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.
Emma is ready to find her forever homes. She came into rescue in March morbidly obese. She could barely walk. She's lost about 20 pounds and has ten or so more to go. She has some issues due to her past weight that will need ongoing monitoring and medications, but she is an absolute sweetheart. She loves cats. She adores cats. And they love her. She gets along well with all. She is no pushover, though. She lets the other dogs in her foster home know her boundaries, and even the more aggressive ones have never bothered her. She was shaved to the skin before arriving, but her coat is beginning to come back in. She is 9 years young. She is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on all vaccinations. Available only to a home in Northern California.

Emma is a very special collie. She needs someone who is equally as special. If you are interested in Emma, please put in an
application or email charlene@calcollierescue.org.

Mr. Pepper
11/11/14 update: Pepper has gained weight and now is at a healthy weight. He's quieted down a lot. Just needs a few basic lessons and will be a perfect family or companion dog. He is fine with all dogs. Is submissive, even to the Chihuahua. He walks well on leash, although not at a heel, but he is not a puller.  He shows a lot of youngster behavior.  Is probably closer to two years old. He is okay with cats, although he will show interest in chasing if one runs.  He's perfectly fine with one of my cats who does not run. If adopter has cats, will need to reinforce to not chase.


Pepper is a collie mix who was found up past Berry Creek near the Plumas National Forest. He came in quite underweight at 35 lbs. We believe he’s possibly a mix of one or more of the following breeds: collie/border collie/sheltie/aussie. He’s estimated to be between 2-4 years old.

He’s been in quarantine for a nasty case of kennel cough, but he was neutered last week and is ready to find his forever home. He needs a family who knows the joys and challenges of living with a smart herding dog and will have a solid game plan in place to teach him all he’ll need to know to live in harmony with his new family.

He will learn quickly. He’s very loving. He’ll do well with other dogs. He has not been fully tested with cats, but hope to get that done in the next week. He’ll be good with children, but due to exuberant jumping (at this time), he can not be adopted to a family with children under eight.

He’s neutered, microchipped, HW tested negative, and vaccinated. All he needs is training and a family who will love this bundle of love forever!
