   Little KOBE is about to have a fun filled busy life with sports and activities suited to him! He joins two other canine pals who he’ll hike with daily since his new FurMom is active all the time! For him, he’ll also be able to do agility, frisbee, dock-diving, freestyle... whatever seems most fun. But, most importantly, he’ll be a cherished family member! He now lives in NJ.

KOBE: A 5 month old Border Collie, this little fella is a curious boy, pretty confidently checking out everything he encounters and happy to see the world without worry. He is very sweet, people focused pup who has not yet realized the inner Border Collie inside! He’s meeting other dogs beautifully and all the humans, too, thinking everyone is his new friend. Kobe may develop more intensity as he’s around the BC’s at GHF but it’s too early to tell. He has a wonderful nature and responds well to new situations, with ease. He is about 20 pounds. He was given up due to allergies.


Oree Summary:
 -
bc friend preferred
 - fenced yard required
 - NO cats

    




OREE is maturing at GHF, turning into a fabulous ball dog with amazing precision about where he puts that long body of his! He’s having so much fun and we are enjoying this amazing transformation with his increased focus.

Oree's Angels
 -Beverle Lessley & Tom Pizza
 -Laura Langworthy
 -Vicki Buono, in memory of Syd, & GHF alums Mav & Skye
OREE: A 9 month old Border Collie mix, Oree is hilarious, full of energy and happiness being able to run in the fields at GHF. He is clearly mixed with a joyful breed, ready to abandon all reason for a big romp! He would love a canine pal for play, another mix who just loves to race, chase and cavort around, truly have a dog game of fun. He is not super focused or intense, he’s just playful. Oree has some very mouthy tendencies so needs an adult home to help shape his focus to be more appropriate. He is extremely friendly and sweet and happy to say hello to everyone. He is about 40 pounds and is not good with cats. He came to GHF from a NJ shelter where he had been abandoned due to a move. He requires a fenced yard




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

    





Milo's Angels
-Greg & Helen Crowell, in Tanner's memory
-Jonathan & Franny Ilany, Rye & Moss, GHF alums
MILO: An 11 month 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 benefit 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



 ADDIE joined GHF alum, Ash for a loving life with former adopters who love the breed and were so excited to finally find the perfect friend to complete their family. After waiting many months and trying a couple different dogs, it was sweet Addie who fit perfectly. She is now happily hanging in a new home, totally cherished.

ADDIE: A 14 month old Border Collie, Addie is a beautiful girl inside and out, just a sweetheart. A gentle soul soon ready to discover her inner BC, she is a gem. Her soft nature shows itself with other dogs and people, happy to cuddle up by your side and be friends. She would do great with a friendly canine pal to lead the way and someone home a great deal since that’s what she is used to. Addie is good with cats and about 55 pounds, a taller girl than the normal BC size. She came to GHF from an elderly PA guardian who absolutely adored her but knew she needed more. A friend of the Farm stepped in to make it possible for Addie to have a more active life. We’ll update her bio as the days unfold. She requires a fenced yard



FINN needs an Angel - click here for more info
Finn Summary:
 - bc friend or active solo dog
 - fenced yard required
 - dog savvy cats

    




FINN: A petite 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Finn is a delight, absolutely the coolest little guy to land at GHF in a long time. He is smart as a whip, focused and fun, like a little person in fur! Finn loves having a human to partner with, whether it’s for hiking, frisbee or sports cause he bonds fast and is eager to learn. He is super responsive and sweet as can be, too. His classic BC mind blossoms with someone savvy who loves stimulating a brilliant dog like him cause he’s not one to just ‘hang out’. He dives into toy play and would be a blast shaping his behaviors since he’s so agile and so focused. Finn is very friendly with everyone he meets and so observant as he goes out in the world, truly paying close attention to every little detail, curious and confident. He was clearly a beloved family member but needed a more active life than his previous VA guardians could consistently provide. He has a great foundation of behaviors and training already in place that easily transfers to anyone new to him. He is about 35 pounds and is good with dog savvy cats.

Finn has a juvenile cataract in his left eye that has been monitored all his life and re-evaluated at Cornell once he landed at GHF. Impacting only one eye, it’s considered a ‘faint cataract’ with minimal impact in his vision. All other aspects of the eye are perfectly normal and it’s low probability that the other eye will be affected. Finn would require yearly eye visits.



Special thanks to Stephanie Prochazka, Kathy Devaney, Sue Myers and Todd Leppert who helped make it possible for Finn to make it all the way to NY!


