JOY & JUNE, 9 week old siblings, have just landed at GHF and are beginning to show their personalities. We’ll have more pictures soon! They are full of beans and clearly lots of Border Collie energy. Their new toys were a big hit as they decided to focus on all the fun action around them, happy characters and they are quite the talkers, too! They are purebred Border Collies so will be placed in homes savvy with the breed, ideally with another young BC.
JOY - Adoption Pending JUNE - Adoption Pending

Ziggy Summary:
  - canine friends preferred


ZIGGY: A 2 month old Border Collie mix, Ziggy is an adorable, fun-loving, sweet character. He’s got a big personality that matches that oversized body of his! We actually don’t know what size he’ll be since many pups can look huge when young and not actually grow that much over time. But we do know that Ziggy is one smart, sweet, charmer! He loves toys, he loves dogs and he loves people…a perfect combination for a great companion. He’s being fostered in Pittsburgh and can be see there or at the Farm. Ziggy is making friends with everyone he meets, an outgoing ambassador for canine love! He was given up by someone unable to meet his needs as a pup.

Bally Summary:
  - canine friends preferred


BALLY: A 6 month old Border Collie mix, Bally is an active girl who needs activities to occupy her mentally, physically and emotionally. She’s focused and smart and eager to learn. Bally is enjoying other dog friends and really blossoming now that she’s at GHF. She loves toys and making up games with other dogs, a naturally curious girl. She is about 30 pounds and fine with cats. We’ll update her bio once we have more time with her.

Bogie Summary:
  - canine friends REQUIRED


BOGIE: A 6 month old Border Collie mix, Bogie is an adorable, happy, good natured, energetic guy! Like any young pup, he is full of steam that needs an outlet so playing with another young dog, suits him well. Bogie is a taller BC and very physical so could easily match a golden or lab for play style and can easily overwhelm some smaller dogs. He means no harm, it’s all fun, Bogie style! He is a big toy boy too, grabbing anything and everything for playtime, including pant legs or shoes, too! He’s a lively, outgoing boy and while he’s good with kids, we would prefer older teenagers or an adult home with another canine pal since he’s such a big boy. Bogie is fine with cats and weighs about 45 pounds. He found his way to GHF due to his energy needs being more than what the person who bought him, expected.

Special thanks to Donna Deal for helping get Bogie into rescue

Zane Summary:
  - canine friends REQUIRED


Zane's Angel
John Andersen: In Honor of EMA, a spectacular GHF family dog
 ZANE: A 6 month old Border Collie mix, Zane is 50% Border Collie! according to the DNA test, and part fox terrier which explains his lean look. He landed at GHF as a 2 month old pup and has grown into a handsome, wonderful boy. Zane’s favorite thing in life is other dogs - he just loves them - and loves to play endlessly. He’s up for chase games or wrestling or just hanging out and exploring outside. Easy going and good natured, Zane would be happy with someone who enjoys a smart, focused and yet independent boy since he’s got such a unique blend of breeds. He loves to learn with treats and is eager to please but he’s not a demanding, non-stop, ‘gotta do something’ dog, instead he’ll entertain himself. Or, play with his canine pals! The more, the merrier. He is about 30 pounds and not yet tested on cats. Zane was adopted into a home without other dogs and it wasn’t the best situation so he came back to GHF.

Shey Summary:
 - other canine friends preferred


Shey's Angel
In memory of my soul mate, my fur nephew Spot
SHEY: A petite 11 month old Border Collie mix, Shey is a delightful, sweet character. He is full of spunk, curiosity and confidence! He loves everyone, literally happy to say hello anytime to anyone, really adorable to watch. He is a tiny guy so quite the athlete as he leaps over dogs and goes under them or into the air, all four feet off the ground. He’s now learning frisbee to see if that suits him for a mental and physical outlet since he seems so natural for the sport. Shey also loves to swim and hike, joining pack members in his foster home for lots of exploration. He bonds very quickly so would be a great outdoor partner for someone who loves to have a dog going places with them. Shey is fine with cats. He is about 30 pounds. He came from a home situation that didn’t understand his needs so the PA shelter where he landed, contacted GHF to find him an appropriate life. He’s a great little guy, really flexible to adjust to new settings well. He could be a solo dog but absolutely loves other dogs so would be happiest with a canine buddy, too.

