RHYN traveled the long trip from VA to NY like a champ, landing safely fri, 4/28. After being savagely attacked by another dog, he clearly needed a special healing place and at GHF, we had just the perfect spot. He got a peek at his ‘recovery suite’, quiet and designed just for him with round the clock staffing. However, within short order, it was clear he had another problem - lameness and severe pain in his back right leg. He was crying as he walked and laying down, instantly.

A quick race to our vet and a new discovery - Rhyn has a fractured hip socket, also caused by the canine battle.

Not great news considering his front right leg is also the most damaged, making it very hard for him to move comfortably.

Rhyn is going to require many months of help to return to normal. We have no idea if any other problems will emerge since there is so much damage: his mouth, his ears, back and legs. Good news though is the hip fracture will heal on its own without surgery though require lots of pain medication and careful support while he moves. His wounds will require continual bandage changes until infection is no longer a threat.  Whatever it takes, everyone at GHF is very committed to helping him and thank you all for your kind and generous financial support. We’re not out of the woods by any means but step by step, day by day, we are so hopeful that Rhyn will return to being the Border Collie he used to be.

Rhyn traveled with Asia, another VA dog, in extremely bad shape, too. Her bio is in the unavailable section. An important 12 hour car trip for two very wonderful dogs whose only hope was rescue!

Thank you!

Shamus Summary:
other canine friends preferred


SHAMUS: A 5 month old Border Collie mix, Shamus is a love-bug, just the cutest guy with the greatest curiosity about life! He is blossoming with everything around him - dogs, toys, outdoor hikes, swimming - he’s trying it all and gaining lots of confidence in the world. Shamus is easy going but energetic as any young herding pup will be but he settles well inside and is very eager to please. He is really enjoying having a canine pal and does best with easy going submissive dogs since the canine experience is new to him. Of course, he loves his toys, too! Shamus is fine with cats and about 25 pounds, typical in size for his age. He was surrendered to GHF since the NY guardians had a young toddler and the combination was just too hard to manage.

Special thanks to Mary & Mike Beggs for fostering Shamus.

 Little Miss LIBBY found a wonderful new life with former GHF alums (4 of them not all shown) and will have a great pack of canine pals to enjoy! Plus, her new FurMom is about to jump back into behavior work and wanted a focused pup to join her. Libby will have plenty to do at her new guardian’s doggie resort, joining visiting daycare dogs as well as being the store ambassador! We’ll get to see her a lot, too since Dog Wild is our pet supplier for all the rescue needs! Libby now lives in NY.

LIBBY: A 7 month old Border Collie mix, Libby is a smart, observant pup with a great nature, so easy going and fun. She is quite athletic and loves to run, jump and make up chase games, happy to have a canine buddy. Libby is extremely sweet and cuddly, really loving a human connection. She was relinquished to GHF from a PA guardian who felt she had too much energy for her Pomeranian.

Jac Summary:
other bc friends preferred
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - NO cats


Special thanks to Christel Devlin & Pegg Fuller for transporting him to the Farm.

JAC: A 10 month old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Jac is a great boy, really good natured. He has a ton of energy to race and chase and loves to retrieve, happily playing with anyone who will toss a ball his way. He also loves other Border Collies and would be happiest with another BC pal to make up herding games. A super friendly boy, he’s also curious, smart and good natured, quite the cuddle bug. He is not too keen on other breeds of dogs though so would do best in a more rural setting not a densely populated neighborhood with lots of dogs. It is not uncommon for herding dogs to have difficulties interacting with non-herding dogs. A PA dog lover stepped in to get him out of a bad situation where he was being tied outside, no shelter, food or water. Clearly, she did a great thing for this lucky boy who will now have the life he so deserves! He is about 35 pounds and not good with cats.

