talented, wonderful character we call Minna found a new home
recently with our frisbee instructor from Camp Border Collie &
Friends. He had initially seen Minna during the camp week when she
was adopted and said he'd take her in an instant if the camper didn't take
her...well, his wishes came true when Minna came back to the Farm due to
personal reasons. We quickly told him she was again available so she
had a home within seconds. We're proud to say that not only will Minna
become a talented frisbee dog, but she'll also be doing therapy work with
Fly-n-k9 USA, performing for children in hospitals and other educational
venues. She joins her new guardian's other dog, Spirit, shown with
her. The Fly-n-k9 team has logged over 20,000 hours of therapy work.
For anyone who has met Minna, especially children, it's clear to see how
destiny led her to her new life!!!! Minna will be coming back to
Camp Border Collie for Kids and showing us her wonderful ways for years to
come! Minna received her Canine Good Citizen certificate too!
Minna now lives in upstate NY.
- petite Minna is a 6 month old purebred border collie with the unusual
blue coloring complete with white tipped ears. She is a wonderful little
girl, with lots of spunk and curiosity and eager to bond with someone
instantly. She grabs toys and wants to play all the time, joins in
with the other dogs, racing and running around the Farm and most of all,
lands in your lap or by your side for lots of affection. Minna is
very, very alert and will probably be a typical border collie, active and
energetic and she is very smart. Minna is about 22 pounds and will
always be fairly small. Minna is not good with cats. Minna would
be fine as the solo dog in a home or mixing with more submissive dogs.
Either way, she will need a physical outlet for her mind and body as she
is fast, smart and very agile. She'd be incredible in flyball or
agility. Minna will need to be in a home with an electronic fence
system since she can dig and climb most fences fairly easily but will
respect the invisible fence. Minna was a stray in a shelter.
big bear-like Smitty found his forever home with a wonderful couple
who just felt his sweet nature belonged in their life. He has
another doggy friend, a 120 pound German Shepherd to play with, 10 acres
of wooded countryside and guardians who are home most of the day to enjoy
him. Smitty happily hopped into the front seat and rode cuddled in
their laps all the way home. Smitty now lives in central NY. Smitty
had just gotten a Border Collie Angel from our final summer camp which
just proves that all that loving energy helps!!
SMITTY: A 5 year
old Border Collie (maybe mix), Smitty is a gentle, good natured, people
oriented border collie. He fits in beautifully into new situations,
joining all the dogs at the Farm without any issue whatsoever.
Smitty is very interested in everyone he meets, comes over and quickly
sits next to you and wants to be connected. He's a cuddler! He
is also fairly mellow so very content to hang around with whatever
activity is underway, not herding or nipping but literally, just being
with people or dogs. Smitty is obedient, knows sit and comes when
called even though he's literally only had his name for days.
He likes toys and wants to play but would be best with adults since he is
a bit protective of what's his. Smitty is good with cats.
He is around 60 pounds. Smitty was in a shelter, found as a
stray and because of his sweet ways, the staff worked diligently to get
him into rescue.
Murphy found his forever home in a fabulous adult home, on 60 acres
where he can run, play and explore til his heart is content. His new
guardians loved his calm nature and gentle ways and felt he would fit
perfectly in their family. Murphy will be hiking and playing,
basically loving the country life, living in Connecticut. Murphy had
just gotten a Border Collie Angel from our final summer camp so all that
good energy obviously helped 'pull in' his new home!
MURPHY, a 3 1/2- 4 year
old purebred border collie, Murphy is very tuned in, aware of everything
around him. He is responsive to people, friendly and also
thoughtful, being a bit cautious about first meetings, very typical of a
border collie. He's checking everyone out a bit, before deciding to
connect. He is very interested in the ball, fast-moving to chase it
and will release it easily for another throw. Murphy is great with
other dogs, loves riding in the car and is good on leash. He will be
best in an adult home with someone who understands the mental, physical
and emotional stimulation needed for a border collie. Murphy is
typical in size, about 45 pounds. He was a stray taken into a
wonderful, sweet Larney found his forever home at Camp Border
Collie & friends when his new guardians came to visit with three of
their 7 border collies. While playing frisbee with Larney and their
dogs, they decided to become his Border Collie Angel and support his stay
at the Farm. Upon returning home, they called late one night to say
they just couldn't live without him. He had obviously won their
heart and now joins the pack, living in a home with agility available all
day, a great pond for swimming and continual frisbee and even sheep.
