Chase Summary:
 - other bc friend preferred


Applications are being accepted for CHASE but he will not be available until May 1st.

CHASE: A 7 month old Border Collie, Chase lives up to his name, with plenty of energy for a good game of retrieval or chase games with another BC or two…he likes the action! Chase is a handsome guy with lots of focus and brilliance, a classic package of traits that BC lovers adore. He is at the age of testing the limits to learn who he is, clearly eager to bond and learn with his person guiding the way. He is also showing some strength with other dogs so best paired with a female BC who he quickly respects. Chase is very very sweet, loves to cuddle in your lap or lay by your feet, very people oriented. He is living in the Founder’s home with their pack to learn all about the canine games that are unique to this breed. He loves to swim and is great off leash for hikes, and could easily excel in sports like agility, too since he has very good mind/body awareness and moves beautifully. Chase is about 35 pounds and good with cats. He was surrendered to GHF from NY guardians whose long hours away (10-12) were clearly not going to suit him. He had a great start in their care and is now ready for a BC savvy guardian who can fully meet his needs.

Pippa Summary:
- fenced yard (invisible fence trained)
 - canine friend preferred


PIPPA: A 1 year old Border Collie, Pippa is a gorgeous girl with lots of focus for playing with toys and other herding dogs - she loves it all! She is classic in her intelligence but not quite as intense as some young BC’s so could enjoy a companion life with hiking and lots of toy play, but most importantly, being with her person. Pippa does have some worries meeting strangers so will need a skilled guardian who can make those introductions help her confidence - being surprised by people is not easy for her. Working with toys and treats, she does beautifully and is gaining new experiences with her Fosterer. She lived in a busy home with another dog but never got the direction that a BC needs so now is showing great potential with better structure and guidance from a person who understands the breed. Pippa is about 40 pounds and good with cats. She will only be placed into an adult home with savvy guardians. A busy suburban setting would not be ideal for her.

Special thanks to dog trainer, Casey Coughlin who kindly agreed to develop Pippa’s experiences by fostering her.
She is in CT and can be seen there or at the Farm.

    Sweet TESSA won the hearts of her new guardians instantly! soon as she lept into their laps giving tons of kisses with a hello full of joy! She then went into intense chase games with her new BC pal, Shiloh, both non-stop, full speed ahead racing like long lost friends. Their energy and intelligence made for a perfect pairing and with her new guardians great sense of humor about all that intensity…these two will keep them chuckling. Tessa will have lots of activities to stimulate her mind, including a chance to try agility. Plus, tons of fun with her new herding buddy! She now lives in Maine

TESSA: A petite 1 yr old Border Collie (possibly bc mix), Tessa is all action! She is some amazing athlete, jumping straight up with excitement to say hello - she would be fun to train to jump right into your arms or play frisbee! She is high energy for sure and will need an activity to occupy her interests. She loves toys of all kinds and is very coordinated and such a delight, full of joy. Tessa is good with other dogs and loves to play so could enjoy a buddy. She is a strong female so best with a submissive male. Tessa is extremely friendly and very good natured, happy to meet anyone and everyone. This very smart and focused girl, could be a great sports candidate for someone eager to shape her energy. Tessa was given up from a NY family with young children and two other dogs, just too much for them. She is good with cats and weighs 35 pounds. She requires a fenced yard.


Daisy Summary:
 - solo dog or canine friend
 - NO cats
 - rural setting
 - fenced yard required


Daisy's Angels
-Lisa and George Williams

DAISY: A petite 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Daisy is a doll - a real sweetheart! She is very, very bright, focused and athletic - a natural for agility or any stimulating canine sport. She would also be a marvelous hiking partner since she bonds quickly and loyally. Daisy is wonderful with other dogs and could easily have a BC pal to enjoy or be a solo dog, however she really needs an outlet for her mind, body and emotions…Daisy has a ton of potential yet to be developed. She is 34 pounds and not good with cats. She was relinquished directly to the farm by a NJ guardian who adored her but realized she was more dog than he had expected since his last dog was a BC mix. He gave Daisy a great start in life which shows the minute you meet her - everyone is her new best friend!

Rudy Summary:
 - solo dog or canine friend
 - NO cats
 - rural setting
 - fenced yard required


Rudy's Angels
-Dick & Maureen Ware; GHF alums Jem and Robby
-Dave & Ellie Robitaille & GHF alum, Cody
RUDY: An 1 1/2 yr old Border Collie/Aussie, Rudy is all joyful fun, energy and enthusiasm for life! He is one happy boy with the desire to play, play, play. He loves other young herding dogs and plays endlessly, making up herding chase games that are really fun to see. He is a sweet boy who loves attention as much as he loves action. So, while you’re tossing his toys, he’s happy to have a quick cuddle, too. Rudy will be happiest with a canine pal and a guardian who is around a lot so he is not stuck inside all day. He would be a wonderful hiking partner. Eager to please and smart as can be, Rudy is a delightful young BC mix who bonds quickly and loyally. Rudy does have a strong habit of barking at novel things - sounds, people, dogs - whatever catches his attention so he will do better with less stimulation around, in a more rural setting. A savvy guardian can work on this behavior and likely improve it, but it seems to be part of his true nature. He is about 40 pounds and is not good with cats. He was originally placed as a puppy in a home where the guardian worked and he was crated more than he could handle so he returned to GHF.  He requires a fenced yard.