Hope Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
other bc friends preferred


Hope's Angel
-In Loving Memory of Chloe
Susan Hunt
HOPE: An 10 month old Border Collie, Hope is a sweet girl with so much love to give and very affectionate, too. She is very bright, observant and also super active. She will do best in a life with someone who understands the nature of the breed to help Hope blossom further.  A simpler life with her yard, fun toy play and some hiking would be great for Hope since she has a tendency to over-worry and react to new situations and settings.  Hope was bred to chase geese but showed little interest at this age so she was surrendered to GHF.  She is about 20 pounds and good with cats.

Lucy Summary:
other bc friends preferred
 - fenced yard REQUIRED


Special thanks to
Tom Kokoska, Deb & Harry Johnson, and Sue Myers for transporting Lucy to the Farm

Lucy's Angels
-Mike & Kathy Hoar, Tierney & GHF alum, Zach
LUCY: A petite 11 month old Border Collie, Lucy is a sweet, focused, curious girl, very classic in her energy needs! She loves to play with other dogs and toys, equally. Quite a cuddler, she’s very good natured. Lucy adjusts easily to new situations and will really blossom in the right hands, with someone understanding her emotional, mental and physical needs. We’d like to give her a BC buddy since she’s so happy that way. A very loving girl, Lucy is adorable and friendly. Lucy also has an interest in cars so needs to be in a rural setting to minimize the stimulation. She can jump a short fence easily so needs 6 feet or over ideally. She is good with cats and about 35 pounds. Lucy was relinquished to GHF directly since her guardian knew she needed more than she could give her.

Jersie Summary:
 - canine friend required

 - fenced yard REQUIRED


Jersie's Angel
-Deb Meyers, Twist, BC rescue
Mike & Kathy Hoar, Zach & Tierney

JERSIE: A very petite 2 year old Border Collie, Jersie is a sweet, cuddly, loving girl who adores her person and also loves other dogs, truly joining multiple dogs easily for racing and chasing games! She’s adorable to watch as she happily joins in. Jersie will need another canine friend as a ‘mentor dog’ to help her when meeting strangers as she gets nervous.  She barks and needs reassurance from the person that is hers, so she can accept someone new.  She’s been learning, step by step, how to handle the real world, in a foster home and has flourished with attention, guidance and love. Jersie will need a patient savvy adopter who can continue teaching her to relax and properly enjoy meeting new people.  A simpler life with her own yard, people she knows and dog pals, would be ideal.  Jersie was chained outside by someone breeding Border Collies so had a more limited experience of meeting people. She is about 30 pounds and not yet tested on cats. She is being fostered in Pa and can be seen there or at GHF.

Special thanks Cindy Tier and family for opening their home to Jersie

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


Pike's Angels
-Beat Hellstern & Ziggy

PIKE: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Pike is a serious toy boy and loves the interaction of the game plus he will entertain himself, happily tossing the toy in the air for lots of fun! He is a very smart, focused boy who is eager to please and responds easily to direction. Pike clearly focuses on a person for guidance and will bond quickly.  He is a sweet, friendly guy who would be happy as a solo dog since he connects so well with people. Pike will do best with a BC savvy guardian who understands how intelligent he is and satisfies his desire to be someone’s companion.  He is about 40 pounds and not good with cats.

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

Jagg Summary:
solo dog

 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - NO cats


A huge thanks to Sam Polsky and Jennifer Pidustwa who stepped in to help Jagg get to GHF, making sure he could have a much better life.

Jagg's Angels
-Leslie, Bill, Dani and Ari
-Tracy & Bill Blevins &
Grace & Tucker, GHF alums
JAGG: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Jagg is a sweet guy, in tune with everything around him and curious, too. He is eager to be with someone to call his own and is super affectionate.  Jagg is also quite the athlete, a real toy dog and enjoys whatever game he’s involved in! He is good natured and very friendly with everyone, a classic exuberant young BC.  He is also very good with other dogs for chasing games but we feel he’d really benefit from a close one on one relationship with a person rather than having a dog friend.  His former guardian left him alone all day outside til dark, then crated at night so Jagg is really thriving with all the human interaction. He loves people!  He is about 40 pounds and not good with cats. Jagg luckily landed at GHF when dog lovers who lived in the same building stepped in to get him into a better situation.

