Meet Gia!
Gia is a super-sweet, five-year-old pit bull terrier mix who was surrendered to a high-kill shelter when her owner could no longer provide for her. The person who adopted her passed away, and Gia is now back with her original foster mama. This adorable girl holds no grudges, though, and is just thankful to be alive!

She loves to be part of the family and is always excited to see what exciting adventures the day holds! She's the total package -- wonderful with both adults and older kids, and gets along great with other dogs, and even cats (after a short adjustment period). She currently lives with four other pittie mixes and one cattle dog, along with several cats. Because Gia can be nervous and shy around small children, a home with teenagers or older adults would be best.

Gia is a calm girl who loves the simple things in life -- car rides, rawhide bones, stuffed toys and frozen Kongs. She is house- and crate-trained, and excelled during her pit bull socialization/agility class. She's a loving and sweet girl, a true breed ambassador! If you can give Gia the happy ending she so deserves, complete and application today!

Gia’s adoption fee is $150 and she 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

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.

About Canine Cupids

About Our Rescue Group...

Canine Cupids' mission is to protect and improve the lives of Milwaukee's homeless, neglected, and exceptional needs dogs and to place them in permanent, loving homes.

Canine Cupids is a Certified 501c3 Organization
DATCPLicense: 288601-DS

Canine Cupids work with animals, within our community and throughout our organization is guided by three core values: compassion, integrity and dedication.

Because every animal deserves to be loved, we feel it is our moral responsibility to protect and improve the lives of abused, abandoned, and homeless dogs, and to place them in loving permanent homes.

We strive to work withMADACC as well as other rescues and humane organizations to develop a network of supporters and volunteers in order to create a better world for homeless pets within Milwaukee.

At Canine Cupids our founding principle is that "ALL dogs are individuals and deserve to be regarded as such". This mindset is core to the belief system at The Animal Farm Foundation. It assists in securing equal treatment and opportunity for "pit bull" dogs - as well as all dogs, regardless of size, color, etc.

"We owe it to all dogs to see them for who they really are, free of prejudice, stereotypes, and assumptions that are based on a known pedigree, a breed label guess, physical appearance, or their past history."*

"Breed related traits are not guaranteed. If a dog does conform to breed traits that does not mean a dog isn't an individual! Breed characteristics may contribute to a dog?s individuality, but they are not the whole story." *

Don't judge a book by its cover and don't judge a pooch by its stereotype!
