Beautiful little Lizzie was preoccupied for her adoption photo but surely showed her cuddly nature when she met her new guardians. She was also pretty fascinated by her part-time BC friend, Pogo, who visits often so these two will have plenty to do together. For Lizzie, her full-time life will include tons of love in her new home and even a beach house and Florida home so she's one lucky girl who will be busily meeting lots of people and playing til her heart is content. She now lives in NJ.

LIZZIE: A petite 7 month old Border Collie, little Lizzie is a gem. She is all about a big hello and a big run for fun! She loves to play and learn and try new things.

TYE found the perfect guardians who would understand his shy nature and help him blossom with time. They knew he was the right furry friend to add to their lives and knew they could offer him exactly what he needs. He and his new canine friend, Molly, hit it off just fine which helped his new people know that he was exactly what they wanted to add to their lives. Tye now lives in VA where he'll discover a loving life where he is totally adored. A special thanks to Kristen Browne who opened her heart and home to Tye to help him know that love was his to have.

TYEA 1 year old Border Collie, Tye is a sweet guy who is making great strides understanding life in a home.  He is incredibly sweet with people and  having fun playing with his BC friend though he can be nervous with new people if approached too strongly.   He is such a character, leaning into your legs, eager to curl up for attention, a real love bug but Tye really does best with his person to give him confidence and takes awhile to learn the lay of the land in anything new. He will be placed only with another young BC so he'll have canine companionship and in a BC savvy adult home.  He will be do best in a fairly quiet home though he does love the action of the farm animals in his foster home. Tye will only be placed in a hard fence not an underground fence system.  Tye came from Tn with the dogs confiscated from a breeder. Tye is in foster care in Rochester NY



SERA found the perfect life where she'll be loved for who she is, a bit shy and sweet AND she'll get to do what she loves to do - herd! Sera will enjoy plenty of herding experiences with her FurDad who really wanted a BC who would learn herding with him. She has two canine friends, one from the farm (not in the picture) so she'll have plenty to herd at home besides the woolies! Sera now lives in MA and we bet she'll be the star in her herding endeavors. 

SERA: A 4 year old Border Collie, Sera is a lovely, sweetheart, a real cuddler. She is very people oriented and loves to be connected with her person.  She also enjoys life in her foster home, happy and content to cuddle up inside.  She is quite a herder and clearly wants to handle the movement of other dogs or sheep, in perfect position.  Sera could potentially work sheep but will need formal training. She could, however,  easily enjoy life as a companion, hanging with canine friends plus she loves toys now and is really enjoying play time.   She is about 35 pounds and is OK with cats dog savvy cats. Sera came from TN with the dogs confiscated from a breeder.





STAN found the perfect life where he would be understood as the smart, talented, working boy he is...he kept a sharp eye on the other dogs at that Farm as he met his new people, showing them that he would keep alert, on duty at their home, too. Stan will enjoy his own sheep and cows in his new life plus the farm 'walk' with his new guardian who oversees how life at the Farm unfolds, which is exactly what Stan will love. He'll accompany him each day for a look at the property, keeping things in check. Stan will love that job where he's the man to count on and we know that his new  people will find that Stan's brilliance is obvious. Stan found our favorite adopters who once had a beloved GHF alum who presided over her people and property just as Stan now will. We were really touched that Stan, our special beloved rescue, ended up stepping into the footsteps of another GHF alum who we absolutely adored. We are certain that Stan will win the hearts of everyone he meets, just as Samantha did. He now lives in MA.

STAN: An 8 year old Border Collie, Stan is one of the sweetest, most gentle Border Collies we've ever had in rescue. He loves to be with you and enjoys going anywhere you go. He's quite the cuddler and happy to enjoy many belly rubs.  He is smart and focused and loves his new life with toys, always carrying something around in his mouth as he heads out the door to herd the other dogs.  Stan has quite the eye to herd and also now can see beautifully. (His eye condition was treated when he came into rescue)  He is smart as a whip and one wonderful, good natured, quintessential Border Collie, calm and focused.  Stan enjoys being with his daughter, Kellie, but could easily love life as the only dog.  He would love being a constant companion to his person. 

