Atticus's Story...
NOTE: All our Cupids are fostered in private homes. An approved application MUST be on file before proceeding with meet-and-greet. The online application can be found at http://www.caninecupids.org/adopt-.html.

Meet Atticus!
Atticus had a rough beginning. He was left tied up in a basement for who knows how long, and he came to us severely emaciated. Atticus is approx six months old and weighs only about 18 lbs. He still has some weight to put on but he won't get over 30 lbs -- he's a tiny boy for sure.

He is the sweetest boy you will meet, with eyes that draw you in. He will do best in a home with a companion dog. Atticus does not do well left totally alone, but is fine with another dog to keep him company, and he does NOT do well in a crate, which is understandable considering he was left chained all alone for weeks. All he wants is your love!

Atticus' adoption fee is $300 and he’s located in Milwaukee, WI. 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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Atticus, a West Allis Boxer/American Bulldog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer/American Bulldog for sale in West Allis, or seeking a Boxer/American Bulldog dog from a breeder in West Allis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in West Allis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a West Allis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Boxer/American Bulldog breeders who help with Boxer/American Bulldog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in West Allis paves the way for another one to be saved.
