Hi there! My name is Dixon and I am an 18-month-old, 65 lb neutered male. I am already housetrained and crate-trained. I am currently crated when left home alone at my foster home and do well.

I have done well with men, women, and older children. I love affection and spending time with my humans, though I am also not pushy about it and am happy to relax if you have work to do! I am usually a tail-wagging excited boy when we have visitors, though I can occasionally be fearful when first meeting men (especially if on leash) before warming up.

I have done well with other dogs after slow, proper introductions and time to get to know each other. I can be confident and pushy about initiating play at times so some dogs may not appreciate enthusiasm, though I’d love an active playmate. I love toys such as tug ropes! I haven’t quite figured out this “fetch” game though. I cannot go to a home with cats.

I am intelligent and having been working hard to learn about being the best adventure partner! I like tagging along for car rides and am improving on my leash skills; I currently wear and EasyWalk harness to help on walks! I have learned sit, off, and am working on stay and come. I would thrive with a family willing to continue my training and providing that mental stimulation! I am an active boy who could be a great hiking or running partner. I am ready to search for my perfective adoptive family—could that be with 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 $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!