Recently, living on a chain, basically unable to see, Stan THANKFULLY found a new life when the Animal Control Officer contacted us asking for help. One of our colleagues kindly got involved and helped get Stan to us. The GREAT news is that Stan's eye condition - pannus - is totally treatable... it's  a very common condition in Border Collies. He is now on eye drops, which he'll need for life.  We are so thrilled with this great news.  Stan is good with cats and weighs about 40 pounds.  




TILLIE found the perfect life with another BC just like her who she loved instantly and a new guardian who will give her plenty to enjoy - herding, agility, dock diving and lots of acreage for play, play, play, Border Collie style! She's got the ideal life for any young BC to blossom and so many avenues to explore, we know we'll hear lots of great things ahead.

MAC found a wonderful new life on a 1000 acre farm where he'll have plenty to watch and do, involved in all that goes on. But, for him, most importantly, he'll get to play tons of ball and try agility, along with his new BC buddy, Mako who is like his mental twin, both totally focused boys. Mac's new guardians were charmed by his friendly nature and quickly understood his needs. They met lots of other dogs but landed on Mac as the perfect fit for them and Mac agreed!

He's a sweet guy, too, happy to be with his person and very responsive to anyone who will play with him or spend time with him.

He'll then play with his BC friend when the ball is not in play. He's about 50 pounds and trained on the Invisible Fence. He is great with cats. Mac lived in one home since a pup as a family dog but would be best in an adult home. He was relinquished to the farm from his PA guardian. 




RUBIE found the perfect life where she'll have a BC friend, Gin, who loves the ball like she does and can play endlessly but even more, she'll have a job. Rubie will be chasing geese! On her first visit with geese, she was very interested and will no doubt, shine as she switches from ball 'work' to chasing and herding...Rubie is one intense girl so this suits her just fine. No matter how many people met Rubie over the last few weeks, they all loved her but felt she was just too much until today, when her new guardian saw her and burst out laughing - "she's wonderful! she's got a lot on her mind and will be fabulous!" Clearly, Rubie found her person and her new life! She now lives in NY and will be a very happy, busy Border Collie. Special thanks to Mary Liebau who masterminded this match.

She loves the water and is an above average swimmer and can jump six to eight feet out over the water when running to retrieve a thrown toy.Bebee loves people and is happy to say hello to everyone and anyone.  She's very smart and outgoing and loves to investigate all that is around her.  She is curious and will check out new areas thoroughly as she enters them.  She likes to swim and when she does, she enters the water daintily to retrieve a thrown toy, sometimes keeping her back completely dry.  She loves attention and will cuddle up to you and give you kisses as you pet her or scratch behind her ears.  She and her friend, Bebee, play endlessly together and will be placed together.  Both girls are about 40 pounds and OK with dog savvy cats. Shelbie & Bebee came from CT due to a job change that brings foster children into the home.



GRACIE found just the right life where she'll be the center of attention, enjoying the constant companionship of her new guardians. Plus, Gracie's favorite activity - chasing birds - will be easy since she'll go the beach regularly for walks and play plus she might even help move some geese off a nearby park, just for fun.

He is smart and focused and a classic BC, bonding instantly to the person who connects him to what he loves - the ball. He is also a sweet guy, happy to join in activities around him. He is fine with other dogs but would clearly be happiest with a human partner who is active and ready to 'work' - play! Max is the type of Border Collie who wants to accompany someone in their day, hiking, playing ball and enjoying life as their companion. He is a wonderful dog. He is fine with cats and about 40 pounds. He was relinquished to the Farm due to no time for his needs and the three small dachshunds were overwhelmed by his energy. He lived in one home since a pup. 




FABLE & ARTIE will now be friends for life! They met at the Farm and clicked instantly, playing and racing and chasing in the same style and clearly, best buds. Luckily, just the right guardians came looking for a pair of BC's and felt these two would fit their lives perfectly. They overnighted in the nearby Inn and both Fable and Artie clearly made themselves at home, happy as could be, content with each other and them. They will have a wonderful life on 20 acres with lots to do and explore and be the constant companion to their new guardians and grandkids when they visit. They now live in Mass. We're just thrilled for them both because they clearly have a love affair going with each other and now have a family that loves them both.

Little LEAI is about to have a big life doing lots of agility and hanging with her new FurMom who fell in love online and then again, when she met her.

