Rory, the horse who thinks he's a dog

Just like his labrador friends, he wags his tail, fetches sticks and rolls on his back to have his tummy tickled.

But the hooves and mane give away his real identity - as a Shetland pony.

Eight-week-old Rory picked up his canine traits after he was befriended by dogs at the Essex Horse and Pony Sanctuary in Pitsea.

Owner Sue Allery said: "In 18 years I've never seen anything like it. When vets visit us they can't believe it either."
