From the Foster:
Meet Echo! She is a very sweet senior lady, and her sad eyes punctuated by her eyebrow dots just speak to your soul. She was so timid and scared when she first arrived, but she has already transformed so much in one short week. She absolutely loves to have her ears rubbed and melts right into your hands with her eyes closed. She has also started to show a playful side, bounding after tennis balls and doing quick zooms around the back yard. Don't discount her because of her age!
She is doing great with my two dogs, and will occasionally try her darndest to initiate play with one of them (unfortunately for Echo, it has not been reciprocated). Unfortunately, she gets too fixated on the cat in the house when he is in sight, and it is difficult to break her focus, so I feel she would do best in a cat-free home!
She is crated for the workday (~8 hours), and goes in without much fuss. She keeps it clean and I'm certain she sleeps all day. She also sleeps soundly through the night on her dog bed or on your bed if you'll allow it! She doesn’t signal when she needs to go outside, so she has had a few accidents while we've been home. Once on a consistent schedule, I think she would be fine.
She walks okay on a leash but could use some basic training in that area. She has a tendency to zig zag and when she decides to pull (e.g. when she sees another dog or a squirrel/rabbit), she is strong despite her petite frame. She seems to be pretty treat motivated, so that will be great for training.
If you think your home would a good match for Echo, apply today to meet her!
