A member of the Herding Group, the Old English Sheep Dog is a strong, compact, square and balanced dog. He is profusely coated, thickset, muscular and able bodied. These qualities combined with his agility, fit him for the demanding tasks required of a shepherd's dog.
They are adaptable and intelligent with an even disposition. They have no signs of aggression, shyness or nervousness. Dogs are 22 inches; bitches, 21 inches.
For the A-Z Challenge, I am blogging about dog breeds to celebrate the July 28 release of my novel, Chihuahua Momma To be published by Turquoise Morning Press. Other romance novels I have coming out are Virtue in December, and the Celtic Warrior Series in 2014.
I want to give a shout out to Alex J Cavanaugh and the A-Z Challenge group. Visit the A-Z Challenge web site: http://www.a-to-zchallenge.
