Boisterous Boomer found his forever home with guardians who understand the liveliness of the breed, having a dog from the farm already, Maya now Crickett (camera shy! in the background) so they fell in love with Boomer's wonderful good nature and passion for ball playing! A real athlete, Boomer will get to try agility plus have a great yard for lots of ball play and fun! Boomer now lives in PA.

BOOMER: A 1 year old Border Collie, Boomer is full of energy, eager to learn and very athletic. He has the border collie eye for herding as well as focus for toys or agility. Boomer is very willing to please and works easily for treats as well as praise. He is a loving dog, happy to be with people and friendly and good with other dogs. He is very very smart, alert and will be best in a seasoned border collie home where his emotional, mental and physical needs can be met. Boomer is about 40 pounds,  would be best with cats used to living with Border Collies since he likes to herd them but won't hurt them. He was relinquished by someone living in an apartment without a fenced yard who left him inside most of the day. The Rhode Island shelter contacted us to help with placement. 

LARRY: A 1 year old Border Collie (possibly mix), Larry is a sweet good natured, fun loving dog, ready for play and happy to meet anyone and everyone. He is full of energy so would be best living with other dogs. We will know more about Larry once he comes to the Farm but he can also be met where he is being fostered temporarily in Freehold, NJ.  If interested, please contact the farm. 

PIFF: A 2 1/2 year old Border Collie mix, Piff is a sweet little girl who loves attention and loves to play with toys. She is very friendly, good natured and happy to go anywhere and do anything.

SAGE & JORDAN: A wonderful duo were adopted by caring guardians who have patiently waited for Sage to get healthy in order to bring her to their home. They just felt drawn to be with her and then upon meeting Jordan, decided that this twosome was a perfect pair to have in their lives. Sage perked right up, following Jordan all around, happily 'flirting' in her sweet way and Jordan just felt right at home having a shadow. Trixie, their first dog, found herself in the middle of a literal three ring circus except this one was calm considering both Sage and Jordan are real cuddle bugs happy to be with their people and without interest in chaos. It was a truly sweet moment to see all this unfold and we are so happy that these two now have a great life forever and very very happy that they will grace the hearts of their new people. Their new guardians recently lost their beloved Beau/Brody, adopted from the farm two years ago.  While playing ball in a park, Beau leapt up, hyper-extended to catch a ball and tragically broke his back. A tremendous loss. We know having these two sweet souls, Sage & Jordan, will help heal that loss. 

SAGE:  A petite 13 year old Border Collie, Sage is very gentle, content to lie in the sun on her bed or wander in the paddock, smelling grass and watching the other dogs. She really likes other dogs and is adorable with them, eager to meet everyone. She is a very pretty girl with beautiful white eyelashes, making her face look quite special. She is partially deaf so sleeps a bit later than the other dogs but she is full of spunk and rather comical in a happy go lucky way. She is living in our adoption office so it's not so chaotic which seems to suit her just fine. Sage was very sick when she first arrived and is now healthy and happy. Her eyes are bright and she is full of charm, a remarkable little Border Collie Sweet Sage was wandering the streets of Pennsylvania when she was picked up by Animal Control. We are happy that the Shelter asked us to help because leaving this gentle soul in a shelter just wasn't right. 

JORDAN: A 3 year old Border Collie, Jordan is a character, full of charm and affection, ready for belly rubs.. he'll lay down for a belly rub anytime and anywhere! He is a bit comical, too, always checking out everything and anything going on, then checking back with you to make sure all is's his version of work. He doesn't seem too interested in toys yet, it's more important to make sure all things are in order that are occurring around him...he's full of charm! Jordan is very friendly, a little bit timid at first, then very eager to have lots of attention and happy to give it back, too. He is good with other dogs but could also be happy as the solo dog, as long as his people were around.. he loves being in relationship with someone. Jordan is not yet tested on cats, is about typical in size for the breed, approximately 40 pounds. He was a stray in western NY. 

Charming Chase found a unique forever home...he's in the Coast Guard! Well, not literally but more or less because he'll be with his new guardian 24/7 at a Merchant Marine Academy joining him for his duties on the Search and Rescue Team..  there's even a possibility that Chase will have his own Coast Guard life jacket and go out on calls!  Chase also has a great four acre yard for exploring when at home and will get to do lots of hiking! Chase now lives in upstate NY.

CHASE is a 3 year old Border collie. He is active, playful, easy going, and laid back. He loves to be outside playing fetch. Chase is obedient and knows basic commands such as sit, shake and down. He is curious about everything around him. He is a very affectionate dog.  Chase is happy to be with people and will tell you so by giving you lots of kisses. Chase is a strong dog, mixes with all dogs but would be best with a more easy going fur friend.   Chase needs another young dog for play and  also a good sized yard for running or a similar space for his energy. He is fine with cats.  He weighs approximately 40 pounds and is trained on the electronic fence system.  Chase was rescued from a shelter in Scranton PA.

