AN UNBELIEVABLE INSPIRATION TO SEE! 

Amidst the worst situation we have seen with horrible lack of care,
the hope for happiness is still very alive! 
GHF Rescue, PASHA, is helping NYA find her joy! 

We are all in tears watching this very shut down, terrified girl come to life. 
She follows him around and instigates play clearly showing her desire to have a real BC life now. While she’s still afraid of being handled, she is making tremendous strides with help of a BC buddy. It’s incredible to witness the first steps toward healing. 
At this stage, all of the Indiana dogs are now rooming with other rescues to help pull them toward the next level of development.

And many of the other dogs  have offered their assistance with Ana, Kiera & Prim!!
Dogs helping Dogs....  healing at the Farm!


The Farm is on hiatus for the month of October. 

If you want to adopt, pls contact us before the end of September. Otherwise, we will resume adoptions in November. Any Border Collies needing to come into rescue, will be referred to other organizations during the month of October.

We said goodbye to the sweetest senior SKIP! Just four months shy of being 17, this boy lived a joyful life! He loved being outdoors and loved playing with his ball, totally focused on having fun. His boundless spirit overcame a weak backend til the very end, willing to drag himself as far as he could just to get yet another ball toss! He slowed down significantly in his final months but never lost that spark that we’ll always know as special just to Skip…a brilliant wise boy who loved life on earth! His eyes twinkled with mischief, waiting to see what he could uncover each day….we all loved having you here, giving us almost 2 years of laughs and wisdom. Catch that ball Skip….you can easily soar.


BANNER needs an angel - click here to learn more
Banner Summary:
 - Canine friends preferred 
 -
bc savvy home
 - dog savvy cats

    




 
BANNER: A 10 month old Border Collie, this boy is hilarious - he’s all about his ball and someone who gets his brilliance and desire to play!  Banner is a super friendly, good natured young BC with tons of energy. He loves attention and is very affectionate.  He needs a BC savvy guardian who really understands how to keep this intelligent young BC happy as well as physically exercised. Once his needs are properly met, he settles beautifully. Banner is a big personality, charming everyone at GHF already.  He is about 45 pounds and best with dog savvy cats since he will chase them. He came to GHF from a PA shelter, when his needs could not be met.


***COOPER is from the Flat Creek  - Sprakers NY confiscation
He will only be placed:
 - with a bc savvy adopter 
 - other bc friends REQUIRED
 - hard fenced yard REQUIRED
 - adult only home

    




Cooper's Angel
In loving memory of Kirby, who loved coming to your Farm.

COOPER: An 11 month old Border Collie, Cooper is a gentle soul who really loves to be with his person. He is a good-natured companion BC without herding drive so loves to curl up next to someone and is happy to shadow you around the house or outside.  He is very easy going and can also be timid with anything new so does best with a confident, young BC buddy who he can follow.  When he’s with a buddy, he wrestles and chases and has a blast playing.  Cooper really needs a simple life with a dog friend to call his own and a person devoted to him.  He’s curious about the big world he’s never known and watches everything intently but will need someone patient to take him step by step through things that overwhelm him.  Like the other Sprakers dogs, he was left outside 24/7 with other dogs and little human interaction, so he’s now learning about human relationships and appropriate care. He’s a wonderful little guy who shares his heart fully, just a sweetheart. However he is very hesitant with people and skittish in new situations. Once he knows you, he does well but he will need a great deal of patience and time to adapt. He is about 40 pounds and good with cats.

Special thanks to Gigi Frostick who is fostering Cooper. 
He can be seen in PA or at the Farm.


