Quirk is a 3 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.
Max is a lovely 1 year old Australian Cattledog.  He loves to have other dogs to roughhouse with and might also learn to play fetch.  He is neutered and current on vaccinations.  The ideal home for Max would be one where he would have a job.  We can definitely see him herding cows if he had the training.
​We’ve had some time to get to know Rally in foster care and have discovered his LOVE for people is unwavering! This 65lb. Aussie mix has a big heart, loves to snuggle, and can learn any new trick quickly since he’s so treat motivated. Rally loves to be outdoors and with his long legs and sturdy build, he is an excellent hiking companion. He would need a good amount of daily exercise to continue to be his happy self! Rally found himself in a shelter after being picked up as a stray, so we don’t know much about his past. Rally is selective with other dogs and would ideally like to be the only dog because he loves to be the center of attention. Rally’s ideal home would be an active couple or single person who are willing to work with him to get him to his full potential (and from what we’ve seen, the sky is the limit), a home that loves to be the world to their dog, and NO CATS. We believe he’s around 3-4 years old, he’s fully vetted, and he's more than ready to find his forever home!  
Dallas is a 6 year old Australian Shepherd/Border Collie/Cattledog mix.  He is super affectionate with his owner and likes to sleep under the covers when its cold out.  Dallas tends to make questionable decisions in ambiguous situations and needs a handler with a quiet lifestyle and good management skills.
Wrigley is a neutered 8-9 year old​ Australian Shepherd with a tail.  He's had a tough past and will need a patient person who is willing to accept his quirks.  He can be very loving and is a handsome boy.  He does have high anxiety and a few behaviors such as pulling on a leash and not tolerating grooming well.

This gorgeous fluffy girl is Cali. She is a 3 year old Australian Shepherd. Cali is deaf and will need an adopter who has experience with deaf dogs or who is willing to put time and effort into learning to communicate with her. Cali is a smart girl and is very people focused. She is somewhat interested interested in learning sign language but since she does not seem to have learned any sign language growing up it is not a priority to her. She LOVES to go on walks and hikes, and likes to bark when she is happy or excited about fun activities. She can’t hear her own bark, but you sure will! If you are interested in adopting her, please consider if this may be an issue for your neighbors. Cali weighs about 55lbs and is a high energy dog needing regular exercise. She is a great running partner. She adores people, has great dog manners, is friendly with dog-savvy cats and she loves to play with all species. Cali has learned to walk with a head collar and does very well with it. While she is house trained and crate trained, she does have some unfortunate habits like trying to walk over the dining table and other furniture when pursuing the shortest route from A to B. She loves toys of all kinds, including fluffy toys, tennis balls, and chew toys. She copes with her deafness with a sense of humor. When you gesture that you want her to go outside and she doesn’t want to, she will roll on her back instead for a belly rub. Sometimes she looks away when she knows what you want but doesn’t like to “hear” it. She is very cuddly and thinks she is a lap dog. A sturdy lap is therefore recommended for Cali. 
Victoria is approximately 2 years old.  She is a mixed breed with maybe some border collie, maybe some lab?  Lots of sweetheart!  She was a little skittish at first, but to be expected in a new surrounding. She gets along with dogs and cats.  After two days she was a confident, rambunctious girl and very playful. She has not had any training and is a completely blank slate.  She loves to snuggle. Hope she finds her forever home soon, she's a sweet girl.  She's a good dog, smart, affectionate, good on leash, housebroken, knows basic commands, loves other dogs and people. Good kid dog, running dog, playpal for other dogs and can be calm inside, but not a fit for apartment life as she can be vocal and needs a yard to burn off energy. 
Fletch is cattle dog lovers cattle dog! He is alert, curious, fun loving, sweet, independent, loyal, curious and a bit goofy at times all in a wonderful package with stunning good looks! Fletch loves his people and wants to be with them whenever possible. He is a cuddle bug, wrestler and fetcher – fun and love is the name of his game! Fletch is a beautiful 3-4 year old white ACD with black ticking. Everyone comments on his good looks! His cute black ears, great smile and bubbly personality endear him to everyone he meets.

Fletch came to HeRD of Wyoming from a rural shelter where he was picked up as a stray, so little is known of his past. He was in the shelter for 4 months before HeRD found him. We suspect at some point in his life he was loved and cared for, and he desperately wants to have that again. Fletch has been terribly misunderstood. He is protective and can be cautious at times. When people do not understand his protectiveness they discard him (and it really hurts his heartL) He needs someone who will be committed to him and will work with him to help him understand when protectiveness is appropriate, and when he needs to chill. He is NOT overly protective but definitely requires a person/family who understands cattle dogs. He will be awesome in the right home!

Fletch does well with female dogs, but does not like the challenge of another male dog in his house. He loves children and is very soft and kind with them, but like most Cattle Dogs, should be supervised with small children. In Fletch's world cats are meant to be chased. He doesn't seem to want to hurt them, but he thinks chasing cats is almost as good as chasing cows.  

