Old English Sheepdog (Herding Group)

Its trademark is its beautiful, profuse coat, but the intelligent and agile Old English Sheepdog (OES) can easily complete any demanding task asked of him by a shepherd or drover. Square in build and possessing great strength, the OES enjoys working and is seen in the conformation, obedience, agility and herding rings today with their characteristic shuffling gait. His coat, which serves as insulation, can be any shade of gray, grizzle, blue or blue merle with or without white markings.

A Look Back

The Old English Sheepdog originated in the early 19th century in the western counties of England, and is believed to have descended from the Scotch Bearded Collie and the Russian Owtchar. The OES herded sheep and cattle into major city markets, earning the nickname “bobtail” due to their docked tails. The short tail signaled their working status, earning their owners a tax exemption.

Temperament

An adaptable, intelligent dog of even disposition, with no sign of aggression, shyness or nervousness. (AKC)
