5.6.15 - Stray Dog Saves Baby Thrown in Trash from Being Eaten Alive1


A street dog in Thailand became a hero when her motherly instincts kicked in and she saved the life of an abandoned newborn baby who was about to become dinner for two other street dogs.

The incident occurred in the Muang district of the Chonburi providence.  Mr. Noi Pongsakorn was on his way to buy dinner when saw two dogs fighting over and snapping at what appeared to be a doll.

Out of nowhere came Nom Sod (meaning fresh milk), a female stray dog he often fed.  She scooped up the bundle with her teeth and ran off, but not before growling at the other dogs and letting them know she meant business.

“At the time I didn’t think it was a baby and thought it was a doll, until I heard it crying and walked closer to Nom Sod,” Pongsakorn explained.

Nom Sod was in full protective mode, and it wasn’t until Pongsakorn brandished a stick in her direction that she gently put the baby down.

Police and paramedics were called.  The tiny baby girl, who appeared to have been born prematurely, was reportedly pale green and covered in bite and scratch marks.

On Monday, Police Colonel Chuthares Yingyongdamrongsakul praised Nom Sod for her heroic actions.  He bought her a collar and brought her some grilled chicken as a reward.

Witnesses reported that a motorcycle had been parked near the garbage bin about 30 minutes before the dog scuffle occurred.  Security footage of the area showed a woman whom police believe is the baby’s mother.

It is unknown how the 4.5-pound baby is doing, but Nom Sod is likely going to be treated like a queen by all the neighbors who know her.  Perhaps one of them will give her a home!

Pongsakorn gives Nom Sod a well-deserved treat.

  1. I’m glad that Colonel Yingyongdamrongsakul praised Nom Sod for her heroic actions and gave her a reward. He sounds like a good person.

  2. Dogs are better than people…
    Never let you down and love you until the last minute !
    The mother should be behind bar !
    Let her child die in this conditions are just inhumane !!!

  3. Has it occurred to anyone that perhaps the poor hungry street dog, Nom Sod, wanted that “meal” for herself, which is why she grabbed the poor baby and ran?

    Obviously there is a problem there in that particular location where dogs are not cared for and left to fend for themselves by whatever means they can. The human population is to be blamed for not only that helpless, abandoned baby but the abandoned, hungry dogs as well.

    • Nom Sod isn’t a street dog. She has an owner. They just let her wonder as she want, just like some people do with cats. I had several dogs in my past. I never cage them.

    • Yeah, maybe its eat them before they eat you. I am surprised they even have street dogs since they like eating them.

      • You are thinking about China, Laos and Vietnam. Dogs are treated very well in Thailand, and they are not on the menu.

        • Not necessarily. Perhaps in the Buddhist sections of Thailand, but you have a portion of Thailand that is Muslim.

  4. dogs are gods ……in dogs forms… buddist belive we say that if we treat dogs well …he will show us the right way way when we die…god bless him…respect n salute for this new mummy!!!..
