"We love our dogs and thank
you very much for saving them and keeping them!"
& Mollie found a wonderful couple who are as loving as
they are and of course, it was an immediate match made in heaven.
Former border collie owners, as well as other breeds, they were
stunned by their unique beauty and sweetness and felt they'd love
their home on 83 acres! Now, these two will never be abandoned again.
MOLLIE, a magnificent
18 month old female border collie collie, Mollie is really friendly, warm
to everyone and playful. She quickly bonds and loves affection and
also loves to lick your face, as well as play with JoJo. She is
graceful as she moves, every bit the collie in her 'elegance' yet all
border collie in her speed to move, her gorgeous eyes and her coat, which
is exactly border collie in consistency. Though Mollie looks the
size of a collie, she only weighs 48 pounds which is similar to Jo Jo.
relinquished to a local pound due to a move. She will be placed with
JoJo since they have a fabulous relationship.
JOJO: a wonderful and beautiful 3
year old female border collie collie, JoJo is gentle, friendly and
easy-going. The collie personality makes her very gentle while the border collie focus means she's paying attention to
everything! Very people friendly, and good with other dogs, JoJo is
a very unique dog to come into rescue. She's obviously tall like a
collie but has the coloring and coat of a border collie so the hair is not
long. JOJO was relinquished to a local pound due to a move.
She will be placed with Mollie since they have a fabulous relationship.
Piper found a great home where he's joined by a border collie mix
and a guardian who wants to teach Piper agility for fun - it's her hobby!
So, homeless Piper now has his own bed and own family who adores him!
PIPER, approx 8 months
old, this border collie is a very affectionate, cuddly dog who is focused
on bonding with people and eager to please. He's approximately 35
pounds, typical in size, and full of energy. He will need another dog to
burn off his energy and be an outlet for his puppy nature. He loves
to run, plays with any toy and is curious about everything around.
Piper will need obedience training and still has some puppy chewing left
in him, but easily takes corrections for right and wrong. Piper
was a stray at a local pound. He and Jesse and Rena all came in to
the same pound together.
Guinness attracted a young couple with another wiry, high-energy,
brilliant pup to be his friend, yet he can be the sole ball dog in the
family! Since he's a ball maniac, he did beautifully. After
much cuddling and ball chasing at the Farm, Guinness is now living in New
GUINNESS: a 2 1/2
year old purebred, Guinness is incredibly affectionate and completely
energetic and ready to go, playing ball or frisbee or whatever activity is
available! He's fun-loving, smart and agile and was introduced to
agility at 6 - 7 months old and apparently excelled at it. Guinness is intensely ball focused and will play for hours and hours, anticipating
the throw and racing to snatch it mid-air and return to you for more.
was given up because he needed 'more than the family could give' since
they had a 2 year old. He is under socialized with other dogs so
tends to be afraid but he's doing very well at the Farm in getting more
and more comfortable in playing. Guinness has a fear of some men
also so will need to be socialized in that area, too. He is very,
very responsive to people, eager to please and has been clicker trained
and knows sit, down and come. He is a very loving border collie.
Guinness is a typical size border
collie, around 40 pounds and lean. Guinness has been cat tested and
was curious but could be supervised and be fine. GUINNESS,
relinquished by guardian
Jack has a new girlfriend, a fun-loving Golden Retriever, Avery,
who became fast friends right away, racing around the farm like they had
been together forever. Of course, Jack took charge as the boss and
quickly led Avery into mischief but Jack's new guardians love the fun of
these two together. Jack is living in New
JACK: a 1
1/2 year old border collie mix, Jack is all play and lots of fun! He
loves the water, plays with toys endlessly and craves attention from
people. He's great with other dogs and needs play to burn off his energy,
but he's also very calm, and quietly sits outside, literally watching
everything going on at the Farm. He's very alert and wants to be a part of
the action! He will need consistency in obedience training to build on his
skills- he knows sit, roll over and down but is strong spirited so mischievously
does what he wants to do sometimes, too. Jack is about 50 pounds and
probably part spaniel. He was relinquished due to a move. Jack,
relinquished by guardian.
has a new furry friend, Maggie, another border collie mix, to run with and
play. When they first met, it was clearly big fun for both and the
family fell in love at the same time. Jesse is now happily living in
Ct, a long way from being euthanized.
