Pup SEAMUS found a great new life at 4 months old where he’s joined a
pack of canines he loves, including a GHF alum. He went to foster care and
he’s never leaving, just winning their hearts with his sweet, smart nature!
Thanks to a very kind neighbor, Seamus was pulled out of a rough situation
where he was alone tied outside all day with no proper care. That’s not the
case anymore! He will be cherished and adored!!
Lovely little BELLA will have plenty of fun on 110 acres to
call her own but more importantly, she’ll have tons of love, too. Her
new guardians were smitten the minute they saw her and couldn’t wait to
enjoy a life with this playful girl. She shared her Bella charm and off
she went to a new life. She’ll be with her FurDad 24/7, going everywhere
he goes as well as hiking with her new FurMom who has been waiting for
an athletic canine pal!
BELLA: A petite 3
1/2 year old Border Collie, Bella is a live wire, just an adorable
sweetheart full of spunk and ready to GO! She loves toys of any kind and
will happily race around, playing non-stop if you want to join in.
Otherwise, she’ll make up her own games, entertaining herself. She is a
friendly, loving girl who thrives on attention. Bella is a classic BC in
her focus and interest in having ‘work’ so she’ll need a savvy BC
guardian who knows how to keep her happy. She settles nicely inside and
loves being with people but she loves being busy just as much. Since
Bella is a big time herder of dogs, we’d like her to live as a solo dog
which makes her happiest and it’s easier on other dogs. She lived in one
home since a pup, originally coming from a Farm. She is good with cats
and about 30 pounds.
Sweet, wonderful SAM found a new life with a
loving guardian who will be with him 24/7 and accompany her as she walks
the preservation land trails as part of her volunteer efforts. Sam will
love that! Soon as they met, she had a special toy just for him and
seeing him so excited, made her thrilled! He was exactly the dog she
wanted to join her life. They’ll be hanging together with him curled up
on the couch after long walks…what could be better
A 5 year old Border Collie, Sam is a cool guy, happy as can be and the
most good-natured guy to land at GHF in quite awhile! He is super
friendly, sweet and loves everyone he meets, literally everyone. We
don’t think Sam has ever met a stranger, as the saying goes! He is a
moderate energy guy, happy to play some ball games and happy to cuddle
on the couch. Sam was a stray in a NJ shelter which thankfully reached
out to GHF to help. We’re happy to help Sam return to good health and
even more happiness. He is about 40 pounds and good with dog savvy cats
since he is curious but no interest in harming them. from his foster mom:
As Sam's foster mom I can honestly say he
has been the easiest boy ! He just loves life ! He will follow you
around to check out what your doing or just hang out sleeping In His bed
he loves car rides, walks and playing ball and he is definitely full of
kisses . He likes other dogs too but is very happy to be with his
person. He is gonna make someone a very special addition to their family
Happy New Year and happy new life to Roo!!!
She’s now going to be the constant companion to her new FurDad who had
been patiently waiting to adopt another GHF rescue dog! He wanted a
friendly, good natured, easy going Border Collie to join him again after
the loss of GHF alum, Max so when he got the call about Roo, he quickly
came to meet her. Within minutes of seeing this sweet girl, he was ready
to go home, with her!!! He and his daughter headed out on New Year’s Day
to celebrate his new friendship! Roo quickly agreed he was the best!
ROO: An 8 year old Border Collie, Roo is a
lovely girl with a super sweet nature, really happy to say hello with a
gentle greeting. She is also quite the toy girl, really loving those
squeaky toys, acting like a young pup! Roo is a smart, focused,
observant girl who would be thrilled to be with her person wherever they
go. Her easy going nature is a pleasure to enjoy. She is best with dog
savvy cats since she will chase them, not hurt them though. Roo is a bit
overweight but will knock that off with more exercise here at GHF. She
was surrendered to GHF from a dog lover that knows the Farm could help
find her a home with more time for her.
