About this Breed

The Australian Kelpie has a compact body with well-developed limbs. Slightly longer than he is tall, he has a broad chest and firm hindquarters. The head is long and narrow. The medium length tail is low set. The short, compact feet have well arched toes. The double coat consists of a short and dense undercoat and a hard, straight and weather-repellent outer coat. The Working Kelpie (as opposed the the Show Keltie) comes in three coat types, smooth, short and rough. Many Kelpies have a white blaze on the chest, a few have white points. Kelpies used to have a double coat at one time, likely due to environmental factors. Agouti (The Agouti protein causes a banding effect on the hair) is not unusual, and initially looks like a double coat. Ears are usually widely spaced and pricked, but it seems at least 20% have one or both ears flopped. The ears run to a fine point and are strong at the base. The Kelpie's tail often follows the coat type and varies between smooth and bushy. Kelpie eyes should be widely spaced medium sized and almond shaped. Eye color should be tawny-gold to brown, harmonizing with coat color. For lighter colored dogs, a hazel eye is apparent as are the matching tan markings above the eye. The skull is slightly rounded and broad between the ears with the forehead curving very slightly towards a pronounced stop. The foreface is very finely chiseled. The muzzle tapers towards the nose and is rather elegant compared to the skull. The teeth need to be strong and evenly spaced - with a scissors bite.
