Kelpies as a stud,

Recommended Posts

HI jigsaw, sorry for being so late to this thread but I've not been on for about a month. Do you know anything about the pedigree of the dog? Would you like me to do a bit of research? My pup's doing well. He's just over 13 months old now and (thanks to White Van Man) he experienced rabbits for the first time on Dartmoor in May. He has a great nose for hedgehogs too and whenever he finds one in my local wood he walks over to it and lays down; allowed me to film a female and her two young at the weekend thanks to his nose. He's extremely friendly and I can't ever see him being the guard dog type (touch wood) which suits me fine. Unfortunately, Scout (my old bitch) was put to sleep just over a week ago due to a short illness which turned out to be kidney failure so I'm down to two males under six...I think it's about fourteen years since I had such a youthful "pack."

Thanks Neal,I will dig deeper into the dogs background,the owner is a hill farmer and is not the most talkative of folk,I do know he paid 1k for the dog and it came from Wicklow,I am sad to hear the old lady passed on,.....oh and I'm still waiting on a few photos of the young dogs you promised me a long while back lol...

Me and technology are not great friends! 

As an example I've tried to send this reply about half a dozen times in the last couple of hours but it keeps sending me to a different page and saying ERROR 404.

That's exactly what my advice was going to be!

Seriously though... the same as with any dog...temperament is everything so make sure the sire and dam are dogs you'd be happy to spend the next sixteen years with.

Running dogs are such a small % of hunters here,in NSW anyway,its all pig hunting.Cattle dogs are used for them sometimes or are in a lot of pigdog lines.They use pure kelpies a lot for bailing pigs to shoot or until the lugging dogs arrive.You cant hunt deer or roos legally with running dogs but staghounds are mostly used for fast bigger stuff or bullygrey types.The last 15 to 20 years I've mainly hunted rabbits with whippet or whippet/ stags,apart from catching goats for dog food with a pitbull.Couple of pics on living off the land section under pig headed.

A lot of fox dogs around mate, check out the running dogs FB pages Australia most are stags and bullgreys  I talk to a few of them not many kelpie only the odd whippet x for rabbits

well ,i was in the yard with the Kelpie dog and hes a real soft oul mutt,loves yer mans daughters ,and is quiet happy to lounge in the sun waiting for his master to put him to work ,what i saw of him ,i really liked and think if he passes his laid back temperament to his off spring ,id be satisfied with that ,i have had one for 12 years allready and i couldnt have asked for a better dog/shooting partner  and general all round mutt.as for foxes ,they wont be high on my list of quarry with these dogs
