Meet Panda Bear!
Looking for an active best friend, snuggle buddy, and a pup who's so happy when you come home that she wiggles her entire body from side to side?? Then Panda is your girl!
Panda is a 3-year-old, 30-pound Boston terrier mix who loves all people -- adults and kids alike! She is crate-trained as well as house-trained and will let you know when she has to go outside. She does well roaming the house at night and when no one is home, although does fine crated during these times as well.
This adorable girl is very active with above average energy and exercise requirements. She loves to keep active by walking, running, biking, or her favorite, playing fetch. She will fetch all day long if you let her -- including in the house! She also entertains herself well with a stuffed kong, bone, or playing independently with squeaky toys.
Panda is both cat- and dog-friendly and has lived with both previously, though she is very much a follower when among other dogs and takes on the mentality of the other dogs. So if the other dogs are calm and happy, Panda is calm and happy. If the other dogs are reacting to something by growling and barking, Panda is doing the same. Therefore, Panda would do best being adopted into a family with a confident, secure, happy dog that can provide an excellent example of how to behave. Panda has met many dogs with slow, formal introductions and has done great. In her current foster home, she lives with two adult dogs. She also visits a 13-year-old rescue very often. She plays great with her foster family's 6-year-old female rescue. The resident 5-year-old, male rescue does not like to play and after a few days, she has learned not to ask him to play but she co-exists in the same household with him very well.
Panda does, however, have some leash reactivity on walks. She does very well with a head collar/gentle leader and behaves great with it on when she encounters unfamiliar dogs on walks. She is easily corrected and redirected with it. Because of this, Panda requires a strong adopter that is able to handle situations such as these calmly and confidently.
She does not guard toys or chew items from her dog buddies or from people. Panda would also do well in a home as the only dog.
Panda travels well in a car and likes to be close to you. She's not the slightest bit picky with treats. She knows the commands, sit, down, stay, play dead, drop and leave it. She is highly motivated by her ball and playing fetch. Therefore, we use her ball for training more often instead of treats. She loves to sleep in bed with you but will sleep on the floor on a dog bed or crated if need be.
Panda is hoping she finds a home that will be her last and forever very soon!
Panda’s adoption fee is $125 in honor of Canine Cupids' "Pitsgiving" promotion, and she is being fostered in southeastern Wisconsin. Because all our Cupids are fostered in private homes, an approved application (from an adopted within a 2- to 3-hour drive of Milwaukee) 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.