DOLLY found her new life with guardians who had actually seen her listing at the shelter and wanted to meet her then so when they found out she was at the Farm, they headed up to see her. She joined in with her new canine friend, Reece, with some serious chase games as they enjoyed the fields while her new guardians laughed, happy to see both dogs engaged in the play they were hoping for.

Miss Mollie has found her home, an unusual route to take but her journey led her right where she needed to be. The parents of the vet student who fostered Mollie spent time getting to know her as the family got together during the past months. And, no surprise to most of us, Mollie grabbed their hearts and wouldn't let go. As her new guardians said, 'if they couldn't keep her, the family was headed across the Canadian border'...they just couldn't imagine letting her go. So, Mollie officially joins GHF alum, Summit and another canine friend and a whole family who are thrilled she's there to stay! We are incredibly happy for Mollie and know that the love she has in her life ahead will keep her strong, no matter what challenges she faces. A big thank you again to Jennifer and Adrian who fostered her for a great recovery. 

And, a huge thanks to all of you who sent money to help with her care. We were incredibly touched by the kindness of everyone who wanted to help Mollie, just as we did. The costs for her intensive care needs were the highest ever encountered yet there was never any way we could turn away from Mollie's needs. And, today, we know that deep caring will continue for this very special Border Collie.

MOLLIE: A 9 month old Border Collie, Mollie is brilliant. She listens attentively and instantly, thinking through everything around her and then deciding what she will do. You can see her mind problem solving and watch her find her own answers carefully with all the style of a mature BC though she is a pup. Mollie will thrive with someone who really wants to challenge her mentally and provides her an opportunity to work. She is fairly petite, fast and focused and eager to play with toys, even entertaining herself. She is also non-stop energy, typical of this age and will only go to a home that is BC savvy and has an outlet for her mind and body. Mollie will give you her heart though, she is quite affectionate and loves everyone she meets instantly. She is now learning about other Border Collies and gaining confidence with the dogs around that think and act just like she does. She came from a home with a sedate older dog so all the dogs are new to her. She has a wonderful temperament and could excel in a close relationship with a person. Mollie is from a breeder in VA bought by the son of a woman who then inherited Mollie when he was deployed. Though she loved her dearly, she could not meet her energy needs. Mollie needs a real job, like all young high-drive Border Collies or she'll make her own. Mollie is 35 pounds and good with cats.

WYNN: A petite 9 month old Border Collie, Wynn is a sweet girl, who loves people and being in the middle of fun, whether it's canine fun or people fun, she's delightful. She is eager to connect to someone and will benefit from a connection with someone to teach her new games and things to learn. Wynn is very sweet and loves attention. She is great with other dogs and would benefit from another canine friend. She is not high energy like some BC's, but can be mouthy as a young pup so best with older kids or an adult home for now. She is the sister of Willis, who was most recently in rescue and adopted. She is 35 pounds and good with cats.  She came from a breeder who didn't want her. 



BONNIE found the perfect life with GHF alum, Bannin and new guardians who love this breed and all the action!

Certain dogs have angels on their shoulders...sometimes that is what gets them here to begin with; other times that is what saves their lives. Jakey found a caring person for the rest of his life, an amazing act of love and kindness to a dog who really had a rough start and is not one who can be trusted to be rehomed. His grabbing/biting episodes with strangers, guarding his territory have meant he really could not be adopted from the Farm. A behaviorist was recently hired to evaluate him while in foster care in VT and concluded he was not trustworthy for any 'normal' adopter due to his history, recent episodes and her observations of him. Lucky for Jakey, very lucky for Jakey, he won a spot in a great home with a very good, solid dog person who will keep him safe. 

JAKEY: A 2 1/2  yr old Border Collie mix, Jakey is an amazing athlete - he jumps all four feet right off the ground at least two feet. He is super agile, super fast and really eager to learn and execute whatever you ask him to do. Jakey is a very obedient and very very smart, offering behaviors quickly, hoping for a treat and approval and to try something more challenging.  Jakey has been exposed to agility equipment and is fearless, eager to do any obstacle. He is a strong runner, loves toys of any kind and can cut and angle to retrieve a toy like any classic high drive border collie. Jakey is great with people and loves affection though he can be insecure at first, especially with men. He would do best with a woman as his main caretaker.  Jakey is fine with other dogs but would be happiest as a solo dog or with a submissive female.  He is about 40 pounds and Ok with dog savvy cats. He was surrendered to the Farm from PA because the guardian's other older dog was beating him up. Jakey came from a PA breeder originally



TAFF found the best life where he'll have canine friends, including a BC GHF alum, and he'll have a blast learning agility and having fun using his mind and body together.

