LOUIE is approximately 10 months - 1 year old and needs a special rescue and foster home to help provide structure so he can handle life better. He really craves a close connection with a person and he’s super sweet, sticking close by. Louie learns quickly and a routine helps him settle down well. He loves his toys and will play with them, making up games that are pretty inventive! Louie is fearless and gets around well outside, amazingly aware of where he needs to be or not be.

His previous home had no idea what to do with him so while he has been loved, he is chaotic and confused by how to respond to everything. He barks a great deal and being blind, his movements can stress other dogs, especially if there are many Border Collies in the setting so would be best with less stimulation. He is fine with everyone he meets as well as cats.

He is NOT aggressive in any way at all, just very busy compounded by his deficiency. We are hoping for a skilled rescue to take him in. Louie is housetrained and crate trained. 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. He has rabies vaccine as well as his first parvo/distemper shot, has been wormed.

Maggie Summary:
  - bc friend preferred


MAGGIE: A little 3 month old powerhouse, Maggie knows what she likes and she’s not shy about going after it..a sweetheart with people, we’re pretty sure Maggie is going to be a lead dog with other dogs. She’s super smart, watches everything around her and then figures out what she wants to do next. Maggie loves to play with toys and will engage with another BC buddy easily, creating a game of tug so we’d prefer to place her with a male BC pal to give her more dimension in her life. Maggie is also a big cuddler and loves attention though you can see her wheels turning as she meets new people, sorting the ‘who is who’ in every situation. Maggie is 10 pounds, normal in size for her age. She is good with cats. Maggie will only be placed in a BC savvy home.

Mel Summary:
  - canine friend preferred


MEL: An adorable 3 month old Border Collie, probably mix, Mel’s ears keep changing, giving her the looks to match her personality - she’s precious! She is a thoughtful girl with good body/mind coordination, agile in her movements but calculated with her thoughts. A sensitive gentle soul, she’s delightful to get to know, a really special pup. Mel is clearly a female BC sorting through all that goes on around her, deciding what seems right to her, then going for it! She loves to play with other dogs but doesn’t need to be in charge of the action, just seemingly joining in cause it’s the right thing to do. She is food motivated and eager to learn so could be fun to teach. Mel has a big personality in this little 10 pound body and she’s good with cats.

The ever changing "EARS" ....

    ZIGGY is going to have a blast in his new life, getting to try every dog activity you can imagine - agility, freestyle, herding, obedience, swimming - his new FurMom loves to find challenging activities for all her canine pals. As she said, ‘I’m happiest watching how happy they are when they do things they love to do!” She adored Ziggy soon as he landed in her lap for a big hello, Ziggy style. Then watched as he hit it off with her big boy, Ace, making up chase games together. This great trio unfolded right before our eyes and felt like the ideal life for Ziggy. Now named after a baseball great, Mookie aka Ziggy, is about to have a grand life!!!

ZIGGY: A 4 month old Border Collie, possibly mix, Ziggy is an adorable, fun-loving, sweet character. He is a little sensitive so does well with reassurance when he encounters new situations like new dogs or new people. He’s very friendly once settled and very smart - figuring out puzzle games in minutes! He likes a challenge but isn’t too demanding so a bit more easy going than a purebred. He loves to play with other dogs and does best having a confident, easy going canine pal to help him relax easily. A rough and tumble player, a friend would be ideal. Ziggy also loves the water and will play in it all day! He is 35 pounds and is good with cats. He and the pups at the Connor House are loving their new Puppy Playground, donated by Tracy & Jeff Beck, in honor of founder pups, Ema & Kiely.

Joy Summary:
  - fenced yard required


JOY: A 4 month old Border Collie, Joy is a focused girl, even at a young age. She really pays attention to everything around her and step by step, decides what she wants to do. She has great eye/body coordination and could have good potential for sports. She loves toys and loves people. She is strategic in her interactions with adult dogs, sorting out who they are, what toy they have and how she can get it, quite a clever pup. Joy is affectionate and sweet, loving attention and cuddling but also needs something to capture her mind. She is a thinker, not overly bold but curious and actively engaged with everything around her. She is about 15 pounds, normal size for her age.