Larney definitely had an angel on his shoulder!! Larney now lives in
LARNEY: A 1 year
old Border Collie, Larney has unique markings with beautiful brown border
collie eyes, complete with the penetrating 'eye' the breed is famous for.
Larney is a very sweet, easy-going, engaging dog, interested in people and
great with other dogs. Larney simply loves playing ball and fixates
on anything and everything having to do with catching it and continuing
the game of retrieval. He is very focused and has an incredible eye,
the classic herding instincts. Larney went through our Camp Border
Collie for Kids program and passed his obedience work beautifully, knowing
sit, stay and come. He thrives on learning. He'll need another dog companion since he has
lots of interest in playing and enjoys dogs immensely. Larney is
about 40 pounds and is good with cats. Larney
was a stray due to be euthanized.
is feeling his way through his new home and we're waiting to see how he
adjusts since he had such a rough start from his past. He's found
wonderful guardians who fell in love with him when they met him and is
joining another furry friend to enjoy 170 acres on a horse farm in
Pennsylvania as well as 40 acres in his 'suburban' home in New Jersey.
Chazz can actively enjoy racing around, exploring, playing and even some
agility with the boys. We're hoping he can relax into his new life
and be there forever. Send good energy to Chazz as his transition is
causing some stress. (Chazz was abandoned in a kennel for 2 months after
living in a chaotic life with a heroin addict so gets nervous with change)
CHAZZ: A 3 1/2
year old purebred Border Collie, Chazz is wonderfully affectionate, loving
and happy to be with people interacting with him. He is a classic
Border Collie, alert, observant and sensitive. He doesn't like a lot
of commotion and prefers the routine of a fairly stable home. He's
great with other dogs, enjoys playing and would probably feel most
comfortable with another dog or with someone who was with him most of the
time. Chazz is not good with cats and is in need of lots of love and TLC since his former
guardian abandoned him at a kennel due to their problems in life. Chazz
was relinquished to rescue after a month's stay in a kennel.

especially two! It only took minutes before they knew this was a
match made in heaven...after cuddling, playing with toys, racing
around...they knew they were the sweetest, good natured dogs around.
Jaye & Kent now live in New Hampshire.

year old Border Collie brothers that simply adore each other,
thriving on the companionship, play and fun. They are delightful
together! Every attempt will be made to place them into a loving home
together. They have not yet been tested with cats. Both are
about 40 pounds, typical in size for border collies. They
were relinquished to a shelter because 'the kids outgrew them'...they
were due to be destroyed.
beautiful red & white purebred (with papers), Phoebe didn't
even make it onto the website. A former adopter, who now has Zappa as
their beloved companion, came to visit the Farm and fell in love with
her. At 3 years old, Phoebe, is an incredible athlete, poised to
catch any ball thrown as well as easy to teach frisbee- she's now the
'disc dog' in the family and will be learning next week. These two
quickly hit it off, racing together and eager to connect, an obvious
match. Phoebe now lives in Pennsylvania where she'll be hiking,
playing ball and frisbee and even agility.

works from home, has a pool (Lacey loves water) AND will be geese herding
twice a week -!!!! perfect for our herding girl who lives to round up
everything with her border collie eye! Her new guardian chuckled at
Lacey's brilliant and willful ways and felt she'd be a perfect addition to
her life and understands that Lacey lives to work! Lacey now lives
a 2 year old purebred, Lacey is keenly alert and aware of everything
around her. She is affectionate and very responsive to people. She'll sit
next to you, happy to be by your side, for hours. And, Lacey absolutely
LOVES children and will happily play for hours with toys, racing around,
throwing them in the air and making up games to entertain herself and
whomever she's playing with. She is incredibly gentle with children
and comes to life around them. She also loves the water, hops right
into the tub to cool off as well as will play 'hose' , trying to catch the
water as it comes out! She's a lively little girl who loves to play,
as well as work. Lacey is very, very fast, agile
and likely to do well in agility or flyball because of her size and speed.
