Formerly Abused Dog Saves Little Girl from Abusive Home
Owners: A Michigan Couple
Loyal Dog: Peanut – a rescued dog who was severely abused.
Showing her love: Peanut led the owner to an abused 3 year old girl who was laying naked in the snow, saving her from freezing to death.
Peanut, arrived at an animal shelter with broken bones, ribs and a stomach full of carpet. After nursing her back to health the dog was adopted by a loving family in Escanaba, Michigan. According to her new owner, one day “She was running up and down the stairs, barking and yelping. She then went and got my husband, who was in the garage working on some projects, and alerted him that she wanted to go outside. He said he could hear her running around upstairs but didn’t understand why.” After the owner followed her outside he discovered a naked shivering 3 year old girl curled up in a ball. The girl and her sibling were removed from their home and are now well taken care of.
If it weren’t for peanut, the girl could have frozen to death. “Thanks to Peanut, a little girl’s life was saved today.”
