Echo came to the centre via another Branch who were struggling to find him a suitable home. Echo has very specific needs and requirements for his new home.Unfortunately Echo will not be suitable for a first time dog owner as his needs are so specific.
After consultations with our behaviourist the home we are looking for is a working home, either Canicross, Tracking or Working Trials etc, sadly Echo is not suitable to go to a home where he is not given a job to do. Echo is a very smart and athletic dog who will become very frustrated in a normal pet or low activity pet home, so this is just not an option for him.
Echo will need patient and understanding owners who have the time to dedicate into helping this intelligent boy overcome his insecurities and understand life from his point of view. Any potential adopters will need to meet with our behaviourist before adoption and will receive post adoption support from both the Branch and our behaviourist.
We do understand this is a big ask, but for Echo to be successfully adopted out we need to follow the advice from our behaviourist. Once Echo knows you and you know him he really is a lovely lad who has the potential to shine, we just need to find him the suitable home. Echo will need an adult only home.
PLEASE NOTE, we will be collecting Perfect Match Forms and along with the behaviourist selecting the most suitable home for Echo.
