Comical, sweet Paige
found her forever home with adopters who got their first dog five years
ago from us and really wanted another great addition to the family. They
just fell in love with Paige and she with them so off she's gone to enjoy
a life of adoration, lots of play and never having to worry about being
chained out again. We are so happy for Paige who healed her trust issues
and chose a loving life with people who really care. Paige now lives in
CT. Jade is home waiting for Paige to arrive.
PAIGE: A petite 2 year old Border Collie mix, Paige is a character.
She has a comical personality and loves to be in the middle of activities. She is very alert and observant. She can be a bit shy and
nervous in first meetings but once she decides 'all is well', then that's how it is forever. She is a small girl and very agile, happily
jumping onto a chair or anything to get attention. Her whole body wiggles when she is happy. Paige is fine with other dogs and likes the
activity but could also be happy as the only dog. She is good with cats. She is about 30 pounds. Paige will blossom best in a
home with people who understand dogs since she needs some time to feel secure. She came from a situation where she had been tied out so
wasn't given opportunities to meet and greet everyone normally. She has done well at the farm and is learning that life is good!
Paige came from a shelter in Perth Amboy, NJ, where she had been surrendered with her
puppies, all delivered while still on the chain. Paige is currently in a foster home
in CT, has been trained on the invisible fence and can be
seen at the Farm
We have adopted "Lucky"
from Chris in NJ. We found him on your web site. It was love at
first sight! We have no concerns over his "handicap" of
losing a leg. Already he responds to his new name "Trey";
is spunky around other dog friends; is comfortable in his kennel at night;
sits on command and runs like the wind. As you can see from the picture we
are as happy as can be. We are making a donation to your farm in
honor of Chris and the others in NJ and PA who "rescued" him.
Our thanks to you and them for the new addition to our family. Lucky now
lives in Binghamton NY
LUCKY: Little Lucky is
lucky with an angel looking over his shoulder. At 5 months old, he was
recently run over by a four wheeler, taken to the vet by the family who
thought he was dead and carelessly had no interest in saving him. The vet
felt otherwise cause this pup is sweet and brilliant with a wonderful
spirit. Even with one leg gone, he has unbounded energy to do everything,
meet everyone and basically enjoy life as a very happy go lucky Border
Collie. Lucky bonds with people very quickly and loves to put his head
right in your lap. He hops around very well and is learning to do stairs
quickly (3-4 he's fine with but a whole flight is too much for him right
now since he's still supposed to have his exercise restricted) . He rides
very well in the car crated and is crate trained inside. His stitches come
out at the end of August and he'll be ready for a loving home. Lucky
is in Mount Olive Township, NJ in a foster home temporarily.
Good natured and fun loving Pyke and
Leea found a great family who loved their puppy playing and knew that having these two
would be a blast! They will have lots of fun playing ball, racing around and of course, getting lots of hugs! Pyke and Leea now live in
central NY, never to worry again about wandering on the streets.
LEEA: A 1 year old Border
Collie, Leea is all action and would absolutely excel in any sport. She
is attentive, focused and eager to play and wants very much to be with
someone to play with her. She bonds quickly and is sweet and good
natured about everyone and everything. Leea loves other dogs and would
benefit from a dog friend as an outlet for her energy. She has not yet
been tested on cats. She is about 40 pounds, typical in size for the
breed. Leea was a stray in PA.
Sweet Chelsea found the
most wonderful home with two little girls who just loved this sweet pup
exactly like she likes it...lots of hugs, attention and play. Chelsea sat
