Our English Shepherds are excellent family farm dogs.  More info coming later but enjoy a few pix and this quote from the English Shepherd Club.

“English Shepherds are intelligent, alert, responsive working dogs. They are exceptionally devoted, and have a strong desire to work¬† in partnership with their owner, whatever the task.

HERDING
English Shepherds are natural low heelers, with strong herding instinct. They exhibit agility, stamina, and stout hearted perseverance and will use the amount of force necessary to accomplish the job. Their natural instincts enable them to work with a minimum of direction, however, and they can be trusted to not bother livestock when help is not needed.”
