RASCAL found his new
family very quickly soon as he met the kids in the family - he just loved
them and of course, he wanted to play with his new Border Collie friend,
Douglas, too. They ran and chased and made up games, starting a great
relationship together. Rascal will be absolutely adored and lucky for him,
he may get to try agility, too! He now lives in the Cape Cod area of
RASCAL: A 4 month old Border Collie,
Rascal is a delightful, smart little guy who wants to explore everything.
He is curious and outgoing and eager to meet other dogs. He'll clearly
enjoy a canine friend and will play endlessly. He loves to play ball,
comes to the whistle and is ready to learn lots of new things, like any
young pup. Rascal is from a breeder in NY but his guardians felt he
was too much for them with a toddler, too. He is good with cats
and average in size for his age, about 25 pounds.
Lovely LAUREN finally
found the perfect spot where she can share all her wonderful sweet nature
non-stop (she loves children) and she'll be an agility star, trying every
obstacle and we're sure she'll excel at it all. She is fearless and
curious and brilliant, the best combination for a sport dog and of course,
a gentle cuddler for the kids. She has a canine friend who she also loved
chasing in the fields while visiting at the Farm. She now lives in Ct. We
are so thrilled for Lauren and her new life and so happy we could help
make it possible for her to share her glorious spirit! A special thanks
again to all the donors who helped us with Lauren's Cornell care that
saved her life.
LAUREN: A 10 month old Border
Collie, Lauren is super smart, very very agile and fast and she loves any
challenge. She is very interested in all kinds of toys and loves all kinds
of dog tricks. Lauren is so agile she can actually dance and twirl around
on her hind legs. She know shake and catch and does the fastest crawl ever
seen. And, when she's really excited about something, she just bounces
straight up on all fours! She is brilliant, attentive and eager to work
and play. Lauren would be wonderful with another Border Collie friend and
would be a great sport candidate. She completed her medical treatment to
handle the rat poison she had eaten before coming to the Farm and is fully
recovered. She is in perfect medical condition and clearly, watching her,
one of the happiest, healthiest girls! Lauren is good with
cats. Lauren was relinquished
JB found his new
forever home with a family that does agility and thought he would be a
wonderful addition to their life and so much fun! And, when they met him,
they knew they were right. JB will have three small canine cocker spaniel
friends who also do agility. Watching them walk right under him as they
moved around the room, him being so much taller, was very humorous. JB
happily hopped up on the couch with his new guardians and soaked in all
the love and attention and once the toys came out, he was back on the
floor ready to go! JB now lives in Canada.
- (aka JONNY): A 2 year old
Border Collie/Ňussie, JB is a major toy dog..he loves every kind of
toy and will play endlessly and also entertain himself happily! He is a
striking dog to watch running across the fields, almost like a prance, he
is light on his feet and super fast. He could easily do sports and is very
eager to learn. JB is very very smart and fits in great with other dogs
but is most happiest when someone is engaged in toy play with him. He is
easy going and good natured and loves attention, too. He will be OK with
dog savvy cats - he likes to chase them, but won't hurt them. JB is about 45 pounds.
JB was given up from a NY
guardian who could not meet his needs.
A 4 1/2 year old Border Collie mix, Maxy is a happy, good natured,
loveable dog who enjoys racing and exploring. He loves people and quickly
jumps up for a full shoulder hug since it's easy for him to reach you head
to head. Maxy is Mr Affection, a real love-bug. He spent one evening with
a group of 13 teenagers enjoying a slumber party and he was the center of
the attention at his foster home. Maxy is attentive and would be eager to
learn whatever challenge he is given. He settles well inside and wants to
be part of the activities around him. Maxy is not yet tested on cats. He
is 65 pounds. He was abandoned at a PA shelter.
