Over the past 16 years, we’ve found Suburbans work great for rescue since handling multiple-dogs is easy with 3-4 crates in the back and still room for one more dog riding loose. Our current vehicles are well traveled: the 2003 has almost 250,000 miles on it; the 2004 is closing in on 180,000. We’re now hoping to find another soon!!

Please share our SUBURBAN PLEA! Maybe you or someone you know has a used Suburban that could help us transport Border Collies!!!! The donation of a vehicle is totally tax deductible.

Jill Summary:
other bc friends preferred
 - sport potential


JILL: A petite 4 month old Border Collie pup, little Jill doesn’t think of herself as little at all…she’s ready to tell adult dogs what she thinks if they take her toy or bone…"Miss Vocal” - she has a way of getting her message across! Watching this tiny powerhouse let her wishes be known, tells us she’s going to be a classic female BC, in charge! Of course right now she’s blending with adult dogs and learning how things go amongst herding dogs. She is super smart, focused and eager to bond with a person. She absolutely is crazy for toy play with lots of focus. A lovely thinker, she’s going to be a fun friend and potential sport dog for someone! Jill is about 15 pounds, relinquished due to a family situation where toddlers needed the most attention. She loves to cuddle and sweetly snuggle by your side as well as race full speed for her toys!

Gideon Summary:
other friend(s) REQUIRED


Special thanks to Pegg Fuller for transporting him to the Farm.

GIDEON: An 8 month old Border Collie mix, Gideon is quite the charmer, a happy, good-natured, say hello to everyone kind of guy, super cute! He’s easy going and playful, loving other dogs that want to race and chase but he also loves hugs and cuddles just as much, a great combination. Gideon has lots of obedience skills already, is super eager to please and is very food oriented so would be fun to teach new activities. We’d like him to have a canine pal since the play is such a rewarding outlet for Gideon. He is about 35 pounds and best with dog savvy cats since he will chase. His previous NJ guardian had a change in work and knew leaving him home 10-12 hours a day was not ideal so surrendered him to GHF.

 TYE found the ideal life perfect for him - with a canine pal who loves to chase, wrestle and play endlessly - and guardians who adore BC’s and felt he was just the cutest guy, a great fit for them and their new girl, Skye! So Tye and Skye will be with them 24/7 since they work from home plus they all head off to a nearby 400 acre farm for lots of dog play which these two pals will love! This gentle boy has the puppy qualities that made this match just fabulous to watch! A couple days in the overnight Getaway camp, gave these two plenty of time to bond, even turning the RV into their ‘home’, on duty together watching life at the Farm!

TYE: A petite 1 year old Border Collie, Tye is a very, very sweet guy who enjoys attention from everyone around him. He is eager to join in the action and very good natured, up for a big cuddle or a race around exploring outside. Tye is not as intense as some dogs so would enjoy companionship and possibly another canine pal. He was a stray in Ohio who thankfully made it to a shelter and then, GHF.

Jac Summary:
other bc friends required
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - NO cats


Special thanks to Christel Devlin & Pegg Fuller for transporting him to the Farm.

JAC: A petite 1 yr old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Jac is a great boy, really good natured. He has a ton of energy to race and chase and loves to retrieve, happily playing with anyone who will toss a ball his way. He also loves other Border Collies and would be happiest with another BC pal to make up herding games. A super friendly boy, he’s also curious, smart and good natured, quite the cuddle bug. He is not too keen on other breeds of dogs though so would do best in a more rural setting not a densely populated neighborhood with lots of dogs. It is not uncommon for herding dogs to have difficulties interacting with non-herding dogs. A PA dog lover stepped in to get him out of a bad situation where he was being tied outside, no shelter, food or water. Clearly, she did a great thing for this lucky boy who will now have the life he so deserves! He is about 35 pounds and not good with cats and Jac loves to swim.

Hope Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED

 - more rural setting required


Hope's Angel
-In Loving Memory of Chloe
Susan Hunt
HOPE: A 1 year old Border Collie, Hope is a sweet girl with so much love to give and very affectionate, too. Tending toward the shy side, it’s toy play that brings her right out of her shell. She is very bright, observant and full of energy. Hope is really enjoying the country setting of the Farm happy to go on hikes off leash with great recall to return.  She is really blossoming and will do best in a life with a patient, nurturing person who understands the nature of the breed. A simpler life with her yard, fun toy play and some hiking would be great for Hope since she has a tendency to over-worry and react to new situations and settings.  Hope was bred to chase geese but showed little interest at this age so she was surrendered to GHF.  She is about 20 pounds and good with cats.

