People throughout the world know about sheepdogs. These animals are bred for farm work, specifically the task of herding all of the sheep into one place. These dogs are swift and loud, making the sheep afraid. In fear, the all herd together and the sheepdog has accomplished its task. Any good sheepdog has been trained to know how to properly herd the sheep, though much of it comes instinctively.

However, despite the popularity of sheepdogs on farms, not many have heard of a sheep rabbit. That’s where Champis the herding rabbit comes into play. Unlike the dogs, Champis hasn’t received any type of training or breeding that makes it a great herder. While fast, it is not loud. Instead, after countless times of watching the sheepdogs, Champis decided that he wanted to give it a try. So, he did and he was very successful.


Owner of the Rabbit, Greta Virgren, spoke to The Local about the self-taught, sheep herding rabbit. He says, “He learnt the skills himself, we had nothing to do with it. He surely has seen the dogs doing it before, but really, Champis thinks he is the king of the farm, and that he owns the sheep.”

Dan Westman,  friend of the farm owner, is a sheepdog breeder that writes a blog about life on the farm in Sweden, captured Champis in action. The video is five minutes long, showing Champis herding the sheep within the pen.

Champis may only weight a little bit and be small in size, but in his mind it seems his is king of the world. Nothing seems to stop this little guy from doing a good deed. In a recent story on Westman’s blog, the rabbit saved one of his favorite hens from a ram in the barn. Truly this little guy is all about helping others out.

The farm is located in northern Sweden. Over the course of the past week, the video of Champis on the farm has gained a rapid following. It has received more than 650,000 views. The success of this video has boggled the mind of Westman, who was not expecting such a response at all. In his interview with The Local he was asked his thoughts on the popularity of the video. He simply responded that he didn’t know and said, “Maybe you can tell me why?”

With such popularity, Westman wants to make sure it is used for good. In a blog post he said in a bit of broken English, “Now when the video of Champis being such a success on YouTube, we want to use that in a positive way. We want him to be a symbol of a little goodness in the world…”
