A three-year-old German shepherd named Quickie has adopted a newborn lamb in Tahama County in Missouri as if the little lamb were one of her puppies reported

The Karakas family stated the lamb they have now named Rammy was rejected by her mother.

Quickie and Rammy are now inseparable and play and cuddle together.

The family plans to raise Rammy as part of their family.

German shepherds and similar breeds are well known for being herding dogs and have for generations been raised to care for their flocks on sheep farms. It would seem this very protective instinct of Quickie has helped the two bond.

Rammy turned five days old today; Quickie has a "little lamb and her fleece isn't white as snow," but she sure is adorable to all who see the two together.
