Animal News #2_2012: Almost Raised by a Dog

A farm dog in Ghana spent a night protecting an abandoned two-week old baby. A human baby. The two were found under a bridge in Winkongo (which is near Bolgatanga, the Upper East Regional Capital of Ghana), near the farm where he lives – with the tiny baby snuggled against him.

The baby boy is in relatively good condition. His umbilical cord had not been cut, and had gotten infected, but the little one was otherwise unharmed; he’s had all his vaccinations, and is currently in the custody of a local health directorate until new, non-bridge arrangements can be made for him.
