He's all ears & personality !

Meet Archibald

Archie is a 2ish mixed breed boy who is living his best life. This does not mean his life or current situation is perfect but from where he came from it’s the best he has had. When I picked up Archie he was on Death Row and he had a clock ticking on his life. It was not his fault. He had come from a hoarding case and the county he grew up in did not have the resources to care for all the dogs that needed help so he was scheduled to be a statistic. I think he knows this but if not I do and it makes our time more enjoyable seeing him grow and learn in a new environment with a second chance at life.

Archie is not without flaws but neither am I (per my wife). Archie is doing well  with the other dogs in his foster home. Definitely not with cats. He does show some prey drive with rabbits and squirrels on walks and hikes but not too much more than any other dog his age. Archie can also be a little mouthy and while he does not bite, he likes to play a little rough but he does respond very well to correction when this happens.

With that being said he is also a fast learner and has shown great improvement (unlike me per my wife). He is potty trained (his first 2 days were rough but no messes since) and has responded very well to consistent routine and attention. He can sit and stay and is walking much better with his harness. He can be a ball of energy but he tires pretty quickly and then likes to just chill after hikes and walks. Archie is a happy guy who likes to please and does best when he has something to do and loves just hanging out with any human who can give him some attention.

If you are looking for a good buddy who will appreciate your love and friendship then please let us now when you would like to meet Mr. Archibald.
