The baby’s mother was 14-years-old and had abandoned the baby in a field. The dog had found him and carried him 50 yards to where her puppies were already snuggling.

According to CNN, “Dr. Egidio Melia, director of the Melchor Romero Hospital in La Plata, Argentina said police showed up at the hospital at 11:30 p.m. Wednesday with the baby, who doctors say was only a few hours old.”

The next morning, the baby’s mother was driven to the hospital where she confirmed that he was hers. She was immediately hospitalized and given a psychological evaluation. The baby has been transferred to a children’s hospital.

“The doctors told us if she hadn’t done this, he would have died. The dog is a hero to us.”
