HOP found the best
home for him with two other Border Collies and a Lab friend (not all
pictured) plus his own little boy who has grown up knowing exactly what
makes Border Collies happy - ball, ball, ball! Hop quickly played
and raced after his new canine friend plus gave his puppy kisses to his
new guardians, who traveled from CT just for him!
KAZZ: A 4 1/2 month old Border Collie,
Kazz is a lover, a cuddler and a chaser, playing endlessly with his
sister, Elly. He is incredibly sweet and just learning about exploring the
world. Kazz is good natured and easy going, not overly intense though he
will need a canine friend for play. He is about 25 pounds. He came
from a NJ shelter.
QUINN & KAZZ
were so adorable that they won the hearts of their new guardians who
decided they had to have them both in their family. Former adopters of
Andy, they came for one pup to finish off their trio but once they saw
Andy, Oliver, Quinn and Kazz together, they were sure it would be
wonderful to enjoy them all. These four Border Collies will surely have it
made, with lots of love from the kids plus tons of play and about 10 acres
for exploring in New Hampshire...a perfect Border Collie life!
QUIN is also full of energy to play but also has a quieter side, very
eager to be with his person.
MEGG found her forever
home with guardians who love Border Collies and were thrilled with Megg's
intensity and sweetness, all in one package. She responded quickly to
whatever was asked and showed all her eagerness to work, waiting for some
direction. Megg will have a great life, as the constant companion to her
new FurMom, going everywhere with her including a nearby Farm plus plenty
of outdoor activities and a try at sheepherding. Megg now lives in CT.
MEGG: An petite 9 month old Border Collie,
Megg is all action. She is smart, focused and very athletic. A very
bright, eager learner, Megg could easily do any sport. She is fast and so
responsive. Megg is also a real cuddler, loving attention with her people.
She's great with other Border Collies and races around the Farm at fast
speed, joining in the herding action. She is only going to be placed in a
seasoned Border Collie home with another young dog. She is non stop play.
Megg will herd cats so would be ok with cats used to living with the
breed. Megg came to the Farm from CT.
Sweet camera shy Magie
brought tears of joy to our eyes today when she found her forever home!
One of the smartest, sweetest Border Collies we've met, she waited a year
for just the right place for the rest of her life. She'll get to keep
track of an 80 acre Farm, meeting and greeting all who come to visit as
well as keeping an eye on the chickens, ewes and horses. Magie loves a job
and at 10 years old this fall, she can still be the best working Border
Collie we know, very responsible for being the partner to her new
guardians. We'll miss her deeply since she worked the yard at the GHF all
the time here. A special thanks to Roberta and Jonathan Bray who fostered
Magie for awhile to give her all the focused attention she deserved while
she waited for her new life to begin. We'll be enjoying Magie stories from
her new Farm in NY.
10 year old Border Collie with
ABCA papers, Magie is a loving, brilliant girl with a focus on people and
action both. She loves to play ball and frisbee and she also loves to be
in the middle of all that is going on. She is incredibly sweet and easy
going, adapting easily to new situations. Magie is a classic Border Collie
who has all the calm confidence that comes with this breed. When she was
younger, she used to herd geese and it shows because she still has a ton
of focus when the action happens. Magie is very gentle and a real cuddler.
She would be happiest as the companion to her person without other
dogs. She was relinquished to the farm from her PA guardians
who had grandkids and felt her working tendencies would be too much.
She is about 45 pounds and good with cats. She is trained on the invisible
fence. Mag is in a foster home in upstate NY and can be seen at
BAXTER charmed his new
guardians instantly, soon as he gave them that wonderful sweet look just
like in the picture on the site! Of course, he ran all around with his
squirrel toy, having a blast and then joined them walking all around the
field til they sat down and he cuddled quickly by their sides. He'd found
his people and headed out the door to his new life in NY, adored and
understood since they had a Border Collie before.
BAXTER: A 11 month old Border Collie with
Baxter is a lively, fun, happy dog who loves to be with people. He is
interested in everything going on around him and happy to be in the
action. He is very very sweet and good natured. He is also quite athletic
and eager to try new things. He previously lived with two dogs but is now
learning about Border Collies and how he can make up herding games for
play. Baxter is focused and smart, a good candidate for sports. He is
about 40 pounds, a bit taller than some and not yet tested on cats. He
came from PA, given up due to a relationship break up and move. He came
from a PA breeder.
