Hi there! I’m Avalanche: a 1 year old, 60 lb spayed female. I am already housebroken, though I’d do best in a home with a dog door. I am crate-trained. I am a lady though who does not need to be crated when left alone. I like to sleep in my crate at night and use it as a safe space. 

I do well with men and women after some time to warm up. Young kids can make me nervous, so no kids in my home. I am a Velcro Dog with my people and will follow you around everywhere—I love attention! Visitors can make me uncomfortable, so a quiet home would be ideal. 

I do well with other dogs my size or smaller and wouldn’t mind a calm canine sibling. I could do well as an only child too! I love playing fetch with my toys! I ignore cats, so I can live with your kitties! 

I walk well on the leash, ride well in the car, and know my basic commands—perfect to go out, right? I like walks and sunbathing on warm days.

I’m a happy, sweet girl who is ready to find an experienced owner who can help me reach my full potential and overcome my fears… could that be 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!
