A SHEEP who was hand-reared by his owners on a Sutherland croft has surprised his owners by behaving just like a pet dog.

Dave the sheep enjoys eating scones, goes for daily walks with his owners Amanda and Hugh MacRae and Hugh’s son Euan, and even sneaks into the house by opening doors with his hooves.

Dave and twin sister May were hand-reared when they were born in May 2011, and once they reached maturity Dave refused to interact with the other sheep so was kept as a family pet.
