A dog rummaging in a garbage dump in Brazil is being credited with saving a newborn baby’s life.
The stray female dog found the newborn boy with his umbilical cord still attached, the blog Life With Dogs reported Wednesday.
Photos show the dog gently carrying the baby in its mouth away from the dump and to the nearest house in the city of Campinas, Brazil.
According to the blog, the residents of the house immediately took the baby to the nearest hospital.
Doctors said the baby boy is doing well. The dog, who is being called “an angel sent from the heavens,” left the baby unharmed, according to the report.
Authorities are searching for the boy’s mother, according to the blog.
This happened last year, I came across the grown up babies picture on Facebook and I reflected on the story.
