|He looks a bit like Wiley. His muzzle is a bit broader than some kelpies' and his coat looks a little bit slicker/shorter, but it's hard to know for sure as there is variation in the breed (they are bred for work and not show in the US at least).
One of the frustrating things about kelpies is that as a sort of "wild type" dog phenotype, some mixes of various shepherd type and other breeds can develop a similar appearance to kelpies (large, upright ears, long muzzle, similar coloring, short coat, medium sized). What is his behavior like? As herding dogs that use eye to control stock, kelpies tend to be very interested in movement and will often use an unblinking stare to try to control other animals or even people. Unfortunately, none of the DNA tests would be helpful (assuming they really work), because kelpies aren't even in any of their breed databases at this time.