& Pipp found the perfect people for a new life together. They
quickly fell in love with Maxy's high energy and wonderful sweet nature
and when they met Pipp, they knew their home would be a safe, gentle place
for him to continue blossoming. The three dogs happily met and seemed like
they lived together all their lives. Maxy will be running each day and of
course playing and even learning agility. Pipp will enjoy a wonderful
property for playing and exploring and join their canine friend, Whitman,
who has always lived with at least four dogs so got his pack back too!
They now live in NY.
is a 2 yr old Border Collie mix who traveled a long way from
Ecuador to the states in order to find safe haven. He is a sweet, gentle
dog who is curious about everything. He is fairly timid but interested in
everything that goes on around him and very food motivated so so it's easy
to build a relationship. Pipp is wonderful with other dogs and loves dog
play of any kind and really comes to life, a very happy guy. He will be
placed with another confident dog since he quickly learns from other dogs
and needs some time to feel comfortable with people and new situations.
Pipp must have a hard fence since he is skittish. Pipp was
originally part of a litter dumped at the door of a caring person in
Ecuador. We appreciate the angel support to bring him to the Farm.
He is about 35 pounds, and is fine with cats.
BUDI: A 6 month old Border Collie, Budi is all
about people and lots of attention. He loves to cuddle and easily wants to
be in your lap. He also loves to play and chase and is learning all
about herding games since being at the Farm. He lived with eight
children in his home in PA, bought as a gift from the grandmother.
But, without a fence, he was barking on a tie-out and about to be
euthanized by animal control. Thankfully, he made it to the Farm.
SHELBY & BUDI
found their forever homes together! Shelby was thrilled to have people who
understood her ball throwing antics and happily love her focus and need to
'work-play'. She'll be their constant companion which she'll of course
love. Plus, Budi will join in all the fun, learning all about toys and
border collie games as he grows up 'under her wing'. Their new guardians
fell in love with them and quickly knew this pair was exactly what they
wanted to add to their life. Shelby and Budi now live in central NY.
SHELBY: A 2 year old Border Collie, Shelby is a focused, fast and
brilliant girl who is great with other dogs but is crazy about her
ball. She will retrieve endlessly and is super fast and ready to go,
happily pushing the ball toward you over and over again. Shelby came
to the Farm from the Cape Cod area originally when her guardian
could not meet her needs
BOB found his forever
home not far from the Farm when his new guardian was looking for another
beloved Border Collie mix and realized we were right in her back yard.
More importantly, it was Bob that was so close. She knew he was exactly
what she was looking for - a wonderful, sweet, smart companion to share
her home. He hopped right up on the couch next to her, with his favorite
ball, and basically, said 'let's go!" and off he went to a new life
where he will be cherished.
TOMMY found the
perfect life for him where he'll be doing agility, herding and any other
border collie game that is of interest to him! His new furMom fell in love
and wants to enjoy exposing him to all the challenges he wants and we are
pretty sure, knowing Tommy, he'll excel at them all. Tommy will have
canine friends, another Border Collie and a little dachshund who didn't
mind all his intensity at all. We're thrilled for Tommy and his new
family. He now lives in upstate NY.
is a petite 7 month old liver colored Border Collie with ABCA papers who
is all about sports. He is a frisbee nut, ready to catch any toss and play
any game with any toy at any time. He is a wonderful guy and very focused,
great in new situations, fitting just beautifully. Tommy is the perfect
size for agility or flyball, and could excel easily since he is so agile.
He is fine with other dogs but could easily live as the only dog since he
really wants an active relationship with a person for his play which to
him, is his work. He has a great temperament and while he is high energy,
he is also very good natured and easy going. Tommy is about 35 pounds and
not yet tested on cats. He was given up due to a break-up, from
PA. Tommy is being fostered in upstate Ny and can be
seen at the farm.
COOP found his new
life with loving guardians who adored him the minute they met him and
hadn't even come to see him but soon as their dog arrived, it was crystal
clear that her play style and his would match perfectly and that's exactly
what happened. They raced full speed around the field, wrestled and
playing like they had been living together forever. Coop loved his new
family, happy for belly rubs and happy to have a new canine friend, too.
