Thomas
Thomas is a border collie/corgi mix.  He is about 9 years old.  He is a character but probably needs an experienced and firm home as he will push limits when permitted.
Princess
Princess is a 3-4 year old Australian Shepherd/Pyrenees 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.
Dora
From Dora's current home: We have had Dora for the last eight 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
​Ranger is a 6 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.
Luna
Luna is awesome. She's 6 yrs old, prior owners told the shelter 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.  Luna has been started in agility classes.

Update: Luna had some medical challenges with her tail which resulted in her needing to have her tail amputated.  She has adjusted well and you would never know she hadn't had her stump her entire life!
Squirrel
Squirrel is a 3 year old border collie.  He needs a little work on housetraining and socialization.  He would do best in a home that is very outdoorsy.  Squirrel needs a home with no cats.  Dogs are fine.

Ms. Peeps
Ms Peeps is a 2 year old mixed breed sweetie.  She likes attention and being told how pretty she is!  She is a bit shy with new people but steadily gaining confidence.  
Rowdy
Rowdy Roo is a 1 ½ year old St Bernard/Heeler/Lab/ Pitbull mix puppy with 14 others mixed in. He is currently 75lbs of wiggle butt. He is a sweet, sensitive puppy that loves people once he realizes he is safe. He currently lives with three puppies and two other adult male dogs. He is great with puppies! Very sweet and loves to play with them. He is very respectful of the lead dog Oliver and gets along good with Mac. It does take time to introduce Rowdy to a new dog, but then he does well. Rowdy does get nervous in new situations and can react but can also be redirected. He's a lot of bluster. His one vice that does have to monitored closely is his possessiveness of high value food items, i.e. bones with other dogs. Rowdy is house trained, kennel trained, walks well on lead, and has been through basic obedience class already. He will need a home that will continue to build up his confidence and be patient with him. This boy has so much potential for someone willing to put the time and energy into him. He loves to go on walks, hikes, car rides, loves to curl up on the couch and cuddle, and his favorite thing is to woooo at you when he's happy or excited...it's the cutest darn thing. If you’re looking for a sweetheart of a boy, that does have his quirks, but are outweighed by the incredible amount love he has to give, Rowdy's your boy!
Manchada is a spayed female 13 month old Australian Cattledog mix!  She is fun, fun, fun!  She likes to be very active!  An agility or ball-playing or hiking home would be her first choice!  She also loves to snuggle in bed!  She is good with kids and other dogs.  Manchada is an excellent kayaking buddy as well!


Manchada
Daisy (f)
Dixie (f)
Clarabelle (f)
The "cow" puppies are almost 10 month old Supermutts per their DNA test. They appear to be Catahoula mixes and that still may be the case. However, according to Embark testing, they are German Shepherd, Border Collie, Pitty, Aussie, Heeler, Bulldog (hence the under bite on a couple), Chow, even Dachshund and many others. But even with all the medium to larger dogs in the DNA they are more on the small dog statues. They are just over twenty pounds. 

Clarabelle is the epitome of dynamite comes in small packages. She is a fun, sweet, and feisty. She is potty trained and kennel trained, she knows sit, down, and we are currently working on off leash training and recall. She has been doing pretty well so far. She is social and loves people and does fairly well meeting new dogs when they are not too intense. She currently lives with her two sisters and three large males and gets along great with everyone. She likes to play with everyone, but is respectful of the boys when they are done playing. She gets called a sprite as she is the epitome of cute naughtiness that can exasperate you and make you laugh at the same time. She would be a great walking or hiking buddy or even agility as she is very athletic. She will need consistent training to keep her naughtiness in check, but is such a sweetheart of girl. 


Buk Turner
From Buk's current home: I am a busy person living in a 1 bedroom apartment!! He spends too much time in his kennel! I’ve got a 3 year old Border Collie, Blue heeler mix! Suspicion of a little kelpie in there as well! I want him to go to a loving family and/or become a working dog!! I want him to be able to run around and play, have attention and love and I know he would do great working!! He listens very well, he’s a quick learner and a hard worker when he needs to be and snuggle/laid back, hanging out companion other times!! He’s pretty quick and LOVES playing fetch! He is a big lover to people, kids and other animals! He is not a big fan of traveling, he gets nervous in the car! Hasn’t had much experience in the back of a truck but stayed well for short distances!

Poca
Cute Poca is about 30 lbs.  She is Australian Cattledog, Chihuahua, Aussie, and several other things -- but mostly cute!She is about 13 months old and enjoys hiking and kayaking!  She loves to sleep in bed with her person.

The "cow" puppies are almost 10 month old Supermutts per their DNA test. They appear to be Catahoula mixes and that still may be the case. However, according to Embark testing, they are German Shepherd, Border Collie, Pitty, Aussie, Heeler, Bulldog (hence the under bite on a couple), Chow, even Dachshund and many others.