He is very focused, very smart and also very sweet.

He was relinquished to the farm from PA due to a move. 

Marvelous Mitzy found her forever home where she can play tons of ball and run in the woods a lot because one of her new guardians is a major runner, having been an Olympic athlete. She'll even have two homes since she'll live with his parent's during the week enjoying 2 acres of gorgeous greenery and a nearby golf course for runs and then accompany him for play time on weekends and even to his ski house! A real athlete, she;s found the right home for lots to do! Mitzy now lives in New Hampshire.

MITZY: A 4 year old Border Collie, Mitzy is a ball girl..  she absolutely adores playing ball anytime and anywhere with anyone!  She is great at it, too, able to catch pretty much anything. She has the wonderful talent of also dropping the ball right at your feet, literally in between your feet, and nudging it with her nose to you. Mitzy makes it very easy to play with her! She is very very smart and observant about everything, eager to please and relate to people. She is good with other dogs but could be happy as the solo dog in a home that played ball a lot with her. Mitzy has not yet been tested on cats.  She is about 45 pounds. Mitzy came from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah, taken in as a special request since they have trouble placing Border Collies.

Reo now lives in MA. (picture to come)

REO: A petite 10 month old Border Collie, Reo is a fun loving, happy guy and ready to run and play with other dogs. He just loves to race and make up herding games so would do best with another young Border Collie. He is very sweet and affectionate, happy to have attention and content to sit for pets and love. Reo is young and very playful so would do best with teenage children rather than little ones. He is good with cats. Reo is petite, about 35 pounds. He was relinquished to a Reading, PA shelter due to his puppy actions with little kids.

Sweet Scout found his forever home right where he is being fostered. A very special Border Collie, Scout has emotional needs that linked him to his new foster family in such a strong way that it was clear that it was meant to be his new home. He has two Border Collie friends for life, Dillon and Pegi, who came from the farm, and two great kids who think he's the best buddy to have!

Sweet Spenser found his forever home with special guardians who understand the patience and care needed for this sweet dog. They have another dog from the farm, Bella, and are ready to add a third and just felt drawn to Spenser. They have two wonderful young dogs, a fenced yard and someone home all the time so Spenser will be well cared for and completely adored forever! Spenser now lives in upstate NY.

SPENSER:  A 9 month special needs pup, Spenser is a gorgeous alert boy who absolutely loves dogs and is learning that people are really wonderful, too. Spenser also has a special need beyond love since he is deaf so he will need someone who understands the simple things needed to live with a deaf dog. He is doing well with his foster family and welcomes visitors (human and canine) when they come. He is very social with all dogs, is fine around cats and loves horses. He is progressing with hand signals and has begun the equivalent of clicker training with a vibrating collar. Spenser shows an incredible aptitude for agility and is doing tunnels and the dog walk with no hesitation. He does need to sleep close to his people at night for reassurance. He crates well and loves riding in the car.  Living with a deaf dog is not that different from any hearing dog, it just requires some adjustments in using visual cues and commands rather than typical sounds. Spenser is a very smart, incredibly sweet dog who will be a loving companion for a special person. He will only be placed with other dogs, hopefully a younger one, since he has tons of puppy energy to play, play, play. He will also be placed in a fenced yard only, not electronic fencing.   Spenser is being fostered in CT and can be seen there or at  the Farm.

Comical Andy found his forever home with wonderful guardians who just love that he will explore all their acreage and get a kick out of it!

Andy obviously thought they were the right people for him! He now lives in Vermont.

ANDY: A 3 year old Border Collie mix, Andy is a sweet character. He is full of playful energy and just loves to explore everything and anything..a very curious guy! We always find ourselves chuckling with Andy's antics. Andy is also very very intelligent, observant and will quickly jump into the middle of any activity. Though he is a busy boy, he does settle beautifully for affection, happy to sit next to you on the couch. He just loves being in the center of loving humans. Andy is also great with other dogs and good with cats. Since Andy is a bit of an explorer, he will need to be in a home with an electronic fence since he can dig out when bored (he has not done that at the Farm at all). Andy is about 35 pounds, a little shorter than a typical border collie. Andy was in a NY rescue who needed help placing him so he came to the Farm. 

Sweet Dell found his forever home with wonderful guardians and a unique situation where he'll be with the Mom all day while the daughter goes to work so he'll never be alone!

DELL: A 3 1/2 year old Border Collie, Dell is a sweetheart. He loves people and wants to be with them, happy to say hello to everyone he meets.

Coco now lives in upstate NY on 83 acres and her very own farm, complete with horses and chickens and two caring humans.

