Collies Available for Adoption

Please read important information for prospective adopters at the bottom of this page!

Not all NorCal collies are listed on this page. We often work from a waiting list. If you are interested in adopting a collie, please send in an application[Click Here].  It often takes time to match each collie with just the right forever home.  Thank you for your patience.
Jerry has been waiting a long time and we just realized that you may have thought he was  adoption pending!  Our mistake.  Jerry is still waiting for his forever home!  He is bright, fun amusing and full of life. He is eager to please.

Jerry is a 2 year old collie mix.

He is neutered, Microchipped and vaccinated.  Walks well on leash. Very sweet and playful and athletic. House trained.

He would like a home with children, and another dog to play with.  But even though he is doing better with cats, it might be best that he not be placed with cats.

Jerry is a good listener. He has had months of learning at his foster home, and since he has been separated from his brother he is doing very well.  He is young and healthy.


If you are interested in Jerry, and you live in Northern California, please fill out and submit our adoption application.

His adoption fee will be $200

Sammy’s aging family could no longer give him the care he needed.  Sammy is an active 4 year old, healthy, neutered male, who was an outside dog before coming to NCR.  He is learning "inside” behaviors is doing very well.  He is housebroken.  He likes to be inside most of the time now with freedom to go outside. He can be trusted to be alone in the house without getting into things and gets along with the other dogs in the household (another Collie and 2 smaller dogs). He loves people, even strangers.  He is learning to walk politely on a lease, but additional training with his new family would provide a good bonding experience.

Because he is young and active, the ideal home for Sammy would be an active family with older children.  Other large dogs who are not aggressive are fine, but Sammy’s attractions to cats is constant.  He is not aggressive towards cats, but a home without the “temptation to chase the cat” would be ideal for him.

If you are interested in adopting Sammy and have a completed adoption application on file, please email Jackie Berton at jackie@calcollierescue.org or call 559-473-7329 . If you do not currently have an application on file with us and would like to be considered, please complete an online application.  You must live in Northern California and have a fenced yard. 

Sammy’s adoption fee is $350.00.

Some of you may remember Selene who we rescued from Korea a year ago.  Well she was adopted, but  has been returned due to being reactive towards other dogs while on leash so we put her through 6 weeks of practically 24/7 leash work.  She has improved by leaps and bounds, but we feel that she needs a home that is familure with this behavior and will make sure her training is kept up.

Selene is a beauty.  She is a merle headed white, 5 to 7 year old spayed female, pure bred collie.  She is up to date on all of her shots, blood work, heart worm test, dental cleaning, and micro chipped etc. Every thing is done and she is healthy. Selene was positive for heart worm when she was in Korea, but was treated for it there and is completely cured.

Selene does get along fine with the other collies in her foster home. And she lived with  2 different small dogs in this past year as well.  But we think this time we will place her as an only dog.  She is fine with cats, but she is overly interested when she first meets them, and will bark at them at first and even chase them if they run like most dogs will, but she wont ever hurt them. She can also be food aggressive at times with other dogs, as she was malnourished, and probably had to fight for what little food she got in Korea.   We think she should not be placed in a home with children because of her reactiveness.  She does best in a calm environment, with a mature person to love on her, and will continue to work with a trainer, or who knows how to provide it themselves. She is house trained and is very well mannered in the house. She responds very well to positive reinforcement training.  She is too sanative to be corrected and would not do well with harsh corrections. She knows basic commands and is very polite with people.

Selene loves to be cuddled. She is a typical sweet, sensitive, collie that loves people.

If you would like to be considered to adopt Selene please fill out our adoption application and be sure to put her name in the correct field.

Northern Ca. Residents only, and only child safe pools.

This sweet girl we think is a collie aussie mix. Her name is Cinnamon. She is 2 years old and about 55 lbs. She has been shaved, but you can see by the long hair they left at the end of her tail, that she is long coated, or a rough we would call it.

She was surrendered to a shelter. Shelter asked if we would pull her as she was very fearful in the shelter. When she got to her foster home she remained fearful for about a day. When she warmed up she was a different dog. Just the sweetest, and most affectionate girl. She was still fearful of the other dogs in the foster home so was kept separate. Upon evaluation I discovered she is obedience trained! Sits, downs, stays, comes and even will hand you her paw, and if you ask for her other paw she will hand you that too! Everyday I'm finding out more skills she knows.

She did pull at first, but with a little leash work is doing much better. She automatically sits for you to put her leash on and she will wait to go through the door until you say "ok". She is crate trained too!

She loves to play with stuffed toys. She is calm in nature. Not hyper, but playful.  She is house trained and has very good house manors. She does love to lay on the couch though. I gave her a bath and trimmed her nails and she was good as gold.

Cinnamon is spayed and will be up to date on shots, and micro chipped.

Cinnamon is a special girl. So far she seems fearful and reactive to strangers and strange dogs. She reacts by barking.  She warms up quickly to women, but is more untrusting of men.

Cinnamon is very smart and learns very quickly. She needs a calm experienced dog person to teach her to trust. She has high prey drive so would not be good with cats. Oh and she has one blue eye.

If you think you have the right home for Cinnamon please submit our adoption application.
