A little bulldog named Lilou obviously had a terrible start to her life. From her sad eyes to her hairless body, she had clearly been through quite the ordeal. At only seven months old, she was discovered wandering the streets in Southern California. She had a very advanced case of mange that was so bad her entire body was covered in scabs from head to toe. She also had a bad respiratory infection, which made it difficult for her to breathe. That’s when the Love Leo Rescue group came in, picking her up off the streets to get her the help she needed.

Lilou the bulldog was placed in an emergency foster home so she could be treated for her infections and terrible case of mange. After a few weeks in foster care, she was recovered enough to be sent to another foster through a group called Northwest Dog Project, also in the state of California. Lilou was treated with medicated baths and her body was rubbed with coconut oil to heal her skin. Her hair eventually fell out and she looked like a little piglet with pink and black polka dotted skin. But then something amazing happened: her fur grew back!

Once she was healed and had her fur again, it was time to find her a new home. A woman named Cara Frazer heard Lilou’s story and just knew she needed to meet her. Cara and her partner Carl decided to meet the little bulldog and introduce her to their two dogs to see if it would be a fit for them and their active lifestyle. It was love and first sight for everyone—dogs and humans alike. They decided to adopt Lilou and then added another dog to the mix, an American Staffordshire terrier named Hope whom she immediately bonded with. Lilou has been with Cara and her partner for two years now and is living a truly wonderful life!