Lewis Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - female bc friend required


Special thanks to Jane Locacio for coordinating transport of Lewis & Bryna. Many thanks also to Karen Mansfield who brought Lewis all the way to the Farm.
Lewis' Angel
-Stacey Greenberg, GHF Alum Merlin and the Shollies
-Vivienne & Mark & Pixie – in memory of our beloved Bear
-Marcia & Jonathan Kurz

LEWIS: SPECIAL HOME REQUIRED A petite 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, little Lewis is one sweetheart, a kind soul who will blossom into a marvelous friend with trust and time. He can be very skittish meeting someone new and does best with another dog so he gets signals about everything being safe. He wants to be with a person and will gently come near, hoping for some affection, lightly jumping up in your arms for hugs once he’s comfortable. Lewis will do best with a patient person and a calm home with another herding pal cause he loves other dogs and gains confidence with them. Lewis does best with FEMALE dogs, not males so a mentor female would be perfect! Lewis is loving the freedom to race, chase and play and happy to meet new people, step by step, with a little help with treats and reassurance. He came to GHF from another rescue who pulled him from an Amish farm situation. Lewis is 30 pounds and is good with cats and requires a fenced yard. Lewis has a misformed back knee that our orthopedic vet assessed stems from an injury as a puppy. His knee will eventually cause him greater pain as he ages though now he self-limits if he is uncomfortable, sometimes picking up the back leg. He’ll need pain medication when he’s older to alleviate some of the discomfort.

Rhy Summary:
solo dog

 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - NO cats


RHY - 8 mos old.
Rhy's Angels
-Bob & Nancy Marston with GHF alum Zoe (in memory of LuLu)
-The Weiler Family, in memory of Julie

RHY: A 2 year old Border Collie mix, Rhy is a very smart, sweet boy who loves the great outdoors (we’ll have pictures soon) where he can race, and run and explore. He is a gorgeous athlete to watch as he bounds across fields in big gallops, clearly a happy, joyful dog! He also love toys of any kind and will happily play with his person or alone, having fun with all the goodies he calls his own. Rhy is an affectionate, sensitive dog when it comes to people and really blossoms with someone who adores him. Happy, go-lucky, he goes with flow once he’s settled into a new life. He doesn’t have any herding tendencies since he’s a mix but has the smarts and physical prowess normal to the Border Collie. He is about 50 pounds and not good with cats. Rhy would be happiest as the only dog since he wants a very close relationship with a person. He originally came to GHF at 8 months old, being passed on craiglist ‘free to good home’ so we scooped him up to make sure he landed well. Adopted out with a blind cattle dog, Rhy became too much for the other dog so it was best for both, that he return to GHF. He has lots of obedience commands and is eager to learn and loves people! He is best without cats and requires a fenced yard.

Special thanks to Kim Renak who helped transport RHY  back to GHF

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


Special thanks to Marybeth Powers, Krysta Barnhart and Sue Myers who made it possible for Bella to make it to GHF. and as always, thanks to Jane Locacio who coordinates all our transports


Bella's Angels
-Cheryl Shank, in memory of her GSD, Emmie.

-Pam Dennison, in memory of GHF alum, EMMA, (A-UD, UD-C, ARCHX Emma Ewe Found Me, RL3, CGC, CDX, TSW)
BELLA: SPECIAL HOME REQUIRED A very petite 2 year old Border Collie mix, Bella is a shy girl, very skittish at first but once settled into a home with her person, sweet as can be! She is really gentle and loves to play with another dog who is easy going and young. She is so small that a dog similar in size seems to suit her best. Bella loves attention from the person she trusts and very sweetly nudges you for more touching but she’s not a girl who will befriend everyone. Instead, she will retreat to try to understand what’s happening. She will only be placed in a calmer setting in an adult home to help her confidence grow. Bella was abandoned in a PA shelter when her guardian didn’t have enough time for her. The shelter experience added to her worries so we are hoping, with more time at GHF, she’ll relax and enjoy herself better. She is about 30 pounds and not good with cats. She requires a fenced yard. We did a Mars Wisdom DNA test on Bella and the results were interesting: Border Collie mixed with American Eskimo/Cattle dog mix over the last three generations of her lineage.

MICK needs an angel - click here to learn more
Mick Summary:
bc friend or solo dog
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - NO cats


Special thanks to Jane Locacio, Carolyn & Dick Dumaresq, Sue Myers, Debbie & Tony Grassi and Elana Hulsey for helping Mick get from PA to upstate NY!

MICK: A 3 year old Border Collie, Mick is a gorgeous guy and also a real thinker, sorting out what is happening around him and what he thinks about it all. He is not for first time BC guardians since Mick has a serious side and needs a strong connection with an adult in his life, a partner. He is an orderly guy who would love to join someone each day, side by side, as a companion. He enjoys toys but he would really blossom with someone who can take him along for the day in activities. He is quite affectionate and loves his belly rubs, too. Mick is fine with other dogs and could enjoy a BC pal but also do fine alone if the situation gave him a purpose. Mick will only be placed in adult home and is not good with cats. He is trained on the invisible fence though did some running along as cars passed or people walked dogs so would likely do better with a hard fence. He was relinquished to GHF when he had difficulties with the child in the house. He is about 40 pounds.

Gus Summary:
solo dog

 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - NO cats



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

Gus' Angels
-The Horburys
-Michael Opalinski & Tux, in memory of GHF alum Zach
GUS: A 4 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 him 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. He requires a fenced yard

DAN & TILLY need angels - click here to learn more
Dan & Tilly Summary:
  - fenced yard required
  - adopted together
  - NO cats


Tilly's Angels
-Cheryl Fortier & Rick Horan

DAN & TILLY, a 5-year old brother/sister duo, are adorable, outgoing and really settling into GHF well. Dan, the tri-color faced boy is so curious and eager to check out every inch of the place, racing and exploring with lots of energy. Tilly, the classic b/w girl, is a thinker, taking her time to see what she feels about this new situation, clearly more sensitive and reserved. Together, they are really precious, funny and loving. They both love toys and have worked out a balanced relationship together, even eating at the same time without any competition. We’d like to keep them together since they clearly are very bonded. They are both friendly with people and affectionate, just a bit different in their approach to new situations. Dan & Tilly found themselves in a PA shelter for a month until GHF discovered they were there and canvassed to have them released to rescue. A huge thanks to Sue Myers who made it possible for them to make it to us. Neither are good with cats and about 50 pounds, knocking off some weight being more active. They had lived with an elderly person who went into a nursing home, landing them in a shelter. As they adjust more to the fun of GHF, they are more and more joyful and active. They came from a PA breeder as pups, living in one home until now.

