Meet Della!

Della (or "Delli Ham" as her owner calls her) is a sweet and beautiful 2- to 3-year-old hound mix who is looking for her true forever home. Her current owner reports that she is a "dream" with other dogs, and would do great with a cat who likes to play as much as she does! She's a typical hound, and loves investigating during long hikes and at the dog park. She also loves playing tug of war, as well as her chew toys.

While she hasn't necessarily been a cuddler to date, never say never! However, she does enjoy being by you on the couch to watch a movie and sleeping in bed with you at night—especially during thunderstorms! She's currently an only dog and has a little separation anxiety when her owner is working, and would flourish with a family who can give her some extra love while adjusting to her new home—as well as a doggy playmate! Because she is playful and hasn't had a lot of exposure to children, a meet and greet is recommended.

Della has come a long way in her training, and knows sit, stay, come, lay down, leave it, and down, but would still benefit from additional training classes to continue to boost her confidence. This medium/high energy girl is looking for an active family who will love her and let her be her happy, playful self!

Della’s adoption fee is $180, and she will go to her new home with all of her supplies, including grain free food, treats, toys, crate, travel crate, shampoo, blankets, leashes, harnesses, and more. She is 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

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!