A big thank you to Erica Snyder for getting him safely to the Farm.

Special thanks Mike & Mary Beggs for opening their home to foster Shey.

HUNTER needs an angel -    click here to learn more
Hunter Summary:
 - other canine friends preferred
 - dog savvy cats


Special thanks to Kimberly Mockler, Raimi Jones & Midge Krisak who helped Hunter make it to the Farm.

HUNTER: A 1 year old Border Collie, Hunter is a wonderful boy, truly easy going and friendly with everyone. He clearly thinks people are swell and he also thinks dogs are GREAT! He loves to make up race and chase games with other herding dogs. Hunter is also interested in toys and could easily be shaped with a strong focus for sports. He is very smart, a real thinker and is quickly making sense of all the new changes in his life. Hunter is about 40 pounds and will chase cats so best with dog savvy cats. He was relinquished to GHF as his guardian realized she could not meet his needs properly. It’s clear Hunter was very well loved.

Ross Summary:
 - invisible fence REQUIRED
 - solo dog


Roscoe's Angel
Willie Vadnais

ROSS: A petite 1 year old Border Collie mix, Ross is loving life with toys to enjoy, people who he can charm and lots of love and attention. He is quite adorable, a real lap dog. He loves to be the center of attention so will be best as the only dog though he is great with other dogs when playing outside. He loves making up chase games with other young dogs. He has some worries meeting strangers so needs a person who can have him on leash, with treats, guiding him to relax. Roscoe lived in one home since a pup, with no real time for him, not even vetting and had no leadership when people came into the yard or house so he will bark with worry. He is doing beautifully here and learning that new people are to be trusted. He started slipping out the door into the road and the mother of a GHF adopter living nearby, happened to be the one to find him. She kindly got him into rescue where he could have a more appropriate home. Special thanks to Pat Tyrell for all her help. Ross is 28 pound and fine with cats.  He will need an invisible fence since he can clear fences easily.

Thanks t
o Donna and Carol Deal for getting Ross to the Farm.

BO needs an angel -    click here to learn more
Bo Summary:
 - invisible fenced yard REQUIRED
 - bc mix friend(s) REQUIRED
 - dog savvy cats


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

Chaser Summary:
 - canine friend
or solo dog

 - fenced yard REQUIRED


Chaser's Angels
 - in memory of Aussies Phoenix and Raven
CHASER: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie/Aussie mix, Chaser is a super athlete, one of the most graceful runners and jumpers we’ve seen. He loves to move his body and can leap easily over anything, even a fence. He’s not interested in leaving though so will do fine in a fenced yard. Chaser is super intelligent, a very interesting combination of confidence and thoughtfulness. He will only be placed with a savvy person who understands herding breeds since a big part of his satisfaction comes from the connection with a person who ‘gets' him. He is good with other dogs but a bit picky and would prefer a human connection first and foremost. He loves toys and loves attention. Since he has such a mental approach to situations, he will only go to an adult home. He is fine with cats. He is about 40 pounds, typical in size

Jersie Summary:
 - canine friend required

 - fenced yard REQUIRED


Jersie's Angels
Marilyn, Bill, Jakki, Gabe and Nicky
JERSIE: A very petite 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Jersie is a sweet, cuddly, loving girl who adores her person and also loves other dogs, truly joining multiple dogs easily for racing and chasing games! She’s adorable to watch as she happily joins in. Jersie will need another canine friend as a ‘mentor dog’ to help her when meeting strangers as she gets nervous.  She barks and needs reassurance from the person that is hers, so she can accept someone new.  She’s been learning, step by step, how to handle the real world, in a foster home and has flourished with attention, guidance and love. Jersie will need a patient savvy adopter who can continue teaching her to relax and properly enjoy meeting new people.  A simpler life with her own yard, people she knows and dog pals, would be ideal.  Jersie was chained outside by someone breeding Border Collies so had a more limited experience of meeting people. She is about 30 pounds and not yet tested on cats. She is being fostered in Pa and can be seen there or at GHF.

