Sassy is a 3 year old Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix.  Sassy is current on vaccinations and spayed. Sassy is a smaller girl, maybe 40 lbs.  She is active and would do best with a job to keep her busy.  She is not a good fit for children or cats.  Sassy would probably be best as an only dog or with a male dog for company.  She is very loving to her person.  She can be good with other people but needs to be introduced properly or she can be inclined to sneakily nip at strangers.  She would be good running partner.  Sassy has been waiting a while for just the right home, are you it?
Yukon is a 4 year old Australian Shepherd/Australian Cattledog mix.  So far Yukon has turned out to be a big loving Teddy bear. I can't find much to complain about him. He chases the cats but is not aggressive.  The old story, they run he chases. He is already getting along with my female Cocker Spaniel (she puts him into place if he gets too "close" and my male Chihuahua. He doesn't want to be the Alpha male. He is clearly afraid of my husband but already it is better than yesterday. He barks if someone approaches the house. He loves to be combed and it will be a daily routine.  He flinches when I throw a ball or if he is touched too sudden!. He will regain trust in short time I believe. He has not attempted to jump fences. He is definitely smart and walks on a leash. Even if he pulls hard at the beginning of a walk, he settles in. He says hi (paw)! He just needs a lot of loving touch and he will be such a winner!! He really is a very beautiful dog!!

Cookie is a 8 year old Border Collie/Labrador Retriever mix.  She is good with kids and cats and fine with dogs that respect her space.  She loves water, toys, and cuddling!  She is an active girl who enjoys hiking and playing in the hose.  She is wild about her ball and loves to play fetch.  Cookie is spayed and current on vaccinations.
Sebastien is a 4 year old Australian Shepherd mix with a tail.  He is housetrained and likes to play with balls and other toys.  Sebastien is a good hiking buddy and while not over the top around the house, can keep up with you for a nice long hike.  He would like to chase horses and cats so would do best without that option.  Sebastien is neutered and current on vaccinations.  Sebastien loves his people but can be pretty protective around strangers so needs a home that is willing to continue to work with him to manage those behaviors.
Rook is a fun loving and active dog. He is 2 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.
Bailey the Black Lab
Bailey turned 2 in January. She is good with cats. She is a lab mix. She is protective when it comes to new people, but is very friendly after she sees that the new person was accepted by us. My daughter plays with bailey and bailey plays back, bailey loves to play with children, but should go to a home without small children as she likes to nip at heels when there is a high level of activity. Another downfall for bailey would be how she barks/bites at tires. Bailey loves the water, car rides, walks, playing ball and any family activity. Bailey is spayed, house trained 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?
Rose is a 1 year old spayed female Border Collie mix.  She is fairly small, about 40 lbs.  She is very loving and affectionate to her person.  She is housetrained.  Rose will do best with an experienced handler as she is somewhat reactive to strangers and tends to bark at them.  She is also possessive of her person around other dogs.  But she is a fun companion and snuggle buddy.
Razzle is a gorgeous, sweet 7 year old Border Collie.  He is a loving dog that is generally good with other dogs and does okay with cats.  He is good with older children.  Razzle has separation anxiety and would do best in a home where people are home a lot or where he can go with them.  Razzle is neutered and current on vaccinations.
Prancer is about a year and a half years old, stands 21" at the shoulders and weighs 38 lbs. My daughter calls him Prancer because of the way he throws his front feet in the air when he walks, like he's prancing. He's very sweet, loves people, kids and dogs. He loves loves to play and wrestle with other dogs. He's okay with cats. Prancer walks great on a leash and is potty trained. He's really a great cuddler. 
Ellie Mae
Ellie Mae is an active 9 year old Corgi.  Super cute!
​Zoey is a pretty 9 month old spayed female border collie.  She likes to play and is high energy.  She has a few  neurological issues which you will notice give her an odd gait.  But don't make the mistake of thinking those will slow her down- all she knows is that she is a border collie and there are things to do and fun to have.  She likes to play with other dogs and does well at the dog park.  Zoey is working on basic commands like come and sit and will need to continue with her training in her new home.  She is crate trained and likes to play in the back yard.  She loves to be gently hugged and will sit and get petted for as long as you are willing.  Zoey needs a home that can work with a high energy special needs puppy and if you are that home she will reward you with lots of love and devotion.
Shadow is a little over a year old.  You can tell he is super smart.  He is excited to be in rescue where he can find a home that will take the time to teach him all the great things that border collie types can do.  He already knows a few things like sit and down, but would love to do agility or nosework or some other activity for smart dogs.  Shadow is neutered.
Jill is a 9 month 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.
Mattie is a Border Collie/Whippet mix who is under a year old. She was found as a stray. She was extremely shy and scared when she came to my home, and will most likely need a few days to feel comfortable when she moves to her final foster home/adoptive home. She does wonderfully with all of my six dogs of varying ages and breeds (though mainly herding breeds). She was recently introduced to a small dog that came to my home for a day, she growled at him through the dog gate, then once corrected by myself, she was back to her normal happy self. She loves to run and play with the other dogs. I have 11 acres of mostly horse pasture, and she runs around and around the area where I have my house. She is very fast and athletic. During my workday, Mattie is outside in a kennel with another dog, and does well besides some barking. When I am home, she is in the house with the other dogs. She is good around my cats, does not chase them, but does walk where they are and watches them. She is very good at recall, and knows her name. If she can hear me, she listens and comes back to me when called. She is great on leash, and is a gentle girl. At times she gets excited and jumps straight up in front of me. Mattie does have herding sense and loves to run to the fence and watch the goats/ewe along with the other dogs.
 She is a very lean, thin girl who loves to eat. She is great to eat in the same room with the other dogs, and if a dog comes to take her food, she allows it. She needs to be let out to the bathroom after she eats.
 She loves to dig in the dog yard and has a fun time doing it. She is very easy going and quiet, and loves individual attention.

