At age 16, there is only one word that embodies the best goodbye to JACK and that is CELEBRATION…Jack landed at GHF 3 1/2 years ago and was clearly determined to live a big life at GHF and that he did! He became the icon for what the Farmhouse Sanctuary could be for so many Border Collies in need.

Extremely emaciated upon arrival and suffering from heartworm, he looked awful but nothing stopped this boy from transforming into a handsome, completely content character that graced the yard day in and day out. Jack was the star of the vacation tours and won the hearts of all the team here. He set the example of what true healing could mean to each and every dog that came to GHF. And, like any brilliant Border Collie, he wasn’t without his opinions about how things should run, giving a growl or grimace to anyone that was out of line, (in his opinion.) Jack would never hurt anyone but he did run the place, after all, so had to show that wisdom to all of us, just to be clear! He helped newbie dogs get grounded in their new surroundings, showing them the ropes and he shared his special strength to ‘continue on’, focused on the work of being a Border Collie.

Jack was a great ambassador of all that is this breed. Everyone loved this boy, a one-of-a-kind spectacular being with so much gusto, we know he’ll be back for another round one day! We’d all love to spend time with him again, soon. The reality of his deteriorating heart didn’t stop him from making it to 16 so we know that whatever Jack wants, Jack will make happen!

See you soon…we’ll be here at the Farm waiting for you.

JACK: A 16 yr old Border Collie, Jack is so cool - he loves life - running, chasing, exploring, playing ball, greeting everyone with his distinctive bark. He adores people and will take all the attention and affection you are willing to give.  Jack is a trooper for sure, he sailed through his heartworm treatment – his attitude was and is- that everyday is a day to be lived and enjoyed. We're thrilled to have Jack here at the Farm, a great inspiration to everyone. He is smart, super sweet, ready to stay by your side, in tune with you and sharing his heart and his goofy smile. This incredible boy is agile and active even with some bum back legs (from falling in a hole years ago). He loves toys of any kind and will happily entertain himself if you are busy. He is fine with cats. Jack came to GHF after his VA guardians foreclosure. He was father to many litters over the years.  

JUD: A 9 week old Border Collie, little Jud is the sweetest guy and full of spunk and curiosity for everything! He loves toys, he loves dogs and he loves people, just the best nature for a pup!  He really would be happy with a young canine pal so we would prefer he have a friend.  He’s a focused guy so could also tackle anything like agility or frisbee, very coordinated and agile.  He is about 10 pounds. He and his brothers came from an Amish dairy farm and now, he’s the last waiting for his new life to start!

Special thanks to Ann Mazur who helped the pups land safely at GHF.

Pippa's Angels
-Peg & Mike Fuller, Ollie, Stanley & GHF alum, Trip

PIPPA: A 6 month old Border Collie, Pippa is an amazing pup, very mature for her age and clearly quite the thinker, focused and curious about everything. Pippa is well balanced, stable and adjusts easily to new things, analyzing what is going on around her and sorting out the proper response. She is truly impressive. A confident girl, she will clearly need activities to stimulate her mind so will only go to a BC savvy home who understands the mental needs of the breed. Pippa is not for first time BC guardians. She has a work ethic that is yet to be fulfilled. Pippa is also super sweet, friendly and affectionate, an extremely loving dog. To her, everyone is her friend. She’s good with other BC’s and already showing the controlling female traits so will only be placed with a male BC since the boys and girls do best together or she could be placed alone. She is 25 pounds and good with cats.

    Sweet, wonderful FINN now has a life with loving guardians who adore the breed as he joins a GHF alum, Jemma, for tons of BC fun! Within minutes of ball play, it was clear that Finn, now Jax was going to fit great, almost as fast and as focused as his new canine pal. Both sweet dogs, they were a natural paired together and will bring lots of laughter and fun to their FurMom and FurDad who are on their 3rd GHF rescue! They were thrilled to have another great dog!!

