Luke is a neutered male 5 ½ year old Australian Shepherd.  He is a social and loving companion dog. He is food motivated when it comes to training and can learn quick. He has the basic obedience down (sit, stay, drop or down). His owner will be moving to senior housing this year and regretfully has to find another home for him.  Luke likes to chase any creature that moves fast (squirrels, rabbits, birds or deer if they run), so would do best in a home with no cats or little critters. He’s afraid of bikes, roller skates and skateboards and he would chase and nip if not on leash.  He has done some agility training, (weave poles and jumps), started some freestyle too. He gets along with most dogs as we go to the dog park regularly. He plays fetch with me but if other dogs chase the ball, he’ll stay back and let them have it. Luke has a sensitive stomach but does well on Prescription Science Diet Duck and Potato. He is crate trained for in the home and travels in a crate in my car just for safety reasons. Luke’s perfect home would be with someone that can give him the time, patience, energy and space he needs. Luke weighs just over 50 lbs.
Rook is a fun loving and active dog. He is 3 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.
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?
Jill is a 2 year 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.
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.
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.
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.
Eve is a 2-1/2 year old Blue Heeler mix, spayed, up-to-date on shots and micro chipped. Her love of people will melt your heart the first time you meet her. Her love literally has no boundaries. She LOVES squeaky toys and some tug of war. When rescued she did have a broken front leg, and will need time to build the muscle and strength back in that leg. She has a lot of energy, so as she heals I am sure she would be a great outdoor companion. Eve is being fostered with 6 other dogs, 2 cats and 2 teenagers. Eve is crate trained and is quiet as a mouse in them. She has also received basic obedience training, walks on a leash, and is house trained. She will do great with someone who can love her to pieces, but be able to let her know there are boundaries. She tends to listen to males better than females, so a female might have to show a little more authority. As typical with all my heelers, she is good with inside cats and can be distracted if she decides they need her attention, but outside cats, and rabbits are fair game. Eve loves to play with other dogs, but would need to have a meet and greet with a potential sibling to ensure their play style matches.

Rhee is a 2-year old Australian Cattledog mix and she weighs 30 lbs. She is the dog with the “most”. She is the most affectionate, most playful, most smart, most energetic, and can get in the most trouble if she doesn’t get enough exercise. She loves people and loves to play with other dogs. She’s house-trained and knows how to use a dog door. We take her to the dog park about every other day to keep her energy level down. She also runs in a field and she follows our black lab everywhere. She knows basic commands, (sit, stay, place, come, down). Her quirks are that she barks at noisy things like vacuum cleaners, motorcycles, and hair dryers. She loves people and will be right next to you every morning to give you a wake-up kiss. She gets along great with kids, but very small children may be intimidated by her energy. 
Genny is a young female heeler cross. She is ever so sweet and loves her people. She is well behaved and low to moderate energy. Genny is house broken, walks on a leash well and knows sit.  Genny crates well and is a love to have around.
Mouse is a neutered male 2 year old Australian Cattledog.  He is on the smaller side - maybe 25 lbs or so?  He has lots of drive - loves to fetch and tug.  Mouse doesn't hear, but don't let that stop you from considering this awesome little guy.
​Jerry came to me completely terrified of everything and really didn’t want to give humans a second chance to hurt him again, thankfully time is healing those wounds. He has come a long way with his confidence in the short couple of months that he has been here. He absolutely loves other dogs and does great around my two cats, now that he isn’t afraid of them. He seems to ignore horses for the most part but seems a little too interested in birds. He does take a little bit to warm up to new people because of his mistrust and is still very afraid of children. He has shown zero aggression with his fear but I feel only an older child will work for him. The one thing that his past was unable to break was his heart of gold, he is literally one of the sweetest dogs I have ever had the pleasure of loving! He has a lot of energy to burn and will require regular exercise but really settles down inside and is wonderfully behaved. He absolutely hated being kenneled but he is a very good boy when left home alone and at night. His very smart and has learned how to jump our 5 foot fence so he cannot be left unattended in a fenced yard. He doesn’t go anywhere he just doesn’t like to feel trapped. Jerry just wants love and patience. The right family must be willing to work to gain his trust, he doesn’t give it freely, but the work you put in he will return 10 fold!!
