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?
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.
Genny is a young female heeler cross. She is ever so sweet and loves her people.  Genny is house broken and knows sit.  Genny crates well and is a love to have around.  She does like to chase things that move, including cars, so will need a fenced yard.  NO CATS.
Anastasia is a 7 month old chihuahua mix.  "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
Hannah is an 8 year old spayed female border collie/Australian shepherd mix.  She is looking for a new home because her owner passed away.  She may be happiest as an only dog.  She is good with cats and she loves people.  This is an amazingly sweet dog!  Hannah is awesome. Her only perk is not liking other dogs. Every person in the world is her friend, although children probably would be annoying.  Wants to be by you but not a velcro dog. Loyal to a fault, friendly to a fault, gets out the gate and goes to the porch to sit. Perfect inside dog. She doesnt really like to play, not high energy but enthusiastic for
walks, which she is perfect on and spending time with you. Loves a good comb out not sure about a bath though. She loves car rides, hikes and coffee on the porch. Teaching her not to lick and not to jump up on people would be a good idea.
Clover is about three and a half years old (approximate birthdate May 2013) and is most likely a spaniel mix. She is a sweet, affectionate dog. She is loyal and kind to her family. She does not bark or act aggressive toward strangers who come to the door.  She does okay with dogs that she is introduced to slowly and in a controlled manner and likes to play with dogs her own size once she becomes familiar with them. Clover  will do best in a home with older children or no children at all. Younger kids make her anxious. She can be quite stong-willed. She needs a 6 foot fence.  She knows several commands: Sit, Down, Bed, Leave it, Wait, Kennel.

Adopt a friendly, playful, snuggly puppy!   Born approximately May 1, 2016, Zachary is just over 6 months old.  He is about 25 lbs so shouldn't be over 35 to 40 lbs full grown.  He is very social, but still a puppy so will need some training and manners still.  Zachary will be a great family pet.

Adopt a friendly, playful, snuggly puppy!   Born approximately May 1, 2016, Grover is about 32 lbs.  He is incredibly intelligent and very social.  Imagine how fun he would be to teach tricks to!  Grover is a mixed breed featuring Border Collie, Rat Terrier and Australian Kelpie.

 Female four month old Australian Shepherd/Poodle mix.  Too cute for words.  However, please be aware that contrary to some rumors, poodle mixes are not hypoallergenic or non-shedding.  In fact, poodle mix coats often require a lot of care and regular grooming.  But if you are up for that and love cute puppies?  Well, they don't get much cuter than this.
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.
 2 females.  Australian shepherd or Border Collie or Shepherd mix puppies.  These little guys were orphaned at 5 weeks and are looking for forever homes.  Puppies require a commitment of time and training.

Leigh - Is a quick study. Knows sit and cuddles lots. Crate trained.

 Sansa - this little white "angel" is sneaky! Currently has a little trust issue on recalls due to long confinement from a broken leg, but I am sure that will be easily corrected once we get a chance to keep her with the group. She loves attention and people, not much scares her, and she gets over it pretty quickly on what does. She will give someone a run for their money. Not sure if all that energy is just pent up or if it will last, but her sweetness and antics will fill your heart.

 Cowboy Puppies
These little cuties are border collie/Great Pyrenees mix puppies (DNA test suggests:  Border Collie, Great Pyranees, Weimeraner, and Saluki).  All males.  Date of birth 12-13-16.  Very social and outgoing.  Due to their mix, they will be larger size dogs (70 lbs roughly).
Suzie is approximately 5 yrs old.  She is a border collie mix. Suzie and her sister were kept in an outdoor kennel for most of their lives. They were never let out and were kept in very poor living conditions. Suzie is now learning that life is fun and enjoys exploring. She has a happy , goofy side and loves toys! She bonds quickly with 'her people' but is very reserved and unfriendly with strangers. When we first got her she would nip when pushed or frightened. We our working on building her confidence and she is improving daily. Because of this Suzie should not go to a home with children. She needs an understanding and experienced owner. She is incredibly smart and eager to learn. Suzie lived in a very isolated environment with no socialization. We're still getting to know her disposition around other dogs. She is unsure around them but is getting better. She has a bit too much 'border collie eye' for cats. She can't help but herd them, relentlessly! Suzie is a wonderful dog with lots of potential. 
​•Rangeley is a spayed female Australian Cattle Dog (red heeler) and is approximately seven years old. She is in excellent health (recently had blood work and a check-up at the vet). She has developed very mild incontinence, which the vet assured us is common in female dogs of her age, but we have been able to control that issue 100% with use of a twice daily medicine called Proin. Rangeley has many excellent qualities. She loves people --- both her people and meeting new people. She is very cuddly and attentive to people and LOVES a good belly scratch. Rangeley is very athletic and loves to run, play frisbee, hike, race around in the snow, and swim. She really enjoys coming with us when we backcountry ski or snowshoe. In short, she's an awesome adventure companion. Rangeley also as some challenging qualities that need to be managed. She is not trustworthy around babies, children, or cats and should be in a home without them. Rangeley has a vendetta against big, noisy trucks. She will chase them if not leashed! As a result, she should only be allowed to romp off leash on trails/in areas where there is no traffic nearby. Rangeley has become reactive toward unfamiliar dogs when she is on leash. We are now walking her with a head collar, which makes the behavior easier to control. She also loves treats and can often be distracted with them. Although Rangeley has issues with unfamiliar dogs on walks, she has many good dog friends who we've introduced her to in our home. She has done really well with friends dogs when properly introduced.  

