs, but would need to have a meet and greet with a potential sibling to ensure their play style matches.

Rupert is a 45 lb German Shepherd mix (small for a German Shepherd mix.  He is very good with people.  He has good manners and is a pleasure to be around.  He is neutered and current on vaccinations.
Rhee is a 2 year old Australian Cattledog mix.  We are told she is good with kids.  She is a lovely, bright and energetic girl. She loves to play and loves people. She hasn't met a dog she doesn't like and wants to play with all of them. We are working on her manners and learning basic commands. She sits well and is ok on a leash. She is house broken. Rhee would be a great hiking partner or ace at agility. She is a super smart girl and is easy to work with. She would be a good fit in a home that wants an active dog. She is ready to go when you are and her energy level is good when she is in the home. She crates well. Rhee is a wonderful dog.
Genny is a young female heeler cross. She is ever so sweet and loves her people. She is well behaved and low to moderate energy. Genny is house broken, walks on a leash well and knows sit.  Genny crates well and is a love to have around.
Suzie is 7 months old, about 17" at the shoulder and weighs 38 lbs. She's very sweet, very quiet, VERY shy and uncomfortable around people she doesn't know. When people come to visit she just sits under the table or on the couch and watches. She clearly had not been trained and didn't know any commands when she came to us. She's a smart little girl though and in a week has learned "sit" and her name. We are working on "leave it", "shake" and "down."  She really loves people and even though is extremely shy she wants to be with people. She likes other dogs and gets along well with them and is quickly learning about personal space. She really, really likes cats and gets her feelings hurt when they don't like her big slobbery kisses. She likes napping on the couch, treats, bones, rubbery toys she can chew on (still a puppy) and our dog. She doesn't like the vaccuum, ball caps, when the other dogs get excited, if anyone yells or to go for walks. We're working on all of that every day.  ​
Ricky is a large blue merle Australian Shepherd.  He is approximately 4 years old.  His owner had to go to a rest home and so this great dog is looking for a new family.
Tucker is a 2 year old Australian Cattledog.  He's smart, eager to please, obedient, well trained, and very healthy. Loves people of all shapes and sizes. Because he has occasional mouthiness (rare, and is easily re-directed) and can jump on people when he gets excited, I would say he's a candidate for a home with older, dog savvy children. He would do best as an only dog, but a confident female could work with someone who has heeler experience. He would be a great running partner (we've taken a few runs), but is perfectly content with long walks a few times a day. I think he could potentially be a great agility candidate, he's athletic.  He is impeccable on leash, and is completely trustworthy in the home when I'm not there. He hasn't chewed on one thing he's not supposed to. He's not overly interested in toys yet, but that could change. He can be a little skittish of unknown things at first, but once he has a bond with his person or people, he is quick to accept everything. No thunder phobia, he's definitely alert, but not reactive. Off leash he will chase a bunny or squirrel, but with the squirrels, he quickly fades interest once they climb into a tree. He's not overly vocal.
​Zena is a 7 month old miniature Australian Shepherd.  She will probably reach about 40 lbs, so not super small.  She has not been properly socialized and will need a special home to work with her and teach her basic things like affection, leash-training, etc.
​Jerry came to me completely terrified of everything and really didn’t want to give humans a second chance to hurt him again, thankfully time is healing those wounds. He has come a long way with his confidence in the short couple of months that he has been here. He absolutely loves other dogs and does great around my two cats, now that he isn’t afraid of them. He seems to ignore horses for the most part but seems a little too interested in birds. He does take a little bit to warm up to new people because of his mistrust and is still very afraid of children. He has shown zero aggression with his fear but I feel only an older child will work for him. The one thing that his past was unable to break was his heart of gold, he is literally one of the sweetest dogs I have ever had the pleasure of loving! He has a lot of energy to burn and will require regular exercise but really settles down inside and is wonderfully behaved. He absolutely hated being kenneled but he is a very good boy when left home alone and at night. His very smart and has learned how to jump our 5 foot fence so he cannot be left unattended in a fenced yard. He doesn’t go anywhere he just doesn’t like to feel trapped. Jerry just wants love and patience. The right family must be willing to work to gain his trust, he doesn’t give it freely, but the work you put in he will return 10 fold!!
