Australian Kelpie    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Riley was rescued from the high kill shelter. He was on the euthanasia list and had only a couple of hours left to live! Riley is very sweet and a total gentleman. He is medium sized and about 45 lbs. He's about 2 years old, micro-chipped, neutered and UTD on all shots. Riley is a super QUIET indoor dog. Outside he will only bark when something happens and then is quiet again. At night he picks a bed to sleep in or watches over the living room. He's super sensitive and easy going with a funny and odd personality. Riley is great with new dogs and gets along with both male and female companions. We are still unsure about how he will react to ... (Read More)children. Riley is not good with cats or birds. Riley has one really unique feature... he loves to 'smile' and show off ALL of his pretty white teeth! I was a little afraid to post a picture of him smiling, but we think it's most important to match him with the right person then to scare a potential adopter off when they show up to meet him. He's also currently in a foster home with a pack of cattle dogs and needs to find his forever home. Trial foster to adopt is preferred and we will ALWAYS take Riley back if he doesn't work out in your home. More pictures and video available. *I will update this page when Riley is no longer available. *ADOPTION application with home check and re-home fee is required.

Rescue Me ID: 15-10-16-00429Lady Bug (female)

Australian Kelpie Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Lady Bug is affectionate and charming. Well behaved in home, in public, in car. Fine with strange people, including children. OK with other dogs, but tends to be bossy and will remind males that bitches rule. showed no interest in caged cats, but behavior with cats in home situation unknown. reacts to dogs (and sometimes other animals) on TV. Adopter should be moderately experienced. doesn't need to be expert but shouldn't be beginner. breed : she's either all Kelpie (but probably not working line) or Kelpie cross. may be Kelpie x Queensland ? about 40 lbs when lean and fit. very cute. health issues : Lady Bug came to me grossly ... (Read More)obese, but she is now at a healthy weight, could lose a few more pounds to be ideal. She does require thyroid med twice a day, and should be retested (T4, free T4, TSH) yearly. she had a history of urinary tract infections in former home, but reducing her obesity and getting her on thyroid seems to have reduced her risks for this. Local adoption only : will not consider adoptions more than a 1 hour drive from Davis, Ca, preferably much closer. I will need to keep in touch with her, possibly visit. may do pre-adoption home visit. good fences required ; no exceptions ! Lady must be a house-dog and companion, preferably sleeping on your bed. UPDATE 11/12/2015. Lady is probably going to stay with me. I'm still somewhat willing to consider adopters, but it has to be a really super home. (Less)

Australian Kelpie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Ruby is one special girl. Abandoned at an apartment complex, she was on her own for quite a while and, though it took a lot of effort, she was finally brought in to a foster home. She is young, very healthy, and once she settles in to new surroundings and knows who she can trust, she is quite the entertainer. Ruby is about one and a half years old and about 45 pounds. She loves to be with other dogs, especially little ones. She could learn to love life as an only dog too though. She even hung out with cats while she was on her own, so cats are OK with her too. Though Ruby is very fearful of new surroundings and people, it will ... (Read More)only take a loving human pack with great consistency to help her become the awesome dog she is. Could you be the family for her? You can find out how to apply for Ruby on the Adoption Process page of our website - You can email us for more information at All potential adopters are expected to complete an application and provide pictures of their yard, patio, and/or balcony making sure we can see the fence line and/or railing. The application can be completed and submitted from our website - - and is found under Resources. Applications will be reviewed for approval before setting an appointment to come meet and possibly adopt the dog of interest. In addition, those who live in a rental property are expected to provide proof that they are allowed to have a dog where they live. Each of our rescued dogs has been de-wormed if necessary, de-flea'd (with topical treatment if old enough, and by medicated bath if too young), spayed/neutered, microchipped, is up to date on shots, and has been fully examined by a veterinarian. In addition, each adopted dog comes with a starter baggie of the food it has been eating, a few treats for training purposes, a rawhide chew, a lead and collar, and a folder containing pertinent records.

PIease Read Before Adopting an Australian Kelpie in California
    Australian Kelpie Dogs can make good pets in California if they match your IifestyIe. 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.

    A Kelpie can jump on a sheep's back and run over the whole herd to reach the other side. One Australian Kelpie can herd thousands of sheep.
