Find a pet to adopt
This is Echo. He's a sweet affectionate 1 1/2 yr old shepherd mix. Loves to be near people, but well behaved in a crate too. Slightly timid with new people, but very friendly and not at all food or toy aggressive. Great with kids and other dogs (large and small). He's quiet and mellow, but loves to run. Will need lots of space and probably do best with a fenced yard. He's good on a leash, but he's strong and would pull too much with a halter. Doesn't know basic commands yet, but will come when called and is easily redirectable when disciplining. Overall a great dog with a great personality!

In fact, there are even Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who
help with Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten
adopted in DeForest paves the way for another one to be saved.
