Mistaken Identity: Jack the Lamb Thinks He’s a Sheep Dog

‘Baaah humbug,’ says Jack to those who say he should act like a lamb.

Looking for a sheep thrill?

Meet Jack the lamb that has gone on the lamb from being a lamb.

He acts—fetches a stick, wears a collar, and jumps up on his hind legs—like a sheep dog.

The six-month-old woolly furball was rescued after birth and brought home by Alison Sinstadt and Simon Sherwin of Market Drayton, a small town in Shropshire, England.

Almost immediately, Jack took to the couple’s nine-year-old springer spaniel, Jessie.

“He thinks he’s a dog, but he doesn’t eat dog food,” said Sinstadt to Metro. “He grazes along the canal towpath. He is very much part of the family now. We wouldn’t want him ending up as lamb chops.”
