About a week ago, a police officer from the Brazilian city of Novo Horizonte saw a neighbor’s dog named Julie rummaging in a garbage dump and pulled out something unexpected. At first the policeman thought that the dog had a dead kitten in his teeth. Looking more closely, he saw that it was a puppy, and quite alive.
The officer immediately contacted Marco Antonio Rodriguez, a local animal rescue specialist, and asked him for help.
The dog, who found the puppy, did not want to part with him, so the owners allowed her to look after the baby.
“She played the most important role in saving the puppy,” the animal protector told the story.
Unfortunately, the savior did not have milk, so the baby was taken to Lupi, a recently grown-up neighbor’s dog. She was able to replace the puppy mother. The adoptive mother watched the mongrel get full and stronger every day.
