KODA found her forever
home with an aussie friend who had her running, chasing and galloping at
the fastest speeds around the farm instantly (no matter the rain!)...they
were clearly pals as soon as they met. Her loving guardians enjoyed the
action and plan to focus all her energy into agility and a lifetime of fun
and play, as well as loving her sweet nature, especially since Koda is
truly a lap dog who wants to be a constant companion, which she will be!
Koda now lives in PA.
KODA: A 2 yr old merle Border
Collie/Aussie mix, Koda is not only gorgeous, she is a sweet, friendly
girl who is very willing to please and loves being with people. Koda will
say hello to anyone and everyone she meets! She also loves playing ball
games and is wonderful with other dogs, racing, chasing and making up
herding games. Koda will only be placed in a home with other dogs since
she absolutely loves playing and needs the activity. Koda is very smart and will benefit from an activity that
engages her such as agility since she is very energetic. She is about 50
pounds, a bit broader than the typical Border Collie, more like an aussie.
Koda is good with cats and has been trained on the electric fence. She
was relinquished from upstate NY from guardians unable to meet her needs.
IZZY found his forever
home with loving guardians who were quickly charmed by his good nature and
sweet ways and he happily hopped up on the couch for tummy rubs and
kisses. He clearly loved them and they, him, so off Izzy went to his new
life in NY where he'll never have to worry about another meal again or
love...he will surely be adored.
IZZY is a 3 1/2 year
old male border collie mix. He is super sweet and gentle, content to be
with anyone and everyone, a real friendly happy go lucky dog. Izzy is
incredibly sweet and adores people so could be a good therapy dog
candidate. Izzy takes
pretty much everything in stride, enjoying life! He is about 40 pounds and
is good with cats. Izzy is an amazing dog, especially when you
understand his history. He was so near death from starvation, that he
could not even eat at first at the shelter. He had been tied out on a
three foot chain and was eating rocks to survive. After time at the
shelter and at a boarding facility while we waited for a spot to open,
Izzy gained weight and his wonderful good nature returned, almost like
seeing a smiling dog for sure. He is an exceptionally kind hearted boy. He
came from a PA shelter who works with the Farm.
JESSIE found her
forever home with loving guardians who were so happy to have her join
their lives and just showered her with love, cuddling and kisses. She
hopped up on the couch next to them and relished in all the attention,
content to be with her new people. Both mother and daughter headed home
head over heels in love with their beloved girl! Jessie now lives in
upstate NY and will be the center of attention for sure.
A 4 year old Borer Collie, Jessie is a very loving girl who adores people
and really wants to be connected to a person. She also loves to race and
run and herd other dogs in particular. She would also be a wonderful
hiking companion, she loves to walk in the woods. Jessie is good natured
and easy going, energetic when with other dogs but relaxes easily with her
person. She is good with cats and weighs about 40 pounds. Jessie
lived with an elderly guardian who had to move to an apartment so
relinquished her to a shelter in NY.
SEAMUS found his
forever home with a loving family who were smitten by his wonderful good
nature and incredible ball focus...sure to be a fun family dog! Plus,
since they live on a lake, Seamus will have lots of fun swimming which he
is crazy about, especially fetching sticks. Seamus bonded quickly with his
new kids and happily headed out to his new life in upstate NY.

absolutely in love with ball games. He is intensely focused on his ball
and will happily return time and again for a good throw. Seamus is a
wonderful gentleman, very very well trained with a perfect lay down, sit,
away and leave it. He is one of the easiest companions to be around and so
willing to please. Seamus is in excellent health and has been adored his
whole life, living in one home. He quickly adjusted to the Farm, racing
and joining in with the herding games of a crowd of 18 dogs. To understand
the uniqueness of Seamus - his good nature and athletic abilities - just
imagine a 6 year old Border Collie and that will come pretty close to him.
He loves to relax once inside and truly enjoys being with his person,
rather than alone. Seamus is good with cats, fine in the car and great on
leash. He was surrendered to the Farm due to the addition of three young
children who were way too physical for him, leaning on him, pulling his
tail and all the things that make most Border Collies miserable so his
guardians felt he would enjoy a calmer life. He is adjusting to the
changes with ease. Seamus came from a home in NJ. Seamus
is being fostered in NY, near the Farm and enjoying an outdoor life of fun
DAISY found her
forever home where she can play tons of frisbee, enjoy lots of time hiking
on trails and swimming, too...a perfect life for her plus she'll be the
center of attention to her new loving guardians who love this breed. She

way right into her heart. Daisy now lives in upstate NY.

