                  Little REGGIE landed in his new life just in time for his 7 month birthday, tomorrow, on Thanksgiving! He won the hearts of GHF adopters who found their beloved canine friend back in 2002 and returned to find another, all these years later! This smart, fun, sweet guy will get a chance to try some agility, hike in fields near their home and be loved and adored, which is what he really wants, even above his toys! We are so happy for this nice Border Collie to find a loving forever home.

REGGIE: A 6 month old Border Collie, Reggie is a lean boy, full of energy to race and chase and play with the other GHF rescue dogs, having a blast! He’s an adorable boy with the sweetest nature and loves to cuddle with his person, happy to be as close as possible! Reggie is easy going so could easily be the solo dog in a home with someone around a lot or have a canine pal. Reggie is so incredible loving, absolutely the greatest lap dog we’ve seen in rescue in awhile! Reggie is 30 pounds and good with cats. He was given up to being too active for the kids in the home.

Rodie's Angels
Brian & Fiona Roberto
RODIE: An 8 month old Border Collie, Rodie is all legs at this age, with quite a gallop as he learns to cut and turn and keep up with the other young BC’s he’s now meeting. He’s really having a blast playing tug games and making up chase games! He’s never lived with herding dogs but clearly showing some focus, intensity and speed. Rodie would do well with another BC pal who can be playful and burn off some energy. He is super sweet with people and enthusiastic about saying hello, happy to have some cuddles and attention. Rodie loves the water and will instantly jump in for fun! He also loves a good ball toss game, too. Rodie is 35 pounds and best with dog savvy cats. He came to GHF from a guardian with no time for him and unable to handle his energy so was crated excessively.

    JADE joined GHF alum, Bentley to start a new life full of activity that these two love - tons of ball play; plenty of hikes and complete and total love - both will be the center of attention with their FurMom especially who loves the intensity of this breed! The whole family was thrilled to now have two great Border Collies in their life and we are so happy for all of them!

JADE: A 10 month old Border Collie, Jade is very smart and focused, classic BC in her brainpower, looking for something to do. She is also extremely sweet and loves people, everyone, quite the cuddler at home! She is also so incredibly athletic with great intensity and afraid of nothing! She is crazy fast, great off leash and loves her toys, too. She would be a wonderful partner in sports or hiking, needing an active life. She will only be adopted to a BC savvy guardian with another herding dog, preferably male. Jade is about 30 pounds and good with cats. She was relinquished to GHF due to a relationship break-up and move to an apartment. Her NY guardian wanted more for her and we’re glad to be of help

Leo Summary:
 - fenced yard required
canine friend preferred


Special thanks to Donna & Carole Deal for getting Leo to GHF.

Leo's Angel
-The Phillips family
In memory of Jigs and Ripple
LEO: A 1 year old Border Collie, Leo is a doll, joyful, people oriented and of course, toy oriented, too like any young BC! He loves to cuddle and enjoys being by your side but he also absolutely loves other dogs and would be thrilled to have a buddy who likes to play as much as him. He and other young BC’s at GHF, are mixing it up with major chase games every day and he’s happy as can be for that mental and physical stimulation. Leo is a smart boy who easily learns but isn’t overly intense, pushing for a big job. He’s happy about being a companion and adjusts well to new situations. He is good with cats and 45 pounds. Leo came to GHF from a NY home where having two toddlers and Leo just proved to be too much. He lived in one home since a pup.



FIONA: A petite 1 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Fiona is not only adorable, she is smart and sweet and a classic BC through and through! One busy little girl, she loves her toys and will entertain herself if you are busy but sure loves to engage with a great game of tug or retrieval. She has the right body frame to be a great little frisbee dog and is already good off-leash as a hiking partner. Fiona is good with other dogs and could live with another BC buddy though seems just as content as the only dog with all the attention. Fiona is a soft girl so does really well with reassurance and a positive approach to learning. She is about 30 pounds and fine with cats. Fiona was relinquished to GHF by her NY guardian who felt she could not meet her needs.

                  PEYTON found exactly the right guardian for her - someone really experienced with the breed who loves all their quirks as well as their intelligence! A former GHF adopter, he’s come back for his 5th dog from us and now has had a total of 8 in his life. Soon as he met Peyton, he was thrilled to take her home and she cuddled instantly in his lap, voting to go with him for sure! Peyton will have 2 1/2 acres to call her own for tons of fun and enjoy nearby hikes too! We’re really excited for them both - happy birthday Bill!

