Residents of a town in Saudi Arabia were absolutely flabbergasted last week when a dog walked into their town with something in its mouth.
Stray dogs are not that uncommon in the Middle East, or anywhere for that matter. However, what was uncommon was the human child that the dog was carrying in its mouth, LiveLeak reported.
It is unclear where the dog picked up the baby, which still had the umbilical cord attached, but what was clear was that this dog saved the child’s life.
“Those who posted the pictures said the dog carried the baby to the nearest house, whose dwellers rushed her to the hospital…the baby’s life was saved by the dog,” LiveLeak wrote.
The child had apparently been dumped into a waste bin by its mother shortly after birth. It is unclear why the child was dumped.

This is truly a miracle. The dog knew that this child should not have been on the streets, and acted quickly by getting it to the nearest house it could find.
Dogs, and other animals, have been known to stun people with their amazing actions that often end up saving human lives. These are very intelligent animals, capable of expressing love, or even sorrow.
