found her forever home where she'll get to work everyday, chasing geese,
happily giving her lots to do with her focused mind and energetic body!
Lunna loves to swim so will surely be in the water too, having the time of
her life, getting to do what she was bred to do! Lunna now lives in NJ
with her new guardian and her shepherd friend, Lady.
LUNNA: A lovely 3 year old border collie, Lunna is very very smart and
likes to engage with people. She is friendly, affectionate and even has
a big grin when she sees you each day...very very cute! Classically
border collie, she needs something to do so will be best in an active
home. Lunna lived with another dog and is good with other dogs
(especially males) but could easily
be a solo dog. She is eager to please and is trained in basic obedience. She is typical in size for a border collie, about 45
pounds. She is good with cats and will need regular fencing.
Lunna has been well-loved in Rhinebeck, NY, but was relinquished to the farm because they felt she needed something more to stimulate her mentally and physically than they could
"Skye walked into our home and into our hearts, it
is like she has been here with Shadow from day one. Never missing a beat.
I am telling you if someone was to see our two girls they would never know
that they weren't sisters or that they didn't come into our house at the
same time. They are so much fun to watch out in the yard, Shadow loves her
to death, and Skye is a very loving content girl. "
Syke (aka Angie) quickly found her new home in a surprise fit when
the adopters of Bandit returned hoping to find a better match for their
dog, size-wise (Bandit was just too overpowering physically for their
petite bc) Well, Skye and Shadow were like two peas in a pod, racing,
playing, exactly timed for the same interests and focus...balls, balls,
balls...a wonderful pair, now together happily in MA.
ANGIE: A 7 month old Border Collie,
Angie is not only stunning and sweet, she is a live wire, full of border
collie energy. She has everything that makes the breed magnificent and
also a challenge....she is fast, she has herding interest and she
absolutely loves toys. She is a ball nut! She shows no nipping tendencies,
typical of the breed. Angie is a blast, eager to do anything with people
at any time and gets along well with other dogs. She'll need another young
border collie to work off her energy and a committed bc person who
understands the breed. While Angie is high energy, she is also very very
affectionate and people oriented. She is okay with cats but will herd
them, not hurt them. Angie is typical in size for her age, about 30
pounds. Angie was given up to a PA shelter due to her energy
found his forever home with Polo/Rio when Rio's new guardians saw him on
the site and just had to meet him. It was a match made in heaven, a true
connection and both Gully and Rio clearly wanted to go to California. We
made this exception out of the northeast since we knew the adopters from
the week at camp and were confident that these dog lovers would adore
these two. So, Gully now lives in central CA with his own pond and five
acres plus some other fur buddies to play! And, like any good dog lover,
one of the guardians flew to get them and the dogs are being driven cross
the country to go home! We know Gulliver would love this adventure!
GULLIVER: A 4- 5 year old beautiful
golden retriever/belgian terv mix (we guess) found his way to the farm
when a neighbor called about two dogs wandering nearby. Gulliver and his
pal, a purebred GSD came right up to the car and hopped in, happy to have
a friend. The Shepherd went to rescue and Gulliver stayed at the farm
because frankly, we fell in love with him and want to know where he goes
for the rest of his life. He spent two weeks meeting all the campers,
happily mixing in with all the dogs and people and not a moment of trouble
or worries. He is very very friendly, very very smart and bonds instantly.
Gulliver wants a person to love him for sure and will gladly enjoy lots of
attention. He is a very easy going guy, can play ball or lay around
at your side. Gulliver is great on leash and even great off leash, never
loosing sight of his person (in this case, Lillie) He's about 55 - 60
pounds, as tall as a shepherd and as a gentle as a golden retriever. He is
good with cats and would be
happiest with lots of space to run and variety - to meet people and go
places. He's a wonderfully wise dog with a big heart and could even be a
great therapy dog.
Hart and Luckie not only roomed together at the Farm, but
they'll get to live together! They both found their forever home with
border collie lovers who thought Luckie was 'just perfect' with all his
wound-up ball focus and Hart was the sweetest, most gentle girl
imaginable...a wonderful pair and since they already liked each other, a
wonderful addition to their family! Hart and Luckie now live in upstate
HART: A beautiful, petite 10 month old
Border Collie, Hart is a delight, brilliant, fast and focused. She is also
very gentle, responsive to positive attention and settles beautifully. She
is not high strung though she is active and energetic, typical of her age.