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 is really wonderful with the person that is ‘hers’, absolutely devoted and loving. She has a great nature, fairly relaxed inside and busy outside, a good combo for a young BC. Peyton is curious, confident and very smart. She had a previous situation crated 10-12 hours a day while her guardian worked so she’s really loved having a more active situation. Peyton has some interest in car chasing so will do best far from traffic sounds She is about 45 pounds and good with cats. Peyton came from a NY farm.

 - adopted together


Special thanks to Ken Lee who made sure they made it safely to GHF.

Maeve & Mick Angels
-Forever grateful to Glen Highland Farm for our beautiful, sweet and amazing girl River!!

MAEVE & MICK: Two year old Border Collies, this pair is clearly bonded and love hanging together…they race and chase and explore at the Farm, happy to see what the world has in store for them. Super friendly, outgoing and joyful, they really keep us chuckling with their enthusiasm for life. They are enjoying all the action at GHF and learning to also enjoy toy play. They have such a good relationship, that we want to keep them together. Mick & Maeve are a nice blend of energy and thoughtfulness with Mick as the well-balanced leader, and petite spitfire Maeve following his direction. Both were strays in VA where a BC lover spotted them, knew about GHF and asked for our help. We’re very happy to have them here. Neither one is good with cats. Maeve is about 25 pounds. Mick about 40.

MARTIE needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Martie Summary:
 - fenced yard required


A very special thanks to Sue Myers who drove an incredibly long distance to get Martie to safety.

MARTIE: A 2 year old Border Collie mix, Martie is a character through and through. He loves his toys, entertaining himself with anything that rolls or tosses into the air. He also really loves to explore the fields at GHF, taking in all the sights, sounds and smells, happy to be alive. Martie is extremely outgoing and loves to say hi to people, full of energy and play. He is a pretty bold fellow, confident and engaged, a large personality. He came to GHF from Virginia where his time was up when dog lovers reached out for help. He is about 45 pounds and not yet tested on cats. We did a DNA test on Martie and he’s part boxer and husky!

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


Pike's Angels
Beat Hellstern & Ziggy
PIKE: A 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.

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

  TANNER found exactly the right people and right canine pal to make his life a blast! He’ll have almost 4 acres to romp and race and chase on with his new pal, plus a pond which he will love, being the water boy that he is! His new guardians really wanted to add a Border Collie or BC mix to their lives and knowing Tanner, we had a strong feeling that he would click with their super physical athletic boy, Shadow. Well, they certainly did with high speed chases around the GHF field as if they had been friends for life! So, Tanner went home to CT to be with his new FurMom 24/7 and live a great life!

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.

JIMMI needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Jimmi Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - rural setting


JIMMI: A 2 year old Border Collie, Jimmi is all action, an amazing athlete who really loves to run, chase and catch frisbees as well as anything else tossed his way! He is very high drive though also very loving once he’s inside and ‘work/play’ is done. Jimmi is only going to a seasoned BC guardian since he needs plenty to do mentally as well as physically. He could be a great hiking partner and also could have another BC pal though it’s not critical to his happiness. Jimmi loves people and is extremely social with everyone however on leash, he will need work since he is over the top in his reactions. He also needs a more rural setting since he reacts to movement of cars and bikes when too close. A recent move to NYC led to these behaviors which is why he was relinquished to GHF. Jimmi is a terrific Border Collie but does need the right setting as well as right adopters who understand the breed. He is good with cats and about 40 pounds.

Special thanks to Olivia Tandon & Brian Vecci who drove Jimmi to GHF

Gus Summary:
solo dog

 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - NO cats


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.

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

Sadie Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - canine
friend -submissive male or solo
 - NO cats


Sadie's Angels
-Pete & Renate Goodloe, Doc & Rosie
Reid and Elliot Roche
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. Sadie is also such an affectionate, cuddly girl, loving to be right in your lap, sweet as can be. She is also a big time thinker, digesting everything around before she decides what she wants to do. 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!

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


Haley's Angel
-Cappy's Woods
Josh & Sharron, Patty & Drake, in memory of Oliver
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

Haley is such a character with unbelievable talent to make us all chuckle!