Rion Summary:
adult home

 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - bc friend required


Rion's Angels
Loving memory of Dudley, Sue & Bob Strange
-Stacey Greenberg, Seelie, Gryphon & Merlin (GHF Alum)

RION: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Rion is a hoot. He loves his toys, tossing them in the air, then getting the zoomies in high speed circles as he plays a version of ‘keep-away’…he is hilarious. Rion is also a sweetheart, happy to be up in your lap and right in your face for non-stop kisses. He is highly enthusiastic saying hello to people with a full leap almost into your arms!Rion really loves to be with other dogs so we want him to have a BC buddy in his new home. He does well with a group of dogs, too, so could join a pack easily.  He’s a young boy with lots of energy that is now being channeled productively.  He is becoming more focused and attentive, eager to please.  His previously chaotic lifestyle of living with 9 kids, from 5 months to age 20, is fading away and a more balanced BC is emerging.  Rion is doing really well but will need continued help on the OCD behaviors. He will only be placed in a very BC savvy home. He is fine with cats and about 40 pounds.

Special thanks to Rosie Sutherland for opening her home to foster Rion.

 LUCY won the heart of her new FurMom when she met her earlier this year when she was volunteering at GHF. The timing was finally right this summer to come back to adopt and it is Lucy that again caught her attention so she’s heading off to their new life together. Lucy will have a BC buddy and two small canine pals, too but most importantly, her new guardian loves to train and challenge her dogs with lots of activities to do, shaping their potential in all kinds of ways. Lucy will absolutely thrive under her care and we know their heartfelt connection will bring great joy to both of them. Lucy spent time on vacation at GHF with her and even learned to swim! She’s heading off to Canada for a lifetime that suits her perfectly.

LUCY: A petite 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Lucy is a sweet, focused, curious girl, very classic in her energy needs! She loves to play with other dogs and toys, equally. She is smart as a whip and loves learning of any kind. Quite a cuddler, she’s extremely good natured. Lucy adjusts easily to new situations and will really blossom in the right hands, with someone understanding her emotional, mental and physical needs. We’d like to give her a BC buddy since she’s so happy that way. Lucy is really wonderful with dogs! Lucy also has an interest in cars so needs to be in a rural setting to minimize the stimulation. She can jump a short fence easily so needs 6 feet or over ideally or an invisible fence. She is good with cats and about 35 pounds. Lucy was relinquished to GHF directly since her guardian knew she needed more than she could give her.

Pike Summary:
 - solo dog
 - fenced yard required
 - NO cats


Special thanks to transporter Susan Myers for making  a long trip to the Farm with Pike

Pike's Angels
-Beat Hellstern & Ziggy

PIKE: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Pike is a serious toy boy and loves the interaction of the game plus he will entertain himself, happily tossing the toy in the air for lots of fun! He is a very smart, focused boy who is eager to please and responds easily to direction. Pike clearly focuses on a person for guidance and will bond quickly. He is a sweet, friendly guy who would be happy as a solo dog since he connects so well with people. He is not very good with other dogs so a fenced yard would be best for him. Pike will do best with a BC savvy guardian who understands how intelligent he is and satisfies his desire to be someone’s companion. He is about 40 pounds and not good with cats.

Many times at GHF, we see amazing bonds happen instantly where a person and a dog just click and it’s so crystal clear that they belong together…Suke met his new FurMom and within minutes, it was fantastic. This sweet boy and this lovely woman joined as real friends, heart to heart, so off he went to a life where he’ll be with her 24/7. He’ll be going to the campus to work with students, enjoy plenty of daily hiking and swimming and most importantly, be her true friend…exactly what he deserved as did she! We’re so happy to be a part of this special connection. Suke now lives in Massachusetts.

SUKE (SASUKE): A 2 year old Border Collie/Cattle dog mix, Suke is petite little guy, really quite adorable and engaged with his new freedom at the Farm. He’s quickly coming to life, a fast ball boy who loves to run and race around. He’s very observant, clearly a thinker sorting out everything around him. Suke is a cuddler too and finding everyone here to be his good pal instantly. This outgoing boy spent the past few months at a vet office while a custody battle waged at home with an allergic child who needed separation from the dog. He lived as part of the family up until recently but has never had a fenced space to really enjoy. Life now is clearly on the upswing for this sweet guy. He is good with cats and about 30 pounds. His previous PA guardian surrendered him to GHF, knowing he deserved something better.

