Echo, an adoptable dog in Fryeburg, Maine

Echo is adoptable at Harvest Hills Animal Shelter

Sweet Echo has been at Harvest Hills Animal Shelter for over a year. She’s an older gal (the shelter says 10-11), but she acted like a much younger dog when I met her. She was excited to be outside and have the opportunity to get attention from people.  She loves attention and was quite exuberant at the prospect of getting some. But she was able to pose for a few photos.

Echo, and adoptable senior in Maine

Echo’s life hasn’t been the easiest till now, and this special gal deserves to live out her golden years in a home that will give her the love that she craves and deserves.

After doing some photos where she had to stay in place — which is hard for a girl who wants to have fun and get as much attention as she can — we let her run around. And boy, did she run! She got the zoomies several times and was super cute to watch. These pictures were after she slowed down a little bit. I thought I had gotten her ears up in the posed pictures, but once she was free to run around they REALLY stood up in the air.
How adorable are those ears?!

Echo loves to run and play

Or sometimes, only one stood up.

Echo is awaiting her forever home

AND, Echo’s adoption comes with a 6 week training class (I assume that’s if you live in that area).

Echo is smart, loving, and just wants to have a home of her own where she gets as much love as she gives.

Echo needs to be an only pet in an adult home. That’s probably the reason she is still at the shelter, but when the right person comes along she will make someone very happy.
Are you that person?
And if you’re not, please share to spread the word and help Echo find her perfect home.

Roger, an adoptable senior in Freeport, Maine

adoptable lab mix

After spending half an hour with Roger, I couldn’t imagine why he has been waiting for a home for so long. Yes, he’s 10 years old but he’s very active and has loads of personality. He gets along with other dogs would fit right into family life. I hear he’s fine with cats, too.

Roger is a Lab/Hound mix, tall and long. He loves his toys and he enjoys being part of the pack with the resident dogs in his foster home. The younger Labs in the house are very playful, and for the most part when I was there he kept up with running around with them and being involved in playtime. Roger surprised me more than once by jumping into the air to try to catch a snowball, many times leaping right up out of the frame of my camera. He was not the most accurate catcher, but he had fun trying and repeatedly surprised me with his athleticism. He did not seem 10 years old!

In the house he was happy to chillax on a cushy dog bed with his toys, just happy to be near his foster family. If folks are overlooking him because of his age, they are really missing out because this guy seems like an easygoing and fun dog to have around. He enjoys outdoor activity with dogs and people, and loves going for walks in the woods but doesn’t need a crazy amount of exercise. He loves to be around people and easygoing dogs.