QUINN needs an angel - click here to learn more
Quinn Summary:
 - solo dog or bc friend
 - fenced yard NOT required
 - rural setting required


Special thanks to Donna Deal for making sure Quinn landed at GHF

QUINN: A 5 1/2 year old Border Collie, Quinn is a focused, fast boy with lots of intensity when it’s time to work/play! His ‘eye’ is something else when he’s waiting for that ball toss, not one little flick away from that object he’s ready to catch! He is a super sweet, fun, playful guy who settles nicely inside for cuddles and attention though it’s obvious he would love tons more time with toys. He’s also crazy for the ‘ball within a ball’ (the blue one) we have at GHF and will endlessly entertain himself if it’s anywhere nearby. Quinn is full of personality and very typical in his energy for anyone used to this breed. He loves to go for long walks and stays close-by, not one to head off too far from his person. He has been around horses and chickens and done fine with both. Quinn is fine with most other dogs, having lived with 3 large ones, though we suspect he’s just as happy as a solo dog, able to do the things he wants to do! He was relinquished directly to GHF when the two toddlers, also in the small trailer home, were causing him to be agitated, clearly not a good match. He is fine with cats and about 40 pounds. Quinn lived in this situation since a puppy, bought from a ‘farm breeder’ in NY.

Murphy Summary:
 - solo dog
 - fenced yard required


Murphy's Angel
-Greg Beck
-Liz and Al Bush, GHF alum Shane and Kenai
-Andie Simon, in memory of Duke & Bo

MURPHY: A 6 year old Border Collie mix, Murphy is a super nice guy and really happy to hang with his person, especially if there could be a ball toss coming his way! Quite the ball nut, he enjoys all kinds of toys but especially a retrieval game. When you stop playing, he gives a good woof and howl to tell you he wants more!! He is a good natured, easy going dog, not as intense as a purebred though just as smart. Murphy relaxes easily inside and is joyful bounding around outside, exploring. His previous NJ guardian lost his home, leaving Murphy homeless, too. While it’s not ideal that he isn’t living the life he is used to, he is most certainly LOVING having a fenced yard for freedom. He’s been a delight to watch as he dashes out the door, head high, for a jaunt through the Farm fields. But, no matter how far he runs, he always wants to know you are right nearby, happiest with his person. Murphy is about 50 pounds, a bit overweight and is not good with cats. Murphy is very bold meeting new dogs so can overwhelm them and would do best as a solo dog.He requires a fenced yard

RILEE needs an angel - click here to learn more
Rilee Summary
 - solo dog
 - fenced yard required
 - rural setting needed


Special thanks to Kristine Hammar, Sue Myers, Debbie & Tony Grassi, Elana Hulsey and Jane Locacio for making it possible for Rilee to land at GHF.
RILEE: A petite 8 year old Border Collie, Rilee is a sweet, sensitive girl who has some worries meeting new people but once she knows you, she is very loving and content. Her more shy nature means Rilee will need a calm, patient, nurturing adult home that allows her to find her way with time and very little pressure. Rilee spent long hours alone in the house since her guardian worked so she is reserved inside with more energy outside where she likes to play with stuffed toys and chases balls, of course! She has some interest in the movement of cars so will need a fenced yard that is more rural. Rilee lived in one PA home since a puppy but a recent divorce, meant Rilee needed a spot in rescue. She is about 40 pounds and good with cats. We’ll update Rilee’s pictures as she gets more comfortable -she’s taking some time to settle into the new situation.

RILEE loves riding in the car and is the perfect passenger!

Sometimes, the right dog comes into GHF just when the right people have been patiently waiting and off they go! Well, is that Border Collie this time! Her new guardians had wanted to bring in a mature dog who lost their home and provide them with a wonderful life for those years ahead so when they heard about Lil, they happily headed from Massachusetts to NY to meet her! Now, Lil will not only have their love and attention 24/7, she will get to hike on great country trails and head to the beach for some off leash wave fun, plus they live right on a lake and since this sweet girl likes to swim, we know she will love that, too!! We’re so happy she found her new life so soon! They were totally smitten as soon as they saw her run to them with kisses and cuddles…Lil votes YES, too!

LIL: An 8 1/2 year old Border Collie, Lil is lovely, just the nicest girl around and feels the same about everyone she meets! Friendly even when she’s worried on a vet visit, all Lil wants is to share her heart and be with her person, clearly a beloved companion. She also LOVES the ball, quite focused and fast and thrilled for another toss. She is very good natured and full of energy but easily understands the routine of the home and even enjoyed, hanging on the porch of her previous home, watching the world go by. Lil lived unfenced and never strayed from her home so could potentially do that again, in another rural setting like where she lived. She is about 45 pounds. We were told she chased cats outside but have yet to test her inside where a cat would be a family member. Lil lost her NY home when both guardians became ill, one with a stroke; the other with a heart attack, leaving them too weak to care for her properly. She lived there since a pup. Thankfully, they reached out to GHF and we could help this dear girl start a new journey.


