Meet Sushi

Sushi came to us as a owner surrender due to living situations they could no longer keep him. He is friendly to everyone he meets. Friendly with dogs he knows and the different dogs he shares a kennel fence with. Has never encountered cats. His file says he likes to play with squeaky and tug toys but when we tried to play with him, he was not interested in toys. He is afraid of fireworks like most dogs. He has a history of jumping fences with his past owner but we have not had an issue, but we would recommend a tall fence or acreage.
He loves kids but could use more training in obedience. He walks perfect on a leash! No pulling at all! He is sweet and playful but does have a high herding and chase drive per the previous owner. He is a good dog, just needs some structure and some basic obedience or a job. Probably make a great farm dog.
Sushi was adopted out and nipped one of the children in the household on the arm and he was returned. We do not know the situation. Heelers tend to be nippers unfortunately and they are not a dog for everyone.
