Hilarious footage has emerged of a little Dachshund puppy rounding up dozens of sheep on a farm.
Four-month-old sausage dog Henry James filled in as sheep dog for the day on owner Bree How’s Tunbridge property in Tasmania’s midlands region on Tuesday.
Despite not being from the normal sheep dog breed, the adorable pup passed his first test with flying colours.

Despite his tiny size and being outnumbered by dozens of sheep, Henry James took no time settling into his new role.
He shows the sheep who’s boss as he barks at the flock and trots alongside them as they’re herded into a nearby animal pen.

Delighted that his hard work is complete, the cheeky pup then ignores calls to return to his pleased owner.
‘Sausage Sheep Dog,’ Ms How captioned the adorable footage on social media.
‘He loves coming to work on the farm,’ she told Storyful.

Best known for their playful and sociable nature, Dachshunds aren’t usually regarded as a traditional working sheep dog breed in Australia.
Traditional breeds include border collies, Australian cattle dogs and kelpies.