KYLE found his new home in a very interesting way. One of our
previous adopters visited various dogs with her grand-daughter and it was
Kyle who sparked a special connection at the Farm. A month later, he was in
need of a foster home to help with some of his emotional worries and they
met again. But, it was when the same grand-daughter came to visit at their
home a week later, that it all clicked… Kyle had already found his home and
those two clearly knew it! Just took a bit of time for all the pieces to
come together and now this boy is set for life. He joins three GHF alums for
a life of BC fun and most importantly, a reunion that was meant to be!
6 month old Border Collie, Kyle is a
stunning boy with a great mind and plenty of energy, too. He is eager to
learn and will only be placed with a BC savvy guardian who will engage in
activities with him. He so wants a human connection, loving to be right by
your side. He is a super cuddly guy too, quite affectionate and good
natured. He comes from working parents who chase geese but Kyle was passed
to GHF when the breeder felt there wasn’t enough time to teach him with
winter coming. He is extremely sweet and blossoming here at GHF where he’s
getting much more attention. We’ll update his bio as he develops. Kyle is
about 30 pounds and not good with cats. He and his brother, Tighe, were both
surrendered to GHF.
Sweet SYBBIE found exactly the right situation
for her to blossom further, with former GHF adopters who have a
sensitivity to the gentle soul that she is and will help her flourish.
She will be their companion 24/7, going everywhere they go, including to
Georgia for a beach time break from the cold NY winter! Sybbie will be
on the ocean playing there and at home, enjoy a great country home,
complete with a pond which she loves! We’re so happy this lovely girl
found such wonderful guardians to adore her.
: A petite 1 yr old Border Collie, Sybbie is absolutely stunning in
person and is not only gorgeous, she’s so, so sweet. A gentle soul, she
is a classic ‘soft’ BC who needs to understand what’s going on around
her before she jumps in. When she does jump in, it’s right into your lap
for tons of kisses. Sybbie is very smart and also a big toy girl. She
loves balls of any kind, especially playing soccer and is quite a good
frisbee girl too. She’s fast, focused and full of energy to play! Sybbie
is also a great hiking friend and loves to swim, quite the athlete. She
will only be placed in a BC savvy home with another male Border Collie
who is on the submissive side. Sybbie is fine with cats and about 35
pounds. She was relinquished directly to GHF from guardians in Maine who
felt she deserved a life more oriented to her BC nature. They took her
as a pup from an inappropriate home. Sybbie is used to rural living so
we want to find a more rural setting for her again.
Little JEB won the heart of his new FurMom,
a former GHF adopter, within seconds of holding him in her arms! His
lovely nature is so obvious soon as he meets a person and he is
exactly what she had been waiting to find - a heart worker! Jeb, now
Wink, will be trained as a therapy dog with children and adults in
need, just like his new caninepal, Bodhi. He may even get a chance
to work in cancer and diabetes detection, an evolving field where
Border Collies are working. This pup is one special sweetheart, like
an old soul in a puppy body, happy to lay in your arms and connect
deeply with you, so we know he’s going to work his magic to heal
many hearts ahead.
JEB, A curious, confident and athletic
boy, he loves his toys and loves to explore! He’s very outgoing.
SAM found a great new life with former adopters and GHF alum, Jodi,
who is a play girl just like he is a play boy! The two of them mixed it up
like puppies, chasing and racing and having a blast. His new guardians
overnighted having time fall in love even more with this sweet boy and
happily headed out to have more fun! Sam will have plenty of time on the
beach since he now lives near the water! We can’t wait to see the pictures!
Miss Jodi loves those waves and we know Sam will, too!
SAM: A 10 month old Border Collie, Sam is full of
spunk and fun, loving life! He is a chaser and racer and quite a player with
another BC so would be happiest with a pal. He also loves people and is a
very affectionate guy, happy to cuddle and be with you. Sam is friendly, no
one is a stranger to him, just a big hello and let’s go! He is a high energy
boy and will need an outlet with a friend and and active, engaged guardians.
Sam lived on a dairy farm but was never trained to work so he’s clearly all
about having fun which is just fine. His guardians had no time to train him
so he was tied out, living outside. Sam is happy to be inside, curled up on
your lap now! He is not yet tested on cats.
