Hello! My name is Aoife and I am a 2-year-old, 60 lb spayed female. I am already housetrained and crate-trained. I am currently crated when left home alone, though I do well uncrated and allowed to roam the house overnight.
I can be cautious meeting new people, though I will warm up quickly when allowed to approach on my own. I am very affectionate with my people and will seek plenty of attention from you! Young children make me nervous, so I’d prefer a home with older kids (average 10-year-old and up). I will welcome visitors into our home.
I love other dogs and would thrive with a playful canine companion or two! I also enjoy my toys and will eagerly play fetch! I like to share my toys with other dogs and have not displayed resource guarding. I have also done well around cats and chickens!
I was originally a service dog prospect so I have received extensive training since I was a puppy, though my owner and trainer felt it best to wash me from service work due to my lack of confidence around new people. I am ready to just be a pet dog, with all the benefits of that extensive training! I walk well on leash, ride well in the car, and have plenty of impulse control. I would love to find a family dedicated to continuing my obedience work as I love my training sessions! I love to join for hikes, especially if they include swimming! I also settle well when we’re hanging out at home! I am a lovely, sweet, affectionate girl ready to find my perfect adoptive family—is that you?

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!
