A cute little pug dog who has a severe skin condition was saved from being put to sleep because of her owner’s decision to dress her in hand-me-down baby clothes. According to Caters News, Pepper suffers from a rare “condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, which causes her skin to tear easily and makes her skin extra stretchy.” The media outlet also says that dogs suffering from this rare condition do not normally “survive puppyhood”

Owner Nicola from Essex, UK came up with a bright idea of dressing the pug with old baby clothes to protect her skin. As pugs are characterized with wrinkly skin, wearing baby clothes stops her skin from rubbing against each other.

Interviewed by Caters News, Nicola said: “I couldn’t give up on her and knew I would find a way to keep her safe.” Pepper’s wardrobe includes six onesies, two coats, two cardigans and even a Christmas sweater.
