All this information is taken from The Australian Kelpie page. Why not go to their site and have a look?

"This wonderful breed came from two black and tan short coated prick eared Collies imported by a Mr. Elliott and a Mr. Allen in the 1860s." .."extremely alert, eager and highly intelligent with a mild, tractable disposition, a marked loyalty and devotion to duty." .."The general appearance of the Kelpie shall be that of a lithe, active dog of great quality, showing hard muscular condition combined with great suppleness of limb and conveying the capability of untiring work." .."The Kelpie has a moderately short coat - shorter than a German Shepherd but longer than a Doberman. "
Colour - there are "seven colours; red, chocolate, black, red and tan, black and tan. smoke blue and fawn."
