Rescue dog becomes celebrity Posted by on Jul 24, 2008 in Uncategorized

Xuxa, a mutt who lives in the town of Santo Antônio do Monte, a rural area of Minas Gerais, is an ordinary dog. But she has become a local celebrity after helping rescue an abandoned newborn baby.

The dog found the baby in a box in an empty lot, and began barking to attract attention, and dragged the box toward curious neighbors when they came by. The baby weighs two kilos (about four pounds) and is doing fine in the hospital. The baby’s mother has not been located.

Below is a photo of Xuxa with the neighborhood children after the rescue. Click here for more Globo coverage.
