2nd sheepdog

Hello! I have a 1 1/2 yr. old unneutered male. He's at home by himself during the day and I was considering getting him a "companion". He has a great temperant and needs a lot of attention. Does anyone know how OES react with other OES? Though he seems to want to play with other dogs he encounters, would he react differently with another OES in his own territory? Any jealousy issues? Male/Female preference? Thanks!

:D We have the most adorable sheep dog, but we can't take care of him any more. He's my daughter's dog and she's going to college. We've had him since he was a puppy and he's very loving. I think he would be good with another OES because he was raised with another puppy the same age. Anyone interested?

Can you tell me more about your OES? I have a 2 year old OES male who is a great. My wife and I have been strongly considering getting him some company.

Pls also tell me what part of the country you are in.

Thank You

We have wonderful OES rescue groups throughout the country. Great people do need to find new homes for their beloved sheepies due to a variety of circumstances. The OES rescue groups screen prospective families VERY carefully, and conduct home visits of the adopting home. They want to ensure that an adopting family knows what they are getting into (it IS a sheepdog after all) and have some practical and realistic sense of the personality, upkeep and activity level of the breed.

If you want to send me an email with your geographic region and country, I can find out who your closest OES Rescue contact is, and can give you the contact information. fbatchelor@earthlink.net

I'd also suggest that the person looking for a sheepdog may wish to contact their regional OES rescue. Adopting a dog through rescue is a very sensible option. Rescue will have evaluated the dog, and often has a sense of the dog's history, quirks, needs, etc. If the Rescue dog ends up having difficulty with your dog, or vice versa, Rescue will take the dog back into the program.

I've lived with quite a few OES. I have had a male/male combo that co existed well and male/female combo too. It has really depended on the dogs.

Good luck
