JACK, age 1.5

JESSIE, age 3.5

THEO, age 8

Located in central NJ, Monmouth County

JACK, 1.5 yrs old, is looking for that special home or long term foster that can show him that life is good!! Jack started to develop some OCD tendencies and some reactivity so ECHO is looking for a foster home that can assist him with positive behavior modification. We personally met with today and he is quite a lovely boy and could be an awesome dog in the right hands. He met one of our stable, secure female dogs and he was absolutely fine with her. He is not aggressive; I would term him “socially inept”. Jack’s first foster home did a wonderful job of counter conditioning some of his quirks and this would need to be continued in his next foster home or adopted home. Jack is a quick learner and loves to do tricks, he seeks praise and wants to be right. He just needs to be shown how. He also needs mental and physical daily exercise. He is 1 1/2 years old and a big boy with sports potential with the right training. He is not for a couch potato home; he needs an active lifestyle.

If you are well versed in behavior modification and herding dog tendencies, and would like to foster this very special boy, please email us at ECHO

Jack is not for the first time dog owner nor anybody who has not had a special-needs dog. He would do best in a household as a solo dog , or with a confident, stable female dog of medium size, or a laid back male dog. He’s not for a household with cats, small dogs or children.

Located in New Hampshire

JESSIE is a 3 ˝ year old Border Collie mix. Jessie is a sweet sensitive girl. She is looking for a confident and experienced owner. Can be nervous to new situations. Is excellent for the groomer and is crate trained. Is safe off leash once she is familiar with you has an excellent recall and knows basic commands. She has had light agility training and it helped greatly in building her confidence. She is on fluoxetine once daily. Jessie can be with other dogs but is selective and can be reactive if she is uncomfortable. She would prefer a home without children. If you would like more information, please contact Haley at 603-313-8315.

Located in New York 

THEO is perfect for someone with an active lifestyle who adores the great outdoors and a commitment to their loving pup! He is an extremely smart 8 year old boy who would prefer to meet his potential adopter a few times before going home. Theo is an affectionate boy, but on his own terms. Theo is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccinations.

For more information on Theo, please reach out to

Please be aware that you need to check people out before handing over your dog to someone you do not know. There are unscrupulous people who appear to be good adopters so be cautious and check references, especially asking for a neighbor's phone number so you can be sure that the information about them is accurate.

We recommend a TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP agreement so that you can have some written agreement about your dog's future situation in the event it does not work out for the person to keep the dog. It is important to insure that your dog does not eventually land in a shelter where he or she could be euthanized. Instead, the person agrees in writing to notify you so that you can then step in and take an appropriate course of action.
