BE AN ANGEL FOR ONE OF THESE DOGS -Click here



    ORLA found a wonderful life with former GHF adopters who were ready to bring a puppy into their hearts. They had adored living and loving senior dog, Addie, til she passed, leaving their hearts full of love to give again. Pup Orla is going to be their focus 24/7 as she gets to learn all the activities that stimulate her mentally and physically, a hiking pal and a deep, beloved friend as well. She now lives in NJ.

           Our “puppy Foster Mom” has cared for all the unexpected pregnancies over a decade of volunteering for GHF. She and her husband open their hearts and home to bring them safely into the world and lovingly nurture them to be ready for their new lives. Once before, she knew one of the Mammas was meant to stay so she did and now, little pup OLEA spoke to her, heart to heart, and her home is now all set, staying right there. She’ll round out the pack to six, making it tons of fun for all!
               Little OLYMPIA with the big name, lived up to all that she showed from birth - great gusto for action! So, now she has joined a big pack and has a country life not far from the Farm with one of our Caretakers so we’ll get to see this mighty girl grow up around GHF each week! Within short order, she slid right into her new life, like the return visit that was forecast, reunited with her FurMom and FurDad who lost her way too early, not long ago. Welcome back little ‘big one’, joining GHF alums, Tuck, Raine & Lennon, plus her other canine pals she knows so well.

                   Little OLIVIA now known as LIV, joins GHF alum, LuLu for a great life with their FurDad who adores the breed. They join him at home at his work with plenty of acres for playing and even swimming. Lulu has become the company’s favorite girl but now Dad has not only his human daughter, he has three canine girls he cherishes (14 yr old Chewy couldn’t make the drive). We know Liv & LuLu will have a fabulous life, now living in NJ.



                  We are beyond ecstatic that Tes is going to remain in her foster home with one of our very favorite people! This pup will not only have a great life of BC antics, she will get a chance to show off all her brilliance in agility where her new FurMom excels! And, this is one pup who needed this active, action oriented life! A GHF adopter, we know the life this girl will grow into and it’s going to be great - though she took a breath to check with her husband to make sure adding her to the family was ok: Lillie, I have so fallen in love with this little girl. She has slid right into my pack with out even a ripple. I wanted her from the beginning, but didn't even dare think to add another. This morning I did, and my wonderful husband said: "Of course you can keep her!” We’re excited to see little Tes on GHF summer vacations, too!

TES: A 4 month old bc mix, Tes is a tiny power house. She is super confident, curious and extremely athletic. A natural fearless jumper, she flies off furniture as if it’s a ballet, classic BC balance. Finding enough activity for Tes is going to be a challenge since she truly is non-stop. Smart as a whip, a simple ‘lie down’ quietly said, lands her right on the ground, waiting for the next direction. And, seconds later, she is up and moving, all action! She loves toys of any kind and will engage with anyone eager to know her, super friendly and trusting. Tes will be a blast to train and a joy to partner with, in whatever activity. We feel she really needs an outlet for her energy, mind and focus so will consider sport homes as her best choice for the right life. Tes slid into the Founder’s home with 17 other adult dogs, befriending the younger dogs and quickly learning what the older dogs would allow or not. Sharp as can be, she is bold and beautiful to watch in action. Tes is a little smaller in size for her age but it’s hard to know her ultimate size since puppies this age have growth spurts that are hard to predict. We’ll update her bio with action shots soon! She is always in motion!!

 


Reilly Summary:
 -
BC friend required
 - BC savvy home required

    





Special thanks to Kym Hance & Jeff Beck who made sure he made it to GHF.

Reilly's Angels
-Steff & Jim DeBottis & GHF alums, Kip & Gracie
-Michael Opalinski & Tux, in memory of GHF alum Zach

REILLY: A 5 month old Border Collie, Reilly is a very good-natured, outgoing boy with a very sharp focus on toys for a pup his age. He loves every toy that he tries and has good coordination keeping up with the game, even with adult BC’s around. Reilly is a very, very smart BC, not for inexperienced adopters because he will test boundaries with great confidence, boldly sorting out what he wants to do or not do. He has quite an eye, already stalking the other BC’s and happy to be a part of herding games, circling, chasing and trading out toys. He would be happiest with another BC pal or two so will not be placed as a solo pup. Reilly is a cuddly, people oriented guy and he is clearly a thinker, really processing all the activity around him. He responds beautifully to positive encouragement, is very food oriented and loves to learn. Reilly had too much energy for his previous guardians and thankfully, landed at GHF. He is about 20 pounds, typical in size for his age




                   At 6 months old, TIG found his way to GHF, having spent 5 months in a bad breeding situation, then sold to an elderly couple in wheelchairs, with no fenced yard who tied him out…thankfully they realized the misfit and through the help of others, he found his way to safety at the Farm. Sweet as can be with the brightness of a happy soul coming out, this little guy is now set for life. He landed with former GHF adopters who have two BC’s from us, Banning & Rion, and now will give this fella exactly what he needs - tons to do, lots of fun and buddies just like him! They came to visit to add a younger BC and it was Tig who easily slid into the pack as if he’d lived with them all along - it was adorable to watch unfold. Tig now lives in PA.


Tessa Summary:
 
- fenced yard required
 - canine friends preferred

    




Special thanks to Liz Bush, Peg Fuller and Susan Monnelly who made it possible for Tessa to land at GHF

Tessa's Angels
-Marcy Levine

TESSA: A petite 10 month old Border Collie mix, Tessa is all action! She is some amazing athlete, jumping straight up with excitement to say hello - she would be fun to train to jump right into your arms or play frisbee! She is high energy for sure and will need an activity to occupy her interests. She loves toys of all kinds and is very coordinated and such a delight, full of joy. Tessa is great with other dogs and loves to play so could easily join a pack of one dog for a pal. She is extremely friendly and very good natured, happy to meet anyone and everyone. This very smart and focused girl, could be a great sports candidate for someone eager to shape her energy. Tessa was given up from a NY family with young children and two other dogs, just too much for them. She is good with cats and weighs 35 pounds. She requires a fenced yard.