FINN: An 8 month old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Finn 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 toy his way. He also loves other dogs and clearly would love a young friend to make up herding games. Finn is a soft dog so best with easy going dogs who don’t over-control him. Curious, smart and good natured, Finn will easily be a great companion. 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.

Tori Summary:
 - Loves kids!
 - NO cats
 - solo dog


Tori's Angels
-Maureen & Dick Ware, Jem & Robby, GHF alums
Roberto & Cheryl Pischek, Richard & Dara Frey
In memory of my Prudence - Marcy Levine
TORI: A very petite 10 month old Border Collie mix, Tori is quite a presence, a real big personality in a little body! This wee one could be incredible in sports cause she’s super agile, has great body awareness and loves to learn. She is very food motivated and very people oriented so a great combo for canine activities. She is not hyper like many pups but focused and observant. She also loves to race and play. Tori is good with other dogs but would be happiest as the solo dog. Tori absolutely adores children and comes to life when they are around, the most good natured outgoing girl! She is only 18 pounds. She is not good with cats. Tori was relinquished directly to the Farm from a PA guardian who could not handle her needs.

Lucy Summary:
other bc friends preferred
 - fenced yard REQUIRED


Special thanks to
Tom Kokoska, Deb & Harry Johnson, and Sue Myers for transporting Lucy to the Farm

Lucy's Angels
-Mike & Kathy Hoar, Tierney & GHF alum, Zach
LUCY: A petite 11 month 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. Quite a cuddler, she’s very 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. A very loving girl, Lucy is adorable and friendly. 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. 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.

 LOUIE landed the right guardians who would cherish him for his fabulous nature and enjoy the challenge of guiding him through life, no matter what obstacles arise. This wonderful boy has all the drive to play and learn and explore and now will have someone 24/7 to do this with him. He’ll have 33 acres to enjoy and be the center of attention, along with a FurDad who joins in the fun, too. Louie lept on the couch for hugging before heading out to his new forever home! A very huge thanks to Judy and Gary Eckenrode who gave their hearts fostering Louie, to help him be ready for this very special moment.

LOUIE: A 1 year old Border Collie, Louie is amazing. He’s outgoing, loves attention and connects quickly with people. While he has sight limitations, watching him play ball and navigate around outside is inspiring.. he’s fearless and joyful! And, we’re pretty sure he can see shapes since he doesn't’ bump into anything at all. He learns quickly and loves his toys, a classic Border Collie player. Louie is great with everyone he meets as well as cats. He loves to race and chase with other dogs but we’d like to give him a life where he is the full focus of his person rather than with other dogs. Louie is 40 pounds, has been evaluated at Cornell ophthalmology and surgery is not likely to yield any change. He was born with ocular anomalies.

Tess Summary:
 - rural setting with fenced yard
 - solo dog
 - bc savvy guardian
 - NO cats


Tess absolutely turned onto frisbee and is really getting great at it!

Special thanks to Ellen Simcik, Erica Snyder, Debbi & Tony Grassi and Sue Myers for getting her to GHF
Tess' Angels
-Linda Whitman,
Sky and GHF alum, Connell
-Marnie Waiwat,
Bliss, Zion & GHF alum, Lux
TESS: A petite 1 year Border Collie, Tess is a lovely little girl who thinks about everything step by step, then takes action! This intelligent girl is quite orderly and thoughtful. What a lovely cuddle bug just so wiggly and happy to get attention. Everyone loves Tess! She’s also quite a herder of other dogs and has a bit of bossy female attitude with dogs, too, so she can be a bit much for other dogs which is why we’ll find her a home where she’s the center of attention as a solo dog. She is very smart and will do best with a BC savvy guardian. She loves attention and clearly thinks people are wonderful though she’s not one to boldly throw herself at you. She is about 32 pounds and is not good with cats. Tess also has an interest in cars so needs to be in a rural setting to minimize the stimulation. Tess was living an outside farm dog life and was then abandoned after the family moved out, literally leaving her outside on her own, waiting for them to come home. Tess is now, loving the good life, cozy and warm inside and is a huge cuddle-bug!

