TIG found a marvelous
home with a Border Collie friend, previously adopted almost one year to
the day, Lucy. When the two of them met, it was instant racing and chasing
and tumbling and turning..an amazing connection of two like minded spirits
in agile bodies! His new guardians loved the action and knew they'd be a
great pair for life! So, off Tig went to his new life in CT.
A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie mix, Tig is a live wire. He is all
action and could easily compete in any sport activity. He is super fast,
flying around the fields quicker than many other dogs. He also entertains
himself with toys, flipping them in the air and enjoying games he invents.
Tig is eager to meet children and settles quickly offering a sit and
shake, loving to be connected to any person, young or old. He would be an
incredible agility dog for a young teenager who really wants to learn
about training. He will happily work for anyone.
Tig is obedient and eager to please but when excited, easily clears your
head, all four feet off the ground, able to give you a lick on your cheek.
He is clearly an athlete. Tig is good with cats and about 40 pounds. He
was a stray found outside a vet office in PA. They kindly took him
into safety and we were contacted to find him a home.
DYLAN found his new
life in a wonderful home where he'll be enjoying flyball and agility,
sports that he will excel in! And, even more importantly, he'll have kids
who love him. Dylan is a kid magnet so he will enjoy a full life of Border
Collie challenges and lots of love, plus canine friends, too. Dylan now
lives in NY.
11 month old Border Collie, Dylan is all energy and ready to go, go, go
like any young BC. He is very eager to bond and wants to interact with
every person he meets. He is super friendly and outgoing, curious about
everything. We jokingly call him 'our resident rocket scientist'. He
can learn anything in an instant, offering the behaviors he knows in hopes
he will do what will earn him the treat. He'd excel in clicker training
and could be taught pretty much anything. Dylan is high energy and can
jump straight up, all four feet off the floor and is super fast, so will
need an outlet or his mind and body. Dylan is a classic BC, with all
the traits that make this breed so much fun and so challenging - He is
smart, focused and very affectionate, a real loving boy. Dylan is
not good with cats and 35 pounds. He came to the Farm from a
Long Island shelter where he had been a stray.
FLYNE came to the Farm
and as soon as he smiled for the camera, he caught the eye of an adopter
waiting to come to visit dogs. They saw him and cleared their schedule
immediately to drive from Massachusetts to meet him. Of course, he won
their hearts in person, just as he had with his sweet face. Flyne will be
happily busy with his new family playing and visiting the Cape for some
beach time too! Flyne loved them!
FLYNE: A 1 year old Border Collie,
Flyne is very very people oriented. He loves everyone and wants to say
hello the minute he sees someone new, a very happy friendly boy. Flyne is
a gentle, more sensitive Border Collie, not overly intense, just good
natured and easy going. He is smart and observes everything around him,
taking in all the activity. He is a confident dog, settling into new
situations well. He is also great with dogs though would put people at the
top of his list of importance. He would enjoy a canine friend but would be
happiest accompanying his person in their life. Flyne is about 40 pounds
and not yet tested on cats. He was relinquished to the Farm due to
lack of time for him, from NY.
KATIE found the
perfect life with another canine friend who is a racer and chaser like she
is, plus she'll be her big sister, teaching her the ropes about life,
which is Katie's favorite role. A sweetheart of a girl, she won her new
guardian's heart quickly and happily headed to her new life in upstate NY
where she'll have lots of land for exploration and play.
KATIE: A 2 year old Border Collie,
Katie is an incredibly affectionate people oriented girl. She loves to be
with a person. She also loves toys and can pick up speed while chasing,
turning her into a flash of black fur. She tosses the toys up and around,
making up her own games, too. Katie would be a great sport candidate or a
wonderful companion in an active home. Katie is very gentle, sometimes a
little shy, but, before long, she is right in your lap for attention. She
also loves to play water games, catching the water as it comes out of the
hose, a classic Border Collie trait. She is good with other Border Collies
but best with submissive dogs since she is like most female Border
Collie's, a stronger girl. She is good with cats and about 40 pounds.
Katie will be placed in a rural setting or with a hard fence since she has
an interest in cars which usually comes from boredom in her previous life.
Katie was a stray in Ohio transferred to a NY colleague hoping she
would work geese but felt she would be better as a companion.
ROSIE found her
forever home with two canine friends, one adopted from the Farm six years
ago who now is happy to have a friend to run and play and chase. Rosie
loved her new guardians instantly and was the perfect match to make a
great trio. Rosie now lives in CT.