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

Jamie Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - canine friend(s) preferred
 - cats that will understand PLAY


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

Jamie's Angel
Andrea Rising

JAMIE: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie mix, Jamie is a funny guy with whiskers, clearly got a bit of some other breed in there that stands out! He is also a tall boy with lots of interest in running   - he bounds around with such abandon - he makes us all laugh. He has no herding tendencies but sure loves toys! Jamie is super sweet and really wants to connect with someone to call his own. Jamie needs someone who understands that he is a sensitive dog so can worry with new settings at first. He really seeks reassurance from the person that is his, looking to them for guidance. Once he feels comfortable, he is like a big puppy so happy to check things out and meet everyone.  He also absolutely loves to play with other dogs and ‘reads’ them well so gets along with many easily. He’d be happy with another canine buddy who likes to wrestle, chase and play.   He is good with cats though likes to play with them so needs a cat used to that if a cat is in the home.  He is about 50 pounds and was a stray in PA.

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
 - other bc friends and fenced yard is REQUIRED


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

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

CASSIE needs an angel -    click here to learn more
Cassie Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - other canine friends preferred


CASSIE: A 2 year old Border Collie/Aussie mix, Cassie is a sweetheart, loving life and everyone in it! She is great with other dogs, happy to hang and play though most comfortable with more submissive dogs rather than bossy ones. Cassie really loves people, cuddling and playing and hanging out, content to be wherever you are, by your side. She’s a toy girl too and likes chase games, zooming around happily like a pup. She has no herding drive or intensity like a purebred BC so would be a great family dog and companion. She is about 35 pounds and good with cats. She was given to GHF, by her NY guardian, due to a move.

GLEN needs an angel -    click here to learn more
Glen Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - other canine friends preferred
 - dog savvy cats


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

Special thanks to Liz Shaw and Naomi Johnston who helped get Glen to rescue.

Haley Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - solo dog
 - more rural home setting


Special thanks to Ellen Simcik, Joanne Cook, Tony & Debbie Grassi, Donnie Ross and Erica Snyder , who transported Haley to GHF
Haley's Angels
John Chenosky, Susan Lane, Kaylee & Norman
HALEY: A 3 year old Border Collie, Haley is a gorgeous girl with lots of energy to race and chase and play! She’s active like any BC this age and she wants something to DO so will need a BC savvy guardian who understands her needs. She loves people and bonds quickly, eager to be with her person, side by side for whatever activities can be done together. Haley is focused and smart and very observant, a delightfully confident girl. She keeps tabs on everything around, including cars so will need to live in a more rural setting, with a fenced yard where traffic is not in sight. She is a strong female so likely best as a solo dog. Not yet tested on cats, Haley is about 40 pounds. She came to GHF from a PA shelter, moved north after having puppies.

DEVAN needs an angel -    click here to learn more
Devan Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
canine friends required


DEVAN: A 3 year old Aussie, Devan is one of the most magnificent characters to land in rescue in a long time. Perhaps it’s because of his impairments…hearing and sight…sometimes that transforms a relationship between human and dog to be more intimate, instantly. THAT is exactly what Devan seems to command of everyone who meets him - it’s as if his heart is front and center, totally searching for a human heart to meet his. Everyone of us at GHF who have met him and even those at the vet and groomer, were drawn to him. Devan is a heart worker for sure, a wonderful boy who will connect on such a deep level that whomever is lucky enough to be his friend, receives the gift of unconditional love. He landed at GHF when a caring dog lover spotted him online in a very crowded city PA shelter and wrote hoping we would help. He was a stray. Aussie rescue was full so GHF stepped in and we are very glad we did! A special thanks to Kathleen Devaney, whom he has now been named after. Devan is wonderful with other dogs, fine with cats and clearly, great with people! He is about 55 pounds, completely deaf and has limited vision, neither of which stop him from being a magnificent friend.

Special thanks to Cindy Rollins, Kathleen Devaney and Jane & Dennis Wesloski for getting Devan to GHF safely.

Special thanks to GHF Caretaker, Sarah Cummings for fostering Devan.

MICKEY needs an angel -    click here to learn more
Mickey Summary:
- solo dog
 - no cats


MICKEY: A 7 year old Border Collie, Mickey is a smart, focused, ready to be by your side guy. He is great off leash and loves to hike plus he is a serious frisbee nut. He’s played a lot of frisbee in his earlier years so still loves it! Mickey is good with other dogs but is a bit herding oriented so best as a solo dog where he can be the only BC around. He loves attention, is super friendly and cuddles instantly with anyone cause everyone is a friend to Mickey. He used to have 8 acres to call his own and loved it. He was surrendered to the Farm by PA guardians due to a move. He is not good with cats.

