Ryan is joining his new family and canine friend where he'll have
plenty of acres to explore, living in Vermont and enjoy being the center
of attention, too. He and his new friend, Floss, developed a style of play
in rough-housing and chasing the soccer that was great to watch. His new
guardians were thrilled to see them in action and so Ryan headed off to a
life of love and fun.
RYAN: A 3 month old Border Collie, Ryan
is a sweet, good natured, little guy who loves to play with other dogs.
Soon as he meets a new canine friend, he wants to wrestle and chase
and boldly invites them to do so. Ryan would clearly love a friend.
He wants to be in the middle of everything, including your lap. Ryan
is easy going though if he has enough activity with another dog and then
hangs out near you once content. He is smart and likes to be
involved with all the activity but he's not overly intense. He
is a sweetheart relinquished to the Farm after the guardians realized he
was just too much for them.
found a great home where he'll be running on open fields joining his
FurDad at work, overseeing parks in upstate NY. And, he'll get to cuddle
at night with his FurMom and join her at athletic events where she's the
coach, fitting right into their active lifestyle which will suit him
perfectly. He'll get to try agility and frisbee and everything that's fun
for a young Border Collie. They loved him instantly and were thrilled to
have him join their lives.
REECE: A 6 month old Border Collie,
Reece is all action as well as affection. He loves to race, run and chase
and is showing herding instinct when with other dogs. He is very smart,
and very fast and eager to bond with people and join in the action. He is
super friendly and good natured as well as high energy, like most young
BC's. He is about 30 pounds and is OK with dog savvy cats. Reece
loves the water and is one happy swimmer. He and his
sister, Rayne, came to rescue from NJ when their guardian became ill.
found the perfect life where she can have a BC buddy and a guardian who
understands her. Chessie loves to cuddle and play and she'll have plenty
of time to do that in her forever home. She's joining another BC alum who
also loves that same thing and they hit if off playing like old friends.
And, Chessie and Willy (formerly Chance) have 125 acres to enjoy in their
new life, happily living in MA. We are so happy for both of them!
CHESSIE: A petite 1 year old Border
Collie, Chessie is a sweetheart, she loves attention and also loves
action! She is great with other dogs and loves to play and chase and make
up herding games. Chessie is smart and attentive and could easily learn
anything. She can be a little shy at first meetings but warms up quickly
and would be great with a Border Collie savvy person and other BC's in the
home. She is very sweet and good natured. She is 30 pounds and is not good
with cats. She is trained on the Invisible Fence.Chessie
(originally named Princess), was relinquished to the Farm from PA
guardians due to issues with the other more mature female dog in the
home. Chessie is being fostered in NH
happily found a new life with guardians who adore the breed and love all
the wired antics of maniacal ball play and frisbee catching...surely what
Lace loves too! She won their hearts when they saw her online and in
person, lived up to that wide-eyed, focused manner, exactly what they
wanted in their lives. Lace hopped in the car and headed out to a great
life in NJ, where balls, frisbees and lots of loves are all hers to have.
Lace found her new home, in honor of Rusty, a GHF alumni, who passed on
unexpectedly with ill health. They knew she'd carry on his legacy well.
LACE: A petite 1 year old Border
Collie, Lace is all action, she just loves to play ball and will focus
fast to catch and return it instantly. She is super sweet and eager to
find a connection with someone where she can use her mind and body
together. She is classic in her drive and intensity, a very good candidate
for sports. Lace is fine with other dogs and will engage in play if the
ball is not the focus, but really wants to intently use her mind with a
person. She can easily fit in with other Border Collies but could also be
a solo dog where she had the right outlet for her. She is about 25 pounds
and not yet tested on cats. She was a stray in PA.
found his new home quickly, almost as soon as he came into rescue when
just the right guardians came to meet him, looking for a friend for their
BC girl, Layla. She and Gus hit it off instantly, playing like fast
friends, clearly the right fit for her and for them! He had a great chance
to get to join their family since they stayed at the local Inn, spending a
relaxed time getting to know him and allowing him to get to know them
before they headed off to home in PA. Gus will have plenty of toy play,
including frisbee and even a chance to try sheep.
GUS: AN 11 month old Border Collie, had his first outing apple picking and found the whole experience to be a
bit of surprise since the apple surely wasn't his ball! Gus is a
sweetheart, gentle and smart and really enjoying being with other BC's. He
is learning that life is good and he can learn to relax and trust everyone
around him. He can be timid at first so will need some time to blossom.