Blue is a beautiful, easy going blue heeler/black lab. He is a very loving boy who enjoys the company of other dogs, and loves people and children. He loves to go on walks, and is very gentle on the leash. He loves his crate where he sleeps at night, and will even go in his crate on his own for some quiet time during the day. There are a few things that excite Blue, and one of them is that he loves to eat, and he is currently working on waiting patiently for his food (he typically barks and jumps at the dog gate to show his excitement!). He also gets very excited when he sees a cat, so the foster is not quite sure if he is good with them, or not, due to his excitement. Blue is wonderful with kids, and has had excellent behavior around his fosters’ four year old little boy. He is a mellow boy who loves to be massaged, brushed, and loved on. He will bark if there is something to bark at, such as a motion light going on in the middle of the night. Blue’s only negatives are that he chews when he is bored, and will at times eat what he chews on. He is still young 1 to 2 years old, so hopefully he will grow out of this.  A good potential adopter for Blue will be someone/family that can spend quality time with him each day as a full member of their family. He is very social and playful with other dogs, so his foster does think that another dog in the family would be good for him. He is house trained, and does not “mark” outside. He will cry/whine in his crate if he ever needs to go potty during the night, which is rare. Blue is a sensitive boy who thrives on positive reinforcement. He sits, shakes, and often will sit straight on his hind legs hoping for a treat! He is adorable! Blue is around 2 years old, neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Blue is fostered in Central Utah.  You can view a video of him at https://www.dropbox.com/sc/4oyy8f3e5c1jnst/AAD5Z5pc73EocmsKDb54APE_a
I'm Sorbet, a 4 month old chihuahua mix. I may not be a herding dog but I'm sure glad they pulled me from the scary shelter with my friend Snickers (also available through Herd)! I'm a very playful pup and love exploring everything from sticks in the yard to pieces of food hidden in a kong!  I love playing with my foster siblings, especially the ones around my own size (10lbs). I have some very big ears and am using them to learn new things like "sit" and "down."  I'm very good about being in my crate and like to sleep in there with my cozy blankets and a chew toy. I'm very energetic and love to play but am also ready to snuggle whenever you are! I'm really hoping to find my forever home and people who will help me learn what it's like to be part of a family!
Hi, my name is Snickers and I'm a very sweet 5 month old female Chihuahua mix I may not be a great herding dog but I have a lot going for me! I love snuggling and having my belly rubbed and ears scratched. I snuggle very nicely with my little foster dog friends and am getting used to the big golden retriever I live with. I'm definitely new to being around people and will curl up when I get frightened but I'm coming out of my shell and am going to be an amazing family member if someone will give me the opportunity
Gentry is a gorgeous Australian Cattledog.  He has a lovely disposition.  He is missing a bit of one paw, so walks with a bit of a limp and wont be doing any sports competitions. He is just getting settled and his personality is coming out more and more. Gentry likes his space. He doesn't like other dogs getting in his face, I think he is just a bit vulnerable because of his three-legged status. He likes to be close to his foster mom, like a shadow but not underfoot. If given an opportunity, he would like to be a lap dog and when you attempt to stand up or move him over, he pushes back like he's saying, 'hey do you really need to stand up? Maybe you can sit awhile longer and rub my tummy and tell me how good I am.' He's definitely a herder. He likes to bite at the ankles of the other dogs. He has engaged in some play activity and the more comfortable he gets the more he will play. However, he likes to initiate play rather than for the other dogs to. I've walked him a few times and he loves it but his stamina is not good. He's great on a leash, however. Knows some basic commands. Good at recall. Seems housebroken but its early yet.  He likes eating laying down.  He does not go after the food of other dogs. I have his water dish elevated. Twice when I was outside in the back yard, he jumped on the kitchen counter to look out the window and he's a counter surfer and window watcher. He's a good guard dog and responds to night noises or strange noises in the back yard but is easily called off. He does cry a bit when I leave.  He would be fine with other dogs but would prefer to be the only one. He likes to wrestle in the grass with me and give me kisses. I've taken him in the car and he has problems keeping his balance but likes to hang his head out the window and loves to go for rides. None of his quirks or are anything big. He would make a good companion dog for a semi-active person willing to take him for short walks, car rides and love on him a lot.   He loves, loves and loves people, but older children would be better than younger children.  
​Maika is an absolutely stunning Belgian Sheepdog (Groenendael), about three years old. She is a medium to high energy dog and currently weighs about 50 pounds (but needs to gain some weight). Since she is large and very tall, she needs a home and yard with ample space to run and play. Maika is a very happy, loyal, sweet and affectionate dog but also sensitive and strong-willed. She knows some basic commands like sit and wait. She is eager to learn and easy to train. Because of her size and breed characteristics, she is looking for an experienced dog owner or family familiar with the needs of her breed and preferably no kids or kids age 14 or up. Maika gets along great with all 6 other dogs in her foster home and is very friendly with the cats as well. She loves to go on walks, hikes and is a terrific running partner. Maika rides well in the car and is crate trained as well as leash trained. She loves to play with tennis balls and carefully puts them ready within reach for you to throw again! Also, chew toys and pull toys are among her favorites. Since Maika is very playful and loves dog company, she would be the happiest in a home with one or more dog friends, preferably bigger dogs that appreciate her enthusiasm for play. Maika is a terrific dog that is hoping to make someone very happy with her loving company.
