Chihuahua Loves Herding Sheep

(DOGS/ANIMAL VIDEO) BRITAIN — You may have read the story about Ci, the border collie, who was afraid of the sheep he was supposed to herd, and now there is Nancy, a chihuahua who could teach Ci a thing or two about sheep herding. The rescued chihuahua was taken to Ali Taylor, who trains rescued border collies at Battersea, when she was only 3 weeks old. Taylor decided to let Nancy try her paw at herding when the tiny pooch showed interest in watching the other dogs herd. It quickly became evident that Nancy was a natural at herding sheep. Who would have thought that a 2.5 pound dog could corral sheep 10 times her size? As Yoda would say, "Judge me by my size, do you?" -- Global Animal

Who Fights Crime In Your Neighborhood? (VIDEO)

(DOG VIDEO) Who do you turn to for comfort when awoken by that creepy,crackling sound in the middle of the night? Who guards your home when you're forced to leave your companion behind? Who alerts you when an unknown presence approaches you on an early morning walk? The new music video by the Swedish House Mafia, titled "Save The World," endows a troupe of dogs with the responsibility to protect the neighborhood from cat burglars.
