Archie is a male 7 year old American bulldog cross staffie. He has come from the pound so we have little background information on him. He came to the rescue underweight and with some skin sores. He has put on 3 kg now and weighs around 30kg, his sores are also healing. Archie has an amazing personality and shows so much love to everyone. He has a heart of pure gold and loves to have cuddles. Despite being 7 he looks and acts 4! He can be a little jumpy when he first meets people and is excited but is learning that all four paws on the ground is best. Due to this he can live with children aged 10 plus, this can be lowered pending on their experience with dogs. Archie knows some basic training such as sit but would like to learn more with his new home. He is house and crate trained, neutered and microchipped. Archie doesn’t like being left alone for long periods of time so would like his new owner to leave him for no longer that 2 hours to start off with and then through training extend this until he is comfortable being alone for 4 hours. Archie is dog friendly however gets very excited when meeting them or if he sees one on a walk. He could live with another well matched pal pending on a pre meet up. We are unsure of his temperament with cats but believe he will be friendly yet may chase, a tester day can be arranged for him. On walks Archie does pull a bit but with further training will walk nicely.
He is such a friendly and loving boy with a bright future. There will never be a dull moment with Archie in your life!
.If you are interested in viewing a dog then please message or call to arrange a day to come along to the rescue. If you're not sure which dog you would like to see then just ask, tell us what you're looking for eg. If you have another dog, age of children (we do not have a minimum age), activity requirements (active, lazy), how long the dog will be left alone (we do ask that if it is anymore than 6-7 hours then someone must come in between to check on the dog and let them out and give them some company. Just let us know what your lifestyle is and we will tell you which dogs may be suited to you.
.After a meet up with Jan and the dog at the rescue and if you decide that you would like to adopt and Jan agrees then you will arrange a day for Jan to come round for a home check/ deliver the dog to you. You don't need to decide on the day and can of course have a think about it as it's not a decision to rush.
. If there are many people interested in a dog then it is NOT first come first served. We will meet as many people as possible and then choose which would be best for the dog so please do not be disheartened if this is the situation
.A donation of £150-£200 is required to cover the cost of neutering
. ongoing support is always provided if needed
. if at any time the dog cannot be kept it must be returned to the rescue
. All of our dogs are neutered and microchipped. Dogs under 14 months will need to be briefly returned to be neutered once they are old enough
