TRUMAN found his home the minute he arrived at the Farm as one of our team saw the hatchback open and there he was in the crate! She gasped and said, 'oh no, I'm in trouble' and as the cliche says, the rest is history. She is one of our trainers so was here numerous times each week and could not resist adding him to her life - he was exactly what she had been hoping to find! So, Truman joins two other GHF alums and another canine friend where he'll be adored and cherished. We'll get to see him frequently, too!

TRUMAN: A 2 year old Border Collie, Truman is friendly, outgoing and happy to be with people. He also loves other BC friends, racing, chasing and playing. He is a lively boy who enjoys a good chase game but also settles well once inside. Truman is smart and focused but not overly intense. He is good natured and curious about everything going on around him. He is about 35 pounds and good with cats. He came to the Farm from a VA guardian who could no longer keep him. 

LIAM won't need to look far for his new home because he's staying right where he is, with his foster Mom. He traveled with her to Colorado, starting working the sheep once home and has transformed into an incredible friend, trusting her and eager to learn and try anything she asks of him. Liam was a very troubled pup who was biting at a very young age. His Foster Mom signed up to see if she could help him and in fact, she most certainly did - he's as normal as can be, in her care and knows that life makes sense now! We are incredibly happy to hear that Liam will live with the person who really understands him best. He's now settled in forever in NJ.

LIAM: An 8 month old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Liam is a very smart guy who likes a challenge. He is clearly good at observing what goes on around him and he wants to make sense of it all but he does need a very savvy BC guardian to help him. Liam can get in over his head, over stimulated by new things so a good guardian who is oriented to positive training and shaping his behaviors, will do well with him. He is brilliant. Liam is learning all about toys and very interested. He is not yet tested on cats. He was surrendered directly to the Farm. 

JETT finally landed EXACTLY where he is supposed to be after his wonderful start with his fosterers! He now joins another GHF adopter who lost one of their beloved BC's and saw Jett as the ideal fit to join their pack. Both volunteers met together and it was so clear that Jett did indeed fit their family, two legged and four legged! He loved his two canine friends, both GHF alums! So, Jett will enjoy his own 10 acres plus a nearby 400 that is filled with bridges, woods, creeks and pastures which Jett will love! This little guy loved his new dog friends and quickly cuddled with his new guardians. The great joy was also bringing together two volunteers who have been a part of the Farm since it started - both share a deep love for Border Collies and rescue - so it was very poignant that this little pup who survived thanks to rescue, landed in the care of people who really understand and really care! He now lives in upstate NY!

JETT: A 6 month old old Border Collie, Jett is a remarkable little guy, so focused and present, clearly on a mission. He is smart and observes everything around him, eager to be involved. Jett is very intense, high energy and busy, busy, busy. He is sweet as they come but will need savvy BC guardians since he is looking for a job to do. He'll be happiest in an active home and with another BC friend for play, to help manage his energy needs.  He is completely healthy and raring to go. Jett is OK with dog savvy cats.  Jett came from the NY area when guardians surrendered him to our vet due to illness.  Jett loves the water and his trail walks, a happy guy with lots of energy!

FLETCH now known as Fletcher found the place he wants to be - right where he is! He's been in rescue 13 months to help him with confidence issues so he's had the lucky chance of being with one of our fosterers who gave him a big life of meeting lots of people; trying agility and living with her other dogs and horses on her farm. Well, he LOVED it!  And, while he gave her challenges like being a non-stop fence jumper and horse chaser, he also won her heart day after day. So, today's email sealed the deal: He loves the family and he loves it here.  He has a big circle of friends now and he continues to grow.  Someday he might even be "normal," whatever that is.  Hopefully someday he will be able to compete in agility, he enjoys the obstacles, will have to get over the whole trial situation.  But we have years to work on that. I am thinking that it is inevitable, Fletcher is my dog!

FLETCH: An 1 yr old Border Collie mix, Fletch landed in a sea of Border Collies and hasn't looked back since, having the time of his little life running and chasing and playing!! He loves the dogs and would easily enjoy a canine companion or even two. He is fantastic with other dogs and feels most comfortable with dogs friends. He's gotten some of the older BC's playing chase games again, very cute to see. Fletch is a bit shy with people at first so needs a fairly calm home that is more dog oriented than full of visitors.  He  will need confidence building, over time, with a patient guardian.  He's the sweetest little guy, full of puppy innocence and having a great time discovering the great outdoors. He is about 30 pounds, typical in size for his age and is good with cats. 

GRIFF landed at the Farm and 12 hours later into his new life! An adopter had been waiting for a nice easy dog and he was it!  A wonderful BC/Aussie mix, this love bug is one happy boy now!

BO found a new life with one of our campers who came to enjoy GHF and meet potential dogs for their puppy. They had a chance to spend time with four different dogs, watching to see the chemistry for that special magic. It was Bo who made it all come together, happy to play with their 5 month old pup, Meg and intensely ready for a relationship of play for himself, too. Real Border Collie lovers, they knew he was the dog to suit them best and off he went, to his new life! We'll see him this fall for agility camp! He now lives in NY.

BO: A 2 year old Border Collie, Bo is Mr Friendly, liking everyone he meets and hoping for a ball toss! He's quickly become the Farm favorite, even amidst so many nice BC's here. He is smart, focused, responsive and eager to bond. He really wants a person who can connect with him, do things with him and enjoy a close friendship. Bo is a classic BC who needs activities, not overly intense, but very active for sure. He is good with other dogs but happiest with a person who will play with him. He is about 40 pounds and not yet tested on cats. He was a stray in PA in a shelter that thankfully works with GHF. He is a really great boy. 

