DOMINO landed exactly with guardians he needed who knew instantly he was their dog! As his new FurMom said, the tears in her eyes were instant and she just knew he had to come home with him - he was the one! He'll have a great yard and even bigger property for hiking trails and enjoying a great life where he is the center of attention. Domino showed his sweet nature as well as focused ball mania, both traits they loved! Real Border Collie lovers, he won their heart, stepping in to fill the hole of two beloved BC's who have now passed. He now lives in PA.

DOMINO: A 6 year old Border Collie, Domino is a blast - he is fun and focused and loves playing ball anytime, anywhere. He's a great, smart, very together BC who aims to please and in exchange for some fun time, he'll give you his heart. He's very adaptable and handles new things well, friendly with everyone. He is a classic, good- natured BC who bonds with a person quickly and enjoys an active lifestyle and also has a great recall to return when on hikes. Domino is fine with other dogs and has lived with 10 non - BC's but really enjoys one-on-one attention or being with someone who 'gets' who he is which is brilliant. He's got it all. Domino also loves to swim. He is about 50 pounds and won't hurt cats but will herd and chase so best with dog savvy cats. Domino lived in one home since a pup, bought from a well known VA breeder. His West VA guardians felt they could not meet the needs of a BC and surrendered him to the Farm. 



CARSON found a wonderful life with a family that will adore him. He'll enjoy being the constant companion to his FurDad as he goes with him to work. He checks on hundreds of acres of land where turf is grown so Carson will have his feet touching gorgeous grass all the time plus on his own 95 acres - plenty of room to run and explore! They loved him the minute they saw him on the site and were thrilled he could join their lives. He now lives in Rhode Island.

CARSON, an 11 mo old border collie, is a sweet energetic guy.  He was an only dog for his whole life, so is learning about dogs, and really enjoying having someone to play with.  He is not an intense herder and is just learning how much fun toys can be. Carson has lots of puppy energy to share, but is very food motivated and easily bonds to his person.  He is very responsive, is eager to please and has a personality that is making everyone smile in his foster world. He loves to go in the car and is a real snuggler.  In his old home, he rang a bell at the door to go outside.  He is approx 40lbs and is good with cats.  He came from a shelter in NJ that loves to work with us for all their border collies.   He is temporarily being fostered in South Jersey waiting for room at the Farm




RIO found a wonderful home with guardians who will nurture him and bring his happy secure side. They love the breed and knew he was exactly the dog for their lives. He happily overnighted at the Farm with them and began to show his wonderful nature quickly, charming them even more. Rio now lives in Massachusetts with plenty of acres to play and explore as well as chickens and ducks to keep an eye on. He'll be their constant companion which he will surely love.

RIO: A 2 year old Border Collie, Rio is a sweetheart. He's fun and likes to join in whatever is going on though he can be a little worried meeting new people thinking he's done something wrong.  He is a very loving boy but very submissive and needs reassurance. Rio loves to make up ball games, entertaining himself with a toss and catch and toss again...it's very cute to watch. He is very responsive to whatever is asked of him and happy to be with his person but he will only be placed in an adult home that is calm.  He's great off leash and loves to hike, too. Rio is smart and active but not overly intense, happy to be a companion. He is good with other dogs or could be a solo dog. He is 40 pounds and best with dog savvy cats. He came to the Farm from NJ where he was tried in geese chasing but was a better companion. 



YATES found the perfect combination of human and canine friendship to continue to build his trust in life being great!  He happily wagged his tail to say hello to his new guardians. They understood the nature of a shy dog since their girl was once that way and were able to put Yates right at ease!  This little guy went right into their car as if he knew he had landed right where he was destined to be.  We're all thrilled for this Texas boy to have a wonderful life ahead, where he is cherished and all his needs are met properly.  He now lives in VT.

YATES: A petite 2 year old Border Collie, Yates is the happiest BC around, enjoying hikes in the woods with his canine buddies and learning that life is great. He's blossomed into a sweet, playful, easy guy.  He's got a curious nature about everything that is going on around him and with help from his person, he's gained confidence to trust trying new things.  He still needs help from someone skilled to guide him but he's very willing to be brave in new situations, meeting people and going places . Yates goes up to new people expecting great things to come his way!  A good natured, sweet guy, his tail now never stops wagging! He is good with cats and about 35 pounds. He would be happiest with another young BC for play, wrestling and running games as well as a quieter adult home without a lot of chaos. He came from the Texas confiscation in April, having lived with 167 BC's so we're excited to see such great progress so quickly.



MILES, 3 yrs old, found himself in a shelter in MD, abandoned after only 4 months in his new home. He came to the shelter as a stray. Happy New Year to Miles because just as we pulled him from the shelter and tucked him in a temporary foster home in Md, someone wanted to meet him! So, we oversaw the match and off he went, right to a  perfect new life in MD. He has another young BC for lots of play and is the constant companion to his new FurMom. A good sign for Miles that life is on track! 


Sweet, wonderful KYLE found exactly the guardians and life that suits him...not only do they understand the jolly ball keep-away game, they will take him running for miles, using those long legs for exercise. Plus, he'll have a large property to explore and enjoy as well as many hands to love on him which he absolutely craves. Kyle won their hearts quickly with his comical nature, sweet disposition and focus for toys, which they enjoy! He now lives in NY, joining a GHF alum, Ziggy, who was adopted many years ago!

KYLE: A 3 year old Border Collie, Kyle is a super friendly boy who loves people. He also loves playing with toys of any kind, eager to play as much as you like. He is good natured and loves attention, a cuddly BC. Kyle is good with other dogs, eager to say hello but then gives them their space and settles nicely with a canine companion. He is focused but not overly intense. Kyle is a tall 45 pound boy and is good with cats. He was picked up running at large in PA and the guardian signed him over. Kyle had a severe flea infestation so lost a lot of hair but all that will grow back and he'll clearly be a gorgeous rough coat BC.


Sweet, gentle BEAU found a wonderful home with another BC friend who likes the ball just as much as he does! The two of them raced and retrieved, easily working out a rhythm to enjoy each other and their favorite game. His new guardians just loved his sweet nature as they got to know him in an overnight at the Farm and felt he'd fit their lives perfectly. Beau deserves this great life, now a healthy, happy guy rather than left to sadly to fend for himself. He now lives in NJ

BEAU: A 3 year old Border Collie, Beau's making the best of his party hat, chasing the ball perfectly! He's got a great spirit and loves to play. He had surgery on his tail and we'll soon have new pictures. He is a charming boy who loves people and attention. He's curious and good natured, not overly intense, more companion oriented. Beau came to rescue in pretty bad shape, as a stray from a NY shelter. He was severely underweight and a few things that TLC, good nutrition and proper vetting fixed. He's about 35 pounds and not yet tested on cats.



Sweet PARKER found a life that suits him fine - he'll be the constant companion to his new guardians, have a canine friend and enjoy plenty of ball time! He has lots of acres to call his own for long walks and exploration. This sweet boy will love all the attention and fun he's about to get, forever! He now lives in NY.

PARKER: A 4 year old Border Collie mix, Parker is a happy guy who loves everyone. A super affectionate boy, he has a great nature, completely friendly as if there would never be a stranger he could not befriend  - he's wonderful. He is ready to be your friend, instantly and so eager to please.  Parker is easy going and good natured though he sure loves the ball so needs a guardian who loves to exercise their dog with balls cause this boy is a great retriever. He'll play ball endlessly as long as it's thrown!  He is smart, focused and bonds quickly, clearly happy to be with his person. Parker fits with other dogs beautifully though could be happy as a solo dog if his person is active and into fun. He is good off leash and would enjoy hiking.   Parker has lived in one home since a pup but is being given up to the Farm due to a move to an apartment. He had been chained outside to a dog house but is happy to be back in a home, at the Farm. He will want to play with cats, not herd them but play, so probably best with cats who like dogs. Parker is about 38 pounds, a smaller bc mix.



