For many years now, news about how a dog rescues and/or protects his/her human has been prevalent. Just a few days ago, news broke about how a persistent dog never left an abandoned baby girl until she’s safe and protected.

Jade and her timely arrival and protective instincts saved the baby. The doctor in the hospital where the baby was rushed confirmed that if not for the dog, the abandoned baby girl wouldn’t survived the cold weather.In honor of her heroic deed, hospital personnel named the baby girl, “Jade.”
