CHICAGO (CBS) — We get a lot of emails – some nice, some not, and some asking for help – and we get back to all of those.
But over the weekend, CBS 2’s Brad Edwards got an email he couldn’t quite let go of.READ MORE: No Communication With Firefighters Before Baby Was Found Dead Outside Fire Station; Could Baby Boxes Be A Last-Resort Option In Cases Like This?
The email was about a dog named Theo, who is maybe 12 and maybe has weeks to live – maybe less.
But he’s certainly living his best life now, enjoying a hamburger at the drive-thru and an ice-cream cone.
There’s a lot of maybes around Theo because he was found abandoned in Walmart parking lot near Joliet. His angels, Crystal Lake couple Jenny and Scott, now have him in doggie hospice.READ MORE: Man Shot Multiple Times, Killed In Auburn Gresham Drive-By Shooting
Theo’s body is riddled with cancer and he is beyond medical help.
Abandoned in a Walmart parking lot, Theo was rescued just in time – for a bucket list. He's got too much cancer to cure, but his adoptive parents in Crystal Lake want Theo to get all the love he can while he's here. Can you help?

He may not have time, but he’s got a bucket list. He also wants a boat ride, a fire station visit, and to go on a play date. For that, remember he’s in Crystal Lake.
And of course, he also got an appearance on CBS 2.MORE NEWS: Still Need A COVID Vaccine? Mass Vaccination Sites Reopen This Week In Cook County
