With rescue dogs we never truly know their background but after seeing so many, you can begin to put the pieces of the puzzle together. When Cash came to us it was obvious he hadn’t been socialized outside of his home and he was under-confident in the big bad world and even at home with strangers. Fortunately, one of the volunteers quickly fell in love with him and invited him into her home where she has been working with a trainer to help Cash with both is basic obedience, his confidence and learning how to be more comfortable with strangers.
At two years old now, he is now a very good leash walker, although he does love to chase the critters, so be ware of the perpetual San Diego lizards, bunnies and squirrels that might cross your path on a casual stroll. He still tends to bark when strangers come to the home, but with the trainer he is slowly being introduced to things that he wasn’t introduced as a puppy and becoming more comfortable. His new family will need to be able to continue to work with his trainer to make sure he continues down the right path. The good thing is they will be able to work with the trainer that he is familiar with.
Cash is also your typical young German Shepherd who has lots of energy. He needs a place and an outlet to burn his puppy energy. He likes to play with other dogs his size, but like most German Shepherds, needs a proper introduction first. Given his love for the chase and small critters, cats and tiny dogs would probably not be a good fit for Cash. Sprinklers aren’t small critters, but Cash does love the water and could play for hours in the sprinklers, chasing the water, bouncing around like a puppy and just having fun.
Cash is looking for an adult home where everyone can be a leader for him and continue to help him grow and develop his wonderful potential.
