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.
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 very active eight month old puppy. She is smart and easily trainable. She knows: sit, touch, shake, down, look at me, and wait. She also has excellent recall. Meiji enjoys car rides. She loves playing with other dogs and can easily entertain herself with a variety of dog toys. She does need practice meeting new people as she tends to bark at strangers. She is not completely housebroken. She is also a bit obsessed about drinking water and does not always like to share the water bowl.  
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 currently about 12 months old and weighs 39 lbs. She is a medium to high energy dog with a very sweet, enthusiastic personality. She gets along very well with the many dogs at her foster home and is house trained and crate trained. She is showing some inappropriate interest in cats and may need a home with no cats or good supervision with them. Suzie is more insecure than shy and needs a person who clearly takes the lead and is good at setting limits verbally in a consistent and calm manner. Besides clear expectations from her person to boost her confidence, Suzie also needs regular exercise. She loves to go on walks and hikes (may be a good running buddy as well) and does best with a head collar to keep her from pulling. Occasionally Suzie is startled and barks briefly when she hears new sounds or sees new people. She however responds very well to verbal corrections and reassurance, as well as treats as a reward when she does things right. Although she is a bit nervous about meeting strangers, Suzie is very curious about new people and loves attention from adults and polite older children. Suzie especially likes rope and rubbery toys to chew on, bones and rawhide. If not provided with chew toys she will get creative and find her own! Suzie is a terrific teen and gorgeous looking girl, a joy to have around. 
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.
​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.  
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.
Minni's puppies
July is a Border-Collie-Lovers Border Collie! She is a beautiful 14 month old tri-color fire ball! She loves life! She believes life is one big adventure. July is always smiling and happy to be alive. July has all the wonderful traits that Border collie lovers enjoy; intelligence, kindness, action, initiative, drive, desire to be with people, desire to learn, and a desire to please. July has a lot of herding instinct, so needs a home that understands, and is ready to help her appropriately channel that instinct. She is outgoing and fun-loving. Due to lack of socialization as a puppy, July is still learning how to meet new dogs appropriately. She is not aggressive, just over exuberant and loud. She wants to engage with new dogs, but her current behavior is somewhat off putting : ) She is getting better all the time! July is high energy, but not frenetic. After a good run she is very happy to lay down and chill for most of the afternoon. In the evening, she is ready to rock and roll again! A hike or a rousing game of fetch or tag in the evening does the trick! She is then ready to settle down. She loves attention and clearly wants to be doted on 24/7 – but is not obnoxious about demanding attention. She calmly looks you in the eye, or puts her head on your lap when she needs a little love. With her beautiful soulful eyes, she is pretty hard to resist. July has not had a lot of experience in the world, but when shown all the fun things waiting for her, she
jumps right in. She would love to be part of an active family who will include her in everything they do. She is not shy or timid. She is currently living very happily with three female Border Collies and one male BC. She loves to play with other dogs. She is intrigued by the barn cats when they are on the other side of the fence; if they are in the yard she follows them and will stare at them for hours. She does not chase them and is not aggressive, however, the cats in her foster home are very dog savvy and refuse to run from a non-threatening dog. We suspect July would love to chase a running cat : ) She initially was apprehensive about toddlers, but has come to think they are cute, especially if they can throw a ball or scratch her ears. She has come to love all children and is gentle with them. July is crate trained, house-trained, does pretty well on leash, knows basic commands and has nice manners.  If you love high energy Border Collies, can set firm, fair and consistent boundaries, and are willing to give July new positive experiences, she may be the dog for you! July will return your love a hundred fold and bring a lot of fun and joy into the lives of whoever is blessed enough to be her family! July’s foster family LOVES her. (It is a good thing they are maxed out on the number of resident dogs they can handle or July would not be up for adoption!)
June is a sweet energetic spayed female border collie. She loves to play with kids, with other dogs, or just by herself. She responds nicely when called back or told to leave it. She walks off leash with you and on leash. She is crate trained and stays in a pen when needed. She doesn't seem to have any major issues. She loves to sit with you on the couch and cuddle.   She would fit well in an active family where she can go and do things, she travels nicely in a vehicle too.
Minnie the toy aussie has an adoption pending.  However, she came into rescue pregnant and delivered 5 adorable puppies.  These are MIXED breed puppies so please don't inquire after their pedigree or how big they will get.  If you would like to be considered to adopt one of these great pups, please submit an application.  

We're Minnie's puppies. Born June 12th with the exception of late arrival, Ella who was born the 13th. We love snuggling, eating, sleeping and squeaking. Our mom is taking great care of us and we're hoping to find forever families that will love us just as much as she does!
 We'll be ready to go once we're weaned and have a chance to have our mom teach us some basic manners and to socialize us.

