Lovely sweet Rae found her forever home with guardians who were instantly charmed by her warm, loving nature and couldn't imagine leaving without her so off she went with them, clearly happy to be starting her new life. Rae will have be the constant companion to her people as well as have plenty of squirrels to chase each day. She now lives in PA.

RAE: A 3 year old tri-color Border Collie, Rae is a sweetheart, she absolutely loves people and wants to be with you all the time. She is happy to join in an activity, just content to be with her person. Rae is rather camera shy so it's hard to see how gorgeous her markings but she's as pretty as she is sweet. She is good with other dogs but a strong female so best with submissive males rather than females and would be happiest with another Border Collie. She could be a solo dog, too, as a real companion and friend. She is very smart and eager to learn and very easy going, not overly intense. Rae is good with dog savvy cats since she will herd them. She is about 40 pounds, typical in size for the breed. Rae was relinquished to the Farm due to issues with another female Border Collie in the home. She came to us from NY. 


Beautiful Billie found her forever home with a loving guardian who wants to try agility and therapy work, both of which Billie would love. She also has a furry friend, Arrow (not pictured), for lots of play and fun day in and day out. Billie's new family fell in love with her gentle, sweet ways and clearly chose them, too. Billie now lives in upstate NY

BILLIE: A 2 year old Border Collie, Billie is not only beautiful, she is friendly and fun. She is great with people, very loving and affectionate and wants to be with you and involved. She is calm and gentle but comes to life with other dogs because she just loves to play. Billie is good natured and playful but not as high energy as some so could be a great companion. She is about 35 pounds, typical in size for a female and not yet tested on cats. Billie was a stray in western PA. 


Heidi found her forever home quickly, happy to have acres of yard for exploring and two people who love the brilliance of the breed and fell in love with her. She had waited (unbeknownst to us) in the shelter two months before getting to the farm so certainly was ready to head out into her new life! Heidi now lives in Massachusetts.

HEIDI: A 3 year old Border Collie, Heidi is very sweet and wants to connect to people right away. She is friendly and happy go lucky about pretty much everything. A bit undersocialized with other dogs, she is doing just fine fairly quickly at the Farm meeting other Border Collies and is happy to have lots of room to run and play exploring with the gang. We'll know shortly whether she'd be happiest with a friend or as a solo dog. Heidi is very attentive and eager to please and also active but not overly intense. She has not yet been tested on cats. Heidi is about 35 pounds, typical in size and weight. She was a stray in western NY where the shelter contacted us for help. 


Sweet Spence found his forever home with adopters who previously had a dog from the Farm and just fell in love with his easy-going, good nature. He quickly connected with their dog and it was clearly a match made forever! Spence now lives in Pa, not far from where he was fostered. A special thanks to the Toomey family who kindly made room for Spence in their home since the Farm was full! Turns out he never needed to leave the area!

SPENCE: a 10 mo old border collie (possibly a mix) is full of BIG puppy energy.  He weighs approx 45lbs, and still has a little filling out to do.  Spence  does not have strong herding instincts and is more of a companion who wants to be with people first and dogs second. He has all the border collie intelligence and wants to please and be loved. Spence was relinquished to a shelter in NJ because of his energy level.



CHASER & SHENNA found a new life TOGETHER where they can herd til their hearts are content with sheep and geese and a loving guardian who was drawn to their focus and intensity to work and play!...At their weekend farm, they will have their own sheep to herd on 435 acres abutting an 8600 acre nature conservancy plus chickens, turkeys and horses with days filled with hiking, running and tons of outdoor play. Their weekday home is a cottage on a 300 acre Golf Course & Country Club where they can assist in geese control (for fun) and live an ideal outdoor life running, chasing and playing Border Collie games. Their new person quickly fell in love with this duo and knew they would be great companions for life. Chaser and Shenna are an amazing pair that everyone at the farm adores and will be missed but, quite obviously they will enjoy their new life so much more than what they had before - Chaser was in suburban NJ with children tormenting him with sticks...Shenna was tied out on a concrete slab in Brooklyn, then dumped at a shelter. We are so thankful that wonderful people turn to rescue to adopt. A special thanks to one of our friends of the Farm, Debbie Lind, who helped make the connection to the Farm. 

SHEENA: A petite 3 year old Border Collie, Sheena is not only beautiful, she is smart and focused and agile. She is a classic Border Collie who wants to be active interacting with a person and her work (toy play). Sheena really would benefit from someone who can develop her confidence through play and training. She is a bit shy at first with strangers but once comfortable, is friendly and happy. Sheena would be best with another Border Collie, a male ideally, since she is a strong female. She is good with cats. Sheena is about 35 pounds, a bit petite. Sheena came from a shelter in Brooklyn where she was surrendered because the owner was moving. 

CHASER:  A 6 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Chaser is focused, fast and fun when it comes to toys. He lives for the frisbee and balls being thrown over and over again. He has a strong 'eye' and can catch pretty much anything that comes his way. Chaser is eager to interact with someone for play or what he would consider his work and probably could have herded sheep when he was younger. He has been tested on sheep at the Farm during camp and has tremendous potential to work. He has great authority and handles the sheep beautifully. He is independent in his interactions with people, typical for border collies with a strong instinct for working. He is totally trustworthy off leash once he has bonded with the person who is his partner. He is about 55 pounds and good with cats and great with other dogs. Chaser has some issues with being physically handled because the children in the family teased him with a stick since he was a puppy so he will go to an adult only environment. He seems most comfortable with men and would be best suited to a border collie home without children, and one that understands the wonderful brilliance of such a focused dog. Chaser was relinquished to the farm from New Jersey because the children now want a dog they can 'rough-house' with.   


