Available Collies and Shelties

Listed below are TCCR's Collies and Shelties presently in the care of foster homes. These Collies and Shelties are under review for fitness and health. While every attempt is made to maintain and update the available Collie and Sheltie profiles, TCCR cannot guarantee the availability or suitability of a Collie or Sheltie for interested parties. Prior to adopting a TCCR Collie or Sheltie, an application must be completed and approved. Interested families are encouraged to fill out an application as soon as possible.
TCCR has many dogs that do not make it to the webpage. That is because people who already have an active application with TCCR are given first chance at dogs as they come in. Fortunately, many dogs are adopted shortly after coming into the program. If you are interested in adopting a Collie or Sheltie from TCCR, please submit your application HERE.

"Desmond" (aka:  "Desi or Des") is a 7 year old Sable colored Rough Collie. He spent his first seven years with a senior gentleman who passed away suddenly,  leaving him an 'orphan' if you will, and homeless.  Desi is tall, long, and weighs 90 pounds.  He is NOT overweight.  He is a very smart, sweet, loving, and playful boy who is housetrained, crate trained and gorgeous!  He is also an excellent watchdog.


Desi needs to be your only dog.  He does not like other dogs.  He is great on the leash, doesn't pull, sits, lies down, shakes hands, and is working on other commands.  He loves children.  Desi loves to go for walks, as well as rides in the car.  He even seems to know what happens at the drive thru at McDonalds!  He was sound asleep in the back of the vehicle until we pulled through the line to collect MY food, he popped up and put his head to the window, expecting his share.  Although it was very cute, he didn’t get any. :-(

Desi will not be able to be off leash, go to a dog park, doggie day care, nor be contained by an underground fence.  If you think Desi might fit into your lifestyle, please contact his foster mom at: beth@collierescue.com