Sweet BELLA found loving guardians who drove just to meet her! They had been looking at her picture for weeks and were drawn to her again and again. Her eyes and wonderful expression made them feel she would fit their lives perfectly. They love the breed and Bella will have tons of ball play and be their non-stop companion. She'll have her own yard for tons of fun plus get to keep track of the ducks, hens, rabbits and goat that live there, too! Bella will love that. She now lives in Rhode Island.

BELLA: An 8 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Bella is brilliant! She has all kinds of commands by hand signal and tunes right into her person instantly eager to please. This girl is super sweet and also super ball focused - she just loves to play! She even makes up her own 'two-ball' game, trying to simultaneously play with both. Bella is a very smart, very good natured BC and loves everyone she meets, happy to join her person for any activity they are doing. She also loves the car and is good with other dogs though could be very happy as the solo dog. She has lost a good deal of hearing at this point of her life (common for mature BC's) but still hears a whistle and turns on a dime to come right to you. She is about 40 pounds and good with cats. Bella's NY guardians are divorcing which meant a move to a condo, not the right situation for Bella. 



SEA, a 9 year old Border Collie from the Ohio group that recently came in, found her home instantly. One of our team who helped transport the dogs fell in love and Sea went right home to CT. She's having a blast playing ball, sleeping soundly in her great dog beds and is the constant companion to her new guardian!


MISS MOLLY found exactly the right home to suit her needs.... non-stop companionship, lots and lots of acreage to run and her own little girl who absolutely adores her! She'll be trying agility with her and her new FurMom, as well as lots of hiking and swimming, which Molly loves. She now lives in New Hampshire on 10 acres in a BC wonderland of plenty to do and plenty of love. They knew Molly was the one for them so all through the holidays, she was their screen saver and her picture was on the dashboard of the car as they drove the long trip to meet her!

MOLLY: A 9 month old Border Collie, Molly is all action! She loves to run and can cut and angle and turn on a dime, like most young BC's. She's got a great mind and is quickly showing her herding instinct now being with other BC's. She is fast and focused on all the movement, happy for the first time to be off a leash and run! Molly is very sweet and friendly and loves attention, happy to receive cuddles. She is clearly looking for a place to use her mind, body and emotions all in one package.  Molly is best with dog savvy cats who are used to being chased. She is about 40 pounds and typical in size for the breed. She was relinquished to the Farm by NY guardians who lived in an apartment and could not meet her needs. 



KATE, named after our Sweet Katie, is a sweet, curious, lively girl and she's found a home with one of our team. She's filling big paws since the lost of their GHF girl, Mia, but we're sure Kate will handle the task beautifully. A tiny girl with big presence! She now lives in PA where agility and fun will be part of her life. 


Little LOUIE is quite the character, full of spunk and curiosity but mostly, he's the supreme cuddler. He just wants to be in your lap or up at your neck for puppy kisses. He's named after our wonderful LUKE, nickname Louie, so we know that this little guy will fill some big shoes in his new life! Luke is the reason GHF even exists. Louie is heading home with adopters who were hoping for a pup to join their lives. He'll have a loving family, 15 acres and a female BC to enjoy, living in PA.


Little HAYLE was the last of the trio to find her place and that she did, step by step, figuring it all out. A fascinating little pup, she found the people who had been waiting for her and the perfect match was made. She'll be loved and cherished joining their home with her total joyful way. And, Hayle will get a chance to do therapy work, as well assist in dog training, in her FurMom's classes. We find this to be quite amazing since the Haley she was named after, was one of the greatest teachers to show people how dogs communicate. So, this 7 pound girl is on her way to joining the legacy of helping people really understand canines. We're excited to see her at Camp Border Collie for kids this summer and bet she'll be an amazing girl. She now lives in New Hampshire

HAYLE is a very focused girl looking for her mission. She's surely got a purpose and work to do! Probably no surprise since she is named after our Haley, who led our pack of 18 as the most benevolent leader, clearly telling the dogs all the rules. She taught us and every camper who visited GHF, all about canine language. So, little Miss Hayle is at the Farm, waiting for just the right home to show itself and meanwhile, she's learning about adult BC's and life with a big pack. This smart girl of 7 pounds is already showing her big presence, calmly watching everything around her, as it unfolds. She will only be placed in a BC savvy home with another BC. 



Sweet, shy SASHA found a wonderful home with patient guardians who adopted from the Farm many years ago. GHF Alum, Carr, will be the perfect mentor to this little girl who can follow his friendly lead, learning to blossom and trusting people fully. She also has a big 'sister', 16 year old! Torrey, another sweet Border Collie ( a little camera shy) to help her. It's the perfect combination for this young pup to find her way. Sasha now lives in Vermont and will be the constant companion to her new FurMom and Dad who just adored her.

SASHA: A petite 6 month old Border Collie/Aussie, Sasha is a lover and such a gentle, sweet soul. She quietly comes over to your side, politely asking to be petted and carefully nudges for more. She is a timid girl but so wants to have a person that is her own. Sasha is absolutely adorable. She really likes other dogs and will need a friend to help bolster her confident, then she plays a lot! Sasha will do best in a calm home where her guardians can help build her confidence. This kind girl gives you her whole heart in return for your attention and love and quietly asks for more. She is focused and curious but not overly hyper or intense like most BC's. She is about 35 pounds and good with cats. Sasha came to the Farm with her sister, Phoebe, from an accidental litter. Her PA guardian wanted her to have the best chance at a great life! 



ZARAH landed in a wonderful home with two GHF alums, one of whom used to be shy! Her new guardians knew they could help Zarah continue to blossom and they were so excited to meet her. Funny thing about this shy girl is she hopped right in their car, clearly voting for her new life. Lucky Zarah will have 40 acres to call her own as well as a great trails for tons of hiking. Zarah's new guardians have always had three Border Collies so knew they would love having a trio again. She now lives in Massachusetts.

ZARAH: A 1 yr old border collie, Zarah is a love-bug. She loves to be in your lap and will happily nudge her way there for attention whenever people are around. She is a gentle girl with people and a player with dogs. She loves to romp and chase.  While Zarah is a smart girl, she is also a shy dog who gets overwhelmed easily by new situations. She needs a simple life with her own yard, her person and a canine friend. She is not a candidate for a chaotic home setting or busy suburban area. Zarah is not overly intense or hyper just more playful and she loves having a canine buddy and will ONLY be placed with a young friend.  Having a dog friend helps her relax in her surroundings and be more comfortable. She does not enjoy car rides so really is content at home. She is about 35 pounds and good with cats.  Zarah was relinquished from NY with her littermates.



KIERA found people who understand her timid nature and love to help her continue to blossom. They drove 11 hours from Maine to meet just HER and soon as they did, it was clear why they came. She captured the heart of her new FurMom who wanted a friend to be with her at work and at home, constantly going with her and Kiera quickly showed that's what she wanted, too. Kiera will have canine buddies (one not pictured) and a large property to call her own for plenty of exploring and hikes. She spent the night with her new guardians and upon morning, they knew she had to head home with them.

KIERA: A petite 3 year old Border Collie, Kiera is a sweet, sensitive, gentle girl who loves attention. She is happy to be right by your side for affection and gazes right into your eyes to bond quickly. She is easy going, smart and likes to be with her person. Kiera also enjoys a great run to explore the outdoors, and since she's a fast runner, she's gorgeous to watch as she dashes across the field. She is very food oriented and easy to train. Kiera is not a hyper young BC, rather more of a companion, interested in going wherever you go. She is nervous around children and wants to hide so will be placed in an adult home. She is about 35 pounds and good with cats. She is from the NY area where she was left to live on her own, abandoned by a farmer who moved. Fortunately, a BC lover kindly took her in to help her find an appropriate life where she can be loved fully.




