Sassy is a 3 year old Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix.  Sassy is current on vaccinations and spayed. Sassy is a smaller girl, maybe 40 lbs.  She is active and would do best with a job to keep her busy.  She is not a good fit for children or cats.  Sassy would probably be best as an only dog or with a male dog for company.  She is very loving to her person.  She can be good with other people but needs to be introduced properly or she can be inclined to sneakily nip at strangers.  She would be good running partner.  Sassy has been waiting a while for just the right home, are you it?
Yukon is a 4 year old Australian Shepherd/Australian Cattledog mix.  So far Yukon has turned out to be a big loving Teddy bear. I can't find much to complain about him. He chases the cats but is not aggressive.  The old story, they run he chases. He is already getting along with my female Cocker Spaniel (she puts him into place if he gets too "close" and my male Chihuahua. He doesn't want to be the Alpha male. He is clearly afraid of my husband but already it is better than yesterday. He barks if someone approaches the house. He loves to be combed and it will be a daily routine.  He flinches when I throw a ball or if he is touched too sudden!. He will regain trust in short time I believe. He has not attempted to jump fences. He is definitely smart and walks on a leash. Even if he pulls hard at the beginning of a walk, he settles in. He says hi (paw)! He just needs a lot of loving touch and he will be such a winner!! He really is a very beautiful dog!!

Cookie is a 8 year old Border Collie/Labrador Retriever mix.  She is good with kids and cats and fine with dogs that respect her space.  She loves water, toys, and cuddling!  She is an active girl who enjoys hiking and playing in the hose.  She is wild about her ball and loves to play fetch.  Cookie is spayed and current on vaccinations.
Sebastien is a 4 year old Australian Shepherd mix with a tail.  He is housetrained and likes to play with balls and other toys.  Sebastien is a good hiking buddy and while not over the top around the house, can keep up with you for a nice long hike.  He would like to chase horses and cats so would do best without that option.  Sebastien is neutered and current on vaccinations.  Sebastien loves his people but can be pretty protective around strangers so needs a home that is willing to continue to work with him to manage those behaviors.
Rook is a fun loving and active dog. He is 2 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.
Bailey the Black Lab
Bailey turned 2 in January. She is good with cats. She is a lab mix. She is protective when it comes to new people, but is very friendly after she sees that the new person was accepted by us. My daughter plays with bailey and bailey plays back, bailey loves to play with children, but should go to a home without small children as she likes to nip at heels when there is a high level of activity. Another downfall for bailey would be how she barks/bites at tires. Bailey loves the water, car rides, walks, playing ball and any family activity. Bailey is spayed, house trained 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?
Rose is a 1 year old spayed female Border Collie mix.  She is fairly small, about 40 lbs.  She is very loving and affectionate to her person.  She is housetrained.  Rose will do best with an experienced handler as she is somewhat reactive to strangers and tends to bark at them.  She is also possessive of her person around other dogs.  But she is a fun companion and snuggle buddy.
Razzle is a gorgeous, sweet 7 year old Border Collie.  He is a loving dog that is generally good with other dogs and does okay with cats.  He is good with older children.  Razzle has separation anxiety and would do best in a home where people are home a lot or where he can go with them.  Razzle is neutered and current on vaccinations.
Prancer is about a year and a half years old, stands 21" at the shoulders and weighs 38 lbs. My daughter calls him Prancer because of the way he throws his front feet in the air when he walks, like he's prancing. He's very sweet, loves people, kids and dogs. He loves loves to play and wrestle with other dogs. He's okay with cats. Prancer walks great on a leash and is potty trained. He's really a great cuddler. 

​​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 9 month 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.
3 year old, male pure bred Australian Shepard to someone with a home that has more time for him. He is neutered and up to date on shots, except rabies (has, previously had it, will need booster). Knows sit, stay, down, heel, but is willing to learn more. Has a desire to "work" on a farm or ranch. Great with adults and older children, doesn't realize his own size when around younger children. Loves to play with other dogs, will probably chase cats. Would benefit from having space to run. Doesn't chew on dig.