He's a wonderful guy with lots of energy and lots of ability which now can
be productively focused. Gus really needs a BC savvy person who
understands what makes this breed so unique and special. He is about 30
pounds and is good with cats.
found a great Border Collie life on 30 acres with another BC friend, where
he'll be the constant companion to his new guardians. He'll get plenty of
ball play since his new BC friend, Bess, also loves the ball. His morning
throwing routine will make Griff one happy boy. Griff won their hearts
with his gentle nature and sweet ways, knowing that they could offer him
lots of love and patience in helping him continue to trust that life is
great! We know Griff is great and we're happy to say we know his life will
now be great!
Special thanks to the Rollins family who
helped Griff learn all about living in a home with people he could count
on, which gave him the foundation for this big day to become reality.
A 3 year old Border Collie, Griff is a gorgeous guy who is shy and
needs patient people who love drawing out his sweet, curious nature. Like
most skittish Border Collies, he does best with dog friends so will only
be placed with other Border Collies. He is very gentle, very sweet and curious
about everything. He's learning all about toys now and will eagerly come
up for attention, too. He is a wonderful spirit and will surely
blossom into the border collie he was meant to be. He is about 35 pounds
and ok with cats. Griff will be placed in a hard fence situation
only, not underground electronic fence systems Griff was
originally a stray in Texas when our new caretaker took him into her
rescue. Griff is being fostered in NJ
4 year old Border Collie, Dustie is a smart, focused Border Collie who
responds well to attention. Dustie loves balls, frisbee and toys of any kind, a classic BC. He is an
incredible ball guy, who is fast and focused going after any ball toss
sent his way. Dustie loves people and toys pretty much the same so will
easily enjoy a new life with someone who understands his BC brilliance and
desire to play.
Dustie needs a strong leader who gives him the job of frisbee to do,
ideally. He does best relating to one person clearly giving him direction
since he is so focused on work. He will only be place where there is
work for him in sports and with a savvy BC person. He could be a solo dog
or join other BC's in a BC
savvy home. Dustie is a sweet guy who loves to be in the center of
the action, for fun and for love. Dustie is OK with dog savvy cats. He was abandoned at a PA shelter.
Dustie learned all about frisbee in his foster home and was superb
BUDIE is about to be the
happiest Border Collie in all of NY...he's landed the ideal home for him!
He's the constant companion to his new guardians who love this breed and
understand them and felt he was perfect for their life, too. He has a
great yard for exploring but knowing Budie, he'll be right at their feet,
contentedly tossing toys or chewing on a bone. Budie loves to be with a
person and today made that all possible again!
A 7 year old Border Collie, Budie is all about people and playing. He is
fast and fun to watch as he chases ball and frisbees. He loves the game
but the great thing about Budie is he also knows how to relax and will
contentedly hang with you inside, happy to be by your side. Budie is great
with other dogs but could happily enjoy life as the solo dog, which he's
used to. He needs someone who keeps him mentally stimulated with toy play
or walks cause he will make up his own games which includes a focus on
cars so while he's a calm, easy going guy, he still needs to play, play,
play. Budie is great with kids and fine with cats and could easily join
other dogs in a family or be a beloved companion. Budie was
abandoned at a shelter in NJ due to allergies. He is 60 pounds and
a bit taller than the average BC. He
has an interest in cars so will need to be on a hard fence in a
more rural setting, not a high traffic area
ANGIE won the hearts of a former adopter who brought alum, Finn,
back to visit to add little Angie to their lives. Angie happily said hello
to everyone and gave her approval, asking for plenty of belly rubs. We're
sure she and Finn will find their way to enjoying plenty of border collie
games in their new life together. They have acres and acres to explore and
a family devoted to loving her forever! She lives in upstate NY.
got it all!! Sheep, chickens, llamas, goats, two BC buddies, including one
young GHF alumn plus two loving guardians who adore the breed and fell in
love with her instantly! Kellie and Duncan (previously Dougee) were fast
friends, racing around, chasing and wrestling til they both focused on
herding the animals, quite a pair to watch. We are certain Kellie will
have a fabulous life, forever happy and busy! She now lives in upstate NY.
We're just thrilled for this little girl to have found a border collie
dream come true.
Special thanks to Kristin and Dana Browne
who gave their hearts and home to help Kellie be ready for this moment.
petite 10 month old Border Collie, Kellie is a gem, full of energy and
ready to go. She just radiates joy. She is the most affectionate
little girl and the most active, non-stop BC. Kellie loves to race and
chase and make up herding games with the young BC's at the Farm. A
really wonderful temperament, this girl needs a lot to do so will be
placed with another young BC. Kellie is smart and interested in
learning, very relationship oriented so could learn anything. She is good
with cats. Kellie
came to the Farm from a PA shelter where she had been found as a stray.
to the Farm with a broken leg which is now all set to go.