A very special thanks to Ashley Porter who helped these pups find GHF and lives that fit them properly!
FLY: 8 week old FLY found a life that is completely right for him...plenty of canine buddies and sports - he is going to do agility and enjoy lots of mental and physical stimulation in his new home! This little furball needs that and more! An amazing pup, he arrived at the Farm in time to meet his new guardians and wowed them with his confidence and ability to just join in anything and everything - he was fearless. A little boy ready to tug on any toy and play with any dog and say hello to any person - he was ready to go!! So, off FLY went to a new life in NJ where he's about to be stimulated and challenged! He came from VT where he and three recent BC pups came to rescue, were being sold outside in a petsmart parking lot. All great pups, part of an accidental liter where their guardian needed to find them homes fast cause she and her female BC were off to work, on her truck route. An amazing story for sure but what wonderful pups found their way to GHF and new lives! 


OLLY found a wonderful couple who think of their dogs as their kids so knew they could offer Olly a great life. He loves being the center of attention and that he will be, along with his BC Buddy, Scout. Lots of hikes and ball play for both these boys cause their FurMom and FurDad know exactly what every BC needs - lots to do! He now lives in Ct.

OLLY: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Olly is a sweet, gentle boy who loves to play! He plays with other dogs and toys, happy to enjoy the fun of any activity. Olly is very responsive to people and bonds quickly, happy to be with his person. He is smart and energetic though not overly intense as many young BC's. He is a really happy dog, a delight to be with and an affectionate boy, too. He is about 40 pounds and good with cats. Olly was surrendered to the farm due to financial issues forcing a move. He lived in one home since a pup, from NY. Ollie is a wonderful dog with the adoptive family but needs a quieter household with less strangers coming. 




Sweet HAYDON found a fabulous life suited perfectly to him...as the constant companion to his new FurMoms and living on a 74 acre farm to call his own. Haydon loves keeping track of all that goes on so he'll take this job to heart, joining his canine companions! Lots of fun ahead exploring and hiking and of course, most importantly, to Haydon, cuddling! This little lover won his new guardian's hearts with his incredible sweetness. Haydon now lives in NY.

HAYDON: A 1 year old Border Collie, Haydon is a delight. He's smart and sweet and gentle plus of course, full of energy! He wants to play, play, play. Like any young BC, he needs an outlet for his mind and body and in exchange, he'll give you his heart. This lover boy is a cuddler, loving to be with his person and then springs into action, for fun and play. He is great with other dogs and would love a BC friend. Haydon lived with a female BC but the guardians felt two young BC's were too much so he was relinquished to the Farm. He is fine with cats and about 35 pounds. Haydon is a good natured, curious boy who will easily enjoy a BC savvy home. He came to the Farm from PA. 



Sweet, gentle SCOUT found exactly the right family to care for her, with love and devotion. They came to meet this sweet girl based on her bio and pictures and soon as they spent minutes with her, it was clear she was going home with them! She won their hearts with her sweetness and that BC stalking as she got to experience their little dog, Geraldine. Scout was a perfect lady with just a little bit of herding and then lots of love for her new family! She now lives in NJ.

SCOUT: A 2 year old Border Collie, Scout is not only a gorgeous girl, she is a sweetheart. She is friendly and easy going meeting people. She can be a little timid but does want to say hi so overcomes that worry with some encouragement and then she is a love-bug, covering your with kisses. Scout is s sensitive BC so will do best with an adult home without a lot of chaos. She is a thinker so does best with someone who understands how a BC experiences the world. Once settled, she is just marvelous. She's gorgeous when she starts running in a field, happy to dash around and loves to explore. She is not a toy dog but more people focused so is a wonderful companion, not high energy but with the energy to join you in what you are doing. Scout is about 30 pounds and good with cats though can chase for fun so best with dog savvy cats. She has lived with NY guardians for the last year. She was found running on Interstate 81, dodging cars. Fortunately, they stopped. She was very thin and had porcupine quills in her mouth. Those days are over when she joined their home. However, toddlers are just too much for her so Scout was relinquished to the Farm to find a more appropriate home. 


SPIRIT found a wonderful couple who really understand herding dogs and those with special needs like Spirit. However, they always feel that these are the BC's that have so much to give that it's them, who benefit the most. Spirit spent the night with his new FurMom and FurDad as well as his BC buddy, Hershel and it went beautifully. He relaxed and played and cuddled, clearly a great fit for all. Sweet Spirit has so much to give and will surely learn more with the love about to be given to him. He now lives in Delaware. 

A special thanks to Ron Fazar who helped get Spirit started on the track of understanding how great life can be!

SPIRIT: A 2 year old Border Collie, Spirit is gorgeous and incredibly sweet, a very gentle BC.  He is not high energy but is enjoying the freedom of running that he finally has now so would love space to move and explore. He would also enjoy a BC friend.  Spirit is unclear what normal life is all about and how he is supposed to respond so will need some time to learn.  He came to GHF with another 2 year old, Brady, both chained out 24/7 without a lot of human involvement. He loves toys and will surely blossom. Spirit is deaf so will be trained properly so he can easily manage a new life.  He is 40 pounds and best with dog savvy cats.  He will do best with a hard fence.  He came from a NY guardian.  




KINNON found the perfect guardians and life that is exactly what works for him! His new FurMom and FurDad understand the special needs of sensitive dogs and are happy to make life simple and loving for their canine friends. He'll enjoy being their constant companion and have his furbuddy, Ben, to enjoy lots of running and playing. The two of them were wonderful together as they romped and chased and made up herding games - it was adorable to watch! Kinnon will have 115 acres to call his own and get to explore their Farm and join in all the activities with jobs created that suit him well. His new guardians were drawn to him and once they spent time together at the Farm, they knew he was the boy to join their family. He now lives in NY. Kinnon cuddled with his new FurDad and Mom as if they had been his guardians forever, a long, long way from the rough life in Texas!

KINNON: A 6 year old, Kinnon is outgoing and comfortable, happy to say hello to new people. He is really friendly once he knows you and happily wants to be your friend. He is quite the cuddler, loving being really close next to you, too.  Kinnon also loves toys- chasing balls and anything that squeaks -a happy guy eager to play!  Kinnon sometimes needs time when meeting a group of people so working with treats for his introductions, works well. He is very attentive to his person and very, very loving. Kinnon really likes other dogs and would do well with another BC friend or more.  He is also a great walking partner. Kinnon is about 40 pounds and good with cats.  He was part of a large group of dogs confiscated from a Texas 'breeder'.

Kinnon is really ready for his new life and will bond quickly to someone who will enjoy a friendly, good natured companion.  He'll need some guidance with new situations but is curious about life and doing really really well!



.
Mr. MICK found guardians who are wonderful and love this breed completely. He'll have a new friend, GHF alum, Honey, who happily said hello and hung out to get to know Mick. His new FurMom knew Honey needed a friend again since loosing their BC senior boy and no matter how many times she looked at the site, it was Mick who captured her attention. She felt drawn to him so they came and off he went to a new life, loved dearly, living in NY. We're so happy for this senior boy, full of charm and character.

MICK: An 11 year old Border Collie, Mick is a lover. He is super sweet and easy going, really content to be by your side. Smart as can be, he'll respond quickly to whatever is asked of him. He also has quite an 'eye' and is fun to watch as he stalks the other dogs, using his great herding skill. Mick would be thrilled to be with his person as a true companion, going wherever they go and enjoying the adventure of life together. He loves exploring outdoors and has a good recall, staying close by. Mick has lived with a large pack of BC's so can fit in with dogs easily though might enjoy less of a crowd, maybe a BC friend or two. He's a dream to live with and in very good health. We run a geriatric profile on all seniors which includes bloodwork, urinalysis and a thyroid panel and passed with flying colors. Mick is about 35 pounds and good with cats. He was relinquished to the Farm from an Ohio rescuer who had taken ill. 



