article imageDog found a baby in a plastic bag, brought it home to its master

A male Thai Bangkaew who regularly wanders around his community found a white plastic bag at a roadside dump in Tha Rua district and took it home to his master, Gumnerd Thongmak. His niece heard it barking outside and found the dog with a plastic bag.
The dog named Pui was then honored for rescuing a newborn who had been wrapped in a plastic bag and thrown into a garbage dump. "It′s lucky that Little Pui found the baby. It was a surprise to us, since Little Pui never brought anything home, only barking at strangers when he’s out and about," Pui's other owner, Poomrat Thongmak, told Thailand's Khaosod newspaper. "Must be destiny that brought us together."
Police Lieutenant General Jitkasaem Sonkom told Khaosod that investigators are currently working on finding the baby's biological mother, who they think is a teenage girl who works at a nearby factory. Thongmak said she wants to adopt the child.
The newborn, who doctors say was born prematurely, weighed only 4 pounds. She was transferred to a nearby hospital, where she is being cared for.
Bangkok Post said Pui was then given a leather collar and a medal from Tha Rua district Red Cross Chapter as a token of appreciation for his clever rescue. The Miracle of Life Foundation chief volunteer also gave Gumnerd 10,000 baht as a reward for Pui's actions.
