Four wonderful 3-4 month old Border Collie/Aussie pups have arrived at GHF all ready to go - good natured, friendly, happy and full of curiosity! They are hilarious, like all puppies, eager to see the world. Sweet as can be, they are already showing their personalities and we'll update more as we get to know them better. They came from an Ohio shelter and thanks to the incredible efforts of a few people: Tami Grandia, Julie Shuchman, LuAnn Heller, Heater Gates-Rusher, Kelly Muller, Tony Bove, Joe Bove and Ann Gardner - they safely made it here! We will be looking for homes with canine friends since puppies are happiest with a buddy and it helps handle all their energy needs!


Kelly and Nolan


Kennah and Nye


Little NOLAN happily met his new guardians, sharing his incredibly sweet nature instantly. He's so friendly and so happy, they were thrilled to have him join their lives. Nolan will be the center of attention as his FurMom's constant companion and even get to play with recent GHF adoptee, Shay, who lives close by with a family member! Nolan now lives in NY.

NOLAN is all action, already, looking for something fun to do. He's already showing his fearless nature to lead the other pups and check out everything! A sweet little guy at 17 pounds, he'll need another canine friend for sure! 


Little NYE found a great home with one of former adopters and GHF alum, Demi. His new guardians absolutely loved his sweet nature and knew he'd be perfect to add to their lives. He'll be their constant companion, getting tons of love and enjoy plenty of canine games too. Nye lives in NJ and happily hopped into the car for cuddling and the long drive home.

NYE is super friendly, ready to be the first at your side for attention and love. He is focused and loves to be involved in the action! At 20 pounds, he's typical in size for a 4 month old. 



SOPHIE found exactly the people to understand her! Her new FurMom and FurDad have another BC, Jade, who like Sophie, has some issues that need attention and understanding. They helped Jade gain plenty of confidence in life and now they wanted to help Sophie, too. They were drawn to her sweet face and affectionate nature and knew they could help her learn to trust people more fully and they would enjoy her loving nature themselves. Sophie visited with them at the Farm twice before everyone knew this match would be ideal for all involved and Sophie agreed, happily hopping into the car to head to her new life in NY. She'll have 70 acres for exploring which she loves to do! And, she'll be their constant companion.

SOPHIE: A very petite 9 month old Border Collie, Sophie is a gorgeous little girl who needs time to learn how to be in the real world and feel safe. She is great with her person and bonds fast and she's very loving. She's also adorable as she plays with toys and leaps on your lap to be by your side, happy to nestle next to you. She is super sweet. However, Sophie was not socialized properly so is very nervous meeting new people and new dogs and will bark and panic, either hiding or lunging at what scares her. She will also nip when pressured. She will only be adopted into a home with a very skilled BC savvy person who can take her step by step into the big world so she succeeds. She requires positive training and step by step introductions to people she doesn't know. It could take months to help Sophie readjust or years- there is no way to know but she is young, super smart and very eager to learn plus she is a 'soft' BC so wants to do what is right, once she knows what that is.  Food motivated, Sophie is very responsive.   Sophie does well with other dogs and likes to play. She is a tiny little girl, only about 20 pounds and fine with cats. She lived in a NY home with 5 children and is great with kids.  She was not properly socialized to a lot of situations, instead, sheltered in the home.


MAGGIE found a great life with another BC - Tip - who loves to make up chase games just like she does! The two of them were fast friends, wrestling and rolling around and chasing outside, absolutely great to see. Maggie will enjoy 14 acres to call her own and be the constant companion to her new guardians who just fell in love with her! She now lives in PA.

MAGGIE: A 2 year old Border Collie, Maggie is very thoughtful, watching everything around her as she gets comfortable. Once she understands how things work, she is a blast. She loves toys of any kind and loves to play with the other dogs at the Farm. Her roommate, Hunter, and she play constantly so we'd like to make sure Maggie has a friend in her next home. Maggie is easy going, not overly intense but definitely needs an outlet for her energy with play. She's a loving girl with a great temperament who is very much the classic BC! Maggie is about 40 pounds and good with cats. She came from an elderly PA guardian who felt she needed more than they could give her. She lived in one home since a pup. 



ZOE now has a great life that suits her - living with a loving family AND doing agility! Her new guardians felt they could help her with her worries about men and they have, working regularly with a trainer and patiently guiding her step by step, to trust again.

She is about 35 pounds and fine with cats. She came to the Farm from a NY guardian who could not meet her needs. 



KELLY found a great life with her very own farm on 120 acres and we're sure she'll enjoy ALL of it. This little girl with the curious nature will be the center of attention, accompanying her new guardians each and every day. They absolutely loved that face online and had to come right away to meet her. Of course, in person, she plopped her rump down in front of them as if to say - ok, let's go! Kelly now lives in upstate NY busy with lots to watch over!

