A dog in Thailand has been credited with rescuing a newborn child after authorities say it was buried in a field to conceal the pregnancy.

BBC News reported the baby boy was alive, despite being buried.

“Ping Pong the dog was barking and digging in a field in Ban Nong Kham village,” the BBC reported. “Its owner says he then noticed a baby’s leg sticking out of the earth.”

Emergency workers were called immediately, and they recovered the child and reported the boy was in good condition.

The child was abandoned by a 15-year-old to hide the pregnancy from her parents, the report said.

“Ping Pong’s owner, Usa Nisaikha, says it lost the use of one of its legs after being hit by a car,” BBC said.

“I kept him because he’s so loyal and obedient, and always helps me out when I go to the fields to tend to my cattle. He’s loved by the entire village,” Nisaikha told Khaosod newspaper.

“It’s amazing.”

Investigators now have accused the teen of child abandonment and attempted murder.
