Hi! My name is Harvey and I am a 3-year-old, 75 lb neutered male. I am already housetrained and crate-trained. As long as I am getting enough exercise, I do not need to be crated when left home alone.

I have done well with both men and women after controlled, proper introductions. I would do best in an adult-only home. I tend to bond strongly with my caretakers so everyone should be involved in my care. I actively seek affection from my family and enjoy pets! I do well with visitors if I am put on ‘place’ when they arrive and am introduced with treats.

I am selective with my dog friends without definitive parameters, so I should either be an only dog or my adopter needs to be willing to bring any potential canine siblings to Gainesville, FL for us to meet before I move in. I enjoy having a fenced yard where I can run around and explore safely—or play a game of fetch with you! My favorite toys are plush toys or stuffed Kongs. I cannot go to a home with cats as I have a strong prey drive.

I spent several weeks with a professional trainer to help prepare me to be the best companion I can be. I learned sit, down, come, drop it, and place. I also learned heel so that I can walk well on leash, though I will sometimes still bark and jump when passing other people in novel situations. I ride well in the car and am happy to tag along for rides! My foster mom often takes me bikejoring and I have learned all the mushing commands (mush, gee, haw, on by, and whoa). I would love the opportunity to continue bikejoring or at least running/jogging with my new family!! I am a high energy boy and do best when being provided with ample mental and physical stimulation. I am working hard to get ready for my adoptive family and I am ready to start looking—are you who I’m searching for?

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!
