A four-pound newborn baby girl is alive today due to the heroic actions of a dog in Thailand.

The male Thai Bangkaew dog named Pui, reportedly found the child in a plastic bag discarded among trash at a roadside garbage dump in Ayutthaya, Thailand, on Monday.

Pui carried the bag containing the baby home to his owners where he barked until he managed to get their attention and discovered the baby, the Bangkok Post reported.

The newborn was immediately taken by the dog's owner, to a local hospital.

After examining the baby, physicians determined the child was likely born premature at around seven and a half months.

The baby was subsequently transferred to Phranakhon Sri Ayutthaya Hospital – a larger medical facility in the area, where she is still recovering. The baby's overall health condition was not reported.

Local authorities are still searching for the child's mother, according to the Bangkok Post.

Pui is known for routinely wandering throughout the community, said Tha Rua district chief Withit Pinnikorn.

In a show of gratitude, Pui was given a medal from the district's Red Cross chapter along with a brand new leather collar.

The Miracle of Life Foundation, an Austin, TX-based non-profit that helps orphans in India, also presented Pui's owner with an award for his dog's heroics, according to MSN.

This isn't the first time a dog has saved a child in need in recent months.

In March, a 3-year-old Polish girl went missing in a rural area overnight under near freezing conditions. Local firefighters discovered the girl the following morning when they followed her dog's barks.

The dog had reportedly remained with her the entire night, using its body heat to keep her warm.

"For the whole night the animal was with the girl, it never left her. Remember, it was 5 degrees below zero and the child was wet," local firefighter Grzegorz Szymanski said.

"This dog is the most important part of the story. He is a hero," Szymanski told Reuters. "It is thanks to this dog that the girl survived the night."

In January, two dogs kept a lost 6-year-old alive through freezing temperatures in Missouri.

Similarly the boy was discovered the following morning after a 20-degree night. The child was huddled in shrubs at the bottom of a ditch in the woods behind his house.

In this case, the boy's two dogs, a boxer named Baxter ad a Labrador named Bella, remained with him all night, keeping him warm until authorities found him.
