Oxana has spent most of her years since she was rescued living in a psychiatric hospital.
She became famous when she acted like a dog for reporters. you can see the video on youtube, just enter her name in the search box. In the video she is wearing an orange shirt and she is showing exactly how she acted before she learned to be human again.
Oxana has been able to form friendships but not deep relationships. She enjoys spending time with friends but seems unable to fall in love.
Scientists say that a person has a window of opportunity from birth to age five in which they can learn a first language. If that window is missed then the child will never be able to talk. Oxana has learned to talk because she did have a basic language skill when she was three years old before she moved in with the dogs.