Special thanks to Mary and Mike Beggs for fostering Tessa.


Rudy Summary:
 - canine friend required
 - NO cats
 - rural setting
 - fenced yard required

    




Rudy's Angels
-Dick & Maureen Ware; GHF alums Jem and Robby
RUDY: An 1 yr old Border Collie/Aussie, Rudy is all joyful fun, energy and enthusiasm for life! He is one happy boy with the desire to play, play, play. He loves other young herding dogs and plays endlessly, making up herding chase games that are really fun to see. He is a sweet boy who loves attention as much as he loves action. So, while you’re tossing his toys, he’s happy to have a quick cuddle, too. Rudy will be happiest with a canine pal and a guardian who is around a lot so he is not stuck inside all day. He would be a wonderful hiking partner. Eager to please and smart as can be, Rudy is a delightful young BC mix who bonds quickly and loyally. Rudy does have a strong habit of barking at novel things - sounds, people, dogs - whatever catches his attention so he will do better with less stimulation around, in a more rural setting. A savvy guardian can work on this behavior and likely improve it, but it seems to be part of his true nature. He is about 40 pounds and is not good with cats. He was originally placed as a puppy in a home where the guardian worked and he was crated more than he could handle so he returned to GHF.  He requires a fenced yard.



Milo Summary:
 -
bc friend required
 - fenced yard required
 - dog savvy cats OK
 - bc savvy guardian needed

    





Milo's Angel
-Karen Stoedter In memory of Amy

MILO: A 1 1/2 yr old Border Collie, Milo has really blossomed and is enjoying the bigger life he now has, with other canine herding friends and people who understand him. He is learning quickly how to think about all the fun he can have and really benefits from a female BC buddy as a his mentor dog. Milo will need BC savvy guardians who can continue guiding him step by step through new situations successfully. Most of his worries are diminished now but some new things may throw him so being ready with toys and treats to help him feel secure, is important. He now loves to say hello to people and expects to have a great toy game with everyone he meets, a classic BC focus! Milo started a bit behind having been left in the garage all alone in his previous situation. Fortunately, a dog lover stepped in to get him out of there and into rescue. Milo is about 35 pounds and good with dog savvy cats. He requires a fenced yard





Special thanks to Jeff Beck for transporting Milo to GHF


ADOPTION PENDING

    


POLLY: A petite 2 year old Border Collie, Polly is a toy girl, absolutely loving any toy anytime, anywhere! She is very focused and loves the action of the game. She’s a little girl with a big personality, friendly and outgoing and ready for anything. Polly is settling in at GHF so we’ll update her bio as we get to know her but so far, she is one happy, confident, outgoing Border Collie. She lost her home when her elderly NY guardian died and neighbors stepped in to find she and another dog, a male BC mix, a new home. She and that male got along famously with her being the boss but right now, she seems happiest as the only dog. She is about 35 pounds and Depending on the cat, Polly will chase but will not harm so dog savvy cats only or perhaps, no cats…all depends on the cat.  We are very happy the dog lovers who stepped in, entrusted her to GHF. They are keeping the male mix. She must be in a fenced yard.


ADOPTION PENDING

    



NANN: A petite 2 year old Border Collie, Nann is an amazing little dog with lots of big brainpower, learning anything and everything easily and quickly. She is super sweet, too, an intense cuddler with her person, just adorable. She also loves toys of any kind and is quite the athlete in all toy games! In addition to Nann’s great traits, she has some challenges where she worries about new people so will need a skilled guardian who handle introductions in some situations. Most of the time, she’s super friendly. She came to GHF as a little pup with tons of confidence and smart as a whip. Her adopter felt she couldn’t handle her very busy lifestyle going so many new places so returned Nann to GHF. We’re committed to helping Nann find happiness with someone skilled but more where she can enjoy the great outdoors and play and hike and enjoy being a companion. She is about 25 pounds and is best without cats. Nann plays nicely with other dogs outside but is quite bossy in the house so will be placed as a solo dog. She must be in a fenced yard.

Martie Summary:
 -
solo dog ok

 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - NO cats

    


MARTIE: A 2 year old Border Collie mix, Martie is a character through and through. He loves his toys, entertaining himself with anything that rolls or tosses into the air. He also really loves to explore the fields at GHF, taking in all the sights, sounds and smells, happy to be alive. Martie is extremely outgoing and loves to say "Hi" to people, full of energy and play. He is a pretty bold fellow, confident and engaged, a large personality. He came to GHF from Virginia where his time was up when dog lovers reached out for help. He is about 45 pounds and is not good with cats. We did a DNA test on Martie and he’s part boxer and husky! He requires a fenced yard



A very special thanks to Sue Myers who drove an incredibly long distance to get Martie to safety



                  This petite sweet girl did her duty caring for her pups and landed at GHF at the perfect time to find her new home! Former GHF adopters had been hoping to find the right match to add to their pack since last summer but no one fit very smoothly. So, they waited. They so wanted to add another and returned again with high hopes - BRYNA, now Nikki - was the one! She easily accepted the other three and they relaxed as if she was a long lost friend, exactly the right combination. So, Nikki will enjoy lots of walks, games, learning and even vacations at GHF when they return in 2018 - we love seeing the gang and now it’s even more special

BRYNA: A petite 3 year old Border Collie, Byrna has finished her mamma duties with all pups on their way and now it’s her turn! She is incredibly sweet, a tiny little gem who wants to cuddle and be near your side. She is fine mixing with other dogs but clearly, wants a person to call her own. Bryna is very easy going, good natured and fairly confident in new situations considering her limited history living in an Amish barn. She was fortunately released to a rescue who contacted GHF for help. Bryna has a lovely temperament and will be a fabulous friend for someone who wants a more mellow BC. She is fine with cats and about 35 pounds.


