When Melody Rezzonico first met Gus, she knew it was meant to be. She saw his adorable smile and instantly fell in love. Gus only has two back legs, so Rezzonico didn’t know much about his medical needs at first, but she knew he was worth fighting for, no matter what.
When she saw her picture for the first time, she explained how much he looked like a little baby kangaroo. Then she sent a photo to her mother, telling her with joy that she wanted Gus to be his next dog.
A house for Gus
Gus was only 4 months old when he was abandoned in South Dakota. Fortunately, Rezzonico met him at the local shelter shortly thereafter and he immediately knew he had a new home.
Rezzonico has two other dogs, one of which is a sheepdog, but she immediately learned that Gus was the most active of the three dogs. He did not let his missing legs hold him back. Rezzonico knew she needed to find a custom wheelchair to help her run and explore, just like her siblings. Open next Page to See More
