This Week’s Pet For Adoption

This edition’s pet of the week for adoption is a five-year-old neutered male boxer mix. He is not very good around cats, and he can be seen at the shelter.

Washington County Animal Control staff has apparently named this fellow Dash, but The Nashville News was encouraged to come up with a suggested name of our own….but we won’t. See below.

Editor’s Note: My parents have a dog, originally my little brother’s, and he is a pitbull mix, likely has boxer in him, and he to wishes that he could eat just one tasty cat. And, his name is Cash. Since I received this photo from Dolly with the Washington County Partners for Pets, I’ve just been imagining that Dash is Cash’s little brother, or son. Of course, it’s unlikely for any of that to be possible. Cash was born somewhere in the vicinity of Boulder, Colo., and he’s been neutered long enough that him siring Dash here is an impossibility. Still though, thinking of these two bully dogs running around, sniffing things, and chasing cats has me entertained, so Dash, this dog shall remain (at least until someone out there adopts him and gives him a name that fits with their family’s story).

Dash, as well as the other pets listed below, can be seen at the Washington County Animal Shelter, located at 17990 Richview Road, in Nashville.

Other dogs currently available for adoption include a male one-year-old black and tan cattledog mix, a female one-year-old red pit bull, a female one-year-old chocolate pit bull, a female six-month-old black pit bull, and a female nine-month-old black mix breed.

There is one cat available for adoption at this time.

Dog adoption fee is $30, which includes an AVID identification chip and $50 off spaying or neutering.

The shelter also accepts donations of aluminum cans to help cover costs.

All animals may be seen on or
