Pui was just a regular Thai dog walking the streets of his little village, when he uncovered a strange package. The dog was rummaging through a garbage bin near his family’s home in Thailand, when he stumbled upon a white plastic bag with something wrapped inside. Without hesitation, Pui brought the package back to his owners, who were stunned when they saw what was inside. Concealed inside Pui’s package was a tiny newborn baby who was miraculously still breathing.
The dog’s owner, Gumnerd Thongmak, immediately rushed the baby girl to the hospital where doctors revealed she was born prematurely at only 7 months. If it weren’t for Pui, a male Thai Bangkaew, the baby would not have survived. The tiny girl was only 4 pounds 8 ounces, and it is believed that a teenage girl who worked at a nearby factory had dropped her in the bin.
After his life-saving work, Pui was awarded a leather collar and a medal from the Tha Rua district Red Cross Chapter and his owners were given a $300 reward from the Bangkok Post.
The family says that Pui frequently goes for walks around his village but that he has never once brought anything home with him. They believe it was fate that brought the two together and now the Thongmak family wants to adopt the baby girl.
