When ‘Pet’ the sheep was tragically orphaned, she was swiftly taken under the wing of this beautiful collie sheep dog. In time Pet stopped acting like a sheep, and started adopting the characteristics of a sheep dog. Short of barking, and pooping on your doorstep, Pet goes full dog thug life in this hilarious clip.

 

Pet lives in Wales, a beautiful little country next to England. Although we live a long, long way away, the folks at TB hope to meet Pet one day.
