|The following border
collies mixes are available through other agencies or as independent
placements by owners. The adoption of the dogs

volunteers have temperament tested those dogs displaying the GHF logo in
their bio on the date indicated. The evaluation and information
provided is accurate, only as of that date. All others are listed
solely as a courtesy.
PLEASE BE AWARE that you need to check people out before handing
over your dog to someone you do not know. There are unscrupulous people
who appear to be good adopters so be cautious and check references,
especially asking for a neighbor's phone number so you can be sure that
the information about them is accurate. We recommend a TRANSFER
OF OWNERSHIP agreement so that you can have some written
agreement about your dog's future situation in the event it does not
work out for the person to keep the dog. It is important to insure that
your dog does not eventually land in a shelter where he or she could be
euthanized. Instead, the person agrees in writing to notify you so
that you can then step in and take an appropriate course of action.

BABY & GROMIT: TWO 8 YEAR OLD BORDER COLLIE MIXES
I have (2) 8 year old border collie mixes, a brother and sister, that
I can no longer take care of. I 'rescued' these dogs when they were
puppies from a hoarder in North Carolina. My intentions were good, but I
had no idea what it took to properly take care of such high energy dogs.
I've managed thus far with limited success, but my situation has changed
(again) and I've found myself in a terrible predicament trying to keep
The female, Baby, is the typical looking black and white border
collie. She's smart, beautiful, tenderhearted, and just a little bit
spiteful if you hurt her feelings. She's very offended by being scolded
or even by leaving her alone too long. She's watchful and is looking for
direction; she wants to please. She has a human soul....I know it! She
is NOT a barker. Baby is spayed, but needs her shots.
The male, Gromit, is a tri-colored, short haired border collie mix.
He's long, lean, and very athletic. He'll play fetch as long as anybody
is there to throw the ball. He's funny and goofy. He would LOVE to
please you if he only knew how. He's more timid and skittish than his
sister (unless there's a tennis ball involved). He IS a barker. Of the
two he would also be the one who has more nervous energy. He is NOT
neutered which may account for that. He also needs his shots.
I am able to get them up to date with their veterinarian care. I'm am
also flexible as far as when (if) you're able to take them. They have
both been kept indoors too long with very little run/work time. They
have the potential to be GREAT dogs for someone.
Both dogs mix well with other dogs, neither dog is food aggressive,
thankfully, and neither dog has aggression toward people. They DO bark
at 'strangers', i.e. anyone not me that enters the property, but don't
jump or act aggressively other than the barking (which can frighten some

MAX: A 4 year old
Border Collie mix, Max is super friendly happy guy - he loves to say
hello to everyone! He’s eager to learn what you want from him and takes
Max really enjoys a
good ball game but is also happy to sit by your side for attention.
He’s a little unskilled about how to interact with other dogs so loves
to rough-house and some dogs get overwhelmed. With the right dog, he
would be best buddies. Or, he could live alone, with someone who
provided an outlet for his mind. He gets along with cats, now living
them. He was abandoned with the people who now have him but one of them
has allergies so Max is living in the garage. They want to see him find
a better life. Max is neutered.
Please contact Kathy 631-219-7769
Max is living in the Hudson Valley NY area, in Walden NY, near Newburgh
TROY: A young BC mix, Troy is
a happy guy though a tad shy at first, meeting new people. Once he
relaxes, he's very eager to bond with someone. He's a sweet, good
natured guy having some worries being in the shelter. Troy gets
along with other dogs well and passed his temperament test done by a GHF
volunteer, though needs some reassurance to feel safe. He was a
stray in New York and is ready for adoption.
The shelter is open to the public 7-3pm Monday through Friday. The
shelter phone number is 315-343-1803.

Odessa is an eight year old
border collie/Aussie mix who is looking for a new home due to her owners'
divorce. Her coat was shaven shortly before these photos were taken
- she is a traditional long coated dog. She has lived in one
home since she was a pup, and needs a quiet home with a fenced yard.
Odessa has made up her own amusing herding game with a large ball, and
would love to play with a human companion. See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqWIRVJFtCI
Odessa is good with cats and very small dogs but is very uncomfortable
with dogs her size or larger. For more information on Odessa, please

Hi everyone, Unfortunately I need to reach out again regarding Nickey.
She is a 6yr old Aussie mix in need of a new home. Her owner was a
regular client of ours at Walkers Pet HoTail in Murrysville PA who can
no longer care for her due to failing health. She has asked us to care
for Nickey at our boarding facility and to find her a new home. A few
weeks ago Nickey was placed in a new home with another Aussie mix who
she absolutely adored but unfortunately was recently returned to us
because she was having issues sharing treats/toys/attention with her new
canine brother. She was an "only dog" for her whole life and is having a
hard time learning differently. For her safety and the safety of others
we are now looking for a home with no other dogs/cats where Nickey will
be an only pet and have all the love to herself. She is still fantastic
with other dogs and loves to play and socialize outside of her home
environment. She loves to play, swim, and work for treats. She is an
awesome girl and deserves another chance at a good home. She is
currently at Walkers and anyone interested in information can call.
Please share/send this so we can give Nickey another shot at a forever

Murphy was rescued from a
shelter in Tennessee and is currently being fostered by a family while he
waits for his forever home. He is a handsome and friendly Border Collie
mix that loves other dogs and is good with small children. He loves to
take long walks, is good on a leash, and likes to play fetch. He has all
vaccinations up to date and is neutered. He is well behaved but if he is
not exercised regularly he can be destructive. He also displayed some
guarding issues with other dogs with food and toys but after constant
exposure to his foster family's dog he has gotten over most of those
issues. He is loyal and obedient and deserves a good home with a patient
and active person or family. He will go in his crate when told and can
spend short amounts of time there, but prefers to be with people. At night
he likes to sleep at the foot of the bed. You have to be a real "dog
person" for a boy like Murphy, but for the right family or person he
will make an exceptional companion.
Though we live in Tennessee, if
someone is really interested in adopting Murphy, we can travel to
accommodate a meeting. Please contact "Roll Over Rescue" in Clarksville
931 302 4705. They have a re-homing fee of $150.