SHANE needs an angel - click here to learn more
Shane Summary
 - canine friend preferred
 - fenced yard required


Special thanks to Annie Catalano and Katie Klein made sure Shane landed safely in rescue at GHF.
A 9 year old Border Collie, Shane is a sweet, good-natured guy. He’s friendly as can be and happy to be in the middle of the action at GHF, spending time on big walks and checking out the place! Shane is curious, happy and clearly enjoyed loving attention some time in his past. In his younger years, we’re told he went on car rides all the time, long walks in town and was a beloved pal. Shane found his way to GHF when his NY guardian died but his life had changed awhile ago due to that illness, leaving him alone a lot in his outdoor pen. His care languished though he had a canine pal so we’re hoping we might find a friend for him, again. Shane is starting a diet and exercise program which will be great for him! About 50 pounds, he is good with cats. We’ll update his bio soon. He was adopted as a pup from a shelter at 5 months old.

HERC & BELLE can be adopted together or separated
HERC, age 10 & white-faced BELLE, age 9, have spent a lifetime together as working Border Collies on a Ohio farm. Though they have both herded with keen focus, they really love ball time just as much and are really enjoying all the attention and activity at GHF. These two would be so happy living in a home as companions to someone - that is for sure! This great pair came to GHF when their guardians moved out of the country and a family friend reached out to GHF.

Belle Summary
 - adopted with Herc or solo dog


A HUGE thanks to Troy Boone, a GHF adopter, who drove in terrible winter weather to Ohio to bring them east to PA to meet one of our team, Darryl Novak, who also logged tough hours driving in a raging snowstorm. This lovely pair deserved our help and it had to be immediate. Thanks to Jane Locacio who made sure the route was as expedient as possible
Belle's Angels
-From Peg & Mike, Stanley, and GHF Alums Tripp, Bo & Andie

At age 9, BELLE is a spirited classic ball and toy dog, thoroughly enjoying non-stop action! She is very athletic and eager to run and play. She is smart as a whip and listens beautifully, so easy to quietly talk to and ask her to do something and then she does, truly tuned into her person. Belle is very easy to live with, good-mannered and so eager to please, quite a people dog who loves attention from anyone and everyone. Belle has been assessed by our orthopedic vet when we noticed lameness in her front leg. Turns out she has degenerative arthritis in both knees. There is no option for surgery so she will need pain medication so that she can enjoy all the activities she loves. Her active nature should not be limited since it will not make the condition worse but pain will be a factor as she ages. Belle is 45 pounds and good with cats.

HERC needs an angel - click here to learn more
Herc Summary
 - adopted with Belle or solo dog


Herc's Angels
-From Peg & Mike, Stanley, and GHF Alums Tripp, Bo & Andie

At age 10, HERC is a thinker, a sensitive boy who assesses what’s going on around him and then joins the fun. He is very good natured and eager to please, and loves to hang in his bed, being in the house with his person. Clearly Herc is enjoying home life and while he loves to explore outside and play some ball, he is not intense. Herc just loves attention, a good belly rub and life as a true companion. He is 45 pounds and good with cats.

A HUGE thanks to Troy Boone, a GHF adopter, who drove in terrible winter weather to Ohio to bring them east to PA to meet one of our team, Darryl Novak, who also logged tough hours driving in a raging snowstorm. This lovely pair deserved our help and it had to be immediate. Thanks to Jane Locacio who made sure the route was as expedient as possible.

DUNCAN & NELLIE can be adopted together or separated
DUNCAN & NELLIE, this 10 1/2 year old duo have lived together for almost their whole life. They truly have a great relationship with Nellie, the red & white purebred girl, in charge of Duncan, the black & white male mix, and he’s just fine with all that! She herds him, grabbing his back legs as he goes for his favorite ball toss and their antics are fun to watch! They are both fantastic with people and love attention. Both were the pride and join of their GHF FurMom who was devoted to them, being home full-time with MS. They handled many caretakers coming in and out, with ease.

Duncan Summary
 - adopted with Nellie or solo dog
 - fenced yard required


At 10 1/2, DUNCAN is a real character with a huge personality, ’talking’ about everything. He barks to let you know what he wants and then happily woo-woos, in appreciation. He is a very outgoing, lively boy who loves his ball games! He is also affectionate and used to being side by side with his person, bonding quickly with everyone. He’s always been a beloved pal to all who meet him. Duncan is about 50 pounds and good with cats. He was originally adopted in 2007 from GHF at a year old and then Nellie joined the home a year later. Duncan was given a shave and clip so once his hair grows back to its normal long length, we’ll update his pictures.

Special thanks to Cindy Packard and Darryl Novak who transported them to GHF on a moment’s notice of the guardian’s passing.

NELLIE needs an angel - click here to learn more
Nellie Summary
 - adopted with Duncan or solo dog


At 10 1/2, NELLIE is a classic sweetheart of a Border Collie, involved in anything and everything that goes on around her. She befriends everyone she meets with a fabulous nature to be friendly and also watchful of all the action. She is very easy going as a companion though will herd Duncan as her ‘work’ while he’s going for his balls. She does love a retrieval game herself, too! Nellie is about 50 pounds and good with cats. Nellie has some physical limitations with bi-lateral hip dysplasia and spondylosis. Her condition is painful and requires medication in order to give her comfort. While her physical situation will deteriorate, this sweet girl carries on with tons of spirited energy, stoic and happy to be active! Nellie joined Duncan in 2008, at age 1, living together until the recent death of her guardian. She had a hair clipping so we’ll update her pictures once her hair grows back to being the gorgeous rough cut she had.

Special thanks to Cindy Packard and Darryl Novak who transported them to GHF on a moment’s notice of the guardian’s passing.

Angels for Magg, Molly and Mac

-Renate & Pete Goodloe
-Norton & Sandy Sloan
-Pat and Bob Reath
MOLLY Summary:
-solo dog
 -needs a fenced yard
 - can be adopted with MAC


Special thanks to Erica Snyder who heard about them from a co-worker and helped them make it to GHF. Also, a big thanks to Sue Myers, Todd Leppert and Jane Locacio who helped make the transport possible. Without kind-hearted people willing to give up their Saturday to get them north, these three would not have landed so well.

