I am a 4 year old big boy looking for a new home. I stand very tall, broad and I’m kinda strong weighing in at 113 lbs. I’m tall enough to eat off your counter so if you want to eat it, don’t leave it. Despite my size, I am very loving and affectionate (once I get to know you) and get along with children but the tiny tots I’m a bit unsure of... I have been raised with 3 other sheepies but my current owner thinks I would be happy in a quiet place where I could rule the roost. Cats, no thank you! I am pretty good on a leash, accustomed to a fenced in yard so I can run about and will respond to basic commands. Up to date on my vaccinations and neutered I am ready to go to a foster or preferably forever home. If you are looking for a dog with a nice deep voice, I'm the dog for you. I can be seen in Southington, CT.

I'm a slender and petite (60 lb.) spayed girl 4 years of age with a tail! Like my name I am sweet, but can be a bit shy when meeting new people and skittish around men in particular. Oh, and I’ve got an added feature – a tail. I would make a good companion to an experienced OES family who would work with me on my confidence and bring out the best in me. I am leash trained and accustomed to being able to play in a fenced in yard. With patience, praise (and of course treats) it is in my cooperative nature to want to please and improve upon basic commands. No other dogs or cats please but older kids, OK. I've lived with other sheepies but would prefer quiet place to adjust to my new family. I am current on vaccinations and looking for a foster placement or forever home. I can be seen in Southington, CT.

Nigel is being adopted


Hi, are you looking for a loving Old English Sheepdog. Great! Cause I'm looking for a new home. Let me tell you a bit about myself. I'm about 10 years old and as you can see from my photo, I'm a handsome lad. According to my foster mom, I'm a very gentle and quiet dog that really likes to be around his person. I get along well with other dogs and cats. I also like rides in the car. I've been told I pull a bit on the leash, by foster mom thinks that with a bit of training, I'll get past that. She also says that I'm a bit errr.....fluffy and could stand to loose some weight. I'm not sure I agree with her on that! Could you be my perfect match? I've got a whole bunch of love to give that special some one. Is that you?

Nigel can be seen in Northfield, New Hampshire.