Ellie Summary:
 - bc friends preferred
 - rural setting with fenced yard REQUIRED
 - dog savvy cats OK


Ellie's Angels
-Julie Konnor
Rob & Amy Barilla
ELLIE: A petite 1 year old Border Collie, Ellie is a super friendly, high energy girl, classic in her focus and drive. She loves any toy and will play non-stop, serious about her retrieval games. Smart as can be, she’ll need a BC savvy guardian who can stimulate her mentally as well as physically and emotionally. She loves to learn and is very eager to please. Ellie loves other Border Collies and would love a buddy for non-stop play which would be great for her energy level! She is about 30 pounds and good with dog savvy cats. A Friend of the Farm spotted her in the shelter and thankfully contacted GHF. She was surrendered to the shelter due to a move.  Ellie also has an interest in cars so needs to be in a rural setting to minimize the stimulation.

Special thanks to the transporters including volunteers from the shelter, Mary Ann and Eileen, plus the GHF transporters Sue Myers, Jen Royce and Peg Fuller.

 WYNN won the hearts of his new guardians after they met a few of the rescue dogs, having a hard time deciding exactly who was to be their new beloved friend. Wynn’s outgoing, classic BC traits led them to spend more time with him and just as they were thinking of another of the dogs who was super cuddly (Wynn wasn’t cause he’s a toy boy!), he literally jumped right into his new FurDad’s lap, leaning heavily against him settled as if he’d heard their concerns. Then, went right over to his new FurMom and did the exact same thing! They knew in that moment, that all three were clearly in sync and this was the boy to head home to Maine with them. After coming a long day’s drive, they overnighted with Wynn and headed out to their new journey together. He’ll be playing along the beach right outside his back door and be their constant companion which he will surely love!

WYNN: A 1 year old Border Collie, Wynn is a handsome guy and certainly athletic, too. He’s a huge toy dog, happy to chase and return anything tossed his way, non-stop if you let him! Wynn has plenty of energy but does settle nicely inside once he’s been busy enough all day. He is happiest with a BC buddy and since he has some worries about new situations, he really needs a mentor pal to lead the way. He just loves playing with the young BC’s at the Farm. Wynn is a loving boy who is eager to please and a bit sensitive so we’d like to give him a less chaotic household. He will only be adopted to BC savvy guardians. Wynn is good with cats and is 45 pounds. He was found by a dog lover who spotted him loose on a NY road and thankfully helped him find safety. And, yes, his ears are floppy when he’s ball focused, that directional ear that some busy BC’s have!

Reno & Miley Summary:
GREAT together

 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - No cats


Reno's Angel
-Lizette Rosario
Miley's Angels
-Julia Neumann & Menno Kluin & Spaetzle

RENO, age 2 & MILEY, age 1 are two pals that love life, together! They’ve worked out a great relationship with Reno as the lead dog and both seem quite content this way.  They are related from the same parents but different litters and have very similar natures - happy go lucky, friendly and moderate energy levels - lovely affectionate Border Collies who adore people.  Both also really love toys but Reno is clearly the toy maniac with Miley herding him as you play with them, again, a relationship that works just fine for both.  They absolutely love attention but are also independent and can entertain themselves.  Both were surrendered to GHF due to a move which left them in an apartment crated 12 hours a day, 5 days a week. They lived in one home since pups. Reno & Miley are about 40 pounds and not good with cats.  

Double the pleasure, double the fun – thanks to our transporters Liz Boucher, Rich and Annemarie Bias, Linda Wood, and Todd Leppert and Norah Doyle.

Jersie Summary:
 - canine friend required

 - fenced yard REQUIRED


Jersie's Angel
-Deb Meyers, Twist, BC rescue

JERSIE: A very petite 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Jersie is a sweet, cuddly, 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 and needs reassurance from the person that is hers, so she can accept someone new.  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

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 and Arlo

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. 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.

Jagg Summary:
solo dog

 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - NO cats


A huge thanks to Sam Polsky and Jennifer Pidustwa who stepped in to help Jagg get to GHF, making sure he could have a much better life.

