It's A Girl!

The Lockwood family has a new member and her name is Gracie. We adopted Gracie from Glen Highland Border Collie Rescue Farm.  She is about 4 months old and is so smart and sweet (doesn't every puppy parent say that).  Since our beloved Australian Cattle Dog, Maia passed away a year ago December something has been missing in our family.  After 6 months of watching Glen Highland’s website I was looking for a dog I thought would say something to me.  And then there she was!
Border Collie's are a herding dog breed developed for herding livestock, especially sheep.  Its intelligence has been observed as having an intuitive quality that goes well beyond basic instinct and are excellent companion animals.  Typically extremely energetic, acrobatic, and athletic, they frequently compete with great success in dog sports, in addition to their success in sheepdog trials, and are often cited as the most intelligent of all dogs. 
Glen Highland Farm has rescued more 1500 Border Collie's since 2001.  And every summer, up to thirty different Border Collies participate in Camp Border Collie for Kids, a unique learning program for at risk inner-city children from  the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn and Newark, NJ. Each child is paired with a rescue dog to discover a gentle, positive approach to handling and training. Coming from horrific cultural violence, these children transform their understanding of how to care for and love a dog that clearly will love them back if treated properly.

We are processing Gracie's ability and interest in how she wants to contribute to our family and farm.

She is so curious about her new surroundings.
She is such a joy!  Check back to watch her take on new adventures.
