Echo is 8 yrs old. 'Google' says this breed can live until 12 - 15 yrs so be has plenty of time left.
Echo is a gentle and friendly dog especially with his family. He is also very smart, outgoing, alert and reliable. He is adored for his loving nature and smoochy smile.
Echo needs a medium to large secure yard. As he loves human company he would love a home with active seniors, retirees or middle aged people with older kids. We also recommend he is the only dog in the home.
He will not suit homes where residents are very young, frail, elderly or time poor. This breed is not recommended for novice dog owners.
Echo is fine on walks when on a lead as long as his owner is in control.
He will need time to warm to the dogs of family members. He hasn't spent much time with other dogs off lead.
Due to his size we recommend any kids be teenagers or older and only if gentle and calm.
Echo loves his strolls but is also happy with play-time at home.
How is this dog on a lead?
Like most dogs Echo starts off pulling but settles down. As he is a strong dog he requires a strong owner and without mobility issues.
How is this dog off the lead?
Echo has a tendency to take off.
Nuisance barker or destructive?
Tolerance to being alone.
Yes – he usually sleeps alone.
Echo loves to be included in what his family are doing. He will follow you around the garden and sit by your side when it is time for a cuppa. He is very affectionate and thrives on cuddles, pats and scratches.
During storms Echo will look for human company for a little reassurance. Like many dogs he does not like strangers rushing into his space.

If you are interested in a dog we invite you to submit an application form so we can learn more about your circumstances. This is to ensure we match the right dog to the best home. (one form per family - not per dog) http://www.dogadoption.org.au/expression-of-interest.html
This is for the benefit of both the dog and the potential new owner/s. It also saves time and uses limited resources more effectively.
Once the essential criteria is confirmed we put you in touch with the carer for a more detailed chat with a view of meeting the dog/s.
If you decide to proceed with the adoption we make a time for a house check.
The adoption fee is then paid (there is a 2 week cooling off period.) Please note we do not usually allow trials.
