It's Been Such a Long Time for Echo!

Won't someone please take a second look at our boy Echo? He has come such a long way since being in foster care. Although he has to take two medications daily, he is stabilized wit his thyroid and Cushings disease and is enjoying life. If you have ever had the privilege of caring for a senior, then you have probably gone through periods of 4 different pills, special food, special supplements and have become a walking reference guide for food items to hide pills. By the way, my favorite standby last plan is and always will be Gerber Graduates Chicken Hot Dogs. Stuff a pill down a piece of one of these and it and the chicken are swallowed whole. Anyway, back to Echo who takes his 2 pills a day very easily. When you think about it, 2 pills a day is not a lot in the grand scheme of companion pet care.

Cushing's disease is a condition in which the pituitary gland releases too much of a hormone called ATCH. Please type Canine Cushings Disease into your favorite search engine and you will get more information than you would ever have time to read.

Echo is such a sweet boy who loves his 3 boston siblings and is particularly fond of his youngest brother. Echo is also a talker. Her sits at his foster Mom's feet and makes a variety of sounds to engage in conversation. Echo may be a dog that you can teach to talk like the famous You Tube clips of dogs saying Yi Rove Ewe and I Rannntt Wit!

Echo would so love to have the stability and permanence of a forever home. You can tell from these updated pictures that he feels good, has a beautiful coat and a happy face. If you are looking for a snuggle bug with a few issues but with lots of love and none of the puppy madness, you may be the one that Echo has been waiting for.
