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.

While stationed over seas, we got the sweet surprise of Izzie. Izzie is a 1 1/2 year old tender hearted Border Collie mix rescued from the streets of Kuwait. She came to us sick and afraid. With love and care, she has thrived. She does not hesitate to chase birds, grasshoppers, and flies. She loves to run, play, and snuggle close with all her family members (human, k9, and feline)! She enjoys snagging a smelly sock from the laundry bin and offering it to you so that a fun game of chase can ensue. She needs a patient family willing to help build her confidence in new situations. She is fearful of adults, at times. With kids, she has never met a stranger. She happily allows kids to pet and touch her tail, belly, paws, and ears. She is happy to plop herself down on the floor in the midst of my kids playing Legos or doing homework. She is a sensitive and intelligent girl that deserves more than another Middle Eastern assignment can offer her. We love Izzie and want to see her living the life she deserves with grass to run and roll in and clean air to breath. Izzie would enjoy an active family willing to give her the time and patience she needs to live a happy life here in the USA. She is fixed, up to date on all shots, and microchipped. She will bring you such joy and be a wonderful addition to your family!

Ray is a 1 year old rough coated Border Collie. If he’s not pure bred, he’s close. Ray is all BC in energy, intelligence, and favorite activities. He is always busy, never gets tired, and would do best with a full time job. Ray is a happy, fun loving guy. He loves to play with other dogs. He is very sweet with small or shy dogs. He gets down and army crawls towards them. When a dog likes to wrestle, chase, or play tug of war, Ray is all in. He’s the life of the party at the dog park.

Ray is super smart and learns fast. He knows many commands. He will obey “wait” and “stay” for treats, but we’re working on manners when people are eating. We are also working on puppy mouthing and jumping up, but making progress. He is strong willed and has only recently started to accept a human leader. Ray was stray in Tennessee and is in a foster home in upstate NY, sponsored by Homeward Bound. He is learning to trust and he loves to be around people.  He’s made great progress, for example, respects the baby gate even though he can easily jump it. It helps that he is a joyful lovable silly guy. Ray the Rockstar is extremely handsome, a truly magnificent dog.

Ray is cuddly on his own terms, which means morning snuggles, with tummy rubs welcome throughout the day. Ray is neutered, all shots up to date, house broken and crate trained. He will find things and hide them in his crate to chew up and swallow, so care must be taken to prevent this. Ray is probably going to be OK with dog savvy cats. He likes children, but requires supervision. He needs to be placed with another dog, preferably a BC who can teach him the ropes on a farm. In the right situation, Ray will be a loyal, hard working friend.
