Echo the White Shepherd ~ Adopted

Echo the White Shepherd ~ Adopted

Last week Gisele received an urgent e-mail from Becky asking for her help.  It seemed that a Florida rescue had agreed to take a 10-month-old German Shepherd, the transport was leaving the next day, the the rescue had just pulled out.  Could we help?  Could we take the dog?  Becky has done so much for us in the past, we were loathe to say no.  And Lindsey had recently told Gisele she’d love to foster German Shepherds.   And then we saw photos of this handsome boy we knew we had to take him.  We simply had to say yes, don’t you think!

So Echo is with Lindsey in Deltona, getting used to family life again.  He is heartworm positive, which we will probably treat with the slow kill method if our vet concurs.  That is no big deal; in fact, it is how I treated my own dog, Gus.

If you are interested in possibly adopting Echo, please review our adoption process and then e-mail me at

05/12/11 Foster Update:  Echo is very good boy, starves affection, is intelligent and very trainable.  He is very good with the other dogs, and Lindsey, his foster likes him very much.   He is not alpha at all.  Lindsey says he has not been properly socialized, and Lindsey is working with him (easy fix).  She says it only takes 2 days for him to adjust to a new home.  She does not feel that he has been abused, and he has not tried to jump her fence once. She also brags on how good he is on leash!

Today was Echo’s day!  He has found his forever home and we are so happy.  Lindsey is on cloud nine.  People wonder how we can foster, how we can “give up” a dog for whom we have cared.  It is because our fosters get to meet the fantastic people who are our adopters, and it makes all the difference! Echo was adopted by Debbie Huff, and he’s living in Melbourne now! I bet he’ll love our Florida Beaches!!!!
