Baby saved by a nursing dog!
I was surprised to hear that an abandoned baby (nurses have named her Angel) was saved by a female nursing dog, in a place called Nairoby in Kenya.
Angel is a newborn baby who was abandoned in a forrest, wrapped in a plastic bag.
Apparantly the dog carried the baby in the plastic bag, accross a busy road, through a barbed wire fence and to a shed where she had her puppies.
Angel is doing fine now in hospital, responding to antibiotics and other treatments.
I think this is an amazing story. It goes to show you that even some dogs care more about a human life than some of our people and court systems.
Saint Francis of Assisi would be proud!
