A dog has done what the boys’ human mother failed to do. A 2-year-old boy was seen breastfeeding from a dog at a mechanic’s workshop in Chile. Police rushed to the scene to find the malnourished boy had been neglected by his mother. The dog, named Reina, was pregnant at the time, kept the boy alive by giving him her milk.
When found, the young boy was naked and had lice. The boy’s mother was called and arrived at the hospital drunk. Since the child didn’t show any signs of physical harm, she was not arrested. The National Service for Minors has filed a complaint against the mother for neglect. A court hearing will determine who will care for the boy.