Jersie Summary:
 - canine friend required

 - fenced yard REQUIRED


Jersie's Angel
-Deb Meyers, Twist, BC rescue
-Mike & Kathy Hoar, Zach & Tierney

JERSIE: A very petite 2 year old Border Collie, Jersie is a loving girl who adores her person and also loves other dogs, truly joining multiple dogs easily for racing and chasing games! She’s adorable to watch as she happily joins in. Jersie will need another canine friend as a ‘mentor dog’ to help her when meeting strangers as she gets nervous. She barks at people and needs reassurance from the person that is hers, so she can accept someone new. Her fears are substantial enough that she will need management in any new home. She’s been learning, step by step, how to handle the real world, in a foster home and has flourished with attention, guidance and love. Jersie will need a patient savvy adopter who can continue teaching her to relax and properly enjoy meeting new people. A simpler life with her own yard, people she knows and dog pals, would be ideal. Jersie was chained outside by someone breeding Border Collies so had a more limited experience of meeting people. She is about 30 pounds and not yet tested on cats. She is being fostered in Pa and can be seen there or at GHF.

Special thanks Cindy Tier and family for opening their home to Jersie

Gus Summary:
solo dog

 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - NO cats


Special thanks to Mary Beggs & Jeff Beck who transported Gus safely to GHF.

Gus' Angels
-Geoff & Chris Phillips & Jesse
GUS: A 2 year old Border Collie, Gus is a powerhouse BC, with tons of energy and plenty of drive to do what he wants. He is a friendly guy who loves attention but most of all, he needs a real task to carry out, like lots of toy play. Gus excels at learning and is exuberant about toys. A mentally smart boy, he will need a seasoned BC person who understands that this boy will make up his own work unless stimulated properly. Gus is a great BC, in the right hands. Loving, affectionate and eager to please, he is also extremely responsive to someone who is teaching him new activities. He is not good with other dogs and is not good with cats. He came to GHF from a NY farm where he was allowed to work sheep, on his own. The elderly guardians could not manage he or the other BC, both surrendered to GHF. Gus will only be placed in a fenced yard with a BC savvy adopter. He is 50 pounds, a bit larger than the standard size.

Julee Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - OK with dog savvy cats


Special thanks to our transporters Janine and Dan Choplick, Sue Myers, Scottie Burkhalter and Abby Mack, and Peter Cowan and Katherine Mario…lotsa love for Julee

Julee's Angels
-Tracey Akitt In memory of Glitch
-Mike & Kathy Hoar, Tierney, and Zach (GHF Alumni)

JULEE: A petite 2 year old Border Collie mix, Julee is quite an athlete - she is fast, agile and focused and easily comes off the ground, all four feet, clearly a good frisbee candidate! She loves toys and will happily play with anything at any moment, even tossing them for her own enjoyment. She is high energy and very eager to please, offering sits and downs and anything she can think of to earn a treat. Clearly a very smart girl, she would do well with an active, engaged home and enjoy sports like agility. Julee is absolutely delightful, fun and friendly and eager to be in the middle of everything with everyone! She is about 35 pounds and is OK with dog savvy cats and Julee loves to swim. She has great recall on trails and would be a fabulous hiking partner.

Sweet ROXY found exactly the right guardians who are kind-hearted and loving, happy to share their hearts with this sensitive girl. They’d been waiting for the right BC mix to come to GHF and soon as they saw her, they wanted to visit GHF. Within moments of their hellos, they were smitten and so was Roxy. An overnight together before heading home to Canada, and Roxy decided she was THEIR girl for sure! She’ll have a great life with lots of land to explore and even a cabin on the water where she’ll go boating, swimming and hiking every summer!

ROXY: A petite 2 year old Border Collie mix, Roxy is a sweetheart, friendly and good natured. A gentle natured girl, she takes time to get to know you and then lets loose with the zoomies, racing around like a pup, happy as can be - adorable to see! She is a thoughtful dog and likes to observe what’s going on around her, like most female bc’s, soaking in what everything means. She loves to cuddle and enjoys her toys but is more easy going than a purebred. She lived with her littermate brother and another small dog in the home but does best as a solo dog so she was relinquished to GHF. She lived in one home since a pup and is best with dog savvy cats. She is about 35 pounds. She is trained on the invisible fence.

LEA is from the Indiana confiscation (click here)
She will only be placed:
 - with a bc savvy adopter due to her skittish nature
 - in an adult ONLY home
 - fenced yard is REQUIRED
 - solo dog OK


Lea's Angels
-Martha & Kevin LaCroix & GHF alum Bailie

LEA: A petite 3 yr old Border Collie, Lea is gorgeous. She is so smart and has grown by leaps and bounds. She now plays with toys and really enjoys a good cuddle by your side in bed or on the couch. Lea now goes up to new people for treats and happily investigates everything around her.  She’s made great strides to becoming a happier dog and truly wants a person to call her own.  She is very good with other dogs and loves to herd them though inside, does best with one other BC, usually male, so she doesn’t feel the need to control a big gang of dogs inside.  A confident, mentor dog would be ideal for her continued growth. Lea has a lovely, gentle nature and is really blossoming, quickly enjoying her new life. She is about 30 pounds and is good with cats. Lea, like her other friends from a breeder in Indiana, lived a horrible life with no appropriate care, confined in a small indoor area.  She will need a smaller life with her own yard, dog friend and patient, caring guardians. 

