good natured Jensen found his forever home with an active family
that loves to camp, hike, run, kayak, snowshoe, cross country ski and
everything else outdoorsy so he'll have a very active life of fun and love
together. Jensen bonded instantly with the kids of course and happily
trotted off to their car to begin his new life! Jensen now lives in
central New York.
JENSEN: A 1 1/2 year old petite Border
Collie, Jensen is adorable, really really sweet and is eager to be with
people all the time. He just loves affection, getting it and giving it, to
anyone and everyone. He is very playful, loves toys and wants to run and
romp with other dogs, especially other young dogs. He is very fast and
could easily do agility, also because he is small in size and very lean.
Jensen is very smart, attentive to everything around him and responsive to
people and could easily be trained. He is good with cats. Jensen
was a stray in a shelter in Camden, New Jersey.
found his forever home the minute he met his new guardian...it was one of
those moments where it's easy to see that dogs pick their people! Luckey
will now enjoy a new life living right on a lake which is perfect
considering he's a big water boy! He'll also get to go everywhere with his
new person, a constant companion! Luckey now lives in upstate NY.
LUCKEY: A 3 year
old tri-color Border Collie, Luckey is a friendly, easy going dog,
eager to be with people. He's very sweet and good natured and has a
balanced energy level, ready to play yet easily settles down. He is good
with other dogs, especially females, loving to race around and run.
When he walks, he trots with a graceful prance, a joy to watch.
Luckey knows sit and will come when called and would benefit from more
obedience training. He would be best
with older children or in an adult home. Luckey is about 40 pounds,
typical in size for a border collie. He loves playing in water and
will happily jump into the washtubs at the farm and probably into creeks
or lakes, given the chance. Luckey is very interested
in cats so probably would not be good, though it seems more like active curiosity,
but it is strong. Luckey was relinquished
by his guardian who did not have enough time for him.
found her forever home with a guardian who loves agility and will give her
a chance to learn and regularly compete. She joins three other border
collies in her new life and a handful of cavaliers cared for by her new
dog-loving guardian! Luna now lives in central NY.
LUNA: A 2 year old purebred Border
Collie with ABC papers, Luna is extremely sweet and loveable and
brilliant. She is also extremely agile, a great candidate for agility or
flyball. (Luna is taking agility lessons now and is a natural - excelling, fearless with the
course obstacles.) She
loves to chase balls and could probably easily learn frisbee.
She is gentle with children; chases cats but will not harm them. She
gets along with all dogs and loves to play. Like many border collies, Luna
will chase cars so must be in a contained yard. She is in need of a
forever home since she has already been in three homes. Luna was
originally rescued from people who kept her tied to a coffee table all day
because they didn't know how to handle her herding instinct and the owner
prior to that had her in a hallway for most of the day with no exercise or
attention. Luna settles nicely in the house, is crate trained and is
36 pounds. Her current guardian adopted her
five months ago and has now fallen ill and cannot keep her or her other
young dog. Luna was living in Point Pleasant NJ Luna is being fostered in New Jersey and
can be met at the Farm in NY or at the foster home.
Jacke found his forever home on 10 acres next to a river with
guardians who are devoted dog lovers and ready for an active border
collie. They've had his picture
hanging up in their house for weeks waiting for the day they could meet
him! Jacke will be hiking, biking and spend lots of time outdoors
exploring the land and even chasing the ducks they live there. Jacke now
lives in West Virginia, near the Pennsylvania border.
JACKE: Jacke is a marvelous 1 year old
purebred Border Collie with all the athletic nature typical of the breed.
He absolutely loves toys, is very very fast and could easily excel in
agility or other sports. He has very fast coordination with every move he
makes, possibly because he is petite in body size and long-legged. Jacke
is also a really affectionate dog, jumping into your lap for cuddling and
kisses and he loves sleeping side by side, very connected to his person.
He is very friendly and adores everyone he meets and is also good with
other dogs. Jacke would be happy as the solo dog with an involved
guardian and an active lifestyle. He would be best with older children in a sport home or with another young Border
Collie. Jack is good with cats and has been trained on the electric fence. He was given up due to his herding
tendencies so would be best with older children.
natured, mellow Aggie (notice she is very relaxed about her new
life!) is on her way to fun with a new friend, Copper and lots of hikes
and even visits to doggie daycare to play a few days in the week. She is
going to undoubtedly be the hit of the place just as she was for her
guardian who actually helped transport her to the farm and fell in love on
the spot. As soon as she heard Aggie's first adoption didn't work out, she called, eager to make the
trip to the farm to have her join her life forever! Aggie now happily
lives in CT.