He now lives in Ct and will be forever adored and never be cast off again.
a 2 year old Border Collie, Coop is a loving, sweet guy who is
friendly with everyone, a really cuddly, good natured guy. He is one of
the sweetest Border Collies, a very soft, gentle dog so would do best with
submissive dogs or even as a solo dog. He bonds quickly and wants to be
with his person. Coop is so people oriented, we feel he could be a superb
therapy dog candidate. His love pours out to everyone he meets and he is
so gentle so could easily be with people in need and not scare them or
overwhelm them. He is fine with cats and about 45 pounds. He was in
a bad situation uncared for properly in TN, was enroute to a maryland
rescue who had no space so we took him in at the Farm.
Sweet Samm picked his
people himself, barking from across the fields, catching their attention.
He wasn't on the list to see but his new guardian immediately realized he
wanted to see them and as they say, the rest is history. They fell in love
with his gentle nature combined with his brilliance and once he landed in
their laps, he was not leaving, that's for sure. Samm will have another
Border Collie friend, Fly, adopted from the Farm, too. He'll get to try
agility and hike every day in beautiful forests, enjoying his new life.
SAMM: A 4 year old Border Collie with
ABCA papers, Samm is a gorgeous brindle color and has a sweet nature to
match his good looks. He is very very smart and eager to bond with a
person. Samm loves everyone and also enjoys playing with toys for a good
game of chase. He is not overly intense, instead would be a wonderful
companion accompanying his person everywhere. He is great with other dogs
and could easily live with another Border Collie or be a solo dog. He is
not yet tested on cats and about 50 pounds. Samm came to the Farm
from Vermont, given up because he was chasing the horses in an unfenced
Sweet Bennett found
his forever home with another canine friend who instantly liked him,
showing a play bow and feeling comfortable. He felt the same way plus
loved his new guardians who were charmed by his gentle, sweet nature,
nicknaming 'gentle Ben'. Bennett will be their beloved canine friend and
he may get a chance to help out his furMom in charming the senior citizens
she works with as a part of her job. He could go to work with her on
visits and share his big heart! Bennett now lives in MA.
A 5 year old Border Collie, Bennett is a wonderful boy with a sweet,
sweet, gentle nature. He loves to say hello, quietly coming over for
attention. No matter who Bennett meets, he loves everyone and they love
him, too. Then, he races off in a fast pace, around the fields, making up
his herding games. He is super quick and light on his feet, a classic
Border Collie. Bennett is fine with other dogs and not yet tested on cats.
He has some vision impairment, much like a person who needs glasses, so
sometimes has some challenges with shapes. It doesn't bother him much and
he can see fine otherwise. He was a stray in PA. Bennett
is being fostered in NJ and can be seen at the Farm.
RAYE:A 3 year old Border Collie, Raye
is a ball nut - he absolutely loves to play and play and play. He will
chase high speed after any throw and quickly return to drop it at your
feet, hoping for another good toss. Raye is easy going but can get nervous
in new situations so will need a seasoned Border Collie guardian. He is
very sweet with everyone and eager to meet anyone nearby. Raye is about 45
pounds and good with cats. He came to the farm from a NY
vet hospital where he had been abandoned. Raye was returned
to the Farm recently due to issues that we'll be working on to improve.
RAYE and BANDIT
found a new life with people who can provide geese chasing work, keeping
them active and busy using their minds and bodies. Both Raye and Bandit
needed a special situation where their issues could be worked on without
the pressures of suburban life, kids and chaos. They both are part of a
unique program, living and herding geese at a correctional facility in MA.
