|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.

Boogie is an absolute sweetheart who is
loyal, smart, and loves affection. He is a Border Collie and Lab mix and
is loved by everyone who knows him for his affectionate and cuddly
personality; he really is one of the sweetest companions you will ever
meet. As of Jan 2016, Boogie is 9.5 years old and completely healthy and
up to date with his vet visits. As an older dog, he actually makes an
ideal companion--he is neutered, potty trained, crate trained, leash
trained, and knows a dozen obedience commands. He's lived with and done
well with other adult dogs and cats. Boogie just wants to spend his
days with a loving human companion.
He is in Norwood NJ - contact Mary King -

Molly – McNab/Heeler mix born August 2012 in
KY. I bought her at a pet store in November 2012. All shots and vet
checkups are up to date. Spayed in 2013, no health issues. She gets a
little heat rash under her pink arm pits in the summer, but a little
cream calms it right down.
I fell in love with her adorable, loving
personality and since we have a boxer with a cropped tail, it was too
cute to have another tail less dog. I spoke with the breeder, who
explained that the heelers are herding dogs and the tails are cropped so
the sheep and goats don’t bite their tails.
Molly is the Alpha dog in the house, pushy to be
first out the door or get the treat that fell on the floor. I try
whenever possible to counter act that behavior and ask her to sit and
wait. The dogs eat at will and share food from the 2 bowls I put down.
If Molly is chewing on a bone and I don’t want her
to have it any longer, she lets me take the bone. No hesitation or
possessiveness or growl ever. If we are playing fetch, it is harder for
her to let go of the ball or toy, because she is very intense with the
play. So we taught her to sit and “leave it” so we can pick it up
without fighting for it.
Personality: Alert, curious, happy and always ready
for a command. Keen eye contact, always looking for a clue of what I am
going to do or ask next. Eager to please and she hoots at me and gives
me her paw if she really wants something. Mornings are fun and full of
yowling and excited squeaky yawns and pouncing around the mellow boxer
and the family, waiting to go out for a run and get fed.
Molly loves to chew marrow bones and likes to play
with her blankets. She does not touch anything that isn’t hers. Maybe a
pencil or a popsicle stick that fell on the floor, but she is not
destructive at all. She is an oral dog, licks anything she wants to know
more about and if you have exposed skin – she will sneak in a lick, or
if the boxer was out and about, she gets her ears and face licked as a
welcome back! Molly greets all dogs, kids, people, delivery guys like
UPS/Fed Ex with a friendly welcoming wag and wants to be pet. I don’t
recall if she has ever met a cat – we don’t have any in the
Off leash Molly listens to voice, whistle and hand
commands. She will run ahead and circle back to check on us. An open
palm “off” keeps her from jumping up and she sits when told, before
opening the door to go out or to put on a leash. She would be a
fantastic agility or Frisbee dog. She jumps in the air to catch a ball
and anticipates the direction and distance of the throw. We have an
invisible fence that enforces the boundries of the yard. Both dogs no
longer wear the collar, since they stay in the yard.
Restful time is spent lounging on her back with
feet in the air or snuggled with her blanket that she sometimes chews
on. She also likes to squeeze into the “bread bowl” with the boxer or
lay on top of her. She loves being outside and would be out there all
day if we were with her. She likes to be with people. She is not a
loner. We laugh daily at Molly’s antics and funny playtime pranks or the
way she talks back.
My job has changed from full time work at home, to
a minimum of 4 days on the road, and since my husband works long hours
at the office, I do not find it acceptable to keep Molly locked in the
house for 9+ hours a day. I just can’t do that to her and I won’t have
time to take her for the daily morning run. She is an outdoor dog that
loves to romp and play and be busy. She would be miserable and bored
inside all day. I am hoping her new home will be with a family on a farm
or with a family that hikes regularly, plays outside and has land for
her to be outside most of the day with other people or animals.
Gretel is an affectionate 2 year old Border
Collie and Flat Coated Retriever mix. She knows a slew of commands,
including "sit, stay, down, paw, roll over, go potty, go inside," and is
potty trained, spayed, and up to date on her vet visits. Gretel is
playful and has lots of energy, loves socializing with other dogs (big
and small!), and does really well with young children as well. Gretel
would flourish in a family environment where she can be given lots of
affection, and has a yard to run around in.
Gretel is in Queens, NY, but can
be dropped off to a loving family anywhere in the Northeast. Contact

and good natured. If you would like more information, contact

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, Kobe’s 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.