KAMERON found the
perfect home for her - with guardians who understand Border Collies and
where she'll get a chance to try herding! How much happier could a young
girl be?! Kameron is quite the herder so will do well we bet and even if
not perfect, learn all about her instincts to do what she was meant to do.
She'll also enjoy the great outdoors, hiking and playing with her new
friend who is 100% go, go, go, just like her! She now lives in NJ.
KAMERON: A 1 year old Border Collie,
Kameron is all action! She loves to run and chase and herd border collie
style with other dogs. She's super sweet and loving with everyone, too.
Kameron will need an active home to keep her happy, ideally another Border
Collie. She can be a bit timid at first but once settled, is happy as can
be, a good natured girl. She is about 35 pounds and good with cats. She came from the New England area.
GRACE: A 2 year old
Border Collie, Grace is not only gorgeous, she's smart and very engaging
with a person she trusts and knows. She loves to play with toys of any
kind and is a classic, fast, energetic Border Collie, ready to do anything
asked of her. Grace loves people and while she can be a little shy at
first, once she is content, she loves her person completely, happiest to
be with them as much as possible. Grace loves to chase squirrels and
chipmunks and also cats so will be placed in a home without cats. She is
about 45 pounds and relinquished to the Farm due to inability to meet her
needs. She came from PA.
GRACE & TUCKER
met at the Farm as roomies and loved each other, playing and racing and
chasing, really a wonderful pair and so it's wonderful to see them go to a
new life together! They charmed their new guardians who love this breed
and quickly won their hearts with their sweet and brilliant nature. Grace
and Tucker happily headed out the gate to their new life in NY where
they'll have constant fun playing for sure.
TUCKER: A 11 month old
Border Collie, Tucker is a gorgeous boy, a thinker and a doer. He is
friendly and easygoing in any situation, very comfortable with new places,
people and dogs. Tucker loves playing with other dogs and loves the
frisbee, playing as long as you like! He also settles well indoors, happy
to be with his person. Tucker is good with cats. He was surrendered to the Farm because his NY
guardian could not meet his needs.
DOUGHAL found his
soulmate, if dogs have soulmates because when he met Lily, it was instant
and continual bliss, running, chasing, wrestling, rolling..they were in
heaven playing with each other. Doughal took a break every now and then to
say hello to his new guardians who were thrilled watching this match
unfold but then he of course returned to his canine friend for more and
more fun. They played together the entire hour, non stop...a fantastic
duo! Doughal and Lily and their humans live in PA and we can just imagine
what life is like in their home now!
A 1 year old Border Collie (possible mix), Doughal is a very sweet, energetic boy who
loves people and also loves to play, play, play with other dogs. He
is all about racing and chasing games and would be so happy with the right
canine friend. He is ready to learn and could easily be trained since he's
food oriented and very smart but he needs an outlet for his energy so will
only be placed with another dog. Doughal is a bit taller than the average
BC, about 50 pounds but very lean. Doughal also loves to cuddle, getting
as close as he can for belly rubs and attention, a sweetheart. He is
good with cats. Doughal was a stray from a PA shelter that
works with the Farm.
DAKOTA & CAPPY
found a new life together with another Border Collie, Luke (camera shy!)
who loves to herd and play just like they do, racing around for the ball
and frisbee. They were a great trio instantly and like most Border
Collies, found their rhythm together quickly. Their new guardians were
thrilled to add two more great BC's to their life. This trio will have a
wonderful time exploring their new property, hiking and being the constant
companion to their new FurDad as he works outside. And, their new FurMom
always wanted a petite little girl so Dakota was thrilled to be chosen!
They now live in Maryland.
CAPPY (aka Buddy), a 5 year old
border collie with ABCA papers, is every bit the loving companion his name suggests.
He adores people, including older kids, who he's used to living with.
Cappy is good with cats too. Cappy loves to go for car rides or
to play catch, and will stay right with his person for attention.