KELLY is a thinker, checking out everything around her and then deciding to go into action! Friendly and sweet, she is gorgeous! She is about 16 pounds, typical in size for a 3 month old pup.

Celt now lives in upstate NY where his great new life is about to begin!!

She absolutely loves retrieving tennis balls and also frisbee. Lena is a fast runner and a focused girl, happy to have a person for lots of play. She is so smart and very responsive to learning so could be fun in sports or any activity she was taught. Lena has great recall and is a good hiking buddy, too.  Lena is best with dog savvy cats.  She would do best with another submissive BC that was male or as a solo dog. She has been given up from NY guardians who could not mix her with their dogs when they inherited her due to a death. 



JAKE found exactly the right person for him, someone who understands all his playful curiosity and innocent puppy like manners, boldly exploring anything and everything. His new FurDad spent the night with him in the adoption RV and the two of them were clearly a great match. Jake was one happy boy! And, his new guardian was thrilled to find him. He'll be his constant companion at his art studio where we're sure Jake will help out! He now lives in NH.

JAKE: A 5 year old Border Collie, Jake is a character. He's full of excitement to say hello to everyone and anyone with a big bold jump up and kisses. He keeps everyone laughing!

He's not showing much herding instinct, more focused on a person and cuddling and attention. He is very loving and sensitive, eager to please.

He has not lived in a house but is perfectly housetrained, doesn't chew on anything and is very calm when inside. He and Anney, were a pair of BC's used for breeding by a NY breeder who replaced them with younger dogs. Fortunately, they are both here and are great dogs.

KENNAH was the last pup to find her place far from where she started - she's now living in PA, the constant companion to her guardians who fell instantly for her.

YIPPEEEEE FOR JODI-BUG!!!! She found just the right place and just the right people who not only adore her but understand her! She'll be the constant companion to her FurMom and join her BC buddy, Magic, to learn the ropes of her new life. Jodi's charming 'high-five' tricks kept them chuckling while she of course showed her affectionate side too....exactly what they were looking for! And, they understand that, at times, Jodi's skittish nature can pop up so she'll need reassurance. Jodi will have so much fun, racing on the beaches of Cape Cod and enjoying hikes all the time, which she absolutely loves. We're all so thrilled that Jodi is all set in her forever home and know she'll charm them beyond what they can imagine! We'll miss the little Bug who made us all chuckle, too. Jodi was in rescue for almost two years while she needed the time to get a real understanding of life and we knew this day would come where she'd put everything together for a very special adopter! Many thanks to everyone who helped Jodi find her way!!!!

JODI: A 3 1/2 year old Border Collie, Jodi is having a great time at the Farm, free from the life of breeding. She is a gentle, shy girl who is now racing around playing with other rescue dogs at the farm, really learning that life is good. Jodi captures your heart quickly as she snuggles up for attention and then darts away to check on something of interest. We affectionately call her "Jodi Bug!" and she races over to say hello.  However, Jodi is a skittish Border Collie so will only be placed in a fenced situation without children.  She feels nervous with new people and chaos so needs a quiet home setting with another canine friend, preferably a male.  Jodi can scale our 5 foot fences easily as well as jump through windows and on top of 4 foot high crates so she'll need an invisible fence to contain her safely or someone who always goes outside with her.  She is about 35 pounds and good with cats. Jodi, came with Dessie , both abandoned at a PA shelter which fortunately works with GHF 

Jodi has charmed us all at the Farm with her little 'paw' mannerism where she says hello and does her Jodi wave, pawing in the air and then on your arm for attention - quite the charmer she is! Dancing Jodi - watch her video here

We are so excited for HAYDEN who found his new life a year after he came to GHF. He needed time to understand the real world and learn all the great things about people so he could be ready for this big day! And, ready he was....he played frisbee with his new guardian and went for a great hike off leash, joining GHF alum, Bud, for tons of BC fun! Hayden loved having a young girl to call his own and cuddled next to her, happily on the couch. His Foster Mom smiled with tears of happiness as she watched Hayden bravely join his new guardians. It's a very very special moment to see a young dog mature into a stable, happy BC who knows that life is his to enjoy, rather than be abandoned and neglected. We are thrilled! Hayden now lives in NH.

HAYDEN: A 2 year old Border Collie, Hayden is having a blast learning that life is about running, playing and enjoying dogs and people. He came to the Farm as a very shy, under-socialized dog and has really blossomed. He likes to be involved with other Border Collies and really follows the lead of a more confident dog which is great.

Otherwise, he's a bit timid. Gradie is now a super happy guy who is excited to go outside and follow his fellow BC friends and meet all of us who care for him. He's transformed dramatically into a more outgoing guy. Gradie is very good with other dogs though does best with soft, submissive female BC's who he can pal around with to explore.

He came from a PA guardian who abandoned him a shelter.

CARVER makes history! Our first adopted Texas Border Collie found his way to a new life! His new guardians were charmed the minute they spent time getting to know him.
