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 lovely 1 year old Australian Cattledog.  He loves to have other dogs to roughhouse with and might also learn to play fetch.  He is neutered and current on vaccinations.  The ideal home for Max would be one where he would have a job.  We can definitely see him herding cows.
​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.

This gorgeous fluffy girl is Cali. She is a 3 year old Australian Shepherd. Cali is deaf and will need an adopter who has experience with deaf dogs or who is willing to put time and effort into learning to communicate with her. Cali is a smart girl and is very people focused. She is somewhat interested interested in learning sign language but since she does not seem to have learned any sign language growing up it is not a priority to her. She LOVES to go on walks and hikes, and likes to bark when she is happy or excited about fun activities. She can’t hear her own bark, but you sure will! If you are interested in adopting her, please consider if this may be an issue for your neighbors. Cali weighs about 55lbs and is a high energy dog needing regular exercise. She is a great running partner. She adores people, has great dog manners, is friendly with dog-savvy cats and she loves to play with all species. Cali has learned to walk with a head collar and does very well with it. While she is house trained and crate trained, she does have some unfortunate habits like trying to walk over the dining table and other furniture when pursuing the shortest route from A to B. She loves toys of all kinds, including fluffy toys, tennis balls, and chew toys. She copes with her deafness with a sense of humor. When you gesture that you want her to go outside and she doesn’t want to, she will roll on her back instead for a belly rub. Sometimes she looks away when she knows what you want but doesn’t like to “hear” it. She is very cuddly and thinks she is a lap dog. A sturdy lap is therefore recommended for Cali. 
Argo is a 3-1/2 year old neutered male, tri color Australian Shepherd who is current on all shots.  He is looking for a home with a yard because his owner recently moved to an apartment and cant keep him.  He gets along with most dogs and has no problem with cats. He has not been around children so we cannot speak to his interaction with them.  He can be very protective and will growl and bark whenever he feels his home or master is threatened.  However, he has never bitten anyone. He loves to play fetch and go running. He behaves well for the groomer and kennel attendants.
Burke is 1.5 yr old, 50 lbs aussie/heeler mix. He is great with other dogs and is very playful. Burke loves kids! He can be reserved with some men but warms up quickly. He is active and enjoys hiking or related adventures. After a decent outing, he'll settle for a long nap and makes a great foot warmer. He knows basic commands and his foster family will continue expanding his skills. He will chase cats but doesn't pay any attention to sheep or other farm animals. Burke is full of personality and will make an excellent companion. He's house trained, current vaccinations and neutered.
Victoria is approximately 2 years old.  She is a mixed breed with maybe some border collie, maybe some lab?  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!​
​Tina is a 1 year old Australian Cattledog/Kelpie.  She is a spunky girl who would do best in a home that is active and keeps her mind busy.  She loves to wrestle with other dogs.  Toys are a must.  She does settle well once she is done playing.  She is a compact girl, about 30 lbs.  Because she can be a bit mouthy when playing, a home with small children is not recommended.  Tina is curious about cats, but would probably be okay in a home with a very stand-up cat and some supervision through the adjustment phase.  
Ripley is a 2 year old Australian Cattledog.  He is a fun, happy dog that loves playing with other dogs.  He is super friendly with people as well.  He likes to play with toys and is doing well on housetraining.  He is quiet and might be a candidate for an active apartment home.  ​

​Tasha is an adorable terrier puppy.  At Four months she is still around 10 lbs, so she wont get very big.  She has a spunky fun personality... and doesnt even get mad when her foster mom dresses her up :)
Lola is around 14 months old and does well with kids, males, females, dogs and cats. She knows her commands of ‘sit’ ‘lay’ ‘shake’ ‘stay’.  Her current owner lives in an apartment that is small and works a full time job.  She has a tendency of destructiveness due to separation anxiety and she can jumps fences. All in all, she is a kind hearted dog that needs a home that will fit her lifestyle. She loves to run and has work ability.  She is active, extremely sweet, and has great manners. However, the lifestyle of her current owner does not match the lifestyle she needs. 
From Scooter's current owner:
Scooter, our australian cattle dog, is about a year old.  He is kennel and potty trained. When he is excited he does pee a little bit. We are looking for a good home for him.  He loves attention and to play fetch. Very energetic dog.  He does nip and gets up in peoples face all the time. He has a lot of energy and needs a big yard. Will probably do better with older children as he does knock kids down. He has started growling at our two year old and snaps meanly when close. Slow to warm up to people but craves attention. We have two small dogs he does well with. Not sure with bigger dogs.  Will do well in an environment where he has space and can get out energy. Enjoys going on walks.
​Cookie is a 1 year old Chihuahua.  She is just as sweet as she looks!  She weighs about 8 lbs, but doesnt know she is a little dog.  She likes to play with the big dogs (and is faster than most of them!). She loves to give kisses to people, even if she has just met them.  Cookie is great with kids, but needs a family that understands she is not a toy to be dragged around.  Cookie loves to sleep in bed with her people.  With a little training, Cookie could even become an agility dog or a therapy dog.  
​Scout is a loyal and affectionate spayed female Australian Cattledog/Border Collie mix who wants nothing more than to please the humans she loves. Around 8 years old, she is in the prime of her life and still a ball of energy and enthusiasm but with more bouts of mellowness as she’s a little older. There's no toy or ball she can't fetch, again and again, and again. She'll stare at you with a loving eye--she was born without vision in her right eye--expectantly awaiting the 40th throw with as much excitement as the first one. Exceptionally trainable and responsive, she listens to commands to sit or go to her kennel even if she's attentively waiting for you to let her start her dinner or if a friend she hasn't seen in a while is at the front door. She often elects to go to her kennel for a midday nap, since it's her safe haven. Although if her people are on the couch or in bed, you can be sure that she'll want to join in, or at least climb up and see what all the fuss is about! And although she may not enjoy baths or getting her paws wiped clean after playing in the mud, she'll patiently wait until you're finished.

Everyone is a friend to Scout, she's never met a person that she hasn't taken to immediately. Scout loves all humans but cannot live in a house with other pets, especially dogs. We have been working with a trainer at the Humane Society of Boulder Valley for her dog-reactivity issues, and will happily connect any potential owners with this trainer. She gets very excitable around kids, so would maybe better fit into a home with older children. We've been fostering Scout since her previous owners left the country, and with a big move to a big city on the horizon, we'd love to find her a loving human companion or family that can offer Scout the security and happiness of a life in a home free of other pets and full of humans she can give her love.

Do you like cute puppies?  Well, here they are!  These 8 week old puppies are probably a border collie mix (dont ask for a pedigree or exact mix as only their mama knows).  They are sweet pups and will need active, loving homes.

Junior is an active pup who loves to explore!

Blue is our shy one, but he also loves play time. He runs around and plays with our female dog for hours. He definitely has a voice and he is not afraid to use it, but tends to shy away when people approach him to quickly. 

Banshee, his name explains his energy. This one is the largest of the three and wants to play and wrestle anytime he can. His ears are always perked up and he listens very well. He is starting to respond the his name and will follow you around when asked.

Ellie​ is sweet and smart.

Penny is a lovebug.
