Traits

Basic Food (Staple)

Category: Theme

The vast, vast majority of soosh are born from various kinds of food and drink around the world.

This trait includes...

  • Real world food/drink
  • Imagined food/drink using real world ingredients
  • Fictional foods that could exist in the real world

Because many food and drink items can be created using different recipes and techniques, there could be more than one in existence. It is not necessary to ensure your basic food themed soosh has a unique name for its concept, so long as it looks distinct from other soosh!

Any foods/drinks that include names or images legally protected words or symbols will be classed as specialty food instead and cannot be used without express permission. In most cases, you can get around that limitation by using a more generic name!

Specialty Food (Limited)

Category: Theme

Some food and drink themes are a little more unique than others. These are classified as specialty foods!

This trait includes...

  • Fantasy food/drink with magical effects
  • Fictional food/drink that does not exist in the real world
  • Food/drink that uses legally protected names or images

Specialty food themed soosh CANNOT be created except by Chital or with her express permission. Unlike basic food themes, specialty food themes are never duplicated--there can only be one in existence!

Celestial (Limited)

Category: Theme

Celestial themes can only be used by celestial soosh! These themes are not associated with any sort of food or drink, and are instead...well, celestial! This includes planets, stars, constellations, or sometimes even more abstract concepts.

Standard (Staple)

Category: Build

A normal, single headed Sushi Dog with one personality. The most commonly seen type of Soosh.

Bihead (Staple)

Category: Build

Sometimes referred to as "Orthrus" soosh, in reference to the two-headed dog of Greek mythology. Soosh with this body type have two heads with two distinct personalities. They tend to be slightly larger than a standard soosh since their body needs to accommodate a second head.

Trihead (Staple)

Category: Build

Sometimes referred to as "Cerberus" soosh, in reference to the three-headed dog of Greek mythology. This is a three-headed soosh with three distinct personalities. Trihead soosh are significantly larger than standard and bihead soosh, in order to accommodate their third head.

Diptych (Staple)

Category: Build

This is a soosh that began as a Standard, but split itself into two smaller forms. Both bodies retain the original personality, and count as one soosh. A diptych's two bodies are each about 1/2 the size of a standard soosh.

Triptych (Staple)

Category: Build

This is a soosh that began as a Standard, but split itself into three smaller forms. All three bodies retain the original personality, and count as one soosh. A triptych's three bodies are each about 1/3 the size of a standard soosh.

Perky Ears (Staple)

Category: Ears

Perky ears (usually) stand upright and alert! Perky ears should be situated towards the sides of the head (unless combined with foxy ears), tipped in a gently rounded point (unless combined with round ears or tufted ear tips), and no taller than one half the height of the head (unless combined with large ears).

(Merged trait: side ears)

*Staple ear traits can be mixed and matched, where each trait is applied to one ear (ex. perky and floppy, floppy and lop, etc.)

Floppy Ears (Staple)

Category: Ears

Floppy ears fold forward, either completely or only slightly. Floppy ears should be situated towards the sides of the head (unless combined with foxy ears), tipped in a gently rounded point (unless combined with round ears or tufted ear tips), and no taller than one half the height of the head (unless combined with large ears).

(Merged trait: folded ears)

*Staple ear traits can be mixed and matched, where each trait is applied to one ear (ex. perky and floppy, floppy and lop, etc.)

Lop Ears (Staple)

Category: Ears

Lop ears hang on the sides of the head (contrast with floppy ears, which fold forward!). Lop ears should be situated towards the sides of the head (always), tipped in a gently rounded point (unless combined with round ears or tufted ear tips), and no taller than one half the height of the head (unless combined with large ears or mega lop ears).

(Note: previously, lop ears were allowed to be round without requiring the round ears trait. Lop eared soosh created before 27 March 2020 will have the round ears trait added as a courtesy, and all later lop eared soosh will be required to have pointed tips unless combined with round ears. Thank you! <3)

*Staple ear traits can be mixed and matched, where each trait is applied to one ear (ex. perky and floppy, floppy and lop, etc.)

Round Ears (Gourmet)

Category: Ears

AKA ursa ears. Round ears are have a more prominent curve at the ear tips, often creating a completely circular appearance!

This trait can be stacked with any other ear traits (ex. for "bear ears" combine round ears and perky ears).

Tufted Ear Tips (Gourmet)

Category: Ears

AKA lynx tufts or lynx ears. Ears with tufted ear tips have a longer tuft of fur at the tips of the ears compared to the fur on the rest of the ear.

This trait can be stacked with any other ear traits (ex. for "lynx ears" combine tufted ear tips with perky ears).

Large Ears (Gourmet)

Category: Ears

Large ears are more than one half the height of the head proportionally, and allow slightly more flexibility as far as shape goes compared to other ear traits. Large ears should be no longer than the full height of the head.

This trait can be stacked with any other ear traits except mega lop ears.

Foxy Ears (Mythical)

Category: Ears

Mythical - Kitsoosh trait

Foxy ears are positioned more towards the top of the head, and are more pointed than other ear traits! Foxy ears also have increased size limits--unaltered they can be up to the full height of the head proportionally, and when combined with large ears, can be up to two heads tall (creating a more "fennec fox" look!).

This trait can be stacked with any other ear traits except lop ears, round ears, and mega lop ears.

Mega Lop Ears (Mythical)

Category: Ears

Mythical - Faesoosh trait

Mega lop ears are EXTREMELY long! Like lop ears, mega lop ears hang on the sides of the head, and can be as long as the full length of the soosh's body (minimum length is twice the height of the head).

This trait can be stacked with any other ear traits except perky ears, floppy ears, lop ears, large ears, and foxy ears.

Cheek Shape - Default (Staple)

Category: Cheek Pouches

Default cheek shapes are always a full circle or oval. If a soosh has small freckles or beauty marks, they can "bleed" onto the cheek pouches, but they should not be only on the cheek pouches.

Cheek Color - Default (Staple)

Category: Cheek Pouches

Default cheek pouch colors are always one solid color across both cheeks. If a soosh has small freckles or beauty marks, they can "bleed" onto the cheek pouches, but they should not be only on the cheek pouches.

Cheek Shape - Shaped (Gourmet)

Category: Cheek Pouches

Shaped cheek pouches can be just about any shape imaginable! Unless this trait is stacked with cheek shape - mismatched, both cheek pouches should be mirrored shapes.

Cheek Shape - Mismatched (Gourmet)

Category: Cheek Pouches

Soosh with mismatched cheek shapes have one shape on one cheek, and another shape on the other. This trait MUST be stacked with cheek shape - shaped, however, only one is necessary for both cheek pouches (for example, if you wanted to do one heart and star, you would not need one shaped cheek pouch trait for each shape--just the one is sufficient!).
