Awwwww! Filipino security guard rocks troubled puppy to sleep

This is the adorable moment a security guard holds a troubled puppy in his arms to gently rock it to sleep.

The man was on duty at a hospital in Manila, Philippines, when he noticed the dog that wouldn't stop barking.

The guard, identified later as Armando Gulla, picked up the pooch and cradled it like a baby, soothing it until it fell asleep in his arms.

The touching scene was captured by a visitor to the centre.

Speaking after, Armando said: ''I only started the job a month ago so I wanted to do the best I could.

"The dog would not settle down and I felt sorry for him. After I picked him up he relaxed and fell asleep.''

The footage was captured on February 20.
