Woman Breastfeeds Puppy

One Woman May Have Taken Breastfeeding a Step Too Far

For many, pets are as much a part of the family as children are. That sentiment certainly holds true for one woman in Colorado, who used her maternal instincts and a particular parenting skill to save her dying pup. When the puppy refused to eat, the woman did the only thing she thought would keep him alive: breastfeed.

"He wasn't moving, and I just did it," the woman, who has remained anonymous for fear of backlash, told a local news channel. "I didn't know what else to do. I was desperate, and I just couldn't bear sitting there watching it die."

Though the woman, who is the mother to a 15-month-old child, agrees that breastfeeding a dog is a bit taboo, she felt it was necessary. It's possible she was right, as the puppy is reportedly doing much better.
