Meet Cashew, a super-cute and playful 1 year-old terrier mix boy with no tail! He found himself homeless at an overcrowded county dog shelter and was very frightened there. Since making the trip to Canine Lifeline and being in a foster home, he has been relaxing and learning what being a dog is all about. This boy was shy at first, but once he settled in and realized he can trust his human friends, he really lets his personality and playfulness shine. He was quite fearful of being picked up when first arriving at his foster home, but has come a very long way and is definitely more comfortable with that. He would still probably do best with an above ground fenced in yard, for his enjoyment as well! Cashew enjoys horsing around with his foster brother and playing with toys of any kind. He LOVES chasing his kong tennis balls and could play for hours outside if he could. Cashew also enjoys a nylabone and can really keep himself entertained by playing his own little games. This boy loves meal time and is very treat motivated, so he should excel with some training. He has already learned the sit command and is doing extremely well with potty training. Cashew has been going on daily walks throughout the neighborhood with a harness and has been doing great. He gets along well with his foster brother and sister but can get a little protective of his toys when playing inside with other dogs around at times. He can also get vocal if he is left in another room without his human friends- he just loves to be part of the action! Cashew stays in an exercise pen when his foster parents leave the house and barks at first, but usually settles down for a nap in his dog bed. Otherwise, when his foster parents work from home he sleeps the majority of the day. When Cashew is ready to wind down for the evening, he loves to snuggle with his human friends. This boy has done great getting into a routine and will continue to thrive with patience and positive direction in his new home. He is sure to be your best friend for life and make you laugh every day! He deserves a life of happiness and fun moving forward. Cashew weighs about 11 pounds and his adoption fee is $350. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
