found his forever home with his foster family in CT...he now has two
border collie pals, one of which he plays with continuously, and he gets
to run across acres and acres of the family farm while enjoying the
complete love of his new guardians! yea to Oreo!
OREO: a 3 year
old purebred, Oreo is very, very easy-going and gets along beautifully
with strangers and dogs. He's friendly, gentle and interested in
everything. Oreo is also good with kids, having been with two 9-year
old twins from puppy hood on. He loves the activity and energy of
being with other dogs and could easily fit into a larger pack of 3, 4, up
to 7, depending on the dogs. However, he would not be happiest alone
which is why he was relinquished. Like all border collies without
enough activity when alone and bored, he gets frustrated and will chew.
Since being with other dogs at the Farm, he has not chewed anything. Oreo
is a taller border collie yet does not jump up or push other dogs around
with his size. He weighs approximately 50 pounds, typical for his
size. Oreo was dearly loved in his previous home which
explains his ease with people. OREO relinquished by guardian.
Oreo is being fostered in Western Ct.
found her forever home with another border collie, just as obsessed with
frisbee and ball as she is...plus she'll be able to do agility for fun,
joining her new 'fur mom' in classes! Daisy now lives in Rhode
brilliant and agile Border Collie, Daisy is a cuddler by nature, that is,
when she isn't playing ball. She jumps quickly toward you for lots of hugs
and affection, then immediately heads for the ball, frisbee or any toy
nearby. Only 15
months old, Daisy is a petite purebred border collie with American Border
Collie Association papers & AKC registration. Her
grandsire on the sire side was the 1999 Purina Herding Dog of the Year. Her grandsire on the dam side was the 1996 USBCHA National
Finals champion. One of his sons (Bill) won the 2001 Finals.
Daisy can do agility or flyball as a hobby but not competitively due to a
previous leg injury. It does not hamper her in any way unless she is going through the demands of
competitive training. She is very sweet,
incredibly alert and focused on toys of all kinds. She knows sit,
stay, down and comes when called. Daisy is very intelligent and shows all the classic border
collie traits, being high energy, though not nipping. She would be
best in a home with another border collie and with someone committed to
rigorous activities as an outlet for her mind and body. When bored, she
can become depressed and chews her tail and back legs (very typical of an
under-stimulated border collie). She is good with other dogs though
territorial over her toys and will give a quick growl to signal other dogs
what the rules are...she does not fight. Daisy is 29 pounds and quite
is good with cats. She was dearly loved but given up due
to a lifestyle change where there was no time for her.
gorgeous Griffin will now be walking great trails throughout Massachusetts
as a hiking companion and beloved friend. He'll also get a chance to
do competitive obedience and maybe agility. Griffin caught his
guardian's heart when they first met, leading her to travel back for him,
1 1/2 year old border collie (possibly aussie mix-his tail is docked),
Griffin is a gentle, sensitive and affectionate dog. Obviously
previously loved by someone, he is very responsive to people and bonds
quickly. He is very playful with other dogs but loves to sit next to
you on the couch, relaxing. He knows sit and is good on leash
and off leash. When walking through the woods, he is keenly alert,
ears pricked up high and his body has a graceful look, almost like a deer
in a field. Griffin would be fine in a
home without another dog but will need to be involved in activities with
his human....relationship matters to him. Griffin is typical in size
for a border collie, but his body is a bit longer & heavier at 52
pounds. Griffin has been cat tested and was very good.
Griffin was a stray due to be euthanized.
Loveable, ball-crazed Raider found his forever home now far from the local
PA shelter where he was surrendered but he'll be living in his
forever home this time because his new guardians love his spunk, his focus
and his obsession with balls, as you can see he's always diving for the
ball! Raider has a furry pal to keep him company plus 30 acres of
beautiful country side to explore. After 6 months at the Farm, we're
sure he's ready for his new life.
