An incredible breed that once graced farms across America, these dogs are now so rare that most people have never even heard of them.

Meet the English Shepherd. Not to be confused with the Old English Sheepdog! English Shepherds are the All-American, “old-time farm collie” whose history is grounded in the daily work of family farms.

Bred to be the ultimate all-around helper of the farm, English Shepherds can handle a huge variety of tasks.
