Archie is a 3-year-old male Cross-Breed. He is currently in South Wales. He loves to have a fuss and cuddles once he gets to know you. He is described as a real softie at heart and a smart cookie, he will figure out ways to entice you to give him treats! His favorites are dental sticks, carrots, and most fruit other than berries.

He is a huge fan of butter so be warned, he will find a way to get to it if it’s left out! Archie loves to sunbathe or lay in front of the fire on a winter’s evening. He isn’t a fan of being hosed down after getting mucky. Archie can be unsure of strangers and can find children unpredictable, which frightens him and can lead him to become defensive of himself and his owners, he will require an experienced adult-only home.

Once he gets to know people and realizes they mean him no harm, he is friendly and will beg for attention and fuss. Archie currently lives with another dog and loves to play chase, he sometimes plays with toys, but this is to get the resident’s dog’s attention to play with him. He can share his home with another playful dog with slow and sensible introductions with the ability to separate.

Archie would prefer a cat-free home. Archie is not a fan of having his collar and lead put on, but now associates it with his walks and will allow it to be put on and gets excited to go out. Archie can be reactive towards strangers and unknown dogs whilst out, particularly if he believes he is in charge, so will need continued boundaries regarding this.

Fostering a rescue dog is not something to take on lightly, they need full commitment and a lot of work and patience to allow them to blossom. There may be many challenges to overcome so please ensure full commitment before applying. Archie is fully toilet trained and sleeps well in his bed downstairs overnight. Archie is not crate trained but will go in one, if necessary, without issue.

Archie has not shown destructive behaviors previously, however, he will get into the recycling bin at times. Archie does not struggle with separation anxiety and can be left for periods of around 5 hours. Please understand this could change in a new environment. We always advise sensible and slow introductions to family members and other pets.