JAGG has happily been living in the Adoption Center with our weekly winter volunteers the past month. He loves the attention and clearly, the freedom to run. He was stuck in a postage stamp concrete yard previously and now enjoying the real freedom to be a Border Collie. A favorite scene at GHF when the rescue dogs find themselves!

Gage Summary:
bc friend preferred

 - fenced yard REQUIRED


Gage Angel
From Quill, GHF Alum and treibball champion!
GAGE: A 2 year old Border Collie, Gage is a gorgeous guy with a sweet spirit, a gentle nature. He’s pretty nervous with new people and worries about any changes but we’re sure, in the right hands, over time, he’ll find his way to more confidence. He is very soft and loves to connect with someone in a close way, just not able to do that with lots of people, yet. He comes to life with another young BC who is submissive and playful, just wonderful to watch. We’d like to give him a mentor friend to lead the way as most things in life are pretty new for him. Gage lived on a farm outside all the time so while he has perfect inside house manners and is so eager to please, he doesn’t know what is expected of him so needs a patient person to help him, step by step. Having a friend would make the transition so much easier. He doesn’t know anything about toy play yet but we’re hoping we can help him with that. Gage’s full coat makes him look bigger than he is, though he’s a 50 pound BC. He is fine with cats, in fact, afraid of them. He was living on a NY farm with an elderly couple who could not manage he or the other Bc so both came to GHF.

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

GUS  needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Gus Summary:
solo dog

 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - NO cats


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.

Julee Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - OK with dog savvy cats


Julee's Angels
-Tracey Akitt In memory of Glitch
-Mike & Kathy Hoar, Tierney, and Zach (GHF Alumni)

JULEE: A petite 2 year old Border Collie mix, Julee is quite an athlete - she is fast, agile and focused and easily comes off the ground, all four feet, clearly a good frisbee candidate! She loves toys and will happily play with anything at any moment, even tossing them for her own enjoyment. She is high energy and very eager to please, offering sits and downs and anything she can think of to earn a treat. Clearly a very smart girl, she would do well with an active, engaged home and enjoy sports like agility. Julee is absolutely delightful, fun and friendly and eager to be in the middle of everything with everyone! She is about 35 pounds and is OK with dog savvy cats.

Special thanks to our transporters Janine and Dan Choplick, Sue Myers, Scottie Burkhalter and Abby Mack, and Peter Cowan and Katherine Mario…lotsa love for Julee.

JAKE  needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Jake Summary:
canine friends or solo dog


JAKE: A 2 year old Border Collie, Jake is a nice guy with lots of ball interest, really ready to go for a toss whenever ones comes his way! He loves his toys! He is a very observant boy, really taking in everything around him before taking action. He slid into GHF well, fitting with other BC’s here probably because he went to doggie day care quite a lot in his previous home. Jake lived with an elderly woman who died and though relatives tried giving him a home, apartment living wasn’t really suitable so he was surrendered to GHF. He is good with cats and a bit overweight due to his life change but clearly active and will knock that off. Jake came from PA.

Special thanks to Scottie Burkhalter, Gail Domalakes, Keith Swift, Sue Myers, Norah & Todd Leppert who helped transport him to GHF.


KEIRA is from the Indiana confiscation (click here)
She will only be placed:
 - with a bc savvy adopter due to her skittish nature
 - in an adult ONLY home
 - other bc friends and fenced yard is REQUIRED


Keria's Angels
-Rene Bird, in memory of Shane & Lena
Marta & John Aberg, In memory of Andrew Slyter
KEIRA, A petite 2 year old Border Collie, Kiera is coming to life! This shut down shy girl hid for a long time but through the interaction with the other dogs, she is so much fun to watch 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 not yet tested on cats.  She was living an awful life stuck inside a pen 24/7 covered in feces and urine, never outside part of a breeder operation in Indiana.

