Rook
Rook is a fun loving and active dog. He is 4 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
Wrigley is a 7 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?
Quirk
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
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.
Genny
Genny is a young female heeler cross. She is ever so sweet and loves her people.  Genny is house broken and knows sit.  Genny crates well and is a love to have around.  She does like to chase things that move, including cars, so will need a fenced yard.  NO CATS.
Snickers
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
Shadow

​Max
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.
​Australian shepherd or Border Collie or Shepherd mix female puppy. 7 months old. Sansa - Looking for a 4-legged friend to share long strolls with, snuggle up on a cold night, and chase those squirrels out of your yard? Sansa would be the perfect fit! She loves her people, she loves to run. She is kennel/crate trained and knows basic commands. She is house trained with a doggie door. She's not the fondest of car rides, but when she gets to where she's going and relaxes, she is good. She is a protector, you will know if a stranger comes on your property and a good steak (she's never had steak, just treats and canned food which is her favorite) is the only thing that will bring her close to them. She is food motivated, and I think you'll be able to train her to do anything. She loves to run, and please. She is submissive and head shy unless she trusts you (even then she may piddle).  

Sansa
Rangely
​Rangeley is a spayed female Australian Cattle Dog (red heeler) and is approximately seven years old. She is in excellent health (recently had blood work and a check-up at the vet). She has developed very mild incontinence, which the vet assured us is common in female dogs of her age, but we have been able to control that issue 100% with use of a twice daily medicine called Proin. Rangeley has many excellent qualities. She loves people --- both her people and meeting new people. She is very cuddly and attentive to people and LOVES a good belly scratch. Rangeley is very athletic and loves to run, play frisbee, hike, race around in the snow, and swim. She really enjoys coming with us when we backcountry ski or snowshoe. In short, she's an awesome adventure companion. Rangeley also as some challenging qualities that need to be managed. She is not trustworthy around babies, children, or cats and should be in a home without them. Rangeley has a vendetta against big, noisy trucks. She will chase them if not leashed! As a result, she should only be allowed to romp off leash on trails/in areas where there is no traffic nearby. Rangeley has become reactive toward unfamiliar dogs when she is on leash. We are now walking her with a head collar, which makes the behavior easier to control. She also loves treats and can often be distracted with them. Although Rangeley has issues with unfamiliar dogs on walks, she has many good dog friends who we've introduced her to in our home. She has done really well with friends dogs when properly introduced.  

Nash
Nash is a 4 yr old blue heeler/border collie cross. He was brought into the animal shelter in Bozeman by a concerned neighbor of the former owner when he was 1 yr old, after being hit by a car and left for dead in his backyard. The shelter staff and generous veterinarians performed multiple surgeries on Nash to repair his broken pelvis and back, and he also had an FHO on the right side. The current owner fostered him after his surgeries and adopted him after his medical foster. Three years after his accident, you cannot tell that Nash ever had such a difficult start. He is vivacious and energetic and loves to work and play. He is good with other dogs and has been in doggie day care and boarding situations with new dogs frequently. Ultimately, he needs a home that can provide daily stimulation beyond what his current home can provide. His owners now work out of town and he is unable to go to work with them like he did initially. This means he isn't getting the attention he deserves and craves. He would do well in a home with other dogs and an active family. He is rambunctious so babies and toddlers may not be the best companions for him. He is friendly with all people, but does have a hard time controlling his excitement. He lives currently with children 8 and up and loves to play with them. He does have the tendency to chew paper products if he doesn't get his daily exercise. He is smart and listens well to those he has a deep connection with, although he does struggle to listen when he is actively "working" and herding his dog friends at the park. Nash loves to cuddle and sleep at the foot of the bed on the floor. He is afraid of fireworks and will find a hiding place during most 4th of July activities. He does ok off leash when with other dogs, but very well with just humans with no dog distractions. 
Sherlock
This handsome and intelligent cattledog is Sherlock.  Sherlock is a 5 year old neutered male.  Like most cattledogs, he is a loyal loving boy who will do best in a home that is familiar with cattledogs.  He is looking for a new home because his owner has moved from a country living situation to a small home in town and has not adjusted well.  He can be snippy and nervous with new people and needs a person who helps build his confidence and sets appropriate limits for him.  He has worked with a trainer and videos from his time in training are available to approved applicants.  Sherlock would do best in a home without children.  Sherlock is okay with cats when supervised but as a precaution should not be left unattended with them.
Cinnamon
Cinnamon is a young spayed female Kelpie/German Shepherd mix.  She is a big girl, maybe 55 lbs.  She is mellow and takes new situations in stride.  She likes dogs that don't try to start fights and thinks people are great.  A real cuddler, this one.
George
​George is almost 1 year old.  He is cattledog/border collie, and several additional breeds.  He is a smart, fun, goofball.  George is neutered and current on vaccinations.
Varly
​Varly is a 2.5 year old Australian Shepherd mix.  He needs a very experienced home that is confident working a dog through significant leash reactivity.
Rally
​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!  
Boscoe
​Owner listing:  Boscoe is a 4 year old Catahoula Leopard dog. He needs a home that doesn't have small children. He needs somewhere he can be the only male dog or around another male dog that is non dominant. He is super sweet and a great snuggler but hates thunderstorms and just wants to be in your lap. He bit my son after he grabbed his bone, but we haven't ever had any other times that he has gotten aggressive with us, he just gets possessive over his food and bones. Doesn't really care for toys, but loves to play catch, especially when you throw into the water.
​Owner Listing:  Circumstances, specifically travel, have created a situation where I really need to put two (2) male, almost 4-year old, ¾ Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler)/ ¼ Border Collie mix dogs up for adoption. They are full brothers named “Butch” and “Sundance.” Sundance has been neutered. Butch, who is unbelievably mellow, still needs to be. They are virtually identical in appearance except that Sundance has a prominent white blaze on his forehead while Butch’s blaze is very muted, almost just a thin white line.
They are both in excellent physical condition weighing about 37 lbs each with absolutely no health problems. Both are energetic and love to play (or work). They are both very friendly and you have to be stern with them to control their enthusiasm. But a cross look, and a firm “No”, is enough for them to understand they need to “tone it down”. They just want to play and they play enthusiastically. They wouldn’t work for a family with babies or toddlers because they can get a bit rambunctious. But if you have teenagers or pre-teen kids who want to go out and play catch with these dogs, the kids will get bored and tired a lot sooner than these dogs. If you have kids over 10 who want to get involved in agility and other kinds of performance dog shows, these two are athletic herding “nuts”.
I have no idea how they will react to other dogs.  They are not destructive and haven’t dug up any plants or anything in the garden. They do chase squirrels and cats.