Haley Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - solo dog
 - more rural home setting
 - NO cats


Haley's Angels
-Mary Jean Byrne-Maisto, Donato & Nina, GHF alums
-"Two hearts connected - Susie and Lexi"

HALEY: A 3 year old Border Collie, Haley is a gorgeous girl with lots of energy to race and chase and play! She’s active like any BC this age and she wants something to DO so will need a BC savvy guardian who understands her needs. She loves people and bonds quickly, eager to be with her person, side by side for whatever activities can be done together. Haley is focused and smart and very observant, a delightfully confident girl. She keeps tabs on everything around, including cars so will need to live in a more rural setting, with a fenced yard where traffic is not in sight. She is a strong female so likely best as a solo dog. She is not good with cats and Haley is about 40 pounds. She came to GHF from a PA shelter, moved north after having puppies.

Special thanks to Ellen Simcik, Joanne Cook, Tony & Debbie Grassi, Donnie Ross and Erica Snyder for transporting Haley to GHF

 MAC, a 3 year old Border Collie has been enjoying herding games with other BC’s in a temporary foster setting while waiting for space to open at GHF. However, lucky for him a former GHF adopter was hoping to add another BC to their lives and upon meeting him, felt he would fit perfectly. Mac has gone off to start his new life, happily excited for all the action to start.

CARSON & ZOEY need angels -   click here to learn more
Carson and Zoey Summary:
 - great together


Special thanks to Paula Brainard and her daughter, Austen, for making the long haul from southern MD to get this trio into rescue at GHF.

CARSON, age 4 & ZOEY, age 5, are clearly best buddies. Their relationship is terrific with balanced toy play and racing, chasing games they both clearly love! While they could be adopted separately, we want for them to find a home together. They’d be great for off leash hikes and really enjoy an active life, including swimming! They make a great pair since they nicely complement each other - one more easy going and one more active, a really nice blend. Carson & Zoey are both super friendly, outgoing and love everyone, truly a friend to all! Carson will happily drape himself over your lap for belly rubs while Zoey finds another ball for a quick toss. She is affectionate too but her “work” ethic is all BC! Both settle well inside and enjoy entertaining each other, making up toy games. He is about 50 pounds, carrying a bit of extra weight since they were free fed. He’s going to trim up easily. She is about 40 pounds and both are good with cats. This duo has another pal, Bentley, all given up due to a separation but he’s extremely high energy so would benefit from more focused concentration on his needs.

Bentley Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - dog savvy cats
 - canine friends or solo dog


Bentley's Angels
Brian & Fiona Roberto, in memory of “Tilly"
BENTLEY: A 5 year old Border Collie, Bentley is an amazing athlete - he is ALL BC and ALL drive - really super fast chasing a ball and eager to play endlessly!  Bentley needs a savvy person who understands the mental and physical nature of this boy as well as his emotional needs. He’s quite a cuddler and super friendly with everyone but he is one VERY active BC.  He lived with Carson & Zoey all his life, relinquished to GHF due to a separation. He was a beloved family member of his male guardian who sadly could no longer care for any of the dogs. Bentley is 50 pounds, carrying some extra weight but that will knock off easily. He is good with dog savvy cats and could be happy as a solo dog or with others.  He is a bit camera shy so we’ll have better pictures as soon as we can.

Special thanks to Paula Brainard and her daughter, Austen, who drove 12 hours to get this trio to safety in rescue at GHF.

PATCH  needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Patch Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - NO cats


Special thanks to Meg Flynn & Dennis & Sandy Sprole for transporting him to GHF.
PATCH: A 6 year old Border Collie, Patch is a gentle, shy boy, unsure about new settings and new people so will need a patient guardian to help him blossom and trust. He is coming out of his shell at GHF and soliciting attention from people, very sweet and very gentle. He will do best in a quieter home without a lot of social activity or chaos. He’s a super sweet boy and will likely always be a bit calm and withdrawn though very loving once he knows you. Patch is not a toy dog, he’s more of a companion, happy to be by your side as you become his person and make him feel safe. Patch lived with other farm animals- chickens, pigs, goats and barn cats - and was fine with all of them but is not good with cats in the house. He is about 45 pounds. Patch and his mother, Magg, were surrendered to GHF due to lifestyle changes with the former NY guardian. 

