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??

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.
Breed Group: Unspecified
Country of Origin: Unknown

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. My name is Marigold. I am a 5 year old, 65 lb spayed female who is already housebroken. I am a low energy girl and would prefer to snuggle with my humans all day rather than be out and about. I am a champion snuggler on the bed. Other doggie siblings are fine by me, but I am a little shy around new dogs. I possess a strong prey drive, so a home without cats is a must for this pretty girl. I am what people call a “Velcro” dog who just wants to hang around her people. I will seek out affection from all humans; men, women, and even younger children! If you leave me, I am very intelligent and may figure out how any barriers separating us work. I live happily with Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency, or EPI. This means I cannot digest food properly; however, EPI is easily managed by adding enzymes and a few supplements to my food! I also have some incontinence, but this is also easily managed with some Proin tablets. Are you looking for an affectionate, low energy addition to your family? If so, I’m your girl! Follow me on Facebook: #EchoDogMarigold For more information, please contact Adoptions. Echo Dogs fosters dogs in many states. Visit Echo Dogs White Shepherd Rescue to see more of our dogs. Transportation for the adopted dog IS available. Remember, we are an all-volunteer foster rescue organization - we DO NOT have a physical shelter to visit. Our minimum adoption donation is $300. All dogs are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations and micro-chipped. Puppies under 6 months old may not be spayed/neutered. This would be the responsibility of the adopter at their own expense. Proof of spay/neuter will be required! To complete an online application: Click here.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Sherman, IL
      Posted Breed: White German Shepherd. COURTESY LISTING - NOT AN ECHO FOSTER DOG! Seymour is a beautiful 2 year old, White German Shepherd Dog and he is available for adoption through Second Chance Animal Rescue. Seymour had a rough start to life as he was adopted off Craigslist at 5 months old with no previous vet care, a belly full of worms, malnourished and with mange. He’s come a long way in the year and a half, has grown into a beautiful and healthy, smaller (65 lbs.) GSD and is now looking for his perfect family. Seymour has a great, friendly personality and loves people, but he still has his puppy energy and could use some work on his greetings. Because of his age and temperament, he should not be in a home with small children. He would do better with adults and children over the age of 12. Seymour has a high prey drive and is very reactive with other dogs. He currently lives with 2 cats and an 8 year old Golden Retriever, but he chases the cats and tries to dominate the golden. He did respond to training for his reactivity, so a strong handler should be able to work with him to where it is not as much of a problem. He will need clear, consistent boundaries and leadership. He will not be a dog park dog, but would be a great addition to a younger adult household who is willing to spend the time to work with him to build his confidence and give him the exercise he needs to ensure he doesn’t get bored. Training and a fenced yard will be essential. He can’t quite be trusted not to counter surf or get into the trash when left alone, so would need to be crated when unsupervised, but he loves his kennel and is fine to stay in there as needed. Seymour is crate trained, housebroken, UTD on his shots, microchipped, has received 8 training lessons at Off-Leash K9 and knows basic obedience. He comes with his crate, his elevated food and water bowls, and his e-collar and leashes. Off-Leash K9 has generously offered a refresher starter lesson for his new family upon adoption. We are also waiving his adoption fee and are instead suggesting a donation to the rescue in any amount on his behalf. Seymour is a typical GSD teenager who requires an experienced owner to work with him to develop his confidence and give him the structure he needs. His potential shines through the minute you meet him and he will make a wonderful addition to the right family. We are taking applications from families with a fenced yard and no other animals or small children. Previous GSD experience is preferred. Please contact kristen@secondchanceanimalrescueva.org for more information on this handsome guy! This is a courtest listing and is NOT an Echo Dogs White Shepherd Rescue dog.

I am a very manly, 4-year old, 75 lb, housebroken, neutered male Shepherd. I will need to be crated when I’m alone until I get settled in, but don’t worry—I crate beautifully! I would really like an active, outdoorsy family that will include me in their adventures! I love car rides, so the ride there won’t be a problem at all. I wouldn’t mind having a canine sibling who will help me protect my humans from the mail lady. I also have a strong prey drive and will protect you from small critters roaming in our backyard. I would like a home with no cats! I enjoy playing with toys; I’ll even play fetch! I am a typical German Shredder and need tough toys. We have found nylabones and antlers strong enough to withstand my teeth. I am much too dignified to admit it, but I am a bit clumsy around small children and will knock them over, so no youngsters I am a healthy boy and just need my very own active furever family.

