Thomas is a border collie/corgi mix.  He is about 7 years old.  He is a character but probably needs an experienced and firm home as he will push limits when permitted.
Wrigley is a neutered 11 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.

Opie is a very smart, higher energy Border/Aussie mix. He knows verbal and hand commands for come, sit, stay, heel, roll over, back up, bring me your ball “no, the other ball”, he learns commands often after just a couple instructions, and loves to fetch balls and frisbees. He will be your hiking buddy as he loves the trails and is particularly good off leash but will heel when told to. While very anxious to go on walks, he will chill out with you in the evening. He is neutered and up to date on vaccinations. Being a smart active dog, he does best with plenty of exercise and stimulation such as daily walks, instructions, ball chasing, and going for rides.  
Opie endured some rough times before he came into Herd and has made great progress, however, he still has some food aggression, and over- excitement issues to work out with his forever home. But on his walks, he enjoys meeting other people and friendly dogs. At this time, it is recommended that Opie not be in a home with young children. He has gotten used to our cats but is still a little wary of them when they get close. We think he would be best with an active family where he has a job to do and be in the company of his people. He has been diagnosed with Pannus requiring daily drops in his eyes which he takes very well.

Oreo is a 5 year old neutered male border collie.  Oreo came in with some touch sensitivity, which has greatly improved.  He is now a very cuddly boy, but because of this history, we are recommending no homes with children under 13.  Oreo likes to fetch and would probably also be a good running buddy.  He would do best in a home without cats.
Princess is a 1.5 year old Australian Shepherd mix.  She has a gorgeous fluffy tail!  Princess needs a home with no cats.  She 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.
From Dora's current home: We have had Dora for the last five 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. 
Jasper is a 10 month old Border Collie/Australian Shepherd mix.  Jasper is a high energy dog with a lot of sport potential.  He is athletic and has some natural herding instincts.  He has been started on nosework and agility and is very enthusiastic about both!  We would prefer a home that will put this potential to use.
​Reed is a 5 year old border collie/Australian shepherd mix.  He will need an experienced home with no children.  He loves positive attention and playing with toys.  He is a bit triggered by corrections so needs a loving and patient home that continue to help him overcome his fears.
Sadie Rose is a female Australian Kelpie/Border Collie mix.
Luna is awesome. She's a 3 yr old, prior owners who got ahold of the shelter told them she's a heeler/husky/aussie/pit mix. She is high/mid 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 NOT do well with other dogs currently and is reactive when she sees them sometimes. Crates up super easily and loves to ride in the car. I think she's about 45 pounds. 
Penny Piper
Hi, my name is Piper ‘cause I can walk on two legs like “the Pied Piper”. I am a beautiful border collie mix that some have likened to a McNab. I also seem to share their temperament as I require daily exercise and like to run. I will bond tightly with my owner and prefer her over others. I am very alert and sound sensitive; please don’t make me endure gun shots or fireworks as I just want to hide. Also, if I am startled in the house by others I may bark and growl (only to protect my mom), but don’t worry I am all bark and growl but no bite😏.
I am well trained and know all the basic commands as well as agility obstacles. My mom and I did that for a while and I loved the practice but when we went to “show our stuff”, I just froze 😞. Which brings me to another important point about me...I do not care for big indoor venues. I will tolerate a visit to the big box store but don’t expect my best if you want me to perform. I just can’t do it. I so wish someone had exposed me to these experiences when I was a pup as I think that would have made a difference.
So now I find that I live in a place with the daily gun shots from hunting half the year and frequent startles in the house by others. Mom, dad and I agree that I would be happier if I joined a household in the city as a companion and protector for a single woman. One great thing is that I get along well with other dogs and cats (sometimes I do exercise the cat a little 😏). If I sound like a good fit please give me a chance...I will not disappoint
