Who is your mama?

It's difficult to tell which is the most confused after a Dalmatian dog adopted a lamb with a spotty coat.

The black and white lamb was born at a dog breeder's farm in South Australia's Barossa Valley.  After being rejected by his mother he was quickly adopted by dog Zoe and the pair are now inseparable, much to the amusement of breeders John and Julie Bolton.

Zoe was quick to show the abandoned lamb love and affection - licking her adoptive son affectionately and generally taking care of him.

Now the spotty lamb, a cross between a pure-bred white Dorper ram and a Dorper and Van Rooy ewe, happily follows her around the farm and even sleeps inside the dog kennel.

Mrs Bolton said the confused little lamb had even tried to suckle from Zoe but had to make do with a bottle instead.
