We sheepies are of course wonderful! What else? laugh out loud
We have lots of energy, we are intelligent and we always want to be with our pack. Sometimes we can be quite stubborn... We need training, otherwise we might became a bit... hmm, hard to handle...

Well, sometimes my "parents'" think I'm a bit stubborn... when actually I'm just thinking things over.

I have a OES/St. Bernard, male 2yrs, he is the most gentle, loving dog, really mellow, lots of laying around, they act goofy like little clowns, he has a 1 yr old golden lab sister that has way to much energy for him and bugs him but he's super protective of her and me. Big bark but no bites. They are great dogs, there a handful (houseful) but worth it.

no tail!

OES train up rather easily as long as you are consistant and low key. As long as the dog has regular exercise they are mellow around the house but do tend to herd the family.
