I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Shorty is a 48 pound happy, fun loving and smart guy who is very much a people dog. He loves his humans and just wants love and attention from people. He does not enjoy being in a crate and can be trusted in the house with his own toys when his foster mom is not home. Shorty really likes being around people and would do best in a home with a family that is around most of the day and not at work for the majority of the day. He is housetrained and very smart. He loves learning tricks for treats and knows sit, lay, shake, beg, stand and catches treats in the air. Shorty loves any and all stuffed squeaky toys and can play tug o war forever. Shorty walks nicely on a leash and will pull when he sees something exciting. Shorty would love to go hiking but needs to learn to be off leash slowly as his attention span can be short. Shorty will need to be in a house with older children as he some fear of fast moving things and loud noises, so older children are better for Shorty. He loves to be brushed and pet for hours. Shorty is a huge snuggler and would love to sleep in a bed with his human if allowed. He would love to live in a home that gives him lots of attention and love. Shorty prefers people over dogs and would like to live as an only dog in a home where someone is around most of the time and does not have a full time job. He will return the love in snuggles, kisses and cuteness.

More information about Community Animal Welfare Society
Rescue Group Info...
Founded in 1992 the Community Animal Welfare Society ( CAWS) is one of the oldest no-kill animal rescues in Utah. Over the last 20 years CAWS, our fosters and supporters have saved thousands of lives including over 600 last this year. As the largest foster home network in the state of Utah we focus on high risk pets in need of additional care and rehabilitation
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.
