Hi there! My name is Tyrone and I am a 4-year-old, 83 lb neutered male. I am already housetrained and crate-trained. I should be crated when left home alone.
I am a sweet boy who is friendly with men, women, and older children. I can be mouthy when I’m playing which would likely be too much for small children. I will actively seek affection from my people and enjoy spending time with you! I love receiving scratches! I need a proper introduction to anyone visiting our home so that I know they’re allowed to be here.
I am good with other dogs and could do well with a playful sibling or two, or by myself. I will nip at other dogs to play and have a mouthy play style. I like my toys! I haven’t mastered fetch yet though. I cannot go to a home with cats.
I ride well in the car and walk fairly well on leash, though I can be leash reactive when we see another dog. I am a high energy boy who will thrive with a family dedicated to providing adequate exercise! I recently had a femoral head ostectomy on my left hip to relieve pain from a luxating hip joint—I am recovering well! It will be important for me to go for regular walks to keep up my range of motion and it will be particularly crucial that I am not allowed to become overweight. I am now a healthy, happy, and loveable boy ready to find my perfect family—are you my family?

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!
