In a world where countless animals are abandoned or mistreated, Strawberry’s story is one of hope and redemption.

The two-year-old pit bull was rescued from a life of neglect by the La Belle Foundation in Los Angeles, but her journey to finding a loving home was far from easy.

The article from today.com details how the La Belle Foundation rescued Strawberry and revealed the dog had suffered from many injuries including horrible infected scratches on her swollen face, two large lumps on her head and rocks in her stomach.

Despite her sweet nature, shelters had deemed her unadoptable due to the lumps. The previous shelters Strawberry was left in believed one of the lumps was a tumor and planned on euthanizing her.

However, once La Belle Foundtion did further tests, the lump turned out to be scar tissue from an old injury and not life-threatening.

After her recovery, Strawberry was still unable to find a permanent home. But fate finally intervened when the Kuhlman family of South Pasadena saw her picture online and knew they had to take her.

Having recently lost their furry companion, they spotted Strawberry’s adoption profile online and couldn’t resist her sweet face.

Kristen Kuhlman felt that something spoke to her about Strawberry, and the family decided to give her a new home filled with love and affection.

The family’s twin children, Jack and Claire, enjoy playing fetch with Strawberry and snuggling with their new dog.

Despite being initially concerned about the bump on Strawberry’s head, which may have caused some people to pass on adopting her, the family decided to keep her name as “Strawberry.”

Her unique bump on the head makes her stand out in the neighborhood, and many people roll down their windows to say hello to the beloved pup.

Although Strawberry had to undergo surgery to remove foreign objects in her stomach and spaying, the family decided to leave the scar tissue on her head for fear of inducing brain trauma.

But, they love their little “unicorn” dog just the way she is, and they are thrilled that Strawberry is healing and experiencing a long, happy life full of love.
