A HUGE THANKS TO Todd & Katie Vanscoter
for donating their RV to help the rescue dogs!

They adore their Border Collies, Duff & Blue, so wanted to help others in need when they no longer needed their RV. Their generous donation made it possible for us to add to the Getaway lodging line-up. The vacation Getaway at GHF raises funds for the year-round rescue so they received a tax letter as well as huge thank you from all of us! Their dogs raced right inside the RV upon arrival at their recent weekend at GHF, clearly they knew it was familiar!

If you have an RV, car or boat you would like to donate, please contact rescue@glenhighlandfarm.com

 Pup, JJ, quickly drew attention from adopters but one had been patiently waiting for many weeks for just the right dog. Soon as she saw JJ, she came to meet him, feeling he could fit exactly with her beloved BC. JJ will be having a blast learning agility & frisbee, going on lots of hikes and playing with other BC pals he’s soon to meet. The perfect paradise for this little fireball plus he’ll have his new FurMom 24/7 and five acres to call his own! He now lives in NY.

JJ: A 3 month old Border Collie, JJ is all boldness - he is confident, curious and focused already at this age - clearly ready to DO something! He’ll need a savvy guardian since he’s a ‘take no prisoners’ kind of pup, happy to barge in and grab a toy he wants from another dog’s mouth. He is learning that adult BC’s don’t always agree that ‘everything is JJ’s’ so he’s catching on quickly. Wicked smart, he will be a fabulous pup to train for whatever activities a new guardian wants to undertake but it better be an engaging life, cause JJ will make it that way if he’s bored! He is super sweet, friendly and good natured but a REAL BC! He is about 15 pounds and fine with cats.

 Little JUDE is going to have a big Border Collie life with two new pals, one a GHF alum. We’re really happy for this shy little guy to have two mentor buddies, one who will wrestle and chase and play with him and the other who can share the confidence of being a well-loved, happy BC - Jude needed both! He’ll also have 30 acres to enjoy for hikes and swims plus visit the vacation Getaway at GHF so we’ll get to watch this little guy grow into all his potential. We’re just thrilled for him. He now lives in PA.

JUDE: A 4 month old Border Collie, Jude is a handsome sweet guy who is pretty timid about everything new but does well following a lead dog. He absolutely loves playing with young BC’s and is very good understanding adult BC’s too, used to being with both. Jude needs lots of reassurance and will need a very patient, skilled BC savvy guardian to help him blossom fully, not rushing him to be bolder than he can be. He is not yet secure with toys unless the other young dogs join in the action with him and then, he’s happy as can be. He is about 20 pounds and fine with cats. Jude’s mother, Shawnee, is also in rescue, surrendered to GHF because the breeder wanted to downsize their pack.

 Little spitfire JILL found just the right guardian who appreciates her ‘old soul’ nature along with her sassy girl bossiness..exactly what she was looking to add to her pack. Jill joins two male BC’s who gave free rein to Jill to show them her ‘big girl attitude’ but also befriended her with some fun BC herding moves, too. This trio was adorable to watch unfold as they discovered who was who and how things would roll. Jill’s new FurMom chuckled to see this girl in action and plans to introduce her to agility as well as any other sport that suits her interest. Jill hit the jackpot with someone who truly understands the mind of the breed and how to stimulate their happiness with work and fun! We are so thrilled for this very special pup to find a very special person. We’re expecting to hear great stories for all the cool stuff they do together!! She now lives in Delaware.

JILL: A petite 4 month old Border Collie, Jill is an amazing pup, absolutely brilliant, confident and exuberant. She is a classic BC with everything wired right. She listens intently to what you are saying connecting to whatever you ask of her and learns extremely fast - she loves mental challenges! She’s never needed a crate so her puppy room is filled with toys she cherishes, never destructive, just happy to entertain herself or engage with one of the young BC’s. Jill understands the pattern of her life right now, even putting herself to bed when it’s the end of the day. She does have her own mind, too, and will quickly catch on to whatever is going on around her, sorting out her role in everything. She is currently living with a pack of adult BC’s and doing beautifully, navigating through the group. She loves playing with the young BC’s and will race, chase and make up herding games as long as they will enjoy her puppy antics. Jill is such an agile girl, so athletic, it’s clear she could excel at agility. She loves to fly through the fields with the pack and would be a great hiking friend, too. Soon as she hears the whistle, she returns instantly, happy to head home for whatever is next. Super friendly and loving, Jill bonds quickly. We want to find a seasoned BC guardian who wants to continue developing her potential with a stimulating life. Jill is a strong female pup so would do best with a male BC since she’s surely going to be the boss. She is about 20 pounds and good with cats.

