Article Photos: Pocket dogs making old English sheepdogs rare 1/3

This September 2010 photo provided by Old English Sheepdog Club of America shows English Sheepdog, Georgie Girl, in the top twenty at an Old English Sheepdog of America competition. Breeders in the United States and England are concerned about the drop in the number of purebred sheepdog puppies registered in the two countries each year, as more owners choose smaller dogs like pocket pets and designer puppies.