LAZOR found a life that is tailored to him with 40 acres to explore and hike as well as guardians who are around all the time which he will love! He'll have a canine friend too, Missy so they can pal up together for companionship. Lazor's new guardians found this sweet, gentle boy to be a wonderful addition to their lives and were happy to open their hearts and homes to him. He's so special that they knew he would be a great friend. He now lives in NY.

LAZOR: A 10 year old Border Collie, Lazor is smart as a whip and ready to play ball as quick as you can throw it and loves attention. He's a classic BC full of spunk and sweet as can be. He is an amazing athlete and can outrun the 4 year old BC's here - he is fit and healthy and amazing to watch.  He, of course, settles beautifully by your side, happy to accompany you wherever you go. Lazor is great in the car and loves to go everywhere. He's a well-mannered, good natured boy who is very eager to please. Lazor is fine with other dogs and lived with a few, including a Border Collie, but he seems happiest with all the attention focused on him and he loves to love his person, too. Lazor has lived with kids of all ages and really enjoys them. He has great recall, eager to return to you while hiking or anywhere you may be, while exploring with him. Lazor originally came from a working farm in VT when the farm disbanded and has lived in one home the last seven years, in NY, on a chain when left alone. He was no longer wanted and surrendered to the Farm. He is fine with cats and 40 pounds. 





Special thanks to Katy Whipple for helping get Brite to safety.
Little BRITE was all set to travel from Maryland to the Farm, when an adopter wrote asking to meet her - they live 20 minutes from where she was being temporarily fostered! They had their application on file for an upcoming summer visit but happened to know one of the volunteers helping to transport Brite to the Farm so soon as they heard of her, they wanted to meet her! We are absolutely thrilled for Brite to be in a loving home with a BC buddy, her own boy to be her two-legged friend and guardians who adore the breed. Brite's light shone BRIGHT!

BRITE: A 3 1/2 month old Border Collie mix, Brite is a sweet girl who is full of energy and loves to play, of course! She is quite the cuddler, a really amazing little girl who is curious about everything in life and ready to enjoy it! She likes being with other dogs and loves being with her person. Brite is quite the player with other dogs so would be happiest with a canine buddy. She came to the Farm from Maryland where her needs could not be met properly.



Sweet PHOEBE found a great life on 42 acres with a BC buddy, her own pond and trails for hiking! And, even more than all that great stuff, she will have a job keeping track of all the llamas at the llama farm. She'll be checking on baby llamas and watching all the action in her new life, just like her big 'sister' who now oversees everything. We know Phoebe will love being the constant companion to her new FurMom and do well with all the fun of this active life. She now lives in NY.

PHOEBE: A petite 6 month old Border Collie/Aussie, Phoebe is the sweetest thing. She is a bit timid but so wants to be with her person that when she warms up, she's a cuddly girl, happy as can be. Phoebe likes to play with other dogs so we will place her with a more confident dog to help her blossom more easily. She is built more like a lean BC than a wider, bigger aussie. She is focused and curious but not overly hyper or intense like most BC's. She is about 35 pounds and good with cats. Phoebe came to the Farm with her sister, Sasha, from an accidental litter. Her PA guardian wanted her to have the best chance at a great life! 




POLO found the right guardians who knew the minute they saw him -he was the boy they wanted! His incredible brilliance and handsome looks really struck them! Polo will have a fabulous life as the constant companion to his new FurDad who will take him to work on all his jobs. Their last dog, GHF alum Molly, won everyone's hearts and they have been asking... where is your new dog? So, Polo has big paws to fill and we're sure he'll do it beautifully. Polo even has a home with a pond which he'll love since he's a water boy! He now lives in CT. Of course, he was in a hurry to go for the frisbee so his adoption picture needs a supplemental look at this gorgeous boy today!

POLO: A petite 1 1/2 yr old Border Collie, Polo is very smart, very focused and eager to bond with a person. He is people oriented first, then ready to do whatever is asked of him! He loves to learn and loves to run so would be a great hiking partner and fun for someone who wanted to teach him tricks or games. Polo is very athletic and can monkey over a five foot fence to visit dogs or follow his person so, he'll do best on an invisible fence. Polo is also a water boy, loving to play and swim endlessly. He's a big toy dog too and loves the challenge of anything new. He will chase cats so best with dog savvy cats. He is about 30 pounds.



PANDA found a wonderful life with GHF adopters who have Bennett (center) and knew they could offer a great life to her, too. She joins her canine friends where they have woods for walking and exploring as well as a nice yard for tons of ball play. Her new guardians love to throw the ball to their Border Collies! But, even better, she will be totally adored and cherished and go everywhere they go! Panda now lives in Massachusetts.

PANDA: A 7 year old Border Collie, Panda is a very happy, good natured, easy girl! She aims to please and loves to be with her  person, right by their side. She's also a ball nut, happy to play whenever you want to throw for her. Her idea of a good day is a day with ball tosses! Panda can be sensitive in chaotic situations but step by step, makes sense of everything and relies on her person as her friend. She's a wonderful companion. She loves to go for walks and is happy to say hello to people, a great ambassador for the BC breed. She's a happy girl who is going through a big change having lived in one home since she was 7 weeks old. A move from California landed her in a NYC apartment with city sounds and commotion which just didn't suit her. She is carrying a little bit of extra weight from the lack of having her own yard but will trim down to about 40 pounds. She is not yet tested on cats. 



SULLY found exactly the right person for him - someone with a sense of humor, lots of energy and great dogs - and he'll get to learn agility and be in the spotlight! Sully is a natural for the sport and will have plenty of time to excel, learning step by step, showing off his brilliance. He has a zest for life just like his new guardian! Sully now lives in PA and will be one busy, happy boy.

SULLY: A 2 year old Border Collie, Sully is a smart boy who enjoys the action around him, especially playing with another young BC. Sully is fast, focused and quite the wrestler and chaser, having a blast running around. He is also a sweet, friendly, loving guy who really enjoys being with his person. He's very responsive to what is asked of him and eager to please. He'll do best with a dog savvy guardian who really understands the mental challenge of having a very intelligent BC and can provide for what Sully needs. He is good natured and would love fitting into a home that understands his needs. Sully is about 45 pounds and is good with cats. He came to the Farm from upstate NY. 



LOREN found a wonderful home with understanding guardians who want to help her and know she'll share all her heart with them as they learn about life together. Her new FurDad was drawn to this wee girl and felt their current dog and their life would suit her well. Both caring people, Loren now has a team that will be with her forever, showing her that life is worth exploration. This brave little BC can rest in their love when she's afraid and venture out with help, playing, learning and growing. We are thrilled for her. She now lives in PA, a very long way away from that Texas horror she came from.

LOREN:  A petite 5 year old Border Collie, Loren is a beauty, so gorgeous with sweet eyes. She's a little thing and can easily squeeze into a small space to watch the world go by but she's curious, too.  Loren will come out to watch other dogs in her foster home, keeping track of what they are doing as well as herding them a bit but she tends to retreat back into her safe spot in the house, either a crate or somewhere else that feels comfortable.  She is one of the 167 dogs confiscated from a Texas 'breeder' so has a long way to go to trust that home life is completely ok.  Loren is doing great in taking the baby steps like walking well on a leash and playing with toys, learning to enjoy them by herself. She's also discovered that belly rubs feel good! She will require a very patient guardian who wants a sweet companion to enjoy their yard and their home, not a big life going lots of places.  Loren has traveled on vacation with her fosterers but it isn't something she needs to do all the time since her life makes more sense being in her home.  She does love traveling in the car though and likes to check out what's going on.  Loren is about 30 pounds and not yet tested on cats.

