Hello! My name is Boston and I am a 5-year-old, 75 lb neutered male. I am already housetrained and crate-trained. I understand going into my crate on cue and am not pushy when coming out. I sleep in my crate at night and am crated when home alone at my foster home for my safety.
I am a social, happy boy! I am always eager to meet new people including men, women, and children. I have been particularly gentle when meeting young children in the neighborhood, although I may have too much rambunctious energy inside for small children who aren’t dog-savvy. I am a Velcro Dog who is always near my foster mom. I adore any kind of affection from humans and will soak it all up in the form of cuddles! I will welcome visitors into our home.
I have done well with other dogs and wouldn’t mind having a canine sibling, although I play rough. I love my toys and absolutely love to play fetch!! I would love to have yard space where I can hang outside with you, explore safely, and play outdoors with you. I will tear apart stuffy toys so need supervised with soft toys. I love Kong toys! I cannot go to a home with cats.
I have been doing well with leash training and I ride well in the car—making me the perfect adventure partner! I have learned to sit when being leashed up and am nonreactive to other people and/or dogs we see on walks. I am working on my basic commands and thrive in a structured environment, so I would flourish in a home willing to continue my training! I do have some arthritis in my hind left leg that is managed with daily joint supplements, it doesn’t slow me down! I am a happy, energetic, curious, and intelligent boy who is ready for the perfect adoptive family—is that yours?

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!
