Australian Kelpie

From Dog

The Australian Kelpie is an Australian breed of dog, originally created as a working dog.

Many sheepdogs, including English North County Collies, were imported into Australia in the late 1800s. It’s thought that the Australian Kelpie we know today was a breed developed from a smooth-coated black and tan Collie, bred for its hardiness and weather-resistant coats, intelligence, obedience and loyalty.
