OES Rescue & Welfare Society


In Memory of Derek Earnshaw

11.12.1929 to 03.12.2020

Derek and Enid Earnshaw have been rehoming Old English Sheepdogs for more than 30 years, Sadly Derek passed away suddenly on Tuesday the 3rd of December. Derek’s commitment and passion for rescuing Old English was colossal working with Gill Harwood for many years and with ourselves for 15 years. Derek’s help and advise has been invaluable and on many occasions not only fostered dogs for us but taken them on full time. A lovely kind hearted man who will be sadly missed by all.

The society has been set-up:

  • To care for the health and welfare of the breed.
  • To re-home any dogs in need of a loving home.
  • To provide new owners with advice .
  • To direct potential new owners to reputable breeders.
  • To promote the good nature of the breed.
