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.

Pepper, who was not expected to reach adulthood is still going strong. Thanks to the efforts of her owner and her ingenious strategy of providing her with baby clothes.

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.

It all came from family friends who “were happy to donate their cast-offs to help little Pepper.” The pug still visits her vet regularly to check for possible cuts and abrasions. Pepper is now a year and a half old and still going strong.

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is a genetic condition characterized by a stretchy skin that is easily lacerated and torn. The deformity in the connective tissue is a gene mutation that often leads to premature death and shorter life span.

The skin disorder is common among mammals including pets such as cats and dogs. The disease is also known to affect genetically-inclined people and there is no known cure for the disorder.

Knowing that the glint in their eyes is indicative of an impishness that can’t quite be contained, he gives them the following instructions, “If you must get into trouble, do it at the Chateau Marmont.” So is it something in the air, or perhaps in the water?
