Meet Nelson; the world’s worst sheepdog, and watch his comical adventure as sheep chase him, the one they’re supposed to follow.


In the countryside, where sheepdogs reign supreme for their skill in herding and protecting livestock, one little dog named Nelson challenges the status quo — but not in the way you might expect. 

Nelson, a ‘part’ Norfolk terrier, recently found himself at the center of a somewhat amusing turn of events, earning him the title of the world’s worst sheepdog.

Nelson’s Hurry Up

The spectacle unfolded as Nelson attempted to give the sheep a “hurry up,” a task traditionally performed with precision by experienced sheepdogs. 

However, the sheep seemed unimpressed with Nelson’s herding attempts and decided to turn the tables on him instead. The chase that ensued was nothing short of comedic.

The Heart of a Lion, The Size of a Terrier

Despite the comical outcome, it’s clear that this ‘part’ Norfolk terrier possesses the heart of a lion. 

His willingness to engage with the sheep highlights the animals‘ unpredictable and often humorous nature.

This unlikely sheepdog’s adventure serves as a light-hearted reminder that not all attempts at herding will go according to plan. Nelson’s story has quickly captured the hearts of many.

While Nelson may not have a future as a top sheepdog. His efforts and the ensuing sheep chase have provided a good laugh and a memorable moment that underscores the joy animals bring into our lives. 

Nelson’s spirited attempt at herding and the sheep’s humorous response remind us that unexpected adventures leave the most lasting impressions.

Nelson is my hero. Brave enough to take on a whole herd of sheep with love. Then, look at his size, a little gem in a 50 lbs bag of nuts 🥜.
