Old English sheepdogs are smart but independent dogs. They can be strong willed and need a firm hand to guide them along the right path. They do have a remarkable sense of humor and seem to enjoy their owner's dismay at some of their antics.
While not thought of as a guarding dog, some Old English sheepdogs can be protective. Their bark is loud and some become nuisance barkers. Old English sheepdogs do best when given early socialization with both other pets and people.
Our Old English Sheepdog figurine has been meticulously hand painted. It measures 4" 1/2 " x 2 " x 2 " (L x W x H). He proudly sports a silver colored chain necklace with a tag in the shape of a bone with the letters " K C " depicting its membership in our Kennel Club.