Tuck Summary:
bc savvy home required


TUCK: A 6 month old Border Collie, Tuck is a very cool guy with a lot of BC focus really starting to unfold, herding other dogs or going for his toys. He’s going to be the ‘real deal’ with some drive and will be a joy to engage and shape his behaviors. Tuck is also super sweet and loves attention and will happily cuddle next to his person with quite the adoring face, a real love-bug. Tuck aims to please and will do great with a seasoned BC person who understands how to develop his natural talent. He is a bit reserved at first and does well with reassurance and guidance, eager to learn. Tuck is about 35 pounds and not yet tested on cats. He was in a home where he was just not a fit for the person who could not meet his needs.

Special thanks to Sue Myers and Erica Snyder for transporting Tuck to safety at GHF

 GIDEON found a loving couple with a canine pal that not only looks a bit like him, is just as sweet as he is and they are a great pair! Gideon will offer some confidence to Ziggy who is a bit shy and together, they can chase and race and join in fun times together as best buds. His new guardians are devoted to the happiness of their fur friends and just loved everything about Gideon! He now lives in PA.

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.

Chase Summary:
other canine friends preferred
 - fenced yard REQUIRED


CHASE: A petite 9 month old Border Collie mix, Chase is a doll. He’s super sweet, gentle and affectionate. A bit sensitive, he does well with a bit of time to make sense of new situations then comes to life racing around with his toys. He is good with other dogs and especially likes a softer pal who doesn’t overwhelm him. He is very friendly and very good natured. Chase is about 40 pounds and good with cats. He was too much for his PA guardians who had a german shepherd pup, kids and another baby on the way so he was relinquished to GHF.

Special thanks to Jane Locacio, Kathy Devaney & Sue Myers for driving Chase to GHF.

Kingston Summary:
other bc friends required
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - dog savvy cats


KINGSTON: A 9 month old BC (possibly mix), Kingston is a player - he loves to wrestle, chase and race with all the dogs - instantly everyone’s pal! He would be thrilled to have a canine friend who plays as much as he does. He is a sweet guy, smart about everything going on around him and figuring out what he thinks he wants to do. A super active boy, he loves to play a good ball game. He also loves attention, a friendly guy who is sure life is all about having fun! Very good natured, Kingston really needs a canine pal and someone who enjoys his joyful nature. He is 45 pounds and best with dog savvy cats. He lived with elderly guardians who felt he was just too much for them.

Special thanks to
Jane Locacio, Kathy Devaney and Sue Myers for getting Kingston to 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. Jac is a very focused BC and loves intense ball play so is best suited to living with other Border Collies who think the same way. 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
other bc friends preferred
 - 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 become timid in new situations.  Hope was bred to chase geese but showed little interest at this age so she was surrendered to GHF.  She is about 35 pounds and good with cats.

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.

TANNER needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Tanner Summary:
 - canine friend preferred

 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - NO cats


Special thanks to Jane Locacio, Katherine Schule, Erica Snyder & Ellen Simcik  who transported him to GHF.

TANNER: A 2 year old Border Collie mix, Tanner is a fun-loving, good-natured, active boy. He loves to explore outside on his own but also loves playing high-speed chase games with other dogs, a gorgeous athlete with a beautiful stride. He is light on his feet and very agile as he focuses on his ball games, too. Tanner is a very friendly, affectionate boy who wants to bond quickly with anyone new, happy to be their companion. He is really blossoming quickly being at GHF, a really wonderful guy. He is about 50 pounds and not good with cats. He came to GHF from a PA shelter that asked for our help.

