Oxana Malaya, the Ukranian Dog Girl. Left to live in a kennel by her abusive and neglectful parents from the ages of 3 to 8, Oxana Malaya grew up with no other company than the dogs she shared the kennel with. When she was found in 1991, she was unable to speak, choosing only to bark, and ran around on all fours. Now in her 20s she has found some peace caring for cows that reside on a farm near the mental institution where she lives.

Oxana Malaya, b. 1983, was neglected by her alcoholic parents at an early age, & lived surrounded by dogs. When Oxana was found by authorities, she was 7, but she could not talk, lacked many basic skills, & behaved like a dog. Oxana was sent to a foster home & underwent years of therapy & education. Upon adulthood, Oxana has been taught to subdue her dog-like behavior, learned to speak fluently, works a farm, & has a boyfriend.
