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.
Autumn is a big, sweet, loving, laid back Teddy Bear.  She is 6 ½ years old, spayed, HW negative, up to date on her shots, housebroken, has a magnificent sable coat which she loves to have brushed, and has a heart that is bigger than her 78 lbs. She can be a little shy at first but soon warms up and is over-the-moon happy when shown affection.  While she does not know basic commands, her manners are perfect and a little training will formalize those behaviors.  She walks well on a leash right by her person’s side and waits for her person to go thru doors first.  She is learning how to get into a car but will need help if the car is high.  She gets along well with other dogs and loves her kitty friends.  She is non-reactive to other dogs on walks (which she loves).  She is very bright, eager to please, and will quickly learn her new family’s routine and what is expected of her.  While not a Velcro dog, she is always attentive to where her family is and wants to be near them.  Although generally healthy, she does have Collie Nose which is responding to medication and sometimes a slight limp which doesn’t bother her.  There are a lot of experiences that are new to her - like stairs, hardwood floors, going into stores and restaurants, the big outside world in general, but she is up for those adventures and is rapidly gaining confidence and taking pleasure in such outings.  However, she is just as happy to be lounging around at home with her family.  She just wants to give love and get love back.  One warning - this gentle giant will spoil you for any other Collie because she is about as perfect as a Collie gets - and we all know how incredible that is!

To be considered for adoption you must have a fenced yard and live in Northern California. 

To be considered for adoption, please complete an online adoption application

Other considerations are a single story, carpeted home and a willingness to train her and manage her medical issues.

She is being fostered in Morgan Hill, CA. 

Adoption fee is $250.00.
Sari is a 9 year old, small Female Collie; approximately 46 lbs.  She has recently been spayed and did have a mammary tumor removed.  She also had her teeth cleaned and had a lower incisor pulled, but none of this has phased her and she is a sweet little girl.  She needs to know where you are and will go in search of you if she can’t find you right away.

She is good with people and very social.  She is interested in other dogs, particularly dogs that are younger than she is and she will initiate play.  She appears to be somewhat prey driven, particularly with birds, but a call to her or a distraction changes that immediately.  She is housebroken and will let you know when she needs to go outside.

She rides well in the car but you may have to help lift her in and out, unless you have a low car.  She has some toys but doesn’t seem to know how to play with them, even though she will sleep with one of them if it is close to her.

She came to us having had her coat shaved but it is growing out and she is a mahogany sable; lovely girl.

To be considered for adoption of Sari, please complete an Online Adoption Application.  You must live in Northern California and have a fenced yard.

She is being fostered in Rio Vista, CA.

Adoption fee is $200.00
Tiffany is a pure bred, rough, mahogany sable collie. Tiffany was rescued from a shelter in Taiwan. She had been found stray so we don’t have any information of her previous life. We estimate that she is around 8 or 9. Possibly kept in a crate or cage because she has some weakness in her rear end. We are hoping that will improve with exercise.

Tiffany is spayed, UTD on all vaccinations, treated for heart worm, has had a dental and is microchipped.

Tiffany is the ultimate sweetheart. She loves everyone, other dogs big and small, cats, kids, adults, goats, horses, and chickens. She is laid back but not lazy. She enjoys exploring my pasture and follows me around in the house. She doesn’t want to miss out on anything.  She loves toys and has begun to show interest in playing with my other collies. She is such a well adjusted girl, and walks very nicely and calmly on leash. She is crate trained.

She should not be in a home where she would need to manage stairs. And even though she loves kids, because she is an older girl, I’m hoping she can have a home where children visit but don’t live in the home, or an adult home is fine. She would love to have a mild mannered dog friend and or cat.

Northern California residents only. No unprotected pools. Please submit our online adoption application if you think you have the perfect home for Tiffany.
