A lamb with markings like a dalmatian dog is turning heads in South Australia's Barossa Valley.
The lamb belongs to local dalmatian breeder Julie Bolton and has been adopted by one of her dogs after being abandoned by its mother.
Ms Bolton says she laughed when she first saw the animal.
"It is truly spotted. Black spots on a white-based coat which is the same as a dalmatian," she said.
"Now the mother who doesn't have puppies at the moment is actually cleaning it and licking it and mothering it and it tries to mother up to her udder.