Rhyn Summary:
 - fenced yard required


One of the ways RHYN kept himself busy while recovering in the Farmhouse Sanctuary was cat watching…Blu, our resident test cat knew he really meant no harm so quietly tolerated that BC stare!

-Sue and Dave Luther, in honor of Mohegan

-Erin Islo
RHYN: A 6 year old Border Collie, Rhyn has blossomed since his arrival and is strong and ready for a new life! We are so incredibly happy to see this boy fully recovered and now ready for action! He loves to check out everything going on at the Farm and is so curious to say hello to everyone, a super friendly boy. He is also fine with other dogs though we feel happiest as the solo dog where he can get all the attention being the love-bug he is! Rhyn would enjoy being someone’s special friend, a real companion to go everywhere. He’s easy going and not as intense as other BC’s so slides into new situations well. He does have some interest in traffic so needs to be off the main road or that stimulation will create more of an obsession which is just slight now. He is great with cats and about 55 pounds. Now that he’s back to himself, we’re going to provide more exercise for him to trim up a bit. Soon as his hair grows back fully, we’ll have some new pictures to show off his handsome self!!

Rhyn came to GHF 4/28 through an unfortunate event in a Virginia home where the other dog attacked him under the porch, inflicting bad wounds. The previous guardian had no funds to handle his needs so he was surrendered. We are deeply appreciative of all the support for his medical care which has allowed us to see this transformation happily unfold. The extraordinary costs were covered by kind, loving people who stepped up for this very wonderful Border Collie.

Thank you!

Maggie Summary:
 - solo dog home
- fenced yard required
 - NO cats


Maggie's Angels
Josh, Sharron, Patty & Oliver
MAGGIE: A 7 year old Border Collie, Maggie is gorgeous, just a classic, beautiful girl. She is also extremely sweet with people and eager to bond.  She wants to be right by your side and happily joins you in whatever you are doing.  She is easy going and good natured, a pleasure to be with.  Maggie also loves the ball and will play some games but isn’t over the top to do it all the time. A real cuddle-bug, she is the classic companion! She was a stray in PA, taken in by dog lovers who had no means to meet her needs so contacted GHF. She’s spent the last year living in a garage as the family attempted to help her but then realized she deserved more. She is not good with cats and about 50 pounds, trimming up quickly with more exercise here. Maggie is best as a solo dog since she can be defensive when dogs are in her space, very typical of many female BC’s.

Jojo Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - solo dog


Special thanks to Leslie Pileggi who stepped in to help her friend find safe haven for JoJo.
JoJo Angels
Mary & Vic Work in memory of Jo-Jo and Molly
JOJO: A 7 year old Border Collie mix, JoJo is loving life at the Farm, one of the happiest more joyful dogs here! She is exploring the fields with great abandon happy to be off her tie out and free to run and explore and truly, unwind. She’s a super sweet, people oriented girl who was a beloved family member til her NY guardian became very ill. JoJo’s carrying a lot of extra weight that we’ll work to help her knock off so she can enjoy being more athletic however she is fast, fast, fast, even now. This girl loves to run!! She is also quite a love-bug and will follow you wherever you go, hoping to be your friend. JoJo is good with cats. She lived in one home since a pup and will happily return to being an important companion in someone’s life again

Sammi Summary:
 - invisible fence trained
 - NO cats
 - solo dog


Sammi's Angel
Roxanne Hendrix
SAMMI: A 7 year old Border Collie, Sammi is focused on the action around her, very curious about everything, a classic female ‘superviser’, clearly a smart, smart girl! She is very sweet and attentive to anyone around her, eager to please and bonds easily. Sammi also loves her ball play and will happily retrieve for anyone willing to toss a ball. Sammi has the classic BC brains and beauty! She was surrendered to GHF along with Molly, due to the death of her PA guardian. She is not good with cats and about 40 pounds. Sammi is trained on the invisible fence. Sammi is a lead female so we’d like to allow her to be a solo dog in her new life.

Magg Summary:
 - adult home
 - rural setting
 - solo dog
 - NO cats


Special thanks to Meg Flynn and Dennis & Sandy Sprole for getting her to GHF.