Her size and focus would make her great at flyball or agility. Hart bonds
very quickly and wants to please and will blossom in an active home. She
is great with other dogs though could be a solo dog, too. She is good wtih
cats. Hart is 30 pounds, small and petite. She and
her brother were relinquished to the farm from Long Island because they
were not what the guardian wanted and he planned to dump them at the
LUCKIE: A 9 month old
Border Collie, Luckie is a fun loving, sweet guy eager to play and be in
the middle of everything. He is easy going, very people oriented and
really wants to be in an interactive relationship as a companion. He is
great with other dogs and also good with cats. Luckie will be happiest
with another young dog for play since he loves to make up games and race
and run. He is not showing heavy herding tendencies, mostly just energetic
playful interests typical of young border collies. Luckie loves to
play with toys and will happily bring a ball back so you can throw it
again and again and again! Luckie is about 40
pounds, full grown and about average in size. Luckie was given up
due to his energy levels and relinquished from Albany, NY
Bandit found his forever home with former adopters who wanted a
second GREAT dog (they adopted Spryte, Jr, now Pyke from the farm) and
felt Bandit fit the bill perfectly...a real focused border collie but a
big puppy full of energy to play with Pyke...it was a fantastic match,
insuring that Bandit will happily enjoy his new life in New Hampshire on
100 acres with his own pond!!
11 month old Border Collie with papers, Bandit is a fun, people oriented
dog. he wants to relate quickly and just loves to play. He is great with
other dogs and will happily wrestle and run and play for hours, so would
be happiest with another dog for play. He loves to learn and be mentally
stimulated and he will do best with someone interested in an interactive,
involved relationship. Bandit is eager to please and learn. He is not
showing heavy herding instincts. He is about 50 pounds so a bit larger
than average so will be best with another dog who is his size. Bandit is
good with cats. Bandit was relinquished in Buffalo NY because his
guardian had no time for him.
found his forever home with the adopters who recently lost Prince, adopted
from the farm. When they started looking for a new companion, they thought
Scottie was the right one, but his energy was too much in their home so
next came Champ who fit perfectly, actually quite similar personality to
Prince who also came from a farm situation. We are so thrilled for Champ
and his new family - we know he will be adored! Champ now lives in MA.
CHAMP: A 4 year old Border Collie
(maybe a little mix), Champ is a friendly, happy go lucky dog, interested
in being with people and being part of everything going on around him. He
is not hyperactive like a young dog, but happy to be with people joining
in activities. Champ is about 55 pounds, good with cats and mixes with
other dogs well. He could also be happy as the solo dog. We have
temperament tested Champ and feel he would be happiest with older children
and in a loving home where someone is around during the day. Champ's
former guardian was heavy handed with him and had planned to shoot him
because he didn't want him anymore. Champ is in the Herkimer County Humane Society,

incredible, good natured Logan found his forever home with a loving
family who first met him at summer camp, vacationing with their two border
collies. Watching him month after month on the site, waiting for his
home, made them decide they wanted their home to be his home. "Well,
we can't imagine what life would be like without Logan" his
new furmom says and so it goes...Logan's new fur dad is completely patient
with low expectations of what will work and yet, amazingly, it's working
beautifully. Logan is less skittish with his new furdad then he's ever
been...a match made in heaven all around. Logan now lives in New
Jersey in a place that understands his quirks and loves him no matter
what. We are very thankful for the kind hearts of Dee and Joe Hines who
reached out to open their home to a wonderful dog with special needs.
A 2 1/2 year old Border Collie mix, Logan is gorgeous,
friendly, wants to play and is very easy going!. He is very eager to
connect with a person but also cautious and shy with strangers so will
benefit from a patient, gentle approach that allows him to build his trust
first. Logan is very smart, observant of everything all the time and
loves to engage with toys and also other dogs. He would be happiest with
another young dog to race around with. He would also be best in a
home without children since he is a little bit nervous of commotion.
Logan will be
placed in a quieter home with predominantly female guardians and another
dog. He is not showing any herding tendencies but is a bit mouthy when excited,
much like dog play. Logan is good with cats but may chase when the
cat runs, like most border collies Logan was previously at
Best Friends in Kanab Utah, relinquished due to lack of time.
like Scottie finally found the home of homes! He has a wonderful
family with two kids who love border collies and new guardians who love
him! After tragically loosing their border collie, they were so
grateful to find another wonderful one to join their lives and Scottie
caught their attention on the site right away! So, of course, meeting him
just confirmed he was most definitely the one! And Scottie certainly
felt the same way, cuddling and playing like he'd been with them
forever. Scottie now lives in central NY and will be forever loved.
SCOTTIE A 7 year old Border Collie
(possibly mix), Scottie is a delight, very very friendly with everyone.
The day he arrived at the farm, he entered the gate, joining 13 dogs as if
he had known them his whole life and then proceeded to say hello to
numerous visitors who were at the farm. He is very secure and very
balanced, enjoying people and curious about everything going on around
him. Scottie does not have heavy border collie instincts of herding or
nipping, instead he is easy going and playful, loves belly rubs and being
next to people. He is a bit camera shy so his gorgeous eyes are hard to
see and his beautiful prance just cannot be captured. Scottie is
about 45 pounds, typical in size and is good with cats. Scottie was
relinquished to a Pittsburgh PA shelter when his family wanted him to have
a bigger yard.
