Old English Sheepdog Characteristics

Famous for its shaggy black and white coat, the Old English Sheepdog is instantly identifiable. These dogs were originally bred as herding dogs, but now are more popular as loving and protective household companions. The Old English Sheepdog (or OES for short) is a great candidate if you're looking for a large companion dog who is happy to learn and spend time with its people.

The Old English Sheepdog is thought to have originated in England in the late 1800s. After being brought to America in the early 1900s, it enjoyed a reputation as a breed for the upper-class.  By the mid-1970s, it had reached peak popularity and was a common household companion. Since then, the popularity has dwindled due to the effort required to care for its iconic coat.

These are large dogs that appear even larger thanks to their fluffy exterior. Males stand around 22 inches tall and weigh 80 to 100 pounds. Females stand a little bit shorter at around 21 inches tall and weigh 60 to 85 pounds. While the OES does not shed as much as you might think, their coat does require a substantial amount of upkeep and professional grooming to prevent matting.  

These dogs have lovable and clownish personalities and are always looking for ways to make their humans happy, whether adult or child. The OES is an intelligent breed and does well in obedience sports and herding. The Old English Sheepdog is prone to separation anxiety and does not enjoy spending substantial time outside, so keeping your OES inside where the people are is your best bet.  

How dog-friendly is Oklahoma?

We have a few different studies to rank Oklahoma, and overall it’s a pretty great place to own a pet! 


Two major studies ranked all 50 states by several factors related to pet-friendliness. They evaluated indicators like access to pet services and veterinary care, animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, outdoor space, and dog parks. 


The first study, by an animal safety group called Pawsafe, ranked Oklahoma quite well as the 16th most pet-friendly state in the country. The state scored well with Pawsafe for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Another broad study, conducted by a consumer safety review site called Safewise, didn’t rank the state quite as well. Oklahoma came in 33rd most pet-friendly state in the country according to Safewise. 


However, if we take the two studies together, Oklahoma is good to average in the pet-friendliness category.

Are cities in Oklahoma pet-friendly?

We also considered a study from Wallethub that surveyed the 100 largest cities in the country to rank them by pet-friendliness. Here’s how Oklahoma’s largest city stacked up.

Tulsa

Tulsa ranked 27th overall, scoring 15th in pet budget, 58th in pet health and wellness, and 50th in outdoor pet-friendliness.


A Trust for Public Land (TPL) study also reviewed the country’s 100 largest cities. They ranked all 100 by which have the most dog parks per capita. Tulsa ranked in 78th place, with 0.5 dog parks per 100,000 people.

Forty-six out of 116 of the animal shelters within Oklahoma are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is average, and the state has a below-average save rate of 77%. This is below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state.
