Meet Archie! This big handsome 1-1/2 year old purebred Aussie is yearning for his forever home. Archie is house trained, crate trained and walks well on a leash! Currently Archie just uses his crate for a napping area as he is trustworthy loose in the house when his foster family is not at home. Archie is affectionate and loves belly and back scratches. He seeks out the company of his people and is a loyal companion. Archie is agile and fast and loves to entertain himself playing with toys or with his person.

Due to Archie's strong herding instincts, he requires a 6' privacy fence in his new home. Archie will do best with an active adult family, preferably with aussie or herding breed experience who will keep him busy. Archie is protective of his family and home, due to this we feel he should be crated or given a safe room while he works on meeting visitors Archie will benefit from the experience of obedience classes with his new person for both attention bonding and obedience!

Archie's adoption fee is $300 plus MN tax to an approved home
