This is a long story made short. We have had NorCal Collie Rescue dogs for over 25 years.
Jack, our 97-pound male, died about 8 months ago.  This was the first time, over 45 years
ago we were without a collie and NorCal Collie Rescue simply had no candidates for us.
About a month ago, NCR let us know of a young rescue collie available in Lindsay, CA,
south of Visalia.

We contacted Central California Rescue Railroad (CCRR) and rushed down to meet this
wonderful dog.  Thanks to NCR and CCRR we adopted the female rough collie and couldn’t
be happier.

We've only had Chacha for a month, so I don't have a lot to relate to except that Chacha
loves to climb into laps and sleeps on our beds. She rarely "speaks" and likes human
contact.  One can see from the pictures that she is gorgeous and gentle.

This is Reno Shadow and the Wynns adopted him officially as of March 27th. He is doing
great and loves his Nor Cal Sheltie Rescue brother !

Blue was adopted by the Ephraims in 2023 after they lost their beloved Collie, Wiley.  Blue had
suffered a loss of his beloved owner as well.  He was a “foster fail” within minutes of meeting them -
they just knew he was the special soul they needed to mend their broken hearts.  He is a unique
Sable Merle with one blue eye and one eye that is half blue and half brown, but his greatest quality is
his endless capacity to love.  He greets everyone with a big Collie “smile” and a “hug,” and he
absolutely loves cuddles in bed and on the couch.  He will happily curl up with you for hours and has
never met a couch, pillow, or blanket he didn’t love!  Blue is a happy, confident, playful guy who likes
to explore San Francisco and bark at seagulls with his “butler” Jason, but is equally happy playing
with toys on the lawn in the suburbs or chasing squirrels and deer in Sonoma.  The Ephraims are so
happy that Blue the Love Bug is in their lives.  Blue saved them as much as they saved him.