COOPER found exactly the right guardians who will focus
on him 24/7, with a toss of the ball as well as a huge hug, adoring
him for all his brilliance and sweetness, alike! He spent the night
with them before heading home to Canada where he’ll be center stage
as the most special guy around which he so deserves. We’re just
thrilled for Cooper to have this special time with people who can
cherish him. He is one wonderful Border Collie!
COOPER: An 11 year old Border Collie, Cooper is one of the
nicest guys around - he loves everyone and he loves his ball! An
active, athletic guy, he’d love to play ball forever since in his
mind, he’s no senior! Once the ball is away, he’s an easy going boy,
loves attention and thinks everyone is his friend! Truly everyone!
This sweetheart fits in easily wherever he goes and is used to
living with another BC. He came to GHF with Emma, age 7, both given
up due to a divorce and move from the country to an apartment. While
they’ve lived together for seven years, Emma gives him quite a hard
time every time he goes for his ball, so we’d like to give Cooper a
break with a new life where he’s not being bossed around. He is good
with cats and about 50 pounds.
LOUIE landed the right guardians who would
cherish him for his fabulous nature and enjoy the challenge of
guiding him through life, no matter what obstacles arise. This
wonderful boy has all the drive to play and learn and explore and
now will have someone 24/7 to do this with him. He’ll have 33 acres
to enjoy and be the center of attention, along with a FurDad who
joins in the fun, too. Louie lept on the couch for hugging before
heading out to his new forever home! A very huge thanks to Judy and
Gary Eckenrode who gave their hearts fostering Louie, to help him be
ready for this very special moment.
A 1 year old Border Collie, Louie is amazing. He’s outgoing, loves
attention and connects quickly with people. While he has sight
limitations, watching him play ball and navigate around outside is
inspiring.. he’s fearless and joyful! And, we’re pretty sure he can
see shapes since he doesn't’ bump into anything at all. He learns
quickly and loves his toys, a classic Border Collie player. Louie is
great with everyone he meets as well as cats. He loves to race and
chase with other dogs but we’d like to give him a life where he is
the full focus of his person rather than with other dogs. Louie is
40 pounds, has been evaluated at Cornell ophthalmology and surgery
is not likely to yield any change. He was born with ocular
WYNN won the hearts of his new guardians after
they met a few of the rescue dogs, having a hard time deciding exactly
who was to be their new beloved friend. Wynn’s outgoing, classic BC
traits led them to spend more time with him and just as they were
thinking of another of the dogs who was super cuddly (Wynn wasn’t cause
he’s a toy boy!), he literally jumped right into his new FurDad’s lap,
leaning heavily against him settled as if he’d heard their concerns.
Then, went right over to his new FurMom and did the exact same thing!
They knew in that moment, that all three were clearly in sync and this
was the boy to head home to Maine with them. After coming a long day’s
drive, they overnighted with Wynn and headed out to their new journey
together. He’ll be playing along the beach right outside his back door
and be their constant companion which he will surely love!
WYNN: A 1 year old Border Collie, Wynn is a
handsome guy and certainly athletic, too. He’s a huge toy dog, happy to
chase and return anything tossed his way, non-stop if you let him! Wynn
has plenty of energy but does settle nicely inside once he’s been busy
enough all day. He is happiest with a BC buddy and since he has some
worries about new situations, he really needs a mentor pal to lead the
way. He just loves playing with the young BC’s at the Farm. Wynn is a
loving boy who is eager to please and a bit sensitive so we’d like to
give him a less chaotic household. He will only be adopted to BC savvy
guardians. Wynn is good with cats and is 45 pounds. He was found by a
dog lover who spotted him loose on a NY road and thankfully helped him
find safety. And, yes, his ears are floppy when he’s ball focused, that
directional ear that some busy BC’s have!
