This is one full-service sheepdog.

Jess the English Springer Spaniel lives on a 180-acre farm in Devon, England, where she happily helps her owner care for her flock of 270 sheep — even holding bottles in her mouth to feed four orphaned lambs, reports Today.

"I taught her to hold the milk bottle in her mouth, and she did the rest,” says Louise Moorhouse, owner of the 10-year-old dog. “It's very funny when she runs across the field gripping the bottle."

Moorhouse says Jess, who learned to hold the bottle when she was just a puppy, also helps out on the farm by carrying feed and farm equipment — and gets rewarded with affection from the sheep.
