English Shepherds

Does anyone have any experience with English Shepherds? One has come up for adoption and the person who does our FL Aussie Rescue is friends with the foster mom. We explained that it was too soon after Jesse's passing and we were going on vacation in 3 weeks so we didn't want to adopt before that. She wants us to meet the dog and if we like him the foster mom will keep him until next month. I have read they are similar to Aussies and Rick would like an Aussie again.

Barb, Rick, "Tayla" Ruff Start Hot On The Trail (STAR Puppy) (Born 11/11, Gotcha 3/12) and "Lily" Stargazer's Make It So, CGC (Gotcha 12/21/13)



Cheyenne (CGC) and Jesse (CGC) who will be always loved and never forgotten.

I did a lot of reading about them before I got Brooks, when I was thinking of getting a dog. I think they are also called something or other farm dogs (not sure-it was more than 8 years ago).
But everything I read about them made me want one (and I thought they seemed better than the Australian Shepherds)