She has been tested on sheep and possesses an intense focus to
work and could excel working with sheep or geese and love every minute of
it. She is petite, about 25-30 pounds. She is good
with most dogs but is dominant so best with submissive dogs. Lacey is very
obedient, quiet, not a barker and eager to please. She's a wonderful
little brilliant border collie! Lacey was relinquished to a
local shelter because the people had no time for her
wonderful little Mojo found his forever home with guardians who
adored him the minute they saw his picture and knew he'd fit in perfectly
in their life. He now lives on 11 acres with the pastor of a community in
VT who works from home and can't wait to take him to church - there's
another border collie already there every Sunday! Mojo also has a
new buddy in the young boy who fell in love with him, too. No more
worries for Mojo as a stray on the street surviving each night.
MOJO: A 4 month
old border collie mix, little Mojo is wonderful! A lively, spirited
soul who just loves other dogs and people, too. He already knows
sit, is almost totally housetrained and responds easily to people. He is
very alert, very fun and on his way to being a wonderful companion.
Mojo is not showing heavy herding instincts so would be fine in most
family situations. He'd be happiest with another dog. Mojo
was a stray taken to a animal hospital.
4 year old purebred Border Collie, Mickey came to our attention one day in
a literal 'do or die' situation... Mickey's elderly owner was going
into the hospital and the family had to find a solution for Mickey that
day. Just as they were to take him to a local shelter, a family member
read the newspaper and saw the article about Glen Highland Farm.
That meant Mickey found us and also found his new guardian, the person who
agreed to foster him. A few fast phone calls back and forth and
everything happened within hours. A beautiful, easy-going sweetheart, his
life had turned upside down, as was the family's but fortunately for
Mickey, he landed safely in a home for life. The foster person felt
Mickey was the beloved companion he'd been waiting for! Mickey lives
in Rochester, NY.

and chickens and a family of kids and adults who just love this breed!
She was immediately adored, as to be expected and will now have a loving
life forever! Hailey lives in New Jersey.
HAILEY: An 8 week old
border collie mix, little Hailey is a sweetheart who loves to cuddle as
well as race around making mischief! Like any puppy, she is playful,
full of energy and needs lots to do. She is getting along
beautifully with other dogs and friendly with everyone. Hailey is
not hyperactive but would be happiest with another dog for play. Hailey
was in a kill shelter. She is being fostered in southern NJ and
will be coming to the farm on 10/6.
wonderful Daemo now lives with another young border collie who
loves to play ball and soccer as much as he does and guardians who adore
this breed for all their brilliance and sweetness. Of course, Daemo
won them over with his desire for cuddles as well as his accuracy at
dropping the ball right in front of their feet! A smart Border
Collie, of course. Daemo now lives in Pennsylvania.

papers, Daemo is a very well balanced, energetic young dog. He is
friendly, great with other dogs and loves to play with balls. He's
ready to catch any and every ball! Daemo knows basic obedience
commands, is very responsive to people and eager to learn. He would
be happiest with another young dog and lots of room to run. Daemo is good
with cats. He was living in an urban environment
and relinquished so he would have freedom to run.
little Cinnie found her forever-ever home, as her new guardians
called it, living as the first dog for their little girl as well as
enjoying their love day and night. Within moments of meeting her,
she curled up by their side, loving to be touched and cared for and giving
back her sweet heart in exchange. Cinnie now lives in upstate NY.

human interaction. Her amber eyes will melt your heart. She is
always ready for the next adventure, keeping track of everyone in the
house and what they are going to do next. Cinnie loves to ride in
the car - insisting on being in the front seat. She is housebroken,
and gets along with dogs, cats, men and will fetch a tennis ball for the
kids (as long as she gets hugs in between throws!) Being petite at
just 25 lbs, she loves to curl up on the couch or stretch out on the bed
when it's time to settle down. Cinnie was in a kill shelter,
due to be euthanized.
boisterous and bold Maxx found his match with another border collie
mix, Kelsey who kept up with him on long dashes around the paddocks and

always been together, which was obvious to his new guardians who fell in
love within moments. Maxx now happily lives in Maine!
MAXX: A 10 month
old purebred Border Collie, Maxx is a blast! He has lots of energy to run
and race and must be with another young dog in order to play. He is
very alert, smart and interested in everything around him. He is not
showing heavy border collie instincts but is high energy and must go
to a home with a large yard and fencing. Maxx knows
sit, comes when called and is good on leash. He has been well
socialized with other dogs and people so is easy going around strangers
and loves being with people. Maxx is about 35 pounds and is good
with cats. Maxx

to the death of his guardian.