Ash Summary:
 - solo dog
 - fenced yard required
 - rural setting 

    



Ash's Angels
-Tux & Michael Opalinski, in memory of Zach

ASH: A petite 1 1/2 year old Border Collie, Ash is a beautiful girl and she’s very sweet, eager to be by your side. She is, however, sensitive and a bit reserved with new people so will need a skilled Border Collie guardian who does not rush her and can help her gain confidence. Ash bonds very strongly with the person she trusts and can be shy with others. While she is good meeting other dogs, she can be very bossy and controlling with any that she lives with which is in fact, why she was relinquished to GHF. It would take a very special submissive male BC to live with her but it is likely she’ll do better as a solo dog in the household. She is smart and attentive, eager to please and bonds with people but will be best in a calmer setting without a lot of pressure. She is good with cats and trained on the invisible fence however she lived near enough to a road to get interested in traffic so will chase cars if left alone outside. Ash is 35lbs and has not been tested with cats. She came to GHF from a NY guardian who felt she deserved more focused attention. Ash must be in a fenced yard, more rural setting.


Sadie Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - canine
friend -submissive male or solo
 - NO cats

    




Sadie's Angels
-Pete & Renate Goodloe, Doc & Rosie
-Reid and Elliot Roche
SADIE: A very petite 2 year old Border Collie mix, Sadie is absolutely adorable. If any dog epitomized the meaning of JOY - it’s this girl! She’s like a pint-sized BC but easy going and playful without the intensity. And, now that she has a fenced yard for racing around. We barely got any pictures where she wasn’t off the ground in full flight! And, what a happy girl she was as she flew across the field. She loves squeaky toys and loves to investigate anything, quite curious. Sadie is also such an affectionate, cuddly girl, loving to be right in your lap, sweet as can be. Everyone at GHF just adores this friendly, outgoing, joyful girl! She is a strong female so mixes well with submissive male dogs. She is 25 pounds and is not good with cats. Sadie came from a NYC home but her previous guardian felt it was really unfair to keep her leashed and alone all day while she worked - we agree - this little girl is going to love moving freely and choosing what she wants to do! She requires a fenced yard

Sadie is a fun little girl - making her video debut. She is a big toy and puzzle girl, a delight to watch plus she’s learning tricks too!

Alice Reath
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


Gus Summary:
 -
solo dog

 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - NO cats

    




Gus' Angels
-Geoff & Chris Phillips & Jesse

Elaine Cave
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


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

Bud Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - solo dog OK
 - rural setting required

    






Special thanks to Carolyn & Dick Dumaresq, Vanessa Ayres, Sue Myers and Roxanne Shank for getting Buddy to GHF and Jane Locacio for coordinating the transport. And, thanks to Erica Snyder for handling the intake process.
Bud's Angels
-Bill, Marilyn, Gabe, Jakki and GHF alum Nicky

BUD: A 3 1/2 year old Border Collie, Bud is a good-natured guy who loves his toys! He will thoroughly enjoy a great ball game or lots of squeaky toys, even entertaining himself. A real toy nut, his joy is contagious, clearly one happy boy! Bud is not as intense as many BC’s, and would be happy in a great fenced yard to call his own with someone who adores him. Quite the cuddler, too, he is very affectionate, loving to be on the couch by your side. Bud is fine with other dogs though really loves to have his own toys and not share so will be happiest as a solo dog at home. He did not have a fenced yard in his previous home so was in an outdoor kennel or tied out. Bud has truly blossomed with the freedom to run free at GHF . He is fine with cats and about 40 pounds. Bud has some interest in watching cars which makes sense considering that was his ‘job’ while alone outside. He’ll do best in a more rural setting where traffic is not visually obvious. Bud came to GHF from a PA guardian who had him since a puppy and felt he needed a more appropriate situation. He requires a fenced yard in a rural setting.


Haley Summary:
 - fenced yard REQUIRED
 - solo dog
 - more rural home setting
 - NO cats

    


Haley's Angel
-Cappy's Woods
-
Josh & Sharron, Patty & Drake, in memory of Oliver
HALEY: A 4 year old Border Collie, Haley is a gorgeous girl with lots of energy to race and chase and play! She’s active like any BC this age and she wants something to DO so will need a BC savvy guardian who understands her needs. She loves people and bonds quickly, eager to be with her person, side by side for whatever activities can be done together. Haley is focused and smart and very observant, a delightfully confident girl. She keeps tabs on everything around, including cars so will need to live in a more rural setting, with a fenced yard where traffic is not in sight. She is a strong female so likely best as a solo dog. She is not good with cats and Haley is about 40 pounds. She came to GHF from a PA shelter, moved north after having puppies.

