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. Hello! My name is Trailer and I am a 2 year old, 52 lb, neutered male. I'm housebroken and crate-trained. I will need to be crated when I am left home alone. I am an affectionate boy and love both men and women. I am a Momma's Boy, so I would prefer a home with a woman I can look up to for guidance. I can become overwhelmed around children and would prefer a home without any little ones. I adore snuggling on the couch and settling in for a movie marathon. I am comfortable at home and will happily welcome any visitors we may have! Have another social dog? I'd love a playmate! I take social cues from other dogs well, and having another dog can help boost my confidence, too. Just as little humans can overwhelm me, so can little dogs, so my siblings should be my size or larger. I do well with dog-savvy cats! I know my basic commands and enjoy learning. I take treats gently. I walk well on a leash when using my Easy Walk Harness. I enjoy joining you for walks or runs, so I could be a great jogging partner! I also ride well in the car. I am a loyal, smart boy waiting for my furever family to find me. I have a goofy grin that is sure to win over the right family! Could you possibly be my family?

I am very smart and have already learned sit, look, and off. I am currently working to build a reliable recall. My leash skills are a work in progress. I'd like a family who will continue my training. My foster family tells me I could be a great agility dog. I am an energetic, loving girl who'd love an active family of my very own.
