Sushi dogs are fictional, fairy-like fantasy species based off of cuisine from around the globe. You can learn more about them and their world on this website!
what makes them different from regular dogs?
Although soosh indeed resemble real dogs, please check out the anatomy pages for specific anatomical differences!
How do I obtain one? Can I make my own?
Sushi dogs are a closed species, meaning that the creation of official sushi dogs is limited by the species owner. Sushi dogs/cats are usually available through either auctions, flatsales, or as customs. If you'd like to make your own soosh, please see "How can I get a MYO?" for more information.
So what's stopping me from making my own food dog anyway?
Sushi dogs are closed species, which means that the combination of their specific appearance, world and community is exclusive and limited by the species owner. Only official sushi dogs are allowed into the community, whether they be made by the species owner, approved guest artists, or with valid "make-your-own" slots. However, the group, in no way, shape, or form, claims ownership over the idea of a canid creature mixed with the theme of foods/drinks. Rather, the group claims ownership only over the very specific world, lore, and style that sushi dogs are presented in.
Therefore, the group respectfully asks that people honor their work put into the species/community, and to try to obtain a sushi dog through legitimate means instead of making their own!
Can my species be affiliated with sushi dogs?
We are not currently accepting affiliation requests with other deviantart groups. Sorry!
Make-Your-Own & Custom Soosh
How can I get a MYO?
Once a month, the sooshapon machine is restocked with MYO slots for a limited amount of time! You can purchase one here for $35 or 3500 deviantart points. The machine might drop a bonus prize too!
MYO slots are sometimes also given out as contest prizes. Keep an eye out on the group for event information!
What if I don't want an unused MYO slot anymore?
You're free to trade or gift unused MYO slots, as long as you notify the mods on the database. If you purchased your slot, you're also free to resell it for the price you purchased it at.
Can I commission someone to design my MYO for me?
Yes! Just let us know who designed it when you submit it for approval so we can credit the artist properly.
What foods and traits can I use for my MYO?
Please see our MYO guide (coming soon!) for general information on what is and isn't allowed for MYOs. For more specific questions (a la "Is *this* food ok?") just message us in the group or discord!
CAN I GET A CUSTOM SOOSH FROM CHITAL or a guest artist?
If you want to commission a custom soosh from Chital, look out for an announcement in the group. Unless they have permission to sell customs through the group, guest artists can only sell custom soosh designs to be used for existing MYO slots.
Can I sell my own soosh designs?
You can sell premade or custom soosh to MYO slot holders only. You may not sell MYO soosh customs via auction. Please be clear that you are selling a design, and not an official sushi dog.
If you'd like to sell official sushi dogs as a guest artist, please see our guest artist FAQ below.
What is a guest artist?
A guest artist (or GA, for short) is an artist who's been approved to design their own soosh for the group. GAs take part in regular sales and events through the group.
Can I be a guest artist?

Can guest artists design their own personal soosh?
Guest artists are held to the same standards as everyone else when it comes to obtaining sushi dogs. If a GA wants to keep a soosh they've designed, they'll need a valid MYO slot to make it official.
Can guest artists host soosh sales or giveaways by themselves?
Guest soosh sales and giveaways can ONLY be hosted by Chital herself. This is to help protect buyers from being scammed by people claiming to be guest artists.
