MEET OUR DOGS

Ruby, Watson, and River live inside with us and our four rambunctious boys! They've been handled by every family member as well as the many visitors we get on a day to day basis. Well socialized and much loved, our dogs are truly a part of our family. We are so excited to bring puppies into this same atmosphere so you can enjoy them as much as we do!

Bear, Panda,  and Henry live with their guardian families.

Watson - Sire

Born July 20th, 2016, Watson measures 26.5 inches at the withers and weighs 87 pounds. Sheepdogs are adorable little black and white panda-looking bears. As they mature, their black coloring turns grey.

He is a beautiful purebred Old English Sheepdog. He is loyal, sensitive, and in tune with emotions. I love that he’s always checking with every family member to see we are all together. On long hikes he will run back to check on the last person, which is usually me, then runs back to the lead person. He specializes in pulling skateboarders around, which makes him extremely happy! He is very active when it’s time to be and very mellow when the mood calls for it. His dislikes consist of table scraps, swimming, and rain. (Poor boy does not like being wet!) 


He does excellent with my kids, and the heavy foot traffic that comes through our home. With four sons, we have an active flow of kids. I love that he protects our house when we aren’t home. He stays mellow in the house, car, and can be the ultimate couch potato. He’s the best of both worlds! He can go on all-day hikes and keep up with the outdoor adventures of my family. He also enjoys lazy days watching tv, and playing board games alike.

With his big, shaggy, fluffy coat comes some responsibility. He shed in clumps versus little fine hairs. His coat requires brushing and washing. I take him to the professional groomer once a month and every couple of days he gets groomed out by the kids. He has a gentle, kind, willing personality with the perfect sprinkle of stubbornness!

Bear - Dam

Bear is an AKC, Old English Sheepdog born July 11th, 2021. Bear is anticipated to be 70 pounds, standing 24 inches tall at the shoulder.

Bear lives with a wonderful guardian family down the road from us,
where she enjoys life hanging with her humans and her Springer Spaniel brother, Danner! She gets to play with her sister, Panda, and a few times a month.

Bear loves walks, treats, snuggling her family, sleeping, her cozy crate, and hanging with Danner.

Future plans include breeding Bear to our OES sire, Watson to produce a purebred, unregistered, Old English Sheepdog litter. With Bear's striking blue eye, we anticipate a few of her pups to have at least one blue eye!

Panda - Dam

Panda is an AKC, Old English Sheepdog born July 11th, 2021. Panda is anticipated to be 70 pounds, standing 24 inches tall at the shoulder.

We are excited she’s in our family. She lives with her guardian family (my friend and groomer) and Paisley Rose, a pup from our very first litter! She is is just a few blocks away, so we get to see her and Bear often.

 

Panda loves chasing the kids, wrestling with Paisley Rose, and being anywhere her family is. Her all-time favorite game is tug-o-war. Second to that is running around the yard, getting treats,  and sleeping. She has learned, sit, stay, down, off, come, and we are working on heel, leave it, and “dead dog!"

Future plans include breeding her with Henry, our AKC small standard poodle, offering a variety of Sheepadoodle colors: black and white, red and white, and phantoms!

River - Dam

River is a sweet girl whom we adopted in March 2022, born on August 11, 2019. She is 75 pounds, 25 inches at the wither, and a purebred Old England Sheepdog.

She is what is known as an "extreme white" in the OES world, and normally dons the trademark fluffy coat, although she is currently growing that out after a shave (which we don't recommend btw, however, sometimes things just happen...)

She loves following us around the house, yard, hikes, snuggling with my youngest children, and putting her head on anyone who will gaze into her eyes and give her attention. She talks when she needs something, is obsessed with chew sticks, bones, and her dog bed. She has the typical OES Velcro dog temperament that’s low-key, sensitive, and playful. She loves being by and on her people. Old English Sheepdogs are the best foot warmers!

Ruby - Dam

Born July 7th 2018, Ruby Parti Dancer is 22 inches at the withers and weighs 40 pounds. She is a purebred, medium-sized Parti Standard Poodle with rare Sable coloring. The sable gives her black tips on her ears, apricot coloring throughout her top coat, and a silver color on the base of her coat. She is a stunning girl with lots of spirit to match her beauty.

She is nothing short of an amazing athlete. Her joy in life is running with my husband, playing hide and seek with my kids, playing in the rain, and going on hikes. When she can sneak in table or floor scraps, her dreams have come true! But don’t worry, we don’t encourage scrap eating, the kids just leave enough messes around that she gets little treats throughout the day! She loves anything that involves playing. Her kids are her joy in life and all the foot traffic through the house keeps her excited to meet new friends (and pick up the little snacks they drop). She is attentive, loyal, does not get distracted by other dogs when out with us, and is packed with personality.
