Luke is a neutered male 5 ½ year old Australian Shepherd.  He is a social and loving companion dog. He is food motivated when it comes to training and can learn quick. He has the basic obedience down (sit, stay, drop or down). His owner will be moving to senior housing this year and regretfully has to find another home for him.  Luke likes to chase any creature that moves fast (squirrels, rabbits, birds or deer if they run), so would do best in a home with no cats or little critters. He’s afraid of bikes, roller skates and skateboards and he would chase and nip if not on leash.  He has done some agility training, (weave poles and jumps), started some freestyle too. He gets along with most dogs as we go to the dog park regularly. He plays fetch with me but if other dogs chase the ball, he’ll stay back and let them have it. Luke has a sensitive stomach but does well on Prescription Science Diet Duck and Potato. He is crate trained for in the home and travels in a crate in my car just for safety reasons. Luke’s perfect home would be with someone that can give him the time, patience, energy and space he needs. Luke weighs just over 50 lbs.
Rook is a fun loving and active dog. He is 3 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 is a 4 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?
​​Zoey is a two year-old spayed smooth coat female border collie mix. This high energy pup loves to play all out, but can settle down after play time. Zoey loves to give and receive hugs as she will melt in your arms. She would be a great companion for another high energy dog playing chase, romping, and taking long hikes. Zoey knows basic commands like sit, lie down, and is leashed trained. She is house broke, crate trained and doesn’t push the fence in the back yard. She has been around our cats and other’s small dogs, and although she may be a little too inquisitive, has shown no malice towards them.  She could easily be taught skijoring. She has been around horses and likes these “big dogs”. She has a neurological issue that gives her an odd gait, but don't make the mistake of thinking it will slow her down, all she knows is that her job is to have frolicking fun. Zoey lives life to the fullest, and puts a smile on your face every day. Zoey needs a home that understands her high energy needs and if you are that home she will reward you with lots of love and devotion.
Jill is a 2 year old Australian Cattledog / Border Collie mix.   She is a very active, inquisitive girl.  She is a petite girl, maybe 30 lbs.  She is SO smart.  She loves to wrestle non-stop with her dog buddies.  She will need a busy home to keep up with her.
Ethel is a 3 year old Australian Cattledog mix.  She came to us as a feral dog and has come so far, but still needs a very special person to commit to her and keep working with her on socialization.
Quirk is a 1-2 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.
Eve is a 2-1/2 year old Blue Heeler mix, spayed, up-to-date on shots and micro chipped. Her love of people will melt your heart the first time you meet her. Her love literally has no boundaries. She LOVES squeaky toys and some tug of war. When rescued she did have a broken front leg, and will need time to build the muscle and strength back in that leg. She has a lot of energy, so as she heals I am sure she would be a great outdoor companion. Eve is being fostered with 6 other dogs, 2 cats and 2 teenagers. Eve is crate trained and is quiet as a mouse in them. She has also received basic obedience training, walks on a leash, and is house trained. She will do great with someone who can love her to pieces, but be able to let her know there are boundaries. She tends to listen to males better than females, so a female might have to show a little more authority. As typical with all my heelers, she is good with inside cats and can be distracted if she decides they need her attention, but outside cats, and rabbits are fair game. Eve loves to play with other dogs, but would need to have a meet and greet with a potential sibling to ensure their play style matches.

Arriving soon!
Rhee is a 2 year old Australian Cattledog mix.  We are told she is good with kids.  She is a lovely, bright and energetic girl. She loves to play and loves people. She hasn't met a dog she doesn't like and wants to play with all of them. We are working on her manners and learning basic commands. She sits well and is ok on a leash. She is house broken. Rhee would be a great hiking partner or ace at agility. She is a super smart girl and is easy to work with. She would be a good fit in a home that wants an active dog. She is ready to go when you are and her energy level is good when she is in the home. She crates well. Rhee is a wonderful dog.
Genny is a young female heeler cross. She is ever so sweet and loves her people. She is well behaved and low to moderate energy. Genny is house broken, walks on a leash well and knows sit.  Genny crates well and is a love to have around.
