Dungog Kelpie Sets New Record

Coming out of rural Dungog, one very special Shepard has just set the new national price record with a whopping $35,201 price tag. James and Alice Cooper found the right bidder for the right price on June 1st at the annual Woodenbong Carlton Working Dog Auction when a Narrabri cattle and dog breeder placed the record breaking bid.

Atlas Harper the Australian Shepard, is two years old and has been raised with cattle since he was a pup. “He’s got a great way with his cattle, they work together not against each other, and most importantly, he cares for his herd.” Says James, who has raised the lucky dog since he was a pup. “We know a good dog when we see one, and that’s more than a good dog right there.” Says the Narrabri winner.
