Suki is a gorgeous white dog with black spots and big, sweet brown eyes. Her coat is soft and silky.
Suki is a gentle, low-energy sweetheart who loves leisurely walks and relaxing. She is quite independent, no-nonsense, and spends the majority of her days resting and napping. Because of partial hearing loss, she has a loud Woof, so she would do best in a free-standing house rather than an apartment or a condo.
She is completely house-trained and can be left unsupervised and uncrated with no issues. Suki has been the only pet in her foster home, so her ability to live with other dogs, cats, or young children is unknown. However, on our daily walks around the neighborhood, she is great when meeting friendly dogs, and has a neighborhood kitty friend who walks up to her and flops on his back while she sniffs and nuzzles him. She is especially easy and calm when meeting other humans, and particularly loves kids.
During doggy playdates, Suki wears out fairly easily and has trouble settling with another dog around. She would do well as an only dog, but may be able to live with a friendly canine companion. Suki sometimes barks to communicate with her people that she wants food or to go for a walk.
Most details of her history are unknown, but it is clear that she has had multiple litters of puppies. In just a few short months, Suki has transformed from timid and depressed to happy and bright-eyed. This strong and gentle girl now wags her tail, gives kisses, and loves belly rubs.
Suki is an absolutely adorable dog, and will make a wonderful companion in her forever home. She just needs a loving, caring home where she can relax, continue to blossom, and lead a secure and happy life.
Suki is up-to-date on all vaccines, microchipped, heartworm negative, and spayed. She has partial hearing loss and has been diagnosed with solar-induced skin cancer. This is being managed with herbal treatments and she will likely live easily and happily for a number of years. Suki takes Apoquel daily for environmental allergies.
Suki was surrendered to a rural shelter.