Jesse is a 6-7 month old border collie mix, only 25 pounds and sweet as
can be, she's very very playful, great with other dogs and very interested
in people and affection - both giving it and getting it. She's
curious about all activities and also loves toys of any kind. She
may not get much bigger at all but knows how to handle herself with adult
dogs. Jesse would fit in fine pretty much anywhere. She will need
obedience training and still has the tendency toward puppy chewing, but is
so eager to please, she'll learn quickly what's right or wrong.
Jesse has been cat tested and was very good. JESSE
was a stray in the pound.
Mollie found a wonderful home with two children in CT where she's
the adored dog in the house, after the recent loss of a beloved sheltie.
It was love at first sight, literally on the site, when Mollie's pictures
caught their eye! She traveled home as the star passenger in the
Molly is approximately 8 weeks old, a border collie mix (we are unsure
what mix) She is very curious and playful, mixes with other dogs as
well as people and will explore everything around her with confidence.
Molly is as sweet as can be and happy to be pretty much anywhere where
she's adored. Molly was rescued from a kill shelter.
the first snow. We took her on a little cross-country ski trip at the
local high school and she had a blast. She kept right up with us. I
have to say we were all pretty tired when we got home so we all took a
(aka Morgan) little Daisy found her forever home in New Jersey with a
loving family and another border collie mix, Sparky! that's just
what Daisy wanted of course...another dog and lots of love!
Right before Daisy left the Farm, she'd been crouching down and starting
to herd the other dogs, so Sparky will be the new target for sure!
Morgan is approximately 12 weeks old, maybe mixed with corgi or aussie as
her lower legs seem shorter and her body fuller and longer than a purebred
border collie. Morgan is very playful, exploring everything and
anything and especially likes to play with other dogs. She would do
best in a home with another dog as she is confident and ready to play.
Morgan is a very sweet pup who loves people. She already comes on
the whistle. Morgan
will be placed with another dog since she is already eager to be with
other dogs and would be happiest this way.
was rescued from a kill
Gorgeous eyed Shelby landed in a multi-dog home so she has lots of dog
friends - 3! plus a wonderful couple who are devoted to their furry
friends - they even have a van filled with dog pillows so each dog rides
comfortably wherever they go! Shelby is now in New Jersey.
SHELBY: a 1 1/2
year old Border Collie mix, Shelby is incredibly sweet and eager to
connect with people though she is also very sensitive and shy. She has
gorgeous eyes and easily makes contact with you and wants affection.
Shelby was abused in her past so can be afraid to trust people and will
tend to seek a place to hide at first. She then becomes braver and wants
to be by your side. Shelby will require a long-term commitment to
patient, loving care because forcing her to do things will not help
rebuild her trust in people. She is a very loving dog, not showing
any border collie traits of nipping or herding. She loves to run and
play with other dogs and will be placed in a home with another dog, which
also helps build her confidence. Shelby
was relinquished by her guardian due to a move and divorce.
Lukie landed at the Farm and within days, found his new home!
he's going to live with Tucker, another border collie mix rescued at the
Farm and he'll have 3 wonderful kids to play with him as well as his new
furry pal! Lukie is now enjoying hikes in the CT woods instead
of the concrete shelter in TN where he was slated to be euthanized.
Lukie: a 4 month
old border collie, he is one of the sweetest puppies we've ever had
at the Farm. He's very outgoing and friendly with everyone and he's
absolutely fearless with other dogs. He goes right up to adult dogs
and takes a toy to play chase. Lukie is going to be placed with
another border collie since he's high energy and likely to be full of
classic bc traits. He is good in the house and will lay down with a
toy but just as happy to race around, play and chase all day. Lukie
was a stray due to be euthanized.
(aka Kizzy) landed beautifully in a
great home in Ct with another GHF rescue dog, Maud, a border collie mix,
adopted two years ago! Well, McCoy and Maud raced madly around the
farm, happily saying hello and getting acquainted, much to the pleasure of
his new guardians. So, a long way from the threat of euthanasia,
McCoy has his loving forever home on 2 acres!
KIZZY: a 1 1/2
half year old Border Collie, Kizzy is very very responsive to people and
in fact, in need of companionship and security. He's a real lover,
very smart and interested in toys and balls, but most of all, people.
