Hi! My name is Emmy Lou and I am a 4 year old, 57 lb, spayed female Shepherd. I am already housebroken. I love my crate and would like to have one in my home, although I am a lady who does not need to be crated when left alone.
I am very shy with new people and will take a while to warm up to my people. I am good with men and women, though I will need a home without young children. Once I do warm up, I am very loving. I enjoy sitting on my foster mom's lap while she pets me. Since I am shy, a quieter home with few visitors would be ideal.
I love other dogs of all sizes and will need a confident doggy sibling in my furever home. A dog my size who likes to play would be great! I enjoy running around the backyard, so I need a physical fence around my yard. My favorite toy is my teddy bear, who I keep in my crate to chew on. I have also done well around cats.
I am still learning leash skills, though I have learned how to sit! My favorite treat is cheese. I am still learning how to share food with the other dogs. I ride very well in the car.
I am looking for an experienced family who will continue my training and socialization. I know with the right people I can blossom to show my full potential. 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 $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!
