echo, chief happiness officer

Echo is a 9-year-old Great Dane mix who answers to “Princess.” Weighing in at 83 pounds, she is 100% a smart, snuggly, diva of a dog. Her favorites include vegetable treats (red bell pepper, carrots, celery, cherry tomatoes), car rides, and visits from the neighbor kids. Echo never turns down a pup treat at the drive-thru and will definitely let you know when dinner is served 5 minutes late.

sunny, chief hugging officer

Sunny is a Great Dane born April 1, 2022 who answers to “Sunny Bunny.” She has a lot more growing to do and at 8 months old weighs in at 94 pounds. Sunny has no idea how big she is and maybe even thinks she is a cat. Training is going well, she loves walks and car rides, gives the best hugs ever, and is afraid of everything just like a Great Dane should be.
