Shelter Dog Turns Into A Sheepherding Chihuahua [VIDEO]

Subscribe to Mix 94.1 on

Check out this amazing Chihuahua, Nancy, a shelter dog turned sheepherder.

Tiny Nancy weighs just 2.5 lbs but she has proven her expertise in the field, by confidently herding sheep more than six times taller than her.

The plucky pooch was brought into Battersea Dogs & Cats Home two years ago, when she was aged just three weeks old. Nancy had severe sarcoptic mange and had to be hand-reared by the animal charity’s Head of Canine Welfare Training Ali Taylor. Ali decided to adopt Nancy, and as the years passed, she frequently took the tiny dog on visits to farms. Ali explains: “Nancy used to watch all her Border Collie friends herd the sheep and she seemed very interested in what was going on. One day I decided to give her a whirl in the ring and she picked it up straight away. I started in a very controlled environment but it quickly became evident that Nancy has natural ability and loves herding sheep.”

Shelter dogs are the best dogs, because you never know what kind of great dog it will turn out to be, so please when considering a new pet, consider adoption.
