Farmer Turns Car Into Dog After His Beloved Sheepdog Passes Away

We suspect he may have taken some inspiration from Dumb and Dumber...


We’ve all heard of guard dog but lets us introduce you to the car dog…

Farmer Dave Isaac was left heartbroken after his beloved dog Floss’ time of chasing sheep was cut short.

In a bid to cheer himself up, Isaac spent £2,000 (€2,550) transforming his Peugeot estate into a sheepdog. Yes, you read that correctly.


Despite reservations from neighbours and friends, the 46-year-old from Battle, East Sussex made the adjustments to his vehicle in his barn.

“I know it was a bit of a mad thing to do but it was a tribute to my old sheepdog Floss who passed away,” Isaac said.

“I have three kids and we loved her and as a family we all missed her terribly”.


Unfortunately Floss the car dog isn’t cut out for farm life. Isaac is placing it on eBay and reverting back to more traditional methods of herding sheep.

“It’s been a lot of fun and she handles well, is obedient and nice and docile and surprisingly aerodynamic. But it’s back to the tried and tested traditional skills of the sheepdog again”.

We suspect he may have taken some inspiration from Dumb and Dumber.
