Watch Nicole Cairns' video of Clive Fairbairn-Corvett and his dog Robbo here.
Clive Fairbairn-Corvett hadn't owned a working dog before his now-companion R obbo. In fact, Robbo wasn't originally Clive's dog.
"He was my dad's dog, but ever since I finished school he's adopted me," Clive said.
His mum had brought one of Robbo's ancestors over from New Zealand years before, and kept the bloodline in the family.
"Mum brought a three-legged dog back in her 20s . . . and she's a bit older than that now," Clive said.
The connection between Clive and Robbo happened very quickly after he graduated from high school in 2010.
THE TWO OF US: Clive with his dog Robbo
"He just started listening to me and following me," he said.
"I just took him everywhere with me, and he was always happy enough to come."
Clive had another dog when he was younger, and says there is a big difference between having a pet dog and a working dog.
Despite being Clive's favourite, Robbo doesn't get special sleeping at the foot of his bed benefits.
"Lunch time he just sits around the house and chews on a bone.
"He might get some better food after a long day," he said.
Robbo is one of three working dogs in his family, and Clive says the other two are still his father's.
"He's the keenest to get out and work."
The 20-year-old farmer seemed pretty happy to have his own working dog. And the four-year-old sheep dog seemed pretty happy to have Clive as his master.
