A kelpie working farm dog has been sold for a record price of $22,200 in Victoria.
The two-year-old male called Glencairn Seven was sold by Christian Peacock from Waterloo, Victoria, at the 2018 Casterton Working Dog Auction at the weekend to an unknown buyer from Hamilton.
The sale eclipsed the previous record of $14,000 set in March this year for an Australian kelpie, a breed renowned for its skill in mustering of sheep.
The record-making dog was described in the auction catalogue: “Will suit station work as he has a big heart and goes all day.”

The 2016 Working Dog Auction offered 61 dogs with a clearance rate of 83.6% with an average price of $3763.
