The Old English Sheepdog was developed in England's West Country by farmers who needed an agile cattle driver and sheep herder to take their animals to market.
Sometimes called "Bobtail," the Old English Sheepdog's tail was customarily docked in the 18th century as a way of identifying tax-exempt herding dogs. Farmers sheared their dogs each spring when they sheared the sheep, and then used the dogs' hair to make warm blankets and clothing.
