Cash- A Foster Story Success 96 days . That is how long it took one very special dog named Cash to find his furever home . Thanks to the power of social media , Bernadette , who currently lives outside of Los Angeles , California , saw an adoption post about Cash and instantly fell in love . She flew to Arlington the next weekend and the bond was instant . Cash had found his forever person . Since the drive back home , everyone has settled in perfectly . Bernadette said , " Cash has been a blessing to my life , it ’ s truly a case of him saving me . He ’ s such a lover , and folks in my neighborhood recognize it , too , which makes my heart soar ." We are so happy for Cash and Bernadette !
