Could this be true?
witch doctor farmer Liu Naiying says one of his sheep gave birth to a dog.
The puppy has wool like a lamb but its mouth, nose, eyes, paws and tail look more like a dog's. His sheep dog even plays like a pup.
The birth has prompted thousands to flock to his farm in Shaanxi Province to see for themselves.
The farmer said he found the unusual baby animal shortly after it was born in one of his fields.
"I was herding the sheep, and saw a sheep licking her newborn lamb on the grassland. The lamb was still wet. When I went up close to check on the lamb I was shocked because it looked so weird, like a cross between a sheep and a dog.
Yue Guozhang, a researcher at Xi'an City Animal Husbandry Technology Centre and known party pooper, said sheep and dogs were different species.
"It's not possible that a sheep could become pregnant with a puppy. It's likely that this is just an abnormal lamb."
Yue Guozhang will not crush our sheepdog dreams!
He's too cute to be a one time fluke.