Gus Summary:
 -
solo dog

 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - NO cats

    




GUS LEARNING FRISBEE PLAY

Special thanks to Mary Beggs & Jeff Beck who transported Gus safely to GHF

Gus' Angels
-Stewart & Brenda Beck
-The Horburys

GUS: A 3 year old Border Collie, Gus is a powerhouse BC, with tons of energy and plenty of drive to do what he wants. He is a friendly guy who loves attention but most of all, he needs a real task to carry out, like lots of toy play. Gus excels at learning and is exuberant about toys. A mentally smart boy, he will need a seasoned BC person who understands that this boy will make up his own work unless stimulated properly. Gus is a great BC, in the right hands. Loving, affectionate and eager to please, he is also extremely responsive to someone who is teaching him new activities. He is not good with other dogs and is not good with cats. He came to GHF from a NY farm where he was allowed to work sheep, on his own. The elderly guardians could not manage him or the other BC, both surrendered to GHF. Gus will only be placed in a fenced yard with a BC savvy adopter. He is 50 pounds, a bit larger than the standard size. He requires a fenced yard



Murphy Summary:
 - solo dog
 - fenced yard required

    



Murphy's Angel
  -Liz and Al Bush and GHF alum Shane and Kenai

MURPHY: A 6 year old Border Collie mix, Murphy is a super nice guy and really happy to hang with his person, especially if there could be a ball toss coming his way! Quite the ball nut, he enjoys all kinds of toys but especially a retrieval game. When you stop playing, he gives a good woof and howl to tell you he wants more!! He is a good natured, easy going dog, not as intense as a purebred though just as smart. Murphy relaxes easily inside and is joyful bounding around outside, exploring. His previous NJ guardian lost his home, leaving Murphy homeless, too. While it’s not ideal that he isn’t living the life he is used to, he is most certainly LOVING having a fenced yard for freedom. He’s been a delight to watch as he dashes out the door, head high, for a jaunt through the Farm fields. But, no matter how far he runs, he always wants to know you are right nearby, happiest with his person. Murphy is about 50 pounds, a bit overweight and is not good with cats. Murphy is very bold meeting new dogs so can overwhelm them and would do best as a solo dog.He requires a fenced yard




PEPPER
       We are so happy for this wonderful duo to have found their new lives quickly and with former GHF adopters we know so well - they will completely adore them! Now on their 5th GHF Border Collie, we’re just thrilled to have them adopt again. After overnighting, it was clear that alum Buddy thought these girls were pretty interesting and they felt the same curiosity about him, all a good start. Once outside, they just love the exact same thing - exploring the great outdoors! In a funny bit of history, turns out Buddy used to live with four dogs and Casey & Pepper lived with two others so they are all easily content with a pack of canine pals! Casey & Pepper now live in PA.

CASEY & PEPPER: Two 8 year old Border Collies, these gals are pals through and through! They’ve lived together all their lives and it clearly shows, always looking for each other and happy to check out anything new, together. They are super sweet, easy-going and love people. Pepper is the major ball girl of the two and will endlessly play if someone will give her a good toss. Casey is a tiny bit shy so will hang back and wait to see what is next, just happy to be by your side wherever you go. They are really enjoying the new setting at GHF, exploring the land with gusto. Both will slide back into a new life as great companions for someone special - they are absolutely lovely dogs. They lost their home due to the death of their elderly guardian, who surely adored them. Relatives felt GHF could give this pair the right home suited to their needs. They are a bit overweight from the more sedate situation in recent history but we’ll knock that off easily now that they are more active again. Casey & Pepper are good with dog savvy cats.

CASEY

Henry & Dee Summary:

 - NO cats

    


DEE


HENRY

Henry & Dee in 2012 (below)
Henry & Dee Angels
-Flo Garlinger
-Deb & Stephen Pouech, GHF alums, Zane & Harley & in memory of Wally

HENRY, age 9 and DEE, age 7, have made a return to GHF, sadly due to a very unexpected death that threw their guardians into a new situation where less time was available for this lovely pair. Heartbroken to bring them back, it was the selfless thing to do, for the sake of the dogs who were stuck at home 10-12 hours a day in a completely different situation than what was best for them. We are happy to see them again, so loved and cherished the years they were gone and now, watch them blossom into the active, free-spirited, energetic dogs we knew before and love again, today. Henry is still the big toy boy of this pair and Dee, endlessly herds him! So, as the saying goes, ‘some things never change’ but for sure, these two souls are so very bonded, they will remain together in their next journey. Henry and Dee are absolutely delightful, loving canine friends who believe every human is going to be the best person they meet, happy to toss a toy or go for a walk or car ride. Even our vet remembered just how great they were from their first time here in 2012. They’ve come back a bit chunkier from the recent lack of exercise so we’ll have some new pictures as they shed those pounds. Both are loving big runs in the 30 acre field near the Connor House where they are living. Since Henry is not good with cats, they will go without cats. They are trained on the invisible fence.

GHF always stands ready to respond to special needs where GHF alums need to return and while we are saddened to see this happen, every GHF Border Collie has a safe haven here, no matter what reason or what age.


