Old Welsh Grey Sheepdog  History

The Old Welsh Grey Sheepdog, or as others called it, the Old Welsh is originated from Wales. The breed was created to help the shepherds’ jobs, to collect the flock. Just like the Bearded Collie, the Welsh Grey worked in a loose-eyed, but the very noisy manner with a distinctive short, yet loud bark. This differentiates them from the Border and other collie types breeds. The breed was famous among shepherds, and among drovers who took livestock to England too because the breed was very easy to train.

Welsh Greys were long-haired, shaggy, large to medium-sized dogs, very similar in exterior appearance and in behavioral nature to the Scottish Bearded Collie or to the ancestors of the Old English Sheepdog, therefore, these breeds presumably have a common heritage.

In 1949, the author of The Observer’s Book of Dogs, Clifford Hubbard, described the breed more vividly: “An unbeautiful dog much like a small old-fashioned Bearded Collie.” Moreover, most of the cynologists presume that the Old Welsh Grey, as it was sometimes called, is an ancestor of the Bearded Collie, a most decidedly beautiful breed. Apart from their looks, the Old Welsh Grey Sheepdog had a great temperament. They were very active, intelligent, hardworking, and confident in their nature. The dogs also quickly adjusted to any new environmental change, yet the breed was considered to be one of the most emotional dog breeds, for the fact that even a soft punishment affected them deeply.

According to most experts, the breed is nowadays considered to be extinct, although some still hope that there are few dogs left in isolation, living remotely in the Welsh mountains, based on their belief that, in the late 1980s the breed was still found on Welsh hill farms in the upper Towy Valley. Thanks to the immigrations of Welsh farmers in the early 20th century, the breed got to Patagonia with their owners. It is more likely than not, that the Patagonian Sheepdog or the Barbucho is descended from the Old Welsh.