Special thanks to Ellen Simcik, Joanne Cook, Tony & Debbie Grassi, Donnie Ross and Erica Snyder for transporting Haley to GHF

Haley is such a character with unbelievable talent to make us all chuckle!

GINNY needs an Angel - click here for more info
Ginny Summary:
 - solo dog
 - fenced yard required
 - rural setting 

    



GINNY: A 4 year old Border Collie, Ginny is a lively, energized girl who loves to race and run and play so would do best with lots of space to do so. She is also a sensitive girl with people so bonds well with whomever is her person but is not always comfortable with new people. She will need a patient guardian who lets her blossom without pressure from strangers and then helps her meet people with treats and toys. Ginny is quite a thinker, not impulsive so once she connects with someone, it is forever and she is super sweet and loving. She will do best with a BC savvy adopter who truly understands the breed. Ginny can be a strong herder with other dogs so kicks into over-control, making it hard for the other dog to go for a ball so we’re going to consider her a solo dog. She did, however, live with a jack russell who did well with her so perhaps, a non-BC canine friend could work. Ginny is good with cats and about 45 pounds. She was relinquished directly to GHF from NY guardians who had to move to an urban setting. Ginny must be in a fenced yard, more rural setting.




Shawnee Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - solo dog

    



Shawnee is THE biggest toy dog ever! Just loves any and every toy she is given!!

Special thanks to Sue Myers for driving Shawnee from PA to GHF so she would have safety in rescue.

Love from your puppy, Jude
-Bob & Jeanne Yarrow

SHAWNEE: A petite 5 year old Border Collie with ABCA papers, Shawnee is extremely sweet and gentle and hilarious with her toys! We keep trying to get pictures of this girl but she’s afraid of the camera - watching her toss around her toys and zoom around like a puppy, is just adorable! Shawnee is full of personality and such a character Her little face is joyful just seeing someone she knows, almost a smile! She loves attention and is very affectionate with someone who is patient. She is a wonderful companion and would love going on walks, car rides and spending time at home with someone who enjoys an easy going, lovely, soft-natured girl. She is a strong female BC with other dogs so best as a solo dog. Her previous life was a breeding female, having a couple litters, living with a few other Border Collies in PA. She originally came from Nebraska. She is about 40 pounds and good with cats. She will be placed in an adult home. She requires a fenced yard


Shawnee has so much personality, it's hard to capture in pictures - here are some fun videos.

Willow Summary:
 - solo dog ok
 - fenced yard required

    




Special thanks to Liz Boucher & Peg Fuller for getting her to GHF. And as always, a big thanks to Jane Locacio for organizing our transports making it possible for the dogs to be in safe hands.
Willow's Angel
-Happy Birthday to Kristen Dacey!
-Kathy & Mike Hoar, Tierney, and Zach (GHF Alum)
-Peg and Mike Fuller

WILLOW: A 5 year old Border Collie, Willow is full of spunk, sass and has a blast in life, joyfully bounding into all the action! She is a hoot! Willow loves to play ball and race around with any toy, entertaining herself. She also loves people, literally one of the friendliest girls we’ve seen. Never a bad day, this outgoing energetic girl is all fun! Willow is quite a cuddler but she also enjoys exploring outside with her person nearby. A classic female BC, she keeps a watchful eye on all the outside activity in her yard. Willow is good with cats and about 45 pounds. She is very people oriented so would be happiest as a solo dog plus with other dogs, she can be extremely bossy and controlling, making it best for her to be the center of attention. She is overcoming food allergies from the Beneful dog food that didn’t agree with her( a very typical problem with this food). Willow requires a fenced yard.


Ace Summary:
 - solo dog
 - fenced yard required
 - NO cats

ACE: A 6 year old Border Collie, Ace is a gentle guy who turns to people for reassurance, sweetly by your side. Wherever you go for a walk outside, he’s right there, step by step. He is friendly and loves attention, happy to be with someone. Ace will need a patient guardian who doesn’t rush him into new situations since he lived a pretty sheltered life in a dog ‘house’ outside rather than in the home. He is adjusting beautifully, loving his soft bed and new toys, really an easy guy to enjoy. He loves to go for walks and is enjoying new experiences. Ace doesn’t demand much except kindness and will nudge you for another touch. He is not good with cats and about 45 pounds. Ace & Arlo came to GHF from PA since both were escaping the chain link pen where they were confined. Ace is camera shy so his pictures reflect that. He requires a fenced yard.

