Stray dogs can be found absolutely everywhere in Bangkok. There are so many of them that the locals even chose the name “yard terrier” for them. But no one even imagined that an ordinary dog could be so smart.
His name is Pugh. As usual, he wandered aimlessly through the streets. Along the way, he came across an ordinary dump and, of course, headed there. But suddenly he heard a noise coming from a nearby ᴛʀᴀsʜ can. Then his attention was attracted by strange and ᴜɴᴜsᴜᴀʟ sounds. Push ᴄʟɪᴍʙᴇᴅ ᴜᴘ there and saw the newborn baby. Yes, it’s a newborn baby ʟʏɪɴɢ in the ᴅᴜᴍᴘ. They wrapped a towel and left the ᴘᴏᴏʀ child there.
He picked up the heavy bundle with his teeth and headed towards the crowded streets. When he met the first person, he put the bundle in front of his feet and began to poke his nose and bark.
The man did not pay attention, thinking that it was some kind of garbage. But when he heard a squeak, he opened it and saw a baby in it! There, as if asking “please help him,” the dog showed the humans the baby and left him to their care.
The kid was crying, it became clear immediately. He ᴛᴜʀɴᴇᴅ ʙʟᴜᴇ all over and could ʙᴀʀᴇʟʏ breathe. A woman came up and hugged the baby. Pugh sat next to him and looked at the woman expectantly as if guarding his find. Of course, the resident of the city immediately called the police and an ambulance. Doctors took the baby to intensive care.
Doctors say that if it were not for the brave Pugh, who stubbornly ᴅʀᴀɢɢᴇᴅ the bundle with the child to people for several kilometers, the baby would definitely not have survived. Local reᴘᴏʀᴛᴇʀs learned about the ɪɴᴄɪᴅᴇɴᴛ, and Pugh became a real city hero.
Thank God, the child survived. According to doctors, without the brave Pugh, who dragged this knot for several kilometers, the child would not have survived.
In November 2021, social media around the globe were awash in photographs of a dog seemingly carrying a newborn child in its mouth, with accompanying text proclaiming that the canine had found the child aʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴇᴅ on the street and had carried it to safety: Verifying the veracity of these images has proved difficult, as the accompanying text typically makes no mention of details such as time and place. (Some iterations of the message do mention location but attribute the story to multiple, widely varying parts of the world.) Similar reports regarding dog rescues of aʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴇᴅ children have certainly appeared in the news media over the years (sometimes in tandem by photographs that have no actual connection to the story being reported), but none of them appears related to this iteration.
