Shep (ボブ,Bobu?, Bob) is a smugdogvillager who first appeared in New Leaf. His name comes from the Sheepdog breed of dog, or the fact that Shepherds sometimes use said dogs to round sheep. His catchphrase in New Leaf, 'baaa man', possibly references the name of the breed of dog he is based on, a Sheepdog. The beginning of the word is another animal's name, a sheep, which makes the sound 'baaa'.
Shep is a dark brown dog with lighter brown hair covering his eyes. His ears are tinted with an even darker brown on the rest of his body. Shep's paws are tipped lighter, and so are his feet. Shep, overall, looks like a sheepdog, the breed of dog he is based off. His nose area is yellow and he has six dark yellow freckles near his mouth and nose. Shep initially wears a washed-out Denim Vest. He carries the Camo Umbrella with him on rainy days.
