I grew up on a farm in Sparta, WI. My owners raised Dalmatians and Clydesdale horses. They got very old so my new family adopted me 4-1/2 years ago and I'm very happy being a house dog now. My family is very sad to find me a new home; my two legged brother and sister are getting older and my family is gone almost every weekend traveling for their sports. I get sad because I spend most days in my crate. I do love my crate and prefer to sleep there, but I am hoping to find an older or semi-retired person who would walk me regularly and spend lots of time with me. I do shed a lot of white hair, so my new family would need to be OK with that! :)
My mom thinks I would do best in a home with no other pets or young children. I am not a big fan of dog parks, and other dogs can sometimes bother me. My mom is expecting twins at the end of the summer; she's very sad about letting me go but she knows this is the best thing for me. Do you have lots of time for me? Would you like to be my best friend? I would sure like that!

What is a "Courtesy Cupid"? Courtesy Cupids are beloved pets that need to be re-homed because of varied circumstances. They are living with their current families, and are not part of the Canine Cupid foster system. Due to the third party nature of these courtesy postings, Canine Cupids makes no guarantee, and claims no knowledge as to the accuracy of the information provided regarding the pet and cannot be held liable for any misrepresentation or misunderstanding between the current owner and the applicant.
Applicants must fill out an online application in order to be placed in contact with the surrendering family. Canine Cupids will only be responsible for processing the application and screening any provided references as a courtesy to the family surrendering the pet. It will then be up to the current owner and applicant to then communicate, in as much detail as requested, the animals age, health, behavior, background, schedules, eating habits, sleeping habits, play styles or anything else that may assist in making a good match between the surrendered pet and the applicant.
