Sweet Troy found his forever home with two other furry friends, Alex and Magic and a guardian who just loved his gentle, cuddly nature. She is excited to have Troy qualify to be a therapy dog since he is such a loving Border Collie plus plans to introduce him to agility to build his confidence and of course, lots of fun doggie play in the meantime. Troy loved her equally as much and was right at home racing around with her dogs in the field at the Farm. Troy now lives in PA.

TROY: A 1 year old Border Collie, Troy is a great candidate for a therapy dog because all he wants is to be with a person, giving wonderful sweet kisses and lots of affection. He is always the first one to check in with us en route out to the field for play so he can be sure to say hello. He is not high energy so would make a terrific companion but would be happiest with another dog for play. Troy is OK with cats. He is about 40 pounds, typical in size for the breed. Troy was one of the dogs surrendered from an Indian reservation in NY, along with 7 other Border Collies.

Sweet Jax found his forever home on Christmas Eve! He happily hopped up on the couch for lots of attention and didn't want to leave, quite obviously picking his new people just as they instantly fell in love with him. A real bundle of love and gentleness, he won their hearts just as he did ours here at the Farm. We are so thrilled for this sweet boy to share his good nature with loving guardians who understand the patience and care he will need throughout his life. Jax will have his own 32 acre NY farm to enjoy and now lives in PA, never to be left tied to a dog house again.

JAX: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie mix, Jax is a sweet, very very loving dog. He loves people and is very friendly with everyone. Jax has a challenge however which is blindness so he will need another dog in the home as a leader as well as patient guardians who understand his special needs. As with most blind dogs, his hearing and smell is acute so he compensates for the lack of sight and does so well, going in and out of doorways, eating, following rolling balls, jumping into the car and lots of other things. He needs to rely on another dog or a person for some direction and guidance at times of course. His ability to compensate is so good that the vet who examined was pretty sure he has blind for quite a long time. He is about 50 pounds, very similar in body shape to a retriever though with border collie markings. He has not yet been tested on cats. Jax and his brother, Jessee, were left tied to a dog house day and night until a neighbor stepped in to take them to a shelter which contacted the Farm for help. He came from western PA. No one realized that he could not see properly until they arrived here.
