Possibly, the AB is really just another "mongrel" breed. or as they put it cross breed for vigour? The stance instantly brings to mind 2 dogs, Bulldog and English bull Terrier, but the skull shows no EBT characteristics.

So brought as an AB is more than likely, but to me AB's are merely Bulldog crosses, just as PBT are staffie crosses.

Most AB's of the so called standard type look like boxers...!!!!!!! all three forms seem to have lost that broad stance seen in this pup.

I would bet there are no papers from any recognised org.

Still if we assume its either the basic characteristics are the same.

So far what I have noticed about Archie

If he meets a reactive dog he will try and get away from it, friendly dogs he wants to play with

Met a cat in the vets and wanted to play with it when it hissed he just moved away and looked for something else to do

In car to start nightmare wanted to come upfront with me, but after 10 minutes settled and just looked out of the window

Has had no lead training or been taught any manners,

Excitable dog but nothing bad about him just needs training

Love this soppy little fella.

He's such a cutie!

And he has the wobbliest bum in the world when he walks! laughing

Archie walks pretty well on the lead, hes friendly, playful, loving &
just generally full of scruminess.

Really hope some lucky person snaps him up soon love1

Person tries to get dog to lie down by physical pushing Archie will easily go into a down, and then roll onto his back while showing appeasing behaviours
Person tries to get dog to roll over on its back by physical manipulation Archie will roll onto his back his very little effort and again shows appeasing behaviours
Person tries to groom dog’s head , torso, or legs (ie other than feet) Archie sees grooming as a game and tries to play and mouth the brush
Person touches dog’s feet or uses comb or scissors on dog’s feet Archie sees prolong periods of touch as a game and can become very excited, trying to jump up and mouth your hands

Dog walks past unfamiliar reactive dog Same as above and Archie on an occasion has show submissive urination
Archie is a real puppy and needs to be taught a lot. If Archie is left to his own devices Archie has the potential to be and real handful and out of control. I do not feel Archie should be homed with any child under the age of 15 years old, but to his current over excitement and mouthing. (All these behaviours were shown at the time of this assessment conducted by Shaun Aldridge (Ruff Diamond Dog Training); however these behaviours may change in different circumstances.)

PostSubject: Walking with Archie   Wed Jan 11, 2012 4:01 am

Archie or Captain Wiggles as I have nicknamed him went walking with the group last night. As usual he behaved really well. He walks with a halti and occasionally tries to rub it off in grass ( that wont work Wiggles! no ) and doesnt pull at all. He likes to see the other dogs but most of all just enjoys being out with the other dogs and walkers. He is a soppy fella who is happy to lean in for a good rub hug

I hope Archie the wiggler gets a home soon x

Got this


Quote :
Archie is a star. He's been told off a couple of times by Alfie but it seems to have done the trick! He's very good indoors and loves his toys. He loves the footballs in the garden and charges up and down. We've met a couple of dogs on our walks and he's been very well behaved. He learns very quickly and I think we are going to have great fun training him. Thank you Sharon and I will keep updated.