She'll have a bit of a turn outward but orthopedic surgeons agree that
it's as good as it can be. She may need pain meds later in life but right
now, this incredible girl is all about fun and joy and love and is very
ready to find her new home!!
A 1 year old old Border Collie mix, Rylie is a lively, happy, good natured
boy who loves to run and chase with other dogs. He is fast and focused
when he's making up his canine games. Rylie is also super friendly and a
real cuddly guy, full of joy. He is smart and interested in everything
going on around him, joining into the action at a moment's notice. Rylie
can be a little skittish with some men so needs to be with someone who
understands training and how to keep him feeling confident. He has
been a part of Camp Border Collie for Kids and is doing great with the
kids. Rylie has been enjoying time on the trails at the Farm and turns
out, he is a water lover supreme - he splashes and dunks and swims like a
fish - happily entertaining himself. It's fabulous to see his puppy nature
discovering the water! He is about 35 pounds and is OK with dog savvy cats.
Rylie was abandoned in a NY shelter due to his energy level
and BOBBIE found their forever home TOGETHER and we're thrilled
they did! Their new guardians really understand what these two boys need
and fell in love with their sweet natures instantly. They knew they could
help their confidence grow and get stronger when it comes to strangers and
enjoy their transformation, having a hand in making life great for them,
forever. We are so appreciative of people with great hearts who know that
rescue dogs often need guidance and help in making life work for them. It
was a great day to see these two boys head out together to a loving home
like this. Rylie had a chance to overnight in the nearby Inn in town, and
he became fast friends with his new FurDad who absolutely adored him, come
morning. The irony is they felt drawn to each of these dogs and so it was
no surprise, that once they met them, they knew they were the right place
for them, forever. They now live in NJ on lots of acreage where they'll
have the space to enjoy a fabulous life. They have a small canine friend,
sheep, horses and lots to do!
Special thanks to Lori Coon and her family who
helped Bobbie mature over the past 7 months so he could be ready for this
1 yr old Border Collie mix, Bobbie is all fun and play. He is good natured
and ready to enjoy a good game of ball or anything going on, he joins
right in. He is interested in dogs and gets along well with most dogs he
meets. He is also very sweet and loves to cuddle. Bobbie is
energetic but not as intense as some so could enjoy a companion home life
without needing something to do all the time. He absolutely loves having
another young canine friend so will only be placed with another dog and
with someone who can provide a positive training approach. Bobbie is
about 40 pounds and Ok with dog savvy cats. He
came from PA, his family was unable to meet his needs. Bobbie
was taken in by caring people who actually were driving behind a car and
saw him tossed out the window - the car did not stop - he was
approximately 4 months old
Aidan found his new life on a rainy day at the Farm when he met his
bc friend, Maggie and she gave her vote of approval. She wagged and he
wagged and it was a done deal. Of course, his new guardians were so hoping
Maggie would say yes so once she did, they were thrilled. Aidan has a
great life with lots of people around with their home business and lots of
land to explore plus even chickens to herd! Aidan now lives in MA and we
know he'll be adored and busy!
ALEXIS found a wonderful life with a GHF alum, Buzz, who came back
with his guardians for a BC friend. They fell in love with her gorgeous
face and sweet nature and happily headed back to NJ, thrilled to have
another beloved canine friend. Buzz is camera shy but happily greeted his
new friend til it was time for the picture! We know Alexis will have a
great life of Border Collie fun and love.
found her forever home where she'll be doing agility all the time as well
as having fun exploring her great yard with her canine friends. She won
the hearts of her new guardians when they met her in the foster home and
just felt she was exactly the Border Collie they were hoping for! Rayne
thought so too and now happily lives in NJ and we'll get to hear about her
great successes and loving life all the time.
RAYNE: A 6 month old Border Collie,
Rayne is all BC, very classic in her focus and herding interest. She is
very smart and responding to the dogs with keen interest, watching and
thinking about everything going on, then she decides on her action
-herding. She is super agile and fast and could be a great sport
candidate. Rayne is also incredibly sweet and eager to bond, friendly with
everyone. She is about 30 pounds and she is OK with dog savvy cats. She and
her brother, Reece, came to rescue from NJ when their guardian became ill.
Rayne is being fostered in NJ to be evaluated for herding and
agility, we'll update her bio shortly.
found a great home where she'll be able to do agility, try herding and
learn all kinds of things that Border Collies love to do. Her new guardian
loved her personality and smarts and Nina clearly picked her, happily in
her arms and thoughtfully showing that this was the home she wanted. It
was so obvious, that it just reconfirmed just how smart Nina is! Nina will
have two canine friends to enjoy this great new life and we're sure she'll
love all of it! She now lives in MA.
