Story
Meet Theodore Winston, "Theo" for short who came to Canine Cupids from Chicago where he was found wandering the streets. Theo was emaciated, scared and spent two months in the shelter where he became a volunteer favorite because of his sweet nature and handsome looks. Theo loves to play with tennis balls and enjoys the company of other dogs. He was recently diagnosed with hip dysplasia and is on weekly injections to help ease the pain. Theo needs to take it easy when he is playing, and walks should be not very long. Theo is a lover of sunbathing on his foster mom's patio. With his strong wiggly tail, he would not be suitable in a home with small children. If you are interested in Theo please fill out an application today!

Story
Say hello to Davey, the smartest dog you will ever meet! Davey is a 3 yr old mix of big ears, tail wags, and smiles. He had a rough start to his little life but it has not broken his spirit. His happy smile will lift your spirits on the dreariest of days. Found on the streets of Chicago, Davey hasn't had consistency in his life until now. So, as amazing as he is (and he truly is) Davey still needs work on some training to learn to not get overly excited when seeing new dogs and alarm barking at strange noises. His foster home is working with a behaviorist and Davey has made amazingly fast progress! We expect him to live up to his full potential. This 45 lb bundle of sillies is searching for an active household to enjoy running, hiking, and agility with and come home to quiet snuggles on the couch. Davey's favorite toy is every toy but especially the thesaurus. He is intelligent, inquisitive, curious, adventurous, brilliant, agile, spry, nimble, fascinated, eager, enthusiastic, voracious for knowledge (and treats!) Davey loves any and all treats and with his love of playing, hiking, and agility he needs all the snacks. When we say Davey is smart, you wonder, how smart is he?!? Well he isn't a rocket scientist but he learns just about anything! He knows Sit, Stay, Paw, Other Paw, Down, Wait, Touch, Up, Off and is crate trained and bell-trained for potty time. Davey needs a family to stimulate his exceptional little brain. Like a genius kid who will act up if they are bored in school; Davey will always find a way to entertain himself. But, with a nice long walk or run in the morning, a doggo pal to wrestle with, and a bone to chew on during the day, Davey is a well- behaved happy boy. Davey loves to romp and play with other dogs after a slow introduction to get comfortable. He runs and wrestles and tugs with boundless energy. He will do best in a home with a confident, playful, medium energy dog who wants to play but also cuddle. Davey has not lived with cats but is good with children of all ages Adopt this sweet silly smart boy today. Davey is in need of a foster home. If interested, please reach out to www.caninecupids.org/adopt. You’ll love all the cuddles - guaranteed

Story
Rosemary (Rosie) has a heart bigger than her head – an impressive feat for a blocky-headed dog. She leans her whole body into cuddles and will bring her toys right to your hand, wiggling in excitement to play with you. She can also read your energy and knows when to self-entertain if you’re not in the mood to play. She is moderate energy – she loves to run and play, but also tires out quickly, so no need to worry about multiple-hour walks. As long as she can get her energy out, Rosie would likely be fine with kids who are old enough to respect her boundaries and not get knocked over by zoomies. She is fully potty trained, and tolerates her crate but is left free-roaming at her foster home with no issues. Despite being a sweet and loving dog, the world can be a scary place for Rosie – full of sudden movements and unfamiliar places. People are her anchor – from friendly strangers she happily greets at a bar to the full trust she builds with her humans, everything seems a little bit better when she has people to show her she’s safe. The biggest part of keeping Rosie safe is regulating her interactions with other dogs. She has had several negative altercations with dogs in the past, and her continuing fear of dogs manifests itself as reactivity. She is muzzle trained for her own safety, and needs someone who can handle how hard a 50lb dog can pull on walks and help her keep her distance from other dogs who may be out. Because of this fear, Rosie would be easiest as an only pet. However, she has happily lived with another dog in the past, and with lots of time, commitment, and patience, she could potentially be integrated with another dog in the future. The biggest factor would be humans who respect and enforce her boundaries and are committed to setting her up for success. Rosie has not been tested with cats or other smaller animals, but would likely have similar needs – slow integration, trust that her boundaries will be respected, and the ability for both her and the other animal to get space from each other if needed. Rosie has a lot of love to give, and is ready to build her foundation with her forever home. Could that be you?

Story
Looking for a pup who's a whole lotta woman? Meet Millie, a sweet 9-year-old Terrier mix with a heart of gold. Every ounce of her 105 pounds consists of love, smiles and butt wiggles. She's currently working on slimming down and reaching her goal weight. Millie was a volunteer favorite at MADACC. She's a goofy girl that loves walks, playing with stuffies, and nap time. Millie has done well with other dogs that match her energy when given a slow introduction. She likes to chase the resident cat, she may do better with cats given more time. She met and loved a 12 year old so, we would recommend kids over 10 given her size. Millie is housebroken, crate trained and knows commands. She is spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated. All she needs is you!

Story
Meet Aggie! Aggie is a 5 year old bulldog mix. She is 92lbs of sweetness and is seeking her forever home. She comes with the following skills already: ✅️crate trained ✅️potty trained ✅️low to medium energy ✅️walks nicely on leash, knows "sit" ✅️takes treats nicely ✅️Spayed & up-to-date on vaccines Her perfect home would include leisurely strolls around the neighborhood (think 4-6 blocks at a casual pace). A cupboard full of dog-friendly snacks, a comfy bed and all the petting and scratches you can give. Aggie also enjoys car rides. She would do best children older than 10 years of age and as an only pet. And one more thing, finding someone who has the patience to love a BLIND dog!! She has adjusted very well to being blind and doesn't let it slow her down. Being blind does come with some differences compared to owning a fully sighted dog: -lots of noise can overwhelm her -she doesn't enjoy dog on dog interactions so these should be avoided. -you have to talk alot to her and make silly noises so she knows where you are. -noisey toys are fun and she enjoys various enrichment activities to kept her brain sharp. If you believe that you could be her perfect match, please fill out an application and meet the bestest blind dog around!

Story
Piper is a sweetheart, she loves to play with her jolly ball, stretch her legs, and get lots of belly rubs. Unfortunately, she's had a bit of a rough go of it. After not getting along with another dog in her first home, she ended up being fostered within our family. Piper has spent a lot of time kenneled in the past few years due to her not being okay with dogs and having a strong prey drive. She's been with us since October, and while we still have to crate and rotate, she has come into her own by being able to exercise in our large 2-acre fence and interacting with us regularly. She's the greatest little pup. We love her and want to see her in the right home where she can live out the rest of her life worry-free. If we didn't have other dogs, we would keep her in an instant! Piper is housebroken, crate trained (currently in a Ruff Land Kennel), and knows basic obedience as well as can show you a trick or two! She’s a quick learner and is eager to please. She’s happy running around in her yard for hours playing fetch or cuddling with her humans. Piper would do best in an experienced dog home with a fenced-in yard but is fine on a leash. She does pull slightly but I have no doubts this can be worked on. She doesn't lunge at other dogs while you're walking, she just doesn't like dogs in her face. She prefers her humans to be older kids (12 plus or dog savvy) and adults. Discounted access to Reilly's 2 Acre Fully Fenced Play Space with Wooded Paths (sniff spot) located in Waterford is included with Piper’s adoption."
