I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Hi my name is Willow! I’m a beautiful lab/pitty mix who loves loves LOVES people! Especially those that spend time playing with me, petting me or teaching me new things. I have been living in the prison and I have been working really hard with my trainer there. I know sit, down, staying on my mat, greeting people nicely, and I’m learning to walk nicely on the leash. I’m a good girl in class and will lie down and not interrupt. I’m not a barker. I am also a very friendly girl and get along well with all the other dogs in the prison. I have a lot of energy when I play ball or tug as I’m only 11 months old. I would love a friend that takes lovely long walks and plays a lot! I think I would rather not share a home with very small children, as I can be quite energetic and am still learning my social boundaries. I just need a warm bed, lots of love and attention, yummy treats and fun. And if you want to share your sofa, that’s even better; they don’t have those in the prison!
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...
Our dogs are available to meet by appointment only or at events. Please follow us on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/CaninesWithACause) or check out website events for which dogs will be at these events.
Our Adoption Process...
All potential adopters must fill out an application from our website (http://www.canineswithacause.com/adoption-form/). Once the application is received we will look it over, call veterinarians, landlords, etc. if needed. Adoption fees vary depending on the age of the dog ($100-$175). 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.
