CHAS found his forever home with another Border Collie who likes to play in the water just as much as he does and also loves jolly balls!

He will happily be one busy Border Collie living in New Hampshire!

CHAS: A 1 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Chas is a gem, very curious about everything around him and eager to explore. He is smart and focused and wants to play with other dogs. He is quickly enjoying his Border Collie friends at the Farm and could enjoy living with another BC or as a solo dog in an active home.  Chas loves toys and is interested in learning anything and everything. He is very playful and needs a furry friend for an outlet for his energy. He also loves the water and will enjoy a good dunk in the tub or swim in the creek. He is about 40 pounds, and he is not sure what to do with cats (gets a bit excited), will probably chase, so best with bc savvy cats . Chas was given up due to a lifestyle change, from upstate NY. He was very loved and cared for properly til the recent changes which left him alone 8-10 hours a day.

Lexie is very playful, enjoying racing and chasing games with other dogs. She is clearly motivated by food and loves to learn. Our trainer working with her said she is a genius - there isn't anything she won't try or do! Agility would be a snap for her. She is a really lovely, good natured girl and quite a lover, too. Lexie is great with other dogs and also cats and weighs approx 22 lbs. She and the father of the pups were surrounded to a PA shelter when she was pregnant.


BAXTER came to the farm one Sunday from a shelter in PA where he had been abandoned by an Amish breeder. At 8 months old, this sweet guy was happy to be at the Farm running and playing. One of our volunteers who works with us fell in love instantly that day and knew he would fit perfectly with her pack and the other blue merle BC, Bleu, she had adopted.  The two of them were a wonderful match and Baxter now happily lives in upstate NY. 

Baxter is super good natured which is amazing considering this sweet guy was neutered with rubber bands around his testicles at 3 months old, a technique often used with livestock. 


TAM found her forever home with two other Border Collies, one young one who loves to play just like her and the other, who loves the ball so she'll be non-stop playing, border collie style!

He is very gentle, obedient and eager to please. He loves an interactive relationship with people and can easily live anywhere where he can play but he also loves to chill out right by your side when inside.  He'll lay at your feet wherever you are, quiet as can be or then hop up, and head out for fun! He is about 40 pounds. Ollie is not good with cats. Ollie was relinquished to the Farm because of lack of time for him. 



TWIST found his new home with former adopters of the Farm where he'll be the best buddy to another Border Collie who loves to chase, wrestle and race as much as he does. The two of them hit it off quickly and were quite the pair enjoying the snow-filled paddocks at the Farm. We'll get to see Twist and Joie this summer when they visit camp!

MICKEE: A gorgeous 4 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers ,Mickee is very oriented to playing and racing, full of energy. He is very friendly and looking for something to focus on with his mind. He would benefit from the stimulation of toy play or possibly sports like agility or flyball. Mickee is really enjoying life at the Farm, being outside to run free in the fields since he spent most of his time inside the house while his previous guardian worked. Mickee is a strong male Border Collie so does best with female dogs or can be a solo dog.  He loves the water and will enjoy a good dunk in the tub or swim in the creek. Mickee will chase cats so will be placed in a non-cat home.  He was surrendered to the farm from a PA guardian who wanted more for them both. 


BOO found her forever home with adopters who have a senior dog from the Farm already and wanted to open their hearts and home again to help one in need. She quickly fit into their home routine, sleeping right by the bed, sweetly giving and asking for affection and fitting in with the dog gang at the house. Boo won their hearts quickly and now has a forever home in PA.

BOO is a twelve year old border collie that found herself in a NJ shelter because her long time friend had to go into a nursing home and couldn't take her.  Boo is all heart, sweet through and through, and still enjoys kicking up her heels for some play.  She has fit right into her temp foster home with 4 other dogs and gets long with cats.  She is quite the charmer with her pretty eyes and loves to be with her person best.  She came from NJ.



SHAE found his forever home with another Border Collie adopted from the Farm (in the same winter weather last year!).  It was clear that Shae wanted to play, play, play with his new friend and she came to life with a new furry friend, making up her own chase game which made them both quite happy.  They were both in sync with high energy minds yet easily laid side by side in the cabin, like good friends.  Shae now lives in Vermont.

