Tails wag as dog, sheep reunite with family

That saga of the dog and the sheep strolling near a freeway off-ramp last week has come to a happy end, according to the Daily News.

The two were affectionate and inseparable - with the sheep following the dog everywhere, including into the car of their rescuer - and news of their unlikely friendship attracted dozens of visitors every day to the West Valley Animal Shelter. On Saturday, a mother and daughter from Granada Hills heard about the media reports from a neighbor and came forward to claim the pair, producing photos that satisfied shelter officials.

Apparently, the animals escaped when someone accidentally left a gate open.
