Dalmatian adopts abandoned lamb

After a lamb was abandoned by its mother, a female Dalmatian named Zoe has decided to adopt the baby lamb, who looks incredibly similar to the dog. Located in South Australia's Barossa Valley, Julie Bolton laughed when she first saw the baby lamb.

"It is truly spotted. Black spots on a white-based coat which is the same as a dalmatian," she said to ABC news.  

The Dalmatian cleans, licks and mothers the baby lamb and in return, the lamb tries to mother up to her udder.

Julie says, "The lamb follows the dog but it gets its milk from me from the bottle."