AGGIE: A 6 month old Border Collie mix,
Aggie is one sweet girl, very very eager to bond with people. She is happy
to be touched and happy to sit by your side. She also likes to play with
toys though everything is still pretty new to her, like all pups, she'll
need to learn ball games. Aggie is alert and curious but not hyperactive
or difficult as many puppies can be. Since she is a mix, she is also much
more easy going than a purebred border collie. She has not yet been
tested on cats but will probably do just fine since she is so eager to
please. Aggie is not fully grown and it's hard to say how large she will
be, possibly typical 45 pounds or maybe more. Aggie was a stray in
Maya caught the attention of her new guardians as she sped across
the farm, faster than any other dog around! Full of energy and affection,
Maya showed her stuff as only she could- jumping for toys, creating chase
games and happily playing. Maya will be using all her talents in
flyball in her new home in Pennsylvania.
MAYA: A 2 year
old Border Collie, Maya is a very petite girl, smaller
than most we've seen. She is absolutely a sweetheart, too, very
eager to bond with a person and happy to be at your side. She is
however, rather shy in new situations, so will need a patient guardian.
Maya would be happiest as the solo dog and really wants an interactive,
involved dog to human relationship. She must live with a secure fence as
she can be an escape artist so electric fencing would work well. Maya is
good with cats. When she is the only dog, she just loves to
retrieve the ball and is fast and agile in play. She is very
very bright and responsive so could potentially enjoy agility or flyball.
Maya is good with cats. She is about 25 pounds. Maya
was found tied to a boarding kennel door in East Brunswick NJ one morning and thankfully, they
found out about us at the NJ Pet Expo.
found his forever home with a loving family who understand border collies
and thunder phobia and are happy to help him feel safe. Reed now can enjoy
14 acres of beautiful land, a pond and believe it or not, a seat at the
dinner table, along side his furry friend, Rusty and the cats. (we hope to
see that picture cause we know how Reed likes people food!) Reed now lives
happily in PA.
REED: A 4 year old Border Collie, Reed
is a gentle, sweet, good natured dog,
eager to please and be part of activities. He is very attentive to people,
friendly with everyone and great with other dogs. He is not showing heavy
herding instincts or high energy levels. Reed loves affection and will do
best with gentle guardians since he has a history of some heavy handling.
Reed is fine with cats. He is typical in size for most border collies,
about 40 pounds. Reed was relinquished to a shelter in
Pottsville, PA, hard to understand considering his sweet disposition and
eagerness to please.
& FERGUS found a wonderful forever home with loving guardians who
work at home and have plenty of time for frisbee and ball which they
adore! Their dogs are the focus of their lives so Maggie & Fergus will
have tons of attention and plenty of gorgeous countryside with 16 acres to
explore and even their own pond for swimming (which they also love!) They
now happily live in upstate NY. The kids from CAMP BORDER COLLIE FOR KIDS
also got to show off the obedience work they had done with Maggie &
Fergus and proudly join in the adoption!
MAGGIE & FERGUS:
Two gorgeous Border Collies, Maggie, age 6 and Fergus, age 4, love to play
frisbee, ball and interact with people. They are classic border collies, very focused, brilliant and agile. Both are very friendly
with everyone, good with other dogs and just delightful as a pair. A real joy to watch together, they have a very strong relationship,
sharing the same interests. Both are from the same breeder with the same father. Both are great with cats.
Maggie is a bit petite, about 30 pounds and Fergus is more typical in size, about 40 pounds, but lean. They will be placed together and can
easily join any household. Maggie & Fergus were given up in Syracuse
NY due to a move and ill health.
Checkers found his forever home with loving guardians who thought
he was the cutest dog they'd met plus the sweetest, which we know is true.
Checkers will be adored completely in his new life, taking lots of great
walks at the nearby reservoir and get a chance to try being a therapy dog
with his person who works with children with disabilities....we think
Checkers will be a wonderful friend to any child! Checkers now lives in
4 year Border Collie (possibly mix), Checkers is a very easy going,
friendly boy. He wants to be wherever people are and is happy to join in
activities, as long as he gets to go! He is good natured, fairly mellow
and a happy dog. He is fine with other dogs but could
be happy as the solo dog, too. Checkers is fine with cats but is
very food oriented so cannot be fed with them around or expect him to let
them eat nearby. Separation for feeding times is what is needed. He is about 50 pounds, a little
overweight which will go while running at the farm. Checkers
was in a shelter in Long Island after his guardian died, adopted once and
returned because he did not get along with cats.
is going to his new home in California - our second adoption out of state
- because the woman who spent the week with him at Camp Border Collie and
Friends found that life at home just wasn't the same without him by her
side. He'll be the sixth dog in the house, a few are border collies of
course, so he's bound to have plenty to do plus he gets his very own pond
which he absolutely adores...getting Polo out of the water is a challenge!
