Gracie and I are proud to announce that we will be adding a new member to our A Girl and Her Husky team! Echo is a piebald Siberian Husky puppy! He is part of the litter of rescue pups that I wrote about last week. Echo is a handsome and healthy boy and I cannot wait to bring him home! He will be joining our pack in a few weeks.
Echo is a rescue puppy from Releashed Rescue in Georgia. Releashed rescued Echo and his siblings and mom from a hoarding situation here in Georgia. There were over 60 dogs found at the location! You can read more about these dogs and how you can help on their Facebook page. Releashed is also raising funds for some of the medical bills needed for the dogs they rescued. You can find their YouCaring page here. You can also visit Releashed Rescue’s website and see more of their adoptable dogs!
Echo is the largest in his litter and I am told he is the most active as well! We went to visit him on Sunday and he was alert and very adventurous. He just wanted to go explore! I put him back in the play pen with his siblings and he started whining to get back out. How could I say no? 🙂
He played with his siblings and took a nap. Echo is only 5 weeks old right now, so we will not be getting him until he is 8 weeks old. He is already so big!
Gracie loves puppies, so I am confident that she will love Echo! When my parents’ dogs were puppies, she was very gentle and playful with them. She would lay down and let them crawl on her and she would run slow enough for them to keep up! I cannot wait for her to meet Echo. She will be very good at teaching him about the dog world just like she was with Milo and Baxter! Gracie is also typically very good at sharing. She does not have aggression over food or toys. I believe she will love having another husky around!
Below are some photos of Gracie playing with Milo and Baxter as puppies. Please excuse the lower quality, as these photos were taken on a phone camera. (and yes, Gracie is blowing her coat in these photos! LOL)
Echo has definitely already stolen mine and Dylan’s hearts. I mean, how could you not fall in love with this cute face?
I cannot wait to share more about life with a puppy and share pictures of our new baby growing up! Echo will be our first puppy. I got Gracie when she was already a year old. Have you ever raised a puppy before? Do you have any advice for first time puppy owners?
Thanks for reading!
-Katie, Gracie, and soon, Echo 🙂
