Kelpie and German Shepperd Puppy Faceoff

A local Kelpie faceoff with a German Shepperd puppy. Neither want to lose.

Kelpie and German Shepperd Puppy Faceoff

The ancestors of the Kelpie were simply (black) dogs, called Colleys or Collies. The word "collie" has the same root as "coal" and "collier (ship)". Some of these collies were imported to Australia for stock work in the early 1800s, and were bred to other types of dogs (possibly including the occasional Dingo), but always with an eye to working sheep without direct supervision.

So I have no idea how a look alike Kelpie can found its way here, at Borneo.