Special thanks to Peg Fuller for getting them safely to GHF and Marybeth Powers for handling the intake process.

Murphy Summary:
 - solo dog
 - fenced yard required
 - NO cats

    




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


Special thanks to all who helped Murphy land at GHF: Susan Monnelly, Olivia Tandon,  Kathy & Jim Milavec, Debbie Lind, Linda Wood & Kimberly Meyerer and Jane Locacio.

ANA is from the Indiana confiscation (click here)
She will only be placed:
 - with a bc savvy adopter due to her skittish nature
 - in an adult ONLY home
 - other bc friends and fenced yard is REQUIRED

    



Ana's Angels
-Matthew & Nicole Belk, in loving memory of Lexi
-Mike & Nina Marciniszyn, in honor of the puppy mill BC’s who deserve a great life!
-Mike &Kathy Hoar, Tierney, and Zach (GHF Alum)

ANA: A petite 6 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.

Special thanks to Anne Cattaneo for fostering Ana in Vermont.


Chip Summary:
 
 - BC friend or solo dog
  - fenced yard required

    




Chip's Angels
-
Chrysler Szarlan, in loving memory of BoBo, Charming, and Showmi
-Judy Novak and Robert Verboski
CHIP: A 7 year old Border Collie, Chip is a great guy with a wonderful nature to ‘go with the flow’ and jump into the fun. He is a great hiking partner with solid recall once he knows you and quite the athlete, a joy to watch run. In true BC fashion, he’s a herder with other dogs but not pushy about, just enjoying the like-minded companionship. Chip loves people and blossoms when someone is with him a great deal though he can quietly settle inside once in a routine. He is smart and active but not overly intense since he’s at that perfect age where Border Collies settle down well. Smart, sweet and active, Chip is a wonderful BC. He is good with cats and about 40 pounds. Chip came to GHF through one our volunteers who met the former CT guardian who no longer wanted to care for him. Special thanks to Ann Gardner for caring for Chip so he could find a new life. He requires a fenced yard

Chip had a serious gum disease which meant he had to have all his teeth removed, much like a human with gum disease. He clearly could care less about his new situation. The adjustment that makes sense is soaking his food so it’s easier for him.  He used to play a lot of ball games so we assume without the painful gums he was experiencing, he’ll be doing that again soon. His original guardian was going to euthanize him for this issue but fortunately, one of our volunteers stepped in to help Chip.  He’s the happiest guy, teeth or no teeth!



Capp Summary:
 
- fenced yard REQUIRED
 - special needs

    





Capp can track a rolled ball passing 2-3 feet in front of him outside and inside, he’ll lay down with his front paws together and the ball sitting on top and he’ll roll or chomp on it. He will often play with the ball on his own inside!
 
Capp's Angels
-from Doc, Rosie, Pete, and Renate

-Peg and Mike Fuller

CAPP: An 8 year old Border Collie, Capp is a lovely guy, gentle and mellow, partly because of his compromised eye sight. He is almost totally blind though can still navigate outside in a big yard with trees, managing around them, being directed verbally by someone he knows. He loves to explore and will happily accompany his person for a jaunt around, being a very content Border Collie. Cornell ophthalmology confirmed Capp has Progressive Retinal Atrophy and cataracts so has no use of one eye and some ability to see shadows in the other eye. Eventually, he will loose all his sight.

For the last two years, he was herding cows on a farm in NY, living in the barn and did a great job moving the cows along with a couple other herding dogs. Prior to that, he lived in a home, sleeping in the bed of his first guardian, a beloved companion. Capp has experienced both worlds and now finds himself in rescue hopefully about to start another journey with someone new. He is a bit worried meeting strangers so will need patient guardians who don’t rush him. Being approached too quickly makes him want to move away but once a person sits down and calls him over, he will come and ask for attention. A calmer household would be best for him. Capp is fine with cats and good with submissive dogs who don’t overwhelm him. As you would expect, his world is changing so easy dogs and easy people help him feel more secure. Capp is about 50 pounds and requires a fenced yard.


Capp loves his toy raccon so much, he carries it around all the time and of course, right to bed, too!

