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.

Riley is 2 years old, neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.   He is very sweet, social and non-aggressive with people and dogs.  He is housebroken, crate trained and has basic obedience.  However, he is leash reactive - squirrels, birds, bikes, barking dogs -- he pulls and barks back.  He is not aggressive reactive, he just wants to play.  This is an area that his new family will have to commit to working on with him.  He loves to cuddle and snuggle BUT when he gets the zoomies, there is no surface left untouched.  He will hurdle the sofa and rebound off the wall and land wherever - a complete clown and a bull in a china shop.  If you have an issue with pets on the furniture - he is not your guy. 

He would not do well with a family with small children as he would bowl them over in his playful enthusiasm.  However, kids over 8 would be a great fit for him. His previous owner said he is ok with cats but we have discovered that  he is a chaser so it would take patience and slow integration to be successful.   He does have some experience at Rally Dog Sports and has ribboned in the sport so it would be wonderful if his new family wanted to continue working with him but not a deal breaker for placement.  We are looking for a family that is active and home much of the day (works from home, stay at home mom, kids etc).  Preferably one with other dogs for playful interaction.  A family that is committed to continuing his training in the most positive ways.  He is young and full of energy but he wants to please and be with his people. This guy will be the PERFECT collie to the right family in time. 

Adoption Fee is $400

If you would like to be considered to adopt Riley, you must live in Northern California and have a fenced yard.  To apply please complete an online application.

Meet Cooper!  This sweet 10 year old Rough Collie boy is ready for his furever home!

Cooper is neutered, house trained and current on all vaccinations.  Cooper has a very sweet, calm, easy going personality and gets along with everybody and everything, including cats.  He loves to lounge around on a soft dog bed and moseys to greet you for a hug with his tail wagging when you walk in the door. Without fail, he always gives hugs back by leaning his forehead gently against you. Cooper is also the most adorable head tilter when you talk to him, with his floppy ears, he is a site to behold.

Cooper’s ideal day is at home with a comfy bed to relax on…or lounging on the lawn warming up in the sunshine on a beautiful day.  He doesn’t manage stairs very well and would do well in a hope with primary residence on the main floor.
Cooper, tail wagging is always happy to meet your friends and family  when they come to visit.
Coopers eyes do not naturally produce tears and therefore will need twice daily eye medicines for the rest of his life, which he is very cooperative in taking.  He also suffers from allergies and will need once a day Apoquel indefinitely.  Cooper was debarked by his breeder and therefore has a very quiet/muted bark on the rare occurrence he does bark.  Cooper would probably appreciate it if there were no other frisky/rambunctious pets in his forever home and although he is good children, he would probably do best with children over the age of 8. 

If you would like to be considered to adopt Cooper, please complete and online application which can be found HERE. If you already have an application on file but would like to find out more information on Cooper please email  jeff.jackie.collierescue@gmail.com.
