puiA dog in Bangkok, Thailand is a hero after saving the life of an abandoned newborn baby Monday morning.

The dog named Pui arrived home to his owner Gumnerd Thongmak’s home with a white plastic bag from a nearby dump site and started barking loudly. Thongmak’s niece came to see why Pui was barking and opened the bag to find a baby with its umbilical cord still attached. The 12-year-old girl ran to get her mother and they rushed the baby to a nearby hospital.

The baby girl is now in stable condition after being given oxygen and treatment. She is believed to have been born prematurely. Officials are currently trying to find the baby’s mother. Pui has received a special leather collar with a medal for his life-saving rescue of the baby.
