Dog Needs a Home

It hurts my heart a little bit to write this post, but we're at a stalemate. Some of you may remember last October when Cash, a German Sheppard, was dropped on us. I was leaving for work on a Monday morning and noticed a sopping wet dog, (who I thought was Ari at the time), trotting down our street, looking for a place to take shelter from the rain.

After MUCH looking around for Cash's owner and taking him to the vet to see if he was micro-chipped, we came to the conclusion that he had been dropped.

Let me state for the record, I believe there is a special place in you-know-where for people that abandon animals. If you can't keep a pet, don't have room for a pet or really aren't sure if you want a pet, find said pet a home. BUT DO NOT DROP YOUR PET IN SOME RANDOM PLACE AND HOPE A KIND-HEARTED STRANGER PICKS HIM UP.

Anyway, after much searching for Cash's owner, we decided to take him in and foster him until we could find a good home for him. But so far, we haven't had much luck. We would like to keep him, but the budget for feeding two large dogs is a little out of control. Plus, the yard just isn't big enough for both of them and he really needs a larger place to play.

And we really weren't looking to adopt another huge dog. We just didn't have the heart to take him to an already-overrun local shelter.

Here's where you can help:

If you live in Northwest or even Central Arkansas OR the Tulsa, OK area and are looking to adopt a pet, please email me at askblondeambition@gmail.com

We will give him to a good home free of charge.

Here are some facts about Cash:

-He's smart and even knows simple commands like "sit", "lay down" and "shake".
-He's been around children at some point and is EXTREMELY good with our 3 year old niece.
-We have all of his shots up-to-date and he is neutered. We can provide paperwork for all of this.
-He weighs around 70 pounds and looks to be full-blood German Sheppard
-The vet estimated he was between 2-3 years old and in perfect health
-He is social, laid-back and mild mannered, preferring to lay around rather than play fetch : )
-He is house-trained!
-He rarely barks, so if you live in quiet neighborhood, this is the dog for you!

We refuse to send such a great dog to a shelter, but didn't expect to be keeping him permanently and need to find him a home.

Many thanks in advance for your help, Blonde Ambitioners!

Be blessed, lovelies-


  1. Ugh people who drop off pets are awful. We are actually looking for a German Shepherd, but we live in upstate NY. I really hope you find a home for Cash.

  2. Oh how I wish we didn't live in New York State! I'd have to show him to my family who would surely fall in love! Hoping you find a home for sweet Chase...he will make a family very happy.

  3. I wish I wasn't in SC and about to move to TN I'd take him! He looks like he'd be a good friend to my Penni, but I am already going to be in a tight squeeze with her at my new place

    I hate people that just leave animals that is not right.

  4. What a cutie! My dad had a dog just like that when I was a baby. I hope you find a family! I hope you're having a great weekend...if you get a chance, check out my new giveaway! Kori xoxo


  5. I hate people who don't take care of their pets and abandon them. Your pet would never abandon you so you should not do it to them. I would take this dog in a heartbeat if I wasn't so far away in Chicago. Poor baby just needs a loving home. I wish you the best of luck and a great family for him :)

  6. This breaks my heart. My first dog was a shepherd who passed away my freshman year of college, when he was only 6 years old. This boy sure does remind me of him. I'd love him. Living in PA unfortunately is too far for y'all though. :(

  7. If I lived close I would totally take him!!!

  8. If I was close I would love him but we don't have any yard.

    You should check www.reddit.com. Many times people had to put animals up (esp. those in the shelter about to be put down..) and usually someone will take them.

    Someone once even drove across country to pick up a pet from another Redditor.

    And it is very nice of you guys to take him in, in the mean time. Good luck.

  9. I'm going to facebook and tweet this, friend! Poor Cash! I understand the bills and having two large dogs, though. I think it's really amazing of you guys to foster him as long as you have!

  10. I hope you find a great family for him soon!! If you get a chance, check out my latest post about Blogging Advice! I would love to hear your input:)


  11. what an amazing thing to do. God bless you guys for taking care of this poor guy! I can't imagine what kind of person would abandon a dog...

  12. Totally agree that there's a special place in you know where for people that hurt/abandon animals. I am at capacity with my 2 dogs but I'm sure someone will come along and rescue this sweet guy. So glad to know he is in a good temporary home rather than a shelter. Breaks my heart to think someone could just drop him off.

  13. I so wish I had the budget to adopt Cash from you. Not only is he beautiful he seems like such a sweet boy my heart strings are so tight right now from reading this. I know someone special will adopt him from you for sure. We are in the same boat as you - our dog is 45 lbs, she's a doll but our yard would not allow for two big pups and I think our cat might freak out.

    That being said it really would have been perfect if I could adopt him.... our dog's name is June.. as in June Carter Cash... she's been looking for a Johnny for a long time. :(

    Good luck with the search I KNOW some angel will come swoop him up :)

  14. Oh if I did not already have 2 adopted dogs and didn't live in Arizona I would take him in a heartbeat!

    Please make sure you run a background check and do a home visit of the new owner's. I volunteer my time at a no kill shelter and we ALWAYS do background checks and home visits before an adoption can be approved. Too many sketchy people in the world that want to do harm to our beloved animals. If these people would only remember the DOG spelt backwards is GOD. Keep us all updated about his new home.