He's used to living as a solo dog but is respectful of other dogs and
would probably enjoy canine company as well. He is being
relinquished due to a lack of time for him.
DAKOTA: A 4 1/2 year old petite Border
Collie, this little girl is one frisbee fanatic! She lives for a throw and
is so good at catching pretty much any toss, she's amazing. Dakota is a
wee girl and so fast with quite a herding eye! She is super smart and very
active when it's time to play but can settle inside well. She loves
to swim and will happily retrieve a ball in the water and of course,
out! Dakota is excellent off leash and often goes with volunteers
for trail walks and weekends all over the Farm. She would be a superb
hiking companion. She can be
shy at first so needs a calmer home where she can be the center of
attention. Dakota is about 30 pounds and will herd cats but not hurt them.
She can fit with other Border Collies easily but doesn't like pushy dogs
in her face, very typical of the breed. She was relinquished to the
Farm due to lack of time for her. She was originally from a breeder in
Colorado, living in one home since a puppy and came to us from PA.
Sweet FLEET found two
loving guardians who were drawn to add him to their lives, his sweet
nature and loving ways won their hearts. And, they understand the
quirkiness of Border Collies to find ways to enjoy Fleet and help him be
his very best. He now lives with a canine friend in PA where he'll be
adored. He clearly loved them too though being camera shy, we couldn't
capture this wonderful meeting of the hearts to show the world but he is
most certainly their dog and they are his people.
FLEET : A
5 1/2 year old Border Collie, Fleet is very very gentle and sweet,
enjoying attention and time with his person. He is smart and attentive, a
keen observer. Sometimes, when you're very busy, he'll get your attention
by sitting down, looking directly in your eyes and offering his paw,
almost as if to say, "hey slow down and come hang with me"! He
is friendly with everyone he meets. He also loves to make up herding games
with other border collies so will be placed with another BC, even
younger than him. He loves to play. Fleet is very good natured and
easy going, though enjoys chasing and running like any BC. Fleet herds
children when they are active so will be placed in an adult home. He is
about 40 pounds and is good with cats. He was a stray in PA.
LIBBY found her
forever home right where she's being fostered in PA! Her new guardian had
been looking for a friend for her Border Collie, Pepper and shortly after
Libby arrived, the two of them were fast friends, playing and running and
enjoying life together. So, Libby is all set with love, fun and a great
LIBBY: A 8 month old Border Collie,
Libby is an energetic, fun little girl who really loves to play, play,
play. She loves people and will engage in any game with toys though is
still learning how to bring toys back for another throw, common with
puppies. She is a sweet, gentle dog who is eager to explore everything
around her. Libby is also quite the herder, circling anything that moves,
classic for the breed. She has a great personality and is a very well
adjusted pup. She is wonderful in the house and happy to be with her
person, a cuddly active classic Border Collie. She is good with
cats. Libby was abandoned at a PA shelter for too much energy.
She is being fostered near Pittsburgh.
A 6 year old Border Collie who loves the ball, anytime, anywhere,
Blue wants to play and chase and retrieve. While he's great with
other dogs and cats, he'd much rather be playing ball with his person.
His high energy level requires an active home that will enjoy his
brilliance and need for stimulation. He is sweet and friendly to everyone,
easily adapting to new situations. Blue also adores older kids who
will throw the ball for him! He is about 45 pounds. Blue
is from PA, being given up because the family’s situation has changed
and he is being left alone for too long every day.
BLUE & COLBEE
& KYLIE found a new life together!! Three dogs to one home in
one day - a first at GHF! Their new guardians knew the minute they saw
Blue in action, that he was the one going home for sure. As they met dog
after dog, they were drawn to sweet Colbee and she to them so, number two
had found them! In the midst of meeting various candidates, their hearts
melted with the gentle sweetheart, Kylie. So, as the visit went on, the
idea of three seemed perfect. A great trio found each other at the Farm
and then found a wonderful life with lots of acres to explore and run and
make up games as well as being the constant companions to their new
family. They live in PA.
