Hi, my name is Duke (I'm the tall handsome one) and I want to tell you about my new buddy Gus (small dude in bed).

I’m so excited and grateful that Gus was rescued by Tails of Hope after he was found wondering the streets of Waukegan. Gus is a one-year-old Cockapoo. He’s such a sweet, loving, trusting dog. But, he is in some pain, too. He was found with a broken hip. I overheard the humans saying that maybe he was kicked, and that made me so sad to even think about … I already have this little guy’s back, and I can’t imagine anyone ever hurting him. I’ve learned, as I’ve watched so many animals come and go throughTails of Hope, that there are just some bad people out there. Fortunately, there are GREAT people, too … like Kelly!!! Kelly is the woman who rescued me and my new buddy Gus. She’s the best! She keeps us safe and finds us new loving homes.

But, Kelly can only do so much: My little buddy needs surgery for his hip. And, the surgery is going to cost $2,800! That’s a lot of kibble, huh? He deserves it though. He shouldn’t have to live in any pain. Plus, I know once he has the surgery, he will be permanently adopted and will live happily ever after, like me! (My dad is such a cool dude!)

Let’s give Gus a chance to walk and run pain free.


I thank you in advance for any help you can offer to my awesome new buddy!

Woof. See you at the park!

XOXO, Duke
