Dog Saves Newborn’s Life

A very special dog is the reason that a two week old baby is alive today.

A dog on a farm in Ghana didn’t come home one night. His worried owners had a search party put together to find their beloved pet. Rescuers tracked the hound through fields and woods and found the dog under a bridge, wrapping himself around a newborn (human) baby.

Needless to say, the farm dog has attained hero status after spending the night protecting the baby, letting the baby snuggle against him.

The Director of Health for the district says the baby is in realtively good shape. His umbilical cord had not been cut and had gotten infected, but he is otherwise okay.

Officials can’t say yet what led to the baby’s desertion by his mother, but speculate that the parents were teenagers. The investigation continues.