KYLIE: A 1 year old Border Collie,
Kylie is a love bug who wants to climb in your lap for attention. She
loves to run and chase and play with other dogs but really wants to be
with her person. She is eager to interact with everyone. Kylie can be
timid at first but easily adjusts to positive attention. She'll do best
with another more gentle dog as a companion who can be her friend and also
give her more confidence. She is about 35 pounds and good with cats. She came from the New England area.
An 8 year old Border Collie, Colbee is a friendly, good natured, happy
girl. Everyone who meets her falls in love, she is so sweet and
gentle. She also LOVES to play with other dogs, chasing, racing and
playing with toys. Colbee is a a very young eight, nothing like what
most people imagine. She likes to meet everyone and enjoys lots of
attention, quite the wiggle-butt. She is easy going and adapts well to new
situations. She is not as intense as many Border Collies, a much more
balanced even tempered girl. She is very obedient and eager to
please. Colbee would love having another canine friend for sure. She is
38lbs and fine with cats. Colbee was adopted from the Farm a year ago but
returned now due to a divorce.
TRIXIE: A 6 year old Border Collie with
ABCA papers, Trixie is a doll. She is fun, focused and so eager to be with
her person chasing balls. For anyone who has enjoyed a Border Collie, this
girl is classic fun. So smart, so interested in everything and so ready to
go, she is a sweetheart. Trixie is a delightful companion, too, very
people oriented and friendly. She is good with other dogs and fine with
cats. Trixie is about 40 pounds. Trixie was surrendered to the Farm
from her PA guardians who had moved to a smaller property, leaving Trixie
with less space to run which they felt wasn't best for her.
HUCK & TRIXIE
found their forever together when one of our former adopters came back
with Spike to find him some friends and enjoy enlarging his pack to a
trio! He fell in love with Trixie instantly and she had her new home!
Then, when Huck arrived in the fields to play ball, he knew he was number
three! With lots of tossed balls and racing and running, this trio came
together as a perfect group for life together. Their new guardian was
thrilled and off they headed to PA and a life of Border Collie games.
HUCK a 5 yr old border
collie with ABCA papers. Huck is a sweet guy that loves the ball, and the
frisbee, but will also settle for a well deserved belly rub. If the
tennis ball isn't close enough to your foot, he'll happily give it a nudge
closer with his nose.
Huck can be a little hesitant in new situations, but has tried many new
things in his foster home, and quickly becomes confident. He gets
along with other dogs and is good with cats. He is approx 50 lbs .Huck
came from a family in NJ that had a hard time managing his energy.
KIRBEY found his
forever home with guardians who actually had met him when they were
here before and when they were ready to come back to adopt, he was here
since he'd been returned to the Farm...we consider this to be a classic
example of how these dogs find their people even if the route to their new
home looks a bit different..some may call it fate but we know that these
dogs are masters of their own choices...Kirbey found his people! His
new guardians were thrilled to have him join their lives and he and his
new Border Collie friend, Lady, enjoyed lots of time playing frisbee and
ball. Of course, Kirbey showed off all his new skills as the confident
happy boy he had become since they first met him. He was now ready to join
them in a loving life in MA.
A 10 month old Border Collie, Kirbey is learning that life is good and
beginning to trust that people are fun and loving. He is an adorable,
friendly boy who needs a patient person and other dogs to keep him
blossoming. Kirbey's innocent, puppy-like nature is so endearing and
he will surely be a wonderful companion as he matures. He already knows
that the other dogs are so much fun, cause he runs and wrestles and plays
in his room all day and outside, too. Kirbey is a very gentle, sweet, soft
Border Collie who deserves a ton of love and a patient guardian who will
help him continue to gain his confidence. He will be placed with another
Border Collie or other dogs to help build his confidence. He loves to
play. He is about 30 pounds and good with cats. We rescued
Kirbey from a filthy horse stall where he had been neglected, all alone,
living on a farm. His good nature is intact. All he needs is
time and guidance.
BUDDIE found his new
guardian quickly soon as she saw him on the site, she wanted to visit.
He and his new Border Collie friend did just fine together but even
more importantly, his new furMom was in love and so was he! Buddie will be
her constant companion, enjoying his new life, adored in NY with lots of
room to run and play.