Sweet EMMA found a new FurMom who will adore
her for all the wonderful sweetness she has to offer plus all the
brilliance of that great mind of hers! She’s hoping that Emma will enjoy
therapy dog training which they can pursue together and wants to give
her a chance at agility, too. We’re pretty sure Emma would love both but
feel excited that she might share that loving heart of hers with others
who need her ‘cause she sure loves people! Emma happily headed off to a
new life where she’ll be center stage!!
a petite 7 year old Border Collie, Emma is a gorgeous girl with a great
personality, super friendly and super fun! She has plenty of energy for
lots of play, in fact meeting her you would think she’s about 4 years
old, a drivey go, go, go girl. However, she settles in beautifully
inside, right next to you for tons of cuddling, happy as can be so she’s
got that wonderful ‘off’ switch that makes living with a BC, so much
easier. Smart, focused and a real spitfire, Emma is a great, joyful,
good natured girl. She lived with 11 yr old Cooper but lost her home
due to a divorce and move to an apartment. She is good with cats and
about 35 pounds. She is a classic in-charge female BC so best with
submissive males or as a solo dog.
A lovely high energy, 1 yr old, named ADELE
popped up on the internet needing a new home so we reached out to offer
help and now, Adele has a new life! Her new name is Addie, joining a GHF
alum, Breeze, and another canine pal, Killian, who has been a GHF camper
for a long time. This ironic twist of fate started with plans for a few
overnights awaiting a transport and as the story goes, she never left!!
We’re thrilled for her new guardians who instantly saw the perfect
match: "These girls act like they've been together forever. I knew I
couldn't separate them!” A special thanks to GHF adopter, Jim Geiser.
Sweet, wonderful FINN now has a life with loving guardians who adore
the breed as he joins a GHF alum, Jemma, for tons of BC fun! Within minutes
of ball play, it was clear that Finn, now Jax was going to fit great, almost
as fast and as focused as his new canine pal. Both sweet dogs, they were a
natural paired together and will bring lots of laughter and fun to their
FurMom and FurDad who are on their 3rd GHF rescue! They were thrilled to
have another great dog!!
FINN: An 8 month old Border Collie with ABCA
papers, Finn is a great boy, really good natured. He has a ton of energy to
race and chase and loves to retrieve, happily playing with anyone who will
toss a toy his way. He also loves other dogs and clearly would love a young
friend to make up herding games. Finn is a soft dog so best with easy going
dogs who don’t over-control him. Curious, smart and good natured, Finn will
easily be a great companion. A PA dog lover stepped in to get him out of a
bad situation where he was being tied outside, no shelter, food or water.
Clearly, she did a great thing for this lucky boy who will now have the life
he so deserves! He is about 35 pounds and not good with cats.
Little JUD waited to find the perfect fit
and it was well worth it - not only did he match just right with his
new canine pal, Izzy, his new FurMom and FurDad understand the BC
brain and energy so he’ll have plenty to do! Jud will get a chance
to try herding as well as other fun canine activities like rally,
obedience and agility….all in all, the ideal spot for this busy boy!
We know his life would unfold beautifully, step by step.
JUD: A 9
week old Border Collie, little Jud is the sweetest guy and full of
spunk and curiosity for everything! He loves toys, he loves dogs and
he loves people, just the best nature for a pup! He really would be
happy with a young canine pal so we would prefer he have a friend.
He’s a focused guy so could also tackle anything like agility or
frisbee, very coordinated and agile. He is about 10 pounds. He and
his brothers came from an Amish dairy farm and now, he’s the last
waiting for his new life to start!
Little TY landed a life with a family experienced in herding dogs and
so thrilled to have another! They had been patiently waiting for many months
for just the right pup to fit their two other dogs, missing that herding
mind. Ty will be the center of attention, and have some long hikes at the
golf course that abutts their home, a perfect place for frisbee too. Ty now
lives in Massachusetts
7 weeks old and as adorable in
person as you can imagine. Both are very observant, thoughtful dogs not for
adopters inexperienced with herding dogs. They were part of an accidental
litter, mother a purebred BC. While we were told the father was a BC, we’re
pretty sure they are bc/cattle dog mixes based on looks and temperament.
Before considering these pups, please be sure you read about
cattle dogs and understand their intensity.
As we expected, ARCHIE turned some heads upon arrival and within
days, he found his new life! Former GHF adopters had been patiently waiting
for a mix pup to land at GHF and came right over to meet this little guy. Of
course, they fell in love just like everyone else who met him along the way
to the Farm. So, Archie will be the adored friend of his new family, have a
canine pal, alum Griff, for lots of play and surely, tons of love!
