PENNIE: A 10
month old Border Collie mix, Pennie is really very, very sweet and
affectionate and adores people. She's friendly with everyone and
loves to play with other dogs. She has lots of energy and would do
well with another young dog. She is very responsive so should do
well with training and she's eager to please. Pennie also loves to
cuddle, curling up next to you for affection. Pennie enjoys
toys of all kinds and is always eager to play, like any young dog.

(She has beautiful eyes which are hard to see in the pictures) Pennie

found her forever home with a young boy who has been waiting for his furry
friend and fell in love with her! They played ball and quickly
locked their friendship, so off went Josie to Long Island, NY!
JOSIE: A petite
10 month old Border Collie mix (maybe retriever), Josie is a delight, very
very friendly and eager to connect with everyone. Very alert, observant
and sweet, she is a smart girl. She loves to play with toys
and other dogs, wrestling and racing around like young dogs do.
She is easily trainable and learned sit in a few hours so would be very
responsive to training. She is not as big as she looks in her pictures and
will probably not be as large as a retriever. Josie is not good with
cats. She would probably be happiest with another dog since she has lots
of energy to play. Josie was a stray in a shelter due to
found her forever home in upstate New York with two furry friends, two
loving teenage girls and her own family winery where she can meet and
greet all the people who visit, sharing her sweet, friendly good nature!
Plus, now Lindy will happily be busy at work, keeping track of everything
that goes on!
LINDY: A 10 month
old purebred Border Collie, Lindy is truly a bundle of energy, racing
around to check out everything around her! She is very typical of
the breed with her high energy and brilliance. She is always
watching activities, deciding what she wants to do with whatever is going
on - though she's not showing heavy herding tendencies. She is a
very sweet, loving dog and Lindy is also great with other dogs and would
be best in a home with another active, young dog. Lindy is not
interested with cats though may chase if they run. Lindy is about 30
pounds. She was a stray in a shelter.
found his forever home in upstate NY with a new fur buddy - Zeus - a
wonderful, playful lab who found MacDuff, now named Maximus (after
the gladiator) to be his perfect partner in play. They both raced
around the farm, happily together. Maximus also has a great family
with two kids to adore him.
MacDuff: a 6
month old border collie mix, MacDuff is a mellow yet playful pup, eager to
find people to love him. He will be by your side happily going
everywhere with you or playing with another young dog which he also loves!
He's a gentle dog, willing to please and give love, a very sweet
boy. MacDuff will need obedience, knowing only sit at this point.
He is going to be a bigger dog, maybe mixed with lab but is not jumping up
for attention or throwing his size or weight at dogs or people...he's
quite gentle. MacDuff is about 45 pounds. He was a stray
in a shelter due to be euthanized.
wise and wonderful Nic found his forever home with a great couple
who rescue Golden Retrievers and wanted another Border Collie like they
had years ago. Nic will be busy living with a few dogs as well as
meeting lots of foster Goldens as well as doing therapy work in nursing
homes. We're so happy for Nic who has been with us for 7 months,
waiting for just the right place to share his heart and mind. Nic
now lives in Maryland.
A 2 year old Border Collie mix, Nic is one of the most gentle, more
mellow dogs at the Farm. He's much like a Golden Retriever in
personality, easy going and loves to play with other dogs. But, like
any smart border collie, he is also very alert, observing everything that
goes on, deciding whether he wants to participate or not. Nic can
be a bit shy so he tends to choose you and whether he wants to be with
you, giving kisses and a sweet look that says 'you're okay!'.
Nic responds best to positive encouragement rather than demands, probably
indicative of his past where he may have been man-handled and or
mistreated. He can be leery of men approaching him too quickly, but
once he trusts you, he's absolutely fine. Nic would be happiest
with another dog around to race, play and chase. He really enjoys
dog play and room to run. Nic is about 57 pounds, lean like a
border collie but taller in size. Nic is okay with cats.
Nic was a stray in a local shelter. Nic
is being fostered in northwestern Connecticut
& Meg found their forever home in Pennsylvania, now living with a
loving couple who just adore them completely and fully. We consider
them to be true angels since they felt age didn't matter, in fact, they
wanted to bring this good natured pair into their lives because they were
so gentle, calm and sweet, perfect for their new family and young child.
We know Tom & Meg will share their wonderful hearts forever!
new guardians of Tom & Meg had a bumpy start with their other dog but
felt they wanted to try again because they loved the two of them and it's
now working much better so Tom & Meg now have their forever home!
TOM & MEG:
Two wonderful Border Collies - brother and sister, Tom (the sable one)
& Meg (the black one) have been together since birth and now, at age
7, need a new loving home - together. They are delightful,
incredibly gentle and obedient dogs, never even jumping up to say hello.
Tom and Meg are friendly with everyone, good with all dogs and absolutely
love children, having grown up with kids. They are well trained to
sit, come when called and are good on leash. Both have strong
herding instincts yet are fine with cats, chasing but not harming them at
all. They've recently gone to a foster home for care and have
quickly (within 2 days) acclimated into life there without any adjustment
- they're so adaptable and eager to please - they happily moved right in.
They both have long coats, probably due to being outside a great deal.
They have been very well cared for and well loved. Both are about 50
pounds. Tom & Meg were given up when the guardian had to
return to England.
found his forever home with the best of both worlds - he'll be physically
active on their boat, able to swim til his heart's content (Brody LOVES
water) and he'll be able to work his wonderful magic as a therapy dog in