BUDDIE: A 4 1/2 year old Border Collie,
Buddie is Mr. Friendly, "hello" to everyone and happy to see
anyone willing to say hi to him! He is easy going and happy go-lucky
though like any Border Collie, loves his toys! Buddie will play happily or
hang with his person, cuddled next to them. He is very, very people
oriented and good with kids, too. He is not as intense as other Border
Collies but does love playing with other dogs so could be really happy
with a canine friend. Buddie is good with cats and about 45 pounds. He
came to the Farm from a PA guardian who could no longer meet his
CARA found her forever
home when she found her people...they fell in love with her from the
website and after many conversations over the month, learning about her
sweet but skittish nature, they knew they had to travel to meet her. They
drove from Maine with their two dogs and discovered that everything they
had felt in seeing her picture and hearing about her was true in
person.... she was THEIR dog so off she went to a new life with tons of
love and plenty of patience to help her blossom. We are so thrilled for
Cara, who quickly curled up on the couch with her new FurMom, giving a
vote of YES for her new life.
CARA: A 1 year old
Border Collie, Cara is a beautiful girl, stunning in person. She is,
however, super shy and afraid of people at this time. She came from a
hoarding situation where she had not lived in a home, close to someone so
will need some time at the Farm to gain confidence and also some
experience feeling safe with people around. Cara is very typical of Border
Collies left in barns, basements or outdoor kennels. Once she gains some
new life experiences, she will blossom but will always require a patient
guardian who understands her worries. She is so sweet and wants so much to
be with a person but it will take time. Like with any of the other
skittish dogs in rescue, we will place Cara in a multiple dog home since
she is most comfortable with other dogs. She is about 40 pounds and not
yet tested on cats. She came to the Farm from a NY shelter. Cara
is being fostered in NH and can be seen at the Farm
SAMSON & DELILAH
found their forever home with loving guardians who have plenty of time to
devote to them. Delilah showed her immediate vote of yes, hopping into her
new FurDad's lap for constant cuddles as Samson stretched out for belly
rubs, curling up around his new FurMom's legs. This great pair of Border
Collies clearly chose their people! They also showed their fun antics of
jolly ball play, joining in their duo game of pushing the ball all over
the field, happily entertaining themselves as their new guardians
chuckled, delighted to see such a joyful pair of dogs. Samson &
Delilah headed out to their new lives in upstate NY where they are
certainly going to be adored.
SAMSON and DELILAH:
and sister duo, Samson & Delilah are petite 3 years old and the
happiest pair of dogs we've seen! Some brother/sister combos argue
but not these two, they are truly wonderful together. They make up games,
pushing the jolly ball all over the fields and they race and chase and
follow each other everywhere, just happy to be together exploring. Both
are so good natured, friendly and easy going though they are high energy,
too. They have an endless desire to run and play. Both are
very very people oriented and friendly with whoever they met, a really
delightful duo. They are also very very cuddly and affectionate,
happy to be in your lap or near you. Samson is very devoted to
Delilah as well as equally devoted to playing with his basketball. They
are good with cats and good with other dogs though happiest together.
Samson & Delilah
were surrendered to the Farm from NY guardians who had to move.
Mr. BIGGS found his
forever home with a family that is so excited to have him join their
lives. His new FurMom came to meet him two months ago and waited anxiously
for today to arrive so he could be theirs. She organized his arrival,
taking an entire week off so he could be her full focus, getting to know
him. So, off he went to his new life in Maryland where he'll enjoy plenty
of outdoor life and have all the life he deserves. We're thrilled for
Biggs and his new family.
5 yr old border collie with ABCA papers, Biggs is an amazing Border
Collie, a classic herder with tons of focus yet a quiet, calm boy once
with his people. He is very very friendly and gentle, loving attention.
Biggs bonds quickly. He loves squeaky toys and frisbee and will happily
play with his person as well as relax, calmly at your side. He is
also very focused and can easily herd geese which he did in his previous
home. He is a very smart, alert, intelligent dog and very well
balanced. Biggs also likes to swim and is up for any adventure exploring.
He is fun and smart and all the personality of a classic wonderful
brilliant BC. Biggs is 50 pounds and trained on the invisible fence. He is
not good with cats. Biggs was relinquished from NJ due to the
family moving. He is camera shy so it's hard to see just how gorgeous he
really is, very stunning.