ARCHIE: A 7 month old mini-Aussie mix, (supposedly
Border Collie too), Archie is a sweet guy who so loves his person. Like many
smaller herding dogs, he blossoms when everything makes sense and then, he
really shows his lively, fun nature, wanting to be right by your side.
Archie is little lap dog, only 20 pounds and loves to spring off the ground,
his whole body straight up to you! He’s a sensitive guy so will do well with
someone who understands his nature since many mini-aussies are a bit worried
at times. He is smart, cute and sweet as can be and so far, showing no
interest in toys but that could change with some help. He loves being with
other dogs and makes canine friends easily! Archie was living in an
apartment with people who had no clue what he needed so we’re glad to have
him at GHF.
PIPPA found a wonderful new life suited exactly to her - she’ll get
to learn herding, try agility and hike til her hearts content on her own 10
acres! Plus, with a 600 acre sanctuary nearby, she’ll have plenty of freedom
to explore. Her new FurMom has had plenty of BC’s and loved Pippa’s
thoughtful nature, clearly a classic girl, a perfect addition to her life.
We’re thrilled for Pippa to find such a perfect new home.
A 6 month old Border Collie, Pippa is an amazing pup, very mature for her age
and clearly quite the thinker, focused and curious about everything. Pippa is
well balanced, stable and adjusts easily to new things, analyzing what is
going on around her and sorting out the proper response. She is truly
impressive. A confident girl, she will clearly need activities to stimulate
her mind so will only go to a BC savvy home who understands the mental
needs of the breed. Pippa is not for first time BC guardians. She has a
work ethic that is yet to be fulfilled. Pippa is also super sweet, friendly
and affectionate, an extremely loving dog. To her, everyone is her friend.
She’s good with other BC’s and already showing the controlling female traits
so will only be placed with a male BC since the boys and girls do best
together or she could be placed alone. She is 25 pounds and good with cats.
ASH found a loving couple who are so excited to have him join
their lives, as a new family member! He’ll be going for hikes and enjoy lots
of fun activities but most importantly, be their best friend. Ash absolutely
loves all the attention and we know will thrive in their care. We’re so
excited for all of them to find each other!
ASH: A 2 year old Border
Collie/Aussie mix, Ash is an outgoing, energetic boy with lots of energy for
racing, chasing and playing. He will love a youthful guardian who loves to
be active WITH him. He’s friendly with everyone and happy to say hello,
joining whatever activity is going on at the time. Most of all, he loves toy
play with his person as well as playing with other dogs. Ash is a physical
player so does best with dogs with that play style. A super sweet guy, he’s
tons of fun and a big boy who wants to play, play, play. Ash is good with
cats and about 50 pounds, taller than most BC’s. He lived in one home since
a pup but a move forced his guardian to pass him to GHF.
Brilliant TESS found a new FurMom who not only
understands that clever mind of hers, she loves it, happy to have a
super thinker back in the house! She adores Border Collies and was so
thrilled to add Tess to her life with plans of agility! Tess has the
mind and body of an incredible athlete so will likely excel in the sport
plus she’ll have thousands of acres to hike, just yards away from her
new home in rural Vermont! These two were instantly a perfect pairing!
A petite 1 year Border Collie, Tess is a lovely little girl who thinks
about everything step by step, then takes action! This intelligent girl
is quite orderly and thoughtful. What a lovely cuddle bug just so wiggly
and happy to get attention. Everyone loves Tess! She’s also quite a
herder of other dogs and has a bit of bossy female attitude with dogs,
too, so she can be a bit much for other dogs which is why we’ll find her
a home where she’s the center of attention as a solo dog. She is very
smart and will do best with a BC savvy guardian. She loves attention and
clearly thinks people are wonderful though she’s not one to boldly throw
herself at you. She is about 32 pounds and is not good with cats. Tess
also has an interest in cars so needs to be in a rural setting to
minimize the stimulation. Tess
was living an outside farm dog life and was then abandoned after the
family moved out, literally leaving her outside on her own, waiting for
them to come home. Tess is now, loving the good life, cozy and warm
inside and is a huge cuddle-bug!
