About Archie

Australian Cattle Dog mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

ARCHIE is an affectionate, playful 2.5 year old Australian cattle dog mix looking for a home with a comfy couch, a family to take him on adventures. He has a great energy level where he loves running around as much as cuddling up on the couch. Will make a great walking, hiking and/or adventure buddy. Happiest around his people and dog pack, but still can be a little skittish with loud, unexpected noises. Dog friendly boy who enjoys playing and running around with other dogs his size or larger. He would be happy as an only dog getting all of your attention or with a dog buddy. He and the dog in his foster home play, run and nap together everyday. Archie has recently discovered the joys of playing with squeaky toys. He'll take a bunch out of the dog toy bin and entertain you with them and his silly zoomies. He was not treated well the first part of his life, so it does take him a little bit to trust people. He warmed up immediately to the women and kids in his foster home, but he is more apprehensive about men. Once he's figured out that a person is a friend, he is super affectionate. Housetrained and crate trained. Child friendly guy who adores his 12 year old human foster sister. We are recommending children over 5, because he can be silly at times and bump into things, knocking littles over. Sleeps through the night on his own bed in foster's room. Walks well on leash using a harness. Quick learner who knows commands 'sit, off, down, come' and working on 'wait'. He will nibble on a blanket, pillow, pants you're wearing, but it's in a cute, affectionate way. He doesn't tear them, dog toys or dig. Rarely barks, but will alert you to strangers at your door. Rides ok in the car crated or tethered, because he gets excited and will want to help you drive. Not a fan of cats, vacuum cleaners and trash bags. Only homes with a fenced yard that will give him regular exercise will be considered. Archie is 38 lbs, microchipped, neutered, up to date on vaccines, including rabies, heartworm negative and on prevention. In addition to his adoption fee, there is a transport fee to bring this handsome boy to Colorado or the PNW.