Shawnee Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - solo dog


Special thanks to Sue Myers for driving Shawnee from PA to GHF so she would have safety in rescue.
Shawnee's Angels
Love from your puppy, Jude
SHAWNEE: A petite 4 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Shawnee is extremely sweet and gentle and hilarious with her toys! We keep trying to get pictures of this girl but she’s afraid of the camera - watching her toss around her toys and zoom around like a puppy, is just adorable! Shawnee is full of personality and such a character 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

Coda Summary:
 - fenced yard required


Coda's Angels
-Lydia & John Henshaw, GHF alum Maggie

CODA: A 6 year old Border Collie mix, Coda is a charmer, full of sweetness and spunk! He absolutely loves his toys, digging for balls in the box, playing a game of two-ball, one in his mouth, the other spun along the floor, pretty cute to watch! He also loves squeaky toys…a real toy man for sure! Coda is pretty easy going and less intense than a purebred but he is focused to play, even entertaining himself. He also loves to explore the outdoors side by side with his person. Coda’s not very happy left alone so would do best with someone around most of the time, where he can happily be a cherished companion. He was abandoned in the overnight ‘box’ at a PA shelter and will need a patient guardian to help him trust he’s not being left alone again. He is about 55 pounds and not yet tested on cats.

A huge thanks to our volunteer transporters: Dick Dumaresq, Sue Myers, Peg Fuller, Janine & Dan Choplick and Erica Snyder who made sure Coda got a lift to GHF. And a big thanks to our transport coordinator, Jane Locacio who made it all possible

ANA 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


Ana's Angels
-Matthew & Nicole Belk, in loving memory of Lexi
-Mike & Nina Marciniszyn, in honor of the puppy mill BC’s who deserve a great life!

ANA: A petite 6 year old Border Collie, Ana is very shy but becoming more courageous as time goes by. 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.

Riley Summary:
 - fenced yard required


RILEY: A 7 year old Border Collie/lab, Riley is adorable. He is fun, good-natured and just plain and simple JOY! This boy knows how to enjoy life and is one happy fellow. A ball toss game gives him great pleasure and he’ll race and chase til he just finally plops down for a rest and then get up and do it all again…classic Border Collie traits. The lab side of him is just easy and fun and aims to please, a very charming combination. We are hoping to help Riley find a fenced yard in his new home so he can really enjoy the freedom of exploring - he loves to run! He also loves to swim! He is about 60 pounds and sweet as can be. Riley has been in one home since he was about a year old and his NY guardians feel someone else could better meet his energy needs since he’s so puppy like and playful which isn’t quite right for their situation.

Riley is in his home in Oneonta NY but can be seen at GHF, by appointment. Please contact his current guardian, David at 607-432-5573 and e-mail at   dshearer@stny.rr.com

Shay Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - submissive male for friend


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

LUCEY needs angels -   click here to learn more
Lucey Summary:
 - bc friends or solo dog


Special thanks to Dennis & Sandy Sprole & Glenn Hinchey who drove a long distance to get her to GHF. 
LUCEY: An 8 year old Border Collie, Lucey acts like a 4 year old, full of play energy and focus, totally a blast! (In fact, her age is an estimate so she really could be younger) She is smart, sweet, and the classic BC brain. Anyone who is in love with this breed, would love Lucey. A total toy maniac, she will endlessly play and enjoy herself even if you are too busy to toss a toy though she’d love it if you would. She listens beautifully and wants to be wherever you are, clearly bonding fast. Lucey loves everyone she meets and has the friendliest nature to say hello and show her wonderful personality. She is great with other Border Collies so could have a buddy or two but could also live alone, like she did previously. Lucey will be on her 3rd home once she leaves GHF, having been first with an elderly person who couldn’t care for her. And, now her previous guardians are starting a family, live in an apartment and have a mother-in-law allergy problem, so Lucey needed another move. We are very happy to help her find her next and final home!! She was living in Canada, 12 hours a day in the apartment while they worked. Lucey is good with cats and about 40 pounds.

ELLA needs angels -   click here to learn more
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.

ELLA is fabulous off-leash and loves the GHF trails and pond, finding the biggest stick ever for big time BC fun!

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.

Layla's Angels
Alexis Ressler, In Honor of McCoy
LAYLA: A 6 year old Border Collie, beautiful Layla is smart, sweet, super loving and eager to say hello to everyone! Layla is a wonderful girl and also VERY pregnant! We’ll soon update her bio once we know all is well, hopefully sharing beautiful pictures and news of puppy arrivals. She will be available for adoption in January. Layla and her BC pal, Luna, both came to GHF after the owner could not care for them and a neighbor stepped in to help keep them safe. They both lived on a large farm setting in NY, working the dairy cows, playing some ball and being companions, too. They lived outside as farm dogs and there is no way to know who the father of the pups is so it’s a mystery!


Special thanks to Ellen & Andy Simcik who are again being foster parents to a Mom & babies, in their home in PA.