Phoebe is a beautiful 8 year old Aussie who has lived the life of a breeder. At the age of 8, her owner gave her to a young couple, who then relinquished her to a Utah shelter stating she was fearful of men and had nipped the adult male in the house. I've had Phoebe two weeks now and she is a timid girl, very hand shy. I haven't seen an ounce of aggression, just a very unsure, fearful sweetheart. She has started to approach for loves, but is clearly lacking in confidence. I have not seen any difference between fear of males versus females. She is great around other dogs, cats are unknown. She is house trained and doggy door trained. She has a good recall. Phoebe would be fine with other dogs, but would do well as an only pup too. Due to her timidity, no small children. Phoebe will need a very loving, consistent home that will help her learn to trust again.

Winnie is a 17 month old (born September 2015) short haired Border Collie. She is spayed and up-to-date on all shots and had her most recent wellness exam in December 2016. Winnie is a typical Border Collie with lots of energy, smart as a whip, and an affinity for squirrels and bunnies. She is a great family dog and likes lots of attention. She has been around cats when visiting other homes, but we cant say for sure what her reaction would be to cats as full-time housemates. She is best suited for a family with lots of wide-open space for her to run and play – a small fenced-in yard is not ideal. She is great on long runs (5-8 miles), and loves to hike.  She also loves to play ball.  Her current household has a 10-year-old and a 6-year-old and she is very playful with them.
11 Weeks
Nash is a 4 yr old blue heeler/border collie cross. He was brought into the animal shelter in Bozeman by a concerned neighbor of the former owner when he was 1 yr old, after being hit by a car and left for dead in his backyard. The shelter staff and generous veterinarians performed multiple surgeries on Nash to repair his broken pelvis and back, and he also had an FHO on the right side. The current owner fostered him after his surgeries and adopted him after his medical foster. Three years after his accident, you cannot tell that Nash ever had such a difficult start. He is vivacious and energetic and loves to work and play. He is good with other dogs and has been in doggie day care and boarding situations with new dogs frequently. Ultimately, he needs a home that can provide daily stimulation beyond what his current home can provide. His owners now work out of town and he is unable to go to work with them like he did initially. This means he isn't getting the attention he deserves and craves. He would do well in a home with other dogs and an active family. He is rambunctious so babies and toddlers may not be the best companions for him. He is friendly with all people, but does have a hard time controlling his excitement. He lives currently with children 8 and up and loves to play with them. He does have the tendency to chew paper products if he doesn't get his daily exercise. He is smart and listens well to those he has a deep connection with, although he does struggle to listen when he is actively "working" and herding his dog friends at the park. Nash loves to cuddle and sleep at the foot of the bed on the floor. He is afraid of fireworks and will find a hiding place during most 4th of July activities. He does ok off leash when with other dogs, but very well with just humans with no dog distractions. 
This handsome and intelligent cattledog is Sherlock.  Sherlock is a 5 year old neutered male.  Like most cattledogs, he is a loyal loving boy who will do best in a home that is familiar with cattledogs.  He is looking for a new home because his owner has moved from a country living situation to a small home in town and has not adjusted well.  He can be snippy and nervous with new people and needs a person who helps build his confidence and sets appropriate limits for him.  He has worked with a trainer and videos from his time in training are available to approved applicants.  Sherlock would do best in a home without children.  Sherlock is okay with cats when supervised but as a precaution should not be left unattended with them.
Cinnamon is a young spayed female Kelpie/German Shepherd mix.  She is a big girl, maybe 55 lbs.  She is mellow and takes new situations in stride.  She likes dogs that don't try to start fights and thinks people are great.  A real cuddler, this one.
Elle is a 6 year old spayed female Australian Shepherd.  She is a fetching fanatic!  She generally does well with other dogs and likes to play with them.  She is an active home and will let you know when she is not getting enough exercise by whining a bit.  She has a great big grin and would love to share her enthusiasm for life with you.