NINA: A petite 2 year old tri color
Border Collie, Nina is a wonderful, smart , ready to go girl who is all
about the ball! She is focused and eager to play, doing her work

savvy cats and about 35 pounds. Nina was relinquished due to a
divorce, from a NY guardian.

canine friends! He'll be hiking and enjoying the great outdoors with his
new guardians who just love his sweet nature and were thrilled to have him
join their lives. He happily strolled around the field at the Farm,
playing with his new friends and following their lead in what will be a
wonderful, loving life, forever. Sloan deserves only the best and now,
he'll have it!
1 year old Border Collie, Sloan is a doll, happy, good natured and very
involved in everything around him. He's quite the herder but also enjoys
playing and chasing games. He is smart and curious and very eager to bond.
His good nature is a joy to see as he's really having a great time
at the Farm, free to be himself. He would be happiest with a BC
friend and a patient person who can help him navigate his new life. A
real love bug, he races right out to the first person he sees to say hello
and then off to the action! He
is about 40 pounds and not yet tested on cats
found his forever home with one of our favorite families who has adopted
three dogs from us over the years, all living long long lives. This time,
they were ready for action and Judd won their hearts and is keeping them
on their toes! He's a bit bigger than the furry friends they've had so
they have lost some bed space but he's charmed everyone he's met and loves
playing jolly ball with his new kids! Judd is a family boy and is clearly
loving the family life! He now lives in PA.
A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie mix (possibly Great Pyrenees), Judd is a
lover, so excited to be with everyone and what a happy guy he is! He's
good natured, easy going and just reminds us why BC mixes are such great
dogs. He is energetic and playful, eager to be with a person. He gets very
excited and since he's a big boy, could easily overwhelm kids so best in
an adult home who can focus his energy and mind, all in one direction.
Judd needs a great yard to explore and run since he is an active guy who
loves to play, his favorite toy is the jolly ball and he'll leap across
fields, racing to play time and time again. He's like a big puppy. Judd
is interested in other dogs but could live as a solo dog. He is a tall mix
and bigger boned and since he came from a farm area, he just might be part
Great Pyrenees but we don't know for sure. He is good with cats and 70lbs. Judd
was a stray in upstate NY and a nice couple held onto him until they could
find rescue to make sure he finds a good home.
found her forever home with another Border Collie and two guardians who
just love the breed and fell in love with her quickly. Her funny nature,
carrying that jolly ball while herding their dog, made them chuckle and
then once inside the adoption office, her sweet ways touched their hearts.
Honey will surely be adored and have a great time playing ball and frisbee
and being the constant companion to her new guardians. She now lives in

Honey is all about the ball - she just loves to race and chase and carry
it around with her! She is a sweet, fun girl who also loves to hang with
you once inside. She curls right up in the bed and takes part in all that
goes on - she's our office dog right now and hearing all the excitement at
the Farm - she's enjoying every bit of it. Honey is smart, responsive and
very tuned into people. She loves everyone she meets. She is good with
other dogs but could easily be a solo dog since she loves being with her
person. She is about 40 pounds and not good with cats. She was
abandoned at a Delaware shelter due to a move. She had a summer
clip so soon we'll update her pictures with gorgeous long hair!

Farm where he'll be living. His new guardians adopted Flyer last year and
came now to add a new friend and fell in love with this little dynamo.

checked out everything around, boldly content to explore and also happy
for cuddling. He quickly won their hearts. He now lives in NY.

had her dreams come true and quickly! She met one of our volunteers who
helped with the arrival of the TN dogs and their hearts connected. Quiet
promises of 'I'll be back' came true today when Jazzi's new furMom brought
her gang to meet Jazzi (minus the senior BC at home) and things went so
well, off she went to Massachusetts to start her new life. Jazzi was so
excited to say hello again, it was quite clear that she believed those
simple words and now, will live a great life, one that she most certainly
deserves. We are thrilled for both Jazzi and her new guardians.
1 year old Border Collie, Jazzi fits her name perfectly - she is full of
spunk, ready to go and all about action. She is a very focused, intense
girl who will most likely need something to keep her busy but at the very
least, she'll need a young BC friend. She is having so much fun playing
with other BC's, it's fantastic to see. She's smart, affectionate and
wants to be connected to people and all the action. She is ready for
a new life and will be a wonderful companion, a good candidate for
sports. She is 35 pounds and
needs dog savvy cats since she's got a lot of BC eye and
interested in herding
found her forever home with a new guardian who had patiently waited for
just the right dog to come into rescue. In fact, she waited 9 months as
dogs came and went, hoping to hear about a dog that fit her situation
perfectly. Soon as she saw Gilley's pictures, she wrote asking about her
and once she heard about her sweet, easy going nature, she knew she had to
come meet her in person. Overnighting at the nearby Inn in town, they
bonded quickly, Gilley looking to her as if they were long lost friends.
