Please help us find the right dog for you by providing complete answers to the questions below. The more we know, the better we are able to make each adoption successful.

Please read the Terms of Adoption. If you agree to the terms, proceed with this on-line application.

Our volunteers may not be able to provide an immediate response to your application. We thank you in advance for your patience. You will be contacted when an appropriate dog becomes available. Thanks.

Please note that if you are selected to adopt a dog, you will need to personally pick up the dog from the foster home. We do not ship dogs to their new homes.

Please review the whole form before entering your data.

Most Old English Sheepdogs are not good with young children. The herding instinct (purposely bred into them) is so strong that OES tend to be rough and sometimes aggressive with young kids at play. Therefore, we need to know if you have or plan to have young children (under age 10) in your home.
In order to adopt an OES from this program, it is necessary for you to have a personal interview and grooming lesson with one of our volunteers. The purpose of the interview is to acquaint you with the breed, its problems and in particular, grooming.

Only one more step! Please click the Verify Application button below.

This will give you the chance to examine your application one last time before you actually submit it to be processed.
