Emie stole the hearts of her new guardians before they even met her in person so while they met a number of other dogs, as soon as she came out and chased the ball, they knew she was the onefor them. Emie will have loads of fun hiking, biking, swimming and out in all kinds of winter sports too in her new life in upstate NY. She has people who are just as active as she is!

EMIE is an 10 month old Border Collie who is really good natured with everyone she meets, absolutely loves people, a real cuddler. She is eager to bond and very responsive and attentive to any person with her. She is also very active, fast and agile and needs enough activity to keep her mentally challenged. Emie has lots of energy and loves to play with other Border Collies, getting along best with male dogs. She is very, very smart and like any young Border Collie, eager to learn new things. She is about 35 pounds and Emie is not good with cats. She was surrendered to a shelter in PA. 



Spree found her forever home with a pack of dogs as sweet as her and guardians who loved her brilliant sweet nature instantly and are thrilled to have her join their lives for agility fun! Spree will have her own equipment in her backyard for lots of practice training sessions and get to travel around at competitions, too. Plus, she has 17 acres for loads of exploring and her very own pond! Spree now lives in Vt.

SPREE: A 6 month old Border Collie, Spree is everything a Border Collie is: non-stop motion, continual focused energy and brilliant sweetness. She is classic. Spree will need a serious sport home or very active home and will only be adopted into a home that meets this criteria. She is fast, fun and smart as a whip. Spree is also showing herding tendencies, ball focus andwonderful agile qualities, absolutely in love with the top of the couch as her perch. Spree is great with other dogs, reads them just fine and learning how to play with them day by day at the Farm. She is about 25 pounds, a bit more petite than some 6 month old pups and good with cats. Spree lived with an elderly couple who abandoned her at a NY shelter who fortunately contacted us before they even arrived, asking for help since they knew placing her would require just the right focus. Spree is a wonderful Border Collie and will easily be incredible with people who understand her needs.


DACOTA found someone who can seriously match his energy level, racing, chasing, running and playing continual ball games! He was thrilled to have a new friend and his new loving guardians were smitten by his sweet, good nature as well as all his drive to play, play, play. Dacota now lives in CT where he'll get to try herding and agility, all for fun.

DACOTA: A 3 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Dacota is a wonderful ball boy, thrilled to play with toys of any kind but happy to retrieve, retrieve, retrieve. He is extremely friendly with everyone he meets and eager to be involved in any activity, with other dogs or with people. He is very good natured, easy going and fun. Dacota is a focused Border Collie who wants something to do and for him, playing with toys is his work. He is also so responsive and relationship oriented that he could be great in sports of any kind. Dacota is 38 pounds, typical in size and is good with cats. He was relinquished due to a lifestyle change that left him alone for long periods, prior to that he was a beloved friend. He came to the Farm from Rochester NY.


JOE PYE found his forever home with his foster family. They had fallen in love long ago when they took him in to foster but gave him a chance to be adopted - he went out twice and showed behaviors in the homes that he had never shown in theirs - so after reviewing the whole process, they knew there was one place best for him to stay - with them! He had won their hearts and he fit their pack perfectly so in a twist of fate, he happily has a new home forever in Canada, adored!

JOE PYE: Joe Pye a 4 year old  (born 11/03/2002) smooth coat pure bred BC.  Joe Pye is a love. Like most border collies, he is very eager to please and glows when you praise him. He has a very intense herding drive, and will herd cats around the house. He does not bite them, just makes sure they are where they are supposed to be. 

He is incredibly smart- he knows hand signals- how to sit, lay down, stay (that's really hard for him), come, good boy and no. His current guardian can flicker the lights if he's in another room or outside and he will come to her. He stays close to you, finds you and stays with you in every room of the house and outside.  He is great at the vet's, is the best dog in the car (hops right in, curls up and falls asleep), and doesn't mind water.

Joe Pye is deaf, was born that way. A breeder relinquished him due to the deafness so he was adopted to prevent euthanasia. His deafness is not much of a hindrance for him. Everything he does is one fast movement- coming in and out from outside, playing with the other dog in the house or checking on things in the house. He is not a couch potato and it is hard to get him to stand still to pet him. He is very sweet. He loves to play chase with other dogs. He rarely barks- almost never- but he will do this deaf muffled whine that is adorable when he gets really happy/excited like when you are rubbing/scratching him all over.