 JERSIE has been in rescue for 2 years, in a ‘temporary’ foster home who reached the official conclusion that sending her anywhere else wouldn’t be right, so little Jersie is in her forever home. She started not far from the foster Mom’s home on a chain at 6 months old living outside with a dog house. That sad start has completely changed in a new life filled with love and attention and patient understanding. Thanks to her history, Jersie has worries with new people so needed lots of time to learn that people are safe. She’s made great strides but any big change could cause regression so the world she’s come to understand now is where she’ll stay. We are deeply appreciate of Cindy Tier and her family’s willingness to help Jersie experience a life she clearly deserves.

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.

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.

SADIE needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Sadie Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - canine
friend -submissive male
 - NO cats


SADIE: A very petite 2 year old Border Collie mix, Sadie is absolutely adorable. She’s like a pint-sized BC with tons of energy now that she has a fenced yard for racing around. We barely got any pictures where she wasn’t off the ground in full flight! And, what a happy girl she was as she flew across the field. She loves squeaky toys and loves to investigate anything, quite curious. She is also a big time thinker, digesting everything around before she decides what she wants to do. She has a serious side but is really starting to let loose at GHF and have fun. Sadie will need a guardian who wants to help her blossom, discovering activities that she likes to do. She is a strong female so mixes well with submissive male dogs. She is 25 pounds and is not good with cats. Sadie was adopted four months ago from another rescue into a NYC home but her previous guardian felt it was really unfair to keep her leashed and alone all day while she worked - we agree - this little girl is going to love moving freely and choosing what she wants to do!

 Sweet ANNEY found a new life with one of the GHF team, joining an alum who adores his FurMom, too! Now Anney will have two BC pals and a guardian devoted to her every need and happiness. Anney absolutely loves her new life and fits like she’s been there all her life. We’ll get to see her all the time, too!

ANNEY: A 2 year old Border Collie mix, Anney is a lovely, gentle girl who blossoms with a person to call her own. Anney is extremely sweet and needs a quieter home since her nature has been timid since a pup. Her confidence is boosted by the relationship and bond of being a companion to someone. She also gains direction from another dog, having lived with three previously, one being her sister who she followed. We want her to have another canine friend since it helps her feel more secure but more importantly, Anney really wants to be have a close human relationship again. She found her way to GHF once her person died and a neighbor stepped in to insure her safety.

PRINN needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Prinn Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - solo dog
 - dog savvy cats


PRINN: A 3 year old Border Collie mix, Prinn is very, very smart, observant and clues into whatever is going on around her quickly. Focused and athletic, she loves her frisbee game and will retrieve pretty much any toy tossed her way. She would love an active guardian who likes to have a dog friend who can take her places, including her fully in their life. She is super sweet and very friendly, a people girl for sure. Prinn is good with other dogs but would be happiest as a solo dog since she likes to be in charge of toys and all the attention, a classic girl! She lived with cats and did well with them but will chase a bit so best with dog savvy cats used to that. She is about 50 pounds. She was relinquished to a PA shelter who works with GHF, given up due to a move.

Special thanks to Carolyn & Dick Dumaresq for getting Prinn safely into rescue & Sue Myers for transporting her.

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

OZZY needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Ozzy Summary:
 - adult home

 - fenced yard required
 - bc friend preferred
 - dog savvy cats


OZZY: A 3 year old Border Collie, Ozzy is a joyful guy who loves to bound around the fields checking everything out, happy to be free to move like every BC! He’s a sweet guy, a little unsure about his new experiences but unfolding day by day. Ozzy is a gentle boy who needs reassurance and patient guardians who help guide him through what’s expected. He’s done beautifully walking in town on leash, friendly with everyone he meets. He is also good with other dogs but wants to play a lot, so needs just the right fit or he may be a little overwhelming with his enthusiasm. He is good with dog savvy cats and 45 pounds. He was surrendered to GHF by someone who took him in, hoping to give him a good life since he came to her clearly neglected, dirty and dread-locked with mats. She didn’t have the means to do more, so gladly responded to our offer to help from her craigslist ad. He is from the PA area.

