Pet of the Week

Echo is looking for his forever home!

Echo is AMAZING! He is such a happy, awesome guy which is a testament to Echo considering his former life; let’s just say it’s a really good thing he is with us now! Echo came to us after a good samaritan interfered when they witnessed Echo being beaten outside of a restaurant. They rescued him from this abuser and brought him home. Because of them, Echo has a second chance at life; we intend on helping him find the family that is going to help him live it to the fullest!

Echo is outdoorsy and fun, kind and dog social, but above it all he loves humans. He wants a great new family who wants to take him out exploring. He would love to be in a home with a dog friend, or with a family who would be cool with some doggy playdates. Echo CAN’T be safe around cats (he has a prey drive), so his new home MUST be cat-free. He is house-trained, engaged during command training, upbeat and simply gorgeous. We adore him and know you will too. Whoever gets this guy is going to be so, so lucky.
