Old English Sheepdogs are known to be adaptable, smart, and gentle. They’re a purebred, part of the herding group. This doggo was initially bred to live up to its namesake and herd sheep. Today, they’re an excellent family companion dog. So, if you want to learn more about Old English Sheepdog puppies, keep reading.

Where To Get Old English Sheepdog Puppies

You can get Old English Dogs where ever you can adopt puppies. But, first, you can check with your local animal shelter or rescue organization. They may have mixed breeds, purebreds, or Old English Sheepdogs of any age. However, you’ll still gain a furry friend while saving a dog’s life. Birdie…

Alternatively, you can go through a reputable breeder. Since this is purebred, the American Kennel Club recognizes it as a breed. So, most ethical breeders are registered on the AKC Marketplace.

To know a good breeder from the rest, they’ll do the following:

  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date on their vaccinations
  • Have health documents ready for you
  • Be able to answer all of your questions about the process, breed, breeder, the parents, or the puppies
  • Want to meet with you in person so you can get to know them and meet the parents and the litter

If you find a breeder that doesn’t do the above, then you might have found a puppy mill or a backyard breeder. These breeders should be avoided since they don’t breed the dogs under healthy or safe conditions. Also, they’re more interested in making a profit.

The Cost

The cost may differ depending on a few different factors. For instance, the price can increase or decrease depending on the breed’s popularity, the breeder’s location, or the puppy’s age, coat color, or lineage. For an Old English Sheepdog puppy, you can expect to pay anywhere between $1,800 and $3,000. Shobath…

Appearance

Old English Sheepdogs are large dogs. For instance, females can grow at least 21 inches tall, and males can grow at least 22 inches tall. In addition, they typically weigh between 60 and 100 pounds.

Also, they have a long double coat that can come in many coat colors. However, the most common are as follows:

  • Blue & White
  • Blue, Gray & White
  • Blue Merle & White
  • Gray & White
  • Grizzle & White

Temperament

Old English Sheepdogs are fun to be around. For instance, they’re loyal and affectionate with their family members. Also, they’re excellent with young children. When it comes to meeting strangers or other dogs, they might be wary at first and need time to warm up to them. However, you can train and socialize them from an early age. Luckily, this dog breed is easy to train.

They make an excellent watchdog, though they’re not aggressive and will never attack anyone. In fact, they don’t bark too much either. They’ll only sound the alarm when they feel as though something is off.

In addition, they can adapt to any living, whether in an apartment or a bigger home. However, they might do better in a bigger house with a fenced-in yard due to their size.

Even though they’re herding dogs, they only have moderate energy levels. So they’ll enjoy a long walk every day, but they won’t require too much exercise. Kika…

Old English Sheepdog Puppies – Veterinary Needs

Unfortunately, Old English Sheepdogs are prone to some health issues. If you go through a reputable breeder, then you can know their health history ahead of time. However, some of the health conditions this doggo might get are as follows:

  • Elbow Dysplasia
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Atrial Septal Defect
  • Entropion
  • Deafness
  • Degenerative Myelopathy
  • Sebaceous Adenitis
  • Tricuspid Valve Dysplasia
  • Autoimmune Hypothyroidism
  • Heart Disease
  • Eye Problems

So, for the first year of their life, you’ll want to bring your Old English Sheepdog puppy to the vet a few times during the year. You can track their growth and development and keep them up to date on their shots and boosters. Each year after that, you’ll only need to bring them to the vet once a year for their annual checkup.

With proper care, such as a good diet and regular exercise, your Old English Sheepdog has an average lifespan of about ten to 12 years. Panda…

Diet

You should be able to feed this doggo anything. They’re not generally picky and aren’t known to have too many food allergies. However, no matter what you feed them, you’ll want to ensure that your vet approves it. In addition, the dog food should be appropriate for their breed size, age, weight, and metabolism.

So, you can give your Old English Sheepdog high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or feed them homemade dog food. Ori…

Grooming

It’s hard to miss an Old English Sheepdog when you see one. They have a long double coat that looks woolly, even though it’s not. They shed quite a bit and require daily brushing of their coat. Otherwise, you’ll have fur all over your furniture and clothes.

In addition, they need to be groomed at least once a month or once every other week, depending on how their coat is. You can bathe them and trim their coat yourself, but it’ll be easier to bring them to a professional grooming salon.

Also, you’ll want to make sure you keep up with trimming their nails, brushing their teeth, and cleaning their ears regularly.
