Hi there! My name is Somali and I am an approximately 3-year-old, 54 lb spayed female. I am already housetrained and crate-trained. I should be crated when left home alone—and I don’t mind at all, I’ll go right into my crate and nap while you’re away.
I have never met a stranger in my life! I love all people. I am too enthusiastic with my love for small children, and I am also still mastering my food manners, so any kids in my home should be older. I actively seek affection often and love any kind of scratches or snuggles. I love climbing on the couch to cuddle at the end of the day. I am eager to welcome visitors to our home once they come inside; I can be a little intimidated by strangers standing in doorways at times.
I adore other dogs and would love to have another playful dog in my home, although I would also do well by myself! I love toys, especially soft toys, and will chase them in the yard. I am still unreliable with bringing it back with me though. I cannot go to a home with cats.
I love going for car rides! I walk well on leash with a properly utilized prong collar and have been nonreactive to people and other dogs when out and about, making me a great adventure partner! I am working on my basic commands and learning quickly. I am an active girl who would love to find a home where I will receive plenty of physical and mental stimulation! I love to jump on top of crates and over the dutch door in my foster home, so I may have potential as an agility prospect. I am a happy, confident, loving girl who is ready to find my perfect adoptive family—is that 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!
