Archie – Adopted!!!

Bio

born ~July 2017


25 lbs.


crate trained


learning housebreaking


Introducing Archie! Archie is a Wired Hair Dachshund/Gold Retriever mix, and what a combination that makes! With his beautiful, golden coat and his short legs and scruffy face, he is something else! Archis is still a young chap at about 6 months old and is only about 25lbs. Once he’s full grown, he’ll probably be in the high 30’s or low 40’s.

The short pups are always the funniest, waddling around at such a disproportionate size. Archie absolutely loves playing with other dogs and has learned to listen to his bossy foster siblings. Playing with Noel is one of his favorite past times and he lets her jump all over him. He has an elderly 4-legged friend in the house too so he is great with. So basically Archie will fit in with any type of family 😊 He’s even met a toddler (human) before and did great!

Some dogs love the crate, others hate it. Archie is a lover! At night, he keeps his crate clean and doesn’t make a peep. If Foster Mom needs some down time or just wants paws off the floor so she can clean, Archie will happily take a nap in his crate. Remember, he’s still pretty young and who knows what his life was like before he came to the ACR, so there’s a learning curve for some things, like housebreaking. While he’s doing really well, Foster Mom finds the occasional puddle as he has no signal for wanting to go outside.

How is Archie’s confidence, you ask? Great! While he seemed extremely shy at the shelter, he has come out of his shell immensely. And that makes sense, because the shelter can be a very scary place for a new pup. Now that Archie has settled into his foster home, he’s a whole different dog – approaching strangers like nobody’s business, wagging his tail and looking for pets, just seeking out the love! In the beginning he would piddle (the act of urinating when scared or overwhelmed, but just a small puddle). Now, no more! Archie is just proving to be an all-around great dog!

Overall, Archie’s demeanor is pretty alert. He wants to play with other dogs but is willing to play with toys or just relax when separated. Some backyard time, dog park trips or regular walks is enough exercise to hold this bloke over. A regular mix of mental stimulation and physical exercise is always a good idea, but Archie doesn’t need anything crazy. This happy-go-lucky, bouncy boy is just excited for his new adventures and all the friends that come with them!

Once Archie settles into his new home (which will literally take no time at all!), he’ll take on the ‘I’m ok with everything’ attitude and go with the flow. His loving personality and playful disposition will have any family excited to have him around!