Her new FurMom felt the same way so Gilley headed out to Ct for a new
life, living inside a nice warm home, truly loved and adored. She'll have
a great property to explore, lots of people to meet and just the right
home for the rest of her life!
GILLEY: 5 year old Border Collie, Gilley is a doll and loves everyone instantly.
She is super friendly and eager to say hello. She is also enjoying
her freedom to really explore the Farm, racing around and smelling
everything, curious to see it all. Gilley is pretty relaxed, not an
overly intense BC, so would love being the constant companion to someone.
She also enjoys other dogs though a person matters most. Gilley had been
left outside, chained to a dog 'box', sitting in mud, day in and day out.
She was relinquished to the Farm due to her guardian's illness.
Fortunately, Gilley will now enjoy a better situation. She came from
Pittsburgh directly to the farm.
found the perfect life for him where he's got plenty of Border Collie
friends and a family that really understands the breed plus one of his new
canine friends is his age and they love to play. Soon as they met, they
raced off around the field like fast friends, absolutely fantastic to
watch. Clearly, the picked each other, two joyful, good natured friends
for life! Weller will have great fun in his new life and tons of love,
too. He's a long way away from the awful kennel setting now and we're so
thankful to see this day. He now lives in MA.
1 year old Border Collie, Weller is all about fun and he is focused on
everything - toys, herding, other dog play - he's the life of the party.
He came to the Farm curious and eager to check everything out and
that is exactly what he's been doing. He just loves his new freedom and is
one very happy, good natured boy. Weller loves playing with his canine
friends and will clearly do well with a canine companion. He also loves
toys and flies across the field full speed to chase the other BC's he
plays with. Weller is sensitive too, so needs a patient guardian who
allows him to learn about life in a home. He's been doing great with his
housetraining, with full freedom in his room with no accidents at all.
His training needs will be much like a puppy where he'll need step
by step instruction
Weller is about 35 pounds and is good with cats
found a wonderful home where he'll be truly cherished forever. He
clearly choose his new guardians, instantly curled up in his FurMom's lap,
happily pawing at her for attention. He climbed up on the couch for a seat
next to his FurDad surely saying - wahooo, I've found it! - we all laughed
as we watched Ennis relax and enjoy his choice just as his new guardians
did, too. It was instant love. Ennis will have canine friends at his home
as well as his furgrandparents who came along to meet him, too. He made
quite the impression and headed out the gate to a new life where he'll be
their constant companion. He now lives in NY.

Ennis is a doll. He loves everyone and enjoys affection and attention, as
much as he can get and give. He's super sweet. He also loves to run, run,
run, enjoying his freedom. Ennis is great with other BC's and would easily
enjoy having a canine friend as well as someone who adores him. He's a
character full of personality and he quickly fits in wherever he goes,
happy to be with people or dogs. Ennis is about 35 pounds and good with
cats. He was no longer wanted by his guardian. Ennis does
have some hearing loss so can hear high tones like squeaky toys and high
found a forever home any Border Collie would love to have! He'll have 100
acres he can call his own and a devoted FurMom who loves the breed and
just adored him instantly. He'll be her constant companion at their farm,
enjoying the days with her and his new canine buddy. Tripp had a great
overnight at the nearby Inn, hopping up on the bed for a cuddle, then
herding his new puppy friend and then out for a walk, happily content to
have a new person focused on him. We are so thrilled for Tripp who's been
in rescue for one year, getting ready day by day, month by month, for this
great moment where he could have a life of love and freedom to be a Border
Collie. He deserves it all! Tripp now lives in MD.
