Farm Dog Protects Abandoned Baby

Posted on: June 10, 2012

I read this article a few days ago and I thought it worth mentioning.

The article talks about this dog in Ghana that spent the night protecting an abandoned newborn baby. Authorities said that the dog and the baby were found under a bridge in Winkongo (it’s near Bolgatanga, the Upper East Regional Capital of Ghana), near the farm where the dog lives with the tiny baby snuggled against him. Aw!

Originally a search party was sent to find the dog, not the baby. The dog’s owner was worried when her pet didn’t come home that night. When they found the dog they were surprised to find him with the baby.

As for the baby, we learn that he’s at least two week’s old. Though his umbilical cord had not been cut and had gotten infected, the little guy is fine and is unharmed. He got all his vaccinations and is currently in the custody of a local health directorate until new, non-bridge arrangements can be made for him.

Okay, this is another example of a terrible parent. The baby’s mother just threw her child away like it was trash. And I thought the mom who left her baby on the roof on her car was bad.

The dog who protected that baby deserves a metal and a steak. Dogs are really man’s best friend and more capable of human compassionate that this baby’s god awful mother.