Bear is a male, 1 year old, 42 lb., neutered Australian Cattle Dog. He is a typical young Heeler, fairly high energy. Bear is learning sit, stay, down, come and drop. He is pretty much a blank slate. Can be fearful at times although that is lessening. He loves and requires exercise. He is not great on a leash yet but is excellent on a bike. We are still working on getting him house broke. But I see a lot of potential in this boy. 
Jailee is a super cute little female mcnab border collie mix.  Personality plus!
Lacie is a 2 year old Border Collie mix. She is house trained. She is good with other dogs and likes to play with other playful dogs. She is medium energy level and very intelligent. She is picking up on basic obedience commands very quickly. We are training her using clicker training techniques. She really likes toys and cannot get enough of playing tug. She is shy with new people and needs some time to warm up to them before they pet her. She is affectionate once she is comfortable with people. ​ She is pretty good in a crate but occasionally barks when we first ask her to go in. However, she calms down quickly. She has also been good loose in the house and has not displayed any inappropriate chewing etc. Lacie was hit by a car before she came to rescue. She had a laceration repaired on a rear paw and there is some scarring as a result. Since coming to rescue, we found that she also had a broken toe in that paw that was not appropriately treated. We are treating it now and trying to help it heal as best possible. She has some arthritis developed in that paw already. She does seem to do quite well despite the injury and it does not seem to bother her most of the time. She will need some maintenance and care to make sure she does not overdo it. However, we are hopeful that after some treatment she should be able to participate in most normal activities. ​

  Hi, I’m Hannah, a very loving, young shepherd-mix girl with the most gorgeous eyes and beautiful, rich coat coloring! I love to amuse myself with toys or by playing fetch or tug with my human. You can also find me chasing birds out of the backyard — so much fun! My foster family has three dogs that I love to play with, too. I am very comfortable with my foster mom and dad, but tend to initially fear strangers, especially tall males, so my foster mom has me go to my crate and gives me a treat, which helps me immediately relax. I walk well on a leash, but dog parks are too much for me right now. My confidence keeps improving as time goes by in this consistent, supportive environment. I am very proud to say that I do know some commands, such as Sit and Come, and I know how to shake hands! I am looking for a Forever Home that will provide the oving and confidence-building support which my foster home has and a Forever Family to whom to give my loyalty and love! Are you that family?

Rio has some issues with strange dogs and needs an experienced home.  This pretty boy is about 5-6 yrs old and ready for someone to be his best buddy.
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.
Gracie was born on May 18th, 2014 to a Border Collie mix. Gracie is a loving, smart and goofy pup who has a few quirks that will need continued training in her forever home. Gracie likes to play and romp with her furry friends (mostly dogs but she does try to play with her feline roommates too) and would do best with a confident dog in the home. She likes playing with toys and a good game of chase or fetch. She is a vocal dog and grumbles and barks while playing with her dog friends but is also vocal in general. Gracie does bark very loudly with excitement when someone comes home and will continue on until she is let out of her crate. This high pitched bark makes apartment living unsuitable for Gracie. She is also pretty vocal when she is separated from her humans by a gate (or baby gate in the house) and wants her humans to know she wants to be with them. Gracie is an easy keeper and has a good "off button" in the house and is usually quiet during down-time inside. She is a moderate energy dog and can keep up on hikes and romping with furry friends but does not need to run a marathon every day. Gracie likes to learn, so teaching her tricks would be a plus and provide mental stimulation. Gracie is a little nervous around men and will need a slow introduction and more training to help her gain confidence around men. She will softly growl or sometimes bark at men when she is nervous. She seems to do well around the children we've encountered but hasn't had one on one with kids. Gracie is very loving and snuggly with her humans and almost melts into her people when she is demanding love. This super sweet girl will need a little extra time and training. Because Gracie has developed some separation anxiety and reactivity she will need a home with a fence, where the people do not work outside of the home, and would do best with a female owner.