 


FINN, a fabulous 1 1/2 year old Border Collie popped up in the northeast needing a new home, just too much for a mother of young children. One of our intake team went to evaluate this great little guy and offered to foster him cause he fit with her pack so well. Of course, within hours and certainly by morning, this young BC was not leaving! Finn has joined two ghf alums and an aussie friend for tons of fun. He'll learn agility and have plenty of time for hiking, too. He now lives in Massachusetts and acts like he's lived there all his life.



NALA found the perfect guardian for her - someone who will focus on her every need and take her everywhere, a real companion day in and day out. He fell in love with her gorgeous blue eyes and then once he met her, was stunned at just how sweet this beautiful girl is, happy to have her join his life. He'd been hoping to meet this great girl for awhile, even lost some sleep the night before, wondering how the match would go so once he'd spent time at the Farm, he happily headed out with his new friend, a real treasure to enjoy. He was thrilled with her and she with him. We know Nala now known as Nolle, will be adored. She now lives in CT.

NALA: A 1 year old Border Collie mix, Nala is a sweet girl, super friendly and eager to say hello to everyone. She is not overly intense but she is young and active. She loves to stretch her legs and run so would do best with larger space to do so. She also loves to swim and run at the beach. She can have a canine friend, ideally a submissive male dog. Like most girls, Nala can be bossy but does love to wrestle and race and chase and she is a very physical player. Nala is smart and focused on her person and is a great companion. She is about 50 pounds and is good with cats. Nala was at a NY shelter since the home wasn't right for her. She was living in an apartment, crated all day. 



BART came into a foster situation and ended up finding his forever home! A sweet, gorgeous boy, Bart had some worries about meeting new people so needed to stay in a home setting to help him learn to really trust again. His FurDad and FurMom adored him and guided him, step by step, through the slow process of relearning behaviors. Almost two years have gone by and he's done beautifully but in the meantime, his new fosterers decided that life would be best for him with them. They love him and know how hard he's always trying to make good decisions, something they can help him with, forever. We are really thrilled for Bart who found a special place to call home where he'll be understood and adored. Many thanks to Heather and Bruce Groff.

BART: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie mix, Bart loves to play with other dogs and he's a rough and tumble player. He loves to run and play all the time so definitely needs a canine friend or two who are the same way.  Bart is also a lap dog, happy to give kisses, and hop on your lap to cuddle.  Bart does best with consistent routine so will do best in an adult home that provides leadership.  He is a young dog and needs confidence building with strangers  which has been going beautifully in his foster home. Bart is smart, learns quickly and loves to do well. He is best with no cats. Bart is trained on the invisible fence system.  He's now in the York PA area. He was a stray in the local shelter. He's about 50 pounds  




CLIPPER found guardians who really understand his BC nature and came prepared with a squeaky ball, rope toy and leopard squeaky lion - very very cute! Of course, Clipper thought that was just great and the game was on! He will have a wonderful life as the center of attention, adored for all that energy and brilliance. His new FurMom and FurDad teared up to have another beloved BC in their lives again. Clipper now lives in PA and hopped into the car as if he was their dog all his life.

CLIPPER: A 4 1/2 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Clipper is a doll. He's all about playing, playing, playing. The ball is his favorite toy of choice and he'll join in to retrieve anytime.

This good natured boy also likes other dogs and is good with cats, just curious. Clipper is 40 pounds and trained on the invisible fence. 



VIC found the perfect setting suited to him with not only a loving guardian, but a Farm to call his own! He now lives on 24 acres where his new FurMom grows lavender so he'll be her constant companion in the fields throughout the seasons. And, he'll help with all the chores including keeping an eye on the free-range chickens which Vic does without harm. He won her over with all his sweetness and charm, cuddling and gently following here out in the fields at the Farm. Vic is a little camera shy but happily loved all the attention on his adoption day and will surely be cherished forever. His mother came from Wales and now he has a guardian who is from Ireland, a perfect pairing! He now lives in NY.

VIC: A petite 5 year old Border Collie, Vic is a gentle boy who aims to please. He's super sweet and wants to be right by your side wherever you go. Vick is focused and attentive but not overly intense. He loves cuddles and being the center of attention but is also happy to relax easily when you're not there. He's a very soft BC so needs someone who understand that talking to him rather than heavy direction is just plenty so he can understand what's wanted. He's great off leash and comes instantly when called. He's also good with cats. Vic is about 35 pounds. He came to the Farm from a NY guardian who felt he would be happier living with less dogs. 





BAY: A petite 7 year old Border Collie, Bay is a sweetheart. She's gentle and easy going, quietly coming over to say hello and loving attention. She can be a bit shy but is really a friendly, curious girl who loves people. She's like your shadow once she knows you love her! Bay is very affectionate, more of a companion oriented BC. She hasn't had much experience with toys so is happy to just enjoy by your side. She enjoys the other BC's, especially her best buddy, Dinah, so could easily live with her.  She is about 35 pounds and good with cats. Her previous guardian rescued BC's in Ohio and became ill. 
Sweet DINAH & BAY found their forever home together where they will be adored companions to their new FurMom and Dad. They came a long distance to meet them, overnighting with them in the adoption RV and found these two to be enchanting friends. Bay gave all the cuddles that they could ask for, and then some and of course shy Dinah bravely asked for attention and learned that her new guardians could be trusted to love her. We're so happy for this very special duo to have a great life. They will enjoy hiking in a huge park nearby their home and lots of home time hanging in their own yard.

DINAH: A petite 5 1/2 year old Border Collie, Dinah is a funny girl who gets so excited, bouncing around, trying to figure out what the action is all about! She's an adorable, friendly little BC who would love to be challenged and learn new things. She can be timid at first so needs a patient person to gain her trust and help her feel confident. Once she trusts you, her real BC nature comes out. She has no real interest in toys yet but loves to go wherever you go, happy to race along. She's a lively character who will blossom beautifully. Dinah is about 30 pounds and best with dog savvy cats. Her previous guardian was an Ohio rescuer who became ill and gave up the dogs to GHF.



BLAZER found a wonderful life in his foster home because when the day came that someone wanted to meet him, his new FurMom said she just couldn't make the drive to hand him to anyone else. Having fostered many dogs, she knew this was a very special relationship way beyond another dog she wanted to help. It would have broken her heart to let him go. So, Blazer is getting a new collar to make his new life official! He now lives in upstate NY with two GHF alums.

BLAZER: An 11 year old Border Collie mix, Blazer is one happy, friendly, easy going guy! He loves every person he meets and happily says hello with a tail wag and gentle nudge. He loves his belly rubs and head scratches and also enjoys a great walk with his person, too. Blazer is happy to say hello to other dogs and enjoys running to explore with them. He's also a great traveler in the car.  He is one boy who could easily enjoy a quiet life or a busier one where he just fits right in.  He is good with cats and about 50 pounds. At GHF, we do a geriatric screen on all seniors which includes bloodwork, urinalysis and thryoid and his was normal so he's a healthy boy. He lived in one home since a puppy but due to financial problems, he needed to come to rescue. Blazer has been trained on the electric fence.




KIMA met the right person to call her own and headed off to a loving new life! Her new FurMom felt so drawn to her, that she drove all the way from Virginia to Vermont, braving a blizzard, just to meet this little girl. She had such a strong feeling that she could provide the love and safety Kima needed and we agreed. Kima now has a BC buddy too who she loved playing with and will have plenty of space to explore and lots of time to learn and continue her healing. Kima traveled from Texas as part of the huge confiscation of 167 BC's stuck in a horrible situation. She now has that way behind her as she settles in forever.