RUSTY charmed his new
guardians instantly with his playful antics and clever toy play, squeaking
one in his mouth while pushing a jolly ball around - smart is smart! Of
course, he then climbed into their laps for cuddles and they were clear as
a bell that this Border Collie belonged in their lives. Rusty won their
hearts and now has his forever home where he'll be happily loved and
played with constantly, as the companion to his new FurDad whose office
has him at home. Rusty now lives in upstate NY.
a 2 yr old purebred border collie with papers, is a high energy "lovebug".
He knows how to play soccer, and will play as long as his person will
throw the ball. He is a great frisbee player too, able to catch
pretty much any disc tossed his way! Rusty loves interaction with people, either playing
or will settle nicely for a long cuddle. He is a very focused, sweet guy.
Rusty is a soccer nut and will actually move the ball all over the yard
and could easily play with a human partner. He's a huge toy lover and came
to the Farm with a ton of toys, clearly a beloved canine friend and a play
dog for sure. He is good with cats and weighs about 35 pounds. Rusty will
need a hard fence situation since he will run through an invisible
lived in one home since a puppy, but a recent move to NJ, meant no yard
and being left alone 10 hours a day which was making him unhappy.
SASHA found her
forever home with guardians who love the breed and fell in love with her
on the site and instantly in person. Her sweetness and Border Collie
nature won their hearts. A little camera shy, sweet Sasha hoped to find a
place to hide while the picture was being taken but she was certainly
happy to head out for her new life. She will have 100 acres for daytime
play, going to work with her FurDad and then she'll have plenty of cuddle
time at home. Sasha now lives in MA and in the future, she'll have another
Border Collie joining her life, too, which she will love.
SASHA: A 2 year
old Border Collie, Sasha is spunk and sweetness combined....she can herd
any dog that moves and enjoy cuddling with any person nearby... a
wonderful combination. She is great with other Border Collies,
really enjoying the fun at the Farm, mixing it up playing and herding.
She is very smart and focused and bonds quickly, though she can be a
little shy in first meetings so will only be placed in a Border Collie
savvy home with people who understand what she needs. Sasha is about 35
pounds, good with cats and came to us from a PA guardian who could
not meet her needs.
BLITZ & BEA (a new
arrival) found their forever home together when their new guardians
arrived to adopt two dogs, one older & one younger. They met a few
wonderful pairs. They knew Blitz was the perfect choice for their family
and he loved them, wiggling for attention and happy to retrieve toys
endlessly. The dilemma was that the boys really also wanted a puppy so
when they heard a new puppy had arrived a few days ago, not even listed on
the site, that was who they wanted to meet. Little 10 pound Bea walked in
like she was claiming her new people, licked them to say hi and played
like a long lost friend. Soon as she and Blitz met, it was
heaven...play, play, play. So, this great pair found a great life together
with tons to do with their new family and plenty of love to go around.
They both now live in western NY.
Bea came to the Farm from a PA shelter
where she had been abandoned. Funny thing about Bea's rescue experience
was that she landed at two temporary homes with horses and she was
enamored with them, watching every move, even sitting upright mesmerized
by them. We all chuckled that we needed to find this little girl a home
with horses and that is exactly what happened. Bea, now called Flash, will
accompany her FurMom on trail rides (once older of course) so she did
quite a good job of calling in exactly the life she wanted!
BLITZ: A 2 1/2 year old
Border Collie, Blitz is a fun loving, good natured, happy guy. He loves
everyone and is happy to meet any dog and ready to play. He loves to
run, run, run and is starting to learn all about toys. Blitz is
energetic but also loves attention from anyone around. He
really enjoys dog play so would be happiest with another canine friend.
He is good with cats. He is about 35 pounds. He
was surrendered to a NY shelter from guardians unable to meet his needs.
