Hello I’m Bear! I’m a tall beautiful guy around 80lbs; maybe one of my parents was a great dane? I LOVE people and dogs. And I love kids too! I listen extremely well and I learn cues quickly. My trainer says I’m very responsive. I am not overly confident sometimes and I never learned to say hi appropriately with doggy friends, so they sometimes don’t like the way I approach them from the front. My trainer says I’m just plain rude but that I could learn to say hi appropriately if I was shown how. I play well and get along with my doggy friends though, despite my approach. I have a way of talking when people talk to me. If you don’t know me you could think I was growling but I’m not mean in any way; it’s just how I talk to people that talk to me! I would rather not be left alone all day outside because I can get a little bored and then I bark a lot. So I need to be with a person who wants my company and my affection, and doesn’t just shut me outside by myself.

About Canines With A Cause

About Our Rescue Group...

Canines With a Cause brings shelter dogs and military veterans together. Veterans benefit from the healing companionship of the dog and shelter dogs lives are saved by finding loving homes. Working with the dogs and training them to help others has proven to be very beneficial to veterans.
We also have an adoption program for those dogs who would rather just be a family companion than a working pooch. We call these dogs our “Diamonds in the Ruff”, since we know they are all precious jewels. Most of our dogs were on death row at one time for no reason other than they had the bad luck of ending up in a crowded shelter.
Canines With a Cause is dedicated to the mission of creating public awareness and emphasizing how dogs and other companion animals enrich our lives.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adoption fees vary depending on the age and training of the dog ($100-$350). We require a home check on ALL adoptions. If you are inquiring about one of our dogs and live out of Utah we will contact a rescue in your area who will do a home check.
