CRLNE is pleased to announce that several collies from the group we rescued in February of this year are almost ready to go to their new homes! These collies have been groomed and thoroughly vetted including vaccinations, treated for heartworm (if appropriate), had their teeth cleaned (if needed), and spayed or neutered. We are presenting them in a group, as these collies have some similar needs.
While we recognize their individual personalities, they will all need:

  • a quiet home
  • a fenced yard (as they may be a flight risk)
  • a commitment to continued training
  • someone experienced in dealing with an anxious collie

Also, most of these collies are more comfortable with women and will need to be de-sensitized to a male presence.

More about Sam, pictured above:
Sam is a very handsome 3-year-old blue merle smooth collie. He is up to date on all his vaccines, is neutered, and has been treated for heart worm. Sam is crate trained, housebroken, and good with cats and other dogs. Sam needs a fenced yard and a quiet home, as strange noises bother him. Sam does stairs and loves toys. Sam's foster mom describes him as a collie who loves to curl up with you (and he does snore!) She says he’s a couch potato and steals treats. When asked for one word to describe Sam his foster mom said "smooshie"! We're still looking for a definition of that one!

More about Finnie, pictured above:
Finnie is a handsome 3-year-old neutered male tri color smooth collie. Finnie is a bit anxious and needs a quiet home. He also needs a patient adopter who is committed to working with him. Finnie has overcome his fear of leaving the backyard and has learned the fun of going for a walk with his foster sister. Foster mom tells us that all she has to do is pick up the leash and his tail starts wagging and he starts barking in joy to go for a walk!

More about Henry, pictured above:
Henry is a very handsome smooth collie with a personality to match his good looks. His foster mom says he is quite the charmer and is an absolute "Love Bug”! Henry is a 5-year-old smooth sable collie who is housetrained, good on a leash, and is crate trained too. Henry loves toys, especially the ones with a squeaker in them! Henry just loves to be close to his people. He does a few stairs but is capable of learning to do a full flight. Henry is good with children and cats. Sudden sounds startle him, so a quieter home will be best. Henry loves marrow bones and peanut butter. He is current on all his vaccines, neutered, and will be groomed before adoption. He does require a fenced yard.


The collies pictured here are in the range of 3-5 years old. They have exhibited a wonderful temperament but are fearful inside a house, as the sounds we humans are accustomed to can be scary to them. Our foster homes have begun to slowly introduce them to household life and sounds, but it is an ongoing process. 

If you have an interest in a specific collie, the very first step is to complete our application (available for download at crlne.org or by mail by calling 800-296-3265) to start the process. Thank you for your interest in CRLNE and these beautiful smooth collies. We would also like to thank our foster homes and everyone who has assisted in the rescue and care of these collies!


Freya is a 2 and 1/2-year-old white factored tri-color collie. Freya is 52 pounds and is crate- and house- trained. Freya is spayed and is current on all her vaccinations. Her foster mom tells us that an adult household would be best for her. Freya has made tremendous progress in foster care however, she requires a special adopter. Freya would like to be adopted by someone who is patient and has experience with shy, anxious collies and has a quiet home. Freya has learned the joy of barking with her foster sisters! She has not shown any interest in small animals or cats. Freya knows some verbal and hand commands. Freya does require a fence. It would also be great if Freya was with another confident dog to show her the ropes.





This pretty girl is Emma, a 3-year-old spayed female now under evaluation in her foster home. Emma is a little unsure of new situations but is really beginning to blossom in her new environment. She is housetrained and loves her crate. Emma gets along well with other dogs and enjoys being part of a pack. She enjoys long walks, is leash trained, and loves to play. She would be best in a house without young children. A fenced yard is a must. If you are interested in adopting Emma, please fill out an application, downloadable from our website at collierescueleague.org, or call us to receive an application by mail (800-296-3265).



Stevie (L) and Lyndsey (R)

Stevie and Lyndsey (as in Stevie Nicks and Lyndsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac) are two female collies currently available for adoption. We believe that these two collies need to spend their future together. Stevie is a sable rough and Lyndsey is a blue merle smooth. Both of these beautiful collies are approximately 4 years old. They have been spayed and are current on all vaccines. They are both crate and house trained, and are good with cats. They require a fenced yard. We believe the adopter should be committed to obedience training to continue to build their self-confidence. A home with older children is suggested, as these collies don’t have much experience with the little ones. 

Daisy Mae  

Daisy Mae (as she is known) is an 18-month-old sable female collie. Daisy is a small collie at 32 pounds but is big on personality. She is current on all her vaccines and has been spayed. Daisy is an active young lady who loves to go to the park and run. She is crate trained and is house trained. Daisy is fine with other dogs and cats. She requires a fenced yard.