A gorgeous 15 month old border collie/aussie mix, Raider is a delightful,
playful fun dog! He is great off-leash, never wandering far, more
eager to stay connected to people. He is a very balanced, confident
dog, responsive to learning and LOVES to endlessly play ball yet once in
the house, he enjoys laying down near you, just being with you. He comes
when called, will always sit for a treat and is very tuned in to pleasing
someone who is interacting with him. Raider would be a great
companion for adults who want an active dog. Raider has been cat tested
and was very good and is good with all other dogs, even fitting in
with difficult dogs.
has been passed over at the Farm numerous times due to one piece of work
that is needed...we do not feel this is a big task but it takes a commitment
to help him...he is shy with meeting new people and doesn't like them
reaching for his head to pet him...once people offer treats, give him time
to acclimate to them without pressure, he will very quickly warm up. He is
not aggressive at all, it's just when a stranger approaches him, he needs
to be allowed to smell them, get used to them and receive a treat, then
he's comfortable. He'll be best without children in the home,
living with adults who can offer the continuity of proper introductions.
People often hesitate to adopt him because of this which is such a shame
because he is truly one of the most wonderful dogs at the Farm, very
very loving and friendly. We see many dogs in rescue with an issue
and only hope that people understand that the dog didn't come into the
world with issues, a human mistreated the dog, creating the fear.
Raider's reaction to meeting new people is completely manageable and only
requires a sincere desire to help him gain more confidence. Raider
is approximately 47 pounds and shows no herding or nipping traits. He
was relinquished by guardians to a local pound because he was too active
for their 2 year old child.
will be chasing squirrels and rabbits with a furry buddy on 25 acres in
Vermont, happily adored by her new guardians who found her to be so
delightful they couldn't imagine life without her!
a petite, approx 4 year old Border Collie, Jess is a sweet, affectionate, loving
girl who loves to be with people. She is shy and cautious in new
situations but quickly overcomes her hesitancy for a pet on the head and a
rub on the stomach. Jess really wants to connect with someone
for a relationship. Over time, she is likely to gain more confidence that
she is safe and won't be hurt because it seems she's probably been yelled
at or worse. Her neck is presently scabbed from a collar too tight
or being tied out on a rope or chain. Jess is fine with other
dogs, very submissive, but definitely interested in them, though she'd be
best with a less pushy dog or as the only dog. She'll also do
best with someone around a great deal since her need for healing is
strong. Jess is a lovely little girl, just eager to please.
She is good with cats and a bit smaller size border collie, approximately 30 pounds. Jess
was due to be euthanized in a pound.
found her forever home with another border collie, a young boy named
Raider who is curious about her and know she's in charge! Cheyenne
will now be living in PA with two kids and a very committed border collie
family! They just fell in love with her, of course!
A 1 year old
border collie, Cheyenne is a very loving girl, eager to bond with people.
She is very playful with other dogs, high energy and in fact, would do
really well with another dog to play all day. Cheyenne is rather shy at first, hesitant to trust
people, more so men, but clearly wants to connect. Once she does,
she offers her paw, loves her chest being scratched and will sit quietly
by your side. She is very alert, observant and will bond to someone
who commits to her. Cheyenne is typical in size for a border collie,
about 40 pounds. She is crazy about
toys, taking toy after toy out of the basket, creating a collection
outside for play! She is extremely fast, in fact, faster than all
the other dogs at the Farm and she loves to run, angle, cut and get others
to chase...quite an incredible sight to watch. She was relinquished to a local pound due to
having too much energy.
found his forever home with a wonderful couple who want to devote lots of
attention to their beloved furry friend and also want to help Mickey with
some of his issues with strangers. They are committed to Mickey and
felt he is the perfect addition to their life. Mickey now lives in
MICKEY: 4 1/2
years old, Mickey is a border collie mix (possibly w/collie) who is
friendly and interested in bonding right away. He loves the
attention and connection with a human who understands him. Mickey is
not high energy, preferring to be a good companion, with someone as much
as possible in their daily life. He is also good with other dogs,
very playful and not dominant. He is not showing heavy border collie
tendencies to nip or herd but he will protect his family home from
strangers not properly introduced. Mickey barks and will growl to
handle unknown visitors so needs training from a seasoned dog person to
let him know when that is appropriate and when it is not. Mickey is best
in a home with older children. Mickey is typical in size for a border
collie, about 40 pounds. He was relinquished to a local pound.
now Calvin, found his forever home with two furry friends, a border
collie and a lab mix, both who love to run and chase and play. Tweed loved
his new guardians instantly and will now be living in Delaware.