His new name will be Rio and he'll be happily enjoying a very loving life
soon doing agility and herding.
A 1 1/2 year old purebred
tri-color Border Collie, Polo is all border collie, with strong instincts
and eye. He is incredibly fast, very very focused and instantly responds
to the ball. Polo has been introduced to sheep and geese work
and done beautifully with both. He also excelled in agility, easily
working each of the pieces of equipment, eager to do more. He is very very
smart, engages quickly to respond to people and wants to relate for
work/play. Polo is good with other dogs, and will be placed in a seasoned
border collie home only where he can do agility or herding or flyball,
using all his incredible talents. Polo is good with cats.
He was originally due to come to the farm a few months ago, but his
guardian decided to keep him and then changed his mind, taking him to a
shelter in Higins PA where fortunately he found his way to us since they work with the
farm a great deal.
is joining the Glen Highland Farm pack since he clearly loves our gang and
is thriving at the farm. Connor came to us the very day he turned one year
old in March. He's gone through some tough challenges for such a young dog
and now is on the other side of it all. He happily participated in the
kids camp this summer as well as the adult camp but always seemed most
happy racing, herding and playing with our gang.
At only a little over one year old, Connor has had more than his
share of rough encounters - first being stabbed as a pup by the child in
the house; then severely injured by an SUV at 9 months old; then his 2nd
hip surgery at 12 months old (once he got to the farm); and most recently,
pneumonia and bronchitis which landed him in intensive care at Cornell for
6 days. Connor is a survivor, beating all odds. He is a joyful border
collie, full of spirit and love, truly a delightful friend to everyone he
meets. Those that met him at Pet Expo in NJ know how special he is and
anyone who has met him at the farm has the same reaction. Even the vet
staff at Cornell fell madly in love with him and wanted to adopt him.
Considering his history, we're going to give him time before we move
forward with any decisions about a new life and just consider that this
pup has earned the right to just 'be' without any pressures whatsoever.
Connor wants time to unwind, heal, play and work with the kids at the farm
so will be considered for adoption after August. This is dependent
on what feels right at that time for him. We are deeply thankful to
all who gave generously to support his unexpected, costly medical care.
Our gratitude is enormous.
Roxy found her new home with another intense border collie and a
houseful of shihtzus and scottish deerhounds...she'll have plenty of furry
friends to herd and keep her mind occupied! But, even better, Roxy will be
learning agility and have a serious chance at competing, along with her
fur buddy, Theo. We know we;ll hear great things from this star! Roxy now
lives in New Jersey.
ROXY: A 7 month old purebred Border
Collie with papers, Roxy is a live wire, eager to be involved in
everything. She is very very smart ,observant and likes the activity level
of other dogs and dog play. She is showing some herding instinct and is
also focused on playing ball so will need a savvy bc home in order to
stimulate her adequately. She is a bit shy with initial introductions and
new situations so will need a patient guardian to help build her
confidence. Roxy has not yet been tested on cats. She is a lean build and
long legged for her age but typical in weight for the breed. She was
relinquished to the farm from Rochester where she was overly active with
the children. She will only be placed with older children, if any at
will now happily live in upstate NY for the rest of her life, love dearly
as this sweet poem shows from her caring foster folks who are now her
time has come for us to say,
We'd love dear, sweet Glenna to stay.
If she left us now, it would tear us apart,
Her new name "MacCroi" (Kree) is Scottish for heart.
It's true six dogs are a lot for our house,
But luckily MacCroi is the size of a mouse.
Our pack would be sad if she went away,
‘Cause with her they all love to play.
ride in the car now and don't even drool,
Once I threw up on Dad's leg a warm, smelly pool.
Dad's still a stranger, but I think he's okay,
I sniff at his sock and then run away.
I knew nothing but fear as my only emotion,
But Mom taught me love, trust, and kindness with her constant
I still have a ways to go, but I run with much joy,
Mom's always encouraging me and buying me a new toy.
I come when I'm called now, and I think I'm housetrained,
I measure my short life by all I have gained.
I'll always be grateful for you taking me and my brother in,
Without you, Lovely Lillie, how could my new life begin?
When I think of the Farm, I wag my small tail,
So kindly put up my Big Red 'Adopted' Heart, the check's in the
month old purebred is adorable, incredibly
is very very shy, afraid to interact with people so will need a very
patient guardian. She sits quietly when held, timidly unsure if she is
safe. She responds to love and affection and will be placed with
other dogs and in a knowledgeable border collie home. Glenna was left by the side of the road, unwanted when animal
control in Missouri found them.
