Facts about Echo

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