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

LEA is from the Indiana confiscation (click here)
She will only be placed:
 - with a bc savvy adopter due to her skittish nature
 - in an adult ONLY home
 - fenced yard is REQUIRED


Lea's Angels
-Martha & Kevin LaCroix & GHF alum Bailie

LEA: A petite 2 year old Border Collie, Lea is gorgeous. She is so thoughtful, really taking in everything around her, trying to understand this totally new life. Lea is learning step by step that people can be good and she asking for more attention and a stronger connection with a person now. She really likes to bond with one person so we want her in a quieter home without a lot of chaos since a lot of change is too much for her. She’s fine with other dogs outside but would do best with one confident male BC as her friend. Lea likes to claim her person so doesn’t fit with a group of dogs very well. However, since she likes to play and needs a mentor dog, a balanced male BC would be ideal. She is about 30 pounds and is good with cats. Lea, like her other friends from Indiana, lived a horrible life with no appropriate care, confined in a small indoor area so she is VERY undersocialized in the real world. Lea is, however, brave and taking steps to show she wants to do more. A very patient, caring person will be the key to her next steps.

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


Haley's Angels
-Mary Jean Byrne-Maisto, Donato & Nina, GHF alums
-"Two hearts connected - Susie and Lexi"

HALEY: A 3 year old Border Collie, Haley is a gorgeous girl with lots of energy to race and chase and play! She’s active like any BC this age and she wants something to DO so will need a BC savvy guardian who understands her needs. She loves people and bonds quickly, eager to be with her person, side by side for whatever activities can be done together. Haley is focused and smart and very observant, a delightfully confident girl. She keeps tabs on everything around, including cars so will need to live in a more rural setting, with a fenced yard where traffic is not in sight. She is a strong female so likely best as a solo dog. She is not good with cats and Haley is about 40 pounds. She came to GHF from a PA shelter, moved north after having puppies.

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

Livi Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - bc friend preferred
 - NO cats


Livi's Angels
Love from Cindy, Tom, and Dustin ( GHF Alum)

LIVI: A 3 year old Border Collie, Livi is a sweet girl who does well with reassurance and time to understand everything around her. Once she bonds, she is quite a charmer, affectionate and loving. She also loves toys and comes to life to play, fully confident in all her BC intelligence and full of energy. Livi will do best with someone patient who understands the skittish nature of the breed and how to help her gain confidence. She loves to play with dogs and could benefit from a very people friendly Border Collie as her mentor. Livi needs a hard fence since she has some worries with strangers. She is not good with cats and about 40 pounds, typical in size. She lived with her sister, Ziva, but she’d do better with a male BC. Both were relinquished due to divorce.

Special thanks to Peg Fuller for transporting Livi to GHF.

MATTY  needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Matty Summary:
fenced yard required


MATTY: A 5 year old Border Collie mix, Matty (Mateo) is a good natured, curious guy who loves to check out the world and get involved in whatever is going on around him. He is confident and friendly and very outgoing, quite an endearing canine ambassador. He is very eager to please and listens to whatever is asked of him, offering behaviors in order to earn his reward. Since he’s food motivated, it would be fun to teach him more stimulating tasks. Matty has been around lots of other dogs but lived as a solo dog so likely will do best that way, again. He is curious about cats but indifferent though never lived with any. He is a tad overweight, about 50 pounds but will knock that off with more access to running. He previously lived in a 2nd floor apartment for the last two years when his PA guardians adopted him from Chile where he was living on the streets. Due to their move back to Chile, they felt it was best for him to find a home in the U.S.

Special thanks to Scottie Burkhalter, Gail Domalakes, Keith Swift, Sue Myers, Norah & Todd Leppert who helped transport him to GHF.