Mirra Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - bc friend preferred


MIRRA: A 4 month Border Collie, Mirra is a gorgeous liver color, very striking in person. She’s a lovely, sweet girl who seeks out attention from people she knows and really craves a strong bond. Mirra is a gentle soul yet spirited and starting to realize she’s a Border Collie! One clear choice for her is a BC buddy cause she adores other dogs and she’s right at ease having a canine pal. Mirra is becoming quite the ball girl and she’s strengthening her body/eye coordination the more she gets a chance to really run and play! She is smart and athletic, and loves the water. Mirra is likely to be a full sized 40-45 pound adult and now about 25 pounds. She is fine with cats. Mirra was too much for her previous guardian who lived in a tiny apartment.

 Little ANNA has some big shoes to fill as the important first pup for her FurMom and Dad’s daughter. Anna’s new canine pals enjoyed walking the field at the Farm as they came to meet a few pups but it was little Anna that sealed the deal, the absolutely perfect fit for everyone. This important new friendship will change both lives with a heartfelt connection that lasts forever. We’re so happy to watch this all unfold as it was meant to be. So, not only has Anna found her work, she’ll get to play at the nearby ocean and even get to try agility!

ANNA: A 3 month old Border Collie, Anna is very thoughtful and observant, classic like many female Bc’s. She is already testing her ability to be in charge and focuses easily on whatever interests her. Super smart, Anna is confident but not bold, taking her time deciding what she wants to do. She will only be placed in a BC savvy home where her needs are understood. She is now at the Farm and ready for adoption

Tori Summary:
 - canine friends preferred
 - NO cats


TORI: A very petite 5 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 and prefers they don’t crowd her so does well with mature dogs. She is only 18 pounds and we suspect will stay quite petite. She is not good with cats. Tori was relinquished directly to the Farm from a PA guardian who could not handle her needs.

Bailee Summary:
 - bc experience required
 - fenced yard required


BAILEE:  A 7 month old Border Collie, Bailee is a very, very sweet girl and a very intense BC, too. She loves action and is fast, focused and agile.  She has great toy interest and is happiest when she’s busy.  She is good with other dogs but might do best as a solo dog where she can have a very close relationship working with someone without distraction. She’ll be a fabulous hiking partner once she’s bonded and joins other BC’s, loving the action of running, swimming and herding games. She has some interest in cars at this point since her first home was unfenced and the people had no idea what to do with her natural drive.  Bailee is very smart and will learn easily in the right hands. Bailee will need a seasoned Border Collie guardian who really understands how to channel this drive productively. Bailee is not right for anyone new to the breed.   She is fine with cats and about 30 pounds.  She came to GHF from a Ny guardian who bought her as a ‘cute puppy"

Olly Summary:
 - canine friend preferred
 - fenced yard required
 - NO cats


Olly loves the water...

OLLY: An 8 month old Border Collie mix, Olly is super smart, eager to learn and loves life. He is exuberant in all he does, whether it’s dog play, toy play or racing around. Full of energy, he’s quickly learning to really use his mind focusing on the activities around him. Olly is blossoming at GHF and just beginning to open up his potential. He will do best with an adopter used to herding breeds since he needs an outlet for his energy. He is also super affectionate and cuddly, really loving attention from everyone he meets. Olly often leaps into your lap for a big hello and then races off for fun, all in one motion! He is about 40 pounds and is not good with cats. He was relinquished directly to GHF by a Ny guardian who could not meet his needs.

Special thanks to Mary champagne for fostering Olly in CT.

 Wonderful OREN landed a life that he really deserves and we’re sure he will love - five acres to call his own plus a pond, some sheep, chickens and a BC pal who likes to chase balls like he does - it’s perfect! His new guardians fell in love with his sweet, friendly nature and were thrilled to see how well he fit their girl, Saja. The two of them raced for the ball with great enthusiasm and then headed in for a rest and lots of love and attention. Oren will clearly be cherished.

