Description

They have a very distinctive coat which is extremely long and shaggy. Usually Old English Sheepdogs are white and gray but can also be found with grizzle, blue, or blue merle coats. Their undercoat is water resistant and is an insulator in hot and cold weather. The exact origins of the breed are unknown and widely debated. There are several theories on how the breed came into exsistence. What is known is that they were developed in the West Country in England. Their original purpose was herding livestock. Today they are usually used as companion dogs.

Temperament

Once considered to be fierce and untrustworthy those characteristics are no longer present whatsoever in the breed. The Old English Sheepdog is considered one of the best choices as a family pet. They have been refered to as “giant teddy bears”. They are affectionate and gentle, perfect for households with children. They love attention but are not considered “needy”. They have even tempers and are easily trained. They are protective, but never vicious.
Health Problems

Old English Sheepdog are generally healthy and not prone to many diseases or disorders. They can become afflicted with hip dysplasia due to their large size.

Exercise

Old English Sheepdogs are energetic and must have room to run. They also enjoy playing games. Old English Sheepdogs also enjoy long walks and are very easy to leash train.

Special Grooming Needs

Old English Sheepdogs need a great deal of grooming. It is necessary to brush them once a day. The areas around the feet can easily become matted if not cared for properly.
