Jade the German Shepherd Dog was out for a walk on Thursday when she sniffed out an abandoned newborn baby. Jade and her guardian, Roger Wilday, were in Stechford's Malborough House Community Park in England when she began to excitedly sniff and pace around some undergrowth in the far end of the park.

Roger went to look at what Jade was alerting him to and found an abandoned newborn baby inside a plastic carrier bag. The 6-pound baby girl still had her umbilical cord attached and is thought to be only a day old.

Roger, 68, said Jade loves babies. He told the Mirror UK, "Jade has grown up with children around her, she loves babies, she's a hero, if it wasn't for her that baby could have died."

Roger immediately called the police and the little baby was rushed to hospital where she is said to be doing well. Medical staff named her Jade, after her saviour.

Police believe the baby was probably outside for less than an hour and said it was lucky the baby was discovered by Jade when she was, as a few more hours exposed to the elements could have had "fatal consequences".

West Midlands Police are now desperately searching for the baby's mother as they are concerned she may need urgent medical attention and to ensure she is OK.
