DD2 came across Loulou one day when she gave someone a bag of children's clothes. Loulou was for sale for the princely sum of £10. DD2 didn't want a dog but she was worried that someone else would buy her and use her for dog fight bait. DD2 intended to take Loulou to a rescue centre where she would be safe, but she fell in love with her and kept her.
When DD2 left her husband she rented a house where pets were allowed. Unfortunately pets did not include dogs so Loulou stayed in the marital home with DD2s ex. Once the marital home was sold the ex moved back in with his parents and wouldn't take Loulou. Steve and I volunteered to take Loulou in as she is a lovely little dog.
Whilst all this was going on DD2 had to move from her rented house as the landlord, who had been living and working in America, lost his job so had to return to the UK. DD2 found another rented house and in this one she is allowed a dog. As the children were missing Loulou so much she returned home to DD2.