Moon
​Big loveable Blue dog seeking high adventure companion(s) to share life and undying love with!
You only find a dog like Moon once in a Blue Moon. Moon is 3-4 years old and is big, strong, athletic, smart, loyal, high energy, sweet, lovable and blue! Blue Border collies are not common. They are born gray and as they age they darken and may look like a classic black and white, until they are next to a black and white, then you can definitely see their blue (gray) color. This color comes from a recessive dilute gene. Moon is a beautiful true blue Border collie, and is very striking! (Learn more about blue color in BCs at www. bordercolliemuseum.org)
Moon doesn’t rest on his looks alone. He has refined the art of loving and being with his people. Moon’s perfect day consists of a long run or hike, coming home and crashing until evening, playing a few games and/or leaning a new skill, going on another short adventure, having some snuggle time and then sleeping like a baby the entire night.  
Moon is an awesome running buddy, and we suspect he will love mountain biking as well. Moon MUST have a good dose of vigorous exercise every day. He also needs mental stimulation to help his ever-active, brilliant brain focus. Physical exercise alone will not be enough for the Moon Man. When he gets both physical and mental stimulation he is a PERFECT dog!
Moon does very well with all people. He enjoys children and is very gentle with them. Moon hasn’t met a dog he doesn’t like. He enjoys the company of other dogs, but certainly doesn’t need to have another dog in his home. He is living very happily with three female Border collies, and 1 male BC. He also does well with small dogs. He is good with cats, but is not above a good chase if the cat runs. Moon is great meeting people, dogs and bikers out on the trails. 
Moon has a heart of gold and is a cuddle bug! He oozes happiness and love and he is happiest curled up on your lap! This big boy (50 pounds and in need of at least 5 more) thinks he is a lap dog – and it is very sweet! He is gentle as he climbs up on your lap and calmly rests his chin on your shoulder. Often you will hear a huge sigh of contentment when he is cuddling.
Moon also has basic skills. He is completely house trained and crate trained, although he doesn’t need a crate and has been left free in his foster home for up to 6 hours. He knows “sit”, “down”, “wait”, “stay”, is good on leash, and is learning something new every day. True to his breed, Moon is very smart and loves to learn. He is a fun dog to teach!
Moon will require someone who is committed to enjoying the great outdoors with him. If he doesn’t get enough physical and mental stimulation he goes stir crazy. His mind and body CRAVE action and he will do what it takes to satisfy that craving. He is not a control freak and would prefer than his person create the action, but if his person lets him down and doesn’t get him out for an adventure, he will create his own  He is not destructive or whiney but he may take off on a long solo run if he has not had exercise and the door is open.