COCO: A 6 year old Border Collie, Coco is the sweetest girl, truly loves people and affection. She is friendly with everyone she meets and great with other dogs. She is also very smart and eager to participate in any activity.

ROSIE: A 1 year old smooth coat Border Collie mix, Rosie is a character and full of charm. She is not only uniquely beautiful, she is spirited and fun. She absolutely loves toys of any kind and especially loves to push the large purple ball around the paddock, entertaining herself and everyone else. She is great with other dogs and most definitely would love a young fur friend to pal with, especially her friend Wes.  She would also do best with teenage children rather than young ones since she is a bit mouthy as a youngster. Rosie is about 40 pounds, typical in size. She is good with cats. Rosie came to a NJ shelter as a 4 month old pup, was adopted out and returned recently due to her energy level. The shelter asked us to place her since her behavior was so clearly border collie.
ROSIE & JESSIE went to a new home together, a sweet duo full of affection and tons of personality. Rosie will now have her own little boy for constant ball playing and Jessie will have a loving home that understands her curiosity with everything and anything from all her days on the street, learning to search to survive.

Jessie also loves people and is great with other dogs. She is good with cats. She is about 45 pounds, typical in size. Jessie was a stray from a shelter in upstate NY. Often stray dogs are naturally quite focused on food so her new guardians will have to be patient when she creates some mischief searching through the house a will lessen with time once she understands her meals will always be there.

MEGGY: A 4 month old Border Collie mix, Meggy is a bundle of energy, sweetness and brilliance rolled into one. She is ready to do anything with you and eager to learn. She loves racing with other dogs as well as a cuddle in your lap. Meggy is a classic puppy with mouthiness and lots of play needs so will only go to a home that understands how to manage a high energy, smart pup. She will not be placed with young children since she would benefit most from the guidance of adults or older teenage children who can offer consistency in direction. Meggy is about 25 pounds, typical in size for this age and not yet tested on cats. She was from a NY shelter near the farm, a stray picked up by animal control. 

Sweet Barney found his forever home right where he is being fostered! No surprise to us in a way because when they picked him up the first day, they said this one won't be going back! Here is the email about Barney today:  "Once again, as you might have figured out, the complete family o' Fitzgerald has fallen in love.  Yes, we have fallen under the spell of Barney and his quiet acknowledgements of affection, and his head butts for pats.  I know it is a lot to ask, but is there a possibility he might become a forever Fitzgerald?  Five dogs- we must be nuts- but I swear, once you get to 3, it is over anyway- what is one more?  You're still vacuuming hair, cleaning accidents and most importantly, given the privilege of knowing and loving another gentle soul."  We are so happy to say that Barney is staying in this loving home, forever safe, never to be cast out for any reason. Thank you Margaret and Mike for loving this boy and the other two you adopted from the Farm!  Barney now lives happily in CT.

BARNEY: A 3 year old Border Collie mix, Barney is a sweet, loving dog who completely enjoys people as well as belly rubs. He is a gentle guy who also loves to roll around on the ground and enjoy the outdoors. He has had an unusual history before landing at the Farm. Barney appeared on our courtesy listings in Feb 2002, was adopted privately to a local family near the Farm. With courtesy listings, we are not involved, but in an odd twist of fate, Barney was recently taken to our rescue vet with the request to euthanize him. At the time of his adoption, he was completely healthy, a happy one year old. Roll the clock ahead, and Barney is now an overweight dog, lethargic and suffering from an injury leaving him unable to walk which is why the adoptive family wanted him euthanized. After extensive vet 

work - a full bloodwork panel, heartworm and lyme test, as well as bringing him up to date on his shots, turns out Barney has a torn cruciate, meaning his kneecap is literally torn, unable to support him. The surgery for cruciate repair involves placing a lateral nylon system around the knee to restore his ability to move. This procedure is fairly common, though requires extensive rehab.  Barney is now going to a foster home in CT with one of our adopters, the Fitzgerald's who kindly offered to love him back to good health.  We feel that Barney most definitely had an angel on his shoulder the day the adoptive family took him to our vet because their normal vet would have euthanized him without concern. Her compassion saved his life, led her to us of course, which meant as a team, we can give Barney what he deserves - proper health care and eventually a new home. This time, Barney will be in our rescue program, fully protected for life in the event any other mishaps occur. Our contract is a lifetime agreement for follow-up to insure the dog is safe

A big toy boy, Tazz happily plays all day, if someone wants to join him.  Otherwise, he is happy to be with other dogs, making up border collie games. Tazz is a very smart Border Collie and will be best with seasoned Border Collie adopters as he needs to be mentally challenged as well as physically engaged. Tazz is good with cats and has been introduced to agility and herding during the camp weeks and excelled at both, eager to participate.  He is typical in size for most border collies, about 35 pounds. He was relinquished to a shelter in Media, Pennsylvania due to his energy levels.