MOLLY  needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Molly Summary:
 - trained on invisible fence


MOLLY: A 6 year old Border Collie, Molly is all BC, focused on her ball play! She loves a good retrieval game over and over again. She also loves having her person around, a really affectionate cuddly girl. Molly is clearly eager to bond with someone to call her own. She has a friendly, outgoing nature and seems to think all the action at the Farm is fascinating, well adjusted to such a big change. 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. She and Sammi could be adopted together or separately.

Special thanks to our dedicated volunteers who helped make it possible for Molly to land at GHF: Kathy Devaney; Sue Myers; Carol Cunningham.

SAMMI  needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Sammi Summary:
 - trained on invisible fence


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. (She is rather camera shy so we’ll try for more pictures again) Sammi was surrendered to GHF along with Molly, due to the death of her PA guardian. She is not yet tested on cats and about 40 pounds. Sammi is trained on the invisible fence. She and Molly can be adopted together or separately.

Special thanks to our dedicated volunteers who helped make it possible for Molly to land at GHF: Kathy Devaney; Sue Myers; Carol Cunningham.

Maggie Summary:
 - solo dog home
- fenced yard required
 - NO cats


Maggie's Angels
Josh, Sharron, Patty & Oliver
MAGGIE: A 7 year old Border Collie, Maggie is gorgeous, just a classic, beautiful girl. She is also extremely sweet with people and eager to bond.  She wants to be right by your side and happily joins you in whatever you are doing.  She is easy going and good natured, a pleasure to be with.  Maggie also loves the ball and will play some games but isn’t over the top to do it all the time. A real cuddle-bug, she is the classic companion! 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 50 pounds, trimming up quickly with more exercise here. 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.

Skye Summary:
 - fenced yard required


Special thanks to Kim Renak and Sue Marriner who helped get Skye to GHF
Skye's Angels
-Gayle Marriner-Smith and Sweet Sir William Braveheart aka Will
-Gregg, Jodi, Skid, Cassie & Rave; In loving memory of GHF alumni Flash - truly a once in a lifetime Border Collie
SKYE: A 7 year old Border Collie, Skye is a toy girl who loves any retrieval games...soccer balls, regular balls, squeaky balls, footballs, frisbees...you name it, she will go for it. Skye is quite an athlete with lots of focus and drive to play! Skye really bonds with one person and enjoys the constant companionship of a close relationship which is what she’s used to. She isn’t super cuddly though, a bit more independent and thoughtful, typical of many female BC’s. Skye can’t be thrown into new things too quickly because she needs time to digest what’s going on around but once she feels safe and comfortable, she comes to life with her toys. She is a sweet girl who will need caring guardians who allow her to unfold at her own pace. She is good with cats and about 40 pounds. She was relinquished to the Farm due to changing family dynamics that didn’t suit Skye’s happiness.

Jojo Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - solo dog


JoJo Angels
Mary & Vic Work in memory of Jo-Jo and Molly
JOJO: A 7 year old Border Collie mix, JoJo is loving life at the Farm, free to run and explore and truly, unwind. She’s a super sweet, people oriented girl who was a beloved family member til her NY guardian became very ill. JoJo’s carrying a lot of extra weight that we’ll work to help her knock off so she can enjoy being more athletic however she is fast, fast, fast, even now. This girl loves to run!! She is also quite a love-bug and will follow you wherever you go, hoping to be your friend. JoJo is good with cats. She lived in one home since a pup and will happily return to being an important companion in someone’s life again.

Special thanks to Leslie Pileggi who stepped in to help her friend find safe haven for JoJo.