Magg's Angels
The Fitzgerald Family, in honor of the heroes at GHF
MAGG: An 8 year old Border Collie, Magg is a very thoughtful girl, amazing to watch as she understands the world around her, making sense of everything step by step. She is so incredibly smart and tuned into having a human relationship, she literally listens all the time, eager to please with her every move. Magg lived on a farm and though she didn’t do any herding work, she understands the bond between a human and dog as she was the beloved companion there and took her role seriously. Magg loves attention and a good head scratch, nudging your hand for more, but she’d be most thrilled to accompany her person on hikes or wherever they go, side by side! Magg is flourishing at GHF, returning to great health with good nutrition and loving care, looking gorgeous now and has a spunk back in her step. Magg will be happiest in an adult home and a more rural setting. She is about 40 pounds and not good with cats. Magg lived with a horrible flea allergy so lost a great deal of hair on her back which is slowly growing back. Due to home changes, Magg and her son, Patch, were both relinquished to GHF.

Daisy Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - NO cats
 - solo dog


Special thanks to transporters Tom Kokoska, Deb & Harry Johnson, and Sue Myers for getting Daisy safely to the Farm
Daisy's Angels
-Leela & Rudy, Karen & Clem Arrison
-Elaine Cave
-Brenda Burns
-Jeff & Kelley Hoffman

DAISY: A petite 8 year old Border Collie mix, Daisy has won all our hearts with her charming, funny nature! This little girl has a huge personality - she stands upright like a little circus dog, races around full-speed, curious about everything and barks to let us know she counts - clearly this Daisy girl has a ton of life in her and she is ready to enjoy everything around her. She is super sweet, just enjoying whatever new goodies come her way now! By far one of the most unique girls ever to come to GHF, she really needs her person to have a great sense of humor cause Daisy leaves everyone chuckling with her antics. She is about 30 pounds and is not good with cats. Thanks to a dog loving neighbor, Daisy is safe and in rescue rather than being tied out to a dog house. She has not interacted with many dogs so is best as a solo dog.


8 year old DAISY has a big job at the Farm, one she is very happy to carry out.. she is the canine office monitor!  While she’s waiting for her special person to show up and take her home, we knew she’d love being the social butterfly of the GHF office, keeping track of everyone in and out all day!

She is an adorable addition for our workers Hollie, Jay and Kory to hang with as well as every other visitor who opens that door! Only downside to Miss Daisy is her desk hopping talent since she is determined to see out all the windows!!!  Whoever adopts this wonderful girl will have a lifetime of love! She is good therapy, sharing her sweetness and hilarious antics.

DERBIE  needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Derbie Summary:
- fenced yard required


Special thanks to Peg Fuller for transporting him to GHF.
DERBIE: A 9 year old Border Collie, Derbie (formerly Herbie) is a smart boy, quite observant about all that’s going on around him in this new situation at the Farm. He’s done really well sorting out such a big change and is now starting to blossom, showing some of his herding drive and more outgoing nature. He is a very thoughtful Border Collie and will do best with a guardian who understands his intelligent nature. He is a sweet guy who loves attention and also enjoys entertaining himself with his toys. Derbie lived with 4 children since a pup (now 3 are teenagers) but had a nip of a neighbor child so found himself in need of a new home. He was surrendered to GHF from his NJ guardians.

Gillie Summary:
- adult home
 - solo dog
 - rural setting with fenced yard


Gillie's Angel
-Tracey Akitt
-Harriet Guberman
-Jim & Maryellen Mayer & GHF alum, Juno 

GILLIE: A 10 year old Border Collie, Gillie is a sensitive, sweet shy girl who so wants to be friends but would never presume to boldly let you know! With patience and kindness, she quickly shows her true nature and enjoys lots of attention. Gillie loves the frisbee and other toys, interested in a game of retrieval as long as you’ll continue to thow it! She’s been in one home since a pup, bred by her guardian and lived an outdoor life in a rural NY setting. Gillie was surrendered to GHF due to her reaction around kids where Gillie wants to hide, very nervous by their chaos, so will do best in an adult home who understands her soft nature. She’s a lovely girl, really starting to blossom at GHF. Gillie is 50 pounds and with exercise at the Farm, will trim down. She is good with cats.

Shilo Summary:
- fenced yard required


Shilo's Angels
-Susan & Clifford Vanase, In Memory of Myles
Peter & Renate Goodloe, Rosie & Doc, GHF alums
Walt & Anne Thomas, in remembrance of GHF alum, Flynn 
SHILO: A 12 year old Border Collie, this girl is one gorgeous, good-natured BC, absolutely the quintessential personality of what draws everyone to want this breed. She is smart, focused and super friendly. However, she is serious about her ‘work’…her ball play…always just hoping for one more throw. With that charming, eager look of ‘how about it?!’…it’s hard to resist not tossing one more toy her way and she knows that! Shilo is lovely and so much fun, a spirited girl. Sometimes, people think age 12 is old but if you really spend time with this breed, you know first-hand that many mature dogs have the energy of a youthful dog cause when they have drive to ‘work/play’, they want to go, go, go, no matter their age and that is Shilo for sure. Shilo was from a PA home that bred Border Collies, relinquished to GHF when they wanted to stop breeding. She is about 40 pounds and good with dog savvy cats.

