Overview
Originating in England, the English Shepherd is a versatile working breed that is adept at performing a variety of tasks. They are highly skilled at herding sheep, cattle, pig, and poultry. English Shepherd's are also capable of watchdog duties, hunting, vermin eradication, and companion. This breed is considered to be uncommon and rare.
Character
The English Shepherd is of medium size, well-balanced, agile, and courageous. They are built for speed, are muscular, sturdy, and possess great stamina. Ever alert, this breed exhibits a high degree of intelligence.
Temperament
The English Shepherd breed is not recommended for first time or inexperienced owners. They are fearless, affectionate, loyal, and devoted. They have a tendency to form a close attachment to one particular family member. The English Shepherd is good with children, dogs, and other household pets they have been raised with. English Shepherd's are wary and suspicious of strangers and will guard and protect their family, property, and territory.
Care
Regular brushing is recommended for the English Shepherd breed. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary. This breed has a very low incidence of Hip Dysplasia.
Coat
The English Shepherd is a double coat breed. The outer coat is moderately coarse, long, straight, or slightly wavy. The under coat is dense, fine, and soft.
Training
The English Shepherd is willing and eager to please. Early socialization and obedience is a must. They require a dominant handler, but will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency.
Activity
English Shepherd's are not recommended for city or apartment living. They must have a rural setting with ample acreage to roam, run, and work. The English Shepherd requires an inoridante amount of physical exercise and mental stimulation.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of English Shepherd puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

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. Have fun!

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. Thank you!

Go to englishshepherd.com. You will find a list of breeders that can help you a lot. I had one that I rescued, she was about 4 yrs. I had no clue of ES. I thought she was a cross between Britney Spaniel and Boarder Collie. Once I found out about ES's, I knew she was a true ES. LOVE THEM. Good Dogs.