what she was bred to do - herding - she will be joining another dog
adopted from the farm, Merlin, who is chasing geese for his life's work as
part of his guardian's company, Geese Chasers. Paris runs like a
bullet, jumps high into the air and loved to race with Merlin, in a chase
for the frisbee. She will be happily learning all about geese and
working each day in New Jersey.
PARIS: A 9 month
old purebred Border Collie, Paris is a brilliant, focused dog, ready to
respond instantly to people or other dogs. She is very very alert,
shows herding abilities and could easily be trained for sports since she
is so athletic. She is very fast, loves to engage with other dogs

social, responding easily to everyone she meets. She adapts quickly
and is a well balanced Border Collie. Paris is fine with cats and
would be happiest with an active Border Collie guardian and another young
dog. Paris was previously at Best Friends, relinquished due to
lack of time.
Frisco found his forever home with one of our adopters who recently
volunteered, bringing Reece back to visit with her. Not even
planning to add a third dog, little Frisco entered the cabin for an
overnight and obviously entered her heart, too! She felt bringing
him to their home was the right thing to do so he now lives with two other
border collies in New Jersey, happy to race around like crazy as well as
FRISCO: A 10
month old sable color Border Collie, Frisco is a gem. Very
interested in people and eager to please, he is acclimating beautifully
with the other dogs and into the routine at the Farm. He is also
very agile, able to jump straight up as high as 5 feet which is how we
spotted him at the shelter. He was literally jumping up and down, making
sure we saw him! (we had gone in to see another dog) Frisco is
petite, about 30 pounds and will only be placed in an adult home.
Frisco is okay with cats, only needs a little supervision since he will
chase, as most border collies do but he is just curious. Frisco

now lives with new guardians in New Jersey, a caring minister who wants
Hollie to share her sweet heart with her forever as well as do therapy
work in the community. Hollie also gets another home in upstate NY
on 200 acres she can call her own!
HOLLIE: A 10
month old Border Collie mix, Hollie is very very sweet, eager to be with
people and great with other dogs. She is very shy at first and will
need patient guardians and a fairly calm environment so that she can
blossom. She would be happiest with another young, small dog for
play that would build her confidence more quickly. Hollie is
housetrained and a very
petite girl, about 20 pounds and likely to stay small. Hollie
was a stray at a shelter.
found his forever home in a home of music lovers! His new guardians are
music teachers so have a houseful of young pupils who learn the flute each

1/2 year old Border Collie (possibly mix), Rae is a very gentle, loving
dog who craves being with people and will thrive and blossom with the
right people who will adore him. Rae has stunning border collie eyes
and focuses directly on you when he's with you. For him, people are
the most important need in his life yet he's great with other dogs and
likes to play. Rae loves to play with balls and play catch the water
from the hose, jumping up with glee in an all out effort to 'get the
water'! His sweet nature is amazing considering he is shy and
skittish around men, and will run away if there is loud yelling or he
senses anger, most likely from a rough past. Rae is truly a diamond
in the rough and will be a very loyal companion, closely bonded to
whomever loves him. Rae is good with cats. He would be best in
a home without children and a lot of commotion, a calmer environment would
be best, probably with another dog which helps him feel more confident.
Rae was previously at Best Friends Sanctuary for 9 months. Rae
is being fostered in Southern NJ.
rescue, we hear story after story of neglect, abuse and ignorance.
We share this one with the hopes that you will help in funding the care of
this pup and/or consider adding her to your family. She will need a
home shortly and needs your support now.
DIXIE: A 6 month old border collie (with a bobbed tail), Dixie
had an unfortunate accident where she was carelessly allowed to run free
in the street, chasing an ATV. The guardians recently had their 6
month old lab killed by a car, so it was incredibly fortunate that Dixie
survived this mishap with a broken jaw and dislocated shoulder. An
awful occurrence for any dog, yet such a young dog who now requires 4-6
weeks of recovery from serious reconstructive surgery. The
family had no interest in funding her medical care so Dixie has luckily
been supported by a caring veterinarian in the NY area and through
donations of other dog lovers.