SHAE: A 1 year old Border Collie, Shae is a lively young dog who needs stimulation from other young Border Collies since he likes to race and herd. He is also very very sweet, a real cuddler and very gentle with people, a love bug. He will be placed with another active Border Collie and in a home where he can have fun.  His reaction time is super fast mostly because he has an eye impairment. His optic nerves from the eye to the brain did not develop properly so he has impaired vision with some blind spots. Shae can see well and will not go blind but will need a guardian who is patient and understands how to work with him without expecting perfection. He will do well in a home with another easy going dog since he loves dogs and will model off their behavior and interests. Shae has a marvelous temperament, so loving and sweet and bonds instantly to everyone. He is about 30 pounds, fairly petite and is friendly with cats but will chase them. He was surrendered to a PA shelter due to a family illness.  We are sure he compensated well with his eyesight so no one previously realized he had this impairment.  


JUDD found his forever home with the PERFECT playmate, a furry friend who is all fun just like him. They were instant buddies, wrestling and racing and chasing, fantastic to see. Judd will be happily adored while he enjoys a ton of fun in his new life in Maine.

JUDD is a 10 month old Border Collie with all the fun loving energy of any young pup. He is very sweet, playful and alert, eager to interact with other Border Collies. Soon as he arrived at the Farm, he joined in herding games and fit right in. Judd is smart and interested in everything around him. He is fairly small for his age, more typical in size for a 6 month old. He is good with cats. Judd was given up to a Philadelphia shelter because his guardian lived in an apartment and he was too much for them. Thankfully, the shelter works with the Farm and agrees that Border Collies do not belong in urban city settings. 


Fabulous FIN found his forever home with another wonderful Border Collie mix who was adopted three years ago. Fin's new guardians were smitten by Fin's sweet, comical nature, happily trotting around with his toy in his mouth. And, just like his new furry friend, Joey, Fin then hopped up on the couch and took a rest while his new people talked about all the details of his new life. We are so happy for Fin to find his place where he'll be forever adored. Fin has been in rescue for almost a year, experiencing three foster homes and living in The Connor House, too, all helping to prepare him for this day. Little Fin came to us from a trucker, never having been in a yard or car and having little experience with life. The Fin we saw today headed out with his new fur Mom, with a little coaxing with treats and then jumped right into the car, happy to be next to his new person. We are so proud of Fin and all the progress he made, starting out as a very insecure scared pup who now loves everyone. A special thanks to Lori Coon, Pat Toomey, Kim Renak, Susan Monnelly and our entire caretaker team who worked lovingly to help Fin. He now lives with Joey in western NY where he'll be loved forever.

FIN: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie mix, Fin is a charming, good natured dog who enjoys other dogs immensely. He is very physical and loves to be chased as fast as he can as well as all kinds of wrestling and body blocking games. He is very high energy in his play needs but fairly quiet once inside. Fin is very smart, eager to please and willing learn. He can be a bit skittish with sounds outside at times so does best with another confident dog who wants to play which helps him gain his confidence. Fin is very fun and affectionate a a real sweetheart. He is good with cats and about 35 pounds. He was given up to the Farm due to his needs and the guardians wanted him to have another dog for play. He came from NJ.


CALLIE found her forever home with guardians who adore the breed and fell in love with Callie's brilliant thinking style as well as her play style as she romped with their Border Collie, Chance. Callie and Chance raced on the fields at the Farm and will surely have a blast on their own home turf, 5 acres fenced and 20 acres for exploring as she now lives in doggie paradise in New Hampshire. Callie happily settled in, enjoying the weekend and her first night with her new guardians and furry friend while staying at the Bed n Breakfast nearby the Farm.

LANCE found his forever home with marvelous guardians who cherish their dogs and clearly were smitten by Lance and his good-natured sweet ways. Lance loved the little schnauzer, Springer, since he used to live with a dachshund so he felt right at home. And, of course, Lance loved the hugs and kisses and then happily headed off to his new life in upstate NY where he'll have acres and acres to explore in his new rural life living on 40 acres with 5 acres electronic fenced, perfect for a border collie!

LANCE: A 2 1/2 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Lance is a wonderful sensitive Border Collie, quite gentle meeting people and very attuned to everyone he greets. He is very sweet and loving and attentive. He is not overly intense or high energy, rather a more thoughtful Border Collie, making decisions step by step, much like a working dog. Lance also loves to play with other Border Collies, racing and herding and gets along with all the dogs he meets. Lance lived with other dogs previously in an unfenced situation, but  has strong herding instincts with moving bikes or joggers so will need a hard fence.  Lance will be placed with older children or in an adult home since young children make him nervous, which is very common with the  breed. Lance is about 35 pounds and is great with cats. He came to the Farm from PA where he was a beloved family member. 