ZOE: A 4 month old Border Collie needed a new place to go where her energy could be channeled into something productive. Lucky for her, she lived right near one of our intake team so when our volunteer went to meet her, she took her home so little Zoe would have more home time before her adoption. Of course, Zoe had other plans and charmed everyone in the family instantly so she never left! She has already tried tracking, been swimming and hiking and will get to try agility too, as she joins her canine friend, Arrow, who thinks she's fabulous too! Zoe now lives in NY and we'll get to see a lot of her!

ROZE is joining the GHF Farm pack, enjoying hikes on the trails and lots of ball play with her new BC friends. A soft girl with some worries of being wrong, she's happy now without a lot of human pressure, just racing and playing in the country. Gorgeous and sweet, she's home.

ROZE: A 4 year old Border Collie, Roze is amazing. She's focused, fun and fast and loves to work which means ball play. She is very agile and very intelligent so could learn anything. She also settles beautifully once inside but absolutely needs that stimulation of a toy playing BC home. Roxe is very driven and very active, great off leash and would be a wonderful hiking partner. She is good with other dogs and likes to herd them but once a person shows up, she's eager to play. Roze is a 'soft' BC so does best with positive motivation, not correction.  She'll do best with an active guardian but not a chaotic home. She would enjoy a young male BC for racing, chasing and making up herding games. She is about 40 pounds. Roze was abandoned at a NJ shelter.

RENO passed peacefully July 8th freed from the body that was hindering him.  Rather than share my perspective on this very very special spirit who graced the Farm, I wanted to share what he had to say to me and his perspective. (click here for Reno message) Colleague and animal communicator Dawn Hayman assisted me with his transition.  

Teachers arrive in all shapes and sizes in our lives and this boy Reno, was a master. A spirited guy with tons of will, we are glad he came to us. We spent six months watching him renew and heal, leading to this moment of departure.


RENO: A 10 -11 year old Border Collie, Reno is full of spunk and likes to do things his way! He is spirited and sweet and like many senior BC's, quite the character. He likes to trot along checking everything out and perks right up to see other BC's. He can move pretty fast even though his back end is a bit weak cause he's full of determination. Reno can sees great though is deaf at this point, probably due to old age. He is 46 pounds and not yet tested on cats. He was found wandering outdoors one morning in upstate NY. The shelter works with GHF so he quickly came to the Farm. 

King's Angels
Kim, Russ, Alexi & Brook Burd
KING: A 7 year old Border Collie, King is a happy guy who enjoys being with his person and also loves a good game of ball. He is friendly and interested in what's going on around him, though does take some time to sort out the details of a new situation and get comfortable. His person is what's most important to his security so he bonds really quickly and loves attention. King is a smart BC with all the traits of a thoughtful dog who likes to make sense of his world. He is carrying a lot of extra weight since he lived with an elderly woman who shared her goodies a bit more than normal. He'll knock that weight off fairly easily at the Farm. King is good with cats. He came to the Farm from a PA guardian who was admitted to a nursing home. He originally came from a farm in PA. 

Special thanks to Kristine Hammar, Janine Choplick,  Susan Myers, and Debbie Grassi for transporting King  to safety at the Farm

BISHOP transformed into the most incredible little guy who wanted to meet everyone in the world! He discovered a bigger life and never looked back, eagerly embracing anything and everything! One day at agility, he even jumped out of the X-pen and ran to an Assisted Living facility, to meet the people he saw! So, now onto his new life with a wonderful family who were smitten with him the minute they met. Not even ready to add a dog again after the loss of their beloved canine friend, soon as they met him, their hearts soared. He happily went into his new home like he'd been there all his life. Bishop will have canine friends to meet and greet as well the constant love of his new family. He now lives in Massachusetts and his foster Mom will get to see him!

BISHOP: a 1-1/2 year old border collie, Bishop is a wonderful classic border collie. He has a nice balanced energy level, active and playful but content to settle down too.  He's very smart and thinks things through and is almost always willing to try new experiences.  Bishop was part of the Texas confiscation, and his wonderful temperament and brave spirit have enabled him to bounce back and greet life head on!  He is sweet, kind, polite, gentle and fun - he loves to play with toys and will toss them around on his own for entertainment, flipping them in the air with so much joy.  He loves other dogs of all shapes and sizes, and loves to herd too!  Bishop is about 35 pounds and is not good with cats.  He came from a Texas confiscation.

BECKETT is the 2nd BC from the Texas group to land in his new life! We're thrilled for him as he joins GHF alum, Kalli for a wonderful life in Vt where he'll be the center of attention! He'll have a nice rural place to call his own without chaos and with tons of love. His new FurMom came to meet potential friends for Kalli and instantly felt that she would be the right person for him. He'll get to visit with her nearby neighbor and friend, who came along too, and she also agreed, this was the perfect match! So, from Texas to NY to Vermont....Beckett is on his way!

BECKETT: A 2 year old, Beckett is boldly checking out the Farm and interested in learning new things

KIP: A 4 year old Border Collie, Kip is great. He loves to race, chase and play and would love another BC friend. He is also Mr. People, all about a big hello and so friendly. He can be a little bit timid but let's that go fast with someone who understands Border Collies. He is very responsive and eager to bond. A food nut, he would be easily trained and he's curious about everything. Kip is very easy going. He does love his squeaky toys!  He would be happiest with another soft BC who likes to race, chase and play like he does!  Kip has also been started on agility and loves it. Kip is about 45 pounds, normal for a BC and is good with cats. He came to the Farm from someone who could not meet his needs. 
DOT & KIP found a new life TOGETHER and we are thrilled for them! These two absolutely adore each other and play like they've lived together all their lives. It's a constant race, wrestle, chase, herding mania going on all day long and even in their room! If there were ever two dogs that belong together, it's these two and today's guardians made that all possible, forever! They came to meet a couple of pairs but it was these two that won their hearts so much, they knew they would fit perfectly in their lives. Dot & Kip will have a wonderful yard full of things to explore and be their guardian's constant companions! This duo is also very food oriented so will be more than thrilled to have a home-cooked diet, too!!!