Suzie is currently about 12 months old and weighs 39 lbs. She is a medium to high energy dog with a very sweet, enthusiastic personality. She gets along well with the many dogs at her foster home and is house trained and crate trained. She is showing some inappropriate interest in cats and may need a home with no cats. Suzie is more insecure than shy and needs a person who clearly takes the lead and is good at setting limits verbally in a consistent and calm manner. Besides clear expectations from her person to boost her confidence, Suzie also has a great need for regular exercise. She loves to go on walks, loves hiking, and is an excellent running partner. Susie is trained to wear a head collar and does very well with it. Occasionally Suzie is startled and barks briefly when she hears new sounds or sees new people in the home. She however responds very well to verbal corrections and reassurance, as well as treats as a reward when she does things right. In the community, Suzie may shy away from strangers approaching her but she does not bark or nip if her boundaries are respected. She loves to snuggle up against you on the couch and is very loving. Suzie especially likes rope and rubbery toys to chew on, bones and rawhide. She is a big fan of a healthy diet and goes nuts over small pieces of apple or watermelon. If not provided with chew toys she will get creative and find her own! Suzie is a terrific teen and gorgeous looking girl, looking for a patient home to call her own.
Ricky is a large blue merle Australian Shepherd.  He is approximately 4 years old.  His owner had to go to a rest home and so this great dog is looking for a new family.
​Jerry came to me completely terrified of everything and really didn’t want to give humans a second chance to hurt him again, thankfully time is healing those wounds. He has come a long way with his confidence in the short couple of months that he has been here. He absolutely loves other dogs and does great around my two cats, now that he isn’t afraid of them. He seems to ignore horses for the most part but seems a little too interested in birds. He does take a little bit to warm up to new people because of his mistrust and is still very afraid of children. He has shown zero aggression with his fear but I feel only an older child will work for him. The one thing that his past was unable to break was his heart of gold, he is literally one of the sweetest dogs I have ever had the pleasure of loving! He has a lot of energy to burn and will require regular exercise but really settles down inside and is wonderfully behaved. He absolutely hated being kenneled but he is a very good boy when left home alone and at night. His very smart and has learned how to jump our 5 foot fence so he cannot be left unattended in a fenced yard. He doesn’t go anywhere he just doesn’t like to feel trapped. Jerry just wants love and patience. The right family must be willing to work to gain his trust, he doesn’t give it freely, but the work you put in he will return 10 fold!!
Hi, my name is Jillian! I am a 50lb 7 month old German Shepherd Mix and I have a lot of puppy energy! My foster mom said I am very sweet and I learn quickly. I like to chew things, but if you catch me chewing something I'm not supposed to and let me know I won't chew it anymore! I love chewing antlers and playing tug o war with a rope toy and going for walks. I am still learning how to walk on a leash and I am leash reactive to other dogs, but once I'm off the leash I am a little shy meeting new dogs but warm up to them quickly. I especially love playing with other puppies! I am mostly house trained if you remind me to go outside the first couple days and then after that I remember to go outside. I am a little too rough with my small 10lb foster sister dog and a little too exuberant for my foster brother cat so I would do better in a home with larger dogs or dogs and cats that don't mind my energy. I learned how to sit and shake and we are working on my lay down, stay, and crate training.  I  would love to go hiking or trail running!​
Blue is a beautiful, easy going blue heeler/black lab. He is a very loving boy who enjoys the company of other dogs, and loves people and children. He loves to go on walks, and is very gentle on the leash. He loves his crate where he sleeps at night, and will even go in his crate on his own for some quiet time during the day. There are a few things that excite Blue, and one of them is that he loves to eat, and he is currently working on waiting patiently for his food (he typically barks and jumps at the dog gate to show his excitement!). He also gets very excited when he sees a cat, so the foster is not quite sure if he is good with them, or not, due to his excitement. Blue is wonderful with kids, and has had excellent behavior around his fosters’ four year old little boy. He is a mellow boy who loves to be massaged, brushed, and loved on. He will bark if there is something to bark at, such as a motion light going on in the middle of the night. Blue’s only negatives are that he chews when he is bored, and will at times eat what he chews on. He is still young 1 to 2 years old, so hopefully he will grow out of this.  A good potential adopter for Blue will be someone/family that can spend quality time with him each day as a full member of their family. He is very social and playful with other dogs, so his foster does think that another dog in the family would be good for him. He is house trained, and does not “mark” outside. He will cry/whine in his crate if he ever needs to go potty during the night, which is rare. Blue is a sensitive boy who thrives on positive reinforcement. He sits, shakes, and often will sit straight on his hind legs hoping for a treat! He is adorable! Blue is around 2 years old, neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Blue is fostered in Central Utah.  You can view a video of him at https://www.dropbox.com/sc/4oyy8f3e5c1jnst/AAD5Z5pc73EocmsKDb54APE_a