DICKENS needs an angel - click here to learn more
Dickens Summary:
 - Canine friends preferred 
 - fenced yard REQUIRED

    


DICKENS: A 1 year old Border Collie, Dickens is aptly named - quite a character and clever as can be! Dickens is a doll, the sweetest guy and so eager to please. He doesn’t know a thing about catching a ball or what toys mean but he sure wants to be by your side, enjoying belly rubs and hugs.  He loves other Border Collies and so wants to play, too.   This very sweet, super friendly boy ran away from home over and over again, finally landing at a nice home, hanging on their porch.  The NY dog lovers called GHF for help so over we went to sort out what to do. Well, Dickens quickly followed the other BC into the car and gave us lots of licks of thanks.  En route back to GHF, the owners turned up and said ‘keep him!’ so we happily did.   We were told once he started messing in the house as a pup, he was put out in the barn with a bed.  Well, this young BC deserves a great life where he’s a beloved family member so that’s what he’ll now find! He is 40 pounds and not yet tested on cats.


WISP is from the Flat Creek  - Sprakers NY confiscation

ADOPTION PENDING


Wisp's Angel
Lara Avery

WISP: A 1 year old Border Collie, Wisp is a sweet, gentle girl who is blossoming with attention. She loves lying across people's laps, truly content to be touched. In fact, she loves it! She's discovered that she likes belly rubs and although sometimes hesitant, she really wants to connect with a person. Wisp really relies on the reassurance of a person and a dog buddy to show her the way as she encounters anything new and frightening. Unlike many of the confiscated Sprakers/Flat Creek dogs, Wisp adores men - she thinks they are just wonderful and will happily take treats and solicit attention.  Wisp is a super gentle, good natured girl who will do best in a quiet home with a canine friend and a patient guardian. She doesn’t need a big life, going all kinds of places and is really enjoying her own home and safe spots as well as the yard where she can freely explore.  She is about 35 pounds and good with dog savvy cats. Wisp is one of 46 BC's taken from the Sprakers NY breeding situation, living outside 24/7 with little or no human contact. 

Special thanks to Carol Bradford for opening her home to help Wisp.


***PIP is from the Flat Creek  - Sprakers NY confiscation
She will only be placed:
 - with a bc savvy adopter due to her skittish nature
 - in an adult ONLY home
 - fenced yard is REQUIRED
 - dog savvy cats

    




Pip's Angel
Mary Beth Boucher
PIP: A 1 1/2 year old petite Border Collie, Pip is very curious about everything around her and loves to see what’s going on.  She is a pretty independent girl but does best with the guidance of a BC savvy person who understands when Pip gets overwhelmed with all her curiosity! Sometimes meeting other dogs can make her nervous and new people too so she will need some help from the person she trusts is HER person. She has the courage to try new things but could be just as happy in a simple life without going out everywhere in lots of new situations.  Pip would love a life with her own yard and a loving person to cuddle with and enjoy.   She is a gentle girl with a huge heart, loving her belly rubs and getting attention. Pip is about 30 pounds and best with dog savvy cats.  She will need a great deal of patience and time to adapt to a new situation.  She will only be placed in an adult home, ideally with another male BC friend. She does need a hard fenced yard.



Gracey Summary:
 - solo dog 

    

Gracey's Angel
Linda at the Bedford Frame Shop

GRACEY: A 2 year old Border Collie, Gracey is a really lovable, outgoing, friendly girl, absolutely the classic brains and beauty in one dog. Her coat will be a long length once her awful clip grows out (no clue who did that). She is smart as a whip, loves toys of any kind and will retrieve endlessly. She also settles beautifully, full of affection.  She would be happy to be an only dog. She is so people oriented and bonds fast. A very athletic girl, she is eager to race, chase and play or hang with her person. Gracey is about 30 pounds and is good with dog savvy cats. She was found wandering near a creek in upstate NY in the middle of nowhere. Fortunately, one of our adopters lives nearby and contacted us to help her.


Bud Summary:
 - Canine friends preferred 
 - invisible fence REQUIRED

    



Bud's Angel
Cindra Macomber

BUD: A petite 2 year old Border Collie, Bud is a smart guy eager to figure out where to use his brainpower. He’s been living with 4 kids and learned to play a great game of catch but hasn’t yet realized his mental abilities go way beyond retrieval. He is so ready to learn new things and eager to do so, very curious about this new life he’s found himself in. Bud is a sponge, happy to follow the direction of his person and truly going to blossom in the right hands. He’s a bit confused by how to interact with the herding dogs but he’ll understand, given some time - it’s all new to him. Bud is very athletic, springing right off the ground up to your face so would love some physical challenges, too. Bud is able to monkey right over a 5 foot fence so will be placed on an invisible fence system only. He is about 23 pounds and good with cats. A sweet guy, he’s a ‘diamond in the rough’.