TWEED, a 1 year old red
and white border collie, possibly a bit of a mix, Tweed is an
affectionate, playful, ready-to-go guy...he truly is friendly with
everyone and every dog, eager to play, race around and grab toys, just a
like a puppy. He could be less than a year old with the energy he
has with other dogs and his excitement to be in the middle of the action.
He's very smart, knows sit and very oriented to learning and responsive.
He's also quite fast and physically confident. Tweed will need
obedience to help him know the rules. Tweed would be best in a home with
another dog since he loves to play. He's not showing heavy herding
or nipping instincts. He is typical in size for a border collie,
about 45 pounds. Tweed is
good with cats but will need a bit of supervision since he is curious.
He takes a correction very quickly and is so people focused, he wants to
please. Tweed would be happiest with
another dog to play and thoroughly occupy himself or would need an active
lifestyle if there is no other dog.
Tweed was a stray in a local pound.
just went to his new home where he'll be a geese chasing dog!!!! he
will be working on golf courses 3 days a week with a wonderful man who
does this part time and also is a competitive frisbee champ....so you can
imagine that Merlin will be very busy between the two He'll be living in
New Jersey with a great family, 2 kids who both play soccer and of course,
are fantastic frisbee throwers as well as ball throwers.. they
installed the invisible fence already and came for him today...they
LOOOVVVVEEE him.... he begins some training tomorrow, watching
another border collie who works the geese, too!! Should be an
incredible life for him.
gorgeous 4 year old purebred, Merlin is a ball fanatic and would be
fantastic in flyball! He is relentless in his desire to retrieve the
ball, bring it to you and catch it which he does very precisely, almost
every time. Merlin is also a very loving, sweet border collie,
interested in people and friendly to everyone he meets. He would do
best with an active guardian who can stimulate his mind with the ball or
in other ways and he will bond very quickly and fully. He would also
be okay without another dog for company, though he is fine with other
dogs. He is a brilliant dog, clearly observant of everything around
him and very, very alert. Merlin has lived with very young children
but would be best with older children where he can bond better. He
is about 50 pounds typical in size. Merlin is trained on the
invisible fence. Merlin is good with cats but may also need some
Merlin was relinquished
due to a family change in lifestyle.
little Mika (aka Cammie) found her new guardians within days of coming to the
farm! They came to see her and just adored everything about her, as
she did them. Mika is now living in upstate NY.
CAMMIE: A 9 month
old petite border collie mix, Cammie is a sweetheart, loving to be in your
lap and a part of all the action! She's very friendly with everyone
and loves to be in the center of the action with other dogs, too.
She is very small and has a docked tail but her charm is big and she's
always 'waggin' with energy - she loves to run and move and check
out everything. Cammie is about 20 pounds. Cammie was a
stray in a shelter due to be euthanized.
Delaney (aka Brenn) found his forever home with another Border Collie (mix)
adopted from us over a year ago. They were fast friends and he'll be
happily playing together in MA now!
A loveable 3-4 month old purebred, Brenn is very people oriented,
jumping into your lap for cuddling and of course, nibbling on your
fingers, too. He is full of energy yet also very sensitive, wanting
to be with people. He's good with other dogs but a little less
confident than his brother, Dru, so will do best with an easy-going dog,
not a dominant one. Brenn will be placed into a Border Collie
home and preferably with another border collie. Brenn will need
obedience and patience as he's in the chewing stage, typical of a pup.
He is about 15 pounds, typical for a pup. Brenn was a stray due to
Dru has a new home in the Adirondacks on a lake with a family that
just loves him! He's got another Border Collie (mix) for a furry pal
and plenty of fun things to do with the kids, maybe even agility!
DRU: A wonderful
4 month old purebred, Dru is all border collie, running, cutting and
angling, focused (at the moment) to play! He is also very, very
sweet, eager to be in your lap and give and get kisses. He's very
sensitive with people yet he is confident with other dogs and will take
care of himself with adult dogs. Dru needs to be in a Border
collie home and with another dog, preferably a border collie. He will
need obedience and patience as he is in the chewing stage, as typical of a
puppy. He is about 20 pounds, typical for a bc pup. Dru was a
stray due to be euthanized.
(aka Mirk) found his forever home with
another border collie who is just as focused on toys and balls as he is!
