Way is a stray dog from Buenos Aires, Argentina, that has a big heart and a beautiful disposition. She had just given birth to a litter of pups and was doing all she could to care for them when she came across another lady who needed help.
While Way had always managed to scrape by on the streets, she suddenly had a whole lot more mouths to feed, so she scoured the area for whatever food she could get her hands on. She needed to get moving quickly since it was winter in Argentina.
Way happened to come upon a newborn human child that had been abandoned by its mother in an alley at that point. It was the mother dog’s instincts that triggered, and she recognized that the newborn needed to be kept warm. Because of this, Way returned to her pups and brought them one at a time to the newborn under her care. She then wrapped her body around the rest of the group as firmly as she possibly could.
Alejandria Griffin, a neighborhood homeowner, was awakened the following morning by the sounds of the newborn’s crying. Her surprise when she went outdoors to look for the source of the noise was utterly unexpected. A stray dog had taken in an abandoned youngster and raised her as her own. She contacted the police immediately and asked aid.
The child, who has been given the name Santino, was sent to the hospital’s emergency department in order to get immediate medical attention. Alejandria informed the doctors about the stray, and they think that the newborn would have perished if it hadn’t been for the dog’s heroic actions on their behalf. The people hailed Way as a hero for his actions.
In spite of all that had occurred, Santino was in unexpectedly excellent health, which could be attributed in large part to Way’s extraordinary care.
Police were ultimately able to track down the baby’s mother, a 33-year-old Buenos Aires woman who was the mother of eight other children. She was arrested and incarcerated after being accused of leaving her newborn child.
Way and her babies were taken in by a neighboring shelter, where they would be cared for until they could find permanent homes for themselves and their children. What a terrific story from beginning to end!