***COLIN is from the Flat Creek  - Sprakers NY confiscation
He will only be placed:
 - with a bc savvy adopter due to his skittish nature
 - in an adult ONLY home
 - other bc friends and fenced yard is REQUIRED

    



Colin's Angels
- the "6" from NJ

COLIN:  A 2 year old Border Collie, Colin is a very soft boy who so wants to trust this new world he’s encountering. He’s making great progress, step by step.  Colin learns best from the other dogs in his foster home, taking cues about how life works in a home so he'll need a canine friend for sure. He could easily join a multiple dog household. Colin has learned all about stairs and his yard and the fun of dog play but most importantly, he's starting to understand that humans are good. His FosterMom is working slowly,  to give him a sense that good things come from people like peanut butter stuffed kongs and nylabones and loving touch. Colin is so incredibly sweet and so wants to be brave so we know, with time, patience and the right person, plus all the help in his foster home will pay off for a new life.  He is going to do best in a calm, quiet home with loving people that understand his history and don't overwhelm him with too many expectations. He is good with cats.  Colin is about 40 pounds.  Colin came from the Sprakers NY confiscation where he and 45 other BC's were living outside 24/7 with little or no human contact. Colin will need a great deal of patience and time to adapt and will only be placed in an adult home, ideally with a young BC who is confident and happy to further pull him out and into play mode.

Special thanks to Deb Lazaro for giving Colin 
the help he needs in foster care.


***XAN is from the Flat Creek  - Sprakers NY confiscation
He will only be placed:
 - with a bc savvy adopter due to his skittish nature
 - in an adult ONLY home

Xan's Angel
Lisa Barrett
XAN: A 2 year old Border Collie, Xan is a sweet, good-natured, gentle boy. He quietly comes over for attention and happily enjoys having someone notice how special he really is!  That’s a long cry from the scared boy who first came to GHF. Xan clearly now wants a person to call his own and is ready to continue growing, enjoying human interaction. He is not a heavy herder, instead, happy to hang inside and then explore the great outdoors. Xan does well having a canine friend or even multiple dog pals and can easily follow their lead to learn more about this new life.  He will do best with a patient person in a calm setting so he can continue trusting all the new experiences. He was part of the 46 confiscated Sparkers/Flat Creek dogs so had a very hard life living outside 24/7 without human connection.  Xan is making great strides now.  He will clearly enjoy a simple life with someone who can adore him.   He is about 45 pounds and is good with cats.

Special thanks to Kim Renak for fostering Xan 
in her home to help him blossom.

Orey's Angels
Tracy & Bill Blevins, Grace and Tucker
OREY:  A 4 year old Border Collie mix, Orey is a toy boy, absolutely in love with his balls and frisbee and eager to play, as much as you’ll play! He is very good natured and wants to engage with someone who loves the game. He is a loving boy who affectionately makes friends with people. He can have some worries with someone he doesn’t know but will relax once the game is underway! Orey will need a seasoned guardian who can build his experiences meeting new people so he realizes he can trust everyone. His toy focus makes it easy to help him feel at ease plus he absolutely loves other dogs. Orey will make friends with most every dog and creates a great game of wrestling and chasing and racing, adorable to watch.  He will ONLY be placed with another canine friend or two plus someone who understands how to guide him when in new situations. Orey is very smart and very eager to learn and be involved with people. He is about 45 pounds and not good with cats. He was abandoned at a NY shelter that fortunately works with GHF.