Special thanks to Jane Locacio, Erica Snyder, Ellen Simick & Katherine Schule for getting him to rescue.

SAGE & LIL need angels -   click here to learn more
Sage and Lil Summary:
 - adopted together
 - fenced yard required


SAGE, age 4 & LIL, age 3 are ABCA registered Border Collies who are not only gorgeous, they are very, very sweet. They are half-sisters, each a little different in energy and personality, but a nicely blended pair who do well together. Lil really depends on Sage so we are likely to adopt them out together. Both girls lived in one home since pups and are very very friendly and good natured. They have limited experience meeting other dogs but truly enjoy the games they make together.

Sage is more easy-going, happy to have some cuddle time but also ready to join the ball games, allowing Lil to always be the retriever as Sage is the herder, circling around the toss.

Lil is more high-drive, very fast and focused, eager to play ball endlessly. She likes to cuddle, too but action is more appealing than ‘hang-around’ time.

Both are average size for the breed, about 40 pounds and both are fine with cats. Their NY guardians had to make a long-distance move and could not take them so relinquished them to GHF.

SHAWNEE  needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Shawnee Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - solo dog


SHAWNEE: A petite 4 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Shawnee is extremely sweet and gentle. Her little face is joyful just seeing someone she knows, almost a smile! She loves attention and is very affectionate with someone who is patient. She is a wonderful companion and would love going on walks, car rides and spending time at home with someone who enjoys an easy going, lovely, soft-natured girl. She is a strong female BC with other dogs so best as a solo dog. Her previous life was a breeding female, having a couple litters, living with a few other Border Collies in PA. She originally came from Nebraska. She is about 40 pounds and good with cats. She will be placed in an adult home.

Special thanks to Sue Myers for driving Shawnee from PA to GHF so she would have safety in rescue.

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


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

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 is one of the smartest dogs to ever land at GHF - like living with a human in fur - he knows everything you ask of him verbally as you say it, ready to connect with his person instantly. A wickedly smart boy, he is incredibly social with everyone he meets, a great ambassador for the breed. He can go off leash on hikes and stick right with you or go for car rides, happy to go wherever you go. He’s quite affectionate too, a big time cuddler. Bentley needs a savvy person who understands the mental and physical nature of this boy as well as his emotional needs. 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.



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. 

 Sweet, good-natured JONAH arrived just in time as former GHF adopters wrote looking for a good match for GHF alum, Rubie, age 12. They wanted to have two BC’s again but wanted to be sure the fit was just right so when they saw the gentle nature of Jonah, it was clear he would be a great pal. And, Rubie could help Jonah find his way in his new life, too. Jonah tugged at their big hearts, just like Rubie had, making him the clear boy to join their lives. We are so happy for this pairing and know Jonah’s new FurMom and FurDad will give him a lifetime of happiness and love. He now lives in Ct.

JONAH: A 6 year old Border Collie, Jonah is a delightful, happy go-lucky doll! He is so incredibly sweet and loves everyone and now, for the first time, loving toys! Jonah was a geese chasing dog who lost his hearing so came to rescue. Funny thing he never had access to an abundance of toys, but clearly this boy is making up for lost time!! Jonah is so good spirited and loves attention, eager to give his heart to someone special. He is good with other Border Collies and could enjoy a pal to act as his guide. He is about 45 pounds and best with dog savvy cats.

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.

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 can be a little worried with someone new so we’d like to have an adult home to make it easier on her, with less chaos. She is easy going and good natured, a pleasure to be with and she wants to be right by your side and happily joins you in whatever you are doing. Maggie also loves the ball and will play some games but isn’t over the top to do it all the time. 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 45 pounds. 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.

Asia Summary:
other canine 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 one outgoing, friendly, ready to go girl, happy to jump into anything and everything going on around her! She is also one of the sweetest, most loving heart dogs we’ve ever had in rescue. We are sure the person that finally becomes Asia’s forever guardian will be the luckiest person alive. Everyone who meets Asia agrees that she is ALL love. She could really be a fabulous therapy dog! She also loves to play and chase and race with other canine pals and easily makes friends with those she meets. She is a great off-leash hiking pal, too with a zest for swimming! Her joyful enthusiasm is fabulous to experience!

