Meet Echo, a very sweet and gentle 7 year-old Border Collie mix male, who was pulled from a high-kill dog pound just before he was due to be euthanized. Thanks to a kind shelter volunteer who saved his life and searched for a rescue to help him find a new home, Echo made the trip to Canine Lifeline. Once he arrived here, he made a trip to the vet for xrays since it looked like he had an old injury to one of his back legs. Indeed, xrays confirmed that Echo had an old injury to his hip and back leg. It has healed on its own and nothing can be done about it now. He’s adjusted very well and although occasionally has a bit of a limp, it really doesn’t bother him. Echo is one of those dogs that’s likely to walk right into your house and make himself at home. He’s been very quiet and well-mannered in his foster home–just a perfect gentleman! Echo does well with other dogs and is over the rowdy puppy behavior so would enjoy a more sedate canine companion or two. Echo is crate-trained and likely to be housetrained as well. He weighs about 31 pounds and his adoption fee is $125. Echo’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up-to-date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week trial period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
