Sushi is a stunning boxer/heeler mix looking for her new best friend!
Sushi was found very skinny and after being dumped. She was skinny, flea infested, and hungry!! But even after all her humans did and didn’t do for her, she LOVES LOVES LOVES people.
She craves attention and appreciates every small kind gesture you will give her. She is active and loves playing with the other dogs. She does like to be “the boss” of the playtime so I would consider her wanting to be alpha. She loves to snuggle in the bed, loves toys, and kisses. She will verbally beg for a treat until you finally give in. She is very gentle when she does take it.
Sushi would love an active family who loves lots of attention from their furbaby. Someone who wants snuggles and cuddles while on the couch, bed, car, floor, anywhere you are. She loves car rides, so a traveler would work too. She is still working on her leash skills and currently is a very strong puller. She is house trained to a doggy door. Sushi gets along well with other dogs but does need submissive dogs. She has been around cats and mostly ignores them however we think she may chase one to play if tempted. She used to live with children and was very gentle and loving with them however she is not currently fostered with kids.