He is about 40-45 pounds and would do very well with other border collies (vs other dogs) and dog-smart cats (as long as the people of the house don't mind him herding them around). 



POPPY: A petite 2 year old Border Collie mix, Poppy is very very agile and fast, loving to race and chase, wrestle and roll with other dogs. She is very attentive to people and wants to be involved with everyone she meets. A sweet, friendly girl, she has lots of energy and will be placed with another dog so she'll be happiest. Poppy absolutely loves toys of all kinds and will be a quick learner in any activity. She is a big time water lover, happy to swim and swim and she dives right in. She is very tiny, about 20 pounds and is good with cats. She was confiscated from a bad situation where she had been confined to a bedroom, muzzled to keep her from barking and very emaciated. The previous owner was not mentally sound. Poppy is no worse for the challenges and fortunately, the NY shelter contacted us to take her in. 

TUCK and POPPY found the perfect home together! They will have a very active life of non-stop playing as well as hiking, camping and agility, rally O and flyball...their new guardians wanted an active pair of fun-loving Border Collies to add to their lives. And, clearly, Tuck won their hearts with his special sweetness as did Poppy with her focused readiness for play! They were a perfect pair and headed out to their new lives in upstate NY where they will have loads of fun!

TUCK: A 4 month old Border Collie, Tuck is brilliant and fun, ready for action like all young Border Collies. Tuck loves to play with other young dogs and will need that stimulation to handle his energy needs- he is all border collie! He's already stalking to herd the other dogs. Tuck is housetrained and knows hand signals and is very responsive to everyone he meets. Tuck is deaf and well on the way to understanding everything around him easily. He hangs with other dogs and is always close by any person. Tuck bonds quickly and is real sweetheart, loving cuddles as well as action. He will be a wonderful companion, able to learn anything and everything since he is so well connected to people and has the foundation of training needed for communication. He is about 25 pounds, not yet tested on cats. Tuck is one of three dogs, abandoned by a breeder to a NY all breed rescue who fortunately wanted to work with the Farm. The breeder had planned to euthanize him due to his deafness but called the local rescue instead. They normally charge $1000 for a puppy.


BANDY found her forever home with another furry friend who is about as shy as she is so they hit it off perfectly, very appropriate with each other in playing and being together. Her new guardian felt the match was just what would work for both dogs to be very very happy. Bandy now lives in central NY, happily playing and herding the cat!

BANDY , a 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Bandy is a very gentle, people oriented dog who is very very loving. She curls right up in your lap easily happy to be with you, for a belly scratch. Bandy will enjoy that one on one connection endlessly but she also has the classic focused Border Collie eye so with other dogs around, she goes into action. She can be a strong lead dog controlling the action which is typical of female Border Collies. Since Bandy can be shy at first, she will be placed with another more confident Border Collie (male) to draw her out and allow her to feel more comfortable quickly. When she is with the right BC, she plays and plays and plays. She is such a loving dog, so happy to be cuddled and in your arms. Bandy is good with cats and is about 35 pounds. She was relinquished to the Farm from another rescue in PA after her guardians relinquished her because the Golden Retriever in the house kept attacking her.


Lucky Leo found a new life with three wonderful young girls who were smitten with his charming good nature as well as playful puppy like ways. He was the only dog they all wanted to see and they clearly were charmed when they met him, so off he went to a new life in upstate NY where he will be adored forever. Leo is the luckiest dog to have continual love, a long long way from his rough start in Ecuador on the streets!

LEO is a 2 year old Border Collie who is a very comical, sweet character full of spark and play and eager to be with everyone. He is a great canine citizen of the world (literally) since he came to us from Ecuador. Leo fit in beautifully at the Farm, running and playing and meeting the dozen dogs with ease. He gets along with everyone and every dog, a very good natured guy for sure. Leo is certainly very smart, alert and wants something to do. Much like a puppy, he will grab things and drag them outside for playtime creating toys from anything he can find, so will need some patient training to adjust to a new home. Leo does have an off switch and lays quietly on his bed , happy to be with you while you are busy. He is totally housetrained and crate trained. He is very happy to go with you anywhere and will be a wonderful companion. Leo is great with cats and about 35 pounds, a bit petite in size.