ROSIE is a gorgeous 4
yr old, curly haired border collie. Rosie will gladly chase a tennis
ball, but prefers interacting with her person. She loves a good
snuggle, or a run, or car ride, or casual walk with her person. Rosie
loves the water and will play in it, endlessly entertaining herself, happy
as can be. Rosie is cautious when experiencing new things, so will need a guardian to help
build her confidence and independence. Rosie does fine with other
dogs that understand female border collies like to be in
"charge" when necessary. Rosie is about 55 lbs, and will
lose some of that weight at the Farm. She is good with cats, but
will chase if they run. Rosie was a stray in a NJ shelter.
COURTNEY found a
wonderful life with 22 acres to explore, other canine friends and a loving
guardian who fell in love the minute she met her and knew she was meant to
be with her. Courtney will get a chance to try sports but most
importantly, spend her time as the constant companion to her new FurMom.
She now lives in NY.
COURTNEY: A 4 month old Border Collie,
this little pup is unbelievable...a real BC, all ten pounds of her. She
jumps up onto high beds, on the back of the couch, easily up onto end
tables....she is more agile than some of the adult dogs we've had in
rescue. And, she is absolutely fearless about everything, including
adult dogs. She can read other dogs well and knows when to stay out
of the way or when to instigate play. She fit into a pack of nine
adult Border Collies as if she'd lived with them her whole life.
Courtney also loves all toys and is always
walking around with a toy in her mouth, even if it's bigger than her.
Like most female Border Collies, she is also showing her strength
with a little eye to a dog so she gets them to leave her toy alone.
Looks like Courtney is on her way to running an empire, and if she's
in the right hands, she will be fantastic to experience as she
matures. She is also a real lovey, always in your lap (that's why
she jumps onto the back of the couch!) and always wanting to sleep next to
you or lay on you, that is, unless she's occupied with toys or other dogs.
She is in love with everyone but also quite the thinker. Her little
wheels are turning all the time. Courtney is impressive. She is what makes
this breed so amazing.
She will ONLY be placed in a border
collie experienced home and with other Border Collies. She
would be a fantastic agility candidate!!! Courtney is
being fostered in NJ and can be seen at the Farm
CASS: A 2 1/2 year old
Border Collie, Cass is a love bug and also, all action. She loves to play
and is eager to learn. Cass if very sweet and an easy companion. She gets
along with other dogs well and she is good with cats but herds them so
needs border collie savvy cats. She'll be coming to the Farm shortly and
we'll update her bio then. She was a stray taken into a shelter in
CASS & LUCKY found
their forever home together, absolutely happy to play with each other:
Lucky herding Cass and Cass making up chase games with the ball - it was
like they had lived together their whole lives - fantastic to see!
Their new guardians fell in love with Lucky soon as they met him, their
hearts linked together cause he is THE sweetest guy ever and then when
Cass came out, they were thrilled to meet her and see how she would be
lead dog for Lucky and both played so well. They fell in love quickly with
this duo and knew they could provide a fabulous life for both, playing in
the yard, hiking and even agility for Cass who would love that. Cass &
Lucky now live in NY.
LUCKY: A 2 year old
Border Collie with ABCA papers, Lucky is a wonderful dog with lots of
energy to play, play, play. He loves other dogs and gets so excited
herding other Border Collies, it's great to watch him in action. He is the
sweetest guy, so soft and gentle, a wonderful spirit. Lucky is blind from
birth so is happiest with other dogs since he's lived his life with them
around. He adjusts beautifully to new situations, bumping around a bit but
then he's amazing how quickly he is oriented to where he lives and how
things work. Lucky most likely can see shadows since he can navigate
around trees outside and inside pretty well. His foster Mom says the
cutest thing to see is when he stares up at the sky, cocking his head in
that Border Collie way, with a big BC smile. He fits right into a new life
like he'd lived all his life, settling down in the house, going right into
his crate to eat and enjoying all the affection he can get. He wags his
tail every time he hears his name! And, he'll follow you wherever you go
hearing your voice and being rewarded with treats. Lucky is good with
cats. He was relinquished to the Farm due to a move where his former
guardians had to find new homes for all their pets. His original guardian
went to buy a Border Collie and the person at the Farm in PA offered her
Lucky as well or he was going to be euthanized. Fortunately, Lucky
was very lucky that day and now is looking for his next step in life,
hoping to share his love again. Lucky
is in a foster home in central NY and can be seen at the Farm.
BAER found his forever
home with former adopters from the Farm who wanted to add another Border
Collie. They love the breed and have always had a soft spot for the mature
dogs who need a loving life, having been abandoned for one reason or
another. They sparked instantly to Baer and his sensitive, sweet nature
and knew he would fit perfectly in their lives and he would have a blast
racing around the nearby fields and being their constant companion. He now
lives in NY - he'll be turning 9 this fall, happily adored in his new
BAER: An 8 year old Border Collie, Baer
is a wonderful dog, really great with everyone he meets and so friendly.
