A dog found an abandoned newborn baby on the side of a dirt road in Michigan.

The owner of the dog says the baby girl was not breathing when they first found it on Monday morning.

He says the baby was in plain sight under a satellite dish, and still had the umbilical cord attached. She was also naked, and had leaves and grass stuck to her skin.

Newaygo County Investigators say the baby was less than six hours old.

Neighbors say the mother is 14 or 15-years-old, and was watching the commotion from her window. She was taken to the hospital, and is now facing charges.

After the baby is released from the hospital, she will be turned over to child protective services.
