Woman admits to breastfeeding a puppy to save its life

COLORADO– A photo of a woman breastfeeding a puppy is going around the internet after the woman posted the picture on her Facebook page to explain why she did it, according to KRDO.

The Colorado Springs TV station reported that the woman told them she did it to save the puppy’s life.

She said the puppy, named Tubbs, was the runt of the litter. His mother was killed and he wouldn’t eat from the bottle.

She told KRDO, “He just wasn’t taking it. I didn’t know what else to do. I was desperate and I just couldn’t bare sitting there, watching him die. Literally what clicked in my head was like put him on you, just pray to God he will take something and not die.”

The puppy is now doing well and drinking regular formula.

A veterinarian that KRDO spoke to said human breast milk isn’t best for puppies; in an emergency situation, she doesn’t think it’s a big deal.

      A Vet would have used an intubation needle and syringe, essentially a 20cc syringe attached to a blunt nosed curved tube that could be inserted into the pup's mouth and milk fed as the syringe plunger was depressed. Most serious god breeders have one of these devices.

      BTW she bared her breast but, couldn't bear to watch the pup starve. She flunked English.

    Compassion for a dog I could understand, but allowing it to suck on your breasts? That is completely and entirely repulsive. She's one that would probably allow another women's child to feed on her also. This lady is sick. This I'm sure she knows, otherwise she would have her face showing in her interviews.
