i also have one , kelpie/grey x whipp/grey.

as the others have said great feet , and great staminar , and mines only 1'/4 . mine hates terriers .

Don't think do mate, what about all the collie and other herding dog crosses, may have the instinct but still catch stuff.

As was shown in the video clip; they certainly have no qualms about grabbing hold of thing so there's no need to worry about the herding instinct having negative implications.

I know of at least six kelpies used solely for field sports within the British Isles.

The shepherd in the clip bought his original stock from the shepherd who bred my old kelpie and he also bred the sire of my two bitches.

This is a great thread fellas, keep up the good work.

Lovely looking dogs on here, Mike, your big dogs absolutely stunning, is he out of a kelpie bitch to a greyhound sire and what sort of height/weight is he ?

Interesting hearing all the comments on the kelpie cross personality and physical traits they sound familiar.

Will try and get some snaps of our kelpie blooded stuff up if I can, pretty shite with the computer still I'm afraid.

Look forward to seeing more, lets hope this thread stays with the dogs and doesn't get hyjacked by some personalities bickering.

Good health, Finn.

Is that you then "V" ? having Cody certainly changed my life he has taught me more about dog training than any book or video could have, this was the reason for progressing with this cross as they suit me just wanted something a little smaller which is what I have got.

Finn
The big man is 27" and 70 pound when he's fit. He was from a Kelpie dog put to a Greyhound bitch mating. The bitch I have is only 10 months old and is around 23" and 46 pound she is from a Kelpie bitch put to greyhound dog mating (my own bitch put to Dave Sleights greyhound) The pups from my litter do seem to be a bit smaller than from the litter that the big fella came from which is interesting when you consider the Kelpie blood used is exactly the same as they are brother and sister.

You gotta get the right Kelpie blood butty :D the bitch I have is a nice compact size and has also been used for beating ferreting, longnetting ect and was well proven before being used, like Sleighty says all greyhounds are not the same, could be the same about the Kelpie's too. What I do know is I am happy with what I have and they suit me and what I want from my dog's :D

A striking looking bitch Jigsaw :thumbs: Very true Mike not everything turns out the same and sometime`s even an educated hand cannot sway things in his favor.
I have always fancied a first cross ACDXGreyhound something heavy built like a bus legs like cricket stumps you know the type ;)
That chocolate dog in the edge of the picture Mike is that one of yours?