OREN: An 8 month old Border Collie, Oren is a gorgeous guy with a wonderful spirit, very, very sweet and gentle. He is a ‘soft’ BC, needing reassurance at times but also bold, once settled and eager to jump into the fun with other BC’s. Oren loves to herd other dogs so would do well with another BC buddy who could really be his friend, making up herding games together. He is smart and eager to please, just starting to really learn about life and he's starting to enjoy toys now that someone is connecting to him to bring out his drive to play. Oren is good with cats and about 40 pounds.

Gyp Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - canine friend(s) required
 - adult home


GYP: An 8 month old Border Collie, Gyp is a delightful, sweet girl who is really beginning to understand she is a BC! She’s now pals with other GHF rescues and starting to intently herd in chase games. She’s also starting to retrieve and enjoy ball tosses herself. While Gyp was loved in her previous home, her mental connection to a person was not fully explored so we’re watching her now change day by day, within a very short time. Gyp will be placed in an adult home with another BC friend. She’s a lovely, smart girl with tons of potential. She is good with cats, and is about 35 pounds. She was relinquished to GHF due to an inability to meet her needs. She is from the NY area.

 ZEUS found a wonderful life with two GHF alums, Brenna & Rudy, joining them for a life of so much fun and love, he won’t believe it! We know his new guardians well since they’ve visited two other times and then on a Getaway vacation so this hand-picked boy is now truly home, forever. He overnighted with his new FurMom and her son, enjoyed hiking on the trails and swimming in the creek, making a few fun-filled nights the start of a great life together. Zeus will be trained for therapy work, like Rudy, both big heart dogs with important jobs to do.

ZEUS: A 9 month old Border Collie mix, Zeus is a love, just the nicest, friendliest guy around. He loves everyone and happily says hello to any person nearby…clearly people are wonderful in his book! Zeus is easy going, not overly intense in his focus like a purebred, really more enjoying some play and running games with canine pals and then cuddles with his person. Zeus would be a wonderful companion where he also had a canine pal…he really loves to play with another active dog though not needing to be a BC. He has no herding focus so his play is more wrestling and chase. He also loves balls and lots of toy play. He truly wants to be with people so needs someone devoted to his happiness and development. In his previous home, he was too much energy and due to landlord issues, they relinquished him directly to GHF. He is good with dog savvy cats and about 50 pounds. He is trained on the Invisible Fence system. He came from VA.

Miley Summary:
 - sport potential
 - fenced yard required
 - NO cats


Miley's Angel

MILEY: A tiny 1 yr old Aussie/Cattle dog mix, this girl is full of spunk and attitude and ready to go! A little spitfire, she loves toys and tugging and learning so could be a fun sport dog. She’s not overly driven but just enough to enjoy challenges, then after some fun, she loves to rest next to you. Very people oriented, she would love someone who wanted that special little dog to take everywhere. Miley is an assertive female so best with male dogs or dogs used to little dogs who think they are big! or she could enjoy life as a solo dog. She is about 20 pounds and not good with cats. Though GHF is devoted to Border Collies in need, we just couldn’t pass up this gorgeous girl who needed to get out of the shelter in PA. Fortunately, the shelter works with GHF and asked for help.

Miley loves the water and is quite the swimmer!

Special thanks to Sue Myers, Amy Galford and Gail Hartman who helped get her to GHF.

Livy Summary:
 - solo dog preferred
 - fenced yard preferred


Livy loves to swim and hike the trails at GHF, loving the freedom!

Livy's Angel
Quill, GHF alum
LIVY: A 1 year old Border Collie, Livy is a very intelligent, sensitive girl, observing everything around her. She is thoughtful and needs time to understand new people and her relationship to them, step by step. Super friendly once settled, she tends to be cautious rather than boldly assuming she can be everyone’s best buddy. Livy is very quick to bond once she loves you and is extremely loving and loyal. Quite the cuddler too! She is happiest as the solo dog, being the center of attention though she’s fine hanging with other dogs for outdoor fun. A super sweet, affectionate girl, Livy has that female BC attitude where she’s orderly and able to take command of other dogs so they listen, very typical of the girls. She is super smart and will really thrive with a person who understands the mental nature of a sensitive girl. Livy loves life and loves her toys and special person, too, all equally! Livy is fine with cats and about 35 pounds. She might be able to live unfenced but only with the right savvy guardian. She was relinquished to the Farm from NY.

