A newborn baby abandoned in a field survived a bitterly cold night thanks to the warmth of a stray dog and her four puppies.

The tiny girl was left naked in a field near Saristal village in Chhattisgarh state, in northern India, according to police and villagers. When farmers set off to work in the fields, they were startled to stumble across the child with her umbilical cord still attached, nestled alongside the dog. Temperatures in the state can drop to less than 10C at night.

The villagers, while narrating the story, said, “At 11 in the morning, we saw that there is a newborn baby girl who was crying and lying alongside puppies in our village. We panicked and informed the health department before the newborn was taken to the hospital for further check-up.”
