If you’re looking for your next little spoon or jogging buddy, Cusi is your gall! By night, Cusi is a cuddlebug who can sleep for 10+ hours without interruption. By day, she is playful, high energy, and loves to please. She is almost 3 years old, microchipped, spayed, and a healthy 60 lbs. When she’s not by your side, she can be found playing with her tennis ball or curled up on a soft, fuzzy blanket.
Cusi thrives being in a space with lots of action and attention – we think she’ll be happiest with another medium to high energy dog, with lots of people who want to provide love, and/or in a home with a backyard. She is well-behaved: potty trained, happy to ride in cars, not food motivated, and does not chew human items. She doesn’t mind being prodded for nail trims, teeth cleaning, or ear cleaning, and loves all people elementary age or older.
Cusi loves greeting humans with a big lick and tail wag (she rarely jumps), and is learning basic commands quickly. Though she is still adjusting to being home alone after being neglected by previous owners and has low confidence around bigger dogs, we have already seen progress with training thus far. We think further training (or perhaps another furry friend at home with her) will help her to ease into new environments. We have not seen her react negatively to cats, birds, or other small animals.
Cusi showed up in our lives initially as a stray, then after she was owner-surrendered we took her in to care for her until we could find her a better home. She is truly one of the sweetest dogs.

To expedite the adoption process, please complete the cat or dog adoption form and bring a printed copy with you to the SF SPCA Adoption Center (Hours & Location). This helps us better understand what sort of pet you’re looking for so we can guide you every step of the way! Please bring a valid photo ID and verification that you are allowed to have a pet where you currently live.
First, we’ll meet with you to find out more about you and your pet preferences and answer your questions. Our goal is to help you find the pet that best fits your lifestyle and living situation so we want to make sure you have a realistic understanding of the time and resources necessary to provide training, medical treatment, and proper care for your new pet. This can take time so please allow at least one hour for the adoption process.
Once we have a good understanding of your living situation and the type of pet you’re interested in, we’ll make introductions and let you spend some quality time getting to know each other to see if there’s a love connection. It’s important that all household members take part in this important decision so please make sure everyone is present (including any resident dogs if you’re considering adding a new pooch to your pack).
Once love happens, we’ll complete the paperwork, review all the SF SPCA adoption benefits, provide information on any known medical or behavioral issues, and share tips to make the transition a success for both you and your new pet.
We consider you and your new furry friend a part of the SF SPCA family so please reach out with questions ― and be sure to share your adoption stories and pet photos at sfspca.org/stories
Don’t forget to schedule your first free health exam at the SF SPCA Veterinary Hospital within three days of adopting.