PASHA needs an angel - click here to learn more
Pasha Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED

    



PASHA: A 5 year old Border Collie, Pasha is quite a presence, a big boy with lots of charisma. He is also a huge ball nut, absolutely ready to play anytime, anywhere. He is fast, agile and focused, quite an athlete. He is also affectionate, very eager to be with his person and enjoys whatever they want to do with him, as the best reward. Pasha is clearly observant and smart and sensitive, a very ‘plugged-in’ Border Collie. He was a beloved family member but allergies led to his relinquishment to GHF. His former family dearly loved him and it shows. Pasha is good with cats. He is about 60 pounds. Pasha lived without other dogs in his previous NJ home so could do that again but does love playing with dogs and could buddy up with another canine friend easily.

Special thanks to Leisl Bryant and Susan Monnelly for getting Merlin to his fosterer in Vermont, Lisa Barrett who understands timid dogs very well, having a GHF alum with the same traits.
Merlin's Angels
-Richard Lasky & Dash & Dot
-Phil & Sue Hunt
MERLIN: A 6 year old Border Collie, Merlin is a really interesting, sweet guy who is enjoying his new life!  He absolutely loves toys - a major ball nut - so happy to play and play.  He is an affectionate boy, too, though is most comfortable with women since that's what he is used to from his previous situation.  Merlin is a bit of a 'velcro' dog cause he sticks right by your side, really bonded to his main person.   He is good with other dogs so could have a canine buddy or be the center of attention with the right, patient, yet active person since he sure loves to play! Merlin is good with cats. He will need someone who understands that while Merlin is an adult dog, he is very innocent and puppy like in his new experiences. He can also get overwhelmed and extremely nervous so cannot be rushed so will need a great deal of patience and time to adapt. He will only be placed in an adult home with a hard fenced yard.  He is about 40 pounds. He came to GHF from a PA guardian who stopped breeding and wanted a better life for him.

Special thanks to Rosie Sutherland for opening her NJ home 
to foster Merlin and help him blossom further. 


Nim Summary:

Special thanks to Eric Smith and Nancy Crowley and Bob Collins who got Nim and Glen safely to the Farm.
Nim's Angel
Lisa Topol

NIM: A 6 year old Border Collie, Nim is a gorgeous, brilliant girl who loves to be with her person and quickly befriends anyone near to her. She loves people! She is a classic BC with focus and smarts to sort out where she is and who matters, eager to bond to a person. Nim comes from very good breeding lines and had been a dear friend to her previous guardian who died. Up until then, she went everywhere with her 24/7. Nim loves a life like this and clearly devotes herself to her person. She is very very smart and interested in the environment around her, keeping track of everything that goes on. She lived on 25 acres so is used to a more rural setting and loves it. She is not that interested in toys but is more people focused. She is very controlling with other dogs so should be a solo dog. She is good with cats. Nim is about 40 pounds. She came to GHF through the help of a friend of the previous guardian who wanted to be sure they were both safe

Scarlet & Serena summary:
 
- Great together
 - trained on invisible fence

       



Serena (photo above)
Scarlet (photo below)

Scarlet & Serena Angels
-Cathy & Steve Bouck, Mika & Cassy 
-Heidi Bilodeau

SERENA & SCARLET are 6 year old sisters with ABCA papers, who get along beautifully and have been together since pups. They are very sweet, friendly girls who come instantly to the whistle and a 'here girls!'  Both are smart, confident and curious and love playing with toys, entertaining themselves. Their room looks like a toy store! Scarlet and Serena are very very sweet and love attention and cuddling. They were originally purchased to work cows but the farm was downsized and they began having problems with the livestock so they were surrendered to GHF.  We want to place them together in a rural setting, not suburban, but they will need invisible fencing since both can clear a 6 foot fence easily. Most farm BC's are used to flying over fences to accompany their guardians all over the farm.