Minni's puppies
July is a Border-Collie-Lovers Border Collie! She is a beautiful 14 month old tri-color fire ball! She loves life! She believes life is one big adventure. July is always smiling and happy to be alive. July has all the wonderful traits that Border collie lovers enjoy; intelligence, kindness, action, initiative, drive, desire to be with people, desire to learn, and a desire to please. July has a lot of herding instinct, so needs a home that understands, and is ready to help her appropriately channel that instinct. She is outgoing and fun-loving. Due to lack of socialization as a puppy, July is still learning how to meet new dogs appropriately. She is not aggressive, just over exuberant and loud. She wants to engage with new dogs, but her current behavior is somewhat off putting : ) She is getting better all the time! July is high energy, but not frenetic. After a good run she is very happy to lay down and chill for most of the afternoon. In the evening, she is ready to rock and roll again! A hike or a rousing game of fetch or tag in the evening does the trick! She is then ready to settle down. She loves attention and clearly wants to be doted on 24/7 – but is not obnoxious about demanding attention. She calmly looks you in the eye, or puts her head on your lap when she needs a little love. With her beautiful soulful eyes, she is pretty hard to resist. July has not had a lot of experience in the world, but when shown all the fun things waiting for her, she
jumps right in. She would love to be part of an active family who will include her in everything they do. She is not shy or timid. She is currently living very happily with three female Border Collies and one male BC. She loves to play with other dogs. She is intrigued by the barn cats when they are on the other side of the fence; if they are in the yard she follows them and will stare at them for hours. She does not chase them and is not aggressive, however, the cats in her foster home are very dog savvy and refuse to run from a non-threatening dog. We suspect July would love to chase a running cat : ) She initially was apprehensive about toddlers, but has come to think they are cute, especially if they can throw a ball or scratch her ears. She has come to love all children and is gentle with them. July is crate trained, house-trained, does pretty well on leash, knows basic commands and has nice manners.  If you love high energy Border Collies, can set firm, fair and consistent boundaries, and are willing to give July new positive experiences, she may be the dog for you! July will return your love a hundred fold and bring a lot of fun and joy into the lives of whoever is blessed enough to be her family! July’s foster family LOVES her. (It is a good thing they are maxed out on the number of resident dogs they can handle or July would not be up for adoption!)
Arriving soon.
Minnie the toy aussie has an adoption pending.  However, she came into rescue pregnant and delivered 5 adorable puppies.  These are MIXED breed puppies so please don't inquire after their pedigree or how big they will get.  If you would like to be considered to adopt one of these great pups, please submit an application.  

We're Minnie's puppies. Born June 12th with the exception of late arrival, Ella who was born the 13th. We love snuggling, eating, sleeping and squeaking. Our mom is taking great care of us and we're hoping to find forever families that will love us just as much as she does!
 We'll be ready to go once we're weaned and have a chance to have our mom teach us some basic manners and to socialize us.

 These two gentlemen and three little ladies would love to be part of your family! Mom is a Toy Aussie, about 10 lbs and no one knows what were mixed with but we sure are cute!
I'm Sorbet, a 4 month old chihuahua mix. I may not be a herding dog but I'm sure glad they pulled me from the scary shelter with my friend Snickers (also available through Herd)! I'm a very playful pup and love exploring everything from sticks in the yard to pieces of food hidden in a kong!  I love playing with my foster siblings, especially the ones around my own size (10lbs). I have some very big ears and am using them to learn new things like "sit" and "down."  I'm very good about being in my crate and like to sleep in there with my cozy blankets and a chew toy. I'm very energetic and love to play but am also ready to snuggle whenever you are! I'm really hoping to find my forever home and people who will help me learn what it's like to be part of a family!