His new guardians hike and canoe and can't wait for him to join them on
their trips! Glen now lives in upstate NY.
MIRK: an 9 month
old petite purebred, Mirk is a sweetheart, very affectionate with people
and eager to bond. He is typical in border collie energy, very focused,
observant and highly trainable. He is quite fast, already showing
the 'eye' with some herding. Mirk could excel in agility with his
eye, speed and size, being a bit smaller than the typical bc. Mirk
is very smart, knows basic obedience and is eager to please. He is
good with other dogs though he will guard his toys and is very confident
for a puppy, willing to handle other dogs to keep what's his. He
loves to play with other dogs, especially border collies. He is
about 30 pounds. Mirk was given up because he 'was too big' for the
apartment his guardians lived in and upon relinquishment, was due to be
destroyed (there is no law about holding surrendered dogs for any length
of time.) Fortunately, a rescue person happened to see him come and saved
his YOUNG, SWEET life! Mirk
is not good with cats as he focuses on them as if they are 'sheep', ready
to herd them. Mirk would be fine as the solo dog in a home or mixing
with more submissive dogs. Either way, he will need an outlet for
his mind and body. He
was relinquished by guardians to a shelter and was due to be euthanized.
& KELLY: Lucky for the new guardians, this wonderful pair of
border collies are together forever... they love each other and both
absolutely love people, which their new guardians found out upon meeting
them. A wonderful duo, they will now be living on a 100 acre estate
with 20 fenced acres where they can freely race around and play all day.
Their new humans are home all the time and available for lots of fun as
well as watching sheep, chickens, horses and everything else you can
imagine! Scotty & Kelly now live in upstate NY.
SCOTTY: A 1 year old
purebred, Scotty is full of life and ready to play! He adores people
and is friendly to everyone, eager to bond and be hugged and give kisses.
Scotty has gorgeous markings, including one light blue eye. Scotty
is high energy and would do best with another border collie so he'd
be mentally and physically stimulated. He responds well to commands
and is very eager to please so would do well in training. Scotty
knows sit and will come when called, though this is a new name for him.
He is not showing heavy herding or nipping traits but does need an outlet
for his energy. Scotty is curious
about cats and needs some supervision but won't hurt the cat & easily
takes correction because he's so eager to please. He is typical in size, about 40 pounds.
Scotty is okay with cats but will need a bit of supervision since he's
curious. He takes a correction very quickly and is so people
focused, he wants to please. Scotty
was a stray in a local shelter.
KELLY: A 9 month old purebred tri-color border collie - sable, red & white, Kelly is
incredibly people oriented, affectionate and wants to be in your lap
instantly. She is friendly with everyone she meets and great with
other dogs, mixing well with all temperaments. Kelly is VERY high
energy and will need an interactive relationship with a person involved in
activities with her. She would also be happiest with another dog to
race and play and invent dog games. Kelly is very smart and highly
trainable and game for pretty much anything, just to be with her person.
She would be best with someone who knows this breed. She is a bit
stockier with shorter legs, than the typical border collie but her weight
is typical, around 40 pounds. Kelly
is okay with cats but will need a bit of supervision since she's curious.
She takes a correction very quickly and is so people focused, she wants to please. Kelly would be
happiest with another dog to play and seems to prefer male dogs. She
could be the solo dog as long as there was enough activity to stimulate
Kelly was a stray due to be destroyed.
found his forever home in Ct with a great couple, former border collie
guardians, who just fell in love with his brilliance. Walking on the
trails at the Farm, Tye connected with them completely. He'll be
running around in a big back yard as well as trying agility at a nearby
canine sports center, plus lots of walks in the woods every day.
TYE: a stunning 11 month
old border collie, Tye is full of life, ready to play and eager to be with
people to do so. He will run to catch balls and toys of any kind,
happily coming back again and again for another throw. He is very
lively and full of energy, yet not hyper. He has a graceful prance
to his run and a powerful jump when he comes to you for attention.
He will settle down next to you for affection. Tye is good with
other dogs, preferring females more than males, but he's fine with either.
