|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

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.

BUDDY, a 2 yr old, 75lb
border collie mix .... if it wasn't for his size, you'd believe
he is a purebred border collie. He has lots of toy interest,
lots of energy, and lots of desire to please. Buddy gets long
with all dogs - changing his play style depending on the dog.
GHF volunteers met Buddy and concluded he has no temperament issues -
he takes treat with a soft mouth, has no handling issues, is engaging
and loves his tennis balls and frisbee. He does tend to jump on people
and still has many puppy mannerisms. Buddy will need a savvy
guardian, someone that will set boundaries for him, engage him in
obedience, and give him the exercise he needs. Buddy is looking
for a new home because he has "out grown" his current house
and he needs more activity then he's currently getting. An
agreement of neutering will be required for adoption. You can
get more information about Buddy from his 'furmom" Olga at email@example.com
He is located in Vineland NJ
Hi I'm Charley. I'm a border
collie mix and I think the other part is Skiperky. I am around 12 years
young and still raring to go. My mom runs me off lead for 4-6 miles
everyday rain or shine and that's part of the problem. We run on the canal
and I go faster in the woods. I usually run back to the house but
sometimes I like to go visit the neighbors. They don't mind if fact some
of them invite me in for a treat and a little visit. One couple, the
husband has me go in and wake up his wife from her nap. They're always
happy to see me. But sometimes I go to a house that doesn't know me and
animal control gets called. Then my mom gets in trouble and gets a
lecture. Animal control has been good to me too and sometimes just brings
me home. but lately I'm running short on they're good graces. I also like
to hang out on the back deck where I have my own lounge chair and lots of
comfy blankets. I like to sit for a while and watch the world go by but
then I get bored and want to go visiting. Mom put up a good fence but I'm
real good at finding little weak spots I can wiggle through. Then I like
to go over to the nearby hospital and visit the emergency room. Sometimes
I go to the senior citizen center and sometimes I go to the drug rehab
area where the young men are living. They let me in to play for a while
then call my mom to come pick me up. Her number is on my collar. I am so
smart I've learned how to work the automatic doors at the hospital
entrance and one day walked into the surgical center. I went woo woo woo
and sure enough somebody paid attention to me. I know all this is getting
my mom in trouble but I miss being around a lot of people. Men and little
kids are my favorite. When mom has a contractor come to the house to fix
something I hang out with the boys and keep an eye on their work. If mom
calls me away I hide behind one of the guys, maybe she won't notice. My
mom loves me and even cooks me a hamburger for dinner every night but I
think we would both be happier if I was in a home with a bunch of kids and
some land to run on. My mom is getting older and I'm not ha ha. I get
along with everybody, dogs and kids of all ages. I can be totally trusted
around babies and toddlers. I usually lay down and let them rub my belly.
I'm neutered and have all my shots. I jump into the bathtub on command and
heel offlead. I'm a great talker and woo woo woo usually means hurry
up with my dinner, or just pay attention to me. I'm not the best watch dog
because everybody is a potential friend. My mom will keep me until
somebody else will give me a better place so here is her info so you can
let her know. Leslie Gums. 2735 Ridgeway Ave., Rochester, NY,14626,
585-355-5971. Thanks for reading my profile and oh I'm good with cats too.
Merry Christmas Love Charley. Anything else you need to know give me a
Sam is a dear sweet boy who
was reported to the dog catcher and brought to a veterinary office back in
July when he was spotted wandering in a rural area near Syracuse, NY. He
is probably a border-collie black lab mix, basically healthy and fit,
about 6-7 years old, neutered, up-to-date with his shots, and very, very
nice. He has been well-cared for at sometime in the past: is respectful,
