Cupid is still looking to steal someone's heart

One of the dogs that was rescued from the Park County sled dog kennel along with about 100 dogs, is still in need of a new home.

“Cupid” is a four year old, neutered male Alaskan Husky mix that is at the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region in Colorado Springs.  Since Cupid has been chained outdoors his entire life, he will need a special kind of home with people who have time and patience, and experience rehabilitating and training dogs.  This dog is pretty athletic and he can jump very high so he needs a fence over six feet, and he must be supervised when inside the house.  He would do best in a crate when left at home alone.  Because he is so shy and timid, he spent the last few months living with a foster family.  They helped him to build confidence and feel more comfortable around people, but he will need continued socialization and training. 

His adoption fee has been reduced to just $53 and includes vouchers for a vet exam, vaccinations, one year license, and a month of pet health insurance.  If you can offer Cupid what he needs, please adopt him today!  

 Cupid was rescued from the Paws-a-track Kennel near Florissant in December when the Department of Agriculture and Park County Animal Control Officers say they found eight dead dogs and 100 others in poor condition.  The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region took in four of the rescued dogs.  3 have found homes, but Cupid is still looking to catch someone’s heart.  The owners of the kennel, Samuel and Diane Walker are facing felony animal cruelty charges.
