Tootsie is a tall, slender, 7 to 8 lb. chihuahua mix. Between this girl's intelligence and her sleek frame, she is quite a Houdini at getting in and out of everything. She will need to go to a home with a fenced yard to roam around in. When she first came to us, Tootsie was a very frightened little girl, but the world is quickly opening up to her. She does very well with other dogs who are gentle and calm, and the dogs in her foster home are helping to show her the ropes. She is learning to run and play with the pack as she becomes more and more comfortable in her surroundings. She is also working on her house breaking skills, and with her smarts, she's picking up on everything faster than the average pooch. She would do best in a home without small children, as she doesn't care for fast movements or commotion. Tootsie is very shy and timid, so she will need someone who is willing to be patient with her and let her warm up slowly. Once she knows she is in a safe place, she is nothing but sweetness and affection. Tootsie's a lover not a barker, and she displays perfect manners when being carried around by her foster parents in public. Right now, the world is her oyster, and she's enjoying all of the new experiences it has to offer. All she needs is a loving owner to take her paws and be her guide.If you are interested in adopting a CAWS pet, please fill out an online application at www.caws.org.

Come Meet Our Pets...

CAWS does not have a conventional shelter facility - all CAWS animals waiting for adoption are in foster homes. The number of animals we can help find new homes for is closely linked to how many CAWS foster homes are available. For additional information regarding how you, too, can become a foster, please see our fostering page located on our web site!

CAWS volunteers bring cats and dogs to the PetSmart near 2100 South and 300 West in South Salt Lake on the third and fourth weekends of each month

We are also at the Sugarhouse PETCO (1165 Wilmington Ave) the first Saturday of each month.

Our Adoption Process...

Since we make a lifetime commitment to any animal that comes into our program, we only adopt out animals to people in our area..
