Yes, English Shepherds are great with nine and ten-year-olds! My younger sister was four when we got our English Shepherd Oliver and he got along just fine with her. And yes, they shed a lot, so that's why we have him shaved at the beginning of the summer or spring.

Lot's of exercise! Twice daily and you'll have a happy dog. Otherwise, you might have misbehavior. English Shepherd's are a great breed - loyal, smart, obedient.

The adoption lady thought she was an Australian Shepherd/Rottweiler mix, but the more I learn about English Shepherds, the more I think she might be one. The only thing that is different about her than the other English Shepherds I've seen is that she seems to be a bit smaller. I adopted her at 7 weeks and she weighed 3.8 pounds. She is now just over 10 weeks and she weighs 7.2 pounds. Is it possible for her to be this small and to be an English Shepherd? My guess is that she might be an English Shepherd mix. What is the average weight for English Shepherds at 10 weeks? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

English Shepherds are great dogs! We have 2 that live with us inside of course but during the day, they keep a close eye on the feral cats they've come to love. Gentle with kids too. Only things that are at risk- tennis balls and plastic jugs. Oh yes, treats too.
Really, such loyal and happy dogs. My rescue just turned 9. We've had her 3 years.
Her 1st mommy still checks on her. I can tell how much she's missed there. Don't know the whole story BUT we got a great girl!!!!! She is, without a doubt, Mine now & forever.
That's how much love an ES can have on you. Pure love. Great pups!
