Patch is puppy that’s looking for a home that can keep up with a Cattle Dog! Patch was surrendered to EHDR after not quite fitting into the farm lifestyle of her first home. She is looking for her perfect partners in crime.
Patch has all the typical traits of the breed. She is intelligent, energetic and ready for action. She gets along well with people and other dogs though her play style can be a little overwhelming for calmer dogs since she loves to run and wrestle. She has been working on housebreaking, crate training and riding in cars. She has a great recall and currently lives on a ranch. She is doing well with these but still has lots to learn. She would benefit greatly from puppy classes and we bet she would be good at any dog sports!
Patch is up to date on her vaccines, microchipped, and has received her dewormer. She is spayed and available to go to her forever home. If interested, please submit an application to

About Eastern Herding Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Eastern Herding Dog Rescue is a small but mighty group that was founded in 2014 in Richmond, VA as the brainchild of Ashley Castro. A longtime lover of all things herding dog, she had been involved in Border Collie rescue since 2007 and general rescue since 2004 and helped rehome many canine companions. She made a plan to help her favorite group of dogs find their place in the world with the people that love them. Lucky for her she had some like-minded friends, and together they opened their hearts and homes to herding dogs in need.

We strive to set ourselves apart. Our foster homes are all trained in basic canine behavior and training techniques to properly rehabilitate our dogs and prepare them for their new homes. All of our foster homes use positive reinforcement training techniques to train our dogs and have firsthand experience with herding breeds. We have a behaviorist we partner with to assess our dogs, we enroll them in manners classes, and we appropriately socialize them in real world situations. We conduct phone and face to face interviews and meet and greets with potential adopters to ensure that the dog they're interested in is the perfect match and vice versa! We know our dogs best and want to adopt out the best dogs!

Our Adoption Process...

We require an application be filled out by anyone interested in meeting or adopting one of our dogs. We will conduct a reference check, veterinary check, and home visit before adoption takes place.

Our adoption fees for dogs are:
Under 6 months: $300
7 months - 8 years: $250
9+ years: $200

Our adoption fee for adult dogs covers microchipping, vaccinations, heartworm test, flea/tick treatment, and any existing medical issues the dog needed treatment for. For puppies under 6 months an additional $50 is charged which covers a spay/neuter deposit. This will be paid toward the vet of your choosing for the procedure or will be paid to Prevent a Litter if you are located in Richmond, VA. We cover the puppy shots up until adoption.
