We are happy to announce that the fabulous CHESTER has found a home with former adopters and 3 canine pals including GHF alum Riley!

CHESTER'S new people first met him doing an intake evalation for GHF. He passed with flying colors so they offered to foster him until a spot opened up for him. Chester and his furdad had an instant connection and that bond grew as each day passed. They were continually impressed with Chester "an amazingly easy going and unfazed dog that has integrated nicely with everyone and has excelled in every situation we have put him in (vet, bath, going to a busy park, cars, other dogs, etc.) and that makes him tough to not love and to let go.” And the rest is history! We are so excited for Chester (he knows he hit the jackpot) and for his new life in NJ.

NANU, Age 12
• No cats

A 12 year old GHF alum, NANU found himself back in rescue when his guardians had to move south and couldn’t take him. He’s a very flexible Border Collie, happy to hang his hat where life is good AND full of ball play! Upon arrival back in rescue, he became totally absorbed with the red jolly ball and getting it to move as well as placing his favorite tennis ball exactly where he knew it HAD to be thrown. Let’s just say that life for Nanu is a ball!!!! He is also a very, very friendly, good-natured boy, exactly how he was back in 2014. Nanu co-exists beautifully with other dogs, happy to hang out but eagerly awaits his person doing that one thing that makes him happiest - throwing the ball!

Nanu was originally from a Humane Society confiscation in PA, then transferred to GHF where our intake person’s Mom temporarily fostered him, falling in love. Heartbroken to give him back, she felt it was best based on their life changes. She knew we would be sure he found a great place, again. Nanu is either 12 or 13, though truly acts more like an 8 yr old! He will chase and herd cats so is best in a non cat home. He came back to GHF pretty chunky so will trim up easily considering how active he is.

Nanu is in rescue at GHF in Virginia.

PARKER, Age 11
• Adult home
• Canine friends preferred
• Cats unknown

An 11 year old Border Collie, PARKER is a sweet, friendly, good-natured guy. He is an observant and thoughtful BC keeping track of all that goes on around him, wisely analyzing his new world in rescue but curious to check out his new canine pals. Parker loves other dogs and is clearly happy to meet them. He is reserved when meeting new people, and then becomes Mr. friendly once comfortable, pleased to have attention showered on him and happy to give his affection, too. He has plenty of commands he knows well and has also been clicker trained - he loves to work for treats! One favorite we’ve seen is ‘Want a Snug?’ and he comes right over to tuck in for snuggling!

He’s used to daily walks, meeting people and dogs and being a good diplomat wherever his former guardian took him. Due to her worsening health situation, she felt it was best to give him a chance for a new life with someone else so contacted GHF to help. We are happy that this nice boy landed with us and l in a new loving life. He is about 55 pounds and came to us from Maine where he lived since he was six. As a younger dog, he was part of a large confiscation of BCs and other animals from a bad breeding situation. Parker is not comfortable with the activity level of children and wants to avoid them so is best in an adult only home.

Parker is in rescue at GHF in New York.

Special thanks to Bea Hamm, Joan Beskenis, Lisa Barrett & Linda Whitman for transporting Parker to GHF.

• Solo dog preferred
• Fenced yard
• No cats

PATCHES: A 10 year old Border Collie, Patches has brought her wonderful smile to GHF, ready to share her friendly nature with everyone! She is a delightful, outgoing girl with plenty of energy to explore the world, side by side with a person she can call her own. She is quite sweet and also action oriented, very fit so would be a great hiking partner, following your every move. Patches is super responsive to people, so endearing to get to know. She and her sister, Tess, both landed at GHF due to changes in their guardian’s home situation. Patches is not great with cats or birds. She and her sister had friction between them, common to siblings so it’s time for Patches to be the center of someone’s focus so she can blossom. She is about 38 pounds.

Patches is in rescue at GHF in New York.

Shaye's Angels
• Cathy & Steve Bouck, Ziggy & GHF alum Lincoln, Also in memory of GHF alums Mika & Cassy
• Love, Nancy, Bob, Bea & GHF alum Zoe
• Michelle Ouellette & GHF alum, Telos

"How can I help?!" Shaye takes his office duties seriously and enthusiastically!

SHAYE, Age 10
• Solo dog preferred
• Fenced yard required

SHAYE is a 10 year old Border Collie mix, a classic focused ball boy who loves to play the game! He's fast and full of energy, a joyful guy for sure. Super friendly with every human he meets, he loves attention and loves to learn. Smart and attentive, he's a thinking dog up for any challenge - long walks, car rides, new toys, food puzzles, new situations - he's curious, confident and ready to go. We've made Shaye the 'office dog' as we continue understanding his skin allergies cause he's such a great greeter! He;s making great progress with the help of Dr. Julia Miller at Cornell but we're pretty sure he'll need medication year-round. He actually started out in even worse condition landing at a MD shelter in March when he was confiscated from his home. After making progress with his health and placing him in a new home, he was returned to the shelter, in poor shape again and the shelter put out a plea for rescue help. Shaye is about 45 pounds and is good with cats.

Shaye is in rescue at GHF in New York.

Someone in Shaye's former life taught him to get tennis balls from between your legs - AND bring them back there providing non-stop chuckles for all of us and great picture and video opportunities:

A quick snapshot of Tess arriving home after a long drive, about to start her new journey with a former GHF adopter who was so pleased to add another special Border Collie to her life!

The two of them will be together 24/7 getting to know each other as the months unfold, sharing all the love between canine and human, joining hearts together. We know these two will bond quickly and Tess will even have an opportunity to learn fun tricks cause her new FurMom loves to teach all kinds of activities to her furry pals. Highly food motivated, her new guardian got a chance to see what motivates her first-hand, on arrival: “She is very busy exploring everything and getting every crumb my vacuum missed!” We are so pleased for these two!!

Tip's Angels
• Scott Trapp
• Richard & Ingrid Durant, "For Tip, my long lost friend!"

Tip is the consummate Border Collie who would love to drive if he could, but navigating as co-pilot to be helpful to us humans is always good, too!

TIP, Age 12
• Solo dog preferred
• Fenced yard required

TIP age 12 (born 3/07) is one of those marvelous Border Collies who focuses fully on his person and knows their every move, so intuitive in connecting to the person he loves. His charming personality wins over everyone but it’s that very intimate bond with one person that is so soulful and meaningful. Tip is a true partner with all that means as a beloved canine friend. Tip has lost his hearing so is extra attentive to his person, watching all that you do in order to follow your lead. HE MUST HAVE A FENCED YARD.

Tip also loves the 'game'... balls, frisbees, hikes…the work of his mind and body, together. If someone is willing to send another ball toss his way, he is happy to bring it back for yet another. He has so much energy and spunk, Tip is a very vibrant 'youngster'! He will go nuts playing ball but then curl up on the couch as soon as you’re ready to stop, having a wonderful off-switch. Always eager to start the day and head out for the action, Tip loves it all! He is a magnificent boy with so much to offer someone who understands this breed and adores them.

He is about 40 pounds and good with cats. Tip comes from the herding lineage of Kuykendall breeders so has a strong nature to herd and control other dogs so will do best as a solo dog. He can be strong-minded meeting other dogs on leash so would be happiest with a nice yard to call his own without a lot of canine competition. Tip landed at GHF when his guardian went through a divorce. Tip lived in North Carolina.

Tip is in rescue at GHF in New York.

Tip just loves the water! Swimming, wading or splashing if there's water he'll have a go at it!