Border Collie with ABCA papers, Daisy is an incredible sport dog and loves

electronic fence. She is about 40 pounds. She
is part of the 25 dogs surrendered to the farm from a guardian in PA who

Kiri found her forever home
through our site when a wonderful guardian fell in love with her! She will
now live in Canada.
Kiri is 5 1/2yrs old, bright-eyed, and as smart as she is
sweet. A year ago, Kiri was hit by a car and very nearly
killed, but was dragged from the road and after many months of
recuperation and rehab, Kiri is back. Her tail is gone
now, and the damage to her nervous system has deprived her of the use
of her hind legs, but she does not seem to mind. She loves
to play ball and plays chase games with other dogs even now that
she's wheelchair-bound, and will do just about anything you want her to if
you give her something to eat. She is also a great hiker, an
excellent herder, and is very good on a leash. She is
incredibly gentle and patient with kids, and loves almost all humans
and dogs but chases cats pretty compulsively. Kiri has both
bladder and bowel control, but it is limited; she will let you know she
needs to go out, but she can't wait long. She has all of her
shots up to date and! is on no special meds, but eats a special
food that is gentle on her digestion, which can be a problem when
Kiri is anxious. Kiri's family has a special-needs teenager in
it too, and only one parent, who works long hours and cannot be available
enough of the time to keep Kiri on her much-needed daily schedule.
All Kiri really needs is a home where she can be outside a lot, and where
the people who love her are around during the day.

people oriented with being very work oriented. Jaime would love being with

happy in a home with an active lifestyle. He is about 45 pounds, typical
in size for the breed. He is good with cats. Jaime came from
a breeder who worked with Jaime in sheep trials but found him to be too
strong minded so gave him up. He originally came from VA and then
was given to someone in MA who gave him to the Farm. Jaime is
being fostered in NJ and can be seen at the Farm.

people and loves the company of other dogs but will herd the cats so needs
dog savvy cats. He does better with older children since he is focused for
his work/fun. James was given up due to a move to a small home
where his needs could not be met.
VALENTINE won the
hearts of her new guardians quickly because of her gorgeous looks, great

the Farm fell in love with Val and off she went to her new life, joining
three other Border Collies from the Farm to round out their gang of six!

to do. Valentine loves cuddling as much as she loves toy play. She is a
soccer ball fanatic, absolutely in love with chasing the ball and pushing
it all around the fields. She loves the water and will happily go in
for a swim. Valentine could be an ambassador for border

with cats. She is one of 25 dogs surrendered to the Farm from a
guardian in PA who had personal troubles.

home by getting sick - through a rough bout with flu which led to

rest is history. Nick's gentle, sweet nature sick or healthy, made him a

own farm with two dog friends and loving guardians who adore the breed.
And, we'll get to see Nick frequently when he comes back to visit us!

give her all the attention she deserves. Within moments, the ball was in
action and the frisbee was flying and April was the happiest dog at the
Farm. April hopped in the car and headed out to her new life in NJ where
she'll even get to try agility.
APRIL: A 5 year old Border Collie with
ABCA papers, April is incredibly athletic and seriously driven for any toy
game around. She is superb with a soccer ball, remarkable with ball
retrieval and fast as can be. April is also wonderfully sweet and friendly
and great with everyone she meets. She would do best in a home devoted to
activities and she would certainly excel. She is a confident dog and fits
in with numerous dogs easily, always focused on her person. She is keen,
intelligent and ready to play, play, play, a classic high drive Border
Collie. Fairly small, April would excel in any canine sport. She is about

perfect home with another border collie from the farm, Brewster, who she
loved playing with and also shares the same focus for tennis balls! Sofia
and Brewster headed out for a trail walk, a swim and fast racing in the
fields much like what she'll be doing in her new home in Vermont. She'll
be the constant companion to her guardian who is a nature photographer,
plus Sofia will get to do agility and lots of other sports.