​Kyon is a sweet, 9-month old cutie pie. He may be a border collie and heeler mix and is 30 pounds of  energy. Kyon ran loose in a small town in the Midwest but is learning house manners very quickly. He gets along well with the other dogs in his foster home and is respectful of them. He was a little afraid of cats at first but now enjoys his kitty friends. This boy has loads of potential, is eager to please but needs a patient person willing to work on his training. An adopter that spends time working with Kyon will be rewarded with a smart and loyal friend in no time!
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
Dean is a loveable affectionate dog with a heart of gold and a need to run. He desires open space and freedom from the confines of a suburban life. He enjoys long walks as-well-as leash free runs. He prefers to stay in sight of his person, but he won't hesitate to run down a jack rabbit or two. He is tolerant of other animals; however, he would do best as the only animal in a household, as he likes to be the center of attention. For him the best situation would be free of children as well. For him there is nothing better than a quiet space for him to love on and be held by his person. He enjoys snuggles and a good game of tug-of-war. He also loves nothing more than antlers and cheese. When provided he plays with bubbles and cold water from a sprinkler to play with. Dean is housebroken and has never damaged furniture. Dean is very protective of his home and will alert his person when someone come to thr door. He truly is a gift and a passionate companion. 
Gentry is a gorgeous Australian Cattledog.  He has a lovely disposition.  He is missing a bit of one paw, so walks with a bit of a limp and wont be doing any sports competitions. He is just getting settled and his personality is coming out more and more. Gentry likes his space. He doesn't like other dogs getting in his face, I think he is just a bit vulnerable because of his three-legged status. He likes to be close to his foster mom, like a shadow but not underfoot. If given an opportunity, he would like to be a lap dog and when you attempt to stand up or move him over, he pushes back like he's saying, 'hey do you really need to stand up? Maybe you can sit awhile longer and rub my tummy and tell me how good I am.' He's definitely a herder. He likes to bite at the ankles of the other dogs. He has engaged in some play activity and the more comfortable he gets the more he will play. However, he likes to initiate play rather than for the other dogs to. I've walked him a few times and he loves it but his stamina is not good. He's great on a leash, however. Knows some basic commands. Good at recall. Seems housebroken but its early yet.  He likes eating laying down.  He does not go after the food of other dogs. I have his water dish elevated. Twice when I was outside in the back yard, he jumped on the kitchen counter to look out the window and he's a counter surfer and window watcher. He's a good guard dog and responds to night noises or strange noises in the back yard but is easily called off. He does cry a bit when I leave.  He would be fine with other dogs but would prefer to be the only one. He likes to wrestle in the grass with me and give me kisses. I've taken him in the car and he has problems keeping his balance but likes to hang his head out the window and loves to go for rides. None of his quirks or are anything big. He would make a good companion dog for a semi-active person willing to take him for short walks, car rides and love on him a lot.   He loves, loves and loves people, but older children would be better than younger children.  
​Sasha is a shepherd mix puppy, about 6 months old. She has a very happy, outgoing and playful personality and loves people. She is a moderate to high energy dog and will weigh about 45 lbs when she is fully grown. Sasha is working hard on being house trained and leash trained and is making good progress. She is crate trained and loves soft beds and pillows. Her fur is soft as velvet and she loves to have it petted! She gets along great with other dogs as well as cats in her foster home. Chewing is one of Sasha’s hobbies so she needs to have plenty of toys available to keep her out of trouble. She is very treat motivated and easy to train. 
Henry is a 2 year old neutered male Australian Cattledog.  He has a great personality and would be very dedicated to his owner.  He is nonreactive to other dogs and quite tolerant although not super playful with them.  He will play ball some with his person.  He is smart and attentive and walks well on a leash.

Rocket is a year and a half old Border Collie.  

Goose is a 40 lb 15 month old Border Collie mix who was adopted from a shelter 6 months ago. He has done well in his new home but is looking for a even better match. He currently lives on one acre with chickens and a heeler mix companion. He is fully house trained and also spent a month boarded with a professional dog trainer to learn to come, sit and stay because his owners just welcomed their first child and wanted a jump start on his training. He has responded well to his training and his trainer mentioned he needed a job and would be an asset to rancher or a owner that would give him daily tasks. We want to give him that chance! He is very friendly but needs to be supervised or crated when around children as he will nip and herd children if he has the opportunity. He gets along well with other dogs though he can dominate play time. He is fixed and up to date on all vaccinations and receives monthly heart-worm prevention.  Goose is a great dog and he deserves the chance to be happy.