right down next to them clearly picking her people. She'll have a great
time, cuddling, playing, camping and hiking, getting to go everywhere! A
real love bug, she won them over right away and will always count on lots
of love and caring, never scrounging again for food or shelter. Chelsea in
CHELSEA: An adorable 8 month old Border
Collie, Chelsea is very very playful and needs an outlet for her mind and
body. She is friendly and fun and loves attention. A high energy girl, she
would be happiest with another young dog for lots of play. She is smart,
eager to please and loves people. She is not showing any herding instinct
and is more focused on toys and racing around. Chelsea is a young pup,
already housetrained and very responsive to training. She is typical in
size for the breed, about 30 pounds now. She is good with cats. Chelsea was a stray in Watertown
Gorgeous Molly found
her forever home where she'll have plenty of play time with other dogs as
well as a real focus on agility day in and day out. She decided that dog
play is already her big favorite. Molly now lives in NJ.
MOLLY is a beautiful
petite border collie who is about a year and half old. She loves human
interaction and has incredible athletic ability. She loves to play ball -
anyone who has read about border collies that are obsessive about ball
play, Molly should be the poster child! She is also very talented at
Frisbee play. This girl given the right training should be competition
bound. She's sweet and loving and has the most soulful eyes you could ever
want for. She would probably be better off as an only dog, although having
dog friends and visitors would be a good thing. She loves the interaction
but likes her one on one time with her human(s). She's wonderful with
children, not a mean bone in her body. She is ALL border collie - constantly
on the go - and is looking for someone to share in her joie de vivre! Contact
the Farm for more information on Molly.
Millie found a new home and a new name, Dottie, when she won
everyone over with her soccer antics and charming personality, just tickled to have lots of people to play with and lots of attention. A
real character full of comical antics, Dottie will now never have to worry about being a stray because
she's found a family who adores her.
Millie/Dottie now lives in CT.
MILLIE: A 5 year old Border Collie,
Millie is a pretty tri-color Border Collie, Millie is a very easy going
girl, very content to be around people or in the middle of action with
lots of dogs. She is smart, alert and involved in everything around her
but she is also fine just relaxing next to someone who gives her
attention. Millie absolutely goes wild for soccer balls and will happily
race after them for a serious game of retrieval. She also loves to catch
the water from the hose, like most border collies who have a strong eye
for things that move - she makes you chuckle with her focus! Millie is a bit overweight but will quickly loose that here at
the Farm where she is active. Millie is not a tall border collie, she is
more typical in size for females. She is not good with cats. Millie
was a stray given to the farm from a PA shelter. She was found playing
frisbee on the beach with a group of kids!
Pyke went home with Leea.
See picture and story above.
PYKE: An 10 month old Border Collie mix,
Pyke is a ball of fun. He is very very friendly, happy go lucky and just
loves to play with people or dogs. He loves a game of chase with another
dog and happily entertains himself for hours. Pyke is active since he is a
puppy but not overly intense like a purebred so would be a great family
dog. He is in the Camp Border Collie for Kids program now learning
obedience and agility and doing beautifully. Pyke would be happy with
another dog friend or in an active home. He is about 40 pounds and is good
with cats. Pyke was a stray in the Watertown NY area due to be
destroyed due to space.
|Great Gil found his
forever home with another dog from the farm, Chelsea and a loving family
who just adore the breed and wanted two for the joy of play and fun. Gil

