We've had Cash for a little over 4 days now and he has been a pure delight. He is a real sweetheart. This 8 year-old gentleman has proven to be a mellow and well-behaved member of our family. He is a happy guy; his tail is wagging all the time! He is living with four blonde labs and they all get along great. He's a Velcro dog and will make a great companion. He's a big lover of food but has not shown and any food aggressiveness. He is a little overweight so a little dieting is in order. He has not done any counter surfing. He has not shown any signs of Separation Anxiety and has demonstrated that he can be trusted when left alone. He has plenty of energy but is a medium-energy dog. He loves to go for walks and is very good when meeting other people and dogs. He knows some commands but could probably use a refresher course. He pulls on the leash somewhat and would definitely benefit from some leash training. He seems to be an independent sort so he would probably do well in a home with or without other dogs. I'm not sure he would bond with or become a playmate for another dog. He has not been tested with cats so that's an unknown at this time. He likes sleeping on the floor, couch, or your bed rather than his pet bed. He is well housebroken; he has had no accidents as of yet. He likes riding in the car and rides very well, usually just lying down on the seat waiting to arrive at our destination. Cash is OK with being crated. He does jump a little when super excited but he corrects easily. He's not a barker or a door dasher. Don't let Cash's age deter you; this guy is spry and full of life!