gentle, well mannered, knows basic commands, shakes hands, and appears to
get along with everyone, including other dogs and cats. He would be a
lovely companion in anyone’s home, but he will need someone willing to
take care of his skin allergies: he was missing a lot of hair when found
– it is now almost all grown back and expected to return in full, but he
will need special shampoos and medication for the rest of his life.
Please think about bringing this
good dog home – he is certain to more than repay any chance he is
given: you only have to look into his eyes to see how special he is. He can
be found at Lake Country Veterinary Clinic on Cherry Valley Turnpike
(Route 20), Marcellus, NY, phone 315-673-4858.
Border Collie Mix (West Seneca)
Duncan is the SWEETEST
Border Collie mix you will ever meet! Recently graying around his face,
don't let his10yrs of exploring here fool you! He is still as spritey as
ever, still loves to play, chase, go on walks, and people-please. He has
lots more time left, and lots more love to give.
He LOVES LOVES LOVES his people! He only gets sweeter and sweeter with
age, and those that get to know him all adore him. He usually has to warm
up to people, but his shyness has always been overcome by offering him
good food! At some point before he came to me he learned to smile, and
it's really funny when he tries to charm you by smiling to stay in your
lap a little longer!
I am having to find a new perfect home for Duncan. He is housebroken and
does well on a leash, and is neutered, UTD on shots until Feb 2013 &
fully vetted. Please LMK if you or someone you know would like to give
this great boy a great home.
I will gladly pay for all food and
any medical bills for him until he finds a permanent home.
Yellow Lab/Border Collie Mix
DOB: Feburary 13, 2009
Spayed and all up to date on vaccines (have all paperwork)
On Heartgard and Advantage each month.
She is Natural Balance dry dog food.
She is a high energy dog, SUPER cuddly and lovable.
She needs someone who will run her, let her run off-leash in a safe area,
and play fetch with her (this is her favorite game!)
She has lived with another dog and gets along with most dogs - I haven't
had a problem with that yet!
She has also lived with a cat and has gotten along with the cat just fine
Emma has been around small children, men, women, and has been fine around
She is crate trained (she would stay in her crate when I was working, and
would sleep in her crate as well - she LOVES her little space!) and potty
She has basic obedience training - brought her to a six week training
She knows "sit, stay, down, shake, come" and does NOT pull on
her leash when walking and running - she is VERY obedient to her
"family" and her "pack leader". She does very well
with training and LIKES to be trained. (I practice with her at least 3
times a week with her training she has learned.
She LOVES the water, the ocean, and any type of play
with water - she even LOVES bath time!! (She sometimes drinks water while
I am bathing her).
I adopted Emma from a Rescue myself, and I absolutely
adore and love her. I am moving to NYC, and I am afraid of her not being
able to get another space and exercise for her type of breed. I am moving
because I have to take a job that was offered to me, and I could not pass
up (especially in this economy). My LAST thing I wanted to do was to have
to give Emma up, as she is my child, but I also need to be able to further
my career and have income to support myself first. I know Emma will be
wonderful in a place that has a yard, and room for her to run around - as
that is what she is used to, and what she has had her whole life.
"Hello" to Molly! I’m a female Border Collie mix,
about three years old. I was with my family for around a year and a half.
Before that, the other family who had me was mean to me. So I’m a little
shy when I first meet people. But I’d never hurt anyone. I just need to
know you don’t mean me any harm. Then, I’ll sit by you, put my head on
your knee, and snuggle for as long as you want me to. I weigh 55lbs.
and I have a thick, fluffy coat that’s silky and shiny and snuggly as a
teddy bear’s. I live peacefully with cats and even love little Bruno the
Min-Pin. But I confess, I just can’t get along with pushy female dogs
who won’t show me respect.