KELLY needs Angels - click here for more info
Kelly Summary:
 - solo dog OK

    


KELLY is an amazing athlete, so fit, so agile and so focused, a classic Border Collie wired with all the traits that anyone who loves the breed, will love with her!  And, she is a great hiking partner with perfect recall!


Kelly's Angels
-Barbara McNaughton in loving memory of Savvy
-“In honor of the GHF team & their amazing work”, the Strano family
-Sandra Radebaugh

KELLY: An 11 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Kelly is an amazing girl, bright as can be and just full of that classic sharp-eyed, ready to go, gonna have fun BC spirit! She is a gem. Kelly is also a very active, intense, energetic girl in no way acting her age so she deserves a great life where someone enjoys all this joyful energy! She loves her ball and will play endlessly though a little bit of down time is good, too, where she shows her more affectionate side. Super sweet and friendly, Kelly is a great companion, able to hike off leash though has never lived unfenced. She is fine with cats, fine with dogs but used to living as a solo dog so likely happiest that way. Kelly was relinquished to GHF from NJ guardians who had to make a move to an apartment.


Mandy Summary:

 - dog savvy cats

    



Mandy's Angels
-Brenda Hamm, in memory of GHF alum, Daisy Girl Charlotte
-Sandy Fazio and GHF alum, Ace
-Sarah and Nancy Baldwin, in memory of GHF alum Finn
MANDY: An 11 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Mandy is a gorgeous girl who loves people more than anything at all..even the ball won’t deter her from being close by her person. She is super sweet and very loving, a devoted friend which she has been all her years til the loss of her person. Mandy is making great strides with all the change around her and truly enjoying the activity and attention of a more active life, blossoming before our eyes. She is full of spunk and curiosity and would easily join someone in a new life, especially a guardian who appreciates the wisdom of the senior BC’s.. Mandy is a very special girl with a huge heart she wants to share again…we can clearly feel that. Mandy is also a strong female BC so best as a solo dog though in her history, did visit dog parks. At this point, dogs are the last thing she desires. Mandy is about 40 pounds and best with dog savvy cats.

Special thanks to Cindy Rollins who quickly pulled Mandy out of a PA shelter where she had sadly landed.
Also a big thanks to Kathy Devaney, Carol Cunningham, Sue Myers and our Transport Coordinator, Jane Locacio  who made it possible for Mandy to make it to GHF.

MAGG Summary:
 
- Solo dog
 - fenced yard required

    

MAGG, a 10 1/2 year old, is a sensitive, thoughtful girl who observes everything and absolutely adores people. Her favorite place to be is right by your side, like a shadow, the closer the better. This sweetheart would be thrilled to have someone to call her own, again. And, while she has shared her life with Mac & Molly, clearly her happiness comes from the connection with a person. We would love for Magg to be the center of someone’s life cause she gives her heart so fully. She is about 45 pounds and good with cats.  She needs a fenced yard.

MOLLY and MAC Summary:
 
-adopted together - no other dogs
 -needs a fenced yard
 - no cats

    

Angels for Mac
-Patti & Ron Fousek, Aspen & Lucy
-Jane & Rich Kihlstrom

MOLLY, a 10 1/2 year old, is a classic BC, watching everything that goes on, well aware of the whole Farm. She’s the first to head to the fence line, hoping to say hello and get a look at the action. Molly is sharp as can be, brilliant! She is physically in great shape, very athletic and would love to accompany her person on hikes. Her recall is great.  Molly loves everyone she meets and is used to having Mac as her pal. Molly is about 40 pounds and good with cats.  MAC, a 12 year old, is a hoot! He is full of personality and makes you laugh any time you watch him in action. A super friendly guy, he will happily follow his person anywhere or head off for a good romp with Molly. She is the leader and he’s just fine with that though he does give her a little test, egging her on for some play. But, soon as the toys are out, he just loves the squeekies and will play endlessly. Mac is very easy going. Originally bought from Hawaii, his great nature is obvious. He is not good with cats and about 50 pounds.
Special thanks to Erica Snyder who heard about them from a co-worker and helped them make it to GHF. Also, a big thanks to Sue Myers, Todd Leppert and Jane Locacio who helped make the transport possible. Without kind-hearted people willing to give up their Saturday to get them north, these three would not have landed so well.


SPECIAL HOME REQUIRED
The dogs posted in this section are sweet with good-natured personalities but they need more than many of the rescues at GHF…none of these dogs have lived in a home. So, they were not given the guidance necessary to negotiate the real world like walking on a leash; riding in a car; handling a houseful of guests; the sounds of a home with the dishwasher or air conditioner turning on…the very things that puppies adapt to, these Border Collies were never exposed to.

Their lives were dismal..chained all day and night; left in garages, barns, or basements alone all day and night; or stuck in crates all day or night; neglected mentally, physically and emotionally. THESE DOGS DID NOT HAVE THE LOVE OR GUIDANCE FROM A HUMAN WHO CARED

What this means is that GHF Caretakers have to work very hard to help each and every dog find their way through many uncomfortable new experiences and that takes time, lots of time. Fears and worries stop progress and the only plan is to pace along with what the dog can handle when they can handle it. EVERYTHING THEY ARE LEARNING IS BRAND NEW TO THEM. We introduce them to home settings and town walks and car rides but it takes repetition for them to feel secure about it all.

WE ARE OPEN TO ADOPTERS WHO UNDERSTAND THESE SPECIAL NEEDS DOGS but will not let them go to busy suburban settings, active family environments or wherever they are not center stage as the focus of someone’s lives. These dogs need someone special. They deserve full attention and they cannot adjust easily to anything new.


