|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.

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
contact Dan at 315 480 5240.
Sam is a dear sweet boy who
was reported to the dog catcher and brought to a veterinary office back in
July when he was spotted wandering in a rural area near Syracuse, NY. He
is probably a border-collie black lab mix, basically healthy and fit,
about 6-7 years old, neutered, up-to-date with his shots, and very, very
nice. He has been well-cared for at sometime in the past: is respectful,
gentle, well mannered, knows basic commands, shakes hands, and appears to
get along with everyone, including other dogs and cats. He would be a
lovely companion in anyone’s home, but he will need someone willing to
take care of his skin allergies: he was missing a lot of hair when found
– it is now almost all grown back and expected to return in full, but he
will need special shampoos and medication for the rest of his life.
Please think about bringing this
good dog home – he is certain to more than repay any chance he is
given: you only have to look into his eyes to see how special he is. He can
be found at Lake Country Veterinary Clinic on Cherry Valley Turnpike
(Route 20), Marcellus, NY, phone 315-673-4858.

Hello, Nice to meet you! I'm Zeus
and I currently live at ACCT in Philadelphia. My family fell on hard times
and could no longer afford to take care of me, so I ended up here at the
shelter! It can be a noisy and hectic place for a dog but I'€™m trying
to keep my chin up and stay cheery. I need to practice how to walk calmly
on the leash , but my friends here think I'€™ll be easy to work with
because I am so eager to make my humans happy and I LOVE treats. I'€™ll
do anything for a treat or to hear how GOOD I am! I'm approximately 1 -2
years old, weighing in at 55 lbs. My favorite things to do are play fetch,
lay in the grass, and learn new tricks! Sometimes I get so excited to be
in the yard that all four paws leave the ground at once and I leap like a
frog! When a bird lands nearby, I drop down to the ground and I do a Navy
Seal crawl up to it. I haven't caught one yet, but I'm trying!
I love other dogs, but sometimes I
come off a bit too obnoxious for them so I need a little more exposure to
dogs so I can play it cool around them. I'm still very young
and have lots of energy, so I'd love to meet a new human who is looking
for a running/ hiking partner or someone who can give me a job to do -thats
when I'm happiest. After I burn off some energy, we could just hang out
and snuggle. What do you say? Us dogs here at ACCT don't have much time,
so if you can foster me, please email my human friend right away!
Wanna see some cute photos of me?
This is Joe a doberman/border
collie mix. Joe is a tall boy with lots of energy. ...perfect as a family
pet or jogging partner as he likes alot of activity around him. Joe loves
to play ball and carry things, what a great dog for agility training or
service dog. Friendly, but a little shy at first , this boy warms up
quickly with some treats and playtime! Joe is housebroken and knows some
commands. He is 1 1/2 years old and would LOVE a fenced yard to run in. He
would do best as the only dog since he's so into his people.