ANDY found his forever home with a guardian who can focus on his needs and truly offer all his time for a wonderful life together, playing frisbee and ball and hiking. Andy clearly enjoyed the bond and headed off to his new life in Massachusetts where he will be adored.

ANDY: A 5 year old Border Collie, Andy is a really friendly, easy going, happy dog who loves everyone. He is very good natured, very affectionate and great with dogs and people alike. Andy loves balls and any toy play plus he likes to swim. He really wants to be with someone most of the day since he used to go to work with his former guardian who worked at a barn. Plus Andy also worked with troubled kids as a therapy dog, being companion to the kids day in and day out. He is very well behaved and brilliant, aware of what is being asked of him in a moment...a call of his name brings him right to you, ready to do whatever is next to do. Andy is good with cats, though may chase since he does have herding instinct. Andy has been evaluated at Cornell for an eye problem where his pupils do not dilate properly. He has deterioration of his retinas which may progress though a re-test will indicate whether the problem progresses or not, meaning his sight may not get worse. The retinal deterioration was caused by the toxicity of ivermectin, a common drug in heart guard preventative which is not to be used with this breed. Andy can see fine now. Simple drops in his eyes work to contract his pupils for days when he is going to be outside in the sun. He recently lived in PA with his guardian who found him where he worked on a ranch in Montana. A change in lifestyle meant giving up Andy so he came to the Farm. 


HAP found her forever home with guardians who were totally smitten by her sweetness and incredible focus playing with her jolly ball. Hap won them over as she herded the ball, tossed it in the air and was ready to go for more, more, more. And, then her sweet shy nature (once the ball was gone) touched them deeply and they knew she was the one for them! Hap now lives in Ct.

HAP: A petite 1 1/2 yr old Border Collie, Hap is incredibly sweet and people oriented, loving to be in your lap for attention. She does love the frisbee and any toys, too. Hap is very eager to learn and likes to try new things. She would benefit from confidence building training and has done beautifully with initial training we are doing at the Farm. She will be placed with another more confident Border Collie. She is good with cats, about 30 pounds. She is one of 25 dogs surrendered to the Farm from a guardian in PA who had personal troubles. 


LUCIE found her forever home with dear Friends of the Farm who have other Border Collies from us. One of her new guardians is a renown animal communicator so we'll let Lucie speak for herself about her new life!! She now lives in upstate NY, happy for sure! 

Dear Lillie,
I have found my place and am doing just great.  Dawn and Margot say to tell you that you can go ahead and put the little red heart on my listing on site.  If you talk to my other people again, please tell them that I am settling in a new home and have a new job.  Just like they needed to do different things, so did I.  I have a job!  Tell them my new family actually needs me to be here with them.  There is lots of work to do.  I have 6 dog friends who need my mature guidance.  There are many cats that also seem to need my guidance but they don't seem to realize that yet.  There are lots of horses to look at and a whole farm which I haven't explored yet but will soon.  I have a big fenced in field where we all get to go run, play, and play ball.  I get to play LOTS of ball and that is great.  Today, I checked out the big field all the way around.  It is really beautiful here.  I want my other people to know that I'm going to be just fine here.  It is so great that this new family was looking for me and my special talents.  Lillie, I look forward to seeing you and the farm again.  I hope the others are doing ok without me.  I like everyone here and am glad to be here.
Lucie

LUCIE: A 10 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Lucie is a charmer, a real sweetheart, eager to be with someone who will toss her  the ball or frisbee. She loves playing and is always up for a good game of catch. She is a friendly girl and fine with other dogs though always most excited to play with toys. Lucie could easily fit in any Border Collie family. She is good with kids, great on leash and good in the car and also good with cats. A really wonderful, sweet girl, Lucie has been in one home since a puppy. She is carrying some extra weight which she'll loose easily at the Farm. She was relinquished to the farm due to a job change that left her alone way too long for her to be happy. She came to the Farm from upstate NY. 


