Stevie #279 is a Kelpie mix. This 1-year- old is 22 pounds of business!
This strong and handsome guy has many of the Kelpie characteristics. Crate trained, leash trained, and very smart. He would do well with formal training. Since the breed is not well- known, here little more information about Kelpies from dogbreedinfo.com:
“A compact, robust, enthusiastic and tireless herd dog. Kelpies are devoted one-man dogs but far too work-oriented and energetic for a couch dog or apartment existence. Their easy trainability and keenness on the job make them a fundamental component of the Australian workforce. They are ready to respond immediately to any signal given by their masters, even from a great distance. They are good with children when they are raised with them from puppyhood and/or properly socialized. Kelpies will try to herd other dogs, pets and animals whether they want to be herded or not. This workaholic will work until it drops. They are independent and in business for themselves rather than for pleasing a handler.”
