Life is full of second chances! Thankfully one came sooner than later for this sweet dog named Peanut!
Peanut had a sad start in life when he was abused as a puppy, possibly even set on fire or chemically burned.
Thankfully he was rescued from his terrible circumstances and placed in a shelter. He then spent 9 months in the shelter until he was lovingly adopted into his forever home.
Things only looked up for Peanut after he was entered into the "Ugliest Dog" competition and won the 2014 title!
The grand prize was $1,500 and his owner, Holly, said she planned on using the money to help pay for other animal's vet bills. What a great example of paying it forward.
To see his triumphant moment, watch the video below!