Goose is a 40 lb 15 month old Border Collie mix who was adopted from a shelter 6 months ago. He has done well in his new home but is looking for a even better match. He currently lives on one acre with chickens and a heeler mix companion. He is fully house trained and also spent a month boarded with a professional dog trainer to learn to come, sit and stay because his owners just welcomed their first child and wanted a jump start on his training. He has responded well to his training and his trainer mentioned he needed a job and would be an asset to rancher or a owner that would give him daily tasks. We want to give him that chance! He is very friendly but needs to be supervised or crated when around children as he will nip and herd children if he has the opportunity. He gets along well with other dogs though he can dominate play time. He is fixed and up to date on all vaccinations and receives monthly heart-worm prevention.  Goose is a great dog and he deserves the chance to be happy.
Kellie​  is such a little angel!  Kellie is a tri-colored herding mix (Australian Cattledog/corgi?), about 6-7 months old. She is fully house trained and a perfect little snuggler. She loves to give kisses to people and to other dogs! She does great around all other dogs. She is very playful and would like to be the center of attention. She's very well behaved and she has learned to sit already. She is great on a leash, too! Kellie would do great in a home with other dogs and maybe cats. She loves to be near her human all the time. She's small that she could be a lap dog. She has an adorable and sassy personality. She is a medium energy dog. She likes to go on long walks and then she is just all tuckered out for the rest of the day. 
Jake is a smart, wonderful and bright puppy. He gets along well with other dogs but I don't have cats so I am not sure about those. He is learning his basic skills slowly but surely and is able to stay, come fairly consistently and we are working on sit. He walks pretty well on a leash. He is crate trained and goes overnight without an accident. He is house trained also as long as you keep him on his schedule for going potty. He is very friendly to people and I think will be good with all ages. For smaller children he is a puppy though and he does jump up. We are working on that. Jake would be a wonderful addition to your family and is a love to be around. ​
The presidential pups
Molli is a 7 year old spayed female border collie.  
Red is a super cute and happy 50lb 3.5 yo (approx) red heeler mix who is a fantastic best friend. He is well trained - sit, stay, down, heel, come, shake, high-five, etc. He even knows "roll over", but hates it so he'll pull all stunts (and talk loudly) to avoid it! Quite the ham.  His recall is very solid and he's great off-leash. He's an excellent hiking/camping partner, not so fond of horses (but could learn), great in the house (but likes to be with his person as much as possible), and a super cuddler. He's a bit dominant with other dogs, but basically good - goes to doggie daycare regularly and has no problems. His bad habits are he does jump up, kind of like a pogo stick, and he does get on furniture in the house when no one is home. He is also really unpredictable with kids, and can be aggressive, so he will need to go somewhere without children. Red will need someone willing to keep up his training and advance it even. He's super super smart and really just wants to please you. Would be really good at agility! 
Sierra is 8 and is a purebred Aussie.  She is definitely a people dog, and wants to be in the same room as you are at all times. She might be better suited for someone who works at home or has someone home more often to be with her. She has always been a very nervous, anxious dog.  Storms, weird noises, and wind are just a few of the things that give her panic attacks. When she gets scared, sometimes she runs away, or hides in closets, and a couple of times she has even tried to scratch through doors, and chew through her kennel. She gets nervous if we leave her in the back yard by herself for longer than a few minutes.  Other than her anxiety, she is a good dog. She is smart, mild tempered, and loves to play. She knows tricks, can catch a Frisbee, and loves hiking with us. She loves people and likes to be with them at all times. She gets along great with other dogs and isn't aggressive towards people or animals (she does bark at strangers who come to the door). 
Hi, I'm Carlo. I am a handsome Aussie/Sheltie/Border Collie (?) male, approximately 6 months old. I am very interested in cats and love to chase them around so I would do better in a family without cats. I enjoy all of the typical puppy stuff. You will always find me with a toy in my mouth! Although shy of strangers, I warm up quickly and love attention. I do well with children of all ages and other dogs.
​Jaker is a 14 month old tricolor Border Collie mix. He has a beautiful, wavy coat. Jaker weighs about 45 pounds. Jaker is a very active dog who loves to play with toys. He needs a home that can provide plenty of exercise. He appears to be housebroken. He is a friendly, goofy guy who is ready to learn. Jakers recently completed a basic obedience class. He walks well on a leash and knows sit, down, and stay. His recall is improving. Jakers rides well in the car and was a perfect gentleman on a recent road trip--well-behaved in the motel and at outdoor cafes.  
