Read “The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog” by Perry. Summarize the story of Chapter 6, “The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog,” in 5–8 sentences. What lessons did Dr. Perry learn from Connor and Justin?

In the titular chapter of the book, Justin is the boy who was raised as a dog after his mother left. Justin had to live with his grandmother, who soon died and left him in the custody of her cognitively challenged partner. This person completely lacked the basic understanding of how to interact with children, and Justin was literally treated like a dog. During treatment, Justin demonstrated a significant improvement, and the social services even considered him eligible for foster care.

In another case of severe neglect, a boy named Connor was mistreated by his nanny, resulting in his abnormal development. Dr. Perry relied on compensating for the prior neglect, gradually involving Connor in social activities, enabling full recovery. The stories of Justing and Connot illustrate the colossal power of neglect as a highly damaging development factor. However, they also send a message of hope, showing how social work can help even in such severe cases.