He now lives in upstate NY.

Taff is focused on toys, fast and agile and also loves to join in the BC herding games already. He's about 8 pounds now, typical in size for his age. He was the last of a litter that had not sold.

He just loves men and was thrilled to have his own guy who really understands him - lots of car rides, ATV rides, hiking and being his constant companion - absolutely perfect for him! We're really so happy for this little dog to land again and know this time, it's forever! The great news about Flashy is that he's taking all the love from everyone who has been cheering him on!

Bonnie & John Yurga " In celebration of Oscar's 7th Anniversary"

Sara went into emergency care two days ago with problems that did not resolve.  We made the decision to let her go Monday 5/31/10. My strong connection with her tells me she will reunite with her person, the man she met years ago at the Farm. George and Sara are so incredibly bonded, they are sure to be together again.

Sara is good with cats and still has her petite figure though a bit thicker than years ago (like all of us!) She came to us originally at age 6 having been abandoned at a shelter and now finds herself looking for a home again since her guardian became ill. She was well loved for the last 5 years but has some needs as a senior dog now. Sara is a wonderful spirit, full of spunk and love.  Sara is being fostered in NJ


BAL: A 4 month old Border Collie, Bal is beautiful, brilliant, intelligent, very obedient, and extremely easy-going, as her new guardians described her. They had kindly offered to transport her and another BC to the Farm, when they arrived and quickly asked if they could head home with her!  Bal won their hearts in minutes as she gave them those gorgeous puppy eyes, making sure they knew, she wanted to live with them!  She now lives in upstate NY and had come from VT.



BO found the perfect life with another canine friend who loves to run and play like he does and guardians who have plenty of love to give. They knew that Bo was just the right fit for their life and were thrilled to meet this cuddly sweet go and get to take him home! He now lives in upstate NY.

BO: A 4 month old Border Collie mix, Bo is all about fun and joy - he is one happy little character who loves everyone instantly. He also loves to run and chase and wrestle with other dogs so would be thrilled to have a canine buddy. He is a sweet guy who loves to cuddle with his person, happily content to be by your side and most at ease, when he can go everywhere with you - clearly a people dog! Bo is very playful and can adapt his play style to be gentle or rough, depending on the dog. With Fletch, they were fast puppy friends. Bo is about 25 pounds, typical for his age and fine with cats. He came directly to the Farm from someone in PA who could not meet his needs, leaving him alone 8-10 hours a day. 



GRADIE found the perfect person who would understand his sweet nature and quirky ways! She saw him on the site and soon as she spent time with him at the Farm, knew he was the one! He'll be enjoying his new home in CT and a great outdoor paradise in Maine where he'll go to live when she retires. We're thrilled for Gradie who found exactly what he needed.

GRADIE: A 3 year old Border Collie, Gradie is a gentle, sweet, loving guy who likes everyone he meets. He loves affection and will happily be your shadow, curious about what's going on around him. He is very eager to learn.  Gradie is likely to be happiest as the only dog though he gets along fine with other dogs. He just loves to have his person and turns on a dime to come when called, just to be by your side.  He is full of joy and thrilled to race outside for fun, running like the wind, making his full circle lap to see what's going on.  He has a remarkable to explore and relax, both.  Gradie came to rescue from a PA  breeder who no longer wanted him.  He is about 35 pounds and good with dog savvy cats.




HOLLI found her forever home not far from her foster home in PA. She'll enjoy her very own 12 acre farm, set right next to 2000 acres of park land that she'll get to explore with her new guardians. She will be their constant companion on trail rides and at the beach home too, obviously a great life for a great dog who deserved to be loved through and through. Holli's new life is a far, far cry from being chained to a dog 'box' 24/7 with no way to be inside where she really wanted to be...she now has it all..love, fun and a big life! 

A very special thanks to Heather Groff and her husband who helped Holli remember that people are wonderful! Their first foster landed beautifully!

