Louis, 10, Leader of the Pack

Louis, our beloved shepherd mix, died peacefully at home March 31 following a cancer diagnosis. He was 10. In addition to his parents, he is survived by brothers Marvin and Dexter. He was predeceased by Wilbur and Russell. Born around August 2009 and rescued in Lynchburg, Va., he came to us within weeks of buying our house in Stamford.