He is very very alert, watching everything that goes on and is not showing
any nipping or herding instincts. However, as a young dog, he is
very mouthy and unaware of how he uses his mouth so will not be placed
with young children. Tye is not good with cats and
is typical in size for a border collie,
approximately 35 pounds. Tye would be fine as the
solo dog in the home or can mix with other dogs, depending on the
temperament. Tye was a stray from a local shelter.
JD (aka Wylie) caught the eye of a wonderful couple, retired
farmers who had lost their beloved border collie. With 15 acres of
countryside for fun, JD will be their constant companion, totally
the center of attention. Wylie now lives in upstate NY.
WYLIE: An 8 month
old Border Collie mix, Wylie is a teddy bear and in fact, carries his
teddy bear around in his mouth all the time. A real sweetheart, he
wants to be with people, loves affection and will follow you around
everywhere. He also loves to play with other dogs and race around
like young pups do. Wylie is very alert, aware of all the activities
around them and eager to join in everything. He knows sit and will
need further obedience since he's a young dog. Wylie would probably
be happiest with another dog to play and burn off his puppy energy.
He is not as large as his pictures look, actually he's shorter than normal
border collies and a bit thicker. Wylie will probably not grown much
larger than he is. Wylie is curious about cats but in a puppy-like
way and would be fine supervised since he's very eager to please. Wylie
was a stray in a shelter, about to be euthanized.
found his forever home on a beautiful farm in Vermont, where he'll be
living with another border collie. He'll be able to run the fields
and acres of land (fenced in), keeping busy with all the animal activities
and always have the companionship of his new guardian who works on the
farm day and night. She loved his gentle nature which matched her
current beloved border collie perfectly!
McDonney: a 1 1/2
year old purebred border collie, McDonney is a gentle, affectionate dog,
eager to bond with people and happy to be loved. He's a more
sensitive dog, aware of everything around him. McDonney is very
friendly with other dogs, very playful and a classic border collie, eager
to focus on a ball or race around and herd the other dogs. However,
he is not showing heavy border collie instincts. He is quite
handsome in person with unique markings, typical in size of 35 pounds.
He knows sit and will come when called, even with his new name. McDonney earned his unusual name because he had a McDonald's hamburger as
a treat en route from the pound where he was due to be euthanized.
Instead, he happily made it to the Farm. He is good with cats.
Donney would be fine as the solo dog or can mix with other dogs, but does
get along best with females.
was a stray from a local shelter.
new 'furmom' saw her picture and just knew she had to come live with her
family! And, then upon meeting her in person, was crystal clear that
sweet Nellie's heart joined theirs. Nellie now lives in Ct with her
beagle friend, Peaches, where they can both share their special kind
NELLIE: A 3 year
old mix (we're not sure about border collie), we heard of Nellie's story
and just couldn't leave her to die. She and Bree were in a kill
shelter where they still gas the dogs rather than use humane euthanasia
procedures, so with only 20 minutes to decide her fate, with no pictures
in our hands, we said we'd take the two border collie mixes, sight unseen.
It just didn't seem right not to help.
sweet Nellie is here at the Farm and hoping someone will find her
as adorable as any of the Border Collies they see. And, she is
wonderful, incredibly sweet and quite the charmer. She gently crawls
up onto your lap, hoping for affection, just eager for a connection with
someone who is kind. We think Nellie didn't have such a good life
because she's a little timid, seemingly afraid she might be hit.
But, she holds no grudges, as she is easy going, playful and gentle, never
jumping up or pushing herself unless invited. She is good with other
dogs and will certainly blossom with loving care. She's a petite
girl, about 30 pounds and is good with cats, disinterested. Pictures
don't do Nellie justice because you can't feel her warm, sweet heart,
which is ever present as soon as you meet her.
and Macleod became fast friends at the Farm, racing, playing and
wrestling and have now found a new life together with their
guardians in New Jersey. They'll have another furry friend, Beagley,
all of whom will be totally adored and loved as 'their kids', as they are
MACLEOD: A 1 year
old Border Collie, Macleod is striking with his freckled nose and one blue
eye. He's a playful, fun loving, friendly guy who is eager to meet
everyone and anyone near him. He is great with other dogs,
mixes easily and quickly and likes lots of activity. He is high
energy so will need another dog to keep him stimulated enough.