Marvelous MAGEY found
the perfect life for her - living in Maine, hiking, skiing, living and
working outdoors with her new guardian who is a trail worker, creating
trails in huge preserves. He once lived on 1500 acres, in a
cabin...another time in a tent while doing his work. Magey will love this
unusual life where she can accompany him all day long and join in the
adventure. And, in winter, she'll join him cross country skiing and in the
ski shop where he works part-time. Magey happily headed out in his car,
with her toys and jolly ball, all set for the life she had patiently been
waiting for...a real Border Collie paradise. We are so happy for her and
for her new FurDad who was smitten from the minute he met her.
A special thanks to Debbie Lind who
fostered Magey for a year to let her unwind and enjoy the great outdoors,
hiking and playing each day. Magey decided that life fit her just fine so
she created the perfect forever home!
A 7 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Magey is all about the
ball, focused, fast and ready to go. She also loves the frisbee and lots
of other toys, too. Magey would be more than happy to be the constant
companion to a person. Magey is very intelligent and easily finds 8
or 9 of her toys by name (they came with her in her own bag) plus a dozen
or so other words she understands completely, including of course,
"shake". She is very active and loves to play but can also relax
easily. She is trained on the invisible fence. Magey will
chase cats so would probably be best without them in the home. Magey
is also good at herding and could work to move sheep if more fully
trained. She is showing great promise. Magey has great recall
for off leash hiking, too. Magey was relinquished to the Farm
because her guardians are now retired and traveling and feel their
lifestyle change means Magey is in a kennel too much. She came from NJ.
you donated with such kindness for her care
AND she found a new life!

KAMERON found the
perfect home where she will have tons to do, herding other Border Collies
and receive so much love and attention, she will surely blossom. It's
obvious she loves being a lap dog, cuddling for belly rubs. Her new
guardians adore the breed and have a great pack of young dogs who race
around on lots of acres as well as join them as constant companions. We
are so pleased that Kameron has found people who will move mountains to
make sure gets the care she needs and will cherish her for her sweet,
loving nature. She now lives in upstate NY joining her favorite thing: a
pack of Border Collies, three adopted from the Farm not long ago.
a 1 year old Border Collie, Kameron is a lively, active girl with the
sweetest charm of any Border Collie we've had in rescue. A real
lovebug. She is also quite the herder with a strong eye. She
loves herding games with other Border Collies and would be happiest with a
canine friend or a very involved human relationship since she also adores
people. Kameron is good with cats and about 30 pounds. Kameron
is epileptic so will need medication for the near future to stabilize her
properly. The hope is that she can come off the meds at some point. The
vet tests done at Cornell showed a very healthy Border Collie
with only one challenge..the epilepsy. She is still being treated by
neurologists there as we determine her needs fully. The Cornell
staff has fallen in love of course and thinks she's such a doll.
came to the Farm in late August, from an awful situation, living in a
4x4 pen, inappropriately cared for. The farmer had the mother and
three sisters, breeding the mom for many many years, all treated
poorly. Kameron and her sisters arrived and revealed THE sweetest
nature of any Border Collies we've seen: gentle, curious, soft, good
natured and a bit skittish too.
GILI found her
forever home with her foster family who fell in love with her brilliance
and sweetness, an irresistible combination. When Gili came back to the
Farm to meet a potential adopter, her foster family quickly realized they
missed her so much, they were glad the adoption visit was cancelled so
they could quickly drive up to bring her home! We are so happy for Gili
who now has her forever home where she will be completely understood and
enjoy plenty of stimulating BC activities and sports. She now lives
in CT and we'll even see her at Camp this summer!
A 2 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Gili is a remarkably smart
girl with lots of interest in the world. She came from well known breeder,
Kent Kuykendall. Gili is very friendly to everyone she meets, a
wiggly, happy girl who loves to say hello and loves attention, too. She
would thrive in a home with a person devoted to her who is active and
athletic. She also loves kids and would do really well in a home
with energetic, loving kids. Gili also loves the water Gili is ok with
other dogs and will play but is a strong female so needs just the right
match if she is living with another Border Collie, a more submissive but
equal personality. Gili will focus on herding cats so needs to be with dog
savvy cats or an easy going cat. She is about 35 pounds. Her
previous guardian felt she could not meet her needs so relinquished her to
the Farm. She came to us from NY Gili is being
fostered in CT. She can be seen at the Farm.