to bond with someone. He is very affectionate and just loves the company

the breed! It was instant love for both person and dog as Lena and her new
furry friend played tug of war, negotiated for toys and enjoyed a trail
walk at the Farm. Lena now lives in Connecticut.
LENA: A 10 month
old petite purebred, Lena is brilliant, alert and ready to go, showing
strong border collie instincts. She is very loving and wants to be
with people and she also could thoroughly enjoy agility, frisbee or being
trained in any other dog sport. She shows herding tendencies and
will need an outlet mentally and physically. Another border collie
would be important for her activity level. Lena is very responsive
to training and will do well in whatever is presented to her.

walking. Dayze now lives in upstate NY
DAYZE (Daisy): A
beautiful 5 year old purebred with papers, Dayze is a sweetheart, very
loving and easily connects with everyone she meets. She is very, very
smart, observant and responsive to training. With only an
introduction to agility, she did beautifully. She already knows sit, comes
when called, gives kisses and is good on leash. She's also trained
on the invisible fence. Dayze loves to play ball and is very fast
and very accurate with the classic border collie eye. She's good
around other dogs but since she's been a solo dog, she'd be happy in a
home without other dogs or with one that is not pushy in her space.
Dayze has been well loved and is most fond of adults and older children,
rather than young ones who she tends to herd. She is not good with cats.
Dayze is about 40 pounds, typical in size for the breed. She
was relinquished due to her reactions with young children in a suburban
Kady found her forever home with another Border Collie in a loving dog
family where the dogs are the focus of their life. And, they just loved
Kady and her sweet nature! She'll be trying out agility as well as
spending lots of time in a nearby lake which means Kady will be very very
happy...she LOVES water! Kady is now living in New Jersey.

border collie mix, Kady is a wonderful, fun loving, friendly pup.
She completely loves playing with other dogs and is eager to play with all
toys anytime, anywhere. She loves kids and loves attention.
Kady is very people oriented and would be fine in a family and especially
happy with another young dog. Kady is doing beautifully with her
obedience work, learning sit, down, stay and comes when called.