Lewis Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - bc friend required

    


Lewis' Angel
-Stacey Greenberg, GHF Alum Merlin and the Shollies
-Vivienne & Mark & Pixie – in memory of our beloved Bear

LEWIS: SPECIAL HOME REQUIRED A petite 1 year old Border Collie, little Lewis is one sweetheart, a kind soul who will blossom into a marvelous friend with trust and time. He wants to be with a person and will gently come near, hoping for some affection, lightly jumping up in your arms for hugs. He will do best with a patient person and a calm home with another herding pal cause he loves other dogs and gains confidence with them. Lewis is benefiting from time at GHF to find his inner Border Collie and let some of his timidity go. He is loving the freedom to race, chase and play and happy to meet new people, step by step, with a little help. He came to GHF from another rescue who pulls Amish dogs from puppy mills. We are pretty sure he is the Dad of Bryna’s pups since they were relinquished at the same time. She and Lewis are small BC’s, as is often the case with Amish farm dogs. Lewis is 30 pounds and is good with cats. He’s a bit timid about the camera so we’ll add new pictures when he relaxes a bit more. Lewis requires a fenced yard.


Special thanks to Jane Locacio for coordinating transport of Lewis & Bryna. Many thanks also to Karen Mansfield who brought Lewis all the way to the Farm.

Bella Summary:
 - canine friend preferred

Bella's Angels
-
Wendy Macfarland
BELLA: SPECIAL HOME REQUIRED A very petite 1 year old Border Collie mix, Bella is a shy girl, very skittish at first but once settled into a home with her person, sweet as can be! She is really gentle and loves to play with another dog who is easy going and young. She is so small that a dog similar in size seems to suit her best. Bella loves attention from the person she trusts and very sweetly nudges you for more touching but she’s not a girl who will befriend everyone. Instead, she will retreat to try to understand what’s happening. She will only be placed in a calmer setting in an adult home to help her confidence grow. Bella was abandoned in a PA shelter when her guardian didn’t have enough time for her. The shelter experience added to her worries so we are hoping, with more time at GHF, she’ll relax and enjoy herself better. She is about 30 pounds and not good with cats. She requires a fenced yard.


Jade Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - solo dog or male bc friend

    





Special thanks to Carolyn & Dick Dumaresq, Carol Cunningham and Todd Leppert who  made sure to get these two to GHF.  Always a big thanks to Jane Locacio who handles all our transports. 
Jade's Angels
-Michael & Wendy Stahl, Lulu and GHF alum Teddy

JADE: SPECIAL HOME REQUIRED A petite 2 year old Border Collie, Jade is an active little girl who gets the zoomies, zipping all around whenever she’s excited - she’s quite adorable. She loves having a bc pal, preferably male and really comes right out of her shell and pairs up easily for non-stop play. We feel she’ll do best with a friend though would consider the right situation as a solo dog. Jade is fairly sensitive and can be timid so does best with patient, calm people who approach her with treats and toys and give her time. Once she knows you, she is extremely affectionate and loves being in your lap! We’re watching as Jade just blossoms at GHF, enjoying all kinds of toy play and attention. She had a very limited life, living in a shed used for breeding. She was posted ‘free to good home’ on craigslist and thankfully, landed at GHF instead of in the wrong place. She is 35 pounds and good with cats. She requires a fenced yard.


Elle Summary:
 - solo dog or mentor friend
 - fenced yard required

    





Elle is really becoming a real Border Collie, learning what it’s like to chase, race and move! She’s coming out of her shell.

Special thanks to Robin, Michelle and Kerry who helped get Elle to GHF safely.
Elle's Angel
Susan Autz
ELLE: SPECIAL HOME REQUIRED A petite 2 year old Border Collie, Elle is precious, a sweet little thing that wants nothing more than to be with a person that cares for her. A real cuddler, soon as you sit with her, she lays at your feet and settles in beautifully, even enjoying a good roll in the grass! Elle has a lot to learn about life..things she’s never seen or done because she was taken nowhere so she will need a patient guardian to guide her. She gets very nervous thinking she is wrong and will collapse in one spot, hoping not to be in trouble but with reassurance and time, she quickly recovers, happily by your side. In her short time at GHF, she has blossomed beautifully and is racing, chasing and running with other Border Collies, really gaining her confidence. We will only place her with a BC savvy adopter and with another herding dog. It’s also best if she has a mentor dog but depending on the person, she might be able to go as a solo dog in a calm home. Elle is very trusting but has so much to learn. It’s amazing how sweet and open she is considering she was left on a 12 inch chain in a cow barn, all alone and no freedom to move at all. Elle didn’t herd so not really sure the point of having her there but she did produce a litter of pups which meant money so perhaps that’s why. Either way, we are thankful for a dog lover who spotted her and alerted GHF that she was not wanted. She is about 30 pounds and good with cats. She requires a fenced yard.

Victor's Angels
-Jodi Adelsohn-Ruff & Gregg Ruff & Skid, Rave & GHF alum, Cassie in memory of Tucker, Peaches, Guinness & GHF alums, Jett & FLash
VIC (VICTOR) SPECIAL HOME REQUIRED A 3 year Border Collie, Vic is a gorgeous guy with the sweetest nature, eager to meet people and loving attention.  He is quite a cuddler, enjoying belly rubs and lots of affection. He can be so outgoing and absolutely loves to run and is gorgeous to watch as he heads out into the fields at the Farm. With a quick whistle, he returns to be by your side. Since Vic is a ‘softer’ dog with people, he worries about being wrong and will duck away from any loud voice or fast moving hands as if he has been ‘mis-handled’. Vic only wants to be loved. He blossoms with reassuring positive support and will continue to gain even more confidence in the right hands. He will only go to BC savvy guardians in a calmer, rural setting. Vic has a strong BC eye so is a big-time herder with other dogs so we’d like him to be a solo dog and enjoy all the focus on him so his interest in toys can be developed. He came from a tough situation with breeders who did not care properly for the dogs. Animal control hoped to shut down the operation, without success, until the death of the guardian. Vic was left outside in the yard when police checked on the house and found the guardian was dead. It had been three months he fended for himself. Vic is so much happier learning to trust that people are with him and care for him appropriately. He requires a fenced yard.
Special thanks to Ellen Simcik, Erica Snyder, Borden Loving, Phillip Dalke, Sue Myers and Debbi & Tony Grassi who made it possible for Victor to make it from Pittsburgh to GHF.  As always, a big thanks to Jane Locacio for handling all the coordination of this important transport. It always takes a village!