Asia has had quite the story in rescue, arriving at merely 25 pounds due to EPI, a pancreatic enzyme deficiency. Left untreated, she was wasting away to nothing, literally starving to death. A simple enzyme powder brought her fully back to life and she is now 36 pounds, on her way to gaining a bit more, likely 40- 45 pounds is her normal weight. We are thrilled that GHF could give this girl another chance at good health and a happy life. Asia is good with cats.

So, Asia is now ready to find her new life! A couple things to know about management of her health condition. She must be on a special food that is low in fat so easily digestible: SOLID GOLD: Holistique Blendz with Ocean Fish Meal (Not Grain Free) Protein -- 18%, Fat -- 6%, Fiber—4% and VIOKASE ENZYME POWDER on her food with each meal. This powder pre-digests the food so she can absorb the nutrition properly. There are other brands of enzyme powder but Viokase works the best for her. The cost for the powder is $200 a month so any adopter interested in Asia, needs to budget accordingly

Special thanks to Mike & Mary Beggs for fostering Asia, giving her a chance to enjoy life again while she waits for her forever home.

Jojo Summary:

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
Stewart & Brenda Beck

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.

Shay Summary:
 - fenced yard required


Shay's Angels
-Glory D in memory of Sky's No Limit
SHAY: An 8 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Shay is an observant girl who likes to watch all the action around her before she decides what she wants to do. Very intelligent, she needs time to understand new settings and feel comfortable before she shows her friendly, sweet side. She is a softer girl and responds beautifully to someone to call her own. Quite a cuddler, she loves attention. Shay can be a bit strong with other dogs so would need a submissive male if paired with another dog. She was relinquished from a breeder who wanted to ‘lighten their load’ of dogs so both Shay & Shawnee came to rescue. She is about 45 pounds and good with cats. She lived with other Border Collies and has been in one home all her life.

Special thanks to Sue Myers for driving Shay from PA to GHF so she would have safety in rescue.

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 35 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 Summary:
- fenced yard required


Special thanks to Peg Fuller for transporting him to GHF.
Derbie's Angels
-Sarah Jacket, in memory of my boy, Spot
-Eve Ehrlich & Steve Jensen, Charlie, Skip and Livy ( GHF Alum)

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.

Ella Summary:
- adult home
 - solo dog


Ella's Angels
-Fran & Emily McCloskey
ELLA: A 10 year old tri-color Border Collie, Ella is super friendly, good natured and a classic BC girl - she loves her person and her ball equally! Her ‘summer clip’ hides a beautiful long rough coat so we’ll update her pictures when she’s returned to normal but for now, it’s easy to see that alert, excited ‘gonna throw my ball?’ face! She is good with everyone she meets though nervous with toddlers which is why she was relinquished to GHF. Ella lived in one home since a puppy, long before the babies arrived but like many herding dogs, she does best in an adult home without chaos.Ella is extremely smart, focused and has the energy of a young dog, ready to enjoy the great outdoors with her person! She is good with cats and about 45 pounds. Ella has lived as a solo dog so will be happiest without competing for attention with other dogs around.


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 45 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!

The Farmhouse Sanctuary residents will live out their lives at the Farm.

Peyton Summary:
 - fenced yard required


PEYTON: A 1 year old Border Collie, Peyton is very smart and sweet, content to be with her person cuddling on the couch. She is also a busy, young girl who loves to run and race, enjoying the freedom at GHF. She had a previous situation crated 10-12 hours a day while her guardian worked so we want to give her time to unwind and let the “inner BC” unfold. We’ll update her bio soon and are glad we could be of help to her. She is about 45 pounds and good with cats.  Peyton came from a NY farm.

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 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 is good with 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 Nina & Mike Marciniszyn who kindly opened their home to foster Keira. They have 3 other confiscation dogs
from GHF and understand what she needs.

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.

Molly Summary:
 - invisible fence trained
 - solo dog


Molly's Angel

-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.

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