His name is roscoe he is 3 yrs old. He weighs about 60 lbs. He's a blue heeler Australian Shepard mix. He is current on all his shots and I got him the rattle snake vaccination as well. I am looking to re home him because I moved to town and don't have the time to give him any more because he was not able to come with me. He is neutered. He is leash broke. He will ride in the car great. He is good with other dogs. Doesn't like cats and he's never been around kids. The only time I have had him be aggressive is when a stranger tried to walk on to our deck that was not welcomed by us. He loves to play will fetch a ball. Very playful loves attention. 
3 year old, male pure bred Australian Shepard to someone with a home that has more time for him. He is neutered and up to date on shots, except rabies (has, previously had it, will need booster). Knows sit, stay, down, heel, but is willing to learn more. Has a desire to "work" on a farm or ranch. Great with adults and older children, doesn't realize his own size when around younger children. Loves to play with other dogs, will probably chase cats. Would benefit from having space to run. Doesn't chew on dig.
Jackson is an 11 year old Springer Spaniel/Border Collie mix.  He was very shut down when he was dumped in a shelter due to changes in his owners "life circumstances."  He is still very confused and worried, but would love to have a patient home to love him and remind him that life is good.
Bear is a male, 1 year old, 42 lb., neutered Australian Cattle Dog. He is a typical young Heeler, fairly high energy. Bear is learning sit, stay, down, come and drop. He is pretty much a blank slate. Can be fearful at times although that is lessening. He loves and requires exercise. He is not great on a leash yet but is excellent on a bike. We are still working on getting him house broke. But I see a lot of potential in this boy. 
Laney is a 7 year old Catahoula Leopard dog.  She is a lover and if she is exercised enough, she's a great inside dog too! She responds to basic commands and is very sharp. She can be a bit of a raccoon with the garbage, but, most of that is out of boredom. If the garbage is not readily accessible, it's not a problem. is great with kids of all ages (we have a 4 year old and a 1.5 year old). Cats probably aren't a great fit for her...not because she growls and attacks, but, she really wants to chase and play. She gets along with other dogs and LOVES to be outside and run. 
Addie is a 1 year old Australian Cattledog.  She is super friendly with people.  She is a busy girl and ever so smart.  She likes to wrestle with other dogs and would do well with another dog of similar play style.  She is on the smaller side, about 30 lbs.  This girl is super smart and really fun for trick training.
Ann is a 3 year old female Australian Cattledog.  She is very petite.  Ann LOVES people and is a very faithful companion.  She is good with other dogs.
Lacie is a 2 year old Border Collie mix. She is house trained. She is good with other dogs and likes to play with other playful dogs. She is medium energy level and very intelligent. She is picking up on basic obedience commands very quickly. We are training her using clicker training techniques. She really likes toys and cannot get enough of playing tug. She is shy with new people and needs some time to warm up to them before they pet her. She is affectionate once she is comfortable with people. ​ She is pretty good in a crate but occasionally barks when we first ask her to go in. However, she calms down quickly. She has also been good loose in the house and has not displayed any inappropriate chewing etc. Lacie was hit by a car before she came to rescue. She had a laceration repaired on a rear paw and there is some scarring as a result. Since coming to rescue, we found that she also had a broken toe in that paw that was not appropriately treated. We are treating it now and trying to help it heal as best possible. She has some arthritis developed in that paw already. She does seem to do quite well despite the injury and it does not seem to bother her most of the time. She will need some maintenance and care to make sure she does not overdo it. However, we are hopeful that after some treatment she should be able to participate in most normal activities. ​

