Pennie found her forever home with another furry friend who instantly ran around together, chasing around the paddock as if they'd lived together forever!  Pennie also has two wonderful children in her new family and will be doing agility competitively!  Pennie now lives in upstate NY.

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.  Pennie is about 30 pounds.  She is OK with cats. (She has beautiful eyes which are hard to see in the pictures) Pennie was a stray in a shelter.

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 be euthanized

BOBBY:  Bobby found his forever home with another border collie and border collie/lab, both of whom he seemed to enjoy as soon as they were together. He also quickly picked his guardians, laying at the feet of his new furdad, uninterested in moving anywhere else! Bobby now lives in upstate NY where he'll be happily playing lots of ball and frisbee!

BOBBY, a 2 year old purebred rough coat, Bobby is great with people, instantly connects and wants to interact. He will gently jump up and give a hug! He is also very typical of a Border Collie, alert to everything around, ready to move in a split second to 'herd' whatever moves. He is very good with other dogs and would be best engaged with another active Border Collie or with a guardian who is committed to agility or herding. Bobby is very smart and needs an outlet for his mental and physical abilities in addition to the emotional needs of being with someone who adores him. He is good with cats. Bobby will need the safe containment of fencing since he will explore when bored. Bobby is typical in size for a border collie, about 40 pounds. He was relinquished to rescue because his guardian could no longer respond to his needs for interaction.

LINDY 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.

MacDuff 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.

The 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.

NIC:  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

Tom & 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!

Update:  The 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.

Brody 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 hospices (Brody has an incredible heart) so Brody is one happy pup!  Brody now lives in upstate New York.

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 home.

NESSA:  Nessa found her forever home with 5 other dogs, including a few Border Collies, as she settled in with the pack as if she'd been with them all her life.  She'll join a family where dogs are their 'kids', sharing every moment of their lives.  She'll also be training for agility and maybe frisbee.  Nessa now lives in Massachusetts, a long way away from when she was forced to wear a logging chain around her neck rather than a collar!

NESSA:  A 8 month old Border Collie/Aussie mix, Nessa is full of life, ready to go at any moment and very, very friendly.  Nessa is striking in her merle coloring and beautiful golden eyes with a silver fleck in one eye.  She's quick to connect with people and wants to bond with someone.  Nessa will sit next to you, happily content to be with you.  She is very smart, alert and highly trainable.  She is also very active so will need an active guardian and/or another dog for play.  Nessa is a loving dog who will blossom quickly in the right home.  Nessa's sweet nature is amazing considering she was chained outside with such a large chain that her neck was scabbed and balding.  She was a stray in a shelter due to be euthanized.

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.

HEIDI:  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!

Way to go little Annie!

ANNIE:   A 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 levelAnnie is being fostered in southern New Jersey.
