The one month old baby was taken to a local clinic immediately. The baby is currently in the care of the hospital.
This incident took place in south-west China.
The pet’s owner, Yang Jiali was looking for the dog and when she finally found him, she saw a desperate dog digging a hole in the ground. She then saw a baby lying in the hole.
According to Ms Yang, the baby was crying when she saw him being freed by the dog.
