Puppy love is something that any person has surely experienced. Having feelings for someone at a very young age is one of the signs that an individual is on the way to adulthood. However, in the case of this 8-month-old baby who was allegedly forced by her own family to marry a tiny puppy, that’s pretty weird.

In order to save them from potential bad luck in the future, they decided to wed the baby girl to the animal in order to pass the ill fortune to the pup.