Hunter Summary:
 - canine friend preferred

 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - dog savvy cats


Hunter's Angels
-Olivia Tandon and Brian Vecci
-Quill GHF alum

HUNTER: A 1 year old Border Collie, Hunter is a super smart, focused, toy oriented dog and he’s maturing into quite a thinker, very strategic in what he does and how he does it! He loves other herding dogs, making up chase games so would enjoy a BC buddy. But he also loves the mental stimulation of learning so he would be best suited to someone who really loves an intellectual connection with their dog, really developing a close bond. Hunter is only going to be placed with a BC savvy guardian who really understands the mental, physical and emotional aspects of this breed. He is a great hiking partner and loves to be wherever his person goes. Hunter is about 40 pounds and will chase cats so best with dog savvy cats. He was relinquished to GHF as his NY guardian realized she could not meet his needs properly

Kenai Summary:
 - invisible fence trained
 - canine friend(s) REQUIRED


Special thanks to Kierston Anderson, Sue Myers and Debbie Grassi for transporting her to GHF.

Kenai's Angel
-Twist, BC rescue
-Lynn and Larry Adelsohn  
KENAI: A petite 1 year old Border Collie mix, Kenai is a lovely, funny girl with tons of personality! A big GHF favorite, she comes out to meet all the vacationers on tours and wins over everyone! A super friendly girl, she is also fast and agile and loves to play with toys as well as other dogs. She’s had a canine pal since she was a pup, so really loves being with another dog. We will only place with another dog since she surely needs a pal for chasing and running around, a male is best. Kenai is super friendly and loves everyone. She came from PA guardians who were moving. She is trained on the invisible fence. Kenai is about 30 pounds and is good with cats.

 NIKA found the perfect person to become her partner in life, enjoying all the fun stuff: human and canine, together! Their chemistry was instant with comfortable cuddling, hiking in the fields and walks on the trails while she was here for a Getaway vacation. Nika loved it all and they clearly bonded! Those country hikes will continue in her new life, as well as going everywhere else they can, quite a team. We’re so happy to see Nika receive all the focused attention she so deserves.

NIKA: A petite 2 year old Border Collie, Nika is a charmer, very attentive and thoughtful, sorting through everything around her, clearly a thinker! She is super sweet and playful once she knows what’s going on and happy to see everyone she knows. She’s a great toy girl too, happy to entertain herself and play. She will need a savvy guardian who gives her time to digest new situations and not overwhelm her. As smart as she is, with the right guidance, she does beautifully. Nika has lived with Kenai for the past year so likes having a canine friend. As we get to know her, we’ll update her bio as to whether she would be happiest as a solo dog or with a pal. She and Kenai were surrendered to GHF by PA guardians who had to move. She is 30 pounds and is good with cats. She lived outside, trained on the invisible fence.

Remey Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - other canine friends preferred


Remey's Angel
-Stacey Greenberg
Logi, GHF alum
REMEY: A petite 1 year old Border Collie, possibly mix, Remey is a fast, fun, focused, "got to go" boy. He loves to race and chase with other dogs and is quite the ball boy. He’s very driven when playing and not up for sharing but it’s all enthusiasm for his love of retrieving. Remey is very people oriented and connects quickly to anyone around him, super friendly and right in your lap. He easily adjusted to the action at the Farm and fit in with another petite BC mix, Lexey, instantly. They are having a blast together. Remey also loves the water, happily splashing around making up his own fun! Remey is good with cats and about 35 pounds. He was relinquished to a PA shelter that fortunately works with GHF.


 Wonderful, sweet, funny BO found new guardians who adore his gentle nature and were also totally charmed by his lap dog antics - a true love bug! Former GHF adopters, they wanted a less intense BC this time, a bit more easy going, friendly, and a real buddy to join their lives - Bo fit perfectly! He’ll have two acres to call his own, a place to go swimming and join his FurDad for work sometimes, hanging in the truck as he travels around. We know Bo will love this new life.