HOLLI: A 5 year old Border Collie, Holli is an outgoing girl who loves to play ball and stick games endlessly. She has plenty of focus, happily looking for her person for interactive play. She is smart and catches onto new things quickly. Holli does best with someone who is savvy to this breed and understands things that worry her and things that help build her confidence so she is clear about what to expect. She's a sweetheart and loves to be in your lap, very comfortable once she's settled in.  Holli likes to hang with other Border Collies but could also be happy as a solo dog since she loves to be where people are, she's not interested in being left outside alone.  Holli is 50 pounds and does fine with cats but best with dog savvy cats since she will chase if they run but will not herd them. She is trained on the invisible fence. Holli is being fostered not far from Harrisburg PA and can be met at the Farm. 




DESSIE: A 2 1/2 year old Border Collie, Dessie is a sweet, gentle girl who is learning how to have fun! She  and Jodi, came from the same breeder who dumped them at a PA shelter so this is her first time to enjoy the freedom to play. Dessie is very shy at first but so wants to be next to you, that she inches up carefully to your side for belly rubs and attention. Loud voices will scare her away so she'll need a patient home that understands it will take awhile for her to be a 'normal' run up to everyone kind of BC. When you're happy and at ease, so is she but it takes time for Dessie to feel safe. She will only be placed in a hard fence situation since she is so skittish.  And, she needs a home without young children that is quiet and preferably has a canine friend, a male BC. Dessie is a really special sweet, good natured girl and she's great with other Border Collies but she has not had the social contact with people to help her feel safe right away.  She will only be placed with a hard fence and with someone who is very patient to help her gain confidence, slowly. She is about 35 pounds and good with cats. Dessie is being fostered in NY
DESSI & ZELA will have a great life together with two guardians who love the breed and have plenty of time to devote to these two plus their elder canine friend, Katie, also loves pups and other dogs. This great trio will enjoy walks and play in their yard and be the center of attention. We're excited for Dessi who used to be a mom and took to Zela right away. And for Zela, who needs a doggie friend and guide to help her but she can also help Dessi, cause Zela's is one confident, happy go lucky girl balancing Dessi's shyness. It's a great pair to grow together! They now live in upstate NY.

ZELA: A 6-7 week old Border Collie (possibly mix),  Zela is mixing in with a few adult dogs so she has plenty of canine companionship and learning.  She is a real spitfire, on a mission to see the world. She comes instantly when called but also loves to explore on her own, running full speed into tall grass and then nose first into the dirt and flowers. She's a fearless little pup and loves to run with the big dogs and she's also learning about toys and loves to tug.  Zela loves everyone but certainly has a mind of her own, too.  She is a smart little pup for sure.

She is 5 pounds, just a wee little thing unaware of what could have gone wrong; who could have bought her; or how life could have been less than ideal... we are so pleased she is at the Farm and we will find just the right place for her. We're going to take applications for Zela now but will keep her in rescue for  another week, depending on how she is progressing. Only 12 inches long, she's a sweet, adorable, little girl. She came to the Farm from PA.



AGGIE found the best Border Collie home she could imagine with two GHF alums and guardians who adore the breed and know exactly what she will need to blossom and thrive.  Aggie will have plenty to do with outdoor fun, herding and playing BC games.  Her guardians have now adopted four dogs from the Farm,  and every one, has  a wonderful, loving, active life!  Aggie now lives in Ct.

AGGIE: A 4 month old Border Collie, Aggie is all action. Once she's comfortable, she loves to race, cut, angle and herd and she's one fast little girl when she turns it on. Aggie is very smart, observant and makes sense of things around her quickly, clearly a thinker. SHe really loves people and always checks back in with her person for guidance. She is a classic BC and will only go to a home who understands the breed and has another BC. Aggie is about 25 pounds and good with cats. She was too much for her previous guardian who had 5 kids and felt Aggie needed something different. 


WEAVER found just the right home with another BC friend, a GHF alum. They were the perfect pair together, good natured, easy going and in love with their guardian. Weaver instantly bonded with her and gave his vote, home for sure! We are really happy for both of these special BC's who needed a loving person who would give them everything ever needed! He now lives in NY.