He has come from some neglect so he will become more secure once he can
count on a consistent relationship. Kizzy is good with other dogs,
friendly and eager to bond. Kizzy is about 40 pounds, typical in
size for a border collie. Kizzy was a stray due to be
Casey & Rena found their forever home
together...their new guardians read the site and understood that dogs
enjoy being with other dogs and would be happier so they came to adopt
two! These two are like sisters, Casey, the older, confident one and
Rena, the mischievous, less secure one...a perfect pairing. Well,
the family thought so too, so they will now live in Ct on 3 1/2 acres with
two children and a life where they are adored. On their first walk
with Casey & Rena, the little girl told her Mom, (about Casey) -
"I feel like I've found my best friend!" This new year
will mean a new life for Casey & Rena!
CASEY: a lovely 4 year old purebred,
she is a real
sweetheart and would be a very loving companion. She has a beautiful
reddish/brown coloring with tri-color markings, hard to see in the
Casey is great on-leash,
very easy going and obedient and so eager to please. She's very smart and
likes the challenge of people to dog interactions. She is a real
gem, very eager to bond and affectionate. She is very obedient and good
with other dogs. Highly intelligent and observant, she can quickly respond
to any situation or relax with you. She knows sit and comes when called,
sitting at your side, giving you her paw. She loves to ride in the car and
will constantly watch passing cars, hoping to herd them, as they speed by.
Casey is very good with cats. She also likes to play ball and will
retrieve and return the ball right to you.
She would be a wonderful friend. Casey
loves to run so will need a yard with room to do so, as well as another
border collie ideally. CASEY relinquished
by guardian, moving.
RENA: a beautiful
8 month old border collie, Rena is very playful yet thoughtful and
sensitive. She bonds instantly with people and is friendly and
loving. She will need obedience since no one invested time in
training her yet, but she is very smart and responds well to training.
She is great with other dogs and would be happiest with another dog in the
home. Rena is a young border collie so needs lots of activities
around her to keep her stimulated. Rena has been cat tested and was
very good. RENA was a stray.
the moment of arrival, Gibson was quite clearly unique, with off the
richter scale border collie herding tendencies plus he was a classic
escape artist, jumping the fence five times while at the Farm as well as
at the local pound where he was found as a stray. They are all
border collies but this one had every trait magnified...even nipping the
heels of other dogs. In order to effectively handle the escape
artist tendencies, it meant bonding to him in a big way. We spent
extraordinary amounts of time together hoping to 'ground' this dog into a
sense of belonging. Each escape and each search (one time he was
away all night) brought up such strong emotional reactions to loosing him
so that when he was found, it was celebratory. Heart pounding panic
of finding him hit by a car or never finding him, led to joyous delight
when he was found. Somewhere between 4 - 6 weeks, the magical
relationship took hold and it was quite clear that the bonding had
worked....only too well....giving him up was now impossible. Our
hearts were connected way beyond the normal foster relationship.
So, when John's son, Cameron,
pushed the decision by requesting that Gibson stay to be his sheepherding
partner, taking lessons together and forging a working experience, beyond
what he'd done with all the other border collies he'd met on the Farm, the
decision was finalized. So, Gibson joined our Glen Highland Farm
pack and fit in as if he'd been here all along.
GIBSON, a fantastic tri
color purebred, 2 years old. Gibson is incredibly affectionate,
craving connection with people. He will come up and sit at your
feet, lay his head in your lap and push his nose at your hand to be petted
and loved. Though he's as sweet as can be, he is still a classic
border collie in energy level and needs room to run and activities to
occupy his mind. He's very good with other dogs, especially female
border collies who he seems to prefer. He just loves Casey! Gibson
is also obedient and seems to have some history of being yelled at, as he
will cower when fearful. Gibson is a more sensitive border
collie, can be skittish at times and lacks confidence, needing to feel
safe and bonded with a human. It's possible his history has caused him to
be fearful so he'll need proper socialization to gain back that
confidence. He is starting to trust those days are over
and learning that he can play freely here at the farm. Gibson is
able to jump six foot fencing so will need electronic fencing to contain
him. Gibson weighs approximately 45 pounds, typical in size. Gibson
has been cat tested and was very good. GIBSON was a stray taken to a local
sweet, good natured Prince finally found his forever home in MA where
he'll be the constant companion to an older woman who is an incredible dog
lover (you can see her former beloved dog - Muffy's memoriam on our site)
She and her daughter fell in love with Prince and will patiently care for
him as he transitions into their home...and love him forever. After
7 months at the Farm, we're so pleased that Prince will now have a loving
home of his own.