Daisy Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - NO cats
 - solo dog


Special thanks to transporters Tom Kokoska, Deb & Harry Johnson, and Sue Myers for getting Daisy safely to the Farm
Daisy's Angels
-Leela & Rudy, Karen & Clem Arrison
-Elaine Cave
-Brenda Burns
-Jeff & Kelley Hoffman

DAISY: A petite 8 year old Border Collie mix, Daisy has won all our hearts with her charming, funny nature! This little girl has a huge personality - she stands upright like a little circus dog, races around full-speed, curious about everything and barks to let us know she counts - clearly this Daisy girl has a ton of life in her and she is ready to enjoy everything around her. She is super sweet, just enjoying whatever new goodies come her way now! By far one of the most unique girls ever to come to GHF, she really needs her person to have a great sense of humor cause Daisy leaves everyone chuckling with her antics. She is about 30 pounds and is not good with cats. Thanks to a dog loving neighbor, Daisy is safe and in rescue rather than being tied out to a dog house. She has not interacted with many dogs so is best as a solo dog.


8 year old DAISY has a big job at the Farm, one she is very happy to carry out.. she is the canine office monitor!  While she’s waiting for her special person to show up and take her home, we knew she’d love being the social butterfly of the GHF office, keeping track of everyone in and out all day!

She is an adorable addition for our workers Hollie, Jay and Kory to hang with as well as every other visitor who opens that door! Only downside to Miss Daisy is her desk hopping talent since she is determined to see out all the windows!!!  Whoever adopts this wonderful girl will have a lifetime of love! She is good therapy, sharing her sweetness and hilarious antics.

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 9 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 50 pounds and with exercise at the Farm, will trim down. She is good with cats.

Rollie Summary:
adult home


Rollie's Angels 
-Shawn & Judy Colvin, Josey & Lucas and in memory of Sam
-John & Bonnie Yurga In loving memory of Rembrandt & Oscar, Forever loved & missed dearly

ROLLIE: An 11 year old Border Collie, this handsome fella is also as sweet as he is good-looking! Just a wonderful nature. He came to the Farmhouse Sanctuary due to a divorce leaving the only home he’s known but slid right into the new life with ease. Happy to hang on the couch, meet the other seniors and enjoy lots of cuddling time as well as exploring outside! Rollie loves the great outdoors, going for walks and hanging with his person, an amicable boy.  He is good with cats and weighs 40 pounds. He previously lived in NJ but was being left alone all day which was not what his guardians felt was right since he’d always been with someone

Special thanks to Peg Fuller for transporting Rollie 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!

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

Cricket Summary:
adult home

 - fenced yard REQUIRED


Cricket's Angels
Geoff & Chris Phillips & Jesse
CRICKET: A 1 year old Border Collie, Cricket is a sweet, sensitive girl who is curious and playful, just needing some time to open up with confidence. She can be super shy at first and will need a patient guardian go help her blossom. We want to give her some time at GHF before deciding on the situation that best suits her. She was relinquished to GHF from a NY guardian who breeds Border Collies but decided not to do so with Cricket. She is not yet tested with cats and about 40 pounds.

Special thanks to Donna Deal who helped get Cricket to GHF.

Rion Summary:
adult home

 - fenced yard REQUIRED


Rion's Angels
Loving memory of Dudley, Sue & Bob Strange
-Stacey Greenberg, Seelie, Gryphon & Merlin (GHF Alum)

RION: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Rion is a hoot. He loves his toys, tossing them in the air, then getting the zoomies in high speed circles as he plays a version of ‘keep-away’…he is hilarious. Rion is also a sweetheart, happy to be up in your lap and right in your face for non-stop kisses. Everything he does is a bit over the top - highly enthusiastic hellos, super fast racing games and joyful leaping around as he explores this new life he’s encountering. Rion is also exhibiting some obsessive compulsive behaviors outside where he watches the ground chasing in a repetitive pattern. This is likely from his tied out experience. Many BC’s start obsessing on the ground, flies, shadows, when they have nothing else to do. It is a very serious situation that needs continued attention to help him and he will need a very structured situation to help refocus him when outside. He’s a bit chaotic in his thinking, too since he lived with 9 kids, from 5 months old up to 20, a houseful of commotion. Tied outside with no fence, he was escaping out the door running into the nearby street and acting out by chewing everything when kept inside. Needless to say, we’re very thankful that his previous guardian relinquished him to GHF to find a more suitable situation. Rion is doing really well but will need help on the OCD behaviors. He is fine with cats and about 40 pounds.

