When an animal
shelter in Escanaba, Mich., posted a story on Facebook last April about
Petunia—a 4-month-old puppy found with two broken legs, a belly full of
carpet and broken ribs—supporters came out of the woodwork to help find her
new forever home. And it didn't take long for Pentunia to find that home.
Also? It didn't take long for Petunia to pay it forward.
week, the Delta
Animal Shelter shared a letter they received from Petunia's adopted parents
about their beloved and faithful rescue dog that now goes by the name Peanut.
If this doesn't melt your heart into butter, nothing will.
“About 11am this
morning," she 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. He said he could hear her running around
upstairs but didn’t understand why."

She writes that her husband let the dog
outside, where she went barreling into the field behind their house.
"My husband followed her," the letter says, "and to his surprise, he found a naked, shivering,
3-year-old girl curled up in a ball.”
This might be a
good time to mention that the temperature outside that day was near freezing.
She went on to say her husband picked up the girl, wrapped her in his sweatshirt and brought her
inside, where he called 911. When the ambulance and police arrived, the girl would say only one thing. "Doggie."

Hi...my name is Petunia, <3 ...it was Cocoa in my "other " life. You see, I came to the shelter as a stray from south 18th in Escanaba, April 6th as a 4 month old puppy. I had a broken front leg,...
believe in fate or not is a personal choice, but the fact that they were both rescued
from horrific situations and given a second chance at life, while their abusers await
charges against them, might very well be the definition of karma.