Prince is a spectacular purebred Border Collie, as regal as they come. He
is by far, the most affectionate, good-natured and obedient border collie
ever to come into rescue. He's beautiful and carries himself like a
dog that's full of confidence but his past guardians didn't help him
blossom into the fully confident dog he could become. That's why
Prince has a Border Collie Angel looking out for him as he waits for his
new forever family.
Four & 1/2 years old, Prince is full of energy to
toss toys into the air and entertain himself and he loves to run free in
the acres on the Farm because his history was not that way....he was tied
to a dog house day and night with the constant restriction of a chain.
This history makes him nervous and uncomfortable with lots of new
experiences, but after some time here, he's gotten better and better.
He had became a creature of habit due to the circumstances, so now, he
feels safe when he has the same routine, albeit not restricted like
before. Prior to that, he lived with a farmer where he herded
cattle and was abused and yelled at while working. He's since been
tested on sheep and has an incredible sensitivity to being guided by
someone who gently leads him rather than dominates him, making him wrong
for using his instinct. However, Prince does not need to work sheep
or cattle to be happy. In fact, he is craving the companionship of
someone who loves him, understand his needs and allows him to enjoy a new
life without anger and with freedom to move.
will never jump up on anyone, get up on furniture or grab for food.
Instead, he patiently and gently takes food, waits for your direction and
is very eager to please. We often see this behavior in dogs who have
been mistreated which is why they make such incredible, loving, loyal
companions once the right person adores them.
|What Prince reallys
needs is a home that is predictable with a routine where he can count on a
place to eat, a warm place to lie down at night, a yard to race around in
and watch the action and someone who loves him. He won't thrive in a
situation where he's taken into chaos, expected to go everywhere in the
car and introduced carelessly into new situations. With patience and
thoughtfulness, he will adapt. Without that caring, he will shut
down, assuming he's done something wrong. Also, since Prince
herded cattle, he does not like other dogs coming into his 'space' or
face, so he will growl or snap to make them go away (very similar behavior
used in moving 3500 lb cattle) so he's a wonderful solo dog. On
leash, he can easily be managed when other dogs come around, but off leash
with pushy dogs, he will not be passive.
Prince came to the Farm on Memorial Day and
has acclimated beautifully to enjoying the activity of the Farm. He
was the most beloved dog for the inner city kids at the Camp who came
every day to see him, practice Tellington Touch massage on him and playing
with him. He was adored because of his sweet, affectionate nature.
Great with kids, great with people and asking for little, but to be loved
and cared for, Prince is ready to go to a home now. He needs people
who are patient, gentle and desire a truly heartfelt relationship with a
Border Collie, with a Prince. PRINCE
relinquished by guardian to a local pound.
found her forever home in NY with a pack of furry friends - a german
shepherd and two whippets - she and Bjorn, the shepherd, were love at
first sight, playing and vocalizing their new friendship. Plus, Tess
has a wonderful young girl who will be taking her through 4-H obedience
events and possibly agility! Tess also gets to sleep every night in
a beautiful 2
year old border collie (possibly a mix), Tess is THE most affectionate,
loving dog, very comfortable meeting new people and offering kisses to
everyone. She also stands on her hind legs and puts her front paws
together in a little 'air pawwing' to greet you! She is very good
with other dogs, loves to play and run and yet, will settle calmly.
She is keenly alert, watching everything around her at all times. Tess is approximately 35 pounds and petite though her pictures may not
convey that. She would probably be happiest with another dog as well
as activities to stimulate her mind. She is fine with cats but will
need some supervision because she is curious and may chase.
TESS was a stray.
gorgeous and brilliant, Clint found his forever home with one of our
foster families who just decided they couldn't part with him. Clint, also
had some challenging issues which required a special home able to handle
him so we're sooo pleased that Clint landed safely, rather than being put
to death. A beautiful sweet dog, Clint just needed some additional
ongoing guidance to help him. Clint now lives in Ct.
