Rescue Dog Is Acting Bizarre, Then Leads Couple To 3 Year Old Girl, Naked And Shivering In Ditch

In 2017, Peanut, a sweet little dog, was brought into Delta Animal Shelter. With two broken legs, broken ribs and evidence of eating carpet, it took the shelter months to rehabilitate her to the point of being able to adopt her out. When the moment finally came, a very kind couple were more than happy to adopt Peanut.


Not too long after Peanut found her forever home, a very strange thing happened. It was a brisk 32-degree morning and Peanut started going berserk in the couple’s home. She ran all around the house, barking up a storm. Her new parents couldn’t figure out what her problem was! They finally just let her outside, thinking maybe that was the problem.



But as soon as Peanut could, she took off running into the field behind their home. Her concerned and confused parents followed. Moments later, the couple was in total shock.


Peanut had led them to a ditch where they saw a little toddler girl curled up, totally naked and shivering. Without hesitation they called 911. Peanut’s dad wrapped her in his shirt to help comfort and warm her.



“By the time the ambulance and police arrived, the little girl could only say one thing — ‘doggie,’” Peanut’s dad explained in a letter to the Delta Animal Shelter. “Thanks to Peanut, a little girl’s life was saved.”


Michigan’s Delta County Sherrif’s Office confirmed the story in a news statement, crediting Peanut for alerting her owner to the child’s presence. An investigation revealed that the child was living in heinous conditions and has since been placed in Child Protective Services.


Peanut’s parents sent Delta Animal Shelter the most amazing letter about their super-pup:


“Dear Shelter,


I must share a heartfelt story about how wonderful our little Peanut has been! She has truly been a blessing to our family and we love having her around. As you know, her background was so heartbreaking and we are so happy that we were able to take her into our home and give her the love and the family she deserves.


"However, I think she still has some “sixth sense” about her past life that she has carried with her. Today, Peanut was responsible for saving the life of a 3-year-old little girl. About 11 a.m. this morning, Peanut started going crazy at our house. 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. He let her outside where she went barreling into the field behind our house at full speed. My husband followed her and to his surprise, he found a naked, shivering, 3-year-old girl curled up in a ball. He scooped her up, wrapped her in his sweatshirt, and brought her inside. He called 911 and reported the incident. By the time the ambulance and police arrived, the little girl could only say one thing – “doggie.”


Thanks to Peanut, a little girl’s life was saved today. 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. She is a part of our family now and thanks to wonderful people like you at the shelter, she is alive. Without her, not only would she have been gone from this world, but the life of this little girl might have been taken as well.”



Peanut, we all LOVE you! Thank you for being a true hero!
