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
Autumn is a 6 ½ year old, rough, sable female.  She is a BIG girl weighing in at 82 lbs ….. and not really overweight.  She is spayed, HW negative and up to date on her vaccinations.  She is a little shy when she is first introduced but is a loving, sweet, sensitive soul that wants give and get love from her family.  She is not a Velcro collie but is ever attentive and over-the-moon happy when she is shown affection.  She is a mellow, laid back, couch potato but does enjoys short walks and a romp in the yard.  She gets along well with other dogs but doesn’t typically play with them.  She is good with cats. She is housebroken. While she walks well on a leash, she as never been trained.  She is eager to please and is a fast learner so she will quickly learn what is expected of her.  Her new family must be willing provide obedience training.  She does have a fear of hardwood and tile floors as well as stairs and will restrict herself to a carpeted area rather than walk across a hard-surfaced floor or climb stairs, so we are looking for a family that has carpet throughout their living spaces and is in a primarily single story home.  Although she is generally healthy, she does have collie nose which will need management.  Additionally, she has a limp in her front left shoulder (we don’t know the cause) she is now taking NSAID’s and the limp is less pronounced.  Because of her mobility issues, she will need a family that can lift her into the car or a low profile car she can easily be hoisted into.  Once in the car, she does travel well.  Some of these issues may make you think twice about considering Autumn for adoption, but she is a gem and keeper and she deserves a very special, loving home! 

To be considered for adoption, please complete an online adoption application.  You must live in Northern California and have a fenced yard.  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.
Sierra is a 2 ½ year old, rough tri female.  She is spayed, heartworm negative and up to date on her vaccinations. Sierra has had obedience training and knows most basic commands, travels well in the car and will walk or jog with you on leash.  Sierra loves her people is devoted, loyal and completely velco. As a matter of fact, she doesn’t like to be separated from you and will let you know! She is very social and loves everyone - adults, kids, dogs and cats. She is very good with kids and loves to bring her toys to children to play with her.  Sierra would do well with another young, active, easy going dog that will play with her as much and as often as possible.   While she likes cats, she does want to play with them and will chase them at every opportunity so if this is a problem for you, or your cat - Sierra isn’t the right fit for you. She is reactive to bikes, strollers, roller skates, skateboards -- anything with wheels and will need a family that is willing to work with her and be able to manage her when she unexpectedly is exposed to them.  Sierra is very vocal, so is not a dog that can be left outside for long periods of time while her family is gone. She will bark loud and long if left outside to her own devices all day long. She will need to be with a family that has someone home much of the day to interact with her and let her out as necessary.   Sierra was a loved member of her last family and was welcomed on the couch and bed, so we are hoping her new family will allow her the same privileges. She likes to cuddle with her people and is very sweet girl. She sleeps soundly through the night but -- is an early riser. 

To be considered for adoption you must complete an online application, live in Northern California and have a fenced yard. 

She is currently being fostered in Gilroy, CA. 

Her adoption fee is $350.

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
