Sweet, tiny SIENNA found exactly the person she was waiting for with a little bit of fate at work! Her new guardian came to the Farm along with her Mom eleven years ago to adopt a petite BC mix named Dart and now, eleven years later, she's back for her very own little BC mix! In all these years, we've only had two little BC mixes and they both landed in the same family! Sienna spent a weekend with her new FurMom and they were clearly made for each other so off she went to NJ for a great life with tons of love. She'll have lots of canine friends to play with, too but most importantly a loving person totally devoted to her.

SIENNA: A very petite 10 mo old Border Collie mix, Sienna is a lap dog. She jumps right there and stays put for attention. But, soon as the action starts, she runs like the wind, angling and turning as fast as any BC around. She is a sweet sweet girl with people and comfortable with dogs, enjoying the fun. Sienna and her pal, Tye, were strays picked in PA, clearly knowing each other so love to make up chase games together. She is 15 pounds and good with cats. It's easy to see how tiny she is running past average 45 pound BC's. 




Miss MIAH arrived recently and soon as she came to GHF, it was clear she was the perfect dog for two people who had been patiently waiting for a female Border Collie. They needed a happy, go-lucky, good natured, outgoing girl to join them and she was the one! She'll join her new BC Buddy for their performances as the reknowned, "Blue Ribbon Cloggers" who perform at the county fairs and nursing homes. Their current beloved BC is a hit with everyone and Miah will clearly be so, too. It was love at first sight so Miah headed out to her new life as a shining star with 140 acres to call her own where she can play in their backyard agility course as much as she wants! And, join them for hikes on the property, too as their constant companion.

MIAH: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Miah is all about action - she loves to play and she loves to run! She is smart, fast, focused and super responsive to whatever you ask of her. A sweet girl, too, she loves a cuddle but then loves another toss of the ball. Miah is very friendly with everyone and easily fits in wherever she is, adjusting quickly to her surroundings and new people. She is good with other BC's and other breeds though just as happy to be with her person as with another dog. Miah is a talker, where she'll give a bark to tell you what she wants which is of course, another ball toss! She is about 35 pounds and good with cats. She was surrendered to the Farm because her NY guardians could not meet her needs and she was being left 12 hours a day and not doing well. 



ZOIE charmed her new guardians instantly with her sweet nature and good looks - this beautiful girl stole the show! She hopped up on the couch for cuddles and then right into their car to start her new life. She'll be the constant companion to her new FurMom and enjoy summer trips to their camp for vacations, too! She now lives in NY where she'll be an adored family member.

ZOIE: A 2 year old Border Collie, possibly mix, Zoie is a doll. She loves people and loves to be near her person. She also loves to run, and race with other dogs though could be happy in an active home without another dog. She is very smart, thoughtful and eager to please. Zoie is easy going and not overly intense, content to play and also settle easily once inside. She's a very affectionate girl who loves to cuddle, too. She's not a big toy girl, but would rather hang in your lap for attention. Watching her race and chase with her new friends at the Farm, she fits in easily with other dogs and is happy to join in the action. Zoie is about 35 pounds and not yet tested on cats. She came to the Farm from her former home where the older jack russell terrier was picking on her. Her PA guardians were heartbroken to have to rehome her. 



LANCE landed beautifully with another GHF alum in a family that loves the seniors! They've always watched as these wonderful dogs join their family as if they've lived with them forever. Lance, now named Cubby, is no exception - he LOVES their kids and his new yard where the ball is a full-time 'job'! We are really happy for this sweet boy to have found a loving home like this. He now lives in Vermont.

LANCE: An 11 year old Border Collie Mix, Lance is a gentle sweet guy who loves everyone he meets. He also loves his ball and will ask for a toss as much as you'll toss it! He is really, really adorable, a little guy who likes dogs and enjoys being with his people. Lance was a stray in PA, passed to GHF from another rescuer. His bloodwork, thyroid and urinalysis were all good so Lance is ready for his next step to a great life. His beautiful long hair was so badly matted, he was shaved so looks a little odd at the moment. Lance also has one eye that is likely a congenital birth defect since he can't see in that eye at all. He's a bit deaf, too but clearly able to track his ball and his person, happy to join in the game! Lance is about 40 pounds and good with cats. 



