Welcome to Kusco Kelpies
We aim to breed sound Australian Kelpies of good temperament suitable for showing, obedience, agility, herding and being your best mate.
Our foundation bitch Australian Champion Morkerbook Blazen Dare (Kari) achieved her title at 13 months of age and has 500 championship points at just over 2 years of age. She has also commenced obedience training which she enjoys very much.
Kari has been mated with Australian Champion Linbarlee Hondo HIT(see his details on Photos and Puppies Pages).
Our much anticipated litter has arrived on 19th October 2008. There are 4 boys and 1 girl and all are doing well. See the Photos Page for regular updates