Robbie Summary:
 
- REQUIRES A HARD FENCED YARD
 - best as SOLO dog
 - Skilled BC home
 - NO cats

       



Robbie's Angel
-In Memory of Princess Dee Dee, the wonderful Briard 
-Janet James
-Linda Whitman & Sky

ROBBIE: A 6 year old Border Collie, Robbie is a smiler! He loves life and wants to be in the middle of the fun, wherever it is! At first, he is VERY nervous and will need a positive approach to showing him that he is safe with someone new. It's harder for Robbie to be comfortable with men than women so he will only be placed with a skilled, patient BC person. He loves to make up his own games with toys, happily entertaining himself tossing them in the air. He is funny and sweet but does have a very sensitive side and needs to gain a person's trust before he can be comfortable. He is about 45 pounds and is not good with cats. An adult home is best for him since clear direction and guidance is important. He is more nervous with men and will need a woman in the home for him to do his best, at first.   Robbie came with 6 other BC's from an Ohio rescuer who became ill and gave all the dogs to GHF.
Special thanks to Jane Locacio and Ann Gardner who dropped everything to travel to get the 7 Ohio dogs to the Farm.

Tess' Angels
-Rebecca Plantz
-in memory of Lulu

TESS: A 6 year old Border Collie, Tess is a beautiful girl, gentle, sweet and so eager to be with people. When she’s out in public, she is good when people stop by to say hello and handles visits with a tail wag!  She loves to snuggle and be near her person, happy to say hello the minute you come home and be next to you, by your side.  Her Foster Mom says, Tess is so wonderfully affectionate, gazing up at her for attention, a real sweetheart.  Tess is a wonderful girl with plenty of tail wags to go around!  She is great with other dogs and loves to play if another dog will chase and wrestle, she'll join right in.  She also enjoys toys, having her favorite to carry around.  Tess would love a life where she had a canine buddy and someone who understands her when she gets a bit worried with something new.  She was one of 46 dogs removed from a very bad situation in Sprakers, NY, left outside 24/7, with very little human contact.  Fortunately, Tess made it to safety and is clearly on the mend, truly happy to have a cozy, loving experience with people. She can be wary of some men so will need a woman leading the way for her continued healing.  She'll only be placed in an adult home with another BC and with savvy adopters who can help her continue gaining confidence. She is about 40 pounds and best with dog savvy cats.

Special thanks to Rosie Sutherland for opening her home to foster Tess

Anney's Angels
-Babs & Paul McCauley
ANNEY: A 6 year old Border Collie, Anney is all about having a person to call her own.  She loves to go for walks and rides in the car, curious about what is going on in the world. She does need someone special to help her navigate if something is overwhelming but she looks for reassurance and is content to carry on, once feeling settled. Anney is a brave girl when she explores and a more settled, easy going girl inside, content to hang out.  She’s very comfortable in the house, a super affectionate girl.  Anney is one of the 46 confiscated Sprakers/Flat Creek dogs so she has some worries, especially men, so will need a savvy person to help her continue to blossom. Anney leaps on the bed now for special time with her Foster Mom and happily stays by her side, truly enjoying a whole new way of living. Anney loves going for walks in the neighborhood as well as trails, happy to be with her person. She is good with cats and about 40 pounds. Anney will need a great deal of patience and time to adapt to a new situation. She will only be placed in an adult home.

Connell's Angels
-Lynn and Larry Adelsohn In honor of wonderful Flash
-In Memory of Emie from her friends at the Farm

CONNELL: A 6 year old Border Collie, Connell is a gentle soul with the desire to enjoy people and so wants to trust everyone. He has blossomed over the past few months, learning that life is great and humans are wonderful but he'll still need a patient, kind-hearted guardian to help his confidence grow.  Connell is a very sweet boy who  loves other Border Collies and is interested in all the herding action but is a pretty easy going fellow himself. He loves to join in the herding games but then easily settles once asked to do so. He will truly transform in the right hands and has so much potential to grow into a  true friend to the right person but he can't be rushed. Step by step, he so wants to meet people for a cuddle and attention.  He was part of the 46 dogs taken from a backyard breeder situation in Sprakers NY. Connell will only be placed with a BC savvy guardian in a relatively quiet home with a hard fenced yard. He really loves dogs so needs a BC friend. Connell is about 50 pounds and is good with cats.

