The Old English Sheepdog is a breed of dog used for herding livestock, and as a pet.
They are best known for their shaggy grey and white fur which also covers their face, including their eyes, which leads some casual observers to wonder how they can see.
Puppies are born with jet black and white fur further likening them to the panda. It is only after the puppy coat has been shed that the more common gray or silver shaggy hair appears.
Old English Sheepdogs are often known as babysitters, because they are very affectionate with children, and had even been known to herd young children.
