Abandoned Baby Saved By Dog

This is an unbelievable story out of Argentina about a dog that saved the life of a baby . The 14 year old mother abandoned her baby in a field where a neighbor eventually heard the cries from behind his house.

The man went outside and found the infant lying beside the dog and its six newborn puppies, said Daniel Salcedo, chief of police of the Province of Buenos Aires.

This amazing dog, who was nursing her own puppies, left them to go get the baby and bring it back to be with her.

The dog had apparently carried the baby 50 meters from where his mother had abandoned him to where the puppies were huddled, police said.

"She took it like a puppy and rescued it," Salcedo said. "The doctors told us if she hadn't done this, he would have died. The dog is a hero to us."

This dog should be a hero to everyone. I hope that in return for this act of heroism she and the puppies will receive the home they deserve.