A petite 6 month old Border Collie, little Teah is a gentle, gentle soul who is trying to be brave in her new world, trusting she can enjoy other Border Collies and perhaps, just maybe, trust a human or two, too. Teah is VERY. VERY shy. (See complete BIO below!)
Teah is going to Thera-Vet Acres in Webster NY to be fostered by the owners and learn about living safely with people and other BC’s (they have a few from GHF! including infamous Lucas!) She will receive PT treatment daily with hopes to have success in one portion of her body.

Teah came to GHF thanks to kind dog lovers stepping in when the people who bought her, an elderly couple in wheelchairs who were tying her out, asked for help. Thankfully, Teah landed at GHF.

PLEASE HELP US COVER HER PHYSICAL THERAPY COSTS, APPROXIMATELY $1500 for a month.
We so appreciate your support for her.

She is one of the lucky ones who got out of the hellish puppy mill setting but will need more help.

TEAH: TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE A petite 6 month old Border Collie, little Teah is a gentle, gentle soul who is trying to be brave in her new world, trusting she can enjoy other Border Collies and perhaps, just maybe, trust a human or two, too. Teah is VERY. VERY shy. She had a rough start from a large puppy mill situation and now has some physical deficits. Her back legs scuff as she walks and she is knock-kneed though she runs just fine. Upon diagnostic evaluations at Upstate Surgical Veterinary Specialties with Dr. Bookbinder, turns out her hips are perfect! However, she’s learned to walk oddly which we are pretty sure comes from being crammed into a too small crate. She was sold at 5 months old over the internet so she was in the crated setting way behind a normal pup size. Teah also has disc deformity with a few vertebrae spaced too closely together. While we can’t confirm the crate theory, both physical issues could easily come from her history. Puppy mills are notorious for housing dogs inhumanely and this internet breeder has a terrible reputation online. Our China dog from years ago, Bing, had the same growing deformities based on the cruel lack of space.


FINN needs ANGEL SUPPORT for MAJOR SURGERY and…
VOLUNTEER HELP during his RECOVERY!

CLICK HERE to help with Finn's surgery costs.

Within short order of Finn’s arrival, we noticed intermittent lameness in his front left leg. After significant rest periods with pain medication, it became apparent that the limp was still there. After consultation with Dr. Paul Bookbinder at Upstate Veterinary Surgical Center in Syracuse, FINN has undergone orthopedic surgery for bi-lateral osteocondritis(OCD) where a piece of cartilage has separated from the underlying bone and the floating piece has been removed. This is on his left leg, first. Then after six weeks of healing, his right leg will be re-assessed to see if surgery is needed there, too. The Caretaker team will be managing his boredom with all kinds of mental activities since this is one busy Border Collie!!!!

FINN: TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE An 11 month old Border Collie, Finn is a gorgeous boy with tons of energy - he loves to go, go, go! He is a major toy boy with interest in any toy he can find and with endless desire to play, even entertaining himself, racing around throwing toys in the air or making up his own games. He is friendly and outgoing, with lots of confidence but will only be placed with BC savvy guardians who understand the demanding needs of young dogs. Finn is NOT for first time BC adopters. Finn was crated 8 - 10 hours a day so has to rebalance since he now has tons of freedom to run and enjoy letting out all his energy rather than being so frustrated being restrained. We’ll update his bio as he unwinds since he’s changing quickly, blossoming with the connection of people more involved with him. His previous guardians had no idea what to do with all his energy except contain it which is the worst situation for young BC’s. Finn seems to be doing best as a solo dog at this time but we’ll adjust his information if that changes. He is about 40 pounds and not yet tested on cats. Thankfully, BC lovers stepped in to get him to GHF. He requires a fenced yard.



The past two weeks, we noticed Piper coming up lame on her back leg, recovering with rest and it happening again so off to Upstate Veterinary Surgical Center and Dr. Paul Bookbinder.

Sadly, not great news…bi-lateral luxating patellas…both knees pop out of the joint with movement. The right is far worse than the left so surgery is the best option to help both knees. Sweet Piper absolutely LOVES to run, run, run so this is going to be tough on her with complete crate rest for three months. Once we get through that recovery period, her left knee will be reassessed and surgery will be considered.

We are so happy to help this girl but these unexpected costs are going to be around
$2000-$2500 per knee so she needs ANGEL SUPPORT PLEASE!!

Please share the story of Piper with others who might want to support her care.

PIPER: TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE A petite 3 year old Border Collie mix, Piper is a sweet, sweet girl, gentle as can be and also a sensitive girl who needs some TLC. She blossoms with reassurance and a calm voice, encouraging her to explore and trust that the world is fun! With a canine pal, she comes right to life, loving to make up chase games and wrestle and race, just adorable. She will be happiest with a pal who clearly gives her more confidence. Piper likes toys of any kind and will tug or retrieve a toss, following the fun of her canine buddy if they also like toys. She is also quite a cuddler once she feels secure and will lovingly hang in your lap for lots of attention. She will only be placed into a quiet home where Piper can thrive with support. She is about 30 pounds and not good with cats. We’ll update her pictures as she relaxes more at GHF. She must be in a fenced yard.