 These two gentlemen and three little ladies would love to be part of your family! Mom is a Toy Aussie, about 10 lbs and no one knows what were mixed with but we sure are cute!
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!
​Arriving soon!
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. 
Gentry is a gorgeous Australian Cattledog.  He has a lovely disposition.  He is missing a bit of one paw, so walks with a bit of a limp and wont be doing any sports competitions. He is just getting settled and his personality is coming out more and more. Gentry likes his space. He doesn't like other dogs getting in his face, I think he is just a bit vulnerable because of his three-legged status. He likes to be close to his foster mom, like a shadow but not underfoot. If given an opportunity, he would like to be a lap dog and when you attempt to stand up or move him over, he pushes back like he's saying, 'hey do you really need to stand up? Maybe you can sit awhile longer and rub my tummy and tell me how good I am.' He's definitely a herder. He likes to bite at the ankles of the other dogs. He has engaged in some play activity and the more comfortable he gets the more he will play. However, he likes to initiate play rather than for the other dogs to. I've walked him a few times and he loves it but his stamina is not good. He's great on a leash, however. Knows some basic commands. Good at recall. Seems housebroken but its early yet.  He likes eating laying down.  He does not go after the food of other dogs. I have his water dish elevated. Twice when I was outside in the back yard, he jumped on the kitchen counter to look out the window and he's a counter surfer and window watcher. He's a good guard dog and responds to night noises or strange noises in the back yard but is easily called off. He does cry a bit when I leave.  He would be fine with other dogs but would prefer to be the only one. He likes to wrestle in the grass with me and give me kisses. I've taken him in the car and he has problems keeping his balance but likes to hang his head out the window and loves to go for rides. None of his quirks or are anything big. He would make a good companion dog for a semi-active person willing to take him for short walks, car rides and love on him a lot.   He loves, loves and loves people, but older children would be better than younger children.  
Mia is a gorgeous mixed breed (best guess German Shepherd and Collie). She will weigh about 75 lbs once she is at a healthy weight. She has a very sweet and gentle personality and gets along great with all dogs and cats in her foster home. She is a medium energy dog and she LOVES to go on walks and to go hiking. Mia is very loyal and adores her people. She prefers to be near them all day but is very polite and not intrusive in any way. Mia is a happy girl who loves attention and takes treats gently. She is playful with other dogs who are not too rough and enjoys being part of a pack. Toys are new to her and she is still learning about them. Mia is house trained and crate trained, and does great on a leash. A terrific dog with no major issues.
Henry is a 2 year old neutered male Australian Cattledog.  He has a great personality and would be very dedicated to his owner.  He is nonreactive to other dogs and quite tolerant although not super playful with them.  He will play ball some with his person.  He is smart and attentive and walks well on a leash.

Sally is a spayed female red merle Australian Shepherd.  She weighs about 40 lbs so not big.  She is gentle and sweet.  Good with dogs and kids.

Friendly handsome Tex is so sweet, and he’s looking for a place to call home. Tex is a 8 year old long haired  purebred Border Collie who loves to play ball and fetch. Tex enjoys older kids and gets along well with other dogs. Tex likes having plenty of space to run and someone who can take him on fun walks. The only health issue is when Tex over works himself his front left foot will bother him and he takes a little medication for it as needed.  Tex is looking for a kind, fun and loving person/s to take care of him and call him family. Tex lost his owner to an illness. He’s great at talking and can say “Hi.” He’s wonderfully behaved with men, women, and older children. Tex needs a loving family and a forever home. 

Goose is a 40 lb 15 month old Border Collie mix who was adopted from a shelter 6 months ago. He has done well in his new home but is looking for a even better match. He currently lives on one acre with chickens and a heeler mix companion. He is fully house trained and also spent a month boarded with a professional dog trainer to learn to come, sit and stay because his owners just welcomed their first child and wanted a jump start on his training. He has responded well to his training and his trainer mentioned he needed a job and would be an asset to rancher or a owner that would give him daily tasks. We want to give him that chance! He is very friendly but needs to be supervised or crated when around children as he will nip and herd children if he has the opportunity. He gets along well with other dogs though he can dominate play time. He is fixed and up to date on all vaccinations and receives monthly heart-worm prevention.  Goose is a great dog and he deserves the chance to be happy.
Bear is a 2 year old neutered male Australian Shepherd.  He is a handsome dog that likes kids and wading pools.  Very smart and trainable.  He weighs about 40 lbs.
