Echo's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Echo's Story...
Echo is an approximately year and a half old Shar-pei and Akita mix (to our best guess). She is up to date on her vaccines, micro-chipped, spayed, and housetrained. She is very friendly and social with people and dogs in spite of her background.

Echo was surrendered to a Humane Society in South Carolina when her family "could not longer care for her." Previously she had lived her whole life outside on a chain and was bred at least two times that we know of for sure. When she came to the shelter with one of her puppies, she was emaciated and covered in fleas. She also tested heartworm positive. Unfortunately the puppy passed away in the shelter. :'(

Since Echo is only about a year and a half old, we just could not leave her there to die. Upon getting her here to Virginia Beach, we had her heartworm test re-done to verify the results, and both the in-house test and the sample sent out to a lab came back heartworm NEGATIVE!!!

So now this super sweet girl is available for adoption and looking for her forever home where she can live inside and get all the love she craves so desperately. She would do well in a home with the right male, as all she wants is to run and play or sleep on your lap!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Echo, a Virginia Beach Shar Pei/Akita dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shar Pei/Akita for sale in Virginia Beach, or seeking a Shar Pei/Akita dog from a breeder in Virginia Beach.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Virginia Beach already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Virginia Beach breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shar Pei/Akita breeders who help with Shar Pei/Akita rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Virginia Beach paves the way for another one to be saved.
