A former shelter dog in Michigan is being credited with saving the life of a 3-year-old girl who was found naked and alone in freezing weather.
The Delta Animal Shelter shared a letter on Facebook from the family of Peanut, who wrote:
"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."
After being let out, Peanut went full speed straight to the little girl, who was naked, shivering and curled up in a ball.
Authorities say they found the little girls parents nearby in a residence with "unsafe and unsanitary living conditions."
The girl and another young girl were removed from the home.