NASH needs 3 angels -   click here to learn more
Nash Summary:
  - canine friend(s) preferred


Special thanks to Erica Snyder, Kristine Hammar, Carol Cunningham, Paul Elkins and Norah & Todd Doyle who made sure Nash made it to the Farm

Nash's Angels
-Maureen & Dick Ware Jem & Robby, GHF Alums
NASH: A tiny 5 month old ‘mystery’ pup, Nash must be a Border Collie mix based on his extremely small size yet with teeth of a 5 - 6 month old. He now weighs 12 pounds, the normal size of a small 3 month old BC pup. He is extremely adorable with a super sweet nature and loves toys of all kinds! He is a little overwhelmed with bigger dogs so we had him meet a small 30 pound BC mix who is our ‘puppy mom’. Her fun but calm nature suited him just fine. He was abandoned outside to fend for himself, picked up by someone who spotted him and thankfully took him to a PA shelter where they were happy to have GHF step in to help. Nash was in very rough shape, horribly thin so spent a week at our vet in intensive care to provide the best support. He will also need dental work since the adult teeth are mixed in with puppy teeth. He’ll be ready for adoption once that dental is completed. To help show his very petite size, we tucked him in the lap of one of our Caretakers.

Rossi Summary:
bc friend required
 - special needs


ROSSI: A 3 month old Border Collie, Rossi is sharp as can be, fast and agile and classic in all the BC traits! He loves herding games with other BC’s and also loves his toys. A big time cuddler, he’s a great combination of being people oriented and also confident about the world around him. He would love a BC buddy who plays like he does and also someone around to be a real companion to him! Rossi has special medical needs with Megaesophagus which has been diagnosed fully by Cornell. He also underwent assessment at the University of Missouri for a breakthrough surgery option. At this time, he is not able to have that done but will be retested by March 2017. Once we know the outcome of this additional ‘swallow study’, we’ll be able to understand his needs more fully and if he will be able to benefit from surgery.

Applicants will be considered close to spring 2017.

A huge thanks to Peg Fuller and Tracy Beck who helped with the drive 2200 miles to Missouri

Special thanks to our GHF transporters who kindly found the time to help drive Rossi to the Farm: Jane Locacio, Sue Myers, Kathy Devaney, Scottie & Abby Burkhalter, Dave & Kathy Staff

Milo Summary:
bc friend required
 - fenced yard required


Special thanks to Jeff Beck for transporting Milo to GHF

MILO: A 7 month old Border Collie, Milo is a sweet guy really beginning to blossom. He has some worries with new situations so we want to give him some time at GHF to experience a consistent loving situation with lots of BC play, too. He is so happy having a friend so we’ll want to give him that in a new life. He also loves toys of any kind and really engages with other dogs in toy play, too. Milo came to GHF directly from a BC lover who found him listed on a garage sale facebook site. Fortunately soon as she met him where he was living in a garage in NY, she took him home to be sure he didn’t land in the wrong place. We are glad she asked GHF to help. He is about 35 pounds and not yet tested on cats.

Chaz Summary:
bc friend(s) or solo dog


We have tucked Chaz in a foster home for about a month to learn about a normal living situation in a loving home. Special thanks to Kym Hance for taking in Chaz.

CHAZ is loving the chance to relax in his foster home!

Chaz's Angels
-Michael & Wendy Stahl, Lulu & Teddy ( GHF Alum) & Colby (In spirit)
CHAZ: A 10 month old Border Collie, Chaz is a gorgeous guy with the sweetest nature, happy to say hello to everyone, but a really innocent soul. He can be rather shy and worry with new settings so needs positive reassurance and then his curiosity takes over and he’s happier. This sweet guy has tons of potential but does need a guardian focused on him with a calmer home setting. Chaz is amazing considering he was part of a confiscation situation where he was left to basically fend for himself, with lots of other dogs. He does love to play with other dogs but we’d like to give him a home where he is the main focus so he can blossom further, gaining more confidence in life. He is about 30 pounds and is good with cats. A NY shelter asked for assistance and we were very very glad to help.

Special thanks to Christy & Makayla Luse who made sure Chaz made it safely to GHF.

Special thanks to Kym Hance & her family for fostering Chaz.

LUCY needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Lucy Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - bc friend(s) required


LUCY: A very petite 10 month old Border Collie, Lucy is an adorable girl who loves attention though can be very shy about everything new. She needs a very patient person to guide her through new experiences and give her confidence. Lucy does very well with other dogs and loves to play so another BC mentor pal would be helpful. She is very curious about people and everything around her and when given time to feel safe, she blossoms quickly into being an adorable friend. She is quite charming though very skittish and best for an adult home who has time to focus on her development. Lucy is good with cats and about 25 pounds. Lucy was relinquished directly to GHF from a PA guardian with health issues. She previously lived in an apartment so is adjusting well to more freedom and exploration in a yard.