JIGS found a home where all his drive is never considered too much cause he'll be doing serious agility and having a ball using his mind and his body fully. He was exactly what his new guardian had been hoping to find, patiently waiting for the 'crazy, brilliant' border collie to find her, too and that he did..a perfect match! Jigs will be fun to see unfold doing what only Border Collies do best - be focused, fast and fun! Jigs now lives in Vt

JIGS: A 10 month old Border Collie, Jigs is all action, the fastest dog at the Farm now. He races full speed across the fields, leaping over any dog in his way, even turning at the last minute to change direction. He would be a superb agility or flyball candidate. Jigs is very toy focused and driven. He is great with other dogs, especially border collies since he can make up herding games to keep him mentally and physically stimulated. Jigs will be placed in a performance sport home only or with seriously active people. Jigs is also the sweetest people oriented Border Collie, very very gentle, great with kids. All he wants to do is play, be loved and love back, happy to cuddle with you. Jigs is about 35 pounds, typical in size and good with cats. He was in a PA shelter due to be euthanized due to space and a volunteer pulled him to safety and then kindly drove him to the Farm.

We are thrilled for Zak and hope to see him in action as the years unfold. Zak now lives in PA.

ZAK: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Zak is all energy, ready to herd, race and chase and wrestle. He loves playing with other Border Collies and does best with another physical dog since his energy level is intense. He is very very responsive to people and easy going when with you but once another dog arrives, he is happy to enjoy young Border Collie herding games. Zak is great in the car, in the house and easily trainable. A very smart, eager to learn dog, Zak is classic in his manner and energy level. He is about 35 pounds and needs cats that are border collie savvy used to being herded. He was dumped at a NY shelter due to his energy level after the breeder would not take him back. 


DAYSE found the perfect family with kids who will happily keep her busy playing, playing, playing. Watching them race out the adoption office door, hollering 'Dayse!' 'Dayse' 'Dayse' was adorable and perfect for her. Dayse loved every minute of the attention and clearly charmed her new guardians as the perfect fit for them. Dayse now lives playing endless ball in Rhode Island.

DAYSE: A 5 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Dayse is a lovely, friendly happy girl who absolutely loves a great game of ball retrieval. She will play endlessly and is quite good at a fast speed return. She is very smart, eager to please and loves to meet anyone and everyone.

Dayse is also a water nut, very happy to play and splash, dunking for her ball or enjoying a good dunk in the tub or swim in the creek. She is good with cats and about 35 pounds, typical in size. Dayse will need a hard fence since she is a car chaser and will go through an electronic fence system. She was relinquished to the Farm from guardians in NY who had her since a puppy but were unable to install a hard fence. She was a beloved friend and sorely missed.


Sweet wonderful Capp found his forever home with caring guardians who have a Border Collie just as sensitive as Capp, so they understand the patience needed to make him feel safe and happy.

BAXTER found the perfect home with loving guardians who love the breed and understand his timid nature and will happily help build his confidence and give him all the love he needs. Unlike before where Baxter lived 8 -16 hours stuck in an apartment, he will now have three gorgeous acres all his own to explore everyday day while being the constant companion to his new furmom! And, he even has another furry friend for company, too. Baxter will be thoroughly adored, living in upstate NY.

BAXTER is a 2 1/2 yr. old male Border Collie. He is very sweet, loving and attentive and craves affection and time with his person. Baxter takes a little time to warm up to new people since he is shy but once comfortable, he is a happy go lucky dog. He is most comfortable around women, so needs a patient man and a calm  surrounding. He would do okay in a home with older children. Baxter loves to run and chase with other dogs for play and does best with female border collies or could live as a solo dog.    Baxter has not shown any interest in ball, frisbee or herding, he is most focused on his person.

DALE: A 4 year old Border Collie, Dale is a lively, smart, ready to go dog who wants to play ball and be in the middle of the action. He is good with other herding dogs who also like the same focused action. Dale responds quickly to dog oriented people and wants to please. He needs to be in a border collie experienced home where people understand his emotional needs. He will be placed in an adult home only since children make him nervous. Dale is very very sweet and good natured but showed some tendencies to react to strangers when caught by surprise so he will do best with someone building his confidence through continued training. Dale knows all kinds of commands already and even balances a bone on his nose until it's ok to take it. He loves frisbee, has been exposed to agility and flyball and does well. He is quickly enjoying his Border Collie friends at the Farm and could enjoy living with another BC or as a solo dog in an active home. He has spent time in doggie daycare so does well with lots of different dogs but best with Border Collies. He was previously living in an apartment with not enough space or time to respond to his needs so he was relinquished to the Farm. He lived in one home his whole life til now and came from CT. 


