  • Echo Dogs Adoption area is the eastern half of the U.S. We do not operate on the west coast.

  • I am 21 years or older​

  • Everyone in my home is in agreement to adopt a dog

  • I understand shepherds have a double coat, shed significantly, and can grow large (55 to 100+ lbs)

  • My vet can verify all current animals are up-to-date on routine vetting, including annual heartworm testing & monthly prevention

  • I agree to a home visit as part of the application process

  • If I rent my home, I will need to submit a signed Landlord Agreement granting permission to adopt from Echo Dogs and my application will NOT be processed until the signed landlord form is received.