BO: A 1 year old Border Collie mix, Bo is the sweetest guy..he truly is friendly the minute he sees you…no hesitation at all. We feel he’s BC/Collie cause his nature is so gentle and he is so light on his feet, very agile and moves swiftly and beautifully. Bo so wants a play friend, eagerly inviting every Border Collie to play though most just want to herd or catch the ball. Bo is definitely a boy who needs a buddy for chasing and racing games. He’s a submissive guy and easily lets the purebred BC’s be the boss but he’d much rather have a pal for fun! He loves to cuddle and be in your lap, not realizing he’s outgrown those puppy days. We all just think he’s a doll. Bo will need an invisible fence system since he can monkey over a normal hard fence. Bo is about 50 pounds and will chase cats outdoors but is fine with indoor cats, probably ideal if they are dog savvy.  We will update his bio once we see how he does with indoor cats. He was relinquished to the Farm from an elderly couple who felt he was way too much for them.



Lexi is having a blast with a petite friend, just her size - Remey - racing and chasing and making up endless games.

Lexi's Angel
Tracey Akitt
LEXI: A petite 1 1/2 year old Border Collie mix, Lexi is a hoot! She gets the zoomies and races around like a maniac, happy to play with a person or a dog! She loves other dogs and all the fun that goes with having a friend. She’s just landed at GHF so not sure whether she needs a canine pal for her utmost happiness or being with her human matters most. We’ll update her bio as we get to know her better. Lexi is sweet as can be, very affectionate with everyone, quite the cuddler. She is pretty confident in new situations and handling everything well. She was in a PA shelter for 3 months, picked up as a stray, thankfully for us the shelter works with GHF. She is about 30 pounds and is good with cats.

Special thanks to Jeff Beck,  Sue Myers, Amy Galford and Gail Hartman for helping transport Lexi to GHF.

Jersie Summary:
 - canine friend required

 - fenced yard REQUIRED


Jersie's Angels
Marilyn, Bill, Jakki, Gabe and Nicky
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

Shane Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - other canine friends preferred


Shane absolutely loves the water! He loves swimming & hiking GHF trails, quite the athlete, with great recall!

Shane's Angel
Tracey Akitt
SHANE: A 2 year old Border Collie/Aussie mix, Shane is a smart guy with lots of fun energy - he can literally leap off the ground all four feet to catch a toy or treat. He’s fun and quite the character, too! Shane does have a full teethy grin which makes us all laugh. He is really starting to unwind at GHF no longer crated all day from his previous situation so we expect to update his bio as he’s here longer. He has a classic aussie style of physical play and really enjoys another dog who can match this. Always a busy canine player, he’ll be happiest with a fur Buddy! Shane does really bond closely to a person and sticks right by your side so is likely to do well as a hiking partner, too. He is 45 pounds and is good with cats. He was relinquished to the Farm from PA guardians who had a change in their work situation and felt he was home alone too long. He lived in one home since a pup.

Glen Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - other canine friends preferred
 - dog savvy cats


Special thanks to Liz Shaw and Naomi Johnston who helped get Glen to rescue.
Glen's Angels
Stewart & Brenda Beck

GLEN: A 2 year old Border Collie/Aussie mix, Glen is a gorgeous guy with tons of energy! He loves to play and make up race and chase games with other herding dogs. He’s fast and fun and ready for action at any time. Glen is a sweet guy who really likes people. He lived with a fearful Border Collie so often barks at someone new but Glen is blossoming quickly here at GHF and adjusting well, so we’ll update his bio as we get to know him now that he’s on his own. We do see that he loves other dogs so we’d like to find him a confident outgoing canine pal. He loves attention and is enjoying all the freedom to run and then play ball, too! Glen has an interest in the motion of traffic so will need a more rural setting and fenced yard.  He is about 40 pounds and best with dog savvy cats.