Mickey is loving hikes and swimming on the GHF trails!

Special thanks to Deb and Harry Johnston, Cindy Tier and Sue Myers who brought Mickey to GHF

Cora Summary:
solo dog or canine friends
 - NO cats


Cora's Angels 
-Peg & Mike Fuller
-Twist, BC Rescue

CORA: A petite 8 year old Border Collie mix, Cora is the cutest thing, full of personality and spunk, making everyone chuckle. She gets so excited that her whole body wiggles as she comes over for attention. If you play a little game of moving around back and forth, she just is over-joyed with excitement!  Cora is a gem, truly delightful.  She came to GHF from a PA shelter clearly in rough shape with an awful skin condition and very very underweight.  She’s gaining now and her skin and coat look good and she’s feeling great! Cora gets along well with other dogs though seems to be a bit of a boss so likely to do best with submissive dogs.  Cora is 30 pounds and is not good with cats.

Special thanks to Ann Gardner who is fostering 
Cora in Ct so she can enjoy home life!

Rosie Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED


Thanks to Peg Fuller for safely transporting Rosie to the Farm

Rosie's Angels
Nancy Marston, Lulu & Zoe

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

Rosie decided she could help prep for the GHF Getaway camp so hopped right in the kubota to do her share!

Corky Summary:
friends or solo dog
 - hard fence yard required


Special thanks to Erica Snyder, Harry Johnston, Borden Loving and Phil Dalke, and Jeff Beck for transportation assistance

Corky's Angels
-Lina and Brad Edmonds
LuAnn Heller
-Renate Goodloe
Annette Otis
CORKY: A 11 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Corky is a love. She is very very people oriented and loves to be with her person. She also loves a great game of ball and will happily play as long as you throw! She’s a young girl in attitude and energy when outside and then wonderful inside too, curling up at your feet.  She has done agility and obedience and has her Canine Good Citizen certificate as a therapy dog. Corky is one of those exceptional Border Collies born long before the breed became popularized. She is smart, focused and understands what it means to be a close friend and partner with a person.  She used to vacation at GHF with her FurMom so we’ve known Corky for years. She lived with Pepper and Chips, all three relinquished to the Farm due to her guardian’s illness. These were beloved family members who thankfully found safe haven here.  All three are fabulous dogs. Corky is carrying some extra weight now which will come off easily. She is good with cats. Corky would be fine living as a solo dog or with other dogs. She and Pepper get along famously, too. Corky is a bit hard of hearing so needs a fenced yard. She does hear a loud whistle, barking and other sounds but the less than perfect hearing, makes unfenced properties too risky.  (Corky video)

Corky vacationing in 2008, at GHF

Asher Summary:
friends or solo dog

Special thanks to Janine and Dan Choplick for helping Asher get to the Farm.

Asher's Angels
-Gregg, Jodi, Flash, Skid, Cassie & Rave in loving memory of some very special dogs: Vince & Tasha’s Brinley & Deirdre’s Zen

-Joy Paris-Poe and Larry Poe
-Michael Reath
-Quill, GHF alum

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

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

Asher loves the new Christmas bed!

GRACE & ANNIE  need 4 angels -    click here to learn more
Grace & Annie Summary:
- adopted together or separate


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

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

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

ADDIE needs 4 angels -    click here to learn more
Addie Summary:
- friends or solo dog OK


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

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

The Farmhouse Sanctuary residents will live out their lives at the Farm. Please consider supporting their care by being an angel. 
We will need ongoing financial assistance for their needs.

Gwen Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - canine friend(s) required


GWEN: A petite 5 month old Border Collie, Gwen has a spectacular presence about her, much like we often describe as an ‘old soul’. She is a very interesting girl.  However, she’s got some things in her history causing her to worry, whether it’s meeting new people or managing dogs around her. She will need some time at GHF to heal her fears and find the puppy side of herself, free to really relax. Gwen is great with other BC’s, joining instantly in herding games and she loves toys, too. She’ll be a wonderful friend to a savvy BC person, who has at least one other mature dog for her to learn from.  Gwen is about 20 pounds and not yet tested  on cats.

