We are closed for hiatus the entire month of October (it’s our annual break).
There will be no adoptions or new dogs accepted into rescue during Oct.

 SPECK found the perfect home with a former GHF adopter who wanted to add another BC to her pack and knew he would fit like a glove! His sharp focus and fabulous temperament was the combo she wanted for agility and Speck instantly showed off his brilliance when they met. The match is perfect for both..he’s joining a herding canine pack which he loves and has a new FurMom who will keep him busy, busy, busy which he is!! Speck now lives in NJ and we can’t wait to see what cool activities he excels in doing!

SPECK: A 8 month old Border Collie, Speck is full of spunk, ready to race, chase, and join in any BC games.  He is extremely focused and very, very smart, so aware and tuned into everything  - a very classic, wonderful young BC boy! Speck is also super friendly, people oriented and confident. A good natured boy, he could easily join a BC home and would love a canine herding pal! While he’s extremely good-natured, Speck needs something to capture his mind with focused engagement or he’ll find his own job! he’d be great in sports of any kind. One of the nicest dogs to land in rescue, he is also best for BC savvy guardians who understand his mental, physical and emotional needs. (Speck will only be placed BC savvy adopters who understand the breed.) He easily mixes with other BC’s and loves to make up herding games. He is about 35 pounds and good with cats.

A little pup named Ashley, now named Ginger came to GHF in 2008. Her adoptive Mom hoped for an agility career and now in 2016, she reviewed just how much fun they have had together!!!  A big success to celebrate and now she is adopting Speck and excited to start again with another young rescue dog from GHF!!!

Here they are- Ginger's agility career on the table. Her MACH's and PACH is represented, but this photo excludes most of the other fancy big title and tournament ribbons that were on another display. In the future, I think I will only take the big ribbons to begin with. 

         RUDY found the perfect life for him - a BC buddy and loving guardians who adore the breed plus two houses, one in the suburbs and one in the country with 45 acres to call his own! Rudy will love plenty of hiking trips as well as lots of ball play cause his new FurMom and FurDad design their lives around their dogs. They came to vacation at the GHF Getaway and had a desire to add another dog since they were used to having two. A meeting with Rudy and their Sadie, led them to return quickly to meet him again and take him home! Rudy now lives in PA with lots of time in the Adirondacks too!

RUDY: A 7 month old Border Collie, Rudy is changing so fast, learning all about being a herding dog, that he’s amazing to watch! He’s become super fast, agile and eager to move with focus. He’s gaining more intensity and clearly needs a BC pal to keep up with his energetic needs. He is also incredibly loving and sweet, and quite the character. Full of personality, he is best for BC savvy guardians who understand the breed. Rudy loves toys, other dogs and pretty much anything and everything he’s exposed to - like a sponge, he is one happy boy! He was living in a totally inappropriate situation with no room for exercise or anyone to understand him. He is fine with cats and about 30 pounds.

             AIDAN joined a canine pal we know from vacationing at GHF, just a perfect pairing. His new guardians wanted an easy going fellow to add to their lives and soon as they spent time with Aidan, it was love! Now named MILO, he is enjoying play with his canine buddy as well as lots of time with his new FurMom & FurDad who couldn’t be happier. He lives in Ct

AIDAN: A 6 month old Border Collie mix, Aidan is a super friendly, good natured, outgoing boy. He truly loves to join in the action and will easily make friends with everyone! He also accepts other dogs beautifully and would love having a canine pal for chase games. Aidan is energetic but not as intense as a purebred so will easily be a great companion for an active person. He’s smart as a whip and loves to learn, very eager to please. He is about 30 pounds and good with cats. He was a stray who landed in a NY shelter that reached out to GHF for help. ut 35 pounds and good with cats.

BINDI: A very petite 1 1/2 year old BC/Aussie mix, Bindi is a live wire, having a blast running around so happy to be out of the shelter. She is one sweet, good natured girl who clearly would love the action of a canine pal as well as a human who adores her. Bindi is a tiny little thing, about 30 pounds but more terrier size so she is fast, fast, fast! She loves her toys and will play non-stop if she can. She also loves to race around with the young BC’s here, making up all kinds of games. She’s really adorable! She’ll do best with someone used to little dogs who love to be in your lap. She is good with cats. Bindi was a stray in PA.