be wherever you are. She has not been tested on cats yet. Kady

The brilliant and talented Petey will now live happily in an agility home,
with another furry friend and two guardians who are committed to enjoying
his incredible mind and sweet nature, keeping him busy with a dogsport
that he will love. They had a chance to introduce him to the agility
equipment at the Farm and after seeing him zip through the tunnel, prance
over the dog walk and easily tackle whatever they showed him, they knew
he'd have a blast with them! Petey now lives in western NY.
PETEY: A 2 year
old purebred Border Collie, Petey is all motion, ready to go in a second
and very very fast! He's a sweet, loving dog who wants to be with
people but more than that, he wants to play, move and race around.
Petey would be best with another Border Collie or active with agility or
flyball. He absolutely loves toys and is eager to interact with
anyone interested in playing with him, otherwise, he'll make up his own
games with other dogs at the Farm. Petey is very smart and very
obedient, knows sit and comes when called. He is highly trainable
for any dog sport. Petey does not like being moved by his collar and
will warn you with a growl so will not be placed with young children and
due to his energy level, will be best in a home with adults who have had
border collies. Petey is a wonderful, good natured, lively dog,
typical of the breed. Petey is only interested in cats when they
run. He is about 40 pounds. Petey was
in a shelter when rescued.
found her forever home with a loving guardian who is devoted to agility
and fell in love with her! Pickles now happily lives in upstate NY.
PICKLES: A 2 1/2
year old purebred tri-color Border Collie, Pickles is a very sweet and
smart girl, interacting easily with people. She is a classic Border
Collie with high energy levels and interested in herding cars and bikes so
will need a fenced yard. She loves to play with toys and will pick up
a toy, run around the house, throwing it in the air, amusing herself for
hours. She loves to give hugs. If you are standing, she will approach
you, and jump up on you. When you ask her to get down, she drops her front
paws, but then places her head on you, as if she is trying to cuddle.
She is also very good with the small dogs, cats, and birds. She has never
threatened any of them. Pickles was trained on an electronic fence, and is
very predictable on the barrier. She is about 50 pounds so has a bit to loose which is now doing with all
the running with other dogs. Pickles was relinquished due to lack
of time for her. She is being fostered in Buffalo, NY.
A stunning red & white Border Collie, Heidi has a wonderful story of
finding her forever home INSTANTLY!! Taken in by an animal control
officer, her care and living conditions had been horrible: She was chained
on a short chain in a rural home, completely matted, extremely thin. Her
ribs were just jutting out, probably a combination of worms, pacing and
bad food. Her doghouse was basically in the middle of a mud puddle,
so she was always cold, wet and dirty. Her coat was very matted.
When bathed at the shelter when she originally came in, and after combing
mats out, the water was just pure brown for a good five minutes.
Needless to say, Heidi needed to be rescued. Fortunately, the
shelter called Glen Highland Farm and we quickly arranged transport. One
of our adopters volunteered to help and to her surprise and pleasure, fell
in love with her, as did her family. Her call asking to keep Heidi
came within an hour of meeting her. An incredible dog, filled with
life, she played frisbee, ball and raced around, like the happiest dog in
town. Heidi now lives with a wonderful dog family (they adopted Tess
