Diane, 
Your best bet in finding an oops litter is to volunteer to foster puppies at your local shelter. Most of us with farm collies are VERY particular about who our dogs breed to and the placement of those puppies. I paid $1000 for my present dog and flew her across country from NH to Oregon. Definitely NOT an oops litter- and I wouldn't trade her for a million dollars. She is perfect for our farm. I'm afraid I found your letter to be not only naive, but a bit insulting to farm collie breeders and what we are trying to achieve with our breeding programs.

I don't know of any cross bred litters.  I also don't know of any dogs being
sold for $100 or under.

Subject: [FARMCOLLIE] Searching for a female 'farm collie' puppy of a
certain type

My Sheltie cross Shannon died almost 2 years ago in September, a lot has
happened since then, I was supposed to have a dog 1 month later on October
the 8th, but everything I wanted was gone by the time I could get anything
done. I REALLY want a female puppy of the same type as my 1st dog, he was a
mixed breed farm collie, I put up a craigslist wanted ad 14 days ago &
haven't heard a peep from anyone;
http://stlouis.craigslist.org/wan/5652586894.html it has pictures. My dad
got sick around Easter & died in November & my mom said we couldn't get a
dog until he was gone & then a bunch of other stuff came up including her
having knee replacement surgery in April, so now we're definitely ready to
get a new dog if ever we can find 1. The reason why I'm not going the rescue
route this time is because not only have I seen only 1 dog that was anything
like Tippy, a Collie cross that was gone by October 8th, but the fees &
adoption forms are getting ridiculous. I don't want to spay the dog until
it's at least a year old because of growth issues, Shannon had too early
spay issues, like abnormal growth, legs too long, head to narrow, but she
was also spay incontinent, I also am going the fewest vaccinations as
possible route, so I'll be titer testing instead of vaccinating. Both are
things rescues frown upon, so I want a dog from an oops litter most likely
that needs a good home. Also I probably can't pay more than $100 for the
puppy if there's a fee at all. Any help finding a dog like this would be
greatly appreciated. I've seen at least 1 in the area but wasn't able to
stop & ask about the dog at the time.