Collie who loves to run and chase and make up herding games. She is very
very fast and agile and would be fantastic in agility. She is an intensely
driven, high energy Border Collie so will only be adopted into a seasoned
BC home. Sofia also loves to play with other dogs and happily plays with
other young Border Collies, instantly on the same wavelength. She is
a wizard with soccer balls, absolutely the best goalie in town, pushing
the ball with speed and control like a great player! She loves the
water and will happily go in for a swim. Sofia is also very
sweet and eager to be with people. She will need another young herding dog
to match her energy, like most young BC's. She is good with cats and is
about 35 pounds. Sofia was relinquished to the farm from a CT
guardian who felt they could not meet her needs.
SKEE quickly found the
family that would understand his need for racing, chasing and playing, all
the high intensity traits of the breed but also loved the cuddly, warm
sweet guy who charmed them with his good natured ways. Skee happily joined
them for the ride home in NY where he will be adored.
SKEE, A 1 year old Border Collie, Skee
is all action, a ballet in motion, herding and circling and racing and
chasing. A classic young Border Collie, he will thrive in a very active
home, ideally with another young border collie. He could be a terrific
sport candidate since he is super agile, very fast to learn and a more
petite dog so very quick. Skee is wonderful with people, loves everyone
and does well off leash, too, never leaving your side. He is also quite
cuddly when the action is over. We want to place Skee in a seasoned Border
Collie home due to his mental and physical needs. He is about 30 pounds,
fairly petite and not good with cats. Skee was relinquished to the
Farm from NJ where his guardians could not handle his energy level or
EVE found her forever
home with one of our adopters who offered to foster her and quickly fell
in love. She has two Border Collies, one from the farm, Kasey (pictured),
also a special health case who she nursed back from a severe car accident.
She met him as a vet tech when we took him to Cornell. So, when she read
about Eve, she felt certain she had the skills to care for her and provide
a wonderful, active, fun Border Collie home. Eve now is part of a lively
trio, herding, chasing balls and sleeping in her new person's bed,
cuddling with all her sweetness. We are thrilled for Eve and know she is
in good hands living in upstate NY.
A 1 year old Border Collie, Eve is a live wire, absolutely loves to play
what we call 2-ball, where she has one ball in her mouth and controls the
another ball simultaneously with her paws - sort of an on the ground
juggling act! She is great with all dogs and loves to play so will be
placed with another young dog, preferably a Border Collie since she would
do best playing herding and ball games. When she is with other Border
Collies with a similar ball focus, they entertain each other endlessly.
Eve is very very sweet, loves to cuddle and have her belly rubbed plus she
quickly bonds with people. She can be a bit hesitant with men but with
treats, she will adjust fairly quickly. Eve is good with cats though will
charge them so will do best with dog savvy cats. She is about 30
Eve has an
amazing story of a unique eating disorder known as megaesophagus which
means she can have trouble swallowing so needs to eat literally perched
with her front feet on a chair, then all is well. She had heart valve surgery because it was a valve that pressed on
the esophagus that caused the problem initially. The surgery went
beautifully and Eve can now consume meals happily.

perfect forever home with another sweet spirited furry friend and two
guardians who were wildly smitten with her charming ways and loved playing
serious ball with her in the fields, too. They wanted an athlete for all
their outdoor activities plus to do agility so Dazee finally found the

lives in Maine and will spend lots of time hiking, skiing, running and of
course, playing, all of which she certainly wants to do.

disjointed knee that prevented her from using one of her back legs. She
underwent surgery to improve her leg though she will not regain full
extension of the back leg, using it more for balancing. Of course, being a
border collie, it doesn't slow her down one bit ! Cricket loves the water
and will even put her entire head underwater! Cricket is one of the
most delightful girls to come into rescue and will be a marvelous
companion for someone and other dogs. She is one of 25 dogs
surrendered to the Farm from a guardian in PA who had personal troubles. Cricket

sweet, nudging your arm for attention yet happy to relax when you are
busy. Patches is very very smart and a great toy dog. He is also good with
cats and has been trained on the electronic fence. He could live as the solo dog or with others who understand he is
the lead. Patches is carrying extra weight which will come off easily at
the Farm since he'll be more active again. He is part of the 25 dogs

