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.

Phoebe and Dione

Two females about 4 Ĺ years old, adopted as puppies, littermates. Presumably some kind of herding dog mix. Energetic Fast runners Friendly Extremely intelligent and learn commands quickly. Both love attention from people. Both have basic commands like sit, down, off, leave it, touch and come. They have both been to Level 1 training class and worked with a professional trainer at home. They sometimes go to doggy daycare. They love to hike and go for walks/runs.

The black and brown sister can be leash reactive when passing other dogs. The light brown sister ignores other dogs on leash when passing other dogs. The light brown sister is more playful with other dogs than the black and brown sister. She likes her personal space and doesnít like it when other dogs are overly-attentive. Both will work for treats and love peanut butter bones. They do not need to be crated at all. They are used to being allowed on furniture. They are trained to an in-ground electric fence. They currently live with children and cats and other dogs.

The ideal home for these sweet girls would be one in which they would get plenty of physical and mental exercise. Ideally, we would like someone interested in teaching them agility exercises and tricks. In their current environment, they are bored without a job. They need a person or family with the time and financial means to continue their training and give them the physical and mental stimulation they need to live full lives. They do not play much at their age Ė they prefer to relax on a comfy couch when indoors. Outside they like to explore their environment but can be content to sit and observe their surroundings in nice weather.

Both are up-to-date on wellness checks and vaccines. Both are on heartworm and flea/tick preventative.

Located in the greater Philadelphia region. Please email adoptourdogs44@gmail.com . We will require a vet check, 3 personal references and the option to do a home visit if we feel itís necessary.

Kobe is a Border Collie mix and is about seven years old. He has a lovable spirit and energy. He deserves to be in a home where he is not often left alone (he has separation anxiety) and gets plenty of loving attention. His separation anxiety is exhibited through shaking and barking. Kobe would enjoy living in the suburbs or the country, so he could have plenty of access to the outdoors. Most of all Kobe needs patience and hugs.

He does like to enthusiastically welcome visitors with barking and jumping, but he eventually calms and becomes good friends with guests. Even though he is a gentle soul, Kobeís excitement would be paired best in a household without small children.

Our goal is to make sure Kobe is in a home where he is doted on and loved. If you would like to see if Kobe would be a good fit to join your family, please contact us and we can setup a time to discuss this possibility. Kobe is located in Philadelphia PA.

ABEL is a wonderful 4 year old border collie/lab mix. My family and I rescued Abel when he was less than 6 months. He has been our companion, pet, protector, since he and another rescue came home together. This is not where I would ever think this is where Abelís time with me would end.

Last year, I got divorced, she got the kids, I got the dogs. Since then, I have moved from the country like home I had and moved to the city. It is extremely difficult to admit, but it would be best for Abel to find a home where he would have more space to run and be free. He is a very smart dog, learning new traits and tricks quickly. He doesnít have the perfect border collie look, but has a lot of the things that make collies, well, collies. He is slightly less energetic than a full collie, but still loves to run and definitely has the herding tendency.

Abel gets along well with other dogs after the normal dog introductions. He starts off a little resistant, but after a few minutes of sniffing, he is fine. He is the same way with people. He loves attention and will let you pet him until your arm falls off. He is extremely faithful and will follow you wherever you may roam. He listens well and instantly comes when called.

I hope to find a home with outside space where he is free to roam, have a purpose, maybe even on a farm with sheep to herd. It will not be easy giving Abel up, but I feel it is necessary so he can have the life he deserves

He is in Manchester NH - contact Tom at tsheldon71@comcast.net
