Bronwyn Neuendorf

Kelpie x Puppy

Remy is a loving gentle but strong young man in need of a couple or family (no kids or pets) who can provide him with lots of energy and cuddles. We are currently unable to satisfy his needs due to our work lifestyles with our home and yard not being big enough to accommodate for his playful energy. We are requesting a loving owner/s, to provide him with the most love and care in the world as he is one amazing dog who will be a great companion for any situation. Remy's name was originated by us and he responds well to it, with the name originating from the Disney movie "Ratatouille" due to his intelligence and brown coat. We rescued him recently at Lost Dogs North Melbourne home and found him to be quiet in the beginning, but when you gain his trust through food and treats, he will slowly open up to you and start to show trust. He will benefit from force-free training and respond to treat motivated commands quite well. He is currently unsure about other dogs and how to respond to them, but he is quick to gain trust in no time. Notes about Remy: - Microchipped - Vaccinated (including all history) - De-Sexed - Wormed - Knows to sit, stay, off and down commands - Quick learner - Loves to cuddle We are looking for serious, loving owners only and will need to have a meet and greet before taking him home. He is an exceptional dog and we request him to have the right fit for his next home.

The Ultimate Kelpie Guide

About Kelpie

The Australian Kelpie has a slightly rounded skull and medium build. It has a broad chest and well developed limbs that contribute to its capability of untiring work.

Its double coat consists of a dense undercoat and weather-resistant straight outer coat. Colors are wide-ranging, including black, red, chocolate, and blue.



12 to 15 years



They generally weigh between 11 to 20 kg. Some can reach a weight of 27 kg.



Male: 46 to 51 cm Female: 43 to 48 cm



Kelpies have a double coat, so they need weekly brushing or combing. While they are a low-maintenance breed, they still need an occasional bath.


Kelpies originated from the Scottish collies brought to Australia in the late 1800s.

The foundation female, owned by J.D. Gleeson, was mated on many occasions, including to a male dog owned by C.T.W. King. At that time, the breed did not have a name. It was only after King’s dog’s performance in a sheepdog trial that the breed was named Kelpie’s Pups.

It wasn’t until the turn of the century that dogs with a Kelpie-like appearance were called Kelpie.

Key Characteristics Of Kelpies

Are Kelpies Family-Friendly?

Yes, they are. Kelpies are very friendly and get along with both people and pets. Playful and affectionate, they are good around children.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Kelpies may suffer from:


A condition where one or both testicles fail to descend into the scrotum, remaining in the abdomen or the inguinal canal.

Patellar luxation

A condition where the kneecap dislocates or moves out of its normal location within the knee joint.

Progressive retinal atrophy

Nature / Temperament

Intelligent, energetic, friendly, alert, and loyal

Suitable Environment

Kelpies are very energetic, so keeping them cooped up in a small apartment is not the best idea. They have a natural instinct to herd, making them suitable for small farms and homes with a big backyard.

Other Considerations

– As working dogs, Kelpies need all the exercise they can get. This means hours of vigorous physical activity daily.

– Kelpies have a tendency to try and herd almost any moving object by nipping the ground next to it. It is important to train them as early as possible to minimise this behaviour.

– Kelpies are used to herding in the heat, so they adapt better to warmer climates.

How can I take good care of my Kelpie?


As an active breed, Kelpies need a nutritious, high-performance diet. Their food should be packed with carbohydrates and protein to sustain their energy.

The typical adult Kelpie needs 2 to 2½ cups of premium dry food daily, divided into two meals.

Avoid feeding your dog with cheap, generic dog food as it lacks enough nutrients. Choose a brand made specifically for active dogs.


Kelpies need moderate maintenance, so brushing can be done once or twice weekly. Bathing can be given only when necessary to avoid removing the natural oils in their coat.


Kelpies have an incredible stamina, so they need regular mental and physical stimulation. You need to devote time and effort into their exercise needs.

There are plenty of exercises for you and your Kelpie. Aside from the usual daily walks and runs, you can trek, swim, or play fetch with your dog. Kelpies love the outdoors, so any activity that allows them to explore is recommended.


Kelpie dogs are very intelligent and start learning by the time you bring them home. They learn through observation and are quick to understand tricks and commands. They can be trained as early as four to five weeks.

This is basic information, and it should not be used to make adoption or purchasing decisions. Be sure to consult an expert if you’d like to learn about the breed’s care and requirements.

Most Asked Kelpie Questions

Kelpies generally have a straight forehead, almond-shaped eyes, and ears that point outward. They are muscular, with a deep chest and rounded ribs.

Their coat may be short, smooth, or rough with a base colour of black, chocolate, red, or blue. Some Kelpies have solid colours, while others have markings.

They do, but moderately. Luckily, routine brushing helps keep loose hair under control.

The cost of a Kelpie depends on the source. The average cost is between AUD $1,200 to $1,600. There are also dogs in the price range of $400 to $800.

If you are buying from a reputable breeder, a dog can cost almost $3,500.
