Abuse, Naked Toddler Saved By This Unlikely Dog

A couple rescued a little shelter dog and nursed him back to health. The pup’s owner had been charged with animal abuse when the dog was found with broken ribs and two broken legs, as well as a 'belly full of carpet'. Thankfully, the dog was given a chance at life when he was taken in by his new family. He then gave that same chance to someone else.

The dog, who was dubbed 'Peanut' by his new owners was a sweet pet. He was usually quiet and didn't run around much. That's why Peanut's new owners were perplexed when the dog started yelping, running up and down the stairs and raising a fuss.

The wife wrote a letter to the animal shelter where she adopted Peanut, and the shelter posted it online. She explained, "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.”

The husband brought peanut outside, and the dog darted away. The husband chased after the dog. They came to a stop not far from their home, and the husband was stunned. Peanut had been trying to show him something: there was a little girl lying naked in a ditch.

The little girl was three years old; she, too, came from an abusive and neglectful home nearby. It was 32 degrees outside and she surely would have died had Peanut not sensed her out there. His owner suspects that after enduring abuse himself, he caught a familiar scent when the girl was in danger close to his home.

"Doggie" was all the little girl would say to the husband. The man scooped the toddler up and wrapped her in his sweatshirt. He held her close and tried to warn her while waiting for authorities to arrive.

The little girl was taken to the hospital and treated. She was also removed from her home, and hopefully will be placed where she'll have a better chance at life, too.

“Thanks to Peanut, a little girl’s life was saved today,” concluded the wife in her letter. “She has been such a blessing to us, and now to others. Words cannot express how grateful we are that we have Peanut in our lives and how amazing she is.”
