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.

TROY: A young BC mix, Troy is a happy guy though a tad shy at first, meeting new people.  Once he relaxes, he's very eager to bond with someone.  He's a sweet, good natured guy having some worries being in the shelter.  Troy gets along with other dogs well and passed his temperament test done by a GHF volunteer, though needs some reassurance to feel safe.  He was a stray in New York and is ready for adoption.

The shelter is open to the public 7-3pm Monday through Friday.  The
shelter phone number is 315-343-1803.

Odessa is an eight year old border collie/Aussie mix who is looking for a new home due to her owners' divorce.  Her coat was shaven shortly before these photos were taken - she is a traditional long coated dog.   She has lived in one home since she was a pup, and needs a quiet home with a fenced yard.  Odessa has made up her own amusing herding game with a large ball, and would love to play with a human companion.  See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqWIRVJFtCI   Odessa is good with cats and very small dogs but is very uncomfortable with dogs her size or larger.  For more information on Odessa, please contact Dan at 315 480 5240.

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 anyones 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.

Murphy was rescued from a shelter in Tennessee and is currently being fostered by a family while he waits for his forever home. He is a handsome and friendly Border Collie mix that loves other dogs and is good with small children. He loves to take long walks, is good on a leash, and likes to play fetch. He has all vaccinations up to date and is neutered. He is well behaved but if he is not exercised regularly he can be destructive. He also displayed some guarding issues with other dogs with food and toys but after constant exposure to his foster family's dog he has gotten over most of those issues. He is loyal and obedient and deserves a good home with a patient and active person or family. He will go in his crate when told and can spend short amounts of time there, but prefers to be with people. At night he likes to sleep at the foot of the bed. You have to be a real "dog person" for a boy like Murphy, but for the right family or person he will make an exceptional companion. 
Though we live in Tennessee, if someone is really interested in adopting Murphy, we can travel to accommodate a meeting. Please contact "Roll Over Rescue" in Clarksville Tennessee at 
931 302 4705. They have a re-homing fee of $150.
