Bernie is 2.5 yrs old, 75 lbs and we believe is a plott hound/pittie mix. He is potty trained and crate trained. With daily exercise, this large boy melts into an all-around cuddle-bug. This sweet boy loves other dogs and is whip smart! He knows all of his commands, including sit, lay down, and stay. If that isn't enough to show you what a wonderful boy he is, he walks great on a leash, too--though he can sometimes get a little distracted!
He loves people and wants to be by you and know where you are all the time. He's great with other dogs (he currently lives with them in his foster home) and loves going to doggy daycare!
Bernie loves to chase cats a little too much, so he probably should live in a cat-free home. He is great with older children just wants to love them and kiss them.
Bernie would love to become part of an active family that will give him daily exercise and then lots of snuggles. If you're ready to share your couch, apply to adopt Bernie today!
Bernie's adoption fee is $200 and he is being fostered in southeastern Wisconsin. Because all our Cupids are fostered in private homes, an approved application MUST be on file before proceeding with a meet-and-greet. The online application can be found at http://www.caninecupids.org/adopt-.html.

Our Thoughts on Visual Breed Identification
Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable. For most of our adoptable Cupids we are only guessing at the predominant breed or breed mix. We think it’s most important is to get to know each dog as an individual! We then do our best to describe each of our adoptable Cupids based on their personalities in order to determine whether they’ll make good companions based on prospective adopters’ lifestyles. Dog behavior is not exclusive to breed — it’s a complex mix of nature and nurture.
