We all have the occasional identity crisis, but this is one of the sweetest ones to date.

Enter Olive the pig, who thinks she’s a dog, and spends her days frolicking with Tilly the British bulldog, Alfie the Boston terrier, and Lola the French bulldog at their home in Sydney, Australia.

The gang belongs to Alissa and Nick Childs, who adopted Olive in October 2015, according to Mashable. The couple is hoping to continue to grow their eclectic family, and add a miniature donkey to the group.

Though Alissa was nervous at first to introduce Olive to the canine crew, she said Olive quickly felt right at home once she met her brothers and sisters.

“When we brought her home we locked the dogs away and let her have a look around the house, but she was hiding and so scared,” Childs told the Daily Telegraph. “But as soon as the dogs were allowed out, she calmed down. She’s just such a social creature.”

Olive quickly took cues from her new dog friends, learning how to bark and play like a pup.

“She definitely behaves as though she is one of the dogs,” Alissa told Mashable. “She spends every hour of the day with them, plays with them like a dog, she naps with them. If the dogs run at the gate to bark at something in the street, she races with them.”
