Archey has an application in progress
Sponsored by Mandy and Pedro, in celebration of their upcoming wedding.
My foster mom says that my ears make her laugh and smile as they are a little unpredictable. One minute both are up, then one is up and one is down then both are down. I am not sure what she is talking about but it makes my tail wag when she laughs, smiles and talks to me.
At one point in my life everything was good, I lived with other dogs and I was part of a family; then my person became ill and had to go into a nursing home. I was left alone in my home with my other furry siblings for quite some time and people would come in once a day to feed us. I am hoping that is all behind me now as I wait for a forever home where I can be part of a family again.
My foster mom says I am a little nervous in new situations; but that it is understandable after all that I have gone through. During walks, I have not experienced people on bicycles or children skateboarding past me and I will freeze and my foster mom had to talk me through these instances…she says I am doing much better though. Foster mom has said that I have graduated from a crate and I am now in the laundry room in my dog bed. I must say that this pleases me very much! I have missed the contact of people in the last few months that I was so used to having all of the time; however, I am independent and I am not under your feet all of the time. My foster mom said that I would probably do best in a home where someone is not away at work everyday and with children over 12 years of age (due to young kids activity level).
I have another dog in my foster home. He is a small guy that welcomed me and is showing me the ropes. He has been very relaxed and welcoming. I have tried to instigate a little play with him, however, he is a little older than me and he doesn’t seem to want to play with me yet….foster mom says to be patient and this may come. I have finally starting playing on my own, foster mom pretends to chase me and I love it. My energy level is low and my foster mom says I am a calm boy.
I enjoy walks and I am great on a leash. I don’t currently know any commands and foster mom says that I would benefit from some training that would also help build my confidence level up. I have a great appetite and I loves treats too. At night I sleep all through the night and I was pretty insistent that I sleep on my person’s bed; however, foster mom put a nice cozy chair and blankets close to her bed and I am happy to stay there all night long. I love to cuddle on the couch with my people when they watch T.V. and I have not had any accidents while I have been in foster care. I also travel really good in the car.
If you think that I might be a good match for your home, please contact my foster mom Robin at firstname.lastname@example.org