ALLY found a wonderful life on six acres surrounded by trails for hiking and lots of space for frisbee and ball games, which she loves. Even more importantly, she'll be the constant companion to her FurDad, going to work with him and enjoying lots of play time there, too. Her new guardians fell in love with her focused nature and sweet ways and knew instantly that this petite girl would bring so much joy to their lives, that they had to bring her home! Ally now lives in Ct where we are very sure she will love every minute of attention and give plenty back to her new guardians, too.

ALLY: A petite 10 month old Border Collie, Ally is all action! She is super fast and loves to play with toys.  She is so agile and fast, eager to race after whatever is thrown her way.  She can fly across the field as fast as any BC ever in rescue. She is focused though young so looking for guidance and loves to learn. She is also the sweetest girl, cuddling up to anyone and everyone, super friendly. Ally is good with other BC's and could have a friend for her energy level or an active guardian who loves engaging with her in lots of activities. Ally is OK with dog savvy with cats. She also loves the water and is great off leash hiking.  Ally is about 35 pounds, a petite girl for sure.



OLLY found a great life with 15 acres to call his own and a family that loves the breed! He's got his own BC buddy, Willow, to show him the ropes and share all the ball tosses that get thrown at his new home. He'll have plenty of fun swimming, too and going everywhere with his new family. Olly has already climbed in bed with one of the kids in the family, the one who clearly loves dogs and they are both happy as can be! He now lives in PA in a life that suits him perfectly.

OLLY: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Olly is a sweet, gentle boy who loves to play! He plays with other dogs and toys, happy to enjoy the fun of any activity. Olly is very responsive to people and bonds quickly, happy to be with his person. He is smart and energetic though not overly intense as many young BC's. He is a really happy dog, a delight to be with and an affectionate boy, too. He is about 40 pounds and good with cats. Olly was surrendered to the farm due to financial issues forcing a move. He lived in one home since a pup, from NY.




BRODY found two guardians who loved the intensity of his ball play, the crouching and stalking and ready to go nature that says Border Collie! Soon as they met him, they were reminded of their first BC and drawn to him. He immediately befriended their current BC for lots of fun games at the Farm and surely, plenty of play, once home. Brody happily hopped into the car to head out to his new life in CT where he'll be busy on trail walks, hanging with his FurDad and tons of ball play!!

BRODY: A petite 2 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Brody is a ball nut! He is super fast, eager to retrieve and loves to do that endlessly, a very serious ball dog indeed! When the ball is away, Brody is a love-bug, quite the cuddler and a very friendly BC. He loves to say hello to anyone and everyone that comes his way. He's good with other BC's but could be just as happy as a solo dog if the person is active enough. He is very intelligent, observant and eager to please. Brody is about 35 pounds and good with cats. He was surrendered to the Farm due to a divorce and move to life that would not suit him well. He is from NY. 



DELANEY found a fabulous home where she'll have everything she needs - a BC buddy who likes to play, chase and wrestle like she does and a FurMom who loves agility! This speedy focused little girl should love the sport and do really well!! But, even more importantly, she'll be a beloved family member with her new guardian who loves the breed and their special nature. Delaney now lives in Canada.

DELANEY: A petite 1 year old Border Collie, Delaney is enjoying the farm and showing her true playful nature. She is a big ball nut, loving to retrieve but she also loves to make up chase games with other BC's. She is fast and can turn on a dime, a real athlete. Delaney can be a little shy at first but quickly warms up once she feels comfortable. She is very loving and wants to be with her person. She is smart, observant and easy going though needs an outlet for her BC energy. She was picked up as a stray and landed in a NY shelter though lived in one home since a pup. The guardian could not keep her and she was left to roam. Delaney is about 30 pounds and good with cats.



HARTLEY found guardians who really love all his intensity with the ball and know he'll be the star of their flyball team! Hartley couldn't be happier!! Hartley loved the mental toy games his new FurDad tried with him to learn how he thinks. This highly intelligent boy charmed them with his problem solving abilities. Then, of course, with the ball away, his sweet nature of cuddling and kisses meant he just had to head home with them! Hartley will have a BC buddy who loves the ball as much as him and enjoy plenty of BC fun forever! He now lives in NJ.

