Our initial reaction when we hear a dog barking in the distance is to attempt to block it out. After all, a dog might bark for a number of reasons, the majority of which have nothing to do with humans. On rare occasions, though, we may have a dog who barks incessantly, even if it is not accustomed to doing so. If this is the case, we may begin to suspect that the dog is attempting to communicate with us. Of course, it’s usually our imagination that gets the best of us, but every now and then, we hear of a dog that barks for all the right reasons. It’s one of those occasions.
It happened in the Philippines when a dog barked nonstop. After a time, a motorcyclist named Junrell Fuentes Revilla passed by and decided to pull over to investigate what was up with the dog’s barking. It was a beautiful day outside, ideal for a bike trip in the highlands of Sibonga, Cebu. Despite the fact that he was on a pleasant mountain hike, this man had to stop and ask why the dog was barking. Fortunately, he came to a halt since it appears that the barking was made for a very specific reason, and it saved a life.
When Revilla came to a halt to check on the dog, the dog took over and led him to a dumpsite. He was curious as to why the dog was so interested in the trash can, but he wasn’t prepared for what he witnessed. As it turned out, there was an abandoned infant laying in the grass, and the baby would not have survived if it hadn’t been for the brave actions of this dog.
Revilla didn’t waste any time and hurried to a neighboring police station to provide the infant the assistance it need. He was astounded to see a newborn in such a remote location, especially because the infant was only a few days old. The Department of Social Welfare became involved and took care of the infant, and everyone was taken aback by how much effort the dog put in to keep him safe. It came as no surprise to dog lovers because we all know what they are capable of.