I wanted to introduce you to Ranger, our 1 1/2 year old border collie mix. We rescued Ranger when he was 8 weeks old. . At that time we lived in a house with a backyard. Due to unforeseen financial difficulties we had to move into a townhome with no yard. We thought it would be temporary but our financial situation has not changed. Ranger is quite an active dog that needs room to run. He is very protective and constantly barks at anyone that might walk by. At the dog park though, he does not bark and gets along well with other dogs.   My son is unable to play with his friends because of Ranger's behavior so we have been forced to lock Ranger up. He probably should not be in a home with young kids.   Ranger has all his immunizations and has been neutered.
Bristol is a 2-3 year old female Border Collie/Shepherd type mix. She weighs about 50 lbs (or should be when she gains a little more weight). Bristol is high energy dog. Her favorite activity is running around the backyard looking for flying insects! She settles down nicely in the house. She has completed a basic obedience class and is very food motivated. She likes to please her people. She is crate trained and housebroken. She loves being with her person while doing chores (inside and outside). She would be a good match for someone interested in training a dog for agility, flyball, and might make a great jogging partner.  
Eva is a 1 year old Australian Cattledog.  She is a stocky 37 lb girl.  She is a fun hiking buddy.  Eva loves the view from above, she would always prefer to be on the crate than in it :)  Eva may have some herding potential.  She would do best in a home without cats.
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.
Luke - Adoption Pending

Tyler and Cole
Tyler and Cole are brothers, but will be placed separately.  They are approximately 16 weeks old.  They are mixed breed cuties (possibly any combination of border collie, lab, or springer spaniel).  Total sweethearts.
Logan is roughly 8 months old. He weighs 53 lbs, so he's a little big for a Border Collie mix. He's really sweet, seems fine with cats, ducks, and horses so far. What a cutie though! He's a bright and happy guy.
Disney Puppies
Currently 3 pups remain - 1 female, 2 males   Possible border collie/sheltie mix, but all that is known for sure is they are a mix.  Born mid-March 2015 and after being surrendered at four weeks of age to a high kill shelter, the Disney puppies are now ready for new families of their very own. These social pups enjoy playing with one another and the larger resident dogs. They are mostly house trained but are puppies so accidents will happen. They love exploring the yard with all the smells and sounds. They love all kinds of toys and are exploring the kiddie pool. They are used to sleeping in crates at bedtime and sleep through the night without a whimper.  Puppies, while adorable, are not for everyone. Think carefully if your lifestyle has room for the extraordinary responsibility of raising a puppy. Do you truly have time for the daily nurturing and constant supervision required? Do you mind piddles on your floor, chewing on your things and, before you know it, a “teenage puppy” with ideas of his own? The proper handling and socialization of a puppy are critical to their development into a well-adjusted adult. As the puppy grows he/she will require your steady, kind leadership, commitment to his training and rely on you for his extensive daily exercise needs.
Theoden King, “Theo”, is a big, beautiful Border Collie cross, probably with Aussie. He is 7 years old and 80 lbs. He is a loving, big, playful soul. He acts very young and loves wrestling with his foster brother Curly. He also enjoys being brushed. He does tend to run off if off-leash, so he will need to be kept on leash! He doesn't chase my chickens. He likes to hunt mice. Theo is a special guy who would make a great addition to most families. I think he'd prefer a home with another large dog so he can have a wrestling buddy. Theo has been one of the easiest foster dogs I've ever had.
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.
Dennis is a 5 or 6 year old neutered Australian Shepherd.  His owner went into a nursing home.  Dennis is such a total love. He's fine with dogs, cats, people, children. He is curious about cats, but it's more like he hasn't been around them much and wants to be their friends.  He absolutely loves, loves going on his walks and I can't wait till he's lost a little more weight so we can take him on some leisurely mountain bike rides. We found out he really likes getting in water and splashing around.  He's like a hoover vacuum when it comes to food, and I don't think he realizes that on a hand it's not polite.  He's just a sweet, cuddly teddy bear. 
Cricket is a blue merle female Australian Shepherd.  About 30 pounds of darling dog, Cricket is a kid, dog and people friendly. She is quickly learning about living in a house, learning about leash walking and learning some of the basic commands. She is very agile and fast. Cricket likes to snuggle and be right with her person. She is also learning manners, like not jumping up and (so hard) waiting for people to go through doors first. She is about 3.5 years old.
 JD is a 5 year old neutered male aussie who comes to us after the death of his human who was pretty much his reason for living.  JD loves running, toys and riding in cars as well as swimming and taking care of his person. He enjoys baths but is not a fan of hair cuts. JD is leash trained and reliable off leash. He knows sit, stay, come, and couch (that means get on the couch and sit down). He has not been crated at home but behaves well in kennel at vet and groomers. He is housetrained and is not an escape artist. He had a child who has lived with him since birth to  5 years. He is very good with him, loves to give kisses and play with the child. He is good with other dogs, like to play. Never lived with cats but does well with cats in neighborhood. He has not had any livestock experience.
Lucky is a very sweet, shy dog. She is 1 1/2 yrs old, weighs about 30 lbs and is an Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix. She is house trained, but has significant anxiety issues. She won't go outside without assistance. We kennel her at night to give her a sense of security and bring water to her during the day to make sure she is drinking enough. She is also a little picky about her food, but getting better.   Lucky is a great couch mate, she will gladly sit with you all day. So we also walk her daily to make sure she gets exercise. She will run away if not on a leash. For somebody who doesn't mind helping Lucky work through her anxiety issues, Lucky is a wonderful, loving, quiet dog. She gets along very well with other dogs and with people. 
Lovey is a one and 1/2 year, Aussie or Border Collie. She has only been here a short time and is still adjusting to a new place. She is very quiet and shy, but gets along with other dogs. 
Blade is a 6 month old Australian Cattledog/Australian shepherd mix.  He is a mellow and very sweet boy.  He will make a nice, laid back family companion.  He is becoming more and more playful. He gets along with my dog, although a little possessive with his toys/food around her, but it's only with the dog, he has no problem if I put my hand in his bowl or grab his toy from him. Really good temperament, does really well with the kids but can occasionally get excited & knock them down, we're working on that. No issues with the cats either, he doesn't chase or bother them, one cat likes to rub on him & he is fine with it, he stays away from the not so dog friendly cat. He did well yesterday when we had guests over,greeted everyone & was happy getting attention, didn't mind the fireworks. We have not had any accidents in the house. He is not kennel/crate trained, he will whine,bark,howl in there. I do crate him when I leave the house but at night he just sleeps on the floor in our room so he doesn't keep everyone up. Like all puppies he needs a little work on manners but otherwise he's a great little guy!