recently) where she'll do agility and use all her brains and beauty to
enjoy a life where she is totally adored!!!! Talk about angels!!!
She definitely had one over her shoulder that day!
Sweet little Mackenzie found her forever home with a border collie lover
who just fell in love with her within moments of meeting. Spending
time with all the pups, she just 'knew' that Mackenzie was the one she'd
been longing to find! Mackenzie now lives in Connecticut and
no longer has to worry that no one cares for her....she's completely
found his forever home with another furry friend and a loving border
collie guardian who feels Bailey is the sweet, good natured dog she was
looking for! Bailey endlessly plays with his blue ball at his new
home in Ct.
BAILEY: a 6 year
old purebred, Bailey is a blast! He loves to play ball, play in the
water and go wherever you are! He's game for pretty much anything
and eager to be with people. Bailey is very friendly and very
affectionate, loves giving kisses and getting hugs. He is fine with
other dogs, having spent his life with a female border collie or could be
the solo dog in an active home. He is very obedient and eager to
please. Bailey is about 60 pounds. He was relinquished
due to allergies of a new child in the family.
OUR VERY OWN SNOW DOG!!
MARCO, known affectionately known as
Marco Polo because he's about to begin real adventures since he's going to
be doing films and commercials! Marco is now the 2nd to Nana, (next to
him) from Snow Dogs (her real name is Fly) and he'll be doing all the
physical stunts and some of the amazing snow scenes, maybe even on camera
every now and then, too. Plus, he'll be doing his own commercials as well
as living happily with three other dogs and his new guardian in New
Jersey. We're all very excited to watch for Marco in TV and films!
MARCO: A 2 year
old Border Collie (maybe mix), Marco is very friendly and very playful.
He loves balls and toys and enjoys retrieving but mostly, he enjoys being
with people. Marco wants to be in all the action, eager to go
anywhere and do anything with his person. He's fine with other dogs
but would be just as happy as the solo dog as long as he was included in
lots of activities. Marco is also very obedient, he sits upon
command as well as for treats and is good on leash. He would be
happiest with in an active household. Marco is good with cats.
Marco was relinquished to a shelter because he was unhappy from
being tied out all day.
found her forever home with the family that was fostering her for us!
Lucky for her that we asked for some special help at the farm because
Buffie now has her own fun trips to the lake (she loves the water) and has
a new best furry friend, their other rescue border collies! Buffie now
lives in upstate NY.
BUFFIE: A 3 1/2
year old Border Collie (maybe mix), Buffie is an engaging dog, eager to be
involved in everything that's going on around her. Yet, she can
easily relax and calm down, happy to be by your side. Buffie is good
with other dogs and would be happiest with another dog to play with,
rather than being alone. She
lived with three children in a townhouse without a yard so will need a
place for lots of exercise in a new home. She is happiest playing,
running and actively interacting. Buffie would be a great candidate for
agility or flyball since she is fearless, loves to jump, climb, go through
obstacles besides catching frisbees that are tossed straight up as well as
balls! She is a happy dog, knows sit, down and is trained on the
invisible fence. She rides well in the car, likes the
water and loves to play with balls. She is about 38 pounds, typical
in size for the breed. Buffie is not good with cats. Buffie was given up due
to lack of time to exercise her properly.

