It's an extraordinary story. A little girl, neglected, rejected, abandoned by her parents. For comfort, she snuggles up in the farmyard kennels with the dogs. That becomes her home, and they become her family for the next six years. They protect her, feed her, maybe even love her. And in return, she begins to act like them. It's a remarkable case. One that startled the world of science, especially when the doctors tried to teach her to be a normal child. In fact, the story you're about to see re-ignites the whole nature versus nurture debate. And it could make you think twice about the way we bring up our kids.
