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.
Finn is a 1-2 year old neutered male border collie. He is a small (35#ish), medium drive dog with a really nice off switch. His fur is course and nappy, even after a bath. A couple months on good food and he’ll be soft and fluffy in no time! He loves affection, enjoys couch cuddles as much as running in my fields and asks for attention very politely. He is super food motivated but has little to no interest in toys. He takes treats politely, even when the other dogs are nearby. Finn is very sweet and affectionate with people and neutral with the dogs he’s met so far. Once he warms up to a dog, he likes to play the typical border collie chase games. He likes his space when inside and will gently let the other dogs know to leave him alone when he’s on his bed or in a kennel. It’s a very appropriate lip curl or low growl and my dogs just walk away. Outside of these two spaces, he appears neutral to whatever is happening around him. I’m unsure how he would react to a dog that pushed those boundaries so a meet and greet is absolutely necessary if there are other dogs in the home. Because of this, I also recommend feeding him separately. He is neutral when meeting dogs outside face to face and has met dogs politely through a fence. He came house and kennel trained so my guess is, he spent time inside for part or all of his life. He kenneled himself on his first night here and so far has not had any accidents or tried to mark. He doesn’t chew things and is well behaved inside but will counter/trash surf if given the opportunity. Don’t leave food on the counter or the trash can open and this won’t be a problem. When he feels pressured, he clacks his teeth or air snaps. I do not believe he would intentionally bite someone and this is his warning signal that he’s had enough. For this reason, it is not recommended he go to a home with younger, face level children that don’t understand boundaries. He’s a fast learner. He knows sit and can down with some coaxing. His recall is mediocre and will need work before setting him free on a trail. He will need a secure yard!!!! He’s a true escape artist and will go on a walk about every chance he gets. He can NOT be left alone in a yard, ever! Overall, he is a very nice dog with the typical border collie quirks and lots of potential. 
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.
Markie is a 6 year old mixed breed dog (Australian Shepherd mix?).  He lost a rear leg in an accident as a puppy, but gets around with 3 just fine.  He is a friendly boy who wants a loving home.  He has mostly been chained outside in his former life so would like a home where he can be inside and part the family.
Ruby is a 3 yr old Border Collie/Heeler mix. Ruby gets along with the Aussie in her foster home. She loves people and is good with kids.  She is housebroken, spayed, micro-chipped, and current on vaccinations.
Max is a black and white Australian Shepherd mix.
Dottie is a 2-3 yrs old border collie. She is very sweet but a little skittish. She is loyal and will follow you anywhere you go. She does well with other dogs and is fine with cats. She came into a shelter as a stray so her past is a mystery. She loves to go out for hikes but is pretty easy going. She is happy to chill close to her person. Because of her timid nature, a relatively calm home would be best for her. 
Once she relaxes, she has a funny, outgoing personality! She is working on house breaking and basic obedience skills. She is spayed and current on vaccinations. 
Sully is a 6-7 month old border collie mix puppy.