A special thanks to Joy Moll who
fostered Tripp for five months to help him learn again that people can be
A 3 year old Border Collie, Tripp is very smart and curious about
everything around him. He's very easy to live with, not high energy and
will relax inside with his person. He also loves car rides and would
happily head out for any adventure with his guardian. He is good
with other Border Collies and would be happy with a canine friend, to
explore and investigate everything going on. Tripp is a friendly guy
but has a real thinker, very common in Border Collies so will only be
placed in a border collie savvy home that understands him and doesn't
force him into situations he's not ready for. He will do best with
clear leadership and lots of love. Tripp is good with cats and lived in
one home since a pup, from a nearby breeder. He lived with
senior guardians who surrendered him to their local vet in CT who
contacted us to take him into rescue. They felt he was too much for them
to handle. Tripp is being fostered in upstate NY and can
be seen at the Farm
found a classic Border Collie life with two other BC's who are as action
focused as he is and love the ball just as much. Soon as he joined this
duo, they were a trio like dogs who were meant to be together. The soccer
ball was tossed and off they went, racing and chasing, each with a jolly
ball in their mouths. They got along beautifully. Jet's new guardians were
in love before they came and soon as they saw this, it was crystal clear
this is exactly where he belonged. He now lives in MA. Charming Jet struck
his normal puppy pose, with a little tip of his tongue sticking out!
JET: A 6 month old Border Collie, Jet
is a sweet, good natured, happy boy who loves people. He also loves
action! He is classic BC through and through and loves to have another
young BC for playing. He and Ruby have hit up a great connection instantly
and loved herding each other all over the Farm. Jet is smart, attentive
and very responsive. He will quickly learn whatever is asked of him. He
loves to swim and is great at playing hide and seek games. He'll be placed
with another young BC so he can enjoy a great life, Border Collie style.
Jet is about 35 pounds and while good with cats, will chase them. He
was surrendered to the Farm from a NY guardian who felt he needed
more than the family could provide.
now and then, a certain dog just touches your heart and you know instantly
that the particular dog in front of you must be YOUR dog. That's exactly
what happened to our web person as she visited the Farm. She's met
thousands of dogs and manages all the wonderful listings, seeing their
faces day in and day out but something between she and Ean clicked like no
other the day she met him. So, Ean is now living in NJ with a pack of
Border Collies, so he's in good company and
will be cherished beyond belief. We are so excited for Ean to have a
chance to receive the deep and lasting love that he was not given at first
but will surely receive forever now. WAHOOOOOOOO Ean and Cindy!
EAN: A 5 month old Border Collie, Ean
is a gorgeous guy who adores toys of any kind. He will entertain himself
endlessly with a squeaky ball or race around tossing toys to catch. He
loves being with other Border Collies and quickly pals up with another
young dog for racing and chasing games. He loves to join in herding games
and follow the lead of the other dogs, learning quickly from them. Ean is
very sweet, cuddly and curls up next to you in bed, happy to stretch out
all night. He is also a pup who has had a hard start so really needs
patient guardians who let him enjoy the freedom of play without being
wrong. His previous guardian was rough on him when he did anything 'wrong'
like having accidents. Ean works hard to not do anything wrong because of
that so needs soft, positive approaches. He is having a blast living in
the founder's home with a big pack who show him things are all ok. He
could easily fit into a Border Collie pack and will certainly do well. He
gets nervous in new situations at this point so will be placed in an adult
only home. Ean is about 20 pounds and good with cats. He was
relinquished because his family could not meet his needs.
found a fabulous home with lots of canine friends who love to race, chase
and do agility! She will be a star in the sport, exactly what her new
FurMom was looking for since all their dogs compete and are a part of her
life as a dog trainer. Ruby will also be a beloved family member for sure
and quickly won their hearts with her dog kisses and leaps into their
laps. It was adorable to watch Ruby be the wild and crazy, loving Ruby and
be totally loved for it all! She now lives in NJ. We are hoping to hear of
her great successes in the future and know for sure, she'll be having a
blast in her new home
RUBY: An 9 month old Border Collie,
Ruby is a lover, a doll and all action, non-stop go, go go, just like
every other young BC! She is smart as a whip and could easily learn
anything and excel in sports. She's the perfect more petite size for
sports, too. Ruby is great with other BC's and really needs a friend for
all the racing and chasing she loves to do. She fits in with other dogs
just fine, easily adjusting and in fact, has decided that the big pack
she's living with now, suit her just fine! She's quite the cuddler too and
loves people. Ruby is, however, very high energy so needs a BC savvy home.
She is about 30 pounds and loves the water and will happily jump in for a
swim. Ruby needs to be with dog savvy cats since she's interested in
herding them. She lived in NY,
in one home as a puppy but was too much for her guardians who were gone
found wonderful guardians who were drawn to her beauty and intelligence
and easily fell in love in person. They knew their Border Collie needed a
friend and most importantly, they wanted a 2nd BC to join their family.
She was exactly what they were hoping to find. Focused totally on the
dog's needs, Gwen is about to enjoy tons of BC games, racing and chasing
and enjoy plenty of toy play as her life unfolds in Canada. She will
surely be a cherished family member and one of the most stimulating canine
friends imaginable since Gwen is wickedly smart and will thrive with
people who can keep ahead of her!