They have a 200 acre farm that is theirs to explore and with so many
people, they'll have plenty of ball and frisbee play, too, as well as
chasing the geese each day. They both will enjoy constant companionship
offered in this setting, as well as being the special resident border
collies. Raye's previous guardian gave him up when he went to jail and
Bandit's previous guardian was a police officer so in an interesting twist
of fate, they found a place that can tolerate their quirkiness, as
well as help their more serious issues.
|BANDIT: A 4 year old Border Collie with
AKC papers, Bandit is not only gorgeous, he is fun and very very smart. He
is very attentive to anyone he is with and absolutely loves to play ball
and frisbee. He has a strong drive so needs an outlet like sports or an
active home or another Border Collie for play. Bandit loves challenges and
will need mental engagement but he is not hyper or overly intense. He is
quite obedient and eager to please. Bandit is best with dog savvy cats. He is 50 pounds. Bandit
was given up due to issues with the toddler in the house but he lived with
a 10 year old and was fine with older children. He came to the Farm from
KC: A 3 year old Border Collie, KC is
athletic and lively and quite agile, loving to catch her ball racing for
it as fast as she can. KC is very very smart and observant about
everything going on around her. She can also be very shy at first and
needs a safe spot to hide while she understands new situations around her.
Once she is comfortable, she is a fun, loving, live-wire. KC is good with
other dogs though can be nervous so needs another dog friend to help with
her confidence but it would need to be a submissive Border Collie since
she is so submissive. She is enjoying all the action at the Farm and
blossoming. KC is sound sensitive and needs a patient guardian who
understands the quirkiness that comes with Border Collies. KC is about 40
pounds and good with cats. She was given up by guardians in
NJ who had little toddlers that made KC anxious.
KC & CHANCE
found their forever home together! They've been rooming together for quite
awhile and really like each other so when their new guardians came to
adopt and fell in love with Chance, they decided to meet KC, too and she
won their hearts as well. They are patient and understand the quirky
nature of KC since they've had many border collies and aussies so knew
they could help her blossom even further in their home. Chance quickly
enjoyed his new aussie friend, Abby, as KC herded around them both as they
played in the adoption office. A great trio for sure! KC & Chance now
have 50 acres to explore as well as sheep, horses, chickens and ducks to
keep an eye on which will keep them both very busy. Of course, most
importantly, they'll enjoy lots of love as they explore their new world.
CHANCE: A petite 2 year old Border
Collie, Chance is all about toys -he just loves to play, play, play. He
also adores people and enjoys lots of affection, a really cuddly guy.

Border Collies so would be a great companion. He likes to learn and would
love being with a person who stimulates his mind. Chance is good with cats
and weighs 35 pounds He came from a shelter in PA where he was
JAY JAY found his
forever home!!! While the picture isn;t the best, the meeting sure was...JayJay
and his new canine friend, ran and ran and enjoyed playing so well, it
looked like they had been friends forever. His new guardians just adored
him instantly and didn't want to meet anyone else. They had a feeling
JayJay was the one they wanted to take home before they came to the farm,
and within minutes, knew he was the one heading home with them forever.
JayJay took his bed from his Border Collie angel, the Yurga family and
said a special thanks to the Hoger family, who kindly fostered him these
past few months. All the love from them, his angel and Ann Gardner, our
intake person who pulled JayJay out of a rough situation, really showed
today, when this handsome 65 pound gorgeous boy headed out to his new life
A very special thanks to the Crotty
family who kindly took Sunday to bring JayJay back to the farm so he could
meet his new guardians and start a new life! They were generous with
their time to also bring Mitzi back to rescue and then turn around and
transport both Lass and Riley to their foster homes. A very important
effort made today and a big thanks to them.
JAY JAY: An
12 year old Border
Collie, Jay Jay is a doll, a friendly, happy good natured dog who loves
everyone. He truly makes friends wherever he goes because he is so sweet.
He is good with other dogs and cats and enjoys being in the middle of the
fun of the household. Jay Jay also loves riding in the car and enjoys
walking on leash. He has a lot of weight to go before he's back to his
fully spirited self thanks to a guardian who kept feeding him junk food.