ROBBIE found his forever home with friends of the Farm who have spent lots of time with him, walking the fields at the Farm and enjoying his good nature whenever they visit. They felt he would be the perfect addition to their fur family and so did he.

Kasi will happily enjoy lots of mental games and dog games in her new home in western NY because she really loves to learn plus tons of cuddling, another Kasi favorite pastime.

KASI: A 5 month old Border Collie, Kasi is a lovebug, sweet through and through. She loves people and is happiest playing with other dogs, racing and running. She is good natured and not overly intense with herding though she is very active which is why she is in rescue.

She is smart, attentive and eager to learn anything and everything and like any young BC, loves toys of any kind. She is typical in size for her age and good with cats.

Smokey is not high energy, instead he is more easy going and calm. He has some herding instinct which shows up when around other dogs since he'll herd them a bit but easily stops to come when called. Smokey is fine with other dogs but could live as a solo dog since people are his first focus. He is very smart and food motivated so would be easy to train. He loves to meet people but prefers women to men and can be a little shy at first. He is fine with cats and weights about 45 pounds, typical in size for the breed.

TELLY headed off to a great life of lots of hiking every day and weekends with his new guardian who wanted an athletic, fun loving older dog to join her. Telly showed his agile ways when he raced around the yard keeping pace with the young border collies and clearly a great match for her 5-8 mile hikes in the hills. Telly headed for the car and a happy new life where he will be adored living with his guardian and new furry friend in NJ.

He is good with cats and is about 35 pounds. 


ROC will be living at the Farm for the remainder of his life where he will share his remarkable spirit to all that meet him and visit. He is a heart worker sharing the magic of living. 

He spoke to us in his own words:
My life has been of purpose and will be until my last breath. At that point, I will travel to my spirit home. Do not ever be sad for me. Why should you be sad for my happiness? I am more spiritually awake now than ever before. Nothing bad has happened to me. Nothing needs to be fixed. I am on purpose and will continue so, even when you can no longer see me in your realm, I will still be alive and living. Your heart knows this is true. Stay true to that heart. Your connection with me is based only on truth. Death is not a philosophy. You deny yourself life when you worry all the while about death. Death is not the opposite of life at all. It is a part of life. It is all life and nothing short of that. When the last breath leaves my body, I hope you will feel my spiritual breath. Because the breath into spirit from physical is a glorious one. I came here to focus on life, not death. Please do not lock me up in a glass jar to watch me die. Set me free to watch me live. From this you will learn much. You will learn strength of heart. You will learn freedom of spirit. And you will learn to look with your heart and not your mind. 

You see, Iím alive. I share my love with all who share with me. I have no remorse for anything in my life. I participate in each and every moment of every single day. I am a participant, and not an observer. I have no regrets. I know the conviction of my heart. I dance for joy each day, in my own way. I am living. I know the ecstasy of each sunrise and the passion in every sunset. I am aware of the sanctity of all life, not just my own. I feel my spirit flowing within me. And I am certain that I am on purpose and where I am supposed to be. You have heard me, felt me, let me into your heart. You have listened. You have understood. You are letting me live. Living my life with my path. And I will share it all freely with you. Of this you can be certain. Its all about trust. Trust in the force that is life. Trust in the force that is spirit. Trust in your own heart to love purely. Trust that your heart can be loved purely. Trust in just being. Learn to trust these things, and you can not fail but to be alive. Wonderfully, purposefully, gloriously alive. Just like I am. Go forth and live!


ABBIE found her forever home with another dog from the farm, Robby, when her new guardians saw her picture on the site and knew she was the perfect fit for their life. They came to see her and off she went, happily with her new furry friend and loving people who will cherish her. Abbie now lives in NJ where she'll be playing til her heart is content.

