A 6 month old Border Collie, Lex came into rescue and had waiting adopters
eager to meet her. This bundle of energy, smart, focused and go, go go
will have a great life now where she can do agility all the time. Her new
FurMom trains every week as well as dog sits so she'll enjoy plenty of
canine friends for fun, as well as her own canine buddies she lives with!
Lex fit in as if she'd lived in her new family all her life, excited to do
everything and go everywhere! She now lives in NJ. She came from MD from
guardians who knew she needed more than they could give so selflessly
relinquished her to rescue.
to Tim Toomey who kindly transported Lex into rescue!
found a great life where he'll join his guardians for lots of exploring
and outdoor activities, including frisbee of course, which he loves! He'll
be the constant companion to his new FurMom, going to work with her each
day and have other dog friends at work for play. He's got the best of
everything - companionship with humans and dogs! And, Keagan loved them!
Keagan now lives in Vt.
4 year old Border Collie, Keagan is very smart and very sweet. He loves
everyone and is eager to play ball or hang out by your side. He is,
however, an active boy who needs an outlet for his mind and body and loves
to play ball! Keagan is great with other dogs so we want to give him
another BC for active play to help with his energy needs, too though, in
the right home, he'd be fine as a solo dog. He'd love to meet other dogs
in his day to day life, too. Keagan is one of those Border Collies
with the perfect 'off-switch'...he settles completely in the house and
hangs wherever you are and then outside, he's all about ball play. He
loves toys of any kind and really blossoms with a person who is engaged in
playing with him. Keagan is a big time frisbee player and really loves it!
He is good off leash and smart as can be. He
is fine with cats and about 45 pounds.
was a stray in PA and lived for a month with someone who wanted to keep
him but couldn't for landlord reasons.
is being fostered in New Hampshire with our former Caretaker so can be met
there or at the Farm.
found the life she needed and loves...working sheep! She'll be working to
help her new FurMom manage their Farm in moving the sheep field to field
which Viv knows exactly how to do. She'll have 54 acres to call her own,
hiking and exploring for time off, too. Viv is a treasured family member,
enjoying the love she deserves in being their beloved companion as well as
important worker! She now lives in Ct.
A petite 6 year old Border Collie, Viv is an amazing girl, super smart,
watchful of everything around her. She is always working to make sense of
what is going on to see how she can fit in. Viv is smart as they come, a
classic BC. She has worked all her life, weekend herding of sheep and
goats on a farm. She always offered her best effort. She gets along with
other dogs well and cats, too. She's a tiny girl who could easily be a
wonderful companion with someone who can include her in their day, so her
person is her job. Viv is very quiet and composed when inside. We will
consider working situations carefully but Viv clearly could enjoy life as
an active friend. She is not good with chickens. She came from
found the perfect life - chasing geese! He's now all set with daily work
as the companion to his new FurDad who goes out each day to handle geese
problems in NJ. Soon as Paddy saw the birds, he was off after them,
showing the potential to not only do well but absolutely love what he's
doing. He'll be in good hands with guardians who have been working in
geese chasing for years and understand the needs of the breed. THey fell
in love with Paddy's charming nature and knew he'd be a wonderful family
member,too. He now lives in NJ.
ADDY: A 1 year old Border Collie mix,
Paddy (or Paterson), is a live- wire, fun loving happy guy who loves to run
with other dogs. He loves to wrestle and chase and roll around non-stop.
But, Paddy has a soft side where he wants to cuddle endlessly, tucked into
your lap just right so he can rest his head on your arm. He'll stay there
for long periods of time, so content to be with his person. He also loves
to sit curled up next to you on the couch, relaxed and settled for a nap.
While Paddy has that soft, affectionate side, he does need another canine
friend for his energy needs. He is smart and active and wants to play.