Fae's Angels
-Susan Strange
-Joan Hough
FAE: A petite 6 year old Border Collie, Fae is an adorable girl, quite the charmer. Even though she is timid at first, her gentle nature is wonderful, sweetly coming to your side for attention. Once she trusts all is well, Fae happily cuddles and asks for attention. She will do best in an adult only home since she can be skittish with new people. She gains great confidence when her friend, Glenna who easily comes over to say hello to people. So, ideally, we’d like to place them together. Fae loves to explore outside checking out the great outdoors, just trotting around as if she’s found a slice of doggie heaven. She comes instantly when called and is happy to hang with you inside, joyful to be with someone and be loved. Fae is one of the 46 confiscated Sprakers/Flat Creek dogs so has a rough history of living outside 24/7 with little human attention. She is about 30 pounds and is good with cats. She will need a hard fenced yard and an adult home with patient people who want to nurture and share their hearts but not demand too much.

She is best buddies with Glenna and would be thrilled to live a life as part of this pairing though we will consider sending Fae on her own, too.



GLENNA is from the Flat Creek  - Sprakers NY confiscation
She will only be placed:
 - other bc friends or solo dog
 - in an adult ONLY home
 - fenced yard is REQUIRED


Glenna's Angels
-Kelly Welch,in memory of Cuillin
-Donald and Margaret Rose

GLENNA: A petite 10 year old Border Collie, Glenna is one gorgeous, sweet girl who loves attention! She is gentle and shy but comes up politely asking for a little recognition for being such a doll. She is enjoying the fun of being able to run, explore and be a happy Border Collie and we’re thrilled to see her blossom. She is from the tough situation in Sprakers NY where she was left outside 24/7 with little human connection. So, for Glenna, life is now grand and she is thriving. She loves hanging with anyone who will be with her, including some men that are patient and kind.  She also enjoys her buddy, Fae, pairing up to hang together and race around the Farm. She is a strong girl so does best with submissive Border Collies. We’re pretty sure that Glenna was the matriarch of the gang though clearly a sweetheart with people!  Glenna is about 30 pounds and is good with cats.

Glenna, like all mature dogs, has had diagnostic tests: thyroid, bloodwork and urinalysis and is healthy to be adopted


Simon & Jaz Summary:
 - Adopted together - a great pair
 
- REQUIRES A FENCED YARD 
 - NO cats

    


JAZ is the leader, the catalyst for motion. You throw, she chases and that's what she loves the most. Focused, smart and attentive, she's got all the traits of a classic BC. Jaz is an incredible frisbee dog, turning mid-air to catch whatever is tossed her way. She loves to play and she also loves people, a very friendly high energy girl. A very responsive girl, she knows how to have fun!  She is good with cats but since Simon isn't, they will only go into a "no cats" home


Simon and Jazz Angels
Mike & Peg Fuller

SIMON and JAZ, both 7 yr old bc's.  They are absolutely terrific with people, very eager to say hello to anyone and everyone and they are great with other dogs. They were very well socialized and befriend everyone they meet. This fabulous pair are great friends, loving life, happy to share their charm and brilliance and joy of having fun, BC style! Both athletic and playful, they need an active guardian who adores this breed. 


SIMON
 is a thinker, paying attention to everything around him to decide whether it's ball time or not. A bit sensitive, he likes some reassurance before he joins in the action. But, he LOVES his ball and makes up games with Jaz as they both are toy dogs! He's happy to have attention and also happy to entertain himself. He is not good with cats.
SIMON & JAZZ thought everyone picked the perfect toys for them - Jaz couldn't decide which one....  even though Simon spotted his instantly. This wonderful duo absolutely love to play, play, play and love anyone who will join them in the game!!!  

Our vacationing campers are walking GHF dogs and catching moments of fun with them!

CHIPPER found the perfect guardians to love him fully and provide him a stable, calm setting like he was used to..they saw his picture on the site, read about him and asked if they could come right away to meet this little guy. Used to shelties, they knew they would understand his personality very very well. He absolutely adored them. Chipper now lives in upstate NY.

