- Owner says dog and lamb have been inseparable since lamb was attacked by fox
An unlikely pair of furry friends are spotted together across a flooded creek, with a tiny lamb aided by her canine companion.
Images captured by Jo Calliss, who lives in Port Lincoln, South Australia, shows her Anatolian Sheepdog Abla patiently leading a seven-week-old lamb named June down a waterway on a walk.
Mrs. Calliss says that June was quite hesitant to cross the water.
The adorable video shows the sheep turning to Abla for help when she’s not sure what to do when she reaches some submerged stepping stones.
Once Abla has passed with ease, June happily trots after her friend.
Mrs. Calliss said: narrative that June was attacked by a fox when she was only a day old.
She said June suffered serious head and leg injuries after being attacked in broad daylight while Abla, a livestock guard dog whose name aptly means “big sister,” was off duty.

“She has made a remarkable recovery and adores all of her canine friends, but especially Abla,” Ms Calliss said, adding that the couple are “inseparable.”
In a Twitter post, Jo said that Abla’s purpose in life is to protect her sheep.
