What a cutie Cash is ! I love his square face framed with labbish ears. He looks worried and I was not able to get a smile on his face… May be tomorrow(we are told he is very playful)..Cash is said to be nine month old but he appears more like 4-5 months of age, in looks, behavior and size. Too many pets(we do not know what too many means..and it seems too many people too…) is the reason why Cash is with us. This gorgeous babe comes with beautiful comments, though, the kind that are music to our ears… He would even be house trained. Cash did indeed do his full business right upon entering the street… He also does sit on command and loves treats. He walks quite well on the leash and is fine meeting other dogs. Cash opened up as we sat on the ground in the park. He rolled on his back and offered in submission his belly for a rub. I caressed him , plopped him on my lap and cradled him like a baby. He mouthed gently my hand. He was much more relaxed. Cash is a very handsome small pup. His weight is good but his coat needs mending. Most likely, good living conditions and a proper diet will restore his chocolate suit to perfection. There is no doubt in my mind that Cash is a very playful little guy who just needs a home and a family to get back a smile on his face. Will you be the one making this happen? Cash is waiting at the Manhattan Care Center and already dreaming of you.
Cash is an approximately 9 month old male Am Pit bull mix. He is being surrendered because the owner has too many pets. He was given to the owner by a family and has never taken to a vet.
Around strangers, Cash is friendly around new people. He has lived a household mostly adults, he is relaxed and playful with children and other adults in the home. He has lived with another pit bull (Brother from the same litter) and they play very well together. The owner has never had cats so the owner does not know how Cash is around them. The owner states that Cash has never bite another person or animal before.
Cash is not bothered when you take his food bowl, treat, or toy away, by thunder storms or fireworks. When an unfamiliar person approaches the home or a family member he approaches them in a friendly. Cash does not mind being bathed but has never had his nails trimmed.
