Echo is one of the goofiest, smooshiest, cuddliest hunks you will ever meet. Without fail, when volunteers bring Echo to the play yard, he jumps into the baby pools for endless splashes and belly-flops. He’s a big goofball and loves to run around with a toy and entertain himself by tossing it around on his own. After, he’ll be sure to cuddle up on your lap for some of those precious snuggles. Echo loves to learn new things and is very responsive to training. He always has a smile on his face. Echo will certainly bring joy and laughter to your life. Echo has been at APS since Nov. 30, 2022. Come meet this guy – we have no reason to believe you won’t fall in love.
