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 Border Collie mix who is about 3.5 years old. He has not had a lot of training in his life but is so very eager to learn and please. He is as easy going as they come, extremely loving to all he meets both human and canine. Willing to chill in the house and always up for a game of fetch outside. He would make a wonderful pet for the right family. He is in need of someone who is willing to train him and see to it that he has the proper amount of exercise that is required by a Border Collie. Max DOES NOT make a good lawn ornament!! He does well on a leash and would make a fantastic hiking, running partner or I can easily see him excelling at agility. Max is neutered and up to date on shots.
​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.

Victoria is approximately 2 years old.  She is a mixed breed with maybe some border collie, maybe some lab, maybe Great Pyrenees?  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!​
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.
Moki is a 6 month old border collie mix, that looks like he could possibly have some flat coat retriever in the mix. He is a happy and exuberant boy but most likely has not had much experience being in a house. He is learning house training and basic manners and would do best in an experienced home with other dogs. Moki loves to play with toys and other dogs and is good with cats. At this time, he does not show any herding or retrieving inclinations but he has plenty of snuggling tendencies.
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.  
Petunia is a 1 year old border collie mix.  She is active and playful.  She really likes people but can have a little submissive urination when she is excited.  She will be a great companion.
​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.  
Maya and crew
​Maya is a 30 lb mixed breed (kelpie x border collie?)  She is a lovely dog.  Maya came into a small kill shelter pregnant and was pulled to safety in rescue to deliver beautiful babies.  There are 4 males and 3 females available.  These mixed breed pups and their mom will be looking for active, dedicated homes in a few weeks, so please submit your application now.  Please note that we do not place siblings together.
Aspen and pups
Major is thought to be a Chihuahua/Dachshund mix.  He is the cuddliest little buddy you will meet.  We suspect he is about 5-6 years old.  He is about 12 lbs currently, but will be closer to 14-15 lbs when he gets to an ideal weight.  He is good with dogs, kids, and cats.  Major is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped and ready for a forever home.
Aspen is a lovely border collie.  She has 4 puppies: 1 female and 3 males.  They will be available for adoption at 8 weeks of age, so please get  your application submitted.  Please note that we do not place siblings together.

Teddy is almost 7 years old, his birthday is September 26, 2011, he is a pure bred Miniature Australian Shepherd, he doesn’t shed, he has two coats and will blow his undercoat once per year.  He loves to run, play fetch, play in the snow and used to love to play frisbee. He knows sit, down, wait and he rings the bells that hang on our door to let us know that he needs to go outside to the bathroom. When he goes outside and we need him to hurry up and go to the bathroom, we tell him to get busy and he’ll go! Because I’m gone so much of the day he’s also trained to a pee pad, he’ll relieve himself just enough so that he can wait until I get home to take him out. However, every now and then he’ll miss the pee pad by just a bit so urine may be on the floor.  The only time that he’s ever damaged anything in the home was in the last few months we had some bad thunderstorms and he tore up a wicker basket and a cardboard box, I believe that this is due to him spending so much time alone.   He likes other dogs when he’s off leash at the dog park but doesn’t like to be approached by dogs if he’s on leash. I have a cat and they often play chase with each other and he’ll allow the cat to drink and eat from his bowls but they’re not affectionate towards each other, no cuddling or sleeping together.  I would like to see him in a home that has a fenced yard and possibly acreage.  Teddy sleeps on the corner of my bed and is very protective of me so if anyone approaches my bed, even my son or daughter he will growl at them.  He’s never been around small children so I don’t know how he would behave.
He nipped at two people when he was a puppy, I believe it was the way that they approached him with an open had on the top of his head vs. hand below the nose so that he could smell them first. We’ve not had any problems since that time. He does well with strangers in the home upon first meeting and does well with greeting new people at the dog park.
Raymond is approximately 12 months old and is current on vaccines, heartworm and flea preventive. He was relinquished by his owners after being hit by a car and sustaining a left femur fracture. He is five months out from repair of the femur fracture. We applied a plate for repair that was successful but not ideal. The implant was removed on May 4, 2018. Raymond’s left hind is slightly shorter than the right but he is comfortable and uses the leg well.  I do not suspect it will be much of an issue going forward.
During his convalescence he was kenneled a lot for activity restriction. During that time he was on trazodone for anxiety. He is still kenneled more than I would like but he is completely weaned off the trazodone. He is a great running buddy and works great on a gentle leader, he will maintain a pretty loose lead unless something triggers his “chase” or nose. Even though he was hit by a car, he would love to chase those wheels. It is very ingrained in his hard drive. And the louder the better! He is doing pretty awesome in his obedience class.
