that is crazy but that dog must be intelligent to raise a 3 month old baby. I would love for my dog to take care of me if I was abandon by my parents.

I saw a documentary on T.V. about feral children. There have been several similar cases documented and video taped in various places in the world. It's been about a year since I saw this and my poor memory isn't very good with details. But there were children who were found raised by dogs. I don't recall where all the different cases were....some in America and some other places. Another was stuck in a closet for 13 years, only given food and water. She had absolutely no human contact other than the bringing of food and water. There were several others, one in Russia. These poor children were a mess, like a frightened, wild animal, taking on the dogs' sounds, walking on all fours and some other things.

Some of these children were able to be integrated into a normal world up to a certain point. They could not learn to speak. A specialist, some kind of speech guy and/or psychologist found that if language is not introduced at infancy or toddlerhood (I forget) the way the brain works, speech will not be possible. It never worked. There were cases that were recent and some from way back a long time ago.

What a sad situation. It does sound like the National Enquirer, but unfortunately, it is real.
