Our featured Sheepdogs last month were these two adorable Senior brother and Sister ..... Please read their description ..... they needed
a new home, hopefully together and with the help of Petfinder, we found the perfect home for them.
..... the sad news is that we have gotten more adoptable (and adorable) sheepdogs into rescue.
We are newer to Petfinders, so please bear with us as we develop our page with much more info about Old English Sheepdogs and how to live with them happily.
Who We Are
We are the rescue arm of the Chicagoland Old English Sheepdog Club. We are dedicated to finding new homes for Sheepdogs that need one for any reason.
Adopting a Sheepdog
Old English Sheepdogs are definitely one of the most interesting and challenging dogs to own. Very intelligent, incredibly affectionate ... often known to train their owners faster than the owners can train them. High maintenance (lots of grooming), generally active dogs ... they require a fenced yard and a fair amount of exercise. Yet we often refer to them as "velcro" dogs because they would rather be next their human than anywhere else. Because of their dominant personalities, they are often not good in homes with young children.
Please Call and then Come Visit Us!
We suggest that you first call and see what we have available and if you qualify .... then we will make arrangements for us to meet you and you to meet the dog. It is important that each dog and each home be individually matched.
Please understand that we are *very* particular about the homes for these dogs, because we don't want to break your heart or the heart of the dog if another home does not work out.
