**Courtesy Cupid** Charlie's Story...
Meet Charlie!

Charlie, an 18-month-old pit bull terrier mix, is full of love! Unfortunately, he had to experience what no dog ever should: The death of his 75-year-old old daddy, best friend and world. From what we know, Charlie's dad knew that something was terribly wrong and that 911 had to be called, so he placed Charlie in the bedroom, likely reassuring him that all would be okay and to be a good boy.

Eighteen hours later, his aunt came to check on him. He'd only met her a few times but realized she was there to help. Living far away, she did her best to visit and care for him as much as possible, but that meant Charlie was alone a lot, and much to her surprise he was a perfect boy. The entire 2 months of him living there without daddy, only being checked on and fed daily, he was never destructive!

She couldn't keep Charlie, so he is now temporarily staying with his uncle Kevin, his wife and their children. Unfortunately, as much as they love Charlie, they are a very busy family and want Charlie to have the best life possible. They need to find a forever family that will love him as much as they do.



With everything that Charlie has gone through, he is still a little shy when meeting new people. It doesn't take long for him to warm up with a little patience and understanding.

If you have a ball, well that's all the better, you found his soft spot! Charlie is perfect at fetch, bringing the ball right back to you. As you can imagine, it's one of his favorite things to do and he puts on quite a show of silly antics and excitement when he sees a ball.

During the day he goes to the gym with his uncle. Lots of people come and go, and that doesn't bother Charlie one bit. Sometimes he ventures from Kevin's side to the door to greet people.

Charlie has even been to the doggie park where he did great with a group of friends that came up and gently said hello. Within minutes of proper sniffs, it was play time for all. Charlie, of course, charming all his new friends with his adorable crouch, wiggle butt, talking back and forth and running figure 8's around them. It was a great day for Charlie, and he deserves so many more! He's a big goof ball whether he's playing at the park, or in the yard at home and loves to show off.

Charlie knows sit, stay, loves playing fetch and tag in the yard and is practicing walking on a leash. It takes him just a bit to warm up to both humans and dogs, but once he feels safe and comfortable he's ready to give you every bit of his huge heart and playful spirit.

Charlie’s adoption fee is $100 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

**Courtesy Cupid** Charlie, a West Allis American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in West Allis, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier 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 American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in West Allis paves the way for another one to be saved.
