Arrival Story:
While travelling around Australia, stopped in Fremantle,Western Australia in 1998, Shep was given to Kevin as a 6 wk old puppy as a birthday gift. Shep then accompanied Kevin on further adventures camping in the Outback. They returned to Queensland on the East Coast Then late in 2001, Kevin & Shep joined Andrea & 4yr old Jak to make one big happy family!

Sheppie Dog loves his family! He takes guarding his borders very seriously. When out walking around Finch Hatton, he is very well behaved & literally 'talks' to everyone who will stop to listen! He enjoys visiting 'Grandad' who spoils him rotten with attention & treats. In the early days while travellling, Shep developed a love for swimming, camping and the chasing of dragonflies. The biggest problem Sheppie had to overcome, when Kevin finally came back to civillization,... WAS!... That he had to give up the front passenger seat to people! What do you think I am... a "dog"? I do not sit in the back I sit up front with DAD!... He has spent time on a sheep property while travelling, where he was taught to round up sheep. There after, all things needed rounding up... groups of little children, chooks and chickens, horses and cows. Now in early retirement Sheppie lives on a small block of land in a small country town, where he loves going to the creek to swim and to chase dragonflies.

Forums Motto:
Will walk any time, any place.