WEAVER: A 3 year old Border Collie, Weaver is a gentle, sweet guy who loves dogs and is curious about everything. He's a bit shy in his curiosity but very eager to check everything out. He is easy going, not hyper or intense like other young BC's but he would love a friend for play. He is enjoying the freedom to be a happy go-lucky guy and blossoming each day. Weaver is about 40 pounds and not yet tested on cats. He came from a less than ideal situation and was fortunately moved to safety at the Farm. 




DEMPSEY: A 2 year old Border Collie, Dempsey is a delight - a sweet, energetic, fun-loving guy. He really loves to play with other dogs and loves people equally. Dempsey is very smart and very agile, able to hop up on top of crate in a second. He's a gorgeous guy when he runs and boy does he love to run. Dempsey has lots of energy but not overly intense though definitely would be happiest with another canine friend or doing sports with his person. Quite the cuddler, Dempsey keeps us all chuckling with his personality. He was previously in a home where the German Shepherd was attacking him so he came into rescue. He's a little camera shy and always on the move. 
PERRI & DEMPSEY became fast friends at the Farm when we mixed them together - it was instant love! They wrestled and chased and rolled and raced, non-stop, absolutely loving their canine connection. We are so thrilled they'll be able to stay together forever now and enjoy a closeness that we love to see with dogs. Their new guardians loved what they saw too and knew they had to stay together and since they had wanted a pair, this was the duo to take home for sure! Perri & Dempsey will have quite a life living on 230 acres that they now call home sweet home plus they have a summer lake cottage to enjoy, too. These two deserved the best and now they've got it!

PERRIE: An 8 month old Border Collie mix, Perrie is a love-bug, a really sweet girl who loves to cuddle and loves affection. She's friendly with people though a little timid with men at first. She is smart and eager to know what to do, food motivated and wanting to learn. She is a great player with other dogs and very eager to wrestle and chase and roll. She's also loves to run like the wind. Perrie is about 35 pounds and good with cats. She came to the farm from a PA shelter where she had been picked up as a stray. 



BRANDON found the life he so eagerly wanted - he'll get to do agility with his new guardian learning how to put his mind, body and emotions all together focused on a job. This sweet guy won her heart as he focused on her intently asking ' what do you want?', happy to connect and trying to sort out how to accomplish the task being asked of him. We are certain this brilliant boy will excel in the sports world and he surely loved his new Border Collie friend, Ozzie, a GHF alum. He happily headed out to his new life, excited to see what's ahead. Brandon now lives in CT.

BRANDEN: A 1 year old Border Collie, Branden is a classic young BC, active, focused and ready to go! He's fast and loves to run and play with other BC's, happy as can be with all the action. Branden is very focused on his person and he is eager to learn, super responsive and very smart. Branden is great with other dogs and will be happiest with another BC to make up herding games. He likes toys and could easily excel in sports and is a very good natured guy, adapting to new situations easily. Branden is about 40 pounds and best with dog savvy cats since he will chase them. He lived in one home since a pup but his previous guardian could not meet his energy needs. He is from NY. 


MARSHALL, a 2 year old Border Collie, didn't have to travel far to find his home.  A stray wandering a WalMart parking lot, he now has a warm, comfy couch to lay on and two canine friends to race and chase and play. His new guardian offered to overnight him for a transport to the Farm and fell in love!  He now lives in NJ with a GHF alum, another gorgeous BC.



ZEE is going to live at the Farm with the founders where she is stable and happy playing ball.  Her shadow chasing is less here and she does well with all the activity and fun at the Farm. She loves swimming and trail walks here, too.

ZEE: A 2 year old Border Collie, Zee is gorgeous, smart, focused and very observant. She is a great ball player and has a lot of eye as well, enjoying herding cars while she's traveling. Zee is all Border Collie. She fits easily with other dogs and joins in the activities without a bit of trouble, enjoying the action. She is great off leash and loves to swim. She is a super sweet, affectionate girl, happy to give a full body hug as she sits in your lap. Zee is about 38 pounds and Ok with dog savvy cats. She will need a patient adopter who can help with her shadow obsessions when she is bored. She does let that go fairly easily but will need a consistent training effort like what would be available to her with sports. She came to the Farm from Maine guardians. 




