Hi, I&#;m Echo. I am a beautiful 5 yr old female German Shepherd who was surrendered, along with my friend Duchess. Because no foster homes for large dogs were available, we had to be put into a kennel, which was very traumatic.
However, I am now in a loving foster home -I love it! I am eating up the human attention. I absolutely love my ball and I&#;ll bring it and sit patiently for it to be tossed in the air so I can catch it. I know the word &#;bedtime&#;, &#;walk and find your ball&#; and &#;sit&#; very well. I am learning the off command, when I want to jump on someone or on the counter. When I hear &#;off&#; I go to a sit position and wait for my well deserved praise and attention. I know when I am behaving well and will go sit by the cookie jar when I think I&#;ve done well. Although I do love attention, I am very happy to just be in bed myself watching over my ball.
My foster mom says I am getting really good on walks, I do seem very uneasy when we first leave, but I calm right down after a short while. I can&#;t be unleashed or I&#;ll run! I do have some leash aggression, so my foster mom is working on this with me. I am a good guard dog and let you know if anything or anyone comes near the yard &#; but I&#;d be more likely to lick them to death than hurt them! don&#;t like cats or small animals, I go nuts when I see animals like squirrels. I am uneasy around traffic and don&#;t like sirens.
My foster mom recommends that I be the only dog in a home, and have an owner with good skills to help me continue with my training.
My manners are improving so much, and I now realize that by greeting people by sitting gets me better attention than jumping on them! I am very eager to please.
This is a Courtesy post for another rescue but all inquiries will be forwarded to the right people.