Our foster volunteers always make a difference in the lives of the dogs
they meet, but to Perry, it meant everything! He joined h is new
home, being fostered in in Rochester after being a stray on the streets,
meeting another border collie, Mickey, who also was fostered and recently
adopted. Well, Mickey and Perry now share the same home as their new
guardian, our foster volunteer Michael Heasley, decided they were both
just to wonderful to part with...so Perry is officially adopted! Yippeeeee!!!!
Another angel kindly brought Callie
into their lives forever - our foster family, Martha & Hartley
decided that Callie's best life would be staying with them. After
pulling Callie from a PA shelter where she had been brought in on a
stock truck, no longer wanted. She obviously had a life quite
abnormal from other dogs so will always need special understanding which
she will now get. We are forever grateful for their decision.
CALLIE: Callie is a stunning 2 year old
purebred Border Collie, who is extremely under socialized with
people. She will be in foster care for many months until she
improves and begins to adjust to normal day to day life. Callie was
relinquished to a shelter by a farmer with 6 other dogs, not all in good
condition. Fortunately, Callie seems very good-natured, showing no
signs of issues with people other than fear of new situations. Callie
is now being fostered in western Connecticut to help acclimate her to
DAWN: A beautiful
3 year old purebred with papers, Dawn (formerly called Dawg) is very very
affectionate and just loves to be petted and give her love back. She
is completely people oriented and will happily be with whatever person is
nearby. She is also very very active and loves circling other dogs,
using her herding instincts which are strong. She mixes fine with
other dogs but would need to be placed with a more submissive dog as she
can be protective of her food or toys.
Dawn could also be a solo dog
if she had an active guardian. She is a petite 30 pounds, common in
female bcs and has not been tested with cats, yet. Dawn
was relinquished due to nipping a child so will be placed in
an adult home, preferably border collie savvy.
A REAL ANGEL ARRIVED!!
Every now and then at the Farm, we are so inspired by what happens that we
are certain that Angels are real! Dawn's new guardian is one such angel
because Dawn has issues that prevent most people from wanting to
adopt her. Relinquished to us for nipping a child, Dawn has a
pattern of nipping anyone she does not know, not biting but nipping.
Obviously a very special person would tackle this but our belief was that
if Dawn could work, her anxiety and frustration would end ( a very common
belief among trainers that frustrated working border collies develop
aggressive behaviors since they are living as a family pet rather than
working) Dawn's herding instincts came alive at the Farm and she
lived to herd the other dogs non-stop, 24/7 so when her new guardian
called to adopt her for geese herding work (3 times a day) and was an
animal control officer, we were thrilled. With seasoned skills to
develop Dawn's trust as well as handle her as a working dog, Dawn went to
her new home in New York!
Nanna will be able to meet and greet people til her heart is
content now! She's found her forever home with another dog we adopted from
the farm, Lindy (the red one), and together they will be the dogs at a NY
upstate winery who of course steal everyone hearts with their friendly
hellos.... on some weekends, Nanna and Lindy will be greeting 800 people
who visit the winery! As anyone who has met Nanna will know, this is just
the perfect place for her sweet, good natured 'therapy'!
NANA: A 5 year
old Border Collie (possibly mix), Nana is an affectionate, people oriented
dog who is eager to be with human companions. She mixes in fine with other
dogs but definitely people are her first choice, dogs second. Nana
is quite a character as she talks to you all the time, verbally making
sounds to let you know something is on her mind! She is fairly calm,
not showing herding or nipping instincts. Nana is good with cats and
is fantastic with kids and loves being with them, not minding their chaos,
in fact, loving it! Nanna is such a loving, friendly dog that she would
make a wonderful therapy dog...she doesn't jump up on people; is very
calm; eager to say hello to everyone; and happy to be sitting with you for
hours on end! Nana was a stray taken in for three weeks by
a caring animal lover who then gave her to rescue. Nanna
is being fostered in Ct.
