OTHER INFO: Archie was rescued from the streets, where it’s believed he was trying to survive for some time as he was in a terrible state when rescued.
Archie was starved and very emaciated, sick with anaemia and had a bad tummy. After a little while he stopped eating and after a scan, they discovered that his liver was not functioning properly. He was given food and treatment to support his liver. He also had burnt paws from the hot ground and his fur was completely matted and filthy. He spent 8 weeks recovering and lived in a foster home where they took care of him and helped to heal his paws with daily treatment.
Archie was adopted and travelled to the UK where he was in a home for 18 months but was sadly returned to kennels where he became a long termer so we decided that he would benefit from spending time with Joy at the centre where he has been for some time now.
Archie will need an active, experienced home. He is great with people and forms good bonds but can be a little wary of strangers at first.
Archie loves his walks, running zoomies and playing ball. He is fully harness and muzzle trained and also walks very well with a head collar.
Archie is a friendly, happy boy who would do really well in the right home.
