Echo's Story...

Hi! My name is Echo! I am a senior adult dog with the heart of a puppy. I am about 8 years old, but have lots left in the tank. I am a constant companion, sweet, friendly, affectionate and full of cuddles and love. I am a housetrained, crate trained, very smart dog who is friendly with everyone. My foster mommy says I have heartworm, but my doctors are taking great care of me and I'm going to get all fixed up. But in the meantime, I need to find someone who wants to love me for life. I need a home to call my own. I get along great with kitties and other dogs too, especially the girls (what can I say? I'm a lady's man.) I am not loud like my foster sisters who are very talkative. I'm quieter and I just like to watch what is going on. I will talk to let you know I have to go outside though. My foster mom tells me that in my new home I will be warm and have a soft bed to sleep in. I do like to be outside and enjoy the fresh air, but I was left outside by my former owners and mommy says I had frostbite on my ears. It's all healed up now, but I don't want that again! Foster mom tells me I have character, lots of personality and that my big brown, soulful eyes melt her heart. I'm not sure what that means, but I do love having my ears scratched! Can I come get better with you? The Rescue will cover all of my heartworm treatment expenses and make sure I'm 100% healthy before my adoption is finalized, but I'd love to start bonding with my new people now. Please give me a home for the holidays! I'm a super great dog and you won't know what you ever did without me! Adoption fee: $75 and includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, heartworm treatment, neuter and microchip.


  • Sunday, February 17: Adoption Event at Lou's, 20779 Mack Ave, Grosse Pointe Woods, from 1-4 p.m. Paws for Life will have adoptable dogs, puppies, cats and kittens at Lou's in Grosse Pointe Woods. Shop for pet supplies and meet some cute and furry homeless pets for adoption. Also, meet the infamous Franky, the shop's resident 40-pound sulcata tortoise.

NOTE ABOUT BREED LABELING: Visual breed identification of dogs is unreliable and usually inaccurate. So, for most of our adoptable dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Why is labeling a dog such a big deal? A label will stick with a dog for the rest of its life. A label can mean discrimination, losing its home or even death. Labels are a problem for the dogs when we, as the local experts on animals, allow adopters, politicians and community members to think that the label we assign can predict who that dog is or will be.


Adoption Process:
Complete the application at the link above or send an email to to tell us which pet you're interested in and we'll send you a questionnaire that will help us make the best match for you and your new pet. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Echo, a Troy Husky/Alaskan Malamute dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Husky/Alaskan Malamute for sale in Troy, or seeking a Husky/Alaskan Malamute dog from a breeder in Troy.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Troy 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 Troy 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 Husky/Alaskan Malamute breeders who help with Husky/Alaskan Malamute rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Troy paves the way for another one to be saved.
