China, a stray dog in Argentina, was a mother of six pups. When she came across a newborn boy, abandoned by his 14-year-old mother, her mothering instincts kicked in. China brought the baby home and cared for it until a neighbor heard him crying, and found him.
6. RaeLee vs. a Seizure
At first, Yolanda Segovia of Port Tampa, Florida, was hesitant to take in the lost dog her neighbor had found. She didn't want her two sons to get attached to the animal, only to be disappointed if his owner came to claim him. But a few days later, he was becoming part of the family; Yolanda's younger son dubbed him RaeLee, pronounced "Riley."
And like any good family member, RaeLee protected his own. One night, he ran to Yolanda, barking wildly, and led her to the room where her older son, who suffers from Down syndrome, was having a seizure. Had it not been for the dog, he most likely would have died.
