Who needs a payday loan when you can adopt Cash

On the menu: H.J. took Cash to Ben’s Crow Inn for finger steaks and French fries

Notable: Sometimes Cash’s lip will get stuck on his tooth causing him the have the cutest snaggletooth

H.J. and Cash enjoyed lunch on the patio. Cash was laid back and happy to relax. Cash proved quickly that he’s not a vegetable aficionado but he was happy to lick the veggies clean of any ranch dressing! He gobbled up the finger steaks and the homemade fries but his favorite was the homemade ranch dressing, he gave it two paws up!

After lunch H.J. took Cash down to the river. Cash was eager to smell everything in fact he’d be fun to play scent games with! Once Cash saw the water there was no holding him back he jumped right in, swam for a bit, then jumped right out to investigate everything along the shoreline. It was fun to watch him follow his nose and you could just see his excitement because he had a bounce in his step. At one point Cash saw a bird and swam out to the middle of the river but the bird was long gone by the time he got there! Cash was happy to pose for some pictures before returning to the car.

It’s always hard to identify breeds but the shelter thinks Cash is a Rottweiler/German Shepherd/Labrador Retriever mix. He’s really a gentle giant and takes treats so nicely. Cash is an incredible boy and it’s a mystery why someone hasn’t adopted him. One look into his big brown eyes and your heart melts. Cash recently completed training in the Inmate Dog Alliance Project of Idaho (IDAPI Program) where he lived with and was trained by inmates at one of the Idaho correctional centers. During a two-month period, Cash lived with the inmates in a prison setting and was trained daily in basic obedience. He was also house, leash and crate trained. Cash was taught a number of fun tricks such as shake, high five, bow, spin, speak, sit up, crawl, etc. He also learned to be good indoor companion while at the same time, he got to interact, play and bond with the other dogs in the program. On graduation day each dog usually has a family waiting to meet them for adoption. Unfortunately Cash didn’t have anybody waiting for him on his adoption day so he was sent to foster care at Emerald Street Kennels. There he gets to play and be social while he’s waiting for his forever family.

More on Cash from the Idaho Humane Society
Cash is a big, sweet guy with a deceptively tough look. He’s a total lover and adores to be around people, greeting everyone along the way when he goes on walks. It would be best if he was adopted by someone who will keep working with him and since he is happy to please it should not be too hard. Cash is fine with bigger kids that are part of the family except when he gets too rowdy during play. He is good with other dogs but needs a home without cats, chickens, or rabbits. It is also important that his new owner have a secure, fenced back yard as Cash can get over some fences. He weighs 80-lbs. and is a strong, lively boy that would love an owner that is active and that will make sure that he is part of the family as he loves being with people.
