Dog Helps Emergency Workers Locate Naked, Freezing 3-Year-Old In Ditch

A 3-year-old girl was found naked and freezing in a Rapid River ditch on March 17, when Michigan’s late winter temperatures dropped below 30 degrees. But thanks to a dog named Peanut, she’s now expected to make a full recovery.

Delta County Sheriff’s Department have identified her parents, and have already taken the young girl and her sibling to another home.

“The child is fine and is well and is in good hands as we speak,” said Deputy Steve Kositzky was one of the officers who responded to the scene. “There was one other child that was located in the home and that child was removed as well and to my knowledge both those children are together in a foster care type home.”
