A loving family in South Pasadena came to the rescue of Strawberry, a 2-year-old pit bull known as the “unicorn dog,” who had endured a trying existence and was on the verge of perishing. Strawberry had spent time in many shelters, having suffered a head injury that nearly claimed her life.
Before being saved by the La Belle Foundation in Los Angeles, Strawberry appeared to have endured significant pain. The rescue group shared on social media, “This young dog has been through the wringer and back.” “She has two enormous lumps in her sweet head, gooey eyes, horrible scratches on her swollen face.”
Initially, due to her head bulge, which shelters mistakenly thought was a tumor, they considered putting her down. However, examinations revealed that it was only non-life-threatening scar tissue from a prior wound.
When the South Pasadena Kuhlman family found Strawberry online, she was healthy and available for adoption, and they “couldn’t resist.”
The family matriarch, Kristen Kuhlman, said, “Something spoke to me about her.” She struggled for a while to find a place to live. We waited and deliberated. She could possibly still be reachable online.
The family, who had recently lost a fifteen-year-old dog, decided to adopt Strawberry and provide her with care.
Claire Kuhlman, Kristen’s twin daughter, exclaimed, “She’s a great snuggler.” She’ll spread out all over you. She is a large, powerful woman.
The Kuhlmans find it difficult to explain why the adorable and devoted pet was scheduled to be put to sleep.
Jack Kuhlman, a relative, said, “We wondered a lot about how the bump got there.” In my opinion, that’s another factor contributing to the lengthy adoption process for her.
The family chose to keep the dog’s birth name, “Strawberry,” as they felt it “fit.”
It’s adorable. According to Jeff Kuhlman, the granddad, we jokingly refer to her as “Strawbs” due to her lengthy name. We discovered a collar that had strawberries stitched into it. Everything appeared to function well.
The kids insisted on playing catch with Strawberry and cuddling their new puppy as soon as they got home from school.
Strawberry’s distinctive head bump is well-known in the neighborhood, as people would roll down their windows to shout greetings to her. Kristen Kuhlman remembers saying, “Hey, Strawberry.” She has a sizable fan base.
