Old English Sheepdog

Old English Sheepdog


Height: 21-25 inches

Weight: 65-80 lbs.

Life Span: 12-13 yrs.

Breed Group: Herding Dogs

Overview
Old English sheepdogs are generally good natured and fun loving, but lifetime training and socialization must begin from early puppyhood.

Without that attitude and commitment from his owner, the sheepdog can become stubborn and unmanageable.

Appearance
The Old English sheepdog's outercoat is shaggy, profuse, and hard in texture; its undercoat is a dense, waterproof pile. Coat color is shades of gray, grizzle, blue, or blue merle, sometimes with white markings.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
Old English sheepdogs require an enormous amount of grooming--about an hour a day of brushing and combing to avoid serious matting. They need a lot of daily exercise.

Origins
The Old English sheepdog was developed in England in the 19th century to drive sheep.

Special Alerts
It is especially important to obtain an Old English sheepdog from a reputable breeder. Old English sheepdogs must have experienced owners who can devote much time to their care and who live where the dog's exercise requirements can be met.

Breed-related health concerns: hip dysplasia, juvenile cataracts, progressive retinal atrophy, cervical vertebral instability (a malformation of the neck vertebrae causing a wobbly gait), bloat, deafness.
