Shirley is four times the size of any other sheep, also being the fattest and laziest one of all, she has to be pushed around to go anywhere. She eats just about all foods, her age is not mentioned. She is useful as a trampoline, battering ram, etc. She also hides food in her fleece, and lots of things get stuck in there. In "Shape Up with Shaun", Shaun puts her on a diet and for a while, she is slim until she is catapulted head first into a pie van. Shirley is also wealthy, although the flock did not know it until the episode "In The Doghouse".
Shirley is also the strongest sheep in the flock; In "The Piano" she stops the piano from falling down the stairs. In "We Wish Ewe a Merry Christmas" she drags a huge Christmas tree back to the farm.
Despite her peaceful outlook, Shirley can become highly aggressive, and angry if things may not turn out for her or if something goes wrong. It is revealed that in the episode "Foxy Laddie" in which The Fox dresses up like a sheep in which Shirley falls in love with. Upon realising that the sheep is in fact The Fox, Shirley becomes angry and heartbroken. With the help of Shaun and the flock, she's able to corner The Fox in the local tools shed and Shirley ends up beating him up with a frying pan. This is seen again in the episode "Lockout" when Pidsley tries to scare off Shaun, but her big size overwhelmed the cat, and then she beats up Pidsley and nails him to a wall in underwear.

- Shirley can do cartwheels. The Flock didn't knew it until "Hidden Talents".
- Shirley isn't always greedy, as shown in "Happy Farmers Day" episode. Bitzer made a pie for the farmer and put it by the window to cool down, but Shirley noticed it and tried to take the pie, but the metal was too hot. Timmy showed Shirley some oven mittens, so she used them and put it inside the freezer, but Bitzer accused her of eating the pie, but Timmy showed them the pie later on at the end of the episode.
- In "Shape Up with Shaun", Shirley puts on her diet for a while and is slim after her rigorous regime but then she catapults herself into the pie van.
- In "Buzz Off Bees", she was first stung by the bees and in another episode in Series 4, "The Spider", she was afraid of a spider and screamed because of the spider in her front right hoof.
- In "Saturday Night Shaun", during the end, she eats a music player, making the flock want to dance.
- She weighs as much as 26 bricks.
- As seen in Weighlifting, one of the Championsheeps episode, we see that Shaun had to lift a weight that had Shirley on one side and two other sheep on the other side. As told above, Shirley weighs 26 bricks, which made the two sheep on the other side also weigh 26 bricks if the weight is balanced. Therefore, each sheep, except Shaun, Timmy and Shirley, weighs around 13 bricks.
