Dog saves newborn baby thanks to keep barking and barking until strange biker follows him

The dog barked and barked, desperate for Revilla’s attention.

Junrell Fuentes Revilla was riding his motorcycle in the highlands near Cebu, Philippines, in late December when a dog began running towards him.

The dog growled and barked in an attempt to get Revilla’s attention. The motorcyclist sensed that the dog was attempting to communicate with him, so he came to a halt and approached the dog.

Revilla was brought by the dog into a dumpsite and approached a little writhing bundle on the ground. “To Revilla’s amazement, he discovered a newborn wrapped in a brown towel,” Gea Ybarita, a Hope for Strays team member, told The Dodo. “Because it’s at the top of the mountain, the spot where the infant was discovered is secluded.”

Revilla snatched the newborn and took it to the local police station, where the Department of Social Welfare intervened. The infant has located just in time and in good condition thanks to the dog’s fast thinking.

The dog led Revilla into a dumpsite and toward a little squirming bundle on the ground.

When the tale of the stray dog’s bravery was in the local press, volunteers from the Hope for Strays rescue hurried into the mountains in search of the helpful pooch. Instead, they came upon a man who claimed ownership of the dog, named Blacky.

“He showed us the way to his house, and to our astonishment, Blacky and three other dogs were there,” Ybarita added. “We’ve established that he is not a stray at all.”

Thanks to the dog’s quick thinking, the baby was found just in time and was still in good health. 

The rescue workers were relieved that Blacky had a loving home, but it was apparent the dog and his family still needed help. “[Blacky’s owner] stated, ‘No matter how hard life is, even though I’m poor, I feed all of my dogs and take care of them well,’” Ybarita said.

Blacky and his family have since received an outpouring of support from the community, including donations of food, pet supplies, and more. While Blacky may not know it, he’s changed the future for him, his family, and one very lucky baby girl.

The rescue workers were glad that Blacky had found a loving home, but it was clear that the dog and his family required further assistance. “‘No matter how hard life is, even if I’m poor, I feed all of my dogs and take care of them nicely,” Ybarita said of Blacky’s owner.

Since then, Blacky and his family have received an outpouring of community support, providing food, pet supplies, and other items. While Blacky may not realize it, he has altered the course of his, his family’s, and one very lucky baby girl’s destiny.
