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.

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. 


Gracie Mae is a young, 5 year-old Australian Shepherd / Border Collie mix dog. She is cute, active, affectionate, intelligent, and fun! Grace has lived with one family since a puppy and has been well cared for, but doesn't always like apartment city living. We live in Rochester, NY.

She would thrive on a farm (with cattle or sheep), as a sport dog (with training), or with a lawn to run around in because she is a herding breed with lots of energy. She loves having a job, tricks, swimming, fetch, or even learning an obstacle course or games. Gracie enjoys playing, tug toys, stuffed animals, Greenie treats, walks, and running around, including off leash at the dog park. Gracie loves to give kisses and is very loving and affectionate. Grace graduated from level one dog obedience training. She is used to kids and action because she has lived in the city.
