Meet Sumo

Meet Sumo. We are doing a courtesy post for an independent Rescuer who heard his story and had to save him

Sumo is approximately 5 years old & a svelte 50 lbs...on diet day.
This boy is an awesome dog Who has not been appreciated the way he should’ve been. We would prefer somebody who has shepherd experience and understands a commitment to a dog, for better or worse through rich or poor times, Is for the lifetime of a dog… Not just during the pandemic.

Sumo was adopted from a high kill shelter earlier this year and because of Covid they are moving and were not able to take him. They reached out on social media and a rescuer with a big heart who knew Sumo from the shelter said that he would help them out.

We are still getting to know Sumo but so far we know he is a very low-key boy and prefers the girls that are not going to slobber all over him... and by girls we mean 4 legged. We also know he enjoys affection, getting baths and walks nice on a leash. We would like to place him in a home That is low key and preferably no young kids. This mellow boy has been through a lot and deserves a home where he can relax and just enjoy life.

Sumo loves to go for walks and hikes. He enjoys good food, soft ear rubs and a soft bed. He is house trained and ready for his forever home.

If you have shepherd experience or large breed experience, please fill out an application.