Jagg's Angels
-Leslie, Bill, Dani and Ari
-Tracy & Bill Blevins &
Grace & Tucker, GHF alums
JAGG: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Jagg is a sweet guy, in tune with everything around him and curious, too. He is eager to be with someone to call his own and is super affectionate.  Jagg is also quite the athlete, a real toy dog and enjoys whatever game he’s involved in! He is good natured and very friendly with everyone, a classic exuberant young BC.  He is also very good with other dogs for chasing games but we feel he’d really benefit from a close one on one relationship with a person rather than having a dog friend.  His former guardian left him alone all day outside til dark, then crated at night so Jagg is really thriving with all the human interaction. He loves people!  He is about 40 pounds and not good with cats. Jagg luckily landed at GHF when dog lovers who lived in the same building stepped in to get him into a better situation.

Tobie Summary:
solo dog or canine friends

 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - dog savvy cats


Tobie's Angels
-Mike & Kathy Hoar, Zach & Tierney
-Deb Meyers & GHF alum Logi

TOBIE: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Tobie is a gorgeous guy and a great athlete..he is fast and agile and classic in his energy level! He loves to race and run, gorgeous to watch in action. Tobie is a big player so could benefit from a young canine friend who likes chase games, like him. Though he does love to play with dogs, he values his person equally, truly wanting to be right with you. Quite the cuddler, he’s happily a great companion. He will need a guardian who understands his mental and physical needs since he’s looking for activities and something to do! Tobie is changing a lot in his foster home where he has a fenced yard and can really experience being an active BC rather than tied out like in his previous home. Tobie lived with four children so didn’t get the focused attention he really needs. Tobie is from breeding lines in Ohio and Indiana.  Tobie is about 50 pounds and fine with dog savvy cats.

Special thanks Joy Moll for fostering Tobie. He is now in Rochester, NY.

A lovely high energy girl named ADELE popped up on the internet needing a new home so we reached out to offer help and now, Adele has a new life! Her new name is Addie, joining a GHF alum, Breeze, and another canine pal, Killian, who has been a GHF camper for a long time. This ironic twist of fate started with plans for a few overnights awaiting a transport and as the story goes, she never left!! We’re thrilled for her new guardians who instantly saw the perfect match: "These girls act like they've been together forever. I knew I couldn't separate them!” A special thanks to GHF adopter, Jim Geiser,

Ash Summary:
solo dog or canine friends

 - fenced yard REQUIRED


Special thanks to our transporters Ellen Simcik, Erica Snyder, Brady Johnston, Cindy and Carl Tier, Sue Myers, Scottie Burkhalter and Abby Mack, and David and Kathy Staff.
Ash's Angels
ve from Cindy, Tom, and Dustin (GHF alum)
ASH: A 2 year old Border Collie/Aussie mix, Ash is an outgoing, energetic boy with lots of energy for racing, chasing and playing. He will love a youthful guardian who loves to be active WITH him. He’s friendly with everyone and happy to say hello, joining whatever activity is going on at the time. Most of all, he loves toy play with his person as well as playing with other dogs. Ash is a physical player so does best with dogs with that play style. A super sweet guy, he’s tons of fun and a big boy who wants to play, play, play. Ash is good with cats and about 50 pounds, taller than most BC’s. He lived in one home since a pup but a move forced his guardian to pass him to GHF.

KEIRA 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
 - other bc friends and fenced yard is REQUIRED


Keria's Angels
-Rene Bird, in memory of Shane & Lena
Marta & John Aberg, In memory of Andrew Slyter
KEIRA, A petite 2 year 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.

Special thanks to Kim & Maury Bouchard for fostering Keira.
She is hanging with former Sprakers dog, Keenan!

