12-month-old Kim smashed the previous record held by Border Collie Henna. She sold for 'just' £20,000. The average price for a working sheepdog is £2,000.
Dewi Jenkins of Talybont, Wales, taught Kim everything she knows. Mr Jenkins is a working farmer who trains sheepdogs in his spare time. And as soon as Dewi met Kim, he realised he had a very special pup on his hands.
A natural-born sheepdog
In addition to her rare and beautiful reddish coat, Kim displayed exceptional intelligence from an early age. After her first few weeks of training, she could do things that would take other sheepdogs years to learn.
Speaking BBC News, Mr Jenkins said:
Jenkins was tempted to hold onto such an intelligent dog. But Kim went to a good home and is now showing off her amazing skills every day. Plus, Kim's old trainer is first in line if she ever has puppies.
Searching for the next Kim
In the meantime, Jenkins continues to train sheepdogs on his days off. But it will probably be a very long time before he comes across another dog like Kim.