Grace found her forever home just a month shy of being at the farm
with her pups (last xmas) so we are so happy for her and for her new
guardians who really wanted to bring a sweet border collie into their
lives. Grace now has her own yard to patrol, a soft comfy bed to rest on
and lots of fun ahead with two loving humans and their talkative bird,
Flyer, who Grace think is just fine! Grace now lives in New Jersey and
will always be near and dear to our hearts and many of those who have met
her! (Picture coming soon!)
Gorgeous Grace is a petite 9 year old purebred with lots of spunk!
Though she lost her puppies, Ben & Shep, she is full of charm and love
for everyone she meets. She is an adorable, friendly happy go lucky
girl, very content to be with you. While she enjoys hanging out on
the couch, she's also got a love for herding a bit which means she runs
the perimeter, working to make sure everything is in order, a classic
border collie trait. She is a supervisor by nature and wants to turn
chaos into calm. We just love her good nature and sweet ways and
feel she would be an incredible companion. Grace would be happiest
as the solo dog as she doesn't really love other dogs that much but sure
loves people. Grace is good with cats. Grace
came from a West Virginia shelter where she birthed two pups that came
with her to the Farm.
found his forever home with a loving family and a young girl he
immediately adored, eager to follow her everywhere! Plus Ollie will have
three furry friends (not pictured) two shelties and a corgi who he fit
with just fine, a happy gang of furbuds eager to be involved in
everything. Ollie now lives in central NY.
OLLIE: A 3
1/2 year old Border Collie, Ollie is a fun-loving boy who wants to play
ball and race around with other dogs. He’s very fast, agile and up
for any games. Ollie is eager to connect with people, sharing his
sweet nature. He is very gentle, obedient and eager to please. He loves an
interactive relationship with people. Ollie will be placed in an
adult home or with teenage children. He is about 40 pounds.
Ollie is not good with cats. Ollie
was relinquished to the Farm because he was living as the solo dog and his
guardian felt he needed more activities that another dog could provide.
DILLON: An 10 month old purebred, Dillon is a
lovebug, very very happy
to be with people and ready for hugs all the time. He is truly people oriented and very friendly to everyone. He is also good with other
dogs and likes to play though would be best with a young dog since he's
only a pup. Dillon is very responsive and smart, wanting to engage and
interact though not showing heavy border collie traits of intensity.
He would be happiest in an active home with lots of attention. He is
about 45 pounds and we believe full grown. He is good with cats. Dillon was relinquished to the Peru, NY shelter for having
too much energy.
Buddy and daring Dillon found a great home together with two
other furry friends so they can explore a new life of playing, running and
chasing the ball in the yard while being adored! Buddy clearly chose his
new furdad, sitting by his side quietly acknowledging a new companion and
Dillon of course, won their hearts with his sweet good natured and
humorous ways! Their new guardians came to adopt one dog and after meeting
these two, felt they both needed to join their lives and couldn't imagine
leaving one behind! Buddy and Dillon now live in upstate NY.
BUDDY: A beautiful 6 year old Border
Collie/Aussie (bred intentionally with both breeds), Buddy is a
sweetheart, very very friendly and happy to be with people. He is
responsive to people, loves touching and hugs and has basic obedience
training. He also loves to play ball, retrieving and gently dropping the
ball at your feet. He is good with children, loves to run and play, as
well as play 'hose', trying to catch the water He is good with other dogs
so could live with a furry friend, too and seems to have an affinity for
females. He is not good with cats. Buddy is about 55 pounds and loves
playing in water and will happily jump into the washtubs at the farm and
probably into creeks or lakes, given the chance. Buddy
has lived in one home since a puppy and was given up in Newburgh NY due to lack of time
Pegi found her forever home with another young Border Collie,
Dillon who is a perfect match for continual play! They race and tumble and
wrestle and chase balls like the best of buds. Pegi also has two kids of
her very own (not shown) to play ball and frisbee for hours on end and
she'll get to have fun with agility with the equipment in the backyard!
Pegi now lives happily in upstate NY, never to be in harm's way again,
living with loving guardians who adore the breed.
PEGI: An adorable 8 month old
Border Collie, Pegi is absolutely wonderful. She loves people, jumping
right into your lap for attention and she loves to play with other dogs.
She runs and races and even jumps in the water for fun, a natural swimmer.
She is already ball focused and eager to play! Pegi is very sweet and will
do best with someone who really wants a relationship where she can be with
them everywhere. Pegi is fine with cats and is typical in size for her
age, about 25 pounds. She does not have heavy herding instinct and would
be best as a companion. Pegi came to the farm from a shelter in PA.
found her new home with a relative of the family so she will fortunately
be safe forever.
MOLLIE: A sweet 8 year old purebred,
Mollie is a sweet, attentive Border Collie, very easily bonding to people.
She has lived with children and another Border Collie so gets along fine
in family life. She loves road trips in the car, and is used to
camping trips as well as lots of fetch. Mollie is good with cats. She
needs a new home through no fault of her own. Her current guardians just
moved east and had no luck renting a place that would take animals so had
to give up all their animals, including Mollie and another Border Collie. Mollie
is in her home in Rome NY, waiting for a space at the Farm.
