Adopting a dog is a life-long commitment that comes with a lot of training, especially if they're a puppy. You'll have to break them of chewing on things, learn when to let you know when they need to go outside to potty along with basic obedience training. Sometimes you can get lucky and adopt a dog from an animal shelter that understands some basic commands and has been house-trained.

Pets Fur People in Tyler, Texas has one such dog looking to be adopted, Cash. Cash is a German Shepherd/Retriever mix that is a year and a half old. He's been at the shelter for almost a year and is desperate to find a loving family to call his fur-ever family.

Cash weighs about fifty pounds, knows some basic commands, and is house-trained! Less time is spent on training and more time is spent on bonding and having fun together. Pets Fur People's executive director, Gayle Helms, says Cash is playful, and energetic and loves the companionship of other dogs and is well-behaved and loves to go on car rides.

Cash is playful around older children and would be a good fit for just about any family. Cash will go home with a starter kit of food, a collar and leash, and a certificate for half-price basic obedience training from Tyler Obedience Training Club.

For additional information on adopting Cash call 903.597.2471 or check the Humane Society’s Pets Fur People website. Pets Fur People requires a completed adoption application before a meet and greet can be arranged. Check out the animals that are available for adoption. Adoption hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10 am until 5 pm - closed for lunch 1-2 pm. The Humane Society’s Pets Fur People is the only brick-and-mortar no-kill shelter in East Texas.