Paddy would enjoy being the companion to someone who is active and would
take him everywhere. He will need an invisible fence since he can clear a
fence in seconds in order to get to his person or the action of other dogs
playing. Paddy is also a sensitive dog with some history of being yelled
at so will do best in an adult home that is patient, consistent and
loving. Though he has some worries, he absolutely LOVES everyone he meets
and instantly is their friend so blossoms instantly in the right
situation. He is about 35 pounds and is not good with cats. He came
from a shelter in NJ. Paddy is being fostered in NJ
a 3 month old Border Collie found her way to the Farm and quickly found
her way to a great home with former adopters who had been patiently
waiting to add a rescue pup to their lives. Soon as they heard she was
here, they dropped everything and drove to meet her...she showed her
appreciation with puppy kisses. She'll have a really fun life, playing
with her BC friend and they quickly started into chase games and keep away
games only two young BC's could make up.. they were adorable to watch.
Kenna now lives in NJ and will have a life perfectly suited to her
MEGEN: A 9 week old Border Collie (possibly
mix), Megen is oriented to people and wants to be with you as much as
possible. She's also a strong little pup, showing her female tendencies
already to be fearless in telling other dogs she counts, too. Megen is
going to be the boss, like most girls. She is a toy girl, too, loving to
play. She is very smart and responsive soon as you call to her, she's
right there. Little Megen was in the wrong home and will happily now land
in the right place that can adore her.
& MARLEIGH found a life together! and we are thrilled they did!
Both of them played and played while in their foster home and soon as they
arrived at the Farm, it was clear, they made a marvelous pair, all curled
up together and constant friends. They found the perfect guardians who
love the breed and will be joining their senior friend, Charlie, to enjoy
lots of outdoor play including frisbee. They'll be the constant companion
to their FurDad whose business is at home so they'll surely get tons of
attention. They now live in NY.
MARLEIGH: A 9 week old Border Collie, Marleigh
is a sweet little guy who likes to follow other dogs and see where the
action is cause he loves to play. He's curious and outgoing and loves
attention, too. He's happy to be a follower and join in whatever is going
on around him, whether it's exploring or dog play. He's just starting to
show that BC eye and stalking another dog. Marleigh was in the wrong home
and needs just the right place that understands him.
A 1 year old Border Collie, Skip is a sweet guy with a sensitive side. He
responds well to people who give him some time to get his bearings, not
crowding him. He's thoughtful and observant and makes sense of what's
around him when in new situations, clearly a smart guy. He'll do best in
an adult home with BC savvy people since he can shut down easily. He loves
to play with other dogs, preferably female BC's and he also loves the
ball. He's a classic BC with energy and smarts but he's not overly active
so could enjoy a companionship life. Skip is about 40 pounds and good with
cats. Skip is in rescue because his person died and family members could
not keep him. He came from PA.
& SKIP found a great life together! They really hit it off
meeting at the Farm, running, chasing and wrestling, really good friends
and now they are together for life. We are certain these two will love
this life with all the attention since they are both so loving and
affectionate. They'll also have plenty of excitement as the constant
companion to their guardians who run their business at home and love
playing frisbee and hanging with their dogs. Lexie & Skip will enjoy
hikes on the thousands of acres of state land nearby as well as their very
own 8 acres to call their own! They now live in Massachusetts.
10 month old Border Collie
with ABCA papers, Lexie is all action. She loves to run and herd and play
frisbee, full of plenty of young BC enthusiasm and energy. She is very
responsive to whatever is asked of her and is an eager learner. Lexie is
attentive and smart and quickly observes what is going on around her to
make sense of it all. She can be a bit shy in new situations but her toys
are the way to her heart and she instantly sparks to play! She is great
with other dogs and really enjoys racing and chasing BC style. She is
about 35 pound and OK with dog savvy cats. She was relinquished to the Farm
due to a move from a home to an apartment that left Lexie less than happy.
She lived in one home in NJ, since a pup.
found a great life where she'll now have her own family with kids who
loved her as much as she loved them! It was an instant fit for a wonderful
life filled with love and fun. Lucy and the kids hung out in the adoption
office as if they'd been together forever, cuddled up side by side in
their own world, one that only kids and a great dog can create - it was
fabulous. to watch it all unfold. Lucy now lives in Massachusetts and will
surely be the center of attention which will make her one happy girl.