CHIPPER: A petite 7 year old Border Collie mix, Chipper is a doll. He just wants to be where you are and happily tag along for whatever journey unfolds. He’s friendly and outgoing with a bit of spunk that makes you chuckle. He’s very sweet and had been a 24/7 companion to a woman who recently died. He has only lived in an adult home and has some worries meeting new people at first so will only be placed in an adult home with a fenced yard. Chipper lived with multiple cats and did beautifully with them. He is about 35 pounds and came to GHF through the help of a neighbor


All mature BC's (dogs 9 yrs and older) have undergone a geriatric screen which includes bloodwork, a thyroid panel and urinalysis. The dogs are available for adoption once those results indicate they are healthy and ready to go!

CHIP: A 10 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Chip is all about the ball and will race and chase til he drops! He loves action, a classic BC!  Chip is smart as they come and as sweet as can be and focused to work that ball!  He is great with other BC's, and just as happy to be by himself, engaged with his person though he likes to play with other BC's too. He's an adorable guy with tons of personality, smart as a whip.  Chip is friends with everyone he meets and has no worries about new situations or anything thrown his way - he rolls with it all, just like the ball! Chip will do best in a rural setting far from traffic and chaos. He is a doll to be around and really full of personality - fast to learn, eager to act and loving everyone. Chip's previous VA guardians felt it was best to find him a life that suited him better. He is about 50 pounds and is not good with cats

Special thanks to fosterer Linda Wood 
for opening her home and heart to Chip.

MAVERICK: An 11 year old Border Collie, Maverick is a character - he is a strong willed guy who likes to check out everything going on around him!  He loves exploring outside to see where the Farm dogs are going and will happily trot along to join them, all about the action.  He is very athletic and loves his squeaky ball. He’s an engaging BC with plenty of spunk, a bit like the old style BC's from working farms who know how to think and observe and use their minds non-stop, very curious and ready to be a part of everything….he's quite special. Maverick is easy going but certainly a 'young senior' so would love a life where he has 'work' to do, hanging with his person.  He is about 50 pounds. He was a stray in PA, found matted, dirty and truly a mess. He is not good with cats.

Maverick, like all mature dogs, has had diagnostic tests: thyroid, bloodwork and urinalysis and is healthy to be adopted


Special thanks to Vicki Buono who happily opened 
her home to foster Maverick.

JENNEY: A 10 year old Border Collie, Jenney is a real love, just all about being the center of attention and sharing her heart.She is smart as can be and eager to join in whatever is going on around her. Jenney can also be a bit timid at first so does well when someone is patient and not overwhelming so she trusts it’s ok to be herself. Speaking to her in a gentle voice calms any worries and she’s as sweet as can be.  She loves to take walks and check out the great outdoors, trotting along on her own or with her person.  As her Foster Mom says, Jenney is a very spunky gal with a big heart, like Eliza Doolittle from My Fair Lady.  She’s happy to have a cozy warm indoor life now, snuggling and also out sniffing around the great outdoors! Jenney was one of the 46 confiscated Sprakers/Flat Creek dogs so had a hard life living outside 24/7 without human interaction. She now clearly cherishes all that humans can give and has blossomed beautifully.  Jenney loves her puzzle toys and will take on the challenge to figure out whatever is asked of her. She is about 40 pounds and is good with cats. Jenney could live with an easy going submissive male BC or as a solo dog. Jenney will only be placed in an adult home with a hard fenced yard. She will do best with patient guardians who understand her skittish nature.

Jenney, like all mature dogs, has had diagnostic tests: thyroid, bloodwork and urinalysis and is healthy to be adopted

ACE: A 10 year old Border Collie, ACE is such a wonderful guy, with the sweetest nature! Ace loves tennis balls and really any toy you toss for him - he goes to pick up a toy before heading outside so it’s handy for that game of fetch. After a few tosses and some happy ‘woo woo’ howls, he loves to walk with you, or explore the yard on his own. Ace has a great recall! Indoors he’s very content to hang out with you, such an easy-going guy! He “aced” his heartworm treatment and is ready to enjoy a loving, happy life with someone special. Ace is 45 pounds, he is not good with cats and would do best as an only dog. He was a stray in Pennsylvania, landing in a shelter that fortunately works with GHF.

