He'll be hanging with a GHF alum, too so have plenty of herding fun as well as cuddling which he absolutely loves. He now lives in NJ.

TROY: A 5 month old Border Collie, Troy is all energy, running and playing and racing with all the BC's. He clearly is having a blast at the Farm. Troy is super sweet, instantly affectionate and bonds closely with his person. He gets a little nervous with strangers so needs a patient guardian to help build his confidence with this.  This outgoing boy has all the great traits of a young BC but seems more easy going, not as intensely focused to herd everything that moves. He just wants to play. He is smart and very responsive to whatever is asked of him,  clearly focused on what to DO! Troy is from upstate NY, living in a home with guardians who could not meet his needs. He is 35 pounds and is good with cats. 



LEX: 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. 
Special thanks to Tim Toomey who kindly transported Lex into rescue!


DALTON found a new life that suits him in exactly the way he needs - he'll be the constant companion to his new FurDad, with him day in and day out, enjoying BC games together and with someone who understands the quirks of the breed. (including being camera shy!) He warmed right up to his new FurDad and clearly voted, too as well as his new guardian who fell in love with this sweet guy. After lots of toy play and time to get comfortable, Dalton was next to him, giving kisses and happy as could be to head home! He now lives in NY.

DALTON: A 2 year old Border Collie, Dalton is a people oriented dog who really loves companionship. He sits near you instantly for belly scratches and happily offers his affection right back. He can be a bit skittish with new people so needs time to warm up and then he shows up his good nature. He is smart and responsive and absolutely loves to play ball, too.  Dalton is good with other dogs but seeks out the people more than the dogs. He is camera shy so his pictures only capture a bit of his true personality. He is about 50 pounds and is not good with cats. He lived with a retired couple in NY and spent a lot of time tied out since they had no fence. He does best in an adult home rather than in the chaos of toddlers. 


KOOPER found a fabulous life with two canine friends and a furMom who is around all the time, which he will love! He'll get to explore and enjoy 170 acres with lots of running and walking, too as he is the constant companion to his new FurMom. She loved him and understood his shy nature and has all the patience in the world to help him gain confidence about life. He'll have a canine buddy too and plenty to do!! He lives in PA, near where he was fostered.

KOOPER: A 1 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Kooper is a great little guy who is learning that life is going to work out just fine. He's watching other BC's in his foster home and so curious about them, he's really relaxing and having fun. Kooper is a shy guy but gaining confidence week by week.  Kooper is a smart, responsive BC and like most young dogs, he wants to play. He'll only be placed with another easy going BC who is soft and playful with him since he was living with another BC who beat up on him.

He's being fostered in the Pittsburgh area for awhile so he can benefit from home time. 




DALLAS found a great home with GHF alumns who love to chase and race and play like he does! He'll have a blast playing in his new yard and enjoying tons of attention.

He now lives in NY, adored forever.

He loves to race and chase around the fields and make up games with his canine buddies. He is very sweet and responsive to anyone who he meets, a good natured personality. He is taller like a Golden and a bit mouthy like young dogs are, so best with older kids or an adult home. He is very athletic and light on his feet, graceful to watch as he moves. Dallas is about 40 pounds and good with cats. He came to us from a PA shelter who adopted him out and the people returned him for too much energy, very common in BC's, even mixes. Dallas is a delightful guy, active but much easier than a purebred Border Collie. 




KEAGAN 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.

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 poundsKeagan was a stray in PA and lived for a month with someone who wanted to keep him but couldn't for landlord reasons.

BUDDY found a great home with six acres he can call his own and two guardians who love the ball playing as much as he does! And, more importantly, loved him with his sweet and friendly nature.

He is very friendly and loves affection. He's a big ball dog but not as intense as a younger BC so will enjoy hanging with you as well as playing. Buddy is great with other dogs and will do best with another BC friend, female or male, he's good with both.  He is smart and focused but not overly wound up. He's at that great age when he can settle and enjoy whatever you want to do with him. Buddy is good with cats but will chase in play so best with dog savvy cats.  He is about 40 pounds. Buddy would be happiest in an adult home with someone focused on his needs. Both Buddy and Rebel came to the Farm when their PA guardian entered a nursing home.

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 is all about trying to understand what you have to say or want. His new FurMom got a chance to see his mind at work as he did the 'cup game', sorting out which cup had the hidden ball.

A 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. 

Tobin 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 appointments.

So, since 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!!!

Tobin 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.

And, we're 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! 

Whether 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 you.

TOBIN WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION UNTIL HIS PHYSICAL THERAPY PROGRAM IS COMPLETED WHICH IS LIKELY TO BE A MONTH OR MORE. 


