It’s no secret that a dog’s maternal instinct is impressive. Just like humans, dogs love their pups very much. But what’s extraordinary is that mother dogs can foster and take care of other baby animals as well. They treat them as their own. From the moment a mother dog gives birth to her litter, she bonds with her puppies by feeding and licking their tiny little bodies. Animals are sometimes way much better mothers than human beings do.
Just recently a story of a dog, a Boston terrier, fostered and even produced her milk to care and feed for two orphan kittens.
A dog named China rescued an abandoned human baby in La Plata, Argentina. She has become a hero because of what she did. China was a mother herself as she just gave birth to a litter of six puppies. So when China heard a baby crying, her maternal instincts kicked in. She immediately investigated as to where the sound is coming from.
When she found the baby, China became a protective mother. She made sure that the baby is warm and watched over him. She made sure the baby was safe until her neighbors came.
Watch the incredible video below of China the hero dog.
Because of China’s strong maternal instincts, the baby boy was saved. He would have died without China’s protection.
Animals can’t call for help. That is why it is so encouraging to see when humans treat them with respect and care. But sometimes, the roles are reversed. Sometimes it’s the animals that take care of a human being.
We do hope that this story would help people become aware of just how important dogs are in our society. The care and concern China showed to the baby were not motivated by anything, but as a mother, she is concerned by the baby’s crying.
