Click here....  Krystal walks!

A FINAL UPDATE!!

GREAT NEWS! Krystal has full permission to run! The vet said 100% normal use is called for now - just let her be a puppy! So, she's off to run, jump, fall, on furniture, up and down stairs, she can play like everyone else and she certainly is: "she is running in the yard and playing!!! RUNNING!!! She wants to constantly play with us. She jumped all over me. Grabbed my shirt collar.... my hair.... a normal puppy!" We are so happy to report that this little pup beat the odds and will have a wonderful active life.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO WISHED HER WELL AND SUPPORTED HER CARE.

Her foster family is thrilled to see her progress, almost to normal. They put in long hours and many vet visits to make sure this little pup got everything she needed to recover and she's definitely on her way. Krystal is not out of the woods totally since her muscle on the right leg could seize up and prevent movement plus there is no surety of the growth of the length of the leg but her left hip is working just fine and she clearly is voting to walk and run! 

We are so excited for Krystal and happy to announce that as might be expected, her foster family has fallen deeply in love. Little Krystal will grow up having all the care she needs and all the physical support to insure her legs work as best they can. Most importantly, her heart works wonders on everyone she meets and that will continue to be the case as she joins in workshops at Spring Farm Cares, one of the wisest teachers in a small package! She is joining the Spring Farm animals who share their spirits and hearts at the sanctuary.

Thank you all for supporting her needs and helping with your heartfelt love and caring. She felt that from everyone who helped to make this all possible.

We'll continue to update Krystal's progress over the next few months.

ELENA: At eleven pounds and 10 weeks old, Elena met a rough fate early when someone backed the car right over her. Her little body took it hard with a fractured hip on the left side and a fractured leg on the right, separating the joint away from the leg bones, by far one of the worst xrays to see. Elena's pain must have been unbearable.  She was brought to us by her guardians who could not handle the vet needs and we rushed her to our favorite Orthopedic surgeon who has worked miracles before with other rescues at the Farm. Elena underwent surgery Friday, the 14th, on the right leg and Monday, the 17th, on the left hip. She came through the procedures well and though feeling pain, it's far different from the days before when she was hobbling around undiagnosed.  Of course, Elena is charming everyone at the vet hospital as well as all of us who met her. A little bundle of sweetness, Elena's got the spirit to survive this though we are not certain how her right leg will heal. The good news will be full use, the bad news could be a shorter leg due to the impact on the growth plate or potentially amputation. We are all holding good  thoughts for this little pup and so thankful that she made it to us at the Farm.  A special thanks to Dr. Paul Bookbinder of Upstate Veterinary Surgical Center in Canastota NY who stayed late Friday to make sure surgery happened right away before her bones began setting, making any help impossible.


BRYSON quickly fit into his new family, racing on the trails at the Farm and chasing after his new canine friend, Jedi. He loved all the attention from his new guardians who were smitten with his good nature and sweet ways plus his gorgeous looks. Bryson will get to trying herding and agility and flyball and all the other Border Collie activities he wants. His new guardians visited the Farm and camp this summer and were happy to return to add him to their family. He will never worry for love or food again and be adored in his new life in Maryland.

BRYSON: A 4 month old Border Collie, Bryson is a very alert, attentive boy who bonds quickly with people. He wants to learn and has all the energy to match whatever he tackles.

Bryson was pulled out of a bad situation by a volunteer in Vermont who wanted him to have a better life. 


NORMA found the perfect life with her new guardian who wanted a beloved canine companion to help her in her practice and join her in her life. Norma will be with her each day in family counseling sessions, where she helps children, teenagers and adults who seek assistance. Seeing Norma with the inner city children in Camp Border Collie for Kids showed everyone here that she has a special gift with everyone but especially kids and can turn around their pains to healing and joy.

She previously lived with Tam so is used to having a canine friend but if someone was around a lot, she'd be fine alone, too. Norma is very good natured and very sweet.

BO found a new guardian who loves the breed and wanted a real companion to run with each day and explore on hikes with each weekend. He and Bo will be playing lots of frisbee each day, too and will be constant companions. Their first walk together on the Farm's trails clicked so well for both of them, it was clear they'd each found the perfect fit. Bo now lives in Massachusetts.

