Way, a stray dog from Argentina, showed what it is to be a hero. When she came across an abandoned one-month-old girl in an alley one night, her instincts kicked in, and she did what any mother would do.
The child was abandoned by her mother and left the baby all alone to die in the freezing winter temperatures. Authorities did not know how long the baby was left in the cold but were glad that Way found her when she did.
Way had just delivered a litter of puppies and her maternal instincts to protect her young were in full effect on that fateful night. She and her puppies surrounded the child and kept her warm.
When local resident Alejandra Griffa heard the baby’s cries the following morning, she was extremely concerned. She investigated to see if she could help.
Alejandra could not believe what she saw. There was a small baby in the middle of the alley, being snuggled between Way and her puppies! Alejandra immediately picked up the baby and rushed to a nearby hospital.
Rescuers said if it wasn’t for Way and her puppies, the baby would have frozen to death. Way became an instant hero to the community, and the local news crew covered her incredible story.
The newborn child’s mother was found and subsequently detained by authorities. Way is truly a hero!