  Hi, I’m Hannah, a very loving, young shepherd-mix girl with the most gorgeous eyes and beautiful, rich coat coloring! I love to amuse myself with toys or by playing fetch or tug with my human. You can also find me chasing birds out of the backyard — so much fun! My foster family has three dogs that I love to play with, too. I am very comfortable with my foster mom and dad, but tend to initially fear strangers, especially tall males, so my foster mom has me go to my crate and gives me a treat, which helps me immediately relax. I walk well on a leash, but dog parks are too much for me right now. My confidence keeps improving as time goes by in this consistent, supportive environment. I am very proud to say that I do know some commands, such as Sit and Come, and I know how to shake hands! I am looking for a Forever Home that will provide the oving and confidence-building support which my foster home has and a Forever Family to whom to give my loyalty and love! Are you that family?

Rio has some issues with strange dogs and needs an experienced home.  This pretty boy is about 5-6 yrs old and ready for someone to be his best buddy.
Missy is a 2 year old purebred papered Australian cattledog.  She is slightly shy, but wonderfully sweet.  She does have a full tail.  
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.
Tahoe is a big fluffy border collie mix puppy.  He may be mixed with Great Pyrenees.  Super cute pup.
Mystic is likely a Kelpie x heeler mix  About 8 months old. Currently about 30 lbs.  She is gorgeous and ever so sweet.  Good with dogs, cats and kids.  Mystic does have limited vision but with a patient home that doesn't move the furniture often, she will be a once in a lifetime dog.  She makes an awesome office dog that is completely mellow and great with all visitors.  Mystic is spayed and current on vaccinations.
 Gus is a purebred male blue merle aussie. He is about 3 years old.  Gus is very sweet and affectionate with people. I had him groomed and he was the best behaved dog my groomer ever had, he rides good in the car. 
Update: Gus came to us with a plate in one leg, unfortunately, we have found this plate and the bone in his rear leg to be very infected.  Gus will have his leg amputated and will be available for adoption towards the end of April.
Ivanhoe is a 2 year old Bearded Collie/Australian Shepherd mix.  ​He is about 40 lbs.  This super cute guy is a real joy.

Gracie, born May 28, 2014, is a tricolor border collie mix and looking for a family of her own. Gracie loves to play fetch, wrestle with other dogs and enjoys a game of chase.   Even though Gracie would enjoy another confident and playful canine buddy and she would be okay as an only dog. She is curious about cats, however, doesn't bother them and can peacefully co-exist with cats. She is crate and house trained and currently weighs 34 pounds. ​