Special thanks to Kristine Hammar, Sue Myers and Katherine Schule for getting Lucy safely to GHF.

Special thanks to Linda Wood for fostering Lucy.

WYNN needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Wynn Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - bc friend(s) required


WYNN: A 1 year old Border Collie, Wynn is extremely smart and observant, watching everything around him, eager to be involved. He is a confident, curious dog with other Border Collies and loves to engage in high energy play. He also loves toys and will eagerly play a good game with anyone. Wynn has some concerns with new people so will be at the Farm to work on his reactions. We’ll update his bio after a few months. He was originally adopted as a puppy but the home setting accelerated issues that the adopter could not solve.

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.

GOOD NEWS FOR MOLLY! update 9/2:

Her first operation and restricted recovery period is over!  The worst ACL tear is now stable and she has leash walking privileges for 20 minute periods three times a day... she is thrilled! No more crate!! The goal is to have her rely on the improved leg since this one used to be the worst one, basically retraining her gait and walking experience.

Then, once that adjustment is made.. Molly’s 2nd surgery will happen and back to totally restricted exercise, living in a crate. Likely a month of leash walks now and another three months post op recovery. We still anticipate early spring for Molly to be back on the adoptable list!  

For now though, she can be a bit of the busy Border Collie she used to be, with less pain thankfully.  She’s in good hands with Dr. Paul Bookbinder in Syracuse,
always an incredible help to our GHF rescues in need.

Update 10/17:Miss MOLLY is loving the fact that she gets some free time to run and be a normal Border Collie! Having a blast rooming with Tanner and playing non-stop and even better, just free off the leash and feeling more pain free than before! We are thrilled to see her this happy. The goal now is for her to rely more heavily on her surgically repaired back leg and less on the other leg. Soon as that shift is clear, Molly will be back in surgery for her final leg and then months of restrictions again…sorry to say, but at least she is having fun now and will be fully pain free soon!

Brodie Summary:
fenced yard required
 - adult home


Brodie's Angels
Carolyn Jacobson and Logan
BRODIE: An 8 year old petite Border Collie, Brodie is a super thoughtful boy, really observing everything around him before he decides what to do. He is not impulsive in a new situation, clearly a thinker. We want to give him some time at GHF to really unwind, relax and let some worries go. He loves toys and is a joy to watch as he lets loose in play. He also loves to explore all the fields at GHF and is fast and agile as he checks out everything. Brodie is very smart and also sensitive so will only be placed in adult home. He came to GHF from NY guardians who had a toddler that didn’t mix well with him though he was fine with the older child in the home. Brodie is about 35 pounds and not yet tested on cats.

Ginny Summary:

Ginny's Angels
- Renate & Peter Goodloe & GHF alums, Doc & Rosie
GINNY: A petite 12 year old Border Collie, Ginny is a vibrant, observant, curious girl, classic in her BC focus and interest in everything around her! She is on duty already at GHF, keeping track of all the other BC’s and wanting to meet everyone who is part of the rescue. This super sweet, friendly sweetheart is adorable!! She’s just arrived thanks to a PA vet hospital that stepped in to save her life, having been abandoned for euthanasia. Her previous guardians no longer wanted to care for her which was quite evident in seeing her condition. She is being treated now for a tough skin problem that left her hairless in many places on her body as well as suffering from extremely dry, itchy skin. She is also very badly underweight. The neglect in Ginny’s care is now being righted so we hope to give her more time in a healthier, happier condition. She is 30 pounds and good with cats. She clearly loves her toys though is not too interested in sharing any attention with a dog friend so she’s happily a solo dog at GHF. A special thanks to Dr. Jennifer Carpenter who reached out to GHF for help.

One of our volunteer transporters, Richard Thompson, had this to say about just how special Ginny is:
Ginny was a perfect lady on our leg of the transport and seemed like an old friend after being with her for only an hour. One highlight of the trip was when she first settled into her bed with a far off look. Then I said "Hey, Ginny Girl, do you want to go for another ride?"  Her head picked up, her ears perked up (as much as they can anyway), and her eyes got big as she looked at me in amazement that I actually knew her name and was giving her attention. Then she settled into a peaceful sleep. But whenever I got out of the car, she was right up at the window to check out why I was leaving her. Her heart is wide open for a new, special person. She is indeed a sweet gem.

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