Looking for an OES but smaller

Hi All, I grew up with the most beautiful OES pups! They are a fabulous family dog. I'm looking to get another one for my kids but the are petrified of big dogs. I was hoping to get a smaller OES . I looked at the Feathers and Fleece website and they breed micro Sheep dogs. Does anyone know about these breeders? Are the reputable? I had wonderful dogs with the most amazing playful and calm temperaments. I really want this to be a great experience for my family. Any advice is welcome. Thanks

Feathers and Fleece has been discussed quite a bit. Just a quick search of the forum brings up this thread:

Thanks Ron. I'm looking for a breeder in the Boston Area. Any recommend?
I don't really personally know any of the oes breeders around here. There are breeders on this forum, and there is the OESCA breeder referral program.

My wife Joan and I just rescued a 7 month old boy from Tennessee to be our furbaby.
No reputable breeder is breeding "micro"' OES.
Please read the thread that Ron posted - F&F you probably want to
stay away from. Really.
((Maybe not an oes? - if you are concerned about someone
who fears dogs. Especially if you are looking for a puppy. Most oes pups are
curious, boisterous, clownish, herding dogs.))

There are many rescues right now that you might want to check into.

Good luck in your search.

Thanks so much- I have found an OES rescue place in my area.
Just a thought for you to consider. If your children are involved in the upbringing of a puppy (small) and watch it grow, I wonder if that would overcome their fear of larger dogs. This would be their own dog that they raised as a "small" puppy, that they will no doubt love to pieces, into a full grown dog. I wonder if they would overcome their fear that way. Just a thought. :roll:
I think they would. OES dogs are so friendly and playful they would love it! Thanks

Great!!
NEOESR by any chance?
Yes that's them!!
Sorry! I thought you were looking only for breeders. My wife and I separately were both on NEOESR's board of directors for a spell. I would have been happy to refer you to them, they are all about the dogs and finding the perfect furever home for the dog!

Good luck, I hope they find the right match for you soon!
Thank you. I was looking for a breeder.. I didn't know an OES could ever be rescued. I can't imagine anyone giving one up! Thanks for all the support!
