Quirk is a 4 year old mixed breed (according to his DNA test, more than 6 breeds!)  He has an endearing expression and a sweet personality.  He is pretty shy with people, especially men, but clearly wants to be involved with them.  His ideal home would be a quiet and patient single person who would let him snuggle on the bed and go hiking, but would not expect him to be a social butterfly with strangers.  He is 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 5-6 years old.  He is a character but probably needs an experienced and firm home as he will push limits when permitted.
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 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.

Opie is a young Border Collie around three years old. He is very smart, learning commands often after just a couple instructions. He knows all the basic commands; come, sit, stay, heel, roll over, back up, bring me your ball “no, the other ball”…  He is active and enjoys walks, rides, and just being with his people. He can be high energy, but chills out with you in the evening. He is neutered and up to date on vaccinations. Being a smart active Border Collie, he does best with plenty of exercise and stimulation such as daily walks, following along off leash when you go hiking, horseback riding, or on your bicycle. He really enjoys games of fetch with a ball or Frisbee. He just wants to be with you as you work around the yard and as your travel companion. He loves to go for rides.  
Opie endured some rough times before he came into Herd and has made great progress, however, he still has some food aggression issues to work out with his forever home. But on his walks, he enjoys meeting other people and friendly dogs. He’s very tolerant of the foster puppies we have, letting them haul his ball away and sometimes playing chase with one. At this time, it is recommended that Opie not be in a home with small 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 rural family where he has a job to do and be in the company of his people.  

​Verkin is a 4-5 year old Australian Shepherd.  He is a big guy, about 55 lbs.  He would do best in an experienced home that will get him lots of exercise.  A home without small children is a must for Verkin.  
Petunia is a 1 year old border collie mix.  She is active and playful.  She really likes people but can have a little submissive urination when she is excited.  She will be a great companion.
Oreo is a 2 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.
Lucy is an 8 month old Catahoula Leopard Dog.  They are sweet as can be.  Lucy loves to crawl in someone's lap.  She will be great as a family dog.  She is currently about 40 lbs.
Ghost B was born 11/15/14.  He is 70 pounds, neutered and up to date on vaccines. Ghost is a Catahoula x Border Collie He is a wonderful cow dog. He worked for a year with my husband on the Padlock Ranch in Sheridan. He loves to trail the back of a herd and make sure nobody runs back on you. He also has no hesitation about going to the front of a cow or bull and nipping them on the nose to get them turned around. Ghost has never shown any signs of aggression. He is a sweet dog that will work hard for you but at the end of the day would enjoy nothing more than to be pet and loved on. Good with other dogs. Not good with kids. Not good with cats. Good around horses. LOVES to be sprayed with the hose. Ghost will chase the stream of water for hours. He will swim in any body of water. 
Ghost B
Foxy is a sweet German Shepherd/Collie mix.  She is great with cats, likes to play with playful dogs, and is good with people.  She weighs about 55 lbs. and is 6 years old.  She likes to hike on leash or romp in the yard.  

​Viola is approximately 2 years old.  She is a sweet, but very shy dog.  She does well with nice or playful dogs.  She is okay with cats, but might be frightened by rambunctious children.  

Hi, I'm Carly! Now that I'm done with raising 8 puppies, I am ready for a home of my own too! I am very sweet and super smart, about 60lbs, and 1.5 years old. I am friendly with people and dogs and I am interested in cats, but once I get a good sniff I treat it like a dog. I am a very playful pup and love to play and romp. I do prefer a home with adults only.  Because I'm so smart, I get bored easily and will start to chew out of boredom. I also go to my crate when asked and will generally calm down there, especially for bedtime! I am an active dog too and would love for someone to take me for hikes, long walks, or potentially running (my foster parent's haven't had a chance to take me running yet). 
Maybelline is a very sweet and timid girl who gets along great with my other dogs and even my overly bold cat, who she sometimes plays with (it's really cute). She has taken to clicker training enthusiastically and is quite smart. She is kind of a velcro dog - she just wants to be with her person (maybe people - I am the only person in my house, so...). If you're looking for a snuggler, she will be happy to oblige. She is mostly food motivated, but she does enjoy the toys and chewies in the house. She did well at the vet - didn't freak out when the vet examined her and was perfectly amiable with her, though obviously not thrilled to be in that environment. And her velcro nature has been useful for leashwork. 
Maybelline's challenges are a pretty lengthy list, but there's nothing too terrible on it. This dog does not have a mean or bitey bone in her body. She is scared of loud noises, including thunder, and she has some separation anxiety that seems to be mostly associated with being left in a crate. She does eventually settle down in the crate if there's another dog in the room with her. She is a very mild resource guarder (if the resource is me), and she is pretty needy. We have not yet started working on playing with the ball, so we'll see what happens in that regard. She also can chew her way through a harness or a computer card with just a few bites, but she's some kind of kelpie mix and my current kelpie did this when he was her age - he grew out of it. 
If you're looking for a companion dog you could not go wrong with her - she's a total lovebug and is very responsive to training. If you have another dog or other pets, she would be an ideal choice; in fact, it seems best for her to go to a home with other dogs (cats are a bonus) as she loves to play with my pack. She is probably about a year old, and I think Maybelline will have a lot more to offer as she comes out of her shell more. ​
​Darling is young female Australian Cattledog.  At 25-30 lbs she is on the smaller side.  Very sweet.  Good with other dogs.