BENTLEY: TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE A 5 year old Border Collie mix, Bentley is one sweet, sweet guy who just loves his ball time as well as cuddling time with a person. He has some issues we are trying to understand with extreme hair loss. So far, his diagnostics have not led to answers but we’ll find them! And, get this sweetheart back to good health. Bentley is adorable, absolutely the nicest dog, just full of joy. He could care less that his looks are not up to par, instead he’s all about fun! We’ll update his bio once we have more clarity on his health needs. Bentley is great with other dogs and loves every human he meets! He is good with cats. He was relinquished to GHF from a PA guardian who could not meet his needs.

Special thanks to Lisa Barrett for opening her heart and home
to foster Bentley in Vermont.

BRAYDEN: TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE  A sweet 9 yr old guy with a big healing stretch ahead, we’ve given him a special Celtic name which means Brave and that he is and will continue to be…nothing keeps this wonderful boy down. He is happy to be with people, loves to be touched and have belly rubs and is enjoying all the care coming his way. Already a month has gone by and his hair is growing and he's brighter though has a haul ahead. His skin condition is on the mend with weekly anti-fungal baths, antibiotics and continued treatment. When a dog’s immune system takes an awful hit from malnourishment and fleas, the key is time and proper treatment. Whatever it takes, we’ll be there for Brayden. He is 45 pounds and good with cats.  Found as a stray, this boy landed in a PA shelter that cared for him, then sought help from rescue. GHF was the only one willing to step up and we are so very glad we did. His deep, soulful eyes tell the story of a smart boy with great will to survive.

October
: BRAYDEN continues to improve while we visit Cornell to review his skin needs which are still unresolved. He does look so handsome now compared to his arrival and is starting to be more joyful, too

The Senior Sanctuary residents will live out their lives at the Farm.

Ana's Angels
-Karen & Parke Byron & GHF alums, Obi & Bindi

ANA is going to remain at GHF now returning from her foster home so she can be supported and loved in the safety of the country setting here. Her curious nature leads her to enjoy all that nature has to offer and we know she will be happiest without any more changes.

A huge thanks to the Catteneo family who kindly fostered Ana for almost 3 years, helping her experience the love of a family and a new journey with humans who care deeply.

ANA: A petite 9 year old Border Collie, Ana is very shy but becoming more courageous as time goes by. She is intrigued by all the changes in her life but needs the greatest reassurance to bravely try anything new. She is so incredibly gentle and sweet and so wants to trust people. Ana loves to chase the other dogs and is really coming out of her shell, step by step. She is about 30 pounds and is good with cats. Ana suffered through an awful situation caged inside without access to the outside and without appropriate care of any kind, part of a breeder operation. She requires a fenced yard.  Ana can jump a fence so needs a high fenced yard and continual supervision outside. If she hears sounds that scare her, she may bolt away from her person in a panic so she is a flight risk.





Frannie's Angels
-Eve Ehrlich & Steve Jensen, In Memory of sweet Mittens
-Karen & Clem Arrison & DeeDee & Reggie
Sweet FRANNIE charmed us all upon her arrival in late September and we had so hoped she’d find a new home to call her own and in fact, she did and it’s the Farmhouse Senior Sanctuary.  This petite ball nut has very diminished eyesight which seems to be worsening and she has very diminished hearing, if any.  It would be so unfair for her to be separated from her BC pal, Betsie, since they clearly are quite a well matched pair.

So we welcome Frannie home permanently at GHF!  We all just adore her and the antics between she and Betsie are so fun to see!

FRANNIE: A petite 11 year old Border Collie, little Frannie is a spitfire about her toys, truly coming to life non-stop for play and loving the game with her person. She is full of spunk even with a backend that’s a bit wobbly - there's no stopping this girl from her game! She is curious and outgoing with a new setting and wants to say hello to people. Frannie has hearing deficits so will need a fenced yard. She is about 30 pounds and not yet tested on cats.




Betsie's Angels
-Karen & Clem Arrison & DeeDee & Reggie
 As we’ve gotten to know BETSIE, it’s clear that she’s a happy, healthy senior with lots of energy to herd other dogs and enjoy life. And, it’s also clear she’ll be happiest in the simpler, dog focused life at GHF.  She is very skittish about anyone new and has taken a very long time to accept our Senior Caretaker so at her age, we’ll just let her take whatever time she needs to find her way. We’ll adjust to suit her comfort level without forcing her into a new world.  We’re happy to have this petite sweetheart here and will enjoy watching her unfold.  Welcome to the Farmhouse Sanctuary Betsie!

BETSIE: A petite 13 year old Border Collie, Betsie is quite the herder, very eager to chase and circle and catch the action of another BC with a toy. She is normally very shy but comes right to life when she has action to follow - quite adorable. Betsie has just arrived at GHF so we’ll update her bio after we spend more time with her during the hiatus and handle her vet needs fully. She is about 30 pounds and not yet tested on cats.





Lacey's Angels
-In celebration of two years with our Maggie, Lydia & John Henshaw
-Ray & Patty Fasullo in honor of the Fortier-Horan Wedding
-Karen & Clem Arrison & DeeDee & Reggie
   LACEY is going to live her life at GHF, where she can befriend plenty of folks who adore her; watch over the big yard to see who is coming and going and safely live with people who truly understand her quirks. With some serious food guarding traits and handling issues, it’s clear Lacey will thrive in the hands of experienced Caretakers at GHF. She is enjoying her life as the “office dog”, happily part of the non-stop action all week long. Then, on weekends, she gets to check out the acres and acres of GHF to be sure all is in line there, too! Lacey is a hoot!! We welcome this big personality character to keep us on our toes for years to come!!!

