Sheep Thinks He's a Dog

This week's Animal Oddity is about an animal with a bit of an identity crisis. Jack is a sheep from Shropshire, England that befriended the family dog and seemingly adopted his canine pal's habits, including fetching sticks and walking on a leash.

His owners even claim that he tries to bark like a dog and attempts to herd his fellow sheep.

While some have taken this as a sign of some kind of mental infirmity, others attribute it to cunning genius that will make Jack a pet and spare him from the ultimate fate of his livestock brethren.

Check out this video to learn what Jack's owners plan for this confused but cute animal oddity!