Dixie is nothing but sass and determination. I call her my little bulldog as nothing stops this little girl. She is equal parts intensity and sweetness. She is potty trained and kennel trained, she knows sit, down, and we are currently working on off leash training and recall and she is doing well. She does get nervous in new situations and meeting new dogs, but once she realizes that she is safe she’ll warm up. She does like to play pretty rough with other dogs. She loves to play with her St. Bernard mix foster brother who is 85lbs and is not intimated by his size and actually thinks she is as big as him. She’s not super energetic, she gets her zoomies and likes to wrestle, but then loves to curl up on the couch with a chew toy. She loves to be close to her person and is very treat motivated. She will do well with some one who can train consistently and wants a little shadow.

Daisy is sweet as the day is long and sassy to boot. She can be a little reserved in new situations but warms up fairly quickly. She is potty trained and kennel trained, she knows sit, down, and we are currently working on off leash training and recall. She has been doing pretty well so far. She currently lives with her two sisters and three large male dogs. She is very good and respectful with the boys. She is very athletic and has good energy, but overwhelming. She would do great with consistent exercise or ideally agility training, She loves to cuddle with her person and very bright and eager to please.


Rosie Rose
From Rosie's current home:
I am currently fostering my adult son’s Blue Heeler. My son is very ill and unable to care for his beloved buddy, Rosie Rose. 

Rosie Rose is a wonderful 2 year old (born 9/11/21) spayed companion dog. Although she is a herding dog, she has not been a working dog. She has had limited training and while she will sit and lay on command, she will not stay. She is a very sweet and timid girl but makes her voice known to any strangers walking by her home. She gets along very well with all other dogs although she has way too much energy for my 2 six-year old dogs. She loves toys but is not interested in fetching/retrieving; she would much rather herd the other dogs while they fetch/retrieve. My son frequently walked her on the city trails and she was relatively well behaved unless she saw someone on a bike or a skateboard and then she would become very aggressive with barking and severely pull on her leash – she never bit anyone but definitely does not like bikes and such. Unfortunately, my son was not a good disciplinarian/trainer and finally gave up on leashed excursions. However, he took her up into the mountains frequently and she was his faithful companion. I really do not know how she is around children as we don’t have any little children in our homes. I do know that she was not aggressive towards them when Keegan had her at the park; I do know that she is not aggressive to anyone that comes into our fenced yard. She does not have good manners and will jump up for a rub/pet but is not aggressive or territorial. She does have the most endearing grin!

 Rosie Rose is totally house broken, crate trained, and very friendly. She is a very quiet dog and only barks if someone comes to the door; I am in and out of my apartment quite frequently (she is crated when I am gone) and the downstairs renter, who works remotely and is around all the time, assures me that she never barks when I am out and about.

Dublin
The "cow" puppies are almost 10 month old Supermutts per their DNA test. They appear to be Catahoula mixes and that still may be the case. However, according to Embark testing, they are German Shepherd, Border Collie, Pitty, Aussie, Heeler, Bulldog (hence the under bite on a couple), Chow, even Dachshund and many others. But even with all the medium to larger dogs in the DNA they are more on the small dog statues. They are just over twenty pounds. 




Dublin is a beautiful, charming 2-4 year old red and white smooth coat border collie/border collie mix. He is neutered and up to date on all core vaccinations. Dublin is incredibly bright, fast, agile and athletic! He loves with his whole heart and gives TOTAL devotion to his person/people. Unfortunately, his experience with people giving their total devotion back has not been positive. His trust in people and his confidence has taken a bit of a hit as a result of his devotion not being reciprocated.

If you like the fun, quiet, sensitive, athletic, introspective type who sits back and observes what is going on around them and offers an occasional hysterical, witty or wise comment, Dublin might be the best friend you are looking for! Dublin bonds tightly and quickly with anyone who treats him kindly and respectfully. He is shy and unsure in new situations, but as his confidence grows so does his desire to engage in those situations. Dublin may never be the life of the party — but then again he might discover his inner party dude! We are starting to see little bits and pieces of a party boy persona in him!

Dublin is an emotional dog and mirrors any emotion that is projected onto him. He is learning to deal with stressful situations in a positive way but will need a happy home where stress is an occasional thing and not a constant state of being. His sensitive side does not allow for harshness or unfairness. Dubs shines with structure, confidence and love. He is not good at being in charge of the world; it makes him anxious and fearful. If he has a strong, soft, confident, loving, benign leader who takes charge of his world, his stress and fear dissolve and his happy personality shines.  

Dublin is house trained and crate trained. He has mastered sit, down, wait, leave it, and does well on leash. He even has a few tricks in his repertoire! He is a quick learner and is a fun dog to teach. Dublin has great off-leash potential.

Dublin is playful and fun, yet respectful, with dogs he is comfortable with. His favorite dog friend is a 3 year old confident female Border collie/kelpie. They play for hours and it is quite a riot to watch!. He is less sure with unknown dogs, but is overcoming his uncertainty as his confidence grows. Dublin is fine with dog savvy cats.

In spite of his lack of structure, commitment and leadership in his life Dublin has NO separation anxiety and is quite happy to be left alone for up to five hours.

Dublin has the cutest, biggest boomer ears! You can’t help but smile when he looks at you with his bright eyes and massive ears!