LUCY: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie
mix, Lucy is a loving, happy, good natured girl who is all about fun -
human or canine! She loves toys, she loves dogs and she loves to play.
Lucy is really sweet and makes you chuckle with her antics. She is high
energy though not in a herding, intense way, more in a playful way so
would be happiest with a canine friend who loves to wrestle and play. She
instigates chase me games and loves to roll around on the floor with her
buddies now, wrestling. Lucy is super food motivated so is easy to train
and loves to learn. She is a taller girl and about 45 pounds, not yet
tested on cats. She came from a PA shelter where she had been
adopted out and returned for too much energy.
found just the right place to heal his body and share his heart...he's
going to live with the vet's assistant where all his physical therapy work
has taken place! She's had him in her home to help accelerate his mobility
the past two weeks and of course, no surprise, she fell madly in love.
Tobin will be joining a wonderful family where he'll also have a canine
playmate who already adores him. His fun lovin' puppy nature brought the
playgirl out in her and she has been nurturing him - a perfect pairing!
Tobin is a very special boy who found a very special life where his needs
can be carefully managed so his body will continue improving. A very
heartfelt thanks to Kristin and Dana Browne at Thera-vet in Rochester NY
who provided his rehab care at no cost to rescue. And, another huge thanks
to Katie O'Brien, who opened her heart and home to Tobin in the early days
when crate rest was required. All the love she gave then continued with
everyone who met him...Tobin is a serious heart worker!
HOLIDAY STORY OF TRUE HOPE
Little 4 month
old Tobin, a BC mix pup, was spotted on a road in KY, dragging himself off
the road. He had been hit by a car. A good samaritan stopped and asked the
woman nearby who had other pups, if this was hers. She
replied "yes, but you can just drop him off somewhere, I don't want
him". This devastating
act of cruelty then linked so many people to meet one little pup who
needed them. Tobin's story is one of amazing hope. Thankfully, the
man scooped up Tobin, took him right to the vet and that was when he met
his first 'angel' : the man who saved his life.
then met Darci Turtur, his second 'angel', who volunteered to care
for him. The Lake Cumberland Animal Hospital was his third 'angel',
offering to treat him at no charge if he could find a rescue. Well,
that was enough for Darci to spring into action. She used to live in
upstate NY so knew GHF well and that's where Tobin found his next 'angel'.
Off to Upstate Veterinary Surgical Center in Syracuse with Dr. Paul
Bookbinder who reset his cast and splint, with incredible precision.
Tobin had numerous fractures that were so horrible, the future held
a dismal picture of likely amputation. But,
little Tobin is one unique spirit, full of life and spunk and
determination - you can just feel it when you meet him! And,
clearly, this little guy has a lot of support on his side! Within a
matter of days, he was in the perfect hands to help him heal. I t turned out
that all the fractures missed the growth plates by 1/4 to 1/8th of an
inch which means if his bones could knit together just right, he could
potentially have full bone growth and save the back legs. Surgery
was impossible due to the nature of the fractures, but with close
monitoring and restricted exercise, Tobin just might have legs to run and
play, like all other puppies. Only time would tell.
||His next 'angel'
was Darci's sister, Katie O'Brien, who lived right in Syracuse and agreed
to foster him in a quiet setting and take him for regular xray
November 29th, Tobin's been visiting Dr. Bookbinder for check-ins. And,
now, right before the holidays, we're so excited to share the great news
that Tobin is having AMAZING healing and will very likely have normal use
of those back legs! Everyone is astonished. The xrays were
devastating but somehow this little pup had just the right help at just
the right time to lead him to just the right healing!!!
has two more weeks of restriction and then he'll be on his way to physical
therapy. His muscles are totally atrophied so he needs special help.
excited that he has yet another 'angel' waiting - Kristin & Dana
Browne of Theravet Rehabilitation & Fitness in Rochester. Then, once he's
gained strength to use those back legs, Tobin will be able to race right
into the arms of someone who wants him forever!