We'll get him in good shape again and his body will match his wonderful
good nature soon. Jay Jay lived in one home since a puppy and really bonds
to his person. He doesn't even need a fence. He was given up in a
difficult divorce case. He came to the Farm from Ct . JJ
is being fostered in Central NY
QUE found his forever
home with former adopters who kindly evaluate dogs in shelters who need to
come into rescue. Well, one snowy day, they shoveled their driveway
at a moment's notice and headed to a shelter nearby and there, unbeknownst
to them, was their new dog! Que won their hearts as soon as they met
him but he came into foster care anyway to get healthy. As the days
rolled by, they felt surer and surer that he had to come live with them!
So, Que found his way home! He now lives in PA with two other Border
Collies and he'll be plenty busy with flyball and other bc games!
QUE, a 1 yr old border
collie (possibly a mix or possibly a miniature bc), he is adorable with
his one blue eye and one blond. Que is puppy like in his play, bouncing
after toys and using his paws to play with your hands. He's also a
great cuddler. At 19lbs, Que is a perfect lap companion, and
is ready to go when you are. He loves the car, gets along with cats,
and other dogs. He can be a little shy in new situations or with men, but
warms up quickly with a treat and a scratch on the head. He
was a stray in a PA shelter that asked for our help. He
is being fostered in NJ.
DAVIS found his new
life with a wonderful family who loved his sweet kisses and were happy to
have him cuddle in their laps but besides that, Davis is about to learn
flyball and become a fast, focused ball nut! He joins another canine ball
nut, Ginger, his lab friend who thought Davis was just the perfect friend
for her, too. We're surely hear great updates about this wonderful guy who
deserves all the love he is about to receive.
A 9 month old Border Collie, Davis is a playful, happy, easy going dog who
loves people. He is super friendly and quite the cuddler. He also loves to
play with other dogs and would be happy with another young furry friend
for sure. Davis is not as intense as some purebreds and could easily be a
companion, content with love and attention. He is a bit comical with his
antics and we chuckle watching him learn all the new things he's learning
here at the Farm. He was quite surprised by the quacking toy duck, trying
to make sense of that funny odd sound. He is good with cats Davis was relinquished from
another rescue in NY who got him to safety and then wanted him placed by
Toe-tapping Tipp found
his forever home with two other canine friends who thought he was just
great and new guardians who were charmed by his great nature, dancing ways
and fun, loving personality. Tipp will enjoy lots of hikes, exploring and
even agility. He now lives in NJ and will be adored for all his wonderful
TIP: A 1 year old Border Collie, Tip is
a love bug with a comical nature. He earned his name from his tip-toe
dance he does all the time as he moves around, sort of a like a boxer
getting ready for the punch. He is our 'tiny dancer', light on his feet,
always moving. He is quite the cuddler, too, happy to get attention and
when you make funny sounds, he gets all excited to play. Tip is smart and
attentive and will do well with less pressured training. He was a in an
unstructured situation on a farm, running with other Border Collies. He
might be happiest as a solo dog where he can be the focus of attention or
with a strong female Border Collie since that is what he's used to. Tip is
not good with cats. He came from upstate NY.
RILEY charmed everyone
with his gorgeous good looks and sweet nature, actually attracting eight
applicants! His smiling face caught everyone's eye but he had a plan all
his own. His foster Mom had transported him to the Farm and kindly
overnighted him, then offered to foster him long term since he was
stressed at the Farm. He fit perfectly in her home but she wanted the best
possible life for him, so traveled to the Farm for his first adoptive
meeting. She watched as he sat himself right next to her most of the time
and as the people watched his interactions with their dogs and decided
another dog was a better fit. She breathed a sigh of relief. Finally, she
knew what she had to do so Riley now lives with the person who got to know
him the best and he is one happy Border Collie! We are so happy for both
canine and human since we know he'll be cherished by one of our long time
supporters and key volunteers - congratulations Jane and Riley!
