An English bulldog who was raised in a puppy factory in Iowa, USA, gets adopted by a family. Schnitzel has several health issues as a result of being kept in a tiny cage in appalling conditions, but her new family just wants the best for her.
She was compelled to give birth to litter after litter of puppies under these circumstances. Schnitzel and her siblings were nearly by chance discovered by DFW Pug Rescue. 37 pugs were saved from the puppy factory by volunteers, who then discovered the cages housing the bulldogs as well.
The owner said that the bulldogs would probably be put to death when the rescuers inquired about what would happen to them. So they took those too right away.
Three of the bulldogs were taken in by Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue, including Schnitzel, who was then known as Angelina Jolie. Schnitzel was in serious distress when she initially entered the rescue facility’s care.
She could hardly see because of significant “cherry eye” third eyelid gland prolapse in both of her eyes. She also suffered pneumonia, kennel cough, mange, a very sensitive stomach, an infected tail that had to be cut, infected ears, and a tail that was infected.
The dog was brought to a stopgap residence. She seemed to have a never-ending list of issues, and no one knew if they would want to adopt her.
But one day, she captured the heart of a family. In order to find a canine friend for their bulldog, Hummer, Ashley Helkenn and Hans decided to adopt a dog. Through Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue, they discovered Schnitzel. Ashley fell in love with the adorable puppy right away, despite her husband’s reservations.
The reason Ashley’s husband would want to acquire a dog with so many issues baffled him. Ashley, though, claims that Hans was aware that Schnitzel was the one.
Ashley was aware of Schnitzel’s many issues, both psychologically and physically, but she didn’t seem to care. Ashley stated that the dog had very little hair, preferred to remain in her kennel, wasn’t a loving lap dog, and required a specific diet. However, there was a connection between us.
She had every excuse to despise people and desire to harm them, or to be so terrified that she couldn’t trust anyone. However, it wasn’t like that.
Schnitzel initially struggled to adapt to his new life, but his human parents persisted. She had no clue how to act like a dog and had to adhere to an extremely tight diet, but she eventually got used to it.
His new brother Hummer was one of the main issues Schnitzel had in his new house. At first, everything seemed to be going smoothly until Hummer was given a dementia diagnosis.
Ashley saw that the man was becoming increasingly hostile and acting as like he didn’t know who he was.
