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 http://www.caninecupids.org/adopt-.html.
If you are interested in adopting, here are the next steps for you to take:
1. Complete & submit an application at http://www.caninecupids.org/adopt-.html
2. You will be notified by our Adoptions Team when your application is processed and approved (usually within 48 hrs)
3. Once approved, your application is sent to the foster family, who will then be able to provide you all the information imaginable on the dog as well as set up a meet and greet.

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.