DOT: A 2 year old Border Collie, Dot is a doll. She loves people and loves to be involved in whatever is going on around her. She is friendly, easy going and eager to connect. Dot is also energetic and loves to play with other BC's. She is a racer and chaser and fun to watch as she instigates play. She is fast and focused though more happy go lucky than needing an intense outlet for her energy. She is very smart and eager to please. Dot would be happiest with a male BC friend. She is about 35 pounds and is good with cats. She came from a guardian who could no longer meet her needs. 

Little SPROUT found an ideal life for any Border Collie where she has 84 acres to call her own with trails for plenty of exploring. She joins her new guardians on their organic farm where she'll be their constant companion! This little girl needs lots of space for all her energy! She'll be their adored companion and forever loved. She now lives in New Hampshire.

SPROUT: An 11 week old Border Collie, little miss Sprout is a sweetheart and full of spunk! She is very cuddly but has quite an independent, opinionated nature and is already showing her bossy female side, very typical in female BC's. She is super smart and figures things out very quickly. Sprout is nervous around larger dogs but gaining confidence. She is inquisitive with toys and responsive to her person. Sprout has the typical energy level of a young BC and will only go to an experienced BC home that is ACTIVE with another BC, preferably male. Sprout is only 7 pounds at this age, very undersized for her age but she's a healthy, happy girl albeit quite petite. A dog lover stepped in to pull her out of a bad situation and is fostering her til she finds her new life.We are accepting applications now but Sprout is not quite ready for adoption. She will need a little more time in foster care.

SURIE, now affectionately known as Zinny has found her permanent home right with her fosterers. They had seen her when she was going to the vet and quickly raised their hands to help out. Of course, this sweet, gorgeous girl stepped into their hearts forever and the poem says it all! She now lives in NY.

I was born into chaos and utter despair
Dogs and puppies were everywhere

From that bad situation in Texas I flew on a plane
Glen Highland Farm where I had so much to gain

I found a small haven in the shade of a tree
Where my new mom and dad felt so sorry for me

So they asked dear Lillie if I could be fostered for a while - She said yes and they all shared a smile

Iíve been here awhile with the rest of the crew
We play and have fun. Who knew there was so much to do?

I have my own dish and a warm cushy bed
I met my new vet; she says Iím well fed

I greet every morning with my joyful howling song
Because I feel so happy that I have a place to belong

Now my mom and my dad think I should stay
So we want to know, Lillie, if that is okay

They still have so much to me they want to show
Like hiking and playing in the cold, white snow

So from the Farm Iíd be number SEVEN
Six here at home and dear Angel Meghan in heaven

I thank you so much, Lillie, for caring for me
Youíre truly an angel; itís as clear as can be

So if youíll please post my BIG red heart
My parents and I will never be apart

SURIE: A 1 1/2 year old, Surie is gorgeous and curious but holds back til she has the safety of another dog she knows.  It takes her time to warm up and gain trust.  She came from the Texas confiscation.

CAL: A 3 year old Border Collie, Cal is Mr. Friendly, ready to say hello and so eager to please. He's a sweet guy with an outgoing personality who also likes to play ball. Like any BC, he's playful and energetic but Cal is a more settled dog perhaps because for the last 3 years, he herded cattle in his former home. We're going to check him out with sheep to see if a working home is the way to go now or possibly, a fun, loving home will be better. Cal is a happy guy who likes to cuddle and shadows you wherever you go so clearly wants his person nearby. He is good with other dogs and cats. He is about 50 pounds. Cal was abandoned at a PA shelter when the guardian gave up his cattle. 
HAILE & CAL came to the Farm about a week apart and once paired as roommates, clearly became buddies. So, when adopters came to see Haile, they fell in love with her but had intended to get a puppy for the kids and as a friend for Haile. They were focused on a young pup but upon hearing how much she liked Cal, they decided to take a peek at him, too. Well, within moments of meeting this sweet, soulful boy, the puppy idea went out the window and Haile & Cal had a life together, forever!! As sometimes happens at GHF, whatever is really meant to happen, will!!! They both loved their new family and headed out to a great home with plenty of love to go around. 

HALIE: A 2 year old Border Collie, Halie is a love-bug and ball nut, a great combination of fun and sweetness. She is very smart and very eager to bond, loving everyone she meets. She likes to play with any toy tossed her way including a frisbee. She's good with other dogs but more oriented to interaction with her person. She is very good natured and while active, not overly intense. Halie is fine with cats and about 50 pounds, carrying a bit of weight that will drop off with more activity. She came to rescue due to her PA guardian's change in life and a move. 

FRANKLIN, now TUCKER found a great new life with GHF alum, Teddy, where he'll be the constant companion to his new guardians who love BC's. He'll have plenty of space to hike and play in his Rhode Island home and enjoy the beach at his Florida home! Tucker will be exploring and playing and enjoying the life Border Collies dream of - having his person by his side and lots to do! He headed home in his very own RV!

