Dogs have proven time and time again that they are truly heroes. But this story definitely takes the lead when it comes to adorable rescue stories.
On Friday morning, Peanut, an adorable little pup, began going crazy for absolutely no reason, or so her owners thought.
“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,” said Peanut’s owner on Facebook.
After he finally let her outside, Peanut went sprinting for the fields, which surrounded the couple’s house. Peanut’s father began chasing after her, not wanting her to go too far. But it wasn’t long till Peanut came to a stop.
When he finally caught up to her, he saw that Peanut had stopped right in front of a small girl, with no clothes on, and she was curled up in a ball, shivering from the cold. He was left in pure shock.
He scooped the little girl up, wrapping her in his sweatshirt, and carried her back to the house. As he arrived, he immediately called 911, letting them know of what he found.
By the time police and an ambulance arrived, the girl was able to say one word, “doggie.”
The little girl and her sister were taken into custody by the Child Protective Services, after they deemed their home was ‘unsafe and unsanitary.’
This little pup is truly a hero for alerting her owners that something wrong has happened. She ended up saving two lives, and has now saved them from any more trauma.
We are so proud of Peanut and all she did for this little girl! If you are too, SHARE this post!
