|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.
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
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.