FRANKLIN: A 2 year old Border Collie, Franklin is a sweet guy who is curious about life and what goes on around him. He can be a bit timid sometimes but gets over that quickly when he has a BC friend with him. He is smart and affectionate and can easily blossom with the right guardian. Franklin mixes well with other BC's but especially the girls. He loves to play and pair up with a friend, so will only be placed with another dog in the family. He is about 40 pounds and is good with cats. Franklin came to rescue along with his littermates, Kennedy and Truman and his father, Oakley. The VA guardian could no longer care for them. 

Sweet SALLIE found the life she so richly deserves and will enjoy - with people who adore her and love her for the sweet girl she is! Sallie won their hearts so quickly, they didn't even want to see any other BC's at the Farm so off she went to Massachusetts where she'll be the center of attention and enjoy a life designed for her happiness. We are thrilled to see Sallie find her way with so much love with former adopters who returned again to GHF rescue.

SALLIE:  A 4 year old Border Collie, Sallie is a sweetheart. She is very friendly with everyone and loves attention and comes up closely to say hello and sticks by your side, wherever she goes. She is a smart girl and likes to check out everything around her plus she's quite the herder. Since she gets a overly excited herding other dogs, we want to place her as a solo dog where she can enjoy the focus of her person and a close relationship. Sallie is really enjoying the freedom at the farm, to run, play and go on walks. Sallie was abandoned at a shelter by a breeder, along with the male of the pair, once the breeder didn't want them.  All of the dogs were confiscated from the breeder and then returned except these two the MD breeder no longer wanted. It is very common for less than ethical breeders to cast off mature breeding pairs in favor of younger dogs.  They were about to be euthanized when a rescue colleague stepped in to help them.  Sallie is about 40 pounds and is good with dog savvy cats.

PERCIE found the right place with people who really understand her - they love the breed!  She drew their attention quickly as they thought about another canine BC friend and once they met her, it was in very quick order that she clearly won their hearts. She'll have all their attention and love plus non-stop BC fun on a great property with plenty to explore!  She now lives in CT.

PERCIE: A 9 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Percie is a sweetheart, absolutely gorgeous and smart. She is very very friendly and loves to be in the middle of everything.  She's not a big toy girl but she is clearly keeping track of her people and all that goes on.  She loves to go for hikes and is great off leash, a simple whistle brings her right back. Percie is a joy to be with and fits nicely into new situations, with other dogs or as the solo dog. Like all senior BC's, she wants to be with her person more than left alone.   She is not good with cats and is about 35 pounds.  Percie was given up due to a move. Her NY guardians could not take her.

BLANE found his forever home right in the foster home where he's been! As the process started to review adoptive candidates, his fosterers felt their hearts aching and knew they couldn't let go of this great pup! So, Blane or 'big shot' as they affectionately call him, will live in Massachusetts with a GHF alum! 

BLANE: A 5 month old border collie (or possibly mix), Blane is a happy guy! He is outgoing, sweet, smart, and all about being with his person.He is gentle and cuddly! He loves dogs, all kinds of toys, and water! He leaps up for the water shooting out from the hose, splashes in the kiddy pool, very funny to see. He has a balanced energy level, active and determined but also able to relax when play time is over. He is focused and eager to please, and would love a close relationship with a person. Blane is 26 pounds, about average for the breed. He is best with dog savvy cats. Blane came from a rescue in Kuwait.

LADY won the hearts of her fosterers almost as quickly as she walked through the door so, she has found her home! She's the constant companion to her guardians who love the breed. She's quite the 'lady' they say and they can't imagine life without her! She now lives in CT.

LADY: A 6 year old Border Collie, Lady is a love. She is smart, good natured and friendly with everyone. She has been a well loved family member since a pup so enjoys all the attention that comes her way. She is easy going and very eager to please. Lady landed in rescue when her elderly guardian went into assisted living. She is from NY and now being fostered in CT. She has gained weight over the past few months so will be dieting. Lady does not get along with cats.

RYLEE came to the Farm and quickly met a wonderful couple who wanted a friend for their BC, Kip, and Rylee happily got the vote! She and Kip decided that life together could be sweet and easy, no squabbles and just a great experience of playing, exploring and being loved, somewhat like a sweet older married couple! These two made a great pair. Rylee now lives in NJ and is the constant companion to her FurMom!

RYLEE: A 6 year old Border Collie/Aussie mix, Rylee is a love! She is so friendly and eager to be with people - absolutely the sweetest girl.  She is also gorgeous - the pictures don't capture her beautiful markings. She also loves toys and will enjoy lots of fun throws as well as frisbee.  She has all kinds of cute tricks she loves to do for attention but more than that, she wants to hang with her person in whatever activity is underway.  She is smart and easy going but energy for play. Rylee is great with kids and used to being part of a family.   She is trained on the invisible fence and good with cats. Rylee is also good with other dogs but mostly focused on interactions with people. She is a bit overweight due to inactivity from the guardian's focus on their toddlers.  She came directly to the Farm from her NY home, where she lived since a pup. 

BLAIR, just like his brother, Blane, traveled a very long way to the northeast, in order to find loving guardians who really wanted them as companions to adore. Well, Blair found the perfect person with the best canine friends, including two GHF alums. He also found a life with lots of learning where he'll be discovering how to use his mind and body in sports as well as lots of fun challenges. His FurMom loves agility and enjoys trying anything new to stimulate her dogs to be happier so this little guy, about to have a new name, will clearly have the best life any BC could imagine! His long flight to safe haven means a forever home filled with everything he needs!

