Hi there! My name is Turbo and I am a 2-year-old, 80 lb neutered male. I am already housebroken and crate-trained. I am still young, so I will need to be crated when left home alone. My crate offers me a safe space when I get frightened.
I am very skittish with new people, although I will warm up to both men and women in my family. Young kids are too much for me, so please no small kids in my home. Older kids who are quieter and respectful of my space are ok with me. With my family at home, I am very affectionate and will seek affection. I am very Velcro to my foster dad! I am reactive to visitors to my home and will not be friendly. My foster family is working with a trainer to help me improve, but it will continue to be a work in progress in my forever home.
I do well with other dogs and enjoy playing with my foster sister! Due to my fear issues, I will require a confident canine sibling in my forever home to help guide me to knowing it is okay. I have been around cats and have been way too rough with them and would likely injure a cat, so I cannot go to a home with cats. I like playing with my toys, especially squeaky toys!
My foster parents have been working with me to learn how to sit, down, stay, place, and walk on a leash. I am still very scared about leaving my home, so I am only working on neighborhood walks first for now. I am intelligent, food motivated, and eager to please my family—so I should do well with continued training and socialization with my forever 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 $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!
