Meet Pui. This adorable mut spends his days on the streets of Thailand’s capital, Bangkok. One day, he was searching for something to eat at a landfill site when he came across a white plastic bag. Pui noticed immediately that there was something strange about this bag. Cautiously, he carried it in his mouth back to his family’s house where he barked until someone noticed.
A quiet whimpering was coming from the bag. Those who had gathered were becoming increasingly horrified until Pui’s owner opened the bag and revealed a newborn baby. The baby had clearly been born prematurely. His body was very fragile, so they immediately wrapped him in blankets before calling an ambulance.
The baby weighed less than five pounds, a result of horrible undernourishment. When he arrived at the hospital he was fed through an IV before the hospital staff began searching for the people responsible. But what’s most important is that after some much-needed love and care, the little baby survived! Pui was the city’s hero and everyone was so proud. A news team even came to film him and report on his miraculous rescue.
In a festive ceremony, Pui was given a collar with a small medal. His family also received a small reward of about $300. The money was desperately needed so they thankfully accepted. But Pui was clearly the center of attention. What a remarkable dog!