BO: A 4 1/2 year old Border Collie, Bo is very very smart and bonds quickly to a person, eager to please and happy to join in any activity. He is a great frisbee dog and loves all toys and already knows lots of commands for enjoying continual games. He loves the water and will eagerly swim. He has also succeeded in agility and is very athletic, happy to do any sport. Bo would thrive living with someone where he could be their companion in an active life. He is about 50 pounds and good with cats. Bo is a marvelous example of a mature BC with tons of energy to do anything and everything while putting his relationship to people as paramount to his happiness. He is good with other dogs and previously lived in a multiple dog household so would enjoy another canine friend though could be the solo dog, too. Bo was relinquished from PA guardians who adored him but had another dog who fought with Bo and they felt he deserved a happier life. 



JESTER & JAXIE went together to a new life that is wonderful, joining 3 other dogs from the Farm as well as other canine friends, a pack of nine. These two will fit in beautifully and happily headed out to their new home with their furDad who they absolutely loved. Their furMom came from California for a visit not long ago and again fell in love so a cross country trip to get them west came true again. Good friends of the farm, we are thrilled that Jaxie & Jester will join their home and hearts, joining Ben, Shep and Rio who made the same trip the same way long ago!

JESTER: A 2 1/2 year old Border Collie, Jester is a wonderfully affectionate, good natured, friendly guy. He enjoys meeting everyone and greets everyone with the same nudge of the arm or cuddly hello. He loves people. Jester is also quite the herder, happy to herd other dogs or anything that moves. He gets along beautifully with other dogs so could easily enjoy canine friends or being with a person who involves him completely in their life. Jester is very well balanced, smart and sweet. He is carrying a bit of extra weight which will come off at the Farm easily. He is good with cats. He previously lived on a hobby farm with goats and horses and was allowed to run free which is probably how he lost his front leg, chasing a car. He was picked up by Animal Control and the guardians did not want to pay money to reclaim him. The upstate NY shelter staff works with the Farm so were happy to have him come to us. 



Sweet EMIE found her forever home with a family that adored her instantly. The amazing thing to see was how she picked her family, too. She absolutely loved the two boys and bonded with them as if they were long lost friends. Emie will be adored and also be the constant companion to her new furMom plus they'll be back in a few months to find a friend for her! She happily headed out to her new life in upstate NY

EMIE: A 5 month old Border Collie mix pup, this little wonder girl is full of energy and non-stop play. She is fun, fun, fun and really needs another young canine friend to be happy. She does love people just as much, cuddling with you at night, her head by yours right on the pillow. She just has to be near her person and loves being close. Emie is a wonderful little pup with so much potential, super athletic and eager to learn anything. She is good in the car, settles well when inside but for sure, needs an active home with plenty of room to run. The pictures don't show her beauty - she is just gorgeous. We feel convinced that Emie is a Border Collie/ Portugese Water Dog...she looks so similar to a recent pup we met and acts so similar too. She is fine with cats and is about 25 pounds. Emie was a stray in Long Island, picked up by caring dog lovers who made sure she got to safety at the Farm. 



WHEELER now known as Simon, went to his forever home today (post neutering) where he'll be endlessly playing with his new Border Collie friend and be the constant companion to his new guardians. They fell in love with him a few weeks ago visiting the Farm when he had just come from the shelter, sick with a respiratory infection. Ready to go, he happily cuddled with them and played with his new friend before heading out to his new life in NY.

WHEELER: An 8 month old Border Collie, Wheeler is a love bug, a really sweet, happy guy who loves attention and is happy to cuddle. He also loves to play with toys and will make up games to entertain himself or happily enjoy retrieving. He is a great little guy who will be a wonderful companion. Wheeler currently has a respiratory infection and will be adopted shortly once he is well. Lucky for him, he's already met his new people and when well, will meet his new Border Collie friend and start his new life! He came from PA as a stray at a truck stop, hence the name Wheeler! 



COMET found the perfect home for him- he'll be the constant companion to his new guardians for tons of ball play and he'll also have a blast on serious hikes. He'll be going everywhere they go on mountains and into forests and certainly keeping up with an active life. He, of course, was thrilled to have someone who can really throw the ball and he happily headed out to his new life in central NY.