Willow - Adoption Pending
Stanlee is a handsome boy of 7 months and 40 pounds who looks like a German Shepherd-mix. Stan has been learning a lot since he arrived from New Mexico where he was picked up as a stray. He uses a dog door, is learning good house-manners and likes his crate. Stan loves other dogs, especially ones that will play with him, and he is good with cats and has learned they usually do not want to play with him. Stan walks nicely on leash and has been to open space and the dog park both of which he enjoyed. If you are looking for a good-looking young boy with loads of potential, Stan may be your man!
Harper is a 6 month old beagle mix. She is a happy puppy that adjusts quickly to a new home. Harper is great with cats and dogs big and small. She is a little shy with new people but loves attention and being with her family. We expect her to do well with people of all ages. Harper loves to go on walks and is learning to walk on a leash. She loves to run and play with other dogs. Little Harper is doing a good job with house training and does well in a crate. Her favorite toys are tennis balls, squeaker toys and fluffy toys. A great puppy looking for a family to call her own!
Adopt a friendly, playful, snuggly puppy! The Presidential puppies have had age appropriate vaccinations, are microchipped, on heartworm preventative and infused with extra love and cuddles.  Born approximately May 1, 2016, they currently weigh 8-10 pounds at three months of age.  A puppy is a project. The Presidential puppies are intelligent and will thrive with ongoing training while they learn the house rules. All are bursting with puppy love and playfulness and are looking for an owner who will spend the time helping them to reach their full potential. Brimming with puppy enthusiasm, they are ready to move on to their new homes.​

Breezy is an 8 year old Border Collie/Australian Shepherd mix.  She is a sweet girl who would like a quiet, loving retirement home with lots of petting.  She is good with other dogs, but would chase a kitty.  Because she was not spayed at a young age, Breezy has several mammary tumors that will be removed over the course of several surgeries and will be spayed to prevent future tumors.  You wont find a sweeter dog.
Suki is an 8 year old spayed female border collie. She has been very protective over her person and unfortunately since their first child was born  has taken to "protecting" mom from the baby and jumps up and nips at the baby's feet when he is being carried.  His crying seems to make her even more nervous and more reactive. The family feels she would be better in a home without children. She gets along with the two toy aussies in the home and will sometimes play with them but other times she will nip and herd them.  She is getting a little stiff in her hips so she doesn't seem to be able to go for as long of walks as she used to. She is current on all vaccinations. She has always been on heartworm prevention and is on cosequin, duralactin and fish oils to prevent arthritis.  She is crate trained at night and actually prefers to go into her crate to lay down and relax periodically throughout the day as well. She has gone to boarding and grooming with no problems. She LOVES to play fetch with a ball and also loves to swim. She does show some agility potential. She knows basic commands such as sit, lay down, roll over, "outside" and "bedtime" and sometimes "stay". She is very petite (23 lbs) and timid. She does not like cats. 
​​Pippin is a 4 year old Border Collie Australian Shepherd mix.  He is good with kids.  We are told he is good with cats.  He likes dogs as long as they aren't too pushy and in-your-face.  
Nala is a six year old spayed border collie/Australian Shepherd mix who loves to snuggle. She is active and loves to run around, swim, tug, fetch and go on car rides. Nala is great with cats, dogs and people and is house broken. She is learning to walk on a loose leash and be comfortable in a crate. 
Harley is a great-looking Border Collie.  He is neutered and current on vaccinations.  At 10 years old, he is ready for the good life in a forever home.
​​Willow is a 2 year old Shetland Sheepdog (sheltie).  She likes other dogs and made instant friends with our cat. She is house broken, well mannered, crate trained, and walks very well on a leash. She is spayed and up to date on all shots. She's a fan of tennis balls and squeaky toys. We are told she is also good with kids. She needs a forever home where she'd love having other dog buddies or cat friends. She would do well in an active home, she's no couch potato.  She is healthy, friendly, and has a moderate to active energy level.
Mama Tessa (adopted)
Jubel is a seven year old neutered male.  He is probably one of the prettiest and flashiest border collies. Jubel would do best in a home as an only dog or with maybe in a well-managed home with one or two other dogs, depending on their temperament. Jubel has always been a "slinky" and somewhat of a "scardy-cat" sort of dog. He likes to the corral and he does well with his recall and does not chase the deer. He has, however, taken to pushing the Jack Russell of the household around. He will bond very tightly to the person who fills that place - very tightly.​
