My name is Archie and I’m a sweet, family-loving and good natured little puppy of six months – about 13 pounds of love with a great personality and a happy smile – a darling little guy who gets along with everyone! I have a cream colored coat, apricot colored ears, hair (not fur) and am a mix of cocker spaniel, dachshund and cuteness.
I love people of all shapes and sizes, and especially when they pay attention to ME! I come running with joy when any person appears on the horizon, then I give lots of doggy kisses and become a cuddling fool! Nothing makes me happier than that – that, and playing with other FurKids!
Mom says that I am as sweet as can be and a real cuddle bug. (Silly Mom, I’m not a bug at all, just a furkid full of love for everyone I meet.) Dad says I’m a diamond in the rough and a little guy with great potential! (Thanks, Dad!)
My doggy foster sisters and brothers are teaching me how to play and to be respectful of something they call ‘boundaries’ (I think that means I need to understand when they want to play and when they want to rest!) We have so much fun together! Toys, and ‘specially squeaky toys, are already my favorites, along with things to chew like yak bones. Why I never met a toy I didn’t like, either! And when I get tired, I curl up like the sweet little guy I am and take a nap. Mom says that makes the cutest picture!
I know you will know how smart I am when I tell you I’m already housebroken (although I haven’t broken a thing!) ride happily in the car and am ready to go for walks. At night, when all the excitement and fun of the day is over, I curl up and sleep quietly in my crate.
My Ideal Home:
- Someone home most of the time
- Another active, playful dog around my age
- Another dog to show me the ropes
- A family with kids around 5 or older would be great!
- Have had dogs as an adult
- Recent/current dog experience
- Appreciate puppy energy
Of course, being just a young pup, I have lots to learn, and I’m looking for a forever family to learn with me. Mom and Dad think that I would do great in any family situation. If I sound like the kind of boy you are looking for, please complete our adoption application at https://bichonfurkids.org/adoption/ and we will get back to you. Please also note that if you do not meet the criteria for my forever home, you will not hear back from us. (Sorry. We are all volunteers and have other FurKids to save and place, too. Thanks for understanding!).
Wags and hugs,
Adorable, Affectionate and Affable Archie
