#1 – Oxana Malaya, the Dog Girl
Oxana was found in the family dog kennel in 1991 living a normal dog’s life.
She spent her childhood within a dog community in the back garden of the family house in Blagoveschenka, Ukraine, after being neglected by her alcoholic parents. They had forgotten her outside when she was three years old.
At that night, she tried to look for warmth and food, and finally, she found a hovel that sheltered a huge group of dogs eating fresh meat, and there she stayed. After 9 years without any human contact, she acquired all dogs’ behaviors; she was walking on all four, growled, barked, and bore her teeth when someone approached.
In 2010, she lived as a human being at the mentally handicapped home in Ukraine, where she was taking care of the clinic’s farm animals.
