Four-year old Archie is a 71-pound Aussie mix who is highly motivated by play with
squeaky and bone-shaped toys.
Archie was taken in as a stray when his owner passed away, and has adapted well to life at the POOCH kennels. He's good with big dogs, but will chase little ones. He's not yet been tested with cats.
Due to his size and chasing instincts, we think his next home should be a family of adults, possibly with older children.
UPDATE FROM ARCHIE: "I have passed my CGC and would like to be in my new home by Halloween!"