ABBIE: A 7 month old Border Collie mix, Abbie is a delightful girl, a really wonderful good natured spirit who just loves everyone. She is quite the cuddler and loves to play, too. Abbie is a toy girl and also loves to race and chase and wrestle with other dogs. She is confident and sweet and easy going though full of spunk since she is a pup. Abbie is about 25 pounds and likely to be petite. She would be happy with another dog friend as well as loving guardians since she sure loves to cuddle. Abbie was taken to a shelter in PA which fortunately, works with the Farm frequently and called for help. 


ABBY found her forever home with guardians who will be with her all the time and she has a wonderful yard for continual mousing...she just loves to hunt for mice! Abby will also get to do agility and obedience so will have plenty to keep her mind busy as well as tons of love. Abby now lives in New Hampshire.

ABBY is a three year old Border Collie with lots of personality and smarts. She is a real thinker, observing everything around her and then making her own decisions about what she does next. Abby is very very smart and once she bonds, a real love bug. Abby loves to be in the action yet she is also very calm and attentive. She is a great family member, good with people although she can be a little shy when you first meet her. Abby is great with other dogs, playing typical Border Collie games, chasing and herding. She is quite the instigator to get other dogs to play, then she gets the 'zoomies' getting them to race after her. She loves toys, a game of fetch, and car rides. She is a wonderful companion. She is not good with cats. Abby is being given up due to a divorce and no longer enough time for her. She came from the Pittsburgh area.



ZANE won the hearts of his new guardians with his obsession for ball playing. His new furdad loves ball play and felt Zane would enjoy being his constant companion, heading to work and at home, with lots of tennis ball throws in between! Zane now lives near the farm in upstate NY so we just might get to see him from time to time.

ZANE: A 4 year old Border Collie, Zane is delightful. He is a very composed, thoughtful Border Collie who clearly loves people and is really loving and gentle. He instantly wants to be by your side and is content to wait until it's time for ball play and then he's off in a fast dash after the ball and then circles right around you, dropping the ball right by your side. Zane certainly had someone who spent time training him. He does not jump up, travels great in the car, is great on leash and is very easy going, not overly intense at all. Zane is about 35 pounds, and good with cats. He was a stray in western NY and the shelter contacted the Farm to take him.

TEDDY is a 6 month old Border Collie mix. He is an adorable sweet guy who is gentle and a bit shy at first, but once warmed up, plays like any young pup. He loves to wrestle with other dogs, race and chase and he is just getting interested in toys. Teddy loves attention and is very outgoing though would benefit from some confidence building with toys, sports and training. He is great with other dogs and can be mouthy like any pup so would be best with children old enough to understand his mouthiness. He is about 25 pounds. Teddy was living with an elderly woman who bought him as a pup but realized he was too much for her. He was relinquished to the farm from PA.

TOBEE: A 8 month old Border Collie, Tobee is not only gorgeous, he is full of energy like any young BC. He races and chases and herds and plays with toys non-stop and loves to be with other dogs. Tobee is wonderful with people and likes meeting anyone and everyone, totally friendly and eager to say hello. He is very very smart, eager to learn and could easily excel in sports. He will only be placed with another dog, preferably a Border Collie since he needs the mental and physical stimulation of another herding dog. Tobee already has basic obedience skills and clearly bonds quickly. He is about 30 pounds and is good with cats. Tobee was in a NY shelter adopted out and returned due to an illness in the family. 


CHANCE waited a little while for his family to come but when they did, they were clearly HIS family!

CHANCE: A 5 year old Border Collie, Chance is a real character, full of personality and friendly to everyone he meets. He is easy going and playful with other dogs and enjoys to be involved in whatever is going on, a partner in the fun. Chance loves the water and could live as the solo dog or with other dogs and be quite happy. Chance would be a wonderful family dog because he loves everyone. He was taken care of by the neighborhood where he was abandoned just because of his great nature and sweetness. Chance is probably mixed with a bigger breed since he's larger than traditional border collies. He is also more easy going and has no herding instincts, he would rather just be with you and join in walks and enjoying whatever your want to do. He is good with cats. Chance came from the Pittsburgh area. 


RHODIE found his forever home with another Border Collie who visited the Farm for summer camp, Aila and Jake, a fun loving Golden Retriever.

Rhodie will have lots of fun hiking as well as trying agility.

