Strudel is the brains at Shelter 17. She is a dachschund who has a knack for inventing some pretty useful gadgets by Mr. Nut Nut She also is good with psychology, problem solving, and strategic planning. She is not originally from America, she speaks with an accent, and yells in a foreign language when she is angry. Her inventions are used frequently when finding a pup his/her perfect home, as well as on missions. Due to her lack of "opposable thumbs", she is usually assisted by a team of squirrels whom she happens to be very close to. She is voiced by Alanna Ubach. In season 2 she is bigger than Kugel from the Kennel Kittens.
