Marly is 35 pounds and good with cats.  Marly will be placed in a hard fence situation only, not underground electronic fence systems.   Marly was from PA where she had been left to die, without food or care




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.

RUSTY, 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 fence.   He's 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!

MAGEY: 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. 


MIRACLES FOR KAMERON!!
All of 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.

KAMERON, 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.   Kameron 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. 



BLAZE officially went to his new home, traveling in a blizzard with his FurMom who determined to have him home for the holidays! She was volunteering the day he arrived at the Farm and fell in love with him. He was the frisbee dog she was looking for and he loved it! So, Blaze now lives with four other Border Collies from the Farm and will enjoy a very very active life in Vermont. We'll get to see him all the time since his FurMom is one of our intake volunteers.

BLAZE: An 11 month old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Blaze is focused, fast and fun. He is intensely interested in any game and ready to go in a flash. He is smart and eager to learn and responds quickly to whatever is asked. Blaze is great with other dogs and good with cats. He will only go to a Border Collie savvy home. He was given up due to his energy level and no fenced yard. 



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!

GILI: 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.
