HERE’S SUSHI….and she is about as delicious as a platter of Sashimi!  This absolutely adorable, tri colored w/ black mask, 14 lb, Lhasa Apso mix, is only 8 months old (DOB 10/2024) and was being dumped in the East Valley Shelter.  The owner said he was going to be evicted so he could no longer keep her — thank doG a seasoned foster was at the entrance who intercepted said she would take her.   Intact, not fully vaccinated and needing a grooming, even though owner didn’t provide much further information, there was no way she was going into the shelter!  She will be spayed and fully vaccinated before she goes home!

Sushi is super social, friendly with everyone and everything…loves playing with toys and other dogs, giving kisses and happily cuddling with her humans!  While a bit overgrown (she is getting groomed this week), it is clear that she was cared for, but probably not as well as she will be!  Even though she is still a puppy, she sleeps through the night and is mostly quiet — though she does bark at bigger dogs on walks.  That’s her job after all…protecting her humans.  Foster is working on this and Sushi is responding.  Very smart, wants to please!

Sushi is on a new adventure to find the ideal home, one where there is another playful dog, someone who works from home or is home and active enough to work with a puppy!  Puppies have a lot of energy and when you have a Lhasa, they need to know who the boss is and respect you!  It’s apparent the former owner didn’t spend much time with her, as she is still learning where the bathroom is!  That being said, she is getting better and better every day and accidents are much fewer!  She hasn’t been cat or kid tested, but her foster feels she will be good with both!   The owner remarked that he had young children and she was wonderful. 

If Sushi sounds like a pup you could love for life…let us know!  She would probably not be a good match for a mature home…but one with children over 8 yrs old might just be the ticket.