A 1 yr old
Border Collie, Gwen is incredibly sweet and loves to be next to her
person. She also loves to race and chase with other Border Collies. Gwen
is toy oriented and fast on her feet. She is also deaf and already has
basic obedience commands with hand signals. She is very relationship
oriented and is a great learner. Gwen does best with submissive Border
Collies since she's like most girls, a bit bossy and likes to be in
charge. Gwen loves to go on trail walks and also love the water!
She could be a solo dog, too. Gwen is 40 pounds and is OK with
dog savvy cats. She was a present to an elderly woman in NY near the
Farm who of course realized she couldn't care for her properly.
found a marvelous life with 125 acres, his very own lake and guardians who
are around all the time to enjoy his Border Collie nature! They love the
breed and found his sweet, friendly nature and maniacal ball play, to be
exactly what they were hoping to have again since their beloved BC passed
on. He won their hearts with big licks of love and cuddling so he happily
headed out to VT where he's about to discover a nature wonderland fit for
KELL: A 1 1/2 year old Border Collie,
Kell is a wonderful, easy going, all action boy who wants to play and run
and chase. He loves balls and loves to play with other dogs, too. Kell is
great with everyone he meets and fits in beautifully into new situations.
He is smart, focused and very responsive, a great candidate for sports.
Kell is about 40 pounds and good with cats. He was
surrendered to a NY shelter by guardians who had to move.
found the best life he could find where he'll be the constant companion to
his FurDad, have a great, easy going canine friend who likes to hang out
with his person, and, he'll get to hike and swim in his own pond which
Duke will absolutely love! Duke, Scout and his new guardian walked the
fields, enjoying time together, getting into a rhythm that clearly showed
they were going to be a great trio! We are so happy for Duke who was so
upset by the change in his life but now, he'll be back in a home again,
living in NY.
DUKE, a gorgeous 7 year
old Border Collie, Duke is an easygoing guy. He has been an adored much
loved companion, and is fantastic with people, a perfect gentleman who
loves to spend time relaxing at home. Duke has lived in one home since a
pup so really loves being with his people. He is a great companion,
not overly intense but instead, more excited by joining in family life. He
is very smart and observant and eager to bond. Duke loves balls of
all sizes, swimming, and car rides. Duke is about 60 pounds and is taller
than an average bc. He is not good with cats. Duke was
relinquished to the Farm by his elderly guardians from CT
WILLOW WILL LIVE AT THE FARM
On sunday Dec, 14th at 1:30am, Willow had 7 seizures clustered together
within 45 minutes that required valium to stop the pattern from
continuing. At 6:55am, she had another seizure, again controlled by
valium. Willow will now begin medication for treatment of epilepsy. This
new situation, combined with her compulsive spinning and barking means
Willow will remain at the Farm rather than be adopted into a home. She
will continue living with the founders which offers her the best
opportunity for healing. The canine pack helps stabilize her while the
medical intervention helps to hopefully control her seizures. We love
Willow and optimistically hope we can give her the loving life she so
6 year old Border Collie, Willow is finally taking interest in the people
around her, not so lost in her own world. She is super sweet and gentle,
absolutely asking for little when it comes to people. Of all the TN dogs,
she is the saddest case but we expect the greatest transformation as she
finds her spirit again. She'll
be at the Farm awhile as she finishes her heartworm treatment and then
ready for foster care. She is fine with other dogs but in need, mostly, of
a person, to focus on her and give her the love she has clearly never had.
We are sure Willow was a breeding dog, litter after litter, only exploited
for breeding. She is about 35 pounds and not yet tested on cats.
found the perfect home where he'll get a chance to enjoy serious agility
competition as well as other sports. His new guardian is a dog trainer and
had been looking for just the right young rescue so when she saw him on
the site, she knew she had to travel to the Farm to meet him. Seeing him
in action made her know he would fit perfectly into her canine pack and
her life with all the dog training and activities she does. Meko will
thrive and blossom we are sure as he really gets to combine all his focus,
energy and mind in jobs that are so well suited to him. Plus, he'll get
plenty of running time at the beach which he loves, the water boy that he
is! He now lives in NY.
MEKO: A 9 month old Border Collie with
ABCA papers, Meko is all action, a big ball dog who wants to go, go, go.
