Dog Finds Abandoned Newborn Baby in Park

English grandfather, Roger Wilday, was walking his German Shepard, Jade, in a park last week, when his dog suddenly ran over to a cluster of bushes and refused to come when Wilday called him. Wilday finally went over to Jade to find out what she was so adamant about showing him. As he walked over he noticed a wiggling bundle and at first thought someone had abandoned a litter of kittens, but then he saw two little flailing arms and the mysterious bundle began to cry.

Wilday immediately contacted the police who instructed him to pick-up the baby and wait for their arrival. Seven police cars and an ambulance arrived at the scene and the 6-pound babe was whisked away to Heartlands Hospital for an examination.

The hospital staff named the baby Jade, after the hero dog that saved her. Indeed, they said, if she had been left alone for even a few more hours she could have died. Rogerís wife,†Catherine added, “I’m really pleased that the nurses named the baby after Jade, it makes me so proud of her.”

Jade (the baby) is now alert, happy and content according to hospital staff. †Meanwhile, Birmingham police are looking for the mother.



Nine-year-old Jade (the canine) has a special affinity for children says Wilday, so he is not surprised his dog would try to alert him to a child in danger. †”She’s very keen on our grandchildren. Whenever she hears their names she whimpers. She just loves kids.”

Wilday and his wife Catherine hope they will be allowed to visit the baby, who was determined to be only a few days old at the time she was found in the park. †Catherine added,†”Itís not a typical thing to find a baby, but thatís just the kind of thing that would happen to Roger. Heís that type of person. He cares about everyone.Ē

Would like to see an update on this; what happened to the baby and did they find the mother? She must have been in a terribly desperate state to do something like this.

i want to use this opportunity to thank my great doctor who really made my life a pleasurable one today. This great man Dr Saibaba who brought my husband back to me, i had 2 lovely kids for my husband, about 3 years ago i and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me for one lady. i felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. i tried to be strong just for the kids but i could not control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows an Ad pains because i was really in love with my husband. Every day and night i think of him and always wish he would come back to me, until one day i met a good friend of mine that was also in a situation like me but her problem was her ex-boyfriend who she had an unwanted pregnancy for and he refused to take responsibility and dumped her. she told me that mine was a small case and that i shouldn't worry about it at all so i asked her what was the solution to my problems and she gave me this great man phone number and his email address. i was doubting if this man was the solution, so contacted this great man and he told me what to do and i deed them all, he told me to wait for just two day and that my husband will come crawling on his kneels just for forgiveness so i faithfully deed what this great man asked me to do and for sure after two days i heard a knock on the door, in a great surprise i saw him on his kneels and i was speechless, when he saw me, a

Well done, a life saved by the canine Jade and his owner. I hope "Baby Jade" will find a loving family.

I don't see how anyone can abandon a tiny helpless baby no matter what problems they have in their life. There are always alternatives.

I love happy endings! The only question is: where's the baby's mother?

Some lucky couple will have a baby to love. This story could easily have had a tragic ending if Jade the dog had not found the baby. We should have some compassion for the desperate mother in a desperate situation who felt such a wrong action was the best choice in her situation.

Who at this day and date abandons a baby under the bushes in a park ??????? This is a small fragile baby ......and imagine all those couples trying years and years for a baby ........STUPID woman , why get pregnant at the first place many unwanted babies in this world .!
This child will always carry the stigma of being abandoned in her heart growing up .

As for the dog well done ...
