    I didn't really care about the breed as long as it wasn't small and/or long haired. We always knew we'd be adopting from the RSCPA so a mixed mutt would always be inevitable. My partner adores Border Collies and black labs as well and after meeting a few, I started liking Kelpies more and more.

    I'm originally from The Netherlands so a 'true blue Australian' dog really appealed to me :P And then we met Loeka, a Kelpie X Collie. We actually were looking for an older female dog and Loeka was the complete opposite: he was 10wks old and he had a penis (tho no balls... so I guess he is kinda a girl).

    I'm still not too partial about collies (it seems like all dogparks adhere to some 30% collie quota) but I fell in love with the kelpie breed. The more I learn and read about them, the more fascinated I get. I like their temperament but I also like the way they look as opposed to the stockier Australian Cattle Dog. AND he doesn't have the long collie hair.

    /end epic story : P

    We wanted to get a rescue dog so weren't too fussed about the breed, we were hoping for a medium-sized dog. Ziggy (cattle-dog cross) has turned out to be perfect!

    We wanted a largeish family dog, so we googled dog breed's came across a webiste where you put in about your lifestyle backyard yarda yarda, and it come back 99% flat coat. We had never heard of them so thank goodness for google, and then meet a breeder and feel in love.

    Kassie Pit Bulls are allowed in Oz but they have to be muzzled in public (when walking, at the park etc), have to have fully enclosed yard so they cant jump or dig out and they have to be desexed.

    so pit bulls dont have the same rights as other breeds? why is this? also, if they have to be desexed, doesnt that mean breeders arent allowed to breed?

    okay cleas, i get your point but you have to admit, to the untrained eye, both breeds look pretty similar.

    No APBT's dont have the same rights as most breeds as they are on a 'restricted breed' list aka BSL (Breed Specific Legislation).

    You are also not allowed to sell, giveaway or advertise an APBT/APBT mix in Oz.

    Yes they are "supposed" to be desexed therefore meaning you are not allowed to breed them in Australia. But people dont comply with the laws or dont know there dog/s are APBT/APBT mixes, therefore leading to BYBing. So yes they are still around (obviously lol) but most are mixes and not pure.
