The much-loved Kelpie is a distinctive Australian dog breed renowned for its intelligence, tenacity and superior livestock herding ability. The first Kelpie was a black-and-tan female named Kelpie, bought by Jack Gleeson from a litter born on Warrock Station near Casterton, Victoria, around 1872. Kelpies are medium-sized dogs that come in a variety of coat colours, including black, red, blue and fawn, and coat types can be short, smooth and rough. There was a belief that because of the similar pricked-up ears and body shape, the Kelpie breed was partly descended from the Dingo; however, recent DNA evidence has shown that this is not the case. The Australian Kelpie shown on the stamp is a red or brown Kelpie, a type familiar to film lovers through the movie Red Dog.