​George is almost 1 year old.  He is cattledog/border collie, and several additional breeds.  He is a smart, fun, goofball.  George is neutered and current on vaccinations.
​Willow is a year and half old Sheltie.  She is quite petite and super cute.  She has been bounced around a bit and needs a great committed home.  She is housetrained and likes people.  She plays well with dogs but can sometimes resource guard her favorite people so her new home should be comfortable with that.  For that same reason, we are recommending a home without small children.  Can you give this little princess the home she's been waiting fore?
​Varly is a 2.5 year old Australian Shepherd mix.  He needs a very experienced home that is confident working a dog through significant leash reactivity.
​Rally is likely some sort of border collie/aussie/Catahoula mix. Rally is new to rescue and is still being evaluated, but will soon be looking for his forever home. Rally is a sweet boy who is looking for someone who can work with him on his manners and confidence. Because he came into rescue with little manners, he will need to go to an adult only home with no cats. Rally is approximately 4-5 years old, neutered, micro-chipped and UTD on vaccinations.
​Roma is the greatest puppy. She is deaf, but she doesn’t know it. She’s smart, learns easily when the time is devoted to training, she loves to play with toys, she has a few favorites, she is potty trained and will go to the door and bark or scratch, she’s leash trained and does great on long walks (does 2 two and a half mile walks a day), she loves playing with her brother, and is a bundle of energy. She is crate trained for when we leave the house, but she loves sleeping in bed with us at night. She LOVES the snow. She has a great personality, has never met a stranger, loves everyone she meets, both people and dogs. She loves to give kisses and just wants attention. Since she is deaf, she will always look toward her leader (usually the one does the most training). She is a jumper and would do great in agility – she easily jumps on coffee tables and can jump gates. She is a wonderful companion and, with more training, I’m sure could excel at anything.
​Jewel "Julie" is a a young adult shepherd/husky mix weighing about 50 lbs (but should gain a little). She is a moderate to high energy dog, estimated to be about 2 years old. She is very people-focused and loves to be part of a family. She gets along great with other dogs and does well with dog-savvy cats. Julie was found as a stray and lived as an outdoor dog, but now prefers to be inside with her family. Since Julie is an active young adult, she needs regular exercise. She loves to go for walks, loves hiking and is an excellent running partner. She is learning to walk on a leash and benefits from an easy walker harness. She has the ability to jump fences but has not shown any interest so far. Julie is crate trained although she is a bit hesitant to get in the crate. She settles down quickly and sleeps in her crate at night without problems. A wire crate with a blanket over it or a hard sided crate make her feel safe. She is housebroken. Her recall needs training but she has a lot of potential. Julie quickly learned to sit for treats, for meals, and while getting ready for walks. She is very smart and eager to learn, so she would love to take dog training classes. She loves to play with all kinds of toys such as tennis balls, squeaker toys, rope toys and chew toys, both alone and with other dogs. Often she flings toys in the air and goes after them. Julie also loves to play with other dogs of different sizes. She is a very loving and cuddly dog.
Masha is a young moderate to high energy cattle dog mix, about a year old and she weighs about 35 lbs. She is a happy puppy that adjusts quickly to a new environment. Masha is very people focused and loves people of all ages. She is working hard on being less mouthy when she wants or gives attention so she is not a good fit with little kids. Masha gets along great with other dogs and does ok with dog-savvy cats, as long as they don't run. She loves to go for walks, hikes and is a great running partner. She also loves to play with water. Because she is a young active dog, she needs regular exercise and play time. She walks well on a leash. Masha loves to play with toys, with other dogs and with people. Fluffy toys, chew toys, rope toys and squeaker toys are her favorite. She likes to collect toys and sleep on top of them. Masha is crate trained and sleeps through the night once settled down. She is a very loving dog who loves nothing more than attention from her people. 
Toby is an approximately three year old border collie who is new to rescue. Toby was very sad in the shelter, so his foster family will evaluate him further once they've given him all the love he can handle. Stay tuned as we find more out about this sweet boy!