HARTLEY: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Hartley is a maniac for the ball - he loves a throw anytime and anywhere! He is as sweet as any BC we've met and friendly to every person and a player with other dogs but that ball is his game! Hartley is very smart, focused and very responsive to whatever is asked of him. His intelligence and drive requires he has an active life with a real job in sports or with an active guardian. He is an incredibly great dog with lots of energy. Having another BC friend for herding games would be great for him, too. Hartley is trained on the invisible fence, weighs about 40 pounds and is good with cats. He was surrendered to the Farm from a NJ guardian who no longer could meet his needs. 



LILY found a wonderful life with plenty of acres, a BC buddy and a young man who was excited to have a BC to call his own! She charmed her new guardians with her sweet nature and that cute bat of the front paw to saw hello but it was that little tip of her tongue sitting out that sealed the deal! Charming Lily loved all the attention and happily headed out to Massachusetts where she'll have her own 8 acres to explore and enjoy and all the love she can imagine!

LILY is right in the middle enjoying all the fun, a little shy but sweet as can be. She is good with cats.



It's official - ANNEY is home! She's been reunited with her buddy, Jake, and the two are happily enjoying their new FurDad and all the fun of living with him AND together!! Anney has her red jolly ball of course and is having a blast. She and Jake are even learning to play tug of war together. We're really thrilled that these two sweet Border Collies have a great life where they are totally adored! Anney now lives in New Hampshire.

ANNEY: A petite 9 year old Border Collie, Anney is a loving, gentle girl who takes a little while to show her playful side. But, once she does, she's adorable. And, she loves herding other BC's and that's when you see the happy, go lucky, focused and fun Anney. She will need a patient home that allows her some time to show this lively side. Anney has a super sweet nature and is very smart and attentive to her person. She has hearing loss though you'd barely know it cause she stays so close by your side, unless she's herding! Anney is doing great at the Farm and really wonderful. She just takes time and cannot be rushed in new situations or she gets overwhelmed. She is about 40 pounds and good with cats. She and Jake were a pair of BC's bought for breeding years ago and then replaced by younger dogs. The NY breeder gave both of them to GHF. We feel a hard fence would be better than an invisible fence since Anney is a soft dog who could become worried by the system.

We know Anney loved her jolly ball but now she's got her sight set on new inventory - her FurDad's collection of bowling balls!




Ironically, I sent a new picture  that showed how Clark had become so radiant.  The outside didn't tell the whole story of the broken body that was unraveling at the end.  On Friday, Oct 28th, he went into shock and died within 20 minutes or so.  We do not yet know the cause but today's visit at Cornell left us hoping he had more time however his blood pressure was extremely high.  The adrenal tumor was the likely cause. The report came in tonight from the vet, not knowing he had died, that his cholesterol was high and the protein in his urine had jumped dramatically.  His body problems with kidney disease; an adrenal tumor; hypertension; past lyme disease and heart disease, all added up to the end.

We all loved this joyous boy who said hello every day with the greatest enthusiasm, asking only for one more ball toss or a bite to eat. Clark loved food and balls equally! We will really miss his presence as the office dog who said hello to anyone and everyone. Clark never knew a stranger. We are blessed to have met him, even if only for 3 1/2 short months.  We already miss you Clark...your sweet fun nature will never be forgotten. 

CLARK found his way to GHF just in time for some special TLC, well needed at his age and now, critical. He is an amazing boy with tons of charm and so vibrant, it's hard to believe he is very sick, but he is. We are working rapidly with Cornell internal medicine to see how much time we can gain for Clark so he can enjoy all the love we want to give him! When a special Border Collie like Clark arrives, it's always a bittersweet experience to realize we won't get to know him for long but we are always grateful to be graced with someone so special. 

Clark has an adrenal mass, high blood pressure, kidney disease/ infection and a heart valve problem and has a prognosis of weeks to months to live.





