Echo is a gorgeous 2 year-old Aussie mix with a bobtail who came to us from a rural county dog shelter after having been shot multiple times both in the face and torso. This sweet dog has no doubt had an awful time of it recently at the hands of a horrible person or people but he is now on the mend and ready to make a fresh start in a brand new home. All things considered, Echo was very lucky that the gunshot damage wasn’t more serious. The bullet fragments that hit him in the face fractured some teeth that had to be removed while those that entered his shoulder and hip areas didn’t hit any vital organs fortunately. Those wounds are now healing nicely. Echo still has some bullet fragments in his body but those are best left alone as it can produce more harm than good to try to remove them. Echo also had a mild case of pneumonia from which he has now recovered and is ready to find his permanent home. Echo is a very happy, friendly dog who gets along well with other dogs and has done well meeting new people too. He would do best in a mature home without young kids and would enjoy having a very active canine buddy who will run and play with him. Echo would also enjoy having a yard with an aboveground fence to allow him to play safely. This boy has a lot of energy and is very vocal if he isn’t able to get the exercise he needs everyday. Echo would not be a candidate for apartment, condo, or townhouse living. He has done well with his crate training in his foster home so should be able to master the house rules without too much trouble in his new home. He will eagerly sit for a treat and may know other commands that we haven’t discovered yet. Echo enjoys going for a walk and would make an excellent running or trail buddy for an active person or family. We can’t wait to see this wonderful dog living his best life with his new person or family. There are no cats in Echo’s foster home so we don’t know how he would be living with them. Echo weighs about 40 pounds and his adoption fee is $350. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Echo.