Cooper is a 6 year old tricolor Australian Shepherd. He is on the bigger side, around 60 lbs.  Cooper is a typical aussie.
​Samoa is a 6 year old female Border Collie mix. She loves her people and loves to have someone to play with. She does well on the leash with a few reminders to "leave it". She does have aggression towards other animals, she needs to be the only one in the home. Samoa also loves children and is very tolerant of them. She is a very sweet dog who needs to find her forever home.

Mace is a sweet pup, approaching 7 months old (DNA suggests very mixed with border collie, australian cattledog, and Swiss shepherd in the mix).  He is looking for a loving, active home. 

Mace here, Mom says it is time to update you on how amazing I am. Sorry for the delay but since I am still just a puppy took me a minute to think about exactly what amazing means. So I will just go with everything my foster Mom says "good boy" to me about. I am a happy, happy boy in fact I am happy 24-7 even when I am sleeping I am happy. I love all people, I can be a tad shy but if my foster Mom likes the human then I like them too. I also love all dogs big and small....sometimes the other dogs are not as happy as me, sometimes they are down right grouchy but I can take hint and I just leave them alone. I am also potty trained, has been months since I had an accident in the house....but FYI the accident it wasn't my fault I barked and told my foster mom to let me out....a puppy can only hold it so long and yes I left a puddle in the mud room. I am also okay when my foster mom goes to work...no separation anxiety from me, I know she will be coming back...so no barking or destructive behavior from me. When she comes home I am there smiling to welcome her home. Now I believe that I am the total package, but apparently high jumping onto the kitchen counter is a big NO! So I am learning to control my high jumping - also I do love kids big and small, but I keep hearing the phrase a bull in a china shop.....I think they are talking about me even though I am a dog not a bull...so maybe older kids would be best, I certainly don't want to knock over any babies/toddlers. My best quality of all is my 100% recall....when Mom calls I come running because good things happen when I listen...might get a belly rub, a head scratch or hit the jackpot and get a yummy treat. So please tell the world about me "Marvelous Mace" all my siblings have been adopted and my Mom has also moved on to her forever human...it is now time for me to experience the joy of a forever person.
​This is Star and she is a star. She has an incredible amount of energy and seems to be on the go most of the day. Unless she is resting, then she likes to be close to her human. She will need an owner that has time to spend with her and can give her the attention she needs and deserves. She's barely a year old and has not had a lot of (if any) training. We are working on some basic commands and housebreaking. This is made difficult, however, because it appears she has bad experiences in life. She's frightened of commands. She is frightened of strangers and particularly men. She tries to make herself as small as possible when there is a man in the house and is refusing to come inside from outside if she thinks there is a man in the house. She is working on this but it will take a lot patience and consistency to help her overcome early bad experiences. She's worth it. She loves, loves other dogs and loves to play with them. She loves to run and would be a great running companion. She's not trustworthy off leash, yet. She's worth the time and effort for the right home. Beautiful to a fault. Character to Nth degree. She's a lovely lady and worthy of her name. She's a diamond in the rough.  

​Grindelwald is a sweet and mellow 2 year old Australian Shepherd.

