This is Sushi, a female Maltese, Chihuahua [Mix] that weighs about 5 pounds. She's approximately 3 years old, spayed, current on shots, heartworm negative and microchipped.

Sushi is good with other dogs and cats. She seems very sweet around children, but under certain fearful conditions, she may nip, so she should be placed in a home with small children. She was rescued from a county shelter and was scheduled to be euthanized. When she came into the shelter, I was nursing a puppy.

She has never really been a pet before and gets very scared when I meet someone new. I hide and shake. I need an owner that is very understanding and patient. It's going to take me a little while to totally come out of my shell. I am not housebroken yet, but I'm working on it.

Sushi is currently being cared for by the Chihuahua/Small Dog Rescue of Central Florida. They are a Chihuahua/Small Dog Rescue staffed by a small group of dedicated, unpaid volunteers. They receive no commercial or government funding.