He is an amazing Border Collie, so focused and with so much eye, he would
love an active home that uses his mind and body. Meko responds in
seconds to what is asked of him, whether it's with toys, being called or
to race at high speed, he is eager to be challenged. He is fearless,
leaping up onto any tall surface or jumping through anything in his way,
and could really learn anything and is super fast and agile. He is good
with other dogs, especially best with other Border Collies though he could
be a solo dog with an active guardian. Meko will only be placed in a BC
savvy home since he is high energy. He loves attention and responds
quickly to affection and is happy to meet everyone. Meko would do best
with dog savvy cats since he's interested in herding them. He is 33
pounds. Meko was bought as a gift by a NJ guardian who wanted
to cheer herself up after her father died but now realizes she doesn't
have time for him.
found a fabulous home where she'll have plenty of acres to explore,
racing, chasing and playing, as the constant companion to her new
guardians. She won their hearts instantly, jumping into their laps for
cuddling and kisses, as only Gertie can do. They'd met a few dogsbut
quickly decided this was the one they wanted to spend their life with,
forever! Gertie will be totally adored for sure with her new guardians who
were charmed by her loving ways. She now lives in New Hampshire.

say hello with those persuasive eyes, she is lovely and instantly friendly
with everyone. A curious, good natured girl, she loves to check things out
and enjoys the other Border Collies at the Farm. Gertie is also quite the
cuddler and loves a good snuggle. She is good with the other dogs though
seems most interested in people at this time. She previously lived with
golden retrievers and loved to play. She quickly got Stan to play and is
giving play bows to all the dogs she meets so we'd like to see her have a
BC friend. Gertie is good with cats. She is about 35 pounds. She was
living in an unfenced situation on a Farm and the farmer didn't want her
because she wouldn't herd the cows. A neighbor intervened to get
her to safe haven at the Farm because she had started to visit neighbors,
wandering along near the traffic. We are so happy Gertie made it to the
found a wonderful home where she'll be the center of attention, along with
her new canine buddy and enjoy the adoration of her new guardians. They
thought she was a beautiful girl with a wonderful personality and her
charm quickly won their hearts. Shanon will enjoy cuddling this holiday
after so many months post surgery and rehab, waiting for the day she could
run around, pain free! She happily headed out to her new life, living in

described her behavior too well and we wanted to give her a name that
encouraged a more confident, outgoing nature) A 3 year old Border Collie mix,
Shanon is a lovely, good natured, sweet girl. She loves everyone and is
super friendly. Shanon is also good with other dogs, a very easy going
human companion and canine companion. She loves playing with toys but
we're keeping her calm right now until she can arrive at the Farm. She was abandoned at a PA shelter when her guardians could
not afford her medical care. She lived her entire life with an
elderly relative who recently died, meaning she went to the guardians home
who then could not care for her.

loving guardians who fell in love when they saw her on the site and again,

potential to be a great agility dog. . Callie came to the Farm
from NY guardians who felt they could not meet her needs.
found a fabulous home where he'll have plenty of fun with active guardians
who spend lots of time outdoors, hiking, snowshoeing and exploring their
230 acres! Chip is great off leash so will have a blast joining them as
well as his canine buddy, Shady, who loves to run and play, too. He'll
have lots of love, too as he won their hearts soon as they spent time with
him! Chip now lives in Vermont.
CHIP: An 11 month old
Border Collie, Chip is learning that life can be quite fantastic if you
have dog friends and toys to play with! Chip is a bit insecure but
quickly comes out of his shell with the help of another, confident young
dog. He likes to herd other Border Collies but is also learning how
to wrestle and play like a young dog should. In the house Chip is a
very happy, easygoing boy, entertaining himself with toys and then curling
up on the couch to watch television. He also loves to cuddle in your lap,
taking a break from all the action. Chip LOVES toys of all kinds and is
learning how to play frisbee - showing lots of promise in his foster home.
Chip had previously lived on a farm where he was kept mainly outdoors
before being relinquished to a shelter that works with the farm. He
is being fostered in Vt and blossoming quickly.
found a great home to call her own with 17 acres and a person devoted
totally to her so she'll have tons of play and plenty of time to explore
the outdoor paradise, including swimming which is her favorite activity.
Her new guardian understood Bea's hesitations with strangers since his
previous BC was pretty similar so he was excited to help her gain more
confidence and provide a loving life. Bea now lives in NY.

Bea is a sweet girl who will blossom with a routine and a person who cares
about her. She loves attention and offers plenty of affection. Bea is very
observant about everything around her and wants to join in all the action.
She needs some help with her confidence at first and with men. Once she

energy like any young BC but settles beautifully inside. She is great with
other dogs but happiest as the center of attention so will be placed as an
only dog. She will only be placed with Border Collie savvy guardians who
can help Bea gain more confidence. She is about 40 pounds and good with cats. She was abandoned at a PA shelter that works with

side, the combination was irresistible. Bailey will have a great New Year
