Petunia the dog showed up at the shelter in bad shape. She had two broken legs, a few broken ribs, and had eaten nothing but carpet for who knows how long. Thankfully — her owner was convicted of animal abuse and she was removed from the home.
The abused dog was in need of dire medical attention and it was going to be a long road to recovery. But little did anyone know — Petunia was going to be a hero. She was going to save a toddler’s life.
It was less than a year later that Petunia was adopted into her loving and forever home. The family decided to give her a fresh start and renamed her Peanut. Leaving her horrible past exactly where it should be — in the past.
The shelter was ecstatic that she was finally in a forever, loving home — far from the abuse and neglect that she once knew. But what they didn’t expect, was to receive a letter from her new owners not long after they adopted her.
The letter is something out of a movie — it’s jaw-dropping and completely shocking. Peanut was so much more than just a “dog.” She was an angel to a toddler that badly needed her.
