Eager Border Collie Pup Leads Entire Sheep Herd Through the House

Rocky was just trying to be the best version of himself. 

But he might have been a little too eager when he led his flock of sheep down the hallway into the kitchen of his home. Owner Rosalyn Edwards of Devon, England was able to capture video of the mayhem that ensued when Rocky led the sheep through the house.

Check out the video from Fortitude Press:

Rocky the Border Collie puppy was only seven months old when this happened in 2017 and he was just really excited to do a good job herding. As a sheepdog puppy it's what he was born to do, after all.

Rosalyn was in the kitchen when she heard a strange noise. It wasn't long before she realized the pasture gate was left open. Rocky knew he had to step up to job when the nine sheep escaped through the open gate. So instead of leading the entire flock back into the enclosure, the young sheepdog decided to bring them to his master. She would know what to do.

All of a sudden, nine sheep barreled into the Edwards home and although it was comical, the sheep were clearly scared when they realized they had nowhere to go in the tight hallway. The surprise visitors also left some presents along the way. 

"It was funny at the time, but then there was quite a lot of wee, poo and mud everywhere," Rosalyn told the BBC.


The mother of three took her children to another room so they wouldn't get trampled by the herd. By opening the back door, the sheep eventually made their way through the house and out to the yard again, with loyal Rocky nipping at their heels.  

Even though there was a lot of mess to clean up, and there were likely some nervous sheep after the debacle, Rosalyn and her family weren't mad at Rocky. The seven-month-old sheepdog-in-training was simply allowing his herding instinct to take over.

"Rocky did look quite pleased with himself, but he's going to need more training. He brought a whole new meaning to 'bringing the sheep home'."
