Famous for having a shaggy coat, the Old English Sheepdog comes in many different colors including blue, black and gray. These dogs are large, and can live to be as old as ten. They are prone to certain diseases including hip dysplasia, deafness, and cataracts. They were often used as a herding dog, and do best with land to play and roam on. Some people have reported success with training them to live in more urban environments. They are very gentle and loving with children, although they may attempt to “herd” them via light bumping. They do well when competing in agility or obedience training.
