YAY for DEXTER who is so deserving of a loving home!
He now has one with former GH adopters who made the haul south to meet this wonderful guy and make sure the dogs hit it off. After some walks outside, hanging in the airbnb a couple nights and even a night out for dinner where dogs are welcome…these two are pals and off he went to New Jersey.

He’ll be their constant companion, living with guardians who are totally devoted to this breed..he’s now their 9th Border Collie and the 4th from Glen Highland. They really wanted to take in an older one this time, knowing they could provide all that he would need. His tail was wagging pretty fast with them, happy to hop in the car and enjoy his new life!!




A 9 1/2 year old Border Collie, Dexter is a truly, nice guy. He is easy going and likes pretty much everyone, a classic good-natured BC for sure. He’s clearly been loved and is adjusting pretty well to such a big change, now hanging with the other Senior Rescues. He lost his home due to the unexpected death of his guardian. Dexter had the unfortunate situation of being in the home with his deceased person for 7 days followed by 10 days in a shelter until a friend stepped up to get him to safety and then to Glen Highland. We were so happy to see him galloping along upon arrival, checking out everything seemingly lifting the load he likely has felt. His ride to Glen Highland was an interesting snapshot of a thoughtful Border Collie ‘going with the flow’…watching the sights go by.

Dexter is finding the action of the herding gang quite interesting so just may change over time and his own BC traits will become more prominent as he relaxes. It’s easy to see his mind is working overtime as he acclimates with us. One sure thing is that Dexter really likes female Border Collies, even a bit flirty, very cute to see. He did live with a female non BC since a pup so can easily enjoy the companionship of another dog. He is trained on an invisible fence system and respected it. His previous home was fairly rural on 10 acres with 2 acres on the system. Dexter is NOT good with cats. Dexter came to us from Virginia.

Dexter is knocking off weight, really enjoying himself with other BC’s here at Glen Highland. We removed his oral mass which thankfully was benign so he is ready for adoption!
