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.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: White German Shepherd. Please contact Echo Dogs (adoptions@echodogs.org) for more information about this pet. Hi! My name is Dayna and I am a 2 year old, 53 lb spayed female. I am housebroken as long as I go out immediately in the morning. I am crate-trained, but have no separation anxiety and don’t need to be crated. I love everybody, male or female, but shouldn’t be in a home with children under 10 as I am too active for children. I love to play hard with other dogs and would love a canine sibling, as long as they’ll play with me. I love my toys and going for walks, though my leash skills are still a work in progress. I like to run and would do best in a yard with a high fence. I love affection and will crawl into your lap for petting. I’m okay with being touched all over, but I hate getting my nails done with clippers or a Dremel. I was an outside dog and am learning to love living in a house. Now I just need an active family to continue my training. Are you my perfect family? Follow me on Facebook: #EchoDogDayna 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.

      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. Could you be my people? Follow me on Facebook: #EchoDogHanna For more information, please contact Adoptions. Echo Dogs fosters dogs in many states.
