This sheep was lost in the woods for five years! After five long years of chilling in the forest he was successfully recovered. Only, he had changed a bit. He had gained about 80 pounds, in wool alone! This guy was longgg overdue for a haircut and a freshening up. The poor fella was so covered in wool his face was barely visible.

He makes an amazing transformation after being recovered and given the haircut he truly deserves. He looks like a whole new sheep and his adorable face is finally completely visible. We love watching wholesome animal transformations of all kinds! Sheep, doggos, cute lil kitty cats, you name it we want to see it. Enjoy!

For those who are not familiar with the breed, Sheep Dogs are a dog breed historically used in connection with the raising of sheep. Their responsibilities can vary from being used to guard sheep and other livestock in farms for formers, to herding sheep and other livestock. Based on the video, this sheepdog's job was to herd the large group of sheep.

When one lamb decides that he has had enough of this tyrannical reign, he approaches the sheepdog and steps out of the herd. The sheepdog is clearly not used to this kind of rebellion, as he does not handle the situation particularly effectively. Oh well, you know what they say. All bark no bite. That's not necessarily a bad thing though, we like to see issues resolved as peacefully as possible!

Enjoy this wholesome exchange!

Sleepy Lambs Carried By Donkey In Specially-Tailored Saddles

Sometimes, animal mommas need breaks too. And when they're babies are too tired to walk on their own, other animals and humans come to the rescue. Such is the case with these donkey nannies carrying newborn little lambs on their especially-made saddles, and the lambs look so content and happy, we cannot help but smile. 

Laying in their little pockets and looking ready for a nap, these little lambs are some of the most adorable we've ever seen. Each one of them has the cutest itty bitty face in the world, and their mommas look just as happy as their lambs to finally be getting their well-earned break.

Doggo Successful Herds A Lawn Roomba (Tumblr Thread)

My goodness do we love dogs. They're loyal, always adorable, playful, and sometimes just plain wacky. Dogs are capable of so many awesome tricks and their instinctive nature is always mesmerizing.  If you work really hard at training a dog, chances are they can accomplish more than we realize -- even communicating! Dogs who herd are not only trained but they have the instinct to do so naturally. Even if they don't technically have sheep to herd...like Arwen, for example. 

Tumblr user, gallusrostromegalu, revealed the story of how his dog, Arwen, decided to herd a lawn Roomba. Strap on those seatbelts, folks, we're in for a fun ride!

Unlikely Animal Relationships: Cats And Sheep

Today's unlikely relationships treat is cats with sheep. Cats have an insanely unfair reputation of being too unfriendly. People who don't own cats simply do not understand just how cuddly they can be. With humans or with other animals, cats tend to gravitate toward whoever is kind to them. Of course, kindness for cats is not the same as, say- kindness for dogs. 

Cats appreciate their space, they appreciate respect, they believe in being independent and treated as such. And they very highly appreciate floof. Floof is one of the ultimate things that cats are attracted to. And who has more fluff that sheep? So, while on its face, cats and sheep may look like an unlikely relationship, once you think about it, it kind of does make sense.

This may be the shortest video we've ever featured, but it's too important not to share with you! The absolute careless bliss and wholesomeness! 

And for all those who believe in spirit animals, we believe we found you another wonderful contender! This lazy, or simply happy, sheep is laying in a field of grass... and eating, as it lays. So much simplicity and beauty in these 9 seconds. You can almost see the sheep smiling as it eats. 

Why wouldn't it? We're smiling watching the sheep smile. And we hope you're smiling at the sheep's blissful state and adorable smile.

Kristin Harkness and Jay Yonz from North Carolina are a very unique couple with a giant heart. 

The animal-mad couple decided to spend all of their savings on giving their adopted disabled sheep a better quality of life, rather than go ahead with their wedding. And if that's not enough, they also run refuge with more than 62 disabled animals including dogs and cats. 

What an inspirational couple!

The Valais Blacknose sheep (Or in German: Walliser Schwarznasenschaf) is a breed of domestic sheep originating in the Valais region of Switzerland. These Sheep are unmistakable with their black faces, ears and long spiral horns, black patches on their knees, hocks and feet. They are extremely friendly and seem to love us as much as we love them.
