Ophelia's Story...
NOTE: All our Cupids are fostered in private homes. An approved application MUST be on file before proceeding with meet-and-greet. The online application can be found at http://www.caninecupids.org/adopt-.html.

Meet Ophelia!
Three-month-old Ophelia came from a very neglectful situation. She was thin, covered in urine and scaling, and had eye conjunctivitis from the conditions she was being kept in. Regardless of her rough start, she has a wonderfully sweet personality. Plentiful kisses and full contact body snuggles are a daily thing! She is happiest curled up right next to you in bed at night, snoring away!

She is progressing well on her potty training and is learning some basic manners. In the last couple of weeks being in foster care she has put on much needed weight and her eyes have cleared up and healed!

As with all puppies, a commitment to continued socialization and training is required. But the time and effort if totally worth it!

Ophelia’s adoption fee is $350 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.

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

Ophelia, a West Allis American Pit Bull Terrier puppy 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 puppy 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.
