Horribly abused rescue dog saves a three-year-old girl’s life a year after her adoption

Hannah Al-Othman: “A former shelter dog has saved the life of a three-year-old girl who was found naked and alone in freezing weather in Michigan. The Delta Animal Shelter shared a letter on Facebook from the family who adopted Peanut, an abused dog who arrived at the shelter nearly a year ago… The dog, who was then called Cocoa, arrived at the shelter puppy, with a broken front leg, broken back leg, broken ribs and a belly was full of carpet… The family, who have not been named, told staff how Peanut started ‘going crazy’, in a desperate bid to alert them to a child who was found shivering and naked outside their house…

‘About 11am 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, three-year-old girl curled up in a ball’.

The woman explains that her husband then took the little girl inside and called the emergency services, who have since taken her and another girl into protective custody… Authorities say they found the parents nearby in a residence with ‘unsafe and unsanitary living conditions’. The girl and another young girl were removed from the home. Prosecutors are reviewing the case”. SOURCE…
