Meet Leela!
Thanks to a generous grant from Maddie's Fund, Leela's adoption fee is WAIVED!

Leela is between two and three years old and weighs about 55lbs. She is a sweet, affectionate girl that lives with multiple other dogs. Leela has been in foster care for over a year!!!! She has done perfectly fine meeting new foster siblings while off-leash, but she can be a bit reactive while on leash meeting new fur friends. She loves to wrestle and play tug-o-war with her foster sisters, and is great with her foster puppies. She is also a PRO vermin killer! Squirrels, mice, rats, you name it! So NO SMALL ANIMALS in her forever home please! She has a smaile that melts your heart and she is the BEST snuggle at night!

Leela is a very well-behaved girl but can be very sensitive. She is not destructive of household items but does fine in a crate with her favorite peanut butter filled kong or a nice yummy bone! She is crated while her foster mom is at work and is perfectly content with some music or the radio playing.

She is very eager to please! She loves to cuddle, play, and chill out on the couch. She actually smiles…well, grins…she has this silly grin when she is super happy and has full-body wags!

Leela would do best in a home without other dogs or with a very balanced other dog. NO cats or other small animals. She would prefer a home with older children (over 12). A home with an experienced dog owner to help her with her quirks would be ideal.

Leela would not do well in a dog park setting.

She is being fostered in southeastern Wisconsin. Because all our Cupids are fostered in private homes, an approved application (from adopters within a 2-hour drive of the city of Milwaukee) 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!
