Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Lancashire Heeler / Mixed. Cash brings a wonderful energy to our world! Cash is a great boy that loves people and dogs and brings a wonderful energy to our world! Cash has a special medical condition known as Persistent Right Aortic Arch - this doesn't keep him from being full of life and mischief and is actually easy to manage. Cash has had the surgery to correct the birth defect and is doing great. With a little mealtime management that takes about 10 minutes Cash can eat just like his pals. Cash's condition has not impacted his ability to run and play and he actually has great stamina. He would love to be someones running buddy. Don't give up on considering Cash, as he has a lot to offer the family that will give him a chance! Learn more about Cash's condition by clicking here. See our fundraiser for Cash here. How do I adopt? If you are interested in adopting from TSBR - please review our adoption process. We require an application and home visit prior to being considered for adoption. TSBR is a foster based rescue program and does not have a shelter or facility. Only approved adopters may meet our dogs outside of a public event. TSBR Minimum Adoption Fees: Texas Sporting Breed Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We do not receive government funding and therefore rely heavily on our adoption fees, fundraising efforts, and generous supporters. Our fees are directly linked to our costs to care for dogs in our program. Adult/Young dogs (9 months - 8 years) = $275* Puppies 8 months old and younger = $350* Senior dogs over 8 years old = $200* *Adoption fees are subject to change as deemed necessary by TSBR. Each adoption, and the care an individual dog receives is subject to change and is at the discretion of our Chair of Animal Welfare. Our website does not bind TSBR legally, but is merely a guide. The signed adoption contract with each adoption is legally binding. Adoption fees must be paid by cash, check, money order, bank check, or credit card (additional fees apply for use of credit card). Our minimum adoption fees are directly linked to our costs to care for dogs in our program. Adult dogs have tested Heartworm negative or completed Heartworm treatment, are vaccinated for Rabies, Bordatella, and DHPP, started on flea/tick, and Heartworm preventative, have been dewormed at least once, are spayed/neutered, are microchipped. Puppies (8 months of age and younger) have received age appropriate vaccinations, are started on Heartworm preventative, have been dewormed are spayed/neutered if age appropriate (as recommended by a TSBR Veterinarian). ** **If, at the time of adoption, your dog or puppy has not been spayed/neutered (based on recommendation by TSBR Veterinarian), you are required to sign a spay/neuter agreement and will be responsible for the spay/neuter. Our adoption contract requires that all dogs (or puppies) be spayed/neutered within one month of adoption, or when age appropriate. You are asked to notify us when and by who this surgery will be performed. Our volunteers will verify that the dog has been spayed/neutered. If you fail to spay/neuter, as outlined in the adoption contract you signed, our organization will take appropriate measures to reclaim the dog. The mission of Texas Sporting Breed Rescue, Inc. (TSBR) is to provide for the welfare, shelter and adoption of lost, abandoned, neglected, or homeless dogs and puppies, specifically; The American Kennel Club (AKC) defined sporting group breeds - Retrievers, Setters, Pointers, Spaniels, Vizlas, Weimaraners, and Spinone Italianos; to promote the responsible care of companion animals, to actively promote spaying and neutering as the most humane means of animal control; to support heartworm education and treatment; and to provide training and education to the public related to topics such as: animal welfare, responsible dog ownership and breed information.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.