they are the cutest creatures alive! Gil now lives in upstate NY.

perfect home with two other dogs from the farm, Bandit & Pyke, and
loving guardians who just fell in love with her. She was totally curious
about them and happy to be in their arms cuddling. Gem will enjoy 100
acres of land at the horse farm where they live and work so will happily
explore the great outdoors and always have a warm loving home, too. GEM
now is called Lillie and lives in New Hampshire.

her forever home with another Border Collie previously adopted from the
farm, Tag. She quickly found her way into the hearts of her new
guardians with her sweet request for belly rubs and gentle good nature
of lots of cuddles. Little Gayle will have a life of Border Collie
heaven, with lots of toys, running and playing. She now lives in New
Hampshire and will also have a warm bed and wonderful hearts who adore
Sweet Lukie found his
forever home with another Border Collie who happened to be the sibling to
Charley and the daughter of Kelly recently surrendered to the Farm (from
the same litter in CT). Lukie and Lucy instantly had a great bond, both a
bit shy at first and gentle sweet dogs. It was clearly a wonderful duo to
put together. Lukie now lives in Ct and will be forever loved.
LUKIE: A striking 1
1/2 year old tri-color Border Collie, Lukie is a
sweetheart, very interested in everything around him. He is affectionate and loves attention though he can be very shy with men so
will need patient guardians who understand how to build his confidence. Lukie is interested in toys and very playful. He is good with other
dogs and likes to be with people. A real sweet natured Border Collie, Lukie will be a terrific companion. Lukie is about 35 pounds and
would be best with cats that are used to dogs He was relinquished to the Farm due to his guardian's heart attack which caused all the animals to be given up due
to a move. Lukie is currently in a foster home in CT and can be
seen at the Farm
RY has a new home!! We
are so excited for Ry because he is going to a great home with a friend of
the Farm who has volunteered here numerous times and just fell in love
with him. Her two border collies, Rylee and Meg, also thought he was the
most fun of any dog here and continually played and played. Little Ry is
ready for his new life with a loving, caring guardian who will guide him
through the next development to an even happier dog. Ry will never have to
worry again that he will be left alone, unwanted, literally out in the
cold. Ry now lives in Massachusetts.
A 1 yr old Border Collie, Ry is a very intelligent dog who is curious
about everything. He is also adorable, a real character - he even likes to
sleep on his back with his legs up in the air! He is very alert and resourceful, happy to check out anything and
everything. He is interested in all activities though still a bit shy around people, especially new people. He will need a patient guardian
to continue building his confidence and trust. He knows sit and kennel-up and is learning to walk on a loose leash. Ry is a typically
active young pup so will do best with another dog or two plus he is most comfortable with other dogs around. Since Ry came from a
situation without a lot of human contact, he will need understanding and patience without expectations so would do best in an adult home.
He is typical in size for a pup. He is not good with cats. Ry came
from a collector in PA where all the dogs were confiscated by the SPCA.
Daring Decker found
his forever home with guardians who love agility and thought Decker's toy

Collie who is very playful, absolutely loves toys and is friendly with
everyone he meets. With beautiful markings, he is striking. He may have
been born with the shorter tail, like some of the dogs who have come into
rescue. Decker is a happy guy who likes to join in any activity and loves
to play with other dogs. He is very smart and responds quickly to
interacting with people so could easily excel in flyball or agility or any
other fun activity. Decker is great in the car and is good with
cats. He is typical in size for the breed, about 40 pounds. He
was a stray in upstate NY given to the farm from the animal control
officer who contacted us who felt this great dog really deserved a chance
to find his home.
||Bear found his forever
home with a wonderful family who fell in love with him at an agility trial
and felt he would fit perfectly with their other border collie, Mic. Bear
now has forever love and caring and lives in Buffalo.
is a 1 1/2 yr. old border collie who gets along w/ children, cats and
other dogs. Bear had to be tied outside, due to allergies in the family, and they knew he deserved
will thrive w/ a family that is patient with him, giving him time to feel
that he belongs. Obedience and/or agility training would be great
confidence boosters. He was reluctantly given up by his family in
NY due to allergies. He is being fostered in Buffalo,
NY and gets along w/ the other dogs
there and is enjoying being part of a family again and living inside.
He can be seen in Buffalo or at the Farm.

to do. Roy won their hearts with his sweet nature while they were volunteering at the Farm this weekend. Roy will get to try agility
along with Cosmo who loves the sport. Roy now lives happily in NJ.
Thanksgiving cheer came to the
farm today when Tibbs
and Lass were
adopted together! We are so incredibly happy that such
wonderful guardians came with the idea that having older dogs was the
perfect fit for their lives and that these special two dogs could live
together, loved forever....As they said, "we are older so we want
older dogs and we love having ready made companions and giving dogs a
home that really deserve it". They thought these two were
absolutely adorable. Both Lass and Tibbs, much like a married couple,
play around each other, checking out who has what and yet happy to be on
their own, in the spotlight.
We are so thankful for kind
people who open their hearts and make room in their lives for older
dogs. Lass and Tibbs will be living in upstate NY on their very own 6
1/2 acre farm. A special thanks to Meg Ramsay for planting the seeds to
help this be a reality.
Lass went home with Tibbs

LASS: An athletic,
petite 7 1/2 year old Border Collie, Lass is a classic Border Collie,
ready to play and race after anything thrown to retrieve, be it frisbees
or balls. She is very agile and super fast, using her border collie 'eye'
to wait for just the right moment to burst with energy chasing after a
toy. She is a delight to watch! Lass is very sweet, a bit shy (except with
toys) and is great with other dogs and cats. Lass is most comfortable
around adults as she becomes nervous around young children and wants to
hide. She is about 35 pounds. She
was relinquished from a local breeder.
