Woman Breastfeeds Orphan Rottweiler Puppy
Rottweiler puppy Gauchita was an orphan.
A woman from Buenos Aires, Cris took the tiny puppy and nursed it alongside with her own baby with breastmilk.
Gauchita is now fully grown healthy adult!
I’ve always found that Americans get really weird about breastfeeding, almost as if they think the world’s most natural source of infant nutrition is somehow unnatural. (Leave it up to the FDA and it will be banned, probably… or they’ll require breast milk to be pasteurized for “safety reasons.”)
When I lived in South America, women openly breastfed their babies in public without giving it a second thought. It’s not uncommon to see a South American woman breastfeeding an infant on an airplane, a bus, or even a park bench outside a corporate office building.
Nobody freaks out about it. There’s nothing weird about breastfeeding in public in most of the world. But breastfeeding a Rottweiler is certain to raise question marks in the minds of many people, so let’s break it down here.
Here’s the mother, Cris, feeding Gauchita:
First, to anyone who thinks cross-species breastfeeding is somehow “weird,” I ask you to open your refrigerator and tell me what species of milk you’re drinking. For nearly all humans, that’s bovine milk, which means most humans are drinking milk that was sourced from the teats of cows. How is that any less weird than a Rottweiler drinking human breast milk?
It’s also not uncommon at all for young women who have trouble breastfeeding to use goat milk for their infants. Goat milk is a nutritional powerhouse, and it’s far more closely aligned to human breast milk than bovine milk.
