Bowtie Flyer 3-5-24

Hello! My name is Bowtie and I am a 6-year-old, 53 lb neutered male. I am already housetrained and crate-trained. I should be crated when left home alone to help me feel secure.

I have done well with men, women, and young children with proper introductions. I can be nervous at first and may bark for a few minutes before warming up to new people; I generally warm up to women quicker than I do men though I love my foster dad! I will actively seek affection from my humans (especially the butt scratches!) and love being around my people. I am happiest when feeling like I am one of the family.

While I am very friendly with other dogs, I exhibit anxious pacing and whining around other dogs that often frays their nerves and ends with them being reactive to me so I will need to be the only dog in my home. I am much calmer when by myself so I won’t mind! I haven’t shown much interest in toys though I will catch a ball if you toss it. I have been around cats and done well.

I tolerate car rides and only pull slightly on leash. I have joined my foster family for a couple adventures like our trip to the lake and have done well! I have learned sit, leave it, and to crate on command. I take fluoxetine daily to help me manage my anxiety and will need a family willing to continue my medication while pairing it with training to help me learn life isn’t so stressful. I have been working hard to be the best dog I can be and am ready to find my perfect adoptive family. Are you 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 $350. 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!
