« on: June 03, 2013, 06:30:10 PM »
A newborn baby girl dumped in a litter bin was rescued by a dog early morning.

A two-year-old Thai bangkaew dog named "Pui" reportedly carried the bag with its mouth and barked continuously to alert its owner in Tha Rua district of Ayutthaya province.

The newborn baby girl was found with an uncut umbilical cord and her health was worrisome, showing signs of weakness, with her body becoming green.

The dog's owner rushed the newborn baby to a hospital. Doctors found the seven-and-a-half-month baby girl had been delivered prematurely with her body weight at 2,200 grammes.

The baby's health condition was listed as critical.

Local authorities are seeking the newborn's mother for questioning. (MCOT online news)

'Little Pui' The Dog Honored For Saving A Baby


The Bangkaew dog which found an abandoned baby and brought the baby to its owner is honored with medals and certificate proclaiming its ′courage′.

Ms. Poomrat Tongmark, a resident of Ayutthaya province, was shocked to discover a newborn baby inside a plastic bag brought to her by her dog ′Little Pui′. She immediately alerted the authorities and the rescue workers arrived to take the baby to Tahrua hospital for medical attention.

Initial investigations reveal the abandoned baby to be female, weighing 2,200 grams, with no disability . However, the baby was in poor condition and was probably prematurely born. The baby was transferred to Nakonsriayutthaya hospital and is now under strict care by the doctors.

Pol.Lieut.Gen. Jitkasaem Sonkom, commander of Tahrua police station, Ayutthaya, revealed that investigative officers are working on gathering information on the mother of the baby and have searched many residences in the area, but could not find a suspect. It is believed that the mother is a teenage girl who works at a factory in a different area.

Ms.Poomrat, owner of ′Little Pui′ the Dog, said that her 2-year old Bangkaew dog is good family pet and likes to run around the area from the entrance of the soi to the house.

"It′s lucky that Little Pui found the baby. It was a surprise to us, since Little Pui never brought anything home, only barking at strangers when he’s out and about. Must be destiny that brought us together,” Ms.Poomrat said.

Ms.Poomrat added that she wanted to adopt the baby since the baby was literally delivered at her doorstep, and because she only had one child. She has already informed the district office of her decision.

Sudarat, Ms. Poomrat′s 12 year old daughter, said that she was surprised by the episode, and felt pity for the baby and very saddened that someone left the baby to die. She added that she wants this baby as her sister and would take good care of her.

Meanwhile, the district office has issued a medal and a collar for ′Little Pui′ and presented its owner with a certificate praising its ′well-raised′ and ′courageous′ manner.

5 families want to adopt rescued baby

AYUTTHAYA – The Red Cross office in Tha Rua district has been approached by five families wanting to adopt the premature baby found by a dog on Monday.

Sasithorn Pinnikorn, the office chief, said among the families who contacted the office is an American married to a Thai woman.

The five families, who include dog owners, had informed the office on Monday of their wish to take care of the abandoned infant, she said.

She refused to reveal their names.

The office will not decide on the child's future until the baby, believed to have been born about six weeks premature, is healthy.

In the meantime, she is being cared for in an incubator at Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya hospital in Muang district, after being transferred from Tha Rua hospital.

Somsong Phunchareonworakul, president of the Ayutthaya Provincial Administration Organisation, said after visiting the girl that her condition is improving, but she still needs close care by nurses and doctors.

Pui, a two-year-old Thai Bangkaew dog, is reported to have found the baby in a plastic bag in a roadside dump in Tha Rua. He carried the plastic bag containing the girl to his owner's house, the Thongmak family, and then barked loudly to get their attention.

Sudarat, the family's 12-year-old daughter, was the first to respond and discovered the baby when she opened the bag.

Tha Rua police have still not found or identified the mother of the abandoned baby girl.

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.
