Cash’s foster mom reports that she is in love with this goofy young boy. He is a ball of energy who loves to play, but also enjoys to snuggle with her or his foster sister (a boxer-pit mix). The last few weeks have been a wonderful. He has learned the daily routines very quickly. He knows that after his morning walk and playtime that he goes in the crate for the day – no complaints, he just walks right in and waits for his foster mom to gather her things for work, give him a treat and shut the crate door. After work, he knows he gets another walk and more play time. At bedtime, he will either sleep in the dog bed on the floor or, if invited, snuggle close to his foster mom in her bed.
Cash’s foster mom likes to refer to him as the perfect, “imperfect” boxer. He has ALL of the wonderful silly boxer traits anyone would want, but he struggles a bit on his walks and gets overly excited when he sees people. However, he is getting better every day.
The last thing his foster mom wants you to know is not to shy away from the previous updates that reference his “bum knee”. Yes, he does need surgery and at times, he does favor that leg – but it does not slow him down a bit. He is a happy, fun, and energetic boy. Cash will chase and play tug of war game with his foster sister until they both are exhausted.
Cash was moved to a new foster home in mid-November because he was a little too energetic for the senior boxer in his previous foster. He has settled in well and is getting along great with his new foster sister. Cash loves to wrestle and play with her.
Cash has been evaluated at our orthopedic surgeon and we discovered that he did not break his leg as a puppy as the owner reported. Cash has an old injury to his kneecap that will require surgery once he is adopted. The radiographs show a lateral patella luxation. Since he is fostered in a condo with a lot of steps, Cash is not currently in an environment where he can recover well from this surgery. If completed at AABR’s rescue vet following adoption, we will be covering all costs. He will just need to be restricted as he heals. Surgery will involve treating the dislocated knee cap and cleaning up the arthritic changes in the joint.
Cash’s foster mom will be posting a more detailed update soon, but she indicates that this sweet boy is going to make a new family very happy. Cash loves people and other dogs, and will always put a smile on your face.
Cash is settling in well at his new foster home. He is wonderful in the crate and is learning manners. Cash is really affectionate and has done great with his foster brother, a male boxer. He is always trying to get him to play. This young boy has so much personality – he will constantly keep you laughing. Cash would do best in an active home with another dog to play with. He will be evaluated by the orthopedic specialist next week to determine if anything further should be done with his prior leg injury.
Cash was surrendered to the shelter by his owners and is estimated to be around 3 yrs old. His back leg was broken as a puppy and healed on its own. Once Cash arrives at a foster home, we will have his leg X-Rayed to see if there is anything we can do now. Cash was evaluated at the shelter with other dogs. He was tense, but had good energy and wanted to play. Cash needs a competent handler and somebody who can provide consistency and training.
