Such an amazing story which only prove how under estimate animals are by many, and how much we need to learn from animals. They give love, help and all provided with great compassion, something totaly unknown by many so call themselves "Humans"
Thanks you dear Simone, great post!:)

That dog should be a part of the local government! He's a model for honesty and loyalty!

What a good dog, more mother instinct than the human that gave birth to that poor lil angel.

That dog recognized the defenselessness & need of a far weaker being. This Is A Wonderful Story, --Thankfully With A Great Outcome.

No mention has been made about the safety status of the poor dog.I hope the dog is ok and is not abused and murdered as they do in these uncivilised countries

Kye, did you not read the story? The searchers were looking for the DOG. They were worried about the DOG. Nobody was expecting to find the baby. So it's safe to assume the dog will be just fine.

WOW...this dog has more compassion than the person that left the baby. He was the baby's guardian angel. So glad they where both found. God Bless them both!!!!!!!!!

We gain far more that is priceless and transformational by caring for, learning from and living in harmony with animals than by what is achieved from harming them. Animals teach us to be better humans and help heal us when we're broken.

I think animals are the ears and eyes of God. People are so uncaring. Hope the person that did this will live a very short misable life.