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


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

LEA: A petite 2 year old Border Collie, Lea is gorgeous. She is so thoughtful, really taking in everything around her, trying to understand this totally new life. Lea is learning step by step that people can be good and she asking for more attention and a stronger connection with a person now. She really likes to bond with one person so we want her in a quieter home without a lot of chaos since a lot of change is too much for her. She’s fine with other dogs outside but would do best with one confident male BC as her friend. Lea likes to claim her person so doesn’t fit with a group of dogs very well. However, since she likes to play and needs a mentor dog, a balanced male BC would be ideal. She is about 30 pounds and is good with cats. Lea, like her other friends from Indiana, lived a horrible life with no appropriate care, confined in a small indoor area so she is VERY undersocialized in the real world. Lea is, however, brave and taking steps to show she wants to do more. A very patient, caring person will be the key to her next steps.

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


Haley's Angels
-Mary Jean Byrne-Maisto, Donato & Nina, GHF alums

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

Sheila Summary:
 - a bc buddy or solo dog


Special thanks to Kiersten Anderson who kindly transported both Sheila and Shilo to GHF.
Sheila's Angels
-Susan & Brian Mumford and GHF alum, Sammie
SHEILA: A 4 year old Border Collie, Sheila is a loving, sweetheart of a girl. She just loves to be right by your side, happiest to be with her person. Gentle and sensitive, she blossoms with attention and is quite the cuddle-bug, too. She loves playing ball and is a joyful girl used to herding other dogs as they play but really enjoying a good toss game herself. Since Sheila is a bit sensitive, she’ll be placed in a calmer home where she can be the center of attention. She’s lived with many Border Collies and does well with them all so could have a buddy again or be a solo dog, with the right situation. Sheila loves men since she was with the previous male guardian a great deal so would love to have another FurDad to call her own. Sheila is good with cats and about 40 pounds. She and Shilo came to GHF from PA guardians who felt they had too many Border Collies from their breeding situation so relinquished two to rescue.

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 5 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.

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.

Skye Summary:
 - fenced yard required


Special thanks to Kim Renak and Sue Marriner who helped get Skye to GHF
Skye's Angels
-Gayle Marriner-Smith and Sweet Sir William Braveheart aka Will
-Gregg, Jodi, Skid, Cassie & Rave; In loving memory of GHF alumni Flash - truly a once in a lifetime Border Collie
SKYE: A 7 year old Border Collie, Skye is a toy girl who loves any retrieval games...soccer balls, regular balls, squeaky balls, footballs, frisbees...you name it, she will go for it. Skye is quite an athlete with lots of focus and drive to play! Skye really bonds with one person and enjoys the constant companionship of a close relationship which is what she’s used to. She isn’t super cuddly though, a bit more independent and thoughtful, typical of many female BC’s. Skye can’t be thrown into new things too quickly because she needs time to digest what’s going on around but once she feels safe and comfortable, she comes to life with her toys. She is a sweet girl who will need caring guardians who allow her to unfold at her own pace. She is good with cats and about 40 pounds. She was relinquished to the Farm due to changing family dynamics that didn’t suit Skye’s happiness.

 Sweet EMMA found a new FurMom who will adore her for all the wonderful sweetness she has to offer plus all the brilliance of that great mind of hers! She’s hoping that Emma will enjoy therapy dog training which they can pursue together and wants to give her a chance at agility, too. We’re pretty sure Emma would love both but feel excited that she might share that loving heart of hers with others who need her ‘cause she sure loves people! Emma happily headed off to a new life where she’ll be center stage!!

EMMA: a petite 7 year old Border Collie, Emma is a gorgeous girl with a great personality, super friendly and super fun! She has plenty of energy for lots of play, in fact meeting her you would think she’s about 4 years old, a drivey go, go, go girl. However, she settles in beautifully inside, right next to you for tons of cuddling, happy as can be so she’s got that wonderful ‘off’ switch that makes living with a BC, so much easier. Smart, focused and a real spitfire, Emma is a great, joyful, good natured girl.  She lived with 11 yr old Cooper but lost her home due to a divorce and move to an apartment. She is good with cats and about 35 pounds. She is a classic in-charge female BC so best with submissive males or as a solo dog.  

