found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and not good with cats.
Riggins is a 3-year old pit bull mix who is searching for his forever home! Riggins is completely deaf and is thought to have been since birth. He knows signals for sit and come, but they rarely need to be used. He loves people (and food) and wants nothing more than to cuddle up by someone's side.
Riggins is extremely easygoing and not high energy, but can still be a playful little guy. He walks great on leash and enjoys a casual stroll full of sniffs. Riggins does not have a strong love for cats so he would prefer a home without. As for dogs, Riggins loves the ladies (he currently lives with 3 female dogs), but cannot share a home with a male dog. So, if you are looking for a mellow companion that will stick by your side Riggins could be the one for you!
Riggins' adoption fee is $200 and he 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.
