12 Best Halloween Costumes For Old English Sheepdogs

Under the many fur there is a dog that cuts a fine figure both when working in the herd and in the family. The Old English Sheepdog – better known locally as the “Bobtail” – is a friendly, lively dog who can be recognized from afar by his impressive bark!

#1 Writings in which the old English herding dogs are first mentioned date back to the early 18th century, but the history of this ancient breed probably goes back much further.

#2 The persistent dogs used to help the English shepherds with cattle drives, where they drove the herds over long distances to the nearest town and also protected them from possible attackers on the way there.

#3 The dense and woolly fur of the dogs was essential for working outdoors, which makes them insensitive to all weather conditions.