KELIE charmed her guardians when she played her inventive ball spin game, enjoying herself immensely, like a puppy. Then, she shared her sweet nature and gentle ways with them and they were sure she would fit in their lives perfectly. She'll be their constant companion, enjoying all their love and attention. We're sure Kelie will blossom beautifully since her new life is all about her! And, she'll always have a cozy, warm home to call her own! She now lives in NY.

KELIE: A petite 3 year old Border Collie, Kelie is all about love and cuddles. She will happily hop into your lap for endless affection. She is a gentle girl who gets along with other dogs but seems to thrive with her person the most.  She is smart and attentive but not overly intense. She loves to bat her ball around, making up games as she discovers how much fun toys really can be!   Kelie is new to toy experiences since she was chained outside at a farm (chained not far from Stan, her Dad recently adopted) and she was also allowed to run loose around the Farm.  She never left, instead she considered the Farm 'her job', though it wasn't an ideal life. The day we met Kelie, it was subzero weather and her 5 foot chain was pulled across packed down snow and there was no water, only food thrown on the snow.  No matter the circumstances, she loves everyone, a lovely classic BC who is an easy going, good natured companion!  She is good with cats and about 35 lbs.



CHLOE found the perfect life where she'll be the center of attention with her new guardian and have plenty of dog friends to play each day at doggie daycare. Chloe absolutely loves other dogs so fits in well with everyone she meets so she's got the best of everything combined in one life! Her new FurMom overnighted at the Farm to help her feel comfortable with her before heading out to her new life in NH! Chloe approved whole-heartedly!

CHLOE: A 3 year old Border Collie mix, Chloe is a gentle girl who befriends people easily even overcoming a bit of her shyness to do so. She is smart and observant and enjoys the dogs as much as attention from people. She is a small girl with a big heart and will blossom here at the Farm for sure. She absolutely loves to play with other dogs and will instigate play instantly and get even the ones who don't play, to play!  She is a sweetheart and bonds well to her person. We don't know much about her history except that Chloe was abandoned in a padlocked pen on a very sunny 97 degree day with a sign saying, 'free dog'.  Needless to say, we received a call from a horrified dog lover and went to get her. She's happily adjusted to her new life with lots of tail wags. She is about 35 pounds and good with cats. 



DAISY was at the Farm at exactly the right moment to find her forever home. Her new guardians wanted a mature companion for their BC, Boone, and Miss Daisy fit perfectly. The two of them laid on the grass keeping an eye on all the action, like a married couple, happy to hang together to watch the world go by. A very cute pair, Daisy happily hopped into the car to head off to upstate NY for her new life. She'll get plenty of walks and hiking, enjoying her new property and happily hang on the couch for cuddles.

DAISY: A 7 year old Border Collie, Daisy found her way to the Farm and immediately made herself right at home. She rolled on the ground, said hello to all the dogs and then followed the caretaker around as if she belonged here. She's sweet as can be, easy going and fun but little did she know that finding a home, would be easy. One of our former adopters recently lost her beloved GHF BC and soon as Daisy arrived, we knew she could be the perfect fit. So, Daisy set off in style with one of our intake team to meet her new guardian. We'll update the news shortly. Daisy surely has an angel on her shoulder because we got to her hours before she was about to be abandoned at a PA shelter due to a move to California. 




MINDIE found the perfect life with wonderful guardians and another canine friend! They came to the Canine Country Getaway Camp for a week, knowing they wanted to meet dogs and adopt a friend but soon as they saw Mindie in action, she was the one! She showed off all her fiesty, fun-loving nature, racing around the fields at camp, meeting all the other dogs and then staying right by their side, as if she was clear exactly what was up. We're sure she knew they wanted her to live with them cause after two nights in the RV, she barely said hello to the rescue caretakers, instead happy to hang with her new people! We were thrilled to meet her guardians and see Mindie be the life of the party! She now lives in NJ.

A very special thanks to Ellen and Andy Simcik who kindly paid for Mindie's hydrotherapy sessions to get her mobility back after 6 years of sitting in a barn night and day, all alone. We're pretty sure Miss Mindie is making up for lost time and loving her new life!

