Adoptable Dog of the Day: Pongo in Utah

Pin It

Adoptable dog’s name: Pongo

Location (city, state) of adoptable pet: Salt Lake City/Layton, UT

Age of adoptable dog: 4 months

Breed: Lab mix

What makes this dog special: Pongo is a speckled goofball. He was given to two young girls in the parking lot of a Walmart at about FIVE weeks old (too young to be away from mama!). He quickly made it into the hands of our rescue and has been in foster since the beginning of May. He LOVES to learn new things! He learned shake in about 5 minutes. Plus others you’ll just have to see for yourself!

What kind of household would be best for this dog?: He would love another doggy friend to play with but not required. He needs to continue his education so he can be a perfect example of a pet. He would do best in a home with people who have had pets before and preferably no young children (10+ years ok).

About the rescue or shelter with this dog: Canines With a Cause brings shelter dogs and returned 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.