KIMA:  A petite 2 year old Border Collie, Kima is sweet girl who's trying to make sense of how her new life works now that she's in a home setting  with people who care about her. She certainly knows how to interact well with the dogs cause she loves to play. In fact, she's a rough player who really wrestles and plays chase games so would love a canine friend who enjoys that, too. She also loves to herd the other dogs in the house, happily using that BC mind!  Kima is taking longer to get comfortable with people which is perfectly normal due to her past. She lived with 167 Border Collies in a breeding situation in Texas so needs a very patient person to help her gain more trust about what people can mean in her new world.  She is now starting to come up to her fosterer for attention and will cock her head when she hears her name but she's not too comfortable yet with being touched.  She loves to hear she's a 'pretty girl', getting all excited with the attention and she's also starting to shadow her fosterers going wherever they go in the house. So, Kima will get there - it's just going to take time and lots of patient guidance. Kima is best with dog savvy cats since she herds them and is fascinated by what they are doing. She is only 35 pounds.



RAMSEY landed exactly where he needed to be - as part of a great trio and with former GHF alum, Blue. He absolutely loved this new pack and even more, his new guardians. Ramsey, now Rook, raced and chased and ran, eager to join his new buddies. He'll have 8 fenced acres to call his own to move that athletic body at high speed, which he just loves to do, like Blue, too. They are both fast and stunning to watch in action. This remarkable boy has it all now -tons of love and exercise and play! He now lives in Canada. His new FurMom and FurDad couldn't be happier - he was exactly what they were looking for!

RAMSEY: A 2 year old Border Collie, Ramsey is a friendly, good-natured guy who likes to say hello to everyone. He makes friends everywhere. He is super sweet, intelligent and eager to bond with people. He has no real interest in toys at this point but is happy to go wherever his person goes. He loves to play and herd other BC's and depending on the dog, he changes his style.  Some dogs he loves to wrestle with yet others he is a big herder.  He could easily have a BC friend or possibly be a solo dog but would need an active home. Ramsey settles beautifully as a companion BC and would love a life with someone around a lot. He is very affectionate.  He would be happiest with a large space to run since he can really cover territory when he runs.  He is about 45 pounds and is good with cats. Ramsey was living on a Farm Delaware and landed in the shelter after the guardians didn't want to manage his needs. He did not do well with the horses there.



NICK found the best life he could imagine - with two canine friends, one of which is his new BC girlfriend, Annabelle, that loves him! They played and played and raced and chased outside and inside the adoption office like two long lost friends - it was adorable to see! Both were tired out after their fun time together and ready to head home. Plus, he'll be the constant companion to his new FurMom and enjoy plenty of hikes and playing each day as well as plenty of car rides for dog travel trips! She knows exactly how this sweet boy likes to have fun, in the same style as her other dogs! Nick now lives in NY. We're thrilled for Nick who is now happier than ever, a long way off from this hard start so sick the first month coming into rescue. He'll clearly be adored forever now.

NICK: This gorgeous 2 yr old boy has a fabulous personality, a real people oriented Border Collie/Aussie mix.  He is super friendly, eager to say hello and ready to run, run, run.  He is loving the other BC friends, racing and chasing. Nick is so happy, a great natured dog.  He loves other dogs but doesn't like a dog to overpower him so does best with playful, softer dogs. He would be happiest with a canine friend since he has tons of play energy.  He is 50 pounds and a bit bigger structure than the average BC.  Nick was aptly named after St. Nicholas because it was Christmas Eve when volunteers kindly stepped in to transport him from the Long Island shelter where he was abandoned.  Nick is very curious about cats, his enthusiasm can be intimidating for a cat so probably best with dog savvy cats.




DOREE found the guardian who would understand her needs and personality in such a way that she could be appreciated for all her uniqueness. This quirky, fantastic girl waited a year for that one special person to arrive and that he did! Her new guardian found himself enamored with this brilliant BC and intrigued by her strong will and yet, sweet nature, so much so that he decided that sharing a life with her, would be fulfilling! He came to spend time with Doree a few times, getting to know her nature and how her mind worked. Once he spent enough time, he knew that the two of them could create magic together, bonding to create a human/canine partnership with deep meaning. He had been looking for another beloved canine to share his life, one with very special qualities and it was Doree who intrigued him. As we all know, this little powerhouse is super smart - we affectionately call her our 'rocket scientist' so knowing that someone will meet her halfway and unlock all her potential, is fantastic. All of us at GHF are absolutely thrilled for Doree and her new FurDad. She now lives in NY.'

DOREE: A petite 3 1/2 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Doree is a super smart girl who really loves to use her mind and will outsmart you if you are not up to the task of challenging her! She is brilliant. She loves balls and toys of any kind and will thrive in a situation with someone who enjoys teaching her all kinds of things, besides just playing ball. That is simple stuff for this smart BC. She's just learned about the frisbee and is so eager to try anything, a complete natural - focused and agile. She is also very sweet though she has a work ethic that makes her curious, observant and eager to see what's next. She'll do really well with a BC savvy guardian who love the bond that is so special with this breed who meet you mentally, physically and emotionally, all at once. Doree is best with dog savvy cats since she'll chase. She is trained on the invisible fence system. She is about 35 pounds. She was relinquished to the Farm from PA guardians who had a baby in the house and not as much time for Doree 



TUCKE landed in a life that suits him so well and with a new FurMom who knew he would be perfect for her! He's living on 170 acres, as her constant companion going wherever she goes - hiking, exploring, handling farm needs or traveling for work - he gets to go! She overnighted at the Farm with this cuddle bug and there was no turning back - he won her heart! We're so happy for this little guy who now lives in Vermont. She had a great experience with her last GHF dog and knows she's about to have another!

TUCKE: A petite 5 year old Border Collie, Tucke is a smart boy, ready to understand what you want and be by your side. He's an adorable little guy who is curious about everything in life. He's also got some eye to herd a bit but is happy to just hang with his person, too. He's a cuddler and good natured. Tucke is a small boy, about 35 pounds and OK with cats.  He was relinquished to the Farm from a NY guardian who felt he would enjoy a life with less dogs so he could be the focus. He's super sweet. 



Sometimes the right person comes along just as the right rescue dog arrives and that's exactly what happened for Dylan. He came to GHF, happy and eager to play ball and enjoy a chance to bond again with someone special. This very beloved BC needed a new man to call his own. Just days before, his about to be new guardian had written us looking for a great dog to add to his life. Turns out he was someone we knew from CT who knew us right as we were starting 'our dream' of rescuing Border Collies! He and Dylan were the perfect pairing! So, Dylan now has 55 acres to call his own plus a pond for swimming and tons of ball time as the non-stop companion to his new FurDad who thought he was just perfect! Dylan hopped into the truck as if he knew his life was back on track! We are thrilled for them both, now living in VT.

DYLAN: A 5 year old Border Collie, Dylan is a great guy, happy to be with you and ready to play ball, ball, ball! He likes to say hi and befriend everyone. He's fun and focused, a classic BC. Dylan was used to having his FurDad with him all day since he worked from home so he'll need a guardian who can devote time to him again. He does prefer hanging with men since he's been the center of attention in this home since a pup. Dylan's previous guardian had a change in his work situation which left him alone long periods which were not good so he was relinquished to the Farm. Dylan is about 50 pounds, a bit overweight due to recent inactivity. He is not yet tested on cats. He does best in an adult home without the chaos of kids. He came to the Farm from PA. 