He is very, very good natured and bonds quickly, enjoying the company of
anyone who enjoys him, too. He is smart and focused though not as intense
as a young BC, happier to be a companion. Baer is also gentle and comical
with a great personality. He is great with other dogs and also with cats. He
was relinquished to the Farm from a PA guardian who had him since 8 weeks
old but due to hospitalization, could no longer keep him.
KOTA: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie,
Kota is a sweetheart, friendly to everyone she meets. She loves people and
is happiest in the middle of everyone, sharing her love and getting
affection. She is smart, lively and playful but not overly intense. She's
a wonderful companion but needs an outlet for her energy since she's a
young BC. She is good with cats and great with other dogs, absolutely
loves to play, play, play. She is about 30 pounds. She came to the
Farm from PA guardians who divorced. She had lived with them since a
BACH & KOTA
found their forever home together where they have the best of both
worlds...they each have their own boy who will play with them endlessly
and love them completely and they have each other for continual chasing,
wrestling, and racing, all of which these two LOVE to do. A remarkable
home for these two sweet Border Collies! They now live in PA truly living
the best life!
BACH: An 11 month old Border Collie,
Bach is all about fun, a big toy boy. He just loves to play and chase
other Border Collies and would enjoy a canine friend. Bach is easy going,
sweet as they come and loves people. While he has lots of energy, he's not
as intense as other young BC's so could easily thrive in a companion home.
Bach is smart and focused and willing to learn. Bach likes the water and
will play and swim. He is about 35 pounds and
is ok with cats. He was living in a less than ideal situation, tied
out all day, from CT.
LEGO found his forever
home with his foster Mom who decided after months of watching him play his
crazy water games and laughing out loud, he needed to stay. Lego is a
character, full of quirks and worries but at his now official new home, he
relaxed, loved to play with the other dogs and continually enjoying water
games! Always one to make everyone at the Farm chuckle too, Lego
needed a very special place to call home and he found it! We are very
thankful to his new fosterMom for her kind heart for this sweet but
challenging boy. He now lives in NY.
LEGO: A 6 year old Border Collie, Lego is a
friendly, good natured Border Collie, who likes people and loves the ball.
He is a really even tempered dog, a wonderful companion personality. He is
good with other dogs though could be happy as a solo dog with his person
or living with another easy going dog. Lego knows lots of tricks and
apparently loves vanilla ice cream which he used to get every other
weekend cause he was such a good boy. He will herd cats though not hurt
them and is about 45 pounds, typical in size for his breed. Lego came from
PA where he had been living in a very small home and a 12 x 12 yard for
the last 6 months when his previous guardians moved so his new guardians
felt it best to find him a better life.
YORK found his forever
home without ever leaving the Farm. He went down to join the volunteer
cook at Camp Border Collie for Kids and within a few days, they were fast
friends. He bonded quickly with both father and daughter and joined in all
the kid's activities at the dining pavilion, even gaining the name
"the Duke of York" since he was such a good diplomat for dogs,
making all the kids feel comfortable. His wonderful sweet nature won their
hearts so off he'll go to his new home in MA where he'll have a canine
friend and TONS of love. Sweet York is a long way from NYC and happily on
a new journey as a beloved friend.
YORK: A 9 year old Border Collie mix,
York is a lover, sweet, sweet, sweet. He just wants to be with his person
and will happily follow you around. He also loves to explore the land and
trots around enjoying each and every nook and cranny at the Farm. He is
great with other dogs, a very submissive boy, only eager to say hello.
York is so good natured, it's hard to think of anything to report other
than good news. And, the best news is that he made it to the Farm.
York was abandoned in a NYC shelter due to
health concerns, then adopted out and returned because no one wanted to
undertake his health needs. We did and boy are we glad we stepped in to
help. York had a perianal growth that we removed which did turn out to be
cancer. Fortunately, our vet surgically removed the mass and through
ultrasound checking and chest xrays, we've found he is cancer free! York
has a long and happy life ahead.
Special thanks to Bonnie Yurga, Jean
Werkheiser, Nancy Vrabel, Debbie Grassi, and Elana Hulsey for helping
Dunkin get to the Farm safely
DUNKIN: A 5 month old
Border Collie came to the Farm from a NJ guardian who was moving. Soon as
he arrived, he was ready to go, into balls, frisbees and any toy that
moved. Lucky for Dunkin, an adopter was looking for a pup for flyball and
thanks to other adopters from the Farm, he came to visit. Soon as he met
Dunkin, he knew he was the one to add to his family so off Dunkin went to
a new life filled with activities fit for a Border Collie. He'll have lots
of fun making up games with his new Border Collie friend as well as
learning flyball! We had previously taken Dunkin's father, Bud, and if Bud
is any indication, Dunkin will be an incredible athlete, too. He now lives
JACK found his family
and boy was he happy!....he played and played and played, chasing after
endless toys and balls. He was so thrilled to have his own kids and
enjoyed plenty of belly rubs and gave lots of kisses. He had a great day
at the Farm with the whole family and then spent the night at the nearby
Inn, sharing what will be many evenings including cuddling in the bed, as
cozy as could be. Jack will certainly enjoy his new life, filled with love
and play. He now lives in Massachusetts.
