New Family Dog Starts Acting Weird, Then Dad Follows Dog To Horrific Site

A little dog is a big hero after rescuing a child who nearly froze to death in a ditch. The dog and his owners didn't even know the child or her family, but the dog sensed something was very wrong and started pestering the owner to take him out. The dog led the owner right to the girl.

Peanut is usually a quiet dog, his owners say, and she never goes upstairs. One cold winter afternoon, the dog became frantic. He started racing around the house, running up and down the stairs, and barking. They said the behavior was very uncharacteristic of the pup.

Peanut found his owner in the garage and started pestering the man to take her out. The owner let the dog out the back door, and the dog bounded away as if she were on a mission. The man followed.

Sure enough, Peanut was on a mission. She headed straight to a ditch, where her owner nearly tripped over a naked 3-year-old girl's body. The girl was alive, but in 30 degree temperatures, she wouldn't have lasted long.

The man wrapped the girl in his sweatshirt and called authorities. Her family's home was found and was in terrible shape, and authorities suspected the girl was being neglected and abused. She was removed from the home and put in child protective services.

Peanut, as it turns out, is no stranger to abuse. She used to be called Petunia, and her former owner was very abusive. When her new owners rescued her, the little dog was suffering from broken legs, broken ribs, and had been surviving on carpet pieces.

Somehow she sensed that there was another vulnerable little being in danger, and she saved the day. The owner's wife wrote a letter to the rescue shelter where they got Peanut, telling them the whole story. The shelter posted the letter on their Facebook page.

“Thanks to Peanut, a little girl's life was saved today. She has been such a blessing to us, and now to others,” the wife concluded.
