|The following border
collies mixes are available through other agencies or as independent
placements by owners. The adoption of the dogs
listed below will be handled by the individual home or shelter listed in
the dog's bio. Glen Highland Farm
is available to assist if needed. For more information about these
dogs, please use the contact information provided with each dog.
||Glen Highland Farm
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.

||We have a 10 month old wonderful Border Collie mix. She
originated from a shelter in SC. She was placed in a home and they
did not take care of her needs. She is back at the shelter. She is
great with other dogs, loves people. She is learning manners and
eager to please.
I'm in this field a very long time and I've learned to cut to the
chase. She needs to be with BC ppl to get where she needs to be
mentally, physically and emotionally.

rescued Paws at the age of six months from
a high kill shelter in Georgia and
have had her for over a year.
She will be two in July 2018.
At the moment we got her, she was
very loving and extremely playful.
She loved going on walks and on an
occasional run. She has
demonstrated how very intelligent she was at the start and picked up
on the house training right away.
She worked well with my three little
children while they insisted on training her in sitting, laying down
and standing up. She would tell us when she had to go to the bathroom by sitting by the
front door and would come find us when she really had to go.
the course of the last five months, her behavior began to change and
she started playing rough with the children. Most of the time she
plays nicely with the children, however, her behavior would change
in an instant. Paws has a lot of love to give. She needs a home
without children where she can really be herself. Paws is all up to
date on her shots, spayed and we have all of her medical records.
deserves a home where her owners can strictly focus their time and
attention on her. I know Paws is a great dog and I refuse to put
her into a shelter. I love her with all of my heart and want to see
her with a good family

We are looking for a new home for our female, beautiful border
collie mixed breed dog, Bella. She is 1.5 years old and very
healthy, up to date with vaccines and spayed. She is very
intelligent, loyal and affectionate. She loves to be outdoors, and
likes to work and be active, patrolling the land constantly. She is
very alert, fast and amazing at keeping the property safe, chasing
away all deer, rabbits, groundhogs, catching rodents, and other
small animals. She will check our property first thing in the
morning, running the perimeter to find anything out of place, always
eager to make sure that everything is fine. Bella is house trained.
We have an invisible fence and she likes to run free within the
Unfortunately, she has anxiety issues and doesn't tolerate visitors
on the property. She will bark aggressively, and tries to bite
ankles. We had a dog trainer who worked with her and she was doing
better for a while, but with our newborn in the home, she is more
She does fine with people, however, off the property. When we take
her to the vet, for example, she is scared but not aggressive. She
gets along great with our kids and our large breed male dog, not so
well with one of our cats.
She would be great for someone who has experience with dogs, who
understands high energy working dogs and has dealt with anxiety and
aggressive behaviors. Having a yard to run in is a must, and she
would be excellent on a farm where she can work, and run all she
The only reason we are looking to rehome her is because we just now
had a baby and feel concerned about safety, even though she has not
shown any visible signs of aggression. It is a very difficult
decision for us. We had her since she was a puppy and want to find
her a right home where she will be loved and appreciated. Thank you.

|This is Kiff or Kiffy, a lover who
pretends to be a fighter. At 1 1/2 he is the sweetest dog you'll
ever meet and is quick to hop up in your lap for a cuddle or sleep
curled up by your feet. Loves fetch so much it's almost a
stereotype. He needs someone who can love him 25/8! The reason we
have to put him up to rehome is that he needs a more available and
experience trainer to bring out the best in him. Kiff has severe
anxiety (for which he is medicated); he cannot be left alone and
will not tolerate being in a crate for more than a few minutes. He
is not aggressive, but lacks any semblance of self-control (y'know,
like a dog). Kiff can tolerate well-mannered dogs with a slow
introduction but cannot be trusted around small animals. So, cannot
live with cats. While Kiff has never met a person he didn't like, he
can get overexcited easily and so should not live in a home with
children. Kiff has made progress with crate training, is fully house
trained (he's never had an accident), walks well on a leash, and
loves to go on hikes. Kiff will do best in an experienced home with
someone who has plenty of time to spend working and playing with
this wonderful pup. If you feel experienced enough to save this pup,
please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. We are
willing to travel to meet prospective owners. More than anything, we
want this dog to get into the forever home he deserves!

||Cooper is 12
years old but still full of life. He LOVES playing fetch, going for
hikes, and swimming in rivers. He doesn't have any major medical
issues, aside from some mild arthritis in his shoulders. He loves
people, giving them very enthusiastic greetings when he meets them,
and sleeping at their feet once he's gotten friendly with them. He
lived with another dog for about ten years and they got along fine,
and he's had some good dog friends over the years, but Cooper isn't
always great with new dogs that he meets, especially on-leash.
Cooper is a sweet, lovable, and very playful dog, but he can be
challenging, too. He has worked with
trainers over the years, but taking him for walks is still extremely
difficult because he's very reactive to bikes and other dogs on
leash. His Border Collie instincts still kick in, too, and he
sometimes tries to 'herd' people if they cross his path too quickly.
Because of this, he probably wouldn't be great in a house with kids.
He is very responsive to commands and training, but needs a lot of
consistency and follow-through to keep him on track. Overall, Cooper
would make a great dog for someone who could give him lots of play
time, consistent discipline, and a fairly quiet home.
