Hi, I'm Nigel. I'm told that I'm a 10 year old Old English Sheepdog. I need a new home due to myowners death.

My caretaker called me stubborn. Well, what does she expect? I'm a sheepdog! Geez. She also says that I could use a brush up on my obedience skills. Well...actually she laughed and said that I pulled on the leash when she tried to walk me and that I totally ignored her when she asked me to sit, down or move out of her way.

However ignore that (and the fact that someone said I should be on a diet). I am friendly and interested in being your next best friend. Do you have room in your home and heart for me? Would you be willing to give me a bit of guidance when needed and help me work through whatever this obediance stuff is? I'm not sure what leash manners are and why our caretaker thinks it's important, but I'm willing to work with you on it if YOU think it's important.

Intersted in learning more about us? Contact the placement director - And please fill out an adoption application first and in the comments section let them know you are interested in US! We are in New Hampshire.

We often have dogs that for one reason or another we choose not to put up on the site. The adoption situation can change daily! As your first step, PLEASE fill out the adoption application form at: (copy/paste this link into your browser). If you have not updated your application recently, it might be a good idea to do so. We prefer to hear from you by email, and thank you for your patience.Thank you for looking at rescue instead of purchasing a puppy and unwittingly giving your money to back yard breeders or puppy mills. For more information on where to get a puppy from a reputable breeder, please contact NEOESR’s placement director at or check (copy/paste this link into your browser) at the Old English Sheepdog of America website.

Remember, there are dogs in New England, other than those shown, needing homes.  And be sure to check out our Courtesy Listings.