Angels for Molly
-Deb Meyers & GHF alum, Quill,in memory of Mom who loved her GHF grand-dogs
-Gayle Marriner-Smith & GHF alum, Sweet Sir William Braveheart!

MOLLY, a 10 1/2 year old, is a classic BC, watching everything that goes on, well aware of the whole Farm. She’s the first to head to the fence line, hoping to say hello and get a look at the action. Molly is sharp as can be, brilliant! She is physically in great shape, very athletic and would love to accompany her person on hikes. Her recall is great.  Molly loves everyone she meets and is used to having Mac as her pal. Molly is about 40 pounds and good with cats.

MOLLY & MAC absolutely adore people so could easily be great companions as solo dogs. Molly can live with cats. We will consider homes who only want one or they can be adopted together, without cats since Mac is not good with cats. Neither are great with other dogs.

MAC Summary:
-solo dog
 -needs a fenced yard
 - no cats
 - can be adopted with Molly


Special thanks to Erica Snyder who heard about them from a co-worker and helped them make it to GHF. Also, a big thanks to Sue Myers, Todd Leppert and Jane Locacio who helped make the transport possible. Without kind-hearted people willing to give up their Saturday to get them north, these three would not have landed so well.

Angels for Mac
-Jane & Rich Kihlstrom
-Barbara McNaughton in loving memory of Savvy
MAC, a 12 year old, is a hoot! He is full of personality and makes you laugh any time you watch him in action. A super friendly guy, he will happily follow his person anywhere or head off for a good romp with Molly. She is the leader and he’s just fine with that though he does give her a little test, egging her on for some play. But, soon as the toys are out, he just loves the squeekies and will play endlessly. Mac is very easy going. Originally bought from Hawaii, his great nature is obvious. He is not good with cats and about 50 pounds.

MOLLY & MAC absolutely adore people so could easily be great companions as solo dogs. Molly can live with cats. We will consider homes who only want one or they can be adopted together, without cats since Mac is not good with cats. Neither are great with other dogs.

Mandy Summary:

 - dog savvy cats


Mandy's Angels
-Brenda Hamm, in memory of GHF alum, Daisy Girl Charlotte
-Sandy Fazio and GHF alum, Ace
-Sarah and Nancy Baldwin, in memory of GHF alum Finn
-Annette Otis, in honor of the adoption anniversary GHF alum, Keene!
MANDY: A 12 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Mandy is a gorgeous girl who loves people more than anything at all..even the ball won’t deter her from being close by her person. She is super sweet and very loving, a devoted friend which she has been all her years til the loss of her person. Mandy is making great strides with all the change around her and truly enjoying the activity and attention of a more active life, blossoming before our eyes. She can be a very sensitive girl and needs reassurance that everything makes sense, most likely from all the change she has experienced. Mandy is a very special girl with a huge heart she wants to share again…we can clearly feel that. Mandy is also a strong female BC so best as a solo dog though in her history, did visit dog parks. At this point, dogs are the last thing she desires. Mandy is about 40 pounds and best with dog savvy cats. Mandy is VERY thunder-phobic so will need a special person to understand her reactions. She also needs a fenced yard
Special thanks to Cindy Rollins who quickly pulled Mandy out of a PA shelter where she had sadly landed. Also a big thanks to Kathy Devaney, Carol Cunningham, Sue Myers and our Transport Coordinator, Jane Locacio  who made it possible for Mandy to make it to GHF.

Harris Summary:

Special thanks to Suzy Lambert who came to volunteer at GHF and kindly gave Harris a lift here. And, of course thanks to Jane Locacio who handles all the transport organization for all the dogs.
HARRIS: A gorgeous 12 year old Border Collie, Harris is one of those old-fashioned BC’s who knows who he is, what he likes and what he wants - no confusion whatsoever - a classic brilliant boy. He is very sweet and very friendly with people and loves attention however he also has a ‘work’ ethic where he wants to explore the perimeter of the property and be sure all is in order. His pleasure comes from the outdoor world that he’s been used to all his life in Maine living on 220 acres and then most recently, 20 acres so he is not going to be happy in the suburbs. He loves to go for long walks with his person, too. He’s never been a ball dog, instead he’ll play what his previous guardian, called, ‘rock hockey’, rolling the rock around and herding it. Harris lived with his sister until his guardian’s recent illness and he is getting along well with mature female BC’s at the Farm however we’re also seeing that Harris is rather picky about his space. He just may be best as a solo dog but we’ll see more once he has more time to settle in at GHF. He will chase cats so is best with dog savvy cats. Harris is about 45 pounds and in great health, very fit and active. He was a beloved friend to his previous guardian who vacationed at GHF in 2007 and then, unexpectedly contracted cancer and had to ask for our help. Harris is a spectacular Border Collie, a true joy to get to know and we are happy to have a place for him.

ABBY: A petite 12 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Abby is FULL of personality, just a total ball nut with a lot of classic BC ‘eye’ - she is a delight to watch in action! She is also a sweet, sweet girl, a bit shy with strangers but with the toss of the ball, decides you’re just fine by her and then loves you! Abby comes to life herding the balls or other BC’s at GHF, lining up right behind the action of the pack, easily joining all the herding games. She also likes to be the center of attention so will do best as the only dog which is what she’s used to being. Abby has lived in one home since a puppy, from a NY breeder. She was involved in an active, engaged life of hikes and playing until her guardian had a family with the toddlers needing to be the priority. While Abby did fine with them, they felt it was unfair to give her so much less time and the non-stop herding of the kids created chaos in the home. Abby is fine with cats and very, very responsive to doing what is asked of her though best in an adult home. She is about 35 pounds and in great physical condition, very fit. Her beautiful long rough coat will grow back from the recent grooming.

presumably from puppy mill crating that was too small as she grew.  She also has compressed discs in one area of her spine, again likely from her history.