Special thanks to Debby Mitchell who kindly transported Gypie from upstate NY all the way to the Farm.
Gypie's Angel
THE SPIRIT OF DEEDEE, THE BRIARD PRINCESS

GYPIE: A petite 6 year old Border Collie, Gypie is a sweet girl who is very gentle with people, sometimes even timid but once she knows you, she loves you. She's so happy to say hello in the morning and enjoys exploring the Farm with other BC's out in the field, content to check things out and come back to her person. Gypie is very smart and attentive and clearly used to being the companion to her person, happiest by your side. She likes toys but most of all, likes being with her person. She is a classic, smart, focused BC. She was originally from Texas and has spent her life with a NY guardian who was hospitalized which meant she landed in a shelter along with other dogs from the home. She is about 40 pounds and not yet tested on cats. She is fine with other dogs but seems content as a solo dog, too. Gypie would be happiest in an adult home with someone focused on her needs


KAEL found his new life not far from his foster home and it's a perfect home for him! He'll have 27 acres to explore and be the constant companion to his new guardians who have a wonderful gallery at home where they work. They'll be taking him on lots of hikes and swims and showing him how great life can really be! They fell in love once they spent time with him and were thrilled to see his frisbee game was so good!! Kael now lives in NY.

KAEL: A 1 year old Border Collie, Kael is a doll. He's a petite guy with lots of energy that he wants to direct somewhere though he's not quite sure where that should be. He loves to play non-stop with dogs and is happy to say hello with some reassurance. He loves food so could easily be trained to learn all kinds of things, including sports. Kael is super sweet and in the right home, would blossom so quickly into a great BC. He has a great temperament and the curiosity to see the world. Kael is about 30 pounds and good with cats. Kael came from the Texas confiscation.



BUD headed home with his new guardians like he had lived with them all his life! Soon as he saw them, he sat nicely to say hello and then promptly rolled over for belly rubs - one happy boy! They were crazy about him instantly and loved playing ball with him out in the fields. Bud will have their undivided attention and be their constant companion everywhere they go on his very own 85 acres! Bud now lives in NY.

BUD: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Bud is a sweet guy, loves to say hello and lean against your leg for some attention or give you a kiss - a loving boy. He is smart and focused but not overly intense, a good natured companion. He can easily enjoy lots of ball play including soccer or is also happy to be by your side. Bud can be a little timid in new situations so needs some reassurance at first with someone he knows. He quickly brightens right up when he's comfortable. He is a tall Border Collie, about 40 pounds and not yet tested on cats. His previous PA guardian was an older person who was not well and her hospital stay led her to surrender him to the Farm.



Little LIV found the right home to call her own with guardians who absolutely loved her sweet nature! Liv made friends with their cat named Gus who travels wherever they go! And, NOW, Liv will join them on the road for all their travels too!! Liv hopped right into their van and looked right at home, joining guardians who will cherish her. She'll be traveling all over the U.S. as they enjoy adventures together with their beloved animal friends. During the winter, Liv will be home in upstate NY but otherwise, she's a traveling Border Collie seeing all the fun life has to offer. We got a chance to meet Gus, the first ever cat to come for an adoption and boy was he picking his favorite dog, too!!

LIV loves to herd Loni and keep track of the action - and is good with cats



CHARLIE found a wonderful boy to call his own and quickly befriended him as if they were long lost friends. His new buddy, Caleb, felt the same way and the two of them clicked immediately. Charlie happily hopped up on the couch for cuddling and then outside for ball play. His new guardians love the breed and will give him a wonderful life of fun and plenty of hikes at their summer camp. Charlie is great off leash so will love all those adventures! He now lives in upstate NY.

CHARLIE: A 4 year old Border Collie, Charlie is super friendly, good natured and ready to join anyone he meets, with a big hello and belly rub. He is a great guy who adjusts well to new situations and wants to join in whatever is going on. He is smart and playful but not overly intense and happy to be a companion to his person. Charlie is good with other dogs, easily fitting in with new dogs, curious to know more about them. He is a sweet guy with a great disposition. He is about 40 pounds and is good with cats. He was surrendered to the Farm from his PA guardian who no longer had time for him. 