BLAIR: A 5 month old border collie (or possibly mix), Blair is a blast! He is very smart and would love to have a job to do. He is brave, athletic, and has great structure. He would be a good candidate for sports like frisbee or agility. He loves to play in the water hose, timing his leaps perfectly to grab the water. Blair also settles nicely, happy to curl up close by, and even happier to snuggle with his person. He also loves playing with other dogs. His coat appears brown, but it is just sunburned puppy fur, and will be black with new growth. Blair is 23 pounds, about average for the breed, and has not been tested with cats. Blair came from a rescue in Kuwait.

GILIS: A 1 yr old Border Collie mix, Gilis is a love. He is Mr. Friendly, eager to say hi to everyone and join in anything going on around him. His great personality makes everyone love him and for that, he's quite the ham! Gilis loves toys and loves dogs, too, both equally but we know he'd be happiest having a great friend for lots of play. He fits with any dog he meets and has great energy to race and chase and make up doggie games. He is good with cats, too. Gilis was born with an eye that did not develop properly (it's very tiny) - so from birth, he has only had sight in one eye.  He manages just fine doing everything and anything a young BC mix likes to do! He is from a NJ shelter, turned in for his energy needs. 
GILIS & RUBY found a life of seriously good fun - a pool! and toys! and people who love to chuckle at the antics of Border Collies! The perfect fit for them. These two wrestle and roll together like kindred spirits and then focus all that BC brilliance right on the ball, back to work! An adorable pair with a wonderful family who drove 8 hours to find their new friends - we are thrilled for everyone involved! They now live in Maine, cherished forever.

RUBY: A 5 month old Border Collie, Ruby loves to play, racing around at high speed in chase games with her dog friends at the Farm. She is all action and the happiest with a pal. SHe is smart and responsive to people, very food oriented and ready to learn whatever you want to teach her. SHe is quite affectionate and loves everyone she meets. Ruby is about 25 pounds and typical in size for her age. She will do best with dog savvy cats. Ruby was relinquished to the Farm from a NY guardian who could not meet her needs while living in an apartment in the city. 

COREY found a wonderful family who understand his sensitive nature and shyness so he quickly came out of his shell with them. He and his new BC friend, Cassie have similar natures so paired up nicely as a good match. Corey will be with his FurMom as her constant companion and enjoys discovering the chickens on their property which should be fun! Corey now lives in NH where he'll even have his very own river for cooling off and play!

COREY: A 6 month old Border Collie, Corey is a gentle soul who loves affection and blossoms with reassurance. He is a soft boy who wants to be with people, happy to nuzzle you for attention and be by your side. He gains confidence with his person AND with other canine friends so will be placed with another buddy for sure. He absolutely loves to play with other dogs though does best with a young, outgoing dog for running, chasing and wrestling games. He isn't show herding interest so easily fits in with dogs who love to run. Corey will flourish in a calmer home devoted to building his trust in all the things in life, being great. He is about 30 pounds and will chase cats, but not hurt them. He was surrendered to the Farm by a dog lover who got him out of a bad situation to be sure he could have a good life, then gave him to GHF. 

SWOOP found a great new life with one of our adopter/fosterers who is also a dog trainer so he's going to have plenty to do! He'll join 3 other GHF alums in his new home where he'll be taking long walks in the countryside, learning frisbee games and being challenged every day. But, this little guy has an even more special task ahead - he'll be working with his new FurDad to help troubled children in psychotherapy work where his unique nature will be exactly the healing the kids will need! His new guardians took one look at his picture and his FurMom knew he was just the one they were looking for to join them in this special work. We're thrilled for Swoop who clearly has a soulful mission and will be doing the work he came to do!

SWOOP: A 2 1/2 month old Border Collie, Swoop lived up to his name the minute he landed at the Farm. He headed out into the seven acre field for a great run, truly having a blast, BC style! He of course met plenty other young BC's who thought he was a great little guy which of course he is...very very wonderful. Swoop is smart, adaptable, balanced and clearly a guy who can tackle whatever is in front of him, calmly with confidence. A very special pup, he will only go to a BC savvy home. 

MUNDEE found a wonderful family who loves her energy and her sweet nature! They are used to a busy BC who is crazy for the ball so she'll have plenty of ball play but most importantly, she'll be a cherished family member and the center of attention! Mundee will love that! She now lives in PA.

MUNDEE: A 4 year old Border Collie, Mundee is a fabulous toy girl! She can catch anything and is fast as can be to bring it back. She loves to play endlessly and she'll entertain herself with her favorite toys, too. She is a really sweet, good natured cuddler who can relax with you or be all action, ready to go. Plus, she's smart as a whip and eager to be with her person learning anything. Mundee is best with submissive dogs or great as a solo dog since like many female BC's, she's the leader. She is about 40 pounds and good with cats. She came from a shelter in PA when she was abandoned at a shelter due to a move.

ROXEE found the perfect family for her! Her guardians understand Border Collies and wanted a family dog this time that could be active, smart and fun but also enjoy hanging out so a little BC mix suited them perfectly. Roxee captured their hearts in quite an amazing way. For the past two years, her FurDad had been telling his kids the story about Roxee, a make believe story that had become a tradition to share in the home. Then, when they got to talking about adding a dog, her FurMom said let's name the dog Roxee. These two things happened before they even knew that Roxee at GHF was available. So, when they found her on our site, they knew they needed to 'gas up the car' as Mom said and head out to meet this infamous little girl that clearly was meant to be theirs!! Roxee happily said hello and is now heading to PA to start a new life.

ROXEE: This little spitfire is already showing her bold nature, ready to race over to anyone and check out anything. She is clearly going to be a confident girl who enjoys lots of action. Roxee is cuddly and sweet as well but loves the action.

