Cush is a super-sweet young lady with a beautiful brindle coat and little white socks on all her toes. She absolutely adores people and has never met a stranger. Cush seems to especially like children and has been very gentle and patient with them, even when they're running around the house and making a ruckus. She's a super cuddle bug and loves to spoon when she sleeps and even likes being picked up and cradled like a baby. She also uses a pillow like a human, so when you wake up you get immediate kisses!

Cush definitely has some energy to burn and makes for a great running partner. She loves her ropes toys, and she celebrates returning from a walk or run by swinging them around for a few minutes before settling down for a nap.

Cush's foster mom says she is absolutely perfect in the home. She's not destructive and doesn't beg for food, she responds well to corrections and doesn't grab anything in her mouth that isn't one of her toys. She's fully house-trained and does great in the crate when her foster mom is at work. Just point at the crate in the morning and she will walk in and lay down. She also knows the commands come, sit, stay, down and place, which means she will go to a specific place in your home on command. And she will sit and wait for you to release her to eat her food.

Loving, athletic, smart, patient and quiet, Cush will make a wonderful addition to any number of loving homes. Come meet her!
