Woman Saves Orphaned Puppy By BREASTFEEDING Him Just As He's Hours From Death!

puppy breastfeeding from human saves life

A boob's a boob when it comes to a dog, we guess! Especially when it's unlikely to survive otherwise!

A Labrador puppy refused to drink any milk of formula from a bottle — and as the runt of the litter, it wasn't going to survive very long if it didn't eat something after the whole group of pups' mother died.

So, a Colorado woman took the matters into her own hands, and also one of her boobs! She breastfed the dog herself, saving its tiny little life!

Having a 15-month-old baby at home, it did seem a little weird to her, but that didn't stop her:

"I thought 'just put him on you and pray to God that he'll take something and not die". I didn't know what else to do. I was desperate and I just couldn't bear sitting there watching him die. I've seen the results. That dog is alive because I took the initiative."

It's great that the dog survived, but it's not all happy-go-lucky: it's actually dangerous to do that. One vet had this to say about the process:

"There are things that can be passed from puppies to babies. In an emergency situation, I don't think it's a big deal, but for them to grow appropriately, I think it would be important for them to get on a canine formula."

Apparently human breast milk is not the most nutritional food for puppies, and wouldn't be good to keep a dog on it as they grow!

Honestly, we think that's a risk we're glad she took to help the little pup out! It's not like she'll breastfeed him forever — just to keep it alive long enough to eat the right things!

Watch what she has to say (below)! (P.S. Her identity has not been disclosed due to the fact that she doesn't want to get backlash.)

    This is the cutest thing ever! There is nothing healthier and more nutritive than a woman's milk (this doctor is full of shit). Besides, I have read studies stating that when children suffer from severe flus (and actually vomit anything that they are being given), mother's milk is the only thing that will bring them back their health, to a steady health before eating and drinking again.

    I don't see anything wrong with she was helping another living creature. I guess she could have just kept it to herself and it would not have caused her any trouble that way.
