HALLIE was the last puppy from the pa group to find her place and that she did - with two of our board members who recently adopted Bradley and another Border Collie from the farm, Cassie, last year. Little Hallie had her mind set on living with them when she met them one day at our Board Meeting so she she started communicating to her new guardians, one of which is a reknown animal communicator. Through some interesting emails back and forth between animal communicators, everything became crystal clear that Hallie wanted to live and work at Spring Farm Cares, helping with the sanctuary work. She knew exactly who she wanted to be with and so, as the story goes, the rest is history. She now lives in upstate NY - her wish came true! And, she says she plans to be involved in work at Glen Highland Farm so stay tuned for more from Hallie!!

She is also showing herding instincts now, carefully stalking the tennis ball and starting to give the border collie eye to other dogs around her.

He had been living in an empty room for 10 hours a day without toys, not ideal for any dog.


MAGGIE MAY found her forever home before arriving at the Farm and even before we could get some great pictures of her! She was flown in from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and due to meet Lillie at the Philly airport, but last minute changes meant one of our Board members and web host, Cindy, would go- but at the last minute, she couldn't make it either. So we turned to a long time friend of the Farm who happily agreed to go. Unbeknownst to her, she was going to meet her new dog! Upon meeting her, it was crystal clear that there was no way she would be sending Maggie May to the Farm...it was truly a heart connection and love at first sight. So Miss Maggie May will be happily living in NJ, quite a long way from Utah! Everything happens for a reason....the miracle of the Farm through these dogs just happens over and over and over again. 

MAGGIE MAE is a 3yr old female Border Collie who is coming to the Farm from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah (we have taken a dozen border collies from them since it is hard to place them properly, arrives 2/12)  She is mild-mannered and was raised with both kids and other dogs.  Described as housetrained, leash-trained, pleasant, obedient. Very well-mannered, fine with male and female dogs, and loves handling. Best Friends had adopted her out to a home, but she was kicked by a horse and it broke her right rear leg and the folks brought her back to the shelter.   The original owner was a developmentally disabled individual who also had health issues and couldn’t care for Maggie.   


JAKE found the perfect home for all his energy and brilliance...not only will he get to do agility in his own backyard as well as at competitions, he'll have non-stop play with his new canine friends, especially his new herding buddy who raced and chased endlessly all over the paddock fields with him. What a great foursome of furry friends to keep his new loving guardians happily busy! Jake now lives in PA.

JAKE: A 6 month old Border Collie, Jake is a smart, fun, sweet boy, full of energy. He needs another young dog for play and people who understand the breed. He is ready to learn and has potential for anything that uses his mind as well as his body. Jake is a sweetheart, full of spunk, like any young Border Collie. He was surrendered to the Farm because he was too much for the older mixed breed living in the home. He came from NY. 


JESS found her forever home with as the constant companion day in and day out to her new guardian who loves the breed and was charmed by Jess's sweet, gentle nature. Jess will enjoy a wonderful life on a 65 acre working herb farm with visitors coming and gong, cats and chickens and sheep, too. She'll be the main greeter watching over all that happens - a perfect job for Jess. She now lives in Ct.

JESS: A 3 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Jess is a thoughtful sweetheart who adores being with people. She loves attention and wants to give back her affection. Jess is incredibly sweet and adores people so could be a good therapy dog candidate.  She is a very smart girl who will thrive with the patience of a person who helps build her confidence since Jess can be a bit shy in new situations. Jess is great with other dogs and cats. She is about 35 pounds. Jess was shipped directly from Scotland at 1 year old. She is part of the 25 dogs surrendered to the farm from a guardian in PA who had personal problems financially and with alcohol. (she still looks gorgeous even with mud!) 


AIDAN found his forever home with another canine friend who clearly chose him to join him and his people in a wonderful, loving life. Aidan will get to do lots of swimming, hiking and outdoor activities as well as be the constant companions to his new dog-loving adopters!! He now lives in upstate NY.



DEMIE found a wonderful home as the constant companion to her new person as well as having two furry friends for exploring and playing each day and chasing squirrels, a favorite activity plus she'll get to check out the horses at her new home, too. She happily hopped up on the couch for affection and fit in perfectly as part of the family (even though she is camera shy). Demie now lives in upstate NY where she will be adored.

DEMIE: A 7 yr old Border Collie, Demie is incredibly loving and nudges you for attention to say hello whenever she is around her preson. She loves to run and also enjoy toys, but her favorite thing is people - and getting belly rubs and giving kisses. Demie is very gentle, very very sweet and loves to cuddle and give her love to you. She is fine with other dogs, running and playing though she could also be happy as the solo dog. Demie is very smart and eager to connect to people. She is also easy going, a delight to be around. She is about 40 pounds, typical in size for the breed and is good with cats. Demi's family situation changed with a toddler in the house and another baby on the way.  Demi was relinquished from NJ. Demi is being fostered in upstate NY and can be seen at the Farm.


Marvelous Maex landed in a remarkable home that matches his unique personality perfectly...he will be living with a guardian who not only loves the breed but devotes her life to training dogs for movies and commercials. She came to visit Maex while scouting for a potential movie based on the book, A Dog Year, and ended up falli ng in love for herself! Maex will get his shot at stunts and productions of  course but most of all, he will be her beloved companion learning all kinds of tricks and having fun racing and playing on his own ten acres! Maex happily heads off, maybe for stardom, but for sure, lots of love!

MAEX: A 2 yr old old Border Collie, Maex is a high energy, playful dog who is very very happy with any challenge. He loves toys and he wants to be stimulated to use his mind, body and heart all together. He is a delightful boy who will flourish with a sport outlet. He is very athletic and also very relationship oriented, a real people dog. Maex also loves the water, happy to swim and also happy to explore outdoors. He is a real thinker so will be best suited to a border collie savvy guardian and will be placed with older children or in an adult home because he tends to be very physical in his play style. Maex is a confident male,  likes to be the center of attention in his home so will be placed as a solo dog. He has some nervousness around men so will need someone with training skills to help build his trust and confidence with new strangers.  Maex is about 45 pounds, typical in size. He is curious about cats so will do best with dog savvy cats and some supervision but he does take corrections easily about the cats. He was surrendered to the Farm from NY due to his energy level.
