A pitbull with a massive lump on her head was slated to be euthanized despite being just two-years-old.
Thankfully, rescuers from the La Belle Foundation stepped up and rescued Strawberry.
The La Belle Foundation shared on Instagram: “When we saw her shelter picture on @iloverescue’s page, her skin was bright pink with infection, she had two lumps on her head, and we knew we needed to help her.”
They shared photos of the dog and she had a massive visible lump on her head. While things looked rough for the dog, the foundation shared: “After MRI’s, biopsies, and many vet exams, we found that the lumps on her head are just tissue from an old injury and are not life threatening.”
“However, removal of the tissue would mean risking her life. We love Strawberry just the way she is and are confident we will find a family for her that feels the same as us,” they added.
Strawberry was placed in a foster home with a couple named Shaunee and Marcus while she awaited a forever home. Despite her condition, the rescue described her as “so full of unconditional love.” They added, “It’s clear she wasn’t treated well in her past life, but that doesn’t stop her from being the most loving girl.”
Thankfully, it wasn’t long before someone stepped up to offer Strawberry the loving forever home she deserves. The foundation shared an update on Instagram and said in the comments that Strawberry had been adopted.
Hopefully she’s living her best life now that she’s adopted!
