Next month will mark Cash’s 1 year anniversary as a resident of our Dog Adoption center. This handsome pup came through our doors as an owner surrender after he developed aggression issues in his home. After administering a temperament test, our animal behaviorist found that Cash is a sweet, eager to please young dog — who would get over stimulated easily. To quote her, “when he becomes overstimulated he has had a tendency to show signs of aggression, he is very workable though. He’s motivated and very much wants to please.”
What this meant for Cash and BHS is that we both had our work cut out for us. If we were going to find him a home we needed to work on his issues, and that process would take time. We are happy to say that with steady work from both dedicated volunteers – some of whom came to the shelter on a daily basis to work with Cash – and BHS staff members, Cash is a much different dog today. His eagerness to please, essentially cheerful nature, and desire to be close to his favorite people helped him a great deal with unlearning his bad habits and even more importantly helped him learn that humans can be trusted. He has been ready for a couple months now to join a permanent family, and is patiently waiting for the right human to make him their best friend.
Here’s where you come in. Without your support, both in terms of hours volunteered and in-kind as well as monetary donations, we wouldn’t have been able to keep Cash here as long as we have. This dog needed our help and our supporters, YOU, helped him. It’s thanks to people like you that animals like Cash are able to stay at the shelter for as long as it takes for them to find the right home. It’s thanks to you that an animal is rarely ever considered beyond rehabilitation, and more lives are saved as a result.
