A volunteer writes: If you’re looking for a charming, handsome, family-friendly pet then you’ll need to move quickly because Cashish is Adoptable with a capital A and he came to us with a superstar resume that should have potential pet parents beating a fast track to his kennel door! Surrendered due to his former family’s housing issues, Cashish lived in happy harmony with two small dogs and a 5-year-old child and is said to be very gentle and tolerant of children, even allowing them to play on him. He can be a little shy with adult strangers but believe me, it doesn’t take long for him to warm up, jump up and start slathering you in big doggie kisses! He never guards his things, is both house and crate trained (though he prefers to sleep beside his owners bed) and for exercise he loves to run on leash alongside a bike or off leash in the park, which may explain why his walking leash manners need a little tweaking — an easy fix once you see how well he responds to the ‘motivation’ of some tasty roast beef. Cashish already knows commands for come, sit and stay and demonstrates them all very nicely for me and when taking treats from my hand his grip is sooo soft, they sometimes end up on the ground instead of in his mouth. Out in the yard he greets other dogs with a friendly wagging tail and needless to say, he did a phenomenal job when it came to his behavior assessment and would make the most wonderful addition to almost any kind of home. Give Cashish the gift of freedom and he’ll return your kindness ten-fold with a lifetime of love, loyalty and lots and lots of kisses!