Special thanks to Kiersten Anderson who kindly transported Shilo to GHF.

Special thanks to Robin & Jon Bray for fostering Shilo in NY,
giving her total attention!

Keria's Angels
-Rene Bird, in memory of Shane & Lena
Marta & John Aberg, In memory of Andrew Slyter
KEIRA, A petite 3 yr old Border Collie, Kiera is coming to life! This shut down shy girl hid for a long time but through the interaction with the other dogs, she is so much fun to watch now.  She’s curious and absolutely loving the herding games of being with other BC’s, fitting into groups and with other dogs beautifully.  And, thanks to her FosterMom’s efforts to excite her with toys, she is a serious toy lover, too!  The jolly ball and frisbee bring out all her focus for fun!   Keira is still a very skittish girl and will need someone very patient to build on the foundation she now has, step by step.  She needs plenty of time to really trust someone and follow their lead, as well as living with a confident BC who can be her mentor.  Keira is maneuvering around the house almost like normal, a bit nervous but oh so very brave. Keira is a very very gentle dog and incredibly sweet, starting to enjoy the affectionate touch of humans. She is about 30 pounds and not yet tested on cats.  She was living an awful life stuck inside a pen 24/7 covered in feces and urine, never outside part of a breeder operation in Indiana.

Livi Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - bc friend preferred
 - NO cats


Livi's Angels
Love from Cindy, Tom, and Dustin ( GHF Alum)

LIVI: A 3 year old Border Collie, Livi is a sweet girl who does well with reassurance and time to understand everything around her. Once she bonds, she is quite a charmer, affectionate and loving. She also loves toys and comes to life to play, fully confident in all her BC intelligence and full of energy. Livi will do best with someone patient who understands the skittish nature of the breed and how to help her gain confidence. She loves to play with dogs and could benefit from a very people friendly Border Collie as her mentor. Livi needs a hard fence since she has some worries with strangers. When she is fearful, she tends to nip but we don’t feel this is aggression as much as insecurity. We are currently working with Livi on behavior modification. She is not good with cats and about 40 pounds, typical in size. She and her littermate were relinquished to GHF due to a divorce.

Special thanks to Peg Fuller for transporting Livi to GHF.

MAX needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Max Summary:
frisbee required
 - fenced yard required


MAX: A 4 year old Border Collie, Max is an athletic boy with a great love of toys, he’s using to have fun like any BC. He absolutely loves his frisbee games, truly a joy to watch as he races for a catch and proudly heads back for another toss. Max is people oriented and really does well with someone to call his own since he is timid with new people. He tends to shy away and rely on the bond with the person he knows. Max is not impulsive, he is a thinker - smart and focused so will do best with a BC savvy guardian who understands this. He is wonderful with other dogs, friendly but fairly indifferent. A simple, yet active life would suit him best. He is good with cats and about 50 pounds. Max was surrendered to GHF from Canadian guardians who felt he needed someone home more than they could be.


ANA is from the Indiana confiscation (click here)
He will only be placed:
 - with a bc savvy adopter due to her skittish nature
 - in an adult ONLY home
 - other bc friends and fenced yard is REQUIRED


Ana's Angel
-in memory of Edward, gone 10 long years, but forever in my heart
ANA: A petite 6 year old Border Collie, Ana is very shy but becoming more courageous as time goes in. She is intrigued by all the changes in her life but needs the greatest reassurance to bravely try anything new. She is so incredibly gentle and sweet and so wants to trust people. Ana loves to chase the other dogs and is really coming out of her shell, step by step. She is about 30 pounds and is good with cats. Ana suffered through an awful situation caged inside without access to the outside and without appropriate care of any kind, part of a breeder operation.

Special thanks to Anne Cattaneo for fostering Ana in Vermont.


We noticed that Molly seemed to have an odd gait so began a serious diet program which worked well. Unfortunately, her gait was still compromised and a recent orthopedic evaluation provided the answers why - she previously had ACL injuries to both knees - so severe that Molly would need to be euthanized from pain if not fixed. 

Our vet weighed in: “if you don’t do these surgeries, it will be cruel for her to even be moving at age 10”. So, MOLLY is about to undergo surgery for the first knee on 6/8.  This is a tough process of 12 weeks of post op recovery, then another 12 weeks waiting to do the 2nd knee and then, another 12 weeks post op before she is in the clear for adoption.

