A male beagle and a female chihuahua have become the new residents of the temporary home. To increase their chances of adoption, the caregiver regularly published videos of 12-year-old dogs. Internet users’ attention was attracted by a strange sign in the middle of their heads, hard to miss. It turns out that the identical scars hide a dark story about the dogs’ past. Their former owner is involved in the affair.
Dogs have scars in the same places. It’s not a coincidence at all
Peanut Butter and Jelly are a duo of senior dogs who live together under the roof of Lisa, a volunteer charged with running a temporary home for senior pets. The animals have been in his care for several months, but so far they haven’t attracted much interest from potential owners.
The reason could be their old age. Animals entered the autumn of their lives, so unlike puppies and young pets, they needed peace and understanding rather than madness and antics. Another reason was a certain unsightly defect, which was often mentioned in the comments under the videos.
Identical body scars were observed in both dogs. No fur covered the darker areas of the top of his head. Lisa decided to dispel doubts about the non-obvious marks and explained that they were the result of the actions of the previous owner.
The previous owner wanted to “decorate” his dogs. A visit to the vet was necessary
Before the pair of elderly dogs arrived under Lisa’s roof, the animals were previously in the care of someone with, to say the least, strange preferences. The fact that his pets were naturally beautiful and unique, like dogs, was not enough for him. They felt they were missing something that would distinguish them from other animals living in the neighborhood. So she decided to decorate the animals with… garlands.
The diamond-studded collars didn’t meet the expectations of the previous owner, so she used a hot glue gun to glue jewelry to the top of the animals’ heads. The caregiver died shortly after.
Of course, once the peanut butter and jelly was picked up and transported to the shelter, they were immediately taken to a veterinary clinic to have the trinkets removed. The glue caused burns and deep damage to the scalp, resulting in scarring.
“Both dogs now have permanent scars on the top of their heads where the jewelry was stuck,” says Peanut Butter and Jelly’s temporary guardian.

The explanation moved Internet users to tears. “Your dog is Harry Potter”
The explanation of the past of elderly dogs was a big surprise for Internet users who would never have thought of sticking anything on the body of their animals. The comments included encouraging words and assurances that the scars on the top of their heads only added to their charm:
“Your dog is Harry Potter ” – jokes one of the Internet users.
Despite the trauma they have suffered, animals do not lose their composure and are still able to trust humans. They love meeting new people and are great candidates for making friends. The founder of Muttville Senior Dog Rescue in San Francisco isn’t giving up hope that Jelly and Peanut Butter will be adopted together and spend the final years of their lives surrounded by loving people.
“It breaks my heart to think of what they went through before I met them. Unfortunately, their previous owner made some poor decisions, but it was clear that these dogs were loved. They are extraordinary dogs who deserve the best home together forever ” – emphasizes Lisa.
