A man who was out riding his bike came across the stray dog and noticed it was carrying something in its mouth. At first, the man was scared that the dog meant harm to the baby and rushed towards them to save it. However, the dog willingly handed over the newborn, whose umbilical cord was still attached. Others gathered around the scene and were surprised by the dog’s reaction, in that the dog never seemed to try to stop them from helping.
This all took place close to a hospital, so the newborn was rushed to the emergency room. The doctors were amazed to find the baby unharmed, who has been doing well under their care since then. Oman authorities have been investigating what happened, but they believe it’s possible the baby’s mother left the child somewhere and the dog found it. This stray’s amazing instincts and kindness saved this baby’s life.