Macleod will need obedience basics but is very food oriented so easy to
train. He will guard his food from other dogs (not from people)
since he was a stray and has a strong sense of need for food.
Macleod is about 40 pounds, typical in size. Macleod is curious about
cats but in a puppy-like way and would be fine supervised since he's very
eager to please. Macleod was a
stray at a shelter that needed to get him out fast!
WREN: a 1 year
old Border Collie mix, Wren is a sweetheart, in need of a human
connection. She really desires warm affection and gentle touching.
She is not high energy and would prefer to sit by your side on the couch.
She does like playing with other dogs and the fun of going places with you
and being involved in everything. Wren is a bit shy at first and hesitant
to be touched on the head so will need some patience and a home that is
not chaotic. Once she feels safe, she's a real love. Wren is
typical in size of a border collie, about 35 pounds. Wren is okay
with cats but may also need some supervision. Wren would be fine as
the solo dog in a home but with her shyness, probably most comfortable
with another dog or other dogs in the environment. Wren will be best with
older children since she is a bit hand shy, fearing she may be hit.
found at the pound, trembling, shaking and paralyzed with fear due to the
kennel environment. She has blossomed at the Farm beautifully
changing from a terrified girl to a playful, tail wagging gem. In
the right home, she will continue to blossom.
found her forever home with another great dog from the Farm, Lucy, adopted
last June! She's now living in New Jersey, happily racing around
with Lucy and loving her life with her new guardians who adore having two!
And, they'll both be coming to Camp this summer so we'll have lots of
updated pictures to show!
BREE, a 1 year old
Border Collie mix, Bree is very petite (you can't tell in the pictures)
and very, very affectionate. She loves attention and kisses and cuddling
and she also loves to run and race around, playing with other dogs.
She is very agile and alert and eager to please. She also loves toys
and is very trainable. Bree is good with cats and all other dogs and
would enjoy a home with another dog to burn off her energy and
playfulness. She will not get much bigger as she is a petite dog. Bree
was a stray, in a shelter about to be euthanized.
found her forever home with a wonderful family who has had two Border
Collies before and just love the breed. They, of course, fell madly
in love with the sweet, gentle nature of Brigit and happily welcomed her
into their home. Brigit now lives in upstate NY.
BRIGIT: A 2 month
old purebred Border Collie, Brigit is a delightful beautiful pup, eager to
explore everything and anything. Brigit is actually a tri-color with
a little light tan on her face. She is already showing signs of a
being a high energy border collie! She is very focused, observant
and eager to be in the middle of all activities. She loves the other
puppies and adult dogs and is very responsive to people, loving to cuddle
and get attention. She sits on your lap for kisses and affection,
then bolts off after whatever catches her interest. Brigit will be
placed in a border collie home, with another border collie since she is
showing signs typical of the breed. Brigit is about 8 pounds and
will be a rough coat when grown. She was in a shelter due to
be euthanized due to space.
Bess found her her forever home with a great couple who adopted
their first dog, Cammie (now Mika) from the Farm. Their former
Border Collie was a beloved family member as is Mika and now Bess!
Bess is living in upstate NY.
BESS: Little 2
month old Bess is a purebred Border Collie, showing all the signs of being
a high energy dog! She's playful, mischievous and alert watching
everything that goes on at the Farm, as well as trying to get into it!
She is a little fireball and will be placed into a Border Collie home
only, with another bc. Bess loves playing with the other pups, will
gladly play tug of war or grab any toy she can, racing around instigating
a game of chase. She's also good with adult dogs and loves people.
She comes right to you when called, and loves attention. Bess is
about 8 pounds and will be a rough coat border collie when full grown.
Bess was in a shelter due to be euthanized due to space.
shy Fawn found her forever home right away with two loving
guardians who literally felt her special charm in a surprising way...they
came to adopt an adult border collie and instead, seeing her amazing
gentle eyes and calm nature, found her irresistible! Fawn now lives
in upstate NY.
FAWN: A 3 month
old border collie, maybe sheltie, maybe collie, Fawn is very precious.
She is one of the most gentle little pups we've seen, a bit timid at first
with people and then warming up quickly to enjoy lying next to you,
stretched out at your side. She loves to give kisses and sit on your lap.