Katie found her forever home with one of the first dogs adopted
from our rescue efforts in 1999 in Ct, Maggie - the two of them absolutely
hit it off, wildly racing around the paddock acres, playing chase like two
lost friends. Katie finally found her match in speed! She now lives
in Massachusetts where she'll also be hiking the White Mountains every
KATIE: A 1 year
old border collie (maybe mix) Katie is playful, friendly and eager to be
with people. She is very very sweet and responsive and would love
companionship. She needs the activity another young dog provides
since she's full of energy and loves to race. Katie is very fast and
gorgeous to watch. She is good with most cats and good with all
dogs, a little on the submissive side so fits in beautifully. Katie
absolutely loves the water, dunking her head in, splashing and playing and
of course, loves to retrieve balls, too. Katie
is about 40 pounds and has had her long rough coat shaved for the summer
so she looks a little different now than when it grows out. Katie
was relinquished in Rhode Island due to a move. She was taken at the
Farm because the other bc rescue in her area of New England was full.
found his forever home on 40 acres of beautiful countryside with another
furry friend and loving guardians, one who works from home and will
make Tanner a real participant in every activity 24/7..just what he
wanted! Tanner now lives in upstate NY.
stunning 2 year old red & white Border Collie mix, Tanner has the most
wonderful blue eyes and calm manner, very happy to be by your side
endlessly, clearly bonding for human companionship. He gets along
very well with other dogs but connects with people instantly. He is
a very very smart dog, observing everything around him at all times, eager
to participate in every activity. Tanner is not high energy, nor is
he exhibiting herding or nipping instincts. He really would be an
incredible companion, bonding deeply. He is very happy riding in the car,
sitting by your side or just being with you and would be happiest with
someone who takes him everywhere or wants an interactive relationship.
While fine with other dogs, he'd be fine as the solo dog. Tanner
knows sit, gives his paw and is good on leash. He is about 35 pounds and
is not good with cats.
Very agile, he will need invisible fencing as he is able to crawl over 5
foot fences easily. Tanner was a stray in a shelter.
& NESSIE: These two found their forever home together where they
met at the Farm, ironically rooming together from the first day of
arrival. Now, they will be cross country skiing together, hiking and
enjoying life in upstate NY with their new guardians who absolutely fell
in love with them!
NESSIE: A 4 year
old Border Collie with ABC papers, Nessie is a wonderful, friendly dog
eager to participate in any activity with you. She is very very
smart, alert and attentive to anyone around her. She enjoys being
with other dogs but would also be happy as the solo dog since she has not
been heavily socialized with other dogs. Nessie is a classic Border
Collie who benefits from mental stimulation and an emotional relationship.
She is about 35 pounds, fairly small. Nessie is not nipping or
herding and is good with cats. Nessie was relinquished due to
an inability to meet her needs.
JAG: A 3 year old
purebred Border Collie, Jag is a sweet-natured, loving dog who wants to
connect with people. He is very observant and smart, watching
everything around him. Happy to sit next to you for belly rubs, Jag
is relearning how to trust and play so can be a bit reserved. Once he is
secure, he gives you his heart. He is not showing signs of herding
or nipping but does like to play ball! Jag is about 35 pounds, not
yet tested on cats. Jag was given up to a lifestyle change.
Gordon found his forever home herding geese with his new guardian
as well as playing frisbee, of course! Gordon will happily enjoy his
new furry friend as well as a life of play and work. Gordon now
lives in New Jersey.
stunning 3 year old purebred with papers, Gordon is from working lineage
and has the classic border collie 'eye' but he's happy to play ball
non-stop instead. Gordon loves to play frisbee - fast, accurate and
focused! He is very friendly with everyone, a people
focused border collie and would be happiest with an interactive
relationship, actively playing dog sports. He is good with other
dogs as he lived with another dog. Gordon loves to run and needs
space to do so. He is very responsive to people so could easily be
trained. He is good with cats, just tries to herd them but won't
harm them. Gordon is approximately 58 pounds, on the large size.
Gordon was given up due to lack of time for him
Sky (aka Broc) found his forever home when his new guardian dreamt about him!
Oddly enough, a few people dreamt about Sky so obviously he was tuning
into where he wanted to go. So, it was clear upon meeting at the Farm,
that his new person had arrived. A bit magical with dogs playing with ease
and he and his new person very much connected at the heart. A clear bond!
Sky will now live where he can run and play in New Hampshire on 136
acres, (a woodland area) and a 9 acre home area plus another 180 acres in
NY at their Retreat and Earth Awareness Center, Rune Hill, a personal
growth facility. Odds are that Sky will be doing therapy work, too.
