Unlike my first 3 dogs' names, the name 'Echo' doesn't mean anything in Hebrew. I named her 'Echo' because I wanted her to follow in Mayah's footsteps as Alpha (which she showed signs of doing after the first 4 months of having her), and because she howls every time you say her name. Echo is almost too smart for her own good. She is also strong and fast. She is one of my lead dogs. She hates being behind the other dogs, so I had no choice in that matter! She's my most dedicated sled dog, and that started right away. I entered her in her first race when she was 10 months old, and has continued to excel with each run. What a strong Lead Dog.