ZIVA found new guardians who adore the breed
and fell in love with her sweetness and intelligence as she quickly
captured their hearts. She will have a canine pal to enjoy tons of fun
in a very active life of hiking, running, toy play and being their
constant companion since they both work from home. Plus, they live right
near a lake so she’ll have a true BC paradise now! She now lives in
ZIVA: A 3 year old Border Collie, Ziva is a
lovely, smart, focused girl and quite a thinker. She likes to make sense
of new situations and then, relaxes and joins the fun. She enjoys other
dogs but doesn’t like to be controlled, a more typical female BC, in
charge but fairly. Ziva loves her toys and has plenty of energy for lots
of play, a classic young BC. She is friendly and affectionate but needs
some time to settle in so could benefit from a friendly male canine
friend. She is best with dog savvy cats and about 45 pounds. She and her
sister, Livi, came to GHF due to a divorce, having lived in one home
since pups. While they get along, they do better without the sibling
relationship so will be placed separately. She is trained on the
While this handsome boy is
pretty far from the typical Border Collie looks, clearly more lab
with a little BC, we wanted to help him since his situation was so
dire and we were not certain another rescue would step up. So say
hello to SONNY, named after his sweet, sunny nature, happily
friendly to all he meets with no care in the world about his
predicament. He’s 55 pounds of joy and fun,
approximately 2 years old and good with cats! Good news is Sonny had lots of
angels looking over him:
First, a caring dog lover
stopped after spotting him running down the street as her
daughter called, ‘here doggie’ and he jumped right in the
car…thank you Michelle Tulumello who contacted GHF!
Second, animal control of
Broome County NY took him right in, willing to work with GHF!
Third, GHF stepped in, arms
open for whatever it would take
Then lastly , Cornell gave
this boy a great surgical team… and even a discount to rescue!
We just received confirmation
that Sonny’s mass is totally benign! It was a trichoblastoma, a
tumor related to the cells that reside in the hair follicles. There
is no danger of cancer whatsoever!!!
In one of our favorite adoptions of all time,
SONNY & TOBIE found a new life together. They’ll see each
other all the time though have different households since Mom & Dad live
right near their daughter & husband with all the dogs mixing together
whenever needed. They live right on the same street and love the fun of
a big pack so this canine frat house is going to be tons of fun. The two
Border Collies, Bailey & Brenn are GHF alums (adopted when their
daughter was in high school) so when it was time to add so many years
later, the whole family said GHF was the place to come and we’re so glad
they did. Sonny instantly charmed everyone with his fabulous nature and
then out came Tobie, the classic BC brain and body in search of a ball!
Happy dogs and joyful humans sharing the new journey together really
made our day as all the staff smiled ear to ear! Tobie & Sonny now live
TOBIE: A 2 year old
Border Collie, Tobie is a gorgeous guy and a great athlete..he is fast
and agile and classic in his energy level! He loves to race and run,
gorgeous to watch in action. Tobie is a big player so could benefit from
a young canine friend who likes chase games, like him. Though he does
love to play with dogs, he values his person equally, truly wanting to
be right with you. Quite the cuddler, he’s happily a great companion. He
will need a guardian who understands his mental and physical needs since
he’s looking for activities and something to do! Tobie is changing a lot
in his foster home where he has a fenced yard and can really experience
being an active BC rather than tied out like in his previous home. Tobie
lived with four children so didn’t get the focused attention he really
needs. Tobie is from breeding lines in Ohio and Indiana. Tobie is
about 50 pounds and fine with dog savvy cats.
One of the most wonderful seniors to land at GHF
- JACKSON - met one of the most wonderful GHF
adopters/fosterers and now they are paired together! Jackson is
officially home. After a few short months, this match is happily
permanent. Not a big surprise cause we knew the odds were likely
this would be the outcome and both human and canine, are thrilled!
A former GHF adopter, his new FurDad is incredibly happy to have
such a fabulous pal again! They are together 24/7, enjoying lots of
ball play, plenty of couch time and really ‘best buds’.
