The first thing you might notice about Echo is her eyes. She has a way of looking intensely at you, trying to figure you out, asking you to figure her out. You can't help but melt a little when she looks at you that way.

Echo was rescued from a hoarding situation in Selma, TX, so her previous experiences are a bit unique. She gets pretty freaked out when left alone in a crate, and she doesn't really know how to play. Toys are a mystery to her, and she doesn't know how to react when other dogs try to play with her. But she's very smart, polite, and extremely affectionate. She is happy to be out of her previous situation, and she lets you know it with lots of cuddles, kisses and looks of love. Even though she doesn't understand a lot about domestic life, she is very curious about everything. She can be a little puppy-ish in that way.

The ideal home for Echo would be a quieter place, where someone could be home most of the time. But she is coming out of her shell more every day, and could probably adjust to most environments and routines if they are consistent. She walks well on a leash, learned sit, and is comfortable with all kinds of people, including kids. She is a bit intimidated by more exuberant dogs, though she is starting to loosen up a bit. She'd probably love to have a lower-key doggie companion who could help show her the ropes. We have not observed her around cats. She does have some medical issues that are being treated; we will be happy to give you the details

We think there are lots of hidden depths to Echo she can show you if given time. But the one thing she is never shy about is showing you her love and trust. She is a project well worth taking on. Come meet her!