She is very, very observant, watching all the pups activities and
everything going on at the Farm. We think of Fawn as a more
sensitive dog who will benefit from kind and caring guardians who nurture
her confidence. She races around with the other pups and adult dogs,
getting into mischief like any pup but she's the first to quiet down and
loves affection. The sister of Tuck, she's the quiet one while he's
the outgoing one. Fawn is about 10 pounds, has a beautiful chocolate
color coat that will be a rough coat when grown. She was in a
shelter due to be euthanized due to space.
found his forever home in one meeting...his new guardian absolutely fell
in love with his picture and knew when they met, he was his dog! Zappa now
lives in Pennsylvania and will be his new guardian's constant companion.
We're so happy for Zappa, he'll never be abandoned again.
ZAPPA, a 1 year old
gorgeous Border Collie/Husky mix, Zappa is incredibly alert, responsive
and eager to play. He is very people oriented, very loyal, full of energy
and loves car rides! Zappa loves to lick faces, have his belly
rubbed and will go anywhere for fun! He is great with other dogs and
in fact, needs the play to work off his energy. Zappa would be a
good family dog because he's so eager to please and wants to be a
part of everything. Zappa will need consistent obedience training since he
is young plus he tends to be mouthy, as most young dogs are, so would be
best in a home with older children. Zappa has been cat tested and
was too interested to live with cats. He is about 45 pounds, typical
in size. Zappa was confiscated by the Humane Society when he
was discovered abandoned in an empty apartment.
Zappa is being fostered in Southern New
found her new home in an unexpected way! She was being transported
by former adopters, (Brither aka Merlin's guardians) who volunteer to help
rescue dogs who need to get to the farm (they previously brought Fiona to
safety) and surprisingly, after dropping her at the farm, they realized
they just couldn't live without her! So, Megan came to the Farm and
promptly found her forever home! That's a lucky girl! She'll
be joining a family of 4 border collies, living in upstate NY.
A gorgeous 3 year old purebred, Megan is very friendly, bonds instantly
and wants to be with people. She is a very alert, lively Border
Collie but not high strung or obsessed. She is good with other dogs,
causing little or no problems but she is dominant and will take care of
herself if another dominant dog confronts her. She is a real
sweetheart, eager to please and confident. Megan is a a large size,
tall Border Collie and has a few pounds to loose (don't we all!). Megan
was taken to a shelter due to a divorce.
gentle Tuck found his forever family when they fell in love with
him, first online and then again, even more, in person! He
jumped in their lap, licked their faces and said 'take me home' which they
happily did! Tuck now lives in Massachusetts.
TUCK: Little 3
month old Tuck is a border collie mix, maybe sheltie or collie though his
markings are just like Bing's who is a purebred who came from the same
shelter. (see Bing on our site) His coat is a beautiful chocolate brown
and looks like he will be a rough coat when his long hair grows in.
Regardless, he is a gem, very very outgoing and absolutely loves people.
Upon meeting you, he races over for kisses and attention, even foregoing
food just to get lovin. Tuck is very observant, alert and interacts
beautifully with the other pups as well as adult dogs. He is full of
puppy energy and gets into mischief, like all puppies do, but he is truly
a sweet, sweet dog. He's about 10 pounds. Tuck was in a
shelter, due to be euthanized due to space.
has his own family now! Never abandoned again, Fletcher has a furry
friend and two kind little girls who thought he was the best 'big puppy'
they'd seen. Bounding into their arms and laying on their lap, he
quickly won their hearts! Fletcher now lives in New Jersey.
2 1/2 year old border collie, Fletcher is extremely friendly, very lively
and loves people. He is eager to bond with someone and would prefer
a relationship where someone is around. Fletcher is very good with
other dogs, mixes fine instantly. He is a bit larger than the
typical border collie and very strong so not good for a home with young
children. He will also need consistent obedience training because
his enthusiasm can knock you over! Fletcher is good with cats,
disinterested. Fletcher was due to be
euthanized at a shelter.
found his forever home with another wonderful Border Collie from the Farm
- Daizy - adopted 6 months ago! Just like Daizy, Bing's sweet nature
won them over within moments of meeting him! Bing will now enjoy
hiking and ball and frisbee with Daizy and her, and now his, loving
guardians! Bing now lives in CT.