MINDIE: A 10 year old Border Collie, Mindie is a loving, sweet and incredibly good natured girl. She is such a character, absolutely loving life.  She is great with every human she meets and happy to be the center of attention, too.  Mindie is smart and eager to be with people and gets along famously with other dogs, too. As a female BC, she can be the boss, wanting to control the action so probably is best suited to hang with the boys.  She loves toys of any kind and absolutely loves playing tug.   She spent the past 6 years left in a crate in a barn fed by a neighbor. The night she was rescued, she had frozen water and a layer of ice on her thin bed of hay. It was truly believed she would not have survived.  We are very happy that Mindie made it to a safe and loving situation. She came from PA. Mindie clearly thinks life is a blast now and is enjoying it fully! She would be a superb friend and family member.  She is best with dog savvy cats.




On Thur 6/10/10, we said good-bye to Katey, a sweet, wonderful character full of spunk and charm though stuck in a body that wasn't cooperating too well. Her arthritic condition made it hard to move quickly... her eyesight meant sometimes she missed things right in front of her... her senior deafness left her a beat behind at times and her other health complications meant she was working extra hard to keep up in life. However, Miss Katey had fun! She charged the dogs at the Farm to let them know she was boss and even chased the little dogs in her foster home to deliver the same message. Watching them from door entrances was her specialty, giving that glance of intent to let them know 'she was the boss' though her body couldn't quite keep up with her mind to turn her thoughts into fast action, anymore.

Our dearest Miss Katey passed on Thursday night when it was apparent that the masses in her body were winning the battle over good health. Linda, her fosterer and Lillie, spent time by Katey's side, giving her a final touch of love and deep caring so she could be sent on her way. As Linda said, 'it looks like Katey is smiling, as if she knows what is going on and is ready'. May angels fly you far and wide Katey as you find the  peace of your next steps, beyond what we all will understand who are left here on earth without you. Thank you for gracing us with those big brown eyes and big heartfelt sweetness that is only you.

Though you strayed in life and landed alone in a shelter, we held you in our hearts through the last nine months and will continue to do so, as if you were always ours. A very special gratitude to Linda Wood, who opened her home and heart for hospice care for Katey. And, to the team at the Farm: Karen, Kay, Cat and Courtney, who loved Katey through her worst health to the best we could offer.

Fly on sweet Katey.




JASPER: A 6 1/2 year old retriever/border collie mix, Jasper is a wonderful dog, absolutely the friendliest dog, enjoying everyone he meets. He lives with two young children and is great with them as well as great with the cat, even playing with him. Jasper is a beloved family member who has lived in his current home since 9 months old but now with the two kids, there is less time for running him for exercise. His current guardians feel he deserves more. He has no issues with taking food from him or handling him. He's good meeting people on leash as well as dogs on leash, when out walking. Jasper does love other dogs though is not pushy with them at all, just joins right in with whatever they are doing. Jasper also loves to run and is quite the sight when he gets going full speed. He's very relaxed at home in the house and has good manners. His pictures don't show off how handsome he really is. He lives in Stanford NY, about 40 minutes from the Farm. He can be met at his home or at the Farm, where we would be happy to provide a spot to get to know him.
HOOT & JASPER ended up in a life together that no one could have predicted! Their new guardians came to adopt a Border Collie friend for their aussie who had lived with a BC all her life. They saw three wonderful dogs including Jasper and to their surprise, she picked Jasper as her long lost buddy, instantly in love. They raced and chased like they were meant for each other... an incredible testament to how honest dogs are in picking their friends! While she liked Hoot, she loved Jasper so he was the obvious dog to add to their lives but they, themselves, just couldn't leave without taking Hoot too. They had fallen in love with his sweet nature and since they'd had three dogs before, knew this would be a great life again with a wonderful trio. They overnighted at the nearby Inn and all three dogs began playing happily together, giving their new guardians a sure sign that they had made the perfect decision for everyone involved. This trio lives in PA and will surely have a blast together.

HOOT: A 7 year old Border Collie, Hoot is a great guy, happy to be around everyone and interested in everything. He loves people and he's good with other dogs but could be content as a solo dog. He's very smart and easy going with a sweet personality. Hoot is ok with dog savvy cats and he's about 50 pounds, a little bit taller than average size. He and his son, Hayden, were abandoned at a NY shelter from the farm where they herded goats. We don't know how much they worked the goats since neither seems to have a strong herding drive.
