An abandoned baby was rescued after a motorcycle driver stopped when a stray dog popped out along a deserted area near the municipality of Sibonga, Cebu in the Philippines.
According to the Facebook page of the Sibonga Police Station, Junrell Revilla, had been on his way to work on Christmas Eve when he noticed the stray dog following him and constantly barking. When he stopped, the dog seemed to be signaling for the man to follow him and subsequently led Revilla to a dumpsite.
There Revilla found an abandoned newborn baby wrapped in a towel; his umbilical cord still attached. The man brought the infant to the hospital for treatment.
“…led him to the dumpsite hence to the discovery of the new born baby boy wrapped with a brown towel with the placenta being placed on a black plastic,” the post stated.
An investigation, as of December 28, has not been able to find the mother of the infant. The baby remains in the custody of the Department of Social Welfare and Development.
According to the Smart Local, the dog wasn’t a stray after all. The canine hero, Blacky is a year-and-a-half old and is owned by Lyndon Olingay.