JACKSON: A 12
year old Border Collie, Jackson is one spitfire, absolutely one of
the coolest seniors to land here in awhile. He’s ready to rock,
playing ball and curious about everything, as vibrant as any
youngster around! Jackson is a ball and frisbee nut of course and
also a great hiking partner, with a history of off-leash living. He
is also very smart, sweet, friendly and truly, just a doll. While he
gets along ok with dogs outside, Jackson prefers to be the only dog
since that’s been his life since a pup. He lived in one home and
sadly, his guardian is moving overseas where he cannot go. Jackson
is a trim 40 pounds and is good with cats. He originally came
from a breeder in Georgia with a working sheep farm.
Sweet, gentle ELLIS found a new life with GHF
adopters who felt they could offer a wonderful home to him. Experienced
with a blind dog and senior dogs, they knew exactly what he would need
and were thrilled to have him join their lives. Ellis won their hearts
with his loving nature and then joyful toy focus, content to take his
‘find’ and head off for a journey! We’re thrilled for this incredibly
special BC, now the 4th GHF dog to be adored by them. His new FurMom
will be his constant companion 24/7. He now lives in Massachusetts.
A 10 year old Border Collie, Ellis is a lovely guy, absolutely THE
sweetest boy around. Soon as he hears any human voice, he heads right
there to say hello even though he needs a little help orienting since
Ellis is blind. His eyes may not see a thing but his heart surely does..
he is one AMAZING Border Collie. His desire to be with you brings him
right to your side with a simple whistle and encouragement. He will be
so easy to orient to a new setting since he’s people focused and in
short order, taking guidance for ‘careful’, ‘yes’, ‘no’, commands, happy
to have assistance. Ellis is curious, full of spunk and loves to walk to
explore. He also loves other dogs, extremely happy to get to know
whomever is near him. He is also good with cats. Ellis is about 40
Cornell opthomalogy confirmed that Ellis is indeed
blind so there is nothing to be done but enjoy this happy, good natured
boy. Amazingly, he lived nearly a decade chained to a ‘dog box’ outside.
A neighbor witnessed his life alone day in and day out. She saw no one
interacting with him, even talking him for a walk. All she longed for
was for him to have love, drinkable water, be warm and clean, like any
dog should be treated. She contacted the Humane Society pleading for
help and a humane officer in PA stepped up to gain his freedom.
This sweet sweet Border Collie carries no
sadness for his less than ideal life but only enthusiasm for his new
journey. Ellis has a spectacular spirit and will grace all that meet
him, just radiating love. Whoever gets to share a journey with
Ellis is very very lucky. We are all grateful to spend time with
BEAU was truly smiling ear to ear when meeting
his new FurMom and FurDad and then clearly showed his appreciation for
his new friendship and new life! A wonderful match for all, as he’ll be
their constant companion with lots of ball play each day and also enjoy
so much love, which he so deserves. Beau will even enjoy time at a
nearby lake, getting a chance to go for a swim to cool off. Considering
how this boy plays ball non-stop, that’s a perfect life that suits him
just fine! We are absolutely thrilled for this wonderful boy to go from
such a rough, rough start in life and end up in such good hands, so
cherished. We can’t wait to see how gorgeous he is once all his hair has
returned! He now lives in New Jersey.
year old Border Collie, Beau is really on the mend over the past two
months at GHF. He’s gained weight, his coat is growing in quickly and
the condition of his fur is fantastic, thanks to high quality nutrition
and salmon oil, too! We’re thrilled to see this boy feeling strong and
healthy. Happy is he, no matter more fur or not, cause he LOVES the
ball! He will happily play ball with anyone willing to toss his way
he’s so athletic, he can catch anything! Beau is an affectionate guy
too, loving a belly rub and a good car ride or walk, happy to be with
his person. Beau has a marvelous personality, absolutely fabulous with
everyone he meets - everyone! He is about 45 pounds and is good with
cats. Beau would do best as a solo dog where he gets full attention and
doesn’t need to share his toys! He came to GHF from a PA shelter.
Step by step, he’ll gain all his hair again and is in good health after
all the diagnostics at Cornell put him on the right track.