Teah's hips and legs are in perfect condition based on her orthopedic evaluation by Dr. Paul Bookbinder.  The only hope is to teach her to move differently now that she is no longer stuck in too tight a crate. It’s critical for her future that she relearns new body alignment.  TEAH is at Thera-Vet Acres in upstate NY, undergoing daily physical therapy treatment: underwater & land treadmills;  repetitions walking and standing 15-20 minutes 2-3 times daily, with hopes that a more appropriate gait will help her undo this damage. At the young age of 6 months, much can be done to impact her entire future.

TEAH’S PHYSICAL THERAPY is $1500 a month so she needs ANGEL support!

UPDATE March 20, 2018 - TEAH has finished her physical therapy and is strong in her movements and range of motion is improved. Now, she is running and enjoying the action of being a young BC happy to play and enjoy other dogs in her foster situation. DR. Kristin Browne from Thera-Vet is fostering her until she is a year to further observe her as she grows and also help her develop more overall confidence.

TEAH: TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE A petite 8 month old Border Collie, little Teah is a gentle, gentle soul who is trying to be brave in her new world, trusting she can enjoy other Border Collies and perhaps, just maybe, trust a human or two, too. Teah is VERY, VERY shy. What really makes her happiest is other dogs. She absolutely loves them and runs like the wind, truly thrilled to make up race and chase games. Thankfully, her physical deficit causes no pain and doesn’t stop her from having fun. It is only noticeable when walking slowly. Then, her odd backend gait is obvious. She was sold at 5 months old over the internet so she was in the crated setting way behind a normal pup size. While we can’t confirm the crate theory, both physical issues could easily come from her history. Puppy mills are notorious for housing dogs inhumanely and this internet breeder has a terrible reputation online. Teah is about 25 pounds and fine with cats..


with his first surgery completed, possibly the other to be done.

Within short order of Finn’s arrival, we noticed intermittent lameness in his front left leg. After significant rest periods with pain medication, it became apparent that the limp was still there. After consultation with Dr. Paul Bookbinder at Upstate Veterinary Surgical Center in Syracuse, FINN has undergone orthopedic surgery for bi-lateral osteocondritis(OCD) where a piece of cartilage has separated from the underlying bone and the floating piece has been removed. This is on his left front leg, first. Then after six weeks of healing, his right leg will be re-assessed to see if surgery is needed there, too. 


UPDATE: April 11, 2018: FINN is enjoying three more weeks of play, free to let loose before heading to Cornell orthopedics for an arthroscopy procedure. In his 2nd evaluation of the other front leg, a smaller piece of cartilage had lodged along his upper leg such that this less invasive procedure would work - this is great news for Finn - well at least we hope so! Our orthopedic vet, Dr. Bookbinder, felt certain the scoping would yield good results without as long a recovery which we KNOW will be great for this super intense, busy Border Collie! More to come once he’s out of surgery in early May! PLAY ON FINN!

UPDATE 3/7/18: FINN’s visit to our ortho vet, Dr. Bookbinder, led to a ‘no-surgery’ plan for another month, waiting to see what the cartilage on his right shoulder does…it has filled in where the bone has a dip but it’s hard to know if that will continue or the cartilage will break off due to the stress of an uneven bone surface, creating lameness and the surgery fix. So…Finn gets to keep having fun as we assess his growth and mother natures’ changes!!! More to come in April..for now…it’s all about play!

UPDATE 1/20/18: FINN has gone through his first shoulder surgery beautifully, even enduring six weeks of ‘lock-down’ but he’s making up for it now! Happy to be playing again, moving freely. He is still restricted from running for six more weeks but he has the freedom to play which he surely is enjoying!  We WILL be operating on his right shoulder next since he is already limping on that one, as he had been on the left.  So, Finn will be at GHF unavailable for quite awhile longer - hoping early summer he can find a new home!

FINN: TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE An 11 month old Border Collie, Finn is a gorgeous boy with tons of energy - he loves to go, go, go! .He is a major toy boy with interest in any toy he can find and with endless desire to play, even entertaining himself, racing around throwing toys in the air or making up his own games.

 He is friendly and outgoing, with lots of confidence but will only be placed with BC savvy guardians who understand the demanding needs of young dogs. Finn is NOT for first time BC adopters. Finn was crated 8 - 10 hours a day because his previous guardians had no idea what to do with all his energy except contain it which is the worst situation for young BC’s. Finn seems to be doing best as a solo dog at this time but we’ll adjust his information if that changes. He is about 40 pounds and not good with cats. Thankfully, BC lovers stepped in to get him to GHF. He requires a fenced yard. Finn is an intensely focused BC so would only do well with very dog savvy cats

Special thanks to Laurie Bowen, Sue Myers, Suzin Webb and Jane Locacio for getting Finn to the Farm


This high energy girl has a problem that we must help to improve - she has dislocation of BOTH hips, meaning the top joint of her legs are fully OUT of the sockets. The x-rays are jaw-dropping to see and then realize that this petite powerhouse is running around like a speed demon. In all the years of reviewing radiographs of hips, this is one of the top ‘omg’, ‘this can’t be’ reactions we’ve ever had…it’s gone undiagnosed all this time.

She may have suffered trauma early that was never addressed or been born this way, literally without hip sockets holding her legs in place so they have gravitated upward held by muscle mass ONLY, giving her the ability to move. Mother nature stepped in to make the most out of a very rough situation.