NATE came to the Farm with all his charm and smarts and quickly found guardians who knew he was the one for them! His sweet eyes and great nature led them to visit right away and off Nate went to a new life! He'll be the constant companion to his FurDad, 24/7, enjoying life hiking and exploring their property and all over the nearby trails. Nate just might get to hike the Appalachian Trail! He'll surely kayak and canoe and use his athletic, curious nature to explore the world and be completely adored while he does it! We are so happy for this little guy! As his new FurDad said, he wants him to 'be the happiest dog in the world' and we are so sure he will be! With a goal like that, surely life will be grand. Nate's new name is Angus, in honor of his heritage! He now lives in PA.

NATE: A 5 month old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Nate is a cute guy with lots of spunk, ready to play and run and race. He is very very sweet and curious about everything. Like any young BC pup, he has boundless energy and would do best with a canine buddy so that will be required. While Nate is very people oriented, too, we will only place him with another buddy because of his history. Nate was left alone 20 hours a day in a barn, yet  is completely housetrained. He is quickly blossoming having dog friends and plenty of people time so he is coming back into balance. He is smart and energetic but not overly intense in his focus so would likely be a good companion, more easy going. He has a gorgeous curly coat that completes his charm! He came to the Farm from a PA guardian who knew he had no time for him. He is about 30 pounds and good with cats. 



BRIG found a wonderful home where he will be the center of attention and absolutely adored for all his charming ways! He won their hearts instantly with his sweetness and focused intelligence at the same time all ready for play. Brig cuddled and got his belly rubs before hopping in the car to head to his new life. We are so happy for him and his new guardians will love him forever - he's their third dog from GHF!

BRIG: A petite 2 year old Border Collie mix, Brig is a very affectionate, friendly boy who likes people especially his own person and will cuddle endlessly. He bonds well and loves to be wherever you are in the house. He also loves toys, especially squeaky ones and will entertain himself or play happily with anyone tossing one his way. Brig also has a cute trick where he can balance standing up on his hind legs and bat at the air when excited! He learns very quickly and likes challenges- a very smart dog! Brig is good with easy going dogs but doesn't like a dog pressuring him so could either have one dog friend who will play with him or be a solo dog. He is about 30 pounds and is fine with dog savvy cats. He was adopted from the Farm a year ago and is being returned because it's too hard for him to mix with numerous dogs on hikes and at the adopter's boarding facility. Too many dogs at once overwhelm him but he enjoys having a dog friend at home. 



LONI found her forever home with a guardian who loves Border Collies and was so hoping to find a new friend to join her life! Once she met Loni and her sweet, cuddling ways, she knew this girl had her heart. Loni happily hopped up on the couch for kisses and nudged her for affection. After a nice walk around the field, she and Loni were set for life. They spent the night at the Farm to get to know each other better before heading home to Massachusetts. Loni will have a great property to explore and be her constant companion!

LONI: A 4 year old Border Collie, Loni is a doll. She is friendly, outgoing and good natured. She loves to say hello to everyone! A comical girl with tons of personality, she loves her toys, too. She'll enjoy chasing her ball and squeaky toy, racing around having a blast but will also cuddle when she comes in. Loni is quite the charmer, sitting by your side, asking for attention, sharing her love. She is smart and fun but not overly intense, more people oriented instead. She is about 35 pounds and needs dog savvy cats who can handle her staring at them, ready to herd. She came to the Farm with two other female BC's who were found as strays in upstate NY.



TIGGS found his forever home with GHF adopters who love to help the dogs with special needs because they know the truth that those are the dogs that touch them the most, with the greatest hearts of love and joy. Tiggs did just that as soon as he met his new FurMom - it was like a reunion, like he'd been waiting all his life for her. He was exuberant and focused just on her and she was in tears feeling the love of this remarkable red BC boy, just what she was looking for. Tiggs will be a cherished member of a wonderful family who have traveled to GHF two other times for special dogs and helped in fostering, too. We are so excited by this joining of hearts! Tiggs now lives in VT with plenty of land to call his own and lots of cuddling as the constant companion to his new family.