Clint is a very energetic 15 month old
purebred, who enjoys ball, Frisbee and stick. He learns quickly, and is a
good fly ball or agility candidate, Clint has yet to show any herding
instincts. He is extremely affectionate and loves to snuggle and give
kisses. He is somewhat fearful of new situations and people, and needs his
person to remain in the alpha role so he can gain confidence. Good with
other dogs, even when he firsts meets them. Clint is house trained and
knows come, sit and lay down. His foster parents are working with him, but
he will still need some obedience work for stay and pulling on the leash.
Clint will do best in a home that understands the young border collie's
need for consistent physical exercise, possibly with another active dog.
While he is very affectionate with children, he will placed with older,
teenage children. CLINT was relinquished by guardian due to
divorce. Clint is being fostered in CT.
fast, fun & furiously in love with soccer, Oz found a home with two
young boys who also love soccer...they've been playing with their current
dog, Ruby and now it will be Oz & Ruby together! Oz is now
living in Rhode Island with a wonderful family.
OZ: a 1 1/2 year
old purebred (with papers), Oz is extremely friendly with people, eager to
play and race around. He's great with other dogs and full of energy
with classic border collie traits. Oz's favorite toy (so far) is the
wiggly giggly ball which he moves around the farm like a soccer ball,
tossing it into the air, scooting it at high speeds all over the farm,
thoroughly entertaining himself! He is quite skilled and a blast to
watch. Oz is very smart, responsive to people and affectionate.
He'll probably be placed with another dog due to his high energy level.
Oz is about 40 pounds, typical in size. Oz
is trained on the invisible fence and good with cats.
Oz can easily be the solo dog in the
home but requires a very active family, ideally kids or teenagers who
would love to play 'soccer' with him and teach him lots of other games.
While he's a loving, calm dog inside, he needs lots of mental and physical
play outside. Oz was relinquished by
his guardian due to a change in lifestyle. He was originally 'rescued' as
a puppy when he was being auctioned off as a prize at a charity event.
found her forever home unexpectedly with her foster furdad who had been
hoping for a 2nd dog to join his current border collie, but hadn't really
planned on it happening so soon. After two months of giving Syd the
special care she needed, he felt he couldn't part with her. Syd now lives
in Buffalo NY and obviously enjoys the snow!!
SYD: A 2 year old purebred, Sydney
is most definitely a Border Collie through and through. She is VERY HIGH
energy and LOVES her frisbee or ball or stick or anything else you can
fetch. (She ran for two hours this morning and still wanted to play ball
when she came in). She seems to get along well with people and bonds quite
well, she's a cuddler! She is very intense and very focused, but so far
ignores cars, trucks, joggers and bicycles. She did well at the vet and
took to the exam quite well, she was a little stressed but showed no
aggression. She doesn't mind being picked up but doesn't like her feet or
ears touched and isn't crazy about being combed. Syd is crate trained,
knows commands for food, sit, down and outside. She is also very
agile and would make a good flyball dog since she is VERY toy focused and
loves to play fetch with sticks and toys. She can probably jump a 5
foot fence so will need electronic fencing in the yard. She is a
wonderful border collie! Syd is very sweet, loves people and
kids and doesn't have a heavy herding instinct, she just likes to play.
She's also very obedient, great on leash and will retrieve a ball and drop
it at your feet. She'd be fine in any home as the solo dog. SYD was relinquished from her
guardian due to a change in work where she was never home to give Syd what
she needs. Syd is being fostered near Buffalo, NY.
now Skip, has a great furry playmate to race around with and roll
over and chase through the yard, Travis, a golden retriever. He instantly
connected to Travis and his new guardians, happily right at home with lots
of love and attention plus a pal to run off lots of energy! Lyle now lives
LYLE, loving Lyle is 1
1/2 years old purebred Border Collie, completely affectionate with people
from the minute he meets them. He is a gentle dog even when he jumps up to
say hello. He is a more sensitive Border Collie who doesn't like
chaos and will retreat to lay down away from whatever is disturbing him.
His favorite spot is on a couch, if there is one, where he'll quietly curl
up in the corner. Lyle is definitely a more mellow Border Collie but
does love to play with other dogs. He'd be happiest with one or two
other dogs, rolling around together, chasing each other and creating fun
games like dogs do. Ultimately, though, he craves a connection with
people and wants to bond instantly which is evident in his sweet eyes.
