WILLCOX, Ariz. — Given the misconceptions surrounding the Pit Bull breed, dogs of this nature are often left behind at shelters where they struggle to find a new home. This especially rings true for the Pit Bulls that are also suffering from a medical condition. So when Peanut the Pit Bull entered the City of Willcox Humane Shelter, sick, starving and in deathly need of medical care, they really weren’t certain what her fate would hold.
Fortunately though, just one photo of Peanut was enough to change her fate and provide her with the transformation of a lifetime. A man named Josh Cummings came across Peanut’s photo and knew that he had to give this suffering dog a second chance at life. Cummings adopted Peanut and provided her with all of the love, special food, medications and the new home that she needed to heal.
Months later and Peanut looks like an entirely different dog. Her skin, which was raw and red, is now covered in fur and she is experiencing life as a puppy for the first time. Check out Peanut’s incredible transformation in the gallery below!
