This handsome gent is Archimedes, or Archie for short. He is a purebred Australian Cattledog who is about 2 years old and weighs about 50 pounds. Archie is smart. In rescue, he has learned sit, stay and come. He is house and crate trained. Archie needs a polite introduction to folks, and he is a typical punky ACD. He is mouthy and doesn't like lots of activity in his home, so no kids for his adoptive family. Archie lived with another Cattledog and he played well with her. He is fine on his own or with a female dog sibling. Archie would be fun for adventures. He is good on leash and likes car rides. He likes to fetch, and thinks that keep away is fun. Archie will make the right person an amazing dog. He requires someone who has Cattledog or herder savvy. He will appreciate someone who keeps him busy. If you are not a solid leader, this is not your dog. If you have a busy household with lots of visitors, that won't work. He will really blossom with someone who continues the work his fosters have done in training Archie. Archie is neutered, microchipped, and he is up to date on vaccinations.. We do not ship our dogs. He is available for a meeting and adoption in SoCal. For this dog, the adopter must live in SoCal. No long distance adoptions. A home visit and vet reference are required.
