Spayed or Neutered,
Echo is a 1-year-old purebred Great Pyrenees and he is fully grown weighing about 70 lbs. Echo was rescued along with his 5 siblings from Augusta, Georgia. Upon arrival, the entire litter was covered head to toe in mange and fleas. They had zero human contact prior to Home for Good and needed lots of TLC to come out of their shells. Echo unfortunately also had suffered from double entropion (when the eyelashes inadvertently grow into the eyeball) and has since received corrective surgery. Echo recovered beautifully from his surgery and with the proper nutrition and environment has grown his white luxurious coat back. Echo is now ready to find the forever home he so truly deserves.
“Hi everyone, my name is Echo and I would like to tell you a few things about me... I have the cutest face ever but I am really shy when meeting new humans. I would love and need a family that will be patient and understanding with me because I am still learning that people aren’t so bad. I would prefer a home that is quiet and calm, loud noises tend to frighten me simply because I have never experienced such things in my entire life.
I am most comfortable when I am in the company of other dogs, especially ones that love to play. At this time, my true personality only shines when I am with my foster siblings and for that reason, I *must* go to a forever home with another dog or multiple present.
In my foster home, I have come to love chewing on deer antlers and Kongs filled with peanut butter. What a luxury! I also love to watch my canine friends play with toys, though, I have not quite gotten the hang of how to play with them yet.
I walk pretty well on a leash for as nervous as I am, but when I get spooked I try to dart and get away, but, after I am reassured everything is okay I’m ready to continue my stride. Oh, one more thing before I go, I also wouldn’t mind living with a kitty friend as well. I am simply looking for an experienced owner who is looking to add a loyal and handsome four-legged friend to their family. Please consider adopting me. I will be eternally grateful!
Echo is neutered, up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccinations, and microchipped.