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
-Shuck's Border Collies
-Lara Avery
-the Bowers/Paterson family in honor of Kasey, Kenzie and in loving memory for our Kelsey and Kylie, who are waiting for us at the Rainbow Bridge

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 not yet tested on 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


Special thanks to Ellen Simcik, Joanne Cook, Tony & Debbie Grassi, Donnie Ross and Erica Snyder , who transported Haley to GHF
Haley's Angels
John Chenosky, Susan Lane, Kaylee & Norman
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. Not yet tested on cats, Haley is about 40 pounds. She came to GHF from a PA shelter, moved north after having puppies.

 ANNI, now named LUX, has found her person, the one she knows will help her life unfold exactly as it’s supposed to…lots of ball play, lots of hikes and lots of love! But, even more, they are kindred spirits, finding each other on a very heartfelt level, reunited. Her new FurMom met Anni on a GHF tour while vacationing here and felt so drawn to her, she rearranged her entire schedule to quickly return to spend an overnight. The pull back to Anni was very strong and once she spent the night, she was certain, this was ‘her dog’. Watching Anni was amazing for us to witness because their connection was clearly very special. Ever humbling, rescue is always about souls together on a journey.

ANNI: A 5 year old Border Collie, Anni loves her toys, especially ball retrieval and she is great at it! Super focused, she stalks and stares and crouches, waiting for that perfect throw. Quite the athlete, Anni loves her ‘work’. She is also a great hiking partner, really gorgeous as she runs ahead, always tracking where you are, with her. Anni plays a ‘hide-n-seek’ game peeking out from behind trees, waiting for you to catch up! She is good with other dogs but mostly, indifferent, much more focused on her human partner. Anni is suited to an adult home where someone understands her mental needs and really engages her in a respectful, intelligent way. She doesn’t like the chaos of family life and being crowded by lots of people also makes her uncomfortable. Anni is a very special girl with a brilliance that shines through soon as you spend time with her. She is good with cats and about 40 pounds. She was relinquished directly to GHF from a NY city setting by a young couple now focused on their toddler and living in a family neighborhood. Anni had previously been their sole focus.

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 Angels
-Shuck's Border Collies
-Sandra & Carlos Iglesias
-Susan Strange

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.

Ana’s foster Mom shares the latest 7/20/15: Now that Ana is out exploring the big world, her personality is really beginning to shine so we are finally seeing the dog she will become. She LOVES to go for walks. I do keep the 30' line on her just in case, but I do not hold it. When we first head out for our walks, she just tears around with a bad case of the zoomies. In and out of the tall grass, back and forth, around and around. She seems to sense when she's gotten too far away from me, and will stop and wait for me to catch up. Once we turn around and head back, she's all border collie. Stays behind or beside me. She has wonderful recall. She will come toward you and touch you with her nose. Occasionally she will allow a pat on the head, or a scratch under the chin. Inside, she is now allowing us to approach her and touch her while she is on her dog bed (safe spot). If she makes an attempt to move away, she will come right back.

Special thanks to Anne Cattaneo for fostering Ana in Vermont.

Mickey Summary:
 - solo dog
 - adult home
 - fenced yard required
 - NO cats


Mickey's Angel
In memory of my soul mate, my fur nephew Spot
MICKEY: A 7 year old Border Collie, Mickey is a smart, focused, ready to be by your side guy. He is great off leash and loves to hike plus he is a serious frisbee nut. He's played a lot of frisbee in his earlier years so still loves it! He also loves balls of any kind and is a fast guy for a toss! Mickey is good with other dogs but is a bit herding oriented so best as a solo dog where he can be the only BC around. He loves attention, is super friendly and cuddles instantly with anyone cause everyone is a friend to Mickey. Mickey can be a sensitive guy who worries a bit when he’s in a new situation so does best with a patient guardian who understands all the changes he’s gone through being abandoned and gives him time to settle in. He’s a thinker so observes everything around him, making sense of how he can fit in and what he can do to be a good boy, which matters to him. Mickey aims to please! He was surrendered to the Farm by PA guardians due to a move. He is not good with cats. He is about 45 pounds

 ROSIE landed the ideal life for her with two loving guardians who adore her, as well as a pal, GHF alum, DOC! She won their hearts with her remarkably sweet nature as they hiked the Farm trails with both dogs as part of their Getaway vacation.  Rosie and Doc settled into an easy routine like they’d lived together all their lives.  Her new FurMom and FurDad couldn’t be happier to add another loving BC who truly deserves to be cherished.

