Echo is a 6-year-old Black and Tan Coonhound who is well-mannered, cuddly, intelligent, and playful. He is family-friendly and gets along well with humans taller than 48”, and does well with other large dogs; however, he needs to be closely supervised when with smaller dogs because of his rambunctious play. He has learned that cats are not toys, and, for the most part, he is just curious to see how they smell. With his distinctive, deep-bass baying and barking, he is a vigilant watchdog, letting you know that a stranger is in the area, but if the stranger entered your home uninvited, he would likely be greeted with Echo’s slurpy kisses. Echo is very athletic and very energetic. He can jump very high from a standstill so we recommend a 6' fence or supervision while he is on a tie out. Echo is not off-leash trained and is great at finding ways to escape. When he does manage to get away, he usually comes back on his own but has given his foster parents a few heart attacks. Echo has a keen sense of smell, and has a natural instinct to follow interesting scents, which can sometimes lead him into trouble. We recommend that Echo be crated when you are gone for longer than a few minutes as he is a very intelligent, curious boy who will find something novel to chew on. He's also more than willing to help clean up the dinner leftovers, even those that were placed on the counter. Echo knows basic commands, but doing them needs to be in his best interest. Luckily, he is easily bribed with treats. Echo has unsuccessfully tried hunting, but, unfortunately, he is gun shy. Echo is housebroken and crate trained.
