The sheep who thinks he’s a dog

Marley the sheep was adopted by Ali Vaughan and her family from Cumbria when he was just one month old.

Ali told BBC Radio 5 live's Anna Foster that Marley spent a lot of time with their pet dog Jess, after he developed an infection.

Jess and Marley became best friends – with Marley joining Jess for walks and eating dog biscuits.

Now the family's other sheep, Bear, is giving Marley lessons on how to be a ‘proper’ sheep.
