Different life experiences shape the way we see our world and, oddly, abandoned, abused and neglected pets still see the glass half full. Once in a place of security, their scars will heal, confidence grows and they learn to trust. When this is accomplished, we see their zest for life appear. And, what a wonderful thing to witness and be a part of!
Gigi is an extraordinary dog looking for a home. After waiting in an animal control facility for two months, this sweet girl experienced a seizure. Because seizures will not be managed in a “pound,” she was sure to meet with a harsh fate. Her wonderful temperament assured Gigi the opportunity to be rescued.
This deserving girl has an unbridled enthusiasm for life that can't be rivaled. Everything in life is new and exciting to her, and it's a pleasure watching her revel in joy when she experiences something for the first time. She has never met a creature, or person, she didn't want to befriend. She loves to play with her canine cohorts, and when she's tuckered out she will snuggle up with her best friend - a little black cat!
We don't know whether Gigi's epilepsy is a result of the stress-inducing environment of a shelter, or if she's dealt with it her entire life. She shows stability on her anti-seizure medication and is living a normal life – but not in a normal environment! Lucky for Gigi, her treatment is not expensive and her condition is easy to manage. Most importantly, she’s worth it! Thank you, Olivia Mandala, photographer, for making Gigi look as beautiful as she is.
