Meet Archie! He’s a super cute 4-year-old, 20-pound Jack Russell Terrier.
Archie has the potential to be a great little dog. He is currently working on some issues stemming from abuse in his past. At his former home, he was locked in a crate all day and night for a whole year (only let out for short potty breaks). He was also teased a lot. Volunteers here have been working with him, and he has been making progress.
Archie is on the high end of the excitability range for an already-excitable breed, so he needs a calm environment with patient people to work with him. He is currently in a foster home, where he is receiving much-needed time and attention.
Archie is crate and housetrained..