Ami is a small spayed female tri-color border collie, about 5-6 years of age. She weighs about 30 pounds, but she is a little well-padded right now and is in the process of losing some weight. She has double dewclaws on the back feet, a lovely coat and beautiful color.  Ami was acquired by her first family as a puppy because the kids wanted a dog. However, they underestimated the energy of a border collie and the children were afraid to play with her. She spent most of her young life in a yard with privacy fence and couldn't see anything of what went by. She wasn't abused, just neglected with no socialization, or exposure to the world.  Since coming into rescue, she has been exposed to all the things she could only hear before! She wasn't a house dog before, but she is enjoying the experience. Her rescuer taught her about going outside to potty, and she has been 100% in her current foster home. She loves to sit in someone's lap. She is quite a snuggler. She lived with TINY dogs, and she was fine with them. I have large dogs, and she has adapted to them as well. She seems willing to learn. She is really good with cats! When she isn't agitated about something, she is a quiet little dog. The longer she has been here, the fewer things cause her to worry.  She likes being outside, but doesn't like to go outside alone. She acts like she thinks you won't let her back in? We leash her and she goes out willingly and stays out to take care of business.  She is quite seriously food aggressive. We deal with that by feeding her away from the other dogs, and removing her bowl when she is finished. She knows to sit and wait while you put her food bowl down. It is essential that she go to a home where they understand that you NEVER try to take her bowl while she is eating. When she was first here, she guarded her bed, her crate, her bowl... When she settled a little (a day or two) she has stopped guarding anything that isn't her food.

Rhiley is a 4 year old red/white smoothcoat border collie.  She is active and loves to play Frisbee.  Although she is find meeting dogs out and about, she would love to have a home with no dogs; cats are okay.  She is on the smaller side - about 32 lbs.  Rhiley is housetrained and knows about dog doors.  She has basic obedience commands and is very smart.  
Arriving soon!
Meet Chase, who we believe to be around 4 years old who is looking for a new home due to the allergies of his owners. Chase is neutered and up to date on his shots. He will need a fenced area as he measures up to his name quite well, he will take you on a chase to bring him back home. He does great with other dogs but we've never seen him around cats before. Chase knows and understands basic commands such as sit, stay, and lay down. He can also be stubborn at times with his quirky personality but overall a wonderful dog. He is very devoted to his family and sleeps outside of the bedroom doors of our kids or right in the room next to their beds.  
Carson is a medium energy 4-5 year old Border Collie mix. His ideal weight is around 40 pounds. Carson is a lovely dog who walks nicely on a leash. He enjoys being brushed and will "purr" with delight when he receives attention. Carson is house-trained.  He's good with kids and good with other dogs. 
Update from his foster home:   His hip bothers him sometimes but mostly he is very calm and happy boy. He loves his walks and behaves both off leash and on. His preference would be to be the primary dog, but he has always gotten along well with my sister's Aussies and other dogs we visit. He has the "I want to be closest to you" type of behaviors so that he tries to get between a you and another dog - then he will flop on his back to have his belly rubbed. Sometimes at the dog park, he will give some lip to other dogs asking for his space, but he never gets aggressive. He likes soft and squeaky toys which he does not chew up. He can almost fetch them but mostly not. He likes to dash after them when I throw them up in the air.  He does not really like cars until he is in them. I do have to pick him up to load him into my CRV. Once in the car, he rides fairly well. He likes to dance with you when music is on.Only thing he likes to chase is squirrels. He does great with cats. Prefers to be near you. He does not like big noises, clangs, clonks, and especially not the sound of guns. He is very quiet, but will speak if you howl with him. Greets people beautifully except for occasionally trying to jump up. Respects trash cans and surfaces. Does not scrounge your dropped crumbs.  He is a great boy and we love him dearly - maybe you will too.

Blue is a beautiful, easy going blue heeler/black lab. He is a very loving boy who enjoys the company of other dogs, and loves people and children. He loves to go on walks, and is very gentle on the leash. He loves his crate where he sleeps at night, and will even go in his crate on his own for some quiet time during the day. There are a few things that excite Blue, and one of them is that he loves to eat, and he is currently working on waiting patiently for his food (he typically barks and jumps at the dog gate to show his excitement!). He also gets very excited when he sees a cat, so the foster is not quite sure if he is good with them, or not, due to his excitement. Blue is wonderful with kids, and has had excellent behavior around his fosters’ four year old little boy. He is a mellow boy who loves to be massaged, brushed, and loved on. He will bark if there is something to bark at, such as a motion light going on in the middle of the night. Blue’s only negatives are that he chews when he is bored, and will at times eat what he chews on. He is still young 1 to 2 years old, so hopefully he will grow out of this.  A good potential adopter for Blue will be someone/family that can spend quality time with him each day as a full member of their family. He is very social and playful with other dogs, so his foster does think that another dog in the family would be good for him. He is house trained, and does not “mark” outside. He will cry/whine in his crate if he ever needs to go potty during the night, which is rare. Blue is a sensitive boy who thrives on positive reinforcement. He sits, shakes, and often will sit straight on his hind legs hoping for a treat! He is adorable! Blue is around 2 years old, neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Blue is fostered in Central Utah.
