|The following Border
Collies and BC mixes are available through other agencies or as independent
placements by owners. The adoption of the dogs
listed below will be handled by the individual home or shelter listed in
the dog's bio. Glen Highland Farm
is available to assist if needed. For more information about these
dogs, please use the contact information provided with each dog.
PLEASE BE AWARE that you need to check people out before handing
over your dog to someone you do not know. There are unscrupulous people
who appear to be good adopters so be cautious and check references,
especially asking for a neighbor's phone number so you can be sure that
the information about them is accurate. We recommend a TRANSFER
OF OWNERSHIP agreement so that you can have some written
agreement about your dog's future situation in the event it does not
work out for the person to keep the dog. It is important to insure that
your dog does not eventually land in a shelter where he or she could be
euthanized. Instead, the person agrees in writing to notify you so
that you can then step in and take an appropriate course of action.

HANK is a 2 y.o. Male, neutered Border Collie, is in need of a new home. He’s 45 pounds, tri-colored, and (in our opinion) extremely handsome. He loves running, car rides, and having his head scratched. He’s got lots of natural Border Collie energy and would make a great companion animal for someone with an active lifestyle. Our friends who do dog agility met him and say he would make a great agility competitor if someone invested in training him.
He gets along well with other dogs. He would probably not do well in a home with cats or small children. He goes into herding mode around kids he doesn't know: crouch position, vocalizing, nipping at heels – but he's never hurt anyone. We are expecting a baby around New Year’s Day 2020, which is why we’re seeking a new home for him. He is house trained and crate trained.
We’re asking for an adoption fee of $200 to cover his recent vaccination updates and to donate to the network that helps us find him a new home. Hank is currently living in Dummerston, Vermont.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more. In your email, please include something about your past experience with herding dog breeds. Thank you for considering our boy Hank!

HICKORY is 6 months old, ~35lbs. One blue eye, and our best guess is Border Collie, Cattle Dog, Kelpie, maybe even Basenji to add some unique flare. He was rescued from a hoarding situation and initially had a significant case of mange. His skin is doing excellent & almost 100% healed. Hickory is doing well on crate training; a little more reserved than his "brother" and actually for a herding breed type does not seem super high maintenance and could probably fit in most homes.
Our adoption fee is $375, he is neutered and up-to-date on everything. Website with application www.safeatlast.net
We are located in Schoharie County NY and do allow out-of-region adoptions but require meet & greet.

FINN is a 6 year old Border Collie, who loves everyone, the friendliest girl with anyone new and a super affectionate girl with her people. She loves to play frisbee and ball games plus car rides are her favorite, too. She is trained on an invisible fence. She has lived in one home all her life as the solo dog so best to continue that way. She is fine with other dogs outside but like many female BC’s, will control any who are inside her home. She is ok with cats, having living with one for a long time. Her guardians are retiring and want to travel so feel she needs a new situation.
