This bi-eyed beauty is a stunner for sure! Echo was adopted out to a home, but
was returned when the adopter called stating issues. Sadly, this was hardly a home
enviroment for Echo..... She had a 10x10 spot in the foyer, and was kenneled most
of the day, if they adopters husband or other animals were home and in the house.
Echo also had her own small section of the yard. This, paired with Echo not being
worked with sent her back to square one, after so many volunteers worked to get her
to where she was. Echo has possession issues, mainly her crate and her toys. She will
growl and bark at volunteers when they attempt to enter her run, but after they are
in with her all she wants is a walk and to give a kiss. Echo is a great dog, however
she does have a bite history. There have been no bites recorded with any of the current
volunteers who work with her. Echo also has food possession, and this is a 'quirk'
that is most likely going to need to be respected, and likely unbreakable. Echo also
may have minor neck sensitivties when first meeting new people, however once she warms
up to you and gains a mutual trust, that issue seems to go away. Echo needs to go
into a home that will be willing to work with her, and train her to be the best that
she can be. Echo hasn't been around small children, so it is likely best that
she do not go to a home with small children.
This dog requires an adopter to come out to the rescue three times in order to build up trust and form a bond with this dog before going home. Please talk to your adoption coordinator regarding the behaviors we have been working with this particular dog and the training techniques we have seen improvement with. We will also need the name and number of the trainer you plan on using before they will go home.
