This Week's Featured Adoptable: Greta

Greta is a beautiful two-year-old German Shepherd who is looking for a family to love, and her warm, golden eyes mirror her warm heart.

Greta came to CWAC from Salt Lake County Animal Services.  We're not sure how she arrived at the shelter, but we quickly fell in love with this bright girl.  Greta began her training in May and has excelled at all of her lessons.  She is a playful girl who loves to romp around in the yard.  She loves to chase things, but hasn't quite gotten the hang of fetch yet.  She tugs a little while walking on leash, but has come a long way  in her time with us and is eager to learn.

 Greta loves nothing more than to be around people -- her eyes light up when you walk into a room -- but she is a little skittish and sudden movements can spook her, so a home with older kids may be better.  She is house-trained and has a very soft voice (especially for a Shepherd), but like all Shepherds, she is strong and will need a family that is willing to positively enforce for boundaries.

If you are interested in meeting Great, please call 801-359-5595 or email Cathy at credking@gmail.com.

Changing Lives Through Canine Companionship

One in four Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans return home with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. More than four million healthy, adoptable animals will be euthanized in shelters this year. These dogs can provide an understanding, loving companion that can help these veterans cope with debilitating flashbacks by bringing them back to the present, therefore helping them re-assimilate back into civilian life.

Canines With a Cause brings shelter dogs and returned veterans together. Vets benefit from the healing companionship of the dog and shelter dogs' lives are saved by finding loving homes.
