A woman went to extreme measures to save a newborn dog by breastfeeding it back to health.

breastfeedpuppyWhen a litter of puppies was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado, their mother died.

One of the pups, the runt of the litter, refused to take milk or formula from a bottle.

So, in a panic, the dog’s foster mom did the only thing she could think to do – and, it worked.

The woman admits she feels weird about it.
