Post Boy Raised by Dog Found in South Siberia

Boy Raised by Dog Found in South Siberia

Regional authorities in the Siberian Altai region have discovered a seven-year-old boy who has been raised by a guard dog since he was three months old, the site reports, citing regional papers.

When authorities discovered the boy, Andrei, in the care of a guard dog three weeks ago, he did not know how to speak, and behaved much like a dog: he walks on all fours, bites, and first smells the food he is given.

Default Amazing ...

will be interesting to see how the boy will be able to integrate into society and interact with people. He will probably not like people too much and feel more comfortable around animals in general.

My Goodness...that seems unreal. At 3mths. old how did the boy eat? I guess if the baby boy pottied, the dog cleaned him up. What about clothes, was he naked? What about being to hot & cold in the weather? Babies & toddlers are always gettin into things and putting things in there mouth. Then theres sickness, running fever, teething etc. Was he underweight when the police found him? Did the parents live out in the country? Did they have no close family & friends near by? "WHAT A VERY SMART DOG AND A LUCKY BOY TO HAVE FINALLY BEEN FOUND". Hes still young enough I think he`ll be ok and get the help he needs. Im sure it will take a long time.

Default Hmm I donno ...

You raise very cool questions MY1BOXER . And that is exactly why I call their bluff. Story does sound magnificant .. but as you said unreal... and that is what it is. Dogs can indeed do amazing things. But for 7 years ... since 3 months old ... common guys. Oh and by the way the Russian version of the story claimed that the Motehr left the baby when he was 3 months old... and the father was a drunk and then left and never came back. Where they alegidly found teh boy WAS the coutry MY1BOXER. Siberian country.. do you have any idea what kind of winters there are in Siberia .. if anyone is reading this from Alaska.. you might have a slight clue. I was born and raised in Ukrain and winters there are no joke compared to most climats in the US. BUt Siberian winters are -40° C, I beleive thats where °C and °F meet.. so its -40° F as well. I would beleive the story if it claimed that a dog took care of a boy above 3 years old at least... for a couple of months during summer time there, but thats where i draw the line.
People dont change, people relaize.

"He still cannot talk, and has only made friends with a girl."

Reminds me of the old joke with the punchline: "Because he can."

I guess every culture has its own equivalent of the National Enquirer.
