Dog_Saves_BabyIn Argentina a dog heard the cries of a newborn baby that had been abandoned. Having puppies of her own, the momma dog knew what to do. She managed to get the baby over to her bed where she took care of the baby like one of her own. A neighbor heard the cries of the baby and alerted authorities. The baby boy was then rescued by police who credit the dog for keeping him warm and alive. One officer said, “She took him like a puppy and preserved him, the doctors told us if she hadn’t done this, the baby would have died.” We are happy to report that the baby boy is in perfect health as well as momma and pups.
