The following border collies 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.
Glen Highland Farm volunteers have temperament tested those dogs displaying the GHF logo in their bio on the date indicated.  The evaluation and information provided is accurate, only as of that date.  All others are listed solely as a courtesy.

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.

His name Is Aaron here at the Shelter. https://www.facebook.com/122122364501442/videos/1453898097990522/

This lovable little guy came to us as a stray that no one ever came looking for. Poor Aaron was so shy at first but once he realized he was in good hands, he came out of his shell and never looked back. Aaron is only about a year old and this border collie mix is still shy when he meets new people, but just give him a minute to check you out and he'll soon start bouncing around, hoping that you'll play with him. Aaron has lots of puppyish energy and is always ready to have fun. He has had training in his young life and sits instantly when asked, takes treats very gently, and walks well on a leash. Aaron could use a little training with some mouthiness while playing, so he will need a home with no kids under 10. He is super sweet, bubbly and he's talkative too. He seems excited to meet other dogs and would likely be fine with dogs around his size. Aaron will bring lots of joy and fun to the family that welcomes him home. File#27063

Do you like to throw tennis balls? Because Reilly LOVES to chase tennis balls! Do you like to go for walks? Reilly LOVES to go for walks, and has been working on his leash manners and has become quite the gentleman to walk. Reilly also loves to chew on bones and go swimming. He is a real dog’s dog, kind of an old fashioned fellow who has spent most of his time outside but is now making the move to an indoor pampered pooch. Inside he is still figuring things out, sometimes he feels pent up or a little stressed and he will start to pace, but if someone can let him outside to blow off some steam, take him for a walk or play fetch he relaxes and goes back to being a big old goofball. Reilly is crate trained but would be happiest in a home where people are around more so he can be let outside to burn some energy as he gets used to being an inside dog. An active home that likes to hike and swim and throw tennis balls would make Reilly jump for joy! Reilly needs some time and understanding to help him transition, but we know when he settles he is going to reward a lucky family with a lot of love and fun. While Reilly is good with kids, he is still figuring out about the rules of the house and we think he would do best with kids who are 12 and up. Reilly is too interested in cats to live with them.

This is Kiff or Kiffy, a lover who pretends to be a fighter. At 1 1/2 he is the sweetest dog you'll ever meet and is quick to hop up in your lap for a cuddle or sleep curled up by your feet. Loves fetch so much it's almost a stereotype. He needs someone who can love him 25/8! The reason we have to put him up to rehome is that he needs a more available and experience trainer to bring out the best in him. Kiff has severe anxiety (for which he is medicated); he cannot be left alone and will not tolerate being in a crate for more than a few minutes. He is not aggressive, but lacks any semblance of self-control (y'know, like a dog). Kiff can tolerate well-mannered dogs with a slow introduction but cannot be trusted around small animals. So, cannot live with cats. While Kiff has never met a person he didn't like, he can get overexcited easily and so should not live in a home with children. Kiff has made progress with crate training, is fully house trained (he's never had an accident), walks well on a leash, and loves to go on hikes. Kiff will do best in an experienced home with someone who has plenty of time to spend working and playing with this wonderful pup. If you feel experienced enough to save this pup, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. We are willing to travel to meet prospective owners. More than anything, we want this dog to get into the forever home he deserves!