NEILA, though camera shy, was actually the happiest girl with her new guardians, cuddling and playing non-stop. They love to throw the frisbee as much as she loves to catch it! And, she and her new BC friend hit it off well, both thinking exactly the same way - toys, toys toys! Neila showed her lovey side too as she charmed them to no end. Neila now lives in Canada right on the water where she'll get a chance to swim everyday and of course, play which she loves!

NEILA: A petite 1 year old Border Collie, Neila is a very smart girl who loves to focus her energy on learning or doing something, even sheepherding which she tried at camp! She's all about an activity that challenges her. She is also super sweet with everyone she meets and very affectionate. Neila is good with other BC's but best with a male since she has some controlling female tendencies with other dogs, very common in the breed. She is about 25 pounds and fine with cats. Neila will not be placed on an invisible fence system as she has many fears from her past situation with one.

IZZIE found the best combination for her new life - a BC buddy who loves to wrestle and chase and play, just like her and guardians who love the breed. As they overnighted at the Farm, Izzie and her buddy, Ben, gave them quite a show - frisbee catching, ball racing and then non-stop play games inside the RV - they were clearly best buds! Izzie now lives in PA and will enjoy lots of love as well as an 80 acre Farm for plenty of running when she visits her FurMom's mother's farm.

IZZIE: A 1 year old Border Collie/Aussie mix, Izzie is a sweet, super smart action oriented girl. She loves to hike off leash and enjoys a good dunk in the water as she races around with other BC friends at the Farm. She is very very people oriented and would be happy to be with her person, as a constant companion. She loves toys too and enjoys a great game of retrieval anytime you are ready to play. Izzie is energetic, very typical for a herding dog. She lived in one home til a move from Montana to PA left her with a tinier yard and guardians with less time. She is best with dog savvy cats who are used to being herded though she looses interest fairly quickly. She is about 30 pounds. She has a gorgeous long coat though had a summer clip recently so her hair looks shorter. 

ZEKE happily hopped up on the couch to sit near his new guardians and had no interest in leaving! In fact, when they were ready to move on to see two additional candidates to adopt, Zeke didn't want to leave the adoption office at all. So, when it was time for him to return, he bolted through the gate and the field and zoomed right back to the adoption office and their laps! And, as they say, the rest is history. Zeke now lives in VA where he'll be the center of attention and plenty of time for ball play and lots of love.

ZEKE: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Zeke is a very smart boy who wants to connect with his person and quickly responds to what is asked of him. He is a really sweet guy, super affectionate with people. He also loves toys! Zeke is a very energetic guy who needs someone to do something with him - ball play, hikes, even sports - but either way, he's not a lay around kind of BC. He loves to meet new people and does well with everyone.  He tends to be overly excited meeting new dogs so would do best as a solo dog and/ or with someone who can help handle dog introductions. Zeke is very eager to please and can be guided. While Zeke is a sweet, good natured guy, he will do best in a BC savvy home. He is about 45 pounds and good with cats. He was turned into a North Carolina shelter and then moved to a CT shelter so he would have a better chance to find his forever home. A shelter favorite, they were happy to see him come to rescue to find just the right BC home. 

JAYNA now affectionately known as Jane, found the best life she could imagine with her foster Mom.She didn't expect she'd grab her heart as she did but within short order, it was so clear to hear that this little girl had a special magic and needed to stay right where she landed.  She was secretly hoping that Jayna/Jane didn't generate any interest to be adopted so when she was asked for new pictures, she kindly asked to keep her!  So Jane now lives in MD and we'll see her all the time when her foster Mom visits for camp!  This beautiful  girl blossomed into a happy character with tons of charm! A long way from living with 167 BC's in a Texas puppy mill!!!!

JAYNA: A 1 1/2 year old, Jayna is very shy and of course, very beautiful. She is sweet but used to hiding when people are around so is learning new ways in her foster home now.

BANX found the right life where he can be the center of attention, enjoying the love of one person who is his. Soon as they met, he ran up, gave big kisses and happily cuddled. He clearly had voted! Banx will have plenty of BC dog friends as his new FurMom's parents have a GHF alum! He will be enjoying lots of play and clearly share his love. He now lives in CT.

BANX: A 7 year old Border Collie, Banx loves to be with his person and easily settles into the routine of whatever you are doing, loving to be with you. He also loves to play with soccer balls and is quick to race and chase endlessly. Banx is very smart and observant, always eager to understand what's going on. He likes other dogs but could be happiest as a solo dog since he's so people oriented. He's lived in one home since a pup but a divorce led to this big change for him. Banx clearly wants to be back in a home where he is adored and someone's companion. He's a great boy who is affectionate and friendly. He is not good with cats. Banx came from PA and due to recent lack of exercise, he's got some extra weight. He was bought from a NJ breeder. 

Beautiful BLEU found a great life where she can be her new FurMom's constant companion and enjoy plenty of frisbee! She and Bleu quickly bonded in that special way that reaffirms that the right dog finds the right person when it's meant to be! They seemed like they'd lived together already. Bleu happily hopped into the car to head out to her new life in NY.

BLEU: A petite 9 year old Border Collie, Bleu is easy going, good natured and ready to join in the action of play anytime! She loves the frisbee or any toy thrown her way and will play endlessly and focuses fast on the action. She is however, not a high energy BC so easily relaxes and fits into new situations. Bleu is super friendly, affectionate and great with other dogs. Her recall to return is great so could easily be a hiking companion. Bleu is also good in the car. She is good with cats. Bleu has lived in one home since a pup but a move left her abandoned in a NY shelter. She's carrying some extra weight which will easily come off. 

