How about that?

A dog who looks after a lamb is quite unusual even more so when the dog is a male puppy. Kluifje was rejected by her mother and Whisky, a 6 month old Bouvier des Flandres adopted it. Whisky started licking it and the lamb obviously accepted Whisky as its mother. They are inseparable and the little lamb spends its day asleep next to Whisky who keeps watch, licks it and takes it by the scruff of the neck when it strays too far. Whisky’s owners bottle feed the lamb 7 times a day and will look after it until it is time for it to go and live with the flock. How will Whisky react?

That is so adorable. Funny that a male dog will do this. I hope Whisky will find another pal when the time comes.
Reminds me of the story of the rhino and the tortoise pair. I don't have the reference now but maybe you saw it a while ago.
