In late December, Junrell Fuentes Revilla was riding his motorcycle through the mountains near Cebu in 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 tell him something, so he stopped his motorcycle and approached the pup.
The dog led Revella into a garbage dump, and then walked towards the bundle of things squirming at 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 health.
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, Black 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 Black 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.
