Currently in Foster but not available
Currently, we have Fire and Jack in Foster homes and they are being worked with so they can someday have a chance at a happy life.
As soon as we have pictures and information on Fire it will be added. Thank you for your patience as these poor souls try to find their way in the world.
Duchess is a 3-year-old spayed female ACD from the CACC. She was picked up as a "stray". She weighs approximately 32p pounds, is UTD on shots, housebroken, and HW negative. She has a moderate energy level and would do well in an active household (hiking etc) or sports home (tricks, nose work, agility, etc) She is very food motivated. At home, she is very engaging, loves cuddling, being on the couch or the bed. She likes toys and will play fetch and tug. As she gets more comfortable, she is getting better about bringing the toy back. When introduced to new people or locations, Duchess tends to be nervous. Duchess would do best in a home without cats and small children, as she has typical herding dog tendencies. (ie: she is inclined to come up behind and grab a pant leg, especially when she is more excited). She gets along well with other dogs but does tend to get a bit nippy when excited. Duchess does tend to get a bit car sick and her foster mom has been giving her Bonnine for car sickness, so she isn’t throwing up anymore, but she does still drool. Foster mom has enrolled Duchess in a Manners class at Y2K9s. She can do everything asked of her, but she is still very nervous of being anywhere but home. Duchess is still learning the importance of a reliable recall and that training must be continued. She knows sit, down, stay and watch, as well as some tricks.
Unfortunately, Jack, the border collie is coming back to ECHO. His new owners tried very hard, but Jack’s prey drive was starting to get the better of him and the owners were concerned about the safety of their livestock.
I really want Jack to go to someone I know or a friend of someone I know. This dog cannot get bounced around anymore.￼... He needs a SOLID COMMITMENT.
Jack is an approximately 20-month-old neutered male border collie, on the large side. Very sweet, very athletic, has tons of sports potential! He is not good with small animals, such as chickens, cats or very small dogs. Not recommended for a house with small children, just because of his exuberance. Jack gets along well with dogs who are around the same size as him, again just due to his exuberance. ￼He will need an active family that has herding dog experience. He is not for the first-time dog owner. He is very toy and food motivated.
ECHO is in need of a foster home ASAP, or a foster to adopt home. If you can help, please ****EMAIL**** us at ECHOrescue@yahoo.com.
