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 first saw his photo, she commented on how he looked like a little baby kangaroo. Then, she went on to send a picture to her mom, happily telling her how she wanted Gus to be her next dog.
A Home for Gus
Gus was only 4 months old when he was abandoned in South Dakota. Luckily, Rezzonico met him at the local shelter not long after, and he knew right away that he had a new home.
Rezzonico has two other dogs, one of which is a herding dog, yet right away, she learned that Gus was the most active of the three dogs. He didn’t let his missing legs hold him back. So, Rezzonico knew that she had to get him a custom wheelchair to help him run and explore just like his siblings.
