Echo (Gosch's Amarriah), Born December 30, 1996 - Died January 8, 2005
Echo died on January 8, 2005. Echo was a female from our first litter out of Akita back in 1996. Echo was NAVHDA Natural Ability tested on April 25, 1998. She earned a Prize 3, three litters, one in August 1999, one in March of 2001, and her last was in August 2002. She has had 11 all three times, 30 out of 33 pups were raised successfully. Our March 2001 litter had enough pups NAVHDA tested to get a NAVHDA Natural Ability Breeders Award and an SMCNA Breeders Award. Echo is at the maximum allowable height and her hunting weight is about 54 lbs. She has very good conformation as well as an excellent temperament. She has the roan coloration, as opposed to the brown and white (Whip), like her mother. Except for her size, she was in fact almost a carbon copy of her mother in temperament and mannerisms.