All in all, if you love cattle dogs – you will LOVE Fletch! And you will have an adventure buddy who lives to make you smile!​
​Tina is a 1 year old Australian Cattledog/Kelpie.  She is a spunky girl who would do best in a home that is active and keeps her mind busy.  She loves to wrestle with other dogs.  Toys are a must.  She does settle well once she is done playing.  She is a compact girl, about 30 lbs.  Because she can be a bit mouthy when playing, a home with small children is not recommended.  Tina is curious about cats, but would probably be okay in a home with a very stand-up cat and some supervision through the adjustment phase.  
Lola is around 14 months old and does well with kids, males, females, dogs and cats. She knows her commands of ‘sit’ ‘lay’ ‘shake’ ‘stay’.  Her current owner lives in an apartment that is small and works a full time job.  She has a tendency of destructiveness due to separation anxiety and she can jumps fences. All in all, she is a kind hearted dog that needs a home that will fit her lifestyle. She loves to run and has work ability.  She is active, extremely sweet, and has great manners. However, the lifestyle of her current owner does not match the lifestyle she needs. 
From Scooter's current owner:
Scooter, our australian cattle dog, is about a year old.  He is kennel and potty trained. When he is excited he does pee a little bit. We are looking for a good home for him.  He loves attention and to play fetch. Very energetic dog.  He does nip and gets up in peoples face all the time. He has a lot of energy and needs a big yard. Will probably do better with older children as he does knock kids down. He has started growling at our two year old and snaps meanly when close. Slow to warm up to people but craves attention. We have two small dogs he does well with. Not sure with bigger dogs.  Will do well in an environment where he has space and can get out energy. Enjoys going on walks.
​Cookie is a 1 year old Chihuahua.  She is just as sweet as she looks!  She weighs about 8 lbs, but doesnt know she is a little dog.  She likes to play with the big dogs (and is faster than most of them!). She loves to give kisses to people, even if she has just met them.  Cookie is great with kids, but needs a family that understands she is not a toy to be dragged around.  Cookie loves to sleep in bed with her people.  With a little training, Cookie could even become an agility dog or a therapy dog.  
Opie is a three year old Border Collie.  He is neutered and up to date on vaccinations.  He likes to retrieve and play with toys.  Opie would do best in an active home that does not have dominant male dogs.  We also recommend he go to a home with no small children.  Opie will chase cats for fun although he doesn't hurt them.  Opie is a great hiking or horseback companion.
​These little cuties are about 12 weeks old.  Their mom appears to be a chihuahua and they are currently about 5 lbs so will be very small dogs.  The black and white one (Caden) and the brown and white one (Carl) are still available.
Toots is a 10-year old spayed tri-color Australian Shepherd. She is as sweet as they come and is good with all people, other dogs and cats. She came into rescue when her owner had to go into hospice and it is obvious that she had a loving home. Toots is overweight but generally healthy and is getting good food and exercise so should slim down.
Georgina is a 2 year old black and white Australian Shepherd.  She is a sweet girl and has some nice basic foundations.  She can be a little possessive of toys and people and would do best in a home with no small children.  This girl has some great sport potential for agility or disc etc.  She definitely needs an active home.
Ghost is a 1-1 ½ year old neutered Australian Shepherd that wants to be your buddy. He is house broke, knows his basic commands, and is really smart so could teach him more. He is also showing interest in working sheep. Ghost is up to date on his rabies. He gets along with female dogs but not males.
​Verkin is a 4-5 year old Australian Shepherd.  He is a big guy, about 55 lbs.  He would do best in an experienced home that will get him lots of exercise.  A home without small children is a must for Verkin.  
Willie is an 8 month old Australian Shepherd.  He was surrendered when he broke a leg.  He has now had surgery to repair his leg and needs a loving and patient home that will help him through his rehab. Willie is a very sweet, loving and energetic dog. Since he is healing from a broken leg we haven't seen his full playfulness, but the hints of playfulness we have seen make us believe that he will be a great dog to go out and play fetch, frisbee or just run around with. He loves to give kisses and LOVES belly rubs. He will roll over when anyone tries to pet him to encourage his belly getting rubbed. He has been around kids about age 5 to pre-teen. He is great with them so far and loves them to just love on him. Again, because of the broken leg we do not know if he has herding tendencies like nipping when the kids run around. We have a border collie and aussie and he gets along with them great. Him and our aussie will just lay on the floor and paw at each other since he cant rough house to much, but i am sure they would be wrestling and playing tug of war if Willie could be a little more playful. Car rides are okay with him, but getting into the car could use a little more training. He just seems nervous when being put in the car, but once driving he doesn't seem bothered by it. As far as walking on a leash, he seems to do okay walking from the house to the yard, but we haven't been able to do long walks due to healing. Overall he is a great dog and will make any family, couple or single person happy. 
Jewels (her foster family calls her Petunia) is a young smooth coated Border Collie mix. Less then a year old, she still has lots of puppy silly and learns very quickly.  She is excellent with all the dogs in her foster home. She would love to live with another playful dog, but would respect an older friend who doesn't want to play.  Good with the cat, curious sniffing while the kitty rubs on her.
She adores people however people in her past must have been heavy handed. If a new person pets her in the intial greeting she will submissively urinate. We have been asking that she is given 10 minutes to settle and the behavior has improved. I feel as she grows in confidence this will stop.  She is great with the 7 and 10 year children, she does still do playful mouthing and jumping up so she does need work before she could be unsupervised with smaller kids.  She is crate trained, and working on house breaking. She has started going to the door to ask to go out. She has been great about chewing only on dog toys but can't have blankets in her crate.  Petunia is the easiest foster I've had, she is so loving and wants nothing more than to be by her people's side. She obviously wasn't treated well in her past, probably had never been in a house prior to rescue. She is so willing to leave all that behind and give her heart to a family.

​Raina is a very beautiful and athletic 8 year old red heeler. She is a good hiking dog and has taken agility classes. She is very well behaved and is also a snuggle puppy. She loves to fetch!  She needs to be an only dog and must live in a home that does not have cats or small children.
