Atsushi in Savage, MD

Update 5-7-22: We have received several good applications for this pup so aren’t taking more for now. Thank you!

Atsushi, which means “compassionate warrior” in Japanese, is here to prove that he definitely lives up to his name… well, at least the compassionate part. He is an expressive and loving Ruby Cavalier whose smile will melt your heart. Born on 04/27/2020, Atsushi, also called “Sushi” by his foster family, is 1.5 years old and was turned over to Cavalier Rescue USA when his family recognized that he needed a forever home that could provide more time and attention.

Atsushi knows all basic commands and is well-behaved, always ready for his next “job”. He absolutely loves to play with toys, wrestle with his foster brothers and friends, and explore new places. He is fully house trained and is good about indicating when he needs to go outside.  Atsushi is a love bug who has never met a stranger and he’s always looking for the next warmest lap to snuggle in. He loves to give kisses to his people and when he’s feeling very comfortable, he shows off with the cutest little love nibbles.

Currently Atsushi lives with two pup foster brothers and really enjoys spending time running and playing with them, while also taking his own down time. Atsushi is crate trained for both overnight sleeping and being left alone for extended periods of time. Atsushi is an incredible Cavalier, a wonderful dog all around and he can’t wait to bring joy, love, and laughs to your family!