Bear is a three year old neutered male aussie mix and weighs 54 lbs. He is very social and is fine with dogs, cats and people. Bear loves water and his long legs yearn to go on adventures. He is house broken, crate trained and is brushing up on his loose leash walking skills.
July is a delight! She is a 1 year old border collie. She  is soft, willing and wants to learn. I think she is a good sports dog/running buddy/hiking buddy candidate.  A wonderful dog. She is house trained, crate trained (she loves her crate), and has learned sit, down, stay and 'here'. She is a GREAT running and hiking buddy (though she is still on leash). She loves all 'big' people we have met; she is somewhat reserved, but NOT timid or shy. She loves attention and being fawned over.... : )  She isn't fond of small children. She didn't offer to do anything, but at times, if one of our younger grandkids (under 6 yrs old) approached, she would bark at them. Given the chance she always retreats - and she was never in a situation where she might be aggressive.   I think she would be better off in a home without toddlers. There is no aggression in July - just apprehension. She is not above pushing boundaries, so needs a home with kind, firm and consistent boundaries. She would love to be in charge of the world, so needs a home where she is a part of everything, but in charge of very little : )  She is shaping up to be a high drive, high energy and very herdy girl. She needs to go to a BC savvy home. She has incredible herding instinct and is still quite malleable with no bad herding habits. She would be an awesome herding dog, or a great sports dog candidate. She generally does well with other dogs; she has met one dog (our son's snarky female BC) that she didn't like but after a word of correction, they worked through it without incident. She wants to herd the horses. She is improving, but will need continued work and positive reinforcement when she is not fixated on the horses to be trustworthy. She is pretty interested in the cats, but only in a game of chase. If they won't run, she doesn't bother them. She would do fine with dog-savvy cats. All in all, July is a wonderful, classically beautiful, herdy, athletic, smart, fun typical young female Border Collie!
Arriving soon!
Hi, I'm Mini. I'm an approximately 10 month old toy Australian shepherd mix and weigh about 10 lbs. I'm very sweet and absolutely love people! It took me a few days to warm up to my foster siblings but I'm doing well with other dogs now. I prefer dogs my own size. I'm very polite and will sit when asked. I'm learning lots of new things too. I like to follow my people around and lounge at their feet while they get work done or run in the yard with them. I'm very quiet and am learning that the crate means treats and nap time. I was in a shelter so I'm still learning to use the restroom outside but so far I hear I'm doing an awesome job.
I'm Sorbet, a 4 month old chihuahua mix. I may not be a herding dog but I'm sure glad they pulled me from the scary shelter with my friend Snickers (also available through Herd)! I'm a very playful pup and love exploring everything from sticks in the yard to pieces of food hidden in a kong!  I love playing with my foster siblings, especially the ones around my own size (10lbs). I have some very big ears and am using them to learn new things like "sit" and "down."  I'm very good about being in my crate and like to sleep in there with my cozy blankets and a chew toy. I'm very energetic and love to play but am also ready to snuggle whenever you are! I'm really hoping to find my forever home and people who will help me learn what it's like to be part of a family!
​Sue is a 2 year old Border Collie.  Sweet but shy.  She loves other dogs.  This girl has loads of potential.
Hi, my name is Snickers and I'm a very sweet 5 month old female Chihuahua mix I may not be a great herding dog but I have a lot going for me!
 I love snuggling and having my belly rubbed and ears scratched. I snuggle very nicely with my little foster dog friends and am getting used to the big golden retriever I live with.
 I'm definitely new to being around people and will curl up when I get frightened but I'm coming out of my shell and am going to be an amazing family member if someone will give me the opportunity
Dean is a loveable affectionate dog with a heart of gold and a need to run. He desires open space and freedom from the confines of a suburban life. He enjoys long walks as-well-as leash free runs. He prefers to stay in sight of his person, but he won't hesitate to run down a jack rabbit or two. He is tolerant of other animals; however, he would do best as the only animal in a household, as he likes to be the center of attention. For him the best situation would be free of children as well. For him there is nothing better than a quiet space for him to love on and be held by his person. He enjoys snuggles and a good game of tug-of-war. He also loves nothing more than antlers and cheese. When provided he plays with bubbles and cold water from a sprinkler to play with. Dean is housebroken and has never damaged furniture. Dean is very protective of his home and will alert his person when someone come to thr door. He truly is a gift and a passionate companion.
