I am having a hard time finding my next performance dog! The sport mix I was going to get, the female never came into heat and she's thinking about delaying the litter until next summer. I want a puppy this summer/fall if at all possible. I thought about getting an ACD but could not for the life of me find a litter that could do performance - and I contacted a load of people who were very nice and very honest about the drive level in AKC ACDs and the expectations I have for my next performance dog in terms of drive. Plus, I want him to get along with my GSD. I basically like strong herding breeds with loads of drive and anywhere from 20-60 lbs. Maybe the fact that I'm not being super picky is making my search more difficult. I also have been contacting the local rescues and shelters and looking for what I want there. Anyway! I have gotten ahold of a couple of working Kelpie breeders that sound wonderful! Is there anything I need to worry about getting a Kelpie in the US vs importing one? I am open to importing if need be but it would obviously be cheaper to stick state-side. Also, any breeder recommendations that are just outstanding? Any advice in general? Everything I've read has said that Kelpies are ACDs without the bad attitude and that in general, they are dog friendly or neutral. Sounds perfect, looks fast, powerful, drivey and loves to work. Any info welcome!
