A police officer saw a neighbor’s dog digging through the trash, so he went to check it out–what the lovely dog had found was astounding…
A police officer in Novo Horizonte, Brazil noticed his neighbor’s dog Julie rummaging through the trash. Finding her actions unusual, the police officer went in for a closer look. The canine had dug out something that totally shocked the police officer. At first, he thought it was a dead cat, but on closer inspection, he found it to be a little pup, and the pup was still alive, but barely breathing.
The officer immediately contacted Marco Antonio Rodrigues, a local animal rescuer, and asked for his help–but when he arrived, Julie, the dog who had rescued the pup was in no mood to leave the scene.
They let her watch, after all she had all the right to. “She played the most important role by saving the puppy,” Rodrigues wrote on their Facebook page about the heroic and caring deed of the dog Julie.
Julie surely would have loved to contribute more but she was not producing milk, so they had to find another female dog to nurse the weak and starving baby dog. Fortunately for the little one, they did. They found a lactating mom Lupi who is feeding the pooch and taking on the role of the foster parent.
“One dog found the puppy in the trash and another is being his mom,” Rodrigues wrote. “What a beautiful thing!”
The pup was named Chaplin, and what with all the love and care, the little pup will be ready for adoption soon. One fortunate little pup.