ball! Hogan now lives in upstate NY.
HOGAN: A 10 month
old Border Collie Mix, Hogan is easy going, friendly to everyone and very
eager to bond with people. He's playful, very good with other dogs
and wants to spend as much time cuddling as possible. He will surely
blossom once he's in his forever home. Hogan knows sit and is okay
on leash though will benefit from consistent obedience. He's a
gentle dog and can fit with other dogs easily. Hogan was
returned to the shelter where he had been adopted at 3 months of age.
found his forever home with another border collie who upon meeting, raced
around the farm in a fast game of chase - it was a match made in heaven!
Reece's new guardians just loved his affectionate nature and of course,
the playful match of two young border collies worked beautifully.
Reece now lives in New Jersey.
REECE: A 10 month
old Border Collie, Reece is an incredibly smart, responsive dog, ready to
relate to everything around him. He wants to connect with a person
who focuses on him and he will then, perform in whatever way asked.
Eager to please, he offers a sit and down instantly and comes when called.
Reece is a very high energy, young dog who would excel in agility since he
can easily scale a 7 foot fence, without much effort at all. He will only
be placed in a home with invisible fencing. His main interest is
people so he will be very loyal in bonding with someone and will be
unlikely to leave their side. Reece would be good with another dog
though it needs to be a young, easy going, energetic match for him.
Reece is about 40 pounds, typical in size and is not good with cats.
Reece was given up
due to his escape artist tendencies.
is happy as can be in his new home with guardians who absolutely adore
him. He now lives with another dog adopted from the farm, Jesse and
another border collie mix, Maggie plus two kids who thought Mingo fit
their life perfectly. They met him at Camp Border Collie &
friends and within 15 minutes, knew Mingo needed to join their family.
Mingo now lives in Connecticut
MINGO: A 5 month
old Border Collie (mix?), Mingo is a precious pup and very sweet,
easy-going and friendly. He is very people oriented and wants to
cuddle and be with someone all the time. He's great with other young
dogs, loving to race around and play with toys. Mingo is very
responsive to interaction with a person so will be very trainable as he
always makes eye contact and aims to please. He's about 20 pounds,
typical in size for his age. Mingo was a stray due to be
agile Sadie is squirming to head out and over our paddock fences
for her final run at the Farm cause she safely landed in her forever home
with the flyball teacher from Camp Border Collie & friends. She'd
seen her in June at our first camp and fell in love then but waited a few
months to be sure and upon coming to camp one day, she was informed that
Sadie was about to be adopted. With that news, her face went white
and she said this was the day she had decided to take her home! Well, the
rest is history, as the cliche goes. Sadie, now known as Sparkle,
always belonged in this home and anyone during camp who saw her with her
new guardian and her daughter, would agree. Sadie will be actively
pursuing agility, flyball and everything else athletic. She now
lives in upstate NY with another border collie who also is an agility/flyball
9 month old tri-color, smooth coat purebred, Sadie is an adorable loving border collie
FULL of energy! She is very focused, eager to connect to people and
very, very trainable. She is extremely friendly yet also a bit
insecure so needs activities like flyball or agility to build her
confidence. She is now about 25 pounds, knows sit and comes when
called. Sadie is good with other dogs and would be best with another
Border Collie. Sadie just loves toys of all kinds and is so eager to
interact with you that she will be easily trainable in any dog
sport...she's smart as can be! She will only be placed into a knowledgeable Border
Collie home because of her intensity and energy level and will be placed
in a home with invisible fence or a lot of acreage since she is capable of
crawling up and over almost any height fence. Sadie is
afraid of cats and will avoid them but also growls so will need some good
socialization since she's a pup. Sadie
was relinquished due to lack of time for her.
little Annie found her forever home with her foster Mom who
volunteered to bring her home after she'd been at the Farm for 8 months.
She felt Annie needed to be with people and wanted to give her more home
contact. Well, little did she know that her decision to help would
lead to Annie's new life forever. It was quickly apparent that Annie
wanted to stay, so she joined the family, along with their border collie,
Casey, and now lives in southern New Jersey. The decision to have
Annie stay came to fruition at Camp Border Collie & friends when her
new guardian realized that she just couldn't leave the Farm without her!!
Way to go little Annie!
5 year old border collie/jack russell mix, Annie is a pistol, ready to run,
jump, play and be in the center of all activities! She is adorably
affectionate and loves people. She'll jump with a big leap right into your
lap for attention and kisses. Since Annie is a combination of two
highly intelligent, high energy breeds, she needs exercise and activities
to keep her busy. She is not going to be happy sitting quietly
at your feet all day.
Annie is fine with other dogs, of all
sizes. She has had basic obedience but needs consistent
reinforcement since she is so spirited and cannot be trusted off-leash at
this time. Her previous guardian crated her for 8 hours a day and in
the evening so Annie will do best now where she has more freedom to be
active. She's good
on leash, walking closely with you, just thrilled
to 'see the world'! She is approximately 25 - 30 pounds and very petite.
Annie is not good with cats because she is very pushy and curious,
disturbing the cat, though will not hurt them. (for those interested
in agility, Annie is 13 1/2" at the withers) ANNIE
relinquished by guardian due to energy level. Annie
is being fostered in southern New Jersey.
landed the perfect border collie home, working on a real farm! He
has incredible natural herding abilities so will be a close companion to
his new guardian all day long, joining him everywhere, as well as
work in helping him move baby calves and other livestock. Duncan
will be living in a loving home as well as working 'til his heart is
content! He has 120 acres of pastures, woodlands, wetlands and a stream to
call his own. Duncan now lives in upstate NY and will soon be starting
sheep herding training with one of the top instructors in the country who
taught at Camp Border Collie & friends this summer.
DUNCAN, a 2 year old
purebred, Duncan is all border collie, brilliant, focused and full of
energy! He is incredibly fast, always tuned into what is going on
and very very responsive to people. Eager to please and bond,
he will be a great companion. He's also great with other dogs, very
easy going and mixes beautifully. Duncan would probably be best with
someone with an understanding of border collies though he's not showing
any herding or nipping traits. Duncan is typical in size, about 40
pounds and he is not good with cats. Duncan would be fine as the solo
dog in a home but will need mental stimulation and a physical outlet for
his classic border collie energy. He mixes fine with other dogs,
too. He was part of a neglect case where 75 dogs were
