Shhh! Don't Tell Lamo the Sheep He's Not a Dog [w/pix, video]
Dogster ^ | Apr 25th 2013 | Michael Leaverton

The little lamb arrived at Rockfield Animal Rescue in Wentnor, England, after being run over by a car, according to the Telegraph. Owner Jennifer Jones fed him milk and raised him with her other dogs, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier (Wallace), a Jack Russell (Judy), and a Labrador (Poppy).

Now Lamo think he's one of them. He fetches sticks, tries to bark, wears a collar and a leash, and goes for walks.

"He really is wonderful, he follows us around everywhere and is always under our feet," she says. "He doesn't care about the other sheep, he prefers humans. He's always trying to get our attention and is constantly getting up to mischief."

Lamo is a little lamb
His fleece is white as snow...
And everywhere the doggies went
Lamo was sure to go.

We once had a cat that grew up with a bunch of dogs. He ended up being quite “uncatlike”. He would go for walks, fetch things, and just had a general doglike attitude.

He also would “watch” at the windows with the dogs for animals and people he didn’t like there, and was quite capable of chasing other animals (like stray cats in the yard) with the dogs. He worked as sort of a third dog in that manner - like a member of the pack.

I had a pet pig we raised with some puppies when I was a kid who grew up thinking he was a dog.

Love the pictures and the video! My twin daughters used to raise Suffolk sheep for the Stock Show and they had to tend and walk them everyday. They were very gentle and it was like losing pets when they were finally sold.

We have a small 10 lb. dog but he is afraid of any animal except cats. He’ll go upnto the fence to say Hi to the goat but that’s about it. She is older (8) and her kidding days are over so we got the kittens to keep her company and they are like her babies.

When I give Mira hay and the cats are hungry it’s so funny. They look at me when they see her eating as if to say Is it good? Why don’t I want to eat hay??