Lyle is typical in size, approximately 40 pounds. Lyle has been cat
tested and was very good. LYLE was a
found a wonderful home with a loving couple who feel he's the perfect
additional to the family. They are semi-retired and able to give him lots
of patient love as he learns to trust people even more - Woody loved the
treats and goodies and happily headed to the car for his new life! Woody
now lives in New Jersey.
WOODY, a 6 month
old Border Collie mix, little Woody is a sweet, gentle little guy, truly
looking for someone to love. He's a little diamond in the rough
cause he's a bit shy now until he gets used to everything at the Farm.
He's always wagging his tail no matter who is around but he's a bit timid
upon first meetings. That's also how he reacts to other dogs but is
eager to be with them, too. He's very, very alert though, watching
everything that goes on around him much like a Border Collie but he shows
no signs of nipping or herding. He just wants to crawl into your
lap. Woody has the markings of a Border Collie with a coat
that looks like it will grow long like a rough coat. Other than his
ears, he'd probably pass as a purebred. (His former guardians cut
his tail fur so it looks a little odd now) Woody is 29 pounds and probably
will grow to be a medium size dog, about 35 pounds. Part of his hesitation
around people probably came from his former guardians who were uneducated
about dogs, leaving his puppy size choke collar on him so tight that it
had to be cut off at the pound plus the children were apparently teasing
him while he ate, so it's anybody's guess what he endured. Yet, he's
as sweet as can be and wants to be with people! WOODY
relinquished to a pound.
Woolie Bear loves people and found his new forever family in NJ.
Former border collie guardians, they wanted a 2nd dog for their tiny mix,
Roux. Within a short time, it was clear that Woolie liked being the
bear to little Roux and his new guardians felt he was the perfect addition
to their family. They loved him!
WOOLIE a 9 month old
border collie mix, Woolie is fun-loving, playful and full of puppy
energy. He loves to lick faces and get attention as well as happily
share his good nature. Woolie is interested in everybody and
everything! He is rambunctious and good with most dogs, though
sometimes has some scuffles (probably due to his age). He would be
best in a home with another dog to work off his energy and will need
consistent obedience to reinforce some rules. Woolie is a very loyal
companion and will follow you everywhere and rest calmly at your feet once
settled. He is very people focused and happily walks by your side,
exploring new things. He is a very good natured dog who loves everyone
around him and will adapt to wherever he is placed. Woolie just
loves to be loved and will give that back ten times over. He's a bit
mischievous but sweet as can be. Woolie is too interested in cats so
will go to a dog only home though he'd only chase them, not hurt
them. He is about 45 pounds. Woolie
was a stray. Woolie is being fostered in Southern New
little Pippin found his forever home with a loving family and a
little girl in central NY. Pippin's guardians had a border collie
before but needed a pup since their little girl has some physical
challenges and needs a more gentle dog like Pippin to grow up with.
Upon meeting, Pippin instantly licked her face and cuddled with her, the
two of them bonding in a very special way. Pippin's human furmom is
a veterinarian so he'll not only be loved, he'll be very well cared for,
PIPPIN: a 4 month
old border collie (possibly mix), Pippin is sweet and gentle and very
bright. He is always watching everything around him with keen interest and
ready to play when another dog comes around. He is a bit shy, more
like a thoughtful, sensitive border collie rather than a boisterous puppy.
Pippin is fine with cats, would be good with another dog, preferably
border collie size or smaller and a fairly calm household. He is
very affectionate and loving and eager to bond with people. Pippin
was a stray, due to be euthanized.
Shelby, met his "twin", a smooth coat border
collie/shepherd mix and now lives with his buddy in Ct, with new guardians
who instantly fell in love him. His original name is Shelby, the
name of the dog they who recently passed on, so much to their surprise,
another Shelby is now in their life. The two will be hiking the
woods of Ct and living to play where they even have their own 'dog couch',
a special couch covered just for dogs!
SELBY: an 8 month
old beautiful border collie mix, Selby could be part belgian shepherd
(though he is not large) but he is more border collie size. Selby is very very friendly with
everyone, eager to play with other dogs and an all around well tempered
dog. He has lots of energy so would be happiest with another dog and
definitely wants to interact with people. He is very smart and
very responsive to people. Selby is approximately 45 pounds and
typical in size of a border collie. Selby has been cat tested and was very good.