BROC: A stunning 2 year
old purebred Border Collie, Broc is incredibly friendly with everyone he
meets. He is a real lover, affectionate and eager to be with people.
Broc is very good with other dogs, loves to run and race around the farm
with all the dogs, easily mixing in with them. He is very bright,
alert and responsive. Besides his good natured temperament, he is
gorgeous in person with one blue eye and one brown. He is not showing
heavy herding instincts or nipping. Broc is really very easy going
and playful. He is about 40 pounds, typical in size for the breed
and good with cats.
Broc was a stray surrendered in the night deposit box of a shelter.
found his forever home with guardians who fell in love when they met him!
Their two dogs fit in beautifully as they raced around and played and they
knew Cooper was the perfect compliment to their life. Committed dog
lovers, Cooper new lives happily in Rhode Island.
COOPER: A 10
month Border Collie, Cooper is a very fun, playful, ready to go pup, eager
to connect with people as well as dogs. He is affectionate,
very friendly and well-adjusted though he is very active so needs another
young dog for play or a very active life. He would also be better with
older children since he is so enthusiastic. He is quite focused, can jump
straight into the air, loves toys and could be great at agility.
Cooper is about 35 pounds, typical in size. He has not yet been
tested on cats. Cooper was relinquished due to his energy
found his forever home with another Border Collie where they
will enjoy daily play on the backyard agility equipment as well as
competition twice a week. He'll also get a chance to try herding once a
week which is perfect for his high energy, focused nature. Hudson and
their dog, Oisin, instantly became fast friends, playing like crazy!
Oisin came to Camp Border Collie and Friends this summer as the only dog
and of course, now, has a favorite friend for lots of play so maybe we;ll
see them again next summer, together! Hudson now lives in NY.
HUDSON: An 8 month old
Border Collie, Hudson is full of life, very high energy and loves to play,
especially with other young dogs. He also is extremely friendly and
eager to connect, happy to cuddle and be the focus of attention.
Hudson is also very agile and athletic so needs an active outlet for his
energy. He would also be best with older children since he is so
enthusiastic. Hudson is about 35 pounds, typical in size. He
is good with cats. Hudson was relinquished due
to relocation moves.
found his forever home with another dog, Casey, adopted from us in CT, one
of the first when we started rescue! Watching Mason choose Casey was a
fascinating experience in dog chemistry...he followed her everywhere,
literally obsessed with her every move and once outside, she reciprocated
her interest, racing around the farm to play! Both ball and frisbee
maniacs, they'll now happily be busy together living in Massachusetts.
MASON: A 3 year old
Border Collie/Aussie, Mason is a frisbee/ball maniac, happily wagging his
tiny tail with delight! He is also very very fast, catches almost
everything thrown to him and obediently drops his catch right at your
feet, eager to go again! Mason is affectionate and sweet, quite
gentle and eager to be with people. He has been the solo dog so is
just starting to get comfortable socializing with more dogs since he is
submissive and a bit intimidated at first. He would be happiest in a
home where sport activities are the focus and he could live alone or with
another submissive dog. Mason is about 40 pounds with a lean border
collie body rather than the stockier aussie build. Mason was
relinquished due to a change in the family's health.
great Gillis, as we call him, found his forever home over the
thanksgiving holiday and we're thankful he did! He now lives with a 7 year
old border collie named Captain Max who seems delighted to share his
people with Gillis. And, the loving Gillis found a warm lap for cuddling
and seemed to settle in choosing his new home instantly. We adore this
little character and wish him well, bringing chuckles to all he meets!
Gillis now lives in New Jersey, no longer abandoned in Brooklyn!
GILLIS: A 4-month
old tri-color Border Collie mix, little Gillis is a rowdy, fun-loving, high energy
boy, ready to play at any moment. He is very confident, even at such a
young age and mischievous, of course, like any puppy. He will be best with
another dog for his friend as well as a lot of activity. He is great with
other dogs, fearless with any that he meets and LOVES to play.
Gillis is very bright, responsive and already knows sit and is
housetrained. He is about 20 pounds, rather large now so likely to
be a good sized dog, probably bigger than typical border collie size.
Gillis was surrendered to a shelter before coming into rescue.
