  • Overview:

    The Australian Kelpie, or simply Kelpie, is an Australian sheepdog successful at mustering and driving with little or no guidance. It is a medium-sized dog and comes in a variety of colors. The Australian Kelpie is a capable and clever herding dog used to work sheep and other livestock in the United States and, of course, his homeland of Australia. Unfortunately, Kelpies shed hair heavily so the vacuum will get a good run.