Tayla Summary:
other canine friend preferred


Big thanks to transporters Louise and Mark Chronister, Sue Myers, Suzin Webb, and Karen Edwards who provided Tayla a great ride to the Farm

Tayla's Angels
Peg & Mike Fuller, and the furry kids
TAYLA: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie mix, we believe with Aussie or English Shep, Tayla is a lovely friendly good-natured girl. Super gorgeous and very sweet, she is enjoying the Farm with space to race and chase and play with toys. She’s spent a couple months in a PA shelter so needs a break to unwind a bit here before heading to a new life.  We’re happy to help this girl find her balance again. She was a stray in PA.  

Booker Summary:
other bc friend required
 - NO cats


Special thanks to Peg Fuller for transporting Booker to GHF.

Booker's Angels
Peg & Mike Fuller, and the furry kids
BOOKER: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Booker is a sensitive guy especially when the camera comes out!  Other times, he loves to play with other dogs, a happy go lucky, big time chaser, mixing it up easily with a group or a solo pal. He’s a toy boy, too. Booker is super sweet, friendly and good natured. Booker has issues meeting men he doesn’t know due to his history in his previous home so we will be working on this before considering him available for adoption.  He came from a NJ shelter abandoned for housetraining issues. We just found medical reasons for his issues - a urinary infection - so he’s being treated and we’ll update his bio shortly. We want to give him some time to unwind at the Farm and understand him before sending him to a new situation. He is about 40 pounds and not good with cats.

ANA is from the Indiana confiscation (click here)
He will only be placed:
 - with a bc savvy adopter due to her skittish nature
 - in an adult ONLY home
 - other bc friends and fenced yard is REQUIRED


Ana's Angel
-in memory of Edward, gone 10 long years, but forever in my heart
ANA: A petite 6 year old Border Collie, Ana is very shy but becoming more courageous as time goes in. She is intrigued by all the changes in her life but needs the greatest reassurance to bravely try anything new. She is so incredibly gentle and sweet and so wants to trust people. Ana loves to chase the other dogs and is really coming out of her shell, step by step. She is about 30 pounds and is good with cats. Ana suffered through an awful situation caged inside without access to the outside and without appropriate care of any kind, part of a breeder operation.

Special thanks to Anne Cattaneo for fostering Ana in Vermont.

ASIA  needs an angel -   click here to learn more
Asia Summary:
other bc friend preferred


ASIA: A 7 year old Border Collie mix, Asia is the sweetest, friendliest, most loving dog and one who really needs our help. She has been suffering with a chronic GI problem for quite some time and now at about 25 pounds, she is literally fur on bones. You can feel her ribs, her tailbone and hip joints so completely, that it is nauseating. Asia landed in a VA shelter a month ago, as a stray. When the shelter recently reached out to rescue, GHF was the only one who could help and ironically, the volunteer we asked to go and meet Asia, actually knew her! She lived not far with someone she had known and could verify that Asia has been battling this digestive problem for at least two years. Clearly, Asia had been abandoned in this condition, leaving her, basically, starving to death. Asia should be at least 45 pounds and is totally malnourished.

GHF is working with Cornell internal medicine to see if we can right this wrong. We have no clarity on the cause of her problem but will do everything possible to provide Asia with the appropriate care she so desperately needs and truly deserves. Amazingly, she is lively and wants to play ball but gaining no nutrition through food so is much like a ’ticking time bomb’ where organ failure is a true probability.

A special thanks to Stephanie Prochazka for helping us transport Asia, responding instantly to our request. And, to one of our caretakers, Mary Beggs, who drove the 12 hour trip to get Asia and Rhyn to GHF.

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