TIGGS: A 4 1/2 year old Border Collie, Tiggs is a super sweet guy who loves being with his person. He's very good natured and eager to bond, great with men and women. Tiggs also enjoys other dogs and happily becomes their friend, content to explore outside with a pal. We will place Tiggs with another dog since he has an eyesight impairment and the other canine companion can help him understand everything around him, more quickly. He can see well enough to track along side a buddy and also follow his person but he will need a patient person to give him time to get the lay of the land. Tiggs is good with cats and about 50 pounds. He was surrendered to the Farm due to a move from the west coast to a smaller home. 





Special thanks to Jane Locacio and Ann Gardner who helped get them to GHF.
SAMMI & CHLOE were the happiest we've seen them since they arrived - they were going home and they KNEW it! It was adorable to watch them show off all their ball antics and then come inside and charm their new guardians. Happy to share their kisses and cuddle right by their feet, this loving duo were  fantastic. Their new guardians were thrilled to have them join their lives.  They'll have a great property with plenty of room to explore and of course play ball!

SAMMI & CHLOE: A brother and sister pair, 8 years old, these two are fun and sweet! They love everyone and are so happy to be with people. Of course, they are both REALLY happy when the ball comes out for a good game! This good natured duo is very special and would easily join in a new life with people that love them. They are affectionate, very smart and eager to please, with classic BC intelligence. They prefer each other's company than that of other dogs and get along so well, we want them to be adopted together. Sammi & Chloe have lived together since 7 weeks old, in one home. Both were relinquished to GHF due to issues with newer dogs, Rotties, that were added a few years ago. The dogs did not all mix easily so the guardians felt it best to rehome the Border Collies. Both are a bit overweight due to inactivity but will knock that off easily at the Farm. They have been trained on the electric fence.



Marvelous LOKI found a life that couldn't be any better - a perfect fit for him! His new guardian lives and works at a 6000 acre YMCA summer camp with over 65 miles of hiking trails and open space which Loki will LOVE! He'll be sharing in the action of fun with the kids coming to camp and will also have the undivided attention of his new FurMom at home. She was smitten the moment she saw him. Loki was a fantastic canine friend to the kids at Camp Border Collie for Kids so we know he'll be remarkable in his new life, too. We will miss this very special boy who has so much to give to the people he meets and has already touched so many of us at GHF. He'll now go on as quite an ambassador! Of course, once his adoption picture was taken cuddling with his new excited FurMom, he was giving her kisses galore, casting his nod of approval! A perfect pair!

LOKI: A 4 year old Border Collie, Loki is all about being with his person - he wants to go wherever you go and has great recall so is a wonderful hiking partner, always nearby. He is also a big soccer nut, happy to endlessly retrieve even going up high for a ball. A big time athlete, he is full of energy but also settles beautifully inside, laying right near your feet. Loki is super smart and eager to please. He loves the water and going for car rides, too. He is also good with cats. He is about 40 pounds. Loki came to the Farm from NY guardians who lost their home and felt he needed space to run. 





MADDIE: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Maddie is full of life and loves to race around non-stop. Like any young BC, she is eager to play and loves herding other Border Collies. She will play with the right BC, wrestling and chasing so could really enjoy having a friend. She is smart and focused and very very sweet. Maddie loves people and is the first one to say hello, looking for attention and then, of course, something to DO! She is about 35 pounds and good with cats, though will stare and stalk a bit. She came to the Farm from a relinquisher in CT who could no longer keep her. She's a bit camera shy so hard to catch her gorgeous looks!  
HUNTER found his new home! and with another BC from the Farm - MADDIE! We just knew they would click and be best buds and that they were, as if they lived together all their lives. And, even more wonderful was the news that their new guardians fell in love instantly! They came to add two Border Collies to their family and soon as they met Hunter - he was certain to land in their car heading home. They were smitten with him. Then Maddie came out to say hello, turning on all her charm and that was it...two friends for life with loving people who really understand the breed and adored them both. We are especially excited for Hunter since he waited such a long time to find a home that would embrace him fully and appreciated his remarkable intelligence and sweet nature, too. Both will have a blast in plenty of acreage to call their own and tons of love!!! Hunter and Maddie now live in Massachusetts.

