Dog Guards Baby Abandoned By Drunk Mother

Posted: Updated:

MSNBC.COM - A Russian dog guarded a three-month-old overnight after the child's mother went drinking and forgot about her baby, a Russian news service reported on Friday.

Twenty-two year old Olga had gone into a park in the city of Saratov with her child and pet when she met friends, RT reported. 

She and her friends had some drinks and later Olga went home without the baby and dog, according to RT.

Upon waking up the next morning and realizing her mistake, Olga called her parents.

"She was in panic," Olga's mother reportedly said. "She was screaming that her son had been stolen."

Olga's father went to the park and discovered the pram holding the child, Vadim, and the dog next to it, RT reported.

"The baby was found wet, hungry and in tears, but what's more important, safe and sound," Olga's neighbors reportedly said. 

"The weather was quite warm, so the baby even managed not to catch cold. Thank God, the dog had been guarding the whole night and had been keeping away all strangers," they added.
