Dog Brings Trash Bag Home – When Owners See What’s Inside, They Rush to Hospital


The dogs in this story are heroes. While they may not have been trying to save any lives initially, their efforts must be recognized as soon as possible. It is sad to live in a world where these types of events can take place but we are more than happy to offer credit where its due. Someone had carelessly decided to abandon a newborn baby and these dogs were having none of it!


Pui was making his rounds one day when he noticed a plastic bag that seemed strange to him. The Thai Bangkaew dog knew that he had to help out in any way that he could. The abandoned newborn was found in a Ayutthaya, Thailand garbage dump. We cannot believe that someone would carelessly throw away a baby like this. Why wouldn’t they place the child up for adoption?

There are a number of ways to handle these types of circumstances. Unfortunately, there are too many people who are willing to take the coward’s way out. The dog knew that they could not help the child themselves. However, they decided to take the bag to someone who could offer more assistance. This simple decision saved the life of an innocent child who could not fend for themselves.

Here's an update on this morning's story about a newborn baby girl saved by a dog: http://www.bangkokpost.com/learning/easier-stuff/353368/clever-dog-saves-newborn-girl

Once the dog arrived back home, they were sure to alert everyone in the house. No one answered at first but they soon realized that the dog’s barks were far more urgent than normal. Sudarat Thongmak was just a young girl at the time. A 12 year old should never have to see something like this. The child was able to keep her cool and she let her elder family members know what was taking place.

The baby still had an umbilical cord attached. Doctors offered the necessary treatment and they credit Pui for saving the baby’s life. If he had not come along when he did, who knows what might have happened? “Must be destiny that brought us together,” says Poomrat. As Sudarat’s mother, she believes that the baby was brought to them by forces that are more powerful than we can imagine.

In other words, it was fate! Pui’s efforts were recognized by the local Red Cross and he was given a medal for his courage. The Miracle of Life Foundation even offered a generous donation to Pui and the rest of the family’s dogs. If you loved this story as much as we did, don’t hesitate to share away!
