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.

​We believe Cinnamon may be a Kelpie x German Shepherd mix.  She is a LOVELY dog, about 18 months old and 55 lbs.  She is good with dogs, cats, people.  Has a wonderful calm demeanor.  Very smart and willing to learn.  Housetrained, spayed, and current on vaccinations.
Ruggles is about a 9 month Shepherd mix (DNA test suggests 50% German Shepherd, 25% Labrador, and 25% Staffordshire) . She is ever so sweet. She is shy when meeting new people and can bark at them. I have been working with her on that and she is really responding well. She is a submissive girl and when she meets other dogs she usually lies down and rolls over. But does she like to play. I have a 1 year ish pup and the 2 of them play and play. My white Shepherd even plays with her which is unusual. She leaves my Lhasa Ahpso alone as he doesn't like to play. She crates at night or when I go out and we are working on basic commands. She is house broken. She is such a wonderful girl. Really smart. Ruggles would do well in a family with another playful dog. She is an active puppy and likes her walks and would love to run with you. I think she would also be a great hiking partner. She needs activity but she settles in the house great and usually I can find her sleeping in a sun spot. She would make an awesome addition to your family. 
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.
Landon is a sweet, 8-9 YO border collie mix who has spent most of his life in the shelter with his brother, through no fault of their own. A HeRD volunteer has been spending a lot of time with him and his brother at the shelter, working with them in order to get them ready to move into a loving foster home. Landon is more shy than his brother and slower to trust, so we believe a quiet home would be best for this sweet boy. He does warm up after he gets to know you, but he will need a patient forever home that is willing to work on building his confidence. He's proficient on leash and will come when called once you have earned his trust. Even though he's spent most of his life with his brother, we think that they would do best in a home without each other. Separate from his brother, Landon is much more willing to accept all the love you can give him! Landon does well with other dogs, unknown with cats, and would prefer a home without small children. He is UTD on vaccinations, neutered, HW negative, and micro-chipped. Don't let Landon's age deter you either, he still has a decent amount of energy (the shelter staff describes it as a puppy-like energy) and would love to be your walking buddy and companion! He wants nothing more than to find his forever home that will let him live out the rest of his years without all that noise he's been used to at the shelter!  
 Kramer is a sweet, 8-9 YO border collie mix who has spent most of his life in the shelter with his brother, through no fault of their own. A HeRD volunteer has been spending a lot of time with him and his brother at the shelter, working with them in order to get them ready to move into a loving foster home. He was very shy of people when she first met him, but now wags his tail and jumps on his shelter door when he sees her, anxious to spend time with someone who understands there's still a LOT of love left in this world for him. Kramer is a quiet dog and extremely sweet! He is cautious when first meeting new people but quickly warms up. He is now proficient on leash, and will come when you call him. Even though he's spent most of his life with his brother, we think they would do best in a home without each other. He just needs some work building their confidence, and they are able to do this much easier without the other brother distracting them. Kramer likes other dogs, unknown with cats, and would do fine in a home with children. He is UTD on vaccinations, neutered, HW negative, and micro-chipped. Don't let Kramer's age deter you, he still has a decent amount of energy (the shelter staff describes it as a puppy-like energy) and would love to be your walking buddy and then curl up next to you on the couch and cuddle!  

He is 3 years old. 3/4 border collie 1/4 Catahoula.  He's a super friendly, lovable dog.  He's great around kids, people, other dogs, and little dogs. He won't chase chickens, horses, cattle unless provoked by another dog, but he will chase cats.  He likes to dig.  He's never shown any aggression toward anyone, he loves everybody.  He knows come and down, and listens well. He's got lots of energy.
Gabby is a wonderful 5 month old Border Collie mix puppy. She loves every person, dog, and cat but also picks up on which dogs or cats do not want to play with her. We went to open space and she was very excited about the new experience. The people there and at the vet just loved her. Gabby is young, her intake vetting said 3-4 months. She is very cute and sweet and loves everything like a typical puppy. She loves to meet all people, other dogs, and cats. She is learning quickly and pretty much respects dogs and cats when they do not want to play with her. She is very smart. She also loves toys, bones and balls plus she loves food.
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.
Cheyenne is a 3-5 year old, 55lb collie/shepherd mix with a medium coat. She has thrived in her foster home, doing very well with four other dogs, 7 and 10 year old children and a dog savvy cat. She is a calm, mellow girl in the house, very sweet and loving. She's doing well with crate training, learning to walk on a leash. She hasn't had an accident or chewed anything inappropriate.  She shows high drive with rabbits and squirrels while on walks so a fenced yard is a must. She goes to work at construction sites with her foster dad on nice days; the noise and people never faze her.
She is a food motivated girl, and she will take the opportunity to clean off a counter. With reasonable supervision and as she's learned that she will be fed consistently this behavior has improved.  She shows some mild separation anxiety so would do better with a home where she wasn't left all day, or could come to work with her people. She has an amazing nose, on her first walk she tracked the kid's trick or treat route. The scent was 2 weeks old! Cheyenne would do well as an only dog, or with an older dog. She is spayed, current on vaccines and micro chipped.
Raz is an 8 year old miniature Australian Shepherd/Australian Cattledog.  He's a friendly, happy guy with a stereotypical aussie personality.  He loves to cuddle and sleep on the bed.  He is house-trained and can be trusted loose in the house and also is fine with being crated.  He stays close and listens well on hikes.  We would prefer a home with no infants/toddlers.  Raz is fine with dogs and cats.  Looking for the all around good buddy?  Here he is.

Fen is a great little border collie mix pup.  He has a bit of blue in one eye and my have husky as part of his mix.  At 6 months old, he enjoys playing with other dogs and exploring life!  He has a mellower personality and will just melt into your arms.  Fen has been a delightful foster pup. He is young and playful but can chill. He enjoys playing with our older border collies. He is pretty quiet but can get on a little barking jag during play! He will let out howls that match the notes played on the cello; he has good intonation! Fen is crate-trained and potty trained and has run of the house most of the time. He spends the night on our bed and loves to snuggle. He travels very well, loads up in the vehicle on command and takes his place in the back seat. He is good on the leash and great on walks, even off-leash. Fen wants to be with you, to be your tag-along pup, and he does not run off. He loves toys! He will stash favorites on the bed. With a little training could probably be a good fetcher of balls. Fen will need further socialization with people and activities as he is a bit shy. While curious with our cats, he has shown no malice – just puppy active curiosity. The cats still don’t like that.  
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.  ​

​Stella is a singer and dancer. She cheers you on when you’re heading out the door and welcomes you back with a happy dance and a request for a belly rub. As soon as you touch her collar and leash she’s ready for the next adventure. Stella is happiest at your side whether that’s in the car, on a leash walk through the neighborhood or hiking. After which she is very content to curl up in a sunny spot for the rest of the afternoon. Stella has perfect house training habits as well as great recall. She’s also extremely food motivated and an avid couch snuggler. Stella is a tall, leggy medium sized dog and we’re guessing she is around two years old. has great manners when meeting new dogs, on or off leash. In her previous home she lived with two children who loved her very much. However I do not know anything about how she does with cats.  We’re guessing she’s an English Shepherd or maybe a collie mix. Stella desperately wants a best friend forever who loves belly rubs just as much as she does. 
Sweets is a petite 15 lb toy Australian Shepherd.  She is four years old, but lived in a hoarding situation so is a bit timid.  She would benefit from a patient person who will help build her confidence.  She does not have any aggression issues.  She does well with other dogs and should be okay with cats too.  She is a bit talkative.
