Dalmatian Adopts Orphaned Spotted Lamb

We’ve seen our fair share of unlikely animal pairings, but this one is definitely a contender for the top spot in terms of cuteness. A Dalmatian on a farm in Australia took in an orphaned black and white spotted lamb, reports the Associated Press.

According the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, the adorable lamb's unique coat is a result of its purebred white Dorper father and cross-bred Dorper and Van Rooy mother. We're not too familiar with the various sheep breeds, but one thing is certain; that mix sure results in one adorable lamb!

So, what should this spotted animal be called? Owner John Bolton suggests "Sheep-matian" or  "Dal-dorper. We sort of like "Lamb-ation" or maybe something simple (and totally cliché) like "Spot."
