Arrival Story:
By way of a 'free to good home' ad, I found Java - said to be a Kelpie x Huntaway - amongst a litter of 4 girls living on a horse farm with Mum & 2 Blue Heelers. A car trip, a bath to get rid of all the farm dirt & with the boss (cat Remy) overseeing things, she settled into her new home & soon earned a certificate at puppy school! A+ for playing and working for those lovely chicken pieces!

To put an end to my nagging wondering "why are her legs so short? Kelpie's and Huntaways have normal, long legs!", I had Java's DNA tested. Kelpie came in as a distant relative only, with Koolie rating higher. Huntaway didn't come into it, though it may not be on the testing database. It explains that both her parents would have been mix breeds themselves, that one of her grandparents would have been a pure Koolie and a pure Kelpie must have been further back than that. Interesting stuff. So she's very much a mixed breed with a vast, mostly unknown, ancestry & I LOVE her!!!! One of a kind!.... with short legs :)
