ADOPTED - Yogi , 3 year old male kelpie x

Yogi is a handsome and loving man looking to find his perfect forever home. This sometimes shy boy just wants to learn what life has to offer.

Smarter than the av-er-age bear, Yogi cant wait to please, this boy can be shy at first but desperately wants to experience affection and learn what it means to be loved. As an active breed he would love nothing more than a home where he can keep up with his people, go on adventures and would love to go get a pic-a-nic basket loaded with food for a lovely day out.

Weight : 22kg

- Smart, quick learner;
- Short, easy to maintain coat
- Doesn't jump fences
- Doesn't jump up at people
- Leads well
- Loves car rides
- doesn't bark for the sake of barking
- Makes for a good outside dog
- Good with submissive dogs. He prefers to be top dog
- Good with livestock; scared of donkeys.

- Best to be in a family with older kids (teenagers) or no children, as he is a little shy when it comes to affection and is still getting used to the idea of being loved. He is very keen to learn more about it.
- not good with free range poultry - chases bush turkeys;
- Doesn't really have any road sense
- A little food obsessed. Will need guidance and training on leaving things alone like the bin
- Still working on his indoor manners as he hasn't had much experience
