Default Oes

Always a breed that I've loved the look of (as long as they were shaved), but never really had any personal experience with, so that's what I'm looking for

Someone has an OES puppy in my apartment complex. OMG the cuuuute.

So yeah, looking for anything people know about them.

Awwww fer cuuute





And for the record, I'm not looking at getting one, I've pretty much stopped the hunt/want for a second dog anywhere in the foreseeable future. I'm just curious about the breed.

fur. lol that is all I know. oh, and they have a specific herding style and gait if I remember correctly.

I had one as a pet sitting client for a bit, he was cool. Kinda dopey but fun and sweet. lol

Kinda dopey is right, LOL. I've met several. The ones I've met have been pretty high-energy and kind of flighty.... Like, they have all of this energy and they don't know how to focus themselves. Of course the ones I've known have had similar owners as well.

And OMG the fur! There was one who came into our grooming salon all the time, his name was Wizard but we all called him Blizzard... He was just a whirl all the time, you couldn't really see him through all the fur, LOL.

Sweet dogs, though, I've never heard of a less than friendly one.

What Lizzy said! I have one as a client right now and she's a nice dog but very into everything and a bit "oooh shiny" much of the time. She is also a huuuuge boundary tester!

Thanks for the responses everyone! I am definitely going to file them under the "someday may own" category.

I love derpy dogs, and even more I love this:

My best friend has one named Watson!
He is a sweet, fluffy, huge goober.
Holy hair. She puts his hair up in a hair tye so he can see sometimes lol

He lives in a small home with her older mother, and they get on just fine. He is quite young and does get to romp/run around and go for short walks.

He is just a goob lol

I have no clue how people could stand the hair, lol. I would much rather just shave a dog like that down.

Yes but it's not just long, it's REALLY THICK. So even if you shave him, he still sheds a lot.

After having two corgis blowing coat at one time, I don't think anything shedding related could surprise me

HAHA, I loved reading the replies cuz I was gonna say the same exact things. (: They are very clumsy, dopey, and tend to be skittish. But very good-natured. I prefer dogs who are super clever evil geniuses and also silly, like Corgis!

Adrianne, he is so cute. I love his eyes.