Sweet, lovely SARA has patiently waited for the right person to find her and now she's ready for the big step into her new life. Her year in rescue has given her a great chance to learn about the real world and gain confidence in everything dogs get to do in life - explore the great outdoors; play with toys; go for walks; ride in the car and be totally adored by people. And, now, she has a wonderful FurMom who patiently understands that Sara needs help when nervous but overcomes scary things more quickly now, a happier girl trusting all the love and attention someone can give her. We are so happy for Sara to have her own person who can adore her forever, as we have all come to do, too. She'll no longer be left alone in a barn, handling thunderstorms and scary sounds, waiting for someone to care properly for her - she now has everything she needs. Her new guardian has kept Sara's picture on her computer telling her granddaughter that Sara was 'grandma's virtual dog' til now she becomes her real dog! She now lives in Rhode Island.

SARA: A 7 1/2 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Sara is an incredibly sweet girl who absolutely loves people. She is super friendly and wants to be your friend instantly. She is very well mannered and gentle and never imposes herself. She's a very polite girl who only asks for love and something to do WITH you. She is a marvelous companion though she comes from good working lines where she could easily have been herding sheep. However, the people who bought her never gave her the chance so Sara's relaxed into being a sweet girl who loves to join in day to day life. She loves toys and entertains herself with squeaky ones, tossing them in the air. Sara is best as a solo dog since that is what she's used to.  She is not comfortable with other dogs in her space. Sara lived in VT all her life and is now enjoying all the action at the Farm! She is 40lbs, typical in size for the breed and good with cats. We feel a hard fence would be better than an invisible fence since Sara is a soft dog who could become worried by the system.





NOOT found his forever home after a long drive from PA to the Farm to show him to an adopter. Through the process of showing this great boy, the adopter starting feeling that this BC already belonged to someone - the foster person! And while she would have loved to add him to her life and she herself had driven 5 hours from VT to meet him, she just felt it was the wrong thing to do! In her heart, she could tell that the pairing of man and dog had been made and Noot's happiness was already set in motion. So, two humans, both making very long car rides to help this wonderful BC find his home, did just that. Both are feeling the right decision was much more important than all the driving in the world. Noot is staying with his fosterer, living in the life that suits him perfectly, in PA. He is the constant companion to his new FurDad.

NOOT: An 9 yr old border collie with ABCA papers,  Noot (Nanoot) is a sweet guy that really loves to be in the middle of the fun!  He'll play ball if that's what you want to do or he'll enjoy a good hike, hanging with his person.  Noot is a sweet guy, friendly and easy going.  He loves attention and can also relax by himself.  He's great athletic, fast to catch any ball thrown and is also happy to push the soccer ball right up to your feet.  He has no problems with other dogs, but does not really interact with them, much more interested in his person and the ball.  Noot is great off leash and will stay with you on hikes and is very responsive to whatever is asked of him.  Turns out we had Noot's Dad here - Odie - not long ago!  So, we know why he's such a nice guy. He is about 45 pounds and Noot will chase cats but not hurt them so best with dog savvy cats. He was originally given up due to the death of his NJ guardian.




Sweet SADIE came to GHF last fall in a bind, needing a new home quickly when her guardian had to give up all her dogs. Since Sadie had lived in one home for the last eleven years, we knew she needed to be in a home as quickly as possible. A foster home was important for this girl so when one of our adopters answered our plea to help, off Sadie went. Now, many months later, this wonderful girl won't have to worry every again - she's found her place for the rest of her life. She's got a houseful of BC buddies, including a GHF alum, so life is good - lots of ball play with guardians who adore her. She now lives in NJ.

SADIE: A 13 year old Border Collie, Sadie is a doll, ready to say hello and ready to catch a ball, too! She is very easy going, confident and good natured, adjusting easily to a new situation. She is a smart girl who likes to be in the middle of the action and understand what's going on around her. She's not afraid to tell a pushy young dog to back off, but it's done nicely. Dogs she meets that have respect for this intelligent girl, do great! Sadie is very sweet and very loving. She is full of spunk and ready to join in ball play! She is used to living with a lot of dogs so very tolerant. She was surrendered to the Farm due to an unforeseen hardship with her PA guardian who has to give up all 9 of her dogs. Sadie is about 50 pounds ,carrying some extra weight. She is good with cats.



TAZ worked his magic on his foster family and of course, we have great news to report - he's found his home! This sweet guy now has gorgeous hair growing to prove he's healthy and we know he's happy just by the reports of all the ball play and constant cuddling! Taz loves to nudge everyone - adults and kids alike - for just one more toss and one more hug! We had a feeling this sweet boy just might stay put cause his charm is hard to resist! Taz now lives in Ct with two other GHF alums.

TAZ: An 11 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Taz is an easy- going, happy, wonderful boy who loves his ball and loves his people. He's really really sweet and very gentle. An affectionate boy, he fits in wherever he goes, enjoying other dogs or hanging with people. He has lived in one home since a pup and never wandered off the unfenced property. A super friendly BC, Taz is close to ready for adoption, just growing some hair back from a bad flea allergy.  Taz's previous NY guardian moved and could not take him along. He is good with cats.




RAINE: This little BC mix pup is coming to the states with a wonderful home waiting for him!!  We received this email from Saudi Arabia and knew we could help. With a quick check of the puppy file of adopters patiently waiting for rescue BC mix pups, the perfect home was his!  He'll be living on 27 acres in Maine with another canine friend and be the constant companion to his new guardians. We'll have pictures to share upon his arrival at the Boston airport!  This little overseas traveler is about to enjoy all the love he deserves, thanks to an incredible dog lover who contacted GHF.

"Hello -  I am an American living and working in Saudi Arabia.  A young border collie mix appeared in the garage of my house about 4 weeks ago during a sandstorm.  I've taken him in and have tried, unsuccessfully, to find him a home (and also put up flyers, hoping he was lost and might be claimed).  He is super sweet/wonderful and I want to find a good home for him - rather than turn him over to the Bahrain SPCA.  They do great work, but I worry, with the unstable political situation here and many expats leaving and abandoning their dogs, that he will become one of the many dogs stuck in the shelter.  

Anyway, I came across your website last night (was moved by the work you're doing and story about how you started it) and would really love it if you all could take him and find him a good home.  I would be willing to fly him to the U.S....  "




BRADLEY showed off all his charming nature including frisbee and ball antics and landed his new life quickly! This cute guy has such a puppy nature that his new FurMom and FurDad felt he'd fit their life perfectly. He'll have 11 acres to call his own for lots of outdoor exercise and a cozy, warm home life, cuddling with them inside. He'll have constant companionship with loving guardians who adore the breed. Bradley now lives in Massachusetts.

BRADLEY: A 6 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Bradley is an adorable guy with great enthusiasm for everything! He's a bit like an overgrown puppy, excited to meet other dogs and happy to say hello to everyone he meets. He is good natured and discovering all kinds of new things in life, being at the Farm. Bradley likes meeting other dogs but is used to be a solo dog.  He is curious and responds to attention eagerly though he has not had any formal training. Bradley is a frisbee nut, totally loving to play with the frisbee or balls! He will need a dog savvy guardian to help shape him to adjust to living in a home since he was chained outside in his previous life. The previous guardians felt having two BC's in the house was too much chaos so he became an outside dog during the day and in at night. Though he lived on 40 acres, he was only allowed to run when the guardians were with him,  so most of the time, he was restricted.  He comes to the whistle. The people had horses which he left alone, for the most part. Bradley will be placed with adults who can help him blossom. He is good with cats and good in the car. He came from NY. He is about 45 pounds. 