LULU'S SAYS MEET ROCKET! Our
1 year old 38lb Border Collie boy with a happy playful spirit! Rocket
loves to play with other dogs who can keep up with his playful energy.
Rocket is great with children and adults and loves to be the center of
attention - he's a bit of a comedian....Rocket is doing great with
leash training and loves a brisk walk, or better yet, a run!
Rocket's foster mom says, "He is smart; very trainable. In
a few hours, has learned sit and does so 50% of time. Give us
another day and he will have it down pat. He loves to be close;
loves human contact but yet will stay by himself quietly. He
loves retrieving balls and playing with his cloth Frisbee. He could be
the next national Frisbee champion. He is a BC mix; more
BC than anything else. He loves running around in the backyard
and can cover the perimeter in no time flat. He will chase
small animals so we don't think he'd so well in a home with cats. He
loves to lie partially in your lap while chewing a chew treat; just
loves to be close. When he hears something new in the house, he
will cock his head right and left; it is so cute. He is
precious. " Rocket is hoping to find a forever home,
could it be with you? Rocket is up to date on vaccines,
neutered and heartworm negative. His adoption fee is $295.

LULU'S SAYS THANK YOU FOR ADOPTING, YOU ARE Rocket's HERO!
Corky needs a home- can you
help? Here's what his foster family said about him: "Corky is an
energetic, medium-sized pup who is friendly and affectionate, crate
trained and house-trained. He's a smart boy who has completed a basic
obedience course and learned the "sit/stay/down/come' cues. Corky
enjoys walks , playing ball in the yard, and being with his family. He'd
do best with an active person or couple who could take him on long walks
and hikes. However, small children make him nervous, so his ideal home
would be one with adults only )teenagers are okay, though). He's also not
a fan of having other dogs get too close, so he'd be perfect for folks who
just want to be a 'one-dog' family!
Corky was adopted at the age of 3
months, but his new home turned out to be a not-quite-perfect fit for him.
Unfortunately, we didn't have any open foster homes, so poor Corky had to
go to the boarding kennel :-( The good news is that our wonderful
"kennel walkers" have been working with him on obedience
training and leash-walking skills, and he's learned how to relax around
other dogs (as long as they don't get too close for comfort :-) He
has completed two dog-and-person 5K races, and he breezed by those
other dogs without batting an eye. (Did we mention that Corky is an
awesome jogging partner?) He has a lot of energy and with his
intelligence, athletic ability and speed, Corky would probably do well in
some type of canine sport like agility. He can be selective with men and
does best with those who ignore him and let Corky take his time warming up
to them. Now about 18 months old, Corky needs to get out of the
kennel and into a home with someone who can give him the attention he
needs and deserves.

quickly with some treats and playtime! Joe is housebroken and knows some
commands. He is 1 1/2 years old and would LOVE a fenced yard to run in. He

HARLEY is 8mo UTD neutered
border collie mix. He weighs 72lbs. He is housetrained and cratetrained.
He knows basic commands: sit, down, stay, wait, come, up, etc. He is well
socialized with both dogs and people. He goes to doggie daycare at least
twice a week and attends a two hour outddoor training session every
Sunday. He is shy of men and may initially bark, but once he's comfortable
he is very good. He is shy of men because the original owner's
boyfriend was abusive. He is very sweet and loves to cuddle. He needs a
new home quickly due to a move. He is in the central Massachusetts
Nancy Julian email@example.com
is an 8-year-old smooth-coated Border Collie mix.
is neutered and up-to date on his shots.
Hogan has had basic obedience training and knows “sit,” “down,”
“stay,” “wait,” “come” and “off.” He knows hand signals as
well as voice commands. Hogan
has been introduced to agility training.
He learns quickly and seems to enjoy the challenge.
He makes a great running partner.
Hogan’s leash manners are fair—he could use a brush-up on
walking politely. We walk him
with a “gentle leader” and this works well to address the issue of
pulling. He is
adopted Hogan from a family who gave him up because he did not
do well with children. We
have learned that Hogan needs a home without cats.
has the high prey drive that is typical of Border Collies and we have been
unable to convince him that the cat is a member of our family.
Hogan has been trained on an invisible fence that worked very well
for him in a country setting. However, due to his high prey drive a solid fence would be
required for his safety if there is traffic nearby. Hogan barks at strangers walking by and when a strange car
pulls in the driveway, but he is not an excessive barker. He is shy at first with people but warms up quickly.
Hogan can be possessive of food, toys and “his” people.
He will sit and wait until he is given the “okay” to eat.
He is very smart, willing to learn, and really is a sweet boy.
He loves to have his ears scratched or his belly rubbed.
ideal home for Hogan would be an experienced dog home without
children and without other animals.
Hogan is not a super high energy BC, he likes to go for
walks/run/agility class, but he also likes to hang out on the couch while
you watch TV, sleep at your feet while you are on the computer, or climb
in bed with you if you let him.
you think you would be a good fit for Hogan, please give us a call