ROSIE: A 9 year old Border Collie, Rosie is spectacular - responsive, smart, eager to bond, involved in everything around her and ready to go, go, go! This beautiful girl has all the classic traits of a BC with brains and heart. She chooses people as her main interest, thrilled for a cuddle, though she’s quite the herder and keeps tabs on all the action including cars, too. Rosie will need to live in more rural setting, with a fenced yard where traffic is not in sight. She is indifferent to other dogs so we are assessing what would make her happiest, being a solo dog or having a compatible friend. She is about 45 pounds and good with cats. Rosie is loving the ability to explore at GHF, all the fields and dogs and people, truly quite the ambassador of the BC world.

Gillie Summary:
 - adult home


Gillie's Angel
-Tracey Akitt
-Harriet Guberman

GILLIE: A 9 year old Border Collie, Gillie is a super 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. As you get to know her, she’s quite lovely, a gentle spirit with a curious nature to check things out. Very smart and very attentive to everything around her. Gillie really comes to life with other Border Collies around so as we’re getting to know her, we’ll update her bio as to whether BC buddies are best for her new life. 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 fear of children who make her very nervous and their scheduled move to a family neighborhood. Around kids, 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 60 pounds and with exercise at the Farm, will trim down. She is good with cats and submissive with other dogs.

 Miss MOLLY found guardians who adore this breed, having had two from GHF and now, a third. Their deep understanding of the intelligence of a working dog, gives them great respect for the dogs that join their family. Soon as they met Molly, first thing they both said was, ‘she’s a classic, just a love’. Both were thrilled to have Molly come home with them and we know she’ll love her new life as their 24/7 companion. Molly will have acres and acres to explore plus water for swimming and the rural life she clearly loves. She’ll be joined by another GHF alum (not pictured). We are thrilled for this marvelous girl to find the life she so deserves.

MOLLY: A 10 year old Border Collie, Molly is full of personality, quite a character. She loves her balls and kong, for a good game of fetch, with anyone who will join in! And, she is happy to go at it, again and again, of course. Molly is so sweet, very eager to please and adjusts easily to new situations and people. One reason she’s so flexible is because she’s spent her life chasing geese and worked with many people in many places. As she’s aged, the work became too tough on her so retirement finds her at GHF and we’re thrilled to have her here. Molly has great recall, turns on a dime soon as she hears her name and loves to be part of any action anywhere!. A delightful girl, Molly would love a life where work was play!! She is about 50 pounds and good with cats. She came from a NJ geese chasing company though Molly lived inside the home, not in the kennels.

ASHER: An 11 year old Border Collie, Asher is a sweet, gentle soul who truly catches your attention quickly, so happy to say hello to everyone! Asher is quite the diplomat for the breed!  He is a spectacular boy who clearly wants people to be with him. He loves to play frisbee, a tad slower at this point since he’s carrying way too much weight but the desire is there and there’s no stopping him from going for it!  He is good natured, gets along beautifully with the other BC’s. Asher lived in a multiple dog household and fit in at the Farm easily.  He is fine with cats.  His story is a sad one where he was left 12 hours a day alone, no one willing to even let him outside.  Asher thankfully landed at GHF and we are really happy to help him renew his energy to find more purpose in life. Fortunately, that shelter where he was abandoned, works with GHF.

ASHER loves to herd other dogs and instantly comes to life, keeping up with all the crowd half his age! We’d love to find a home with at least one other ball dog who wouldn’t mind being herded!
(see Asher in action!)

Asher loves the new Christmas bed!

Grace & Annie Summary:
- adopted together or separate


Their diagnostics: bloodwork, urine and thyroid checked out great and we are now giving them a dental which has been desperately needed for years. Both are on pain meds for weakened back-ends, normal for this age BC.