 Siri is a year and a half old Australian Shepherd mix.  She is very sweet and kind.  We feel she would do well with children and is good with other dogs.
Cooper is a 3-year-old red heeler mix. He was rescued from life on the streets in Arizona and is looking for a new family to give him lots of love.  Cooper is an extremely loyal and sweet dog that loves to hike, play fetch, and go for walks.  He has gone through training so he knows basic commands (especially if there is a treat involved). He responds very well to positive reinforcement and loves to snuggle….he would be happy cuddling all day long and sometimes has a snoring problem. :) He is neutered, vaccinated, doesn't chew, and is fully housebroken. He likes to sunbathe and work on his tan when the weather is nice. People stop me on the street to comment on how beautiful he is.   Cooper is currently with a family that is unable to keep him because he does not enjoy life being chased around by a toddler, he would do best in an adult-only household or a home with older children. He should be in a home with a female dog only or in a one-dog household. 
Logan - Adoption Pending
Teddy is a doll. He is such a happy guy who loves attention. He was taken to the pound in New Mexico after his owner died and was within hours of being euthanized when rescued. Teddy is a short guy with lots of droopy skin, is an American Cattle Dog mix, but not sure what he is mixed with (he is adorable though!). Teddy is also working on leash skills and needs an adoptive home that will help him with experiencing new situations. Teddy’s bio will be updated as he makes progress.
 Blue was taken to the pound in New Mexico after his owner died and was within hours of being euthanized when rescued. Blue was especially terrified when he first came to my home, is really friendly now, but is very shy when it comes to being leashed and introduced to new experiences. This is something that will be worked on daily, and hopefully Blue will learn that being on a leash is not scary. Blue is very happy guy who gets along with all the other dogs at my home. He is an American Cattle Dog mixed with Black Lab. Blue will need a home that is patient to his needs and will teach him that going for walks will be fun, and the world is not such a scary place. Blue’s bio will be updated as he progresses.

Eve is an active 2 year old Australian Cattledog.
​Radar is a 26 lb. 1 year old neutered male border collie/heeler mix.  He is a bit on the fearful side and would do best in a home that is a little quieter and willing to work to build his confidence.  He is very sweet and smart.  He loves other dogs and has shared a home with a cat.  He would do best without small children in the home.
