Springer Spaniel Feeding Lambs With A Baby Bottle - Video below
Having owned two Springer Spaniels myself and absolutely adoring the Breed i had the privilege of watching the TV programme which featured this amazing Dog Jess, Feeding the lambs with a baby bottle. And they live not very far away from me on a farm near Exeter - Devon. Enjoy the story and video below.
Even to a hungry young lamb, this doesn’t look much like mum. But when teatime strikes and you’re gasping with thirst, who cares?
Three times a day, rain or shine, Jess the springer spaniel goes out on her milk round – to feed orphaned lambs from a baby bottle she carries in her mouth.
Louise Moorhouse, who has 270 sheep on her 180-acre farm, can’t imagine managing without Jess.
‘It’s like having an extra pair of hands,’ Louise said.
‘She’s been doing it ever since she was a puppy. I taught her to hold the bottle in her mouth and she did the rest. It’s very funny when she runs across the field gripping the bottle.’ The farm, near Exeter, is linked to the Devon Wildlife Trust and specialises in rare-breed sheep. Ten-year-old Jess is currently ‘mother’ to four Dorset Horn lambs which could not be fed by their own mothers.
And a young apprentice – Lily the cocker spaniel – is already in training for the day when Jess hangs up her baby bottle. Original Source
