    I expect they will find as good homes as expensive pups do. Farm collies are usually very cheap though never seen them totally free before.

    Why is the girl more important.

    but so could anyone with any bitch puppy. No money in breeding collies so it isnt very likely. Lets hope they all go to some sort of working home.

    Quite often dogs who go to homes for free are cared for exactly the same as the dogs that are paid for....

    Not everyone in the world wants to get a dog for free then neglect it... And not all people that give dogs away free, give them to just anyone. For all you know this person giving these pups away maybe vetting the homes they go to...

    Giving away dogs free may just help people who have unexpectedly lost a dog in unfortunate circumstances and are not in a situ where they can splash out on a dog...

    When I was a kid a dog jumped into our garden and raped our colliex GSD, (we had a 6' fence) the vet had to come out and seperate them. When she had the pups.. (male was a rough collie) we gave them away free. They got lovely homes.. Well cared for and owners kept in touch with us for years and were so greatful of the little bundles of joy...

    Goodluck to all the puppies and may they have a long happy life. xxx

    I'm going to sound just like my mother now - this is how it used to be when I was growing up, accidental matings were often given away free to good homes. I hope they do end up in good loving homes - one can never tell - even if money has exchanged hands.

    One positive thing is that the breeder definitely isn't doing it for the money.

    It is a fact though that people are more likely to take on a puppy on a whim if they are advertised for free, and it is safer to ask a rehoming fee. If the owner is doing checks this might bypass these people, but it would still be advisable for them to charge a low and safe amount such as £75-£100 for each puppy.

    Agreed. When i was younger most "family" pets were from accidental matings or surplass working litters and very little (if anything) was paid for them.

    It was people wanting more "exotic" breeds and the "fashionable" pup of the moment that caused the prices you see now for pet dogs :rolleyes:
