Thomas is a border collie/corgi mix.  He is about 7 years old.  He is a character but probably needs an experienced and firm home as he will push limits when permitted.
Wrigley is a neutered 11 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.

Opie is a very smart, higher energy Border/Aussie mix. He knows verbal and hand commands for come, sit, stay, heel, roll over, back up, bring me your ball “no, the other ball”, he learns commands often after just a couple instructions, and loves to fetch balls and frisbees. He will be your hiking buddy as he loves the trails and is particularly good off leash but will heel when told to. While very anxious to go on walks, he will chill out with you in the evening. He is neutered and up to date on vaccinations. Being a smart active dog, he does best with plenty of exercise and stimulation such as daily walks, instructions, ball chasing, and going for rides.  
Opie endured some rough times before he came into Herd and has made great progress, however, he still has some food aggression, and over- excitement issues to work out with his forever home. But on his walks, he enjoys meeting other people and friendly dogs. At this time, it is recommended that Opie not be in a home with young children. He has gotten used to our cats but is still a little wary of them when they get close. We think he would be best with an active family where he has a job to do and be in the company of his people. He has been diagnosed with Pannus requiring daily drops in his eyes which he takes very well.

Princess is a 1.5 year old Australian Shepherd mix.  She has a gorgeous fluffy tail!  Princess may do best in a home with no other dogs as she has some food aggression, but with a little management could be in a home with other dogs as well.  She will need to continue her obedience training and manners in her new home.  She is nervous with new people, but very lovey when she warms up to someone.  This is a girl who wants very much to please and would like to melt your heart with her big puppy-dog eyes.  She likes hikes and lots of treats.
From Dora's current home: We have had Dora for the last five years.  She was about 4 months old when she came to us. 
Dora has many very lovely qualities. She's very nurturing and always keeps an eye on her pack to make sure they are all cared for. She's been excellent with children (we have a two year old daughter), and she's very loving toward all her people. 
The issue we are having is that she started attacking our other female terrier/chihuahua mix shortly before our daughter was born. We have been keeping the dogs separated for the last 3 years. In that time, Dora has lived peacefully with as many as 4 male dogs, all of various breeds, sizes, and ages. While on walks around our neighborhood, Dora is not aggressive when encountering other dogs. In fact, she prefers to avoid other dogs that she meets when we're out and about. She is crate trained, does very well on a leash, and has had some basic obedience training. She has never been exposed to cats so we don't know how she would do with them. She is up to date on all shots, has no known health issues, and just had a dental at the end of February. We think she would do very well in a home as an only dog or with male dogs only. 
​Ranger is a 3 year old Border Collie/Great Pyrenees/Weimeraner/Saluki mix.  He is neutered and weighs about 75-80 lbs.  Ranger is a fairly calm dog who loves hanging out with his person and getting rubs.  He likes going on leashed hikes and soaking in the sun.  Ranger needs a  home with no children.  Due to socialization issues, Ranger needs a home without too much contact with strangers and proper management.
Sadie Rose is a spayed female Australian Kelpie/Border Collie mix.  She is a smaller frame girl, probably about 35-40 lbs when at a good weight.  She has some socialization issues and needs a home that understands and will work with her on her reaction to strangers.  She is great with other dogs, but needs a home with no cats.
Luna is awesome. She's a 3 yr old, prior owners who got ahold of the shelter told them she's a heeler/husky/aussie/pit mix. She is higher energy. Big fan of people and loves to cuddle. Will bring me her toys to throw all day. I think she'll be a good candidate for a trail running partner. She ran with my roommate today and did great! (Just 2 miles for a start). She does well with other dogs that she knows and lives with but is reactive when she sees unfamiliar dogs. Crates up super easily and loves to ride in the car. I think she's about 45 pounds.  Luna can be obsessive about lights. 
Mac is a 1.5 year old neutered male Australian Kelpie.  He is quite shy and will need a loving, patient, quiet home.  He is good with other dogs.

Zeb is a smoothcoat border collie.  He is tall and rangy, probably about 45 lbs.  He is good with other dogs and cats.  He likes to play a bit of fetch with people or just snuggle and get rubs.  He appears house-trained.

Deuce is a 2-3 year old Belgian Malinois.  He has an excellent temperament and we would love to see him go to a sport dog home.

Ruby is a 3 year old Australian Cattledog.  Ruby loves hers humans. From her previous home we know she does well with older kids and she is quite cuddly. Ruby is kennel trained, knows sit, stay, and release (we have been using the word free) and she is threshold trained to keep her out of specific rooms. She also has great recall and stays close by. She does well with other dogs around her size and smaller in the home but may need some time to warm up to them and figure out her role in the pack. She can be quite nervous around strange dogs on walks but does better on hikes when others aren't in her personal space (we believe this may be a combination of fear and leash aggression since she was mostly off leash in her previous home.) She is toy and food motivated and will happily bring you dog toys to throw for hours if you let her. Once she warms up she does well with being brushed, groomed, and nail care.  Ultimately she is a great dog in the home but struggles socializing outside of it where she doesn't feel safe/confident.

Duke's life motto is "Love Hard and Play Harder." He's a 9 month old mini aussie/cattledog mix who thinks strangers – both human and canine – are just friends he hasn't met yet. He's a sweet and confident little boy looking for his forever family.

He's very smart and very energetic with a touch of that Aussie mischievousness. He's great on the leash and is learning to be a good running buddy. He wants to be part of everything, and we're working on separation and self soothing. 

He's a busy boy and does well with toys that engage him and make him think. He'll toss himself a ball or toy and have fun chasing and running after it. He's always on the go and will need someone who can help him channel his energy away from mischief and into fun. 

Duke will make a great running, hiking, biking buddy. He'll excel at agility and other sport games. He's quick and he aims to please. He settles right down at night and lets you sleep in the morning. He does seem to have a high chase drive and won't do well with small pets like chickens or rabbits. He'd love to have older children in his life, but may be too excited for smaller children and could knock them over.  

Duke is a really good dog, and he's going to be the best dog with some consistency and boundaries training. And with a family that will exercise his brain and body several times a day.