BING: A 3 year
old tri-color purebred smooth coat with papers, Bing is a wonderful Border
Collie who is very very people oriented, easy going and bonds quickly.
He is extremely good natured and affectionate without the nipping and
herding tendencies of the breed. Bing does love to run and needs
lots of exercise and ideally, another dog for play. Otherwise, an
active guardian would be great. Bing is a rare find with all the
brilliance and athletic abilities of a Border Collie without the intense
obsessions needing to work. In fact, Bing was bred to herd sheep and
relinquished because he didn't have a heavy drive to do so. Bing is
about 40 pounds, typical in size for a border collie. Bing has not been
tested with cats yet. Relinquished by guardian.
Flora found her forever home on a 105 acre horse farm with a former
border collie owner who loves the breed, their brilliance and sweet nature
which exactly Flora! She also wanted to adopt an older dog since
many people overlook them so Flora found a special place in her heart.
Flora now lives in New Jersey.
FLORA: A 5 year old Border
Collie, Flora is quite wonderful, sweet, loving and eager to be with
someone. She's really a gem, great with other dogs and so friendly -
but not great with cats. Flora was 'a town dog', caught as a stray on the street numerous times.
This owner's negligence has come with a high price and probably reflects a
lack of education about proper care of dogs. Because, unfortunately, Flora
has heartworm disease which can kill her without medical intervention.
Now in rescue, she will undergo a two-month treatment before she is
available for adoption. We have successfully taken two other dogs
through this tough treatment and they were adopted and lived healthy, full
lives. We are so grateful that she's landed in our care because
unchecked, she would definitely die.
Please remember to give your dogs heartworm
preventative every month in order to insure that your dog won't have to
undergo the painful medical procedure Flora is about to endure. Due
to improvements in the drug, which injected directly into the heart to
kill the mosquito larvae that is eating at the heart, it's fairly certain
she will recover completely because the disease has been caught early
(which is confirmed by an xray).
gentle Rennie found her forever home with a great family who fell
in love with her good natured disposition and once they knew her story,
wanted to give her a loving home! She bonded quickly with the
children and happily headed out the gate to her new life!
RENNIE: is a 6-8 month old
Border Collie with lots of energy and interest in playing! She
is great with people and learning obedience quickly - sit & down.
Like any young dog, she will need an outlet for her mental, physical and
emotional needs, probably with another dog. She likes to play ball
and is not showing any herding instincts. She is not good with cats. She
has a beautiful brindle coloring in her coat which is hard to see in the
pictures. Rennie is very alert, lively and extremely friendly to
everyone. She has been well socialized with children of various ages
and all dogs. She is typical in size for a border collie, about 35 - 40
Rennie, a stray left on the streets of the Bronx.
free spirited Huck found his forever guardian, a great guy who
really wants a companion to hike and explore the great outdoors.
After walking the trails at the farm & playing fetch with sticks in
the pond, he knew Huckey was his dog! Huckey happily hopped in his
truck and headed to his new home in Pennsylvania.
Huckey (Huck) is named after Huckleberry Finn, probably appropriate
because Huckey is a free spirit. A 2 year old Border Collie (possibly mix),
Huckey loves to play with other dogs and in fact, prefers dogs to people
most of the time. He'd fit in beautifully within a home with lots of dogs
and where there was one guardian able to focus on him. He bonds best with
one person, preferably a man, since he is a strong-willed dog. He is
very trainable, incredibly eager to learn and is one of the most obedient
dogs with consistency in sit, down, stay and come but requires a strong
alpha leader in his human. Huckey is wonderful off leash, staying
closer with you, never venturing far.
He does have a tendency to guard his
space from people he doesn't know, giving a growl or curled lip. He
has not bitten and shows no interest in doing so, but prefers less contact
with strangers, so necessitates a guardian who understands this, yet gives
firm rules for what's appropriate. In some respects, he'd probably
be happiest with a man who took him everywhere and challenged his mind
while giving him an outlet for playing with other dogs. Huckey is
approximately 40 pounds, typical in size for a border collie. Huckey
would be fine as the solo dog if there is a close relationship with a
person but he also loves to play with other dogs and would be great in a
home with multiple dogs. Huckey
was relinquished to a local shelter and due to be euthanized.