Sweet SADIE found a wonderful life with loving guardians who adore the breed and were smitten by her marvelous nature. She'll have 50 acres to call her own with plenty of land to explore and play ball. While Sadie previously found herself passed from person to person through circumstances of various guardians, she can now count on this being her forever home! She now lives in PA and is the constant companion to her new guardians who are thrilled she is part of their family!

SADIE: An 11 year old Border Collie, Sadie is a brilliant girl who connects instantly with people. Her friendly nature is wonderful plus she's a classic BC with all the toy interest raring to go! She loves balls, frisbee and non-stop play though will fortunately now take a break when asked - we can just imagine this girl at age 1 and how energetic she was then cause she still can be now! Sadie is very easy to be with and adjusts easily to a new situation. She loves to be wherever her person is and stays close by your side with perfect recall to come and eagerness to please. Sadie is a wonderful, affectionate Border Collie. She is best suited to an adult household since that is what she is used to.  Sadie is good with cats and about 40 pounds She came directly to the Farm from a NH guardian who could not keep her. 

KANE left us peacefully on Thurs 9/1/11 after a hard stretch with a body that was clearly giving out. He had 
1 1/2 years at GHF where he was the center of attention. His early days of arrival were filled with great exploration of the Farm yard and meeting lots of dogs who were always of interest - he was such a social butterfly with dogs! A spunky guy with tons of character, he aged gracefully right before our eyes, content to hang in the office saying hello to all those who work here, sometimes not even getting up. Kane carried his office job in a manner suited to him - some days with a growl to ask for more space; other days begging for a cookie...everyone came to know and love this guy. Kane will be sorely missed as his presence was a grand one!

KANE: A 14 year old Border Collie, Kane is quite a character. He loves the outdoors and exploring every nook and cranny and is very happy to sit outside for hours on end on warm days. He is a retired golf course dog who chased geese so the great outdoors makes sense to him though he has not worked for the past three years. Kane is also quite content to curl up inside by you, laying quietly on the floor, enjoying the companionship of his person. He is fine with other dogs and cats though mostly focused on his person. He would enjoy a calmer life where he can keep track of his person and his yard, all a part of his new 'work'. Kane has been diagnosed with vestibular disease which gives his head a bit of a tilt but he gets around just fine and has recovered really well, which most dogs do. He is an adorable guy who would really love his own yard for exploring!  Kane was living at a NJ Golf Course, given minimal care and attention so he is really enjoying a life involved with people. He was originally sold by a VA breeder for thousands of dollars. 

Beautiful BEECH found relief on the other side Thursday, as we let her go. A liver tumor was detected on Tues. at Cornell and quick determination was made that surgery was not advised. She was only with us for two months but made quite the impression with all who knew her - a sweetheart who joined in easily, fitting any situation. Beech was a delight and full of love. She loved a cool lay in the shade to watch the world go by or a quick bolt across the yard, like a puppy. She thankfully had the full attention and caring of her foster Mom who adored her as Beech was her constant companion. Though Beech's body couldn't carry her on, her marvelous spirit certainly will live on.

The incredible RIDLE- such a mystery to look at and such a marvelous personality to be with - found his new life! He's on his way to a future with lots of outdoor fun -trail walks on the guardian's 25 acres in Nantucket MA plus another big acre property in NH. But, most importantly, he'll be totally cherished as their new companion and have his own canine buddy too! (not pictured)

RIDLE: This adorable boy  is gorgeous with such unique coloration. He is such a people oriented pup, happy to hang in your lap and be held for cuddles. Ridle is all about play, too, of course but is a more thoughtful, observant guy, checking out everything that is going on around him. He loves other dogs and is very good natured. 

Sweet KENT popped up in a NJ shelter who wanted help from rescue. Lucky for Kent, who was only 6 months old, someone we know was willing to foster him right away. Of course, this little guy won her heart and he's staying put! He now will get to do agility, herding and enjoy an incredible doggie life filled with love and plenty to do! 

KADE has been waiting for just the right fit for him. He came to GHF super scared, slinking along the grass afraid to stand up and over the last 8 months, he learned to not only stand up straight and tall, he learned to play. He loves to play with dogs and began to have a blast, racing, chasing, herding and wrestling. But, something else happened over these months. Kade began to love people. He put his big fear aside and would go over for affection and share his sweet nature to those who were patient. And, then, during kids camp this summer when he was paired with one of the inner city children - he showed just how magnificent his heart really is - he transformed the  child assigned to help him and he was transformed by them! Watching Kade cuddle with his child and bravely try obedience and the agility course, brought tears to everyone's eyes. We all applauded as this shy little guy put aside his worries and gave his whole heart.

And, now, he's going to give his heart full time to his new guardian who fell in love with him. She came to volunteer and it was Kade who got the first night in the adoption office. His charm and her kind, gentle ways made the perfect match, forever. We are all so incredibly happy for this wonderful boy and his new FurMom. 

A special thanks to Ashley Porter for pulling him out of an awful situation; for Lori Coon & her family who were his first fosterer and for the entire GHF caretakers who gave sweet Kade all that he needed to believe that a great life was his to have! 

Kade is going back to Vermont and will live the life he richly deserves. We will miss him.

KADE: A 1 year old Border Collie, Kade is a happy, good natured guy who really wants to have a blast in life and is learning that it's possible. He absolutely loves other dogs and needs a good canine friend for sure. He's super sweet and gentle but loves to play physically with other dogs so a good natured young dog is the right fit for him. Kade is a gorgeous boy in person and will blossom into a marvelous friend once he has more experiences in life. He is about 35 pounds and good with cats. He was relinquished to the Farm from a breeder who could not sell him. He is from VT. We feel a hard fence would be better than an invisible fence since this Kade is a soft dog who could become worried by the system.

