Old English Sheepdog

Average: 2.2 (13 votes)

This breed originated in the 19th century in England, where they were used to herd sheep and cattle into the city markets. This is where they also earned their nick name bobtail, due to their docked tails. The Old English Sheepdog is best known for its trademark beautiful, profuse coat that provides great insulation. The big, athletic breed stands at 20 to 24 inches and weighs between 60 and 100 pounds. Old English Sheepdogs are great with families, but are sometimes known for trying to herd humans.
