Border Collie Question

I have a 7 month old border colli she is great but she is kind of small in weight I would say...


I have a 7 month old border colli she is great but she is kind of small in weight I would say because she is only about 20 pounds but recently started to gain weight should I be worried she has been kept up with all her shots and worming etc and I have another collie same age but 28 pounds both are papered and I was wondering what's a good age to breed them if that's what I decide to do?

Well I think if you don't even know that well about the border collie breed, or to lazy too go to the vet, you should NOT breed them. They are both young babies so it makes sense for them to weigh a little. Common sense. Just because they have papers dose not mean they need to be bred. Thats what all BYBs (Backyard Breeder) think and then if the new puppy owners don't spay or neuter their puppies, they will think just because the Dam and Sire (mom & dad) have papers they might breed their puppies too. Most those puppies of any of those gerations WILL end up in a shelter, or pound. Do you REALLY want that? Think about it. There are TONS of puppies who need homes. Why not rescue or foster?

Think carefully before breeding any animal. Will you be able to find homes for the pups? You should be vetting all your pets, I volunteer at a Animal Shelter - there are always too many dogs/pups(as well as cats) to find homes for. Please think long and hard before you breed your dogs. Having pets spayed and neutered is a very healthy thing for pets.
