After spending the first two years of his life in horrific conditions, the Strawberry pit bull was adopted by a loving family who are happy to cuddle and play with the pup.

Strawberry, a 2-year-old pit bull nicknamed “unicorn dog”, finally found a loving home in South Pasadena after being moved from one shelter to another and nearly being euthanized, in part due to a stroke in the head. .

The dog seemed to have gone through difficult times when she was rescued by the La Belle Foundation in Los Angeles.

“This young dog has been through a tough time and is back,” the rescue organization said in a social media post. “She has horrible scratches on her swollen face and bulging eyes, not to mention two giant bumps on her sweet head.”

Previously, Shelters thought the bump on her head was a tumor and wanted to remove it. But tests showed it was scar tissue from a previous injury and not life-threatening.

When Strawberry was fully healed and ready to be adopted, the Kuhlman family in South Pasadena i saw it online and “couldn’t resist.”

“Something told me about her,” said family matriarch Kristen Kuhlman. “She didn’t find a home for a while. We wait and reflect. And we keep seeing it on the website.

Reeling from the loss of a 15-year-old dog, the family decided to bring Strawberry home and shower her with love and affection.

“She’s good at snuggling up,” Claire Kuhlman, Kristen’s twin daughter, laughed. “She’s going to lay on top of you. She is heavy and big.

The net was saved 13 years ago from a landfill in deplorable conditions. After the help of Paty Ruiz, his life took a turn: he survived the cruelty and today he is very much loved.

It’s unimaginable that the sweet, gentle pet was nearly euthanized, the Kuhlmans said.

“We wonder a lot how the bump got there,” said Jack Kuhlman, the family’s twin son. “I think that’s another reason why it took him so long to get adopted.”

The pup came up with the name “Strawberry” and the family decided not to change it because he seemed to “adapt” well.

The French Bulldog has been named the new favorite dog breed, according to the American Kennel Club.

“It’s cute. It’s got a lot of syllables, so we sometimes call it ‘Strawbs,'” explained Jeff Kuhlman, the patriarch. “We found a strap with strawberries on it. Everything seemed to work.”

The kids said the first thing they did when they got home from school was play fetch strawberries and snuggle up to their new dog.

Strawberry the unicorn dog also has fans in the neighborhood, as the pup is quite recognizable by his unique bump on his head, according to the family.

“People would roll down their windows and say, ‘Hey, Strawberry,'” Kristen Kuhlman explained. “She is very loved by many people.”