you literally believe in angels or not, this story of one little pup,
barely weighing 8 pounds is stunning. All of us who have met him can
feel that he has a purpose for his life and he will surely find the person
to help carry that out! All of us at Glen Highland Farm, are very grateful
we've had a chance to be of help to Tobin. He has graced us with an
unforgettable presence. We'll update his
pictures and information as it unfolds into the New Year. If you'd like to
help with his care, please note your donation to LITTLE TOBIN. - Thank
TOBIN WILL NOT
BE AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION UNTIL HIS PHYSICAL THERAPY PROGRAM IS
COMPLETED WHICH IS LIKELY TO BE A MONTH OR MORE.
attracted the right guardians with her wonderful pictures on site and when
they heard she has shadow chasing problems, they were not deterred. In
fact, they were even more sure that they were the perfect people for her!
Their history included an OCD Border Collie who they adored no matter how
quirky he was so Roxy's tendencies were nothing new to them. They work
from home so can provide her with plenty to do plus all their love! She'll
be running each day with her FurMom plus enjoying plenty of hikes in
nearby parks daily and in the summer, she's off to Maine for swimming and
outdoor exploring which Roxy absolutely loves. They came to the Farm on
one of the snowiest, coldest days yet, just to meet Roxy and knew soon as
they'd spent time with her, that their intuition was right...Roxy was
their girl! She hopped into their car and headed home to CT.
ROXY: A 2 year old Border Collie, Roxy
is a smart, sweet girl who likes to be involved with people and enjoys
playing with other Border Collies as well. She is smart and loves to play
with toys. Roxy is also great off leash, a wonderful hiking partner and
loves car rides, too. She has some shadow chasing tendencies which need to
be addressed so that she can fully enjoy a great life. Roxy is about 35
lbs and needs dog savvy cats because she will chase them.
is going to have the best life that suits him - living in a great family
with two little girls to love him AND chasing geese! He's going to be with
his new FurDad every day and learn the ropes of geesework from his BC
mentor, Thomas, who has been by his side for 14 years. We are sure Reece,
now named Chase, will do just fine since this boy is fearless, fast and
focused and needs a job! Reece's new family had a crate all set in the car
with special signs "We love you Chase and big red hearts"! One
loved little pup will grow up one happy boy on 200 acres, helping his
FurDad and being the mascot of the club. He now lives in Rhode Island.
REECE: A 3 1/2 month old Border Collie
mix, Reece is a playful, focused, agile boy in love with toys. He is very
very smart and loves to race and chase with the other dogs, too. He's also
super friendly and cuddly, laying across your lap when it's time to relax.
There isn't a toy this boy doesn't like and he's eager to join in any
activity. A very attentive boy, he'll easily learn whatever is asked of
him. He came from a PA shelter given up by the guardian.
found the ideal place for her with GHF alum, Kevin (aka Rooney) and two
guardians who adore high energy BC's! She'll get a chance to play flyball,
go hiking and be totally challenged and clearly adored. They loved
watching these two make up all the games that only BC's can do together.
This pair had instant chemistry, racing, chasing, instigating each other
to play, play, play and it was non-stop, in the adoption office and
outside. These kindred spirits were thrilled to find each other! Desi
hopped into their car as if she knew she was the luckiest girl around and
her guardians felt exactly the same way. She now lives in NY.
A petite 1 year old Border Collie, Dessi is a smart girl who is alert,
observant and thinking all the time. She loves to join the action of other
BC's, and quickly joins in the fun of any herding games or jolly ball
play..she's one happy girl then! Dessi is sweet and loves attention though
a bit shy at first so needs to feel she can trust the people around her so
will benefit from another BC that is confident and outgoing. Like many
skittish BC's, Dessi watches the other dogs race up to say hello and then
she wants to join in, too. Dessi loves to hike off leash and has great
recall to return. She's got a lot of energy so another young BC gives her
plenty to do. Dessi will be placed with BC savvy guardians in an adult
home or with older kids. She is about 35 pounds and needs dog savvy
cats since she might chase. She was relinquished from NY guardians
who could not meet her needs properly.
finally found the right person and right situation just for her! Her new
FurMom just adored her subtle, sweet nature and knew she'd fit right into
her life perfectly. So, Kelie is now her constant companion and has canine
friends, too plus her own 100 acres for exploring on long walks.