Selby was relinquished due to his energy level and due to be
euthanized at the pound.
found her new family and now lives in Buffalo NY. Former border
collie lovers, her new guardians missed having the brilliant, funny,
intense manners of a border collie in their home so when they met Moli,
they chuckled, delighted to see such a sweet, typically border collie
girl! In moments, it was quite clear she had chosen them, too, not
to be moved from the sides of the children, content to sit for affection
forever! That is, unless the ball was around! Then,
she'd take a moment to play, then come back for more kisses.
MOLI, a 1 1/2 year old
border collie, is a very,
very friendly girl, eager to meet everyone and be involved in everything.
She is also quite affectionate & sweet and wants to be loved and with
people. Moli is also great with other dogs, loves to run and play and also
herd and nip the other dogs. She's an active border collie so would
be best with an active home - another dog or kids - she's very easy going
and playful. Moli also is ball oriented though not obsessed with the ball.
She is very expressive, with ears that go up when she's busy and occupied
and back when she's looking for affection and attention - very cute!
She is about 15 pounds overweight and when trim, will be about 35- 40
pounds. Moli has a shortened tail, which seems like it was damaged rather
than docked since it's not short but not full length either. Molli is good with cats but may chase, though not hurt them. Moli was relinquished by her guardian who was elderly and
lost her eyesight.
A gentle giant, larger than the typical border collie, his sweet, shy
nature caught the eye of his new guardians in central NY, where he now
lives. They loved his friendliness and kind nature, even the 10 year
old golden retriever of the house, Sadie, voted yes for Ness to join them.
Ness gladly accepted lots of kisses from the family's fourteen year old
NESS: a 2 year
old border collie mix, Ness is a very gentle, affectionate guy. He's also
shy at first, a little bit unsure if harm will come to him, so will need a
patient, loving guardian to help him feel safe. Once he bonds, he is
so friendly and playful. Ness is very good with other dogs of all
sizes, with no interest in being dominant. He is what we'd consider
to be a sensitive, thoughtful dog, always aware of everything around him.
Ness is approximately 60 pounds and tall for a border collie, though he
does not jump up and is very low-key so does not seem large in size. Ness
has been cat tested and was very good.

Sam was fostered in a home before coming to the Farm, so once here,
he was ready to go! He found his wonderful new family right away and
is now living in MA with a young boy who will teach him all the fun
fetching the ball! He has another border collie friend, a 10 year
old, who will wisely give him doggie guidance, too.
a 1 year old tricolor border collie, possibly mix, Sam is a very sweet,
affectionate, people oriented dog, ready to relate instantly to anyone who
is around. He's very playful, easy-going and has lots of puppy energy.
He's up for anything and ready to learn and is eager to please. Sam
is good with other dogs and learning the rules of dog play. He's
also good with cats but will chase them. Sam was a stray due to be
found his forever home with 3 other border collies (one is Jett, who was
adopted from the farm!) and two guardians who adore everything about the
breed and especially Flash who cuddles in the bed at night, races around
with their dogs and makes them chuckle with his jumps in the air! Flash
now lives in New Jersey.
brilliant and agile Border Collie, Flash is also a cuddler and truly loves
to jump in your lap and wiggle his way under your hands for a tummy rub.
He'll also nudge your face to get even closer! When sleeping in a
bed, Flash cuddles just like a human, head to head, happily resting all
night. He just blossoms when he's adored. He really wants a close, loving
human relationship. This 8 month old
purebred pup, has papers and is registered with American Border Collie
Association. Flash is very alert, very fast and is showing all the signs
of a highly intelligent, tuned in border collie. It's quite possible he'd
be good in agility or flyball, but Flash would be
incredible at frisbee as he jumps from a standstill right up into your
arms and around your neck....for affection, of course! He is very toy focused and
responds beautifully to people, including strangers. He is a bit shy
at first with other dogs but is getting lots of socialization here at the
Farm and loves to play with other dogs once comfortable. Flash is a
more sensitive border collie who will need continued exposure to other
dogs and new situations so he'll gain more confidence. Flash is
almost full size and approximately 35 pounds now. Flash
has been cat tested and was very good. Flash
was relinquished to rescue because of his energy level and allergies in