TRIM: An 8 month old Border Collie, Trim is interested in everything. He races and chases and runs like the wind. Trim is very focused and curious and could be easily trained in sports. He is very very sweet and gentle, a 'soft' dog who would do best with positive training. He is also very affectionate and loves attention. Trim will be placed with another young dog and someone who can help build his confidence further. He is good with cats and is about 35 pounds. Trim was left in a PA shelter's yard overnight, abandoned. 
ANGELL & TRIM found their forever home together! They met at the Farm and are fast friends and now get to be together for life on a wonderful farm with over 200 acres and loving guardians who fell in love with them and adore the breed.

She is about 35 pounds and is good with cats. Angell was relinquished directly to the Farm from PA where she had lived with an 86 year old woman who bought her. She was a beloved companion but too much for the woman. 


HOLLEE found her perfect home with a loving couple who provide both sides of what she likes to do: one is very active for the high energy Hollee and the other is the affectionate cuddler for the other side of Hollee which she just loves - a perfect pairing! Hollee will have lots of fun being their constant companion and even visiting on campus where her FurDad is in graduate school...knowing Hollee she'll be the hit of the campus! Hollee now lives in upstate NY.

HOLLEE: A petite 11 month old Border Collie, Hollee is very very smart and wants to be connected with a person instantly. She hops up into your lap for loving and then is ready to go for all action. She is very petite so would be a great sport candidate, a small lean little body and a brilliant mind looking for something to do. Hollee is good with other dogs but is a strong female so needs a submissive male companion or could be a solo dog if in a very active home. She is very very loving and enjoys every person she meets. She is not yet tested on cats and about 35 pounds. Hollee was in a shelter in PA who fortunately works with rescue. 


MAJOR found his forever home with a loving family that visited him recently and then his FurDad came back a bit later when they were all set to have him join their family. Major's focused play with the jolly ball and his classic BC herding 'eye' won their hearts plus his gentle good nature was the perfect fit for the little girl in the family, for whom Major would be her first dog. It's been said that first dogs are special angels on assignment that have important work to do because they open the hearts of children and adults in a brand new way, sharing all the unconditional love that only a dog can offer. We sincerely believe that Major waited almost a year to the day to find his new 'work' because he is an angel in fur, a wonderful heart worker just looking for the people who were his to join. We'll miss this special Border Collie but know he will surely be adored and share his heart fully. Major now lives in CT with a huge yard and a weekend home on 100 acres in Vermont!

Update from Home:  "We made it home with no problems at all.  Major was a perfect gentlemen. He is a very sad tomato though because he misses you and farm.  I felt so bad leaving. He was very confused and quiet most of the way but started to cheer up a little after Albany.  He cuddled next to me in the front most of the way.  When we got home we surprised Jessica completely.  The look on her face I will never forget. He has been through a very long day and just wanted to rest.  The picture sums it up very well.  We promise to send more pics." James

MAJOR: A 3 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Major is stunning to see in action and quite a thinker. He is very smart and would thrive in a situation where he could use his mind, body and heart. He is very affectionate and friendly to everyone he meets, a real people dog, happy to play or happy to lounge in your lap. He  loves the water and will enjoy a good dunk in the tub or swim in the creek. He also loves the frisbee and will happily 'set-up' for a good throw, over and over again. He is a confident dog and gets along best with female border collies, not males. He could be a solo dog in an active home. Major is also good with cats and is about 45 pounds. Major loves a challenge and will be placed with Border Collie savvy guardians who understand the needs of the breed. He is part of the 25 dogs surrendered to the farm from a guardian in PA who had personal problems financially and with alcohol. 


SPARKY found his forever home the day he arrived in his foster family's house. They fell in love instantly and happily welcomed him into their lives. He joins three other dogs from the Farm and two loving guardians and their children, all of whom have hearts of gold. Sparky now lives in Ct.

SPARKY: A 15 year old Border Collie, Sparky is one of the most delightful dogs to come into rescue. He is a doll, absolutely wonderful with everyone, happy to be with people and fine with other dogs. Sparky is good natured, easy going and very well balanced. He is super sweet, and filled with energy. Everyone who meets him, even the vet who did his wellness check, could not believe the energy in this 15 year old..no one can believe he is a senior, which is testament to the nature of this breed, active and healthy for a long long time. Sparky is good with cats.  He is carrying a bit of extra weight but we aren't too concerned about that considering at 105 years old (in human terms), most of us would have a few extra pounds too! Sparky was relinquished to the Farm from his guardian who took him in at age 13 after his original guardian had a house fire, loosing everything. The woman who has had him felt she couldn't provide the care any longer. He came to the Farm from NJ and is now in a foster home being lovingly adored in CT, with one of our adopters. 


