Great Pyrenees Adopts Abandoned Lamb

A loving dog and a tiny baby sheep have formed an unlikely bond after the lamb was rejected by its mother.

Saffron, a two-day-old Shetland sheep, was abandoned by her mother, and none of the other sheep at Fancy Fibers Farm in Farmersville, TX. would have her.

“Without anybody to nurse her, she would have just died,” said Mary Berry, owner of Fancy Fibers Farm. “She had been going up to all the other nursing ewes, and they had pushed her away.”

In her search for a mother, Saffron met Lucy, a Great Pyrenees, and for reasons unknown, the two hit it off instantly. Berry shares their remarkable love story in an interview with WALB: see the youtube video below, captured when Saffron and Lucy were introduced.
