Dog Refuses To Stop Barking Until Biker Follows Him To Abandoned Baby

 In late December, Junrell Fuentes Revilla was riding his motorcycle through the mountains near Cebu within the Philippines when a dog started running after him. 

The dog barked and barked, desperate for Revilla’s attention. The biker could sense that the dog was trying to inform him something, so he stopped his motorcycle and approached the pup.

The dog led Revilla into a dumpsite and toward a touch squirming bundle on the bottom . “To Revilla’s surprise, he found a baby wrapped during a brown towel,” Gea Ybarita, a staffer at Hope for Strays, told The Dodo. “The location where the baby was found is isolated since it's on the highest of the mountain.”

Revilla scooped up the newborn and rushed the baby to the closest police headquarters , where the Department of welfare stepped in. because of the dog’s quick thinking, the baby was found just in time and was still in healthiness . 

When the story of the stray dog’s heroism spread to the local news, volunteers with the rescue Hope for Strays rushed into the mountains hoping to seek out the helpful pup. Instead, they found a person who claimed the dog, named Blacky, belonged to him.

“He showed us the thanks to his home and to our surprise, Blacky was there with three other dogs,” Ybarita said. “We've confirmed he's not a stray in the least .”

The rescue workers were relieved that Blacky had a loving home, but it had been apparent the dog and his family still needed help. “[Blacky’s owner] stated, ‘No matter how hard life is, albeit I'm poor, I feed all of my dogs and lookout 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 might not realize it , he's changed the longer term for him, his family and one very lucky daughter .