This special girl will have a cozy, warm, loving life full of everything
she never had, even a barn full of fun little creatures to hunt down and
some sheep to call her own. Kelie waited a long time and she got it all!
She now lives in upstate NY. We're all incredibly happy to see this gentle
soul find her place in a great life.
petite 3 1/2 year old Border Collie, Kelie is a sweet girl who likes
people but also likes to do her 'job', in this case, the ball. She has
made up her own game of two-ball, where she bats one around as she has the
other one nearby. It's very cute. She is a gentle girl who gets
along with other dogs and also loves being with her person. She is
smart and attentive but not overly intense. Kelli would be happiest in
an adult home with another outgoing, confident dog since she can be
shy and a little worried meeting new people and takes her cue from another
dog, then comes right over for attention. She does best with easy going
male Border Collies as her buddy and does especially well with older dogs.
Kelie loves to bat her ball around, making up games as she discovers
how much fun toys really can be! Kelie is new to toy
experiences since she was chained outside at a farm (chained not far from
Stan, her Dad recently adopted) and she was also allowed to run loose
around the Farm. She never left, instead she considered the Farm
'her job', though it wasn't an ideal life. The day we met Kelie, it was
subzero weather and her 5 foot chain was pulled across packed down snow
and there was no water, only food thrown on the snow. She is
good with cats and about 35 lbs.
found the right guardians with the right canine friend to make his new
life, a wonderful one! He'll have 20 acres to enjoy as well as be the
constant companion to his new guardians. He loved his new BC friend,
playing instantly and was completely at ease with his FurMom and FurDad.
This boy will enjoy lots of freedom to run, chase balls and play frisbee,
all things he loves! He now lives in NY.
CHAMP: A 6 year old Border Collie,
Champ is a sweet guy who loves attention, giving it and getting it,
clearly a people dog. He's very comfortable in new situations and with
people he meets, a friendly boy. He loves to play with other dogs and he
loves toys, too. He's been around cats, ferrets, rabbits, chickens and
horses and done well with them, a little chasing but responsive when asked
to stop. He aims to please and is a classic mature BC, able to settle when
asked but excited to join in anything going on around him. He is about 45
pounds and best with dog savvy cats. He is being fostered just
outside the Philadelphia area of PA.
found a FurDad to call his own, someone who really wanted a full time
buddy to go everywhere with him - exactly what JR loves! JR happily
enjoyed his new 25 acre property too heading out back for ball play and
without competition from other dogs who wanted the ball, JR got it every
time! His new life will be full of love and lots to do, including
hanging out inside! No matter chained outdoor living for him...it's
all good now! He lives now far from our fosterer who helped JR find his
9 year old Border Collie, JR is a great guy who loves people, the ball and
dogs...he's got it all! He is super sweet too and enjoys attention from
anyone he gets a chance to meet. He is a good natured BC who likes to play
but isn't over the top like the youngsters. JR would love being the
constant companion to a person who understands the breed and of course,
loves to toss the jolly ball his way! He is sight impaired but easily sees
the jolly ball for lots of play, much like Nick, also at GHF. JR really
sticks with the person he's with and bonds quickly. He is good with cats
and about 45 pounds. He came from NY guardian who had used him
for breeding. JR has Progressive Retinal Atrophy which is a
genetic problem that will eventually cause blindness. The good news for JR
is that his PRA is advanced but not progressing quickly so it's possible
he'll keep the level of sight he has now, for many years. He has no night
vision but better day vision and clearly, sees well enough to enjoy a
great game of jolly ball!
finally found exactly what she was looking for - people who would fall in
love with her big, bright spirit and love her personality AND a place for
her to run and explore! Randi has 125 acres to call her own and will be
the constant companion to her guardians who know exactly what a Border
Collie needs. They have plans for tons of ball play, hiking and a 'go
everywhere' life, even to their upstate cabin to get away. She won their
hearts within minutes and this wonderfully radiant, happy go lucky girl is
now home!!! She lives in NY.