Hello! My name is Gus. I’m about 4 years old 50 lbs and I am a Border Collie! My favorite things are being outside, playing with a ball, and laying around on something soft! I do great with other dogs, but I haven’t met any cats yet. My exercise has been restricted due to a heart worm diagnosis but I seem to show interest in going outside on a walk. I am house trained and know when I need to go outside and don’t have accidents. I do well on a leash and in the car. Gus was not my given name, but I’m slowly figuring out how to answer to it. I am a good boy who can be trusted out of the kennel without making a mess in the house. I love most of all meeting and greeting new people with a big smile and a tail wag!  
Danny Boy
Danny Boy is a confident, socialized, fun-loving two-year-old Border Collie. This dog will melt your heart. He loves people and other dogs. He is 64 lbs., microchipped, neutered, and up to date on vaccinations. Danny is very athletic and would benefit from having a job like ranching, herding, or participating in sports like agility, flyball, lure coursing, etc. Also, Danny could be a great running and hiking buddy once bonded to his new owner. He bonds fast to his human. This big boy will require a secure area to exercise as he is prey driven and loves to chase bunnies. Danny is working on potty training and does great on a routine. If left alone, Danny is a typical two-year-old that gets bored and will get into mischief. Therefore, crating is recommended when left unsupervised until he matures. Although, he loves crating up for food, treats, and bedtime, he will require prior exercise for longer crate periods. Food puzzles and frozen bones help his alone crate time experience. Yep, Danny is social and prefers to be in company of other dogs and people then be alone. He hasn’t been fully tested with cats and/or small children. Therefore, because of his young age and size, Danny should be supervised in presence of small children. He doesn’t realize his size and wants to jump, hug and sit on people’s lap. He thoroughly enjoys chew toys, bones and a good game of fetch. Danny has tendency to crave attention for himself and may jump over other dogs to rush to your side. In spite of his bunny obsession, he does extremely well on a leash, and is working on redirects during walks. He is not an overly hyper or anxious dog and can chill with the best of us. Danny Boy will make his new owner very happy. He is pure love!
Chief is a large Border Collie mix, weighing in at 62 pounds. We believe he is 5 or 6 years old. Chief was found as a stray in southern New Mexico, but his demeanor suggests that he was once a beloved pet. Chief is a gentle dog. He is a good hiking dog, but is also happy to hang out with his people. He is crate trained and house trained. He knows sit and shake. He does fine with the other dogs in our household.  
​Quigley is a 3 year old female Australian Cattledog (and mom to the Classics pups).  She is very sweet and LOVES, LOVES, LOVES her ball.  She will paw your foot to let you know you need to keep throwing her ball.  She is generally good with cats and is good with most dogs.  We think she would be fine with kids.
Doc is a 4 month old red/white Border Collie puppy.
Itty Bitty
Itty Bitty is a 5ish lb Chihuahua about 2 years old. She is as sweet as can be and gets along with my 3 dogs of all sizes. Itty is fairly well behaved and responding to training nicely. We have been having good results to potty training. As long as we keep to our schedule there are no accidents. She walks well on a leash and loves going for a walk. She is a lover and such a good snuggler. Cuddling with her person is a great treat. Itty Bitty is a wonderful little girl who would be a great addition to your family. 
Classic Pups
​Meet the CLASSICS!  These sweet pups are purebred Australian Cattledogs.  They are twelve weeks currently and ready for new homes.  They would like active homes that will keep their minds and bodies busy.  3 males, 3 females

​Cookie is a darling Chihuahua mix.  She is spunky and playful.  She should be about 11 lbs when she loses her holiday excesses.  We think she is roughly 2 years old.  

Che is a neutered male border collie and is estimated to be about 4.5 yrs old.  Che is a sweet dog and loves attention but he has a jumping on people problem that has him looking for a new home. He also gets bored and therefore destructive to landscaping and sprinkler systems. He is a good dog with boundless energy and deserves a home that can give him the time and attention he needs. Che really enjoys hiking and snowshoeing and does really well off leash on the trails and never gets too far away.
​Martha is a lovely 1-2 year old Border Collie/Australian Cattledog mix.  She is on the small side, maybe 30-35 lbs.  She has a delightful disposition and is shy but eager to please.  She is good with dogs and seems okay with cats, but did get into trouble in her youth around chickens.  This dog is a doll!
Border Collie mix puppies
​These little dynamos are about 12 weeks old.  We believe they are border collie mix puppies.  They will need active and committed homes.
