Dog in Thailand saves baby left at dump site
Pui, a Thai Bankaew, found a plastic bag in a trash bin, carried it with his mouth back to his owner’s house, dropped it on the ground and barked.
The owner’s 12-year-old niece opened the bag and found the baby inside, according to the Bangkok Post.
Pui, who authorities said regularly wanders around town, found the bag at dump site in tambon Sala Loi in Tha Rua district and toted it back to the home of his master, Gumnerd Thongmak. After his 12-year-old niece, Sudarat, opened the bag, the baby was transported to nearby Phranakhon Sri Ayutthaya Hospital.
Pui was awarded a leather collar and a medal from the Tha Rua district Red Cross chapter for his heroic actions, and his master received 10,000 baht reward from The Miracle of Life Foundation.
