A farm dog in Ghana has attained hero status after spending a night protecting an abandoned newborn human. Authorities say the dog, along with its two-week-old charge, was found under a bridge in Winkongo (which is near Bolgatanga, the Upper East Regional Capital of Ghana), near the farm where he lives – with the tiny baby snuggled against him.
A search party had been convened to look for the dog, not the baby, when the pooch's worried owner got concerned that her pet hadn't returned home in the evening.

Had another few hours passed, perhaps a day, I suspect the title would have read "Dog Consumes Abandoned Newborn."
You just can't pass up a hot meal like that. Fresh meat!
Humans should quit anthropomorphasizing.
And to put it another way using another critter. "Isn't it CUTE watching the cat PLAY with that mouse!"
Mousey doesn't FEEL that way. And Pussy is NOT playing!
I love you, dogs.
Madam Rosemary Azure, Director of Health for the Talensi-Nabdam District, shared the remarkable story with the Ghana News Agency at a ceremony for a different occasion entirely – the launch of two vaccines that will help prevent diarrhea and pneumonia – although it's not impossible that officials will find themselves presiding over a medal presentation to "Hairy Poppins" sometime soon.