PIPPA needs an angel -    click here to learn more
Pippa Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - canine friend(s) required


Pippa is loving hikes on GHF trails!

PIPPA: A 7 month old Border Collie, Pippa is a pretty girl with lots of charm and sweetness once she feels safe and knows who you are, truly a cuddler. However, she had a very isolated lifestyle so is nervous with strangers and needs time to get to know new people, with help from another confident dog in the setting as well as a person, guiding her to feel secure. She will need a very patient, skilled guardian so that this can be shaped into a positive outcome in a short amount of time. We are working with her now, step by step, to lay a foundation of successes that an adopter can continue. She loves toys and loves to play with other dogs and is a true ‘diamond in the rough’. She is not yet tested on cats and is about 35 pounds.

GYP needs an angel -    click here to learn more
Gyp Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - canine friend(s) required


GYP: An 8 month old Border Collie, Gyp is a delightful, sweet girl who is really beginning to understand she is a BC! She’s now pals with other GHF rescues and starting to intently herd in chase games. She’s also starting to retrieve and enjoy ball tosses herself. Gyp is gaining confidence quickly so could find a home with a savvy guardian who understands how to continue helping her develop. While Gyp was loved in her previous home, her mental connection to a person was not fully explored so we’re watching her now change day by day, within a very short time. Gyp has some insecurities and food guarding tendencies which we are working through and expect she will overcome. Gyp will be placed in an adult home with another BC friend. She’s a lovely, smart girl with tons of potential. She is not yet tested on cats, and is about 35 pounds. She was relinquished to GHF due to an inability to meet her needs. She is from the NY area.

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

KEIRA, A petite 2 year old Border Collie, Kiera is coming to life! This shut down shy girl hid for a long time but through the interaction with the other dogs, she is so much fun to watch. She’s curious and even has some herding instincts, absolutely loving the herding games. She has now moved to a foster home with ex-Sprakers BC Keenan and now she’s racing around with toys in her mouth!  She’s maneuvering around the house almost like normal, a bit nervous but oh so very brave so we know with more time, she’ll really transform. Keira is so gentle and incredibly sweet, starting to enjoy the affectionate touch of humans. Keira is about 30 pounds and not yet tested on cats.  She was living an awful life stuck inside a pen 24/7 covered in feces and urine, never outside part of a breeder operation.

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

She’s living at the Connor House and enjoying the interaction of other dogs. she loves to race and chase with toys, making up herding free-for-all games!  She is so tiny and yet so full of personality, just adorable. Prim is also learning about a house as she hops on the bed for cuddling or races out the door for more action!  She’s doing beautifully, step by step. Prim is about 25 pounds and not yet tested on cats.  She lived in a horrible situation with totally inappropriate care.. never touched, never outside and never with clean water or clean quarters, part of a breeding operation.  

Special thanks to Denise & Mike Margist for
opening their hearts and home to help Prim.

Benny Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - canine friends required


Benny's Angel
Luann Madison

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

Special thanks to Susan Monnelly for fostering Benny in NH.

Nya's Angels
-Shuck's Border Collies
-Creekside Cass

NYA: A petite 5 year old Border Collie, Nya is a very smart, very interesting girl who watches everything around her to figure it all out. And she does that pretty well. She absolutely loves playing with the other BC’s at GHF and is quite a little herder.  She does best with dogs who don’t mind her style of herding which is coming pretty close to their bodies but she also loves to wrestle and make up other active chase games. Nya is adorable to watch.  She will come to you for treats and engages well with a person.  Like her other Indiana siblings, she will need someone patient to keep building her confidence but Nya, by far, is the bravest of the group and has come the farthest so far.  She is about 30 pounds and not  yet tested on cats.  Nya had an awful life, confined inside amidst feces and urine without clean water or loving human contact, part of a breeder operation.

Special thanks to Sheila Maher for fostering NYA, she’s in MA

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

ANA: A petite 5 year old Border Collie, Ana is very shy. 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. She will take treats from your hand and likes to be cuddled but she can’t yet ask for that connection without a person initiating it.  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 outside and without appropriate care of any kind, part of a breeder operation.

Special thanks to Lisa Newell for fostering Ana in Vermont.

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