1 yr old Border Collie
with ABCA papers,
Randi is classic, high energy, ready to go, go, go! She would excel in
sports and will need an active guardian who loves to hike or can engage
her in play. She'd do best with another young BC since her energy needs
are high. Randi is super sweet, absolutely loves everyone, is eager to say
hello to new people and always willing to give affection. She is smart and
wants to learn and is at a great age, to try anything new. She is fearless
and can easily clear a fence to follow her fosterer wherever she is going.
Randi is about 40 pounds and best with dog savvy cats.
found a marvelous home with two guardians who came to the Farm just for
him! They had seen him on the site, read his story and felt they wanted to
provide a loving home for him. His new FurMom is a big time animal person
and she's already read the book we suggested; crawled around the house to
feel all the floor areas from his perspective and even lined up a
cardiologist for his future needs! But, it was his FurDad who was so drawn
to KC, he knew they had to hop in the car for a long drive to get him! KC
happily agreed that they were just right for him too as he trotted along
with them and their dog, Maggie, for a walk in the fields and then cuddled
up next to his FurDad for love. We are all incredibly happy for KC and for
his new life where he'll be their constant companion. He now lives in PA.
A very special thanks again to Linda Wood who fostered KC for 8 months and
was overjoyed with this wonderful moment, albeit bittersweet, just right
1 yr old Border Collie, KC is a sweet, happy, incredibly good natured
boy who comes the minute you call his name and loves to cuddle soon as he
arrives at your side. He grabs your heart with sweetness and joy,
instantly. The amazing thing is that KC is blind but that doesn't bother
him one bit. He is brave and excited about life, a joyous little guy.
He'll do great with another BC friend to guide him and be his 'mentor' so
will only be placed with another dog. KC also has a congenital heart
defect, with a small hole that unfortunately cannot be fixed. He is
showing no signs of problems but will need to be monitored to determine if
heart medication is necessary. A recent evaluation with the Cornell
cardiology department showed that KC's heart condition is similar to his
first test so he can be adopted now. We did do an abdominal ultrasound and
all of KC's organs are normal and working perfectly. KC's heart condition
is stable and he does not need medicine so can be an active young BC.
KC came to the Farm
from upstate NY, part of a 1st breeding. KC is 30 pounds and good with cats.
found a BC buddy who loves toys like he does and two guardians who really
understand what Border Collies like to do - play, play, play! He had a
blast in the fields with them and gave his own vote for this new home,
with a big lick and cuddle with his new FurMom, then back to the ball.
Oren will get to try chasing geese on the golf course where his FurDad
works, along side Gemma, who loves to do that job. Oren now lives in PA.
OREN: A 2 1/2 year old Border Collie, Oren is a ball boy, absolutely loving to catch and
retrieve with lots of focus. He's very agile and eager to engage with his
person in play and also hanging around. He loves attention and has a great
nature. He is sweet as can be and friendly with everyone, a very loving
boy. Of course, Oren is smart and attentive, and would be easy to teach
any activity. Oren loves other dogs and will play and play and play til
his ball comes out, and then he is all about retrieving! He is about 45
pounds and great with cats. He lived in a home with kids and did
beautifully but due to a divorce, he was dropped at a PA shelter that
works with the Farm. Oren is the brother to DOREE. In a unique twist of
fate, they have both come into rescue exactly at the same time though from
completely different situations.
absolutely loved his guardians, instantly, with a quick run up to say
hello and then lots of cuddles and even showing off his tricks! Ranger can
'high five' and 'high ten' with both paws which charmed them to no end.
This little guy with the big personality found the life he wanted, with
people who will be his constant companion and know exactly what he
likes...lots of love and outside time exploring, with them. He now lives
happily in NY.
4 year old male border collie, Ranger is a friendly, sweet guy who loves
to be with people and wants to be involved in whatever is going on. He is
super responsive to coming along wherever you go and happily trots off to
explore while he's with you, never going far from your side. Ranger
loves chase games and is quite a speedy little guy as he races around all
excited when you play with him. He is not, however, high energy and could
easily hang with his person during the day with some good walks for fun.