LACEY: A 12 year old Border Collie, Lacey is a petite girl with a big personality, absolutely a love-bug with everyone. She says hello like she’s a long time pal, happy for attention. She is very observant and bright-eyed, paying attention with that classic BC mind. Lacey is enjoying the new experience of being the Office Dog at GHF since she sure loves people and is not so good with other dogs, so her new life is suiting her well! She lived in one home since a pup but the recent addition of a grandchild was not a good combination so she was separated living in the basement alone. Fortunately, Lacey is now part of the action with lots to watch and do. She was relinquished to GHF from PA. She is about 35 pounds and best with dog savvy cats.

   BUDDY: A 13 year old Border Collie, Buddy is one of those rare dogs who just loves everyone - he absolutely enjoys any person he meets and will embrace them like a long lost friend! He is a delightful, good-natured happy guy who is working at understanding his new situation at GHF. He lost his home due to the health of his elderly guardian and clearly searching to be with someone special again. He wags his tail so easily when anyone comes over to say hi, obviously a beloved friend for many years. Our Caretaker for the Seniors is working hard for Buddy to know we love him, too. Buddy is great with other dogs, sliding in easily to meet the other Border Collies and is really enjoying his time in the GHF yard, exploring every nook and cranny. Buddy has a heart murmur so we decided it’s easiest on him to be a GHF Senior Sanctuary resident. Buddy is great with cats, too, a good citizen to all! He came to GHF from PA when family members could not take him in.

Shilo's Angels
-Pat Maier in memory of Bob Maier
-Karen & Clem Arrison & DeeDee & Reggie

  SHILO: A 13 year old Border Collie, this girl is one gorgeous, good-natured BC, absolutely the quintessential personality of what draws everyone to want this breed. She is smart, focused and super friendly. However, she is serious about her ‘work’…her ball play…always just hoping for one more throw. With that charming, eager look of ‘how about it?!’…it’s hard to resist not tossing one more toy her way and she knows that! Shilo is lovely and so much fun, a spirited girl. Sometimes, people think age 12 is old but if you really spend time with this breed, you know first-hand that many mature dogs have the energy of a youthful dog cause when they have drive to ‘work/play’, they want to go, go, go, no matter their age and that is Shilo for sure. Shilo was from a PA home that bred Border Collies, relinquished to GHF when they wanted to stop breeding. She is about 40 pounds and good with dog savvy cats.

SMOKEY needs Angels - click here for more info


Smokey's Angels
-Steve & Suzie Blake, Ozzie & GHF alums, Raleigh & Kayla
-Karen & Clem Arrison & DeeDee & Reggie
SMOKEY: A 13 year old Border Collie, Smokey is not only a gorgeous guy, he has the sweetest personality. He loves all people and gets along with all dogs, quite the BC ambassador! Of course, no matter his senior age, once the ball comes out, he is completely focused on getting a toss! That spirit to catch again is what keeps that spark in his eye and speed in his step. In typical border collie fashion, Smokey will continue to drop balls at your feet until you toss one. At 13 y old he can still keep up with the other young dogs and chases them for any ball he hopes to grab. Smokey lived in one home since a pup but was given up because of lifestyle change. He had been living outside in a fenced in area for the last 2 years and is clearly loving life in the warm, cozy setting of his foster home



Special thanks to Ann Gardner who helped make it possible for Bradley to land at GHF.

-Happy Birthday Carlos! from Sandy Iglesias
-Karen & Clem Arrison & DeeDee & Reggie
BRADLEY, at 14 years old, finds himself at GHF and we’re happy he’s landed here. He is the sweetest guy, loves everyone and is up for this big change, curious and eager to meet the other Border Collies! He has a wonderful nature, having lived in one home since a puppy, clearly loved. His previous guardian hit hard times and felt Bradley would do best at the Senior Sanctuary, rather than home alone 10 hours with his new job and a move. We agreed and are happy to help. We’ve treated Bradley's medical needs healing a serious skin infection, ear infection, and had a dental to remove some horrible teeth so he’s now feeling better. He’s now also on pain meds for his backend issues so really moving around great! His spirit is strong and his will is classic Border Collie so he’s renewed to being a ‘youngster’ again! He is about 50 pounds and good with cats so will enjoy our Farmhouse cat, Blu, making friends with her as well as the other seniors!





Bo's Angels
-Susan Strange & GHF alum Jack
BO: A 18 year old Border Collie mix, Bo needed a place to hang his hat when his person had to move to a campground that didn’t take dogs.  He’s lived with one person since 6 months old so this is not the easiest change for him but we’re working hard to give him the feeling of home. Bo is now our office dog so he has someone with him almost all the time which he loves. This sweet, wonderful boy quietly lays inside, undisturbed by all the activity cause he just loves being WITH someone!  Bo is also quite athletic, faster than most seniors we see, going for a speedy run around the yard. He’s happy as can be when he can run and explore.  He is great with other dogs and cats alike. Bo has had all had all the health diagnostics done and doing beautifully.  He’s a petite guy, at 30 pounds. He was purchased by his guardian long ago, at a PA flea market. 

BO, is officially the oldest senior in Border Collie rescue at GHF, ever! He is turning 18 this month! Bo is in foster care in Ct with a GHF adopter, Cheryl Lewis, and her BC pack, happily sharing her home and her heart with this sweet boy. We are so grateful that he is having a grand time! He loves the walks on the Ct beach!
