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. Hi there! My name is Steele and I am a 5 year old, 65 lb, neutered male. I am housebroken and will speak up when I need to go out. I don't like my crate, though I don't need crated when left alone so it's not a problem! I love every person I meet of either sex, although I would prefer a home without young children. I actively seek affection from people and love to give hugs. I enjoy snuggling in the bed at night. I love to play with other dogs and would love to have a doggy sibling; although I'd also be fine as an only dog as I am confident all on my own. I discovered toys are awesome! I love shredding stuffed toys and chewing on my Kong toys. I walk well with a harness while on leash and will go anywhere with my people. I have a strong prey drive, so no cats in my furever home. I am just a handsome boy who needs a home of my very own where I can spread all the love I have to give. Am I meant to spend my life with you?

I am housebroken. I'm also already crate-trained, and will need crated when I am left home alone. I see out affection from both men and women, though I am more comfortable with women.

I love to wrestle with my foster sister. I enjoy playing with my toys and will often hoard them. I also like playing tug with other dogs. I don't have any guarding issues with toys or food.

      Posted Breed: White German Shepherd. Please contact Echo Dogs (adoptions@echodogs.org) for more information about this pet. Hi there! My name is Gibbs. I am a 1 year old, 64 lb, neutered male. I am housebroken, though am still figuring out how to give a cue. I am crate-trained and am still young, so I need to be crated when left alone. I love receiving affection from men and women, though would prefer a home without young children as I might knock them over in play. I will happily greet any visitors to our home! I absolutely love playing with other dogs and need another playful pup in my home. A home with a fenced yard for me to run in would be ideal. I love my toys and enjoy shredding the stuffy toys. I am an energetic boy and would like an active family who will take me on their adventures. I like going for car rides and only pull slightly on my leash. I'd love a family who would continue my training! I'm just a cuddly, active boy who needs a family of my own to snuggle in bed at night. Could you possibly be my family?

      Posted Breed: White German Shepherd. Please contact Echo Dogs (adoptions@echodogs.org) for more information about this pet. Hi! My name is Sadie and I am a 6 year old, 83 lb, spayed female. I am already housebroken and can be trusted alone in the house without any problems. I am a happy-natured, affectionate girl who loves attention from men, women, and young children. I will also welcome any visitors to our home. I do well with other dogs and wouldn't mind a doggy sibling in my home. I enjoy playing with my toys, and don't mind sharing my toys! I enjoy spending some time outdoors, so a fenced yard would be nice. I like riding in cars and wouldn't mind going with you to run errands. I am food motivated and may snatch an extra meal should the opportunity arise. I am quiet and will rarely "talk" to you. I came to Echo Dogs with my puppy, who has since found her own home. Now it is my turn! Are you looking for a happy, calm, well-behaved girl to join your family? Maybe I could be the perfect pup you've been looking to add to your family?