             Paired at the Farm, OTIS and BINDI became fast friends, hilarious to watch and now, they are friends forever! They are living in Nj with guardians who wanted a pair to add to their lives. They came to overnight at GHF and once they spent some time with these two, they knew the fit was just right for them. Clearly, Otis and Bindi agreed and will now enjoy tons of canine activities, even trying agility! They have access to miles of trails close to home and will join their FurDad, pretty much 24/7 exploring the great outdoors plus having fun with plenty of mental stimulation. We’re just thrilled for all involved!

OTIS: A 7 month old Border Collie, Otis is a doll, super sweet and loving. He really adores people and is happy to befriend everyone. He also loves his toys and enjoys a good keep-away game once he has his favorite squeaky! Otis is very responsive to whatever is asked of him and bonds easily. He is really loving other Border Collies at the Connor House, learning how to race, chase and play herding games. He is a very easy going, good natured pup and will blossoms with positive guidance. Otis is good with cats and about 30 pounds. He was relinquished to GHF when a separation occurred leaving him home alone 10 hours a day. He clearly needs a more engaged situation and we are glad his NJ guardian entrusted him to us. He was very adored.

Rodie Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - other bc friend(s) required
dog savvy cats


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.

Special thanks to Joy Moll for fostering Rodie.

                      Miss MIA found guardians who love the breed and enjoy helping a dog blossom, exactly what Mia needs! She loved them, with easy cuddling on the couch and felt comfortable with her new canine pal, too. She’ll have lots of fun hiking nearby parks and enjoying time with both her FurMom and FurDad who work a lot from home, which is just great for her since she is a big time people girl! She lives in Virginia.

MIA: An 8 month Border Collie, Mia is super sweet, attentive and loves attention. She is a very good natured, friendly girl and blossoming at GHF. A bit soft at times, positive reassurance brings her right out into more confidence. Quite the cuddler, she will really be shaped by someone who is sensitive with a positive approach to her growth. With other Border Collies, she is quite the herder, super fast and a racing, chasing, herding dynamo. Seeing her unfold has been a delight! She would love a BC buddy and someone who is BC savvy. Mia is about 35 pounds and good with cats.

Chaz Summary:
bc friend(s) preferred


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

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, a really innocent soul. He is amazing considering he was part of a confiscation situation where he was left to basically fend for himself, with lots of other dogs. Fortunately, his temperament is good so he ‘goes with the flow’ and clearly loves being with other Border Collies. He loves to play so we want to give him a BC buddy since that’s what he is comfortable with and makes him happiest. Chaz has not yet lived a fully normal home life so we’re giving him a chance to catch up for experiences he missed. We’ll update his bio after the hiatus. He is about 30 pounds and not yet tested on cats. A NY shelter asked for assistance and we were very very glad to help.

Jade Summary:
other bc friends required - male
 - sport potential
 - bc savvy guardian required


Special thanks to Debbie Lind, Linda Wood & Katherine Schule who made it possible for Jade to get to the Farm.

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

ade LOVES the water!

             Sweet RUBIE landed with two BC buddies who will be big brothers to her, showing her the ropes as she instigates big fun for them, too. The trio was a fabulous match, spending time on the trails at GHF with her new guardians who were vacationing here. They had been patiently waiting for the right fit for their pack and just fell in love with her! So off she goes to NY for a BC life that suits her perfectly!

RUBIE: A 10 month old Border Collie, Rubie is a lovely girl with a gentle nature who loves attention. Affectionate and sweet with everyone, she is super friendly and has an easy going nature. She is starting to sharpen her focus now being around other Border Collies and we’re seeing more of who she will become. She loves toys and playing and other games with herding dogs so we’d like her to have a BC buddy or two even. Rubie is not overly intense like some BC’s but she will need activities to mentally stimulate her which is one reason she loves being around the other BC’s at GHF. She is about 45 pounds and good with cats. She was a stray in New Hampshire.

             HOPE found exactly the right people and the right place for her and we are overjoyed! This little girl met her new guardians and quickly realized they were kind, patient and understanding of how she needed to get to know them, never rushing her. With treats and toys and lots of time, they fell in love with her spirit and joy and courage and couldn’t imagine life without her! So, little Hope is living in Massachusetts on lots of acres for hiking, playing and being loved!!

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.

Peyton Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - adult only home


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.

