When you see this Great Dane named Echo, you may be intimidated until you find out she is actually the epitome of a gentle giant. See, we know this to be true because she has a little girl as her best friend. And you won't believe your eyes when you see the adorable picture and watch the video.
Echo's life didn't start out great, in fact, she had a rough start. She is deaf and has limited sight in both eyes, so her previous owner wanted to put her down as it is obviously a hard way to live for any dog, but it is certainly no reason to be put down. She could still live a great life if she were placed in a loving home.
That's when Marion Dwyer fell in love with Echo and decided to adopt her in 2014. Not long after she had adopted Echo, Dwyer discovered that she was pregnant! It is not ideal to have a rescue dog and a baby in the same house. Because you don't know the history of the rescue dog it can be concerning to have a brand new baby around a dog you don’t know well.
Marion took a risk, however, and kept Echo. She was determined that her dog and her baby would be the best friends. Boy, was she right! From the time her daughter Jennie was born, she and Echo have been inseparable and have formed the sweetest and cutest bond.
They do everything together. Jennie even takes Echo on walks. Jennie is very insistent on holding the leash when she goes on walks with her best friend. Jennie is also learning to sign so that her dog will understand commands better. What an amazing love these two have for each other. Watch the video, below, and see the beautiful friendship for yourself.
