Someone decided to abandon their 2 weeks-old baby girl in the middle of the woods near the Talensi-Nabdam District.What happened next is more than miraculous.
A dog that escaped from his farm was able to find the baby girl. Instead of “eating” her or simply leaver her the dog decided to snuggle with the crying baby. The dog kept her warm and protected throughout the night. On the next day the dog’s owner had organized a search party looking for his missing dog. Luckily the was able to find his dog and the baby which came as a shock to him. The baby was immediately rushed to a hospital and later taken care of child services.