ROXY 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.



REECE 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.

MADDIE: A 7 month old Border Collie, Maddie is a sweet, gentle, loving girl who starts out on the shy side and then ends up following you wherever you go.

Maddie is easy going and could be a wonderful companion, not needing a super active situation but happy with another dog friend for fun! Since she can be skittish at times, we want to place her with another canine friend, rather than alone.  She'll need a patient home to continue building her confidence. She is about 30 pounds and is good with cats. She came to the Farm from a NY guardian upstate.



DESI 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.

DESSI: 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. 




KELIE 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.

KELIE:  A 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.


REBEL found the family he had been waiting for, with enough kids to throw the ball forever and enough laps for lovin'! He was thrilled to meet them and so happy to hop in the car to head home to CT. His new guardians felt he was the perfect focused BC who fit their life and could also enjoy all the fun places they go, as a great companion. His new canine friend, Claudio, gave his vote of approval too! Rebel will be the center of attention in a houseful in a doggie paradise!

REBEL: A 5 year old Border Collie, Rebel is very outgoing, friendly with everyone instantly and is all about action. He is a mature dog but has tons of energy for ball and could learn anything easily. He is super focused and eager to connect with anyone who will do something with him. Rebel loves ball play and does need an active life with someone who really loves the breed and wants a fun, active BC.  He is good with other dogs but could easily live by himself, too. He would be a great family oriented BC with kids who love to play.   Rebel will not a harm a cat but does growl when they are near so is best in a non-cat home or with a savvy cat.  He is petite, about 34 pounds.Both Rebel and Buddy came to the Farm when their PA guardian entered a nursing home. They lived together in one home but tend to squabble so will be separated so they are happier.



CHAMP 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. 



GEO found a wonderful home on 130 acres with plenty to do and a FurMom who's around most of the time, to do it with! He absolutely loved her and got along just fine with the canine boss, Jackie, who thought he was the one for her, too. Geo will have goats and a horse to check out and get a chance to even try agility but mostly, he'll be the beloved friend his new guardian was looking for! He now lives in PA.

GEO: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Geo (George) loves to play with other Border Collies and comes into full action when he gets the chance. He's a young BC with curiosity for everything around him, including toys which he'll enjoy for awhile too. He is very timid at first with new people so will do best with another BC friend and people who understand the breed. He's a sweetheart with a gentle nature. His favorite thing in life is wrestling, chasing and racing with the other young dogs at the Farm but he also enjoys cuddling with the person he knows and trusts. He is about 40 pound and best with dog savvy cats. 




JR 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 new life!

JR: A 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! 



RANDI 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.

RANDI: A 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. 




KC 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 for KC!

KC: An 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. 



OREN 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. 




RANGER 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.

RANGER: A 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.


SASHA 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 guardians.
NICK 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!

NICK: A 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 catsHe was abandoned at a PA shelter who fortunately works with  GHF.





REBEL is going to enjoy a life that suits him perfectly - as the only dog! He'll get all the ball playing and attention which he can handle and in return, he'll go to work with his FurMom as well as accompany her on lots of hikes which he will love. Rebel charmed her with his great nature and easily won her heart. He now lives in Ct in a home he can call his OWN!

REBEL: A 5 year old Border Collie, Rebel is very outgoing, friendly with everyone instantly and is all about action. He is super focused and eager to connect with anyone who will do something with him. Rebel loves ball play and does need an active life with someone who really loves the breed and wants a fun, active BC. He is super sweet and loves to cuddle, too.  He would be a great family oriented BC with kids who love to play. Rebel is great off leash and won't leave his person's side.   Rebel will not a harm a cat but does growl when they are near so is best in a non-cat home or with a savvy cat.  He is petite, about 35 pounds.  Rebel came to the Farm when the PA guardian entered a nursing home. 



SHAY found exactly what she wanted - a person to adore her, play with her and be with her all the time! She happily hopped up next to her for cuddles and ran around the adoption office playing with toys like she knew it was her day to go home! She will be the constant companion to her new FurMom who absolutely adored her and was thrilled to have her come home with her to NY.

SHAY: A 2 year old Border Collie, Shay is a loving, gentle girl who really wants to be by your side. She is totally people focused and eager to bond.

Shay also loves to give her paw even when asked for the camera! She is good with other dogs but doesn't like bigger dogs that well who intimidate her or pushy BC's who get in her space. She does well with nice, confident males who she can hang with and enjoy exploring. Shay is about 40 pounds and  is best with dog savvy cats cause she'll bark at them though not hurt them. She was a stray in PA. 


STAR 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.

STAR: 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.