We caught this problem since she went lame on one back leg, indicating pain. Our ortho vet, Paul Bookbinder, feels he can surgically relieve her pain and improve the placement of that one leg, executing a Femoral Head procedure. The other leg seems to be holding in a place without causing pain.

Roxy is a non-stop high energy girl so we eager to tackle this operation to better her life.

Roxy's Angels
-Emma Clute, in memory of Shadow

ROXY: A very petite 2 year old Border Collie, little Roxy is a spitfire who thinks life is all about action, fun and a person to do things with - classic! She is very bright, very alert and very busy so not for first time BC adopters. She will do best with someone savvy who really enjoys the mental capacity she has and also understands her quirks like catching rain drops or barking at high pitched sounds, all fairly typical for high energy Border Collies. Roxy is very obedient, eager to please and wants to be involved in anything around her. Sometimes, she needs a bit of reassurance so she enjoys the company of other herding dogs and joins right in the pack. She’s fine with any dogs but clicks with other BC’s instantly. We’d like to see Roxy live with a male BC, ideally, so she has the companionship of another dog who thinks the way she does. Roxy is a major toy girl so loves to play with anything and anyone ready to go! She is about 30 pounds and good with cats.

Special thanks to Rose Lynch, Gail Mirabella & Sue Myers who helped insure that Roxy made it to GHF from southern VA.

Special thanks to Mary & Mike Beggs for opening their homes
 and hearts to foster Roxy.

meaning both her knees pop out as she runs, making her totally lame.

Once Piper arrived, we realized something was wrong as she had recurrent lameness. Once diagnosed by ortho vet, Dr. Paul Bookbinder, surgery clearly had to be done. Piper has undergone repair on the right back knee now and has 12 weeks of serious crate rest, total restriction of movement if we hope to have a success for her. Once she’s finished recovery, her left leg will be evaluated and likely need surgery, too.

PIPER’S SURGERY COSTS $2500 for her first knee so she needs ANGEL support please!

UPDATE: April 11, 2018: Piper is not loving the shutdown post surgery since she surely enjoyed the racing and chasing games the past weeks building muscle to be ready for this 2nd surgery. But, there is just no choice since both knees would dislocate. Twelve weeks of crate restriction and the sweetest girl at GHF, will be ready for a new life! Hang in there Piper!!! Lots of yummy stuffed kongs and bones ahead to keep her as happy as possible. Her first surgery gave her fabulous results on the one leg so we expect the same on this other one, too.
UPDATE March 2018:   PIPER has been really enjoying six weeks of total action! She is beside herself in happiness able to race and chase non-stop, which she is clearly doing now…she goes for her second knee surgery on April 10th but until then, we’ve been given the green light to build up muscle in the knee that had the operation - Piper agrees that’s a good plan!!!

PIPER: TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE A petite 3 year old Border Collie mix, Piper is a sweet, sweet girl, gentle as can be and also a sensitive girl who needs some TLC. She blossoms with reassurance and a calm voice, encouraging her to explore and trust that the world is fun! With a canine pal, she comes right to life, loving to make up chase games and wrestle and race, just adorable. She will be happiest with a pal who clearly gives her more confidence. Piper likes toys of any kind and will tug or retrieve a toss, following the fun of her canine buddy if they also like toys. She is also quite a cuddler once she feels secure and will lovingly hang in your lap for lots of attention. She will only be placed into a quiet home where Piper can thrive with support. She is about 30 pounds and not good with cats. She must be in a fenced yard.

Special thanks to all the people who made it possible for Piper to get to GHF: Heather Wallace, Pauline Clark, Gail Hurley, Scottie Burkhalter, Todd Leppert, Janine & Dan Choplick, Tory VanReenen & especially our transport coordinator, Jane Loacacio.

UPDATE: APRIL 2018: MARCO has undergone his first injection for heartworm treatment and is doing very well. Xrays show the disease is not as advanced as with some dogs so he should respond beautifully during the full course of treatment. His final sequence of injections is May.

MARCO: TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE At age 4, Marco is not only one of the most gorgeous, classic Border Collies at GHF, he is one of the biggest ball nuts around, too! He lives for that toss and will endlessly play, play, play. He’s very athletic and loves to race and run and leap over the mounds of snow, happily full of joy. He is super friendly!! Marco came to GHF due to a move and while he lost the home he’s had since a pup, it turned out to be a very good thing he was relinquished. Marco is positive for heartworm which would surely have killed him, undetected. So, he’s starting the first phase of treatment now and in April, he’ll receive the first injection into his heart to kill the adult worms. Marco is also positive for Ehrlichia, a tick-borne disease that could impact his kidney function. Fortunately, both diseases have been caught in time that treatment will help him. He will be exercise restricted for the course of treatment. We are optimistic that all will go well for this wonderful boy and he’ll be available for adoption in June. He is about 50 pounds and not yet tested on cats. He came from Illinois where he lived until a year ago when his guardian moved to NY.

Special thanks to Susan Monnelly, Joy Moll & Donna Deal who helped Marco make it to GHF

-In memory of our GHF Alum Nash Boy, Jim & Diane Bolten

just arrived right before the turn of the New Year and thankfully he did because he’s got a couple rough challenges ahead - blindness AND heartworm disease -so we’re going
to tackle both and hope this boy does well. He was a stray found wandering in Virginia when other rescues reached out to GHF for help. A sweet guy with a nice nature, he is calm enough to endure treatment, thankfully. We’ll head to Cornell in a couple weeks to see what we find about his eyesight, too. If he is a candidate for cataract surgery, we’ll have to put that low on the list since he cannot be sedated at this time. Heartworm disease is VERY prevalent in the south so it’s no surprise Bolton contracted the disease from a mosquito bite.

