Woman Saw ‘Dead Dog’ She Wants To Bury, Got Body Bag Ready As Dog Tried To Stand

Rescuers heard about a rail-thin dog wandering the streets. The locals, overwhelmed by strays, face their own hardships and have continued to walk passed the dog rescuers later name “Peanut.”

She would lie in the middle of the road or sidewalk, too weak to move. It was a devastating thing to see.

When volunteers first saw Peanut, they were in awe that she was still alive. Every bone in her body showed. Her skin was completely furless from severe mange.

It looked like she hadn’t had a good meal in a very long time yet she held on and fought to live. Her strength was surely an inspiration.

One woman even put a body bag in her car in case the dog already passed away by the time she got there. But she clung onto life, barely.

Rescuers carefully picked her up and brought her to the vet clinic but they knew the reality. There was a very good chance Peanut wouldn’t survive.

But as her blood test results came back, her new human friends were elated. She was negative for distemper and everything else was treatable.

Despite her appearance, Peanut would be okay with the right amount of care.

Peanut’s immune system was in terrible shape and there was no way she could be around other sick animals.

The rescue reached out to Mike and Joy, who have fostered other dogs, and they came to meet Peanut. She was surely craving love and affection.

The loving couple brought Peanut home. They were instructed on how to feed her so she would put on weight but not overeat and get sick.

Peanut devoured her food. She wanted more but they knew she had to pace herself despite her hunger.

Peanut then meets Mike and Joy’s other dog and she cannot wait to play with him. They just need to build up her strength and she will be full of doggy energy.

The couple closely documents Peanut’s days and in a week, she has put on a healthy amount of weight. She’s still so thin but she looks so much better!

Even her fur is coming in, in certain spots, from treating her mange with medicated baths.

In three weeks, the couple brings Peanut back to the vet for a checkup and the entire staff is all smiles. Her progress is incredible. It’s like looking at a different dog!

She hasn’t just gained weight, she’s gained confidence. Having a home has really made Peanut feel safe. She never had meals she could count on nor people who gave her the time of day.

Now she had both!

Peanut, like so many other dogs, desperately needed a chance. Dogs are not meant to live on the streets and fend for themselves.

We applaud anyone who steps in to help an animal. Rescuers are the best.
