A malnourished two-year-old boy is believed to have been kept alive by a dog who breastfed him.
The boy was discovered in a mechanic’s workshop in Arica, Chile, on Thursday.
Local media reports he was seen drinking the milk of a pregnant dog.
The child was taken to hospital and released one day later. He is now under the care of child welfare authorities.
The boy’s parents have not been arrested and a family court hearing will determine the child’s outcome later this month.
Locals have hailed the dog, Reina, as a hero.
