Available Collies

Listed below are TCCR collies presently in the care of foster homes. These collies are under review for fitness and health. While every attempt is made to maintain and update the available collie profiles, TCCR cannot guarantee the availability or suitability of a collie for interested parties. Prior to adopting a TCCR collie, 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.

(adoption pending)  Buddy is an 8 year old male smooth collie.  He comes when you call him, and interacts with the family.  Buddy comes up to you with a wagging tail, waiting for you to pet him, or give him a good scratch between the ears.   He has come a long way in a short time.  He no longer hides shyly in the background, but enjoys being part of the family.  When he hears the opening of the treat jar, he hurries into the kitchen with the other collies ready to claim his prize. 

When he first came to TCCR, Buddy shied away from my hand and wouldn't take a treat.  He has made a complete turnaround in that area.  Buddy enjoys playing outside and running with my other collies, he has even learned what dog toys are for by watching the other collies.  He is one smart and sweet boy.  He proudly walks around with 'his' toy.  Buddy spent his life as an outside dog.  He now enjoys the comforts of being in a home. He is house broken and has very good inside manners.

Buddy is a very gentle and sensitive soul. He would make an excellent companion, and with a little time and patience will get used to a new home. 

If you have room in your heart and home please have an approved application and contact Buddy's foster mom Mary@collierescue.com.

Current Status: Available with Restrictions
Angus is male, 2 years old, neutered, tri-colored, smooth collie. He has spent most of his life before Tri-County Collie Rescue living in a crate. Angus is, therefore, a puppy both chronologically and socially.

Angus is quite smart and responds very well to routine. He is very high energy and requires daily long walks and supervised play time. He gets along well with other dogs but can be wary of people when first meeting them.

Applicants for Angus must be able to provide a home where (1) he will not be crated; (2) where someone will be at home with him most of the time and (3) he has another dog living with him.

He needs an energetic home, willing to continue his training and education as well as work on socialization in a patient fashion.

If you are interested in Angus and can fulfill the above requirements, please contact CS@collierescue.com