He is very smart and would benefit from some confidence building in training since he can be a little skittish in new situations. He does well playing with other young Border Collies though he might be ok as a solo dog since he is so people focused. Rhodie will be placed with guardians who understand the breed. He is good with cats, and is about 40 pounds. Rhodie lived with another Border Collie previously but was breaking the electronic fence to chase cars so will be placed in a hard fence situation. He has no interest in running away, in fact, he is clearly happiest with his person near him and some action of other dogs around at the same time. Rhodie came to the Farm from an upstate NY shelter who felt we could best place him. 


CHARLIE found his new family instantly once they saw his smiling face and watched his race for the frisbee and balls but they just fell in love with his cuddly nature and connection with them!

He'll have plenty of fun running at his new home and enjoy lots of cuddling, too. He now lives in Virginia.

APOLLO is a 3 year old Border Collie, possibly mix, who had a rough start coming into rescue but is on the road to healing well. He came in without much hair due to a severe flea allergy but is now looking really good and soon to be his gorgeous self. Though he had clearly been neglected, Apollo loves people and really wants to be cuddled and connected with lots of love so he's now moved to a foster home where he can get one-on-one attention. He is a sweet loving dog who will clearly blossom with time. He is about 25 pounds and not good with cats. Apollo does not tolerate male dogs well and is best with submissive young Border Collies but most likely would do best as the only dog. Apollo came to the Farm from PA. We are really pleased we could help Apollo land in a place to heal. 


Beautiful sweet BROOK found the perfect home for her, living with the vet who had met her while she was being fostered. An immediate attraction was underway and it wasn't long before Brook was on her way to her new life, being adored and cherished. Brook's new guardians patiently understand that her skittish nature requires  some time for adjustments but of course once in their home, Brook seemed so comfortable, it was clear she had found just the right place. Brook was in rescue for over a year, waiting for the perfect people who would allow her special sweetness to unfold at her own pace. We are thrilled for Brook and know that she'll have a wonderful life now, living in upstate NY with two furry friends and loving people. A special thanks to her foster mom who made this all possible. 

BROOK: A very petite 4 year old Border Collie, Brook is a gentle, sweet girl who loves people and also loves a challenge. She is very very smart and would benefit from a home where she could learn lots of new things like obedience or agility. Brook is sometimes shy in new situations so will need a patient guardian who works with her to build her confidence without a lot of chaos around. Brook is most comfortable with women so will need a mostly female home. With some help, she quickly takes on new challenges. Brook is good with children though again, a chaotic home would not be right for her. Brook is about 30 pounds, much tinier than the average border collie and is good with cats. Brook was part of a group of 10 dogs given up to the Farm from a breeder who had been shut down in NJ. The dogs lived outside in pens though we suspect Brook spent some time inside since she loves being in the house. 


The wonderful Miss MOLLY found her person almost to the day she arrived a year ago...it may seem like a really long time to be at the Farm but we are absolutely certain that Molly was waiting for her new person and this timing was exactly when she wanted it to happen. Molly's new guardian is a border collie person through and through and instantly knew that Molly was the perfect girl to step into her life after loosing her other beloved female Border Collie.  Molly will be the hit of the beauty shop where her guardian works as well as have a chance to try herding sheep and even enjoy swimming in the pond which Molly truly loves! We trust that Molly knew exactly what she wanted and when she wanted it and her new person agreed that she was thrilled Molly was here for her! She now lives in Vt.

MOLLY: A 6 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Molly is a thoughtful girl who thinks through everything she does, especially when she 'works' the perimeter of the paddock ever eager to keep an eye on the action as well as search for mice in the fields.. she loves the outdoors and exploring. Molly also LOVES to swim - she loves the water and will enjoy paddling around any pond.  She loves everyone he meets as well as gets along with Border Collies best since they are on the same wavelength. She could live with a submissive male BC but would love being a solo dog as the center of attention.  She is about 40 pounds and good with cats but needs to be in a home setting with adults only. She is uncomfortable around the chaos of children. She is one of 25 dogs surrendered to the Farm from a guardian in PA who had personal troubles.

Briez is incredibly smart, attentive to every detail in a relationship with a person, responsive instantly to any change. Briez will go to a border collie savvy home with other herding dogs and could easily do any sport, especially because of her small size. She is about 25 pounds and good with cats.
