Peanut, a 3-year-old mixed breed, is now being hailed as a hero because of the amazing rescue that she pulled off.
The rescue took place in Escanaba, Michigan during the winter. Peanut was inside being all cute and adorable when she noticed something strange outside her window. Peanut instantly knew something was wrong and decided to follow her gut which ultimately saved someone’s life!
Peanut’s parents, who adopted her, praised Peanut for heroism in a letter to the Delta Animal Shelter where they adopted her from. Peanut was taken into the shelter about a year ago with numerous broken legs and ribs, as well as a stomach filled with carpeting. Peanut was quickly rehabilitated and adopted into a loving new family.
Below is the letter that her parents wrote to the shelter, describing Peanut’s actions which saved the life of an abandoned little girl:
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 am 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.
The little girl was transferred to a nearby hospital and identified as a resident of Escanaba. But Peanut’s rescue didn’t only save the life of one girl, but two.
When the Delta County Sheriff’s Office found the girl’s parent’s they discovered her home was unsanitary and unfit for anyone to live in. And another girl was found to be living in the horrible conditions as well.
The two girls were then handed over to Child Protective Services and will be there until the court decides what to do next.
Thanks to Peanut, the lives of two girls were saved. And Peanut knows very well how it feels to be saved. She was abandoned and alone herself with multiple ailments when Delta Animal Shelter saved her. The rescued becomes the rescuer!