Jett is an 8 month old male mini aussie who weighs 24 lbs. He is extremely sweet and can be shy at first, but his playful self comes out quickly. Jett loves to play and has a nose that loves to sniff--- he would probably excel at nosework. Jett would do great in a house with another dog, as he seems to love having the company. He is learning his basic manners, loose leash and is working on being comfortable in a crate. Jett is great with kids, people, dogs and he very much loves to play with cats and give them as many kisses as he can get away with. ​

Jake is a 10 week old Border Collie mix.
Tessa and the presidential pups
Rayna is a young female Australian Cattledog. She is a super dooper love bug who adores people and is good with all ages. She's still a little shy but adjusts quickly to new situations and people. Rayna walks great on a leash and has good recall off leash. She is very playful and loves antlers, rawhide, and squeaker toys. One of her hobbies is to move toys around the house and collect them on the couch. She is a moderate to high energy dog and has good dog manners with other dogs big and small. Rayna travels well in the car and is very sweet, loving and cuddly. She is house trained and crate trained. A terrific, happy, well balanced dog.​
Red is a super cute and happy 50lb 3.5 yo (approx) red heeler mix who is a fantastic best friend. He is well trained - sit, stay, down, heel, come, shake, high-five, etc. He even knows "roll over", but hates it so he'll pull all stunts (and talk loudly) to avoid it! Quite the ham.  His recall is very solid and he's great off-leash. He's an excellent hiking/camping partner, not so fond of horses (but could learn), great in the house (but likes to be with his person as much as possible), and a super cuddler. He's a bit dominant with other dogs, but basically good - goes to doggie daycare regularly and has no problems. His bad habits are he does jump up, kind of like a pogo stick, and he does get on furniture in the house when no one is home. He is also really unpredictable with kids, and can be aggressive, so he will need to go somewhere without children. Red will need someone willing to keep up his training and advance it even. He's super super smart and really just wants to please you. Would be really good at agility! 
Hi, I'm Cammie. I am a pretty tri-colored Aussie/Sheltie/Border Collie (?) female mix, approximately 6 months old. My foster family is feeding me lots of good food so I am starting to fill out more (I used to be very skinny). I am very curious and like to chase cats so I would do better in a family without cats. Although shy at first, I enjoy kisses and snuggles once I get to know you. I love to romp around with other dogs and with children. As you can see, I have 1 brown eye and 1 blue eye which makes me extra special.
Tessa and her puppies came from New Mexico to Colorado late June. Nothing is known about this family as they were turned in to Animal Control as strays. Tessa is approximately one – two years old, weighs 28 pounds (needs to gain some weight), and sweet as can be. More about Tessa as her we get to know her.  The mixed breed puppies are approximately nine weeks as of July 11 and currently weigh five pounds.  They are full of energy and waiting for a family of their own. They have received their first set of vaccinations and are microchipped.
Hi, I'm Carlo. I am a handsome Aussie/Sheltie/Border Collie (?) male, approximately 6 months old. I am very interested in cats and love to chase them around so I would do better in a family without cats. I enjoy all of the typical puppy stuff. You will always find me with a toy in my mouth! Although shy of strangers, I warm up quickly and love attention. I do well with children of all ages and other dogs.
​Jaker is a 14 month old tricolor Border Collie mix. He has a beautiful, wavy coat. Jaker weighs about 45 pounds. Jaker is a very active dog who loves to play with other dogs and with toys. He needs a home that can provide plenty of exercise. He appears to be housebroken. He is a friendly, goofy guy who is ready to learn. Jaker is currently enrolled in a basic obedience class.  
Athena - Adoption Pending
​Athena is a 10 month old blue heeler and Sheltie mix. She is spayed and has all of her shots and is crate trained. She loves other dogs and plays with them very well. She has been around kids and is good with them also. She is good on a leash and knows sit and down.
