The facts are still sketchy in a story about a baby girl abandoned by her mother just hours after she was born. Published reports have claimed that the baby was found alone by a dog, called China, picked-up, and taken to safety to sleep with her puppies.
Other reports indicate that the mother abandoned the child with the dog in the first place. Regardless, what appears to be certain is that the newborn was found safe in the care of the dog nestled next to the dog’s puppies.
This all took place near La Plata, Argentina, which is about 40 miles south of Buenos Aires. The child was abandoned during winter weather in Argentina and was at some risk due to the cold, but not freezing conditions.
One published report says that police have identified and located the little girl’s mother, a 14 year old girl.
