Old English Sheepdog Puppies
The Old English Sheepdog derives from several non-English breeds, isn't a particularly old breed, and is a cattle drover, not a sheep herder, so it's unclear where the name came from. However, with his 'shaggy' profuse coat, he's one of the most recognizable of dogs. These are strong athletes who thrive on exercise and a job to do. They do well in obedience, agility and herding activities and love a good romp. Their herding instinct is strong and they may try to herd kids, family and friends. With plenty of exercise, both mental and physical, your Old English Sheepdog puppy will grow up to be an affectionate, playful family companion: sweet, smart, protective and patient.