COMET: An 1 yr old Border Collie, Comet is an amazing athlete, ready to play ball and focused on every throw like it was the first. He is clearly a ball nut, making up his own game of '2-ball' where he simultaneously plays with both. He also loves all other toys and would thrive in a situation where he could be with an active person or doing sports. He is great with other dogs and would enjoy a young Border Collie friend or could possibly be a solo dog, depending on the activity level. He is very calm and quiet inside but all action outside. Comet is a thoughtful dog and would benefit from someone who understands the mental needs of a BC, as well as the physical. He is about 40 pounds, a bit taller than the average height and good with cats. He was relinquished to the Farm from NJ by people who could not meet his needs. 


CARR found a wonderful home with 40 acres for exploring and play, plus two friends who think just like he does, frisbee and ball players, too. The trio were immediately comfortable together, went for a ride in town and had the perfect chemistry for a great life together. Besides enjoying a doggie paradise, he'll be going to school spending time where one of his new guardians' teaches. He'll be the hit of the place, just like he was in Camp Border Collie for Kids, a natural with children. Carr happily headed out to his new life in Vermont. With a snowy wintry day, he's glad his guardians made the trip!

CARR: A 2 year old Border Collie, Carr is a ball nut, who loves to race and chase in any good game of throwing the ball. He is playful and fun and very smart, connecting to people quickly. Carr also observes everything around him and thinks through what is going on, taking a bit of time to get comfortable, classic with the breed. He is very focused and fast and also quite a cuddler, a real sweet guy. Carr is a young BC so likes to play with other Border Collies and quickly makes up herding games. He is ok with cats and about 40 pounds. He was living with another border collie previously but the family could not meet his energy needs. He will do best with people focused on activities that use his mind and all his energy. His name was Caramel previously. He was relinquished to the Farm from NJ. 



MCGEE found his forever home with another Border Collie where he'll be racing and playing and exploring together. They instantly connected for lots of play and he happily cuddled for belly rubs with his new guardian. McGee will have a family loving him and a life of Border Collie fun, even skiing in the winter! He now lives in upstate NY.

MCGEE: A 3 year old Border Collie, McGee is a sensitive, thoughtful dog who observes everything around him and wants to think things through. He is easy going and eager to meet people and other dogs as he takes in any new situation, clearly a very smart Border Collie. McGee is not as intense as some others so could be a great companion. He loves the car and is great in the house. He is good with cats and weighs about 45 pounds. McGee lived in one home from a pup til now when his guardians in PA could no longer care for him. 



BAKER found his new guardians quickly when he won their hearts with his focused frisbee catches combined with his cuddly ways. He spent the night at the nearby Inn with his new canine friend and guardians who quickly knew they'd made the right decision when he happily snoozed near their bed, a very content boy. Baker will clearly be cherished as their beloved Border Collie and he'll enjoy life at his new lakefront home where he'll be playing endlessly and be their constant companion. He now lives in upstate NY.

BAKER: A 7 year old Border Collie, Baker is a remarkable athlete, incredible at ball and catching a frisbee, rarely missing it. He is fast and focused and very fun. Baker is also the perfect canine citizen, responsive and obedient and very happy to take direction, eager to please. He is very very smart and loves to be in a relationship, close with someone. We believe that Baker deserves a wonderful home, regardless of his special need.  His condition, laryngeal paralysis, occurs because a nerve stops sending the signal to move the larynx flaps open and closed - so in his case, the airway is always open.  It also means that things can go down his throat, like food or any other small object, and nothing stops them. What he will need is a setting where he is monitored, is a bit calmer, and one or two other Border Collies would be ideal -  since he loves to herd other dogs and gets along famously with every dog. His life should be fairly normal but a bit calmer. Baker races around like normal, as energetic as the other 20 Farm dogs he is playing with each day and a very happy Border Collie. He still 'hacks' in the morning and evening and has trouble swallowing but he can eat just fine. Baker eats canned dog food, which is softer and easier to swallow, from an elevated bowl. His treats are canned cheese or peanut butter which he can easily lick versus hard dog treats which would cause him to cough.  Baker is a classic Border Collie: brilliant, people oriented and truly will be a fantastic friend to the person who opens their heart and home to him.  



BEAR found his forever home where he'll be loved and adored all the time (which he of course loves) plus he'll have his own nine acres for roaming and playing frisbee and he'll have his own canine friend (he met on another day) who will be his companion. The two of them got along great and his new guardians loved his spirit and spunkiness. Bear now lives in upstate NY, not too far from the Farm.

