Introducing the gorgeous... the stunning... the dashingly handsome... Benji!
This magnificent young man is one heck of a dog and he needs a family to call his own.
Benji is an affectionate, friendly, happy chap. He's a kelpie through and through and will be able to be his very best in a family who has experience with a high intensity working breed dog.
Benji craves lots of physical and mental stimulation. He was given up by his family because they didn't have the time to give him the life he deserves.
We don't ever want him to be given up again.
Benji is social with other dogs, but he's full-on a prone to attempting to herd them so he will be best suited as the only dog in the home or perhaps with a more mature dog of similar breed with a compatible play style.
He is not nasty with cats but will try to herd them too, so only confident felines are likely to cope well with him.
Benji loves all humans he meets including kids, but he is boisterous and bouncy and enthusiastic and will knock over small children. Kids over 10 are preferred.
Benji will need to be walked every day, preferably twice daily. He is strong on the lead and wasn't walked much in his first home so his new people need to help him develop his lead walking skills.
Lots of mental stimulation is important too. If you want a super smart dog and you're interested in something like agility, obedience, dancing with dogs or the like... this is your guy!
Benji is a truly awesome dog. At 18 months old, he's still practically a pup. He needs someone to harness his awesomeness.

He's $450 to adopt and has been desexed, microchipped and vaccinated.
