BRADY: A gorgeous 2 year old Border
Collie, Brady loves to play with other dogs and is happiest running
around, making up doggie games. Like any young border collie, he
needs an outlet for his energy and a home that understands the breed. He
is very very smart, alert and observant. He can be shy meeting new people
so will need a patient guardian to help him build his confidence. He will
blossom in the right home where his needs can be met and a strong
relationship with a person can be built. Brady is good with cats. He is
typical in size for the breed, about 40 - 45 pounds. Brady has lived with
children but did not have the freedom of a fenced yard so will do best
where he can have freedom to safely run and play. He will be placed in an
adult home since he has some herding instincts though not extreme. Brady
was relinquished because the family felt he was the wrong breed for their
situation and had a baby coming, as well as three other children, needing
their attention. Brady was surrendered to the farm from the PA area.

gorgeous duo found their forever home together, having been roommates at

She is eager to please and responds beautifully to whatever is asked of
her. Sasha has not yet been tested on cats. She is about 30 - 35 pounds. Sasha
was relinquished because she was herding horses in an unfenced situation
and the guardians did not want to tie her out. She came to the farm from

cats. Joie will be placed in an adult home since he's still learning
about mouthiness and can be a bit grabby like a puppy. Joie
came from Long Island where he had lived for a year until the family dogs
(shepherd mixes) began fighting with him.

foster home and will be coming to the Farm shortly. Please contact the farm if
interested before she arrives here.
Little Rea, now called
Sophie, found her forever home in a roundabout way, some may say, or
actually, the most direct way - the person transporting- we asked
her if she could hold onto her for a few nights and well, the rest is history! It's not the first time this
has happened, many a time it's crystal clear that the transporter is the
person the dog is meant to meet and we're happy to say, that's the story
here! Little Sophie now lives with Ollie, a border collie from the Farm
and Kirby, our funny lab-corgi mix that strayed to the Farm so we can now
make it a trio of dogs from the Farm! We offer a big congratulations to
the Longfellow family and of course Sophie, who now has a loving life
forever. Sophie now lives in NY.

liked too! Her loving guardians know the breed well and have just the

interested in everything around her and is active like all Border Collies,
looking for a focus for her brilliant, thinking mind. She is good with
other dogs and would do best with another border collie. She chases cats
but will not hurt them, so would be best with dog savvy cats. Isabella was found as a stray, pregnant at the time. She
came into rescue long after her puppies were adopted, given to us from a
nearby NY shelter.

BEENE, the wonderful little stray who held his own amidst all these
herding dogs, found his forever home with someone his own size, almost
identical to him. Kasey, his new 'girlfriend' had him doing flips on his back in joy, bounding around like we'd never seen before - he was
so animated and happy to finally have a friend just like himself...we chuckled watching the fun! Beene's has two great kids for fun, too and
guardians who love the comical fun of little characters like Beene. Funny thing is his new guardian once found a stray border collie on the
street who lived with her for many years - probably explains why Beene came to us - just to find her with a border collie connection! Beene
now lives in New Jersey and will never be wandering down a street, matted so badly he couldn;t even see his way. The poor little guy now
looks like a king and will live like one, too!

to bond and pays close attention to whatever person is nearby, ready to

anywhere with you. He loves to ride in the car, too. Harper is one of THE
most agile dogs in rescue...he not only leaps up to pull himself over a 6
foot fence (like a chin-up), he also goes up attic stairs.. the ones that
are only 4 inches wide and go very steep into your attic. And, if that's
not all this marvelous magician can do, he goes down the attic stairs...an
unbelievable thing to see! He could most definitely do agility! Harper is good with
other dogs. He could be happy as a solo dog in an active home or with
another dog or two. Harper could live with cats if they are used to dogs.

Syracuse, NY where the shelter called us for help with him.