GREAT NEWS FOR RAVEN! He is staying with his foster family who have not only fallen in love with him but they know with his health challenges, he's in the right place for forever! Raven's digestive problems are under control and he's back up to a great weight of 74 pounds, like normal. He's such a sweet guy that they are even thinking he'll become one of their therapy visiting dogs! We are thrilled for Raven and so appreciative of Judi and Andy who gave him their hearts and all the help he needed.

RAVEN is a 7 year old neutered male Border Collie mix. He is a wonderful sweetheart, so happy to be with you and eager to go anywhere you want to go, a real lover. Raven would be a marvelous companion and is great with kids, dogs and cats. He also loves to explore the outdoors, happy to sniff and run and take in a beautiful day. He also loves toys and ball play of any kind!  Raven has one health situation that is being solved now in foster care. He has a pancreatic insufficiency and will need digestive enzymes to help him digest food. A few tablets before each meal provide what he needs. His foster family is presently bringing him back to normal weight since he finally has the ability to retain the nutrients he needs. Raven came into rescue  horribly underweight and had been beaten for having loose stools, under the assumption he was not housetrained. In fact, he has a health challenge that can be solved. Raven's original guardian passed away and Raven's life has been a tough one since then. One of the family members stepped in to care for him but left him alone several days at a time, hollered at him and generally did not want him. Fortunately, when he was turned into a PA shelter they contacted the farm to take him since they are so full. He's a beautiful dog - inside and out- and deserves a great family to love.  He is presently being fostered in Buffalo, NY.


TRENT waited for just the right home and he found it! He is joining a loving family with another Border Collie adopted from the farm as well as a great pack of friends for constant play and great hikes in the woods. Trent instantly joined this group as a friend and of course, captured the hearts of his guardians especially the daughter whose lap he is in, when she came with her Mom to help her grandfather adopt a dog from the Farm, about a month ago. At that time, Trent's sweet nature won her heart and she couldn't stop thinking of him so back they came for him!! Trent now lives in MA.

TRENT: A 6 month old Border Collie, Trent is adorable, a real people pup. He loves everyone and is easy going and confident, happy to be a part of the action. He is great with other dogs and has already been socialized with adult dogs and does beautifully. He is showing herding tendencies and already enjoys herding games with other Border Collies. Trent is very smart, loves to play but most importantly, loves to cuddle!! He is very playful and focused and needs another young Border Collie for his energy though he is not overly intense. He is not yet neutered and will be placed with an adoption contract requiring neutering. Trent will do best without cats or with dog savvy cats used to being herded. Trent came to us from a shelter in PA.


PENN found his forever home with two fun-loving, toy driven, high energy Border Collies, one of which was adopted from the Farm three years ago. Penn will get to enjoy tons of play and tons of love, joining a family that adores the breed and provides exactly what they need to be happy. Penn of course loved all the cuddles and will clearly join the pack. He now lives in Ct.

PENN: A 1 year old Border Collie, Penn is a lively, good natured dog who is really friendly with people and happy to be in the middle of fun. He loves playing with the other dogs and is eager to be actively involved with toys or a person. He races and chases, making up Border Collie herding games with any dog who will play. Penn is gentle with people, cuddly and eager to please. He is already responsive to commands and connects quickly to anyone he is with. Penn is about 35 pounds. He has no experience with cats so is afraid of them and at the present time, barks when meeting one. He is not lunging to hurt the cat but has no clue what to do so will take some patient training and positive introductions. He was a stray in PA. 



  RHETT won the hearts of his new guardians with his wonderful soulful eyes and then ironically, one day thinking of him, on came Gone With The Wind and that was all the sign they needed to come to meet him. Of course, he was exactly as they had hoped and their dog loved him, too! Rhett will be their constant companion, enjoying tons of play and even some fun water games at the nearby lake in upstate NY.

RHETT: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Rhett is a loving dog with lots of energy! He is easy going but also absolutely loves chasing and racing and playing with other dogs. Rhett is focused on the people he meets and very eager to please so could easily be trained. He is smart and attentive and wants to be with you, friendly to everyone. Rhett is very good natured and happy go lucky. He is about 40 pounds and is good with cats. He was dropped at a PA shelter where someone had found him as a stray. His coat was clipped and will grow in to be beautiful. 


Sweet FAITH found her forever home a bit before she was even officially available when two of our board members met her and were completely smitten. Faith's sweet, gentle, shy nature won them over because they adopted another GHF dog rather similar a few years ago, Cassie. They understood exactly what she would need to blossom and trust a new life filled with love. Faith will be living with four other GHF Border Collies and three other furry friends as part of her new canine pack of friends. She'll have plenty to do, including herding all of them! She now lives in upstate NY.