BRENNER landed right where he's supposed to be - with his new guardians! He'll be their constant companion, day in and day out, enjoying plenty of ball play and lots of walks. A perfect combination couldn't suit Brenner any better. They instantly fell in love with his sweet nature and playful puppy like antics eager to get the ball. But, it was all that attentive eye-gazing charm that only Brenner knows how to do, that won their hearts fully. He now lives in NY with a great yard to call his own and two people who adore him! We're really happy for this good natured boy to have landed after waiting almost a year for his forever home. Ironically, he wasn't even on their list to meet but once here, he sure seemed like he would fit perfectly with what they were hoping for and he most certainly, did!

BRENNER: A 7 year old Border Collie, Brenner is adorable, a really friendly, happy go lucky guy who lives for a ball throw! He is quite charming and makes you chuckle as he gets that twinkle in his eye waiting for his ball. Brenner is very, very sweet, too, happy to cuddle once he's had enough ball play! He is smart and loves to be with his person, side by side, wherever they go. He is very easy going and settles beautifully inside but once outside, is waiting for that ball toss. He would love leash walks and exploring, too. He is about 40 pounds and is not good with cats. He would be best as a solo dog. Brenner has an eyesight deficiency due to PRA, Progressive Retinal Atrophy, a genetic condition which changes the retinal function. Over time, this will worsen but there is no way to know the timing. Many BC's with PRA do not loose all of their vision but most have limited vision at night.  At this point, he gets around beautifully.  Brenner was part of a confiscation case in PA.




CHASE found a delightful life filled with everything any Border Collie could want - a loving guardian who is going to do lots of agility with him and loves to teach and train, stimulating a smart dog who needs to work....and a canine buddy who likes to herd and play just like him....AND a property filled with 2 ponds and tons of hiking cause while his home is on two acres, he has 2500 acres to call his own, too. Chase will blossom in this setting and we are sure to hear great things about this wonderful boy who can easily thrive with everything set in his path. He now lives happily in Vermont.

CHASE: A petite 10 month old Border Collie with papers, Chase lives up to his name - all action! He is fast and focused and can turn on a dime. He loves to run with other BC's and herd them as they race around, too. Chase would be an incredible sport dog with his size and focus and people orientation. He is super friendly, good natured and eager to say hello to everyone. Chase is smart as a whip and ready to learn whatever is in front of him, a very responsive boy. He's also quite the charmer - everyone who meets him, loves him. Chase likes to talk to you, also, with short little barks to get your attention and if you ask him what he wants, he'll answer! He would be a blast to have an extensive vocabulary of words upon which he could respond. Chase needs another young BC friend to handle his energy and/or an outlet for his mind with someone who understands this breed. He is a classic high energy young BC. Chase has not yet been tested with cats. He came to the Farm from NJ guardians who felt he was too much to handle with their 6 year old BC. He was a beloved companion to his FurDad, going everywhere with him. Chase loves the water and dashes in, almost as fast as on land!


Little AARON has big plans in his new life with his BC Buddy, Finn -they're going to make up tons of games, racing, chasing and wrestling around. These two hit it off instantly! His new guardians were thrilled to add this little pup to their lives, falling in love before they met him and even more so once they laid eyes on him. Quite the charmer, little Aaron made them chuckle! They happily headed out to New Hampshire to start a new journey with two BC buddies!

Sweet ARTIE found his new home with adopters who were patiently waiting to adopt two dogs from GHF - an adult and a pup - so when the puppies arrived, they came right away for Artie. His sweet eyes and wonderful face charmed them completely! Watching two grown adults become cooing, baby talking, giggling humans, was wonderful to see and Artie will surely have a life filled with plenty of love. He'll have their non-stop companionship and his own pond to enjoy, too! He now lives in upstate NY and will have another GHF friend joining him soon! 

Adorable ADIE found his new life with GHF alumn, Maddie who happily said hello quickly voting to be his big sis! He followed her around the adoption RV learning quickly just how fast a grown BC can move around - adorable to watch! And, then he settled in for lots of cuddles from his new kids and FurDad who made the trip from Massachusetts to bring him home! He'll enjoy 6 acres of great property for lots of playing ahead!!! Adie will surely be cherished.

Little ALEC happily cuddled with his new FurMom & FurDad, happy to be the center of attention. He showed off all his brilliance with toys and treats but again, enjoyed their lap and love most of all. This sweet boy will have 7 acres to call his own with plenty of space to explore which he loves. And, in a few months, they'll be back for a BC buddy cause they feel two Border Collies are happier together than one so Alec will have someone to race, chase and run in all that great property. He now lives in NY

Gorgeous Andi found his home with GHF alum, Allie, who is very camera shy wiggling to race off but happy as could be to have a BC buddy to call her own! Andi was fascinated with her as she was with him. His new guardians were absolutely thrilled to have Andi, now Bodie, join their family. They had been patiently waiting for a special pup to show up at GHF and soon as he did, they were top of the list! Andi now lives in NY, happily adored for the rest of his life. 



DIEGO found the right people who could give him everything he needs - a herding buddy, 12 acres of property to explore and enjoy AND tons of love, day in and day out. He'll be the constant companion to his new FurMom, which he already loved!  He'll also get lots of hikes with his new FurDad, some swimming in their pond and accompany him wherever he goes. And, that includes enjoying a gorgeous lakefront home, too!  Diego gave us his nod of approval, with that soulful look of his, as he hopped into the car headed off to a great new life. He now lives in upstate NY.  

DIEGO: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Diego is a very smart, attentive boy who is great with people and very eager to please. He loves attention and is super affectionate. Diego is also quite a herder, with a keen interest in livestock however he's too strong on the sheep to work on a farm so will be placed in an active home. He has wonderful recall for hiking and loves other dogs, actively herding them and engaged in everything going on around him. Diego will be placed in a more rural setting since that is what he's used to and can easily jump fences.  He is about 45 pounds and good with cats. Diego came to the Farm from a MD guardian with 500 sheep who could not manage an untrained BC. 



DAISY charmed her new guardians instantly with her sweetness and beauty and athletic nature! Her new FurMom will be with her all the time since she works from home and her son plans to keep Daisy busy with lots of hiking. They live on a lake so Daisy will have plenty of chances for swimming, too! We're so happy for this wonderful girl who can now have 26 acres to call her own and people who will love her forever. She now lives in NY.

DAISY: A 7y old border collie, Daisy is a sweet girl that just loves all people and will follow you around everywhere. She also loves to play with toys of all kinds and will retrieve frisbees and balls.  She  is always ready to go and she is great off leash, a great hiker.  Daisy has excellent recall and loves to swim. She is an active girl and wants to be a constant companion to her person. She has conversational commands and knows them all: "let's go get the mail", "I'll be right back", "where's the kids?, "stay with me" and comes to her name easily. She has been raised around cattle and horses on a 146 acre property and done just fine with both.  Her previous PA guardians are older now and feel they don't have the energy or time to give her what she needs. She will chase cats but is good with them.  Daisy will be placed on another rural property since she's used to that. She is about 50 pounds.




ROSS found the absolutely perfect home for him with two little buddies who play just like him! And, he has a loving guardian who just adored him and was thrilled to find a little mini BC boy to add to her life! He now lives in NY and will be her constant companion.

ROSS: A 10 month old Border Collie mix, Ross is the tiniest little guy, only 10 pounds and full of personality. He has a big hello to everyone and loves to join in the fun with other dogs. He was so excited to meet 25 pound Cricket, a farm dog, and ran as fast as possible, making up games with her. He's a little more cautious with normal size BC's, but a pretty happy guy nonetheless. Ross is a pocket size BC mix pup, happy to be in your arms and check out the world. He is interested in toys and curious about everything. Ross is fine with cats, a bit afraid. At only 10 pounds, he's smaller than many cats himself. He was a stray in CT picked up by animal control who contacted us for help. This little guy walks on his hind legs , arms down, standing straight as an arrow with his little front legs straight down at his sides.. a great trick dog! He is interested in cats and will chase but not hurt them.
