We know that this dog has fantastic qualities of being brave, loyal and could defend home and family without fear. The farmer's dog did the same thing.

On a sunny morning, the farmer went to the field to work and his baby was playing in the yard. The mother of the baby was busy with her household work. She was cleaning the house and the kitchen alone. But the tragic incident happened within this time. There were some trees beside the yard, some other houses of the neighbours surrounded the yard like the mountain range and also a pond near the yard. When the mother of the boy has finished her work, she was searching her baby to feed but alas! where is the baby? she searched the whole yard, house and the neighbours house also but the baby was nowhere. She was crying so much for the baby and send someone to call her husband in the corn field where he was working but still the baby was lost.....!

The Dog Saved the Baby?

When her husband came from the field and heard everything, they hugged each other and started to search the baby. They were searching the baby but there was no baby in sight. Then they were thinking about the wrong, their baby may be kidnapped. Suddenly, the farmer noticed the loud barking sound of their pet dog. The dog was barking for long time but they didn't noticed it previously for being busy to search the baby. As the dog normally don't use to bark in this way, the farmer had some doubt and rushed towards the sound of the dog, When he went near the dog, he saw that the dog was in the pond and stood by keeping its back side's legs in the water. The farmer also noticed that the dog kept its front side's legs up towards the bank of the pond and it was trying to keep something up from the water by the bank. The farmer went near the dog and saw that a baby cried out by recognizing him. The father also recognized the baby and jumped into the pond and become very much grateful to the dog. From that time, the farmer kept the dog as his another child and they never kept their baby unprotective and become happy for ever...................
