Posted Breed: White German Shepherd. COURTESY LISTING - NOT AN ECHO FOSTER DOG! I am a gorgeous 4 year old, 60 lb female white shepherd. I have a condition known as Mega-E, which means my esophagus doesn't function properly. I have to rely on gravity to pull my food down to my stomach. But don’t fear, I have a special Bailey Chair that makes that happen for me and my chair will go with me to my new home! I also have some environmental allergies, but that is easily controlled with my medicine. I am housebroken and crate trained, but to be honest, I would really prefer a home where my family is home most of the time. I really, really love people!! I would do best in a home with children over 12 as younger kids can scare me when they get loud and move too fast. I would prefer to be the only dog in my home as other dogs sometimes intimidate me; unless you have a really laid back, calm dog and are willing to work with me on a slow integration. I am very smart and respond well to force-free/clicker training. I learn very quickly and am also very sensitive to voice cues. I am taking beginner agility classes and that is really fun for me. I walk really well on a leash and love a good game of fetch. I have so much love to share, can I share it with you?? For more information on Maddie: http://rehomingmegaesophagusdogs.com/maddie.htm This is a courtest listing and is NOT an Echo Dogs White Shepherd Rescue dog.

A.K.A. : A mongrel, mixed-breed dog
Overview: A mongrel, mutt, or mixed-breed dog, is a dog that is not the result of breeding within an existing breed or to modify or create a breed and belongs to no breed. In the United States, the term "mixed-breed" is a favored synonym over "mongrel" among many who wish to avoid negative connotations associated with the latter term. The implication that such dogs must be a mix of defined breeds may stem from an inverted understanding of the origins of dog breeds. Pure breeds have been, for the most part, artificially created from random-bred populations by human selective breeding with the purpose of enhancing desired physical, behavioral, or temperamental characteristics. Dogs that are not purebred are not necessarily a mix of such defined breeds. Therefore, among experts and fans of such dogs, "Mongrel" is still the preferred term.

More About Mutt Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: White German Shepherd. Please contact Echo Dogs (adoptions@echodogs.org) for more information about this pet. I am Leia, a 9 month old, 45 lb spayed female. I am crate-trained and am housebroken. Being that I’m still a young pup, I do need crated when left alone. I am a social butterfly who will happily greet men, women, young children, and other dogs. I love to play with dogs, though I like to steal toys from them and create a horde to sleep on myself. I am energetic and need a home where I’ll get plenty of exercise, though I’m also content to chew on my bone. I’m slow about eating my food, but love treats and should be easy to train. I like to go for car rides and don’t pull hard on the leash, so I’ll happily go along with my people anywhere you want to go. I love being with my people. Isn’t anyone looking for an active little girl to join their family? I’m looking for you! Follow me on Facebook: #EchoDogLeia For more information, please contact Adoptions.

      Posted Breed: White German Shepherd. Please contact Echo Dogs (adoptions@echodogs.org) for more information about this pet. Hi there! I’m Asher, a 2.5 year old, 70 lb, neutered male. I am housebroken and crate-trained. I create my own fun when left alone, so I need to be crated. I love receiving attention from and playing with my people. I even like to play fetch! I like car rides and would love to go places with you… I only pull slightly on the leash and will improve with continued training. I would love a confident, active doggie sibling to rumble and play with at home! Having a more confident dog to take cues from will help boost my confidence in new situations. I am a bit shy around new people, but will warm up once I get to sniff them. I’ll need a confident leader to help show me new people aren’t scary. I can be a bit clumsy and trip sometimes, but I don’t let it dampen my spirit. I am very food motivated and eager to please, so continuing my training will be a breeze. I’m just a young, energetic boy who needs a family to share all my love with furever. Are you my furever family? Follow me on Facebook: #EchoDogAsher For more information, please contact Adoptions.

      Posted Breed: White German Shepherd. Please contact Echo Dogs (adoptions@echodogs.org) for more information about this pet. My name is Hanna and I am a 5 year old, 65 lb, spayed female. I am already housebroken and crate-trained, though I am such a lady I really don’t need a crate when left alone. I love my people, male or female, and will actively seek affection and cuddles, though I don’t like being picked up. I’d prefer to have no young children in my furever home. I’m willing to go anywhere you want to go, though I’m also content staying home and cuddling on the couch! I get along well with easy-going male dogs, but I like to have the men all to myself and would like no other female dogs. I am rather low energy, although I still like my toys and will have spurts of playful energy! I don’t like to share my toys or food with other dogs though. I have an autoimmune disorder called pemphigus; it’s treated with diet and low dose steroids. My pemphigus doesn’t affect my enthusiasm at all though, I will definitely let you know when I get hungry. I am a very happy girl who wants people of my very own to show all my love.

