London – «I thank the Lord that the baby was alive, it could have been much worse: it could have been dead, I told my neighbors. Heaven sent Hel to save that baby! ‘ The words with which are full of emotion Terry Walsh tells Birmingham Live how crucial his dog was in saving that little creature’s life.
The man was walking his Husky dog Hel when his paws landed on some blankets abandoned under a bush in a park in Birmingham, UK. “Suddenly I heard this baby cry – said the 64-year-old -. I think it was Hel’s gentle nudge that woke the little one. ‘
The newborn was wrapped in a blanket and was probably only a few hours old when Walsh and Hel found him, West Midlands police said in a press release. Thanks to the alarm given by the man, the newborn was taken to the hospital where the health personnel found him to be in good health and was called George because he was found the day before the feast of St. George.
The police have released many photos of little George hoping this will help find the mother and understand what happened: “I’m trying to get in touch with George’s mother. You are my main concern right now, and we want to make sure you are okay. I don’t know the circumstances surrounding George’s birth, but I myself know that becoming a parent can be overwhelming, Inspector Neil Hunt said in a statement. We are ready to offer you all the help and support you may need. George is safe and well, and your health and well-being are our top priority, we assure you that you are not in trouble. ‘
And Walsh thanks his dog because he has a docile disposition: «Hel was wonderful. An older dog or another dog with a different temperament could have torn the blanket and the baby could have been treated like a rag doll. Not to mention what foxes or mice could have done. ‘
