Meet Hondo, a dog who is very deserving of a second chance. We believe Hondo is about 2 years old and was recently surrendered to Waukegan Animal Control when his owner no longer wanted to care for him. Hondo appears to be a happy dog, but very quickly you notice a big problem - his back legs are paralyzed and not functional. According to his past owner, Hondo was born like this but we really don't know what the full story is. Hondo is coming to Wisconsin the first week of January 2018 to join the Canine Cupids family. Hondo will eventually be up for adoption but our first focus is to get him the care he desperately needs. Please check back often for updates on Hondo, as well as, new pictures and videos to track his progress.
What will donations be used for? Great question. We are anxious to get Hondo to a vet as soon as possible to learn more about him and are hopeful about the possibility of improving his overall condition and quality of life. We would like to get Hondo into therapy to try to strengthen his back half. Hondo will need several aides in order to properly care for him; including a cart or some type of buggy, a bag for paralyzed pets, a sling to help him walk, and whatever else will make him more comfortable and safe. We will update this page often as we learn more and create our plan.
