There’s a common belief that dogs are the ultimate companions of humans, and their loyalty is unmatched. They have shown time and time again that they can take care of their human friends, especially when it comes to protecting defenseless beings like newborns. However, one Rottweiler’s heroic act takes this loyalty to a whole new level. This brave dog saved the life of a baby who was abandoned by his mother after giving birth.
The story goes that Gustavo M., a mechanic, arrived at his workshop located in Canelones, Uruguay, which was behind his son’s house. When he entered the area, he was surprised to find that his Rottweiler didn’t come out to greet him as usual. Upon closer inspection, he found the dog curled up, keeping warm a baby that had been left alone. The dog stayed with the baby throughout the night, ensuring that the baby remained safe and warm. This selfless act by the Rottweiler demonstrates their infinite heroism and shows us that dogs are indeed man’s best friend.
Gustavo noticed that the dog was displaying signs of nervousness, which worried him. His attempt to feed the dog failed as the latter did not even show any interest in the food provided. The dog continued pacing back and forth from the back of the workshop, indicating that something was amiss. Initially, Gustavo thought nothing of it, but after a while, he heard what appeared to be cries of a baby. He speculated that it might be a puppy at first. However, the dog insisted on guiding him to a hiding spot, and to Gustavo’s shock, he stumbled upon a baby lying face down and frozen due to the cold weather.
With concern and kindness, the man wrapped the newborn in a warm blanket and rushed him to the hospital. Medical professionals confirmed that the baby was suffering from hypothermia. The man reported to the Canelones Police that when he went to his workshop early in the morning, he noticed his dog acting agitated. Upon investigating, he discovered the abandoned infant. Remarkably, the loyal dog had been caring for the helpless newborn, keeping him warm for over 16 hours.
On December 14, a peculiar incident occurred where a dog became a surrogate mother to a newborn baby. The baby’s mother was later discovered to be Gustavo’s daughter-in-law, a 22-year-old girl who had a psychiatric disorder and kept her pregnancy a secret from her family. After giving birth in a workshop shed, she became confused and left her baby behind when she went to the hospital due to a hemorrhage. Doctors confirmed that she had been in labor for over 15 hours, but the woman insisted that she had a miscarriage. She is currently receiving treatment at a sanatorium. Luckily, the dog was there to provide maternal care for the newborn.
It is truly remarkable how dogs continue to teach us valuable lessons about their loyalty and devotion. This heartwarming story could have had a tragic ending, but thanks to the heroism of a Rottweiler, it ended in pure triumph. The owners of this brave dog describe it as having an impeccable character, being obedient, docile, and very devoted. It’s disheartening that despite the countless stories of dogs saving human lives, some still consider them as dangerous. Though the reality is, some humans can be much worse. Let’s share this piece of news with our friends and appreciate the wonderful and selfless acts of man’s best friend.