UPDATE 1/9/18: BOLTON traveled to Cornell opthalmology today to discover the sad news that there is no possibility of cataract surgery for him. He underwent an electroretinogram, hooked up to electrodes to determine if his retinas are working and they are NOT. Most likely, he has PRA, Progressive Retinal Atrophy which is a genetic disorder where the retina degenerates slowly ultimately, leading to cataracts. The condition is not painful. Unfortunately, Border Collies are one breed who commonly get PRA. Bolton will require routine recheck exams on his eyes since he can develop inflammation inside the eye, high pressures or bleeding in his eyes. As long as his eyes appear comfortable, he will not require lifelong treatment.

Bolton was a brave soul today, though had to be carried into the appointment since the whole world is rather overwhelming, especially a huge vet facility like Cornell.

1/15/18 - We are happy to report that Bolton is finding his way in the new land of Border Collies and albeit, blind, a happy guy who enjoys a toy or two for some fun! He always trots outside with the other dogs, following right behind, even in this bitter weather, happy to be part of the crowd! Have to say though, he is pretty cozy inside, with a favorite toy!

We are so happy to have him in rescue and know he will blossom once his health is handled. Thank you everyone who supported his care…he is worth all the effort and then some!! What a gem!!

UPDATE: APRIL 2018: BOLTON has undergone the full treatment for heartworm disease and handled it all well. In May, he will be available for adoption and able to start his new life in great condition!!! The disease was considered ‘moderate’ from a treatment perspective so he has done as expected - great!! Bolton was so happy to get a nice, new toy from GHF adopters Sue & Bob Maheu today - he’s thrilled!

COCO needs several angels - click here to learn more

Special thanks to Debbie Linda for evaluating Coco for us so we could help get her into rescue.
COCO: An 8 year old Border Collie, TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE  Coco is a lovely, sweet, outgoing girl who loves to say hello to everyone she meets, easily happy with strangers as well as her people. She’s lived all over the U.S., when her military family traveled, off she went with them. Originally adopted from a trip in Japan, she joined them as a pup and now finds herself needing a new start cause there are toddlers in the house and a baby on the way. Coco has handled the move to GHF pretty well, as long as someone is connected to her, she is happy. She is easy going, smart and observant but not overly intense like many BC’s. She lived with a small dog most her life and does well with other dogs but doesn’t like being overwhelmed. Coco is quite the cuddler, eager for some belly rubs and a good walk about outside to explore the countryside. She came to GHF from her NY home and could love being a beloved companion again where she is center stage. She does have seizures in her history though no need for medication. We are investigating her health a bit more deeply at Cornell and will update her bio once done. Coco is good with cats and should be about 45 pounds but carrying some extra weight.

HENRY HAS SEVERE BI-LATERAL HIP DYSPLASIA,  making movement extremely painful.

This stoic, very good-natured boy has been suffering in pain for some time but now, with an FHO surgery, he should finally have relief. The surgeon said Henry’s case is one of the worst he’s seen, where arthritis has taken over the hip joint giving him no flexibility without extreme discomfort. His “Unspeakably bad hips” will be tackled one leg at a time, with hopes that improving one leg will make Henry’s mobility infinitely better. The second leg will be reviewed once his recovery results are clear. Without surgery, Henry will face a very sedate life, unable to be the active Border Collie he wants to be or worse yet, an early euthanasia due to his quality of life with such a high level of pain.

HENRY’S SURGERY IS $2500 so we need angel support please!

UPDATE: April 2018: Henry gets three walks a day, now tackling hills up and down to strengthen his back leg.
UPDATE: April 11, 2018: HENRY is having fun with some freedom now! Two months from his hip surgery, he gets to go on lots of leash walks, getting challenged to build muscle by walking up and down hills. And, he gets to play some games with his pal, Dee, though still not full running for another 3 weeks or so. We’re glad he’s got a great attitude about life and is a ‘go with the flow’ kinda guy! Good job Henry! We’re rooting for you…once he has strong muscle development, he’ll be scheduled for hip surgery on the other leg. He’s been the perfect patient throughout it all and we know the results will be well worth it!
HENRY had his first surgery 2/13/18 so post-op recovery is underway. Henry’s facing the hard challenge of shifting one painful leg for the other, like he’s done for so many years but now, it’s a bit more painful so we keep telling this sweet guy that it’s going to be much better soon!!! .Of course, lots of stuffed peanut butter kongs and bones are helping!
Henry had a ‘massive’ thickening of the joint capsule with very severe degenerative arthritis so his surgery was extremely difficult. In six weeks, the end of March, we hope to see a great improvement in his comfort and mobility. He’ll get some time to have some fun running and then we return to handle his left leg which is still very painful.

He’s a trooper! We so appreciate the kind donations to help us make this possible for him.

HENRY, age 9 and DEE, age 7, TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE have made a return to GHF, sadly due to a very unexpected death that threw their guardians into a new situation where less time was available for this lovely pair. Heartbroken to bring them back, it was the selfless thing to do, for the sake of the dogs who were stuck at home 10-12 hours a day in a completely different situation than what was best for them. We are happy to see them again, so loved and cherished the years they were gone and now, watch them blossom into the active, free-spirited, energetic dogs we knew before and love again, today. Henry is still the big toy boy of this pair and Dee, endlessly herds him! So, as the saying goes, ‘some things never change’ but for sure, these two souls are so very bonded, they will remain together in their next journey. Henry and Dee are absolutely delightful, loving canine friends who believe every human is going to be the best person they meet, happy to toss a toy or go for a walk or car ride. Since Henry is not good with cats, they will go without cats. They are trained on the invisible fence.

GHF always stands ready to respond to special needs where GHF alums need to return and while we are saddened to see this happen, every GHF Border Collie has a safe haven here, no matter what reason or what age.
