What a good boy! 

According to a report by FOX News, an abandoned baby girl was found alive after a stray dog was spotted carrying her in the streets of Tripoli City, Lebanon. 

A passerby saw the dog holding the bag in its mouth when they heard cries from inside. The infant, who was believed to be only a few hours old, was immediately taken to the local hospital before relocating to another care facility. 

The baby had bruises and abrasions on her face and body and was in a “serious, but stable state.” The authorities are currently investigating the case to determine the reason, the suspect, and the exact location where she was abandoned. 

Journalist Ghassan Rifi said that the area where the baby was found is “very dangerous at night” since it is packed with stray dogs, which the local government had tried to get rid of by poison. 

“Usually, when someone wants to give up their kids, they place them in front of an orphanage or a police station,” he said. 

“However, this baby was dumped in an area that is considered very dangerous at night, as a lot of stray dogs can be found. The municipality had previously tried to poison these dogs but animal welfare organizations refused and called for their protection,” he added.

Local media reported that the little girl will be up for adoption when she gets out of the hospital. 

“If no one offers to adopt her, she will be placed in an orphanage after the public prosecutor is informed,” the report said.