Ace, like all mature dogs, has had diagnostic tests: thyroid, bloodwork and urinalysis and is healthy to be adopted

Lacie's Angels
-Carolyn & Dick Dumaresq

LACIE An 11 year old Border Collie, Lacie is the cutest thing. She's got plenty of spunk and total confidence about everything she wants to do and willingly checks out the world as if she can handle it all! She's a classic BC. One of the reasons she's so secure in her own way of handling the world is because she did in fact work on a sheep farm, so her brilliance was put to good use. Lacie is good with other dogs and likes her ball games, too!  She found herself without a home when her guardian aged so his grandson was selling her for $50 since she was old.  Lacie lived outside all her life but is loving the Farmhouse Sanctuary, happy to be warm and cozy. She has perfect manners and such a friendly personality, it's hard to imagine anyone parting with these really wonderful girl. Fortunately, we were able to bring her into rescue at GHF. She is not good with cats.

Lacie, like all mature dogs, has had diagnostic tests: thyroid, bloodwork and urinalysis and is healthy to be adopted

NATHAN: A petite 12 year old Border Collie/sheltie, Nathan is hilarious! He is outgoing, fun and friendly and absolutely loving the space to explore at the Farm. He’s living in the Farmhouse Sanctuary with the other seniors but he’s full of spunk and clearly planning for lots of fun ahead. This totally adoptable boy makes us all chuckle and will clearly be a great friend for someone looking for an easy going yet lively pal. Nathan is very smart, very sweet and loves to join you in anything going on, happy to be by your side. He is 35 lbs and great with other dogs and cats, frankly one of the nicest little guys around. As with all seniors, we’ve handled diagnostic lab work and found him to be healthy as can be.

JJ' Angels
-John & Bonnie Yurga

JJ: A 13 year old Border Collie mix, JJ is one happy fellow, content to check out the Farm yard and hang with the other seniors. He is such a great, friendly, happy go lucky dog just one to enjoy his person and hang out! JJ is great with cats and could easily join other dogs in a multiple dog household. He’d also do fine as a solo dog accompanying his person wherever they go. JJ has a laid back personality combined with wonderful curiosity so he’s a joy to be around. He is about 50 pounds and was abandoned by his previous PA guardians, left with a dog sitter.



Special thanks to Marybeth Powers who is working with Chase at this time, in her home.

CHASE: An 8 month old Border Collie/Aussie, Chase is a smart, curious boy who needs some time in rescue to unwind and come into balance. He’ll be learning about other dogs and gaining confidence this month and then we’ll update his bio. He came to the Farm from a divorce situation. He needs a seasoned person who can help him grow into a happier dog.

QUINCEY needs angels - click here to learn more

Quincey has undergone his first heart worm treatment and is doing well. We are relieved that everything can now proceed with the final stage of returning him to good health. The parasite load is handled; the mange is gone; the lyme has been treated so now…the final phase… after his first, shot there is another in a month. We’ll update his progress as this all unfolds.

Quincey is looking fabulous, absolutely one of the most stunning Border Collies in rescue! So, we just hope that the treatment will safely bring the inside into good health to match the new gorgeous outside!

QUINCEY: A 7 year old Border Collie, Quincey is now in good hands and on his way to a much better, healthier life.  He’s lived in one home since a pup but most of the time he was chained outside or in the basement alone.  Fortunately for Quincey, his guardian realized he was sick and visited a vet who then advocated for Quincey to go to someone else. Thrilled that we could step in, the vet handled preliminary needs for Quincey and GHF stepped in to take on the rest of his care. 

Quincey has a host of problems that are all about to be solved, one by one - sarcoptic mange; lyme disease and heart worm disease and a severe load of parasites. 

To say that Quincey needs help is an understatement. We are all relieved to now have him in rescue. We’re presently tackling these diseases in the order it makes sense to help keep Quincey gain his strength.  His heartworm disease is the riskiest problem so we’ll be carefully handling that medical need when it’s best to do so. We’ll update his progress as the months unfold. 

We are always saddened to see such extreme lack of care but heartened to know that veterinarians and other dog lovers step in to share stories to get these dogs the serious help they need.


Cora Summary:

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

CORA: A petite 7 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!
