Hi! My name is Alpha and I am a 2-year-old, 105 lb neutered male. I am already housetrained and crate-trained, although I am a gentleman who does not need to be crated.
I am a social boy who does well with both men and women. I don’t know my own size and will jump up on people when I am excited, so any children in my home need to be old enough that I won’t accidentally hurt them. I will actively seek affection and love cuddling with my foster mom in bed.
I do well with other dogs of both sexes and would do well with a playmate! I like my toys also, although I haven’t gotten the hang of fetch yet. I am tall and can easily reach food left on the counters, which I feel makes it fair game so my foster mom keeps things out of reach. I have a prey drive towards small animals so I cannot go to a home with cats.
I walk fairly well on the leash—unless I see a squirrel!—and go running with my foster mom each day. I am high energy and require daily exercise, and would love someone to work on my training skills too! Could you be my family?

Echo Dogs fosters dogs in many states east of the Mississippi. Visit our Newcomers 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!
