Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.


Yet another possible Kelpie?

I know you guys probably see a lot of this on this thread but I'm wondering if Sierra is actually an Australian Kelpie. We've always thought she was part GSD and part something smaller that would account for her being so petite, but now that I've stumbled across this page and see so many familiar looking faces, I'm starting to think we may have been wrong this whole time. What do you guys think?

    She looks very kelpie-ish to me from her pictures. What is her personality like? Kelpies are nearly always high energy and busy dogs who are very interested (even obsessed) with movement. They often exhibit a lot of herding type behaviors and show eye (intense unwinking stare) that they may try to control other animals or even people. They often excel at sports like flyball or agility as well as herding (mine does the eye thing on other dogs and cats, but it turns out Wiley is terrified of real sheep though-which may be why I ended up with him).