MAEVE and MICK need angels -   click here to learn more
Maeve & Mick Summary:
 - fenced yard required



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

MAEVE & MICK: Two year old Border Collies, Maeve & Mick are clearly pals, easily hanging together and sharing toys as well as racing around, curious about what each other is doing. They are both very, very friendly though Mick seems to lead the way for Maeve who is extremely petite and a bit shy. They’ve just arrived as the hiatus begins so we’ll update their bios once they have more time at GHF. Both seems like fabulous Border Collies who could adjust easily - they are surely enjoying their time at the Farm already. 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 have been cat tested yet. Maeve is about 25 pounds. Mick about 40. As is often the case, we have no idea why such extremely nice dogs could be strays!

PIKE needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Pike Summary:
 - solo dog
 - fenced yard required
 - NO cats
 - Adult home


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

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.

Tanner Summary:

Tanner's Angels
Stacey, the Shollie, and GHF alum Merlin
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.

Special thanks to Jane Locacio, Katherine Schule, Erica Snyder & Ellen Simcik  who transported him 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
-Elliott & Reed 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!

         PRINN, aka Princess, landed a “royal" life with a family who felt she was exactly the wonderful girl to add to their family! They understood her sensitive nature as well as her fun side and felt they could absolutely love her and chuckle at that very picky Princess side, too! Former GHF adopters, they happily returned to adopt again, many, many years later cause they wanted another beloved canine pal to join them. We are so happy for this girl to find a loving family again. She now lives in CT.

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.

HALEY needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Haley Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - solo dog
 - more rural home setting
 - NO cats


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

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

     Sweet, wonderful OZZY found a new life where his guardians will be with him 24/7 taking long country walks as well as playing in the yard. Plus, he’ll have a home on the lake in Maine! Since Ozzy likes to swim, we know this boy will be a happy character enjoying all the attention and all the action! He’ll even get to try paddling around on a kayak! We are so happy for Ozzy to find a forever home where he can be loved for his great heart and mind, no longer bounced from person to person…this is Ozzy’s fifth move in such a short time, all through no fault of his own and through it all, still a sweetheart.

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, extremely gentle with people and even tentative at first til he gets to know you. Then, Ozzy is a love bug, totally cuddling and bonds fast. 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 so can easily be a solo dog, content with his person. 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.

KELLI needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Kelli Summary:
 - solo dog
 - fenced yard required
 - dog savvy cats


Special thanks to Peg Fuller for transporting Kelli to GHF.
KELLI: A 3 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Kelli is amazing. She is focused, brilliant and bonds fast to someone who understands her. She is a crazy frisbee girl and loves her toys for non-stop play. She really has to be stopped cause like many high-drive BC’s, she’ll play til she is wiped out. Kelli is very sweet, attentive and responds to whatever you ask of her, even total strangers calling her name will make her turn to go to wherever the call came from. She would be a great hiking partner however will guard her toys from other dogs so needs to be a solo dog and have a fenced yard so other dogs are not wandering into her play space. Or, she needs a rural area where guardians know she will hike without toys and at no risk of arguments. She is fine meeting dogs until the toys come out. Kelli is a remarkable, well-loved girl given up due to dog issues with the sheltie in the house. Kelli is about 40 pounds and is good with dog savvy cats. She was relinquished to GHF from a NJ guardian. Ironically, Kelli’s mother is Shawnee, now in rescue at GHF.

Sage and Lil Summary:
 - adopted together
 - fenced yard required


Sage & Lil's Angels
Pete & Renate Goodloe, Doc & Rosie

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 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. 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.

ANA needs an angel -   click here to learn more
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: 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.

 Sweet MAGGIE waited a long time to find just the right person who would understand her sensitivities and provide a loving, calm life for her. Her new FurDad is the real Dad of one of our adopters who had been hoping for a friend for him. He wanted a peaceful, sweet dog to be with him 24/7 and his daughter felt GHF could find just the right fit, which we did! Maggie has been in rescue almost a year as we’ve waited for exactly the life she will now have - a constant companionship; a deck to watch the great outdoors and a yard for some squirrel chasing and place to bury her bone! For Maggie, life is now very very good!!!! She lives in NJ.

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.

          Wonderful JOJO found exactly the right guardians who not only love her incredibly sweet nature, they just chuckled when she did her happy dance seeing a bone she wanted! She charmed them soon as they met her and then with an overnight, both got to see what a happy, joyful girl she truly is! JoJo will be her new FurDad’s walking partner, going miles each day and she’ll enjoy a country life in upstate NY, living right on a lake..we know she’ll love this life cause she loved the trails and pond here at GHF and now has her own paradise!! Two loving guardians 24/7 and a country life - that suits her perfectly!

