Infant with Seizures Finds Comfort in Epileptic Dog

Louie, a one-year-old Pitbull terrier, recently got not a second chance at life, but a third!

Transferred from Metro Animal Services in Casper, Louie’s chances of being adopted were slim to none there and the probability not so good in Cheyenne either. Louie has seizures and needs medication. No one thus far had wanted to take on that type of medical condition. That is until Dalton Zimmerman and Dusti Stanaford came to visit the Cheyenne Animal Shelter during the Shelter’s Black Friday sale when all of the animals’ adoption fees were covered by the Zappos Shoe Corporation.

Over Black Friday weekend, hundreds of people came in each day, but when Dalton, Dusti and their kids came on Friday afternoon, not one single person had wanted to visit with Louie. “When I found out people had turned him down because of his seizures, it just one – pulled at my heartstrings and two – made me want him instantly because our four-month-old daughter has seizures too,” said Stanaford. “I couldn’t believe people would turn him down for that.”

When Emily met Louie, it was love at first sight! Louie looked at the baby and licked her. Dusti says, “It’s as if they both knew they had a medical condition.”

Louie has now found his new forever home where he will be given medication daily to control his seizures.

Stories like these often happen at the Cheyenne Animal Shelter. It is only through the generosity of our donors and friends that we can take care of animals such as Louie until they find just the right home.
