A newborn baby girl found abandoned in a park has been named after the dog whose walker found her.

Jade, who has been named by hospital staff, was found in a bag wrapped in a towel at a community park in Stechford, Birmingham, on Thursday afternoon.
The girl, who weighs about 6lbs (2.7kg), remains in hospital and should make a full recovery over the next two days, West Midlands Police said.

Roger Wilday, whose German shepherd dog found Jade, said he was proud of her.

The baby was thought to be about 24 hours old when she was found at about 14:00 GMT on Thursday and believed to have been there for about 30 minutes before being discovered.

Police said baby Jade was now "alert, happy and contented".

Mr Wilday said he had been walking Jade the dog when the animal was attracted to some bushes in the park off Stuarts Road. The baby was found inside a carrier bag from The Entertainer toy shop.

He said he first thought they had found a bag of dumped kittens and was shocked to find a crying baby inside, wrapped in a blanket and naked from the waist up.

"I was just coming back [out of the park] and Jade went to some bushes and she wouldn't come back to me... I went to look and saw a carrier bag in the bushes and it moved," he said.

"I thought, 'what's that?' and heard a cry and so I looked in the bag and it was a baby in there."

He said he thought his dog's superior hearing led to the find and said he was relieved the baby had only been there for a short time.

After making the discovery, he contacted a friend who called the police. Mr Wilday was told by them to pick the baby up and he was then met by officers in the park.

Roger Wilday said it very "lucky" his dog found the baby when she did
"If she had been there overnight, I think she might have died," he said.

"I think my dog saved the baby's life. I'm very proud of her."

He appealed to the mother to come forward and contact police and said he hoped to visit Jade in the coming days.

"She's a beautiful baby... just come forward because she is missing out on these first few days," Mr Wilday said.