I think Raymond would do best in a home without small children. There are small children in my home but he is never with them without direct supervision. Raymond is extremely prey driven and I would fear that any small pets would be at extreme risk with him. So he would not be good in a home with cats and other small dogs. He has a lot of energy/excitement and needs a lot of activity so a farm or home with a fenced backyard. He does chase a ball, we have been working on that. I am not sure how much he was indoors the first part of his life. He has door anxiety and likes to explode through doors, we are working on that as well. He does like to put his mouth on things. At this point his nipping has been typical puppy behavior although I feel like it escalates when Raymond is not getting his way for example when we turn around on runs. Those behaviors are pretty easily turned around at this point when they are recognized. 
​From Buster's current family:  We are looking for a new home for our beloved Buster. He is a border collie/English shepherd cross, 18 months old. He is house broken, neutered, UTD on shots, obedience trained, and wonderful with all people, including kids. Unfortunately, he is not good with cats, which is why we cannot keep him. He has always lived with other dogs and gotten along with them well, but he is aggressive with new dogs. He was bred to be a working dog and I think would be a great cattle dog. He's very smart! And an avid frisbee player!  Buster has never hurt another animal, but I'm afraid he would if he had the opportunity. In every other way, he is nearly perfect. Very mellow and eager to please. He comes in the house every day and behaves beautifully; he sleeps right next to my bed with no trouble.  
Foxy - Arriving soon
Ghost B was born 11/15/14.  He is 70 pounds, neutered and up to date on vaccines. Ghost is a Catahoula x Border Collie He is a wonderful cow dog. He worked for a year with my husband on the Padlock Ranch in Sheridan. He loves to trail the back of a herd and make sure nobody runs back on you. He also has no hesitation about going to the front of a cow or bull and nipping them on the nose to get them turned around. Ghost has never shown any signs of aggression. He is a sweet dog that will work hard for you but at the end of the day would enjoy nothing more than to be pet and loved on. Good with other dogs. Not good with kids. Not good with cats. Good around horses. LOVES to be sprayed with the hose. Ghost will chase the stream of water for hours. He will swim in any body of water. 
Ghost B
Bonnie was born 1/20/15 and weighs 40 pounds.  She is spayed and UTD on vaccines.  Bonnie is an Idaho Shag Dog that came from a ranch out of working parents. She is a bit more reserved and was never tried on cows. With the right person, I believe she would work. Bonnie opens up quickly when you start to play with her. She would rather play than eat. Bonnie would do great in a home where she is the only dog and can play with her person every day. She loves to play ball and frisbee but honestly, any toy will do. Bonnie has never shown any signs of aggression. She has nipped our heels a few times but I honestly believe that is just because of her breed (she is several herding breeds mixed into one dog. I think she just has an overwhelming drive to herd but has never been given the opportunity to work).  Good with other dogs. Unknown with kids. Not good with cats. Good around horses. LOVES to be sprayed with the hose. She will chase the water around the yard for hours. Will also find any body of water to swim in and cool off. 
Hi, my name is Charly and I am an 8 year old Australian Shepherd from Colorado. I have a wonderful life here, getting to go on a hike everyday and enjoying being outdoors in the winter, keeping my family company on x-country ski outings. Life really couldn’t be any better for me except that I do suffer from anxiety and I can sometimes turn on my dog mates and inflict harm on them. I feel horrible after I do it and I don’t understand why I do, but I need to be the ONLY animal in the house. On my daily off leash hikes, I run into all kinds of dogs and love meeting them. I just don’t want to live with them.
After living with my family for 8 years, they have decided that it isn’t fair to the other animals in my home because they live in fear that I might turn on them again. I have never, ever turned on a human and my family doesn’t believe that I ever would. I am very sweet and affectionate to my human family and feel how much they love me.
In my perfect world, I would like to find a family with just adults in it because I have never been around children and when I see them in the park they actually make me nervous when they come up wanting to know if they can pet me. I want to find someone who loves to be outdoors and take me on car rides and explore new places to hike. I will go fetch the paper for you every morning and bring the Frisbee right back and hand it to you. I will be a loyal and loving partner for you in every way. I love to talk, a little too much, but I feel like I am communicating how excited I am to go on a walk or a car ride with you, but it might be too much for some people. I just like to talk! The only really odd thing about me is I get scared of what might be outdoors at night. I like to go out and get my business done with company and then get tucked into my kennel at night. I get my treat and kisses and then settle in and can completely relax for a good nights sleep.
I do take medicine for my anxiety, 60 mg. of doggie Prozac every night at 5pm to help me relax through the evening. I also like my canna companion, which is CBD product for dogs and seems to help me relax a bit more. Maybe if I were the only animal this might not be necessary, but it really does seem to help me relax at night.  
I am spayed and in perfect health and hoping that someone, who wants a companion to keep them company and love being by their side, will consider me for a forever dog for them. The only thing to keep in mind is that I need to be their only companion, but I promise I would make a great one. Did I tell you how smart I am? My Mom says I’m the smartest dog she has ever had and I am not destructive in any way, shape or form. I might get into the trash if there is something really yummy in there and you leave me alone, but that is it.
