A dog nearly lost her life after kids allegedly injected her with cocaine. On March 8, the young pit bull mix was found unresponsive on a sidewalk outside of a “known” drug house in Philadelphia.

According to Faithful Friends Animal Society, the dog, dubbed Peanut, “fought for her life,” in the hours following her rescue. The rescue agency stated, “Sweet Peanut had a long night under critical care and she fought for her life. She made it through the night and showed signs of significant improvements the following morning. Her tremors have not gone away completely, but she’s now able to stand, walk, eat, and drink. Her care was transferred back to Faithful Friends, where she received constant care, continued to get fluids, and was monitored very closely.”

Testing was done on the dog and the results revealed that she had been exposed to both cocaine and THC – miraculously she was found and rescued in time to be saved. Peanut has been given a new name, Suzi, to mark the start of her new life – according to the rescue group, the formerly abused dog was adopted on March 16.

Enjoy your new life Suzi!

Rescuing Peanut

UPDATE 3/16: WOO HOO ADOPTED!Peanut was picked up from ACCT Philadelphia on March 8th. She was marked as an extremely urgent case after being found as a stray who was hardly moving on the sidewalks of Philadelphia. Reports about Peanut say that she was outside a known drug house and citizens told control officers that neighborhood kids had given the animal drugs. Faithful Friends acted quickly to rescue Peanut and to provide her with her emergency medical care that she needs. Time was of the essence for this very young girl who is only about a year old.When Peanut arrived at Faithful Friends she was heavily sedated, and minimally responsive. Fluids and blood work were started immediately while she was comforted by out caring staff members. She was transferred to emergency care where she was tested for marijuana, amphetamines, and opiates. Results were positive for cocaine and THC. Sweet Peanut had a long night under critical care and she fought for her life. She made it through the night and showed signs of significant improvements the following morning. Her tremors have not gone away completely, but she's now able to stand, walk, eat, and drink. Her care was transferred back to Faithful Friends, where she received constant care, continued to get fluids, and was monitored very closely. She was renamed Suzi to mark the start of her new life.Suzi still has a journey ahead of her and your support will help with the cost of her emergency medical care, critical support during recovery, and any ongoing treatment needed.

    If it’s a “known” drug house, why don’t they arrest the people there? Drugs are illegal aren’t they? Glad Suzi made it through and is living a better life now!

    Im so sorry Suzi, you did not deserve to be treated like that, again at the hands of cruel humans, you had a heinous crime committed against you and it’s unforgivable!

    Who could, who would ever do that to a innocent animal?
    Someone who is very sick in the head and needs to be held accountable. The only way that we will ever get a handle on these situations of abuse/ neglect) is to make these sociopaths pay and big. Put them in jail, make their punishment caring for animals (under supervision) in a shelter. Deny them of ever owning another animal, put them on a national registry list and expose their cruel faces across national media.
    We as a country should never tolerate any form of animal abuse, period and sociopaths like this need to hear that message loud and clear… Their time is up, your going to abuse/ neglect our voiceless precious animals, your going to pay!!

    Amazing that these druggies would waste their cocaine and THC on a dog. I’m glad she survived and has found a new home. Why no charges for this, are they just going to get away with this abuse?

      Personally I think she sniffed a container that was dropped..How would they know she was injected when further in the article she was “exposed” to these drugs.

    I’am hoping the people responsible for this cruelty and abuse are prosecuted and not just swept under the carpet. Banned for life from owning any other animals in the future! I only pray there are no children in the household.

    Okay, I’m NOT defending the pieces of shit that shot the dog full of coke, that is indefensible, and the rat-bastards that abused this poor baby deserve prison time!

    For animal abuse, not for drug abuse.

    Criminalizing drug use by adults results in only one thing, more people in prison for non-violent crimes that only affect the person using drugs.

    I’m referring ONLY to drug use by adults here, so don’t freak out about kids using drugs, etc. please.

    Even the crimes associated with selling drugs are caused by the illegality of drug use, and sales.

    If drug use were legal, and drugs sold on a regulated, controlled market, the effects on society would be remarkable!

    A huge drop in crime, police budgets being devoted to property and violent crimes, instead of punishing people for wanting to use an intoxifying substance OTHER than alcohol.

    Don’t agree with people using drugs?

    Fine, explain alcohol, please.

    Anyways, I just think it’s dumb to waste money trying to restrict the recreational use of intoxicants.

    I do not drink, I do not use drugs.

    But it isn’t my business to try to stop other adults from making their own choices.