Special thanks to Janine & Dan Choplick and Sue Myers for transporting the girls safely to the Farm.

Grace and Annie's Angels
Peg, Mike Ollie, Stanley and Tripp
Peter & Renate Goodloe & Doc!
GRACE (left) and ANNIE are 12 year old sisters who’ve spent their lives together, playing ball and being classic Border Collies! They have all the smarts and agile natures to have enjoyed whatever they tackled, especially ball play. And, today, they are still ball fanatics! These two so remind us of the old style of BC that thinks about everything around them, before deciding what to do…clearly smart as can be, focused as can be and ready to go! Just adorable, both of them. They get along with other dogs beautifully and have joined a pack of 10 in the GHF yard. They slid into the Farmhouse Sanctuary without a bit of trouble and seem pretty excited by all the action around them. However, we know they would love the attention of their own person again. Both are good with cats. They landed at GHF due to a new relationship causing their guardian to move. They can be adopted together or separately.

Addie Summary:
- friends or solo dog OK


Addie's Angel
Dan Roskowsky
Lu Ann Heller
ADDIE: A 12 1/2 year old Border Collie, Addie is not only a gorgeous girl, she is so much fun! Meeting Addie makes the word senior seem completely wrong - she is active, focused, loves her ball game and is ready to go, go, go.. seriously this is one athletic drivey Border Collie.. we can just imagine what she was like when she was younger!  Addie is also extremely good-natured and loves everyone she meets, very easy going, even about the change to a new life.  Clearly, Addie thinks life is grand now with tons to do and lots of BC buddies but she’d trade it all for a human friend to call her own who makes her the center of attention. Addie is a great swimming, really enjoying being in the water!  She lived in one home since a pup but a divorce and work change left her in need of a new home.  Addie is smart as a whip and a joy to be around. She is good with other dogs and cats.  About 35 pounds, Addie is in great health.  She came from a home in NJ.

Special thanks to Peg Fuller for making sure Addie got a ride 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


Keira's Angels
-Shuck's Border Collies
-Elaine Wilson - In honor of Ike

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. She’s curious and even has some herding instincts, absolutely loving the herding games. She has now moved to a foster home with ex-Sprakers BC Keenan and now she’s racing around with toys in her mouth!  She’s maneuvering around the house almost like normal, a bit nervous but oh so very brave so we know with more time, she’ll really transform. Keira is so gentle and incredibly sweet, starting to enjoy the affectionate touch of humans. Keira 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.

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

Benny Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - canine friends required


Benny's Angel
Luann Madison

BENNY: A 2 1/2 year old Border Collie, Benny is sweet and affectionate and just loves to cuddle up to you when hanging in the house. He's also a typical active BC that will play with any kind of ball - retrieving tennis balls and jolly balls. He's quite fast with his long legs and athletic body. Benny loves to race, chase and wrestle with other dogs that like to play. He's in a foster home learning to overcome his fears when meeting strangers so he'll do best with another confident Border Collie to be his mentor. He will only be placed into a home with an experienced person that understands how to work with fear issues. Benny is doing well in a more rural setting vs the more populated suburban setting he was in. He's finally beginning to relax and is starting to meet new people slowly, using positive reinforcement, without overwhelming him. Benny came from a shelter in NH that reached out to GHF for help. Ben and Glen were given up because of financial difficulties. They are being rehomed separately. Benny is about 40 pounds and good with cats.

Special thanks to Susan Monnelly for fostering Benny in NH.

Sprite's Angel
Renate & Pete Goodloe, Rosie & Doc
SPRITE:  A 5 year old Border Collie, Sprite is starting a new life and one day soon, we hope she believes it's as great as we know it can be. Coming from the tough history as a breeding dog, she has clearly suffered an emotional toll.  It’s been awhile since we’ve had such a burdened BC land here but everyone at GHF knows that healing is possible and there will be a brighter, happier dog ahead.  We’ll update her bio and pictures as she progresses. She’s a sweet girl with a gentle nature.  Thankfully she made it to GHF with the help of another rescue who pulls dogs out of puppy mills.

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