too. He is very sweet and very very smart, clearly a good candidate for

with humans and toys. Corey is about 35 pounds, not yet tested on cats. He
was surrendered to a shelter in PA that fortunately works with the Farm
and contacted us to take him.
KIRI found her forever
home finally! with adopters and friends of the farm that we know well who
will provide her with a home for life. They picked her up from Montana
when the previous adopter who lived in Canada felt it was too much work
after a week of trying to make a go of it. Joyce and Mike, who have three
wheelchair dogs already and run Pets with Disabilities were compelled to
help Kiri. She actually lived only an hour from them in Maryland before
being flown to Canada! They were vacationing out west and connected with
another adopter of ours (who moved there long ago) who volunteered to
drive her from the border to them. A special thanks to Loreli and Mike
Murray and Mona and Kurt Johnson who linked together to get Kiri into
loving hands. A special thanks to Helene Lawler who asked Mona to help.
This was quite a coordination of caring people to make sure that Kiri
could return to the states. Clearly, Kiri is very very happy now with
new furry friends and her loving guardians feel she is a very special girl
who quickly captured their hearts. We are inspired by the grace and love
that Joyce and Mike have for dogs in need. Please visit their site, www.petswithdisabilities.org

more easily! We'll be spending time with Kiri and her new family at
camp this week while she enjoys all the activities at the Farm.

legs, but she does not seem to mind. She loves to play ball and plays
chase games with other dogs even now that she's wheelchair-bound, and will
do just about anything you want her to if you give her something to eat.

leash. She is incredibly gentle and patient with kids, and loves almost
all humans and dogs but chases cats pretty compulsively. Kiri has both
bladder and bowel control, but it is limited; she will let you know she
needs to go out, but she can't wait long. She has all of her shots up to
date and! is on no special meds, but eats a special food that is gentle on
her digestion, which can be a problem when Kiri is anxious. All Kiri
really needs is a home where she can be outside a lot, and where the
people who love her are around during the day.
MERL found his forever
home during the Canine Country Camp when a camper's dog and he began to
play and play and play and play and then of course, she fell in love with
him, too. He spent a night in the tent and clearly won her heart. The day
she was leaving camp, he literally sat on her leash to send his own
personal message of what he wanted and then sat at the gate watching her
go. We had asked her to go home without him to be sure it wasn't just the
emotion of camp. So, she headed home from camp and turned around a day
later to come back and get him. Both she and her dog, Milo, were sad
without him. Merl was incredibly happy to see her and trotted out the gate
as if he had been patiently waiting for her all his life. He now lives in
MA where he'll have lots of land for running and playing plus swimming and
all the herding games he and his new friend can create. He will surely be

saying hello to everyone and at camp this summer, he is the most popular
dog. Merl is very very good natured, not overly active but loves to race
with other dogs and wrestle and play. He would be very happy with another
dog friend as well as lots of people around for interaction. He is great

interested in cats and curious so needs dog savvy cats living with him. He
is 45 pounds, typical in size for the breed. Merl is a delightful Border

affectionate, energetic, fast, and bright eyed. She gets along well with
Border Collies, since they are on the same wavelength, especially
submissive males. She lived with another Border Collie and could again, or
could enjoy life as a solo dog with all the attention. She is a delightful
companion. Molie is very people oriented with a great desire to please.
She is well trained, knows all the basic commands, has a great recall and
is a very fast learner. She has been territorial with a neighbor's dog so
will need a hard fence. Molie was very well loved in her home and
they are heartbroken over losing her. She came from the Pittsburgh area.
BUDY won the heart of
his new guardian almost instantly when she came through the gate and he
gave her a warm, loving hello. Budy then proceeded to show off his great
ball skills and toy play which delighted her to no end, reminding her of
the years with her former beloved border collie. After meeting a few dogs,
Budy stayed at the top of the list and he clearly felt that way about her,
too. Budy now lives in upstate NY where he'll be adored forever!!
An 8 year old Border Collie, Budy is a very intelligent, thoughtful dog
who wants to be a close companion to his person. He is very friendly in
meeting anyone and easy going in new situations, coming right to the Farm,
for example, mixing in with lots of dogs and saying hello to all the
people at the recent seminar. Budy enjoys being with people and would be
best where someone was around most of the time so he can share his
affection. He is very loving and also great with other dogs. He also loves
the Jolly Ball and will carry it around, throwing it in the air, creating
his own fun! Budy previously lived with a sheltie but could easily live on
his own as the solo dog or with a more submissive dog since he likes his
own space rather than the rough play of young dogs. He is good with cats.
Budy is carrying some extra weight since his access to exercise changed
with illnesses in the family who previously had him. Budy was close to the
family members who died a few months ago and the family no longer felt
they had time to meet his needs. He was relinquished to the farm