ZIVA found the perfect life where she'll be the constant companion to her new FurMom and be the center of attention! Miss Ziva loves having all that affection and she has plenty to give back, too. She'll also enjoy beach walks and hiking and will go camping during the good weather. All in all, a life she will surely love! She now lives in Rhode Island.

ZIVA: A 2 year old Border Collie, Ziva is a love, full of kisses and wanting to be your friend. She's also focused and loves to herd other dogs as she races and chases around. She likes toys, too though loves to cuddle with her person just as much. Ziva can be a bit shy at first but once she feels comfortable, she is your best friend forever.  She is smart and eager to please.  Ziva is good with cats and about 40 pounds. She came to rescue due to her guardian's illness. She is from a breeder in NY.

DUNCAN is heading to a home that really understands him! He'll be a non-stop toy boy, which he loves and have a great time hiking and exploring with his new FurMom. They'll be constant companions day in and day out, enjoying a great life in MD. Duncan won her heart when she came to visit, hoping to find another beloved BC. Soon as she spent minutes with him, she was smitten and so was he...clearly a great bond happened for them both.

DUNCAN: A 2 1/2 year old Border Collie, Duncan is a smart, observant boy who takes in everything around him, quickly. He then knows just what to do. He is a big toy boy and loves to engage instantly for a ball throw. He is very eager to please and wants to connect when he meets someone new though you can see he is a thinker, sorting out step by step what is expected of him. He is not chaotic and in fact, a very settled BC since he's thoughtful. He loves to run with the other dogs at the Farm but would be happiest as a solo dog. He is about 40 pounds and is not good with cats. He came to the Farm from a PA shelter. 

Sweet, smart SARGE found the most marvelous home suited just to him! He's joining a family of canine friends where he'll have a blast doing agility and any other sport he enjoys. But, more importantly, he was chosen to be their new Search and Rescue dog for disaster work. His new guardians were visiting campers back at GHF for vacation and asked about a young BC. When they explained what they were looking for, it was so clear it was Sarge's new calling. He is one of the most confident, curious and bold pups who goes anywhere to see anything with no worries at all - just one happy, outgoing boy! So, Sarge, now called Edwin is on his way to sharing his big loving heart and his incredible natural ability to explore the world! He now lives in MD where he'll also enjoy lots of water fun too on their boat!

He is hilarious to watch as he interacts with all the adult dogs, so excited to race and chase and follow their lead. Sarge is very outgoing and eager to join in everything. He's confident, curious and really good natured. Sarge also loves cuddling and being with people, giving his puppy kisses easily. This little guy is one smart boy eager to enjoy life.  Sarge was abandon at a MD shelter.

SONNY found wonderful guardians who love the breed and wanted to add another smart, fun-loving, focused BC and so they did! Sonny charmed them with his sweet nature as well as ball play but most importantly, he clearly chose them too, hanging with them as they walked the field and happy to settle by their feet as they sat outside to talk over their decision. Sonny, now known as Finn, had cast his vote very happy to be with them and also loving to play with his new BC friend! They chased and raced and made up their own game instantly! Sonny/Finn now lives in NY.

SONNY: A 2 year old Border Collie, Sonny is a really sweet guy, very comfortable meeting people and eager to do so. He also loves toys and wants to enjoy lots of play but he's a cuddler, too. Sonny loves attention and being next to his person. He is smart and focused but not overly intense. He is great with other dogs, enjoying the play of a group or a canine friend. Sonny is not yet tested  on cats. He came to the Farm from a PA shelter. The b/w ticking on his face make his muzzle look very wide but it is not at all. 

DI (Diamond) found a great life with a GHF adopter who came back to add a third dog to his pack! He wanted to meet this special girl and once he did, he was excited to add her to his life. She will have tons of acreage for exploring, plenty of hikes by the river and all the ball play she needs! A perfect combination for DI! She now lives in upstate NY.

DI (DIAMOND): A 6 year old Border Collie, Diamond is a doll. She absolutely loves everyone and every toy known to man! She'll play, play, play. She's smart as as whip and eager to please - a classic BC with lots of brains, lots of energy and great looks, too. Diamond is great with other dogs and enjoys being around them but most enjoys, having her person toss the ball her way. She's good off leash and would easily be a great hiking partner. Diamond was given up due to a divorce, from a PA guardian. 

KOBE came to the Farm just in time to meet his new guardians. We'd been hoping to help Kobe come to rescue but had been delayed. His new guardians were coming to camp for a vacation and were also delayed. They arrived the same day that Kobe did. When they came in for a rescue tour a few days later and met Kobe, they wanted to spend more time with him. It was an instant fit. So, he joined them in the RV for an overnight and hikes around the property and within hours, it was as if Kobe had lived with them his whole life! So, Kobe is now headed to NH for a new life with two canine friends that all fit together perfectly and guardians who absolutely love him. It seems the timing for this all to happen was just right! He'll be their constant companion and enjoy plenty of toy play, hikes and hanging with his new buds.

KOBE: A 9 year old Border Collie, Kobe is so sweet. He is a gentle guy who enjoys people and dogs alike. He loves to explore the great outdoors and play with his jolly ball. He is great with other dogs, fitting in easily with any breed. Kobe is one of those wonderful mature BC's who adjusts to wherever he is and has found the Farm to be a great place for now!

He's a little bit overweight from inactivity coming from his recent guardian's situation. He came to the Farm from PA and been in one home since a pup.
