Eileen Trujillo’s harrowing experience took place outside a 7/11 gas station.  She has her dachshund, Sebastian with her, when Sebastian was attacked and unfortunately killed by a pit bull that apparently escaped from its home this past Friday.

She says the attack happened all while someone was on the phone with animal control.

A couple from Fort Morgan heard about Eileen’s story and were touched by it.  The couple decided to give Eileen a 13-week-old dachshund puppy.  Savannah is the name of the new edition to the Trujillo house, and Eileen couldn’t be happier.

Eileen says she will still continue to fight for justice to be served for her Sebastian.  A rally is being held just outside the 7/11 the incident took place.  It’s been set up by community members to raise awareness about the City of Englewood’s Animal Control and its policies.