RILEY: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie,
Riley is a gorgeous, more petite size BC who loves affection. He is
friendly with everyone, happy to be petted and spend time with anyone he
meets. He is good natured and likes other dogs but could be a solo dog,
too. Riley is less active and intense than most purebreds due to his
breeding which was to make a smaller border collie without herding
instincts, more like a 'show' BC. We took in 6 of Riley's siblings awhile
ago from the NJ breeder when he stopped breeding so know, based on his
looks, this is where he came from, too. Riley is a nice, easy going
companion, happy to have a wonderful life with his person. Riley was
a stray in NJ, landing in a shelter that works with the Farm.
a 4 year old purebred border collie, Timm is a friendly, smart, toy
focused dog. He would be an exceptional sport dog as has incredible eye
for frisbee, balls and all toys. He is fast, focused and very very smart.
He is eager to relate to people and would be happy interacting with an
active person for play. Timm loves to show you his brilliance, eager for a
person to connect with. He loves canoes and kayak rides and he even gives
great 'high fives'! He also has a continual 'roll over' when asked to work
for a treat. He would be happiest as a solo dog since he doesn't get
along with all breeds, except he loves Border Collies so could be with
another BC. He is about 45
pounds, typical in size for the breed and will chase cats but not hurt
them and is easily corrected but will be best with cats used to border
collies . Timm came from a shelter in PA to the Farm in 2005, was
adopted out and then returned when his guardian had financial troubles.
He was a beloved companion and devoted frisbee friend til this bad
CJ & TIMM
found their new life together! They had been together at the Farm and now
will continue their herding games with their new guardians who were
smitten with them both. They knew they wanted to adopt two but had come
thinking of taking only one now and one later but once they met these two
special Border Collies, they had to take them both home for sure. CJ
shared her loving sweet nature and Timm showed off his athletic frisbee
and ball talents...making them the perfect pair! They will have plenty of
land to explore, lots of activities and tons of love in their new home in
NJ with loving people who are just as active as this pair.
CJ: A 2 year old Border Collie with
ABCA papers, CJ is a sweet, gentle girl who loves her person and loves to
give kisses. She comes to life when people are around and is now learning
about other dogs at the Farm. She is a strong female so would be happy
with another submissive Border Collie or a solo dog. She is very smart and
showing herding tendencies though not an overly intense Border Collie. She
could certainly excel in learning anything but also would enjoy be a
companion to a person. She is about 40 pounds and previously lived with cats. Her
previous guardian died and fortunately the family found the Farm. She came
ALEC - ADOPTED
ALEC found his forever
home with two other Border Collies who he will join in working geese at a
country club in MA. His guardians love the breed and were thrilled with
this little guy, his thoughtful nature and his focused action! He's going
to have plenty of love for sure and thrive on doing what he's bred to do -
herd! Alec happily started his new life!
SCOOBY found his new
life with a former adopter who patiently waited for him to come to the
Farm, "knowing" he was the perfect dog for them. He joins Molie,
another Farm alum, for a life on a farm where he'll help out accompanying
his new guardians with their daily tasks. Scooby happily headed out to a
life where he would join in everything that goes on each day and night,
using his brilliant mind and sharing his loving nature. He now lives in
a 5 yr old border collie with ABCA papers, Scooby is a lover. He wants lots of
attention and gives as much love as he gets. He is one sweet boy.
Scooby is not an intense herder, he is a more mellow personality that
enjoys being with his people and cuddling. He is very easy going and
friendly with everyone. Scooby loves kids and is good with cats. He is
also great with other dogs and could live with them or be a solo dog. Scooby
was relinquished to the Farm from a NJ home where he had been separated,
living in the basement, because the family's two other dogs did not like
him. Through no fault of his own, Scooby had a
very inactive life and is now ready to have some border collie fun!
