    Australian Kelpie Rescue Information: Australian Kelpies are intelligent working dogs with strong herding abilities. Kelpies are ill suited to apartment life, thriving on farms or in large yards. Kelpies are happy living mostly outdoors with access to some kind of basic shelter. A Kelpie can bore easily and become destructive if it does not have a task to accomplish. Australian Kelpies will try to herd other pets, much to their dismay at times.

    Australian Kelpie Trivia: A Kelpie can jump on a sheep's back and run over the whole herd to reach the other side. Legend has it that the Australian Kelpie is descended from a Dingo crossed with a Border Collie.

Rescue Me ID: 16-12-29-00316Duke (male)

Australian Kelpie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered 

    About 18 mos. McNab maybe Kelpie mix. He was found covered in mud! Totally housebroken. Didn't figure out the dog door for a week. Just held it till someone let him out. Had plenty of opportunity to chew slippers and belts, but perfect and trustworthy in my home. No herding tendencies. Not mouthy, Like many herders, doesn't 'hold your hand'. Great with the pack integration. Here's what know about Duke: Readers digest version: Needs a savvy owner. Not socialized properly as a youngster, doesn't really understand appropriate behavior. A little insecure with new dogs. Stiffens and moves slowly, checking out new dogs. That goes away with ... (Read More)verbal correction from the pack leader. Great on pack walks. Comes to the whistle! Also walks well on leash. Gets along with cats. Great in the house. Here's the in depth explanation of Duke: If you're looking at Duke, you chose an interesting dog. Not a no brainer. Been working with him. He came here pretty much thinking he can do what he wants. He did already have great house manners. Not knowing how to use a dog door (unbeknownst to me) I left him in the house for probably 14 hours at least. But I already knew Duke was a saint in the house. What I did not realize, he didn't follow my dogs go in or out. Came home to Duke with legs crossed! No accidents or destruction. Let him out and he peed for 5 minutes. Taught him to use the dog door! So,One hurdle jumped. He can be left in and trusted, and now uses a dog door if you had one. Next; Great on leash, no reactivity to urban situations, dogs on leash, strollers , bikes, skateboards, solid. Great off leash (always in on motorized vehicle areas, please). Another hurdle cleared. What I see, is improper socialization, plus alpha male. He's fine with other alpha males in open environments, off leash or my yard, even in the van. But, at times, and I can see it before it happens, he meets another dog like himself, slow walk, stiffening of the body, tail's up, ears high as can be, trying to be bigger than he is, neck over the neck of the offender, and if you don't stop it verbally (which you can) he will give as good as he gets. I carry a stun baton, and the sound of it breaks up unexpected crap, I haven't had a problem but anyone that is interested in Duke, needs to be aware and able to make that decision. We generally don't kennel the dogs, they have to get along in one large yard. I had been muzzling Duke while in the general population, when isolated, take the muzzle off. He's realized the difference, the aim, and has changed his behavior. But his owner needs to know this and be prepared. He is not a killer, but he can fight if he's with a dysfunctionally socialized dog. Off leash, meeting new dogs, he's quite laid back and polite. I do meet other dogs on the acreage we hike, and he actually runs to me afraid of the new dogs, so I know this is just bravado or insecurity when he fronts with new pack members. My pack continually revolves. Newcomers every week if not daily. Submissive or smaller males, or females, he is very nice. He's also been proven trustworthy around cats... Duke is respectful with humans, but there's a limit. You have to be fair. This is not a dog to be bullied. I'm careful with new dogs, taking them by the collar, I leash them up until I know them. I can muzzle Duke, with zero resistance. And something I do with dogs that don't get get along, is ground the dog that starts it. Meaning put them on their side like another dog would do. In grounding Duke, I made sure to have him muzzled first! I learned to do that when he growled at me the first time I went to put him on his side. This is to establish the dominant figure. They see me as another dog, and I have to be the biggest baddest dog at all times. Duke tried to challenge that. But as I said, I had a muzzle on him, so I listened to, and watched his protest, until he relaxed, and then let him up, only when I said it was alright for him to get up. Sounds nuts if you're not familiar with dog behavior. But it's working and he's gotten better every day. He won't be adopted to anyone who isn't dog savvy enough to handle him. In his own home with a family or an owner, he's going to do great. He's learning basic do's and don'ts here. And I have had way worse dogs go on to great lives. This is simply full disclosure about a dog, that didn't get this early learning stuff like he should have. Now, if you'd like to talk further about this intelligent, handsome, and somewhat challenging guy, I'm happy to. This is all I can tell you about Duke. His saving grace, I must say, is his willingness to stick with me in the open, and his great manners indoors and out. he's not a barker, digger, not anxious, can be left alone, and all these things balance out the issues I have had to work with him on.

Rescue Me ID: 16-12-08-00305Belle (female)

Australian Kelpie    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed 

    She's a 6 yr old Kelpie... former momma for sure. But as of a day ago, she is never having pups again! Belle came from Corona Animal Control. She'd been there a while, and like most sensitive herders, she had had enough of the confinement and the shelter was not going to keep her there much longer. So thanks to some very concerned volunteers, Belle was represented to me, arrangements were made, and here she is! Introductions were made quickly with the pack. Uneventful, just like we aim for. Belle is chilling in a huge yard with lots of straw filled dog-loo's and enclosures to be protected from this California cold! She really is great ... (Read More)with the pack... even though she stole a cow hoof from Brick, Brick just let her do it. Gotta love well balanced dogs... Belle is very healthy, available and would make for some really nice even company! She could lose a couple pounds, but... so could I...

Australian Kelpie Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sweet Roxy is a cute, smart girl looking for a home. She is about 2 years old, UTD on vaccines and recently spayed. She gets along with others dogs, but can be dominant. Roxy just loves to play with the big dogs. Good with children. This little lady has great leash manners and would be a wonderful hiking partner. I think in an active, breed savvy home this little girl would flourish. Is there room in your heart and home for Sweet Roxy? Please contact: Linda. 775-530-1752. Loveygwiz@sbcglobal.net