HUNTER: A 4 year old Border Collie, Hunter is one of the nicest and sweetest dogs in rescue.  He is fabulous with every person and eager to offer affection and loves attention. He is super smart and understands whatever you ask him to do, with great responsiveness.  He is really good natured and a delight to live with and be around.  Hunter loves the water, quite the swimmer! He is also great with other BC's and enjoys having a friend for play, especially great with female BC's who always love him.  He travels fine in the car himself, not herding traffic as it passes.Hunter came to the Farm from a PA shelter.  We are looking for just the right place where Hunter can share his incredible good nature.




DJ came to the Farm on a mission - to find his new life where he could be loved and be valued for what he knows! Well, he most certainly found where he belongs, staying with his foster Mom! She had just lost her beloved BC companion, Kelli, when DJ came into rescue so while her heart was healing, she agreed to open her home to a dog in need. Well, DJ had big plans to be HER dog and the two of them bonded as if it was destiny. When she gardened, he helped pick up whatever tools she needed. When she was doing laundry, he'd help out with moving the clothes. When she dropped her keys, he'd quickly pick them up to give her. And, he'd of course bring the ball for plenty of fun games too. Wherever she went, DJ went with her, both of them happy to be together. Her emails came regularly describing the wonderful friendly nature of this special boy, DJ. Being an appropriate foster Mom, she was helping him be ready for his new life, happy to report all that he could do. But, as the two of them shared every day together, their hearts joined. Everyone who watched this happen, knew DJ and his Foster Mom were much more than temporary friends. This seemingly coincidental twist of fate is what we consider, a gift from the universe - a joining of two hearts, both in need, exactly when they needed to be together. We are incredibly thrilled to have a seat on the sidelines to watch this wonderful match unfold. DJ now lives in PA, forever!

DJ: A 9 year old Border Collie, DJ is one amazing boy. He is super smart, eager to please and loves to learn and carry out what is asked of him! He was trained as a service dog to a woman with severe arthritis so DJ knows how to really be helpful around the house! If something drops on the floor, like keys or the newspaper or an envelope, he picks whatever it is, up to give it to you. He is totally trained with commands and knows exactly what to do. As you would guess, he is incredibly friendly to everyone he meets and a very happy go-lucky boy and very proud of all he can do. DJ brings his own bowl to you to be fed as well as taking it back to be washed. DJ also loves to play with his toys and of course, those are brought right over too, hoping for a great game of toss or frisbee. DJ had a few years of competitive agility where he was quite the star and loved to learn. Clearly, this is one very special Border Collie and we are looking for a home that makes use of all his talents! He has great recall off leash, loves to ride in the car and is good with cats. DJ is about 50 pounds. He was surrendered to the Farm after the death of his guardian, from the husband. He lived in one home since he was sent to be a service dog at 6 months old.

His new guardians saw him online and his FurDad and his granddaughter said that Magee is the one we want to meet, no one else.

He'll have fun runs on the beach as well as walks in the nearby state parks each day.

CRICKET has landed in her new home right at the Farm! She came to rescue a very very sick pup so her adoption prospects were delayed. Once she arrived at the Farm from her temporary foster home, she was still sick with pneumonia and bronchitis so had to remain as unadoptable. As she began to feel better and play, she became buddies with Nell and the more we watched and felt, the clearer it became that this little bundle of joy was staying. We just adore everything about her. 

CRICKET: A very petite 3-4 month old Border Collie mix, Cricket is wonderful! She is smart, curious, bold and easy going all in one. She is a fast little thing who keeps up with the gang of adult BC's very well, showing off her BC nature, cutting, angling and turning quickly to race and chase. Being a little girl, she likes to jump on the couch to keep track of everything, using the strategy of being up high. But, she also likes leaping onto anything as she races around, fast as she can, cause it's a quicker route! Cricket is really smart and fun and she loves people, a complete cuddler.

GRAHAM found a wonderful home with guardians who really understand herding breeds and thought he'd fit their pack perfectly. They used lots of cheese and hot dogs to help him with his shyness and were sure he'd make great progress over time. Plus, he'll get to try herding goats, sheep and ducks and with that, we're sure he'll do great!

Clearly, Murphy was waiting for someone to call his own again and his new guardian was hoping for another fun-lovin' BC to join him again so they paired up perfectly!