FAITH: A 1 year old Border Collie, Faith is so gentle and sweet, gently licking your hand as you set it near her. She'll quietly come up when you're not looking and give the greatest kisses, then retreat away from the action. She is a shy girl right but loves the soft touch of someone with her and is happiest with her canine friends. Faith comes to life chasing other Border Collies and absolutely loves having a dog friend so will be placed with another Border Collie, ideally. We are still working to support Faith's health fully before placing her in a new home. She will be placed with another dog or dog(s) in a quiet adult home. Faith is good with cats and will be placed in a hard fence situation only since the electronic fence would add to the skittishness already present. She is currently in the founder's home, enjoying life with the gang of Farm dogs. Faith and two other BC's came to us from a puppy mill situation in PA where they were fortunately rescued.



CHECKERZ found his forever home with another Border Collie so he'll have lots of fun making up games and even more importantly to him, he found loving guardians who will cherish him forever and adored his sweet nature and gentle ways. Checkerz clearly adored them too and happily headed out the gate to his new life of Border Collie fun with a chance to try agility, flyball and even vacation at doggie camp. He now lives in NJ.

CHECKERZ: A 3 year old Border Collie, Checkerz has a wonderful personality and loves people. He is very outgoing, happy to meet everyone and happily say hello. He also loves toys and will retrieve a ball as well as chase a squeaky toy.  He is good natured and eager to connect with a person. Checkerz is good with other dogs but also would enjoy being the center of attention so could be a solo dog. He is super sweet, with a lot of personality and clearly a very smart boy. He will chase cats, herding them so needs border collie savvy cats or no cats in his new home. He is on the taller side and carrying some extra weight but will loose that quickly here. In his previous home, he was left alone for ten hours a day so did not get enough exercise or stimulation. He was relinquished to the Farm because his guardian was having surgery and could not care for him any longer. He came from PA. 


LUCY found her forever home with another Border Collie who likes to herd as much as she does. Together, they'll be chasing geese and enjoying agility and flyball, all of which will help build Lucy's confidence. She clearly loved her new person and became fast friends with her canine friend as they clicked into mental border collie games like they had lived together all their lives. Lucy will surely be adored and has found a person who can patiently guide her into fully trusting that life is great!  Lucy now lives in NY.

LUCY is a very very petite (approx 22lbs), 10 month old Border Collie who loves to herd. She is very focused and fast and since she is so small, able to move, turn and angle quickly. She is happiest herding other Border Collies or chasing and playing with them since she is clearly very smart and needs the mental stimulation of another smart dog. She loves people and attention, a real sweetheart who cuddles up with you. Outdoors she is all action, dashing after the other dogs to play and exploring everywhere. She is smart, fast, and full of energy. Lucy does have a skittish nature with new people and especially men so will go to a border collie savvy home with other herding dogs and with someone who can build her confidence. She could easily learn agility which would build her confidence but will need someone seasoned with this breed to work with her. Lucy is curious about cats but submissive. Lucy came from a home where she spent most of her day in a crate too small for her, from CT.



PALMER found his forever home, waiting patiently for just the right guardians who would understand his athletic, outgoing, energetic nature as well as his soft cuddly personality.

Razz will be adored forever living in upstate NY.

He is a wonderful, sweet dog. Razz will be placed with another dog since his energy needs are high. He is very physical in racing, running and wrestling with other dogs. Razz is about 50 pounds and is good with cats but very active and curious so can intimidate a cat not used to dogs. Razz will do best with a seasoned person who can build his confidence with strangers since he can over-react to meeting someone new sometimes.  He will be placed in an adult home. He came to the Farm from a MA shelter who felt he needed a home that understood his needs so would be best placed by a rescue.  Razz is in foster care in upstate NY and can be seen at the farm

Sometimes she just loves a roll in the grass; other times exploring every inch of the yard; and other times, she wants to be your shadow 'on duty', checking out all the action. Morgan loves to ride in the car and her favorite treat is american cheese - just say cheese and she heads for the fridge for her nightly treat.

Meet Max.... an 8 mo border collie mix currently at the Newark Shelter in NJ.  Max has passed his temperament test with flying colors and really wants out of the shelter. He's neutered, housebroken, up to date on his shots and finds himself in the shelter because his family had to move without him.

Max gets along with other dogs, is very curious about his environment, and loves to provide hugs and kisses.  At this young age, he still has lots of energy for an active family, and because of the mix will make a wonderful companion - he would probably enjoy another canine friend if possible.  Please consider making Max a permanent member of your family -
