Child-Saving Dog: Miracle or Clickbait?
Dogs have always been man’s best friend. They’ve proven themselves time and again and often exhibit humanlike expressions of compassion, loyalty and love – all of which are exemplified by the dog featured in the miraculous story below.
A report from a Saudi Arabian newspaper Sada released this week released these heart-wrenching photographs of a dog carrying a newborn baby gently in his mouth with the baby’s umbilical cord still attached. The graphic photos were accompanied with a brief story reporting that it was unclear whether the incident had taken place in Saudi Arabia or another country in the Middle East, but one thing was for certain – the dog had definitely saved the baby’s life.
The stunning story and the accompanying photos quickly went viral on Facebook.
“Those who posted the pictures said the dog carried the baby to the nearest house, whose occupants rushed her to the hospital…the baby’s life was saved by the dog,” the paper wrote.
But has the story been verified?
A man’s best friend forever.
