found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am up to date with shots and good with dogs.
Hello, my name is Royce. Not only am I so handsome, I’m also a real charmer and love to sit for you to get pets and kisses. I just love, love, love humans so much!!!
Currently I live with my foster mom, a senior female pitbull, a senior female mini poodle, and my little foster brother Simian. I try to play with my sisters but am too rough for the mini poodle and she tells me off but I can get my pittie sister to mix it up with me every once in a while. My foster brother and I play a lot and wrestle like typical pitties, pretty rough and occasionally when I forget my own strength and size he reminds me of it. My doggy family is helping me learn my manners, I don’t get too mad when they tell me off. Overall, I get along with everyone, I don’t mind sharing my toys and am good with food but am just every over eager when I eat so I eat in my kennel so that I’m not tempted to eat my brother and sisters food. I got to meet the two next door neighbor boys and besides jumping up on them a little, did great with them and liked that they wanted to throw the ball for us. Also, everyday an 8th grade boy comes over to let me out and he says I’m a real good boy.
I have a lot of energy and need of exercise and mental stimulation. I need a few structured walks a day so I’m not bouncing off the walls or getting to many pitbull zoomies; however, I am a good walker and in a few months, after I turn 1, I’d make a great running partner. I struggled at first with my potty training but with lots of positive reinforcement and a watchful eye from my foster mom, I’m doing great! I have a back yard with a doggy door that I know how to use but feel more confident if I have someone go outside with me thus I don ‘t necessarily need my own yard. I also really enjoy my kennel, I spend the day and night in it and with a few treats I go in with no problem. Sometimes I even go in on the weekend to calm down. I don’t mind, I just rest and enjoy it. I don’t protest at all, I hardly make any sounds ever, my foster mom was beginning to think I was mute.
In a few weeks I go into get neutered and get an overall bill of health from the vet and then I’ll be ready for my furever home. Because I’m so young, I am pretty flexible in where I go but I would like a very active family who will give me the right exercise and training to be the best boy possible as I’m probably going to be a bit larger based on the size of my paws. I’m a really sweet and smart boy who will do anything to please his humans and can’t wait to play, love, and snuggle with a new family.
Royce’s adoption fee is $350 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.
