MANITOBA, Canada — A baby lamb at a small farm in Canada has found a surprising new family after being rejected by its mother.

Stormy the lamb was born May 17th on a farm in Canada, and her mother immediately rejected her.

Luckily the lamb was not alone for long.Tammy, the farm owner’s one-year-old golden retriever, stepped in and bonded with Stormy.The two animals are now pretty much inseparable.

“I was outside working all day, and I’d turn around and they’d be (lying) under a tree sleeping, or just hanging out,” Stormy’s owner Cathy Fleury said. “They actually crawled up on the porch once, and they were sleeping up there.”

When the two aren’t sleeping together, they are playing together.

Fleury says Stormy is going to stay on the farm so nothing will get in the way of the two’s unlikely bond.