JACK: A 7 year old Border Collie,
Jack is an amazing athlete and a ball fanatic! Any ball of any kind, he
wants.. wiggly giggly balls; jolly balls; tennis balls, you throw
it, he'll play with it. Jack is all Border Collie through and through,
focused, fast and fun. He is happiest playing and will easily join in any
herding games with other dogs or playing with a person. Jack is
fantastic off leash and would be a great hiking partner. He also likes the
water for retrieving balls and wouldn't take much to learn to swim!. He is good with
other dogs and lived with a female BC. He is about 45 pounds and
good with cats. Jack was relinquished from PA due to a divorce.
KIRBEY headed out to
his new life with another Border Collie, Kylie, adopted from the Farm not
long ago. He won his new guardian's heart just like Kylie had and she knew
she couldn't leave without him. He and Kylie raced around the fields at
the Farm like gazelles, just gorgeous to watch and then played their own
style of doggie wrestling, a perfect duo. His new guardian was quickly
charmed by this sweet guy and chuckled when she realized she had adopted a
dog who drooled heavily in car rides cause that is exactly what Kylie
does, too...a perfect pair on all fronts! Kirbey now lives in CT and will
be very adored, a long way away from a farmer's stall covered in poop!
Kirbey will be hiking and swimming and enjoying the great outdoors as well
as tons of ball and frisbee.
A special thanks to Lori Coon and her
family who fostered Kirbey, helping him become a more confident Border
Collie ready to start his new journey! They did a fantastic job!
A 9 month old Border Collie, Kirbey is learning that life is good and
beginning to trust that people are fun and loving. He is an adorable,
friendly boy who needs a patient person and other dogs to keep him
blossoming. Kirbey's innocent, puppy-like nature is so endearing and
he will surely be a wonderful companion as he matures. He already knows
that the other dogs are so much fun, cause he runs and wrestles and plays
in his room all day and outside, too. Kirbey is a very gentle, sweet, soft
Border Collie who deserves a ton of love and a patient guardian who will
help him continue to gain his confidence. He will be placed with another
Border Collie or other dogs to help build his confidence. He loves to
play. He is about 30 pounds and good with cats. We rescued
Kirbey from a filthy horse stall where he had been neglected, all alone,
living on a farm. His good nature is intact. All he needs is
time and guidance.
TOOTSIE found the
perfect home for her...filled with other Border Collies so she has
lots to do, herding them in circles and guardians who understand her needs
to make her happy. She'll be their constant companion, enjoying trips in
their mobile home to agility trails and traveling wherever they go.
Tootsie fit this group beautifully, well versed in living with a crowd of
busy Border Collies. She loved the attention of her new guardians, too,
happy to rest her head on their laps for petting. She now lives in NY.
TOOTSIE: A 2 year old Border Collie,
Tootsie is a gentle girl who loves being with you for attention but is so
happy being able to run, run, run. She is gorgeous to watch as she takes a
full gallop across the fields, with a toy in her mouth or just on her own.
Tootsie loves other dogs and will herd them so would be happy with another
Border Collie friend or as a solo dog in an active home. She is very eager
to bond and loves people. She's become a very confident girl, eager to be
in the middle of the action and loving attention. Tootsie is about 35
pounds and good with cats. She came to the farm from a NJ
shelter where she had been a stray.
TIKKER found his
forever home with wonderful guardians who loved his good nature and
quirkiness racing for the ball in full Tikker style! He had spent time
with his newFurDad last week and his four new canine friends so when his
FurMom came to meet him along with one of his new canine friends, Deja, it
was a done deal. Tikker landed a great new life with lots to do, tons of
love and even his own lake house for swimming and exploring. He'll have a
blast as their companion in his new doggie paradise in NY. We've already
heard that Tikker now back to his original name, Tucker, slept in the
crook of the arm of his new guardian all night long, went into the water
splashing in the waves and is feeling at home already.
TIKKER: A 2 1/2 year old Border Collie
mix, Tikker is a sweet boy who loves to play ball. He is quite comical,
happily enjoying retrieving over and over again, very playful and quite a
character. He is a more sensitive dog and feels most comfortable with
someone he knows for awhile. He loves to explore and go for walks, happy
to be with his person. Tikker is smart and attentive but not intense, more
of a companion, than non-stop working BC. He is good with cats and good
with other dogs. Tikker could live as a solo dog or with another Border
Collie mix. He is about 40 pounds. He was given up to due health
issues in the family and issues with the German Shepherd.