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 9 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  needs an angel -    click here to learn more
Shilo Summary:
- fenced yard required


Special thanks to Kiersten Anderson who kindly transported both Sheila and Shilo to GHF.
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 9 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. She came to GHF with Sheila, both relinquished to GHF, no longer wanted cause there were too many BC’s in the PA home. They were both part of a breeding situation. Now, they get to just enjoy being themselves! Shilo could be adopted with Sheila since they get along famously, or by herself. She is about 40 pounds and good with dog savvy cats.

Jackson Summary:

JACKSON: A 12 year old Border Collie, Jackson is one spitfire, absolutely one of the coolest seniors to land here in awhile. He’s ready to rock, playing ball and curious about everything, as vibrant as any youngster around! Jackson is a ball and frisbee nut of course and also a great hiking partner, with a history of off-leash living. He is also very smart, sweet, friendly and truly, just a doll. While he gets along ok with dogs outside, Jackson prefers to be the only dog since that’s been his life since a pup. He lived in one home and sadly, his guardian is moving overseas where he cannot go. Jackson is a trim 40 pounds and is good with cats. He originally came from a breeder in Georgia with a working sheep farm.

Special thanks to Paul Elkins for fostering Jackson
so he can have some guy time which he so desperately wants.

The Farmhouse Sanctuary residents will live out their lives at the Farm.
Please consider supporting their care by being an angel. 
We will need ongoing financial assistance for their needs.

Hope Summary:

HOPE: A 8 month old Border Collie, little Hope is a pistol, full of energy and spunk and ready to go! She is bold and curious and eager to try new things. She’s a super sweet girl too, of course but we’re evaluating her as a sport candidate to see if agility might be of interest. Hope was bred to chase geese but showed little interest at this age so she was surrendered to GHF. Since she is petite and such a high energy girl, we’ll update her bio once we know her interest in agility. She is about 20 pounds and good with cats.


Special thanks to Rosie Sutherland for fostering
and evaluating Hope in sports.

Arlo Summary:

ARLO: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Arlo is a soft-natured guy who does best with reassurance, then he becomes a happy boy! He loves toys and enjoys the interaction of playing with a person he can call his own. Arlo is very affectionate and friendly, eager to say hello but will need a savvy BC guardian who understands a dog who has worries in new settings. He’s been in the shadow of his brother, Pike, and while Arlo is strong enough to squabble over toys, he clearly is a follower. We feel he’d benefit from a life where he is the center of attention and someone can build his confidence as a human leader.  Arlo is about 40 pounds and not good with cats.

Beau Summary:

BEAU: A 6 year old Border Collie, Beau is really on the mend over the past two months at GHF. He’s gained weight, his coat is growing in quickly and the condition of his fur is fantastic, thanks to high quality nutrition and salmon oil, too!  We’re thrilled to see this boy feeling strong and healthy. Happy is he, no matter more fur or not, cause he LOVES the ball! He will happily play ball with anyone willing to toss his way and he’s so athletic, he can catch anything!  Beau is an affectionate guy too, loving a belly rub and a good car ride or walk, happy to be with his person. Beau has a marvelous personality, absolutely fabulous with everyone he meets - everyone!  He is about 45 pounds and is good with cats. Beau would do best as a solo dog where he gets full attention and doesn’t need to share his toys!  He came to GHF from a PA shelter. Step by step, he’ll gain all his hair again and is in good health after all the diagnostics at Cornell put him on the right track.

Beau in September

Special thanks to transporters Gail Hurley, Sue Myers and Suzin Webb for the very early morning transport of Beau

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 and her canine buddy, Angel, lived tied outside, with improper care. She is super sweet and has no concerns about the past, just enjoying whatever new goodies come her way now! Daisy is about to undergo vetting to improve her health which seems compromised. We are hopeful that whatever we undercover can be turned around cause we’d love to give this girl a full loving life! She is about 40 pounds and is not good with cats. Thanks to a dog loving neighbor, Daisy is safe and in rescue.

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