BEAR: A 10 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Bear lives up to his name...he is a friendly, loving, cuddle bug who loves everyone. He is happiest with people and happy to say hello anytime anywhere. He is also a focused ball player and frisbee nut, too. Bear is great with other dogs and loves to play. As he knocks off the weight, he'll be back to more fast paced running which he clearly wants to do. He keeps up with the 20 Farm dogs just fine even now. Bear is good with cats. He was relinquished due to an illness in the family which left no time for him. He came from PA.




ISHA found her forever home right in her foster home. An unplanned adoption, this sweet, shy girl blossomed into a frisbee fanatic and just loved her foster family, especially her furDAD that they just couldn't part with her. She adored him and as everyone said who saw them together, 'she is his dog'...so Isha will have a fantastic life with other Border Collies and canine friends living in Vermont, hiking and playing and exploring, forever cherished. We'll even get to see her since her foster family volunteers for the Farm.

ISHA: A 1 yr old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Isha is a classic action-oriented BC who loves to be with her person, very affectionately loving them. She also loves the action of other dogs and will enjoy racing and chasing with other young BC's. Isha is an incredible frisbee dog and can easily catch whatever is thrown her way. Isha would be a wonderful sport dog: she is super focused on toys; ready to retrieve and respond; and incredibly smart and agile, all perfect traits for an agility or flyball dog. She  is also a serious water lover, absolutely happy to swim and jump in any puddle, pond or tub!   She would thrive in a home where she could play any toy games and is great off leash with good recall.  Isha would be happiest with another young BC who loves toys as much as she does. She is about 40 pounds and best with dog savvy cats since she is curious. She will not hurt a cat but loves to herd a bit. She was given up by her PA guardian who could not meet her needs. Isha is being fostered in VT



BUSTER found his forever home with three other canine friends, two of which loved getting to know him and they were a great trio very quickly. He'll have a great place to explore, including horses, chickens and bunnies! Buster jumped at the gate with joy waiting for his new person to come take him to the car to head to his new life! He now lives in PA.

BUSTER: A 3 year old Border Collie mix, Buster is a really gentle, affectionate dog. He is one of the sweetest dogs in rescue, so happy to be with someone and so easy to be with. He enjoys exploring the fields at the Farm, hanging with the other dogs around and loves a good belly rub and pat on the head. Buster is very very good natured and would love being the constant companion to a person. He is just fine with other dogs and in fact, lived with three labs previously but really blossoms with people around. Buster is about 45 pounds and fine with cats. He was given up when his former guardian who had him since a pup, moved to NY and could not longer keep him. 



PHAEDRA
: A 4 month old Border Collie mix pup, Phaedra is brilliant and a real spit-fire, ready to try anything and do anything. She is fearless and fun and clearly a busy girl. She was in foster care and given to the Farm to place in an appropriate home. She came to us from CT.
PHAEDRA found her forever home with a wonderful dog trainer who met her while in foster care and absolutely fell in love! She's been on hikes already and easily keeps up with their pack, bounding over ledges and into creeks. She's been to training classes and wows everyone, including her new guardians who are so excited to have her join their lives. She's going to be plenty busy with tons of activities and she'll even get a chance to do therapy work with young children who have suffered traumas. Phaedra is already working her magic with everyone with her wonderful friendly nature! She's even attended a baby shower! Phaedra now lives in Vermont.


MEMPHIS found his forever home with a relative of one of our caretakers who knew immediately he would be the perfect dog! Once her sister met him, she completely agreed. Of course, Memphis gave his incredible toothy grin as his vote, too. Memphis will be joining two other canine friends in a wonderful life of fun and exploring and lots of smiles and grins!

MEMPHIS: A Border Collie/Collie mix, Memphis is a wonderful, sweet, loving dog whose good looks match his great temperament. He is very obedient and easy going, happy to be with his person. Memphis also loves toys of any kind and will happily retrieve and squeak and play endlessly. He is a mix so has no herding tendencies and is fitting in best with the Border Collies that are not heavy herders. He loves to play with other dogs and could easily fit in with other gentle dogs. He wouldn't do well with a strong dominant dog since he is more submissive. Memphis is fine with cats and weighs about 60 pounds. He came to the Farm from NY guardians who were moving. He lived in one home since a pup, originally adopted from another rescue.