Colleen is a 2 year old smoothcoat border collie.  She is a friendly, playful girl. Petite, sweet disposition, house trained.  You couldn't ask for much more.  Colleen is very, very sweet and loves people. Her tail is permanently set in happy wag mode unless you are petting her, then her whole body goes still, her eyes half close in ecstasy, and she lets out this little groan of pleasure. She is housetrained and crate trained. She's a quiet girl, very little barking (once when a squirrel was taunting her) and no whining in her crate. She doesn't have much training but is learning new things quickly and easily. She likes food and will work for it but is more motivated by attention. She knows how to walk on a leash and quickly learned to walk both with a no-pull harness and with a gentle leader. She is a bit of a sight seer right now so we are working on not stopping quite so often to sniff and look. Nothing on a walk seems to faze her - no fear of strollers, bikes, skate boards or screaming children. She gets along well with other dogs and doesn't show any inclination to bother the cat. She is an athletic, little girl and could easily do agility or would be a good running companion, but she is not high drive and she will be just as happy as a couch potato if she is spending time with her person. 
I wanted to introduce you to Ranger, our 1 1/2 year old border collie mix. We rescued Ranger when he was 8 weeks old. . At that time we lived in a house with a backyard. Due to unforeseen financial difficulties we had to move into a townhome with no yard. We thought it would be temporary but our financial situation has not changed. Ranger is quite an active dog that needs room to run. He is very protective and constantly barks at anyone that might walk by. At the dog park though, he does not bark and gets along well with other dogs.   My son is unable to play with his friends because of Ranger's behavior so we have been forced to lock Ranger up. He probably should not be in a home with young kids.   Ranger has all his immunizations and has been neutered.
Dublin is a 2 year old female half border collie, half australian shepherd.  She loves, loves, loves people.   We have two boys (12 and 15) and she is good with them as well. She is housetrained and very mellow in the house. She likes to have a bone of some sort to gnaw on. Since we have had her we take her all over the place, so she is now very comfortable riding in cars. We are starting to try walking her around in town more so she can get used to more sights and sounds and seeing other dogs. She is knowledgeable of some basic obedience like sit, down and come. (However, "come" is irrelevant if she's after a rabbit). She does walk very well on a leash. And she is fun to have with you on hikes or cross country skiing (though she has chased after deer and is on the lookout for other things to chase). When it is time to go for a walk she is very excited and does jump a bit on you (I'm working on that). She has been very quick to adjust to being a more inside dog after being an outside dog and she is quickly learning the routine and her manners.  Dublin has a high prey drive and should not be placed in a home with cats, chickens or other small animals.  She would do best in a home without small children.  She can be reactive to some dogs.
Clover is a 2-3 month old malinois mix.  She is super cute.  Malinois are high drive working dogs and should go to experienced homes.
Eva is a 1 year old Australian Cattledog.  She is a stocky 37 lb girl.  She is a fun hiking buddy.  Eva loves the view from above, she would always prefer to be on the crate than in it :)  Eva may have some herding potential.  She would do best in a home without cats.
Stella- Adoption Pending
Stella is a 3 year old Border Collie mix.  She is such a pretty girl.  She is a little shy at first but super sweet once you get to know her.
Frankie Girl
​Frankie is a 2 year old female Australian Cattledog mix.  She is a sweet girl who loves attention from her people.
Hiro is a 1 year old Australian Cattledog mix. He is very devoted to his person.  Hiro is good with dogs.  He would be best in a home without small children or cats.  He is a good hiking buddy.  Hiro is neutered and current on vaccinations.  
Cody is a 2 year old border collie.  He is looking for a new home where he can get more time and attention than his present home.  He is smart and gets along well with little dogs.

Molly, who turned one last Thanksgiving, is 3/4 Australian Shepherd and 1/4 Border Collie. She is good with kids, cats, horses and is learning that other dogs are not really scary. She was born and raised by a big family on a ranch but unfortunately she developed a chicken (or duck) chasing/ killing habit.  Pretty Molly has a beautiful trot and loves running and jumping in tall grasses. She is very agile and curious. She really wants to please and just be a best buddy, right at your side! Molly also has very good voice recall.  Molly is learning about many new things including leash walking. She is housebroken and settles nicely when in the house. She is spayed and is current on rabies.

Kimba is a wonderful 8-year old Australian Shepherd.  He is looking for a new home because his owner is moving out of the country. He can be aggressive towards other dogs. He is an amazing dog in every other way! He is neutered and up to date on vaccinations! He also loves all people and is incredibly bright. He is AKC registered and he has titles in both obedience and agility.
Layla is a 5 year old mixed breed sweetheart.  She is looking for a new home because her owner's fiancé is allergic.  She loves attention.  She is an absolute sweetheart once she is comfortable. Whenever she meets a new person, it typically takes a few times for her to be herself. Layla is extremely healthy.  Layla can be timid in new environments but again, she does warm up to people once she’s around them enough. She does love attention and can be bratty if she doesn’t get enough. The only thing I’ve seen with her bratty behavior is she will eat other animals food and tuperware… She has a strange affinity for tuperware. Again, she only acts out when she’s bored or isn’t getting enough attention.  Layla has lived with dogs and cats before and has always had an easy time with other animals with the exception of one very unruly and invasive 1 yr old puppy.  She never snapped at this dog but I could see the frustration. She absolutely loves the outdoors, loves running and loves toys. She can keep herself entertained for hours throwing her toys around or just running in circles. It’s quite enjoyable to watch her play by herself actually. Layla will follow you around the house and always make sure she knows what you’re doing! 

Pup's owner passed away in December and now he is looking for another forever home.  He is an Australian Shepherd between 8 and 9 years.  He is a big guy, about 70 lbs currently.  He is good with other dogs but will chase cats.
Brownie is a cute mixed breed puppy.