Sweet Dillon found his forever home with a guardian who was drawn to him immediately and actually became his Border Collie Angel before traveling to meet him in Buffalo and becoming his new life-long guardian. Dillon has a border collie friend and lots of love forever! Dillon now lives in PA.

DILLON: A 4 year old red tri-color Border Collie, Dillon is a sweet dog who is very people friendly and loves attention. His first interest is people and being with you for loving. He likes dogs but he is happiest with a submissive dog who is easy going and friendly. Dillon is sensitive like many Border Collies so needs a patient person to help build his confidence, then he will return affection quickly and happily. He is not overly intense or active and would be a wonderful companion. He is good with cats. Dillon was in a shelter in Buffalo NY.  He is being fostered and can be seen in Buffalo or at the Farm. 


Wonderful Rio found his forever home with an adopter who has Fresca, another gorgeous, brilliant dog from the Farm. She patiently understands Rio's quirkiness and is happy to have him join her life where he'll have acres and acres to run and play and lots of time to make up border collie games! He'll be her constant companion so he'll never be discarded again. Rio now lives in Ct.

RIO: A 3 1/2 year old Border Collie, Rio is very people oriented and affectionate - he even gives wonderful doggie hugs. He is very intelligent and a keen observer of everything around him. Rio likes to be with the action and with his people. He gets along well with other dogs and enjoys play. Rio is fine with cats and about 50 pounds, carrying a few extra pounds which he will drop soon since he is more active. He had been left alone all day for 9 hours, not getting enough exercise. Rio loves to run and is a good natured, playful Border Collie. Rio came from PA , given up for lack of time for him.

Sweet Jessee found his forever home with a wonderful guardian who wanted to enjoy the remarkable relationship of a dog with special needs and offer a wonderful loving life full of hiking and play and companionship. Jessee loves toys and loves to explore and was quite clearly happy to hop in the truck and head out to a new life, never again to be left tied to a dog house all alone. He and Jessee will be best friends, together all the time and he's reworking the house to help Jessee find his way easily once he looses his sight. Jessee now lives in New Hampshire. A special thanks to Sandy Rivera, a friend of the Farm, who helped make this match happen.

JESSEE: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie mix, Jessee is incredibly sweet and loving and friendly. He absolutely loves to play with toys and will race around throwing them in the air, entertaining himself endlessly. He also LOVES to sit next to you and is a very very loving dog. He will also happily run for a ball you toss and is happy to be with people. Jessee has an eye problem and is partially blind and likely to be fully blind at some point. His sight is still fairly good and he can catch moving objects, follow direction doing almost what other sighted dogs can do, just every now and then bumping into something. His hearing and sense of smell is acute so he compensates beautifully and frankly, makes it hard to tell he has issues at all. He is about 40 pounds, very similar to body shape to a retriever and is good with cats. Jessee and his brother, Jax (adopted) were left tied to a dog house day and night until a neighbor stepped in to take them to a shelter which contacted the Farm for help. He came from western PA. No one realized that he could not see properly until they arrived here.

Hi Lillie:
I canít even begin to think of the words that would describe the joy of Jessee. Our ride back to New Hampshire was pleasant as he spent the entire time calmly in the front seat. In the last two days he has never left my side. He follows me every where. If Iím at the computer he rests at my feet. When Iím on the couch reading or watching TV he sits beside me. If I leave the room to go to the kitchen he follows me. He waits for me outside the shower every morning. In short we have bonded very quickly. His cognitive mapping abilities are amazing to say the least. He instinctively seems to know where the furniture and dogs bowls are located. He has learned the up and down of stairs very quickly. He is a very bright dog (after all he is a border collie) and he has made my task of teaching him the surroundings a very easy one.  We have taken three walks and he is always by my side. I am his eyes and he seems to know that.
I took him to my vets and he tells me Jessee has totally lost his vision in his left eye and has maybe 10% left in his right.
I just hope I can bring a little light into his very dark world.
Thank you so much and keep up your wonderful work,
Steve


Brilliant Brewster found his forever home with an adopter who adopted her dog from the Farm two years exactly the day of Brewster's birthday! A sweet irony that she can now celebrate that day for both dogs! Brewster will enjoy the great outdoors full-time with his new guardian who hikes, snowshoes, x-c skis, mountain bikes and even kayaks with the dog(s).

BREWSTER: A 1 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Brewster (formerly known as Buster) is very sweet and playful, eager to find an outlet for his mind.

So, Toby now has a dog buddy to help him feel safe and confident and people who adore him. Toby now lives in upstate NY and he'll never have to worry again about being mistreated.

TOBY: A 14 month old Border Collie, Toby is an adorable young dog with a sweet, gentle personality, a real love-bug and cuddler. He is timid with people but wants so much to connect that given time, he comes over and checks in, sitting right by your side. Then, he bonds for life! Toby likes to run and play with other dogs and make up Border Collie games and does best with another dog who is confident since he can be a bit shy at first. He definitely needs a furry friend. He is about 35 pounds, a bit smaller in height than the typical Border Collie and is good with cats.  Toby has such a sweet nature  though he can be shy in new situations so needs a patient guardian to continue helping him build his confidence.

He will need some continued obedience training since he can be mouthy and also needs new experiences for socialization. Mirke is about 30 pounds, a bit petite and is good with cats. Mirke was rescued by a NY breeder as a younger pup and then relinquished to the Farm. He had a hard start, living with an alcoholic owner on the back porch, undernourished and improperly cared for. It took some patience and focus to help him transition to a house setting with normal living but he's done very well and is now ready for the next phase of life in a new home. He will be placed in a Border Collie savvy home that understands the breed without young children. Mirke came from upstate NY.
