archie has really settled well, considering the number of changes this wee fella has had in his life. He likes all the dogs here at home and more importantly all my guys like him. One of my staffs experiences a level of fear around new dogs but he took to Archie really well. Archie has been great with every dog we have met out on walks and plays to the level of the dog he meets. He is gentle when playing with us humans and loves a cuddle. love1

He has had a couple of accidents indoors but I think this is more not knowing the schedule than any more permanent issue.

He walks well on the lead but does have a very keen interest on certain motor bikes. If he were able , he would chase them. We are working on this and have all ready taken him down to a bike rally and with the help of some really great bikers , had him around lots of machines starting up and pulling off. We will need to repeat this with him regularly.

Archie loves food and I have to use a gobble bowl to slow him down. He has on a couple of occasions been possessive of his food but we are also working on this.

We are really enjoying having this fella with us but really hope that a permanent forever home is coming his way. He really deserves it. please1

PostSubject: Archie Update   Sun Jun 10, 2012 8:40 am

Archie has continued to settle well. He initially barked when we went outside or left the house but this has ceased. He barks to come out in the garden but thats because he wants a play and not anxiety led.

He has had no further accidents in the house. He continues to walk well and has met everydog with health dog manners and respect. He stays away from small dogs that get over excited and bark a lot at him.

Archie was displaying some guarding of his food bowl at meal times. He will now accept us standing next to the bowl and spoon feeding quantities of dinner to him. Next step is taking the bowl away whilst eating. I am positive he will learn to accept this as he has progressed so far and very quickly.
Archie has no issues sharing toys, treats, chews etc. and he is gentle when he plays.

Archie doesnt particularly like mornings! gold tooth infact, he likes sleeping and sometimes has to be coaxed out of bed for a comfort break either before bed or first thing.

He likes a chat and has a range of sounds that he uses to "talk" to you.

We took Archie to Ramsgate and Margate this week. He sat outside a cafe with us and was calm and friendly with everyone we met. He travels well in the car and is just one of those dogs that you can take everywhere with you.

Archie shows some bulldog type stubborness, if he doesnt wanna pee in the rain, you are gonna be there for some time convincing him! But, he is actually a clever dog who is very keen to please and learn. He will make a lovely companion and keep any new family amused.

PostSubject: Archie Update   Wed Jun 27, 2012 1:51 am

this fella is such a good boy , he is so keen to learn to do the right thing. We can now move his food bowl around, he is eating more slowly and has shown no guarding around his food. yesterday, I was chopping some chicken carcasses (as you do) and was called away to deal with the neighbours escaped dogs. I left a whole chuck cascass on the side, easily within reach, (bad fosterer!) when I returned, Archie had not touched it, he was dribbling loads, but hadnt taken a morsel big smile

Archie walks well on the lead, he can start off a bit pully but with a few gentle reminders, he falls back by your side. He is still interested in motor bikes but with time I am certain this will lessen. Archie likes a good walk, he's a dog who will need at least an hour a day and playtime too.

We have met no dog he dislikes, a few have been reactive to him and his bulldog stare but he just backs away if this is the case.

Archie is an affectionate boy, he loves a massage and a cuddle. He loves his sleep and settles well when we go out.

Archie is a sound boy who just needs a family who will be fair and consistant with him. I hope he finds this soon so that he can settle finally blow kiss

Archie does have so much to offer. He "hurt" his paw today on a prickly weed in the garden. tthe first thing the big lump did was come running up for a hug straight away, some scary bulldog ,he is Wink

the escaped dogs were fine, they went off on a jolly up the road, a great dane, labradoodle and miniture dachshund, chasing the local cats! they dont harm them at all, just like the fun of it gold tooth

what can I add about Archie, he is just a lovely boy . He is more and more relaxed around his food, the pace of eating has slowed we are able to place our hands on and in the bowl when he eats. I have an area near us that is completely fenced in but where he can run along a track for about 2 miles. When off lead here his recall is really good. There are rabbits and sheep on the other side of the fencing and although curious he is not focused on them. We are still working on his like of bikes, so are giving him lots of road walks. Archie is always keen to greet young children, especially boys, so clearly has happy associations there.
Archie loves playing, he is very nimble and can jump a good height, luckily he has good judgement . He also LOVES sleeping, more than any other dog I have had. He is the youngest here sleeps the most, rising at the last possible moment in the morning gold tooth Archie is so ready for his forever home now. I feel sad to see him settling so very well as I know he will have to go through another change, but it will be so good to know that he will find his forever home. blow kiss

Archie visited The Brook Cainine Hydrotherapy Centre last night for a swim:

They've been great with our dogs and I'd highly recommend them