He is good with other BC's though so people focused, he'd be happiest as
the solo dog. Ranger would be a great companion, happy to be by your
side. He is 40lbs (petite) and not good with cats. His
original guardian died so he landed in rescue from PA. We think it might
have been a man since he really loves all the guys that work at the Farm.
was all set, waiting for a spot to come to the Farm but instead we were
able to send the adopter right to her home. When her new guardians met
her, they knew they wanted to add her to their lives! She needed someone
who understood the breed and could better meet her needs so she's happily
now settled in NJ.
MISTY: A 5 year old Border
Collie/Sheltie, Misty is a loving girl who says hello to everyone she
meets and shares her affectionate nature easily. She likes squeaky toys
and walks in the neighborhood but most of all, loves being with her person
wherever they go. She is smart and observant, a very easy going, good
natured companion. She has lived in one home since a pup but now needs a
new home due to a move. She was surrendered to the Farm from her PA
found the perfect family who absolutely love him for all his sweet
cuddling nature; his ball playing antics and his connection to them for
guidance in his life. He was exactly what they hoped to add to their lives
and he clearly loved them right back! And, Nick is joining new rescue, MISTY,
who came to meet them, too and fit so perfectly with him that she got
adopted, too. These two were like long lost friends who needed to live
together and now, will, forever! NICK & MISTY will share a wonderful
life as constant companions to their new guardians in PA, exploring their
yard, playing and cuddling all the time, too. We are so excited for Nick
and for Misty who have great hearts to share!
5 year old Border Collie, Nick is one special boy. He is smart, sweet and
super friendly and ready to jump into life, all four paws at once...he is
fearless and trusting which is so amazing considering he has impaired
vision. He can see a ball and absolutely loves the jolly ball which is
very easy for him to see yet he has to manage doorways and other obstacles
with a bit of caution. Yet, Nick, always gives it his all.. he so wants to
race up to you to say hello but he is naturally careful as he understands
his environment. He is one very smart BC and reads everything around him
very quickly and then easily brings the ball for another throw. Nick is
adorable and charming and everything that makes a Border Collie special.
He is great with other dogs, too and would benefit from one friend to give
him some comfort in negotiating things that are new to him. Nick is one of
the most affectionate boys in rescue, loving attention and eager to give a
kiss to say hello.. a really sweet dog who loves people. Our trip to
Cornell gave us the info we needed: Nick as PRA, Progressive Retinal
Atrophy which means he will go blind. Since his deterioration is advanced,
we would really love to find him a home NOW while he can still see and
learn where he lives! Another BC with this same diagnosis has maintained
his sight for years so that could happen with Nick.Nick
is about 40 pounds, fairly petite and is good with cats. He
was abandoned at a PA shelter who fortunately works with GHF.
found her forever home with GHF adopters who love the seniors and knew
this girl belonged with them! They were excited by her smiling face and
sweet, good nature and knew from all their experience adopting GHF
seniors, she would be a delight and she is! Star joins alum Judd and
another senior, Dexter, who didn't make the ride to get her cause of
course, seniors like hanging at home! Sweet Star so deserved this loving
life. She now lives in PA.
A 10 year old Border Collie,Star is a gracious, observant thinker who
takes in everything around with all the wordly wisdom of any mature BC!
She is brilliant, focused and in the middle of everything in her calm,
centered way. She's just a doll. Star is good with other dogs though they
are not as important as her person. She enjoys the companionship of being
the special girl that she definitely is and will cherish a new life with
someone who appreciates her. Star is not a demanding girl, she'd rather go
with the flow and enjoy the good things that come her way. She is fine
with cats and about 50 pounds. Star had a rough life, chained out since
she was a pup but you wouldn't know it from the great temperament this
girl has, just enjoying life however it comes to her. She's a very very
special Border Collie. She came to the Farm from PA when neighbors
stepped in to help give her the freedom she now enjoys.
