Peanut was adopted in July and she now lives in the Rapid River area in Michigan with her family. On Friday, the shelter received this letter from Peanut's furever home:
The shelter shared the letter on Facebook and people are pretty grateful for Peanut's apparent heroism.
This person called the pupper a hero.
As did many others.
A spokesman for the Delta County Sheriff's Department told BuzzFeed News that they responded to a call around 11:15 Friday morning in the Rapid River area. A 3-year-old girl was found "lying naked in a small gully behind the caller’s house," the spokesman said.
Good girl, Peanut!