FAITH  needs Angels - click here for more info
Faith's Angels
-Nancy & Greg Vorbach & GHF alum, Lupa
-
Judy Novak and Robert Verboski
-In loving memory of Annie Laurie from Helen Harrop and Lucy Maud

FAITH: A 3 year old Border Collie, Faith has been given that name by GHF for many reasons…
  • we have faith she will truly survive and flourish…
  • we have faith she will still believe people are good…
  • we have faith that she crossed our paths just in time to save her life…

According to the vet seeing Faith after the police pulled her, she had only days to live. Faith was stuck in the basement of a home where the guardian died in January and Faith was discovered in April. No food, no water, no way to survive…only FAITH.

This lovely natured girl is literally a bag of bones and will take months to regain her weight as well as good health. We are working carefully to ease her back to proper diet. The previous guardian and related family members bred BC’s, fighting pitbulls and fighting chickens so was not considered animal friendly by the local Pittsburgh shelter or Animal Control.

While this odd situation is sadly upsetting, we have Faith in our care and know she has a special life ahead, with someone who cherishes her. Faith and Victor, were both confiscated from the home by Police who kindly reached out to GHF for help. We’ll update her bio as time goes on.

Special thanks to Ellen & Andy Simcik who are fostering Faith


VICTOR needs an Angel - click here for more info
Victor Summary:
 - fenced yard required

    


VIC (VICTOR!) is a 3 year old Border Collie aptly named because he survived against all odds. His previous guardian died in January, leaving Vic left outside in the yard to fend for himself. Victor did just that, sliding under the fence and finding food and water so when police came to check on the house, he was in relatively good shape (and back within the fence). The other Border Collie, Faith, did not fare as well, stuck in the basement for three months. (see Faith’s bio) We want to give Vic some time to adjust, rebalance and connect to people who are consistently caring for him properly. He’s a sweet guy with a curious nature but also a bit skittish right now. He is about 45 pounds and not yet tested on cats. We’ll update his bio as time unfolds. The previous guardian and related family members bred BC’s, fighting pitbulls and fighting chickens so was not considered animal friendly by the local Pittsburgh shelter or Animal Control.

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!

SHAYLA needs an Angel - click here for more info
Shayla Summary:
 - bc friend required
 - fenced yard required

    



SHAYLA: A 3 year old Border Collie, Shayla is a pretty girl with a sweet nature but also skittish about new things and this big change in her life right now. We’re going to give her some time to adjust to GHF and all the people and see how she unfolds. This timid trait has been her nature since her previous guardians obtained her a year ago, supposedly from an abusive situation. She has been living with a family in PA in a condo setting and done well but they could not have two dogs so relinquished her to the Farm. We are hoping she will do well having a ‘mentor’ Border Collie and a quieter environment. She is about 40 pounds and good with cats.

Special thanks to Paula & Jack Branaird for helping transport Shayla to rescue.

CARSEN needs an Angel - click here for more info
Carsen Summary:
 - tennis balls, soccer balls - required

    



CARSEN: A 4 year old Border Collie, Carsen is a focused ball boy! He just loves toss after toss after toss and he’s quite the athlete. His fun, classic BC nature is easy to see but this sweet guy deserves some time to balance out with more love and attention before heading off to a new home and everyone at GHF is determined to shower him with love as well as ball play! While he has a super sweet, great nature, he’s been neglected alone for almost 2 years. Seems the previous guardian sold his home and abandoned Carsen in an outside kennel in South Jersey, even though the new buyer didn’t want him. He’s been underfed and certainly lacked human attention, a sad situation.  Thankfully, the vet in NJ that helps with many GHF dogs heard about him and took the steps to get us involved. We are so thankful that Carsen can now rebuild a life that is all about his needs…he is quite an amazing sweetheart, no matter what was inflicted upon him. He has about 15 pounds to gain and is good with cats.


Special thanks to Cindy Rollins, Paula & Jack Branaird for making sure Carsen made it to rescue.

CHLOE needs an Angel - click here for more info
Chloe Summary:
 - fenced yard required
 - NO cats
 - solo dog or submissive male

    


Special thanks to Paula & Jack Branaird for helping Chloe land at GHF safely
CHLOE: An 8 1/2 year old Border Collie mix, Chloe is a gentle soul with the sweetest nature. She’s what we call a ‘soft dog’, now trying to make sense of a big change in her life. She is finding her way, step by step, starting to be curious about the Farm and all the new people. She loves playing catch and will surely blossom given some time.  She lived with children but became anxious with the chaos of the 2 year old, so her previous guardians felt she needed a quieter life.  She is about 40 pounds and is not good with cats. Chloe was relinquished to GHF from her Maryland home.  We’ll update her bio as she unwinds

A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO OUR MONTHLY DONORS