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 extremely friendly with everyone she meets- no one is a stranger to this girl! JoJo is so exuberant and absolutely loves checking out the great outdoors, sniffing every corner and racing around happily. She is super fast and would love a yard to call her own with someone who adores her! She’s an easy going girl inside, loving to cuddle and sit by your side and then outside, happy to head off on her own to check everything out. JoJo was a beloved family member til her NY guardian became very ill. 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 but this time she needs a fenced yard for her happiness instead of being tied out. She is about 50 pounds.



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
 - 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.

        Little Miss DAISY found someone who would adore all that charm that is this very much this special girl! She was so wanting a friend again, just like Daisy so when they met…it was tears! Daisy’s new FurMom just knew when she saw her story on the site that they were meant to be together! We are so very, very happy for Daisy to find someone who would not only adore her but truly appreciate just how special this little survivor is…no more chained to a dog house for this girl! Love, Love, Love!! And, big time joy!!!!! Daisy now lives in Massachusetts with a yard to call her own and lots of walks all through the country which Daisy will love!

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.

Aaron Summary:
- bc friend or solo dog
 - NO cats


Aaron's Angels
-Steven Kapter & Maureen Jameson

AARON: A 9 year old Border Collie, Aaron is all BC through and through…focused intensity for ball play and always looking for something to do! He is a lively, high drive boy who would love someone who is as much fun as he is…we can just imagine what he was like at age one...he is quite a player now! Aaron is also a sweetheart, super friendly and outgoing with new people, everyone is his pal. He bonds easily and clearly aims to please, super responsive to whatever is asked of him. Aaron lived with another dog until a newborn baby arrived in the house which resulted in allergies and both dogs had to be rehomed. Aaron was a beloved family member and even a dock diving superstar, quite the athlete. He is not good with cats and about 50 pounds. He could easily be a solo dog since he is so focused on a relationship with a person to call his own.

Special thanks to Dennis & Sandy Sprole & Carol Deal for transporting Aaron to GHF.

Little LOTTI came in with a big burst of joy, raced around the Farm, got over her health challenges including pulling 30 teeth! and is now living the rest of her life with our Senior Caretaker, who absolutely fell in love with her. So many seniors live with our Caretaker and blossom with her kindness and devoted attention but something about Lotti grabbed her so deeply, she just couldn’t bear to see her leave. We are so happy for them both! Lotti is recovering from her difficult dental surgery and will be back on track soon, chasing and racing and bounding through the Farm yard! A special thanks to Ellen Simcik for spotting this petite girl sitting in a PA shelter, saving her life.

LOTTI: A petite 10 year old Border Collie or BC mix, Lotti is one special, super sweet girl! She is full of personality, like a magnet with people who instantly are drawn to say hello. Outgoing and radiating joy - happiness is the word that suits this girl. She is a senior in age only, certainly happy to keep up with the younger dogs, bounding across the Farm fields. Lotti could easily join other herding dogs or even be a solo dog since she loves attention as well as activity. She is best with dog savvy cats and about 24 pounds. She was a stray in a PA shelter.

Frannie's Angels
-Michael & Wendy Stahl, Lulu & Teddy ( GHF Alum) & Cody ( In spirit)
FRANNIE: A petite 10 year old Border Collie, little Frannie is a spitfire about her toys, truly coming to life non-stop for play and loving the game with her person. She is full of spunk even with a backend that’s a bit wobbly - there's no stopping this girl from her game! She is curious and outgoing with a new setting and wants to say hello to people. Frannie just arrived at GHF so we’ll update her bio once the hiatus is over and we handle her vet needs. She is about 30 pounds and not yet tested on cats.

Special thanks to Donna Deal for helping get Frannie safely to GHF.

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!

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.

 - solo dog or friend to herd


Betsie's Angels
-Michael & Wendy Stahl, Lulu & Teddy ( GHF Alum) & Cody ( In spirit)
BETSIE: A petite 12 year old Border Collie, Betsie is quite the herder, very eager to chase and circle and catch the action of another BC with a toy. She is normally very shy but comes right to life when she has action to follow - quite adorable. Betsie has just arrived at GHF so we’ll update her bio after we spend more time with her during the hiatus and handle her vet needs fully. She is about 30 pounds and not yet tested on cats.

Special thanks to Donna Deal for helping get Betsie safely to GHF.

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!

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.

Molly Summary:
 - invisible fence trained
 - solo dog


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

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

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

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

Thank you all for the kind and generous support.

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.

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