Is anyone able to give me some information on this breed?
Am I right that their not a reconised breed?
How do I find out if the breeders are registered??? And where may I find a list?
I live in the wheatbelt (country) and been interested in this breed for sometime. We currently have one dog (purebred Kelpie - not from a registered breeder) and been thinking for more then two years now about introducing a new K9 family member.
We personally take the decision very seriously so have taken such a long time to make sure we are perfectly set for another member and although we are we won't go out and buy the nearest dog to us. We do this with all new members of our family.
My husband loves the Kelpie breed and after I stumbled along the Koolie I instantly fell in love and have done extensive research and would like to know more of what people can personally tell me about them. It is my 'turn' to choose the desired breed as he already has what he has wanted.
We have many thousands of acres. We haven't always taken much interest into their breeding but having bred horses I understand the importance of breeding with care and have always bought horses registered with their respective society and bred my horse to strict conditions.
Not experienced with the dog world I'd like to know how I'd know if a Koolie breeder is registered. What traits to watch out for?
Their not purebred...so what are they?
This time round I want to purchase from a registered breeder.
I'm prepared to drive across the country and buy a puppy and so would like to know I'm doing things right.
Our Kelpie was bought at a market about 6 years ago now and is nothing but awesome! But as mentioned I'm a horse person and I like to know past pedigree and family history!
Thanks in advance!
