By Levi Parsons For Daily Mail AustraliaPublished: 05:46 EDT, 14 June 2021 | Updated: 05:46 EDT, 14 June 2021A 'goofy' pooch with a 'quirky' personality has broken the national record for the most expensive working dog in history. David and Sarah Lee, from Edenhope in western Victoria, sold their two-year-old kelpie, Eulooka Hoover, for a staggering $35,200 at the Casterton Kelpie Association's Annual Working Dog Auction over the weekend. The going rate for a good working dog has sky-rocketed since the pandemic, with border closures and travel restrictions meaning there's been a shortfall of farm workers. 'If you get a good dog like Hoover, it means you might only need one person on a horse to follow, not several other workers.' While the buyer chose to remain anonymous, it is understood Hoover will now apply his trade at a sheep and cattle farm in north-east Victoria.
