Sept 27 through Sept 30, 2013 – Cash is a +/- 4 month old male puppy who was at a shelter in Greenwood MS. They contacted ABMR and Coordinator Mike Pechnyo began working on plans to get Cash to a foster home. Robin Barfoot out of central Michigan stepped up and offered to foster. I was aware of a foster home in Illinois who would be traveling down to New Orleans for a family event within the next week. Tina had room to bring him north with her on their return trip, but they would not be returning until Sunday… a long time for this little guy to be sitting at the shelter. Through another miracle, Mike received an offer from Peggy Robinson in Memphis to hold him for Tina, and a volunteer at the shelter offered to bring Cash the 135 miles from Greenwood to Memphis.
Thus began Cash’s journey to Michigan. He traveled north to Peggy in Memphis on the 27th, where he had a great old time with Peggy. On Sunday, Tina picked him up as they were passing thru Memphis and took him thru to Springfield IL where he spent the night with Tina and her family.
He was picked up in Springfield by Sally Atterberry and her daughter, and taken north to Bloomington IL where they met IL State Coordinator Mike Pechnyo. Mike drove Cash to Benton Harbor MI where they met Sue Myers and her sister Dar, who took him home to Grand Rapids, where Robin Barfoot picked him up.
Everyone pulling together got this little guy out of the shelter and to his foster home quickly and safely. If you are traveling and have room for a pup, please let me know as you just never know where there is a Malinois needing a ride and you might be going right past him/her. Thank you to Peggy Robinson, Tina Johnson, Susan Myer, State Coordinator Mike Pechnyo and fantastic foster mom Robin Barfoot! I’m sure we will see this little guy on the website shortly – he is one adorable pup and I am sure he will blossom with Robin’s direction.
Have fun Cash – now known as Crash!! Lin Karrels Transport Coordinator/ABMR
