Well there are alot of stockman out there who breed certain dogs depending on the job, for example alot will breed blue heelers back with kelpies to give em the extra toughness to deal with cattle, whiel also giving it endurance. Alot of people will cross the kelpie with their border collie strain if they think they need a dog more hardier for the heat, yet, has the bc thriving to be told what to do. There are alot of of reasons why people cross their dogs for herding. The reason we have breeds liek the kelpie and blue heeler in the first place is due to cross breeding.