      Posted Breed: White German Shepherd. Please contact Echo Dogs (adoptions@echodogs.org) for more information about this pet. My name is Wesley and I am a low energy, 6 year old, neutered male weighing 82 lbs. I am housebroken and crate trained. I have good house manners and do not get on any furniture. I am progressing well with my leash training and do well on a long lead outside. I am a very loving dog and actively seek affection from my people. I will welcome visitors to my home once you let them in and introduce them to me. I am good with men and women, but have not met any children. I like other dogs when I am properly introduced and would really like to have a canine sibling in my new home. I have not met any cats so I don’t know if I would like them. I love my treats but am not particularly interested in toys. I do enjoy my nylabones though! I like to ride in cars and go on road trips, especially if water is involved, but I get anxious if left in a car alone. I really love to be with my people as much as possible, so I would love a home where someone is home most of the time. At night I like to sleep in a hallway where I can keep an eye on things. I consider it my job to alert my family to anything odd happening outside. Loud noises, such as thunderstorms, do not bother me. I want a family that I can spend long relaxing days with, share my endless love, and keep safe for the rest of my life. Are you the right family for me?

I am already housebroken and crate-trained. I like all people of any age and will happily welcome visitors into my home. Once you get to know me you will see I am just a very sweet, intelligent, and well-adjusted boy. In fact, I am so smart that I will let my family know when I need to go outside or that it is mealtime by sitting in front of them, putting my paws up on their legs and giving them that shepherd stare! I enjoy going for daily walks to explore the neighborhood and am making good progress with my leash skills. I also like to go for car rides and am a great co-pilot, especially if we are headed to Starbucks for a puppy latte! I love being outside so a fenced yard is a must for me. I do like playing with other dogs my size, but I have a very strong prey drive so no cats or small dogs under 30 lbs. I promise to make it my job to keep your yard completely rodent-free!

      Age: Young
      Location: Sherman, IL
      Posted Breed: White German Shepherd / Mixed. Please contact Echo Dogs (adoptions@echodogs.org) for more information about this pet. Meet Logan; a young, energetic 45-lb, neutered male born in October 2015. He is both housebroken and crate trained. Logan walks well on a leash, but needs to have a fenced yard so he can run and play freely. Logan’s parents lived in a salvage yard and that is where he was born. Sadly, his puppyhood was not in a home with a family so he was not socialized with people until coming into foster. He is very shy and fearful of new people so he would do best with kids over 10 years. Logan will need a family who has the time and patience to continue working on his socialization and help him to overcome his insecurities. Once you get to know Logan, you will see how sweet and affectionate he can be. Logan loves playing with other dogs and will need to have at least one, if not more, canine siblings to set an example and help him continue to build up his confidence. Logan had a rough start in life, but he is ready to blossom with the love and encouragement from the right family. Could it be yours?

I am housebroken and have perfect house manners so I do not need a crate. But a couch would be nice! I like both men and women, but have not been around young children. Being a senior, I would not be a good playmate for kids. I do get very attached to my humans and some might even call me Velcro dog. I love being outside in the fresh air and enjoy playing fetch with my tennis balls. A fence would be nice as I still like to chase those pesky squirrels and bunnies! And I will chase cats too. I walk well on a leash, right by your side, and get excited when it is time to go on my daily walks. I am a good boy in public and other people often admire how handsome I am! I am a bit finicky when it comes to other dogs. I do not like small dogs or other males. Submissive females are generally ok. A home where I am the center of attention and affection would be best! I do have some arthritis that is well managed with medication, but would still prefer a home with few stairs. I dream of a family that will snuggle on the couch with me to watch our favorite programs. Could it be yours? Follow me on Facebook: #EchoDogGus For more information, please contact Adoptions.

Please contact Echo Dogs (adoptions@echodogs.org) for more information about this pet.My name is Eiffel and I am a handsome, 6 year old neutered male weighing 74 lbs. I lived outside in my previous life so I have so many new things to learn as I adjust to living inside. I am now crate-trained but still working on housebreaking, but I am just about there if you keep me on a schedule. I’ve decided I really like living inside and sometimes I need encouragement to go outside to potty in nasty weather! You know what else I have newly discovered? TOYS! I love balls, nylabones, antlers, pretty much all toys of any kind. Although I must admit, I can destroy those stuffed toys in no time flat! Walking on a leash is also new to me, but I am making progress. It has been tough to work on my leash skills much with the super cold weather lately. I would really like a fenced yard to run around in. I like other dogs and would love to have a canine sibling. I am somewhat protective over my new toys, but I am learning to share and that I will now always have toys to play with! YEAH! I am a very affectionate boy. I welcome new people into my home and love to crawl up on the couch for a good snuggle.