      Posted Breed: White German Shepherd. Please contact Echo Dogs (adoptions@echodogs.org) for more information about this pet. Wendy is an 11 month old female and weighing 40 pounds. She is now housebroken and does not use a crate. She is well-behaved in the house and does not chew anything other than her toys. Wendy needs a physical fence (no electric fence) so she can run and play in the yard with another dog, one of her favorite activities! Wendy loves all people, young and old, other dogs and is just a very happy and playful girl. She is simply adorable! Wendy has been diagnosed with a neurological disease called Cerebellar Hypoplasia. It is a condition in which parts of the cerebellum have not completely developed. This means her gait is off and she looks like a Tennessee Walker with the high stepping of her front legs. There is no cure for this disease nor will it progress any further. She can live a normal life as a family pet but not as a jogging partner. Wendy needs a single level home with no more than 2-3 steps in her home. Her unconditional love will warm your heart! Are you the right family for Wendy?

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: White German Shepherd. COURTESY LISTING - NOT AN ECHO FOSTER DOG! About Malcolm Status: Available for Adoption (adoption info) Adoption Fee: $175 Species: Dog Color: white Current Size: 45 Pounds Current Age: 4 Years 9 Months (best estimate) Housetrained: Yes 12/5/16 Help Mal find a home for the holidays! Mal is a such a sweet loyal loving and obedient boy and it's a shame he's still in foster care. Unfortunately he's nervous around new people and dominant with other dogs, so we can't take him to adoption events. We have learned a process for meeting new people that helps him make human friends in about 15 minutes, and he ignores the outside cats and gets along with the submissive dog here. Mal would do best in a quiet home with patient dog experienced people who will keep working on his sicial skills, especially a family who wants a protective dog. 11/14/15: Mal is such a well-behaved boy that the other day when I accidentally left a package of hot dogs on the kitchen table, it was still there when I got home from work. I don't think we've ever had another dog who wouldn't have eaten them when they were sitting out for 6 hours! 9/26/15: Mal is now doing great with the other dogs and cats in his foster home and he's also doing better meeting new people, although he's still nervous at first. Mal remains a sweetheart with his family, loyal, obedient, affectionate, and well-behaved. 3/28/15: Malcom (Mal) will be a wonderful dog for the right person, well-behaved, companionable, and very loyal. He is neutered, up to date on shots, crate trained, and housetrained. He is quiet, doesn't chew, and walks well on a leash, and takes treats extremely gently. Mal loves his toys and will carefully pick them up and show them proudly to us to admire when we come into the room, and will immediately let go, if we ask to take it. Sometimes he carries a favorite outside with him, puts it carefully down while he moves off to do his business, then picks them up to bring back to the house. Mal would be great as an only dog, but his behavior with other animals remains unpredictable, in that every once in a while he gets excited and jumps onto and grabs another dog. It does not really seem aggressive, more dominant playful, but our other dogs are old and react badly when this happens, so we are keeping him separated from them here. He might be fine with a younger submissive dog who enjoys rough play, but would probably be better as an only pet. Mal is very bonded with me (a woman) and acts protective when meeting strangers inside our home, so he needs a careful introduction to new people. He does better if introduced to them in a neutral setting, and he has quickly become affectionate with other people once he has accpeted them as safe. Update 10/16/14: I just adore this dog! Mal is quiet and well-behaved, will sit and hug on command, and we are working on ball and shake. He wants nothing more than to be with us, but isn't clingy and does well when alone. Although interested in the cats, I think he'd be fine with a dog-savvy cat, and he's co-existing well now with our two large even tempered girl dogs as well as the crotchety senior little dog. 9/5/14 Update: Malchom(Mal) is one of those easy dogs- he's quiet, calm, well-behaved, affectionate, housebroken and crate trained. Although his mom looked like a spitz mix, Mal looks similar to a white German shepherd and like that breed is very loyal, a devoted companion who is very focused on obeying his person. He's finished his heartworm treatment and is now ready to resume normal activity and to find a new home! At the shelter Mal was attacked by another dog who bit his lip badly enough to need multiple stitches. Although he doesn't seem upset being around other dogs, he has on occasion lunged at or grabbed some dogs who came up too close to his face. This may be protective or possibly dominance, and although he hasn't injured anyone, it startles and upsets the other dogs (and us). Since Mal is more interested in people than other dogs, he'd be great as an only pet, but because he has a calm temperament in general and wants to please so badly, we do believe Mal can be retrained to feel safe with normal dog activity. 8/18/14 Update: Malcolm just arrived a southern shelter Aug. 16th. He is a super super sweet, gentle and quiet boy, who just wants to please. Malachi will be an extremely handsome boy once he's put on some weight, cleaned up, and had some good quality food to improve his coat. He was just treated for heartworm last week, so needs to rest for three more weeks before resuming normal activity, but could be adopted at the end of the month by someone willing to monitor him until that time. Notes from the shelter: This is Malachi…..who came in filthy and covered with fleas. I just don’t need to get started on that. These pics were taken before his bath, so next week, I’ll try to get pics of clean Malachi for you. He is a sweet boy, as you can see here. He had probably never had a bath in his life, but he was very good and SO enjoyed the gentle scrubbing to get the layers of dirt off his skin and no doubt itching from the fleas. He’s a gentle dog, and very pretty, and will be even prettier once his coat gets shiny and pretty from good nutrition and no fleas. He is HW positive. I think he is only about 2-3 years old and weighs 35 lbs.
