Breeder Referral

If you are considering adding an Old English Sheepdog to your family, we encourage you to read OESCA's Breed Pamphlet and the article "Buying and Owning an Old English Sheepdog". Doing some homework up front will give you a better idea whether the Old English Sheepdog is the right breed for you and will help you find a responsible, ethical breeder.

The Old English Sheepdog Club of America does not endorse specific breeders or litters of puppies and maintains no involvement in agreements between buyers and sellers. Not all OESCA members have chosen to participate in this list. Inclusion in this directory is not a guarantee of quality, ability or health. It is the responsibility of the buyer to verify all information and references.

The breeders listed are OESCA members in good standing and have signed OESCA's Code of Ethics.

The following minimum health tests are required for all breeding stock with normal results (passing grade):   Hip Dysplasia by OFA or PennHip;  Eye Examination by a Boarded ACVO Ophthalmologist; Evaluation for Autoimmune Thyroiditis by an approved lab; **DNA test for Exercise Induced Collapse (EIC).

The following health tests are strongly recommended for all breeding stock:  Cardiac Evaluation; BAER test for Congenital Deafness; **DNA test for Multiple Drug Sensitivity (MDRI); **DNA test for Cerebellar Degeneration (CA); **DNA test for Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD).

**DNA testing allows for an "unaffected" individual (Carrier) to be used for breeding when bred to another DNA tested "unaffected" (Clear) individual for the same genetic disorder.
