Australian Kelpie

Posted December 10, 2014

I owned an Australian Kelpie for roughly 1 Year - whilst my neighbour was away. Nutmeg was well trained before i received her and was a real treat to look after. She was a very intelligent dog and quite low maintenance. It took a while for her to adjust to a new environment but she settled in quite well. She knew a few tricks like shaking hands/paws and rolling over. I only owned her for a year but I maintained contact with her once she was returned to her owner - over the years as she had aged she had gotten quite fragile and began to lose her sense of direction as well as her stamina.