Molly has moved to the Farmhouse Sanctuary for round the clock care and will be with us until April 2017…a very very tough haul.  She is one of the sweetest girls in rescue and so ready to start a new life but we feel compelled to alleviate her pain NOW.

Please help us fund Molly’s medical needs, approximately $6000. We so appreciate any donation toward MOLLY… she just turned 6 and so deserves a happy, active Border Collie life!

Donate on-line for Molly!

Molly Summary:
 - invisible fence trained
 - solo dog


Molly's Angel
-Gyp, who would have loved having a sister
-Kate, Andy & Emma in memory of Max
Peter & Renate Goodloe, Rosie & Doc, GHF Alums
-From Ollie, Charlie and Epi

Kathy & Mike in honor of Arie
-Evelyn Ehrlich & Steve Jensen: For our wonderful girls, past and present: Lenna, Jillian and Livy!

MOLLY: A 6 year old Border Collie, Molly loves a good retrieval game and she also loves having her person around, a really affectionate cuddly girl. Molly is clearly eager to bond with someone to call her own, like a shadow wherever you go. She has a friendly, outgoing nature and is very curious about life. She is smart and focused but more easy going in nature than many purebreds, a great companion. She lived in one home since a pup with another BC, Sammi, relinquished together due to the PA guardian’s death. She is trained on the invisible fence. She’s carrying some extra weight right now but will easily trim down soon. Molly is good with cats

Update 6/13: MOLLY had her first knee operation, the worst leg has been tackled first. She is just days into post op recovery and sleeping a lot but we’re armed with food puzzles and some trick games to keep her happy once she rebounds a bit better back to her normal BC self!

Thank you all for the kind and generous support.

ASIA  needs angels -   click here to learn more
Asia Summary:
other bc friend preferred


A special thanks to Stephanie Prochazka for helping us transport Asia, responding instantly to our request. And, to one of our caretakers, Mary Beggs, who drove the 12 hour trip to get Asia and Rhyn to GHF.
Asia's Angels
-George Konder in loving memory of GHF alum Gracie, always in my heart.
Susan DiCriscio: in memory of Diggy, Cash and Big Dog
Harvey & Brenda Pardy

ASIA: A 7 year old Border Collie mix, Asia is the sweetest, friendliest, most loving dog and one who really needs our help. She has been suffering with a chronic GI problem for quite some time and now at about 25 pounds, she is literally fur on bones. You can feel her ribs, her tailbone and hip joints so completely, that it is nauseating. Asia landed in a VA shelter a month ago, as a stray. When the shelter recently reached out to rescue, GHF was the only one who could help and ironically, the volunteer we asked to go and meet Asia, actually knew her! She lived not far with someone she had known and could verify that Asia has been battling this digestive problem for at least two years. Clearly, Asia had been abandoned in this condition, leaving her, basically, starving to death. Asia should be at least 45 pounds, good with cats and is totally malnourished.

GHF is working with Cornell internal medicine to see if we can right this wrong. We have no clarity on the cause of her problem but will do everything possible to provide Asia with the appropriate care she so desperately needs and truly deserves. Amazingly, she is lively and wants to play ball but gaining no nutrition through food so is much like a ’ticking time bomb’ where organ failure is a true probability.

UPDATE 5/9/16
ASIA has moved to foster care with Mike & Mary Beggs (one of our Caretakers) so she can really relax and play and feel loved again in a home setting. It’s clear that Asia is so much happier going for walks with her canine pals and then stretched out on the couch for cuddling. And, she comes to work each day, too!
ASIA has been diagnosed with EPI, Pancreatic Enzyme Deficiency plus a  B-12 deficiency.  Click here for info

Most dogs can be successfully treated with an enzyme powder that pre-digests food so they can absorb the nutrition.  It will take months to be sure her body handles the nutrition properly but her stool is now firm and she is able to take in 3 cups a day so we are hopeful for weight gain. Continued monitoring by the Cornell internal medicine team will guide Asia’s treatment plan.

ASIA is having so much fun in her foster home this spring! Obviously feeling better! https://youtu.be/Plxcjbuojs4

UPDATE 6/4/16  We are so thrilled to report that ASIA has gained almost 10 pounds since her arrival 5/27 which confirms we’re right on track for this wonderful girl to return to good health. She’s now up to 33 pounds!!! Her digestive issue can easily be handled with Viokase powder in her food which pre-digests her meals since her pancreas is not working 100% to do so. Look at this happy happy girl now!

who kindly help ALL the dogs at GHF on a continual basis. 
We are deeply grateful to you all.
