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.

***********CAUTION***********
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.

Bosco is an 8 year old Australian Sheppard/Border Collie. He is medium size right around 55 lbs. He is neutered, micro chipped and up to date on all his shots. He is an excellent companion and a great Watch Dog. He has been raised by 2 adults, with no other pets in the home. He has also had with frequent visits from the Grandchildren. Unfortunately, as the Grandkids get older, busier, and louder, he has become unpredictable around them. Bosco would do great in a home with no children or other pets. A fenced in yard in a quiet neighborhood is a must. He does have a great deal of energy so anyone interested should be willing to spend time walking, playing catch, tug of war and hide and seek. He walks great on a leash. (The shorter the leash the better) On quiet evenings watching TV Bosco can be found curled up at your feet or resting comfortably on his blanket or next to you on the couch. Once the recliner goes up he turns into a 55 lb lap dog. Bosco has trained with some of the most qualified trainers in our area. Hes smart and knows many commands-come not being one of them. Since hes a herding dog he chases anything that moves and because of his personality everything is a game to him. He is highly motivated by treats Bosco loves water. He plays with the hose, swims in his Kidde pool and loves the river (on a leash) Bosco was not crate trained. He has had the entire house at his leisure. He sleeps on the floor next to me, occasionally on the bed. He is house trained but needs frequent potty breaks. When we got him my husband and I still were working, we left papers on the floor in the basement so there would be no accidents in the house. He still resorts to that when he needs to go and no one is home. Bosco is an anxious dog, stresses in unknown situations,( loud noises ,fireworks, strangers, mailman and delivery drivers, electric mowers and big trucks). Hes very alert to his surroundings and a great watchdog. Bosco is on a regular diet with no allergies. He eats Rachel Ray Chicken and Vegetables Dry food. He is a grazer and will not eat if you are not home. Many times he will go a day or two and then eat his entire bowl at once. His favorite snack is Milk Bone Biscuits. He also loves apples and corn on the cob. He drinks a TON of water. I will gladly provide his vets info, all his medical documentation as well as the names and numbers of the trainers who have worked with Bosco. If youre looking for a loyal dog that loves unconditionally than Bosco will fit right into your home. He's not only beautiful but has a great personality. If youre interested in this amazing dog you may contact me and set up an appointment to meet him. If you adopt this dog and are open to visitations or respite I would be more than glad to spend time with him. I would also consider covering his vet visits. Serious Inquiries only since I do not make this decision lightly and will make sure where ever he goes it is going to be the perfect home for him. I will be asking for references and I WILL be checking them. I will insist on a home visit before making my decision. Im so sure youre going to love him once you meet him that If for any reason you decide hes not the right fit for you I will gladly take him back and continue to look for the perfect family for him. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions I can be reached by phone or e-mail
